‘It’s a step-by-step process’ – Ashton

first_imgCity’s remaining scheduled Sky Bet Championship matches:Blackburn Rovers (A)Sheffield Wednesday (H)Nottingham Forest (A)Cardiff City (H)Hull City (H)Middlesbrough (A)Stoke City (H)Swansea City (A)Preston North End (H) The EFL has announced that the second tier of English Football will provisionally return over the weekend of June 20th. City have nine games of the scheduled season still to play, five of those at home and four away, though the matches will be played behind closed doors.Ashton, who sits on the EFL board, welcomed Sunday’s announcement – a week after City were allowed to return to small group training – and spoke exclusively on Robins TV about the developments.“Yes, it’s good news,” he said. “Baby steps but it’s good to see we now have a provisional date for Championship football to return. We now have some certainty in what has been and continues to be a very uncertain world, but it is a timely boost for so many people.“We’re really pleased. The players are back in training, albeit social distancing with the protocols that are in place. I’ve seen them training and they look in great shape, they are eager and keen to play and keen to restart the season.“As I say it’s baby steps. We step through each stage following the Government protocols to make sure we get the game back on and get it on safely and in a sensible manner. We’re getting traction and yes it looks like we will return fairly soon.“I think it’s been a stage process,” he added, explaining how we got to this point after months of concerns whether or not the season had any hope of resuming. “There was much debate and discussion how we would return to train with Government protocols in place. Those protocols are being stepped through now. The next stage is the return to play protocols and what that looks like.”Ashton also touched on the fact that supporters will not be permitted to attend matches, however plans are in place and discussions ongoing regarding live streaming.He said: “It is clear we will be returning to stadiums without supporters and while that will be a very different and frustrating world for many, it is necessary that we follow the protocols and return the game safely.”He added: “It’s a very different world that we will return to, so we want to make sure supporters have the best opportunity to see all of our games, home and away. We are in discussion with broadcasters. We would like to make sure we stream our games via Robins TV to make sure our fans get as good a matchday experience as they can. Even if they can’t be here, Robins TV will make sure they are here in spirit and get the opportunity to watch the game in the best possible way.”Watch the full interview:last_img read more

Powered by Firework In his managerial career at Chelsea, Antonio Conte wished to have Romelu Lukaku in his team in his second season at Stamford Bridge. However, the deal was not finalized at that point of time as the Red Devils snatched the Belgian centre forward away from the Blues.Advertisement In this season, the situation is quite different for Antonio Conte. Inter Milan are looking interested to bring in one player between Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez. According to the sources, the Belgian centre forward is more beneficial for Inter Milan than Alexis Sanchez.Advertisement Alexis Sanchez gets a higher salary than Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United. The weekly wages of Alexis Sanchez are so high that Inter Milan will not wish to afford at this point of time. Romelu Lukaku is one of the strongest centre forwards available in the transfer market.Mauro Icardi might leave the club in this summer transfer window. That’s why the club management of Inter Milan desperately want a centre forward to replace him. The Belgian centre forward is not a regular starter under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. So, the deal might be finalized within next few days if both the clubs can come to an agreement.Advertisement Marouane Fellaini retires from international football  Advertisementlast_img read more

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsoredlast_img read more

Compliance: SOX Pressure Eases For SMBs

Compliance: SOX Pressure Eases For SMBs

first_imgJust a few months after the SEC Chairman Christopher Cox said that it would never happen, Cox testified before the House Committee on Small Business last week that the SEC plans to give small businesses an additional year grace period before needing to comply with Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley Act. An extension to the December 15, 2008 deadline would push the deadline out to the end of 2009. Businesses with less than $75 million market capitalization would be affected by this change.Costs related to Sarbanes-Oxley have hit small businesses especially hard. So hard in fact that in 2006, 2% of all small businesses decided to go private rather than have to face up to the requirements imposed by SOX. The SEC seems to have been swayed by pleas from Senators like John Kerry of Massachusetts and Olympia Snowe from Maine, and the House Small Business Chairwoman Representative Nydia Velazquez.Many small business will consider this temporary SOX reprieve to be good news. But it might be wise if small companies take advantage of the extra time to prepare for what seems to be the inevitable requirement of compliance.last_img read more

Competing On Design Thinking

Competing On Design Thinking

first_imgDesign thinking doesn’t guarantee innovation, but innovation always hinges on design-thinking principles.Steve Jobs famously said, “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” Design thinking takes this notion further and provides a set of tools to power innovation through design.As the popularity of design thinking continues to expand and spread across a variety of domains, it begs the question: Will design thinking ever reach the point of diminishing returns? In a recent Harvard Business Review postOpens in a new window, IDEOOpens in a new window CEO Tim Brown entertained a similar question: “When everyone is doing design thinking, is it still a competitive advantage?”Competing on design thinking requires a fundamental shift in how we approach design to solve business problems and, more important, how we channel the essential values of design thinking in everything we do. For design thinking to make a greater impact and enable a competitive edge, the emphasis has to be—first and foremost—on what I like to call the application of its core principlesOpens in a new window.This viewpoint requires leadership with forward-thinking ideals. With this mindset, we can cement a culture of design thinkers who can expand the window of opportunity from which an innovation foundation through design can be built. In this new series, I will shed new light on the central ideas—such as empathy, integrated solutions, the principle of failing early and often, and ambiguity—that place design thinking at the core of customer-centric organizations.Design thinking calls for a fundamental shift in mindsetTo deliver results through design thinking, the concept must be embraced as a way of thinking through design that is native to the problem we are trying to solve—not as a timed activity or practice tied to a special project or associated with a formal initiative. Whenever I discuss innovationOpens in a new window, I often argue that we need to have an innovation mindsetOpens in a new window present at all times for it to flourish in the enterprise.In the same way, success with design thinking demands a design-thinking mindset. We should consider design thinking as an endless opportunity for delivering customer-centric solutions with a holistic approach.When we think through design, we seek that intrinsic value, which is hidden or trapped. We are thinking in the design.Design thinking isn’t just reserved for new products and servicesDesign thinking is the art and science of solving problems—not limited to just new products and services.By applying design-thinking principles, sometimes we are also solving old problems with new questions – in addition to addressing brand-new problems. This is innovation from within. We turn our held assumptions inside out to uncover the new in the old, whether it’s an unmet need or underutilized demand.I often cite cost reduction as a great example because it can be explored effectively through design thinking. Eliminating waste and reducing cost to seize new opportunities may be considered as a lightweight alternative to developing cutting-edge products. However, lowering cost without business disruption or providing more with less is as great a challenge as anything else. Besides, it’s a true innovation competency with the potential to deliver equally greater returns.Design thinking is the future of workThe future of work lies in the hands of design thinkers. When we consider design in the holistic sense and beyond its traditional boundaries, we see it emerge in everything we do—regardless of our organization’s size, industry, or business model. The three pillars of customer-centric work put human-centered design at the core of our everyday work: What we do, how we do it, and why we do it.For design thinking to deliver results, each of these pillars needs to be aligned in unison with a singular objective: Customer centricity. Moreover, design thinking is not a thing that comes with an expiration date, per se. Rather, it is the way we work and think. Companies that integrate the core principles of design thinking often value a culture that fosters a more-creative, human-centered approach to work.They can find the right balance of motivation and influence to apply design-thinking principles across all ranks of their workforce and blend them across all layers of their business processes. To scale and deliver results, these principles need to be accessible and usable by larger segments of the workforce. And cross-fertilization of ideas establishes a deeper level of thinking embraced as a cultural force.Bottom lineI see design thinking as a framework for innovation. We pollinate new and old ideas, which translate into solutions that drive growth and profitability. This is how we compete on design thinking. And its core principles remain timeless for generations to come.Stay tuned for my next blog in the Design ThinkingOpens in a new window series.Connect with me on Twitter (@KaanTurnaliOpens in a new window) and LinkedInOpens in a new window.This post appeared first on turnali.com.Opens in a new windowlast_img read more
