In 2003, the National Commission on the Public Service, chaired by Paul Volcker, issued a report detailing the serious problems within the federal government today and presenting a series of recommendations calling for changes in its organization, leadership, and operations. In this book, RAND experts in public policy and

Delivery strategies based on existing vaccination programmes and programme staff may
not require additional human resources. However, training and supervision of staff are
critical components of a delivery strategy, and will require specific funds for preparation of
guidelines, manuals, training materials and methods to evaluate competencies. Supervision
of staff should use existing human resource infrastructure, and aim to strengthen
procedures and schedules.
The virtual dead heat in the Super Tuesday Democratic primary is being attributed by the
punditocracy to the absence of any significant policy differences separating candidates
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. The two nonetheless have drawn clear distinctions
between the ways in which they each propose to govern the nation, and those differences
sound a lot like a rehashing of past debates about opposing styles of corporate leadership.
“The problems that face our world are so complex and difficult that we
will need all the talent available to solve them.” We wrote those words in
the preface of our first book, A Woman’s Place is in the Boardroom, in
2005, and reiterated them in the second, A Woman’s Place is in the Boardroom:
In 1998, the National Research Council
(NRC) established the Committee on
Science and Mathematics Teacher
Preparation (CSMTP) and charged it
with identifying critical issues in existing
practices and policies for K-12
teacher preparation in science and
mathematics. In its Statement of Task,
the NRC’s Governing Board also asked
the committee to identify recommendations
from professional organizations
regarding teacher preparation and the
quality of the K-12 teaching of science
and mathematics and to examine relevant
The IESO will continue its leadership in implementing the government’s green energy policy, and in
facilitating innovations in the way the province’s bulk power system is operated, with an ongoing
focus on reliability and efficiency. The changes underway are the most significant in the 100-plus-
year history of the province’s electricity industry.
The Commission is keen to assume leadership at the international level on this debate and will
seek close co-operation from its global partners within the Financial Stability Board and the
G20. Audit, alongside supervision and corporate governance, should be a key contributor to
financial stability as it provides assurance on the veracity of the financial health of all
companies. This assurance should reduce the risks of misstatement, and in doing so, reduce
the costs of failure that would otherwise be suffered by the company's stakeholders as well as
by the broader society.
During the last decade consumer groups, parents and teachers’ bodies, and public health
advocacy organisations have called for greater control on the marketing of foods and
beverages to children. A number of authoritative reports have highlighted the need to
restrict such marketing to ensure that children are not unduly influenced to consume foods
high in fats, sugar and salt. A 2009 review of regulations (the PolMark study1) suggested that
successful regulation required government leadership with specified timelines and clear,
Today’s Internet-savvy buyers are hungry for content. And not just any content … valuable, relevant content that offers solutions to their problems and helps them lead successful, productive, enjoyable jobs and lives. However, they are also inundated by thousands of marketing messages every day, most of which they ignore. To get through, you need to communicate differently—you need to do more than just sell products and services. You need to provide information.
The Ministry of Women's Affairs (MoWA) was established by the Bonn Agreement and was
tasked by the interim and transitional governments of Afghanistan with responsibility for
advancing the role of women. Although new as a Ministry, a precedent institution for the
promotion of women has existed since 1928, when 'Society for the Protection of Women'
was established. As a quasi-government body, the 'Society' has faded or flourished with the
changing values of the Afghan political leadership throughout the 20th Century. ...
Stock markets can be differentiated by their trading systems. These trading systems vary in the way
transactions are handled, type of transactions made, type of information available to market
participants, and the process of matching orders to sell and buy (Glen 1994).
Trading systems can be classified by the method of matching the orders, i.e. periodic vis–a vis
continuous market, and also by the presence of a market maker, i.e. continuous system with a
monopolistic specialist vis-à-vis a competition continuous market.
A perpetual challenge facing city governments is the quality of political leadership.
Eff ective mayors provide a sense of direction and help ensure that all parts of city
government are working in a coordinated and purposeful way with community
support for the city’s goals. Ineff ective mayors leave their cities to drift, allow city
departments and staff to work ineff ectively, and fail to make a connection with
citizens. With increasingly complex problems to address, the need for leadership is
Recent events make this report both timely and urgent. They have dramatically underscored the
importance of an effective, comprehensive health information infrastructure that links all health
decisionmakers, including the public. Based on public hearings about the NHII, the Committee has
determined that Federal leadership, under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is
the most important missing ingredient that could accelerate and coordinate progress on the NHII.

This is a very personal book. It has grown out of my years
observing, advising and learning lessons from some of
the world’s most successful family-owned businesses and
business-owning families. Also, the book in a sense records my personal
journey through a period of remarkable change, beginning in an era (the
late 1970s) when family companies were largely seen as quaint anachronisms
of bygone times, and misunderstood as inefficient drags on entrepreneurialism
by dint of their under-investment and parochial management
To have great sales effectiveness, you have to have a great sales team. Within all teams, whether they are NBA players, the neighborhood little league or the company softball team, there is always opportunity for conflict. The same goes for sales teams. And for independent, results-driven sales people, keeping the team in mind may not be their number one priority. So it’s important that sales leaders know how to effectively manage team conflict.
Chong and Koh’s (2003) results were similar: they showed that stock
prices, economic activities, real interest rates and real money balances in
Malaysia were linked in the long run both in the pre- and post capital control
Mukherjee and Naka (1995) applied Johansen’s (1998) VECM to analyze
the relationship between the Japanese Stock Market and exchange rate,

Leadership is required from City staf and elected oicials, from
organizations operating in diverse sectors across the city, and from
Vancouver residents—many of whom have already contributed to the
development of this plan. he City will need to lead the way in its own
operations as well, demonstrating what a Greenest City looks like in
City-run buildings, facilities, and operations. Leadership from other
levels of government and other public sector agencies will also be
critical to our success.
A plan like this is only useful when it is acted upon.
How many times have you attempted to change your
organization— whether the entity is a team, division, company,
government agency, or nonprofit? Like most organizations, yours
probably faced severe downsizing in response to the financial crisis
of 2008. Reducing personnel, retracting from markets, and
scaling down your organization must have presented a difficult
leadership challenge. Perhaps in better times you were assigned the
task of implementing a new information system, manufacturing
procedure, or customer- service process.
