Most leadership research around the world is based on US-centric models, be it US companies or American leaders. This is because the US is where most academic developments have taken place in this field over the last couple of

Marketing in a downturn: time to push the panic button?
In a crisis, consumers generally start to rein in their spending and save more – just in case. But how should companies then market their goods and services in a downturn?

In a new working paper by INSEAD professors ‘Paddy’ V. Padmanabhan and Pushan Dutt called ‘When to push the panic button?’, the authors drill down on the impact of economic crises on consumer behaviour in different categories of products and services in developing, as well as developed countries.

6.6 ZigBee

Development of the ZigBee standard is the result of a group of interested parties coming together to form the ZigBee Alliance. When approved it will be an open standard sitting within a subset of the IEEE 802.15.4 low-data wireless standard. At the outset ZigBee was designed specifically for networks set up for the purposes of monitoring and control. Two of the major development aims were that it should be low cost (so that it is cheap to install and maintain), and low power (for long battery

2.2 Photographs as primary sources

As a primary source of historical evidence the still photograph remains largely unexamined and unexplored. Many academic historians remain wedded to the written word and are often mistrustful or dismissive of the still image. Photographs continue to be used merely to prettify or to provide necessary breathing space in dense texts. In fact, the task of finding ‘illustrations’ is often only considered after a book is written. What could indicate more clearly that the photograph has n

Jeremy Siegel: We Can Look for More Gains in the Stock Market
All eyes and ears were on the two-day meeting of the Federal Reserve's Open Market Committee (FOMC) that ended on March 21. While most observers did not expect interest rates to change, the markets were keen to know what language the Fed would use about inflation in its statement on economic and monetary policy. The U.S. economy has seen mixed signals lately, and concerns about recession have been replaced by worries about "stagflation" -- or stagnation combined with inflation. Is stagflation re

Take Two Advil and ... What Ills Can the Pfizer-Wyeth Merger Cure?
When the giant pharmaceutical company Pfizer announced on January 26 that it was acquiring Wyeth for $68 billion, analysts started questioning what benefits the deal would bring and for whom. Pfizer executives suggest the acquisition makes strategic sense by expanding the company into a range of new areas, and by helping make up for an expected loss of more than $12 billion in annual revenues once its Lipitor patent expires in 2011. But Wyeth also brings some liabilities -- notably, continuing l
