Some have claimed that "War is too important to be left to the generals," but P. W. Singer asks "What about the business executives?" Breaking out of the guns-for-hire mold of traditional mercenaries, corporations now sell skills and services that until recently only state militaries possessed. Their products range from trained commando teams to strategic advice from generals. This new "Privatized Military Industry" encompasses hundreds of companies, thousands of employees, and billions of dollars in revenue. Whether as proxies or suppliers, such firms have participated in wars in Africa, Asia, the Balkans, and Latin America. More recently, they have become a key element in U.S. military operations. Private corporations working for profit now sway the course of national and international conflict, but the consequences have been little explored. In this book, Singer provides the first account of the military services industry and its broader implications. Corporate Warriors includes a description of how the business works, as well as portraits of each of the basic types of companies: military providers that offer troops for tactical operations; military consultants that supply expert advice and training; and military support companies that sell logistics, intelligence, and engineering. In an updated edition of P. W. Singer's classic account of the military services industry and its broader implications, the author describes the continuing importance of that industry in the Iraq War. This conflict has amply borne out Singer's argument that the privatization of warfare allows startling new capabilities and efficiencies in the ways that war is carried out. At the same time, however, Singer finds that the introduction of the profit motive onto the battlefield raises troubling questions—for democracy, for ethics, for management, for human rights, and for national security.

Claiming your piece of your target market can be an uphill battle between you and your competition. That is why many business people use military strategies to gain the upper hand, and influence how they conduct business. There is an art to war. Before a military is dispatched on a mission, they have to determine what they want to accomplish by using military force. When you are running a business, you are conducting missions that all work to one common goal. You have to define the purpose of these "missions" as well as describe the necessary measures you have to take to make the mission be successful. Like the military, you will have to design the organization so that you are attacking the business world from all sides. For instance, the military has the Air Force for air strikes, the navy for sea battles and the army for foot soldiers. Your business may need a department for sales, a department for production, a department for customer service, a department for marketing, etc. ================= Table Of Contents ================= Introduction Structuring Your Business With Military Precision Rules Of Engagement Code Of Ethics The Mighty Mission Statement Make Leaders, Not Managers The Business Chain Of Command Dress For Success Use An Awards Program For Positive Reinforcement The Importance Of Building Morale How To Be On The Offense In Business A Business Plan Or A Military Strategy Strong Clear Communication Decisive Thinking Diversify Your Training Be The James Bond Of The Business World Knowing Your Competition Knowing Your Company Knowing Your Consumer Other Books By Jnr Publishing Group Bonus-Sample Chapters Of The Book: Crucial Aspect Recognition And Identification Elimination Of Any Remaining Aspects Crucial Aspect Recognition & Identification Effective Boundary Placements

The Business of War considers the myriad ways in which transnational labour migration intersects with the occupation of Iraq and examines the role of the USA in the Middle East. The book places the war on terror within the practices of neoliberalism, but also links this with migration issues and argues that it is all part of a larger 'business' of conflict.

Safety and health professionals face potential legal and ethical issues on an almost daily basis. In a landscape of changing responsibilities and new laws, they often make difficult decisions that can result, in hindsight, in the creation of legal issues and liabilities for themselves and their companies. Written by occupational health and safety expert Ton Schneid, Corporate Safety Compliance: OSHA, Ethics, and the Law provides guidance though the maze of legal issues involving OSHA and OSHRC and how to avoid potential legal liability. Tackling safety and ethical issues head on, Schneid explores issues in criminal liability for individuals and corporations under the OSHA Act and state criminal codes. He includes methods for achieving and maintaining OSHA compliance, using specific case studies to illustrate ways to avoid or minimize the impact of legal issues. The text addresses not only OSHA regulations and standards but also the legal aspects up to and including OSHRC decisions on specific issues. Additionally, the author examines the ethical issues involved in many of the legal aspects of the safety issues as well as ethical issues in the day-to-day management of safety and health. The mere mention of the word OSHA scares many people. Often, OSHA has been the much maligned federal agency that was the brunt of attacks from both management and labor organizations. Tom Schneid elucidates the potential legal and ethical issues of the new industrialized workplace. His proactive approach helps you avoid or minimize potential liabilities, where possible, but also gives you the tools to be prepared and knowledgeable in the unique appellate process with OSHA and the OSHRC.
