Grass Productivity An Introduction to Rational Grazing Book Review:

SIMPLE questions often help us to understand problems better; and I think it indispensable, at the beginning of this work, to ask a question which appears simple in the extreme: "What is grazing?" The answer is generally as follows: "Causing grass to be eaten by an animal." That is correct! But here is another answer which, to my mind, is more realistic: "Causing the grass and the animal to meet." Since this book is almost exclusively concerned with grazing by cattle, I propose the following definition to the reader, requesting him to allow it to become well impressed upon his mind: Grazing is the meeting of cow and grass. It is by satisfying as far as possible the demands of both parties that we will arrive at a rational grazing, which will provide us with maximum productivity on the part of the grass while at the same time allowing the cow to give optimum performance. [From the Introduction]

Productivity Now Book Review:

Productivity Now presents the proper study of management. This book examines the three ways of increasing productivity, namely, by improved management technology, by improved machine technology and investment, and by a faster rate of work. Comprised of four chapters, this book begins with an overview of the differences between short-term productivity advances and long-term improvements. This text then examines the significance of cooperation between the management and workers. Other chapters consider the main disadvantages with the use of industrial consultants whereby his actions are misunderstood and his motives are mistrusted by the people he hopes to reorganize. This book discusses as well the distinction between organization and cooperation in increasing productivity. The final chapter deals with work simplification, work measurement, and production control. This book is a valuable resource for operational and plant managers. Management writers, industrial consultants, research workers, graduate students, and economists will also find this book useful.

Survey of Public Library Efforts to Enhance Productivity Through Information Technology Book Review:

The study looks closely particularly at how public libraries use computer programming and programmers, both librarians schooled in programming and IT staff programmers. The report gives detailed data on how libraries are automating website management, book check out, accounts payable and other areas. It looks at how libraries are avoiding the repetitive re-keying of information, improving staff communications and making sure that skills are passed from one employee to another, and other useful productivity measures. The study also presents detailed quantitative data on the extent to which libraries are using key programming languages such as PHP, PERL, JAVA, C++, Drupal, Python and others. The study also gives data on spending on outside computer consulting and programming services, the extent of use of staff programmers, and licensing of computer code. Data in the 100+ page report is broken out by size of library service area and size of library staff, mean per capita household income of library service area and also for libraries that employ programmers and those that do not, and for libraries that use outside programmers or consultants and those that do not.
