    Many smart entrepreneurs prefer to buy an existing business instead of beginning a new one. Buying a business that is already operational will bring many benefits, including an already established product or service, well-trained staff who know the business, and enough success to have kept the company afloat for a period of time. Not having any money to purchase the business will not necessarily keep you from buying it.

    It’s time once again to make much of a simple concept; that two groups with different names, languages and cultures might put aside their old habits, pettiness, and grudges, recognize the overwhelming alignment of their most critical self-interests, and join their complementary strengths to achieve unprecedented peace, harmony, and productivity. That’s the concept behind total productive maintenance (TPM).

    In response to the recent economy’s woes, banks have placed a growing premium on reducing costs and improving operational efficiencies and many banks have turned to lean programs as a useful tool. Most of these banks will find themselves disappointed, however, because few lean initiatives, in our experience, deliver the expected results. The near and longer-term impact on costs proves to be far less than expected, and any gains in efficiency prove to be either temporary or too limited in scope...

    Non Executive Directors used to be caricatured as cronies of the Chairman (who is also a Non Executive Director) or CEO. Fat cats, freeloading members of the "old boy network", retirees who wanted to have somewhere to go other than the golf club for a decent lunch and a chat. Not an attractive scenario and for various reasons, but not least because of numerous serious corporate scandals where shareholders were left unprotected, the whole can of Non Executive worms has been subject to investigation.

    Lean Construction is a way to do more and more with less and less; less effort, less equipment, less time and less space whilst providing customers with exactly what they want. A Lean system, process, and organisation is one that is waste free. Lean is not about size or number of people employed. A reduction in employees may cut costs, and eliminate the waste of those employees, but does not decrease the proportion of waste to value adding within the organisation or process.

    The words "lean marketing" have been one of the buzzwords of business for a few years now, but beneath the buzzword lays a strong, successful and above all common sense strategy. The lean marketing process is actually nothing new. The business tactics it employs are all well-known and widely used. Despite this, most businesses do not follow them in any particular order or manner. What makes lean marketing special is that it organizes its techniques into a coherent, easy to follow strategy.

You have to understand where they are coming from and their individual strengths, weaknesses, fears, and motivations. During the recent global recession, much attention was devoted to the mistakes that sparked the financial and economic crisis, in hopes of not repeating them.
