TMBlog Best of 2006
December 31, 2006
Four months into blogsphere the team has published into diverse categories in which Knowledge Management was the widely viewed and reviewed. Is this a trend? Are we (the enterprise, our readers) serious about KM? Interestingly blogging is a tool that falls into the same category. Initially we wanted to share our learning’s from UP’s Technology Management Center and our professional endevours, with wordpress’ stats i believe that we have achived more than that. We also provided different channels for you to receive the posts. And for MTM aspirants a wiki for their compre review.
With 2007 just ahead of us, we aim to give you more insights and services. In behalf of TeaMBlog, we wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

Obsolete Professions? Passé Practices?
If you can manage financial wealth through the internet, if you can shop cashless in the malls, if you can buy a stick of Marlboro from manang and use your cellphone to pay her through G-cash, then why fake 10-peso coins and get caught? Or why aspire to become a bank employee for life?
If ERP systems can accurately generate accounting […]
Be a good neighbour!
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) takes on several definitions but fundamentally, it refers to business decision-making that is based on ethical values, compliance with legal standards, and solicitude for human dignity, communities, the environment, and other stakeholders of business (Source: Jose Mario B Maximiano, CSR Integration into Core Business: among Selected Firms in the Philippines). CSR […]
What is Technology Management?
Well, since our blog name is TM definition, I would like to define technlogy management as I have learned it from the 1/4 of a decade I spent learning it.
Whenever a friend would ask me what is TM, I usually reply with a nonchalant answer: “similar to MBA but focusing more on how to use […]
PC for $100, Monitor Not Included! Gawang pinoy – by Raffy Mananghaya
I’m not sure if you have read about the notebook that was developed from MIT Lab for $100. It was not designed to be commercialized rather to aid the less fortunate communities in giving affordable access to technology and information. More specifically for the countries in the African continent.
Here comes a PC for $100, about […]
To go ‘open source’ or not
The filing of House Bill 5769, the Free Open Source Software (FOSS) Act of 2006, sponsored by Bayan Muna Representative Teodoro Casiño fueled once again the raging debate on the use of proprietary software versus open source systems. The Bill follows the experience of countries like Brazil, China, Vietnam, and Malaysia which have legislated FOSS […]
I have this wild idea of putting up a central supply of cooked rice in every major food-courts in the metro. Aside from the regular P12-per-cup-sized plain rice, here I could initially offer customers different varieties:
1. Pusô or hanging rice (cooked rice wrapped in heart-shaped coconut leaves) – Bisdaks certainly crave for this.[..]
So what the heck is it? Beats me… but I guess common sense will tell you that other than focusing on management and technology per se, there is surprisingly an element of TM that relates to the environment and community.
It is actually quite sad that learnings in TM have been focused more on the […]
Developing Creativity Part 3
As mentioned in the previous posts, creativity can be developed and there is a process that governs this. Mentioned earlier, there are four phases to this – knowledge accumulation, incubation, “eureka” and the implementation/monitoring part. On a personal note, knowledge accumulation (KA) is the most important of the four, thereby, the focus of this third […]
The Internet. What’s in it for you?
Who hasn’t heard of the internet? Ask me that ten years ago and I would probably be among those who would look at you with a blank face. Its transformation from obsurity into commercial applications has drastically changed the way people communicate, and in no small measure, the way we live.
I started to use the […]
