"Else" means "más:

Somebody else: alguien más.
Anything else: algo más.

Else + 's (genitivo sajón) = else's is joined to anyone and means: de alguien más.

I think I'm not wrong.

@Crotalito: "Bankrupt" significa bancarrota. Aprendí una forma de decir "quebrar", cuando se trata de una empresa, como "to go bankrupt".

Sobre "someone else's progress", irmamar lo explicó ya muy bien.
