Von der Kunst, ein Unternehmen erfolgreich zu gründen
Author: Guy Kawasaki
The Art oft the Start Dieser äußerst praktische Ratgeber behandelt alle wichtigen Punkte, die man bei der Gründung einer Organisation, ob Unternehmen oder Non-Profit-Initiative, bedenken muss. Guy Kawasaki weiß dabei aus eigenen Erfahrungen, dass die Gründung weniger eine Wissenschaft als vielmehr eine Kunst ist. In elf Kapiteln stellt er dar, wie man die Kunst der Gründung erlernt mit dem Ziel, die Dinge von vornherein „richtig anzupacken“. Guy Kawasaki schreibt leichtgängig und humorvoll. FAQs, zahlreiche Übungen und Checklisten werden effektvoll eingesetzt und geben Orientierung bei der Umsetzung. Gängige Überzeugungen widerlegt er mit persönlichen Erfahrungen und verdichtet sie zu ganz konkreten Empfehlungen. Jedes Kapitel beginnt mit einer Quintessenz. Hilfreiche „Minikapitel“ gehen auf viele „nebensächliche“ Dinge ein wie „Die Kunst, gute PowerPoint-Präsentation zu erstellen“, „Die Kunst des Netzwerkens“ oder „Die Kunst, ein guter Redner zu sein“.
Lange bevor es iPad oder Kindle gab, hatte Microsoft bereits ein Tablet und einen E-Reader entwickelt. Nur: Es hatte die Produkte nie genutzt und war gegen neue Innovatoren wie Apple, Google und Amazon ins Hintertreffen geraten. Um diesen Rückstand wieder aufzuholen, musste Microsoft nicht nur eine Strategie entwickeln, wie es künftig mit neuen Technologien wie künstlicher Intelligenz, Robotern und Co umgehen wollte – der einstige Vorreiter in Sachen Innovation musste seine Kultur vollkommen erneuern und seine Seele wiederfinden. Dies ist die Inside-Story dieser Transformation.
This book outlines and analyses the legislative activity of the Union in an area which is currently experiencing exponential growth in terms of both commercial activity and legal significance. The scope of the book is current, pending and proposed Internet-related law on contracts, copyright, data protection, commercial communications, financial services, electronic cash and electronic signatures. John Dickie argues that the Union is in the process of displacing Member State autonomy in the regulation of the Internet. Within that frame, it is argued that there is a lack of focus on the individual in the electronic marketplace and a lack of co-ordination between relevant legislative instruments. This book will be of interest to all those engaged with Union and Internet law, including lawyers, policy-makers and academics.
With the massive explosion of e-commerce, and especially the use of the Internet as a transnational and instant medium for business transactions, has come a whole range of new laws and regulations - and, inevitably, a minefield of accompanying uncertainties and potential pitfalls. So what exactly are the legal issues companies need to address, and what are their implications in real terms for the business world? Find the answers in this groundbreaking study undertaken for the European Commission within the framework of the ECLIP project. With a brief to provide practical help for businesses and e-commerce initiatives, this series of cutting-edge reviews examines and evaluates the special rules designed to regulate the Internet - both at a European and at national level in the Member States. It also explains the relevant technological developments and evaluates them against the legal background. This is an essential guide for legal and corporate practitioners alike, as well as software developers and the consultancy community internationally. A publication of the ECLIP network

Electronic commerce is here to stay. No matter how big the dot-com crisis was or how far the e-entrepreneurs' shares fell in the market, the fact remains that there is still confidence in electronic trading. At least it would appear that investors are confident in e-companies again. However, not only trust of venture capitalists is of importance -- consumers also have to have faith in on-line business. After all, without consumers there is no e-business. Interacting lawyers, technicians and economists are needed to create a trustworthy electronic commerce environment. To achieve this environment, thorough and inter-disciplinary research is required and that is exactly what this book is about. Researchers of the project Enabling Electronic Commerce from the Dutch universities of Tilburg and Eindhoven have chosen a number of e-topics to elaborate on trust from their point of view. This volume makes clear that the various disciplines can and will play a role in developing conditions for trust and thus contribute to a successful electronic market.
»Ich sah es in den Nachrichten. Nacht. Gebüsch. Wasser, verschwommene Lichter, ein Hubschrauber. Männer mit Warnwesten und Schutzhelmen. Hier war etwas Entsetzliches passiert..« Robert Farquharson bekommt sein Leben einfach nicht auf die Reihe. Seit einiger Zeit lebt er getrennt von seiner Familie. Am Abend des Vatertags im Jahr 2005 fährt er die drei Söhne zurück zuseiner Exfrau Cindy, als sein Wagen von der Straße abkommt und in einen See stürzt. Nur er kann sich aus dem Auto befreien ... Tragischer Unfall oder Racheakt – diese Frage wird die australische Justiz und Öffentlichkeit in den folgenden Jahren beschäftigen – und sie wird für Helen Garner geradezu zur Obsession. Sie verfolgt den Prozess durch alle Instanzen und erzählt die Geschichte eines Mannes und seines kaputten Leben und das unerhörte und unvorhersehbare Gerichts-Drama auf der Suche nach Gerechtigkeit.
