Cheng, Victor
Seattle, WA : Innovation Press, ©2012
The seven types of evaluation tools -- McKinsey problem solving test -- Estimation questions -- Why case interviews exist -- What interviewers look for and why -- The core problem-solving tools -- The hypothesis -- The issue tree -- Drill-down analysis -- Synthesis -- Core frameworks -- Profitability framework -- Business situation framework -- Mergers and acquisitions framework -- Frameworks in action -- How to open a candidate-level case -- How to analyze a candidate-led case -- How to close a candidate-led case -- The interviewer-led case -- The written case interview -- The group case interview -- The presentation-only case interview -- How to get multiple job offers -- How to project confidence -- The ten most common mistakes to avoid -- Advanced case interview resources.

In Case Interview Secrets, you'll discover step-by-step instructions on how to dominate what many consider to be the most complex, most difficult, and most intimidating corporate job interview in the world--the infamous case interview. Victor Cheng, a former McKinsey management consultant, reveals his proven, insider's method for acing the case interview. Having personally secured job offers from McKinsey, Bain & Company, Monitor, L.E.K., Oliver Wyman, and A.T. Kearney, he has also been a McKinsey case interviewer--providing you with a hands-on, real-world perspective on what it really takes to land job offers. Cheng's protégées work in all the major strategy management consulting firms, including McKinsey, The Boston Consulting Group, Bain & Company, Monitor Company, A.T. Kearny, Oliver Wyman, L.E.K., Roland Berger, Accenture, and Deloitte, as well as in the strategic planning departments of numerous Fortune 500 companies. Whether you're an undergraduate, BA, PhD, or experienced-hire applicant candidate, you'll discover: what case interviewers really say about you behind closed doors but wouldn't dare tell you--until now; the subtle yet specific performance differences that separate those who get management consulting offers from those who don't; the 10 biggest mistakes candidates make in case interviews (and how to avoid them); the 3 specific things interviewers expect in the first 5 minutes of a case that often decide the outcome on the spot; and an insider's take on what interviewers really look for and why--and how to give them what they want.

Climate change, capitalism, and corporations : processes of creative self-destruction
Wright, Christopher, 1963- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2015
Foreword / by Clive Hamilton -- 1. Climate change and corporate capitalism -- 2. Creative self-destruction and the incorporation of critique -- 3. Climate change and the corporate construction of risk -- 4. Corporate political activity and climate coalitions -- 5. Justification, compromise and corruption -- 6. Climate change, managerial identity and narrating the self -- 7. Emotions, corporate environmentalism and climate change -- 8. Political myths and pathways forward -- 9. Imagining alternatives.

"Climate change is one of the greatest threats facing humanity; a definitive manifestation of the well-worn links between progress and devastation. This book explores the complex relationship that the corporate world has with climate change, and examines the central role of corporations in shaping political and social responses to the climate crisis. The book's principal message is that despite the need for dramatic economic and political change, corporate capitalism continues to rely upon the maintenance of 'business as usual'. The authors explore the different processes through which corporations engage with climate change. Key discussion points include climate change as business risk; corporate climate politics; the role of justification and compromise; and managerial identity and emotional reactions to climate change. Written for researchers and graduate students, this book moves beyond descriptive and normative approaches to provide a sociologically and critically informed theory of corporate responses to climate change"--

Getting unstuck : a guide to discovering your next career path
Butler, Timothy
Boston, Mass. : Harvard Business Press, ©2010
Facing crisis -- Feeling stuck and doubting ourselves -- Opening up and letting go -- Shifting to a new understanding -- Our deepest interests : the first pattern in the carpet -- Learning to let our passions guide us -- Power, people, and achievement : three interwoven patterns -- Mapping our insights : patterns in the sand -- Moving from impasse to action -- Living at the border.

We all experience psychological impasse. This feeling of uncertainty about your next moves in life might come at predictable moments: the loss of a job, the end of a romance, or the death of someone who has long helped you feel recognized, loved, and appreciated. But psychological impasse might also come at unpredictable times: when the career of a lifetime somehow loses its juice, or when you find yourself longing to renew your sense of life's adventure. Predictable or not, psychological impasse brings with it the sense of being stuck or paralyzed. At the office you feel stale or unchallenged. In your personal life you feel agitated, deflated, or downright bored. You know that something must change-and you re desperate to contribute at work, find a reinvigorated role in your family, and dive back into the current of your own life. In Getting Unstuck, business psychologist and researcher Timothy Butler leverages more than twenty years of research to offer strategies for finding your way from impasse to renewed meaning-at work, at home, with colleagues, and with family. Drawing on a wealth of stories about individuals who have successfully transitioned out of impasses, Getting Unstuck provides a practical, authoritative road map for moving past your immediate obstacle-and defining a meaningful path forward.

Meyer and Jordan J. Green.

The generation of tridimensional tissues, assembled from scaffolding materials populated with biologically functional cells, is the great challenge and hope of tissue bioengineering and regenerative medicine. The generation of biomaterials capable of harnessing the immune system has been particularly successful. This book provides a comprehensive view of how immune cells can be manipulated to suppresses inflammation, deliver vaccines, fight cancer cells, promote tissue regeneration or inhibit blood clotting and bacterial infections by functionally engineered biomaterials. However, long-lived polymers, such as those employed in orthopedic surgery or vascular stents, can often induce an immune reaction to their basic components. As a result, this book is also an important step towards coming to understand how to manipulate biomaterials to optimize their beneficial effects and downplay detrimental immune responses. Dr. Santambrogio is Professor of Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology and Orthopedic Surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. She received her M.D. from the University of Perugia and her Ph.D. from the University of Padua in Italy. She received her postdoctoral training at NYU and Harvard Medical School. One of the focuses of the research in her laboratory is the understanding of the immune responses to implanted biomaterials. .

The Internet as we know it is great for collaboration and communication, but is deeply flawed when it comes to commerce and privacy. The new blockchain technology facilitates peer-to-peer transactions without any intermediary such as a bank or governing body. Keeping the user's information anonymous, the blockchain validates and keeps a permanent public record of all transactions. That means that your personal information is private and secure, while all activity is transparent and incorruptible--reconciled by mass collaboration and stored in code on a digital ledger. With its advent, we will not need to trust each other in the traditional sense, because trust is built into the system itself.

New York, NY : Pegasus Books LLC, 2016
Preface to the American edition -- Prologue -- Chapter one, in which we climb into the world of economics and ask ourselves who Adam Smith's mother was -- Chapter two, in which we are introduced to economic man and realize that he is incredibly seductive -- Chapter three, in which it becomes apparent that economic man is not a woman -- Chapter four, in which we see that our pact with economic man isn't turning out as we had expected -- Chapter five, in which we add women and stir -- Chapter six, in which Las Vegas and Wall Street merge -- Chapter seven, in which the global economy goes to hell -- Chapter eight, in which we see that men are also not like economic man -- Chapter nine, in which economic incentives aren't shown to be as uncomplicated as we might think -- Chapter ten, in which we see that you aren't selfish just because you want more money -- Chapter eleven, in which we see that a negative number is still zero -- Chapter twelve, in which we all become entrepreneurs -- Chapter thirteen, in which we see that the uterus isn't a space capsule -- Chapter fourteen, in which we discover economic man's unforeseen depths and fears -- Chapter Fifteen, in which we see that the greatest story of our time only has one sex -- Chapter sixteen, in which we will see that every society suffers in line with its bullshit. And we say goodbye.

"When philosopher Adam Smith proclaimed that our actions are motivated by self-interest, he used the example of the baker and the butcher to lay the foundations for his "Economic man." He argued that they gave bread and meat for profit, not out of the goodness of their hearts. It's an ironic point of view coming from a bachelor who lived with his mother for most of his life-- a woman who cooked his dinner every night. Nevertheless, Smith's economic man has dominated our understanding of modern-day capitalism, Such a viewpoint disregards the unpaid work of mothering, caring, cleaning, and cooking. Essentially, the father of modern economics has based our whole concept of capitalism on a system that ignores half of its participants. ...Who Cooked Adam Smith's Dinner? charts the myth of the economic man, from its origins at Adam Smith's dinner table to its adaptation by the Chicago School to its disastrous role in the 2008 Global Financial Crisis."--Jacket flap.

Dewald, J. R. author
Toronto ; University of Toronto Press, [2016]
The current state of the world and corporate longevity. Faster, smaller, cheaper : a time of great change? ; A delicate balance : strategy, entrepreneurship, and longevity ; The problem : firms fail -- The pursuit of corporate longevity. Longevity : the capacity to change ; Entrepreneurial thinking and the human "dual core" ; The micro-foundations of entrepreneurial motivation ; Creating the entrepreneurial organization -- Entrepreneurial thinking in action. Dual-core processing at work ; Barriers to success ; Concluding comments.

"Starting a business is hard, but keeping an established company going can be equally challenging. In the long run, every business will need to adapt to changing market conditions, technologies, and competitive environments. Achieving Longevity explains how to manage those changes through entrepreneurial thinking. As Jim Dewald shows, the most successful companies thrive by establishing decision-making processes that constantly engage new opportunities, enabling the firm to quickly adapt to disruptive technologies and business models. They allow for tinkering and experimentation and strive to both exploit their competitive advantage today and explore new ideas that will give them an edge tomorrow. Achieving Longevity provides a framework for introducing the tools and culture necessary to foster entrepreneurial thinking, as well as advice on how to overcome common obstacles to corporate entrepreneurship. Drawing on Dr. Dewald's own experience as an entrepreneur, a successful corporate executive, and a professor of strategy, the book offers numerous examples of how to combine the strengths of an established firm with the innovative, outside the box thinking of a start-up venture." from publisher's website.
