Stories of government management failures often make the headlines, but quietly much gets done as well. What makes the difference? Ira Goldstein offers wisdom about how to lead and succeed in the federal realm, even during periods when the political climate is intensely negative, based on his decades of experience as a senior executive at two major government consulting firms and as a member of the US federal government's Senior Executive Service. The Federal Management Playbook coaches the importance of always keeping four key concepts in mind when planning for success: goals, stakeholders, resources, and time frames. Its chapters address how to effectively motivate government employees, pick the right technologies, communicate and negotiate with powerful stakeholders, manage risks, get value from contractors, foster innovation, and more. Goldstein makes lessons easy to apply by breaking each chapter's plans into three strategic phases: create an offensive strategy, execute your plan effectively, and play a smart defense. Additional tips describe how career civil servants and political appointees can get the most from one another, advise consultants on providing value to government, and help everyone better manage ever-present oversight. The Federal Management Playbook is a must-listen for anyone working in the government realm and for students who aspire to public service. The book is published by Georgetown University Press. 1.

As suddenly as Death, the bitter cold came, and with it, the armored tanks, sleek submarines, and mailed warriors of the invading legions! An international syndicate, fearing America's greatness and strength in war, had unleashed savage war-dogs to win the conflict before it fairly began. The greatest military genius of modern times commanded the enemy, and Operator #5 of the United States Secret Service - known to his dearest friends as Jimmy Christopher - was America's choice to oppose him. But with the Intelligence slaughtered, with Diane in the camp of the enemy, the federal government in hiding, Operator #5 faced the stiffest battle of his career, and the Gods tossed dice to determine the victory! Into this unprecedented crisis plunged Jimmy Christopher. Only one man, but a man who embodied the American spirit - and stands prepared to perish to protect his country. Attack of the Blizzard Men is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the October, 1935 issue of Operator #5 magazine. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Milton Bagby.

American Legends: The Life of J. P. Morgan , Hö...

Dozens of men were called "robber barons", but few were as notorious or rich as John Pierpont Morgan, a financier and banker who bankrolled the consolidation of behemoth corporations across various industries. Morgan was behind the merging of Edison General Electric and Thomson-Houston Electric Company, which subsequently became General Electric, still known simply as GE across the world today. Similarly, he financed Federal Steel Company and consolidated various other steel businesses to help form the United States Steel Corporation. While critics complained about the outsized influence that these gigantic businesses had, Morgan's massive wealth also gave him unprecedented power in the financial sector and the ability to deal with politicians. In fact, Morgan played an important part in the Panic of 1907 and the subsequent decision to create the Federal Reserve as a monetary oversight. The industrial might wielded by men like Morgan directly led to a public backlash and made President Teddy Roosevelt the "trust buster", and there has since been countless regulations to attempt to avoid the types of monopolies found over 100 years ago. However, many 20th century historians and writers pushed back against the allegations hurled at the "robber barons" and even took issue with the name. Morgan may have used his wealth to collect everything from jewelry to yachts, but he was also celebrated for spending enormous sums of money on charitable works and public service projects. As a result, Morgan's reputation is still mixed, even as his legacy is felt over 100 years after his death. American Legends: The Life of J.P. Morgan looks at the life and career of one of America's most famous industrialists. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Austin Downey.

U.S. Marshals: Inside America's Most Storied La...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Blending history and memoir, retired U.S. Marshal Mike Earp - a descendant of the legendary lawman Wyatt Earp - offers an exclusive and fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the most storied law enforcement agency in America, illuminating its vital role in the nation's development for more than two hundred years. Mike Earp spent his career with the U.S. Marshals Service, reaching the number three position in the organization's hierarchy before he retired. In this fascinating, eye-opening audiobook, written with the service's full cooperation, he shares his experiences and takes us on a fascinating tour of this extraordinary organization - the oldest, the most effective, and the most dangerous branch of American law enforcement, and the least known. Unlike their counterparts in the police and the FBI, U.S. Marshals aren't responsible for investigating or prosecuting crimes. They pursue and arrest the most dangerous criminal offenders on U.S. soil, an extraordinarily hazardous job often involving gun battles and physical altercations. Earp takes us back to the service's early days, explaining its creation and its role in the border wars that helped make continental expansion possible. He brings to life the gunslingers and gunfights that have made the Marshals legend, and explores the service's role today integrating federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies in the hunt for the most notorious criminals - terrorists, drug lords, gun runners. Setting his own experiences within the long history of the U.S. Marshals service, Earp offers a moving and illuminating tribute to the brave marshals who have dedicated their lives to keeping the nation safe. 1.

Truth: The Press, the President, and the Privil...

Previously published as Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. A riveting play-by-play of a reporter getting and defending a story that recalls All the President's Men, Truth puts listeners in the center of the 60 Minutes II story on George W. Bush's shirking of his National Guard duty. The firestorm that followed that broadcast - a conflagration that was carefully sparked by the right and fanned by bloggers - trashed Mapes' well-respected 25-year producing career, caused newsman Dan Rather to resign from his anchor chair early, and led to an unprecedented "internal inquiry" into the story...chaired by former Reagan attorney general Richard Thornburgh. Truth examines Bush's political roots as governor of Texas, delves into what is known about his National Guard duty - or lack of service - and sheds light on the solidity of the documents that backed up the National Guard story, even including images of the actual documents in an appendix to the book. It is peopled with a colorful cast of characters - from Karl Rove to Sumner Redstone - and moves from small-town Texas to Black Rock - CBS corporate headquarters - in New York City. Truth connects the dots between a corporation under fire from the federal government and the decision about what kinds of stories a news network may cover. It draws a line from reporting in the trenches to the gutting of the great American tradition of an independent media and asks whether it's possible to break important stories on a powerful sitting president. 1.
