Students, practitioners, and businesses will all benefit from this free eBook, which focuses on project governance and asset management. We are breaking new ground by establishing the value proposition associated with the integration of both AM and Governance. Both areas, in our opinion, are inextricably connected in project management. In this eBook, which we have written as a manual, the ideas of assets and governance are brought together, and an agile governance framework is introduced. We hope to examine how these ideas may be used in project management in order to provide you with beneficial methodologies and approaches.

When Europeans entered the Pacific they entered a place they thought they knew, and a place that was already peopled. European explorer accounts of Australia and the Pacific are fascinating in what they reveal about the people and places explorers encountered, and about European expectations of what they would find. This book is a guide to European exploration of Australia and the Pacific; to those accounts of contact and how to interpret them in the light of European preconceptions and misunderstanding; and to the actions taken by the people descended from the regions' original explorers.

Often the lessons to be learned from recipients of care are overshadowed by more formal learning strategies. Ed’s story is one of compassion, strength, laughter, loyalty and loss.  It chronicles the journey of caring for a loved one diagnosed with Dementia with Lewy Bodies.  Unfortunately, diagnosis of any form of dementia is more frequent in our communities than many of us are aware.  Very few people, however, journal their story as their lives, and that of those around them, change. Thus, the richness of learning from recipients of formal care and support is a unique opportunity for all health professionals working in dementia care. Further, the raw, honest insights in Ed’s story are a valuable learning tool for any health professional from any discipline, particularly those who are still learning their craft. Sometimes the impact our words and actions have on patients and families is not apparent, and Ed’s reflections allow us a glimpse into how the actions and words affect them, both positively and negatively.
