Over 5,300 total pages .... MARINE RECON Reconnaissance units are the commander’s eyes and ears on the battlefield. They are task organized as a highly trained six man team capable of conducting specific missions behind enemy lines. Employed as part of the Marine Air- Ground Task Force, reconnaissance teams provide timely information to the supported commander to shape and influence the battlefield. The varying types of missions a Reconnaissance team conduct depends on how deep in the battle space they are operating. Division Reconnaissance units support the close and distant battlespace, while Force Reconnaissance units conduct deep reconnaissance in support of a landing force. Common missions include, but are not limited to: Plan, coordinate, and conduct amphibious-ground reconnaissance and surveillance to observe, identify, and report enemy activity, and collect other information of military significance. Conduct specialized surveying to include: underwater reconnaissance and/or demolitions, beach permeability and topography, routes, bridges, structures, urban/rural areas, helicopter landing zones (LZ), parachute drop zones (DZ), aircraft forward operating sites, and mechanized reconnaissance missions. When properly task organized with other forces, equipment or personnel, assist in specialized engineer, radio, and other special reconnaissance missions. Infiltrate mission areas by necessary means to include: surface, subsurface and airborne operations. Conduct Initial Terminal Guidance (ITG) for helicopters, landing craft, parachutists, air-delivery, and re-supply. Designate and engage selected targets with organic weapons and force fires to support battlespace shaping. This includes designation and terminal guidance of precision-guided munitions. Conduct post-strike reconnaissance to determine and report battle damage assessment on a specified target or area. Conduct limited scale raids and ambushes.

Ob man zu Hause arbeitet oder im Ausland, Geschäftserfolg in unserer immer mehr globalisierten und virtuellen Welt erfordert die Fähigkeit, durch kulturelle Unterschiede zu navigieren und fremde Kulturen zu entschlüsseln. Die renommierte Expertin Erin Meyer ist Ihr Guide durch dieses schwierige, manchmal trügerische Gelände, in dem von Menschen mit gänzlich unterschiedlichem Background erwartet wird, harmonisch zusammenzuarbeiten. Selbst mit Englisch als globaler Sprache ist es leicht in kulturelle Fallen zu tappen, die die Karriere gefährden oder Abschlüsse zunichtemachen können. Zum Beispiel wenn ein brasilianischer Manager versucht, zu ergründen, wie sein chinesischer Lieferant Dinge erledigt; oder ein amerikanischer Chef versucht, mit den Dynamiken innerhalb seines Teams zwischen russischen und indischen Teammitgliedern umzugehen. In der "Culture Map" liefert Erin Meyer nun ein praxiserprobtes Modell, einen Kompass, um zu dekodieren, wie kulturelle Unterschiede internationalen Erfolg beeinflussen. Sie kombiniert ein kluges analytisches Framework mit praktischen Tipps für mehr Erfolg in einer globalen Welt. Im Modell der "Culture Map" werden 8 Dimensionen (unter anderem Kommunizieren, Führen, Vertrauen, Entscheiden) betrachtet. Diese Dimensionen steigern die Effektivität der Arbeit - egal, ob man seine Mitarbeiter motivieren, Kunden erfreuen will oder einfach nur einen Conference-Call plant, an dem Mitglieder unterschiedlicher Kulturen teilnehmen. Die Leser werden in die Lage versetzt, sich und ihre Position gegenüber den anderen einzuordnen und zu entschlüsseln, wie die Kultur die eigene internationale Zusammenarbeit (Kollaboration) beeinflusst, um unangenehme Situationen oder Fiaskos zu vermeiden. Die deutsche Ausgabe des Buches wird von der Autorin aktualisiert. Drei neue Länder (Türkei, Marokko, Irak) werden zusätzlich in die Betrachtung aufgenommen.
