This book brings together a distinguished set of contributors from a variety of disciplines to examine current theories of institutional change. The chapters highlight the limitations of these theories, finding them lacking in the analytic tools necessary to identify the changes occurring at a national level, and therefore tend to explain many changes and innovation as simply another version of previous situations. Instead a model emerges of contemporary political economies developing in incremental but cumulatively transformative processes. The contributors show that a wide, but not infinite, variety of models of institutional change exist which can meaningfully distinguished and analytically compared. They offer an empirically grounded typology of modes of institutional change that offer important insights on mechanisms of social and political stability, and evolution generally.
A guide to the craft of script supervising, this book includes practical instruction and examples explaining the skills needed to work as a professional script supervisor. Mary Cybulski details training to be and working as a script supervisor. She covers the basic skills of breaking down a script, taking notes on set, matching, cheating, screen direction, and what the director, actors, and editor expect from a script supervisor. Also included are many of the more subtle, but just as important, skills: how to get a job, how to tell what is important in a script and on set, how to get along with the cast and crew, and how not to get overwhelmed when there is too much information to process.
The interest in Business Continuity has gained significant momentum in the last few years, especially with the Y2K non-event, the increasing corporate dependence on computer systems and the growing levels of devastation associated with recent disasters. This book takes an organization interested in continuity planning through the processes needed to develop an effective plan. ´´Jim Barnes has succeeded in providing us a much-needed tool, with which we can condidently face many of the day-to-day challenges of business contingency planning ... With this book, he has taken an important step in removing much of the guesswork and frustration from the business continuity implementation project.´´ From the Foreword by Philip Jan Rothstein, FBCI, President of Rothstein Associates Inc., Publisher of The Rothstein Catalog on Disaster Recovery, 2001
Das Buch behandelt die Themen Business Continuity und IT-Notfallmanagement ganzheitlich - ausgehend von den Geschäftsprozessen einer Organisation, über die ggf. vorhandene IT-Unterstützung bis hin zur Absicherung benötigter personeller, organisatorischer und technischer Ressourcen. Die Autoren stellen das Managementsystem nach den einschlägigen Standards ISO 22301, 27001/27031, BSI 100-4 dar und vertiefen insbesondere die wichtigen Schritte der Risikoanalyse und der Business Impact Analyse. Zudem werden präventive, detektierende und reaktive Maßnahmen aus allen Bereichen erläutert. Praxisrelevante Fallbeispiele unterstützen den Leser bei der Einrichtung von Business Continuity Management (BCM) und IT-Notfallmanagement in der eigenen Organisation. Synergieeffekte zwischen BCM und Informationssicherheit werden dabei besonders hervorgehoben.
