On the High Wire Book Excerpt:

The purpose of the work/life balance series is to highlight particular challenges that higher education faculty face as they participate in the demands of the academy and try to prevent those demands from invading their personal lives. On The High Wire looks at a specific subset of university faculty, education faculty with school-aged children, and the specific professional/personal balance these faculty need to find. The title On the High Wire suggests the precarious nature of the “walk” for education faculty who are parents of school-aged children. We know that our identities are central to how we experience the world and how the world reacts to us. This reality is clearly visible in this book. These multiple identities and roles come into conflict at multiple points and in different ways. This book explores these identities and roles through autoethnographic accounts written by varied education faculty in order to make these tensions visible for the field to address.

Envisioning the Future of Learning for Creativity Innovation and Entrepreneurship Book Excerpt:

Successful entrepreneurs and innovators are skilled at understanding the next wave of trends. But how can teachers and trainers stay current and address the dynamic opportunities of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship (CIE) teaching and training? This book outlines the work and findings of the Erasmus+ VISION research project into the future of education for CIE. The VISION team was comprised of 14 partners including universities, companies and research institutions who conducted an extensive research project over a two-year period (2020-2021). The VISION partners gained insights from multiple experts around the world through more than 130 interviews and 9 workshops on the future shifts that impact a number of areas including: the future of work, digitalisation, social innovation and creative learning. These have been synthesised, shared, and refined to provide a view of how the training of CIE will evolve over the next decade. This book focuses on four major findings from the VISION project: Learning becomes more of an immersive, experimental experience. It takes place in more creative spaces, focuses on the big challenges and is supported by new tech. The impact of learning within the 'real-world' is prioritised and amplified. Learning is redesigned to put the student, not the system, more at the centre. Better, personalised, unbundled learning includes more peer-to-peer and hybrid experiences. Assessing impact at the individual level from multiple learning sources is key. There is a rise in on the job education and learning by doing as part of life-long upskilling. Much of this occurs in a digital context with innovative financing. Project-based learning, reskilling and upskilling are at the fore. Teachers cease to be content-sources as they become more flexible, act as coaches and mentors and increasingly support the development of both hard and soft skills. New teacher competencies are prioritised with a wider supporting toolkit. Envisioning the Future of Learning for Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship will provide invaluable insights into the future of education in CIE.

The Future of Management Book Excerpt:

What fuels long-term business success? Not operational excellence, technology breakthroughs, or new business models, but management innovation—new ways of mobilizing talent, allocating resources, and formulating strategies. Through history, management innovation has enabled companies to cross new performance thresholds and build enduring advantages. In The Future of Management, Gary Hamel argues that organizations need management innovation now more than ever. Why? The management paradigm of the last century—centered on control and efficiency—no longer suffices in a world where adaptability and creativity drive business success. To thrive in the future, companies must reinvent management. Hamel explains how to turn your company into a serial management innovator, revealing: The make-or-break challenges that will determine competitive success in an age of relentless, head-snapping change. The toxic effects of traditional management beliefs. The unconventional management practices generating breakthrough results in “modern management pioneers.” The radical principles that will need to become part of every company’s “management DNA.” The steps your company can take now to build your “management advantage.” Practical and profound, The Future of Management features examples from Google, W.L. Gore, Whole Foods, IBM, Samsung, Best Buy, and other blue-ribbon management innovators.

The number of chapters has been reduced from 12 to 10 so it is easy to adapt to almost any course or training on the subject in any discipline or to any audience. This exceptionally informative book provides a broad perspective on how technological change can be effectively managed in modern organizations. The text explains the conceptual frameworks supported by new and original case studies for start-up companies like Askmen.com, the complex challenges of managing international technology-based companies like NexPress (a joint venture of Kodak and Heidelberg) in the digital printing industry, and corporate sustainability using innovative new product technologies illustrated by the case of Evinrude’s launch of the E-tec® outboard motor. John E. Ettlie's three decades in the field of innovation as an instructor and researcher bring an exceptional perspective to this subject. His text is unique in its discussion of how technology has transformed the service sector. Few books on technology make the distinction between new offerings in manufacturing and the service sector which is emphasized in this text.

This is the first book that looks at how offices and officemarkets in cities have changed over the last 30 years. Itanalyses the long-term trends and processes within office markets,and the interaction with the spatial economy and the planning ofcities. It draws on examples around the world, and lookingforward at the future consequences of information communicationtechnologies and the sustainability agenda, it sets out thechallenges that now face investors. The traditional business centres of cities are losing theirdominance to the brash new centres of the 1980s and 1990s, as theconcept of the central business district becomes morediffuse. Edge cities, business space and office parks haveentered the vocabulary as offices have also decentralised. The nature and pace of changes to office markets set withinevolving spatial structures of cities has had implications fortenants and led to a demand for shorter leases. Theconsequence is a rethink of the traditional perception of propertyinvestment as a secure long term investment, and this is reflectedin reduced investment holding periods by financialinstitutions. Office Markets & Public Policy analyses theseprocesses and policy issues from an international perspective andcovers: A descriptive and theoretical base encompassing an historicalcontext, a review of the fundamentals of the demand for and supplyof the office market and offices as an investment. Embeddedwithin this section is a perspective on underlying forcesparticularly the influence of technological change. A synthesis of our understanding of the spatial structure anddynamics of local office markets at the city level. An assessment of the goals and influence of planning policies,and the evaluation of policies designed toward the long termsustainability of cities as services centres. This goes beyond standard real estate and urban economics booksby assessing the changing shape of urban office markets within aspatial theoretical and policy context. It will be a usefuladvanced text for honours and postgraduate students of landeconomy; land management; property and real estate; urban planning;and urban studies.

Grand Challenges for Social Work and Society Book Excerpt:

The Grand Challenges for Social Work Initiative (GCSWI), which is spearheaded by the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare (AASWSW), represents a major endeavor for the entire field of social work. GCSWI calls for bold innovation and collective action powered by proven and evolving scientific interventions to address critical social issues facing society. The purpose of GCSWI was modeled after the National Academy of Engineering, which aimed to identify some of the most persistent engineering problems of the day and then put the attentions, energies, and funding of the entire field to work on them for a decade. The GCSWI does the same for social issues, tackling problems such as homelessness, social isolation, mass incarceration, family violence, and economic inequality. Grand Challenges for Social Work and Society is an edited book that will present the foundations of the GCSWI, laying out the start of the initiative and providing summaries of each of the twelve challenges. The 12 main chapters that form the core of the book, one on each of the dozen Grand Challenges, are written by the primary research teams who are driving each GC project.
