Perhaps you have already noticed that a fundamentally new period of IT is now upon us--the era of "adaptation"--in which our systems learn from their experiences with us, and then deliver this learning back to us in ways that make us all smarter and more productive. Emerging from this era of adaptation is a radically new phenomenon that goes well beyond the bounds and categories that have come before it, called "the learning layer."
The learning layer is a merging of people and systems that "automatically learns," "evolves, "and" integrates "into the very" fabric "of your business. The learning layer takes its lessons from the way the brain works, taps into the cognitive surplus of your organization, and leads to possibilities for attaining whole new levels of business productivity, innovation, and sustainable advantages. It makes the dream of the truly adaptive enterprise a reality.
Author Steven Flinn draws on his experience and expertise as a senior global executive, CIO, strategist, scientist, and inventor, to provide an in-depth look at the learning layer and how it promises to transform the performance of your organization.
"The Learning Layer" is written for business executives who want to begin staking out opportunities for taking their businesses to the next level of performance, as well as for practitioners in fields such as IT, knowledge management, organizational learning, and business innovation. And business and technology futurists who seek to understand, and extrapolate from, the next major wave of IT capabilities will find much to consider in these pages.

Transparency of trade regulations by all WTO Members is essential for open, fair and predictable trade relations. A myriad of different regulations apply in all WTO Members and have the potential for affecting international trade. The Agreements on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary measures and on Technical Barriers to Trade provide the most comprehensive frameworks in the WTO to address the costs arising from such regulatory diversity, through obligations on regulatory transparency and co-operation. This book gives a detailed account of the legal disciplines of the two Agreements, an in-depth presentation of discussions between WTO Members, and an overview of the few cases that end up in formal dispute settlement. It shows that the strength of the WTO legal and institutional system goes well beyond its dispute settlement system, with transparency enabling implementation of WTO obligations through better information sharing and co-operation among Members themselves, through non-judicial means.

It is said that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. It is a
time honored cautionary statement that has suddenly acquired a new
urgency. A little knowledge is dangerous, because as a force for
dramatic change, knowledge today is revolutionary. More is known
and being learned everyday than was ever known or learned before.
As a direct result, the pace of change-and that means change in the
sense of everything from business to economics, science, medicine,
and politics-is beginning to accelerate much more rapidly than ever
before in mankind's history.

Russian businessman Dmitry Rybolovlev ranks in the top 200 wealthiest people in the world, according to Forbes Magazine. Since December 2011 he has been the Chairman of AS Monaco, regenerating the famous football club, and taking it from the bottom of the French Ligue 2 to the semi-finals of the Champions League and the French Ligue 1 Championship title in 2017. A man of many parts, he first trained to be an emergency cardiologist, then became an international businessman, spending eleven months as a prisoner in a Russian jail for a crime he did not commit, before going on to transform the fortunes of fertiliser giant Uralkali and listing the company on the London Stock Exchange. From Russia's Urals Mountains to Monaco's Stade Louis II, this biography traces the epic saga of this reserved, determined and enigmatic character. It dissects his extraordinary story and takes us backstage at this famous football club, where the transfers and negotiations take place. It transports us from Rybolovlev's hometown of Perm in eastern Russia to the private Greek island of Skorpios once owned by Aristotle Onassis and now the retreat of Rybolovlev and his family. Based on dozens of interviews with sources from the businessman's past and present, and with rare access to Dmitry Rybolovlev himself, this is the complete story.
This is the first-ever book about product and country images. It goes considerably beyond what was known until now about these images on buyer behavior and international market strategy. Thousands of companies use country identifiers as part of their international marketing strategy and hundreds of researchers have studied the ways in which these identifiers influence behavior. As markets become more international, the more prominently the origin of products will figure in sellers'and buyers'decisions. The time is ripe for practitioners and academicians to delve into the insights offered in this seminal volume so as to better prepare for meeting the competitive challenges of the global marketplace.National stereotyping and consumer biases in favor or against countries, based on image, have been known for some time to influence their marketplace decisions. Businesspeople who want to learn how to use country identifiers effectively, when to use them and when to avoid them, and how country images affect the behavior of consumers in their target markets will want to read this book cover to cover. Product-Country Images discusses the nature and role and influence of product-country images in international marketing strategy and consumer behavior. It is a wide-ranging and state-of-the-art book offering specific information and case studies to further understanding of the various aspects of this complex topic.Written by the world's preeminent researchers in the field from both academic and business sectors--a total of twenty-nine researchers from eleven countries--Product-Country Images presents the work of some of the best minds in the area--Johansson, Morello, Nebenzahl and Jaffe, Crawford and Lumpkin, Yaprak, Liefeld, and Wall, and the editors, Papadopoulos and Heslop, who have also authored some of its chapters. The chapters cover areas related to the main theme from both theoretical and practical perspectives and address questions of international marketing strategy, public policy, and research methodology. The subject is treated at a level suitable for business executives, public policymakers, academic researchers, and university students.Generally, the influence of product country images is so pervasive that this will be an indispensable reference and guidebook to anyone interested in understanding better, and/or enhancing the effectiveness of, international consumer behavior, international marketing, and international marketing strategy. Academic researchers specializing in country-product images, international marketing, and other fields, such as decisionmaking, cultural anthropology, international behavior, and perhaps most importantly, social psychology for international relations, will find readily applicable information and new directions for further research. International business marketing practitioners and public policymakers will find the practical information on the role and importance of country image in attracting foreign investment, promoting a nation's exports, protecting domestic markets from imports, and capitalizing on major international events for promoting national image immediately useful in formulating strategies and policies. International marketing/business students will be better prepared for a competitive world from being exposed to this field of knowledge and its implications which are relevant to many subdisciplines.The made-in notion is a matter of tremendous importance in international marketing strategy, public policymaking, and research. With this in mind, editors Papadopoulos and Heslop take special care to achieve a blend of practice and theory and of the strategic, policy, and research perspectives. As such, Product-Country Images is divided into five main sections so that readers will be able to find the information they need: In the first section, the chapters that introduce the subject, provide an overview of the field,
