Summary

Increasingly, business success depends on good management. And keep in mind that the 'business' here can be a company, a non-profit organization, a company, or even a personal project.There are methods that become disposable and obsolete over time. But in the case of the principles of scientific management you will realize that their pillars are still increasingly valid, needing only to contextualize for the technologies currently used, but the need to treat management more and more as science continues.Several companies fail before completing their second year. Many people try to put their ideas into practice in an amateur way and end up frustrated. In this book, which is a classic of administration, you can observe important concepts such as:1. Leadership2. Productivity3. Division of labour4. Study and times and movements5. Creation of standardized operating procedures6. Need for training and training7. The need for collaboration between managers and employees.8. The importance of planning activities, among others.Want an example of how important this is? Look at the case of the covid-19 pandemic: how important was the planning work, the division of labor, increasing efficiency in large-scale vaccine production. Definition and standardization of hygiene procedures for the population among other things.For a long time, the ideas of scientific management were criticized because they claimed that only managers should think and that workers should only learn and execute, without question.In this book you will see that, even in Taylor's original ideas, there was room for workers to submit proposals to improve processes and that such proposals should be carefully analyzed by management.

    Crack The Funding Code - How...

    Lack of funding is one of the biggest reasons small businesses fail. In 2016 in the United States alone, more than 31 percent of small business owners reported that they could not access adequate capital, and the lack of capital prevented them from growing the business/expanding operations, increasing inventory, or financing increased sales.  
    Most business owners believe that their only feasible funding options are (1) savings or personal credit, (2) friends and family, or (3) bank loans. They may have heard about venture capitalists or angel investors, but they don't have enough information about what these investors do, what they can provide for a business, and on what terms. What's worse, entrepreneurs often don't know how to access the people who are looking to put their money into young companies with potential.  
    Crack the Funding Code will show listeners how to find the money, create pitches that attract investors, and then structure fair, ethical deals that will bring them new sources of outside capital and invaluable professional advice. It will give listeners the broader perspective - how funding works, how investors think, and what they need to hear to put their money where your mouth is.

    Drawing on exclusive access to J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon and a tightly bonded team of bankers known on Wall Street as the "Morgan Mafia"-as well as in-depth interviews with dozens of other key players, including Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner-Gillian Tett brings to life in gripping detail how the Morgan team's bold ideas for a whole new kind of financial alchemy helped to ignite a revolution in banking, and how that revolution escalated wildly out of control.The deeply reported and lively narrative takes readers behind the scenes, to the inner sanctums of elite finance and to the secretive reaches of what came to be known as the "shadow banking" world. The story begins with the intense Morgan brainstorming session in 1994 beside a pool in Boca Raton, where the team cooked up a dazzling new idea for the exotic financial product known as credit derivatives. That idea would rip around the banking world, catapult Morgan to the top of the turbocharged derivatives trade, and fuel an extraordinary banking boom that seemed to have unleashed banks from ages-old constraints of risk.But when the Morgan team's derivatives dream collided with the housing boom and was perverted-through hubris, delusion, and sheer greed-by such titans of banking as Citigroup, UBS, Deutsche Bank, and the thundering herd at Merrill Lynch (even as J.P. Morgan itself stayed well away from the risky concoctions others were peddling), catastrophe followed. Tett's access to Dimon and the J.P. Morgan leaders who so skillfully steered their bank away from the wild excesses of others sheds invaluable light not only on the untold story of how they engineered their bank's escape from carnage but also on how possible it was for the larger banking world, regulators, and rating agencies to have spotted, and heeded, the terrible risks of a meltdown.A tale of blistering brilliance and willfully blind ambition, Fool's Gold is both a rare journey deep inside the arcane and wildly competitive world of high finance and a vital contribution to understanding how the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression was perpetrated.
