Planning the Impossible Book Excerpt:

International airports have become an inherent part of many urban regions and key transport infrastructures for metropolitan economies. Yet they are also a source of tensions, often associated with the contrasting impacts of their operation. Taking the example of Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG) in Paris, the author analyzes the factors influencing urban development and the related spatial strategies. Step by step, she traces the history of the airport, examines prominent conflicts and their management by planners, and derives broader lessons. Intended for town planners, policy makers, and urban designers, the book makes an important contribution to understanding the challenges and assessing the effectiveness of planning approaches for airport regions.

Leadership and Cultural Change Book Excerpt:

Contemporary confluences of leadership decision-making and citizenship behavior often unintentionally contribute to the depletion of the world’s resources – escalating health, education, and social crises, as well as community, societal, and cultural struggles – to adapt to emerging global shifts. Leadership and management practices in this context affect the wellbeing of organizational members (e.g., their safety, health, financial security, etc.) but also entail positive or negative impacts on consumer practices and collective community well-being (e.g., education, obesity, cancer, safe or green driving, energy conservation, diversity based health care, etc.). Decision-making in most businesses and organizations is largely responsive to demands for short-term profit or cost minimization. On the consumer side, both cultural values and the corporate marketing practices that sustain them encourage high levels of consumption necessary to sustain corporate practices. In exploring the emerging applications of behavior science to these challenges, this book showcases emerging work by internationally recognized scholars on leadership and cultural change. The book will aid organizations and leaders in creating new models of stewardship, and will open opportunities for innovation while adapting and responding to growing social upheaval, technological advances, and environmental concerns, as well as crises in the global economy, health, education, and environment. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Organizational Behavior Management.

Aviation Investment Book Excerpt:

Aviation Investment uniquely addresses investment appraisal methods across the key industries that make up the aviation sector, including the airports, air traffic management, airline and aircraft manufacturing – or aeronautic – industries. This practice-oriented book presents methods through realistic case studies. It covers both economic appraisal, or cost-benefit analysis, measuring the value of projects to society, and financial appraisal, valuing projects as cash generators. This substantially expanded second edition covers in greater detail the treatment of environmental emissions, paying particular attention to climate change. It addresses the treatment of Market-Based Mechanisms (MBMs), including cap and trade systems like ETS and offset systems like CORSIA, and compares them to environmental taxes. It also addresses the adjustments needed to measure the foreign exchange generating value of projects, relevant in the presence of trade barriers. The new edition includes two new project types. One is airport relocations, perhaps the most complex type of airport projects, where the economic case is often more nuanced than may be apparent. The second is the re-introduction of supersonic travel. Aviation Investment offers all aviation sub-sectors a single-source reference, bringing together the theoretical background of the economic appraisal literature and aviation investment in practice. It is written in a style that is accessible to non-academic professionals, using formulae only where strictly necessary to enable practical applications, and benefits from the substantial practical experience of the author.
