This Element is an excerpt from Disrupt: Think the Unthinkable to Spark Transformation in Your Business (9780137025145) by Luke Williams. Available in print and digital formats. Why incremental change is a recipe for disaster–and what your business must do instead. Successful companies often embrace incremental change because it supports their current business model. Big mistake. When a business makes only incremental changes, they’re on a path that gets narrower and narrower. Eventually, they reach the end–and by then, their customers have forsaken them for a new offering that nobody saw coming.

What is the most important part of any life? The correct answer to this question holds the key to ultimate success in our living. To be able to answer this question we have to understand what life is truly about. Surprisingly, the Bible is very clear as to the answer to this question. In The Life that is Real Life, Bill Landon explores the basic nature of human life as it is described in the Bible. While this sturdy is based on Christian beliefs, it is not affiliated with any denomination or organization. In this nontraditional approach to life we will look at the spiritual view of living. This is a view that is not found in most of the world's explanations of what human life is about. Why do we need a new view of our living? Most people sense that their living lacks a certain something. Bill believes that something is peace and rest. We are not at rest because we don't know where to look for these blessings. The good news is that we can begin today to find a way to living with greater peace no matter what circumstances we face. All we need to do is to seek from the right source for the answers. Come and explore the wonderful world of the life that is real life.

Why are there so many gaps between what firms know they should do and what they actually do? Why do so many companies fail to implement the experience and insight they've worked so hard to acquire? The Knowing-Doing Gap is the first book to confront the challenge of turning knowledge about how to improve performance into actions that produce measurable results. Jeffrey Pfeffer and Robert Sutton, well-known authors and teachers, identify the causes of the knowing-doing gap and explain how to close it. The message is clear--firms that turn knowledge into action avoid the "smart talk trap." Executives must use plans, analysis, meetings, and presentations to inspire deeds, not as substitutes for action. Companies that act on their knowledge also eliminate fear, abolish destructive internal competition, measure what matters, and promote leaders who understand the work people do in their firms. The authors use examples from dozens of firms that show how some overcome the knowing-doing gap, why others try but fail, and how still others avoid the gap in the first place. The Knowing-Doing Gap is sure to resonate with executives everywhere who struggle daily to make their firms both know and do what they know. It is a refreshingly candid, useful, and realistic guide for improving performance in today's business.

"Razory-wicked, fun...each of [Alford's] stories are like those 'tiny acts of grace' brightening your day." - Kirkus Reviews Everyone knows bad manners when we see them. But what do good manners look like in our day and age? Troubled by the absence of good manners in his day-to-day life-by the people who clip their toenails on the subway, Henry Alford embarks on a journey to find out how things might look if people were on their best behavior a tad more often. He travels to Japan to observe its culture of collective politesse. He interviews etiquette experts both likely (Judith Martin, Tim Gunn) and unlikely (a former prisoner, an army sergeant). He plays a game called Touch the Waiter. And he volunteers himself as a tour guide to foreigners visiting New York City in order to do ground-level reconnaissance on cultural manners divides. In this illuminating and seriously entertaining book, Alford tackles the etiquette questions specific to our age-such as: Why shouldn't you ask a cab driver where's he's from? Why is posting baby pictures on Facebook a fraught activity? What's the problem with "No problem"? WOULD IT KILL YOU TO STOP DOING THAT is a wry and warm way into a subject that has sometimes been seen as pedantic or elitist, and an accessible guide on how we can simply treat each other better.

Desinewed Meat

The European Commission demanded in March that desinewed meat, which closely resembles minced meat and is used in many processed meat products, must be classified as "mechanically separated meat." Under EU rules, this meant that it could no longer be obtained from the bones of cattle, sheep and goats. The Government was caught unawares and has so far failed to protect UK producers despite that it has made it clear that there are no food safety risks associated with the use of desinewed meat. This report highlights the impact that the Commission's decision has had on the UK meat industry. One producer of desinewed meat, Newby Foods Ltd, has been forced to make almost half of its workforce redundant. Consumers are also expected to pay a price as desinewed meat, traditionally used in value ranges, is replaced by more expensive cuts of meat. The Committee's inquiry found that although similar processes are used elsewhere in the EU, only the UK has been forced into a ban after being threatened with "safeguarding measures" by the Commission. Now we must put pressure on the Commission to bring forward visits to other Member States so that there is a level playing field for our producers. We are now in the absurd situation where we could see this meat imported from elsewhere in the EU to take the place of domestically produced meat. The Committee also criticises the European Commission for failing to provide oral evidence to the Committee's inquiry, saying that it shows a "worrying disregard for democratic accountability

Why should Christians care about the United Nation's Goals on poverty and hunger? Does not God want us to prosper? Will not the poor, the sick, the homeless just drag us down? Are we our brother's keeper? The author gives us compelling reasons why we must care, not because we are a Christian, Buddhist, or Moslem, but because we are human beings and we are inter-connected to the plight of every other human being.

Public agencies at the federal, state, and local levels are realizing just how important it is to assess and improve their current performance and to convey information on their achievements and opportunities to staff, leaders, and decision makers as well as externally to constituents. Organizational Assessment and Improvement in the Public Sector Workbook provides public administration practitioners, at all levels of government, with practical advice and tools they can use in planning and conducting an assessment of their organization and creating usable action plans for implementing the results. This workbook addresses how to: Determine whether an organizational assessment would benefit a particular organization Evaluate organizational readiness for assessment, in terms of leadership support, organizational priorities, timing, staff engagement, time and energy, and financial resources Select an assessment tool and method Influence decision makers and identify organizational champions Communicate effectively to internal and external constituents Engage employees in the process The book guides decision making about assessment by creating awareness of the available options and considerations, and by providing a framework for discussions that will determine the right approach for an agency. Each chapter consists of both information and tools, including surveys, exercises, and worksheets which can be used by agencies at all levels to determine whether and how to conduct a meaningful organizational assessment, and how to turn the results of that assessment into organizational improvements. Designed specifically to meet the needs of government organizations, using language and examples that illustrate the challenges and the realities of working in the public sector, this workbook provides the tools to help practitioners "do more with less" and promote a culture of assessment.
