Der Gegenentwurf zum unproduktiven Unternehmensalltag Wenn ein Unternehmen erfolgreich sein will, benötigt es angeblich hoch bezahlte Direktoren, lange Meetings, ein großes Werbebudget, Fünfjahrespläne und vor allem ständiges Wachstum. So weit die Theorie. In der Praxis kommen die Software-Unternehmer Jason Fried und David Heinemeier Hansson schon seit 10 Jahren ohne all das aus – und haben Erfolg. Die Autoren repräsentieren eine zukunftsweisende Geschäftskultur, die dabei ist, die alten Konzern-Dinosaurier das Fürchten zu lehren. Smart sind die neuen Unternehmer, beweglich, unprätentiös und technisch auf der Höhe. Arbeit ist für sie kein Selbstzweck, und Lebensqualität gehört ebenso zum Business wie die unvermeidliche menschliche Unzulänglichkeit. Nüchtern und wirksam setzt sich „Rework“ von hochtrabenden Begriffen wie „Reform“ oder „Revolution“ ab. Entstanden ist eine ketzerische „Business-Bibel“, die keine Management-Phrasen herbetet, sondern Mut macht zu echter Eigenständigkeit. Zu Recht schrieb ein Rezensent: „Sie können dieses Buch ignorieren, aber auf eigene Gefahr“.

From the founders of the trailblazing software company 37signals, here is a different kind of business book - one that explores a new reality. Today, anyone can be in business. Tools that used to be out of reach are now easily accessible. Technology that cost thousands is now just a few pounds or even free. Stuff that was impossible just a few years ago is now simple. That means anyone can start a business. And you can do it without working miserable 80-hour weeks or depleting your life savings. You can start it on the side while your day job provides all the cash flow you need. Forget about business plans, meetings, office space - you don't need them. With its straightforward language and easy-is-better approach, Rework is the perfect playbook for anyone who's ever dreamed of doing it on their own. Hardcore entrepreneurs, small-business owners, people stuck in day jobs who want to get out, and artists who don't want to starve anymore will all find valuable inspiration and guidance in these pages. It's time to rework work.

It is time for a new conversation. Amid the biggest economic transformation in a century, the challenge of our time is to make sure that all Americans benefit from the wave of digital revolutions around the world that have permeated and upended modern life. Yet today's economic arguments seem stuck. We need a new vision of a hopeful future and a new action agenda. So many Americans are uncertain about the future. How can there be so many paths to opportunity with so few people traveling them? As a nation, we have to understand what is required to help Americans succeed now, and how to prepare our country for what comes next. We have been here before. A hundred years ago, America experienced the greatest economic transformation and technological revolution in its history. The transformation of the past twenty years—as the world has moved through the information era into the digital age—has turned our life and work upside down once again. It is a time of tremendous change but also of tremendous possibility. Rework America is a group of American leaders who know from experience the challenges we face—and the potential solutions. In America's Moment they suggest a practical agenda for an exciting future. It is illustrated by people who are already showing the way and includes actions Americans can take today in their own communities: preparing people to succeed, using the reach of the Internet and data to innovate jobs and to reach new markets all over the world, using technology to match employers and workers, and transitioning to a "no-collar" working world— neither blue collar nor white collar. Set against the history of how Americans succeeded once before in remaking their country, America's Moment is about the future. It describes how the same forces of change—technology and a networked world—can become tools that can open opportunity to everyone.

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Computer Science - Software, grade: 1, , course: MS in Project Management, language: English, abstract: This research quantified the role of the different factors of rework including project planning (PP), software requirements specifications document quality (SRSDQ), software testing (ST), software requirements management (SRM), software requirements traceability (SRT), maturity of software development life cycle (SDLC) approach (MSDLCA), changing requirements (CR) & scope creep (SC) with rework & project success (PS) using automated software requirements management tools (UseofSRMT). The underlying associations of the above factors of rework in SDLC and UseofSRMT with rework & PS were quantified through a survey conducted in the software houses. The study quantified the magnitude of rework which was increased/decreased by these factors of rework. The study also quantified the magnitude of PS increased/decreased by these factors of rework. This study concluded that UseofSRMT played a moderating role between factors of rework and PS. The study also quantified the mediating role of rework between the factors of rework & PS. The study contributed that rework was avoidable in SDLC. Major causes of unsuccessful software projects were determined. Most effective features of software requirements management tools (SRMT) were considered to determine their role as an effective methodology for PS. PS could never be guaranteed by just achieving project milestones/goals in terms of the triple constraints of time, budget & schedule.

Rita McLennon is a successful fashion industry executive cut from the same mold as Miranda Priestly (played by Meryl Streep) in "The Devil Wears Prada," whose domineering ways have left her unmarried. She represses the volatile mixture of emotions created when her sexual frustration is combined with a responsibility to discipline her nephew John. Getting John out of a scrape with the law however, provides the lead up to her introduction to a similar group of women - who have discovered how powerful an outlet dominating a man can be. About the Authors When it comes to the portrayal of erotic spanking, Ed Lee was the original trailblazer through his company Nu-West/Leda. Nu-West is the oldest and largest producer of spanking and corporal punishment related videos in the world. The company began in 1978 by selling photo sets and 8MM movies. Four years later they produced their first video, and now have over a thousand titles. No matter what your taste in discipline that involves a female, whether it is female submissive, female dominant, spanking, caning, strapping or whipping, you will find something that interests you in their huge collection of videos. Checkout their large selection of free video previews at: www.nu-westleda.com The Poser Artist is a relatively new author, who creates fantasy artwork and stories featuring traditional (M/F, F/M, F/F) corporal punishment carried out in authoritarian settings (prison, school, domestic) - where the characters act thinly oblivious to the inherent sexuality of administering discipline to a well shaped, submissively posed backside. For plausibility, the stories are set in time periods or places where such practices were (or are) a very much justified, accepted, and even encouraged norm - creating a "romance novel" effect with artwork that's neither too heavy (into the BDSM scene) nor too light (at the unicorns and roses end of the scale).

The worldwide trend toward lead-free components and soldering is especially urgent in the European Union with the implementation strict new standards in July 2006, and with pending implementation of laws in China and California. This book provides a standard reference guide for engineers who must meet the new regulations, including a broad collection of techniques for lead-free soldering design and manufacture, which up to now have been scattered in difficult-to-find scholarly sources.
