Teamwork in Industry by F. J. Burns Morton (£63.00)Publisher: Chapman & Hall — 1948Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with loss at the head of the upper panel and closed tears to the lower. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Tanning and spotting to the blanks and endpapers. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.Description: From the cover: “The author’s previous book, The New Foremanship, endeavoured to propound and analyse the problem of supervision in the light of present circumstances and likely trends. It was suggested that new methods of supervision were "necessary to bring social relationships, which in industry had remained static, into line with the great developments which had taken place in technical organisation; and further, what was needed in foremanship was also necessary in other managerial practices.

This present book, which is also addressed to all in authority and to those thinking employees who believe in the possibilities, of their jobs, sets out to show the direction of the second step. It examines the nature of better working relationships, and shows that harmonious, consciously directed working together leads to increased efficiency. Thus the name Teamwork in Industry.

The twelve chapters discuss such vital topics as the human factor and the influencing of human behaviour, co-operation and industrial relations, job satisfaction, selection and training of staff, incentives, leadership, supervision, discipline, absenteeism, working conditions and social organisation. The book concludes with a useful bibliography and index.”

The Puritan Gift: Triumph, Collapse and Revival of An American Dream by Kenneth Hopper & William Hopper (£53.00)Publisher: I. B. Tauris & Co. — 2007Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1850434190]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “Where does the Protestant work ethic come from? And how did America achieve such dominance in management for so long?

The Puritan Gift traces the origins and characteristics of an American managerial culture which, over the course of three centuries, turned a handful of small colonies into the greatest economic and political power on earth. It argues that the energy, social mobility, competitiveness and capacity for innovation, all of which lie at the heart of that culture, have their origins in the discipline and ethos of America’s first wave of European immigrants: the Puritans. Drawing lessons from their own extensive experience, the authors warn that, as America distances itself from the core values which underlay its commercial and economic success during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, it puts its own future prosperity and security at risk.

The book also explores how American managerial culture has spread throughout the world. In particular it examines the impact of the US occupation of Japan on the social and manufacturing mores of that country and explains how America’s inherited style of management interacted with Japanese traditions.

This is an original exploration of the dramatic and far-reaching consequences of the Puritans’ ‘gift’ to America — the ethos which produced the early success of America and what came to be known as the American dream.”

This edited collection brings together the latest research into the range of sports known as football. With contributions by a large number of the leading international researchers in the field, the book aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice in football, and to raise the awareness of the value of a scientific approach to the various football codes. The book contains nearly seventy papers, examining aspects ranging from match analysis and medical aspects of football to metabolism and nutrition, psychology and behaviour, and management and organization. Containing a wealth of research data, and a huge range of examples of how science can be applied; this book represents an invaluable reference for coaches, trainers, managers, medical staff, and all those involved in supporting performers in the many football codes.”

Principles of Agricultural Economics: Markets and Prices in Less Developed Countries by David Colman; Trevor Young; (£43.00)Publisher: Cambridge University Press — 1995Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0521336643]Condition: Very Good. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: Reprint. [First: 1989] From the cover: “This textbook addresses the main economic principles required by agricultural economists involved in rural development. The principles of ‘micro-economies’ or ‘price-theory’ are of relevance to economists everywhere, but this book reinforces the message of their relevance for rural development by explaining the theory in the specific context of the agricultural and food sectors of developing countries. Hypothetical and actual empirical illustrations drawn almost exclusively from such countries distinguish this book from other economic principles texts that draw their examples almost invariably from industrialised countries, and also from books more oriented to the issues of rural development. The first half of the book deals with the underlying principles of production, supply and demand. These are essential tools for the study and management of the agricultural sector and food markets. In the second half, supply and demand are brought together into a chapter of equilibrium and exchange. This is followed by chapters on trade and the theory of economic welfare. In the final chapter it is shown that much of the material in the earlier chapters can be combined by agricultural economists into a system for analysing and comparing the effects of alternative agricultural policies. The ability of agricultural economics to provide a consistent framework for the analysis of policy problems thus enables it to make a key contribution to rural development.”Notes: Size: Trade Paperback (9¼" x 6").

From the cover: “Isabella Mary Beeton was born in London is 1836, where she grew up in a household of twenty-one children. It took Isabella four years to compile her masterwork, publishing Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management in 1861. It contains an enormous amount of information to help people live, in Isabella Beeton’s own words, economically, tastefully and well. Her style, imparting information as clearly and simply as possible, was hugely influential. The book sold 60,000 copies in its first year, but Isabella Beeton died four years later, in 1865, aged just twenty-eight. The enduring popularity of Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management is testament to the quality of her advice.”

From the cover: “Computer and telecommunication technologies are becoming increasingly convergent and the UK Post Office, in conjunction with the National Computing Centre Ltd has produced this Handbook as a contribution to a greater understanding of their interdependence by students of both disciplines.

Based on Post Office Data Communication Courses, the subjects covered in the Handbook are those which we have found from several years’ teaching experience to be the ones needed by the average student. The book should be of value to systems analysts, systems programmers and systems engineers, although it should also be a good reference for management and newcomers to computing.

Apart from giving particular attention to the facilities available in the UK and the Post Office’s role in data communications, the book provides an insight to the facilities available internationally.”

Improved grassland management by John Frame (£34.00)Publisher: Farming Press — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0852362463]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate ruffling to the dustwrapper.Description: Illustrated with colour photographs, tables and charts. From the cover: “In all its diverse forms, grass is the renewable foundation feed for ruminant production — the green gold of many rural regions and, indeed, countries. Competition for agricultural markets, intensifying in a world growing ever smaller, together with a host of economic and political pressures, requires swift and flexible response and adaptation from grassland farmers to the challenge of change and improved efficiency of use. Precision of inputs, predictability of outputs and profitability are triple objectives.

Against this background, this book subdivides grassland management into its interrelated components before dealing with utilisation by grazing and by hay/silage. The approach taken is the application to practice of basic scientific principles using mainly British and European grassland as examples. Nevertheless, the principles can be applied to grassland elsewhere in the temperate world. Management in relation to the new surge of interest in extensification, forage legume use, nature conservation and environmentally sustainable systems of animal production is also covered.

Written in a reader-friendly, advisory style, Improved Grassland Management is a book for grassland farmers, extension officers, students of agriculture and land use and plant scientists — in fact for everyone with an interest in Mother Earth’s green carpet.”

Out of the Crisis by W. Edwards Deming (£34.00)Publisher: Cambridge University Press — 1988Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0521305535]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Top edge of the text block tanned. Description: From the cover: “This book examines two of the central issues facing industry — how to increase productivity without sacrificing quality, and how to capture markets from competitors. It is a practical book, with abundant illustrations, written for managers — whether in the manufacturing or service sectors. Dr Deming has a worldwide reputation for his work in establishing statistical process control techniques for quality as the route to competitive success in the new economic age. His involvement with Japanese managers is widely accepted as having contributed to their enviable reputation for quality manufactured goods.

The book provides a full account of Deming’s thinking on the primacy of management’s role in improving quality and productivity. He demonstrates what managers do wrong and how costs, dependability and quality can and must be improved. This is not just another manual of techniques; Deming provides a new theory of management which gets to the roots of the problems of industrial competitiveness which face managers today..”

Real Options: A Practitioner's Guide by Tom Copeland & Vladimir Antikarov (£34.00)Publisher: Texere — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1587990288]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine with a little wear to the dust wrapper as a result. Description: From the cover: “Determining the feasibility and the priority of potential investments is critical in business decision making. A new method for estimating the value of investments — real options — is gaining ground over the traditional approach of calculating net present value (NPV). Tom Copeland and Vladimir Antikarov argue that in ten years real options will replace NPV as the central paradigm for investment decisions.

This book offers the first practitioner’s guide for understanding and implementing real options in everyday decision making. The authors bring years of experience with dozens of corporations in implementing real options.

Copeland and Antikarov show how NPV is flawed and tends to undervalue investment opportunities. NPV is a static calculation that fails to consider the many options that management has over the lifetime of an investment project. Such options include expanding or extending the project if results are better than expected or scaling down or abandoning the project if it turns out to be worse than expected.

There are chapters that deal with valuing various types of simple options, such as deferral, abandonment, expansion, and contraction of projects, and more advanced options such as compound and switching options. Chapter 2 shows how Airbus Industrie uses real options in its marketing efforts and discusses the difficulties encountered in implementing real options. Chapter 7 shows how to write an Excel spreadsheet to value simple options, combinations of them, and compound options. Chapters 9 and 10 discuss ways of modelling uncertainties.

The analysis is enriched with case histories and case solutions. The end-of-chapter questions and problems provide both experience and additional insights into the application of real options..”

Barclays stamps to front pastedown and ffep.Description: OVER the last twenty years the science of OR has grown rapidly. It has grown not only in the sophistication of the techniques which it uses, not only in the rapid intake of the personnel employed, not only in the rapid increase of the salaries of all those working in this field, but it bas also grown in the type of problem it tackles and in the maturity it brings to these prob- lems. Such has been its rapid growth that notwithstanding the great deal of interaction between the OR scientist and the industrialist, the management executive often hasn't a clue what it is that the OR men in his company are doing. For the man who does not yet have OR within his company, there is the perplexing problem of whether he should undertake OR and, if he does, what is going to happen, what sort of people will he employ and how will they go about their business. To introduce OR into a company requires a tremendous act of faith on the part of the executive. 107pp. Index. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½")

In addition, throughout the book, the authors apply each principle and technique to a practical case study — a groundbreaking project conducted by a wedding-services business — with checklists and diagrams to clarify every application.
