What does it take to find oil in an area where many have tried, but failed? What does it take to design buildings that become prize-winning cultural landmarks? And what can the best architects, oil explorers, business lawyers, journalists, and business developers within banking and trading analysis have in common? Idea Work can provide the answers. This book builds on a four-year research project and describes what extraordinary idea work looks like in practice. The authors take you behind the scenes of some of Norways leading companies and show how surprisingly similarly they work when they are working creatively to develop and realise new ideas. The book gives us, for example, a glimpse of how Snøhetta designed the Opera and the 9/11 memorial, and how explorers at Statoil discovered the most oil of all oil companies in the world in 2011. Narratives are presented on how prepping, sketches, pin-ups, drama, wonder, and punk are important aspects of the extraordinary. Examples are supported by theory, placing this book at the forefront of international research. Idea Work will appeal to practitioners as well as students. It recounts engaging stories from actual production processes and combines new theoretical perspectives with practical advice. It will also be of interest to anyone working with development, particularly with developing new ideas. From a professional standpoint, this book is an uncommon contribution to describing and understanding creativity as something collective and grounded in everyday activity.

Design School is a richly illustrated, unprecedented anthology of over 50 of the most challenging class projects from design schools around the world. The projects range from basic typography to social responsibility. From printed matter to environmental extravaganzas, students are challenged to push the limits of form and content. How do students learn to solve design problems? How do cultural differences impact the way design is taught? What do design students want from their class assignments? What do design teachers hope to impart? The answers can be found in this impressive compendium of choice projects from the likes of the University of Art and Design, Helsinki, Finland; Fabrica, Bologna Academy of Fine Arts, Italy; Arts Academy of Split, Croatia; School of Visual Arts, New York, United States; Berlin University of the Arts, Germany, and many more. Design School is an essential resource for teachers seeking uniquely successful projects.
The irony , as time has passed , is that academic research has become just as
goal - driven as industrial research , and ... vanished for most of today ' s young
scientists , who must choose research projects that the government considers to

Dr. Fred J. Stephenson recognized the growing dissatisfaction with America's schools and decided he had a remedy. So he asked master teachers-all of whom had won the University of Georgia's Josiah Meigs Award for Excellence in Teaching-to share their thoughts on the profession of education. The result is Extraordinary Teachers.Within these pages, exceptional teachers write about everything from helping students find joy in learning to using humor in the classroom. Anyone with an interest in education will find this book an inspiring, must-read look at excellence in teaching.

An in-depth look at how leaders in Asia apply the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership in their organizations Kouzes and Posner's Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership is the most trusted and proven leadership paradigm in the business world. Making Extraordinary Things Happen in Asia focuses on the unique ways leaders in Asia have applied the Five Practices and documents their success with it. Using actual case studies and first-person experiences, the book examines the Five Practices framework, shows how the behaviors of individual leaders make a difference, and reveals what leadership in Asia looks like on a daily basis. Each of the Five Practices is supported with five or six case studies illustrating what the Practice looks like on a behavioral level. After examining the Five Practices, the book then reveals what actions would-be and current leaders in Asia can do to improve their leadership skills and effectiveness.

This book seeks to explore how scientists across a number of countries managed to cope with the challenging circumstances created by World War II. No scientist remained unaffected by the outbreak of WWII. As the book shows, there were basically two opposite ways in which the war encroached on the life of a scientific researcher. In some cases, the outbreak of the war led to engagement in research in support of a war-waging country; in the other extreme, it resulted in their marginalisation. The book, starting with the most marginalised scientist and ending with those fully engaged in the war-effort, covers the whole spectrum of enormously varying scientific fates. Distinctive features of the volume include: a focus on the experiences of ‘ordinary’ scientists, rather than on figureheads like Oppenheimer or Otto Hahn contributions from a range of renowned academics including Mark Walker, an authority in the field of science in World War II a detailed study of the Netherlands during the German Occupation This richly illustrated volume will be of major interest to researchers of the history of science, World War II, and Modern History.
