This book covers the essentials of business research for managers. It includes coverage of the increasing role of knowledge management as well as how to conduct information-gathering activities more effectively in a rapidly changing business environment. Because managers increasingly must make decisions based on almost unlimited information in data warehouses, this text provides substantially more coverage of data analysis than other texts. The authors recognize that most managers will not be data analysts. The straightforward, hands-on approach will make the book particularly successful in teaching advanced undergraduates and MBA students, both traditional and executive.

The surname should be entered first under PARCEL POST BUSINESS
Author: Claude Clifford Hawbaker
"Housewives appreciate receiving farm produce which they know to be fresh. Many farmers withing 150 miles of cities have regular supplies of high-grade produce, the quality of which they can guarantee. The parcel post offers a means of direct dealing between producer and consumer, with profit to both. Parcel-post shipments are increasing in number, though probably they alway will affect only a small percentage of the farm produce that goes to market. Dealing by parcel post succeeds if the farmer is careful to keep up the quality of his produce, packs it safely and attractively, and meets his engagements promptly -- always supposing that the consumer also observes business methods in the transaction. This bulletin gives detailed suggestions regarding means of obtaining customers and methods of carrying on business, with samples of suitable letterheads, bills, order blanks,a nd other business forms." -- p.

Business Process Management (BPM) has become one of the most widely used approaches for the design of modern organizational and information systems. The conscious treatment of business processes as significant corporate assets has facilitated substantial improvements in organizational performance but is also used to ensure the conformance of corporate activities. This Handbook presents in two volumes the contemporary body of knowledge as articulated by the world' s leading BPM thought leaders. This first volume focuses on arriving at a sound definition of Business Process Management approaches and examines BPM methods and process-aware information systems. As such, it provides guidance for the integration of BPM into corporate methodologies and information systems. Each chapter has been contributed by leading international experts. Selected case studies complement these views and lead to a summary of BPM expertise that is unique in its coverage of the most critical success factors of BPM.
The book also serves as an authoritative reference and self-study guice for financial and business professionals, as well as for readers looking to reinforce their analytical skills.

An accessible introduction to the essential quantitative methods for making valuable business decisions Quantitative methods-research techniques used to analyze quantitative data-enable professionals to organize and understand numbers and, in turn, to make good decisions. Quantitative Methods: An Introduction for Business Management presents the application of quantitative mathematical modeling to decision making in a business management context and emphasizes not only the role of data in drawing conclusions, but also the pitfalls of undiscerning reliance of software packages that implement standard statistical procedures. With hands-on applications and explanations that are accessible to readers at various levels, the book successfully outlines the necessary tools to make smart and successful business decisions. Progressing from beginner to more advanced material at an easy-to-follow pace, the author utilizes motivating examples throughout to aid readers interested in decision making and also provides critical remarks, intuitive traps, and counterexamples when appropriate. The book begins with a discussion of motivations and foundations related to the topic, with introductory presentations of concepts from calculus to linear algebra. Next, the core ideas of quantitative methods are presented in chapters that explore introductory topics in probability, descriptive and inferential statistics, linear regression, and a discussion of time series that includes both classical topics and more challenging models. The author also discusses linear programming models and decision making under risk as well as less standard topics in the field such as game theory and Bayesian statistics. Finally, the book concludes with a focus on selected tools from multivariate statistics, including advanced regression models and data reduction methods such as principal component analysis, factor analysis, and cluster analysis. The book promotes the importance of an analytical approach, particularly when dealing with a complex system where multiple individuals are involved and have conflicting incentives. A related website features Microsoft Excel® workbooks and MATLAB® scripts to illustrate concepts as well as additional exercises with solutions. Quantitative Methods is an excellent book for courses on the topic at the graduate level. The book also serves as an authoritative reference and self-study guide for financial and business professionals, as well as readers looking to reinforce their analytical skills.
The book includes numerous exercises and examples that help students understand the relevance of quantitative ideas to business. Assuming no previous knowledge, the text provides complete coverage for a first course in quantitative methods.

Taking a non-threatening, non-theoretical approach to a subject students often find difficult, this book avoids rigorous mathematics and concentrates on applying quantitative ideas to the work situation.
