Summary

Crafting the Movement presents an explanation of why the Swedish working class so unanimously adopted reformism during the interwar period. Jenny Jansson discusses the precarious time for the labor movement after the Russian Revolution in 1917 that sparked a trend towards radicalization among labor organizations and communist organizations throughout Europe and caused an identity crisis in class organizations. She reveals that the leadership of the Trade Union Confederation (LO) was well aware of the identity problems that the left-wing factions had created for the reformist unions.Crafting the Movement explains how this led labor movement leaders towards a re-formulation of the notion of the worker by constructing an organizational identity that downplayed class struggle and embraced discipline, peaceful solutions to labor market problems, and cooperation with the employers. As Jansson shows, study activities arranged by the Workers' Educational Association became the main tool of the Trade Union Confederation's identity policy in the 1920s and 1930s and its successful outcome paved the way for the well-known "Swedish Model."Thanks to generous funding from Uppsala University, the ebook editions of this book are available as Open Access volumes from Cornell Open (cornellopen.org) and other Open Access repositories.

Now everyone can learn to give powerful, on-target speeches that capture an audience's attention and drive home a message. The key is not just in the delivery techniques, but in tapping into the power of language. Prepared by an award-winning writer, this authoritative speech-writing guide covers every essential element of a great speech, including outlining and organizing, beginning with a bang, making use of action verbs and vivid nouns, and handling questions from the audience. Plus, the book includes excerpts from some of history's most memorable speeches--eloquent words to contemplate and emulate."

    A groundbreaking, step-by-step guide on how to master a powerful narrative, get your point across, and achieve long-term results in your business, nonprofit, or campaign.     In this era of information overload and real-time communication where anyone can publish and broadcast to millions of people with the click of a button, there is no shortage of people talking about the need to get their message across, or having a “narrative.” But for business, marketing, and political campaigns, there is no definitive how-to on crafting a compelling narrative that achieves lasting results. And without a narrative, no amount of framing, complex messaging, or facts will succeed.       On Message solves that problem, illustrating how effective communicators understand the power of narrative, emotion, and simple messaging, and posits that having a personal, emotional narrative is the basis for all successful communication.       Drawing on Zach Friend’s own experience and insights from politics, advertising, corporate communications, entertainment, and social psychology, On Message provides a simple process for applying the powerful principles behind crafting a narrative, ultimately paving the path to success. Specifically, readers will:       -Learn how to focus their communication efforts in a dramatically more powerful way on the most important factor, narrative;    -Master the mindset needed to become a better communicator and make a forceful impact on their audience and clients;    -Stop wasting time and energy gathering unnecessary facts and data that don’t advance their message; and    -Get results faster by using narrative as a productive tool that will fuel success.

    The political establishment would have you believe that Ireland’s economic crisis is over. But leading Irish economist Cormac Lucey shows that it is premature to declare an end to the euro-crisis. He argues that joining the single currency was the pivotal cause of Ireland’s economic bust and it is also the single biggest threat to its recovery. 
     Plan Bproposes a concrete plan for exiting the euro and restructuring Ireland’s debt mountains, showing that fears of what will happen if Ireland leaves the euro are overstated. It will set Ireland on a path to higher economic growth, lower emigration and a more sustainable future. 
     If you are tired of hearing that Plan A is the only game in town – another difficult budget, meagre economic growth, high unemployment, mass emigration and staggeringly high debt – read Plan B and be reassured there is an alternative.

    Project Management for Small Projects shows you how to tailor bureaucratic planning processes to a sleek minimum while still keeping your project running like a well-oiled machine. 
     
    Managing projects requires time, effort, and discipline, regardless of the project size. The difference between managing larger and smaller projects is not only the amount of time, effort, and discipline but also the processes and tools. For years, this book has helped managers of small projects design scalable processes and simplified tools for immediate use in managing small projects. And since most small projects tend to be similar in structure or outcome, a template for one project can be used for future projects. 
     
    This third edition has been updated to align with the Project Management Institute's Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) and provides new tools, templates, and techniques to support the revised processes. In addition, there is new material on agile project management and on the essential leadership skills for small-project managers.
