Summary:

Experience may be a leader's best teacher--but there's a hitch. Two people can have identical experiences, but one blossoms while the other is depleted. The same can be said for any pair of fired CEOs, unsuccessful political candidates, or rookie supervisors. In Crucibles of Leadership, Robert J. Thomas concludes that what matters most is what one makes of experience, particularly the traumatic and often unplanned crucible events that challenge one's identity as a leader. What distinguishes leaders who grow through a crucible experience? Their approach to learning. Like accomplished athletes or artists, they practice as strenuously as they perform. And because the line between performance and practice is often hard to discern, they learn how to practice while they perform. But theirs is no ordinary practice. It's a regimen tailored to individual aspirations, motivations, and learning styles--a Personal Learning Strategy. Building on insightful and moving stories told by accomplished leaders, Thomas offers probing self-assessments and innovative tools designed to help you develop your own Personal Learning Strategy. Provocative and original, with examples drawn from business and politics as well as from the inner workings of the Mormon Church and the Hell's Angels, Thomas's book will revolutionize the way you think about leadership and learning.

Summary:

For teachers in higher education who haven’t been able to catch up with developments in teaching and learning, James Davis and Bridget Arend offer an introduction that focuses on seven coherent and proven evidence-based strategies. The underlying rationale is to provide a framework to match teaching goals to distinct ways of learning, based on well-established theories of learning. The authors present approaches that readers can readily and safely experiment with to achieve desired learning outcomes, and build confidence in changing their methods of teaching. Research on learning clearly demonstrates that learning is not one thing, but many. The learning associated with developing a skill is different from the learning associated with understanding and remembering information, which in turn is different from thinking critically and creatively, solving problems, making decisions, or change paradigms in the light of evidence. Differing outcomes involve different ways of learning and teaching strategies. The authors provide the reader with a conceptual approach for selecting appropriate teaching strategies for different types of content, and for achieving specific learning objectives. They demonstrate through examples how a focused and purposeful selection of activities improves student performance, and in the process makes for a more effective and satisfying teaching experience. The core of the book presents a chapter on each of the seven ways of learning. Each chapter offers a full description of the process, illustrates its application with examples from different academic fields and types of institutions, clearly describes the teacher’s facilitation role, and covers assessment and online use. The seven ways of learning are: Behavioral Learning; Cognitive Learning; Learning through Inquiry; Learning with Mental Models; Learning through Groups and Teams; Learning through Virtual Realities; and Experiential Learning. Along the way, the authors provide the reader with a basis for evaluating other approaches to teaching and other learning methodologies so that she or he can confidently go beyond the “seven ways” to adapt or adopt further strategies. This is the ideal companion for teachers who are beginning to explore new ways of teaching, and want to do some serious independent thinking about learning. The book can also be used to prepare graduate students for teaching, and will be welcomed by centers for teaching and learning to help continuing faculty re-examine a particular aspect of their teaching.

Summary:

This authoritative Handbook comprehensively examines the current status and future directions of model-based systems in decision support and their application to sustainable development planning. It begins with a comprehensive review of model-based applications in sustainable development planning, paying particular attention to environmental disaster, ecosystem management, energy, infrastructure development, and agricultural systems, amongst other contemporary issues. Conceptual and policy oriented papers then debate the future directions of model-based sustainable development planning.Taking account of the fact that sustainable development planning is multidimensional by nature, the contributors concede that a single exemplary model does not exist. The aims of the stakeholders, along with preferences and priorities surrounding the planned objectives determine the ways and means of sustainable development planning. A number of tools - from simple intuition based approaches to sophisticated mathematical modelling - are therefore utilized within the Handbook. An important feature of the work is the emphasis on Decision Support Systems (DSS) and Group Decision Support Systems (GDSS) approaches - it is argued that these are natural and appropriate for sustainable development planning.Given the rise in prominence of sustainable development planning in recent years, this Handbook will be invaluable to a wide-ranging audience including NGOs, planners, consultants, policymakers, and academics.

Summary:

The focus of this publication is BPR - Business Process Re-engineering - and the challenges and opportunities it brings to the field of information systems. The key to successful BPR, from an information systems perspective, is perceived to lie in integration. Papers included in the book accordingly consider the following three areas, both individually and in combination: Business Process Re-engineering; Information Systems Opportunities or Challenges; Information Systems Integration.Business Process Re-engineering is the restructuring of organizational processes through the innovative use of information systems and technology (IS/T). The aim is to refit or revamp an organization to survive today's economic downturn and to emerge refreshed and re-vitalized to meet its social obligations and accept its economic challenges into the next century.Information systems opportunities and challenges facing business process re-engineers revolve around integration. It is believed that unidimensional, specialized, segmented and piecemeal approaches have been adopted in IS/T, which do not work. If IS/T is to achieve its full potential for social and economic good, there is little need for holistic, multi-dimensional, comprehensive approaches. IS/T researchers and practitioners should look to integrate their efforts with those of others in at least three ways.Integrating theory and practice will encourage relevant research and more rapid technology transfer. Integrating technical and social aspects will help alleviate those implementation issues that have bedevilled IS/T for decades. Integrating applications and subject matter will result in synergistic, multi-disciplinary approaches and solutions combining the interests of the many specialists involved in the field.The broad-ranging examination of these factors offered by the book highlights the overall need for information systems and technology integration, if active responses to the opportunities and challenges presented by Business Process Re-engineering are to be achieved.

Summary:

IT SHOULDN’T TAKE A CRISIS TO CREATE A LEADER From product defects to environmental disasters—almost every day a new corporate crisis hits the headlines. In the majority of cases the results are disastrous: costly and time-consuming efforts to establish a positive public image can be wiped out in seconds. The inadequate, and often damaging, response of American business to such adversity proves that we don’t need better crisis management—we need crisis leadership. Ian Mitroff offers a new proactive approach that focuses on doing everything humanly possible to prevent crisis before they happen, rather than merely putting the best possible spin on the aftermath. In easy-to-read, accessible language, Mitroff presents the critical, key lessons that will help managers lead the organization through a major crisis. Highlights Focuses on the multitude of factors and forces that you need to consider to implement effective, proactive leadership. Shows how various corporate functions—such as l egal, security, manufacturing, finance, and public affairs—work together to respond to crisis and minimize their occurrence and impact on the organization. Offers a truly integrated and systematic approach based on a combination of models, including a comprehensive look at what happens before, during, and after a crisis. Discusses the extreme importance of Emotional IQ in handling of, responding to, and preparing for any crisis. Reports on the latest findings from new national surveys.

Summary:

This book explains the fundamentals of data modelling and its importance in the development of quality information systems. The text illustrates how data modelling is applied in practice and includes detailed examples to show data structures which are encountered in systems development. Describing the environment in which data modelling is performed, such as administration and CASE, the authors seek to clarify the similarities and differences between traditional data modelling and object-oriented modelling and thus to provide a conceptual framework for the migration from one to the other. A selection of illustrated physical implementations on different DBMSs are provided, and the techniques of behavioural data modelling are demonstrated. This is a higher level, rather than introductory, text aimed at final year students of a business information systems degree and those computer science degrees which address organizational/management aspects of their specialism during the final year.

Summary:

Powerful information technologies and the complex support systems they engender are evolving faster than people’s ability to adjust to them. In the workplace, this leads to troublesome task performance, added stress on users, increased organizational inefficiency, and, in some cases, a heightened risk of wide-scale .disaster. In the marketplace, it makes for consumer dissatisfaction. Clearly, traditional human-computer interaction (HCI) and system design (SD) solutions to this dilemma have proven woefully inadequate. What is needed is a fresh multidisciplinary approach offering a broader, more dynamic framework for assessing needs and designing usable, efficient systems. Taking modeling concepts from engineering, psychology, cognitive science, information science, and computer science, cognitive systems engineering (CSE) provides such a framework. This book is the first comprehensive guide to the emerging new field of CSE. Providing equal parts theory and practice, it is based on the authors’ many years of experience with work systems in a wide range of work domains, including process control, manufacturing, hospitals, and libraries. Throughout, the emphasis is on powerful analytical techniques that enhance the systems designer’s ability to see the "big picture," and to design for all crucial aspects of human-work interaction. Applicable to highly structured technical systems such as process plants, as well as less structured user-driven systems like libraries, these analytical techniques form the basis for the evaluation and design guidelines that make up the bulk of this book. And since the proof is in the pudding, the authors provide a chapter-length case history in which they demonstrate the success of their approach when applied to a full-scale software design project. The project, a retrieval system for public libraries, is described in detail, from field studies to concept validation experiments, and, of course, the empirical evaluation of the system while in use by the library users and personnel. Computer-based information systems are rapidly becoming a fundamental part of the human landscape. How that landscape evolves over the next decade or so, whether it becomes a hostile one or one that generously supports the needs of future generations, is in the hands of all those involved with the study and design of information systems.
