"Ich habe dieses Buch, mein ultimatives Notizbuch voller nützlicher Werkzeuge, für mich selbst kreiert. Es hat mein Leben verändert und ich hoffe, dir wird es genauso helfen." TIM FERRISS "In den letzten zwei Jahren habe ich beinahe 200 Weltklasse-Performer interviewt. Die Bandbreite der Gäste reicht von Stars (Jamie Foxx, Arnold Schwarzenegger) und Topathleten bis hin zu legendären Kommandanten von Spezialeinheiten und sogar Schwarzmarkt-Biochemikern. Viele meiner Gäste akzeptierten erstmals in ihrer Karriere ein Zwei-bis-drei-Stunden-Interview. Dieses Buch enthält unverzichtbare Tools, Taktiken und Insiderwissen, die anderswo nicht zu finden sind, außerdem neue Tipps von früheren Gästen und Lebensweisheiten neuer Gäste, die du noch nicht kennst." Was das Buch so außergewöhnlich macht, ist der unablässige Fokus auf leicht umsetzbare Details: - Was tun diese Titanen in den ersten 60 Minuten an jedem Morgen? - Wie sieht ihre Trainingsroutine aus und warum? - Welches Buch haben sie am häufigsten an andere Menschen verschenkt? - Was betrachten sie als die größten Zeitverschwender? - Welche Nahrungsergänzungsmittel nehmen sie täglich? "Alles, was du auf diesen Seiten liest, habe ich in meinem Leben bereits auf die eine oder andere Weise angewandt. Ich habe Dutzende der dargestellten Taktiken bei kritischen Verhandlungen, in riskanter Umgebung oder bei großen Deals eingesetzt. Die Lektionen haben mir zu Millionen von Dollar verholfen und mich vor Jahren verschwendeter Bemühungen und Frustration bewahrt." TIM FERRISS

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 669

This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the new tools of public action and the implications they have for public management and policy design. An initial set of chapters describe the different tools and analyze their patterns of use, the management tasks they entail, and the situations for which they are most appropriate. Other chapters provide a general overview and examine the broader issues that this shift in the public-sector role from provider to enabler poses eg. redefinition of public management, the problem of ensuring accountability in third-party relationships, new public and nonprofit management skill requirements, international experience with alternative tools, and the implications of the shift in public-sector role for democratic governance. This volume is a valuable resource for anyone interested in how government functions today and how it seems likely to function in the future.

Those managing organisations are often criticised for being ‘faddish’ in their use of new management ideas or innovations, too easily falling into the trap of adopting the latest new idea or concept because it is ‘flavour of the month’. This research-based report presents an in-depth account and analysis of the adoption and implementation of two popular large-scale managerial innovations in four different organisations. It provides case studies of actual adoption and implementation of the balanced scorecard and programme/project management offices. The study explores the reasons for the adoption of the innovations and how these reasons shape implementation success. The report also provides examples of good practice that practising managers use to improve the implementation of new management practices in their own organisations. • Presents an original research-based study that explores the reasons why organisations adopt new management practices (e.g. balanced scorecard and programme/project management offices) • Links the reasons for adoption with the success of implementation • Provides examples of good practice that can improve the implementation of new management practices in organisations

Charlie Johnson, semi-retired psychiatrist, homeward-bound by train from L.A., encounters Elaine Winters, his lover prior to his elopement 27 years earlier. Now Elaine Fogarty, wealthy and widowed, she lives a few miles from Charlie and his wife Jan in Santa Carlita, California. Elaine is hot to renew the relationship; Charlie is tempted, because Jan, still beautiful at 52, is bored with the marriage, and the two have little to do with each other, sexually or intellectually. But they're just getting by on his limited income, and divorce would be a financial disaster. Over coffee, Elaine is flattering and makes clear her interest in more than talk. Meanwhile at her club—Charlie's not a member—Jan meets Raul Garcia, charming and 10 years her junior who says he's an Ecuadorian import-export consultant, and accepts his invitation to brunch. Charlie, against his better judgment, meets Elaine at her half million dollar apartment; after lunch she confirms his belief that women over 40 are sexiest. But some of her comments are strange; she claims Charlie's destined to be hers and urges him to get rid of Jan. He admits to dissatisfaction with his work, and Elaine assure him he'd never have to work if he threw in his lot with her. On county psychiatric wards, Charlie interviews psychotic patients, and it’s evident society has little defense against certain types of delusional—and dangerous—people. "Fight fire with fire," Charlie advises a nurse. Captivated by Raul, Jan accepts his dinner invitation, and three weeks later, she and Raul spend the weekend together and become lovers, bringing joy and excitement to her life. Meanwhile Charlie's a regular visitor to Elaine's bed. But he's uneasy when she says God communicated to her that it's His will she have Charlie and displays her gun collection and boasts of her marksmanship. He tells Elaine that, much as Jan irks him, he can't bring himself to break with her, but if Jan left him, there'd be no problem. Elaine isn't the chance encounter Charlie thinks she is. She'd hired a detective agency to track him down, then arranged the encounter on the train. Now, to obtain more information on Jan and her lover, Raul, Elaine hires a PI, bi-cultural Jorge Hawkins. He gets the information but also uncovers reason to believe Elaine murdered her husband. And Raul's not a wealthy Ecuadorian. He's Ramon Gomez, former sales rep for a Puerto Rican pharmaceutical firm who, when offered a chance to make half a million by Orlando, a Colombian drug dealer, had persuaded four friends to each kick in $10,000. When Ramon caught his wife in bed with his best friend, he killed them both and absconded with the money. Now, funds low and thinking Jan, a doctor's wife, must have money, he arranged their meeting in hopes of swindling her. When he discovers the truth and Elaine offers him money to seduce Jan away from Charlie, Raul readily agrees. Charlie, "addicted" to Elaine, spends his free time with her, but chooses to ignore her increasingly bizarre statements. She describes her deal with Raul, but says, if he's unsuccessful, she as God's tool must kill Jan to carry out God's command that she have Charlie. Charlie finally admits to himself that Elaine's delusional and dangerous but merely urges her to rely on Raul's charm rather than her guns. She's insistent he break with Jan but grudgingly agrees to wait. Charlie tries to persuade Jan she should get away but can't bring himself to tell her the real reason: she'd be devastated if she learns Raul's true motive. Convinced Charlie wants to pose as a deserted husband and seize their property, Jan refuses to leave. In a restaurant, Raul and Jan are confronted by his former friends—now sworn enemies —who are, at the behest of Orlando, en route to arrange a drug deal in Mexico. Tumult ensues; Raul, pursued by revenge-minded Luis, Miguel, and Carlos, fle

Activating the Tools of Social Media for Innovative Collaboration in the Enterprise

The use of social media tools in the enterprise is expanding rapidly and yet, firms are still unclear about the overall value of this activity and how best to facilitate useful outcomes. The focus of this book is, from a managerial standpoint, the control of information, the extent to which such tools can enhance employee satisfaction and how best to use social media tools to attain specific outcomes including innovative collaboration. As companies turn to IT solutions as substitutes for face-to-face engagements, an understanding of the social dynamics – how employees can best communicate, find and use information and generate motivation through computer-mediated activities is fundamental. Lingering questions relate to the strategic use of these tools; many large companies are using Facebook-like applications due to employee demand, but are not studying outcomes comprehensively or managing processes to create desired outcomes. This book fills this knowledge gap through examining the process and results of a controlled study in two companies, one in the US and the other in China. In each company “wiki challenges” were introduced to employees who were provided guidelines to produce goal-oriented outcomes. The book examine the results in each case and suggest guidelines for firms to achieve “wiki-readiness” to support innovation and co-creation.

Lincoln and the Tools of War

Author: Robert V. Bruce

Publisher: Pickle Partners Publishing

ISBN: 1787204022

Category: History

Page: 356

View: 6071

First published in 1956, this is an account of the arming of the Union forces in the Civil War, and of Lincoln’s part in it. It has never been told in any comprehensive way before, and shows Lincoln in a new and engaging light. Lincoln was determined to win the war, yet his generals seemed unable to give him a victory, so he reasoned that a more efficient weapon would have to be invented. However, his main opponent, General James W. Ripley, who sat in charge of army ordnance, believed the war would be short and didn’t want a vast supply of expensive arms left over. Standardized guns and ammunition made supplying the troops in the field easier. Lincoln was in the thick of it. He wanted mortar boats to help open the upper Mississippi as they had helped Porter take New Orleans. When he discovered a big snafu had delayed production, one J. D. Mills came to Washington with a crude machine gun that was soon christened the coffee-mill gun. Probably the biggest and longest controversy involved muzzle-loading rifles—favoured by Ripley—and breech-loading rifles—the Soldier’s choice, as he could lie down and load a breechloader at least five times as fast as a muzzle-loader. In addition to these and other standard arms, the inventors offered a wide catalogue of innovations: rockets, steam guns, liquid fire, a submarine, explosive bullets, a proposed poison gas, and so on down to the fantastic. This book is a big American story of Washington in wartime, and it will appeal to everybody who ever had any contact with the armed services. For the specialist, it offers quite a quantity of previously unpublished material. Its biggest merit is, however, that it is just plain fascinating reading, the kind of book no one should start late in the evening if he wants any sleep.
