Why ….

Someone gave me this interesting ‘argument’ and ‘opinion’…just enjoy it, for relax.




Men Are Just Happier People —

What do you expect from such simple creatures?

Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. You can be President. You can never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park. Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky. You don’t have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental-$100. People never stare at your chest when you’re talking to them. New shoes don’t cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all the time. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks. A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, He or she can still be your friend. Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.. You almost never have strap problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.. Everything on your face stays its original color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your face and neck. You can play with toys all your life. One wallet and one pair of shoes — one color for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can ‘do’ your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache. You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives On December 24 in 25 minutes. No wonder men are happier.

How to Create a World Class Company


Krisis ekonomi melanda Amerika Serikat serta Eropa dan dikhawatirkan menjalar ke Asia. Berbagai perusahaan berpacu mencari cara yang efektif untuk menata ulang daya saing mereka. Namun sistem manajemen kinerja yang dikembangkan saat ini, yang mayoritas didasarkan pada sistem pengukuran finansial, belum dapat mengakomodasi tuntutan persaingan tersebut.

Berbagai perusahaan mengadopsi kerangka sistem manajemen kinerja yang dikenalkan oleh para ahli secara luas dua puluh tahun terakhir, seperti SMART (Cross & Lynch, 1989), Performance Measurement Questionnaire (Dixon et al, 1990), Performance for World Class Manufacturing (Maskell, 1991), Quantum Performance Measurement Model (Hronec, 1993), Balanced Scorecard (Kaplan & Norton, 1996), Performance Prism (Neely & Adams, 1999), ISO series dan Baldrige Criteria (Departemen Perdagangan Amerika Serikat, 1987). Namun, bagi perusahaan yang beroperasi di Indonesia, sistem manajemen kinerja yang dikembangkan di dunia barat itu kurang pas dengan tuntutan lingkungan usaha di sini—yang memiliki aturan pemerintah, sumber daya, dan keterampilan serta pengetahuan pekerja yang berbeda.

How to Create A World Class Company berfokus pada proses perancangan Sistem Manajemen Kinerja yang kontekstual terhadap kebutuhan tiap perusahaan, sehingga perusahaan tidak sekadar mengadopsi suatu kerangka kerja tanpa melihat kebutuhan riil, kondisi usaha, serta lingkungan persaingan yang dihadapi saat ini. Buku ini dilengkapi metodologi untuk merancang sendiri Sistem Manajemen Kinerja yang sesuai dengan kebutuhan perusahaan serta dilengkapi contoh perancangan di perusahaan Indonesia dan detail indikator pada tiap perspektifnya.
