The Ways to New : 15 Paths to Disruptive Innovation by Jean-Marie Dru( )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Break free and lead the market with the roadmap to DisruptionThe Ways to New gives you a blueprint for innovation, helping you dig your organization out of the quicksand and get on the fast track to growth. Author Jean-Marie Dru is the originator the Disruption methodology, which he shares here; he is also an international authority on breaking the mold and leading the market, and this audiobook is his guide to making it happen. Too many companies are too slow with innovation. They lag behind, creating at a snail's pace, and thus miss out on any kind of organic growth. They approach new ideas too conservatively, and focus innovation on products only--when there is a whole world out there waiting to be disrupted. This audiobook shows you how to steer your organization toward continued innovation, creation, growth, and success, with 15 proven paths to disruption. Each is illustrated with case studies from companies like L'oreal, Procter & Gamble, and, to show you the glaring differences between disruption and stagnation.We like to think that we live in a world where innovation happens at a staggering pace. The reality is that we don't, but that leaves an opening that your organization can fill if you're willing to break from the herd. This book shows you how start turning in a new direction, toward sustained, forward-thinking growth.Foster organic growth within your organizationBecome more proactive about innovationUnderstand the famous "Disruption" methodologyLearn the specific, proven paths to disruptionEveryone loves to cite Apple, Google, and Amazon as proof of high-speed innovation. But companies like this represent only 20% of companies worldwide-the other 80% are still floundering and failing to move forward. The Ways to New gives you a roadmap to innovation, and the tools to make it work
Crouching tiger : what China's militarism means for the world by Peter Navarro( Recording )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Will there be war with China? This book provides the most complete and accurate assessment of the probability of conflict between the United States and the rising Asian superpower. Equally important, it lays out an in-depth analysis of the possible pathways to peace. Written like a geopolitical detective story, the narrative encourages reader interaction by starting each chapter with an intriguing question that often challenges conventional wisdom. Based on interviews with more than thirty top experts, the author highlights a number of disturbing facts about China's recent military buildup and the shifting balance of power in Asia: the Chinese are deploying game-changing "carrier killer" ballistic missiles; some of America's supposed allies in Europe and Asia are selling highly lethal weapons systems to China in a perverse twist on globalization; and, on the U.S. side, debilitating cutbacks in the military budget send a message to the world that America is not serious about its "pivot to Asia." In the face of these threatening developments, the book stresses the importance of maintaining US military strength and preparedness and strengthening alliances, while warning against a complacent optimism that relies on economic engagement, negotiations, and nuclear deterrence to ensure peace. Accessible to readers from all walks of life, this multidisciplinary work blends geopolitics, economics, history, international relations, military doctrine, and political science to provide a better understanding of one of the most vexing problems facing the world."

Effective knowledge transfer in complex organizations : identifying barriers to knowledge transfer in complex organizations by Stephen McLaughlin( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The research outlined in this book is concerned with understanding how organizational performance can be improved through effective knowledge transfer. In particular, the author is interested in organizational performance as it relates to those organizations that rely on core horizontal business processes, such as those found within a supply chain. Many organizations develop knowledge strategies to try and utilise existing knowledge within their organizations. However, this process tends to be developed from a top-down perspective, and deployed on an organization-wide basis. It is the researcher's contention that this is not a suitable approach for developing an effective knowledge strategy for supply chain / complex organizations. It is the contention of the author that in order to develop and define a suitable method for knowledge strategy development and implementation, how knowledge and information are created and shared along core business processes must first be understood. To do this it is important to identify the barriers that impact knowledge transfer across an organization, and more specifically, along core business processes
Welcome to the Microbiome : Getting to Know the Trillions of Bacteria and Other Microbes In, On, and Around You. by Rob DeSalle( Recording )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suddenly, research findings require a paradigm shift in our view of the microbial world. The Human Microbiome Project at the National Institutes of Health is well under way, and unprecedented scientific technology now allows the censusing of trillions of microbes inside and on our bodies as well as in the places where we live, work, and play. This intriguing, up-to-the-minute book for scientists and nonscientists alike explains what researchers are discovering about the microbe world and what the implications are for modern science and medicine

Bispectral analysis of speech signals by Justin W. A Fackrell( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Techniques which utilise a signal's Higher Order Statistics (HOS) can reveal information about non-Gaussian signals and nonlinearities which cannot be obtained using conventional (second-order) techniques. This information may be useful in speech processing because it may provide clues about how to construct new models of speech production which are better than existing models. There has been a recent surge of interest in the application of HOS techniques to speech processing, but this has been handicapped by a lack of understanding of what the HOS properties of speech signals are. Without this understanding the HOS information which is in speech signals can not be efficiently utilised. This thesis describes an investigation into the use of HOS techniques, in particular the third-order frequency domain measure called the bispectrum, to speech signals. Several issues relating to bispectral speech analysis are addressed, including nonlinearity detection, pitch-synchronous analysis, estimation criteria and stationarity. A flaw is identified in an existing algorithm for detecting quadratic nonlinearities, and a new detector is proposed which has better statistical properties. In addition, a new algorithm is developed for estimating the normalised bispectrum of signals contaminated by transient noise. Finally the tools developed in the study are applied to a specially constructed database of continuant speech sounds. The results are consistent with the hypothesis that speech signals do not exhibit quadratic nonlinearity

An Investigation of nonlinear speech synthesis and pitch modification techniques by Iain Mann( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Speech synthesis technology plays an important role in many aspects of man-machine interaction, particularly in telephony applications. In order to be widely accepted, the synthesised speech quality should be as human-like as possible. This thesis investigates novel techniques for the speech signal generation stage in a speech synthesiser, based on concepts from nonlinear dynamical theory. It focuses on natural-sounding synthesis for voiced speech, coupled with the ability to generate the sound at the required pitch. The one-dimensional voiced speech time-domain signals are embedded into an appropriate higher dimensional space, using Takens' method of delays. These reconstructed state space representations have approximately the same dynamical properties as the original speech generating system and are thus effective models. A new technique for marking epoch points in voiced speech that operates in the state space domain is proposed. Using the fact that one revolution of the state space representation is equal to one pitch period, pitch synchronous points can be found using a Poincar´e map. Evidently the epoch pulses are pitch synchronous and therefore can be marked. The same state space representation is also used in a locally-linear speech synthesiser. This models the nonlinear dynamics of the speech signal by a series of local approximations, using the original signal as a template. The synthesised speech is natural-sounding because, rather than simply copying the original data, the technique makes use of the local dynamics to create a new, unique signal trajectory. Pitch modification within this synthesis structure is also investigated, with an attempt made to exploit the ˇ Silnikov-type orbit of voiced speech state space reconstructions. However, this technique is found to be incompatible with the locally-linear modelling technique, leaving the pitch modification issue unresolved. A different modelling strategy, using a radial basis function neural network to model the state space dynamics, is then considered. This produces a parametric model of the speech sound. Synthesised speech is obtained by connecting a delayed version of the network output back to the input via a global feedback loop. The network then synthesises speech in a free-running manner. Stability of the output is ensured by using regularisation theory when learning the weights. Complexity is also kept to a minimum because the network centres are fixed on a data-independent hyper-lattice, so only the linear-in-the-parameters weights need to be learnt for each vowel realisation. Pitch modification is again investigated, based around the idea of interpolating the weight vector between different realisations of the same vowel, but at differing pitch values. However modelling the inter-pitch weight vector variations is very difficult, indicating that further study of pitch modification techniques is required before a complete nonlinear synthesiser can be implemented
