This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the rapidly changing world of Web-based business technologies and their often-disruptive innovations. The history of the Web is a short one. Indeed many college graduates today were not even born when the Web first emerged. It is therefore an opportune time to view the Web as having reached the point of graduation. The Web has led to new ways in which businesses connect and operate, and how individuals communicate and socialize; related technologies include cloud computing, social commerce, crowd sourcing, and the Internet of Things, to name but a few. These developments, including their technological foundations and business impacts, are at the heart of the book. It contextualizes these topics by providing a brief history of the World Wide Web, both in terms of the technological evolution and its resultant business impacts. The book was written for a broad audience, including technology managers and students in higher education. It is also intended as a guide for people who grew up with a background in business administration or engineering or a related area but who, in the course of their career paths, have reached a point where IT-related decisions have become their daily business, e.g., in digital transformation. The book describes the most important Web technologies and related business applications, and especially focuses on the business implications of these technologies. As such, it offers a solid technology- and business-focused view on the impact of the Web, and balances rules and approaches for strategy development and decision making with a certain technical understanding of what goes on “behind the scenes.”

The Systems Theory Framework was developed to produce a metatheoretical framework through which the contribution of all theories to our understanding of career behaviour could be recognised. In addition it emphasises the individual as the site for the integration of theory and practice. Its utility has become more broadly acknowledged through its application to a range of cultural groups and settings, qualitative assessment processes, career counselling, and multicultural career counselling. For these reasons, the STF is a very valuable addition to the field of career theory. In viewing the field of career theory as a system, open to changes and developments from within itself and through constantly interrelating with other systems, the STF and this book is adding to the pattern of knowledge and relationships within the career field. The contents of this book will be integrated within the field as representative of a shift in understanding existing relationships within and between theories. In the same way, each reader will integrate the contents of the book within their existing views about the current state of career theory and within their current theory-practice relationship. This book should be required reading for anyone involved in career theory. It is also highly suitable as a text for an advanced career counselling or theory course. The first edition of this book appeared under the title Career Development and Systems Theory: A New Relationship. Reviewers' comments on the first edition: ."a thought provoking addition to career development literature." Canadian Journal of Counselling ."a landmark in the field of career development." Australian Journal of Career Development ."it is written in an admirable clear and concise style." British Journal of Guidance and Counseling

Now in its third edition, this project management classic has been updated with an array of field-tested tools to help upper management ensure the success of projects within organizations. For over twenty years, Creating an Environment for Successful Projects has been a staple for upper managers who want to help projects succeed. This new edition includes case studies from companies that have successfully applied the approach, along with practical tools such as templates, surveys, and benchmark reports for savvy leaders who want to ensure project success throughout their organizations. The insights in this book will help management speed projects along instead of getting in their way. All too often, well-intentioned managers put roadblocks in the team's way instead of empowering them with the tools they need to succeed. This approach to project environments, grounded in decades of research and practice, will help you make your organization the most project-friendly it's ever been. Organizational changes rarely work unless upper management is heavily involved. Although project managers are most closely responsible for the success of projects, upper managers are the ones who ultimately create an environment that supports those projects. The way upper managers define, structure, and act toward projects has an important effect on the success or failure of those projects and, consequently, the success or failure of the organization. This book helps all managers understand the need for project management changes and shows how to develop project management as an organizational practice.

Now in its fifth edition, this popular textbook is still the most comprehensive resource available on the oversight of literacy programs (pre-K–12). Focusing on what literacy leaders need to know and do to meet today’s mandates, experts in the field offer new insights that reflect the nation’s changing policies related to the new Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects. It also addresses forthcoming assessments aligned to the common core standards, and new mandates for evaluating teachers and principals. Literacy luminaries provide specific guidelines for all levels of instruction, including selecting and using materials and new technologies, promoting writing, assessing students, evaluating teachers, providing professional development, working with linguistically diverse and struggling learners, working with parents and the community, and evaluating school-wide literacy programs. Book Features: Chapters written by experts who have years of experience working in schools. Real-life examples demonstrate how theories have been applied. Reflective questions and project assignments in each chapter allow readers to relate ideas to their own situations. Connections across chapters and directions for future considerations help summarize and synthesize information. Contributors: Moises Aguirre, Kathryn H. Au, Rita M. Bean, M.
