7 Business Lessons from Gourmet Cupcakes

7 Business Lessons from Gourmet Cupcakes

The Cupcake business became a media darling story. Born from placement on several TV series including 2 Broke Girls raising money to start a cupcake business and several TV series featuring cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery, it was helped along by cooking shows that were essentially cupcake making competitions (Cupcake Wars).

8 Ways To Cure Dysfunctional Meetings

8 Ways To Cure Dysfunctional Meetings

The idea of stand-up meetings as a way to improve meetings isn’t new; a colleague was advocating them over 15 years ago.

Are Your Decisions Un-informed ? It’s time to make a change

Are Your Decisions Un-informed ? It’s time to make a change

For some reason. I’ve been seeing a lot of articles recently about using information for making decisions. The first article titled “Releasing stats cuts death in hospitals’ in the Toronto Star  is about the death rates in hospitals going down because the rates are published publicly. The article says that because hospitals are now compared […]

In-House or Outsource? The Right Answer

In-House or Outsource? The Right Answer

Trash Your Competition Without Naming Names – By Ghosting Them

Trash Your Competition Without Naming Names – By Ghosting Them

Ghosting is a technique you can use to trash your competition without naming names in your RFQ or RFP proposals. You write a proposal to demonstrate that you’re better than your competitor, but it’s not appropriate to say negative things about your competition or their services. I use the term Ghosting for the technique of […]

7 Strategies To Improve Creativity Using the Analog Approach

7 Strategies To Improve Creativity Using the Analog Approach

I spend way too much time in front of the computer, but sometimes when I start planning for an initiative, workshop or presentation, I step away from the computer and switch to a pad of paper and a pen to improve creativity. That’s right, a pen instead of a pencil and eraser, which means that […]
