Series: The Financial Times, Pitman Publishing. When this book was first published in 1991 it presented a viable approach to getting IT under control. If you want a more up-to-date text on managing IT methodically and quantitatively I recommend anything written by Dan Remenyi. However, if you want deep insights and a book from which you can find inspiration or ideas by turning to a random page, this will serve you long after the more technical tomes have lost their appeal.

At times he was crying and shaking which was not like Andrew at al. She said on the day of the tragedy James had been off work and had taken the kids to school before returning home from a shopping trip to do some chores. He went upstairs and she left the house to collect their children, aged nine and 10, from school at around . 0pm.
Hidden Agenda (1990), directed by Ken Loach, is a political thriller about British state terrorism during the Northern Irish Troubles that depicts the fictional assassination of an American civil rights lawyer. The film opens with an Orange walk on The Twelfth, and a tape being handed to an American human rights activist, which becomes his death warrant. It begins with a quote from Margaret Thatcher insisting that Northern Ireland is part of Britain.
Risk management has undoubtedly moved up the corporate agenda in recent years with fears of wars and terrorism being added to the usual list of business worries. Ken Davey, a managing director with FM Global, says: "To best protect cashflow, competitive position and profit, companies need to assess the potential risks that can impact top revenue sources and make sure there is business continuity planning.

The 127-year-old Financial Times, whose pink pages are as much a symbol of the City as the pinstriped suit, is to be sold to a Japanese financial media company by its British owners for £844m. John Fallon, Pearson’s chief executive, said: Education and journalism are both great and noble callings but they are not the same thing and require different skills, capabilities and intensity of focus. FT's new owners Nikkei are cut from the same template.
