Making it Work: I know it works in practice, but does it work in theory?
To succeed in the digital age, you have to be practical. You have to be able to move quickly to deal with changing circumstances. But you also have to turn what you learn at the coalface of your business into formalised knowledge which you can perpetuate throughout the organisation. It isn't enough to be able to do it in practice. You have to be able to get it to work in theory too.

I know it works in practice, but does it work in theory? is the latest issue of
Making it Work, which looks at changes in technology and how they are impacting on the business community.

New Thinking: Cash Registers
Cash registers are great. You get a cash register and you're in business. Cash registers are magic. They are a license for printing money.

Few question that the Internet has suffered from its fair share of hype. The magical word that has been setting the fires burning over the last year or so is "ecommerce." For some, ecommerce has taken on almost religious connotations. Every time the word is mentioned, people stand back in awe.

Nua Causes a Stir...
Record Numbers go online, but Irish banks are averse to electronic commerce, according to Ireland's Sunday Independent, which quoted extensively from Nua Internet Surveys this weekend.

Kevin Moore of the Independent said, "A global electronic marketplace is developing, which will be free of geography and trading hours and in which consumers have detailed information about availability and price of the product or services they require. But Irish banks are oblivious to these developments, according to Nua.". Read the article "
European Banks - Slow to Respond".

New Thinking: Being Yourself
It strikes me as interesting that so many people on the Internet don't want to be their standard selves. This is particularly the case with regard to how people behave within what have commonly become known as chat areas. It's also reflected by the amount of people who use Hotmail-type accounts in order to achieve anonymity.

Nua Internet Surveys: Are European Telecoms Hindering Net Growth?

The countries in question were the UK, Germany and France and their experience is not dissimilar to the experience of the majority of mainland European countries.

New Thinking: I Trust You
To say, "I trust you," is a difficult thing for us to say to some person or business we have experienced purely through the medium of the Internet.

If I asked you to give me your credit card in return for, say, a copy of my upcoming book, 'The Caring Economy,' what would your response be? Assuming that you wanted the book in the first place, would myself and Nua have done enough in the online space to be seen as trustworthy?

I believe that, all things being equal, you would have an increased likelihood of trusting Nua for a number of reasons...
