MAINSTREAM - A Revisionist Guide to Jazz

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/mainstream-a-revisionist-gu...
The subject of jazz is beset by numerous controversies and questions. Is it a type of black music that has been appropriated by white artists and commercial entrepreneurs? Is it a kind of musical abberation that can be located somewhere between folk and what is vaguely called classical? Or is it something singular and distinctive? Is it a form of protest against conventional social norms and values? Is it essentially visceral, an emotional foot-tapping experience? Or is it cerebral more of an intellectual exercise? And more to the point in this discussion what of the idea that there is a pure tradition of what is held to be true jazz as opposed to what some see as the ersatz syncopated variety that has been promoted by imitators in order to command a wide audience? And where does pop music figure in all this? These are all arguments that have been offered at various times by detractors and supporters alike. These are all explored in this text with what are felt to be appropriate examples. So this is not exclusively a history of jazz, nor does it concentrate on great personalities (there are numerous texts on these), although both have to be included. It is more concerned with what jazz is about and how it can be appreciated even by those who dont actually like it. It is about form and structure, and not least about skill, both in musicianship and improvisation.

Corporate Culture

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/corporate-culture...
Organizational culture is a quiet, but driving, influence on our perception of a company, whether as a consumer or as an employee. For instance, we know Southwest Airlines as laid back and friendly. We think of Google as innovative. To almost every well-known company we can assign a character. It is now well recognized that corporate culture has a significant impact on organizational health and performance. Yet, the concept of corporate culture and culture management is too often tantalizingly elusive. In this book, Flamholtz and Randle define culture, identifying and explaining the five key dimensions that determine it: a customer orientation; a people orientation; a process orientation; strong standards of performance and accountability; innovation and openness to change. They explain why culture is a critical factor in organizational success and failure-a key determinant of financial performance. Then, they provide a theoretically sound, highly practical, and field-tested method for managing corporate culture-presenting a set of international and domestic cases that show how actual companies have leveraged culture as the ultimate source of sustainable competitive advantage. In addition to well-known companies such as Starbucks, Ritz-Carlton, American Express, IBM, and Toyota, the text presents lesser known culture stars, such as Smartmatic and Infogix. While other titles on culture have focused too heavily on the organization as a psychological being, or on academic studies of culture as a business lever, Corporate Culture draws on empirics to present a go-to, must-read guide for leveraging corporate culture as a source of competitive advantage and as a means of impacting the bottom line.
