      Hitting the Wall

      by Carol Talbot

      Have you ever felt like you've hit a brick wall, a roadblock or barrier? Or that you're just going around in circles? Have you ever said to yourself "I wish I knew what I wanted," "What should I do next?" or "Why is this happening to me?" Whatever your 'wall,' HITTING THE WALL offers you three new ways to break through that wall so YOU can find your way forward. Successful people make choices of how to approach the brick wall - tunnelling through, breaking through or climbing over - because they know that on the other side lies a garden of opportunity and the wall really is an opportunity that helps you tap into your creativity and find new ways forward to get what you really want in life. Is that wall really an obstacle or is it a really a chance for you to learn and grow and learn how to deal with life in a more effective way? The choice is yours. It's your wall It's your journey It's your choice of the way through And you can choose the perfect way for you.

      A compendium of Business Continuity case studies

      by Robert A Clark

      In this book, the authors analyse the causes of some of the major disasters from the last thirty years and explain what could have been done better, before and after the event. Unlike many titles on business continuity and disaster recovery, In Hindsight: A compendium of Business Continuity case studies does not build up from the theory of business continuity planning. Instead, it takes apart real events such as Hurricane Katrina, the terrorist attacks in London, Madrid and Glasgow, and the collapse of Barings Bank, revealing the themes that contributed to each.

      Travel Fast or Smart?

      A Manifesto for an Intelligent Transport Policy

      by Metz, David

      Britain does not have a coherent transport policy, and conventional transport economics has reached a dead end. A transport policy should incorporate systematic thinking about the travel needs of society, but in Britain public investment in the transport system has been extraordinarily volatile. We closed underused railways and then experienced a doubling of passenger numbers, prompting huge new investment. We gave up making substantial investments in motorways, but we have now chosen to revive the road construction effort in a big way. We vacillate on road pricing, introducing congestion charging successfully in London but backing off elsewhere because of local opposition. We have delayed the decision about whether and where to build additional airport capacity for decades. This mess has come about because policy has focused on big construction projects and time savings when it should have been focusing on the part that people and places play in economic development. This book sets out the principles that could underpin a strategic policy for transport. Instead of focusing piecemeal on getting from place to place ever faster, we need to think about how and where we want the economy to develop, and about how new digital technologies can help us achieve what is needed.

      The Book A1

      Policy Management and Decision Making

      by Stuart Cole

      This third edition of Applied Transport Economics has been completely revised and updated to cover the latest developments and thinking in transport economics. Professor Stuart Cole examines the application of economics techniques first to commercial transport operations, and second to public policy issues such as investment, integrated transport and competition, and third to the role of transport in its wider economic context. The style and approach, which proved so popular in the first two editions has been retained. This approach provides a transport economics text book for a) managers who are not familiar with economics techniques, b) students preparing for examinations in transport and other areas of business and public policy where an applied approach to economics is required, and c) economists entering the transport field. Fully and extensively updated throughout, this third edition will contain: *new information on SE Asia and Eastern Europe *updated and extended case studies *a new bibliography; *an extended further reading section.

      From Returns Management to the Circular Economy

      by Mike Bernon, John Cullen, Jonathan Gorst

      While reverse logistics has always been an important part of the supply chain, its importance has grown substantially in the past few years. This has been driven by: increasingly generous returns policies, growing legislation on product disposal, evermore global supply chains, rising consumer social responsibility and awareness of the cost-saving potential. Moreover, research from Cranfield School of Management shows that companies can reduce costs by 20-40% by using reverse logistics techniques. In The Handbook of Reverse Logistics, Mike Bernon, John Cullen and Jonathan Gorst cover all the key issues in reverse logistics, including: reducing the level of returns; developing effective product return networks; options for product disposal that maximize asset recovery; and sustainable distribution. There is a dedicated chapter on circular supply chains. The book also features a valuable self-assessment audit tool for reverse logistics and is full of international case studies.
