‘Why doesn’t he use a spoon?’ is a guide on how to negotiate successfully in international business in the 21st century. Books on commercial negotiation are either written by academics keen to promulgate the results of their latest research or by business people who want to recount their ‘war stories’ from the negotiation battlefield. This book takes the research which is relevant to the international negotiator and adds the authors’ own negotiating experience.What are the main messages of this book?· Win-win is not the same as let’s compromise. As a negotiator you should be trying to get the best possible deal for your side. · Always look for creative solutions, rather than just sticking to your original position.· Prepare yourself thoroughly and keep testing your assumptions by asking questions, a much underrated and underused skill.· Adapt your negotiation strategy, your behaviour and your communication style to suit the people you are dealing with and the culture they come from.· Negotiating can be fun.Between them over the last 35 years, the authors have been on either the sales or buying side of the negotiating table in more than 30 different countries on five continents. For much of that time, they have also worked as trainers of negotiation skills to suppliers and buyers from a wide range of international companies. Throughout the book, the authors refer to examples of real business negotiations, as well as a realistic, though made-up, negotiation between two fictional companies.

Thus, the contents of the subject are primarily determined by practical needs of providing a comprehensive account of the rules governing legal relationships of business entities.This book is an english translation of the Danish title: "Dansk Erhvervsret".

Diagnostic ultrasound and MR has revolutionized musculoskeletal imaging. The focus has been on MR-imaging, but modern, high resolution ultrasound can produce similar results, and in many applications perform even better than MR. Today, ultrasound is the “extended finger” of the clinicians, and the continuous, rapid advances in technology will make the modality even more interesting in the future. The aim of this book is to give an introduction to practical musculoskeletal ultrasound. In pictorial form the book presents ultrasound appearances of normal musculoskeletal structures followed by commonly encountered abnormalities in well-defined standard projections.
Regardless of whether we want to deal with the Chinese, integrate staff from India or work with various different regions in the same country, cultural habits are there to trip us up. Conventional thinking and lack of cultural intelligence constantly wreck masses of opportunities. And if you are one of those expats here in the Kingdom of Denmark, then you have bigger challenges than most.According to studies around a third of highly skilled people who move to Denmark get negatively surprised by the cultural differences. Butthat’s not very surprising. In the social sciences it’s nothing new that Denmark and the rest of Scandinavia are significantly culturally differentfrom a lot of other places in the world.You can’t find a country with more trust, less religiousness, a greater emphasis on equality but also a significant tendency to social reclusivenessand much more. But why are they so different and how do you crack the code of Danish society?Dennis Nørmark has written an easy-to-read and practical book. With specific examples, funny anecdotes and thorough research, he givesus a solid tool for collaboration and co-existence. First and foremost about encounters with Danes, but he also gives examples from the whole world in this easy-to-read handbook about how we can take control of our most primitive instincts and turn cultural problems into opportunities.The book is also available in Danish.

In 70,000 years, we have reshaped Earth's biology twice. First, we killed all the megafauna on the planet, and then we planted and domesticated everything, including ourselves. We upgraded ourselves from believing to knowing, dethroned God, and did put ourselves on the throne, inherited the earth, and a responsibility that we and our closest ancestors have never taken seriously. We have enough to eat and no one eats us anymore. Our only enemy is our own lack of knowledge of who and what we and our neighbors really are. We need a revolution so that we can learn that there is space and need for everyone and that there is really nothing to be afraid of. We need an educational revolution.
This book will help you navigate in the bewildering and often contradictory flood of information about vaccines. There is substantial misinformation about vaccines on the Internet, particularly from those who reject all vaccines, but also from official sources, which are expected to be neutral and objective. The book is based on the best available evidence, and Professor Gøtzsche explains when and why we should not have confidence in the science and official recommendations. Some vaccines are so beneficial - and have saved millions of lives – that we should all get them; some are so poor that many healthcare professionals do not use them for themselves or their families; and some are in-between. We must evaluate carefully each vaccine, one by one, assessing the balance between its benefits and harms, just as we do for other drugs, and then form an opinion about whether we think the vaccine is worth getting or recommending to other people. The book focuses on measles, influenza and HPV but discusses also childhood vaccination programmes and whether mandatory vaccination can be justified. Raising critical questions to vaccines is essential because there are still many unresolved issues. For example, we know virtually nothing about what happens when we use many vaccines and what the long-term effects are on the immune system.

"It does not belong to our culture", "Ethnic minorities must integrate into the labour market", "We are heading for a multicultural society". We often meet these statements in newspapers, in political debates or among friends when political issues about integration or multiculturalism are discussed at various levels. But the discussions often lack a qualified foundation. If one were to discuss the economy, one would not make authoritative claims without some knowledge about central concepts, but in the field of intercultural relation it is free-for-all. The result is that decisions are often made on the basis of individual or political notions about "the Other". Introduction to Cultural Understanding offers a number of analytical tools for understanding communication across cultures.How does our view of culture affect the way we understand each other? Is it possible to develop awareness of cultural identity? How can the development of a multicultural society be seen from a theoretical perspective? How is language implicated in the way we understand each other?
Power in Projects, Programs and Portfolios is the best-selling Danish project management book. It highlights the immensely successful Scandinavian approach to leadership within project management, and takes a more holistic approach to project work and project management. This authoritative book deals with both classic project management disciplines, agile methods and focuses on the essential link between strategic priorities, any program´s impact and a project’s powerful execution. It takes an in depth look at areas such as change management, change communication, benefit tracking, program management and portfolio management.This book offers you a large number of practical tools within projects management and leadership with on-line access to concrete and easy-to-use practical tools and templates. Recent years have seen a pronounced increase in the need for professional project managementand the careful handling of associated portfolios. This success is essential as key projects become ever more vital for the development and survival of organizations. It is no longer enough for projects to ‘just’ produce a set of deliverables. They are expected to make a genuine difference within the organization and effect that organization’s role in the wider world. Consequently, project management is not just about project managers, it’s about how senior management handle crucial portfolios successfully too. Such active project management requires power, strength, drive and energy not only within the individual project itself but also within the organization’s programs and entire project portfolio. It places new demands on both the project manager and their seniormanagement.
With more than 50,000 copies sold in Denmark, this book has been on the bestseller list since its publication in 2017. Barack Obama used a secret competitive advantage to win two elections. Companies such as Google, Amazon and Novo Nordisk use the same insight to stir up innovation, increase compliance, improve the work environment and sell more products. And successful management groups in the C20 index have started using it as their preferred strategy. But what kind of insight are we talking about here? The answer is – behavioural design. Because people in the real world don’t actually behave like the people we build all our usual strategies for. We are opposing human biology and psychology when we insist that good arguments, burning platforms, classic change management, pamphlets, campaigns, and joint meetings are the way to go. Obama, Google and all the rest have instead opted to use an evidence-based approach to change behaviour, and when you’ve read I’m Afraid Debbie From Marketing Has Left for the Day, you can adopt this approach as well. In his book, Morten Münster has converted 40 years of research in human behaviour into an easily accessible method composed of four steps – a helping hand to all managers and employees who are thirsting for alternatives to conventional means.
PhD Dissertation from Department of Anthropology, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Copenhagen
The 1980 United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) regulates the rights of buyers and sellers in international sales. The Convention is the first sales law treaty to win acceptance on a worldwide scale, and the impressive list of some 85 CISG ‘Contracting States’ already accounts for more than three-fourths of all world trade. The importance of the CISG in the international arena is underlined by thousands of reported decisions where the CISG has been held to apply, thus evidencing the conduct of countless international traders who – by default or by express choice – regularly subject their sales contracts to the Convention. The CISG has also impacted on sales legislation at national and regional (e.g., EU) levels.The CISG treaty demands an international interpretation, and this fully updated Fifth (Worldwide) Edition draws upon the full range of primary as well as secondary sources of CISG law, including worldwide case law and scholarly opinion. Concrete examples are provided throughout.With this book as their guide, lawyers and students who need to understand international sales contracts and sales contract disputes will confidently navigate topic areas such as the following:• determining when the CISG applies;• freedom of contract under Article 6;• interpretation of the Convention and of CISG contracts;• sales contract formation, validity, defenses to enforcement;• obligations of the parties, including conforming delivery and payment;• remedies for breach, including specific performance, damages and avoidance;• liability exemptions; and• key reservations under Articles 92–96.Co-published by Wolters Kluwer.

Do you ever think about who knows what about you? That whenever you are online, on the web or using apps, your behaviour can affect your chances of landing a great job or losing it, being accepted at the school of your dreams, or receiving the best price for your insurance policy or a simple airline ticket?At home, at work, at school. Where you’re jogging or dating, shopping or searching, streaming music or simply reading something. You are constantly tracked - most often without you noticing or knowing about it.

What happens to your data, and which tools can you use, such as blocking cookies and trackers, disconnecting social buttons and - most importantly - using more identities, hiding behind pseudonyms and aliases.
