Summary

Includes vital coverage of how to avoid common pitfalls when first introducing Data Science to the enterprise. 
The need for precise, actionable, reliable, real-time Business Intelligence (BI) lies at the heart of the role of Big Data in modern commerce. In turn, the art of “Data Science” lies at the nexus of Big Data and BI, providing the essential methods by which BI can be extracted from Big Data's great black mass of constantly flowing, unstructured information. 
This combination has a created a new profession: an elite and specialized class of highly-compensated professionals specially skilled at data cleaning, analysis, and visualization. We call them Data Scientists, and their evolving role in the organization is one about which managers must have a clear understanding. 
As shown in What Every Manager Should Know About Big Data and Data Science, integrating data scientists (and the general practice of Data Science) into the organization is often a delicate process involving the redefinition of traditional roles within the enterprise as well as dealing with issues of territoriality amongst peers. 
To accomplish this task, managers need a firm knowledge of the what and whys of Data Science, the specific BI needs it is uniquely positioned to service, and the procsses by which it functions. 
Such is the knowledge this important book provides.

    What do the latest financial thinking and ancient spiritual teachings reveal to us about financial freedom? Top financial advisor Brent Kessel insists financial success and security is "not about the money." Rather, it's about what's inside us—first understanding your emotional relationship to money, and only then taking action. It's Not About the Money expertly and compassionately guides you along the path to financial security and true peace of mind. 
    Kessel, founder of two top wealth-management firms, has the inside scoop on the higher wisdom of personal finances, and he wants to share it with you. Through extensive experience as a financial advisor and spiritual seeker, Kessel has discovered that people need to understand their core financial story in order to make meaningful changes. Some of us are savers or caretakers, says Kessel, while others are pleasure seekers and spend like Hollywood stars; some people are idealists who place greater value on creativity or compassion than on financial security; some of us innocently believe our finances will work out without effort; and others obsess about building empires with lasting value. It's Not About the Money will help you identify your money type, providing information and resources as well as exercises and meditations to inspire a fresh approach to your relationship with money that will change your life.

  • Game of Thrones on Business - Strategy morality and leadership lessons from the world’s most talked about TV show - cover

    Game of Thrones on Business -...

    We have always learned through stories, and in Game of Thrones on Business managers learn from the parallels drawn between HBO’s global phenomenon and today’s business world. The authors also use stories and characters from the series to breathe life into management theory. Readers will discover:
    • What Tywin Lannister has in common with Steve Jobs;
    • Why Ned Stark should have had a scenario-planning meeting;
    • What Daenerys Targaryen can teach us about servant leadership;
    • How to network like Littlefinger;
    • Why behaving like Jon Snow will just antagonise your boss.
    Game of Thrones may look like a story that is as far removed from modern business as is possible, but look a little closer and you’ll notice that the differences are merely superficial: that hostile small council meeting is a boardroom showdown, Daenerys Targaryen is the business ingenue you can’t afford to disregard and the White Walkers are a slowly advancing threat to your company’s survival.
    If you think you can stomach the cut and thrust of business this book will show you the insider tricks for success and the hidden pitfalls to watch out for. But remember, if you want to go all the way it takes full commitment: when you play the game of thrones you win or you die. There is no middle ground.

    Learn the Secrets Used by Successful Traders to Anticipate the Markets and Make a Profit 
    Still struggling to make money trading? 
    Newsletters and Tips 
    Perhaps you subscribe to a newsletter, or pick up tips from "experts"? And you trade your own account based on what they tell you?? 
    Look, reputable newsletters don't allow their editors to take a position in their recommendations before publication — so there's no conflict. So do you think that the writer cares as much about your money as you do? 
    And disreputable newsletters and tip sheets are used by shysters to inflate buying interest in a particular stock and send the price up, allowing the author to get a profit on shares he already owns. It's called pump and dump, and I expect you've experienced that at least once. 
    Either way, do you want to trust your trading account to what they say? 
    You Bought a Trading Plan 
    And followed it? Your plan takes a couple of indicators, say the MACD and RSI, and tells you what to look for, so you can make a trade. These plans are "one size fits all" and never tailored to your appetite for risk, which means you may find them hard to stick with, or they may give you sleepless nights. 
    Or maybe you bought a black box program that shoots out recommendations — good luck with that! 
    Wouldn't you like to know about all the other indicators you can use and their settings, so that you can be in control and make your own selections to suit your way of trading? 
    What You Get 
    Mastering Technical Analysis reveals all the methods and techniques that are available to you to ramp up your trading performance. You'll find out 
    * How to read charts 
    * How to understand indicators 
    * How to earn money consistently 
    * How to spot a trend 
    * When to trade - and when not to 
    * How to figure the amount you should trade 
    * When to enter a trade 
    *Where to set your stop losses, and why 
    * How to prepare your personal trading plan 
    This book will give you the confidence to forge your own path in the markets. You can develop strategies that suit your lifestyle and goals. You will know when to exit before you even enter a trade. It has chapters explaining each type of financial market, and even reveals option strategies that limit your risk. 
    Your Trading Reference 
    Maybe you considered buying "Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets" by John J. Murphy, a landmark bestselling trading reference book. Did you see that it is "revised"? Yes, the original 1986 version was updated in 1999! Don't look for any recent information, such as Ichimoku (Cloud Charting) in there, as you won't find it. 
    Until now, if you wanted a complete reference to technical analysis, you had to pay heavily for it. The discounted price of Murphy's book, in electronic version, is still more than $60. You don't need to pay that much, like I did.
