Most aviation accidents are attributed to human error, pilot error especially. Human error also greatly effects productivity and profitability. In his overview of this collection of papers, the editor points out that these facts are often misinterpreted as evidence of deficiency on the part of operators involved in accidents. Human factors research reveals a more accurate and useful perspective: The errors made by skilled human operators - such as pilots, controllers, and mechanics - are not root causes but symptoms of the way industry operates. The papers selected for this volume have strongly influenced modern thinking about why skilled experts make errors and how to make aviation error resilient.

VOC Emissions from Wastewater Treatment Plants: Characterization, Control, and Compliance provides comprehensive information on the subject of Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions from publicly owned treatment works (POTWs). It describes models of emission factors so that readers will know what to expect when models need to be used for the estimation of VOCs from their specific wastewaters. The authors provide a road-map approach for air pollution abatement compliance so that managers can determine their human resource needs. POTW professionals will find information on VOC emissions from various unit processes such as sewers, preliminary and secondary clarifiers, activated sludge and attached growth systems, sludge treatment, and combustion devices.

Nach einem Vierteljahrhundert politischer Theoriemüdigkeit haben Hardt und Negri mit ihrer brillanten, provokanten und heiß diskutierten Analyse des postmodernen Kapitalismus im Zeitalter der Globalisierung das Denken wieder in Bewegung gebracht. Der Hoffnung auf die politische Gestaltbarkeit einer neuen, gerechteren Weltordnung haben sie damit ein anspruchsvolles theoretisches Fundament gegeben.

Gibt es ein Rezept für Verkaufserfolg? Die meisten Führungskräfte im Vertrieb verweisen hier zuerst auf eine gute Kundenbeziehung – und sie liegen falsch damit. Die besten Verkäufer versuchen nicht nur einfach eine gute Beziehung zu ihren Kunden aufzubauen – sie stellen primär die Denkweisen und Überzeugungen ihrer Kunden in Frage. Basierend auf einer umfassenden Studie mit mehreren tausend Vertriebsmitarbeitern in unterschiedlichen Branchen und Ländern, zeigt "The Challenger Sale", dass das klassische vertriebliche Vorgehen mit dem Aufbau von Beziehungen immer weniger funktioniert, je komplexer die Lösungen sind. Doch wie unterscheiden sich Fertigkeiten, Verhaltensweisen, Wissen und Einstellung der Spitzenverkäufer vom Durchschnitt? Die Studie zeigt deutlich, dass die Verhaltensweisen, die den Challenger so erfolgreich machen, replizierbar und strukturiert vermittelbar sind. Die Autoren erklären, wie fast jeder Verkäufer, ausgestattet mit den richtigen Werkzeugen, diesen Ansatz erfolgreich umsetzen kann und so höhere Kundenbindung und letztendlich mehr Wachstum generiert. Das Buch ist eine Quelle der Inspiration und hilft dem Leser, sein Profil als Vertriebler zu analysieren und gezielt zu verändern, um am Ende kreativer und besser zu sein.
