 The Creativity Advantage: Is your organisation leader of the pack? Success in product and service innovation depends on creativity as a key input. Without a healthy and continuing supply of ideas, most organizations would cease to exist. Peter Cook, author of the Best Practice Creativity explains to Abeceder that the fundamental challenge facing leaders in the twenty-first century is how to profit from individual potential and leverage it so that it produces organizational innovation and excellence. This article takes a strategic view of creativity as a key element of competitive advantage. It outlines the conditions for creativity to flourish and is supported through the use of a number of case studies. Creativity is not predominantly something that can be ‘forced’ through creativity ‘techniques.’ It depends crucially on the setting of an appropriate context for ideas to emerge and their subsequent mobilisation into innovative products and services. When the context is right techniques can play their part in raising the level and type of creativity within organizations.
 Break in Trading may not affect TUPE Abeceder asked Lucy Bond from the employment law team at Davidson Large Solicitors to explain how a break in trading, even a temporary shutdown of the business may not affect the application of TUPE.
 Executive Coaching Abeceder member Elizabeth Ford gives her view of Stuart McAdam's book Executive Coaching.
 What role do solicitors play in disciplinary procedures Abeceder managing director Michael Millward asked the employment law team at Davidson Large Solicitors to explain the rules about the involvement of solicitors in disciplinary procedures.
 A risk based approach to managing employee competence pays dividends The phrase “our people are our greatest asset” can only be the expression of a powerful business culture when business leaders act upon it. The difficulty facing companies is how to use limited resources to greatest effect including the priority and effort given to training and developing people and sustaining the skills acquired. In this article Abeceder associate Paul Richardson outlines an approach to competence and performance management which focuses on those employees whose actions or inactions generate the highest uncontrolled risk.
 Performance Management v Appraisals- What's in a name? In the first of two articles Abeceder Associate Sue Heward looks at the changes taking place in performance planning, assessment and management. Is the emergence of the term Performance Management just a new way of describing the appraisal or is it a fundamentally new process?
 Successful Performance Reviews Abeceder Associate Sue Heward continues her look at performance management and suggests a structure and the skills needed to ensure a performance review is successful for the employee, the manager and the organisation.
