Summary

Procurement with Purpose describes a growing and powerful movement – how organisations can use the money they spend with suppliers to help address wider environmental, social and economic issues. That is not just about emissions and climate change, but includes how to address issues such as biodiversity and habitat loss, plastics and waste, modern slavery, inequality and discrimination, and more. That organisational ‘buying power’ is now being used to drive change across the business and political world. 
With case studies from leading organisations, insightful analysis of  ‘business purpose’ concepts and practical guidance on implementing these ideas through the procurement and contracting cycle, Procurement with Purpose is a fascinating and valuable resource for anyone interested in how organisations can help protect and nurture this planet and its people.

    Following a deadly car crash, small-town lawyer Lance Cooper risked everything to battle one of the most powerful auto corporations in the world to get justice for a young woman. A fast-paced, journalistic account of tragedy turned to triumph, despair to hope, Cobalt Cover-Up is an inspirational, thoroughly compelling, and victorious read.  
    In the midst of his own family struggles, small-town Georgia lawyer Lance Cooper agreed to defend Ken and Beth Melton and investigate the deadly accident that killed their daughter Brooke after she inexplicably lost control of her Chevy Cobalt. But what started as a heartbreaking yet all too common lawsuit quickly escalated into a David vs. Goliath case when Cooper discovered shocking evidence that General Motors concealed an ignition switch defect for nearly a decade - resulting in 124 deaths, including Brooke's, and risking the lives of millions more. ­­ 
    Despite GM's settlement offers and attempts to bury evidence, Cooper refused to back down and worked tirelessly to expose the truth. Locked in a tenacious legal fight, Cooper and the Meltons faced incredible odds - Ken and Beth losing jobs and suffering the difficulty of grieving a beloved daughter during a court battle, Cooper risking his reputation and private practice against the overwhelming opposition from GM's team of lawyers, and both parties facing massive financial strain. Yet, in the relentless pursuit for justice and to protect future innocent lives, this small-town lawyer and a working-class American couple stared down the biggest US auto manufacturing mogul and ultimately transformed the entire industry.

    The term subconscious reflects an etymological root of the French subconscious as introduced by the renowned psychologist Pierre Janet (1859–1947), who claimed that a strong perception lay beneath the layers of the conscious mind's critical-thought mechanisms that he labeled the subconscious mind. The adjective is described in the strict psychological perception as functioning or appearing outside the territory of consciousness. Edwin A. Locke and Amy L. Kristof reiterate that there is a restriction to what can be kept in conscious contextual memory. It needs an alternate warehouse of one's knowledge and past experience, which they classify as the subconscious. 
    In 1893, Sigmund Freud interpreted the word subconscious to characterize thoughts and desires which are not available to one 's conscious frame of mind. However, he discarded the term in preference to the unconscious. Peter Gay suggests that the application of the word subconscious where the unconscious is intended to be a uniform and revealing error is construed as another school of thought that has also been duly recognized.

    Most established companies have deployed such digital technologies as the cloud, mobile apps, the internet of things, and artificial intelligence. But few established companies are designed for digital. This audiobook offers an essential guide for retooling organizations for digital success.In the digital economy, rapid pace of change in technology capabilities and customer desires means that business strategy must be fluid. As a result, the authors explain, business design has become a critical management responsibility. Effective business design enables a company to quickly pivot in response to new competitive threats and opportunities. Most leaders today, however, rely on organizational structure to implement strategy, unaware that structure inhibits, rather than enables, agility. In companies that are designed for digital, people, processes, data, and technology are synchronized to identify and deliver innovative customer solutions—and redefine strategy. Digital design, not strategy, is what separates winners from losers in the digital economy.Designed for Digital offers practical advice on digital transformation. Drawing on five years of research and in-depth case studies, this audio book is an essential guide for companies that want to disrupt rather than be disrupted in the new digital landscape.

    Todays 'free-market' philosophy of one-dollar-one-vote has all but eclipsed the traditional one-person-one-vote values of our grandparents’ generations. Our democratic and humanitarian concepts of 'all for one, one for all' and 'we're all in this together' have all but vanished. It's not my intention to start a political discussion about the rights and wrongs of national or international fiscal policies. I do not wish to delve into the wheeler-dealing of money markets and the distribution of corporate wealth.Nope. That is not what this book is about. Nevertheless, I will challenge the statement that 'Greed is good.' And by so doing, explain how I believe we can all, on a very personal level, benefit from a philosophy that is quite the opposite. Indeed, I am going to show you how generosity expedites wealth creation. But to do that, first we need to understand what generosity is.
