Learning, Unlearning and Re-learning Curves (Volume IV of the Working Guides to Estimating & Forecasting series) focuses in on Learning Curves, and the various tried and tested models of Wright, Crawford, DeJong, Towill-Bevis and others. It explores the differences and similarities between the various models and examines the key properties that Estimators and Forecasters can exploit. A discussion about Learning Curve Cost Drivers leads to the consideration of a little used but very powerful technique of Learning Curve modelling called Segmentation, which looks at an organisation’s complex learning curve as the product of multiple shallower learning curves. Perhaps the biggest benefit is that it simplifies the calculations in Microsoft Excel where there is a change in the rate of learning observed or expected. The same technique can be used to model and calibrate discontinuities in the learning process that result in setbacks and uplifts in time or cost. This technique is compared with other, better known techniques such as Anderlohr’s. Equivalent Unit Learning is another, relative new technique that can be used alongside traditional completed unit learning to give an early warning of changes in the rates of learning. Finally, a Learning Curve can be exploited to estimate the penalty of collaborative working across multiple partners. Supported by a wealth of figures and tables, this is a valuable resource for estimators, engineers, accountants, project risk specialists, as well as students of cost engineering.

One view of education (appealing to the Latin root "educare" – "to train or mold") aims to fill students' heads with knowledge and turn them into disciplined, normalized and potentially productive members of the workforce. An alternative (appealing to the Latin root "educere" – "to lead out or draw out") wants to produce well-trained minds and create individuals capable of questioning, critical thinking, imagination, and self-reflective deliberation as engaged citizens. This book commends a third way, inspired by the Greek notion of "paideia", which sees education as 'the process of educating person into their true form, the real and genuine human nature'. This education is not about learning a trade. It is a dynamic living thing in which the ability to UNlearn is essential for developing a good and capable citizen, trained for freedom, autonomy, and virtue.

Violent physical abuse leaves worse scars on the psyche than on the skin… So much so that an abuse victim has to unlearn the entirety of her life to learn to trust… And still flinches from even a gentle, comforting touch. When a beloved child dies, a family grieves together… But when that death is a suicide, the family falls apart. For there are unanswered questions, burdens of guilt, of having failed a loved one, of not having been there for them to lean on… It takes another such sufferer to bind the family together again. Unlearning presents a touching tale of deep passion, dark fears, violent hatred and infinite tenderness…

Unlearning The Colonial Cultures Of Planning

Colonialization has never failed to provoke discussion and debate over its territorial, economic and political projects, and their ongoing consequences. This work argues that the state-based activity of planning was integral to these projects in conceptualizing, shaping and managing place in settler societies. Planning was used to appropriate and then produce territory for management by the state and in doing so, became central to the colonial invasion of settler states. Moreover, the book demonstrates how the colonial roots of planning endure in complex (post)colonial societies and how such roots, manifest in everyday planning practice, continue to shape land use contests between indigenous people and planning systems in contemporary (post)colonial states.

This book refines the discursive theory of democratization by juxtaposing the elite and lay discourses in post-Soviet Russia (1996–2008). Through examining how Russians position themselves as political subjects, the analysis demonstrates that Russians rarely identify as true democrats.

Unlearning Meditation

When we meditate, our minds often want to do something other than the meditation instructions we've been taught. When that happens repeatedly, we may feel frustrated to the point of abandoning meditation altogether. Jason Siff invites us to approach meditation in a new way, one that honors the part of us that doesn't want to do the instructions. He teaches us how to become more tolerant of intense emotions, sleepiness, compelling thoughts, fantasies—the whole array of inner experiences that are usually considered hindrances to meditation. The meditation practice he presents in Unlearning Meditation is gentle, flexible, permissive, and honest, and it's been wonderfully effective for opening up meditation for people who thought they could never meditate, as well as for injecting a renewed energy for practice into the lives of seasoned practitioners.

McGill and Slocum have taken organizational learning one step further using practical examples to excite controversy about how organizations can learn to become smart."--Richard J. Haayen Retired Chairman of the Board and CEO Allstate Insurance Company Executive-In-Residence Southern Methodist University "Successful companies adapt to a changing marketplace by a willingness to constantly change themselves. McGill and Slocum show both large and small organizations what it takes to learn from and adapt to the accelerated pace of change."--Keith Hughes President and Chief Operating Officer Associates Corporation of North America Mirage Resorts, Inc. turns Las Vegas into a family vacation destination Honda parlays a motorcycle mistake into an automotive miracle From Bentonville, Arkansas, Wal-Mart manages the world's largest retail operation Southwest Airlines opens routes to the East Coast Why do some companies succeed where others fail? Why do once proud corporate giants struggle to return to profitability? If, as the pace of change in the business world accelerates, neither yesterday's achievements nor today's successes are guarantees of survival, what is? Is it culture, financing, marketing, manufacturing, or management that holds the key to business prosperity? Michael E. McGill and John W. Slocum, Jr., believe that some companies are simply smarter than others. Smart organizations don't simply change--they learn. Smarter organizations actively manage every key process to ensure continuous improvement. They create competitive environments and corporate practices that promote learning for everyone. It is the rate at which individuals learn that determines an organization's sustainable competitive advantage. Smarter organizations and smarter managers survive and thrive. In The Smarter Organization, based on years of hands-on work with some of the world's most successful corporations, McGill and Slocum will show you how to make the idea of the learning organization become a practical reality in your company. Drawing upon real-life examples from over 175 companies, this book reveals what makes for a learning organization and how you can make your company smarter. You will learn how to create a learning culture, how to craft a learning strategy, how to design structures and systems that promote learning, how to motivate a work force through learning, and how to lead a learning organization. McGill and Slocum challenge today's popular approaches to organization and management. They argue for shifting the criteria of corporate and individual success from past performance to present improvements, from what have you done to what have you learned, from changing to getting smarter. The Smarter Organization shows that sustaining corporate success depends on unlearning business as usual, relearning key success factors, and learning new perspectives and behaviors. Whatever you have known, believed, or thought to be true about success in today's business world will be challenged by The Smarter Organization. In engagements with clients ranging from owner-operated start-ups to Fortune 100 conglomerates, McGill and Slocum have tackled management problems in a style that brings cutting-edge management thinking to real-time business problems. They are insightful, iconoclastic, direct, and provocative. A complete guide to transforming any business organization into a "smarter" organization Unlearn, relearn, learn . . . three indispensable ingredients of corporate success in today's volatile global marketplace. The first book to show managers how to put into practice the principles originally introduced in The Fifth Discipline, Peter Senge's best-selling book, The Smarter Organization transforms the concept of the "learning organization" into a practical reality by showing managers how to create the conditions that ensure ongoing corporate success.
