This book introduces an innovative new digital approach to speed up cultural change in organisations and reduce failure rates through use of the Culture Acceleration Tool and Methodology (CATM). This tool combines the methodology of the Organizational Cultural Assessment Instrument (OCAI), Action
Design Thinking and Group Decision Support Systems.
In order to transform employee mindsets and align workforces to the strategic goals of their organisation in Industry 4.0, culture change and organisational transformation is necessary. However, culture change is a complex process which takes years to complete, often with low success rates. In
Accelerating Organisation Culture Change, Jaclyn Lee presents resolutions to these issues through the CATM toolkit that combines capabilities of diagnosing culture, refining the change process, and using a digital platform to brainstorm and set clear goals for change management.
Including real life case studies on the application of CATM in organisations, the book demonstrates the possibility of a higher success rate with organisational culture change management, and provides researchers, organisations and practitioners with a clear roadmap on how to develop the CATM
toolkit for their own culture transformation journey.

Development projects, nearly always all hope and optimism at their inception, have often failed to maintain their impetus and impact in the long run. This is usually because they have failed from the outset to account for how imbalances of power, legacies of colonialism and global wealth
inequalities can hamper their staying power. These hurdles have only become greater in the wake of Covid-19.
Drawing on over twenty-seven years of experience on both the front lines and the corporate and business sides of international development, Raif Shwayri offers practical models for navigating the major structural and strategic problems currently facing the workers and organizations who strive to
make significant, long-lasting changes in developing countries. Shwayri’s new models emerge from his unique insights into the limitations of common approaches to structuring and monitoring initiatives, and they emphasize the crucial importance of vocational education, collaboration with
business, and higher education and research for keeping an organization fresh and focussed.
For its combination of industry-level analysis with insights gained from a wealth of personal professional experience, Economically Sustainable Development is a must-read not only for researchers in international development, but also for policymakers and practitioners struggling to come to
terms with the state of an industry in a time of global economic crisis.
Any significant organizational level change initiative is dependent on the engagement of the people working in that organization. Without engagement, change will falter and ultimately fail. Engaging Change goes behind the scenes of change management to help managers, consultants and practitioners
understand why some things work and why others don't. Engaging Change addresses current challenges such as how to understand the environmental context driving the need for change; how to initiate and sustain momentum throughout the change programme; how to institutionalize structural and behavioural
change; and how to create compelling visions. With case studies from Sony, Nestlé, Redcats (who own La Redoute, for example) and the British Army, the text provides practice-based insights into the realities of leading sustainable change.
Food insecurity can result from various events. When food is abundant, the entitlement to food is limited by endowments, the ability to trade, and potential transfers from family or the government. This volume utilizes a country and regional perspective to examine food insecurity. We consider the
interaction between income and the share of household expenditures on food. The epidemiological risk assessment approach to food security issues is utilized as a function of agricultural and production, food distribution, and health policies. The interdependence of food security and climate change
is examined. Overall trends in economic growth and poverty reduction, constraints and bottlenecks in agricultural productivity growth, regional trade agreements, and other influential policies are reviewed and discussed. We also consider food security as related to food consumption patterns and
obesity. The role of income diversification as well as the impact of Farmer School Fields on food security are examined. The impact of inheritance and transfer entitlements is examined as we consider the role of remittances as well as 'ganyu' or casual labor in determining food security.
International trade agreements are central to food security. The links between trade and the four dimensions in food security (availability, access, utilization, and stability) are examined. Freer trade in agricultural products provides additional food security. This is bolstered by factors such as
increasing the use of GMOs, reducing food waste, and increasing investment in research and development. Also important is the ability of poor people to obtain food in the presence of transportation bottlenecks. Since low-income households spend most of their money on food, policy makers need to be
aware of the harm caused by high and volatile food prices. Thus, food security and poverty are very much linked. We provide an understanding of the meaning and measurement of food security and the impacts of government policies in poverty alleviation. In terms of investment in research and
development, even with increased productivity, problems attached to food security will remain unless there are significant changes in global income distribution. Global food shortages are due more to the lack of purchasing power rather than lack of food supplies, with the food gap continuing to
The Western Balkans and associated countries are striving to achieve and foster their economic growth, social well-being, and sustainable development. For all three of these areas, the tourism sector is a major source of income, change, and innovation, and the common gastronomic heritage of the
Western Balkans presents a unique opportunity to develop tourism products that go far beyond different national identities. Today, several dishes, preparation methods, and service procedures are recognised as the Gastronomy of the Balkans, presenting a fascinating “melange” of
West-European, Mediterranean, and oriental culinary traditions with a special local (the Balkan) touch. Taking into consideration how the Western Balkan countries are following the most tourist developed countries of Central Europe, which are nowadays keen to develop authentic and recognisable
gastronomic tourism products, this exciting new book redresses the growing need for research that expands the current knowledge base regarding the tourism and gastronomic potentials for the region. A theoretical and practical guide for the gastronomic future of the Western Balkans, Gastronomy for
Tourism Development: Potential of the Western Balkans shows the drivers, potentials, and barriers affecting the region in its effort to become a prominent European food destination in the 21st century.
