This book is a revised and extended version of the author\´s doctoral dissertation written in the framework of the International Doctoral Course on \´´Risk Management in the Built Environment\´´´´, jointly held by the University of Florence, Italy and TU Braunschweig, Germany. Modern bridges are sensitive to wind loads and aeroelastic phenomena due to the tendency to design always lighter and more flexible structures. Flutter instability is a particularly concerning issue as it can provoke the collapse of the bridge. In this work aerodynamic derivatives are considered as random variables and flutter is probabilistically approached via Monte-Carlo simulation. For this purpose a bridge deck model was experimentally studied in the CRIACIV wind tunnel. Moreover, the flutter problem is analytically investigated in order to enhance existing codes and standards. In particular, an approximate formula retaining only three aerodynamic coefficients is derived and validated by means of a large number of experimental data. This book is addressed to scientists and researchers dealing with wind engineering, bluff-body aerodynamics and bridge aeroelasticity, as well as to professional bridge engineers.´´
The Data Vault was invented by Dan Linstedt at the U.S. Department of Defense, and the standard has been successfully applied to data warehousing projects at organizations of different sizes, from small to large-size corporations. Due to its simplified design, which is adapted from nature, the Data Vault 2.0 standard helps prevent typical data warehousing failures. ´´ Building a Scalable Data Warehouse ´´ covers everything one needs to know to create a scalable data warehouse end to end, including a presentation of the Data Vault modeling technique, which provides the foundations to create a technical data warehouse layer. The book discusses how to build the data warehouse incrementally using the agile Data Vault 2.0 methodology. In addition, readers will learn how to create the input layer (the stage layer) and the presentation layer (data mart) of the Data Vault 2.0 architecture including implementation best practices. Drawing upon years of practical experience and using numerous examples and an easy to understand framework, Dan Linstedt and Michael Olschimke discuss: How to load each layer using SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS), including automation of the Data Vault loading processes. Important data warehouse technologies and practices. Data Quality Services (DQS) and Master Data Services (MDS) in the context of the Data Vault architecture. Provides a complete introduction to data warehousing, applications, and the business context so readers can get-up and running fast Explains theoretical concepts and provides hands-on instruction on how to build and implement a data warehouse Demystifies data vault modeling with beginning, intermediate, and advanced techniques Discusses the advantages of the data vault approach over other techniques, also including the latest updates to Data Vault 2.0 and multiple improvements to Data Vault 1.0
Are you a salesperson or entrepreneur? Would you like to provide solutions your customers can´t resist? Douglas Vigliotti uses a unique but simple sales philosophy backed by 12 years of selling experience, and easy-to-understand examples to show you how to provide solutions your customers actually want. Yes, solutions your customers want to buy from you. He begs you to answer the pivotal question.... Am I providing CRINGE solutions? Solutions customers will either buy, or ´´cringe´´ to say no to. Solutions that imprint you in the customers mind even in the absence of an initial sale. CRINGE solutions are not just products or services.... They solve real problems. They provide loads of tangible and intangible value. They reduce social, emotional, and financial risk for the customer. They´re overwhelming easy to understand, use, and implement. They acquire more customers, retain more customers, and tell better stories. The Salesperson Paradox will show you exactly how to create, position, and provide these solutions. It´s a solution selling playbook packed with instantly implementable sales tools, guides, and frameworks. It´s sales coaching aided by sales training. It´s sales strategy backed by sales tactics. It´s a lesson in sales psychology, ethical influence, and ultimately it will challenge you to ask yourself: Am I selling? Or, am I helping? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Douglas Vigliotti.

A huge amount of change initiatives fail. Based on a combination of 4 years rigorous research and practical application of the emerging findings, the book explores the dilemmas related to the growing need for change and the difficulty in making change work. With empirical research of leaders in some of the most successful global organisations including PwC, Starbucks and Shell, this book will enable organisations to make substantial performance improvements in change leadership. This is a book destined for leaders who wish to implement change more intelligently and effortlessly. Drawing on a combination of rigorous research and extensive organisational experience, the authors present a framework for leading change, ´Changing Leadership´, that describes the specific leader practices they have found make the biggest differences between success and failure in implementing high magnitude change. Indeed these four practices, when used in combination, determined 50% of the reason why the changes they studied either succeeded or failed. In this respect, organisational change efforts that ignore the leadership dimension risk reducing their chances of successful implementation by a half. In essence, the practices richly illustrated in this book require the leader to give up their notion of control over complex and large organisational systems, and instead work to create the conditions within which the organisation will more naturally do its´ own changing´. This requires the leader to adopt a less ego-centric ´shaping´ aproach to change and in this place adopt an approach that creates a magnetic pull in the towards its purpose, disturbs the currently unhelpful repeating patterns in its culture, and doing so in a way that enables people to process their natural anxiety about change. In doing all of this, the leader works to make change happen in the day to day activity and conversations of the organisation. This is not therefore a book about how to launch and roll out massive change ´programmes´. However, the leadership practices described are equally applicable to very significant and extensive organisational changes - perhaps even more so given the costs of failure and prizes of success in such cases. Overall this is a book that will take the reader on a journey to confront their current approach to leading change, examine the personal beliefs and assumptions that may underpin this, and provide practical advice on how to become more effective. ´Whether you are a CEO, an HR Director or a Change practitioner, this is the most valuable book you will read this year. Based on ground-breaking research and brought to life with numerous case studies, this is that rare entity: a business book which is accessible, insightful and thorough.´ - Mick Holbrook ´A leadership guide both practical and research validated that explains what to do to achieve sustained change and at last a clear insight into why so many change attempts get stuck and fail.´ - Lynn L. Elsenhans ´The who, what, why and how of change leadership...a marvellous manifesto for practitioners and consultants alike, derived from extensive workplace experience and deep consideration of key aspects. It´s the definitive manual on successful change leadership in today´s world - how to bring it about and how to make it stick.´ - Adrian Loader
