The chemistry of enthusiasm
“In our view, too many companies try to raise engagement by launching disconnected initiatives like wellness programs. Such initiatives might improve employee morale slightly and serve other purposes, but they’re detached from customers’ priorities. They lack the specific mechanisms that lift employee engagement the most over a long period and link directly to customer advocacy.”

Cisco Buys Starent Networks for $2.9 Billion
Matthew Robison, a communications analyst with Wedbush Morgan Securities, said Starent had made a name for itself by creating a single piece of networking hardware that could move data while also performing more complex management functions like handling user tracking and billing processes. “It’s almost like a router and a computer server in the same box,” he said. Such technology has become desirable among the large telecommunications suppliers, which have either made similar acquisitions or tried to build their own hybrid systems. “Cisco needed to do this to have a good road map out to the next generation of products,” Mr. Robison said.

Google Code Blog: Let's make the web faster
As I told Pail Krill, stuff like this helps Google because: "In the current state of things, business is easiest for Google if the web stays in HTML/Ajax world: indeed, if the web stays the most popular way to interface with the Internet. Because, of course, they can then sell their web ads. They don't seem to do too well in other ad markets, even things like video, with YouTube that are rumored/theorized to loose money. So, making sure web applications are always *the best* way to deliver applications (rather than desktop, RIAs, or something "non-web native") keeps Googles market massive. And without that massive market, Google can't get the huge take in web advertising that currently funds everything, including its mind-bogglingly high stock price."

Capacity Management using simple or advanced scheduling tools
"The 'Theory of Constraints' (TOC) penned by Goldratt & Fox in their book 'The Goal' argued that the capacity of the supply chain system was governed by the capacity of its weakest link (the bottleneck) and that overproduction in other areas would simply produce unwanted inventory. Therefore high level control needs to be exercised to avoid local optimisation."

Start-up takes on application management in virtual environments
"According to the start-up, FactFinder helps companies struggling to optimize application performance in a less static environment, such as those featuring both physical and virtual servers." Now's a great time to have any type of virtualization management technology that works - the Big 4 & Co. will be acquiring that kind of stuff right and left.
