Performance Improvement Through Performance Based Contracting
PSSF Teleconference [09/25/2012] Child welfare agencies continue to search for ways to improve performance and outcomes for children. To help align the child welfare system's focus on outcomes with how services are financed, more states are using performance-based contracting. With performance-based contracting, states shift incentives so that service providers find it easier to match the needs of children and families with the array of services offered. Adopting a performance-based model poses significant policy, practice, and implementation changes. Join us on the next Peer Web Teleconference discussion on Performance Improvement through Performance Based Contracting. Crystal Collins-Camargo from University of Louisville Kent School of Social Work and former Director of the National Quality Improvement Center on the Privatization of Child Welfare Services will provide an overview of the Performance Based Contracting, and lessons learned from a study conducted in 2010. Gia Compton, Program Manager from Georgia and Mindy Norwood, Program Manager from Iowa will share how they are implementing Performance Based Contracting in their states.

Stanford Seminar - The Future of Wireless Communications Hint: It's not a linear amplifier
EE380: Computer Systems Colloquium Seminar The Future of Wireless Communications Hint: It's not a linear amplifier Speaker: Douglas Kirkpatrick, Eridan Communications Wireless communications are ubiquitous in the 21 st century--we use them to read the newspaper, talk to our colleagues or children, watch sporting events or other forms of entertainment, and to monitor and control the environment we live in -- among just a few. This exponentiation of demand for wireless capacity has driven a new era of innovation in this space because spectrum and energy are expensive and constrained resources. The future of wireless communications will demand leaps in spectrum efficiency, bandwidth efficiency, and power efficiency for successful technology deployments. Key applications that will fundamentally change how we interact with wireless systems and the demands we place on wireless technologies include Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks, massive MIMO, and the evasive unicorn of the "universal handset". While each of these breakthrough "system" capabilities make simultaneous demands of spectrum efficiency, bandwidth efficiency, and power efficiency, the current suite of legacy technologies forces system designers to make undesirable trade-offs because of the limitations of linear amplifier technology. Eridan's solution is the antithesis of "linear". The Switch Mode Mixer Modulator (SMs3 ) technology emphasizes precision and flexibility, and simultaneously delivers spectrum efficiency, bandwidth efficiency, and power efficiency. The resulting capabilities dramatically increase total wireless capacity with minimum need for expanding operations into extended regions of the wireless spectrum. This presentation will discuss the driving forces behind wireless system performance, the physics of linear amplifiers and SM3, measured performance of SM3 systems, and the implications for wireless system capabilities in the near future. About the Speaker: Dr. Kirkpatrick is the co-founder and CEO of Eridan Communications, Inc., a Santa Clara based company developing transceiver products for the next generations of wireless communications -- 5G and beyond. Dr. Kirkpatrick is also a founding General Partner of InnerProduct Partners (IPP), a San Francisco based early stage VC firm, and the acting CEO of a very early stage startup in rare-earth- free permanent magnets based in Cleveland. Previous to InnerProduct Partners, from 2010-2013 he was a partner at Vantage Point Capital Partners, a large multi- stage VC firm, also based in the San Francisco Bay area. Prior to Vantage Point Capital Partners, from 2002--2010, Dr. Kirkpatrick was a Program Manager and Chief Scientist at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). While he was at DARPA he started and managed programs that, among other things, developed and deployed the first LED flashlights, started and validated the DOD path to bio-renewable jet fuel, developed and demonstrated ultra-high efficiency solar cells, developed and demonstrated full 3d dynamic holographic displays, and developed and demonstrated portable tools for the rapid de-novo synthesis of DNA up to 10,000 base pairs long. In addition to his DARPA role he was simultaneously the Senior Technologist for Technology Productization for the Undersecretary for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics in the Department of Defense. Prior to his tour at DARPA he was the VP for R&D at Fusion Lighting, a lighting technology startup in the greater Washington DC area, and before that a VP and Division Manager for Science Applications International Corporation, also in the greater Washington DC area. Dr. Kirkpatrick is a Fellow of the American Physics Society, a Member of the IEEE, and a Member of the Materials Research Society. Dr. Kirkpatrick holds a BS degree in Physics and Mathematics (1980) from the College of William and Mary and a Ph.D. in Physics from M.I.T. (1988).

Selling a Marketing Agency with WebsiteClosers.com
Today's segment will be on selling an Advertising or Marketing Agency with WebsiteClosers.com. For purposes of this segment, I'll just refer to selling either of these two business models as a "marketing agency", although they certainly are usually different. The vast majority of marketing agencies today focus almost entirely on digital marketing campaigns. Print and traditional advertising might also be represented by the agency. Because the skills necessary to market or advertise a digital business vs a bricks and mortar business are usually quite different, for this segment will just stick to advertising website properties, which is usually focused exclusively on digital marketing, whether it be in the form of PPC management, SEM/SMO development, press release submissions, content management, monitoring webmaster tools, managing and developing email campaigns (html template creation, list management, etc.), consumer shopping engine management, product feed management, and more. To identify how to sell a Marketing Agency, one must first look inside the company. The agency is a service-oriented business, and thus, many times the value of the company is connected to the owner. Sometimes the owner has long lasting relationships with service providers or with merchants, so if the owner leaves, merchants could be concerned whether they will continue to receive the same level and value of service they've become accustomed to receiving under current ownership. So, it is highly critical that when an agency owner is preparing to exit his business, that he call a professional brokerage with experience not only in owning and operating digital businesses, but also one that has sold these companies in the past. The brokerage can work hand-in-hand with the owner to identify whether now is the right time to sell, and if not, will work to create a time-based strategy to facilitate the sale without alienating clients. WebsiteClosers.com has this experience and patience necessary to help an owner with any questions he or she may have, and when the time is right, we will be there to help you with the sale of your valuable asset you've worked so hard to build. Additionally, many agency owners want to know what buyers are looking for when reviewing agencies for sale. Our experience has shown that the primary driver is whether the business has a specific niche it caters to, helping it to stand out from the crowd. Also, the financial performance of the business, especially cash flow, needs to be strong, and in perfect world, growing month over month. And also of importance is the client list. Do any of the clients have a particular relationship with the seller? Do any of them represent over 10% of sales? Can reoccurring revenue be planned into the acquisition business plan? And when it comes to the price you can expect when selling a profitable marketing agency, these businesses tend to go a bit higher than general websites, somewhere between a 3 to 6 times multiple of seller's discretionary earnings. Factors that can influence these multiples include: whether sales are in an upswing, static or trending down; the level of competition (or market share) of the business; the firm's placement organically in major search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo, and many more. The final point I'll make today on the sale of marketing firms involves the standard structure you see in most deals today. It's an important note because they do tend to be different than a website acquisition. The trend today seems to be a one-third down payment, one-third in bank financing and one-third in a seller-financing promissory note or performance-based earn out. While this is the standard, and something you'll hear when talking to other brokers, we have experience maximizing cash at the table for agency owners to the tune of 85% where the owner takes a 15% note on the business (not an earn out). This is much more beneficial for both buyer and seller. The buyer only has to put down 10% to buy a business and the seller receives 85% of the transaction in cash with a guaranteed promissory note (rather than a performance-based earn out). Our network of bank relationships will surely help buyers desiring to minimize cash outlay, allowing the company to pay for itself over time. There are of course many other components to buying and selling an advertising agency, so if you have any questions about our processes at WebsiteClosers.com, we invite you to call or email us at info@websiteclosers.com or toll free at (800) 251-1559. We will do everything possible to ensure that when we represent your agency in the marketplace, confidentiality is maintained at the highest level and we will work very hard to maximize your purchase price. Thank you for listening today, and for additional videos related to Selling an online Business, including eCommerce, eBay and Amazon companies, search for Website Closers on YouTube.com.

3 Simple Steps to Marketing Your Mobile App | Get More Exposure and Installs!
Launching a new mobile app? Here are 3 simple steps to marketing getting more downloads and installs. Subscribe here to learn more of my secret SEO tips: https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=neilvkpatel Find me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/neilkpatel/ Read more on my blog: https://neilpatel.com/blog/ Marketing a website's easy. You do some SEO, and you do some content marketing, maybe even some social media marketing, and boom, you're popular. But what happens if you have a mobile app? How do you market it? Well, first off, if you have a mobile app, great. You can start marketing it, and I'll show you how. But if you don't have a mobile app and you're just thinking about making one, and you're curious on how to market it, well, first start off with BuildFire. BuildFire is a quick and easy way where you can build an app without being a developer, and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. So now that we got that out of the way, hopefully, you have a mobile app by now. The first thing you want to do when it comes to marketing your app is generate press. If you're too lazy and you don't want to generate press on your own, go check out prserve.com David's slow. It's founded by a guy named Chris Barrett. And Chris Barrett does performance-based press in which, when you get press, you pay. If he doesn't get you press, you shouldn't pay. Funny enough, that's how all PR should be. I don't know why these companies are trying to charge $10,000, $20,000 monthly retainers when they're not guaranteeing any press. All right, so you can use a service or a company like PRServe. If you want to do it on your own, go check out who's covering apps within your space. If you have a beauty app, then, all right, go check out all the beauty bloggers. Give them the app for free. And don't just give it to them for free when everyone else is getting it for free, but you want to give it to them before you launch it to the public. By giving them early access, they're going to be like, "Oh my God, I love you, Neil. "This app's amazing." And then they're going to cover it; they're going to feel special. And then when everyone starts covering it, then you're going to get some awesome press and some signups. Number two, what you want to do is get coverage in the blogosphere. It could just be someone talking about marketing, assuming you have a marketing app, and they include you within that blog spot. So what I do is I go reach out to all the bloggers who have already written articles that are related to my app. The third thing you want to do, and I hate to say this, spend money on advertising. You can get a ton of traffic from Facebook ads for your app installs. You can also go to other people out there who already have apps and buy ad space from them. You probably have some games on your phone. What do you see when you're playing these games? Every once in awhile it'll be like, pause, ad break, and there'll be an ad for another app. That's when you can get your app in there. It's dirt cheap. You can do this in quantity, and that'll also help you drive a lot of installs. Follow those three things, you'll get a lot more app installs, and you'll be popular, and hopefully, your app monetizes so that way you can make money. Once you have people in your app, then you can start doing like the virality, in which you can do invite flows, give people bonuses and points for sharing, rating, be reviewing your app, which will all help with more installs in the long run. But if you have no one coming into your app, those viral loops won't work.

Aubrey Daniels: Performance Measurement & Incentive Pay
http://aubreydaniels.com/catalog/topics/performance-pay 4th in a series: Richard Warner interviews Aubrey C. Daniels, Ph.D., on his latest book OOPS! 13 Management Practices That Waste Time & Money (and what to do instead)."The modern organization wastes more time and money in the way people are compensated than it wastes in any other area of the business. Salary and hourly pay is pay for showing up, not for performing. Raises are forever. Bonuses are only loosely contingent on performance. Even profit sharing and pay-for-performance plans are poorly designed to create the best performance" (excerpt from OOPS! by Aubrey C. Daniels). Find out why.

How to Value a Company in 3 Easy Steps - Valuing a Business Valuation Methods Capital Budgeting
Clicked here http://www.MBAbullshit.com/ and OMG wow! I'm SHOCKED how easy.. Just for instance I possessed a company comprising of a neighborhood store. To put together that center, I invested $1,000 one year ago on apparatus along with other assets. The equipment in addition to other assets have depreciated by 10% in a single year, so now they're valued at only $900 inside the accounting books. In case I was going to make an effort to offer you this company, what amount would an accountant value it? Relatively easy! $900. The cost of the whole set of assets (less liabilities, if any) can give accountants the "book value" of a typical organization, and such is systematically how accountants observe the worth of an enterprise or company. (We employ the use of the word "book" because the worth of the assets are penned within the company's accounting "books.") http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pCXd4i7DM0 However, imagine this unique company is earning a juicy cash income of $2,000 annually. You would be landing a mighty incredible deal in the event I sold it to you for just $900, right? I, on the flip side, might be taking out a pretty sour pact in the event I offered it to you for just $900, on the grounds that as a result I will take $900 but I will shed $2,000 per annum! Due to this, business directors (dissimilar to accountants), don't make use of merely a company's book value when assessing the value of an organization.So how do they see how much it really is worth? To replace utilizing a business' books or even net worth (the market price of the firm's assets minus the business enterprise's liabilities), financial managers opt to source enterprise worth on how much money it gets in relation to cash flow (real cash acquired... contrary to only "net income" that may not generally be in the format of cash). Basically, a company making $1,000 "free cash flow" monthly having assets worth a very small $1 would remain to be worth a great deal more versus a larger company with substantial assets of $500 in the event the humongous company is attaining only $1 yearly.So far, how do we achieve the exact value of your business? The simplest way would be to mainly look for the net present value of the total amount of long run "free cash flows" (cash inflow less cash outflow).Needless to say, you will come across much more sophisticated formulas to find the value of a company (which you wouldn't genuinely need to learn in detail, since there are numerous gratis calculators on the web), but practically all of such formulas are in a way driven by net present value of cash flows, plus they are likely to take into consideration a few factors for example growth level, intrinsic risk of the company, plus others.

Both the Indian Navy and Coast Guard to receive 16 Dhruv Helicopters each
Both the Indian Navy and Coast Guard to receive 16 Dhruv Helicopters each The government has cleared a proposal worth around Rs 8,000 crore for acquiring Hindustan Aeronautics Limited's 32 Advanced Light Helicopter Dhruv to boost the maritime security capabilities of the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard, HAL today said. Of the 32 helicopters to be built by HAL, both the services will receive 16 each, the company said. The Performance Based Logistics (PBL) support for five years for 16 helicopters for ICG is the unique feature of this contract, an HAL statement said. "The PBL is the purchase of logistics support as an integrated, affordable, performance package designed to optimize system readiness and meet performance goals for the product through long-term support arrangements with clear lines of authority and responsibility," HAL CMD T Suvarna Raju said. He said PBL is emerging as a preferred acquisition strategy for defence acquisition and asset management. Stating that PBL ensures the availability of products to the customer while the responsibility gets transferred to the contractor, HAL said the PBL envisages rewards or penalties based on the performance. The contracts were signed by V Natarajan, General Manager (Helicopter Division), HAL and Jayant Sinha, Joint Secretary & Acquisition Manager (Maritime Systems), MoD, in New Delhi yesterday in the presence of HAL, Navy and Coast Guard officials, the statement said.

LinkedIn's Plans for World Domination
Canada's most trusted higher ed monitor and futurist, Ken Steele, describes the implications of LinkedIn's recent $1.5 billion acquisition of Lynda.com, and its plans to be the keeper of the world's economic graph. In recent years, LinkedIn has become invaluable for alumni relations, mentoring, and now ranking universities based on the career performance of recent graduates. Institutions like Algonquin College allow students to add learning credentials to their LinkedIn profiles with a single button. Excerpts from LinkedIn's announcement video (https://youtu.be/W9jZPAomVvg ) make it clear that they want to manage profiles for every job, higher ed institution, company, and person in the global workforce. LinkedIn will then allow students to search for desirable jobs and employers, assess the skills required for any given position, and the best places to obtain those skills - including through LinkedIn's online courses via Lynda.com. LinkedIn is poised to replace yearbooks, reunions, employment classifieds, headhunting firms, university rankings and educational advisors.

Decolonizing Language Revitalization
September 25, 2013 - How has Eurocentric anthropology and linguistics affected the way we interpret our elders and ancestors who share their cultural knowledge with foreign researchers? Join us for a presentation with Khelsilem Rivers and April Charlo, indigenous peoples from community-based and cultural revitalization backgrounds, who will be discussing decolonization of language revitalization. Their presentation and open dialogue will address the context of rapid language loss and decline, and how colonization has affected or is embedded in the strategies of revitalization. In an effort to revitalize Indigenous languages, communities may have unknowingly adopted or assimilated colonized ways of thinking as they invest interest and attempt to repair or restore ties to culture and language. Are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha, et all with an English-mind or are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha with a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyaw, Kanien'keháka mind? Indigenous languages represent one of the darkest ways in which ethnocide and cultural genocide have occurred. It is expected in the next twenty-five years over 700 of the worlds Indigenous languages will be forgotten. In the Vancouver area alone, the two Indigenous languages are considered critical endangered; Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) language has five to seven fluent speakers and hən̓q̓əmin̓əm has one fluent speaker left. Decolonizing Language Revitalization aims to put forward perspectives of shifting values, cultural understandings, and impacts on community. It is the stories we tell ourselves (as a people) that impacts who we believe we are, and then who we become. But if the stories -- even including, or especially the Indigenous ones -- are filtered through colonialism, we have become a different people because of it. April Charlo from Bitterroot Salish people and is a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Montana. Khelsilem Rivers is a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh-Kwakwa̱ka̱'wakw language revitalization activist from Vancouver.

BrandMill's Automotive & Retail Marketing Experience
Our early and long-term success in marketing is due to BrandMill managing partner Stephen Wayhart's automotive roots in the highly competitive dealer marketing group business for General Motors’ Oldsmobile and Cadillac brands throughout the northeastern and southeastern United States – primarily in the states of Florida, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and West Virginia for over 300 car dealers.

NFV/SDN Reality Check: SDN impact on enterprise SD-WAN efforts – Episode 45
On today’s show we have an interview with Kumar Ramachandran, co-founder and CEO of CloudGenix, on the impact SDN is having on enterprise SD-WAN efforts. But first, let’s take a look at some of the top headlines from across the telecom related NFV, SDN cloud and software space from the past week. First, the Open Compute Project announced the formation of its Telco Project focused on data center technologies for telecom operators. OCP said the open forum will focus on communicating telecom technical requirements to the OCP community; look to strengthen the OCP ecosystem to address the deployment and operational needs of telecom operators; and look to bring its work to telecom data center infrastructure to provide increased cost-savings and agility. Bolstering the program is the addition of AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, EE, SK Telecom and Verizon Communications as members of OCP. Also joining OCP are Equinix and Nexius, with the organization noting Nokia Networks has announced plans to incorporate OCP designs into its AirFrame Data Center portfolio. Also this week, a new report from Technology Business Research expects telecom operators to increase their reliance on software technologies based on NFV and SDN to reduce costs and better compete against established software-based service providers. The TBR report claims telecom operators over the next year will look to focus on consolidation and cost-cutting initiatives “to improve the profitability of their enterprise business,” citing recent moves by CenturyLink and Verizon in looking to divest their data centers and IBM’s recent acquisition of AT&T’s managed application and hosting service business. TBR senior analyst Chris Antlitz said carriers like AT&T and Verizon were moving away from the public cloud business due to their inability to gain market share against established competitors such as Amazon Web Services. Instead, Antlitz said operators will focus their 2016 cloud strategies on providing network connectivity and value-added services to solutions offered by leading cloud service providers and through interconnection platforms such as AT&T’s NetBond. Antlitz added that in a move to reduce costs, carriers will emphasize using leasing agreements with data center providers to gain capacity, rather than investing in launching additional facilities. Further, TBR said carriers were adopting NFV and SDN to reduce costs and gain agility in service offerings, citing AT&T’s Network on Demand platform and Verizon’s SDN-based SD-WAN offering. The analyst firm added early adopters are set to reap the greatest benefit, gaining a time-to-market advantage in offering enhanced applications to enterprises. Thanks for joining us on this week’s NFV/SDN Reality Check. Make sure to check us out again next week when we are scheduled to speak with Tech Mahindra on tips for CSPs in deploying SDN and NFV.
