How RFID Technology Can Enhance Your Asset Management Program


Even though the technology has been around in some form since World War II, chances are that you think of Wal-Mart’s supply chain initiative when you hear the words “radio frequency identification,” or “RFID.” Wal-Mart is already seeing a return on their 2005 investment.

The Use of Ceiling-Ducted Air Containment in Data Centers


Ducting hot IT-equipment exhaust to a drop ceiling can be an effective air management strategy, improving the reliability and energy efficiency of a data center. Typical approaches include ducting either individual racks or entire hot aisles and may be passive (ducting only) or active (include fans). This paper examines available ducting options and explains how such systems should be deployed and operated. Practical cooling limits are established and best-practice recommendations are provided.

Mobilizing Change


It's not news that people are resistant to change. Inertia, one of the rules of the universe, applies to people as well as to objects. Many organizations, seeking to improve performance, have come unstuck by under-estimating the amount of resistance that will be offered by people. This article presents a method of mobilizing change that takes the resistance to change into account.

Consciousness and Competency I often think of a model relating to learning that I saw years ago when I think about change. We start as unconsciously incompetent —we don''t know what we don''t know, and Read More
