Harvard Business Review
The Harvard Business Review has one goal: to be the source of the best new ideas for people creating, leading, and transforming business. Since its founding in 1922, HBR has had a proud tradition as the world's preeminent management magazine, publishing cutting-edge, authoritative thinking on the key issues facing executives.
HBR's articles cover a wide range of topics that are relevant to different industries, management functions, and geographic locations. They focus on such areas as leadership, organizational change, negotiation, strategy, operations, marketing, finance, and managing people. While the topics may vary, all HBR articles share certain characteristics. They are written for senior managers by experts whose authority comes from careful analysis, study, and experience. The ideas presented in these articles can be translated into action and have been tested in the real world of business. Proposals for articles demonstrating fresh thinking that advances previous knowledgewhose practical application has been thought through in clear, jargon-free languageare those most likely to meet our readers' needs. When evaluating an idea, our editors often look for two things firstwhat they call the aha!How compelling is the insight?and the so what?How much does this idea benefit managers in practice?
The best way to inquire about HBR's potential interest in a topic is to prepare a proposal. It can be submitted by mail or electronically and should answer the following questions: 1. What is the central message of the article you propose to write (the "aha")? What is important, useful, new, or counterintuitive about your idea? Why do managers need to know about it? 2. How can your idea be applied in business today (the "so what")? 3. For which kinds of companies would the idea NOT work well? For which kinds of companies would it…...

...General Format MLA style specifies guidelines for formatting manuscripts and using the English language in writing. MLA style also provides writers with a system for referencing their sources through parenthetical citation in their essays and Works Cited pages. Writers who properly use MLA also build their credibility by demonstrating accountability to their source material. Most importantly, the use of MLA style can protect writers from accusations of plagiarism, which is the purposeful or accidental uncredited use of source material by other writers. If you are asked to use MLA format, be sure to consult the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (7th edition). Publishing scholars and graduate students should also consult the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing (3rd edition). The MLA Handbook is available in most writing centers and reference libraries; it is also widely available in bookstores, libraries, and at the MLA web site. See the Additional Resources section of this handout for a list of helpful books and sites about using MLA style. Paper Format The preparation of papers and manuscripts in MLA style is covered in chapter four of the MLA Handbook, and chapter four of the MLA Style Manual. Below are some basic guidelines for formatting a paper in MLA style. General Guidelines • Type your paper on a computer and print it out on standard, white 8.5 x 11-inch paper. • Double-space the text of your paper, and use a legible font (e.g.......

...reversed, your opponent would call you, and as we shall see when we discuss the Fundamental Theorem of Poker in the next chapter, this is one of your edges. You should be happy when it occurs. You should even derive satisfaction from a losing session when you know that other players would have lost much more with your cards. Hourly Rate As suggested in the coin-flip example at the opening of this chapter, hourly rate is closely related to expectation, and it is a concept especially important to the professional player. When you go into a poker game, you should try to assess what you think you can earn per hour. For the most part you will have to base your assessment on your judgment and experience, but you can use certain mathematical guidelines. For instance, if you are playing draw lowball and you see three players calling $10 and then drawing two cards, which is a very bad play, you can say to yourself that each time they put in $10 they are losing an average of about $2. They are each doing it eight times an hour, which means those three players figure to lose about $48 an hour. You are one of four other players who are approximately equal, and therefore you four players figure to split up that $48 an hour, which gives you $12 an hour apiece. Your hourly rate in this instance is simply your share of the total hourly loss of the three bad players in the game. Of course, in most games you can't be that precise. Even in the example just given, other variables would affect......

...GUIDELINES FOR PREPARING PROJECTED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Before entering into the nitty-gritty of the precautions to be taken by the professionals, first of all, I would like to throw some lights on the definitions of the basics of the Projected Financial Statements: WHAT IS FINANCIAL FORECASTS AND PROJECTIONS? Financial forecasts and projections are two types of prospective financial statements that attempt to reflect a company’s expected financial position and expected results of operations. FINANCIAL FORECAST A financial forecast reflects, to the best of the company’s knowledge, the expected financial results of a future period. It is based on expected conditions and expected courses of action. It is to be noted that in almost all situations, the party responsible for the prospective financial statements is the management of the company. FINANCIAL PROJECTIONS A financial projection is different than a forecast in that it is based on hypothetical assumptions. A projection reflects the financial position and results of operations based on a “What if” type of scenario. It is to be noted that only a financial forecast is appropriate for general use. Now, I would like to touch upon those areas, which needs to be taken care of and needs some fine-tuning before accepting any assignment of preparing/compiling of projected financial statements. PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN BY THE PROFESSIONALS BEFORE COMPILING PROJECTED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 1. Make sure that...
