New Word City LLC announces the publication of The Pull of Customers, The Push of Processes, a new eBook by New York Times bestselling author Jim Champy.
Boston, MA, July 26, 2011 - New Word City LLC announces the publication of The Pull of Customers, The Push of Processes, a new eBook by New York Times bestselling author Jim Champy.
From the time the first business opened its doors centuries ago, Champy writes, people have been trying to define the essence of a company. Some have claimed that a business is its bottom line. Others have argued that a company is its customers, or its marketing power, or its products, or its people. Today, what best defines a business, Champy believes, is its processes - all the things a company does to create and sell its goods and services. Here’s how to make the most of yours.
About the Author:
Jim Champy is recognized as the world’s leading authority on the fundamental redesign of business processes, organization, and culture. His bestseller Reengineering the Corporation - A Manifesto for Business Revolution sold more than 3 million copies, and his subsequent books on leadership, change management, and increased growth through counterintuitive thinking have reached wide audiences around the world.
About New Word City:

Queensland based Bracken International Mining (BIM) has secured a EUR 200 million funding package through Chinese based Zigong Commercial Equity Partners Fund SP.
Mullumbimby, NSW, July 26, 2011 - The funding structure is a three year facility that will support BIM once it completes its listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in the coming months and is the first funding deal Zigong has facilitated for an Australian company.
BIM executive chairman, Luke Bracken, says the company has moved up the mining ranks from owner operator of one of the largest sand mines in New South Wales to a major stakeholder in five high grade manganese mines in the West Timor province of Indonesia.
"This funding package is the culmination of 15 years successful operation as a private company and will enable BIM to enter the manganese market amongst others, with a truly aggressive global reach," Mr Bracken says.
"We have confirmed reserves in excess of 200 million tons throughout the five mines and our first year revenues will be generated from selling lump ore direct to steel makers in China through relationships with our New York trading partners.
"Along with the take over as majority owner of the mines BIM also takes ownership of the government license to build and operate our own smelter, enabling us to process its 50 to 68 percent lump ore into end grade silicon and ferrous manganese products for steel manufacturing customers in China and Europe."
BIM will run its mines through its mine management company Redstar Mining
The company is also well advanced in negotiations regarding expansion into thermal coal in Australia and Indonesia and gold mining operations in the United States.
Zigong Commercial Equity Partners Fund SP is as segregated portfolio company of Cayman based Equity Partners Fund SPC.
