ICA and Gunnebo renegotiate SafePay agreement
STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Oct. 29, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- In February 2003, ICA AB entered into a two-year agreement with E A Rosengrens AB concerning the purchase of SafePay systems for ICA's Scandinavian supermarket network. Owing to technical problems arising out of the bankruptcy of a supplier, there have been serious delays in deliveries to ICA. Moreover, since the agreement was signed, ICA's organisation has been changed. For example, ICA's retailing activities carried on in association with Statoil have been discontinued, and ownership of the business in the Baltic region has been restructured. The parties have therefore agreed to replace the original purchase agreement with a general agreement.
New Book Says: Develop Beacons, Not Leaders
STILLWATER, Okla., Oct. 28, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- Like the mighty Titanic, Enron and Andersen were built so strong that God Himself could not sink them. But slamming into a giant corporate iceberg, it followed the Titanic down the drain. Taking this into perspective, John Mowen's new book, Beyond Leadership, argues that it is high time America develop beacons and not leaders. It identifies nine fundamental directives of the Beacon, which can be remembered through the acronym GREAT ROCK. It identifies principles not previously recognized by the leadership gurus, such as the importance of accepting responsibility, developing outstanding decision-making skills, and inspiring creativity.
