There are a number of different types of projects in-development underway at any moment.
In-development The IP editorial team have their own work that they feel is ready for comment, even though it is still in draft form. These are all stored in the category In-development.
Collaborative writing These are articles started by readers or the IP editorial team as collaborative projects. You and all other IP readers are invited to add your thoughts, ideas and words to the development of the article. These are all stored in the category Collaborative writing.
Ideas These are pretty much what the word suggests. They are thoughts, concepts, brainwaves, inspirations, philosophies, notions, and more, that have been sent to us for inclusion by readers who simply to get it out there and/ or to hear your views. These are all stored in the category Ideas.
De-fogged These are our translations of existing published work because we believe they need to be made more readable. Our aim is to translate them from the language of academic and scholar to that of practicing manager. These are all stored in the category De-fogged.
If you look at the volume of research and published items coming out of the world’s universities and research centres you will be amazed. There is so much first class work going on. The problem is too often it is hidden in publications that you have never heard of and have neither the time nor the will to find. Now, we could simply point you to those places, and some times we do that. Sadly, when we do their length, language, style and even layout often makes them heavy going for people whose daily life needs as much clarity as possible. We are working to de-fog these items so that you can see their true value. We want you to be able to use as many of the models, insights and ideas as you need without struggling through the mist.
Features These are completed articles by IP editors and other contributors. These are all stored in the category Features.
Book reviews These are what the label says, reviews of books and other publications by IP editors and contributors. They are stored in the category book reviews.
