27. The leader in the group (1975)

Slice ePub May 23, 2014
<p> <i>The volume to which this chapter was contributed was published in honour of Alexander Wolf and contains a number of papers by him on the theme of leadership, mostly written jointly with Emanuel K. Schwartz. Schwartz, Wolfs long-time colleague, had begun to edit this volume, but he died before he could complete the task.</i> </p><p> <i>Contributions were invited on the theme of leadership from a number of colleagues, Foulkes being one of the few non-Americans. His chapter is reproduced here fairly fully, omitting some passages that duplicate material covered in other parts of this volume.</i> </p><p>Chapter in Z. A. Liff (ed.), <i>The Leader in the Group </i>(New York: Jason Aronson, 1975), pp. 83-94.</p><p>It gives me great pleasure to make a small contribution in tribute to Alexander Wolf, one of the pioneers of group analysis in the wider sense, that is to say in the application of psychoanalytical concepts and techniques to the group setting.</p><p>I first met Dr Wolf when S. R. Slavson invited me to give a paper to the American Group Psychotherapy Association in 1949. It was the wish of the committee organizing that meeting that the paper be devoted to leadership, specifically in group-analytic psychotherapy. I had not then met Dr Wolf, nor did I know anything of his work when he spoke during the discussion of my paper. As on another occasion some ten years later, he was quite critical of my ideas. I was under the impression that he did not talk about my paper at all, and I remember saying to my colleagues when I came back home to England: In America discussions are very funny; they don’t talk about your paper but entirely about their own work.’ Samuel Hadden, who was in the chair, later called my attention to the fact that either by mistake or by intention I had referred to Dr Wolfs contribution as ‘Dr Wolfs paper/1 cannot say which of the two it was.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/306796-selected-papers-psychoanalysis-and-group-analysis">See more</a>

6.2. Installing Windows SharePoint Services

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p>Installation of Windows SharePoint Services is done by means of a simple wizard. In most cases, you can follow the defaults, walk away from the server, and the installation will be complete. Instead of going over the installation instructions step by step for Windows SharePoint Services, this chapter looks at the installation from a high-level overview. The topics covered include:</p><p>Deployment options</p><p>Installation process</p><p>Configuring Windows SharePoint Services</p><p>You can install Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 in several different configurations based on the number of servers you wish to use. Each option has different strengths and physical requirements. The option you choose depends on your business requirements and the size of your organization.</p><p>You can deploy an entire SharePoint Services instance to a single server. All SharePoint sites are hosted on this server, as is the database. This option is the quickest and easiest deployment method, but it is also the most limited in terms of scalability and performance.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362472-sharepoint-user-s-guide">See more</a>

2. Getting Started

<p>Lets install Hadoop and Hive on our personal workstation. This is a convenient way to learn and experiment with Hadoop. Then well discuss how to configure Hive for use on Hadoop clusters.</p><p>If you already use Amazon Web Services, the fastest path to setting up Hive for learning is to run a Hive-configured <em>job flow</em> on <em>Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR)</em>. We discuss this option in Chapter21.</p><p>If you have access to a Hadoop cluster with Hive already installed, we encourage you to skim the first part of this chapter and pick up again at What Is Inside Hive?.</p><p>There are several ways you can install Hadoop and Hive. An easy way to install a complete Hadoop system, including Hive, is to download a preconfigured <em>virtual machine</em> (VM) that runs in <em>VMWare</em><sup>[</sup>11] or <em>VirtualBox</em><sup>[12]</sup>. For VMWare, either <em>VMWare Player</em> for Windows and Linux (free) or <em>VMWare Fusion</em> for Mac OS X (inexpensive) can be used. VirtualBox is free for all these platforms, and also Solaris.</p><p>The virtual machines use Linux as the operating system, which is currently the only recommended operating system for running Hadoop in production.<sup>[13]</sup></p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362644-programming-hive">See more</a>

14. Obvious Lessons and Subtle Lessons

Slice ePub May 15, 2014
<p>The analysis of the DEC story teaches us two things about how the world works. First, the lessons of history can be viewed on various levels—there are obvious lessons to be learned that are fairly clear based on events, but, more important, there are subtle lessons to be learned by trying to explain why the obvious events occurred. Second, the events of history are highly interactive. The search for root causes is flawed because it implies that there is a root cause, when, in fact, the events may have occurred for a multiplicity of reasons. For example, it is obvious that one of the reasons DEC failed is that it did not respond to the shifting market away from minicomputers to personal computers. But why did DEC not make this shift? Many senior DEC managers and engineers saw the shift in the market, saw the need to respond to it, and came out with a variety of products to compete with the PC but never could make the trade-offs that would have had to be made to be competitive because such changes were not supported by the cultural DNA.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/599608-dec-is-dead-long-live-dec-the-lasting-legacy-of-digital-equipment-corporation">See more</a>
