AITEC - Association Internationale de Techniciens, Experts et Chercheurs Jerusalem Artichokes URL Creating Impact in B2B Relationships If you asked business-to-business (B2B) companies what they do, most would tell you that they provide products and services to other companies -- and that doing this at the lowest possible price is the key to success. This is true. Quality service and products at a reasonable price is a basic component of operating a B2B company. But B2B organizations that see this as their only function are gravely misguided -- and easily replaced. B2B companies that narrowly focus on product and price are doing the bare minimum required to survive. Business-to-business companies that are narrowly focused on product and price are doing the bare minimum required to survive.

The Strike That Didn’t Change New York (Photo by Katrina Ohstrom)I never liked riding the bus as a kid. With its limited possibilities for adult supervision, the school bus was the venue of choice for kicking someone’s ass or exploring the more psychological expressions of adolescent torment. One day a boy my age looked at me defiantly across the aisle and set his jeans on fire. The first time I heard the word “cunt” yelled with real conviction? On a school bus. But had it not come, I would have been stranded without a ride. The Daily News accused drivers of “leaving kids … and forcing their angry parents to drag them to school in taxis or the subway.” The next day, the strike was off — another in a long line of Bloomberg’s victories against organized labor. The walkout left nine out of ten bus routes inoperational, effectively shutting down a critical service overnight. But ultimately it was the bus drivers, not the politicians, who were seen as selfish. It’s inevitable. It’s the wrong question.

CrisisCommons | connecting people, tools and resources to support crisis response Amazing Science About | DFER Watch About Democrats for Education Reform is a political action committee supported largely by hedge fund managers favoring charter schools, merit-pay tied to test scores, high-stakes testing, school choice (including vouchers and tuition tax credits in some cases), mayoral control, and alternative teacher preparation programs. As Pedro Noguera noted in a recent Nation article: Market-based reforms like performance pay for teachers, the excessive emphasis on charter schools as alternatives to traditional public schools and the distribution of federal funds—once treated as entitlements to compensate for poverty—through competitive grants all represent a disturbing continuity with the policies of the past. The Obama administration gets some credit for not ignoring education despite being preoccupied with several formidable challenges.
