Big mistake that puts them at a distinct disadvantage. Small and medium activities can extract more benefits from the Balanced Scorecard to be much more feasible to implement and monitor, precisely because the smaller size gives the possibility to control everything in more detail and carry out their strategy more effective. Our strategy as SMEs or automobiles should result in some objectives, some actions, resources and so dedicated.

However, to have a website and do not need to know how to program, because there are many simple options to build it. Before knowing the different options, we must first identify what your needs, for which we suggest you make a small list of the amount of information you would like to include, how often would you need to update the information and if necessary take your page more than just information and images (for example, having the possibility of sale of transactions). Once you have your website developed, it is necessary to have a space to store pages that form. The hosting of the pages (also called hosting) is the service through pages which are stored on a server so that they can be consulted.

Business Negotiations

If we talk about business, both as a company, a company, a sole proprietorship, at some point we will start negotiations. And although in truth in our daily dealings with people are also often negotiate something or other, one way or another, I will refer here only to trading on the business side which is what interests us. But that is the negotiation? As a first step I must say it is a process involving two or more parties are seeking a solution, to reach an agreement or resolving differences, whether monetary or personal, seeking mutual benefit, or results that leave under the parties involved. Skilled negotiators handle two forms of negotiation, one of those ways is to (win – lose) and the other way is to (win – win), in the first, the negotiator tries to get the best possible advantage for his party with the logical consequence of the relationship, business or personal, is very poor because the other part is that because of losing. While the second option, both parties gain, in some way, one benefit of this way are both satisfied without the need to damage the relationship.

Addressing a negotiation requires preparation, have well defined the “far” or that is the maximum and minimum set by the top of our assignment, and once to know, do not deviate from that perspective in the course of negotiation . In short, be very sure that is what is going to negotiate and how far we can go. Professional negotiators say that a prolonged negotiation is very stressful, so it is recommended to have all points, variants or fully evaluated possibilities to resolve the matter as quickly as possible, and is no stranger to keep in mind that old saying : a bad deal is better than a good lawsuit. It is not good present for a negotiation where time plays against us, because all you need to know the other hand, is just that, and from there as it takes the negotiations have less chance to resist, our emergency conditions us and as time goes on but it is what we give. Presented a negotiation knowing exactly when we give and when not, it would be ideal, but not always possible to maintain this position because it depends on what you thought about the other party. You have to know that there are two things that it is advisable to always be prepared 1) Be prepared to leave, sometimes off the negotiating table is to get better terms next time. 2) Be prepared to say NO.

In order to develop fully the subject of negotiation where many items need to deploy all its components such as type of negotiation, standards, styles, advantages and disadvantages, timing, methods of approach, dialogue, gains and losses , limitations, availability, etc. To all you learn in life and also negotiate, the only drawback is that, generally, to learn to handle with ease and obtain satisfactory results, you must have gone through some negotiations with no prior experience, so you probably will have played to lose. Finally: the art of negotiation is very complex and knowledge play in it with skill, coolness and resolution is just that, an art. Although there are some who know what they do and are very confident about negotiating. Never forget that the most powerful tool in negotiation is information, and fundamental, because it is not always negotiable “must be” negotiated.

ECB Cuts Key Interest Rate

At its meeting today, the ECB has lowered a key interest rate for the eurozone to 1.00 percent. The ECB has lowered the interest rate for the eurozone to historically low 1.00 percent at their meeting today. Others who may share this opinion include Bill Phelan. This level will be held over a period of time now likely to. The today’s move was anticipated by most experts and is the last step in a whole series of interest rate cuts, which interested readers can refer to the statistics and graphs on statistics/leitzinsen.html. The ECB supports the commercial banks since the financial crisis with all their strength. You can pawn there since almost all securities and raise as fresh money, which is required for a loan.

This step was necessary because the banks themselves had borrowed no more money for fear of the other Bank could be due to depreciation and impairment no longer able to repay their debts. The recent interest rate cut will be immediately on the interest numerous day – and fixed-term deposit products have effect and as the recent interest rate cuts only with a time lag and incomplete to a reduction of the level of interest rates on the credit market, what actually is one of the main concerns of the ECB. Lower interest rates mean cheaper money for business and consumers and thus an increased borrowing, which in turn stimulates the economy. It remains to be seen how the lower key interest rates this time arrive at the borrowers. Current contracts remain unaffected within the agreed interest rate lock-in periods anyway, but new business banks could reinforce the demand through interest rate cuts.
