9 Scrum - Jeff Sutherland & JJ Sutherland
Auteur : Jeff Sutherland & JJ Sutherland
Genre : Management & Leadership
For those who believe that there must be a more agile and efficient way for people to get things done, here is a brilliantly discursive, thought-provoking book about the leadership and management process that is changing the way we live.
 
In the future, historians may look back on human progress and draw a sharp line designating “before Scrum” and “after Scrum.” Scrum is that ground-breaking.  It already drives most of the world’s top technology companies. And now it’s starting to spread to every domain where leaders wrestle with complex projects.
 
If you’ve ever been startled by how fast the world is changing, Scrum is one of the reasons why. Productivity gains of as much as 1200% have been recorded, and there’s no more lucid – or compelling – explainer of Scrum and its bright promise than Jeff

13 Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul - Deepak Chopra
Auteur : Deepak Chopra
Genre : Spirituality
Deepak Chopra presents ten lessons to help build awareness and change the distorted energy patterns that are the root cause of aging, infirmity, and disease.

Fifteen years after his #1 New York Times bestseller, Ageless Body, Timeless Mind, Deepak Chopra revisits "the forgotten miracle"–the body's infinite capacity for change and renewal. You cannot take advantage of this miracle, Chopra says, unless you are willing to completely reinvent your body, transforming it from a material object to a dynamic, flowing process. "Your physical body is a fiction," Chopra contends. Every cell is made up of two invisible ingredients: awareness and energy.

Transformation can't stop with the body, however; it must involve the soul. The soul–seemingly invisible, aloof, and apart from the material world–actually creates the body. Only by going to the level of the

21 No Ego - Cy Wakeman
Auteur : Cy Wakeman
Genre : Management & Leadership
The New York Times bestselling author of Reality-Based Leadership rejects the current fad of "engaging" employees and the emotional drama of "meeting their needs"--returning leadership to leaders and productivity to businesses.

For years now, leaders in almost every industry have accepted two completely false assumptions--that change is hard, and that engagement drives results. Those beliefs have inspired expensive attempts to shield employees from change, involve them in high-level decision-making, and keep them happy with endless “satisfaction surveys” and workplace perks. But what these engagement programs actually do, Cy Wakeman says, is inflate expectations and sow unhappiness, leaving employees unprepared to adapt to even minor changes necessary to the organization’s survival. Rather than driving performance and creating efficiencies, these programs f

26 Increasing Personal Efficiency - Russell H. Conwell
Auteur : Russell H. Conwell
Genre : Psychology
Increasing Personal Efficiency is a book of Psychology. It tells that Some women may be superficial in education and accomplishments, extravagant in tastes, conspicuous in apparel, something more than self assured in bearing, devoted to trivialities, inclined to frequent public places. It is, nevertheless, not without cause that art has always shown the virtues in woman's dress, and that true literature teems with eloquent tributes and ideal pictures of true womanhood from Homer's Andromache to Scott's Ellen Douglas, and farther. While Shakespeare had no heroes, all his women except Ophelia are heroines, even if Lady Macbeth, Regan, and Goneril are hideously wicked. In the moral world, women are what flowers and fruit are in the physical. "The soul's armor is never well set to the heart until woman's hand has braced it; and it is only when she braces it loosely that the honor of manhood

In Willpower Doesn't Work, Benjamin Hardy explains that willpower is nothing more than a dangerous fad-one that is bound to lead to failure.

29 The Efficiency Paradox - Edward Tenner
Auteur : Edward Tenner
Genre : Business & Personal Finance
A bold challenge to our obsession with efficiency—and a new understanding of how to benefit from the powerful potential of serendipity.

Algorithms, multitasking, the sharing economy, life hacks: our culture can't get enough of efficiency. One of the great promises of the Internet and big data revolutions is the idea that we can improve the processes and routines of our work and personal lives to get more done in less time than we ever have before. There is no doubt that we're performing at higher levels and moving at unprecedented speed, but what if we're headed in the wrong direction?

Melding the long-term history of technology with the latest headlines and findings of computer science and social science, The Efficiency Paradox questions our ingrained assumptions about efficiency, persuasively showing how relying on the algorithms of digital platfor

The Conundrum
is a mind-changing manifesto about the environment, efficiency and the real path to sustainability.

Hybrid cars, fast trains, compact florescent light bulbs, solar panels, carbon offsets: Everything you've been told about living green is wrong. The quest for a breakthrough battery or a 100 mpg car are dangerous fantasies. We are consumers, and we like to consume green and efficiently. But David Owen argues that our best intentions are still at cross purposes to our true goal - living sustainably and caring for our environment and the future of the planet. Efficiency, once considered the holy grail of our environmental problems, turns out to be part of the problem. Efforts to improve efficiency and increase sustainable development only exacerbate the prob

Auteur : Jody Hoffer Gittell
Genre : Management & Leadership

49 The Science of Fitness - Madison Sira
Auteur : Madison Sira
Genre : Diet & Nutrition
In 2009, I became a first time member at my local gym. I didn’t really know what I was doing, and it was overwhelming yet empowering all the same to be surrounded by rows and rows of machines and weights. But again, I didn’t really know what I was doing, which at this point just seems characteristic of me. I could buy the most sophisticated computers, advanced cell phones, luxurious automobiles, and all the cool gadgets in the world- the one thing you can always count on me doing is flat out ignoring to read the instructions or owner’s manual- and you will never, ever catch me asking for help. I will bitch, moan, and cry all day long, but no thank you, I would never reach back into the trash to pull out the directions.

Auteur : Paolo Bruni, Maria Kroos Boisen, Gianmauro De Marchi & Franco Pinto
Genre : Computers
IBM® zEnterprise® Data Compression (zEDC) capability and the Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe or PCI Express) hardware adapter called zEDC Express were announced in July 2013 as enhancements to the IBM z/OS® V2.1 operating system (OS) and the IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) and the IBM zEnterprise BC12 (zBC12).

zEDC is optimized for use with large sequential files, and uses an industry-standard compression library. zEDC can help to improve disk usage and optimize cross-platform exchange of data with minimal effect on processor usage.

The first candidate for such compression was the System Management Facility (SMF), and support for basic sequential access method (BSAM) and queued sequential access method (QSAM) followed in first quarter 2014.
