Is Cisco better than Juniper Networks?
I don't think it will be appropriate to say make a blanket statement that one vendor is better than the other. The best solution for each customer really depends on what they need therefore the requirements gathering must be thorough. Factors such as cost, current or future skills to manage the technology, technical needs of the client will help determine what is right for the client. For instance, a client that already has experience with one vendor may be better off sticking to that technology unless the current offerings fail to meet other needs. On the other hand, the client may have applications that require in depth tweaking of network parameters in which case the solution must be one where the protocols can be tinkered with. In summary, do a thorough requirements analysis and then use that to determine what is best for the client
How to do deal with a problem of low morale and high employee turnover?
Low morale and high turnover are likely symptoms of an underlying problem. First the organization must re-assess its talent management plan. There must be a clearly defined and relevant talent acquisition and retention strategy. I use the work relevant because the strategy for Gen Y employees will be different from the one for baby boomers. Secondly, management must seek to understand how employees feel. A well crafted employee survey can reveal a lot. Often times the assumption is that pay is the biggest concern but anonymous surveys may reveal some other cultural issues that may be bothering employees that demotivates them. An action plan can then be created based on the results of the survey. If the firm can afford it, the survey can be done by a third party that specializes in such surveys.
How do you write a business plan?
A business plan is a formal document defining a roadmap to starting a business. A good business plan must be concise and straight to the point with the following sections: executive summary, description of the business, market analysis, proposed organization, summary of the product, marketing plan, financing plan, and financial projections. You must put yourself in the seat of a potential investor you want to convince and make bold, convincing an realistic statements to convince anyone reading it that it is a good idea.
