In the UK some 11.5m people already live with a recognised disability and more than a fifth of them experience some difficulty when using transport networks. So it's essential that the Department for Transport delivers an ambitious Accessibility Action Plan. Changes made ahead of the 2012 Paralympic Games delivered access for disabled people to significantly more parts of the public transport network for the first time and highlighted the immense value of such improvements for all. Yet a year later, there is a risk that some of the momentum from London 2012 is being lost because further key accessibility improvements planned have been watered-down or abandoned. The Committee's recommendations include: imposing penalties on bus operators who claim to offer accessible routes but then fail to provide accessible buses; the phased introduction of audio-visual information systems on all buses over the next ten years; phasing out the need for disabled travellers having to book organised assistance in advance; financial incentives to encourage investment in fully accessible vehicles by taxi and private care hire vehicle operators; and a change to EU rules so that in future airlines are required to allow carers to travel free of charge when the airline judges a disabled person incapable of travelling independently. The Cabinet Office should convene a working group of ministers and officials to improve cross-government working on accessibility in order to secure the full benefits to be gained from widening disabled people's access to employment and training, healthcare and wider participation in all parts of society

It has been known for quite some time that ICT can directly improve corporate performance if it is employed in an appropriate way. There are many stories of how organisations have been transformed by the use of this technology. However it is also known that it is not a simple task to employ ICT effectively. Many organisations have spent considerable sums of money and had only very modest returns. This book addresses the issues of how to deliver significant improvements in corporate performance through the use of ICT and it offers different models which can be of assistance to organisational leaders in this respect. These models are brought to life by analysing a series of real life case studies encompassing both successes and failures in the adoption of ICT, from which deep insights on how to apply this technology for competitive advantage are extracted. The book is suitable for both ICT professionals and for members of senior management including CEOs. It has been written in an accessible way so that it will also be of value to academics who offer courses in ICT strategy and implementation. It will expose their students to the dilemmas of management decisions concerning the different uses of ICT and its role in value creation. 260 Pages

«Ein Wunder. Und kein geringes.» (Die Welt) Nach fast fünfzig Ehejahren hat Enid Lambert nur ein Ziel: ihre Familie zu einem letzten Weihnachtsfest um sich zu scharen. Alles könnte so schön sein, gemütlich, harmonisch. Doch Parkinson hat ihren Mann Alfred immer fester im Griff, und die drei erwachsenen Kinder durchleben eigene tragikomische Malaisen. Gary steckt in einer Ehekrise. Chip versucht sich als Autor. Und Denise ist zwar eine Meisterköchin, hat aber in der Liebe kein Glück. Jonathan Franzen ist ein großartiger Roman gelungen: Familien- und Gesellschaftsgeschichte in einem. «Eine Sensation.» (Der Spiegel) «Jonathan Franzen ist das größte Sprachtalent, das die amerikanische Literatur seit John Updike hervorgebracht hat.» (Literaturen) «Man möchte Jonathan Franzen genial nennen.» (Süddeutsche Zeitung) «Man geht mit jenem eigentümlichen Gefühl aus der Lektüre hervor, das nur große Literatur wecken kann: Man fühlt sich beschenkt und bereichert.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
