Book Description :

Although most federal facilities projects are successfully completed (i.e., they reasonably meet the agency's requirements and expectations), the perception is that development of the scope of work for design for these projects is challenging and in some cases poorly performed. Based on this perception, a study was commissioned by the Federal Facilities Council (FFC) of the National Research Council to identify the elements that should be included in a scope of work for design to help ensure that the resulting facility is one that supports the fulfillment of a federal agency's program or mission. Its objectives also included identifying key practices for developing effective scopes of work for design involving new construction or major renovation projects and identifying key practices for matching the scope of work with the acquisition strategy, given a range of project delivery systems and contract methods.

Book Description :

Designed to allow teachers immersed in Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) programs and those still contemplating increasing the use of writing in their courses to peer into classrooms of those who have participated in such programs for years, this book reports on the long-term impact upon faculty of WAC programs. The book studies WAC programs--collecting interviews, questionnaires, classroom observations, student evaluations, and course documents from more than 700 faculty, 1-15 years after their first WAC experiences. In the study reported in this book, the focus is in trying to understand how faculty members themselves construct the meaning of their WAC experiences. The book finds that faculty used the same criteria for adopting WAC strategies as for rejecting them--whether the strategy (1) created community in the classroom; (2) enhanced learning; (3) was feasible; and (4) fit the faculty members' priorities and teaching style. The book offers detailed examinations of the WAC programs at the University of Cincinnati (Ohio), Towson State University (Maryland), and Whitworth College (Washington). The voices of faculty members presented in the book come from departments of geography, nursing, criminal justice, math, music, and international business. Appendixes provide questionnaire responses.

While the concept of Global Account Management (GAM) is not new, there are numerous differences, both subtle and overt, between it and the conventional management of overseas accounts. So what are the differences? How should we define GAM? And how can companies ensure that their global accounts are managed successfully? These are just some of the many key issues addressed in Successful Global Account Management. Drawing on the finding of a number of international research projects, as well as their own experience as practitioners and consultants, the authors unravel the complexities of GAM. They introduce a wide range of case examples that clearly illustrate how many of the world's leading companies have addressed the challenges inherent in GAM. They also provide models, processes and implementation guidelines that will give any manager unique insights into all the major themes and issues directly related to achieving GAM effectiveness, including: - What is a global account manager - How to set up and manage a global program and team - Negotiating global agreements - Managing global supply chains - Leveraging knowledge - Reconciling global/local interests - Putting the GAM strategy into practice Successful Global Account Management will provide any manager responsible for implementing a GAM program with a range of tools for success.
