Firm Foundations:Knowing What You Believe Dr. Stuart Pattico
When 27-year-old Bette Robinson quits her Manhattan banking job, she knows she won´t miss the 80-hour workweeks, her claustrophobic cubicle or her revolting boss´s Quotes of the Day. Then Bette meets Kelly, head of Manhattan´s hottest PR and events planning firm, and suddenly she has a brand-new job where the primary requirement is to see and be seen. The work at Kelly & Company takes Bette inside the VIP rooms of the city´s most exclusive nightclubs, to parties crowded with celebrities and socialites. Soon she´s dating an infamous playboy who´s great for her career but bad for her sanity - and scaring off the one decent guy she meets. As her coworkers repeatedly point out, how can you complain about a job that pays you to party? Bette has to agree - until she begins appearing in a vicious new gossip column. That´s when Bette´s life on paper takes on a whole new meaning - and she learns the line between her personal and professional lives is...invisible. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stina Nielsen.

On paper, Bette Robinson´s life is good. At 26, she´s got a great deal on an apartment in Manhattan, and she´s on target to become an associate at the prestigious investment bank where she works with her best friend. Her 80-hour workweeks might keep her from socializing or dating outside her office walls, but she´s paying her dues on the well-trod path to wealth and happiness. So when Bette quits her job like the impulsive girl she´s never been, she not only shocks her friends and family, she has no idea what to do next. For months, Bette gets out and about by walking her four-pound dog around her decidedly unglamorous Murray Hill neighborhood. Then she meets Kelly, head of Manhattan´s hottest PR and events planning firm, and suddenly Bette has a brand-new job where the primary requirement is to see and be seen. The work at Kelly & Company takes Bette inside the VIP rooms of the city´s most exclusive nightclubs, to parties crowded with celebrities and socialites. Bette learns not to blink at the famous faces, the black Amex cards, the magnums of Cristal, or the ruthless paparazzi. Soon she´s dating an infamous playboy who´s great for her career but bad for her sanity, and scaring off the one decent guy she meets. Still, as her coworkers repeatedly point out, how can you complain about a job that pays you to party? Bette has to agree, until she begins appearing in a vicious new gossip column. That´s when Bette´s life on paper takes on a whole new meaning, and she learns the line between her personal and professional lives is invisible. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eliza Dushku.

Masters Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: Pass with highest distinction, , course: International Business - International Business and Value Creation, language: English, abstract: The concept of Smiling Curve coined by Stan Shih, founder of Acer, shows the appropriable value added in different phases of an industry. Typically the part of a value chain that generates higher value proposition are controlled by firms from developed economies; while firms from developing world are stuck at the manufacturing section with low value added. However, the unprecedented growth of ICT hardware market over the years has opened up possibilities for those latecomers to catch up. Although a handful firms have succeeded, little is known about how they managed to move up along the value chain. Trying to solve this mystery, a conceptual model is proposed based on case studies of ICT firms from an emerging economy, Taiwan. Knowing the difficulties for firms to survive head-to-head competitions that come along with the moving up activities, the model suggests that firms should look for new market opportunities by the means of functional upgrading and innovation, and eventually evolve into creating a new value chain with high end topped by themselves.
