Responding to Crises in the Modern Infrastructure:Policy Lessons from Y2K K. Quigley
With the world becoming increasingly dependent on technology, it is not surprise to anyone that IT projects are literally coming out of the woodwork. If that is not a big enough pill to swallow, IT projects, regardless of their particular industry, fail at a higher rate than infrastructure projects. All of this means that the project manager´s role is crucial, and is even more crucial when it comes to healthcare IT projects. Healthcare is a big business and is only continuing to grow. Because of this, technology must adapt and transform to meet the needs of the public. Failed healthcare IT projects are nothing new. However, they surely are something that can be learned from. In every failure is a lesson that can be used for a future project - a lesson that can help to save, or better, someone else´s life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paula Slade.

When the Rubber Hits the Road:Leadership Lessons for the Infrastructure Industry Brenda Jamnik
Slow Burn: Infected picks up the story of Zed, Murphy, and Jerome where Slow Burn: Zero Day ended. All three have all been infected but have not succumbed to the most pernicious symptoms of the virus. They´re not the mindless cannibals that most infected are. Nevertheless, their band of survivors, fearful about the trio´s infections, have ostracized them. Now, back on the street, with weapons to defend themselves but little food in their packs, they embark on a search for Murphy´s family while following the rumor of a safe haven in the form of a doomsday bunker under a house in east Austin. But the world is more hazardous than they could have guessed. They expect violence from the voracious infected but they have harsh lessons to learn about the lethality of the uninfected. And without people to support the infrastructure of modern civilization, they find that danger comes in many forms. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jason Damron.

Survive the infection! Survive the infected. Book 1: A new flu strain has been spreading across Africa, Europe, and Asia. Disturbing news footage is flooding the cable news channels. People are worried and frightened. But Zed Zane is oblivious. He needs to borrow rent money from his parents. He gets up Sunday morning, drinks enough tequila to stifle his pride, and heads to his mom´s house for a lunch of begging, again. But something is wrong. There´s blood in the foyer. His mother´s corpse is on the living room floor. Zed´s stepdad Dan is wild with crazy-eyed violence and attacks Zed when he comes into the house. They struggle into the kitchen. Dan´s yellow teeth tear at Zed´s arm, but he grabs a knife and stabs Dan 37 times, or so the police later say. With infection burning in his blood, Zed is arrested for murder but the world is falling apart, and he soon finds himself back on the street, fighting for his life among the infected who would kill him and the normal people, who fear him. Book 2: Slow Burn: Infected picks up the story of Zed, Murphy, and Jerome where Slow Burn: Zero Day ended. All three have been infected but have not succumbed to the most pernicious symptoms of the virus. Nevertheless, their band of fearful survivors, have ostracized them. Back on the street, with weapons to defend themselves but little food in their packs, they embark on a search for Murphy´s family while following a rumor of safe haven in the form of a doomsday bunker in east Austin. But the world is more hazardous than they know. They expect violence from the voracious infected, but they have harsh lessons to learn about the uninfected. And humans to support the infrastructure of modern civilization, they find that danger comes in many forms. Book 3: Zed is saying goodbye to one friend and pressing forward. 1. Language: English.
