Usability
Poor usability leads to irritation and fatigue and it has an adverse impact on the usage experience. In an on-line shopping web site, it can lead to loss of revenues. Poor usability in business applications leads to increased help desk costs. On the other hand, better usability makes our usage experience more fun and can increase productivity. A highly usable on-line shopping web site tempts repeat visits, builds customer loyalty, and increases its revenue-earning potential.

EXAMPLE OF ANALYTICAL RESEARCH: use, as the Expedia example illustrates. Steps to Improving Usability Let us see what steps could be taken to improve usability in the course of a software development or implementation project. One, software engineers could build repositories of usability best practices from previous projects and earlier product versions. As we have seen from our various examples, basic elements like wizards, rightly-placed hyperlinks, shopping carts, and navigation schemes can lead to significant improvements in

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.

EXAMPLE OF ANALYTICAL RESEARCH: undertaking. Using a specific example helps to understand the issues and the approach. The concepts and approach are relevant to any project or change initiative.

We use the preliminary case for

Intel Server Trends
The Intel-based server market is one of the most hotly contested segments in the industry. What are the key trends in this market, and what will they mean to users, vendors, and the products themselves?

EXAMPLE OF ANALYTICAL RESEARCH: the long term. An example is Compaq s reduction of ProLiant server models from 12 to nine. This reduction is primarily due to Compaq having too many models covering the same market space . However, it is unlikely Compaq would feel as great a need to cull models if the competition (i.e., Dell) weren t breathing down its neck. 2) Server Consolidation General In general terms, server consolidation translates into replace a large bunch of smaller servers with a smaller bunch of large servers .

Cash Management 101
Cash management is an essential business process all organizations must perform to survive. Though cash management uses automation for much of the “grunt” work, it is human intelligence in the financial decision making that does the rest.

EXAMPLE OF ANALYTICAL RESEARCH: business too. Following are examples of poor decisions and practices: Transferring too much of the business s liquid assets into the acquisition of fixed assets, such as machinery or real estate. Monthly commit¬ments must be properly managed by obtaining long-term financing for such large capital investments. Failing to budget properly. To avoid this problem, construct a spreadsheet with columns that represent weeks or months, and with rows that represent inflows or outflows. Lay out, by month, the

The big buzz this year, no surprise, was about RFID.
