Drawn deeper into her ancestors’ lives, Althea begins to unearth their disturbing history…and the part she’s meant to play in it.

    Synopsis
    Bestselling author Winner NSW Premier’s Literary Awards / Book of the Year Award 2015 “Watson’s magnificent, celebratory, contradictory study of the Australian bush will challenge the national imagination.” —Thomas Keneally, winner of the Booker Prize An unputdownable journey, showcasing Watson’s trademark literary gift and sardonic wit, through the Australian landscape and character. While most Australians live in cities clinging to the coastal fringe, our sense of what an Australian is, or should be, is drawn from the vast and varied inland called the bush. But what do we mean by “the bush,” and how has it shaped us? Starting with his forebears’ battle to drive back nature and eke a living from the land, Don Watson explores the bush as it was and as it now is: the triumphs and the ruination, the commonplace and the bizarre, the stories we like to tell about ourselves and the national character, and those we don’t. A milestone work of memoir, travel writing, and history, The Bush takes us on a profoundly revelatory and entertaining journey through the Australian landscape and character.

    This book will do for teamwork what the cult classic Business Model Generation did for strategy. In 2010, Tim Clark helped create Business Model Generation, a groundbreaking global bestseller on how enterprises deliver value customers. In 2012, Clark and partner Bruce Hazen followed up with Business Model You, pioneering the personal business model technique for individuals. In their new book, Clark and Hazen turn this sights on teams, showing managers how much better their enterprises function when individuals and teams know their role in creating value for customers. Even great leaders face management problems every day. Do we have the right people in the right seats? How do they know what is a priority? Are we making it clear to everyone--across meetings, reports, and projects--how the enterprise creates value, and how each team member fits in? Through case studies, brief exercises and easy-to-follow visuals, Clark and Hazen show how leaders of any group, regardless of size, can help people work independently and passionately toward shared goals without excessive turnover, training, or culture building exercises. While any leader will benefit from Business Model For Teams, it is the ideal book for those confronting big market changes or overseeing new groups of colleagues.

    Synopsis
    A business's overall strategy may be set at board level, but many people throughout the organisation will be involved in deciding that strategy and implementing it—making decisions that are strategic in nature. On these decisions hangs the future of the business: how successful it is, even whether it is successful. Yet business history is full of strategic decisions, both big and small, that were weak, poorly conceived and consequently disastrous. This book looks at the whole process of strategic decision-making: the forces that influence decision-makers, the traps they fall into, the times when a rational approach to decision-making is required and those when intuition is needed, the techniques that can help managers reach a strategically sound decision, and the questions they should ask themselves before coming to a decision.By looking at the range of strategic decisions that companies face and the techniques—old and new—that can help, this book provides insights into how to make effective strategic decisions. Jeremy Kourdi is a freelance writer and business consultant. During his career he has worked with many well-known organisations in the UK and internationally including the Economist, IMD Business School in Lausanne, and the Chartered Management Institute. He has an MA in International Relations and is the author of twelve business books and many articles.
