Re-engineering your business by Daniel Morris( Book )

31 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in 5 languages and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's no secret that in order to succeed - or even survive - American businesses need to make fundamental changes in the way they're run. The thinking used to be that automation alone was the answer. Judging from this country's slippage in the increasingly competitive global marketplace, that idea was obviously off the mark. Why? Because automating organizational structures and processes that were inefficient in the first place is akin to getting power windows installed in a car that needs an engine overhaul. Clearly, the time is ripe for re-engineering. It's one of the most talked-about topics in offices and on factory floors throughout the country today. It's gaining momentum as the way to reduce costs, improve time to market, enhance customer satisfaction, and boost sales incredibly, all at the same time. But, while most everyone recognizes the need for re-engineering, and its vast potential, hardly anyone has a clue about how to make it happen in his or her own company. This groundbreaking book offers the first detailed explanations of the whats, whys, and hows of business reengineering for managers at all levels in any kind of company. Written by two acknowledged re-engineering experts, and as comprehensive as it is pragmatic, Re-engineering Your Business shows you how to build a model of your current business, analyze it, and use it to design new processes and organizational structures; take into account the differing needs of individual departments, and delineate their roles in the re-engineering process; position your business to react to changing conditions and challenges in the marketplace; create a built-in capacity for ongoing change - and make change the friend, not the foe, of management and workers; cultivate an environment that expects and rewards not just quality assurance, but "quality initiative"; implement the new business operation and organizational structure while minimizing any sense of uncertainty in the workplace; and alter technological systems so that they support the new structure. You'll also find numerous examples and illustrations throughout the book which are drawn from the authors' actual experience. The steps described in Re-engineering Your Business are not merely unproven theories. They have already yielded quantifiable results for some of the most forward-thinking companies in the nation. What's more, many people are of the opinion that, in the near future, there will be two types of businesses: those that re-engineered, and those that failed. All you need to get started are a willingness to effect fundamental changes in outdated "business-as-usual" practices ... and the step-by-step guidance, bold prescriptions, and real-world insights contained in this remarkable book

Lyric encounters : essays on American poetry from Lazarus and Frost to Ortiz Cofer and Alexie by Daniel Morris( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new survey of twentieth-century U.S. poetry that places a special emphasis on poets who have put lyric poetry in dialogue with other forms of creative expression, including modern art, the novel, jazz, memoir, and letters. Contesting readings of twentieth-century American poetry as hermetic and narcissistic, Morris interprets the lyric as a scene of instruction and thus as a public-oriented genre. American poets from Robert Frost to Sherman Alexie bring aesthetics to bear on an exchange that asks readers to think carefully about the ethical demands of reading texts as a reflection of how we
Not born digital : poetics, print literacy, new media by Daniel Morris( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Not Born Digital addresses from multiple perspectives - ethical, historical, psychological, conceptual, aesthetic - the vexing problems and sublime potential of disseminating lyrics, the ancient form of transmission and preservation of the human voice, in an environment in which e-poetry and digitalized poetics pose a crisis (understood as opportunity and threat) to traditional page poetry. The premise of Not Born Digital is that the innovative contemporary poets studied in this book engage obscure and discarded, but nonetheless historically resonant materials to unsettle what Charles Bernstein, a leading innovative contemporary U.S. poet and critic of "official verse culture," refers to as "frame lock" and "tone jam." While other scholars have begun to analyze poetry that appears in new media contexts, Not Born Digital concerns the ambivalent ways page poets (rather than electronica based poets) have grappled with "screen memory" (that is, electronic and new media sources) through the re-purposing of "found" materials"--
Reading texts, reading lives : essays in the tradition of humanistic cultural criticism in honor of Daniel R. Schwarz( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our culture attempts to separate competing ideological factions by denying relationships between multiple perspectives and influences outside of one's own narrow interpretive community. The distinguished essayists in this volume find Daniel R. Schwarz's pluralistic, self-questioning approach to what he calls "reading texts and reading lives" quite relevant to the current historical moment and political situation. A legendary scholar of modernist literature, Schwarz's critical principles are a healthy corrective to cultural hubris. The essayists treat works ranging from fictions by Joyce, Conrad, Morrison, and Woolf to the poetry to Yeats, to Holocaust literature, to the environmental writings of Wendell Berry, to the photographs of Lee Friedlander. The authors focus on different works, but they follow Schwarz in stressing formal elements most often associated with traditional realism while keeping an eye on historical and author-centered approaches. The essayists also follow Schwarz in their emphasis on narrative cohesion and in how they look for signs of agency among characters who possess the will to alter their fate, even in a seemingly random universe such as the one depicted by Conrad. Readers with eyes to ethics and aesthetics, they follow Schwarz in encouraging a values-centered approach that leaves room for the reader to address the ways in which reading a text correlates to the reader's ability to find meaning and value in experience outside the text. Like Schwarz, the essays look for intentionality of authorial meaning (rather than something called an "author function") as well as for the relationship between lived experience and the imagined world of the literary work (rather than the endless semiotic play of an ultimately indecipherable text)."--Publisher's website

Hit play : poems by Daniel Morris( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maybe the title of this book isn’t the imperative it appears to be. I see it more as a generic tag. There is the passion play, agit-prop, dramatic monologue, and now the “hit play,” which in olden times we knew as a “greatest hits” collection. It’s not that this isn’t a group of lyric poems, but the lyric here means to draw on the many subgenres of recent decades and compile them. Among them, Morris lays an emphasis on Flarf: a slight whiff of danger, a sense of dislocation, a riddled pop sensibility. Though you can locate the voice, that’s all the more reason Hit Play is prone to the embattled questions of attribution and complicity that play out in lyric form every 100 years or so. Morris’ sweep is wider than pretty much anyone’s. It’s the kind of book you’d like to read on shuffle mode, if Morris hadn’t taken care of that for you at the outset. -- Patrick Durgin -- Provided by publisher

The canal by Daniel Morris( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For detective Joe Lombardi, when a body is discovered dangling beneath the Carroll Street Bridge, the first place he turns to for answers is the nearby canal. With its long history of pollution and neglect, the canal has gained a dubious reputation for ruining people's lives-Joe's included. But to Joe's younger partner, Alan D'Angelo, Joe is little more than a liability, a chain-smoking failure who stands in the way of a much-coveted promotion. Determined to turn the occasion of their investigation to his favor, Alan vows to end Joe's career by beating him to the killer and currying favor with their new boss. But when it comes to the canal nothing is ever what it seems: as Joe and Alan set out to catch their killer, they're about to stumble across an unspeakable secret, one that's waiting for them just beneath the water's dark surface
