The Peter Principle

This is now a standard part of managerial thinking and there is no escape from promotion, whether in the City, government, the Civil Service, academia, the media. Wherever hierarchies exist leads only to failure and an eventual shunting into corporate oblivion.This satirical classic explains why the human race is lost in a pit of economic, administrative and academic inefficiency. Most of us, whether the work experience placement or the Oxbridge fast-track career prospect, are doomed to ultimately end what seemed to be a glittering, dynamic career in humiliating mediocrity (obviously anyone reading this, and my boss, are exempt). However, a deviously cunning strategy (requiring both diligence and a talent for lies) can avert the unwanted promotion and preserve your dignity.Laurence J. Peter spent most of his working life teaching in universities where he made a lifelong study of teacher incompetence. Raymond Hull is a playwright and poet, whose articles have appeared in 'Esquire' and 'Punch' among others.

Neither Civil nor Servant: The Philip Yeo Story...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Philip Yeo is unlike any civil servant. He prefers action over talk, cartoons over words, and speed over due process. The maverick was blunt, direct, and unafraid to challenge the status quo, earning him a reputation not only as one of Singapore’s most accomplished government officials, but also among its most colorful bureaucrats.  Neither Civil nor Servant captures the half-a-century career of the former Economic Development Board chairman, telling the stories of brilliant achievements almost unparalleled in the history of the Singapore civil service. Yeo was the man who turned Batam into a household name in Singapore, created Jurong Island from seawater, and put the country on the biomedical map globally with its iconic Biopolis. The famous rule breaker bulldozed his way through the bureaucracy he was a part of, blazing new paths in a manner more akin to an entrepreneur than a civil servant. In the process, he offended more than a few and was never afraid to challenge naysayers publicly, regardless of status and background.  In the hands of acclaimed journalist and author Peh Shing Huei, this authorized biography brings out the private man behind Philip Yeo's public figure and uncovers the behind-the-scenes stories of some of Singapore’s biggest post-independence military, economic, and political adventures. Neither Civil nor Servant is an engaging and enthralling audiobook, offering fascinating insights into one of Singapore's most unconventional pioneer civil servants.  1.

The spy novel that anticipated the Snowden revelations. Carina Dymek is on a fast track for promotion at the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, when she is approached by a stranger and given a USB stick containing a report to circulate in her department. Unwittingly, she delivers a time bomb of classified information that sends her career up in flames and puts her on the radar of the security service, Säpo. Tasked with investigating how Dymek gained access to the confidential report, the formidable Bente Jensen of Säpo is quietly approached by the British MI6, who have an undisclosed interest in the leak. She finds out that Dymek's boyfriend is an Egyptian Swedish national. But it's MI6 who link his family to an extreme faction within the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo. The case explodes into an international manhunt. Liaising with the ruthless MI6, Bente uncovers the secretive plans contained in that leaked report: plans for an omnipotent Europe-wide Intelligence Service. Forces hone in on Dymek, while Bente begins to suspect she is a red herring caught in a far wider net: one in which social media is abused for intelligence and civil rights are sacrificed to national security. 1.

McClellan is to me one of the mysteries of the war. (Ulysses S. Grant) Over the last 150 years, historians and Americans have endlessly debated over the Civil War, including its causes and the best and worst generals. Nowhere has there been a sharper debate than over the career and legacy of George McClellan, with a majority viewing him as the North's biggest goat and a small but vocal minority insisting that McClellan was a very good general who was made a scapegoat by the Lincoln Administration and its supporters. Many members of the "McClellan Society" continue to assert that McClellan would have ended the war in 1862 without the Administration's interference. In 1861, McClellan was looked upon as a hero and even possibly a savior. Dubbed "The Young Napoleon", the 35 year old had been a prodigy at West Point, finishing in second place in the Academy's most famous class, the Class of 1846. After earning praise for his service in the Mexican-American War, McClellan had a short but successful career in the railroad industry and had been a foreign observer at the siege of Sevastopol during the Crimean War. At the outbreak of the Civil War, there was no question that McClellan was one of the brightest and most experienced of the North's generals. Ultimately, of course, McClellan went from hero to goat, at least in the eyes of President Lincoln, who famously wrote that McClellan "has the slows". It was a sharp critique of McClellan's cautious movements, but McClellan was also faulted for conservative battlefield leadership in the Peninsula Campaign and at Antietam. McClellan also constantly overestimated his opponent's manpower, at times thinking the Confederates had double his Army of the Potomac when the exact opposite was the case. It was after Antietam and his bickering with the War Department over why he wasn't chasing Lee's battered Army of Northern Virginia that Lincoln finally sacked him, effectively ending his Civil War caree 1.
