Success and failure of IS/IT projects : a state of the

This book examines the link between change and project
management and how creating a closer alignment between
these two methodologies can yield greater benefits and
mitigate elements of failure of information systems (IS)
projects. This study explores the underlying challenges
and practicalities of closer integration of the two
disciplines and asserts that such a successful change
goes beyond the simple training of project managers in
the practitioner context. This book offers a guide that
identifies the barriers and major challenges that may
arise in the development of the closer integration of
change and project management.

The capabilities offered by netcentric technologies might
seem to eliminate the need for physical workplace
altogether, but the workplace remains, partly because the
virtual, and in fact, the physical appearance of a
typical office looks about the same. Nevertheless, the
psychological characteristics of the workplace have
changed considerably. Workers, from the mail room clerk
to the CEO, are learning new skills - to capitalize on
the net-s power, but avoid the egregious blunders that
the net so dramatically amplifies. In this book, the
author shows how netcentric technologies touch every kind
of workplace, and explores the challenges and dilemmas

Despite new technologies, people do not always find
information readily. This book is about the role of
information services and digital literacies in the age of
the social web. Do people still need help in finding the
information they need, and if so, why? What can new tools
and techniques make easier? Who needs help, and with
what? The author provides an alternative perspective for
understanding the context of information services and
digital literacy and argues that a central problem in the
age of the social web and the culture of participation is
that we do not know the premises of how we know, and how
ways of interacting with information affect our actions
and their outcomes. Information seeking and finding is
always a question of crossing and expanding boundaries,
between our earlier experiences and the unknown.

In this book the author examines the ethical -blind
spots- that lay at the hearth of the global financial
crisis. He argues that the most important moral problem
in finance is not the -greed is good- culture, but rather
the epistemic shortcomings of bankers, clients, rating
agencies and regulators. Drawing on insights from
economics, psychology and philosophy, the author develops
a novel theory of epistemic virtue and applies it to
racist and sexist lending practices, subprime mortgages,
CEO hubris, the Madoff scandal, professionalism, in
accountancy and regulatory outsourcing of epistemic
responsibility. With its multidisciplinary reach, this
book will appeal to scholars working in philosophy,
business ethics, economics, psychology and the sociology

This book is based on the learnings about life and
existence derived from ancient Indian philosophy.
Spiritualism is defined in the East as the science of
higher consciousness and explains Oneness and the
harmonious coexistence of Man with the Universe. These
pages are about understanding the divine within us, how
to live spiritually, moment to moment, and enjoy every
aspect of life without assistance from any external
source. This is where this simple book speaks to us in a
straightforward, down-to-earth manner, revealing there
are no diktats we need to follow- only the voice within.
We notice the change as through constant vigil, the sub-
conscious takes over and we evolve by ourselves - alone,

In this book the author deals with this core reality and
the struggle imbedded in living lives of duality in the
material and technological world. Happiness unhappiness,
goo-bad, God-Devil - all exist as -One-. Despite the
teachings of spiritual gurus and masters, life fails to
give us the much-needed solace. The author delves into a
deeper existence where, through experiential realization,
we are able to go beyond the mind with its dual thoughts,
to a state of higher consciousness.

This book explores contemporary manifestations of
discrimination that persist in our society through
institutions, and through norms and practices that define
the terms of continued exclusion of certain social
groups. Institutional rules and social interactions make
some people more vulnerable to domination and
exploitation, and they raise fundamental questions of
justice today. The book argues against tendencies to
assume an unquestioned similarity of discriminations that
fail to address the structural level at which
inequalities are promoted.

field, the book features expanded coverage of public debt
and the management of capital inflows as well as new
material on fiscal discipline monetary policy regimes,
currency, banking and sovereign debt crises, currency
unions, and the choice of an exchange-rate regime. A new
chapter on dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models
with financial frictions has been added to reflect how
the financial crisis has reshaped our thinking on the
role of such frictions in generating and propagating real
and financial shocks. The book also discusses the role of
macro prudential regulation, both independently and
through its interactions with monetary policy, in
preserving financial and macroeconomic stability.

Proving the maxim that crime follows opportunity,
virtually every advance has been accompanied by a
corresponding niche to be exploited for criminal
purposes: so-called -cybercrimes-. Whether it is fraud,
child pornography, stalking, criminal copyright
infringement or attacks on computers themselves,
criminals will find ways to exploit new technology. The
challenge for all countries is to ensure their criminal
laws keep pace. The challenge is a global one, and much
can be learned from the experience of other jurisdictions
Focusing on Australia, Canada, the UK and USA, this book
provides a comprehensive analysis of the legal principles
that apply to the prosecution of cybercrimes.
