Esta es una obra acerca de la estrategia competitiva, escrita por una economista, quien afirma que las ideas fundamentales en la microeconomía son muy importantes para comprender la planeación estratégica. La obra aborda tres temas fundamentales. En primer lugar, siguiendo la tradición económica, se centra en la naturaleza competitiva de la estrategia competitiva, dedicando gran parte al estudio de la forma en la cual las fuerzas interactivas dentro del mercado y fuera de él, afectan las elecciones estratégicas disponibles para las organizaciones y los resultados de esas elecciones. En segundo tema de este libro es la importancia del cambio, el cual es esencial para el movimiento, de manera que podamos pensar en la planeación estratégica como una forma de crear y mantener el cambio. El último tema es que las elecciones implicadas en el desarrollo de una estrategia, se hacen inevitablemente en el contexto de una información limitada y de las fricciones en el mercado. Esta obra, en síntesis, proporciona un claro y sólido entendimiento del análisis moderno de la competitividad, en la cual además, se examina el ambiente competitivo, el interior de la organización, el grado de rivalidad y el proceso de planeación.

Orientarsi nel mondo non è facile. Ogni oggetto, ogni evento è carico di storia e di significati che in gran parte dipendono dalla nostra cultura: ce ne rendiamo conto leggendo un articolo di giornale, un libro o un blog, quando certi riferimenti o certe allusioni ci lasciano sorpresi o perplessi. Date, nomi, concetti chiave che hanno cercato di inculcarci ai tempi della scuola non servono solo per risolvere le parole crociate: sono strumenti di orientamento per riuscire a collocare le informazioni al posto giusto ed esercitare il proprio senso critico. Avere queste informazioni a portata di mano è come avere una mappa per girare in città senza perdersi. Ma un libro è anche un racconto: e magari si potrebbe scoprire che certe materie non erano poi così noiose come sembravano, soprattutto se narrate in un forma divertente e alla portata di tutti! L'8 dicembre 2009, durante una trasmissione tv, l'allora Ministro del Turismo dichiarava che la ripresa della Prima della Scala era stata trasmessa in ben 250 Paesi. Peccato che in quell'anno i Paesi ufficialmente riconosciuti fossero solo 194... In un mondo in cui la comunicazione è sempre più ricca nelle sue forme, veloce e globalizzata, è avvantaggiato non tanto chi sa molte cose (non si può comunque mai sapere tutto), ma chi sa inquadrarle al meglio: la cultura generale è strumento fondamentale per riuscire a collocare le informazioni al posto giusto ed esercitare il proprio senso critico. Questo volume vuole offrire, nella forma più semplice e alla portata di tutti, quella "cultura generale" che può essere più utile per muoversi nel mondo contemporaneo.

For many students, calculus can be the most mystifying and frustrating course they will ever take. The Calculus Lifesaver provides students with the essential tools they need not only to learn calculus, but to excel at it. All of the material in this user-friendly study guide has been proven to get results. The book arose from Adrian Banner's popular calculus review course at Princeton University, which he developed especially for students who are motivated to earn A's but get only average grades on exams. The complete course will be available for free on the Web in a series of videotaped lectures. This study guide works as a supplement to any single-variable calculus course or textbook. Coupled with a selection of exercises, the book can also be used as a textbook in its own right. The style is informal, non-intimidating, and even entertaining, without sacrificing comprehensiveness. The author elaborates standard course material with scores of detailed examples that treat the reader to an "inner monologue"--the train of thought students should be following in order to solve the problem--providing the necessary reasoning as well as the solution. The book's emphasis is on building problem-solving skills. Examples range from easy to difficult and illustrate the in-depth presentation of theory. The Calculus Lifesaver combines ease of use and readability with the depth of content and mathematical rigor of the best calculus textbooks. It is an indispensable volume for any student seeking to master calculus. Serves as a companion to any single-variable calculus textbook Informal, entertaining, and not intimidating Informative videos that follow the book--a full forty-eight hours of Banner's Princeton calculus-review course--is available at Adrian Banner lectures More than 475 examples (ranging from easy to hard) provide step-by-step reasoning Theorems and methods justified and connections made to actual practice Difficult topics such as improper integrals and infinite series covered in detail Tried and tested by students taking freshman calculus
