SYNOPSIS : Senior experts within the Toyota Production System often draw simple maps when on the shop floor. These maps show the current physical flow of a product family and the information flow for that product family as the wind through a complex facility making many products. Much more important, these simple maps - often drawn on scrap paper - show where steps can be eliminated, flows smoothed, and pull systems introduced in order to create a truly lean value stream for each product family. In 1998 John Shook and Mike Rother of the University of Michigan wrote down Toyota's mapping methodology for the first time in Learning to See. This simple tool makes it possible for you to see through the clutter of a complex plant. You'll soon be able to identify all of the processing steps along the path from raw materials to finished goods for each product and all of the information flows going back from the customer through the plant and upstream to suppliers. In plain language and with detailed drawings, this workbook explains everything you will need to create accurate current state and future state maps for each of your product families and then to turn the current state into the future state rapidly and sustainably.

SYNOPSIS : "The ability to facilitate learning is perhaps the teacher's most awesome task. How do teachers release the great potential of learners and organize teaching so as to satisfy both pupils' aspirations and societal requirements?" "Writing from years of experience - as a teacher, headteacher and local authority adviser - the author's main theme is that, as well as instruction and practice, learners need the skills and the opportunities to reflect deliberately on the process of learning itself. They need to know how the mind copes with information, about the techniques of memorizing and recalling data, the problems of forgetting and not quite understanding, the planning of complex tasks and the careful preparation and organization needed to get things done." "Drawing from significant writers and thinkers in the area, the author has written a book which is thought-provoking, absorbing and extremely practical."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

SYNOPSIS : Focusing upon the importance of curriculum and instruction in South African secondary schools, this monograph emerges from concern over the changing role of the school principal and the core functions of the school. While principals are increasingly taking on a wide range of administrative and financial responsibilities, the primary concern still lies with their leadership of teaching and learning. Both internationally and locally, there is growing emphasis on the importance of effective school management in contributing to student achievement. The first study of its kind in South Africa, this survey considers a sample of 200 schools in two provinces. Through a series of regression analyses, it presents a variety of management factors identified across a wide range of schools, identifying the most crucial elements for the improved performance of students.

SYNOPSIS : Abstract : Freshwaters are being transformed by multiple environmental drivers, creating uncertainty about future conditions. One way of coping with uncertainty is to manage for resilience to unanticipated events while facilitating learning through adaptive management. We outline the application of these strategies to freshwater recreational fisheries management using a case study in Wisconsin, USA, where black bass (Micropterus spp.) populations are increasing, while Walleye ( Sander vitreus ) populations are decreasing. Managing for heterogeneity in functional groups (e.g., age classes and prey species of sport fishes), fishery objectives, and regulations can increase resilience, although heterogeneity must be balanced with replication to facilitate learning. Monitoring designed to evaluate management objectives and inform about critical uncertainties, when combined with heterogeneity, creates opportunities for adaptive management, another critical resilience strategy. Although barriers exist to implementing resilience strategies, management designed to accommodate uncertainty and illuminate its consequences is needed to maintain critical fisheries in a rapidly changing world.

SYNOPSIS : A practical, real-world training manual for mid-level management Managing to Make a Difference presents a leadership guide for those in the middle. The C-suite has a wealth of resources for leadership guidance, but middle managers face a quandary: often given little guidance on how to excel, they are also under enormous pressure to do a variety of things other than "lead." This book provides much-needed tools and techniques for building a high-performing teamβ€”without letting your other duties suffer. Organized around a coherent philosophy and based on solid research, the discussion offers a roadmap to engagement, talent development, and excellence in management. From difficult situations and organizational challenges to everyday motivation and inspiration, these techniques help middle managers achieve the goals of their organization while empowering their workers to achieve their own. Talent development is probably not your full-time jobβ€”yet it drives the engagement that results in high performance. This book shows you how to hit the "sweet spot" of middle management, with a host of tools and strategies to help you help your team shine. Motivate, inspire, and lead your team with confidence Manage through challenges and overcome obstacles Develop key talent and maintain high engagement Adopt practical management tools based on substantiated research Most organizations direct the majority of their development resources to the C-suite, but still expect their mid-level managers to attract, engage, retain, and develop talent; but successfully juggling everyday duties while maintaining team performance and leading around roadblocks leaves little room for management planning. Managing to Make a Difference offers the solution in the form of tools, techniques, and practical strategy for a high performing team.
