Imagine a person from another planet turning up at a funeral here on Earth. Without having to be told, he would know that a funeral is not an appropriate place to tell jokes. This, Professor Michael Tushman tells his class at Harvard Business School, is the meaning of culture. But culture does more than inform every individual in an organization what attitudes and behaviors are expected of them.

Warren Buffett On Housing Market: I Was 'Dead Wrong' OMAHA, Neb. — Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said Saturday that he was "dead wrong" with a prediction that the U.S. housing market would begin to recover by now, but he remains optimistic about the nation's economy.

But he did not predict when that will happen. Investors eagerly await the letter from Buffett, 81, the so-called Oracle of Omaha, who built a roughly $44 billion fortune by following a steadfast, no-nonsense investing strategy. Buffett said housing "remains in a depression of its own," but he predicted, in typical plainspoken style, that the housing market will come back because some human factors can't be denied forever. "People may postpone hitching up during uncertain times, but eventually hormones take over," he wrote. Warren Buffett On Housing Market: I Was 'Dead Wrong'

The advertising agencies had to reinvent themselves as the new technology became widespread and by 1979 over 300 million televisions were occupying the corners of peoples living rooms. 50 years ago the choices of media were simple compared to today with essentially only a few media types.

12 Big Ideas for the Financial Services Industry in 2012 - American Banker Magazine Article Banks know health care is a big opportunity. They are spending more than $100 million a year acquiring and building technology to process claims and other transactions for providers of health services, according to the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMMS). But there's a lot more that banks could be doing, especially as more provisions of Obamacare—officially called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010—go into effect over the next two years. Besides serving as the payments vehicle for doctors, hospitals and health care plan administrators, banks could become central to a kind of "health-wealth" portal that many believe will be a major source of the $35 billion in health care savings that the White House projects the act will provide by 2013.
