The Virtual Bookcase : Shelf Business and Management

Business and Management

All too many "business on the Internet" books emphasize business plans and concepts, and completely miss the fact that the net is a radically different place in which to conduct commerce. Schwartau and Goggans travel to the other end of the spectrum and provide a good (though quick) introduction to Internet tools and applications. This results, however, in a book which is perhaps too light on the business side. Companion CD-ROMs are often random collections of shareware. In this case the authors have put together a useful (and generally up to date) collection. Both the information files and the programs (with the possible exception of the ubiquitous SCAN) are well regarded standards in their respective fields. True, all are availab...

W.Edwards Deming was a student, and professor, of statistics. Prior to, and during, the Second World War he worked in statistical sampling methods for business. In 1950, and following, he advised Japanese engineering and industrial firms on statistical process control and management cycles. In 1981, and until his death in 1993, he presented four-day seminars on management and the pursuit of quality in the production of goods and services. Sponsored by George Washington University, these seminars, are said to have drawn 20,000 participants yearly. This book is an attempt, not so much to explain Dr. Deming' thinking (six of his own books are listed in the bibliography), but to give the flavour of the seminars. To this end, the authors...

Book description
How long would your business survive an interruption? How well are you prepared to deal with a disaster which prevents the normal operation of your compnay? Business continuity deals with the consequences of the business threatening 'what-if' scenario - what if operations are destroyed by fire or flood, negative media drives away customers or the company database is stolen or infected by a virus? Since the first concepts of business continuity management were documented, they have evolved dramatically from disaster recovery strategies for computer departments into enterprise-wide continuity planning. This comprehensive guide shows managers and businesses how to develop a plan to protect their organization from disruption and/or disaster, ha... Rest of this review on the detail page

Despite the title, and a number of the topics covered, this book seems to have more to do with business continuity than disaster planning. Chapter one does talk about disaster types (and lists not-so-recent disasters), and has a rough outline of basic parts of the planning process. Some US regulations that may influence plans are discussed in chapter two. Immediate emergency response is reviewed in chapter three. Chapter four talks about types of disasters again (and, again, the examples are fairly old). Fire protection and response, in chapter five, is very uneven in the level of detail, and concentrates heavily on technicalities in regard to exits. Bomb threat response, in chapter six, emphasizes searching techniques. Evacuations ... Rest of this review on the detail page

More and more professions and specialty groups are becoming wired, and are therefore needing guides to the net dedicated to their niche. Financial professionals already have "Free Business Stuff on the Internet" (see reviews) and maybe "How to Grow Your Business on the Internet" but there is still room for additional works. Although, maybe, not this one. Most specialty books do include a general section on using the Internet. This work, though, goes rather overboard in that regard. I was willing to overlook some of the errors (Novell does not make antiviral software; you can't use boolean search terms with archie) in a quick guide. The content seemed a bit terse, with numerous important omission... Rest of this review on the detail page
