Many times its not the changes and challenges, it how we face and handle the changes and challenges that bombard our lives.

For thos who have deeply hurted and wounded by the many obstacles of life, it becomes harder and harder to continue to believe or even trust depending on the situation and the history of what has happen. Some people grow cold, heartless, hopeless and uncaring, a few will try to continue to push and believe that a brighter day will approach. When examining performance management systems, we concentrate both on performancexpectations and on the measurement and evaluation of organizational performance. Based on
academic recommendations (e.g. Kaplan–Norton, 1996, 2000), these systems should be strategy-oriented at all levels of the organization – that is, the strategy should not be just a written document having relevance only for the top management and in the long run, but a common platform that governs everyday operation.

While the number of public organizations formulating strategies is increasing,
only some of them commit themselves to develop adequate performance
management systems as well. Aiming to identify the main motives, we carried
out research in Hungarian governmental organizations where performance
management systems (PMS) are under implementation. By using an
institutionalist framework, we found that institutional environment is one of the
principal motivators. Besides, internal change agents are also present and play a
key role in the dissemination of management knowledge. However, both drivers
are inefficient in the lack of sufficient pressure from the technical environment.

Strategic innovation cannot happen without change, and change does not happen without people. Perhaps one problem is that we focus too much on information technology. Being successful in transforming a KM vision into reality requires that attention be given to the people involved. Above all else, managing change requires good communication of the vision and the path to success, thereby transforming the firm’s culture into one of teamwork and sharing. View More »

This two-way connection allows us to affect everyone we interact with both physically and mentally. The new science of social intelligence should be thought

    Baseball is as American as the red, white and blue that sits on our flag, it is a sport that was created by us, and to this day is one of the sports that we dominate the most in. Growing up in the suburbs right outside Chicago, almost everyone is a Chicago Cubs fan or a Chicago White Sox fan. While that makes sense for them, considering those are the two teams that play close to our town, I chose to be different, I chose to be a New York Yankees fan. Growing up in the minority wasn’t fun, most people look at the Yankees and think of them as the bad guys because they have the money and willingn

    Introduction Effective study skills are necessary for a college student to excel academically. The student must develop these skills in order to retain information learned in the present for their future benefit. Study skills can be a combination of several techniques, including time management, note-taking, self-testing, and test-wiseness, to name a few.
