The Impact of Strategy on Leadership

By Vladimir RozovskiyComments Off

Dr. Thomas Marx’s article, “The Impact of Strategy on Leadership”, has been accepted for publication in this summer’s edition of the Journal of Strategy and Management.

This article is a wonderful extension of your conceptual article on leadership and strategy and nicely brings key concepts from both core MBA courses in leadership and strategy.

By Vladimir RozovskiyComments Off

On Wednesday, November 5, 2014, the College of Management proudly hosted a First Wednesday Series presentation on Essentials of preparing, designing and delivering an effective presentation sponsored by the Office of Career Services.

Dr. David Egleston, COM Professor and Dr. Tom Marx, Professor and Director of Center for Leadership and SSCF Program, presented a recipe for a successful and persuasive presentation.

Throughout the course of the presentation, the audience was encouraged to consider the structure, design, physical appearance, language skills and communication techniques necessary to achieve success both at work and in the classroom. At the end of the workshop, in the spirit of theory and practice, small groups put together short presentations to be evaluated by the audience.

“If you are not confident about what you are speaking about – why should anyone believe you?”

Faculty Candidate Visit: Bharat S Rawal Kshatriya – Applications of Split-protocol

By Vladimir RozovskiyComments Off

On Monday, November 10th at 12:00 pm at M336 Dr. Bharat Rawal will be presenting on Applications of Split-protocol.


A protocol is considered to be in-separable entity between two communicating parties. This paper proposes a novel concept that changes the definition of protocols by splitting a protocol into two sub-entities. This proposed architecture performs identical functions as a non-split protocol system and builds a foundation for many innovative ideas that are not envisioned in a non-split protocol system. The split protocol concept and its motivations are presented here. The concept is explored in implementing client server architectures, mini-cluster configurations and migratory servers, Big-Data and DDoS. Attributes such as improvement in server performance, constructing a variety of mini-cluster configurations to serve large workloads, building clusters without using expensive partitioning strategies, achieving simpler migratory servers and enriching client server architectures to accommodate client splitting and achieving inherent reliability in server designs have being found in the split concept. The above novel features are illustrated in this paper by describing architecture, design and implementation of Web server and client applications. In addition, this paper also serves as a single source of knowledge for split protocol concept and its broader impact on future network architectures, designs and implementations.
