Development Trends and Opportunities to 2030

Nearly half the buildings that will be standing in 2030 do not exist today. That means we have a tremendous opportunity to reinvent our urban areas, making them more sustainable and livable for future generations. But for this vision to become reality, the planning community needs reliable data about emerging trends and smart projections about how they will play out. Arthur C. Nelson delivers that resource in Reshaping Metropolitan America. This unprecedented reference provides statistics about changes in population, jobs, housing, nonresidential space, and other key factors that are shaping the built environment, but its value goes beyond facts and figures. Nelson expertly analyzes contemporary development trends and identifies shifts that will affect metropolitan areas in the coming years. He shows how redevelopment can meet new and emerging market demands by creating more compact, walkable, and enjoyable communities. Most importantly, Nelson outlines a policy agenda for reshaping America that meets the new market demand for sustainable places.

True Story

How to Combine Story and Action to Transform Your Business

Is your company a storyteller—or a storydoer? The old way to market a business was storytelling. But in today’s world, simply communicating your brand’s story in the hope that customers will listen is no longer enough. Instead, your authentic brand must be evident in every action the organization undertakes. Today’s most successful businesses are storydoers. These companies create products and services that, from the very beginning, are manifestations of an authentic and meaningful story—one told primarily through action, not advertising. In True Story, creative executive Ty Montague argues that any business, regardless of size or industry, can embrace the principles of storydoing. Indeed, our best-run companies—from small start-ups to global conglomerates—organize around a coherent narrative that is then broadcast through every action they take (from product design to customer service to marketing). Montague shows why storydoing firms are nimble, more adaptive to change, and more efficiently run businesses. Montague is a founder of the growth consultancy co:collective and the former president and CCO of J. Walter Thompson, the largest advertising agency in North America. He brings his depth of creative business experience to the book and provides a clear framework and proven process for bringing you and your customers together in the creation of your brand story. Montague introduces five critical elements—what he calls the “the four truths and the action map”—that are the foundation of storydoing: • the participants (your customers, partners, and employees) • the protagonist (your company today) • the stage (the world around your business) • the quest (your driving ambition and contribution to the world) • your action map (the actions that will make your story real for participants) The book is filled with examples of how forward-thinking organizations—including Red Bull, Shaklee, Grind, TOMS Shoes, and News Corporation—are effectively using storydoing to transform their organizations and drive extraordinary results.

Die Bibel der Heutezeit. Willst du ein Haus oder ein Leben? Andy, Dag und Claire teilen die Sehnsüchte ihrer Eltern, der Babyboomer, nicht. Sicherheit ist ihnen egal. Denn das heraufdämmernde neue Jahrtausend verspricht nichts als Katastrophen. Überschuldung, Überbevölkerung, Klimaerwärmung, Komsumterror - vor diesem Hintergrund zählt nur noch eins: Frei zu sein und zu genießen. Die drei beschließen, sich loszusagen, auf Karriere und Kaufkraft zu verzichten, um sich ins Rentneridyll Palm Springs zurückzuziehen, Gin Tonic zu trinken, Geschichten zu erzählen und auf den Sonnenaufgang zu warten. Als „Generation X“ 1991 in den Vereinigten Staaten erschien, waren Leute wie Andy, Dag und Claire, ihre Haltung, die lässige Unverbindlichkeit, Patchworkkleidung, ihre Trink- und Schlafgewohnheiten noch Fiktion. Inzwischen gehören ihre Wiedergänger zum täglichen Straßenbild der Städte weltweit. Millennials und Xennials, Emos, Hipster, die Generation Y und Z. Ihr Denken und Fühlen zu verstehen, wäre ohne „Generation X“ nicht möglich.

Angesichts des demographischen Wandels ist es für die Zukunftssicherung und den Erfolg von Unternehmen unverzichtbar, sich rechtzeitig auf die Anforderungen der nachwachsenden Generation der Millennials einzustellen. Diese Generation, die auch als Generation Y bezeichnet wird, zeichnet sich durch eine Technologie-affine Lebensweise aus und erwartet vom Arbeitgeber Sinnstiftung und Abwechslung im Beruf sowie eine flexible Balance zwischen Arbeit und Freizeit. Studien zufolge ist das betriebliche Personalmanagement derzeit noch kaum an den Bedürfnissen der jungen Arbeitnehmergeneration orientiert. Welche konkreten Handlungsfelder beim Personalmanagement von Millennials bestehen, analysieren Entscheider aus dem Personalbereich namhafter Unternehmen anhand von Fallstudien und Erfahrungen. Zudem werden Konzepte sowie erste Best-Practice-Ansätze für die erfolgreiche Gewinnung und Bindung der jungen Generation aufgezeigt.

Millenarianism and Messianism in Early Modern European Culture

The influence of millenarian thinking upon Cromwell's England is well-known. The cultural and intellectual conceptions of the role of millenarian ideas in the `long' 18th century when, so the `official' story goes, the religious sceptics and deists of Enlightened England effectively tarred such religious radicalism as `enthusiasm' has been less well examined. This volume endeavors to revise this `official' story and to trace the influence of millenarian ideas in the science, politics, and everyday life of England and America in the 17th and 18th centuries.
