    Don’t Be Evil: An Analysis of Google

    Google is the overwhelming market leader when it comes to search engines. However, there are two IT companies with a higher growth rate than Google. Baidu and Yandex reported a humble $2.3B and $622.2M, respectively, in revenue for 2011, merely a grain of sand to Googles $37.9B of revenue in the same year. Still, it is noteworthy that Baidu grew 85% year over year, Yandex achieved 65% growth, while Google achieved just 44% in international growth.

    This ebook examines the financials and competitive environment that Google has endured to move from a noun to a verb signifying “to search”.

    Adventures in Project Management: Denver International Airport

    Denver International Airport was the first new airport in the United States for decades. It took four years and close to $1B, one of the largest projects in history. In 1985 the city of Denver set out to construct a new state of the art airport that would allow them to be an air transportation hub with:

    • Capacity to handle over 50 million passengers annually.
    • Goal of a 30 min TAT
    • The critical system was the baggage handling system.
    • Moving from each airlines owning their own baggage handling system towards  a single system
    • Designed to support 60k bags per hour, averaging 8-10 min from aircraft to carousel.

    This analysis of the mega-project reviews the disciplines of initiating, planning and executing the work of the team to achieve their specific goals.
