Every city, region and state wants to do better---or at the very least, not do worse. Places have a strong and vigorous concern with and stake in generating a stronger economic performance. This concern spans a broad spectrum of constituents and interests, including business, labor, non-profit organizations, government, and private residents. However, such decision makers mandated with the strategic management of their place receive little guidance or insight from scholars in terms of a systematic framework for evaluating how to generate and sustain a competitive advantage for their place. While an entire academic field exists devoted to analyzing how firms and organizations can create and sustain a competitive advantage and ultimately a strong economic performance---the field of strategic management in business schools---no such analogous field exists which is devoted to guiding and informing decision makers mandated and concerned with the strategic management of their place. Everything in Its Place seeks to fill this intellectual void, explaining the underlying economic and social factors and the broad spectrum of policies and instruments that can actually influence and enhance economic performance in places. Several academic fields have generated a number of important theories, empirical findings, and case studies that shed considerable light on identifying and unraveling the underlying forces about what shapes this economic performance. Combined in this book with the actual experiences and instincts garnered from practitioners and policy makers, these insights are integrated together in into a coherent, inclusive framework to guide and inform thought leaders and scholars in the strategic management of places.

The first organizational book inspired by the culinary world, taking mise-en-place outside the kitchen. Every day, chefs across the globe churn out enormous amounts of high-quality work with efficiency using a system called mise-en-place--a French culinary term that means “putting in place” and signifies an entire lifestyle of readiness and engagement. In Work Clean, Dan Charnas reveals how to apply mise-en-place outside the kitchen, in any kind of work. Culled from dozens of interviews with culinary professionals and executives, including world-renowned chefs like Thomas Keller and Alfred Portale, this essential guide offers a simple system to focus your actions and accomplish your work. Charnas spells out the 10 major principles of mise-en-place for chefs and non chefs alike: (1) planning is prime; (2) arranging spaces and perfecting movements; (3) cleaning as you go; (4) making first moves; (5) finishing actions; (6) slowing down to speed up; (7) call and callback; (8) open ears and eyes; (9) inspect and correct; (10) total utilization. This journey into the world of chefs and cooks shows you how each principle works in the kitchen, office, home, and virtually any other setting.

Storage for Stylish Homes

Both practical and stylish, Everything in its Place is a new storage bible that showcases a wide variety of successful storage solutions that certainly don't skimp on style. The days of simply wanting to 'get the look' are over: nowadays, we are more interested in achieving a happy, smooth-running, and contented home life, and it's not purely the aesthetics of our interiors that we're pondering. Key to this more considered (and, some might say, realistic) approach to homemaking is the storage of all life's paraphernalia, from everyday essentials (kitchen equipment, bicycles) to seasonal items (skis and suitcases) and, of course, all those bits and pieces you don't need very often but still want to hang on to (wedding photograph albums, grandma's china). We have more stuff than ever before, so where (and how) should we keep it all? In Everything in its Place, Rebecca Winward demonstrates how our experience of every room in the house can be improved through a clever choice of storage solutions that balance form and function. She also addresses the fact that, while storage is inherently practical, it also holds huge potential for decorative impact. Examining the subject from every possible angle, Rebecca considers what to store where and what best to store it in, before going on to discuss the storage demands of different items (clothes, books, crafting equipment) and even storage by style, from minimalist to vintage to rustic, to name but a few.

Analyzing Radiohead

More than any rock artist since The Beatles, Radiohead's music inhabits the sweet spot between two extremes: on the one hand, music that is wholly conventional and conforms to all expectations of established rock styles, and, on the other hand, music so radically experimental that it thwarts any learned notions. While averting mainstream trends but still achieving a significant level of success in both US and UK charts, Radiohead's music includes many surprises and subverted expectations, yet remains accessible within a framework of music traditions. In Everything in its Right Place: Analyzing Radiohead, Brad Osborn reveals the functioning of this reconciliation of extremes in various aspects of Radiohead's music, analyzing the unexpected shifts in song structure, the deformation of standard 4/4 backbeats, the digital manipulation of familiar rock 'n' roll instrumentation, and the expected resolutions of traditional cadence structures. Expanding on recent work in musical perception, focusing particularly on form, rhythm and meter, timbre, and harmony, Everything in its Right Place treats Radiohead's recordings as rich sonic ecosystems in which a listener participates in an individual search for meaning, bringing along expectations learned from popular music, classical music, or even Radiohead's own compositional idiolect. Radiohead's violations of these subjective expectation-realization chains prompt the listener to search more deeply for meaning within corresponding lyrics, biographical details of the band, or intertextual relationships with music, literature, or film. Synthesizing insights from a range of new methodologies in the theory of pop and rock, and specifically designed for integration into music theory courses for upper level undergraduates, Everything in its Right Place is sure to find wide readership among scholars and students, as well as avid listeners who seek a deeper understanding of Radiohead's distinctive juxtapositional style.

The Silo Effect

Why putting everything in its place isn't such a bright idea
Author: Gillian Tett
Publisher: Hachette UK
ISBN: 0748129014
Category: Business & Economics
Page: 352
View: 506
Ever since civilised society began, we have felt the need to classify, categorise and specialise. It can make things more efficient, and help give the leaders of any organisation a sense of confidence that they have the right people focusing on the right tasks. But it can also be catastrophic, leading to tunnel vision and tribalism. Most importantly it can create a structural fog, with the full picture of where an organisation is heading hidden from view. It is incredibly widespread: the chances are these 'silos' are rife in any organisation or profession, whether your business, or your local school or hospital. Across industries and cultures, as this brilliant and penetrating book shows, silos have the power to collapse companies and destabilise financial markets, yet they still dominate the workplace. They blind and confuse us, often making modern institutions act in risky, silly and damaging ways. Gillian Tett has spent years covering financial markets and business, but she's also a trained anthropologist, having completed a doctorate at Cambridge University and conducted field work in Tibet and Tajikistan. She's no stranger to questioning the assumptions and practices of a culture. Those in question - financial trading desks, urban police forces, surgical teams within medical clinics, software debuggers and consumer product engineers - have practices and rituals as ordered and intricate as those of any far-flung tribe. In The Silo Effect, she uses an anthropological lens to explore how individuals, teams and whole organisations often work in silos of thought, process and product. With examples drawn from a range of fascinating areas - the New York Fire Department and Facebook to the Bank of England and Sony - these narratives illustrate not just how foolishly people can behave when they are mastered by silos but also how the brightest institutions and individuals can master them. The Silo Effect is a sharp, visionary and inspiring work with the insight, prescriptions and power to remove our organisational blinders and transform the way we think for the better.

Spinoza and Life by the Light of Nature
Author: Joseph Almog
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 019931439X
Category: Philosophy
Page: 143
View: 9804
In this work, Joseph Almog develops the unitarian and universalist metaphysics of Spinoza. Spinoza's ground zero thesis is that everything (including God, mathematics, morals, our own thoughts) finds its place within Spinoza's (capital N) Nature. It is the place that each thing occupies within the grid of Nature - from God on down the cosmic tree of being - that determines its fundamental (lowercase n) nature. This leads, as in the Ethics, to a final chapter on what it meant to Spinoza to live in symbiosis with Nature and, therefore, to be one with it - and with God.

Howard Keir was a talented photographer on the fast track from a purely academic life in the confines of a university fine arts studio- to a successful career as an artist for high fashion magazines. Three years later, he is an unknown short order cook at a truck stop outside of Jacksonville, Florida. Howard's days are spent tending to his abusive grandfather or visiting his only remaining friend, Ray. Long nights are manageable in smoke breaks and intimate conversation with Valery, a server struggling to pay tuition, rent and debt. Valery watches Howard's every move, longing to understand his need for absolute control over ultimate chaos. Howard and Valery glimpse something deeper in each other- a vulnerability hidden from their closest friends. When Howard's ex-lover Gloria re-enters his life, the once-great photographer's imagination is ignited- forcing him to relive his past and come to terms with his present. Howard turns to Valery and Ray for support but his quest for the recognition he deserves sends all three of them spiraling towards redemption or ruin. Told in a spare style, Everything In Its Place reveals college students coming of age at the dawn of the millennium- cut adrift in a world where they must carefully balance obligation with unlimited freedom and real world temptations.

Lives grind to a halt when people don't know how to relate to their past. Some believe "the past is nothing" and attempt to suppress the brokenness again and again. Others miss out on renewal and change by making the past more important than their present and future. Neither approach moves people toward healing or hope. Pastor and biblical counselor Stephen Viars introduces a third way to view one's personal history--by exploring the role of the past as God intended. Using Scripture to lead readers forward, Viars provides practical measures to understand the important place "the past" is given in Scripture replace guilt and despair with forgiveness and hope turn failures into stepping stones for growth This motivating, compassionate resource is for anyone ready to review and release the past so that God can transform their behaviors, relationships, and their ability to hope in a future.
