The Frameworks of English is a step-by-step guide through the various levels of language, describing the morphological, lexical, grammatical and phonological frameworks of contemporary English in a clear and logical way.

Consulting Frameworks

Consulting frameworks are what consultants use to frame a problem as well as its solution. Consulting is a specialty of problem solving, and these frameworks act as shortcuts to problem solving. It doesn't mean that they are exclusive to consulting! anyone can learn them to help improve their problem solving skills! For the ones interested in joining consulting, practicing 1000 cases doesn't help if you don't use a framework consistently. Therefore a better approach for preparation is to understand and memorize the frameworks followed by a few cases only to store the framework in your long-term memory. Many applicants practice cases for months and then are surprised that the cases during the interview are not similar. I don't need to belabor this point too much--you get it. Learn how to think with frameworks rather than brute force your way through an unhealthy amount of cases. If you want practice cases, most if not all consulting firms offer their own cases online and for free. Those are more than enough to practice. The Concise Reads Business Success series is a collection of short reading material that highlights important concepts in business education that every student, business owner, and entrepreneur should know from accounting and incorporating, to building a robust business plan and managing operations. We hope you enjoy Peter's easy to read explanations. The affordable pricing makes this series available to anyone willing to learn and the concise aspect makes it so it does not take more than a single day to learn or a single weekend to master. Good luck and please review the book when you're done so that others could see the value derived from this affordable series. Thank you for your interest and happy concise reading!

Driven by the need and desire to reduce costs, organizations are faced with a set of decisions that require analytical scrutiny. Enterprise Architecture A to Z: Frameworks, Business Process Modeling, SOA, and Infrastructure Technology examines cost-saving trends in architecture planning, administration, and management. To establish a framework for discussion, this book begins by evaluating the role of Enterprise Architecture Planning and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) modeling. It provides an extensive review of the most widely deployed architecture framework models. In particular, the book discusses The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) and the Zachman Architectural Framework (ZAF) in detail, as well as formal architecture standards and all four layers of these models: the business architecture, the information architecture, the solution architecture, and the technology architecture. The first part of the text focuses on the upper layers of the architecture framework, while the second part focuses on the technology architecture. In this second section, the author presents an assessment of storage technologies and networking and addresses regulatory and security issues. Additional coverage includes high-speed communication mechanisms such as Ethernet, WAN and Internet communication technologies, broadband communications, and chargeback models. Daniel Minoli has written a number of columns and books on the high-tech industry and has many years of technical hands-on and managerial experience at top financial companies and telecom/networking providers. He brings a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to these pages. By reviewing the strategies in this book, CIOs, CTOs, and senior managers are empowered by a set of progressive approaches to designing state-of-the-art IT data centers.
