    Perspectives On Parental Alienation, Child Custody And Dispute Resolution Systems Perspectives on Parental Alienation, Child Custody and Dispute Resolution Systems Contested child custody provides many challenges for alternate dispute resolution.

Many experts in family law - both from the legal and mental health arenas - have observed an increase in deceptive and manipulative tactics used by divorcing couples. This paper looks at P ...

  • Supply Chain Management Developments - 2,355 words
    Supply Chain Management Developments Introduction Supply chain management is emerging as one of the decade's most powerful business practices. It is transforming the way manufactures operate and work with partners even the way they think about business. Why all the sudden interest? Mere observation of industrial practice brings to light a simple truth; very few materials remain in the constant ownership of one person, persons or company from their source to the time they are sold to the end customer. Almost invariably, material flows through a series of 'players' whose role may be to transform (manufacturing plants), store (warehouses) or move (distributors) material. This results in the es ...
