            Always Day One: How the Tech Titans Stay on Top (EPUB ebook)

            By Kantrowitz, Alex

            At Amazon, 'Day One' is code for inventing like a startup with little regard for legacy. Day Two is, in Jeff Bezos's own words, is 'stasis, followed by irrelevance, followed by excruciating, painful decline, followed by death.'Most companies today are set up for Day Two. They bui...ld advantages and defend them fiercely rather than invent the future. But Amazon and fellow tech titans Facebook, Google, and Microsoft are operating in Day One: they prioritize reinvention over tradition and collaboration over ownership.Through 130 interviews with insiders, from Mark Zuckerberg to hourly workers, Always Day One reveals the tech giants' blueprint for sustainable success. Kantrowitz uncovers the engine propelling the tech giants' continued dominance at a stage when most big companies begin to decline. And he shows the way forward for everyone who wants to compete with, and beat, the titans.

            When Entrepreneurs Meet: The Collective Governance of New Ideas challenges our understanding of how entrepreneurs crystallize opportunities surrounding new technologies. While innovation is the fundamental driver of growth and prosperity, how the earliest stages of entrepreneursh...ip are governed remains elusive. This book creates a new, institutional approach to understanding entrepreneurship before emphasizing how entrepreneurs create governance structures to coordinate new knowledge resources.Rather than the conventional view that entrepreneurship happens inside firms, this unique transaction-cost economics analysis of entrepreneurship suggests it might begin earlier in hybrid, polycentric self-governance structures, including the innovation commons. Allen explores and analyses various examples of these structures, including hackerspaces and the institutions coalescing around the development of the blockchain economy, along with the dynamics of how those institutions might collapse into firms. This new understanding of the entrepreneurial governance problem is also connected to contemporary questions about the purpose, scope, and application of innovation policy.

            With business and organizations moving at an ever -faster pace and facing evermore more and more demanding challenges, the need for efficient, succinct and productive interaction between individuals of those businesses and organizations is more important than ever. With the bound...s of communication restrictions abandoned through technological advances (we can now see and hear anyone across any manner of virtual platforms anywhere around the globe) and with a greater understanding of the underlying dynamics of human interaction, unprecedented pressure has been thrust upon the individual or individuals whom, often, enable these dynamic interactions: the facilitator. Many of us have, at one time or other, been responsible for a meeting - whether between a small number of individuals or an entire organization of hundreds, or possibly thousands, of business men and women. Or, perhaps, we've had to be the mediator in a family dispute closer to home, or managed a discussion between two, feuding friends or colleagues. One way or another, chances are, all of us has have been a facilitator at some point in our lives. With the ever-growing demands placed on facilitators, this book delivers methodical, structured approach to facilitation. This book is the definitive guide to instruct and assist facilitators - both new and experienced - with a set of guidelines and underlying theory that will benefit any facilitator, whether as a mediator between two individuals, single-handedly facilitating a group of one hundred, or working as part of a facilitation team in a multinational corporation. The first part of the book, develops the core basic skills of those new to the art of facilitating. There are many examples and exercises to show the reader how to apply them in different situations. The second part of the book is for more experienced facilitators as it focuses on more advanced skills and tackling difficult situations. Specific tools and techniques are illustrated for the reader.

            Universities are being buffeted by multiple disruptive trends, including increased competition for both funding and students, as well as from new institutions that are nimbler and more responsive to the external environment. To survive this reality, university leaders must engage... in effective strategic planning that cascades from the president or vice-chancellor's office to individual faculty and staff. Outcomes of an effective institutional strategy are the alignment of resource allocation with strategic goals, and the facilitation of clear and transparent decision-making for new program development, research capacity growth, and infrastructure investment. With increasing expectations for university leaders to engage in strategic planning, Strategic University Management: Future Proofing Your Institution provides a practical framework for managing the process and delivering results. This book illustrates that the inherent weaving of strategic planning and organizational culture through engaged consultation facilitates a culture of responsiveness, rather than complacency. Providing an in depth overview of the value strategy can create in universities, it provides a framework for initiating, implementing and assessing strategic planning in a university setting that will make it valuable to researchers, academics, university leaders, and students in the fields of strategic planning, organizational studies, leadership, and higher education management.
