The guide to shortening your execution cycle down from one year to twelve weeks

Most organizations and individuals work in the context of annual goals and plans; a twelve-month execution cycle. Instead, The 12 Week Year avoids the pitfalls and low productivity of annualized thinking. This book redefines your "year" to be 12 weeks long. In 12 weeks, there just isn't enough time to get complacent, and urgency increases and intensifies. The 12 Week Year creates focus and clarity on what matters most and a sense of urgency to do it now. In the end more of the important stuff gets done and the impact on results is profound.

  • Explains how to leverage the power of a 12 week year to drive improved results in any area of your life
  • Offers a how-to book for both individuals and organizations seeking to improve their execution effectiveness
  • Authors are leading experts on execution and implementation

Turn your organization's idea of a year on its head, and speed your journey to success.

Ethics is not just about morality; it is a complex dimension of personal and corporate life that can lead to higher performance by both business and society. Customers, employees and business partners seek predictable corporate behaviour that is aligned with stated personal, workplace and democratic values. Ethics training can help to achieve this.

This business ethics primer is a valuable tool for raising ethical awareness in your organisation. Reflecting on employees' personal values and world views, it then examines their impact on the development and application of your organisation's mission, vision and values and finally, your organisation's impact on the societies and environment in which it operates.

Three Dimensional Ethics: Implementing Workplace Values concludes with a unique chapter on ethics and doing business in China, illuminating roles in corporate stakeholder responsibility that align with principles in the Confucian Analects.

Lagan and Moran provide a practical perspective on business ethics training that is lively, relevant and useful with insights into managing corporate values such as:

Ethical frameworks

Ladder of escalation options

Ethical dilemmas

Ethical decision making models

Ethics audits

Codes of ethics and Codes of conduct

Vision and values models

Stakeholder commitment steps

Governance checklists

Addressing values gaps

Knowing your values

The four virtues

Stages of moral development

Reflection and action

Training tools include Australian and global case studies, definitions, tips, snapshots of ethical approaches, models, quotes, checklists, discussion panels, workshops, scenarios and exercises.

This updated and expanded edition of the bestselling textbookprovides a comprehensive introduction to the methods and theory ofnonlinear finite element analysis. New material provides a conciseintroduction to some of the cutting-edge methods that have evolvedin recent years in the field of nonlinear finite element modeling,and includes the eXtended finite element method (XFEM),multiresolution continuum theory for multiscale microstructures,and dislocation-density-based crystalline plasticity.

Nonlinear Finite Elements for Continua and Structures, SecondEdition focuses on the formulation and solution of discreteequations for various classes of problems that are of principalinterest in applications to solid and structural mechanics. Topicscovered include the discretization by finite elements of continuain one dimension and in multi-dimensions; the formulation ofconstitutive equations for nonlinear materials and largedeformations; procedures for the solution of the discreteequations, including considerations of both numerical andmultiscale physical instabilities; and the treatment of structuraland contact-impact problems.

Key features:

Presents a detailed and rigorous treatment of nonlinear solidmechanics and how it can be implemented in finite elementanalysisCovers many of the material laws used in today's software andresearchIntroduces advanced topics in nonlinear finite elementmodelling of continuaIntroduction of multiresolution continuum theory and XFEMAccompanied by a website hosting a solution manual andMATLAB® and FORTRAN code

Nonlinear Finite Elements for Continua and Structures, SecondEdition is a must have textbook for graduate students inmechanical engineering, civil engineering, applied mathematics,engineering mechanics, and materials science, and is also anexcellent source of information for researchers and practitionersin industry.

An insightful new book from the multimillion-copy bestselling author Sean Covey and the FranklinCovey organization based on their work with hundreds of thousands of employees and large companies to unveil the essential disciplines proven to help businesses and individuals realize their most important goals.

Do you remember the last major initiative you watched die in your organization? Did it go down with a loud crash? Or was it slowly and quietly suffocated by other competing priorities?

By the time it finally disappeared, it’s likely no one even noticed.

What happened? The “whirlwind” of urgent activity required to keep things running day-to-day devoured all the time and energy you needed to invest in executing your strategy for tomorrow! The 4 Disciplines of Execution can change all that forever.

The 4 Disciplines of Execution (4DX) is a simple, repeatable, and proven formula for executing on your most important strategic priorities in the midst of the whirlwind. By following The 4 Disciplines:

• Focusing on the Wildly Important

• Acting on Lead Measures

• Keeping a Compelling Scoreboard

• Creating a Cadence of Accountability

leaders can produce breakthrough results, even when executing the strategy requires a significant change in behavior from their teams.

4DX is not theory. It is a proven set of practices that have been tested and refined by hundreds of organizations and thousands of teams over many years. When a company or an individual adheres to these disciplines, they achieve superb results—regardless of the goal. 4DX represents a new way of thinking and working that is essential to thriving in today’s competitive climate. Simply put, this is one book that no business leader can afford to miss.
