More importantly, they argue that trust plays a vital role in economic systems because it is essential to the process of exchange (Arrow, 1972).

This report, based on the latest research from the International Business Report (IBR), explores the global shift in the number of women at the top of the business world and examines ways to make this growth permanent and parity possible. Key findings from the survey include: • women hold 24% of senior management roles globally, a three point increase over the previous year • there has been a sharp rise in China, with 51% of senior management positions held by women, compared to 25% last year • the proportion of businesses employing women as CEOs has risen from 9% to 14% • education and talent management may work in tandem with flexible work arrangements, which 67% of respondents offer, to increase the number of women in top leadership • just 19% of board roles around the world are held by women • although quotas have been put into place around the globe to increase women’s participation in boards, 55% of respondents oppose such quotas. Changing perceptions FIGURE 1: PERCENTAGE OF WOMEN IN SENIOR MANAGEMENT Over the past year, women have grabbed headlines in every industry and every corner of the globe. In the arts, more female directors, producers and writers were able to get their work into cinemas, television and theatre. In politics, an increasing number of women won elections: South Korea, for instance, recently swore in its first female president. Approximately 17 countries have women as head of government, head of state or both (a number that, according to the Inter-Parliamentary Union and UN Women, has more than doubled since 2005), and the world average for women in parliament totaled 20.4% as of 1 February 20131. The corporate world also saw firsts: Marissa Mayer broke ground when she took the helm of Yahoo more than six months pregnant. Women breaking barriers was the conversation of the year – from the much-discussed piece in The Atlantic, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” by a Princeton professor and former US State Department official, Anne-Marie Slaughter, to...
Just one in seven delegates at the annual World Economic Forum gathering was a woman this year. This statistic alone explains why the issue of women in businesses inspires so much passion and debate, emphasising that the path from the classroom to the boardroom is anything but straightforward. Ironically, attendees in Davos looked at the role improved gender balance can have on businesses’ bottom lines, highlighting the example of the car market in which women influence 85% of purchases worldwide. Involving women at all stages of the production process, from design, to engineering, to marketing, could help businesses create products and services that appeal to both genders. We have been tracking the proportion of women in senior management since 2004 and the research this year finds that the proportion of women in the most senior roles has stagnated at 24% the same as the result in 2012, 2009 and 2007. The question this raises is: what are the roadblocks on the path to senior management? This report starts by looking at education, an essential building block of any career. We find some positive news here, with female participation in education soaring in many economies over recent years, particularly emerging markets, which have traditionally lagged 4 Women in business: the path to the boardroom...
Forecasting the future is risky, but businesses that fail to look forward will almost certainly be left behind in an increasingly competitive and globalized world. By exploring the top 10 risks and opportunities in the insurance sector in 2013 and looking ahead to 2015, this report takes the pulse of current thinking and expectations from industry executives and EY specialists. The results can be used as a benchmark for your business and can feed into strategic decision-making. The top 10 risks and opportunities are based on a survey of executives at over 65 insurance companies across the globe, representing both rapid-growth and developed markets. The rankings were discussed with relevant business executives and EY experts, to gather the insights and perspectives on which this report is based. Our research reveals that macroeconomic trends and a slower rate of growth are viewed as the leading risks for insurance companies.
Zend Framework is based on simplicity, object-oriented best practices, corporate friendly licensing, and a rigorously tested agile codebase. Zend Framework is focused on building more secure, reliable, and modern Web 2.0 applications & web services, and consuming widely available APIs from leading vendors like google, amazon, flickr as well as API providers. Frameworks and best practices mean reduced training costs and quicker timeto-market – important factors in adoption decisions. Built so you can pick and choose just the pieces you need to turbocharge your web applications – all your developers know where to find their PHP / Zend Framework code, speeding new development and reducing maintenance costs. Zend Framework also provides an advanced model-view-controller (MVC) implementation that can be used to establish a basic structure for your ZF applications. Model- View-Controller : Model - This is the part of your application that defines its basic functionality behind a set of abstractions. Data access routines and some business logic can be defined in the model. View - Views define exactly what is presented to the user. Usually controllers pass data to each view to render in some format. Views will often collect data from the user, as well. This is where you're likely to find HTML markup in your MVC applications.

PHP has been used to develop dynamic websites for over 10 years. Initially all PHP websites were written as PHP code interspersed within HTML on the same page. This works very well initially as there is immediate feedback and for simple scripts this appears to be all that is needed. PHP grew in popularity through versions 3 and 4, and so it was inevitable that larger and larger applications would be written in PHP. It became obvious very quickly that intermixing PHP code and HTML was not a long term solution for large websites. The problems are obvious in hindsight: maintainability and extensibility. Whilst PHP intermixed with HTML allows for extremely rapid results, in the longer term it is hard to continue to update the website. One of the really cool features of publishing on the web is that it is dynamic with content and site layouts changing. Large websites change all the time. The look and feel of the site is updated regularly. New content is added and content is regularly re-categorized as the needs of the users (and advertisers!) change. Something had to be done! The Zend Framework was created to help ensure that the production of PHP based websites is easier and maintainable in the long term. It contains a rich set of reusable components containing everything from a set of Model-View-Controller application components to PDF generation. Over the course of this book, we will look at how to use all the components within the context of a real website.
