The fastest, easiest way to shift culture toward engagement and productivity. Change Your Space, Change Your Culture is a guide to transforming business by rethinking the workplace. Written by a team of trail-blazing leaders, this audiobook reveals the secrets of companies that discovered the power of culture and space. This insightful guide reveals what companies lose by viewing office space as something to manage or minimize. With practical tips and implementation details, the book helps the reader see that the workspace is, in fact, a crucial driver of productivity and morale. Change Your Space, Change Your Culture was born out of recent studies that expose truly outrageous "Oh, my God" realities: More than 70 percent of the workforce either hates their job or they are just going through the motions. Half of all office space is wasted. Those shattering facts exist because office space is generally regarded as "overhead" or "sunk cost". Most buildings today clearly communicate the low priority placed on people-friendly design. Poor workforce engagement is baked into the culture. This book provides guidance on turning this around, by rethinking and reshaping space to align with the way people work. Specifically, this book moves from the high-altitude view down to the details on how to: Discover the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to shift culture Add square footage by using space more effectively Boost employee engagement and vitality by the creative use of space Learn how space can become a powerful productivity tool We all know that design, space, and flow have a powerful effect on the human psyche. Our homes, museums, sports arenas, places of worship, and even airport terminals reveal that. Environment can inspire dread or enthusiasm, distraction or focus, collaboration or isolation. That's why the office must be designed to inspire the desired culture and workflow. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Graham Halstead.

Peak Performance: How Denver’s Peak Academy Is ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When Denver Mayor Michael Hancock took office in 2011, he inherited an $80 million budget shortfall and a government workforce that had been through multiple rounds of cuts and furloughs. Morale was low. He needed a way to drive greater efficiency, cost saving, and improved performance - and he had to do it in-house, on a shoe-string budget. Enter Peak Academy, the coaching and innovation program Mayor Hancock created to teach frontline city employees how to tackle small problems and deliver big results. In four years, Peak Academy trained 5,000 government staff in the fundamentals of lean manufacturing and other process management techniques. More than 2,000 employee-driven innovations later, the program had saved Denver an estimated $15 million. Word got out, and dozens of other governments sent their staffs to Denver or hired Peak Academy to bring the training to them. In this fun, easy-to-follow guide, Peak Academy director Brian Elms and governing staff writer J. B. Wogan deliver the basics for the rest of us, with a surprisingly frank discussion about how hard it was to get the program off the ground. Experience a thoughtful exploration of both the challenges faced and the reasons why Peak ultimately succeeded. Get a clear overview of Peak Academy training methods and tools (including yes, all those yellow stickies). See concrete examples of employee-driven innovations - many of which sound, in hindsight, like $40,000 no-brainers, until you realize there are hundreds of similar and much-needed fixes in every workplace. Peak Performance is an audiobook that will help public sector leaders replicate the Peak model. It's an audiobook for government managers to listen to and talk about with their teams. But most importantly, it's an audiobook for anyone working in government at any level - about the power of good ideas to improve the way government works. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Elms.

The Development of Youth Entrepreneurship in Ba...

Young people aged 18 to 35 constitute one-third of the total population of Bangladesh and youth unemployment has significant negative consequences for society and the national economy. The Department of Youth Development (DYD) has been given the responsibility for transforming the youth into a productive workforce in Bangladesh. From its inception, DYD has trained up 3.2 million young people of which about 1.8 million are now self employed. This study finds that the growth of youth entrepreneurship in the DYD supported Programme is being inhibited by factors like inadequate financing, collateral burden, low managerial and technical skills, high cost of raw materials and production machineries, natural catastrophe, turmoil political and legal system, lack of infrastructural facilities and utility services, social and cultural barriers and low stability of the youth. Despite the negative factors, some positive factors like life skill training, the encouragement of trade, low interest rates, grace period and less time expenses in getting credit are acting positively to boost up entrepreneurship under the concerned programme.

Small Satellites and Their Regulation
53,45 € *

Since the launch of UoSat-1 of the University of Surrey (United Kingdom) in 1981, small satellites proved regularly to be useful, beneficial, and cost-effective tools. Typical tasks cover education and workforce development, technology demonstration, verification and validation, scientific and engineering research as well as commercial applications. Today the launch masses range over almost three orders of magnitude starting at less than a kilogram up to a few hundred kilograms, with budgets of less than US$ 100.00 and up to millions within very short timeframes of sometimes less than two years. Therefore each category of small satellites provides specific challenges in design, development and operations.Small satellites offer great potentials to gain responsive, low-cost access to space within a short timeframe for institutions, companies, regions and countries beyond the traditional big players in the space arena. For these reasons (particularly the low cost of construction, launch and operation), small (micro, cube or nano) satellites are being preferred by students and educational institutions, amateur radio operators, small and developing countries, international aid agencies and most recently by defense agencies and satellite operators who are examining deployment of constellation clusters instead of conventional application satellites. In some cases these new capabilities are being deployed as hosted payloads on larger satellites. The advent of hosted payloads as a significant part of the satellite industry represents a key new topic that this book will address.The number of small satellites-of various types--is increasing fast as their benefits are being realized. This short and unique interdisciplinary book, covering both technical and regulatory aspects, examines all the different types of applications and reasons for small as well as exploring technical and operational innovations that are being introduced. It also examines the new technical standards, removal techniques or other methods that might help to address current problems and the regulatory issues and procedures to ameliorate problems associated with small satellites, especially mounting levels of orbital debris and noncompliance with radio frequency and national licensing requirements, liabilities, export controls and so on.

With the increasing number of disabled work force working in the corporate sector, Assistive technologies play a very important role in training and development. It is necessary now to have new generation of Information Society products and Training Models to train the disabled workforce in an organization, that ensures full access, participation and equality for all the people including the disabled persons, and to implement new and cost-effective solutions for them. By the way of this research, the researcher has developed a training model to impart IT knowledge and skills to visually impaired students. Feedback related to Orca, an open screen reader was collected from its end-users. It was also compared with three different screen readers on 8 different parameters before using it as one of the technology components of the developed training model. The model has been tested successfully to train undergraduate visually impaired students, using both open source and proprietary technology. However to keep the cost of the training process, low the users are advised to use open source technology.
