A Study about National Export Strategy – Gender Dimension
The issues of gender and women’s empowerment are receiving increasing attention internationally. Globally, gender equality is increasingly recognized as a key economic growth and competitiveness factor. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), in particular MDG 3 (reduce gender disparity in education, in access to and control of productive resources) provide a solid pillar on which to rally calls for gender empowerment.
Although there is limited disaggregated data by gender in economic activity and business operations in Uganda, it is generally acknowledged that women’s share in the ownership and control of productive resources is far less than men’s. Engendering of the NES, therefore, is a step in the direction of making exports work for the good of all; men and women alike. Some work needs to be done to put this goal into context relevant to gender issues and concerns of national plans such as the NES and to mobilize relevant stakeholders to ensure that the role of exports in development covers all sectors of the society.

Mobile Commerce: Mobile commerce means that people use mobile technologies to deal with business processes in their daily work (Heijden & Valiente, 2002). Liu (2000) indentified that any activity using word or voice or using public or private internet to communicate, exchange data or make transactions through mobile devices is considered as mobile commerce. Shih and Shim (2002) divided mobile commerce into two purposes: for consumer and for business. The consumer purpose mobile commerce means to utilize wireless devices such as PDAs and cell phones to provide personal information or activities.

Case Study about Neo-Gramscian Approach to Corporate Political Strategy: Conﬂict and Accommodation in the Climate Change Negotiations
Abstract: A neo-Gramscian theoretical framework for corporate political strategy is developed drawing from Gramsci’s analysis of the relations among capital, social forces, and the state, and from more contemporary theories. Gramsci’s political theory recognizes the centrality of organizations and strategy, directs attention to the organizational, economic, and ideological pillars of power, while illuminating the processes of coalition building, conﬂict, and accommodation that drive social change. This approach addresses the structure-agency relationship and endogenous dynamics in a way that could enrich institutional theory.
Introduction: Despite the resurgence of concerns about the dominance of corporate inﬂuence and the triumph of neoliberalism, a number of important developments contradict the image of corporations as all-powerful juggernauts: efforts to create a Multilateral Agreement on Investment have stalled Monsanto’s efforts to commercialize genetically modiﬁed food and seeds have faltered. More broadly, the wave of environmental activism in the USA and Europe that began in 1960s and 1970s has forced companies to develop techniques of environmental management that ameliorate the more egregious environmental impacts of their business operations, and o reconstruct themselves as responsible stewards of the environment.
Challenges: The portal is a core component of the Bank’s wholesale banking strategy. Customer adoption and satisfaction is paramount. Any inability on the part of commercial customers to access online business services or successfully complete critical banking processes, like time-sensitive wire transfers, would not only complicate business operations for customers, but would exact a significant business impact to the Bank.
And, although the Bank already had an arsenal of tools to help them manage the portal, they were missing a solution that would allow them to better manage their high-value, online customer relationships. The Bank required a solution that would allow them to see exactly how the site worked for real customers a solution that ould enable the Bank to proactively resolve site obstacles and continually deliver the best possible experience.
Introduction: Founded in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, in 1902 as a shipbuilding and ship-repair company, the Manitowoc Company, Inc., has grown and diversified into the multi-industry capital goods manufacturer it is today. With more than 100 manufacturing and services facilities in 27 countries, 12,000 employees, and $4.5 billion in annual sales (2008), Manitowoc has global reach. It is recognized as one of the world’s largest providers of lifting equipment for the global construction industry, including lattice-boom cranes, tower cranes, mobile telescopic cranes, and boom trucks.
Maintaining the global IT infrastructure necessary for Manitowoc’s business operations is vital to the company’s continued success. A central part of those efforts is ensuring that its hundreds of servers and thousands of workstations are maintained within its internal IT security policy, that misconfigurations are spotted and fixed, and that outdated patch levels are made current. This, most security experts agree, will ensure that systems not only run more smoothly, but also make them resilient to attack and infiltration.Click here to read more on Manitowoc Company, Inc

Report Abstract: The performance of supply chain tracking systems is the cornerstone for the effectiveness of many business operations. But often the managers might ask “How well is my tracking system performing?” or “How much money is the tracking system saving us per year?”. This report provides a method to answer these questions through a stepby-step approach. We demonstrate the value of the method through a case study undertaken in Embraer S.A. The results show how the value of a tracking system and its overall performance can be assessed. The analysis of the results provides an insight into the determinants of the value of a racking system.
Introduction: This report proposes a tracking system audit method which can be used to measure the performance of a tracking system and the value it has for a company. The previous reports of the Aerospace-ID Programme white paper series on the Track and Trace theme have revealed the potential of automatic identification (auto-id) technologies for enhancing track and trace effectiveness and proposed a way to assess the performance of a track and trace system in terms of the quality of information that it delivers. The method proposed in this report measures the performance of a tracking system in monetary terms. We demonstrate the use of the method with a case study at Embraer S.A. Click here to read more…
