Trump promised during the campaign to reverse many of Obamas executive orders and restore some from the George W. Bush days that Obama scrapped. But even top Republicans have not been able to glean specifics and are likely to find out at the same time the public does. Trump campaigned in broad promises to Make America Great Again, a phrase he ©ed, as well as to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border. Questions about the specifics seldom drew answers; his supporters were willing to project their views and protect their candidate. The fury of an America First agenda powered him to the highest office in the land and is likely to be the gist of Trumps first speech as President. Its up to Trump to chart that course now. There really is no turning back.

3 billion becomes the fastest-growing smartphone market and sales flatten in the U.S. and China. Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook visited the country for the first time in May as he sought government approval for Apple to open its own stores. India has insisted that Apple, like any single-brand retailer, source 30 percent of its components locally, though the country is relaxing those rules so technology companies can operate stores for three years before meeting that requirement. Still, Apple wants more. The company has sent a list of requests ahead of its Jan. 25 meeting with officials from several government departments, including Electronics and Commerce, the person said, asking not to be named because the matter is private. Apple is also asking for a waiver on customs duties for new and used equipment brought into India. The Indian Express newspaper reported Apple wants full exemption from duties on raw materials, components and capital equipment.

My agenda will be based on a simple core principle, putting America first. As part of this plan I've asked my transition team to develop a list of executive actions we can take on day one to restore our laws and bring back our jobs.

So, what are we likely to see in this first 100 days of Donald Trump's presidency? Well, you might hear in the inauguration speech he has written that he is going to pass a number of executive orders within the first few days. Remember, the president does have considerable power under the Constitution to sign into law those measures he deems most important with or without the support of Congress.

Throughout Trump’s career, there has been a consistent management structure: Him at the top, and everyone else in the fray below competing for the attention of a man set to become perhaps the most improvisational, if not impetuous, chief executive in American history. “We have no formal chain of command around here,” Trump proudly advertised to tech titans who gathered at Trump Tower last month. Sam Nunberg, an adviser who laid the groundwork for Trump’s 2016 campaign but was fired soon after the launch, offered a different take: “There is a chain of command. But, at the end of the day, it starts and ends with Donald Trump.” It’s almost become a trope to compare Trumpworld to various reality TV shows, complete with warring factions, shifting alliances and occasional offings of key characters. But Paul Manafort, who led Trump’s campaign part of last summer, said Trump’s division of responsibilities in the West Wing reflects a Trump’s longtime management style.

For a US immigrant yet to earn the right to vote, Avinash Iragavarapu hasnt done too badly for himself this election. Not least because he helped put in office a man who ran on an anti-immigrant ticket. The executive director of the Republican Party in Arizona, 32-year-old Iragavarapu landed in the US just two years ago from India as a tourist. His breathtaking rise in the GOP is one of the most phenomenal and curious success stories in American politics today, arcing a...

The Trump organisation has a hundred people, but he now has nearly a million to look after. He likes to stir things up, that is very different from actual running of government. Is he going to get rid of the Obama executive orders? Can he actually build things? We don't know.

So far the transition is not going as smoothly as it has in previous administrations, maybe because he himself did not entirely expect to win. And because the people around him were not prepared. He only has 29 out of 600 executive positions actually in place so far. well say that he is not fundamentally an organisation guy, he has run businesses, but they are run by his family and he doesn't have a big organisation.

My first 100 days at work My first job was as a marketing executive at Titan. Things were moving at breakneck speed at the time. I had to work on the mandate of finding a new public relations agency, put together a store-opening process and begin work on our summer campaign. I found myself juggling operations and brands, while just a few months ago my biggest concern had been having enough pocket money for college. My worst mistake I was always moving so fast because there was so much to do and so many projects to complete. There was really very little time for regrets or introspection or to specifically look at a mistake as my biggest. The best leadership lesson I learnt The amount of responsibility I was given at my first job was amazing. Very few questions were asked but I was always free to ask for help. This also ensured that there was no concept of hierarchy as there was a belief that good work gets done when great minds come together and not by pulling rank.
