Guest Post: Doing More with Less: Organizational Learning and the OLSET tool

My other half recently received a free e-copy of the study guide “Doing More with Less: Organizational Learning and the OLSET tool” by Anthi Theiopoulou.

Doing More With Less; Organizational Learning and the OLSET tool

Here is the book blurb.

A sustainable learning organization always has a competitive advantage, and organizational-learning tools can provide businesses of any size with the ability to achieve more with less. This innovation in management is based in science and backed by numerous successful applications.

Author Anthi Theiopoulou, MSc, conducted breakthrough research in organizational learning (OL) best practices and the operationalization of OL principles. As a leading international expert, she offers this guide for applying OL to any business and measuring the outcome.

This overview is for leaders and researchers from a range of backgrounds. It begins by reviewing management strategies and the most current research on OL. Part two covers each component of OL in greater depth to allow leaders to design and implement their own systems. Part three is a sample OL management system, which is highly customizable, uniquely scalable, and it includes the organizational learning self-evaluation tool—or OLSET—developed by the author at the University of Liverpool. This unique element of the methodology allows leaders to conduct an OL capacity audit.

The result of years of experience and research, Doing More with Less turns science into practice. These empirically based guidelines and techniques have the power to make organizations successful in any future.

And this is what my other half had to say about Doing More with Less.

An interesting accessible book on organisational learning read in about a week.

Some really interesting and insightful material in Part III – Managing Organisational Learning, particularly Chapter 14.

Doing More with Less is on Amazon, currently priced at £16.65 in paperback and is also available in Kindle format.

Guest Post: Anyone Can Get An A+

My other half recently received a free PDF copy of the study guide “Anyone Can Get An A+” by Geetanjali Mukherjee.

Study Book 1.12

Here is the book blurb.

Do you wish you could get better grades? Do you struggle with certain subjects and believe that maybe you’re not cut out for them? Do you want to spend less time studying and still get good grades? Maybe you think that some subjects are just not for you. Maybe you don’t like to study, because you secretly believe that you just don’t have what it takes, so why bother? Maybe you are a parent, worrying about your child’s grades, worrying whether they will be able to qualify for the opportunities you want for them.

Studying for tests and exams can be stressful, not just for students, but also for teachers and parents. Grades in school exams and standardized tests can seem to determine your entire future, and yet many students are not able to get the grades they think they need to succeed.

This book draws on research from the fields of psychology and neuroscience, and gives you practical advice that you can implement right away, to overcome procrastination, make the most of your study time and improve your grades significantly.

Anyone Can Get An A+ contains 39 tips on various aspects of studying and preparing for exams. In this book, you will learn:
How best to prepare for exams
What is the top mistake most students make when doing exam preparation and how to avoid it
How to overcome procrastination and use your study time wisely
How to break down larger assignments into smaller chunks
How to use small segments of time effectively
How to get help to understand difficult material

And this is what my other half had to say about Anyone Can Get An A+. This is an easy to read book with nice use of tips. There are some very good insights:
– rewards for doing what you planned
– daily / weekly plans that have fun built in
– concentrating on your weaknesses
It is the best book I’ve read in this area. However I must add that it is aimed more at the US than the UK with jargon such as GPA – grade point average.

Anyone Can Get An A+ is on Amazon, currently priced at £8.99 in paperback. Also available for Kindle.

Geetanjali Mukherjee has a blog here, where you can find out about her other books.

Watch out for a giveaway of one of Geetanjali’s books on my blog later in the year.
