Cool Flowcharting?

What's a cool way of doing a business flowchart? You know, one that traces the flow of transactions through the various departments of the business? Preferably something that is not too complicated nor requiring a great eye for design.

(Insert pithy investment-related quote here)

My company has been attracted the attention of several larger companies who wish to invest in us in exchange for a position on the board and an equity stake in the company. We're a small, privately held group, and have no clue what this means for us. Obviously, we need to get at attorney involved in this process, but I'm the kind of guy who wants to know what to expect out of deals like this. [more inside]

PG Alternatives for R-rated Business Ethics movies

I have several films assigned for a Business Ethics class that I teach including Thank You for Smoking, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, and Wall Street. They make for good discussion and a change of pace from lots of tough reading. This semester for the first time I have a student who does not watch rated-R movies. I want to accomodate the student. So I'm looking for movies with themes equivalent or similar to these three movies that are rated below R, and preferably PG or G. Any ideas?

You don't know what you've got til you realize you never had it.

I often hear people describing "lost revenue" when they mean "revenue that we expected to earn, but didn't." To me, this is an important distinction: if you never had something, you can't lose it. Is there an alternate term to describe what I'm talking about? "Missed revenue," perhaps?
