Team of teams : new rules of engagement for a complex world by Stanley A McChrystal( Book )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in Japanese and English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As commander of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), General Stanley McChrystal discarded a century of management wisdom and pivoted from a pursuit of mechanical efficiency to organic adaptability. In this book, he shows how any organization can make the same transition to act like a team of teams - where small groups combine the freedom to experiment with a relentless drive to share their experience. Drawing on a wealth of evidence from his military career and sources as diverse as hospital emergency rooms and NASA's space program, McChrystal frames the existential challenge facing today's organizations, and presents a compelling, effective solution

Team of Teams : New Rules of Engagement for a Complex World by Stanley A McChrystal( Recording )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When General Stanley McChrystal took command of the Joint Special Operations Task Force in 2004, he realized that conventional military tactics were failing. Al Qaeda in Iraq moved quickly, striking ruthlessly, then seemingly vanishing into the local population. The allied forces had a huge advantage in numbers, equipment, and training--but none of that seemed to matter. To defeat Al Qaeda in Iraq, the Task Force would have to acquire the enemy's speed and flexibility. Was there a way to combine the power of the world's mightiest military with the agility of the world's most fearsome terrorist network? If so, could the same principles apply in civilian organizations? Discarding conventional wisdom, McChrystal and his colleagues remade the Task Force into something new: a network that combined extremely transparent communication with decentralized decision-making authority. Leaders looked at the best practices of the smallest units and found ways to extend them to thousands of people on three continents. The Task Force became a "team of teams"--faster, flatter, more flexible--and beat back Al Qaeda

Giants' first steps( Visual )

"The twenty-five films collected here represent the first steps of many of the most acclaimed directors working in animation today. While some of these early efforts are tentative experiments -- exploring what could be done with specific techniques or new technologies -- others are complete stories, already reflecting the director's narrative sensibility and personal perspective."--Container
The secular activist : a how-to manual for protecting the wall between church and state by Dan Arel( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are you interested in preserving the constitutional principle of church-state separation? Do you think a secular system is the only way to ensure freedom of religion and conscience for all? Do you want creationism out of classrooms, religious dogma out of health care, sectarian prayers out of government meetings, and taxpayer funding out of "faith-based" initiatives and programs that promote religious indoctrination? Think there's not much you can do about it? If so, as secular writer and activist Dan Arel demonstrates in word and deed, think again. Drawing on his experience fighting to keep $18 million in taxpayer money out of the construction of the Noah's Ark theme park in Kentucky, Arel makes clear that the only way to stop the Religious Right's assault on the wall separating church and state is for each of us to be active and vocal. He offers pragmatic lessons and guidance for protecting secularism, whether by raising awareness on social media, protesting in the public square, or knocking on doors in government corridors. Sharing not only his story but also the stories of other secular activists, he offers an inspirational and forceful call to action. For those who are waiting for others to stand up against antisecular forces, he reminds that each of us can make an individual difference--and that ultimately we must be the wall separating church and state"--
