            At Amazon, 'Day One' is code for inventing like a startup with little regard for legacy. Day Two is, in Jeff Bezos's own words, is 'stasis, followed by irrelevance, followed by excruciating, painful decline, followed by death.' Most companies today are set up for Day Two. They bu...ild advantages and defend them fiercely rather than invent the future. But Amazon and fellow tech titans Facebook, Google, and Microsoft are operating in Day One: they prioritize reinvention over tradition and collaboration over ownership. Through 130 interviews with insiders, from Mark Zuckerberg to hourly workers, Always Day One reveals the tech giants' blueprint for sustainable success. Kantrowitz uncovers the engine propelling the tech giants' continued dominance at a stage when most big companies begin to decline. And he shows the way forward for everyone who wants to compete with, and beat, the titans.

            With the rapid development of the Internet of Things, a gap has emerged in skills versus knowledge in an industry typically segmented into hardware versus software. Practitioners are now expected to possess capabilities across the spectrum of hardware and software skills to creat...e these smart devices. This book explores these skill sets in an instructive way, beginning at the foundations of what makes smart technology smart, addressing the basics of hardware and hardware design, software, user experiences, and culminating in the considerations and means of building a fully formed smart device, capable of being used in a commercial capacity, versus a DIY project. Practical Smart Device Design and Construction includes a set of starter projects designed to encourage the novice to build and learn from doing. Each project also includes a summary guiding you where to go next, and how to tie the practical, hands-on experience together with what they have learned to take the next step on their own. What You'll Learn Practical smart device design and construction considerations such as size, power consumption, wiring needs, analog vs digital, and sensor types and uses Methods and tools for creating their own designs such as circuit board designs; and wiring and prototyping tools Hands-on guidance through their own prototype projects and building it alongside the projects in this book Software considerations for speed versus ease, security, and basics of programming and data analytics for smart devices Who This Book Is For Those with some technical skills, or at least a familiarity with technical topics, who are looking for the means and skills to start experimenting with combined hardware and software projects in order to gain familiarity and comfort with the smart device space.

            This book examines the definition of complexity and its meaning, and its components relative to simple and complicated problems - from a project portfolio perspective and in engineering terms. It investigates its origins in terms of complex adaptive systems and compares the influ...ences on the business world to those of systems observed in the natural world. It examines how systems theory can be used to gain a better understanding of the increasingly complex environment within which a modern portfolio exists. The book navigates through complexity by using tested engineering approaches to ensure a portfolio continues to maximize return.

            It takes 17 years on average to bring new health ideas into evidence-based clinical practice. The growing replicability crisis in science further delays these new miracles. Blockchain can improve replicability and hasten the knowledge translation process. This book is about scien...ce, its value to our health, and how we can use blockchain to improve its quality and impact. The book will look at science and medicine from an insider's perspective, and describe the processes, successes, shortcomings and opportunities for advancement for the lay audience. It will give the reader a non-technical look at the emerging world of blockchain technology; what it is, where it is useful, and how it can improve science and health. It will lay out a roadmap for this application to transform how we develop knowledge about disease and accelerate cures to improve our lives. In the first part, the authors look at science as a process and how this drives advancement in medicine. They'll then shed a light on some of science's shortcomings, including the reproducibility crisis and problems with misaligned incentives (i.e. publish or perish). The book applies a breakdown of critical components to the functional steps in the scientific process and outlines how the open science movement is looking to improve these. It will also highlight the limit of these fixes with current technology, incentives and structure of science. The second part, looks at the history of distributed ledgers from pre-computer versions to the current applications of blockchain/distributed ledger technology and gives an overview of use cases for the technology across industries, including finance, manufacturing and healthcare. Additional focus will be provided to the application challenges with more complex data systems and the need for a contributing network of users. The third and last part, looks at the principle of a distributed autonomous organization (DAO) applied to the health sciences. The authors examine how thi

            Today, there are few in senior management positions who can afford to ignore modern information technology, and few individuals who would prefer to be without it. Modern IT is key to organizational performance; yet we often assume the benefits will occur without forethought or ef...fort. As managerial tasks become more complex, so the nature of the required information systems changes - from structured, routine support to ad hoc, unstructured, complex enquiries at the highest levels of management.
