Light Footprint Management: Leadership in Times of Change
What can managers in todays uncertain, unimaginably complex world learn from President Obamas military doctrine and Chinese management style? Charles-Edouard Bouee proposes the adoption of "light footprint" management - comparable to President Barack Obamas military doctrine and similar to the recent emergence of vision and tactics over strategy in Chinese management. Bouee argues that this shift in approach blazes a trail that Western companies will be obliged to follow, and explains how conventional management methodologies, techniques and tools can be adapted to the conditions of an increasingly ambiguous and apparently unmanageable world. Light Footprint Management sets out a road-map for the transformation of companies into adaptable, post-strategic business organisations.

The Future of Work: How the New Order of Business Will Shape Your Organization, Your Management Style, and Your Life, Hardcover
For more than a decade, business thinkers have theorized about how technology will change the shape of organizations. In this landmark book, renowned organizational theorist Thomas Malone, codirector of MITs ``Inventing the Organizations of the 21st Century`` initiative, provides the first credible model for actually designing the company of the future. Based on 20 years of groundbreaking research, The Future of Work foresees a workplace revolution that will dramatically change organizational structures and the roles employees play in them. Technological and economic forces make ``command and control`` management increasingly less useful. In its place will be a more flexible ``coordinate and cultivate`` approach that will spawn new types of decentralized organizations--from internal markets to democracies to loose hierarchies. These future structures will reap the scale and knowledge efficiencies of large organizations while enabling the freedom, flexibility, and human values that drive smaller firms. This book explores the skills managers will need in a workplace in which the power to decide belongs to everyone.

Dont Read This Book: Time Management for Creative People, Paperback
Most of our ideas never see the light of day. Why? If you ask a creative person, the answer will always revolve around time. Dont Read This Book focuses on how to make choices about everything you do in your daily creative practice and life. Its not about a minimalist way to spend and organize your creative time as Hemingway with twitter, its not even to be as synthetic as you can in your to-do lists so that procrastination is taken into consideration without provoking late afternoon regrets. Its about too many characters in this sentence as there isnt time for everything. Its actually Less = Less. To Do Lists are actually too many times a naive knowledge about yourself (birthday and new year resolutions are a painful reminder of this reality). The main message of this book is Focus. It connects the decisions you make at a personal, professional and creative level. Its a reminder of how management of time is essential to complete your project and how being dispersed around too many ideas can make you lose time.

Time Management
„De mii de ani oamenii se intreaba daca exista viata dupa moarte. Intrebarea lumii moderne pare sa fie daca exista viata inainte de moarte. Asta pentru ca multi dintre noi suntem atat de prinsi cu activitatile si problemele de serviciu, incat nu mai avem timp pentru alte lucruri cel putin la fel de importante, pentru unii familia, pentru altii o anumita pasiune, pentru noi toti sanatatea. In lumea de azi, a vitezei, a informatiei si a tehnologiei, daca nu suntem atenti, putem deveni fara sa ne dam seama victime ale obiectivelor altora sau ale nimanui si urmaritori ai succeselor altora, pierzand din vedere lucrurile importante pentru noi. Desigur ca avem nevoie de un serviciu, este o nevoie interioara a fiecaruia de a se realiza intr-un plan profesional. Acest plan profesional insa a ajuns sa ne domine viata si timpul mai mult decat ne-am dori. Cursul de Time Management pe care il asculti se bazeaza pe experienta de peste 30 de ani in lumea intreaga a companiei de training si consultanta TMI si isi propune sa iti ofere idei si tehnici prin care sa-ti poti atinge obiectivele profesionale cu o mai buna productivitate si sa gasesti timpul necesar si pentru alte preocupari importante din viata ta." - Octavian Pantis, managing director TMI Romania
