This book provides practical insights into how this may be achieved through the establishment of a Business Intelligence Competency Centre and is a valuable read for 'information professionals.'"

"Strategic Innovation: Embedding Innovation as a Core Competency in Your Organization"
Publisher : Jossey-Bass | ISBN : 0787964050 | 2003-06-30 | Pages : 240 | PDF | 1.39 MB

Strategic Innovation offers a flexible, customizable template that managers, executives, and business leaders can use to introduce an effective innovation strategy throughout their organization. The authors, Nancy Tennant Snyder and Deborah L. Duarte, provide the tools needed to craft a workable strategy for embedding innovation as a core competency across an enterprise. Instead of innovation for innovation's sake, the authors offer a proven business-focused way to change a culture from point-in-time innovations from a few to a continuous pipeline of innovations from everywhere and everyone.

Based on the real-life example of Whirlpool a solid company with a significant track record and global reach—Strategic Innovation shows how the world's largest appliance company put innovation in place as a core competency. During this process, Whirlpool transformed itself from a quality producer of appliances to a customer-focused company that strategically embeds innovation throughout the organization.

Kids at Work: The Value of Employer-Sponsored On-Site Child Care Centers

Kids at Work: The Value of Employer-Sponsored On-Site Child Care Centers by Rachel Connelly
English | Apr. 2004 | ISBN: 0880993057 | 186 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Because of a variety of social and economic factors, including welfare reform and the Earned Income Tax Credit, a growing number of women found it necessary to enter the labor force during the past 25 years. This includes a dramatic increase in the labor force participation rate of mothers with young children. With this trend predicted to continue for the next two decades, parents and policymakers must ask themselves, "Who will take care of the children when the inevitable work/family conflicts arise?"

By a Thread: How Child Care Centers Hold on to Teachers, How Teachers Build Lasting Careers by Marcy Whitebook
English | Dec. 2003 | ISBN: 0880993006 | 159 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Whitebook and Sakai examine how child care programs and their staff subsist in a field characterized by low pay, low status, and high turnover, and what the impacts of these factors are on the quality of child care provided. Their study is based on an in-depth survey of 75 mid-size, relatively high-quality child care centers located in an economically thriving region. They collect data on salaries, training, and educational background for all teaching staff employed at the centers at three points in time—1994, 1996, and 2000. These data provide a detailed picture of the entire teaching workforce at the 75 centers in 2000 and allow a comparison of the workforce in that year to those in 1994 and 1996. This inside look paints a disturbing picture of a dedicated yet poorly paid, high-turnover workforce.
