In Problem Identified: And You're Probably Not Part of the Solution, cartoonist Scott Adams affectionately ridicules inept office colleagues--those co-workers behind the pointless projects, interminable meetings, and ill-conceived "downsizings"--in this thematically linked collection of Dilbert comic strips. Dilbert, the benchmark of office humors, continues to use its considerable powers of humor for the greater good, helping us to fight the good fight at work despite those around us whose job descriptions seem to include undercutting morale and generally doing everything possible to lead us into economic ruin.

Inverse and crack identification problems are of paramount importance for health monitoring and quality control purposes arising in critical applications in civil, aeronautical, nuclear, and general mechanical engineering. Mathematical modeling and the numerical study of these problems require high competence in computational mechanics and applied optimization. This is the first monograph which provides the reader with all the necessary information. Delicate computational mechanics modeling, including nonsmooth unilateral contact effects, is done using boundary element techniques, which have a certain advantage for the construction of parametrized mechanical models. Both elastostatic and harmonic or transient dynamic problems are considered. The inverse problems are formulated as output error minimization problems and they are theoretically studied as a bilevel optimization problem, also known as a mathematical problem with equilibrium constraints. Beyond classical numerical optimization, soft computing tools (neural networks and genetic algorithms) and filter algorithms are used for the numerical solution. The book provides all the required material for the mathematical and numerical modeling of crack identification testing procedures in statics and dynamics and includes several thoroughly discussed applications, for example, the impact-echo nondestructive evaluation technique. Audience: The book will be of interest to structural and mechanical engineers involved in nondestructive testing and quality control projects as well as to research engineers and applied mathematicians who study and solve related inverse problems. People working on applied optimization and soft computing will find interesting problems to apply to their methods and all necessary material to continue research in this field.

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Problem-Oriented Policing (POP) approach was one response to a crisis in policing that emerged in the 1970s and 1980s. Police were not being effective in preventing crime because they had become focused on the ¿means¿ of policing and had neglected the ¿goals¿ of preventing and controlling crime. The ¿problem¿ rather than calls or crime incidents should be the focus. This study conducted a review to examine the effectiveness of POP in reducing crime and disorder. Studies had to meet 3 criteria: (1) the SARA model was used; (2) a comparison group was included; (3) at least one crime or disorder outcome was reported. Only 10 studies that met the criteria; there was a modest but statistically significant impact of POP on crime.

"I enjoyed this book. It provides excellent information on the current use of healthcare teams and partnerships. It is a worthwhile resource for anyone interested in developing and working with healthcare teams." Score: 100, 5 Stars.--Doody's Medical Reviews Teamwork is an undisputed asset for reducing nursing and medical errors, improving quality of patient care, resolving workload issues, and avoiding burnout. This text helps to foster the leadership expertise and partnerships that will facilitate the delivery of the highest-quality care. It based on the time-tested wisdom that leadership knowledge, skills and, competencies gained by training a group of nurses in the same organization rather than a single nurse are much more likely to result in genuine organizational transformation. It is the only text available to focus in depth on building and maintaining effective partnerships, motivating and developing others in the team, organizational analysis, strategizing, communicating, planning and managing change, measuring team and partnership effectiveness through metrics, and leveraging results within and outside of the organization. Case studies across a variety of organizations and environments and drawn from years of nursing team and leadership training, illuminate key points and provide readers with real life examples of the application of key concepts. These include such scenarios as developing a team to create, implement and evaluate a nurse residency program in a large tertiary hospital; creating a cross-agency public health team to plan and deploy rural H1N1 responses; founding a multi-campus team for the creation and implementation of a new BSN curriculum; and leadership in a partnership to support the legislative creation of a nursing workforce center. Learning objectives, tables, charts, models, and questions for thought in each chapter reinforce information in the text. Plentiful references provide opportunities for further study. Authored by a noted expert in education, team building, and policy making in nursing and health care, the book will be of value to emerging and seasoned leaders and graduate educators and students, including CNL, DNP, and NPs. Key Features: Examines, in depth, team leadership and professional, clinical, and educational partnering in and for nursing Features real-life case studies in diverse practice and academic centers Offers a practical approach to applying team leadership and partnership concepts when facilitating health care change Reviews team models and skills, how to take action, issues and challenges along the way, measuring results, and applying leverage to sustain gains Presents information in a concise, step-by-step format replete with learning objectives, tables, charts, and questions for thought

The volume collects papers illustrating the work done within a research project on structural identification and diagnostics. The papers deal with problems taken from civil engineering applications and cover various topics or aspects in this field. The focus is mainly addressed to dynamic identification techniques. In a field like that of inverse problems, where the lack of a satisfactory framework of general properties may obstruct applications to practical problems, the book offers a collection of simple case studies where numerical simulation and experimental measurements are combined to get diagnostic information. It's worth mentioning a paper that specifically confines to crack detection in beams and rods and establishes a series of rigorously proved results that may turn useful in damage detection. In particular, the paper provides the answer to a recently raised question as to the minimal number of frequency measurements needed in order to localise the crack.

When budgets are dwindling, deadlines passing, and tempers flaring, the usual response is to browbeat the project team and point fingers of blame. Not helpful. For these situations, what is needed is an objective process for accurately assessing what is wrong and a clear plan of action for fixing the problem. Rescue the Problem Project provides project managers, executives, and customers with the answers they require. Turnaround specialist Todd Williams has worked with dozens of companies in multiple industries resuscitating failing projects. In this new book, he reveals an in-depth, start-to-finish process that includes: * Techniques for identifying the root causes of the trouble * Steps for putting projects back on track-audit the project, analyze the data, negotiate the solution, and execute the new plan * Nearly 70 real-world examples of what works, what doesn't, and why * Guidelines for avoiding problems in subsequent projects Many books explain how to run a project, but only this one shows how to bring it back from the brink of disaster. And with 65% of projects failing to meet goals and 25% cancelled outright, that's essential information!

this monographis based on two courses in computational mathematics and operative research, which were given by the author in recent years to doctorate and PhD students. The text focuses on an aspect of the theory of inverse problems, which is usually referred to as identification of parameters (numbers, vectors, matrices, functions) appearing in differential or integrodifferential equations. The parameters of such equations are either quite unknown or partially unknown, however knowledge about these is usually essential as they describe the intrinsic properties of the material or substance under consideration.
