What Every New Manager Needs to Know Making a Successful Transition to Management
What Every New Manager Needs to Know: Making a Successful Transition to Management By Gerard H. Gaynor
2003 | 256 Pages | ISBN: 081447179X | PDF | 3 MB
I read WHAT EVERY NEW MANAGER SHOULD KNOW: MAKING A SUCCESSFUL TRANSITION TO MANAGEMENT by Gerard H. (Gus) Gaynor so that I could evaluate it for use in a course I'm teaching next semester. Since one of my coures objectives is to switch the mindset of students from that of tacticians to that of managers, I thought this would be a good way to start. The book is an easy 229-page read, and with bulleted summaries and lists in larger type, the book is also easily scannable, especially for those who might read it "from the back" primarily (through indexed entries on specific topics).Gaynor begins the book with a likely scenario for the reader: YOU have just been promoted at your organization to head a team or division, and you have until Monday morning to prepare yourself for the work of a manager. He stresses that management is a profession, with necessary core knowledge areas and skills and abilities, just as is the speciality from which you were promoted. The chapters of the book include: 1. Getting Started as a Manager2. The Seven Management Hats3. Making the Critical People Decisions4. Managing Individual and Team Relationships5. Project Management6. Finding the Time and Doing the Work7. Leadership and Communications8. Thinking your Way to Success9. Measuring your Chances of Success10. Managing your CareerSeveral main ideas of Gaynor's focus on the ethical and people-oriented aspects of management. He states several times that managers do not manage people; they manage activities. Also, when writing about promotion and job assignments, he states that a manager can ruin someone's career by giving him or her the wrong assignment. Change agents aren't good at maintenance and vice-versa. If you give such a person responsibilities their natural talents don't lend themselves to, you could be dead-ending a perfectly good, contributing member of the organization. He also deals with leadership issues interestingly, and the notes sections at the end of each chapter offer other interesting reads, such as Senge's The Fifth Discipline and Henry Mintzberg's "The Manager's Job: Folklore and Fact," from the Harvard Business Review. I don't know that I will have my students read every chapter. The section on project management may be a little too detailed and contextual for students in a seminar, but I think the last chapter on self-assessment of managerial abilities is a good way to start them off on their consideration of their own strengths and weaknesses. I wished I had had this book when I first became the boss of people! It underscored some of my instincts (like never to be disrespectful to your employees) and provided sound reasoning for alternate points of view. If you want more applied knowledge for new managers, want to improve your management skills or want to teach a class for new managers, I recommend this book, published by the American Management Association. Gaynor, who lives in Minneapolis, worked as a manager for more than 24 years at 3M and now has his own consulting firm.

Computationalism New Directions
Computationalism: New Directions By Matthias Scheutz
2002 | 223 Pages | ISBN: 0262194783 | PDF | 2 MB
Classical computationalism--the view that mental states are computational states--has come under attack in recent years. Critics claim that in defining computation solely in abstract, syntactic terms, computationalism neglects the real-time, embodied, real-world constraints with which cognitive systems must cope. Instead of abandoning computationalism altogether, however, some researchers are reconsidering it, recognizing that real-world computers, like minds, must deal with issues of embodiment, interaction, physical implementation, and semantics. This book lays the foundation for a successor notion of computationalism. It covers a broad intellectual range, discussing historic developments of the notions of computation and mechanism in the computationalist model, the role of Turing machines and computational practice in artificial intelligence research, different views of computation and their role in the computational theory of mind, the nature of intentionality, and the origin of language.

Tree-kangaroos of Australia and New Guinea
Tree-kangaroos of Australia and New Guinea By Roger Martin
2005 | 169 Pages | ISBN: 064309072X | PDF | 4 MB
To many people, the suggestion that a kangaroo could live up a tree is fantasy. Yet, in the rainforests of far north Queensland and New Guinea, there are extraordinary kangaroos that do just that. Many aspects of their anatomy and biology (particularly their bipedal hopping ability) suggest a terrestrial kangaroo ancestor. Yet no one has, so far, come forward with a convincing explanation of how, why and when an animal that was so superbly adapted for life on the ground should end up back in the trees. This book reviews the natural history and biology of tree-kangaroos from the time of their first discovery by Europeans in the jungles of West Papua in 1846 right up to present day, covering the latest research being conducted in Australia and New Guinea. Combining information from a number of disparate disciplines, the author sets forth the first explanation of this apparent evolutionary conundrum.


Construction Economics A New Approach
Construction Economics: A New Approach By Danny Myers
2004 | 312 Pages | ISBN: 0415286395 | PDF | 3 MB
This book is pitched at the level of high school students rather than university students. There is no such thing as "construction economics" in relation to this text; it is merely applied price theory. The (limited) topics are covered briefly, and the macroeconomics portion is rather weak and uncritical. If you need to read economics, read basic texts written by professional economists.
