I'm Sorry I Broke Your Company Why Management Consultants Are the Problem, Not the Solution BERRETT-KOEHLER Phelan, Karen

About The Author Karen Phelan is a cofounder of Operating Principals Consulting and writes the Business Realist management blog. A former engineer with degrees from MIT, she spent more than a dozen years as a consultant with Deloitte and Gemini Consulting (now Ernst & Young). She also held senior positions at Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and Iris Software, where she was vice president of consulting and implementation.

Karen Phelan is really sorry--no, she really is. She had the best of intentions and training in business systems, performance management and all the latest theories and best practices. At companies like Deloitte, Pfizer, J&J and countless consulting clients, she did her best do business by the numbers--the only problem is that businesses are run by people, not mathematical formulas. She and other consultants may have "broken" your company, but she's eager to repair the damage and make amends. Luckily, with decades of experience and pure common sense, her book is the perfect antidote to years of management malpractice. Phelan focuses on how management gurus have fouled up the "people side" of companies--balanced scorecards, key performance indicators, process reengineering and dozens of other management fads are reduced to so much snake oil and bunkum under her withering gaze. With a mix of cleared-eyed business analysis, "in the trenches" stories, and hard-won lessons, this book is impossible to put down and impossible to ignore. Phelan covers the gamut of strategy development, HR, metrics, leadership competencies, and just plain managing people. She explains in gory detail why outside consultants are almost always the last people you should ask to improve your business. She also explains why the most important ingredient in business management is often in the shortest supply: empathy. In the tradition of classics like Up the Organization and Managers, Not MBA's, Phelan provides a breath of fresh air. In parting, however, Phelan allows that consultants (like her!) do sometimes have their place--she provides a much-needed playbook that lays out the proper vocation of consulting and tools for managers to proceed with caution.

Anatomy of the Bear Lessons from Wall Street's Four Great Bottoms Napier, Russell

HARRIMAN HOUSE How does one spot the bottom of a bear market? What brings a bear to its end? There are few more important questions to be answered in modern finance. Financial market history is a guide to understanding the future. Looking at the four occasions when US equities were particularly cheap - 1921, 1932, 1949 and 1982 - Russell Napier sets out to answer these questions by analysing every article in the "Wall Street Journal" from either side of the market bottom. In the 70,000 articles he examines, one begins to understand the features which indicate that a great buying opportunity is emerging. By looking at how markets really did work in these bear-market bottoms, rather than theorising how they should work, Napier offers investors a financial field guide to making the best financial provisions for the future. This new edition includes a brand new preface from the author.

Inventors at Work: The Minds and Motivation Behind Modern Inventions

APRESS

Stern, Brett Inventors at Work:The Minds and Motivation Behind Modern Inventions is a collection of interviews with inventors of famous products, innovations, and technologies that have made life easier or even changed the way we live. All of these scientists, engineers, wild-eyed geniuses, and amateur technologists have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of that singular Eureka! moment in their laboratories or garages. Each has altered the modern world as we know it in some significant way. The conversations will show budding tinkerers, professional inventors, educators, and onlookers how the top minds in the field come up with ideas and manage the first steps of inspiration, how they experiment productively, how they "sell" ideas to others and secure funding, how they execute the final product, and how they commercialize and protect their work. All inventors will learn from these conversations, whether they are exploring new chemical compounds in million-dollar labs or perfecting a household gadget or toy in a basement workshop. .

If your site runs slowly, users are going to leave, and the problem only grows as your site gets more popular.Pro JavaScript Performance gives you the tools you need to keep your sites smooth and responsive no matter how many users you have. Best practices are changing or becoming redefined continually because of changes and optimizations at the interpreter level, and differences in system configuration, and network speeds. This is exacerbated by the quickened release schedule that most browsers have adopted. Just as important as following best practices is the ability to measure your own performance, so that you can adjust as times change, and so that you can note the subtle nuances in your own code and define your own best practices by your own observations.
