Rework shows you a better, faster, easier way to succeed in business. Most business books give you the same old advice: Write a business plan, study the competition, seek investors, yadda yadda. If you're looking for a book like that, put this one back on the shelf. Read it and you'll know why plans are actually harmful, why you don't need outside investors, and why you're better off ignoring the competition. The truth is, you need less than you think. You don't need to be a workaholic. You don't need to staff up. You don't need to waste time on paperwork or meetings. You don't even need an office. Those are all just excuses. What you really need to do is stop talking and start working. This book shows you the way. You'll learn how to be more productive, how to get exposure without breaking the bank, and tons more counterintuitive ideas that will inspire and provoke you. With its straightforward language and easy-is-better approach, Rework is the perfect playbook for anyone who’s ever dreamed of doing it on their own. Hardcore entrepreneurs, small-business owners, people stuck in day jobs they hate, victims of "downsizing," and artists who don’t want to starve anymore will all find valuable guidance in these pages.

It is time for a new conversation. Amid the biggest economic transformation in a century, the challenge of our time is to make sure that all Americans benefit from the wave of digital revolutions around the world that have permeated and upended modern life. Yet today's economic arguments seem stuck. We need a new vision of a hopeful future and a new action agenda. So many Americans are uncertain about the future. How can there be so many paths to opportunity with so few people traveling them? As a nation, we have to understand what is required to help Americans succeed now, and how to prepare our country for what comes next. We have been here before. A hundred years ago, America experienced the greatest economic transformation and technological revolution in its history. The transformation of the past twenty years—as the world has moved through the information era into the digital age—has turned our life and work upside down once again. It is a time of tremendous change but also of tremendous possibility. Rework America is a group of American leaders who know from experience the challenges we face—and the potential solutions. In America's Moment they suggest a practical agenda for an exciting future. It is illustrated by people who are already showing the way and includes actions Americans can take today in their own communities: preparing people to succeed, using the reach of the Internet and data to innovate jobs and to reach new markets all over the world, using technology to match employers and workers, and transitioning to a "no-collar" working world— neither blue collar nor white collar. Set against the history of how Americans succeeded once before in remaking their country, America's Moment is about the future. It describes how the same forces of change—technology and a networked world—can become tools that can open opportunity to everyone.

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Computer Science - Software, grade: 1, , course: MS in Project Management, language: English, abstract: This research quantified the role of the different factors of rework including project planning (PP), software requirements specifications document quality (SRSDQ), software testing (ST), software requirements management (SRM), software requirements traceability (SRT), maturity of software development life cycle (SDLC) approach (MSDLCA), changing requirements (CR) & scope creep (SC) with rework & project success (PS) using automated software requirements management tools (UseofSRMT). The underlying associations of the above factors of rework in SDLC and UseofSRMT with rework & PS were quantified through a survey conducted in the software houses. The study quantified the magnitude of rework which was increased/decreased by these factors of rework. The study also quantified the magnitude of PS increased/decreased by these factors of rework. This study concluded that UseofSRMT played a moderating role between factors of rework and PS. The study also quantified the mediating role of rework between the factors of rework & PS. The study contributed that rework was avoidable in SDLC. Major causes of unsuccessful software projects were determined. Most effective features of software requirements management tools (SRMT) were considered to determine their role as an effective methodology for PS. PS could never be guaranteed by just achieving project milestones/goals in terms of the triple constraints of time, budget & schedule.

Rita McLennon is a successful fashion industry executive cut from the same mold as Miranda Priestly (played by Meryl Streep) in "The Devil Wears Prada," whose domineering ways have left her unmarried. She represses the volatile mixture of emotions created when her sexual frustration is combined with a responsibility to discipline her nephew John. Getting John out of a scrape with the law however, provides the lead up to her introduction to a similar group of women - who have discovered how powerful an outlet dominating a man can be. About the Authors When it comes to the portrayal of erotic spanking, Ed Lee was the original trailblazer through his company Nu-West/Leda. Nu-West is the oldest and largest producer of spanking and corporal punishment related videos in the world. The company began in 1978 by selling photo sets and 8MM movies. Four years later they produced their first video, and now have over a thousand titles. No matter what your taste in discipline that involves a female, whether it is female submissive, female dominant, spanking, caning, strapping or whipping, you will find something that interests you in their huge collection of videos. Checkout their large selection of free video previews at: www.nu-westleda.com The Poser Artist is a relatively new author, who creates fantasy artwork and stories featuring traditional (M/F, F/M, F/F) corporal punishment carried out in authoritarian settings (prison, school, domestic) - where the characters act thinly oblivious to the inherent sexuality of administering discipline to a well shaped, submissively posed backside. For plausibility, the stories are set in time periods or places where such practices were (or are) a very much justified, accepted, and even encouraged norm - creating a "romance novel" effect with artwork that's neither too heavy (into the BDSM scene) nor too light (at the unicorns and roses end of the scale).

Some of the Dead Sea Scrolls are texts which rewrite the Hebrew Bible. They differ from the literary products of the Qumran ascetic community by missing the sectarian particular style and terminology. These rewritten Bible texts may therefore shed light on the origins and sources of this community. Most of the scholarly attention has been focused on the larger specimens of this genre, such as Jubilees and the Genesis Apocryphon. The present volume assembles for the first time eleven smaller texts of this type and analyzes them in order to see how they fit into the wider picture of the scrolls.

The book is organized around basic principles of software project management: planning and estimating, measuring and controlling, leading and communicating, and managing risk. Introduces software development methods, from traditional (hacking, requirements to code, and waterfall) to iterative (incremental build, evolutionary, agile, and spiral). Illustrates and emphasizes tailoring the development process to each project, with a foundation in the fundamentals that are true for all development methods. Topics such as the WBS, estimation, schedule networks, organizing the project team, and performance reporting are integrated, rather than being relegating to appendices. Each chapter in the book includes an appendix that covers the relevant topics from CMMI-DEV-v1.2, IEEE/ISO Standards 12207, IEEE Standard 1058, and the PMI® Body of Knowledge.
