Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? IBM Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"This is the book for people who never get past page two of a management book-it is as close as the genre comes to being a compulsive page turner. Its main thesis is built on at least three big ideas that are individually persuasive and cumulatively compelling. They naturally fit into an alignment tool that is applied to the range of day-to-day and exceptional challenges all enterprises face, including the Holy Grail of transformational change." -Donald Macrae, general counsel and chief knowledge officer, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, England "Having been in the business of cultural transformation and alignment for many years, I've carefully looked for a thoughtful strategy and an intentional approach to bringing about healthy and thriving cultures. Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? is simply the best-it is the most thoughtful and practical work I've seen in this growing and critical area. This is a must buy!" -Dr. Ron Jenson, Future Achievement International, international author, speaker, and consulting and executive coach "Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? is a superb account of how to manage the 'soft side' of mergers and acquisitions, but it has great value for managing many other new business practices as well, such as Open Innovation. It provides a powerful, practical method to identify conflicts, develop alignment, and achieve effective coordination between two parties that would be tremendously helpful in a variety of collaborative contexts, such as alliances, research partnerships, or joint ventures. Moulton Reger and her colleagues at IBM should be congratulated for a thoughtful, insightful book." -Henry Chesbrough, professor at University of California Berkeley's Haas School of Business, author of Open Innovation "Numbers are neat and clean. Human beings are often messy and complex. If everyone in your organization knew what to do and when, how, where, and-most importantly-why to do it, how would your organizational culture be defined? The authors of Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? have introduced new ways to proactively address culture and, most importantly, tie it to bottom-line benefits." -James H. Amos, Jr., chairman emeritus, MBE/The UPS Store "This book is a must read for leaders hoping to change their organization's culture as well as those attempting to merge firms with uniquely different cultures. Moulton Reger's insights are grounded in theory and real-world experience. In this unique book, culture change is a complex concept broken down into bite-sized pieces and presented in a way that any leadership team can embrace at its own pace." -Merrill J. Oster, author of Vision Driven Leadership, founder Oster Communications, Inc. "Here at last is a business book that takes culture seriously and isn't intimidated by it. The method described can be used with practically any type of business problem in any industry, and the book does an excellent job of drawing on research and theory while keeping the focus practical. The three elements of Outcome Narratives, Right vs. Right, and Business Practices are significant ideas in their own right-each is a unique insight. All three ideas have been around in various guises for several years, but have not been as well crystallized or as focused on complex business problems as they are in this book. The authors' achievement is extraordinary and goes a long way toward making the juicy idea of culture something to be built on and worked with." -Peter Vaill, professor, Antioch University "The Achilles heel for any major organizational change is that organization's culture. In every change, consultants talk about culture, but few provide specific sequential steps designed to actually do anything about it. This book provides such steps, and provides them in ways that makes sense. 'Makes sense' is the key because the steps provided can be easily adapted to virtually any organization, large or small." -George Falldine, Air Force civil servant, Air Force Materiel Command "Sara Moulton Reger is one of the premier organizational design consultants in the country, and this book reflects her in-depth knowledge of and experience with the subject matter. This book is essential reading for those striving to achieve greater results from ongoing change initiatives. Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? contains a broad range of concepts, examples, and specific steps culled from Moulton Reger's direct experience. Such a complete presentation of strategic and tactical advice makes Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? a mandatory addition to every manager's bookshelf." -Steven Bragg, CPA, author of twenty-eight business books, CFO of Premier Data Services "This is a serious book that gives intelligent guidance to anyone who leads an organization and takes creating and managing culture seriously. The section on Outcome Narratives is the best 'how to' on casting a unifying vision that I have seen. If you're a leader and take your role in creating and managing corporate culture seriously, then you should read this book." -Regi Campbell, principal, Seedsower Investments, author of About my Father's Business "I don't read most 'culture change' books-waste of time. This book is different. Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? combines both soft and hard approaches, with a continuous focus on how-to and results. Buy it. But, more importantly, read it." -Jack Grayson, founder and chairman, American Productivity and Quality Center (APQC) "We used Right vs. Right to help integrate an important acquisition-one that brought many differences we needed to carefully leverage to achieve IBM's business objectives. I found it to be a powerful technique for quickly reconciling strategic views of the business model and different operating preferences. Now, a few months later, we have the business results-and employee satisfaction-to prove Right vs. Right works." -Jim Corgel, general manager, Small and Medium Business Services, IBM "Leaders wouldn't think about doing a major project without a plan and a project manager, but how many consider the cultural implications? This book fills a key void because it clarifies the topic of culture so that it is easier to understand, and includes examples for applying the framework to many types of situations, including business-to-business alliances and crossgeography teams." -Cindy Berger, vice president, American Express "There is no question that the biggest hurdle to achieving a successful merger is culture. Market opportunities may be staggering and synergies may seem perfect, but, without a cultural match, odds are the merged company will struggle. Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? can help you avoid the problems. Even if you are not contemplating a merger, Moulton Reger's deep insight provides an excellent management primer and interesting historical perspective. A worthwhile read." -John R. Patrick, author of Net Attitude, president of Attitude LLC "This is an excellent book that provides a pragmatic approach to identifying and alleviating cultural issues created when two groups of people must work together. Effectively blending business cultures is a key requirement for successful outsourcing, and most companies lack the tools necessary to do this. Companies looking to reduce outsourcing risk should follow IBM's Tangible Culture approach." -Lance Travis, vice president, Outsourcing Strategies, AMR Research "This book will help leaders and cultural-change practitioners take a practical, well-architected approach to creating the culture they need to support their strategies. Thanks, IBM, for sharing what you have learned from your own transformation." -Valerie Norton, vice president, Talent Management and Organizational Effectiveness, Merck & Co., Inc. "Based on IBM's own experience with organizational transformation and mergers, this book belongs on the reading list of any executive contemplating major changes to their business." - Peter Richerson, professor, University of California Davis - "Finally, a book that goes beyond just declaring 'it's the culture change' and gets to a real recount of why and how to move on that need. This is a practical approach for senior leaders in large corporations and government to address the most pressing issues in modern business life!" -Kenneth I. Percell, executive director, Warner Robins Air Logistic Center "I like the way the authors move the idea of organization culture from intangible (values) to tangible and practical. They offer that culture can be viewed and changed by examining and discussing what people do. Using the techniques described in Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? will demystify culture clash." -Lynda Aiman-Smith, Ph.D., North Carolina State University "A must read for leaders charged with planning and executing major change initiatives involving a single organization or multiple organizations. The book is original, thoughtful, thorough, and pragmatic. The elements of Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? and their interrelationships that work to drive successful change are particularly beneficial. The authors demonstrate a hands-on grasp of this important subject and the related literature. The material is presented in a concise, easy-to-understand format, with lots of tables, charts, and illustrations to help guide the reader." -Stephen W. Brown, Edward M. Carson chair in services marketing, professor and executive director, Center for Services Leadership, W. P. Carey School of Business, Arizona State University "Many have observed that mergers and acquisitions will fail to achieve their goals without proper attention to human and cultural factors, but few have shown us the way to manage these factors in any meaningful way. This book takes up that challenge and delivers a real solution by identifying business practices as the crucial element of 'culture' that can make or break a merger or acquisition, and by providing a hands-on methodology for managing and aligning differences across cultures." -Marietta Baba, dean of the College of Social Science, professor of Anthropology, Michigan State University "Sara Moulton Reger's application of Business Practices, Right-vs. Right, and Outcome Narratives to business transformation spoke directly to my own business experience. I found the book's comprehensive approach very appealing. It brought together the story of a historic merger; a review of traditional approaches to culture transformation in business organizations; the powerful new techniques of Outcome Narratives, Right vs. Right, and Business Practices Alignment; and useful examples of the way to apply these techniques." -Dwight E. Collins, Ph.D., adjunct professor, Presidio School of Management, sustainable business and supply chain optimization consultant, president, Collins Family Foundation "We know unsuccessful mergers and acquisitions are often the result of underestimating the people and the cultural issues. Derived from experience, here is practical help in improving your chances of being one of the success stories." -David Hope, human resources director, Norwich Union Insurance "This is state-of the-art. This practical approach is extremely useful for anyone involved in integrating two large organizations, especially professional organizations. I found the book Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? fascinating-excellently describing the preparation and process that is required in integrating culturally different organizations." -Fred WI Lachotzki, professor of business policy, Nyenrode University, coauthor of Beyond Control: Managing Strategic Alignment through Corporate Dialogue Nowadays, nearly every business leader recognizes the crucial importance of culture. But, in many organizations, attempts to handle culture issues remain "squishy," unfocused, and unlikely to bring any value or results. Now, IBM's leading experts reveal the way to make culture tangible to everyone involved-and how to effectively deal with a variety of culture challenges. Can Two Rights Make a Wrong? leverages the lessons learned during IBM's $3.5 billion acquisition of PricewaterhouseCoopers Consulting: insight that IBM has crystallized into a powerful methodology for transforming business culture. The authors introduce "Business Practices," an actionable surrogate for "culture" that business people can identify with, gauge, and act upon. Then, one step at a time, you'll learn how to apply IBM's practical culture transformation techniques in your unique environment. You'll discover common patterns that lead to culture clashes so you can resolve or, better yet, prevent them. You'll learn to clarify your expectations so people really "get" it-and do it. You'll gain the way to measure culture change progress in terms everyone can understand and buy into. Whether you're involved with M&As, joint ventures, major transformation, internal restructuring, or any other initiative where culture is important, this book can help you take culture from a worrisome risk to a competitive advantage. *Business Practices: the unseen hand that propels action Uncover what makes your organization unique *Right vs. Right: What to do when good options conflict Understand and manage the source of culture clash *Outcome Narratives: Get to the right place, the right way Clarify your desired future, clear the obstacles, measure progress, and deliver results Successful culture change requires the same discipline you bring to the rest of your business. It demands a strong methodology that helps you clarify your goals and expectations, identify and overcome obstacles, measure progress...and get results. This book delivers that methodology. IBM's powerful, proprietary Tangible Culture approach will help you make culture visible and measurable- so you can replace "feel good" culture work with focused, actionable plans for change. Use IBM's techniques to surface, understand, and reconcile differences among groups that must work together, so you can launch alliances more successfully...drive more value from acquisitions...enhance cross-silo and global operations...choose the right strategies...and make real transformation happen. Whatever your goals, culture is central to your success. With this book, you can finally address culture-systemically, proactively, and effectively.

7 Day Fat Burning Diet Plan W Foulsham & Co Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Most of us, most of the time, wish we could lose a bit of weight. The figures show that in the West virtually 50 per cent of the adult population is actually overweight-and that one in three women and even one in five men is on a diet at any one time. But what kind of diet? Too many people, it is to be feared, are slavishly following faddish systems that make unrealistic demands on the body, whether in terms of nutritional balance or paucity of taste. Further, most extreme low-calorie diets will only produce temporary (and often unhealthy) weight losses due to the fact that your body is retaining less water: start eating normally again and the weight will come right back. It's only common sense that what the weight-conscious majority need is an eating plan that works for life - that doesn't make grandiose claims about shedding 10 pounds in 10 days but provides an appetising menu of culinary variations that gets your body regularly eating the right nutrients in the right amounts - so you head inexorably for your right weight. This book aims to do just that. It's founded on the crucial principle of combining carbohydrates, proteins and fats in the correct proportions so as to maximise the body's fat-burning potential without compromising on good nutrition. After a friendly explanatory introduction, there are over 100 recipes for all occasions, and a 7-day menu to get you started. Reassuringly, many of the dishes here are fat-burning versions of old favourites so you needn't lose all your old culinary friends just because you want to lose weight.

Sandwich Shops, Drive-Ins, and Diners Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Sandwich Shops, Drive-Ins, and Diners: How to Start and Operate Them Successfully In these modern days, when food is sold in hundreds of thousands of eating places throughout our country, it is difficult to imagine a time when lunch-boxes were a part of every worker's equipment; when factory men, laborers, and office help all stopped work and opened little packages to munch the edibles provided by mother or wife. Yet, in 1888, when Max Garfunkel came to America, an immigrant boy of thirteen, restaurants were mainly places for social gatherings, except to the few of wealth who considered it demeaning to carry food and could afford the dollar or two squandered on served luncheons. The only other places in which food could be had, aside from boarding houses, were the saloons which provided magnificent free-lunch counters to entice the drinking public. Max, my father, was born into the farm-hardware business in the old country, and he became hardy from handling the heavy pieces, and shrewd from contact with farmers who bargained with every trade. Precocious enough to help in the business before he was ten years old, stories of the wealth of this Golden Land fired him early with an ambition to come here. So, as he reached his thirteenth birthday, he announced his intention to a startled family, and sailed away with only enough money to permit him to enter. The boy who was to become one of the greatest factors in changing the eating habits of all Americans by introducing a meal at a price which eliminated the need for carrying a lunch-box to work, spent his first night in this country sleeping in an empty open wagon on the New York waterfront not far from where he had been put ashore from Ellis Island.

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife."So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen's perfect comedy of manners--one of the most popular novels of all time--that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues. "Pride and Prejudice seems as vital today as ever, " writes Anna Quindlen in her introduction to this Modern Library edition. "It is a pure joy to read." Eudora Welty agrees: "The gaiety is unextinguished, the irony has kept its bite, the reasoning is still sweet, the sparkle undiminished. [It is] irresistible and as nearly flawless as any fiction could be." This volume is the companion to the BBC television series, a lavish production aired on the Arts and Entertainment Network.The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foun-dation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hard-bound editions of important works of liter-ature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running torchbearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inau-gurating a new program of selecting titles. The ModernLibrary continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices.

Complete Stories of J.G. Ballard W W NORTON & CO

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The American publication of The Complete Stories of J. G. Ballard is a landmark event. Increasingly recognized as one of the greatest and most prophetic novelists, J. G. Ballard was a writer of enormous inventive powers, who, in the words of Malcolm Bradbury, possessed, like Calvino, a remarkable gift for filling the empty deprived spaces of modern life with the invisible cities and the wonder worlds of imagination. Best known for his novels, such as Empire of the Sun and Crash, Ballard rose to fame as the ideal chronicler of disturbed modernity (The Observer). Perhaps less known, though equally brilliant, were his devastatingly original short stories, which span nearly fifty years and reveal an unparalleled prescience so unique that a new word Ballardian had to be invented. Ballard, who wrote that short stories are the loose change in the treasury of fiction, easily ignored beside the wealth of novels available, regretted the fact that the public had increasingly lost its ability to appreciate them. With 98 pulse-quickening stories, this volume helps restore the very art form that Ballard feared was comatose. Ballard s inimitable style was already present in his early stories, most of them published in science fiction magazines. These stories are surreal, richly atmospheric and splendidly elliptical, featuring an assortment of psychotropic houses, time-traveling assassins, and cities without clocks. Over the next fifty years, his fierce imaginative energy propelled him to explore new topics, including the dehumanization of technology, the brutality of the corporation, and nuclear Armageddon. Depicting the human soul as being enervated and corrupted by the modern world (New York Times), Ballard began to examine themes like overpopulation, as in Billenium, a claustrophobic imagining of a world of 20 billion people crammed into four-square-meter rooms, or the false realities of modern media, as in the classic Why I Want to Fuck Ronald Reagan, a faux-psychological study of the sexual and violent reactions elicited by viewing Reagan s face on television, in which Ballard predicted the unholy fusion of pop culture and sound-bite politics thirteen years before Reagan became president. Given Ballard s heightened powers of perception, it is astonishing that the dehumanized world that he apprehended so acutely neither diminished his own febrile imagination nor his engagement with mankind, evident in every story, including two new ones for this American edition. So eerily prophetic is his vision, so commanding are his literary gifts, the import and insight of J. G. Ballard s deeply humanistic and transcendent works can only grow in years to come."

"I dreamt I was standing in the dark, looking up at the south-west tower ... And our Kev was up there on top, in the dark, and screaming as if some wild beast was eating him." When steeplejack Joe Clarke is hired to repair the stonework at Muncaster Cathedral, he is unprepared for the horror he will encounter. Something unspeakably evil in the medieval tower is seeking victims among the young neighborhood boys ... and Joe's son may be next! An unsettling story with a horrifying conclusion, this eerie tale will chill young and old readers alike. Robert Westall (1929-1993) is one of the best modern writers of ghost stories in the tradition of the great M.R. James, and The Stones of Muncaster Cathedral, which won the Dracula Society's Children of the Night Award, is one of his finest. This volume also includes a second ghostly tale, 'Brangwyn Gardens', published here for the first time in the United States, and a new introduction by Orrin Grey. 'So vivid and deft in its mental touches and physical details that it had me sweating with vertigo as well as superstitious terror ... No punches are pulled.' - Daily Telegraph 'Chilly, concise and utterly spooky ... among the late British author's best works ... The tower's secret is indeed a whopper, fittingly capping the unrelenting suspense that precedes its revelation.' - Publishers Weekly 'A taut thriller, with a horrifically dramatic denouement.' - Kirkus Reviews 'This is a chilling tale spun by a master storyteller ... The suspense is gradually unleashed as more and more details are discovered and the ending is both explosive and gratifying ... will leave you with a chill down your spine.' - SFSite.com

Here Comes Everybody Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Clay Shirky's international bestseller "Here Comes Everybody: How Change Happens When People Come Together" explores how the unifying power of the internet is changing the character of human society. Welcome to the new future of involvement. Forming groups is easier than it's ever been: unpaid volunteers build Wikipedia together in their spare time, mistreated customers can join forces to get their revenge on airlines and high street banks, and one man with a laptop can raise an army to help recover a stolen phone. The results of this new world of easy collaboration can be both good (young people defying an oppressive government with a guerrilla ice-cream eating protest) and bad (girls sharing advice for staying dangerously skinny) but it's here and, as Clay Shirky shows, it's affecting...well, everybody. For the first time, we have the tools to make group action truly a reality. And they're going to change our whole world. "As crisply argued and as enlightening a book about the internet as has been written". ("Daily Telegraph"). "As usable as the technology he writes about". ("Independent"). "Clay Shirky's masterpiece ...glittering, brilliant insights that make me think, yes, of course, that's how it all works". (Cory Doctorow, co-editor of "Boing Boing"). "Anyone interested in the vitality and influence of groups of human beings - from knitting circles, to political movements, to multinational corporations - needs to read this book". (Steven Johnson, author of "Everything Bad is Good for You" and "Emergence"). Clay Shirky writes, teaches, and consults on the social and economic effects of the internet. A professor at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program, he has consulted for Nokia, Procter and Gamble, News Corp., the BBC, the US Navy, and Lego. Over the years, his writings have appeared in "The New York Times", the "Wall Street Journal", the "Harvard Business Review", "Wired", and "IEEE Computer".

Virginia Information for the Homeseeker and Investor (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Virginia Information for the Homeseeker and Investor Almost every man born outside the borders of the Old Dominion has found occasion to comment on the enthusiasm with which Virginians discuss their native State. Indeed, the Virginian among strangers is regarded as something more than an enthusiast - he is put down as a rhapsodist. No clime, whatever its charms, can divorce him from his native hearth; his thoughts ever revert to the State of his birth, and, like the Celestial who prays that his ashes may repose in the land of his forefathers, he always turns to the Old Dominion when he feels that his days are being numbered. Regarding the matter from the standpoint of one who has never dwelt in Virginia, this home instinct of her people seems almost incomprehensible, but the fact finds ready explanation among those who have lived in the time-honored Commonwealth. Once a householder establishes his hearthstone in the Old Dominion, the subtle charm of the State holds him enthralled and adds the stranger to the long list of so-called rhapsodists. In days agone it has been said that the people of the State which claims Washington and Lee as her sons arc wont to dwell in the past and to drowse their way through life with memories of what has been. And, surely, if ever this species of lotus-eating were pardonable in any case, it should he in the Virginian, for behind him are three centuries of glorious history. But the charge of inertia has now grown obsolete; today it would fall for want of truth. Time was when it seemed as if Virginia had grown inert and supine, but out of this very inertia was to be born her salvation. Staggering under the wounds inflicted by the war of secession - staggering when other less spirited communities would have fallen never to rise again - she bravely faced the changed conditions and wrought order out of chaos. Surely this was no task for rhapsodises. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
