Britain's Lost Churches Aurum Press Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

They are dotted around the British Isles, houses of God, that are now lost in time, and forgotten. Left to neglect, renovated for commercial use, or simply demolished completely, with no trace left other than photographs or illustrations to mark their existence. But, at one time or another, they were more than simply bricks and mortar. They represented the glue of life for countless communities, large and small, no matter what faith they professed, nor rich or poor. Just as we rightly celebrate the glorious buildings still thriving - offering succour to dwindling congregations - in books such as Simon Jenkins England's Thousand Best Churches, we should also celebrate the many churches which have been lost through history. Architectural commentator Matthew Hyde travels the length and breadth of the country to seek out and tell the biographies of a wide variety of Churches now lost to history. From buildings erected to workshop God, as well as defy the elements in Orkney; to abbeys destroyed in Henry VIII's dissolution programme; to royal churches were erected in North Wales; to those now sadly submerged under newly built reservoirs in Cumbria and the terrible cost of aerial warfare, which resulted in their total destruction from Hitler's Blitz in World War Two. Complete with archive photography and illustrations mirroring their glorious past, to personal photography from the author of how many look today, shrouded in undergrowth, left as ruins, and some completely gone forever. It is an emotional and poignant tribute to the many buildings that were at one time, the house of God.

A Commonsense Revolution - 2848953667

A Commonsense Revolution Ezekiel Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The ability for three words to communicate so much has been born out through history and unleashed some of the most powerful revolutions the world has seen. A "Common Sense Revolution" by Senator Ben Murray-Bruce is also three words with the potential to fundamentally change the future of a country, but with more in common with the type of peaceful revolution created by Thatcher than Robespierre or Lenin. There have been many times when the words 'a new type of politics' have been uttered only to be a fleeting moment of optimism before everything reverts to type. However there is something remarkably fresh and new about how Ben Murray-Bruce has caught the public's imagination in Africa's most populous nation. He is not the 'common man', to do what he has done is indeed most uncommon, but he has managed to touch a nerve and communicate to the people of Nigeria in a way that has reached out to all irrespective of State or religion. Communication is not just about speeches, oratory prowess or, even in today's world, how well you tweet. It is a two-way street where it as important to listen as well as to speak. The very title of this book is testimony to that as it emerged from a trending hashtag, #commonsenserevolution that was created by the people of Nigeria in response to Ben Murray-Bruce's ongoing narrative on events based on his simple theme of: "I just want to make common sense". Ben Murray-Bruce heard the people and acted. And we can see that in how he addresses each issue where he combines leadership with responsiveness, to create quite a unique and powerful blend of communication. Time and time again he hits the bullseye across the nation, whether it is challenging Ministers to reduce government waste by, for example, not flying First Class or donating his Senatorial Clothing Allowance to impoverished women. These individual actions are not unrelated topical or tactical initiatives but are informed and driven by his very clear belief in the need for the very fabric of Nigerian society to change. At his speech at Silverbird Group's 35th Anniversary he made the case clearly and powerfully that the biggest division in Nigeria is not between North and South or between Muslim and Christian, but between Rich and Poor. With the peaceful transition of power in 2015 the people of Nigeria have seen that their vote can count, but unless they see the benefit that change will count for nothing. Ben Murray's Bruce's current contribution is to hold to account a Government that promised change so that the people's hopes and aspirations are not dashed once more on the rocks of 'politics as usual'. As has already been pointed out, Nigeria recently surpassed South Africa as the continent's largest economy. What is less widely known is that by 2019 it will be more than twice its size and will be one of the world's top 20 economies. Ben Murray-Bruce believes it is Common Sense that the common man should finally share in this prosperity and if not we will see a different type of Revolution that will make what happened in France over 200 years ago look like an amuse bouche. I have been to Nigeria 46 times and have been hugely impressed by the intelligence, ingenuity and exuberance of every Nigerian I meet, but who for so long has been manacled by a corrupt elite and ineffective government. And in Ben Murray-Bruce the people have been impressed by a man who they believe can help free them to realise their potential. Ben Murray-Bruce's vision is to create a Nigeria where every citizen will be judged not from the State they come from but where they are going. Ben

Kevin Barham, Claudia Heimer - ABB Financial Times Prentice Hall

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"If we didn't write this book, we would be dying to see it published. Whenever one reads about ABB in the management literature, there is a 'no questions asked' quality of 'if ABB has done it, why can't you, it must be the right thing to do. This is the way to do it, this is what ABB have done.'"- Claudia Heimer & Kevin Barham There is almost an ABB doctrine that fascinates both scholars and managers. Why is ABB so interesting to managers and gurus alike? Why is it the world's favorite case study? Why is Percy Barnevik possibly 'the most influential manager in the world' (according to the Observer newspaper) In June 1987, Beat Hess, head of the legal department of the world-famous Swiss electro-technical firm BBC Brown Boveri, was about to take his family on a well-earned week's holiday to Italy. He was suddenly told by BBC's chairman Fritz Leutwiler and chief executive Thomas Gasser, to prepare a full draft agreement for the 'unthinkable' - negotiations for a merger with long-time rival ASEA, the Swedish power engineering firm that had been gaining ground on Brown Boveri ever since a new CEO, Percy Barnevik, had taken over in 1980. If it came off, this would be the largest cross-border merger in history. Hess was told to go ahead with his holiday if he wanted to, but that the agreement had to be completed by the first week in July. The handwritten draft with its coffee and suntan lotion stains that Hess brought back from Italy was to be the basis for what has now become a legend of corporate history. ABB has grown to be the leading power engineering company in the world. It doubled its size in six years and is now a $31 billion corporation employing 213,000 people in 50 or more countries, including all the major markets, around the globe. According to the last three years' surveys in the FT, it is Europe's most admired company and Percy Barnevik, Europe's most admired CEO. How do we make sense of what ABB has achieved? Their success, in one of the most fiercely competitive industries in the world, a success which is all the more remarkable for a company which pioneered a new form of global organization. Percy Barnevik has described the paradoxes that ABB has tried to resolve as the simultaneous attempt to be 'global and local, big and small, and radically decentralized with central reporting and control.' In essence, Barnevik and his senior colleagues at ABB have tried to resolve these contradictions by creating what we call a 'globally-connected corporation', a loose-tight network of processes and partners which can only be held together by highly committed people and strongly-held principles. The gurus fell in love with ABB very quickly...Tom Peters calls ABB a 'buckyball organization' and says that Percy Barnevik is the most insistent enemy of bureaucracy that he has ever met. Manfred Kets de Vries has described the challenge of managing ABB as 'making a giant dance', While it may not be a model for every other company, it is certainly an example of what most companies can achieve. ABB The Dancing Giant gives its reader the exciting opportunity to look through the keyhole and hear from some very interesting people around ABB, both in the corporate headquarters and locations world-wide. It will also satisfy their curiosity about the heritage of Percy Barnevik, who has almost come to personify the company. It will look at how the company is doing now that he has passed on the role of CEO to Goran Lindahl. You will be able to look behind his image and public statements and find out what other people in the company think, how they lived the story of the merger, and what life is like for them in the organization. ABB the Dancing Giant has not been written simply for the sake of a fascinating history, which it certainly is, but to ask ourselves what other managers who are faced with the challenges of globalisation can learn from the story. It will : * document the story of the merger and of ABB's growth and global expansion * catch a greater glimpse of the real story behind the company's on-going success * raise some key questions for the future of ABB - how is Goran Lindahl preparing ABB for the next Millennium? * highlight some lessons from ABB's experience for managers in other organizations facing international and global challenges * be a frank look at the good and bad of ABB and what other managers and companies can learn and implement from this story. Authors: Kevin Barham is Director of the Ashridge Center for Management and Organization Learning and a founding partner of the Global Development Partnership. His research has focused on the development of international managers - a topic where ABB itself has much to teach other organizations. Claudia Heimer is Business Director and a member of the management team of Ashridge Consulting, where she has been interested in the cultural, strategic and IT implications of globalisation Outline Contents Part One : The Birth of a Modern Giant The story of the two companies that came to form ABB, ASEA of Sweden, and BBC (Brown Boveri Corporation) of Switzerland. Includes insights into the details of the merger talks, the high emotions involved and the way that Percy Barnevik drove the negotiations to a successful outcome. Part Two : Giant Steps to the Globally-Connected Corporation Looks at ABB's global expansion and looks at ABB through a number of different lenses. Looks at ABB as the 'globally-connected corporation' and sets ABB in the context of the global transitions that more and more firms are having to make to compete in a globalised world. Includes an overview of four of the most important analyses of ABB by leading management gurus. Part Three : Reaping the Harvest The organization a decade after the merger - find out how the masterplan has worked out so far. Looks more closely at why ABB has become the world's favorite case study and at why it is an example of that rare organizational breed, a successful cross-border merger. Postscript : The Future of ABB ABB has successfully completed its first decade of existence and occupies the corporate Mount Olympus together with General Electric and Microsoft, but what does the future hold? How can ABB sustain and build on their success? How will Goran Lindahl shape up now Percy Barnevik has given him control?

London's Secrets SURVIVAL BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

London is one of the world's most exciting cities, but it's also one of the noisiest; a bustling, chaotic, frenetic, over-crowded, manic metropolis of over 8 million people, where it can be difficult to find somewhere to grab a little peace and quiet. Nevertheless, if you know where to look London has a wealth of peaceful places - places to relax, chill out, contemplate, meditate, sit, reflect, browse, read, chat, nap, walk, think, study or even work (if you must) - where the city's volume is muted or even switched off completely. Peaceful Places contains over 200 of the author's and his friends', colleagues' and acquaintances' favourite locations throughout the city, from restful gardens and serene churches to silent libraries and inspiring galleries; intimate hotels to blissful spas and cosy cafes; smart shops and atmospheric markets to appealing restaurants and charming tea rooms; quiet museums and sweeping parks to relaxing walks and friendly pubs - and much more. Moreover, these places haven't just been selected for their quietude but also for their excellence: every entry has something special to offer, be it a warm welcome, excellent food/drink, fascinating history, attractive ambience, glorious scenery or tempting goods for sale. Peace is a relative term, however, and not all places are whisper-quiet all the time; even churches have bell-ringing and organ practice, and many parks host noisy school parties and sports events. You can, of course, expect bookshops, libraries, galleries, museums and spas (and churches and parks!) to be tranquil most of the time, but even cafes, restaurants, pubs and bars can be surprisingly quiet - although you may need to time your visit a little more carefully. With regard to the latter, we have chosen venues with gardens, terraces, panoramic views and cosy corners - places where you can find a bit of personal space and grab some 'me' time along with your refreshments. So whether you're seeking a place to recharge your batteries, rest your head, revive your spirits, restock your larder or refuel your body; somewhere to inspire, soothe or uplift your mood; or you just wish to discover a part of London that's a few steps further off the beaten track, Peaceful Places will steer you in the right direction.
