Since the invention of management over a century ago, it has gradually become detached from the day-to-day operation of the organization and from delivering value to customers. Conventional wisdom is that managers set targets and then create systems to monitor, measure and control the execution of these targets. These systems include budgets, performance management, incentives and appraisals, which are used to exercise control and ensure that targets are met. Simple, obvious and wrong! We need a change in management thinking. Dragon slaying explains. Can you afford to ignore it? "This book challenges leaders to think about the way they manage. It is a small volume with a big impact and insightful examples which bring the powerful messages to life."Tracey Paul-Clark, Financial Services and Capital Markets Marketing & Communications Proffesional (and one time entrepreneur) working for Nat West, Lloyds TSB, the Stock Exchange and other financial Blue Chips "A succinct practical guide to contemporary management issues with long overdue debunking of prevalent management myths.

In the business world, there is a Federal Deficit, and a financial burden, that we see as strange. In the political worlds, of thought; there is also the same ideals, for justice. In the social world of mine, that needs based changing. Overcoming anything is our policy. We change frequently. From academic real one's books, to the "higher power" family, to money, we change. The "new world order" was described as, any period of history experiencing a dramatic change in America. We all must change. This book is about the change. This book is about me and you. The book's lesson, are in the experienced manual. We, must first, overcome Americans. This is by buying the new world order. America awaits, the zillion dollar reality. In all of this, we must change for America. If we do not, Americans won't change. The top dogs, of this world like academics. They are also in finance. They are our nation's leaders. This is how the world, and America, will make that change. America will make that change, and buy the new world order. Then we can put the pieces, of mind, of the mixed puzzle, together. Do not let, our country, go away, or we will go away, too.

The author of "Last Chance," which was nominated for the Western Writers of America Best First Novel award, brings the California frontier to life. . . . The sleepy village of Los Angeles suddenly awakens in March, 1886, when a fare war reduces the price of a one-way ticket to just one dollar, and the railroads advertise the southern California desert as a "paradise on earth." Longing to escape her drab life in Missouri, Claire Chadwick, single 34-year-old mother of 15-year-old Joanna, seizes the opportunity and rides an immigrant train that carries them west. On the train, Randy Plank, an ambitious young adventurer, falls in love with her. She comes to care for him, but her daughter, too, is smitten with Randy. Arriving in burgeoning Los Angeles, their lives unfold with the land boom that within two years brings 200,000 people to the unlikely "paradise." Claire plunges into the real-estate scramble and, with pluck and luck, rides the wave of the land boom to build a business. Assisted along the way by handsome bank manager Harry Graham, who also falls in love with her; eccentric McKenzie Tate, real estate tycoon; and dynamic Farley Dodd, her employer who is running for mayor, Claire achieves the financial security she seeks for herself and her daughter. But the boom is followed by the inevitable bust, and Claire must choose between a safe marriage and her determination to save her hard-won business and retain her independence.
