8) Managing the Digital Enterprise | Business Models: Business models are perhaps the most discussed and least understood aspect of the web. There is so much talk about how the web changes traditional business models. But there is little clear-cut evidence of exactly what this means.

In the most basic sense, a business model is the method of doing business by which a company can sustain itself -- that is, generate revenue. The business model spells-out how a company makes money by specifying where it is positioned in the value chain.

11) Multitasking is counterproductive and thrashing: CNN.com Study: Multitasking is counterproductive (http://www.cnn.com/2001/CAREER/trends/08/05/multitasking.study/index. html)

Finally, a study to back up what I always told my managers at CEISS --
I cannot handle working on 6 different projects at one time and do work that meets my quality expectations under strict deadlines.

I work best when I'm working on 1 or 2 tasks/projects.

Actually, Hal Jorch (http://www.google.com/search? hl=en&safe=off&q=hal+), the first manager I had at CEISS, really understood this. (He didn't stay at CEISS very long -- hint hint).

When I told him I was being asked to do too many things at once he taught me about thrashing (http://www.google.com/search? q=cache:jWZKEJgzuzk:www.whatis.com/definition/0,289893,sid9_gci214055, 00.html+), which is what happens when a multitasking operating system starts spending more time switching between tasks than performing the tasks themselves. He said it applied to people every bit as much as computers.

13) Culture Shock: Traditional Cultural Patterns Surprise Product Developers : In yesterday’s one-size-fits-all world, a company could often migrate something that was a hit in the U.S. or Europe by tweaking its language and advertising and funneling a lot of money into local marketing efforts. Germany’s Mercedes-Benz, for example, traded on its reputation for building highly engineered automobiles to drive into markets the world over. Japan’s Sony Corp. found that its knack for building compact, economical, and reliable electronics, such as the Walkman, struck a chord around the globe. Coca-Cola Co. and Philip Morris’s Marlboro cigarettes traded on their "American-ness" to create large foreign followings.

15) At Big Tech Firms, Elite Cadre Drives Innovation - BizReport.com: ...Many are bestowed with titles such as "fellow" or "distinguished engineer." They tend to parachute in on a project, make suggestions and criticisms, then move on to the next project. Even high-level managers are said to shudder at their arrival at meetings. Not uncommonly, a single look, a single word from any one of them can mean a doubling of funding — or the death of the project. ...

18) ArsDigita Systems Journal: Managing Software Engineers: ...Insane hours by themselvs don't guarantee success of course. You need to be solving a problem that someone cares about. You need to have engineers who evaluate themselves by how well their work fits customer needs (the day that your engineers pat themselves on the back for how good their code looks internally is the day that your company dies; you need engineers who pat themselves on the back when a customer is happy with the product and writes another check)...

22) On Trial : Are Tech Companies Destroying Morale? : On "trial": Adobe, Cisco Systems, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Lucent Technologies, and Sun Microsystems. The charges: Ruining internal morale with pay cuts, early retirement schemes, forced vacations and corporate doublespeak; reducing strategic flexibility by hanging on to too many workers or firing the best. The prosecution: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, this is a case about pain. Scared of the financial, emotional, and legal pain of firing workers now and having to hire and train more of them when the economy picks up again, technology firms are doing whatever it takes to keep people on the payroll. For more on this case, check out the article...

29) Intermittent Aberrations: Can Mature Companies Innovate?: A whole literature has grown up around the apparently intractable hostility between innovation and bureaucracy, between those who create and those who control. Smart and speedy start-ups blindside mature companies with their inventiveness then grow up into mature companies and are outsmarted in their turn. The only way for innovation to survive in mature companies is to isolate the creators from the managers in protected enclaves. If this is true, it means that it is virtually impossible for sustained innovation to be built into the everyday operation of mature companies; it can only ever be an intermittent aberration.
