When Teams Work Best: 6,000 Team Members and Leaders Tell What it Takes to Succeed

When Teams Work Best: 6,000 Team Members and Leaders Tell What it Takes to Succeed Lowest new price: $31.95
Lowest used price: $15.81
List price: $51.00
Author: Frank M. J. LaFasto

What makes some teams achieve extraordinary outcomes, while other fall disappointingly short of the mark?

Frank LaFasto and Carl Larson have systematically explored that question for more than 20 years. In 1989, they published the best-selling book TeamWork; What Must Go Right/What Can Go Wrong, which reported the results of an in-depth study of some of the most successful teams in recent history and identified the eight characteristics of high performance teams.

When Teams Work Best advances this groundbreaking research by probing more deeply inside the workings of hundred of teams—some effective and some faltering. For over a decade, the authors collected and analyzed responses from more than 6,000 team members and leaders across a variety of industries, in both public and private sectors, to find out exactly what conditions help or hinder teams in achieving their goals. The voices of these team members—often eloquent, always enlightening—are heard through the quotations that appear throughout the book.

Legal Practice and Cultural Diversity (Cultural Diversity and Law)

Legal Practice and Cultural Diversity (Cultural Diversity and Law) Lowest new price: $100.63
Lowest used price: $25.00
List price: $144.95
Author: Ralph Grillo

"Legal Practice and Cultural Diversity" considers how contemporary cultural and religious diversity challenges legal practice, how legal practice responds to that challenge, and how practice is changing in the encounter with the cultural diversity occasioned by large-scale, post-war immigration. Locating actual practices and interpretations which occur in jurisprudence and in public discussion, this volume examines how the wider environment shapes legal processes and is in turn shaped by them. In so doing, the work foregrounds a number of themes principally relating to changing norms and practices and sensitivity to cultural and religious difference in the application of the law. Comparative in approach, this study places particular cases in their widest context, taking into account international and transnational influences on the way in which actors, legal and other, respond.

Over the past century, the value and importance of intellectual property has grown rapidly worldwide. While it is crucial for companies to successfully manage their intangible assets, they face difficult questions in attempting to navigate the complex business and legal environment that surrounds IP rights.

Economic Approaches to Intellectual Property Policy, Litigation, and Management discusses real-world tools and strategies at the forefront of economic thinking about many of today’s most prominent intellectual property issues. Co-edited by Dr. Gregory K. Leonard and Dr. Lauren J. Stiroh, this book is an anthology of 23 articles by economists associated with NERA, whose analyses have played a crucial role in numerous landmark legal and regulatory cases. The chapters explore topics ranging from the valuation of IP damages to intellectual property rights protection in China and the antitrust implications of standard setting and patent pools.

The book addresses such key questions as:
How should the owner of IP rights be compensated when those rights are violated?
What role should antitrust and competition policy play in intellectual property matters?
How can companies more accurately assess their R&D investments and strategies?
Should emerging economic powers implement and enforce more stringent intellectual property rights?

Economic Approaches to Intellectual Property Policy, Litigation, and Management should prove to be of interest to economists, lawyers, policy makers, executives managing IP portfolios, and law and business schools
