They say that "necessity is the mother of invention". But today, I would add that "to maintain all of our necessities, the world sorely needs and requires the greatest invention of all time - an autonomous government". The world is currently being introduced to autonomous cars and trucks. Many millions of miles have been logged by driverless cars and trucks. Tesla has already started to drive huge semi-trailer trucks across the country without a driver. The technology for driverless cars and trucks can be easily adopted to create a leaderless or autonomous government. Autonomous cars will reduce the crashes on the roadways, while an autonomous government will reduce the crash of our civilization and our planet and our species.Today, the people of this country and this planet are forced to endure a system of making the laws that we must all obey by a bunch of old white men in expensive business suits. Even this group is tyrannized by one or two individuals who control these few to consider only solutions to problems that have been predetermined and pre-cleared by special interest groups. Half of them end up in jail, and yet this is how we create the rules of law. But there is hope - we are now building the world's first artificial intelligence, a huge computer brain that can outthink all of these men in suits plus billions more of us on the outside. Solutions to problems can be delivered in seconds - not decades - and they will be fair and just because they will be derived from complete and total logic. Computers also cannot take bribes in their deliberation process. This is a new type of freedom. We're all familiar with freedom of the press, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to bear arms. We now need the Constitution to deliver a new freedom - the freedom from aimlessness. The autonomous government will bring us the common goals of preserving our planet Earth plus the survival of our species as well as all other 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Mathiesen.

It is widely recognized that it will be difficult to make meaningful progress towards making Nakuru City a habitable environment without documenting the current ecological status of Nakuru, environmental challenges, spirited efforts to make Nakuru a good place to live and do business. Even if MCN, NEMA, research institutions and other relevant lead agencies, play a pivotal role and perhaps bear the greatest responsibility for finding solutions, they cannot alone solve the environmental problems and challenges of the current situation in Nakuru Municipality alone. The involvement of wide range of stakeholders on environmental management in Nakuru is the only prerequisite for sustainable growth and development in Nakuru Town. Every person within the jurisdiction of the Council is entitled to clean and healthy environment and has the duty to safeguard and enhance the environment. The Nakuru Environment document issues in Nakuru that pose a challenging in sustainable development and growth of Nakuru city. It is my assumption that the users of TNE will appreciate the Nakuru Environment and take up the challenges therein to make Nakuru a city we want.
Bachelor Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,1, University of applied sciences, Düsseldorf, language: English, abstract: A CEO is presenting the annual report in front of 20,000 employees when suddenly the projector breaks down. A key account manager cannot pay the restaurant bill for his top client as he has lost his wallet. A newly elected mayor misses his first public speech as he is being held up in a traffic jam. All these examples taken from daily business and their negative effects, such as the loss of time, a damaged reputation and higher costs, could have been avoided with an appropriate planning beforehand.Projects are even more critical as they are by definition unique. [...] Although this idea seems to be consistent and companies should therefore strive to complete their projects successfully, only 32 % of all projects succeed in terms of com-pliance with time, budget and specifications. 44 % are completed late, exceeding budget, showing a deficit in features or with a combination thereof. The remaining 24 % of all projects fail, i.e., they are cancelled before completion or are finished but never used. Going back to the year 2000, this failure rate has never been higher.A reason for this may be that the unique nature of projects also implies uncertainties. [...] the more aspects of a project are unique, the higher are the entailed uncertainties and the higher is the risk to fail.And projects are becoming more and more demanding with an increasing pressure on companies in terms of time, budget and quality. As globalisation is rising, the need for fast and comprehensive adjustments of processes, systems and products is increasing simultaneously. [...]To be able to bear the growing competitive pressure, companies need fast, innovative and interdisciplinary solutions, which they achieve best by applying projects. But projects lacking clear targets, specifications, communication channels, schedules and budgets are likely to fail. Hence, an appropriate project planning is vital to avoid or at least minimise all uncertainties and risks that could lead to a full or partial failure of the project.But project planning itself does not guarantee success. It must be executed in a way that is comprehensive and efficient at the same time. [...] Finding out which planning processes are required and to which detail is crucial for performing a completely successful project.
Document from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, , course: Interkulturelles Management, language: English, abstract: This is the most important question man is faced with, because his self-perception guides his values and behaviours. The solution of the question will impact himself and as a consequence the environment. Therefore it is the most important individual and social question, whether it is avoided or solved in one cultural way or the other. Therefore it is also not surprising that all civilisations and cultures on the on hand tend to agree on the prime importance of the question and as a consequence try to find culturally conditioned solutions to the question on the other hand. According to the prevailing paradigm, philosophical, spiritual and, nowadays, supposedly more scientific ones, based on natural science and the humanities alike, are offered. Social science offers cultural values models and the dynamics of group affiliation throughout socialization to answer the question on the assumption that man's self-perception is a cultural construct. Here man's identity is a matter of sociocultural conditioning in addition to unique individual and universal endowments which, nonetheless, are additional conditioners. So, the term conditioning prevails. Science concludes to science-specific determinisms which are also conditioned perception, and philosophical and spiritual answers as to man's identity bear the conditioning hue of the ideology that acts as a filter of perception. Is there only relativity in the identity construction of man or is there anything that transcends ism-relative identity construction that explains man's real identity and that can therefore appease man himself and his relations with other identity assumptions that tend to clash in the social arena, as they entail identity-specific values and behavioural patterns? This is a seemingly impossible question because man's mind that tries to answer the question seems to be a time-relative construct itself which can therefore, similarly, offer only relative answers that are not time enduring, because that mind changes with its conditioning in time and therefore tends to provide relative answers. So, how can the quest for human identity be managed in a satisfactory way, a way that is not conducive to identity clashes based on identity mismanagement
Actionable guidance and expert perspective for real-world cybersecurity The Cyber Risk Handbook is the practitioner's guide to implementing, measuring and improving the counter-cyber capabilities of the modern enterprise. The first resource of its kind, this book provides authoritative guidance for real-world situations, and cross-functional solutions for enterprise-wide improvement. Beginning with an overview of counter-cyber evolution, the discussion quickly turns practical with design and implementation guidance for the range of capabilities expected of a robust cyber risk management system that is integrated with the enterprise risk management (ERM) system. Expert contributors from around the globe weigh in on specialized topics with tools and techniques to help any type or size of organization create a robust system tailored to its needs. Chapter summaries of required capabilities are aggregated to provide a new cyber risk maturity model used to benchmark capabilities and to road-map gap-improvement. Cyber risk is a fast-growing enterprise risk, not just an IT risk. Yet seldom is guidance provided as to what this means. This book is the first to tackle in detail those enterprise-wide capabilities expected by Board, CEO and Internal Audit, of the diverse executive management functions that need to team up with the Information Security function in order to provide integrated solutions. * Learn how cyber risk management can be integrated to better protect your enterprise * Design and benchmark new and improved practical counter-cyber capabilities * Examine planning and implementation approaches, models, methods, and more * Adopt a new cyber risk maturity model tailored to your enterprise needs The need to manage cyber risk across the enterprise--inclusive of the IT operations--is a growing concern as massive data breaches make the news on an alarmingly frequent basis. With a cyber risk management system now a business-necessary requirement, practitioners need to assess the effectiveness of their current system, and measure its gap-improvement over time in response to a dynamic and fast-moving threat landscape. The Cyber Risk Handbook brings the world's best thinking to bear on aligning that system to the enterprise and vice-a-versa. Every functional head of any organization must have a copy at-hand to understand their role in achieving that alignment.
'With knowledge [as] the only source of sustainable advantage, bringing knowledge effectively to bear on customer problems is Secret No. 1 to success. Bob Buckman's story of turning a traditional company into something completely new and different is both practical and inspiring. Building a Knowledge-Driven Organization should become an instant classic.' --Tom Peters 'Buckman Labs may have been the first company to realize that speed of knowledge sharing was a driver of cash flow and competitive advantage. Buckman pioneered collaboration around the globe to solve customer problems and create new business. This book is a powerful record of Bob Buckman's two decades of leadership and experience creating the deep cultural and human context for knowledge--and cash--to flow. If you want to know what works--and what doesn't--read this book.' --Carla O'Dell, Ph.D., President, American Productivity & Quality Center, and author of If Only We Knew What We Know: the internal transfer of knowledge and best practices. 'A must-read for executives trying to drive a knowledge management program, or for that matter any technology-based initiative.' --Dave Snowden, Director of IBM's Cynefin Centre for Organisational Complexity 'Bob Buckman--arguably the first CEO to personally lead a knowledge-based corporate strategy--combines a bold vision with practical tips for how organizations can become team-based and knowledge- and solutions- driven.' --Brook Manville, Chief Learning Officer, Saba Software; Former Partner and Director of Knowledge Management, McKinsey 'Buckman Labs' technical experts and far-flung sales force conduct dozens of virtual conversations each day, trading tips on arcane points of paper and leather making, water purification and sewage treatment. In the process, they've made this closely held, Memphis Tennessee chemical company with $360 million in sales, a leading practitioner in the emerging field of knowledge management.'-- The Wall Street Journal 'Buckman Labs has become a Mecca for other companies looking for 'how-to' lessons in the art and science of knowledge management. Executives from many Fortune 500 companies have made the pilgrimage to look and learn from a company that is fast, global, and interactive, and built on a system that is simple, powerful, and revolutionary.'-- Fast Company In the early 1980's, when Buckman Laboratories was scrambling to meet the rapidly changing needs of its customers, CEO Robert Buckman realized that an organization positioned for the future would have to be organized around knowledge--creating it, sharing it, and applying it--rather than around traditional corporate hierarchies and systems. He embraced this belief, and created a knowledge-sharing culture among Buckman Labs' 1400 associates serving in 80 countries. Buckman Labs became the undisputed pioneer and leader in implementing knowledge management. Building a Knowledge-Driven Organization is a practical primer on how your managers and employees can move from 'hoarding' knowledge in order to gain power to 'sharing' it--building a global strategy that will allow your organization to respond faster than your competition to any customer's need, anywhere. The book focuses on the hardest part of knowledge management--the p eople side--explaining exactly what it takes to get your employees to contribute to a knowledge system. Buckman explains how to turn a fragmented, geographically dispersed group of people and information into a seamless array of knowledge that can be directed whenever and wherever it is needed. He reveals that the greatest challenges are not technical but political--and explains how you can effectively orchestrate a culture change in your organization, drawing from the hard-won lessons learned by Buckman Laboratories in implementing its award-winning knowledge systems. You'll discover, as Buckman did, h
