Strategy and resilience are common terms, but most researchers and authors have come up short in defining what they mean and how to achieve them. Ramon Martinez, a retired lieutenant colonel with the U.S. Air Force, solves that problem with this business guidebook in which he: introduces the subjects of business strategy and resilience; dispels myths about strategy, corrects misconceptions, and clarifies what strategy and resilience means; shows how guiding principles, a vision, and a mission are instrumental to doing business in a complex and fast-paced world filled with change; shares ways to create a strong business strategy so companies can thrive even during tough times; and connects it all with a profound yet dynamic discussion on leadership. Throughout the book, Martinez makes the case that business strategy and resilience work hand in hand. Business strategy helps you overcome obstacles to success, and resilience allows you to adapt to changes in order to sustain healthy growth over time. This book is for everyone working in a company, for any person who runs or manages a business, for students studying business, and for anyone wishing to learn something new. Filled with collaborative exercises, anecdotes, clear definitions, illustrations, models, and examples from real life, the business strategy you develop using this book enables you to build a thriving business that lasts.

Faces Inside and Outside the Clinic

A Foucauldian Perspective on Cosmetic Facial Modification

Drawing on studies of surface topography, image editing, and diagnostic and surgical experience, Faces Inside and Outside the Clinic addresses the notion of ’truth’ in what are considered to be ’right’ and ’wrong’ faces, whether in clinical cosmetic procedures or in specific sociocultural contexts outside the clinic. With attention to the manner in which the human face - and often the individual herself or himself as a consequence - is physically defined, conceptually judged, numerically measured and clinically analysed, this book reveals that on closer inspection, supposedly objective and evidential ’truths’ are in fact subjective and prescriptive. Adopting a Foucauldian analysis of the ways in which ’normalising technologies’ and ’techniques’ ultimately preserve and expand upon an increasing array of ’abnormal’ facial configurations, Faces Inside and Outside the Clinic shows that when determining ’right’ and ’wrong’ faces, what happens inside the clinic is inextricably linked to what happens outside the clinic - and vice versa. As such, it will be of interest to scholars and students of social, cultural and political theory, contemporary philosophy and the social scientific study of science, health and technology.
