The subject of the use of social media has renewed interest because of the impact that it had on the last U.S. presidential election and the impact that social media networks will have on subsequent elections. As guides in the information world, it is thus important that librarians be well versed in social media. This has called attention to the relevance and urgency of incorporating social media use into the academic library, both as a marketing tool and as an instruction tool. Social Media for Communication and Instruction in Academic Libraries is an essential reference source that offers guidance in using social media in academic libraries and in instruction with a special emphasis on assessment and evidence-based practice. Featuring research on topics such as digital libraries, marketing, and web analytics, this book is ideally designed for librarians, administrators, educators, managers, information technology specialists, professionals, researchers, and students.

Business magic and disruptive innovation First comes the magic, and then the magic becomes the reality You may think you know what magic is. Abracadabra, hocus-pocus. Forget about it. Magic? Magic is what human beings do. It’s just that some do it a lot better than others. Business strategies from the world's greatest magicians: This book takes everything that three remarkable authors―a corporate strategist, the former acting director of the CIA, and a world-renowned magician―have learned about magic and packs it into a unique framework that captures the best of this art form and relates it directly to key lessons applicable to a wide variety of business enterprises. The authors’ objective is not to create a new generation of magicians, but to adapt nine strategies of the world’s greatest magicians and inspire boundless imagination, bolster innovation, energize leadership, and spark success in any business. At the core of Creating Business Magic is the belief that imagination can make magicians of us all. Magic and disruptive innovation: Each chapter opens with a scenario depicting a pivotal historic moment in magic―from Harry Houdini to Doug Henning to Penn and Teller to David Copperfield―and uses it as a starting point to explore how the magical technique employed can create a fertile environment for industry disruptive innovation and propel a company light years ahead of the competition. The nine disruptive strategies presented by the authors demonstrate how to: • Anticipate the next trends out of thin air • Create remarkable new products that wow customers • Launch marketing and advertising campaigns that will mesmerize “aspirationals” • Make dazzling sales presentations • Resolve seemingly unsolvable business dilemmas • Inspire teams with resilient change leadership in which the “status quo” is never acceptable and each year the organization incorporates new “tricks” into its act Business magic: Specifically designed for companies seeking to achieve the transformative, innovative results of the authors’ illustrious corporate and political clientele―GE, Apple, Coca-Cola, Disney, Microsoft, Google, NBC, five Nobel Prize winners, and even President Barack Obama―Creating Business Magic is both an authoritative business management book and a spectacular, entertaining read.

Imagine that you are the CEO of a software company. You know you compete in an environment that does not permit you to treat innovation as a secondary issue. But how should you manage your software innovation to get the most out of it? This book will provide you with the answer. Software innovation is multifaceted and the approaches used by companies can be very different. The team of authors that wrote this book took the assumption that there is no such thing as a universal software engineering process or innovation process. Some things work well for a certain company, others do not. The book is organized around what the authors call eight fundamental practice areas for innovation with software. Each practice area contains a number of activities that can help companies to master that practice area. It also contains industrial experience reports that illustrate the applicability of these practice areas in software companies and is structured in such a way that you can select and read only those practice areas that are relevant to your company. The book is written with an industrial target audience in mind. Its most important goal is to challenge companies by offering them a framework to become more innovation-driven, rather than engineering-driven. Intrigued? Here you will find details of what you and your company can do to understand, implement, and sustain continuous innovation.

When Rebecca Stephens first formed her goal of climbing Everest she was a young journalist with hardly any climbing experience, but with a strong vision and limitless determination to achieve her dream. It was a highly ambitious goal for such an inexperienced climber. Yet only four years on, she became the first British woman to climb the highest mountain in the world. That achievement led directly to her second great ambition: to be the first British woman to climb the Seven Summits, the tallest peak on each of the world's seven continents. In this inspiring book, Rebecca Stephens and management guru Robert Heller join forces to explore the mental skills, practical abilities and psychological powers that enabled her to achieve her dream. Whatever your personal ambition may be, the lessons of this unique book will lead you to identify, master and scale your own individual heights.

Green products have been around since the 1970s, but it’s only in recent years that they’ve become ubiquitous. It’s not because consumers suddenly prize sustainability above all. It’s because savvy green marketers are no longer trying to “sell the earth”—instead they’re promoting the value their products provide: better health, superior performance, good taste, cost-effectiveness, or simply convenience. This central emphasis on primary benefits—the new rules—is critical to winning over the mainstream consumer. The New Rules of Green Marketing helps readers understand why value-based sustainability marketing has become a critical organizational capacity and how they themselves can adopt this approach. Drawing on the latest data from leading researchers and reflecting on learnings from her corporate clients and other pioneers—including GE, Nike, Method, Starbucks, Timberland, HP, NatureWorks, Procter & Gamble, Stonyfield Farm, and Wal-Mart—Ottman provides practical strategies, tools, and inspiration for building every aspect of a credible value-based green marketing strategy. She covers using a proactive approach to sustainability to spur innovation, developing products that are green throughout their life cycle, communicating credibly to avoid accusations of “greenwashing,” teaming up with stakeholders to maximize outreach to consumers, taking advantage of social media, and much more. This book takes the best of Ottman’s previous groundbreaking work it into the 21st century. Her new rules relegate traditional “green guilt” approaches to the recycling bin of history, break green products out of their niche and, ultimately do a far better job of advancing the triple bottom line of people, profits, and planet.

Written for young adults as they look forward to their future, and for older adults in, or anticipating, a lifestyle or career transition, Goal Scoring Step-by-Step aims to assist the "goal-seeker" in scoring his or her goals, to get what he or she needs and wants. Goal Scoring Step-by-Step describes how to identify, define and achieve goals. It includes how to "set" goals, how to "score" goals, and how to incorporate the responses from the exercises into a workable plan. "TAP," an integrative process of thoughts, actions, and passions, helps the reader identify, define, and achieve his or her goals. Topics include goal scoring and time management, goal scoring and task management, goal scoring and action management, and goal scoring and thought management. "Choose Words that Work for You" succinctly describes how substituting one word for another may help a person do an action rather than avoid it.

One of Africa's major untapped resources is the creativity of its farmers. This book presents a series of clear and detailed studies that demonstrate how small-scale farmers, both men and women, experiment and innovate in order to improve their livelihoods, despite the adverse conditions and lack of appropriate external support with which they have to contend. The studies are based on fieldwork in a wide variety of farming systems throughout Africa, and have been written primarily by African researchers and extension specialists. Numerous lively examples show how a participatory approach to agricultural research and development that builds on local knowledge and innovation can stimulate the creativity of all involved - not only the farmers. This approach, which recognizes the farmers' capacity to innovate as the crucial component of success, provides a much-needed alternative to the conventional 'transfer of technology' paradigm. This book is a rich source of case studies and analyses of how agricultural research and development policy can be changed. It presents evidence of the resilience and resolution of rural communities in Africa and will be an inspiration for development workers, researchers and policy-makers, as well as for students and teachers of agriculture, environment and sustainable development.
