Mergers and acquisitions require diligent planning and are extremely hard work -- you can’t get better just by getting bigger! Businesses must run effectively before they are expanded through acquisition. Using a compelling story format featuring a cast of characters, The "Grow or Die" Ultimatum: Creating Value Through Acquisition and Blended, Long-Term Improvement Formulas provides a guide through the steps that optimize your current business before finalizing a new acquisition and covers acquisition criteria, including communications, establishing a high performance culture, selecting an mergers and acquisitions broker, strategic planning, project planning, screening the potential acquisitions, the due diligence process, business integration, team building, problem solving techniques, training the trainer, theory of constraints, and the ongoing management and control of the new expanded business entity. All of the techniques introduced in this book can be used in any company and in any industry. These same tools that we use in the preparatory phase while optimizing our current business including Lean, Six Sigma and Theory of Constraints become the catalyst that will maximize business growth, cash flow, and net profits for the expanded business in the long term. They are transferrable and form an integral part of "the glue" that holds the newly acquired company and the core business together. This book focuses on a parallel approach that ensures both successful acquisitions are strategic and cultural fits, which meet all synergy goals while at the same time optimizing and growing the current business.

Readers will better understand the complexities in newly formed working relationships, as well as how to: Hire and work with consultants Interact with management to get things done Engage workers on the front line Handle those who are actively against improvements Build and sustain a culture of improvement The book covers simple, yet effective, statistics and explains how Minitab® can be used to simplify and speed up data analysis. In addition, it explains one way to use Statistical Process Control (SPC) to anticipate problems from data and what the results mean. The book includes coverage of project planning, strategy, Lean manufacturing, command and control, finance, PDCA, SPC/root cause analysis, OEE, allocating responsibilities and times to fix, Big Picture mapping, and four-point planning.

When New York–based graphic designers and long-time friends Timothy Goodman and Jessica Walsh found themselves single at the same time, they decided to try an experiment. The old adage says that it takes 40 days to change a habit—could the same be said for love? So they agreed to date each other for 40 days, record their experiences in questionnaires, photographs, videos, texts, and artworks, and post the material on a website they would create for this purpose. What began as a small experiment between two friends became an Internet sensation, drawing 5 million unique (and obsessed) visitors from around the globe to their site and their story since it was launched in July 2013. 40 Days of Dating: An Experiment is a beautifully designed, expanded look at the experiment and the results, including a great deal of material that never made it onto the site, such as who they were as friends and individuals before the 40 days and who they have become since. Note: 40 Days of Dating has a special binding that allows it to open very flat by attaching the endpapers to the inside covers.

In the last several years, much has been written about growing economic challenges, increasing income inequality, and political polarization in the United States. Addressing these new realities in America's metropolitan regions, this book argues that a few lessons are emerging: first, inequity is bad for economic growth; second, bringing together the concerns of equity and growth requires concerted local action; and third, the fundamental building block for doing this is the creation of diverse and dynamic epistemic (or knowledge) communities, which help to overcome political polarization and to address the challenges of economic restructuring and social divides.
