Critical Success Factors Simplified

Flexibility

Implementing the Powerful Drivers of Dramatic Business Improvement Marvin T. Howell

Flexible Companies for the Uncertain World Gill Eapen Decision Options, LLC, Groton, Connecticut, USA

Sharing crucial tips for developing, measuring, and using Critical Success Factors (CSFs), this book simplifies the identification, measurement, and use of CSFs to successfully implement strategies, manage projects, and improve processes. It provides effective measurement techniques for tracking progress, highlighting problem areas, and facilitating improvements. The first part of this reference covers the background of CSFs, and Rockart’s CSF Method in particular, along with two powerful techniques for identifying external CSFs, and a simple process to generate internal CSFs. The second part addresses specific applications of CSFs, from strategic planning to individual pursuits.

In an information and knowledge-driven environment with high levels of uncertainty, most traditional ideas of structure, system, and strategy are ineffective. This book shows how to create, maintain, and accelerate an organization in a highly uncertain environment using flexibility. It analyzes the organization holistically and details its primary components independently. The author presents an economic framework of decision options to diagnose existing flexibility problems and provides guidance on how to improve flexibility and reduce risk. The text also describes how to design and maintain a high performance organization for the long run in an environment of high uncertainty.

Measuring and Improving Performance

Key Strategies for Business Improvement

Information Technology Applications in Lean Systems

Dimitris N. Chorafas

James William Martin

Consultant for Major Corporations, France & Switzerland

Six Sigma Integration, Inc., Rehoboth, Massachusetts, USA

This book links two key strategies for business improvement: information technology auditing and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. Both require ethical accounting practices, focused auditing activities, a functioning system of internal control, and a close watch by the board’s audit committee and CEO. All of the concepts are reviewed in detail and reinforced with case studies that demonstrate the proper steps needed for complete analysis. Those companies that make good use of the procedures in this book will avoid the lure of easy money that moved Enron and Worldcom from world class organizations to colossal disasters.

As a pioneer in Lean improvement methods, Jim Martin was one of the first to prove that the most successful lean initiatives are those applied not just on the shop floor, but across every facet of an organization. Maximizing on this concept, Martin demonstrates that one of the most effective ways to implement change is to approach it through the one resource that permeates every facet of every modern organization, IT. He shows how the application of lean project management methods to an organization’s IT will reveal more efficient ways to monitor business activity, gather business intelligence, and manage as well as analyze business processes.

Offering fascinating insight into how the financial system works and how the credit crisis arose, this book provides a clearly written, comprehensive account of the current credit crunch that is easily understandable to non-specialists. It explains how the financial system was drawn into the crunch and the issues that need to be addressed to prevent further disasters. The author supplies detailed descriptions on numerous specialist areas, including credit derivatives, structured finance, and the monoline insurance companies. He also explores accounting and financial regulation and discusses the legacy of the Great Depression and other historical events.

This book addresses the key parts of a healthcare system such as facility and staffing structure, the decision making model, the financial model, the design of a universal information system, training/education, and malpractice. It discusses how these challenges are dealt with in twelve other countries, all of which ranked higher than the U.S. by the World Health Organization.

Physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other medical professionals who serve on the boards of private, nonprofit institutions often do so with much more diligence than knowledge. Very little material exists to cover the range of issues that are so vital at a time when health care institutions face patient overloads and budget shortages. Written by leading health care advocates and authorities, this volume provides a readily accessible resource that helps define the functions of a board member and summarizes the problems that they most likely will face including finance and compliance issues, as well as funding and strategic planning.

The position of the medical sector as a growth market is opening new avenues for workers outside the traditional realm of healthcare, such as management engineers, IT professionals, and process improvement specialists. A guide for healthcare market entrants, this book equips new hires with the knowledge needed to navigate the business of medicine. It also provides a much-needed orientation to the broader healthcare work environment for those working in hospitals or as vendors and manufacturers. The author, editor of the American College of Health Executive’s Frontiers in Health Services Management, confronts challenges facing the industry as a whole, including finance, legal, regulatory, and workforce issues.

For over 100 years, academic medical centers (AMCs) have been the bastion of medicine; providing outstanding care, incubating the discoveries that have improved healthcare around the world, and training the next generation of doctors and scientists. Delineating the issues that have lead to the current crisis in AMCs, this book provides a radically different model for achieving success.

Presenting a step-by-step approach to managing projects in science, technology, and engineering, this volume uses the time-tested concepts of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®). The book combines managerial, organizational, and quantitative techniques into a logical sequence of project implementation steps, discussing the management of scope, time, cost, quality, human resources, communications, risk, and procurement. Using a compelling case study that profiles the errors leading to the 1986 Challenger disaster, the book examines how flaws in decision-making, failure to consider all factors, lack of communication, and inappropriate priorities can lead to catastrophe.

Synthesis is the major portion of the system development process occurring between the end of system requirements analysis and specification, and system verification. It includes design of the product to satisfy the requirements in specifications, procurement of parts and materials to be used in the manufacture of the product, and the actual manufacturing process. Highlighting the work of the system engineer during this process, this book discusses integration, optimization, and coordination of program product and process design. It provides unique coverage that partitions all interface into three subsets and covers how to manage and technically integrate each.

Listening to the Voice of the Market How to Increase Market Share and Satisfy Current Customers R. Eric Reidenbach Market Value Solutions, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA

Unusual in its approach, this book focuses on the voice of the market (VOM) instead of the much more limiting voice of the customer (VOC). While the VOC typically refers to what the organization’s customers say, feel, or need, the voice of the market focuses not only on the needs of its customers, but also on those belonging to customers across other organizations in addition to one’s own. By focusing on the VOM, organizations can empower Six Sigma and Lean initiatives with a source of information that expands one’s view of the marketplace, which can be self-fulfilling in its limitation.

This book illustrates how policies and procedures support the efficient running of an organization. It points out how security documents and standards are key elements in the business process, but should never be undertaken to satisfy a perceived audit or security requirement. Instead, policies, standards, and procedures should exist only to support business objectives or mission requirements. They are elements that aid in the execution of management policies. The authors detail how security policies support management directions, and they emphasize how information security must be integrated into all business processes. The book examines Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 policies. Catalog no. AU1958, ISBN: 978-0-8493-1958-7 June 2004, 6-1/8 x 9-1/4, 408 pp. Suggested Price: $93.95 / £59.99

An Introduction to Exotic Option Pricing

Lixin Wu

Peter Walter Buchen

University of Science & Technology, Kowloon, Hong Kong Chapman & Hall/CRC Financial Mathematics Series, 15

University of Sydney, Syndey, Australia Chapman & Hall/CRC Financial Mathematics Series

Containing many results that are new or exist only in recent research articles, this text portrays the theory of interest rate modeling as a three-dimensional object of finance, mathematics, and computation. It introduces all models with financialeconomical justifications, develops options along the martingale approach, and handles option evaluations with precise numerical methods. Taking a top-down approach, the author shows readers how to build and use models. The text includes exercises and real-world examples, along with code, tables, and figures accessible on the author’s website. A solutions manual is available for qualifying instructors.

Emphasizing analytical techniques rather than risk management issues, this book presents an applied mathematics approach to pricing a wide range of standard and exotic options within the Black–Scholes framework. No formula is simply quoted, as is the general approach in this difficult subject area. Instead, the author demystifies the perceived complexities surrounding the field of exotic option pricing by deriving each pricing formula in detail. After a brief derivatives review, he addresses dual-expiry, two-asset rainbow, and barrier options. The book also explains how stochastic volatility models are calibrated to the market.

Until now there were no published analyses of the recent solvency work conducted in Europe, specifically the risk categories proposed by the IAA. Answering the insurance industry’s demand in the wake of the EU Solvency II project, Solvency: Models, Assessment and Regulation provides a concrete summary and review of solvency. Following an introduction to the concept, the first section of the book provides a historical review of solvency. The second section explores the current basis for solvency modeling, and the final section discusses groups and internal modeling as it relates to EU Solvency II.

This accessible guide helps readers build a useful repertoire of mathematical tools in decision making under uncertainty, especially in investment science. It uses real data and statistical procedures, such as hypothesis testing, to show how SD theory is applied in financial situations. The book introduces utility theory for decision making under risk and discusses various research issues, such as how to use empirical data to arrive at decisions and how to conduct statistical tests when the data is coarse. It also explores numerous applications, including financial diversification, evaluating hedge funds, and income inequality.

Statistical and Probabilistic Methods in Actuarial Science

Stochastic Finance A Numeraire Approach

Philip J. Boland

Jan Vecer

University College Dublin, Ireland Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics Series

Columbia University, New York, USA Chapman & Hall/CRC Financial Mathematics Series

Covering many of the diverse methods in applied probability and statistics, this book builds on readers’ existing knowledge of probability and statistics by establishing a solid and thorough understanding of these methods. It also emphasizes the wide variety of practical situations in insurance and actuarial science where these techniques may be used. The applications to general insurance include loss distributions and collective risk models, reserving and experience rating, credibility estimation, and security measures of risk. The book examines generalized linear models, credibility theory, game theory, and simulation techniques and contains numerous worked examples and problems.

Based on quantitative finance courses taught at Columbia University to graduate students and Wall Street professionals, this text presents a novel approach to pricing derivatives contracts using numeraire techniques. Focusing on fundamental finance principles instead of mathematical theory, the author considers the price of an asset as an exchange ratio between goods that pay for each other, rather than expressing prices in currency terms. This approach leads to simple derivations of pricing formulas that are model independent. With illustrative examples, endof-chapter exercises, and key solutions, the text emphasizes that no agent in the economy is able to produce a risk-free profit.

Business students and professionals need the ability to think statistically about how to deal with uncertainty and its effect on decision-making in management and commerce. Traditional statistics texts tend to focus on probability, mathematical detail, and heavy computation, and thus fail to meet the needs of future business managers. Statistical Thinking in Business provides an introductory course in business statistics for those with little mathematical background. This new edition removes the ‘workbook’ approach to make room for more material with greater emphasis on forecasting and time series. A supporting web site provides a wealth of supplemental materials.

Bridging the gap between books with relatively light mathematical content and those with a very rigorous, formal approach to stochastic integration and probabilistic ideas, Stochastic Financial Models provides a sound introduction to mathematical finance. The text shows how concepts, including mean-variance analysis, binomial models, the Black–Scholes model, and the Gaussian randomfield model, are used in financial situations. After discussing portfolio choice, the author focuses on derivative pricing. He covers the general discrete-time model, Brownian motion, stochastic calculus, hitting-time distributions, and pathdependent options.

Becoming Lean

Donald Dinero

Inside Stories of U.S. Manufacturers

The Training Within Industry (TWI) program, developed by the U.S. during World War II, has been used by Toyota for decades. Winner of a 2006 Shingo Prize for Excellent in Manufacturing Research, this book elucidates the history and application of the four modules that comprise TWI. The author explores a crucial piece of a Lean initiative that is often overlooked. He demonstrates how to train employees to perform their tasks as quickly as they are capable with minimal waste, improve their processes using existing resources, solve personnel problems in an analytical, non-emotional manner so that employees stay focused, and develop robust training plans to meet the particular needs of a specific plant.

A Culture of Rapid Improvement

Rethinking Management for Lean Service

Raymond C. Floyd

John Seddon

Suncor, Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Vanguard Consulting, Ltd, UK

Filled with lessons garnered from practical examples, this text is based on Ray Floyd’s 40 years of industrial management experience, including his more than 20 years at Exxon Mobil. He is the winner of a Shingo Prize and also holds the unique distinction of having led businesses from two different industries that were both recognized by IndustryWeek as being among the Best Plants in America. The work identifies and demonstrates the application of the management tasks required to inspire and develop a culture of improvement that actively involves all stakeholders. If you approach the task of improvement with full participation, improvement is not just possible, but inevitable.

Proving that top-down decision making within service-oriented businesses leads to managers who are detached from employees and daily operations, John Seddon demonstrates that decision-making based on purpose-related measures (such as putting customers first and improving services) can help managers reconnect with operations, see waste, and exploit opportunities for improvement. Through case material, this Toyota Production Systems adherent illustrates how systems thinking leads to improved service, revenues, and staff morale. He also posits that the service industry fundamentally differs from manufacturing, and shows how Toyota production principles can be transformed for application in that arena.

Toyota Production System

Shigeo Shingo Translated by Andrew P. Dillon

Beyond Large-Scale Production

The green book that started it all, this is first book on Just In Time Production in English from the engineer’s viewpoint. When Omark Industries bought 500 copies and studied it company-wide, Omark became the U.S. pioneer in JIT. It provides Dr. Shingo’s classic industrial engineering rationale for implementing process-based rather than operational improvements in manufacturing. He explains the basic mechanisms of the Toyota production system, examines production as a functional network of processes and operations, and then discusses the organization-wide mechanism necessary to make JIT possible in any manufacturing plant. He demonstrates new ways to think about profit, inventory, waste, and productivity.

In this classic text, Taiichi Ohno, inventor of the Toyota Production System and Lean manufacturing, shares the genius that sets him apart as one of the most disciplined and creative thinkers of our time. Combining his candid insights with a rigorous analysis of Toyota’s attempts at Lean production, Ohno’s book explains how lean principles can improve any production-oriented endeaver. A historical and philosophical description of JIT and Lean manufacturing, this work a must read for all students of human progress. On a more practical level, it continues to provide inspiration and instruction for those seeking to improve efficiency through the relentless elimination of waste.

The Ultimate Improvement Cycle Maximizing Profits through the Integration of Lean, Six Sigma, and the Theory of Constraints Bob Sproull

Arlington Heights, Illinois, USA

Kennesaw, Georgia, USA

Maybe the greatest challenge facing those implementing lean is how to sustain momentum. While implementation tools are critical, the most essential tool that managers require is confidence. One way to gain that confidence is to experience the stories of others who have survived the same challenges. This volume, the third compilation of articles published in AME’s well-regarded Target magazine, answers that need. While a few of the articles broadly discuss transformation, the vast majority present highly illuminating and often inspirational case studies that show how well-known companies have successfully transformed their culture into ones where prosperity thrives.

This text uniquely integrates lean concepts, Six Sigma, and the Theory of Constraints into a combined business strategy aptly named the Ultimate Improvement Cycle (UIC). Unlike other systems,the UIC is all about economizing resources by focusing improvement efforts on those key leverage points that will prove most optimal, rather than diluting one’s efforts with an expensive acrossthe-board-approach to improvement.The UIC is derived from Bob Sproull’s years of executive experience with the Toyota Production System and consulting work with several high profile companies. He shows you how to take advantage of the cyclical nature of improvement to implement change that is perpetually effective, and his approach does not require more resources than you have on hand.

The A3 report has proven to be a key tool In Toyota’s successful move toward organizational efficiency. The power of the A3 report, however, derives not from the report itself, but rather from the development of the dynamic culture required for the implementation of an A3 system. Winner of a 2009 Shingo Research and Professional Publication Prize, this manual highlights the deep learning and professional development that occurs in the A3 process. The authors show that the report is an especially effective tool when implemented in conjunction with a PDCA-based management philosophy. The book includes some very practical advice on how to write and review A3 reports.

Customers and markets identify needs and companies design products and services to fill those needs. While this relationship may seem straightforward, the development process can often be a root cause for customer dissatisfaction and can lead to substantial waste throughout an enterprise that can be felt for years. Such waste can be avoided by consciously applying Lean thinking and detailed mapping to the development process. In Value Stream Mapping for Lean Development, Drew Locher provides an accessible, enjoyable, how-to guide to value stream mapping that highlights its tremendous impact on product development and accompanying processes.

A Tale of Two Systems Lean and Agile Software Development for Business Leaders Michael K. Levine

5 Pillars of the Visual Workplace Hiroyuki Hirano

Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

JIT Management Laboratory Co., Tokyo, Japan

A Tale of Two Systems: Lean and Agile Software Development for Business Leaders reviews two fictional systems development projects. One project proves to be an abject and expensive failure, while the other succeeds in creating a major new revenue stream and solving important customer needs. Contrasting the methods employed in a traditional, process-centric ‘waterfall’ approach, with a lean and agile-inspired approach, this book provides business leaders with a tangible understanding of why lean thinking is so well-suited to contemporary environments requiring flexibility, speed, and the input of specialized knowledge.

Revered for his pioneering no nonsense approaches, Hiroyuki Hirano introduces his 5S System: Sort, Set In Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain. These steps are designed to improve efficiency, strengthen maintenance, and provide continuous improvement in all facets of a company’s operations. Filled with case studies and training materials, including over forty 5S user forms, this guide is for organizations seeking to move forward through the realization of efficiency. Though simple sounding, the system will prove of great use in teaching a company to mobilize towards positive change. If they cannot implement 5S, there is little hope of integrating large-scale changes such as JIT or re-engineering.

Pinnacle Partners, Inc., Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA

Liquid industries, including reactive chemical factories, petroleum and metal refining, food and bio-pharma production are ones that could make great use of the concepts of Lean. However, Lean manufacturing is not widely used in these industries, largely because they are naturally conservative and thanks to the times, more financially stable than most, so great case stories of successful Lean implementation are rare. This book will be the first to offer details and examples of adapting Lean manufacturing to liquid industries. It will be based on more than 20 years of industry experience from the legendary Raymond Floyd, one of the first to successfully practice Lean in the chemical industry.

While other books focus on either production process Value Stream Mapping (VSM) or transactional process mapping, this work meets the needs of manufacturers and service sector organizations by detailing both. It teaches readers what techniques are commonly applicable, and also explains areas of difference, so that mappers will be able to adapt to whatever situations arise. Extending the lessons originally put forward in Value Stream Management for the Lean Office, this work goes beyond theory. Among other practical considerations, it expands the concept of availability, discussing employees as well as equipment availability in transactional processes.

Mistake-Proofing for Operators The ZQC System

Low Volume Lean, Stockton, California, USA

The Productivity Press Development Team

Toyota’s methods have rendered remarkable results in high-volume plants, but they have not been fully understood and correctly applied in high-mix, lowvolume environments. While Lean principles apply in such an environment, implementation methods and tools must be adapted and alternate methods embraced. Written by Greg Lane, one of the few individuals certified as a Toyota Production System Key Person, this book is specifically geared for manufacturers that have hundreds to thousands of active part numbers with few or no ongoing forecasted volumes, and for shops that build to order. It focuses on eliminating non-value-added activities and instituting improvements on repetitive jobs.

Since it is human nature to make mistakes, the Zero Quality Control System (ZQC) does not blame people for errors, but instead keeps errors from becoming defects by monitoring processing conditions at the source. In this breakthrough approach, mistake-proofing devices called poka-yoke are used to check and give feedback about each product or operation in the process, not just a sample. Winner of a Shingo Prize for Excellence in Manufacturing, Mistake-Proofing for Operators introduces operators and assembly workers to the basic methodology of ZQC in an easy-to-read format that covers all aspects of this important manufacturing improvement strategy.

A compendium of the best methods for reducing complexity, variation, confusion, and the other root causes of defects, this book delineates a classification system that focuses on preventing rather than detecting defects. Even more importantly, Hinckley’s mistake-proofing documentation forms help readers adapt this methodology to their own defect prevention efforts. Make No Mistake! is an amazing compilation of mistake-proofing tools that is encyclopedic in scope. Because mistake-proofing is a skill that improves through familiarity with previous solutions, Hinckley’s new classification systems is the key to rapidly finding outstanding solutions to current problems on the shop floor.

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a crucial measure in TPM that reports on how well equipment is running. It combines three elements, the time the machine is actually running, the quantity of products the machine is turning out, and the quantity of good output, into a single combined score. Directly addressing those who are best positioned to track and improve the effectiveness of equipment, OEE for Operators defines basic concepts and then provides a systematic explanation of how OEE should be applied to maximize a piece of equipment’s productivity and recognize when its efficiency is being compromised.

TPM in Process Industries

Waterford, Michigan, USA

Tokutaro Suzuki

While FMEA has helped many companies improve quality by teaching them how to avoid what can go wrong, it doesn’t show how to make things go right. That is what Success Every Time (SET) does. Developed by renowned manufacturing visionary John Casey, SET defines a logic stream for engineers to strategically incorporate no-cost or low-cost error-proofing devices to help production operators. The operators interface with their parts and tools in such a way that either the product is made correctly, or the product/process is stopped. Operators can make only good parts—nothing else. Proper implementation drives higher first time yield, while improving customer satisfaction and profits.

TPM in Process lndustries brings together top consultants from the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance to modify the original TPM Development Program. In this volume, they demonstrate how to analyze process environments and equipment issues including process loss structure and calculation, autonomous maintenance, equipment and process improvement, and quality maintenance. For all organizations managing large equipment, facing low operator/machine ratios, or implementing extensive improvement, this text is an invaluable resource.

While value stream mapping is now accepted as a tool for identifying waste, future state mapping presents greater challenges. Achieving the full implementation pictured in an enhanced future state map is far more complex than its development. Hoshin Kanri can help. This method encourages employees to incorporate performance metrics to reach the root cause of problems before searching for solutions and teaches them how to promote the achievement of sustainable implementation. Though developed in Japan, this technique is based on Deming’s classic PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) improvement cycle. Catalog no.

The Nuts and Bolts of Delivering Materials and Goods

Supply Chain Management / Logistics 68

Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Series: Industrial Innovation

Michel Baudin

Classical inventory management focuses on cost minimization as a performance measure, where many cost parameters are difficult to estimate and inventory system costs are hidden. Constantly changing in response to international competition and new technology, inventory management requires a new family of performance measures that represent situations more realistically. Establishing the foundation for new areas of research, Inventory Management: Non-Classical Views focuses on the need to design inventory systems that serve as a means of flexibility, to develop performance measures other than cost to control inventory, and to view inventory as a contributor to customer value creation.

Defining best post production processes for finished goods, respected consultant Michel Baudin teaches business operators how to maintain supply that meets demand, as well as the ability to organize and deliver that supply. Applying his well known nuts and bolts approach, Baudin addresses the physical infrastructure of lean logistics and the flow of information that serves as its nervous system. He demonstrates how to avoid shortages while maintaining low inventories, and explains how to take advantage of the increased flexibility generated through lean manufacturing. He also offers innovative approaches to supplier relations and efficient ways to deliver parts to assemblers.

Tyson Macaulay

Written to assist companies moving to the use of a global sourcing model for parts and materials procurement, this text addresses the issues of product and service flow disruptions. Unlike previous treatments, it goes beyond an overview of risk to provide and explain an exhaustive list of potential supply chain disruptions. Offering guidance on redesigning supply chains for better resiliency, this book is a complete guide for navigating the complexities inherent in the execution and management of global logistics and sourcing, supplier development and materials management. The book includes multi-industry case studies of supply chain disruptions from major corporations, including Target, GlaxoSmithKline, the Home Depot, and IBM.

Critical Infrastructure (CI) is a little understood topic, which seems to generate more fear than rational discussion. CIs are considered fundamental to the functioning of modern economies. Moving beyond definitions, this volume looks at the iron triangle within CI: power, telecom, and finance. It introduces the concept of CIs as industrial and enterprise risk conductors, highlighting the fact that a CI failure can propagate an impact throughout an enterprise. This text rethinks the concept of a CI according to contemporary factors, providing guidance for mitigating risk within the framework of national economies.

After exploring the origin and nature of terrorism, the book goes on to examine bioterrorism and agricultural, nuclear, chemical, and cyberterrorism.

Through in-depth and exceptionally thoughtful interviews with highly placed police leaders and administrators, this text presents cross-cultural perspectives on the organizational structure, leadership, functions, public projects, training, culture, and societal context of police worldwide. Connecting theory to practice, this impressive group addresses fundamental contextual changes that are adding layers of complexity to their work, and in examining current trends, discusses the future role of police in a world in which policing issues transcend national borders.

Much of the published work on Disaster Response has focused on specific disasters with the focus on what went wrong. Taking a new approach, this book explores using transformation leadership principles to transform people and organizations, redefining the way organizations approach disaster preparation and response, and as a consequence, change the mission of the organizations to be collaborative rather than competitive. Rather than focus on replacing people and/ or centralizing responsibility, Lester takes readers through a step-by-step process of how collaboration can be achieved.

This volume describes the dangerous practices that are commonly applied in the development and management of government contracts and provides advice that can help government officials keep from making the sort of errors that might compromise their ability to protect the public interest. It covers present-day scenarios that regularly lead public servants and government committees to manage contracts with tools that are less than optimal and to select contractors that may not be the best qualified, but always offers alternative approaches to supplant the imperfect methodologies. Quality contracts discovered while researching this text have been made into templates for the readers.

Despite the US government spending about 15 to 20 percent of the GDP on contracts, public procurement remains an underdeveloped area of research. Focusing on the managerial, economic, political, and legal aspects, the International Handbook of Public Procurement presents a conceptual framework along with illustrative case studies to describe each phase of the public procurement process in detail. This book discusses public procurement reform, a process emphasized by the World Bank and the United Nations, and addresses specific topics such as e-procurement. Samples of RFBs, RFPs and contracts are also included in the text to demonstrate how to write specifications that avoid contract disputes.

Focused on two key topics regarding policing in the 21st century, this volume brings together highly insightful essays from world class scholars on developments in contemporary community policing in advanced industrial societies, and peacekeeping in weak and failing states. It emphasizes the increasing cultural and political context in which modern police work is performed, and offers perspectives that reach across the globe to include China, South Africa, Cambodia, Canada, and Australia, among others. It also looks at the increasing relationship between police organizations and other institutions, both local and international.

Recent outbreaks of worldwide calamities such as famine and natural disasters has turned international attention upon disease detection, prevention, and treatment. Serving an unmet need in the marketplace, this text highlights mounting evidence of the relationship between human capital and socioeconomic development and poses management strategies from international and interdisciplinary sources. Scholars and practitioners in the health and sustainable development fields address such issues as healthcare and education, funding for healthcare services, and the impact of legal and political policies on healthcare needs.

As the growth of the world’s population continues, the urbanization of natural lands is inevitable, but that development needs to be accomplished in harmony with nature. This book analyzes naturbanization as it is occurring in national parks along the European Union borders that have been opened to development. Consequently, these areas are serving as models for creating processes that will satisfy both developers and environmentalists. It discusses the search and selection of new residential spaces, economic planning and policy in such areas, environmentally sensitive construction, and public investment in infrastructure to make the areas more accessible and habitable.

Consultant, Corvallis, Oregon, USA Series: Social Environmental Sustainability, 2

Robert M. Bohm

An exploration of the human-related aspects of sustainable development, this book emphasizes the need to move away from an unwanted circumstance by being systemic in our thinking instead of symptomatic. In other words, we must stop treating symptoms without dealing with the cause. The authors argue that we cannot move away from an unwanted, negative circumstance, unless we can move toward a desired, positive outcome. Revealing the multidimensional nature of sustainable development, the text summarizes positive approaches and presents strong theoretical and historical pieces along with salient case examples that illustrate the desired outcome of each model or framework discussed.

In this book, editor Robert Bohm calls upon experts to address legal, empirical, political, and philosophical aspects of capital punishment. The first of two sections focuses on miscarriages of justice, including errors in conviction and possible remedies. It reviews potential causes of wrongful conviction, considers the responsibility of the state for reintegration of the wrongfully convicted, and debates the humanity of lethal injections. The next section considers the first amendment and governmental accountability, reveals the phenomenon of consensual executions as assisted suicide, and evaluates the curious dichotomy in logic between the reviled practice of lynching and government-sanctioned executions.

While collaboration may seem to be about common sense, failure to achieve it will doom any project to failure and should never be taken for granted. This is one conclusion that readers will realize through analysis of the various case studies presented in this volume. Another is that collaboration must coincide with strategy or the costs will outweigh the opportunities. Demonstrating both effective and ineffective means of collaboration, this text proves to readers that good collaboration is rarely an accident; that it requires a conceptual framework, recruitment of participants, active leadership, communication, and the sharing of investment and risk, as well as reward and accountability.

Environmental Science and Engineering

It’s no coincidence that many of the issues in today’s headlines read like a list of CRC new releases… from five or even ten years ago. Just as it’s never been a coincidence that the fields of inquiry our authors pursue today often bear the greatest fruit tomorrow. Whether its advancing agriculture yield, improving infrastructure, developing clean and green alternatives, retrofitting industry, reorganizing healthcare, securing our homeland, streamlining public administration, or defining just who we are and where we are going, CRC has the resources and references to turn students into professionals and leaders, researchers into innovators and pioneers. In the classroom, in the laboratory, and out in the field, wherever challenges are being met by research, ingenuity, and determination, you will find those who create and rely on the authoritative content that is the power of CRC Press.
