Abstract

The problems of the Lloyd's insurance market over the past few years have been extensively reported. The market survived nevertheless and has since undergone extensive restructuring to address the problems of the past. This has included a fundamental review of its regulatory framework. The new Financial Services and Markets Bill introduces oversight of Lloyd's by the Financial Services Authority (FSA), thus implementing the key recommendation of Lloyd's own review of its regulatory arrangements, published last year.

Abstract

Purpose

An experience marketing case: Land Rover Ltd. transformed the test drive into a personal learning and loyalty experience for their customers and potential customer “Guests” at a global network of Land Rover Experience Centres.

Design/methodology/approach

The Land Rover Experience platform, in the marketing role it has today, started to take shape in the late 1990s when the author and his associates began to craft it into a viable business strategy. As a case study, it offers executives a how-to guide to “marketing experiences.”

Findings

Land Rover enthusiasts and owners consider themselves Land Rover people but many need off-road training to familiarize themselves with all the car’s features used in rough terrain driving.

Practical implications

Two decades after pioneering the program, when the author retired in 2019, there were over 65 experience operations in place with more than one million Guests a year actively participating in Jaguar and Land Rover experience programs around the world.

Originality/value

The question for corporate executives should not be “How do we build Guest experiences into our marketing plan?” In many businesses the question needs to be “How do we build our marketing plan around rich and memorable Guest experiences?”

Abstract

Restates some old truths and suggests some new areas within the special areas of maintenance multi‐skilling teams. Multi‐skilled teamworking, properly resourced as a cultural change process and not an administrative reform, can assure business success by making teamworking useful across the whole workforce. Discusses the flexibility of labour debate and the problems found when implementing multi‐skilled teams. Looks at what managers hope to gain from multi‐skilled teams and what is to be done as a result of these findings.

Abstract

The National Library Service (NLS) produces about 2,000 talking books and 50 magazines per year on specially formatted cassette tape for free distribution to a readership of about 764,000. Cassettes and special players are delivered by US Postal Service from a network of 138 participating libraries. To control the cost of technical obsolescence and to meet patron and sponsor expectations, NLS will replace this analog system with a digital system over the next ten years.

Abstract

Self-monitoring has become one of the most widely employed self-control procedures in special education for students with learning disabilities and emotional or behavioral disorders. Although its success has been documented across age groups, settings, and diverse applications, researchers have continued to study the question of whether focusing self-monitoring on certain target behaviors – particularly attention to task or academic performance – will yield superior outcomes for students. We review 11 available studies that have examined this issue, classifying each study according to the ways in which the researchers had students monitor their own behavior. The results show only small differences among the different methods and indicate a need for teachers to continue exercising professional judgment in planning the use of self-monitoring.

Abstract

John Lewis Partnership Limited is primarily engaged in the business of retail distribution. At present it trades in 17 department stores and 60 Waitrose food supermarkets. All this has developed from a small shop in Oxford Street, London, specialising in selling textiles, still an important part of the Partner ship's trade and of which it is a manufacturer on a small scale. It also manufactures in a smaller way for some other of its requirements. Turnover in 1976 was £370m. and there are approximately 23 000 Partners working in the business.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to present the process, challenges and lessons learned from carrying out a small digital project to create a web resource of unique historic materials related to crime in New York City. All aspects of digital project management are discussed, including selection, infrastructure, budgeting, workflow and delivery.

Design/methodology/approach

Experiences from project administration, including management of a combination in‐house and outsourced digitization and metadata are discussed. Formation and management of the resulting web resource is explained, which is the product of a creative amalgamation of commercial and open source software. Challenges encountered are presented with suggestions for practical solutions and considerations for future projects.

Findings

This grant‐funded pilot project presented foreseen and unforeseen problems. Lessons learned and solutions suggesting best approaches for a small‐scale digitization project are presented here.

Practical implications

In this paper best practices and suggestions for managing a small digital project are presented, including financial, staffing and technical considerations.

Originality/value

Unlike many other discussions that focus on management of large institutional projects, this study presents an incremental approach for small‐scale digitization projects. Presented here are practical uses of available applications for establishing project infrastructure to sustain and continue growth of digital content for small institutions.

Abstract

Purpose

Prior to 9/11, terrorism was subject to political, scholarly, and media debates. A large body of literature on the topic reflected researchers' long‐standing interest in the topic. In the near decade since 9/11, terrorism and its threat have only gained urgency. This paper aims to provide a selected bibliography of resources, in print and electronic format, that focus on terrorism. Public and academic libraries have been providing access to terrorism‐related resources, but no thematic bibliography has been published in professional journals since 2001. This guide aims to aid librarians in making decisions about developing and maintaining collections on the topic.

Design/methodology/approach

The authors consulted a variety of sources, including the Library of Congress catalog, WorldCat, Bowker's Global Books in Print database, book reviews in Choice, Booklist, and in journals within terrorism studies. As John Jay College of Criminal Justice is home to The Center on Terrorism and the college offers an MA Certificate Program in Terrorism Studies, the authors also consulted the college library collection that supports these scholarly activities on terrorism at the college.

Practical implications

Because of the volume of terrorism‐related scholarship and the number of available resources on the topic, this bibliography does not purport to be complete.

Findings

Included in this guide are print and electronic encyclopedias, books, periodicals, databases, and websites covering terrorism.

Originality/value

This guide aims to assist students, faculty, and the general public in navigating the vast array of terrorism‐related resources. Focusing on research conducted and published since 2001, it is also intended as a guide for public and academic librarians who develop, maintain, or evaluate a collection on the topic.
