business is poor. To launch a pay-for-performance plan requires effort and timing. Most companies establish a bonus pool to be distributed only after some minimum level of profit is realized. If an organization has historically paid out subjective bonuses, the roll out of a plan causes some distress. There are always employees who will fight the use of incentives. As a general rule, good performers like performance measurement, and poor performers do not. Deploying such a system requires significant managerial courage and discipline. As rolling back salaries is implausible, one approach is to freeze salaries in a given year and incrementally increase the richness of a bonus pool until it reaches a level of contribution that is meaningful (this could take 3-5 years if you are starting from scratch). Over time, an organization can shift from a lack of accountability to one in which goal setting is expected, and the incentive plan is part of the DNA of the company. It is strongly recom...

to appear in print, or are angered by coverage of their rivals. But El Manana's announcement Tuesday was unusual because it was public. The paper did not say who it thought was behind the attack earlier in the day, nor give a possible motive. "We ask for the public's comprehension and wili refrain, for as long as needed, from publishing any information related to the violent disputes our city and other regions of the country are suffering," the paper said in an editorial. Nuevo Laredo, like much of Tamaulipas state, has been the scene of bloody battles between the Zetas drug gang and the Gulf cartel, supported by allies in the Sinaloa cartel. "The company's editorial and administrative board has been forced to make this regrettable decision by circumstances we are all familiar with, and by the lack of adequate conditions for freely exercising professional journalism", according to the El Manana statement. "We will only address the (violent crime) issue through the opinions of profes...

company's television division. A successor has not yet been named by Cox. During her time as the Statesman's publisher, Williams oversaw major changes. They included reorganizing the advertising department, consolidating the copy desk with other Cox papers, the selection of Debbie Hiott as editor to succeed Fred Zipp. Williams also promoted a greater emphasis on digital products and readership surveys. According to the Statesman, Williams said it was an emotional decision to move her family to Austin 18 months ago, but she came to love Austin, its people and the newspaper's employees. "I just want you to know how special this time in my life was," a tearful Williams said. "We're going to miss Austin. We were here too short a time."

Ad dollars not flowing to hyperlocal new sites Tom Grubisich Street Fight Hyperlocal news sites are turning up everywhere, but ad dollars aren't following them nearly as fast. Many news sites gross in "the $100,000 to $150,000 range," some even less, says Gordon Borrell, CEO of Borrell Associates, which recently produced a report on the surge of revenue to the local digital space - showing that dollars are flowing everywhere except to hyperlocal news. "Advertisers don't want to be around local news," Borrell told Street Fight. "The model for local news is probably NPR or PBS where there are member fees and corporate sponsorships" to pay the bill...

We also create promotional videos for our advertisers and offer them the option to gain exposure on the main media company website through an ad placement targeted at visitors from specific neighborhoods." Okay, but does all this produce enough ad revenue to make the TV-created community sites sustainable, I asked Cowan.

The local news site that has garnered tremendous audience growth and respect in the local community (what you might call engagement, but I find it a rather meaningless term) is well positioned to grab revenue opportunities in providing services and online products to local businesses. "The problem is, the chains, such as Patch, can't achieve the necessary local market momentum; the legacy locals can't right their sinking ships with current personnel; and the indie sites, which are doing the best of connecting with their communities, don't have the resources to grow revenue commensurate with the opportunity.

failure to make payment on a $5.5 billion bill due Aug. 1 for pre- funding future retiree health benefits. Congress imposed this pre- funding mandate back in 2006. The Postal Service had hoped Congress would enact comprehensive reform legislation that would stretch out the amortization schedule for these payments, providing the agency with financial breathing room. While the Senate has passed postal legislation (S. 1789), the House of Representatives — taking a different approach to postal reform — was unable to bring its bill (H.R. 2039) forward for a vote before the August congressional recess. The Postal Service has said that it will not make these payments to pre-fund future retiree benefits so that it can use the funds for ongoing mail operations.

questioning Facebook's potency as an ad medium. While General Motors famously acknowledged immediately before the IPO that it was scrapping its $10 million Facebook ad budget, and a Reuters poll found that only one in five users admits to responding to Facebook ads, the skeptics are missing the point. Facebook's success, or lack thereof, will not depend on selling banner advertising, whose pricing and efficacy will necessarily degrade as the supply of page views expands exponentially. Facebook will make its bones, if there are bones to be made, by innovating ways to commercialize the torrents of data it continues to accumulate. Can't imagine what the winning Big Data app will be? Don't feel bad. Facebook might not know, either. But the $4 billion in cash collected at the IPO window equips the company to fund any number of science fair projects and business pilots. Eventually, Facebook — or perhaps someone tinkering in an IBM lab or a dorm room filled with discarded Red Bull cans — w...

platforms: Build the biggest possible audience. This approach, unfortunately, is exactly at odds with the point of Big Data, whose goal is to connect individuals with information specifically tailored to them. The quicker Big Data applications develop, the faster the large but untargetable audiences traditionally delivered by newspapers will become an anachronism, thus limiting their utility to consumers and their value for advertisers. While most publishers aren't equipped to be first movers in Big Data, they should be paying attention — and ready to jump into partnerships that prevent them from being left behind. Alan D.

with the launch of Apple's slightly longer, slightly slimmer iPhone? If you are going to go all out on covering tech products, such as Fortune's five reporters — surely Haswell is by far the more important news story because it will touch the lives of hundreds of millions more people around the world than any iPhone. Intel microprocessors power the server infrastructure of our digital world. Intel's roadmap for its microprocessors determines the shape of the future. That's an extremely powerful position for one company to hold. Yet it seems of little interest to tech reporters. Tech journalism has become tedious product journalism where printing the spec sheets for mass produced consumer products is celebrated as a great story and where there appears to be little understanding of bigger picture stories about how our digital technologies are transforming our industries, cities, and our societies, at a pace and scale that's never been seen in our history. While tech companies, includi...

do with it. It's the applications, the way people are changing, how our societies are being transformed, and the new types of businesses being created that make for far more interesting stories than the technology of a product. A change in the size and weight of a cell phone is a waste of time for tens of thousands of journalists. The future is not about technology, it's about our collective ability to harness what we already have, to prosper and to solve big problems. It's easy to confuse innovation with technology but that's a mistake. Innovation is about creating new types of businesses in which technology is but one piece of a far larger story. For example, the iPhone is considered innovative but it's based on technologies that have been around for many years; top Silicon Valley companies such as Facebook or Twitter didn't require the invention of any new technologies to be called innovative. Tech journalism will change but that change is unlikely to come from reporters trained ...

traditional headline and blurb display if they prefer. Icons drive parts of the navigation. 2. The site creates a horizontal Web experience. A simple graphic arrow moves readers horizontally across "vertical" sections like its well-known Life, Money, Travel and Sports sections. The experience of moving through the sections is smooth and presents just enough information. The seamless flow creates a more continuous reading experience, unlike the abrupt stop and start of headline-driven reading. This design encourages readers to use section fronts as more than a way station between articles. 3. As I scrolled down the homepage or a section front, even a sub- section like the "NFL" coverage, I noticed how the design avoids containerizing content. This makes information easier to absorb and to browse. Instead of a seemingly-infinite scroll that overwhelms my eyes and mind with too much to process, there's a restraint that enables a more relaxed, open reading experience. Instead of feeling...

Two-thirds of newspaper publishers optimistic Reynolds Journalism Institute Despite declining readership and an economy that has battered revenues and forced painful cuts, the publishers of U.S. dailies remain optimistic about the future of newspapers. In the largest survey of its kind, nearly two-thirds of responding publishers expressed optimism about the future of the newspaper industry. Forty percent said they were "somewhat optimistic," while 25 percent identified themselves as "very optimistic." Thirty- one percent were neutral. Only four percent identified themselves as "not optimistic;" no respondent chose "not optimistic at all." The question was asked as part of the RJI Publishers Confidence Index, the first in an annual series of surveys benchmarking opinions of newspaper leaders about the future of the industry and their organizations' ability to adapt to fast-changing market c...

likely to envision a time without a printed edition. Of those publishers who envision a day when their companies will no longer print, 19 percent expect that to happen in less than 10 years; 46 percent estimated it would happen in 10-20 years; 14 percent expect it will not happen for at least 20 years. When asked whether the leadership of their companies has considered eliminating a day of publication, as Advance Publications is doing with its New Orleans newspaper and others, 77 percent said "no." Seventeen percent said "yes," and 5 percent replied they already have. Advance announced in May its plans to reduce the New Orleans Times-Picayune's printing frequency from 7 to 3 days a week, while interviewing for the survey was under way. Interviews were conducted from May through July. The response rate of the survey was 77.6%.
