Stragility : excelling at strategic changes
Auster, Ellen R
Toronto ; University of Toronto Press, 
Stragility -- Strategic, agile, people-powered change -- Redefining strategy to win : from lock and load to sense and shift -- Building support : from poisoned by the politics to embrace our inner politician -- Fostering ownership and accountability : from tell and sell to inspire and engage -- Creating successful change again and again : from change fatigue to change fitness -- Putting stragility into action.
"Success in business demands an organization that is agile, innovative, and alert, capable of reinventing itself to handle whatever comes its way. Yet most attempts at transformational change fail, hamstrung by poor strategy, office politics, stakeholder resistance, and the pressures of constant transformation. In Stragility, Ellen Auster and Lisa Hillenbrand provide a powerful, practical, action-oriented approach that equips leaders at all levels to navigate these challenges while building skills and capabilities for the next strategic change. Filled with great examples of leading edge companies, and jam-packed with concrete tips, action steps, and tools, Stragility offers indispensable advice on how to make continuous strategic changes, navigate the politics and emotions of change, and inspire and engage leaders and stakeholders. Building on a field-tested framework the authors have applied in Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and social sector organizations, Stragility provides the tools for creating a thriving, high-energy organization that will excel at strategic change--again and again."--

The digital difference : media technology and the theory of communication effects
Neuman, W. Russell
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2016
The propaganda problem -- The problem of precision -- The paradox of profusion -- Pondering polysemy -- Predisposed to polarization -- The politics of pluralism -- Public policy -- Praxis.
"Although the shift from one-way to two-way mass communication - from broadcasting to social networking - represents a revolutionary restructuring, it does not necessarily mean the public is better informed, more culturally or politically polarized, or more engaged in public life. Practices, institutions, and norms are in mid-transition and potentially subject to our individual and collective choice. The book is designed to connect the best of recent scholarship with these pressing policy questions"--Provided by publisher.

The social media revolution : an economic encyclopedia of friending, following, texting, and connecting
Hanson, Jarice, author
Santa Barbara, California : Greenwood, an imprint of ABC-CLIO, LLC, 
Preface -- Introduction -- Timeline -- Historical overview -- Guide to related topics -- The encyclopedia -- Bibliography -- Index.
"Social media shapes the ways in which we communicate, think about friends, and hear about news and current events. It also affects how users think of themselves, their communities, and their place in the world. This book examines the tremendous impact of social media on daily life. • Provides an insightful perspective on the past and future that demonstrates how the technologies of communication serve to create the nexus of social interaction. • Examines the fundamental need and desire of humanity to communicate, which in turn determines what we think of ourselves, how we see the world, and how we make meaning. • Focuses on social media as a powerful tool, not only for communication and entertainment but also for potentially equalizing power and social mobility locally, nationally, and globally. • Considers the financial impact of social media as it challenges legacy media for consumers, users, and audiences."--Amazon

Breaking the chains of gravity : the story of spaceflight before NASA
Teitel, Amy Shira, author
New York ; Bloomsbury Sigma, 2016
Hobby rocketeers -- The rocket loophole -- The turning tide of war -- Escape and surrender -- Nazi rockets in New Mexico -- Rockets meet airplanes -- A new war, a new missile, and a new leader -- Higher and faster -- Edging into hypersonics -- The floating astronaut -- Space becomes an option -- The first satellite race -- One little ball's big impact -- The fight to control space -- Epilogue: America finds its footing in space.
NASA's history is a familiar story, peaking with Neil Armstrong's small step on the Moon in 1969. But America's space agency--and in particular its Apollo lunar-landing program--wasn't created in a vacuum. It was assembled from pre-existing parts, drawing together some of the best minds the non-Soviet world had to offer. In 1930s Germany, rockets were the focus both of scientists hoping to explore space and of the Wehrmacht. These two strands came together in Wernher von Braun, an engineer who designed the rockets that became the devastating V-2. As the war came to its conclusion, von Braun orchestrated a daring escape from the ruins of Nazi Germany to America, where he began developing missiles for the US Army. Ten years later his Redstone rocket was the only one capable of launching a satellite into orbit. Just what that satellite would be was under the remit of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), which pioneered a round-bottomed capsule that could also keep men safe returning from space. Meanwhile, US Air Force pilots were riding to the fringes of space in balloons to see how humans handled radiation at high altitude, while test pilots like Neil Armstrong flew cutting-edge, rocket-powered aircraft in the thin upper atmosphere. Amy Shira Teitel tells the story of America's nascent space program, its scientific advances, its personalities and the rivalries it caused between the various arms of the United States military, right up to the launch of Sputnik in 1957, when getting a man into space became a national imperative leading to the creation of NASA.--Adapted from book jacket.

Internet of things : principles and paradigms
edited by Rajkumar Buyya, Amir Vahid Dastjerdi
Cambridge, MA : Morgan Kaufmann, 
"The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm makes 'things' such as medical devices, fridge, smart meters, cameras, and road traffic sensors part of the Internet. It is expected that trillions of IoT devices will be deployed by 2025 for applications such as smart cities and digital agriculture. This new paradigm opens the doors to new innovations and interactions between people and things that will enhance the quality of life and utilization of scarce resources. [This book] captures the state-of-the-art research in Internet of Things, its applications, architectures, and technologies. The book identifies potential future directions and technologies that facilitate insights into numerous scientific, business, and consumer applications ... [and] addresses numerous challenges and develops the conceptual and technological solutions for tackling them. The challenges include the development of scalable architecture, lightweight application development platforms, autonomic management, and as well as the privacy and ethical issues around data sensing, sharing, and processing."--Back cover.
