Why chicken wants to be a snack
The Wall Street Journal
Chicken, an American mealtime staple, wants to be a snack. KFC, as part of its goal to get people to thinking of its chicken for more than family meals, spent two years developing the KFC Go Cup, a wide-mouth plastic container that holds bite-size chicken and potato wedges and fits in car cup holders. The Yum Brands Inc. restaurant says the cup checks off what consumers most want from their snacks: Protein, portability, a low price and no utensils needed.

Bloomberg Businessweek

McBooks: McDonald's adds books to its Happy Meals
Bloomberg Businessweek
The Happy Meal just might be the most criticized item on McDonald's menu: For many parents it seems like the gateway drug to the fast-food chain. McDonald's, which, in case you haven't noticed, has an abundance of marketing talent, has been trying hard to counter this image. It has reduced the size of the fries, included apple slices, and is offering low-fat milk. Its most recent effort is especially clever. For two weeks beginning Nov. 1, McDonald's will offer a book with every Happy Meal. Nov. 1 is National Family Literacy Day.

The right mind to negotiate
By Michael J. Berens
Much of a business leader's time is spent in negotiation. Brokering a deal, cutting costs, expanding distribution channels, selling a proposal, hiring talent, managing staff — all require the skill to negotiate with others effectively. Negotiation can be exhilarating; it can also be stressful. For that reason, some leaders relish the opportunity to negotiate, while others dread it. As it turns out, how you feel about negotiating can have a significant impact on the outcome of your negotiations.
