Herb Johnson believes that we are meant to live abundantly. We are designed to live the good life, with the freedom and creativity to follow our passions. What will defeat us is an attitude of impoverishment—the belief that we are undeserving, so why should we try. In Engineering Business Success, Johnson explores the structure of success. Many books overflow with detail about business systems—important, yes, but they don’t reveal the big picture of what it takes to succeed. What fundamentally must be in place to open and effectively operate a successful business? As an engineer and as a businessperson, Johnson has written an important resource for both. But his book is for anyone who wants to make something of himself or herself, because the themes here are central to winning. Business opportunities abound in our society, and Johnson shows you what you should be looking for, and what needs to be in place if you are to win. So many businesses fail right out of the gate, and Johnson has the antidote so that it won’t happen to you. Foremost, he says, you need to seize the responsibility to serve— to serve your industry, your clients, and your stakeholders. That is the underpinning of success. In Engineering Business Success, Herb Johnson shares what he has learned in his 28 years at the helm of the thriving company that he founded. And he shares what he has learned in life, since his boyhood rural upbringing, through his years as a young engineer, and as he has worked to make the most of his business. Johnson’s story demonstrates the trajectory of following one’s passion—and doing so with the spirit of service and with the business savvy that he has learned along the way. “Herb embraces an attitude of abundance, a dedication to discipline, and commitment for lifetime learning, all of which pour forth from this story of his entrepreneurial journey. Business owners, and those wishing to experience the freedoms Herb has enjoyed, will get a dose of enthusiasm and pick up some helpful hints from reading this book.” —VERNE HARNISH, FOUNDER, ENTREPRENEURS’ ORGANIZATION AND GAZELLES AUTHOR OF SCALING UP AND MASTERING THE ROCKEFELLER HABITS

One of the keys to successful business process engineering is tight alignment of processes with organisational goals and values. Historically, however, it has always been difficult to relate different levels of organizational processes to the strategic and operational objectives of a complex organization with many interrelated and interdependent processes and goals. This lack of integration is especially well recognized within the Human Resource Management (HRM) discipline, where there is a clearly defined need for greater alignment of HRM processes with the overall organizational objectives. Value-Focused Business Process Engineering is a monograph that combines and extends the best on offer in Information Systems and Operations Research/Decision Sciences modelling paradigms to facilitate gains in both business efficiency and business effectiveness.

Pro Website Development and Operations gives you the experience you need to create and operate a large-scale production website. Large-scale websites have their own unique set of problems regarding their design—problems that can get worse when agile methodologies are adopted for rapid results. Managing large-scale websites, deploying applications, and ensuring they are performing well often requires a full scale team involving the development and operations sides of the company—two departments that don't always see eye to eye. When departments struggle with each other, it adds unnecessary complexity to the work, and that result shows in the customer experience. Pro Website Development and Operations shows you how to streamline the work of web development and operations - incorporating the latest insights and methodologies of DevOps - so that your large-scale website is up and running quickly, with little friction and extreme efficiency between divisions. This book provides critical knowledge for any developer engaged in delivering the business and software engineering goals required to create and operate a large-scale production website. It addresses how developers can collaborate effectively with business and engineering teams to ensure applications are smoothly transitioned from product inception to implementation, and are properly deployed and managed. Pro Website Development and Operations provides unique insights into how systems, code, and process can all work together to make large-scale website development and operations ultra-efficient.

Engineering for Business features teaching materials and case studies developed for senior undergraduate courses in engineering and business and graduate-level classes in Engineering Management, Industrial Engineering and Management, and Technology Management. This work surveys the more robust quantitative tools and techniques used to facilitate decision-making in business and uses case studies to illustrate their application. Where appropriate, the readers are provided with frameworks to enable application of the techniques covered and are directed to commercially available software developed to facilitate the deployment of these tools and techniques. Traditional industrial engineering and engineering management techniques related to Engineering Economy, Multi-Criteria Decision-making, Project Management, Management Science, and Facilities Planning are covered. These are complemented by a review of more topical areas, such as Applications Software for Business, Technology Commercialization, and Supply Chain Management. In all areas, the emphasis is on integrating theory and practice through the use of case studies based on projects conducted in a wide range of industry settings. Engineering for Business provides a robust framework for the explicit integration of engineering tools and techniques into a business curriculum. The case studies are rich in data and provide great opportunities for students to apply the techniques covered and to propose innovative solutions to open-ended project assignments.

Systems Engineering for Business Process Change: New Directions is a collection of papers resulting from an EPSRC managed research programme set up to investigate the relationships between Legacy IT Systems and Business Processes. The papers contained in this volume report the results from the projects funded by the programme, which ran between 1997 and 2001. An earlier volume, published in 2000, reported interim results. Bringing together researchers from diverse backgrounds in Computer Science, Information Systems, Engineering and Business Schools, this book explores the problems experienced by IT-dependent businesses that have to implement changing business processes in the context of their investment in legacy systems. The book presents some of the solutions investigated through the collaborations set up within the research programme. Whether you are a researcher interested in the ideas that were generated by the research programme, or a user trying to understand the nature of the problems and their solutions, you cannot fail to be inspired by the writings contained in this volume.

Due to growing concern about the competitiveness of industry in the international marketplace and the efficiency ofgovernment enterprises, widespread initiatives are currently underway to enhance thecompetitive posture offirms and to streamline government operations. Nearly all enterprises are engaged in assessing ways in which their productivity, product quality and operations can be improved. These efforts canbe described as Business Process Engineering (BPE). BPE had its roots in industry under differing titIes: Process Improvement, Process Simplification, Process Innovation, Reengineering, etc. It has matured to be an important ingredient of successful enterprises in the private and public sectors. After extensive exploitation by industrial and governmental practitioners and consultants, it is attracting increasing attention from academics in the fields of engineering and business. However, even with all of this attention in the popular literature, serious scholarly literature on BPE is in short supply. TItis is somewhat surprising, especially since so many large international organizations have attempted BPE projectswith varied success.
