The pursuit of happyness by Gabriele Muccino ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and German and held by 2,006 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chris Gardner is an intelligent, energetic guy who can't catch a break. In the sluggish Bay Area economy of 1981, he's losing ground, by investing all his family's money in high cost bone-density scanners. His wife leaves him, he loses his apartment, and with his 5-year-old son in tow joins the ranks of the homeless, if not the hopeless. Bounced from shelter to shelter, he finds himself a single dad who has to support and care for a young child. Impressing a Dean Witter higher-up by solving a Rubik's cube during a taxi ride, Chris gets a place in a stockbroker-training program. But internships don't pay, and there's no guarantee he'll be offered a job at the end of it. Against all odds, he pushes toward success, and eventually turns his life around

Balancing Government Risks with Contractor Incentives in Performance-Based Logistics Contracts by Chris Gardner ( )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The use of Performance-Based Logistics (PBL) as a sustainment strategy for weapon systems has been mandated by the Department of Defense (DoD) and largely embraced by acquisition and contracting professionals in both government and private industry. Despite its apparent success, there is an inherent conflict that DoD implementers of PBL often face: the PBL goal of developing long-term partnerships that encourage investment from commercial partners is best achieved through lengthy, guaranteed contracts -- but such contracts increase the DoD's risk in an environment that is intended to transfer more risk to the contractor. This research examines issues associated with the type and length of PBL contracts between DoD organizations and private industry. The thesis addresses the question of how the DoD can ideally balance PBL contracts to mitigate operational and financial risks while simultaneously building long-term partnerships that encourage investment from commercial contractors. The results reveal five main areas in which the government should focus its efforts to improve PBL implementation

A pesar de sus preocupaciones, Chris continúa cumpliendo sus obligaciones como padre y se muestra cariñoso y comprensivo, empleando el afecto y la confianza que su hijo ha depositado en él como incentivo para superar los obstáculos a los que se enfrenta."--Sitio web de HoyCinema
