Beyond Management by Objectives
A management classic indeed, reissued and updated because it is simply the best concise guide to what happens when an organization installs and commits itself to a management-by-objectives system. Written by one of the best-selling management experts (J. D. Batten's 'Tough-Minded Management' has sold over 100,000 copies, and his various other titles have also reached very wide audiences) this book presents practical advice, techniques, guidelines, checklists, and action plans to help managers learn the art of motivation. Today's manager is a leader who recognizes that pushing and repressing employees are counterproductive to achieving an organization's goals. What is needed is a positive climate in which MBO can operate successfully. The personal involvement of each employee is essential to the all-out effort of the company, and it is this personal commitment to meet challenges that brings the organization's goals to life. Mr. Batten shows how MBO can be used to bring about a climate of productiveness and profitability. He lays out a seven-phase process that includes practical, results-oriented advice designed to make any MBO program a success.

Beyond Strategic Vision
Hoshin is a system which was developed in Japan in the 1960's, and is a derivative of Management By Objectives (MBO). It is a Management System for determining the appropriate course of action for an organization, and effectively accomplishing the relevant actions and results. Having recognized the power of this system, Beyond Strategic Vision tailors the Hoshin system to fit the culture of North American and European organizations. It is a "how-to" guide to the Hoshin method for executives, managers, and any other professionals who must plan as part of their normal job. The management of an organization, whether it be large or small, has as one of its principal responsibilities setting the direction of the organization for the future. The most effective way to set the future direction is to develop a shared vision of what the organization will be in the future, contrast it to the way the organization is now, and then to create a plan for bridging the gap: the Strategic Plan. Beyond Strategic Vision shows you how to do this effectively and efficiently. Michael Cowley has been a teacher and practitioner of management and strategic planning methodologies since 1972.

Technology has made it possible to apply a new management philosophy. Leaders can let go and still be in control. They can involve key people without losing momentum. Companies can consistently measure organizational capability over time, and accurately benchmark 'soft' management areas, and a virtual CEO office really does work. Founded on three key insights (the operating arena; managing by pull and push; and the web-based dialogue centre), Beyond Control offers a revolutionary model for shifting the management focus from structured control to guided interaction. Using this approach companies can build a participative operating system that creates space for managers to excel, and avoids the unpleasant surprises that can lead to corporate scandals.
Further Advances in Project Management
Projects are ubiquitous to modern society, yet, concerns around successful delivery, value realisation, resilience and making change stick force a significant re-evaluation of the scope and extent of the ‘normal’ project discourse. The common thread for all of this is around capabilities, skills, attitudes, values and perspectives that are needed for successful delivery and the sustained realisation of interest, relationships, benefit, value and impact. The chapters collated in this volume bring together leading authorities on topics that are relevant to the management, leadership, governance and delivery of projects. Topics include people, communication, ethics, change management, value realisation, benefits, complexity, decision-making, project assurance, communication, knowledge management, big data, project requirements, business architecture, stakeholder engagement, strategy, users, systems thinking and resilience. The main aims of the collection are to reflect on the state of practice within the discipline; to propose new extensions and additions to good practice; to offer new insights and perspectives; to distil new knowledge; and to provide a way of sampling a range of the most promising ideas, perspectives and styles of writing from some of the leading thinkers and practitioners in the discipline.

He then examines the need of organizations to improve safety performance, discusses why such performance improvement can be achieved through a continuous safety process, as distinguished from a safety program, and provides the practical tools you can use to build personal responsibility in your workplace.
