The silk road rediscovered : how Indian and Chinese companies are becoming globally stronger by winning in each other's markets by Anil K Gupta( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A road carte for Indian companies who want to do business in China. For almost every large Indian company, China has become mission critical as a market, a supplier, a source of low cost capital, a platform for global advantage, a partner, and a competitor. However, for most Indian executives, their understanding of China is rooted largely in myths. As a result, many Indian executives tend to assume either "if we can succeed in India, we can surely succeed in China" or "China is so different, there's no way we can make any headway there." This much-needed book provides an action-oriented resource for Indian companies to address the challenges and capture the opportunities that China represents. Building on the central premise that succeeding in China is neither impossible nor a cakewalk, this book is based on real-life case studies of several Indian companies who have been successful in China, including Tata Consulting Services, Tata Motors' Jaguar Land Rover subsidiary, Mahindra & Mahindra, NIIT, Sundaram Fasteners and others. It offers a timely guide for Indian companies that want to tap into the multi-faceted opportunities offered by China and is filled with case studies of several Indian companies that have made successful inroads in the Chinese marketplace. The authors are among the most respected and well-known experts on China and India. This book is a must-have guide for Indian companies that want to expand into the global marketplace.--

Decoding the new consumer mind : how and why we shop and buy by Kit Yarrow( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"A decade of swift and stunning change has profoundly affected the psychology of how, when, and why we shop and buy. In Decoding the New Consumer Mind, award-winning consumer psychologist Kit Yarrow shares surprising insights about the new motivations and behaviors of shoppers, taking marketers where they need to be today: into the deeply psychological and often unconscious relationships that people have with products, retailers, marketing communications, and brands. Drawing on hundreds of consumer interviews and shop-alongs, Yarrow reveals the trends that define our transformed behavior. For example, when we shop we show greater emotionality, hunting for more intense experiences and seeking relief and distraction online. A profound sense of isolation and individualism shapes the way we express ourselves and connect with brands and retailers. Neurological research even suggests that our brains are rewired, altering what we crave, how we think, and where our attention goes. Decoding the New Consumer Mind provides marketers with practical ways to tap into this new consumer psychology, and Yarrow shows how to combine technology and innovation to enhance brand image; win love and loyalty through authenticity and integrity; put the consumer's needs and preferences front and center; and deliver the most emotionally intense, yet uncomplicated, experience possible. Armed with Yarrow's strategies, marketers will be able to connect more effectively with consumers--driving profit and success across the organization."--Publisher's description

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

WHAT IS EFFECTIVE TEACHING? It s not enough to say I know it when I see it not when we re expecting so much more from students and teachers than in the past. To help teachers achieve greater success with their students we need new and better ways to identify and develop effective teaching. The Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) project represents a groundbreaking effort to find out what works in the classroom. With funding by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the MET project brought together leading academics, education groups, and 3,000 teachers to study teaching and learning from every angle. Its reports on student surveys, observations, and other measures have shaped policy and practice at multiple levels. This book shares the latest lessons from the MET project. With 15 original studies, some of the field s most preeminent experts tap the MET project s unprecedented collection of data to offer new insights on evaluation methods and the current state of teaching in our schools. As feedback and evaluation methods evolve rapidly across the country, Designing Teacher Evaluation Systems is a must read and timely resource for those working on this critical task
