Written from firsthand experiences offered by author, banker, and entrepreneur Doug Thorpe. This is a collection of practical principles, ideas, tips, and life hacks to help new managers thrive.It is common business practice for companies of all sizes to look across their workforce and make some interesting picks when a new team leader is needed. Often, the selection criteria are based upon highest performer, the biggest producer, or smartest worker.Moving from being the doer on the team to being the leader of the team is a big leap for most. Despite business school learning or practical on-the-job leadership lessons (like returning military), nothing is more sobering that meeting with your team for the first time after you are selected.Effective transition begins immediately. Miss the first few steps, and you might have momentum moving in the wrong direction. There are so many variables that can determine the outcome. As the candidate who becomes the new manager, your role changes on the spot. Now, other people are counting on you for guidance, decision-making, and support. You still might have your own work product quotas to manage, but now, you add on the load of managing the others.While things heat up at work during the transition, it is easy for your personal life to get out of balance. 1.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2018 in the subject Computer Science - Software, grade: Excellence, Mälardalen University (The school of Innovation, design and engineering), language: English, abstract: Optimizing the software testing process has received much attention over the last few decades. Test optimization is typically seen as a multi-criteria decision making problem. One aspect of test optimization involves test selection, prioritization and execution scheduling. Having an efficient test process can result in the satisfaction of many objectives such as cost and time minimization. It can also lead to on-time delivery and better quality of the final software product.To achieve the goal of test efficiency, a set of criteria, having an impact on the test cases, needs to be identified. The analysis of several industrial case studies and also state of the art in this thesis, indicate that the dependency between integration test cases is one such criterion, which has a direct impact on test execution results. Other criteria of interest include requirement coverage and test execution time. In this doctoral thesis, we introduce, apply and evaluate a set of approaches and tools for test execution optimization at industrial integration testing level in embedded software development. Furthermore, ESPRET (Estimation and Prediction of Execution Time) and sOrTES (Stochastic Optimizing of Test Case Scheduling) are our proposed supportive tools for predicting the execution time and the scheduling of manual integration test cases, respectively.All proposed methods and tools in this thesis, have been evaluated at industrial testing projects at Bombardier Transportation (BT) in Sweden. As a result of the scientific contributions made in this doctoral thesis, employing the proposed approaches has led to an improvement in terms of reducing redundant test execution failures of up to 40% with respect to the current test execution approach at BT. Moreover, an increase in the requirements coverage of up to 9.6% is observed at BT. In summary, the application of the proposed approaches in this doctoral thesis has shown to give considerable gains by optimizing test schedules in system integration testing of embedded software development.
Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2018 im Fachbereich BWL - Bank, Börse, Versicherung, Note: 1,3, Universität Kassel, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Within the last couple of years, the topic sustainability gained significant importance. Entrepreneurs are getting more aware of their responsibility and invest into a more efficient and ecological economic behavior. Several studies prove a positive impact of a sustainable approach on the operative performance of a company. A similar development can be witnessed on the capital market, where decisions of investment are no longer taken due to financial matters only, but involving ecological and social aspects into the decision-making process (cf. Wallis, Klein 2015, p. 63). Since the financial resources to promote social responsibility projects in companies are continuously rising, one can assume an equally rising importance of CSR for the companies concerned. To inform the participants of the capital markets about ongoing CSR projects appropriately, many companies publish special reports about their sustainability activities and results. In how far these sustainability-investments do have a considerable impact on the dividend payment has however not been examined yet. Thus, the present paper aims to answer the question, whether CSR measures do have an influence on the company's dividend payment for shareholders. This thesis will focus on the impact of so called sustainability-ratings from the rating agency ASSET4 on the distribution rate of the company. Furthermore, the rating categories used by the rating agency (namely corporate governance, social and environmental aspects) will be considered, using these three criteria to examine specific effects of the company's ecological and social behavior on the dividends. A high score in the sustainable rating indicates a higher degree of sustainable awareness of the company. Concerning the dividend policy, this paper will raise the question whether companies acting according to sustainable principles are likely to pay higher dividends to their shareholders.
This open access book explores the collision between the sustainable energy transition and the Internet of Things (IoT). In that regard, this book's arrival is timely. Not only is the Internet of Things for energy applications, herein called the energy Internet of Things (eIoT), rapidly developing but also the transition towards sustainable energy to abate global climate is very much at the forefront of public discourse. It is within the context of these two dynamic thrusts, digitization and global climate change, that the energy industry sees itself undergoing significant change in how it is operated and managed. This book recognizes that they impose five fundamental energy management change drivers: 1.) the growing demand for electricity, 2.) the emergence of renewable energy resources, 3.) the emergence of electrified transportation, 4.) the deregulation of electric power markets, 5.) and innovations in smart grid technology. Together, they challenge many of the assumptions upon which the electric grid was first built.The goal of this book is to provide a single integrated picture of how eIoT can come to transform our energy infrastructure. This book links the energy management change drivers mentioned above to the need for a technical energy management solution. It, then, describes how eIoT meets many of the criteria required for such a technical solution. In that regard, the book stresses the ability of eIoT to add sensing, decision-making, and actuation capabilities to millions or perhaps even billions of interacting "smart" devices. With such a large scale transformation composed of so many independent actions, the book also organizes the discussion into a single multi-layer energy management control loop structure. Consequently, much attention is given to not just network-enabled physical devices but also communication networks, distributed control & decision making, and finally technical architectures and standards. Having gone into the detail of these many simultaneously developing technologies, the book returns to how these technologies when integrated form new applications for transactive energy. In that regard, it highlights several eIoT-enabled energy management use cases that fundamentally change the relationship between end users, utilities, and grid operators. Consequently, the book discusses some of the emerging applications for utilities, industry, commerce, and residences. The book concludes that these eIoT applications will transform today's grid into one that is much more responsive, dynamic, adaptive and flexible. It also concludes that this transformation will bring about new challenges and opportunities for the cyber-physical-economic performance of the grid and the business models of its increasingly growing number of participants and stakeholders.
