BCG-K@W Procurement Report: Part 8: Peformance-based Logistics
These days, when the U.S. Department of Defense buys a fighter jet from Lockheed Martin, it doesn't simply pay Lockheed for the physical product. Instead, the government has a "performance-based contract" with the defense supplier, according to Serguei Netessine, professor of operations and information management at Wharton. This contract says, in effect, that the government's reimbursement to Lockheed hinges on the jets' performance -- that is, how often the planes are able to fly. In this inte
Using Math Vocabulary to Describe
Math Lingo is an interactive tic-tac-toe game. Students read a question and find the picture that shows the correct answer. Students practice positional vocabulary, names of shapes, same and different. Correct answers receive a crowd cheer. Clip art shows young children, but the content of the game is good for ELL and Special Education students.

Robert Taylor: Network Visionary
[Recorded May 13, 2010] Bob Taylor planned to be a Methodist minister like his father. Instead, he became an evangelist for an idea that changed the world: easy-to-use computers that talk to each other. "I was never interested in the computer as a mathematical device, but as a communication device," Taylor said. Taylor's interests -- and his genius for getting them funded -- helped develop computer networking, the personal computer, and many of the other technologies that drove the global comput

21M.361 Composing with Computers I (Electronic Music Composition) (MIT)
This class explores sound and what can be done with it. Sources are recorded from students' surroundings - sampled and electronically generated (both analog and digital). Assignments include composing with the sampled sounds, feedback, and noise, using digital signal processing (DSP), convolution, algorithms, and simple mixing. The class focuses on sonic and compositional aspects rather than technology, math, or acoustics, though these are examined in varying detail. Students complete weekly com

Achieving Health for All in the 21st Century
Remarkable advances in global health have been achieved over the past three decades. Nevertheless, enormous gaps in health persist worldwide. Dr. Stephen Gloyd will provide evidence and share personal stories that illustrate both the positive impact of the advances—and the pervasive forces that continue to produce growing inequality between rich and poor. He will show that achieving health for all requires addressing rights, delivering justice and ensuring equity. Stephen Gloyd, MD, MPH, Prof
How Arab Countries Are Coping with Globalization
At the beginning of 2008, crude prices are at record highs, creating immense wealth for oil-exporting nations in the Middle East. Yet the Arab economies also face what economists call "a demographic bulge of a fast-growing labor force" -- and the challenge of creating enough jobs for the population. This is happening at a time when the arrival of China and India is raising the competitive stakes for other emerging economies that want to make their mark on the global economic stage. How are the A

M As: Not necessarily the best way to grow your company
There are several good ways to grow a company, but only about a third of firms actively use all the methods available to them, and this narrow focus widens the corporate gap between success and failure significantly.
That’s according to a 10-year global study of 162 telecom companies conducted by Laurence Capron, INSEAD strategy professor, and Will Mitchell, a professor at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
