The Paleo Diet:  A Beginner's Guide , Hörbuch, ...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 2013, the buzzword for people trying to lose weight was "paleo." The paleo diet was the most searched for diet on the web in the first week of January of that year. And, like most fads, it appears to have quietly slipped away into the night to be replaced by newer fads with equally short life spans. But even though the paleo diet may not be hogging the spotlight anymore, it is still going strong as many people embrace the "caveman lifestyle." We'll take a closer look at what the paleo diet is and how it works in the next chapter. Before we get there, I'd like to take a moment to remind you that paleo is not for everyone. There is no one diet that is perfect for every single person on the planet. If, after listening to this book, you decide that the paleo diet may not work for you, that's okay. Many people have had wonderful results by eating paleo. Other people have had equally great results from different diets. It's all about finding what works for you. The paleo diet does have two big advantages that make it easy to follow. The first is that you don't have to count calories or keep a strict schedule. Whenever you get hungry, you eat until you feel full. The secret is that you are eating nutrient-dense foods that fill you up fast and make it almost impossible to overeat. At least, you are if you're not cheating. And that's the second advantage of the paleo diet. There is no cheating. There is no strict list that tells you eat all of this and none of that. Yes, you should cut down on grains, but if you want to split a pizza with the gang, it won't kill you. The trick is to make a conscience decision to go off-paleo for one meal, or even one day. For example, if you go to a party knowing that it's going to be really hard to stick to your diet there, decide beforehand that you're going to eat what you want tonight and get back on track tomorrow. Making that choice ahead of time keeps you in control. So, let's get started! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kathy Poelker.

Managing Quality Fads
86,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Can managers learn from fads? That is the question Robert Cole addresses in this insightful book about the various factors supporting and inhibiting organizational learning. A longtime student of the Japanese and American quality movements, Cole focuses on the response of American industry to the challenge posed in the early 1980s by high quality goods from Japan. While most American managers view this challenge as slowly but successfully met, many academics see the quality movement that emerged from it as just another fad. In seeking to reconcile these two views, Cole explores the reasons behind American industry's slow response to Japanese quality, arguing that a variety of institutional factors inhibited management action in the early 1980s. He then describes the reshaping of institutions that allowed American companies to close the quality gap and to achieve sustained quality improvements in the 1990s. Hewlett-Packard serves as an example of a company that made this institutional transition more effectively than most. Cole describes Hewlett-Packard's successful strategies while also pointing out the serious problems that it and other companies face as they attempt to adapt, improve, and go beyond Japanese practices. He also uses Hewlett-Packard, an exemplar of the highly decentralized company, to explore effective strategies for the creation, dissemination, and implementation of knowledge. Unprecedented as a scholarly treatment of the quality movement,Managing Quality Fads provides several important lessons for those interested in management decision making under conditions of uncertainty and organizational transformation in a rapidly changing business environment.

Designing Organizations to Create Value: From S...
36,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A Three-Pronged Strategy for Boosting Organizational Performance--and Shareholder Value As a business leader in today's increasingly competitive global race, you need more than fads and buzzwords. You need a focused, cross-functional organizational design, one that will foster intercompany communication and help you identify and resolve minor issues before they become major barriers to success. Designing Organizations to Create Value draws on recent research as well as the authors' hands-on experience to outline an integrated framework for coordinating the three critical aspects of organizational architecture: Assignment of decision-making authority Development of effective performance evaluation systems Creation of a logical and motivating compensation structure Executives and senior-level decision makers must focus on the entirety of their organizations--as opposed to one particular facet such as strategy, quality, or logistics--to build an efficient and interconnected company. Let Designing Organizations to Create Value provide you with methods to systematically analyze all of your organizational issues and reconstruct your workforce into that of a balanced, functional, and battle-ready market leader. 'In today's environment, managers are under increasing pressure to address organizational issues and manage organizational change. . . . The business literature to date has . . . failed to provide managers with an integrated approach to identifying and solving organizational problems. Our book is designed to provide a systematic, comprehensive framework for analyzing organizational issues, one that can be consistently applied in addressing problems and structuring more effective organizations.'--From the Preface 'Value creation' is more than just another buzz phrase; it is, in fact, the time-honored key to business success. Designing Organizations to Create Value is today's most top-to-bottom examination of the ever-elusive topic of value--how it is measured, how firms create and capture it, and how the drive for value impacts the strategy of the entire firm. Rather than focusing on one aspect or strategy, however, this comprehensive book details virtually every area that influences value creation, including: Proven strategies for efficient deployment of knowledge throughout an organization Decentralization, and the necessity of implementing proper checks and balances The essential and interwoven roles of institutional innovation, strategy, and dynamic leadership By whatever name, in whatever era, value creation is a requisite for long-term organizational survival and success. Designing Organizations to Create Value combines decades of multidisciplinary research with case studies from market leaders such as General Electric, Honda, and Wal-Mart to illustrate the payoffs from effective organizational design--and provide a practical, sensible approach for creating value at every level and with every process of your organization.
