Radio frequency identification or RFID is a broad-based technology that impacts business and society. With the rapid expansion of the use of this technology in everything from consumer purchases to security ID tags, to tracking bird migration, there is very little information available in book form that targets the widest range of the potential market. But this book is different! Where most of the books available cover specific technical underpinnings of RFID or specific segments of the market, this co-authored book by both academic and industry professionals, provides a broad background on the technology and the various applications of RFID around the world. Coverage is mainly non-technical, more business related for the broadest user base, however there are sections that step into the technical aspects for advanced, more technical readers.

Some organizations are able to survive and thrive through times of uncertainty while others stumble and fall at the first sign of trouble. What differentiates resilient organizations from those that are not? Do we need to wait until a crisis strikes to see how resilient an organization is, or can we diagnose resilience in advance of a crisis? Resilient Organizations draws on primary research to reveal the answers to these questions and provide practical ideas and actions to make your own organization more resilient. Organizational resilience is not just about minimizing and managing risk exposure; it is about creating organizations with the agility to adapt to unexpected challenges and the capacity to seize opportunity out of adversity. Dr Erica Seville, founder of the Resilient Organizations research programme, provides readers with the essential knowledge required to enable organizations to thrive in a world of change and uncertainty, where resilience is an increasingly important strategic capacity. Drawing on a decade of research, her team have identified 13 indicators to diagnose an organization's resilience. Resilient Organizations draws out the top five ingredients and shows how organization resilience is a capability that can and must be proactively fostered and maintained over time. Using case studies, diagnostic tools and key actions and initiatives to develop and maintain organizational resilience, Resilient Organizations is essential reading for everyone tasked with developing strong organizations that can survive and thrive in crisis and change - from risk, resilience and business continuity professionals to leadership and management teams.

Leadership in Dangerous Situations provides in-depth coverage of the key psychological, social and organization factors that impact individual and organizational effectiveness for First Responders in dangerous environments. Leading scholars discuss how current theories and empirical research provides guidelines to help solve the challenges leaders are likely to face in dangerous contexts. This book is directed to First Responders leaders from the Military, Law Enforcement, Fire, Emergency Services and Not-for profit agencies working in dangerous areas. The purpose of this book is to assist the First Responders who risk their lives to serve the public, to prepare for the unique challenges of leading and operating in dangerous situations. Dangerous situations are environments where group members must routinely engage in events that place their physical and psychological well-being at risk to accomplish the organization’s objectives. International scholars and practitioners from the military, law enforcement, fire and rescue, teamed together to address the unique challenges facing dangerous context leaders. Each chapter integrates theory and research with practical experience to address the various challenges these leaders will face while operating in dangerous situations. The intent is to provide practitioners an easily understandable guide, backed by scholarly findings, to prepare themselves and their organizations for the unique psychological, social, and physical challenges of leading and operating in dangerous contexts. The blending of theory and empirical research with practical experience clearly illustrates the principles of effective leadership in dangerous contexts Whether one is a young leader preparing for war, a seasoned commander with multiple combat tours, a Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team leader, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) supervisor, first line supervisor of a law enforcement patrol unit, or a lieutenant responsible for a shift of firemen, the challenges of leading people in contexts where life and death decisions are common are very similar. The purpose here is to provide the leader with a better understanding of what is required to lead in dangerous contexts. The contributing authors delve into the psychological, social, and physical factors that can impact the ability to lead, the ability of personnel to perform, and the organization’s ability to accomplish the mission. In the end, the leader will take away not only a understanding of how leading in dangerous contexts is different than leading in contexts where lives are not on the line, but also gain a deeper understanding of why it differs, where commonalities occur, and – perhaps more importantly – how to prepare leaders, whether military or civilian to guide their first responder organizations to perform successfully in dangerous situations.

This book aims to uncover the root causes of natural and man-made disasters by going beyond the typical reports and case studies conducted post-disaster. It opens the black box of disasters by presenting ‘forensic analysis approaches’ to disasters, thereby revealing the complex causality that characterizes them and explaining how and why hazards do, or do not, become disasters. This yields ‘systemic’ strategies for managing disasters. Recently the global threat landscape has seen the emergence of high impact, low probability events. Events like Hurricane Katrina, the Great Japan Earthquake and tsunami, Hurricane Sandy, Super Typhoon Haiyan, global terrorist activities have become the new norm. Extreme events challenge our understanding regarding the interdependencies and complexity of the disaster aetiology and are often referred to as Black Swans. Between 2002 and 2011, there were 4130 disasters recorded that resulted from natural hazards around the world. In these, 1,117,527 people perished and a minimum of US$1,195 billion in losses were reported. In the year 2011 alone, 302 disasters claimed 29,782 lives; affected 206 million people and inflicted damages worth a minimum of estimated US$366 billion.
