Perspectives on Management Capacity Building provides a lively spectrum of views on the problems and prospects of improving the management and performance of municipal governments in the United States. Leading specialists in public administration probe the management needs of local governments and explore ways in which they can improve their capacity to manage. Today, state and local governments are caught in the transition between the expansionism of the post-World War II years and the retrenchment era of the late seventies and eighties. Improved management capacity has emerged as the most effective way for local governments to ride out the economic and political pressures confronting them. This book first investigates the meaning of the term management capacity. It then considers how management needs have changed in the post-war period and how these needs vary among large cities, suburbs, and rural communities. Two of the contributions explore the organizational politics of management improvement while others look at the functional areas of computers and financial management. The book also addresses human resource problems such as labor relations, management development, and training of municipal legislators, and concludes with several viewpoints on federal efforts to improve local management capacity."

Management Accounting is part of the celebrations to mark CIMA’s 90th anniversary in 2009. It looks at the development of cost and management accounting from the founding of the Institute to today. It considers a number of immediate challenges to management accountants and surveys a range of issues and challenges that will likely affect management accounting thought and practice in the future. The authors examine the possibilities for accountants to widen their focus and become more familiar with the enterprise technology determining their organisations’ cost structures and with the effects of multiple production in various locations, such as economies or diseconomies of scale. Such change may require the alteration of traditional cost models used by accountants to become more nuanced. The book suggests how this may be accomplished and highlights the need for management accountants to work as part of management teams throughout the organisation as business partners rather than remain grounded in specialist information provision roles. Alnoor Bhimani is Professor of Management Accounting at the London School of Economics. He is also a Certified Management Accountant as well as an author of 15 books and over 100 articles. Michael Bromwich was CIMA’s Professor of Accounting and Financial Management at the London School of Economics and Political Science (1985 to 2006), now Emeritus. He is a Past President of CIMA (1987/88) and currently serves on CIMA’s Technical Committee. A unique survey of 90 years of CIMA research Analyses the research to determine future challenges for management accounting and business practices Charts the history of management accountancy and business practice over nearly 100 years

Throughout the last several decades, Korean companies have entered the world markets in a wide range of manufacturing industries with great success. How did they achieve this exceptional performance? This book uncovers the secret of their performance through a comprehensive analysis of the Korean management system. It explains to an international audience how it has developed, why it works so well, and what non-Koreans can learn from it. The book analyzes the management of Korean firms from three different perspectives. First, a historical perspective is applied by showing how Tiger Management has emerged and how it has been continuously advanced over the last 50 years. The breathtaking stories of how Korean companies, seemingly coming from nowhere, have challenged their Western and Japanese competitors on the world markets are told. Second, the cornerstones of Tiger Management are analyzed from a functional viewpoint, showing that the success of Korean companies rests on a smart combination of business strategy, leadership, and human resource management practices. Finally, the present and future of Tiger Management is discussed by showing how Korean companies have adapted to changes in their business environment at home and abroad, and what non-Korean companies can learn from their Korean rivals. The book gives an up-to-date analysis of Korean management practices from a global perspective. It identifies the success factors of Korean companies: long term, aggressive and persisting business planning, speed, flexibility, strong leadership, strong teamwork, and high investment into human skills and capabilities. It illustrates how these management practices complement each other and provides non-Korean companies with signposts how they can adopt them.

To get to the bottom of a successful approach to Electronic Resource Management (ERM), Anderson interviewed staff at 11 institutions about their ERM implementations. Among her conclusions, presented in this issue of Library Technology Reports, is that grasping the intricacies of your workflow—analyzing each step to reveal the gaps and problems—at the beginning is crucial to selecting and implementing an ERM. Whether the system will be used to fill a gap, aggregate critical data, or replace a tedious manual process, the best solution for your library depends on factors such as your current software setup, staffing levels, and local support from systems staff. Providing guidance to library technology decision-makers, this report offers coverage of such important topics as:The five major elements of managing electronic resources: knowledge bases, acquisitions, administration and contracts, licensing, and reporting;Vendor systems from EBSCO, Ex Libris, and Innovative Interfaces, as well as three open source (OS) solutions;How ERMs function as a component of the library service platforms of OCLC Worldshare, Ex Libris Alma, Serial Solutions Intota, Kuali OLE, and Innovative Interfaces Sierra

"An insider’s guide to translating the creative techniques of jazz to the business world.” Scott Berkun, author of The Myths of Innovation What Can Your Team Learn From Jazz Musicians? Experienced jazz musicians apply specific principles to collaborate, execute, and manage change in real time--delivering extraordinary innovation in the face of non-stop pressure and risk. Now, jazz musician and collaboration expert Adrian Cho shows how you can use the same principles to dramatically improve any team’s performance. Cho systematically introduces the Jazz Process and demonstrates how it can help cross-functional teams improve teamwork, innovation, and execution. You’ll learn new ways to encourage and integrate strong individual contributions from passionate and committed practitioners, and give them maximum autonomy while making sure your project’s “music” never degenerates into chaotic “noise.” Through multiple case studies, Cho shows you how high-performance teams achieve their success. • Master five core principles of working in teams: use just enough rules, employ top talent, put the team first, build trust and respect, and commit with passion • Establish a realistic framework for effective, continuous execution • Collaborate more effectively with team members, consumers, customers, partners, and suppliers • Master the essentials of team execution: listening for change, leading on demand, acting transparently, and making every contribution count • Reduce the “friction” associated with collaboration--and increase the synergy • Use form, tempo, pulse, and groove to maintain constructive momentum • Learn about the importance of healthy projects and teams • Innovate by exchanging ideas and taking the right measured risks • For every practitioner, leader, and manager interested in getting better results

In this lecture many applications process high volumes of streaming data, among them Internet traffic analysis, financial tickers, and transaction log mining. In general, a data stream is an unbounded data set that is produced incrementally over time, rather than being available in full before its processing begins. In this lecture, we give an overview of recent research in stream processing, ranging from answering simple queries on high-speed streams to loading real-time data feeds into a streaming warehouse for off-line analysis. We will discuss two types of systems for end-to-end stream processing: Data Stream Management Systems (DSMSs) and Streaming Data Warehouses (SDWs). A traditional database management system typically processes a stream of ad-hoc queries over relatively static data. In contrast, a DSMS evaluates static (long-running) queries on streaming data, making a single pass over the data and using limited working memory. In the first part of this lecture, we will discuss research problems in DSMSs, such as continuous query languages, non-blocking query operators that continually react to new data, and continuous query optimization. The second part covers SDWs, which combine the real-time response of a DSMS by loading new data as soon as they arrive with a data warehouse's ability to manage Terabytes of historical data on secondary storage.
