A Publication of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology Praise for Strategy-Driven Talent Management "Silzer and Dowell's Strategy-Driven Talent Management provides a comprehensive overview of the different elements of the best talent management processes used in organizations today. This is a valuable resource for leaders and managers, HR practitioners and anyone involved in developing leadership talent." —Ed Lawler, Professor, School of Business, University of Southern California "Talent is the key to successful execution of a winning business strategy. Strategy-Driven Talent Management by Silzer & Dowell provides a thorough and very practical guide to building and managing talent based on the strategic needs of the organization. Business leaders will find this an excellent resource with many interesting examples and best practices from leading companies." —Herbert L. Henkel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Ingersoll Rand "Thanks to Strategy-Driven Talent Management, we can move from an attractive idea of talent management to practices that deliver. This book brings the work of practitioners—the people who are inventing, crafting, and shaping the field of talent management—to the forefront. Their collective experiences and insights will certainly enrich your own research and practice." —Cynthia McCauley, PhD, Senior Fellow, Center for Creative Leadership "It is exciting to see that Rob Silzer and Ben Dowell have given us the state of the art in 2010 of integrating human resource issues into strategic management. This volume is a must read for human resource and line leaders alike. The journey is far from over, but this volume of work will chart the course for further progress." —Noel Tichy, Professor, Management and Organizations, University of Michigan, Ross School of Business

"An accessible guide for increasing female presence and leadership in tech companies. Tech giants like Apple and Google are among the fastest growing companies in the world, leading innovations in design and development. Owning most of the world's consumer electronics and digital software market, the cutting-edge tech industry extends far beyond Silicon Valley. The industry continues to see rapid growth and employs millions, in the US it is at the epicenter of the American economy. So why is that only 5% of senior executives in the tech industry are female? Underrepresentation of women on boards of directors, in the C-suite, and as senior managers remains pervasive at these giants. As tech companies are plagued with high-profile claims of harassment and discrimination, and salary discrepancies for comparable work, what exactly is preventing women from reaching management roles, and, more importantly, what can be done to fix it? The Future of Tech is Female considers the paradoxes involved in women's ascension to leadership roles, and suggests industry-wide solutions to combat gender inequality. Drawing on 15 years of speaking, conferencing, writing, and publishing, Douglas M. Branson traces the history of women in information technology in order to identify solutions for the current issues facing women in the industry today. Branson explores a variety of solutions such as mandatory quota laws for female employment, pledge programs, and expansion of the H1-B VISA program, and grapples with the challenges facing women in IT from a range of perspectives. Branson unpacks the plethora of reasons women should hold leadership roles, both in and out of this industry, and concludes with a call to reform attitudes toward women in one particular IT branch, the video and computer gaming field, a gateway to many STEM futures. An invaluable resource for anyone invested in gender equality in the boardroom, The Future of Tech is Female lays out the first steps toward a more diverse future for women in tech leadership. This book provides a sobering look at gender gap while painting an encouraging picture on how the world's fastest growing industry can work towards breaking the glass ceiling."--

This is the first volume to consider the popular literary category of Early Readers – books written and designed for children who are just beginning to read independently. It argues that Early Readers deserve more scholarly attention and careful thought because they are, for many younger readers, their first opportunity to engage with a work of literature on their own, to feel a sense of mastery over a text, and to experience pleasure from the act of reading independently. Using interdisciplinary approaches that draw upon and synthesize research being done in education, child psychology, sociology, cultural studies, and children’s literature, the volume visits Early Readers from a variety of angles: as teaching tools; as cultural artifacts that shape cultural and individual subjectivity; as mass produced products sold to a niche market of parents, educators, and young children; and as aesthetic objects, works of literature and art with specific conventions. Examining the reasons such books are so popular with young readers, as well as the reasons that some adults challenge and censor them, the volume considers the ways Early Readers contribute to the construction of younger children as readers, thinkers, consumers, and as gendered, raced, classed subjects. It also addresses children’s texts that have been translated and sold around the globe, examining them as part of an increasingly transnational children’s media culture that may add to or supplant regional, ethnic, and national children’s literatures and cultures. While this collection focuses mostly on books written in English and often aimed at children living in the US, it is important to acknowledge that these Early Readers are a major US cultural export, influencing the reading habits and development of children across the globe.
