Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 279 x 216 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Our national security depends on our ability to share the right information, with the right people, at the right time This information sharing mandate requires sustained and responsible collaboration between Federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, private sector, and foreign partners Over the last few years, we have successfully streamlined policies and processes, overcome cultural barriers, and better integrated information systems to enable information sharing Today s dynamic operating environment, however, challenges us to continue improving information sharing and safeguarding processes and capabilities While innovation has enhanced our ability to share, increased sharing has created the potential for vulnerabilities requiring strengthened safeguarding practices The 2012 National Strategy for Information Sharing and Safeguarding provides guidance for effective development, integration, and implementation of policies, processes, standards, and technologies to promote secure and responsible information sharing Our responses to these challenges must be strategic and grounded in three core principles First, in treating Information as a National Asset, we recognize departments and agencies have achieved an unprecedented ability to gather, store, and use information consistent with their missions and applicable legal authorities; correspondingly they have an obligation to make that information available to sup- port national security missions Second, our approach recognizes Information Sharing and Safeguarding Requires Shared Risk Management. In order to build and sustain the trust required to share with one another, we must work together to identify and collectively reduce risk, rather than avoiding information loss by not sharing at all Third, the core premise Information Informs Decision making underlies all our actions and reminds us better decision making is the purpose of sharing information in the first place The Strategy focuses on achieving five goals: 1. Drive Collective Action through Collaboration and Accountability. We can best reach our shared vision when working together, using governance models that enable mission achievement, adopting common processes where possible to build trust, simplifying the information sharing agreement development process, and supporting efforts through performance management, training, and incentives 2. Improve Information Discovery and Access through Common Standards. Improving discovery and access involves developing clear policies for making information available to approved individuals Secure discovery and access relies on identity, authentication, and authorization controls, data tagging, enterprise-wide data correlation, common information sharing standards, and a rigorous process to certify and validate their use 3. Optimize Mission Effectiveness through Shared Services and Interoperability. Efforts to optimize mission effectiveness include shared services, data and network interoperability, and increased efficiency in acquisition 4. Strengthen Information Safeguarding through Structural Reform, Policy, and Technical Solutions. To foster trust and safeguard our information, policies and coordinating bodies must focus on identifying, preventing, and mitigating insider threats and external intrusions, while departments and agencies work to enhance capabilities for data-level controls, automated monitoring, and cross-classification solutions. 5. Protect Privacy, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties through Consistency and Compliance. Integral to maintaining the public trust is increasing the consistency by which we apply privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties protections across the government, building corresponding safeguards into the development of information sharing operations, and promoting accountability and compliance mechanisms.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Our national security depends on our ability to share the right information, with the right people, at the right time This information sharing mandate requires sustained and responsible collaboration between Federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, private sector, and foreign partners Over the last few years, we have successfully streamlined policies and processes, overcome cultural barriers, and better integrated information systems to enable information sharing Today s dynamic operating environment, however, challenges us to continue improving information sharing and safeguarding processes and capabilities While innovation has enhanced our ability to share, increased sharing has created the potential for vulnerabilities requiring strengthened safeguarding practices The 2012 National Strategy for Information Sharing and Safeguarding provides guidance for effective development, integration, and implementation of policies, processes, standards, and technologies to promote secure and responsible information sharing Our responses to these challenges must be strategic and grounded in three core principles First, in treating Information as a National Asset, we recognize departments and agencies have achieved an unprecedented ability to gather, store, and use information consistent with their missions and applicable legal authorities; correspondingly they have an obligation to make that information available to sup- port national security missions Second, our approach recognizes Information Sharing and Safeguarding Requires Shared Risk Management. In order to build and sustain the trust required to share with one another, we must work together to identify and collectively reduce risk, rather than avoiding information loss by not sharing at all Third, the core premise Information Informs Decision making underlies all our actions and reminds us better decision making is the purpose of sharing information in the first place The Strategy focuses on achieving five goals: 1. Drive Collective Action through Collaboration and Accountability. We can best reach our shared vision when working together, using governance models that enable mission achievement, adopting common processes where possible to build trust, simplifying the information sharing agreement development process, and supporting efforts through performance management, training, and incentives 2. Improve Information Discovery and Access through Common Standards. Improving discovery and access involves developing clear policies for making information available to approved individuals Secure discovery and access relies on identity, authentication, and authorization controls, data tagging, enterprise-wide data correlation, common information sharing standards, and a rigorous process to certify and validate their use 3. Optimize Mission Effectiveness through Shared Services and Interoperability. Efforts to optimize mission effectiveness include shared services, data and network interoperability, and increased efficiency in acquisition 4. Strengthen Information Safeguarding through Structural Reform, Policy, and Technical Solutions. To foster trust and safeguard our information, policies and coordinating bodies must focus on identifying, preventing, and mitigating insider threats and external intrusions, while departments and agencies work to enhance capabilities for data-level controls, automated monitoring, and cross-classification solutions. 5. Protect Privacy, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties through Consistency and Compliance. Integral to maintaining the public trust is increasing the consistency by which we apply privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties protections across the government, building corresponding safeguards into the development of information sharing operations, and promoting accountability and compliance mechanisms.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Foreword by Tom Peters Internationally known management consultants Nicholas Imparato and Oren Harari connect the big picture of our changing civilizations with the specific practical actions that managers have to take to produce results today. All organizations are faced with the same challenge: the need to jump the curve to make significant, discontinuous leaps in their thinking, whether about product, technology, or management style. The alternative to follow current practices all the way to their inevitable decline is unacceptable. The authors show us that it is also unnecessary.Drawing on numerous personal interviews with innovative leaders around the world, as well as research and first-hand observation, Imparato and Harari identify the four strategic imperatives - innovation, intelligence, coherence, and responsibility - that will enable companies to successfully jump the curve and thrive in the emerging epoch. And they show how cutting-edge companies and leaders are translating these imperatives into action.Not since the dawn of the Modern Age some five hundred years ago has civilization undergone the kind of profound, rapid-fire changes we re experiencing today. Even organizations that are adapting, growing and innovating have the gnawing sense that obsolescence is right around the corner. Jumping the Curve offers perspective and guidance for doing business at this unique moment in time. It connects the big picture of our changing world with the practical actions managers must take now to position their organizations for success in a new epoch we can t yet fully see or understand.

Item Description: Robert Oh and Sunit Prakash, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 140 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Strategic Lean Service is a highly readable case study of the groundbreaking use of Lean - conceived and shaped in the manufacturing sector - to transform a global IT service delivery organization. It surveys the course traveled by Baan Customer Service Support (CSS) in the early years of the new millennium, at a point when it faced a number of serious problems. Led by Senior Vice-President Ardin Vlot, Baan CSS analyzed its position with stark honesty and embarked on a campaign of deep, across-the-board transformation in order to establish unprecedented new levels of customer satisfaction. In doing so it also transformed employee engagement levels and work satisfaction, forged improved relationships with its suppliers, and provided a powerful, lifechanging experience for its leaders. Lean was the platform used to drive this transformation. Robert Oh, Vice-President of Baan CSS Asia-Pacific-Japan (APJ), led CSS s global strategic improvement project Operation Breeze utilizing Lean. Sunit Prakash, Director of Operations Baan CSS APJ, was responsible for implementing the benefits of Lean in the APJ region. Together they guide us through the journey CSS undertook between 2000 and 2003, uncovering for us the major aspects of its transformation. At the end of each chapter they summarize key elements. After showing us their vision of the power and scope of Lean, the authors describe the CSS organization s situation at the end of 2000. They then introduce us to its new Lean-based strategy, Up To Excellence, devised to turn around the organization s identified problems. Each of the strategy s five supporting pillars (Planning, Tracking and Reporting; Human Capital Development; Process and Performance Improvement; Supplier Management; and Support Infrastructure, Innovation and Technology) is described in some detail, and we discover how each plays its part in the organization s transformation. The book s last few chapters show us in a variety of ways the remarkable results of the transformation project, headlined by the revolution achieved in customer satisfaction levels. Bottom-up change and new business opportunities opened up by changes the transformation generated are each the subject of a chapter, followed by chapters on the function of leadership and the essential need to transmit vision, inspiration and a strong sense of shared identity if this kind of change process is to succeed. Scattered throughout the book are comments from other members of CSS s management teams. These add weight to the authors accounts and observations, and reinforce the commitment of the whole organization to the transformation strategy. Both authors knew nothing about Lean at the beginning of their CSS transformation journey. But the lessons they learned and the distance they traveled over the ensuing three to four years have profoundly affected the direction of their professional lives. Robert Oh went on to found Eagles Wings, a Lean Six Sigma consulting and training firm based in Singapore, and speaks at conferences and contributes to publications as a Lean Thought Leader ( // Sunit Prakash, now based in New Zealand, has taken the insights and dynamic of Lean with him into a wide range of management and consulting roles with global and specialist niche ICT organizations ( // Strategic Lean Service is not a dry textbook. The passion with which this story is told demonstrates what a profound and longlasting impact CSS s Lean transformation journey made on those involved - in Ardin Vlot s words a fascinating roller coaster ride with a group of people who clearly achieved more than they had ever imagined they could. This book will inspire and equip anyone planning for or involved in the transformation of an organization, especially those with an interest in finding out more about Lean strategies and practices.

Item Description: John Wiley and Sons Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 236 x 162 mm. Brand New Book. When most people think of corporate responsibility, they are focusing on a business s effect on and relationship to stakeholders. A Responsible Business sees stakeholders as full partners and meaningful instruments for the evolution of healthier communities and more successful businesses. - from the Introduction The Responsible Business offers a new and strategic approach to doing business that holistically integrates responsibility into all aspects of an organization, allowing for returns at every level, business and social. This book goes beyond the often well intentioned but limited attempts at sustainability to present a framework that allows organizations to bring responsibility into everything they do and re-imagine success. From innovation, product development, and production processes to business management, strategic planning, and shareholder development, the author shows how being a Responsible Business is a practical skill that can be applied day-to-day at every level of the business. No longer just the role of a department or the job of CSR professionals, successful responsibility and business efforts start at the business level, are then taken to the corporate level, and are finally applied throughout the organization. The Responsible Business outlines a framework for building a responsibility and consciousness infrastructure that applies a living systems view to the business and inspires all of its stakeholders, including shareholders. Throughout the book, illustrated by examples from technology to manufacturing, large and small, public and private, Sanford demonstrates how to make responsibility integral to all aspects of a business as an engine for innovation, profitability, and purpose. Praise for The Responsible Business This is a very significant book. It makes it clear that businesses have a single boss with five interrelated aspects. The stories are among the crispest, most evocative case histories I have seen. The book is for any corporate leader trying to do the impossible: create a business that recreates the world. - Art Kleiner, editor-in-chief, strategy + business, and author, The Age of Heretics Carol Sanford offers us a proven, practical, and systems-based approach that integrates five stakeholder groups into a business system working as an integral whole. Essential reading for leaders wanting a system framework for sustainability and business success! - Otto Scharmer, MIT Sloan senior lecturer; author, Theory U: Leading from the Future as it Emerges; and coauthor, Presence The Responsible Business challenges many assumptions corporate leaders, investment advisors, and sustainability experts have long taken for granted. It provides a road map that can help innovative businesses think about how to be truly transformational. - Sam Ford, Fast Company expert blogger and director, Peppercom The powerful concepts in The Responsible Business have changed the process of sustainable development and how communities truly thrive. Indeed, these proven approaches will be the roadmap to truly achieve the deepest level of living communities. - Bill Reed, founding member of LEED System and coauthor, The Integrative Design Guide to Green Building Critical for re-imagining the future of business. Rarely a day goes by that I do not call on this way of thinking and looking at the world. It is useful for taking on the big business decisions that so many of us face every day. - Chad Holliday, chairman, Bank of America. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780470648681

Item Description: Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. Foreword by Tom PetersInternationally known management consultants Nicholas Imparato and Oren Harari connect the big picture of our changing civilizations with the specific practical actions that managers have to take to produce results today. All organizations are faced with the same challenge: the need to jump the curve to make significant, discontinuous leaps in their thinking, whether about product, technology, or management style. The alternative to follow current practices all the way to their inevitable decline is unacceptable. The authors show us that it is also unnecessary. Drawing on numerous personal interviews with innovative leaders around the world, as well as research and first-hand observation, Imparato and Harari identify the four strategic imperatives--innovation, intelligence, coherence, and responsibility--that will enable companies to successfully jump the curve and thrive in the emerging epoch. And they show how cutting-edge companies and leaders are translating these imperatives into action. Not since the dawn of the Modern Age some five hundred years ago has civilization undergone the kind of profound, rapid-fire changes were experiencing today. Even organizations that are adapting, growing and innovating have the gnawing sense that obsolescence is right around the corner. Jumping the Curve offers perspective and guidance for doing business at this unique moment in time. It connects the big picture of our changing world with the practical actions managers must take now to position their organizations for success in a new epoch we cant yet fully see or understand.
