            Deutsche Bank: The Global Hausbank, 1870 - 2020
              

            Deutsche Bank: The Global Hausbank, 1870 - 2020 (EPUB ebook)

            By Plumpe, Werner; Nutzenadel, Alexander; Schenk, Catherine

            Over the course of its 150-year history,Deutsche Bank has established itself as a major player in the world of international finance, but has also been confronted by numerous challenges that have changed the face of Europe - from two world wars, to the rise and subsequent fall of... communism. In this major work on the bank's history, Werner Plumpe, Alexander Nutzenadel and Catherine R. Schenk deliver a vibrant account of the measures the bank undertook in order to address the profound upheavals of the period, as well as the diverse and unusual demands it had to face. These included the First World War, which brought the world's first period of globalization to a sudden and dramatic end, but also the development of the predominantly national framework within which the bank had to operate from 1914 until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. More recently, the focus has shifted back to European and global activities, with Deutsche Bank forging new paths into the Anglo-American capital markets business - so opening another extraordinary chapter for the bank.

            How to Speak Machine: Laws of Design for a Digital Age (EPUB ebook)

            By Maeda, John

            John Maeda is one of the world's preeminent thinkers on technology and design, and in How to Speak Machine, he offers a set of simple laws that govern not only the computers of today, but the unimaginable machines of the future. Machines are already more powerful than we can comp...rehend, and getting more powerful at an exponential pace. Once set in motion, algorithms never tire. And when a program's size, speed and endlessness combine with its ability to learn and transform itself, the outcome can be unpredictable and dangerous. Take the seemingly instant transformation of Microsoft's chatbot into a hate-spewing racist, or how crime-predicting algorithms reinforce racial bias. How To Speak Machine provides a coherent framework for today's product designers, business leaders and policymakers to grasp this brave new world. Drawing on his wide-ranging experience from engineering to computer science to design, Maeda shows how businesses and individuals can identify opportunities afforded by technology to make world-changing and inclusive products while avoiding the pitfalls inherent to the medium.

            This book addresses fundamental questions about the very idea of demand: how is it constituted, how does it change and how might it be steered? Conceptualising Demand focuses on five core propositions: that demand is derived from social practices; that it is made and not simply m...et; that it is materially embedded and temporally unfolding; and that it is modulated through many forms of policy and governance. In working through these claims, the book weaves concepts from the sociology of consumption, science and technology studies, policy analyses and social theories of practice together with empirical cases and new research into such topics as the rise of refrigerated foods, the emergence of online shopping, and the transformation of energy demanding services. This innovative book takes a fresh look at the very idea of demand, a concept that is often taken-for-granted, but that is vital for scholars and students of energy, mobility, climate change and consumption, and anyone interested in the subject.

            This book provides panoramic overviews of critical human service organizational and management practice challenges, as well as new and needed research frontiers. The Future of Human Service Organizational & Management Research: Navigating Complex Frontiers invites researchers, ed...ucators, and practitioners to explore: the intersection of the complex environment of public and private human service organizations; and the rise and uncertain effects of new developments in social work, public policy and public management, and other helping professions. The contributors identify how future generations of macro practitioners and scholar-researchers can: Improve service delivery and program effectiveness; Implement evidence-based practices and evidence-informed practices; Promote leadership and social innovation; Build linkages across micro, meso, and macro levels of practice; Train organizational leaders and educate practitioners; and Advocate for more socially just visions of social welfare and society. This edited collection argues that human service organizational and management practice and research are needed to support new discoveries in social welfare, social work, and related professions. This book was originally published as a special issue of the journal, Human Service Organizations: Management, Leadership & Governance.

            Project management skills are valuable for any healthcare project, not just technology projects. Non-technology activities that would benefit from project management skills include implementing a new policy house wide, updating training for use of the EHR, creating a new orientat...ion program, quality assurance activities, submitting an article or presentation, writing a research proposal, or opening a new patient care unit. In addition, project management skills are not just for project managers, but can be used by anyone leading these types of activities, such as managers, staff, educators, and researchers. Many books on healthcare project management have been focused on technology projects while non-technology projects flounder without the required knowledge or skills of the person leading the project. The purpose of this book is to discuss these skills based on the Project Management Institute standards in a way that non-project managers would be able to understand and apply. Concepts from project initiation through project closure will be presented twice, first for novices and then for project leaders with more advanced skills. Practical, accessible and containing numerous examples for each phase of the Project Management Institute Framework, this book will be a valuable resource for all healthcare professionals and both novice and experienced project managers.

            Historically, security managers have tended to be sourced from either the armed forces or law enforcement. But the increasing complexity of the organisations employing them, along with the technologies employed by them, is forcing an evolution and expansion of the role, and secur...ity managers must meet this challenge in order to succeed in their field, as well as protect the assets of their employers. Risk management, crisis management, continuity management, strategic business operations, data security, IT and business communications all fall under the purview of the security manager. This book is a guide to meeting those challenges, providing the security manager with the essential skill set and knowledge base to meet the challenges faced in contemporary, international, or tech-oriented businesses. It covers the basics of strategy, risk, and technology from the perspective of the security manager, focusing only one the need to know . The reader will benefit from an understanding of how risk management aligns its functional aims with the strategic goals and operations of the organisation. This essential book supports professional vocational accreditation and qualifications, such as the Chartered Security Professional (CSyP), or Certified Protection Professional (CPP), and advises on pathways to higher education qualifications in the fields of Security and Risk Management. It is ideal for any risk manager looking to further their training and development, as well as being complementary for Risk and Security Management programs with a focus on practice.
