Making sustainability work : best practices in managing and measuring corporate social, environmental and economic impacts by Marc J Epstein( Book )

53 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The best practices in corporate sustainability performance are no longer the exclusive domain of companies like Ben & Jerry's or The Body Shop, as they were a decade ago; now, large, multinational companies like G.E. and Wal-Mart are leading the way with significant financial and organizational commitments to social and environmental issues. However, good intentions aren't enough. Whether motivated by concern for society and the environment, government regulation, stakeholder pressures, or economic profit, managers and strategists need to continue making significant changes to more effectively manage their social, economic, and environmental impacts - and to remain competitive. The guidance they need to do that is in this book." "Marc Epstein has produced the ultimate "how-to-do-it" guide for corporate leaders, strategists, academics, sustainability consultants, and anyone else with an interest in actually making sustainability work for organizations. With a growing number of corporate leaders asking for urgent help in "getting this done," the timing of the book could not be better."--Jacket

"This is the book I wish I had read thirty years ago. "Making Innovation Work" is an important resource for leaders who are trying to improve innovation in their organizations. It's crammed with examples and practical ideas that can trigger improvements in innovation, starting tomorrow!" - Lew Platt, Chairman of Boeing, former Chairman and CEO of HP, and former CEO of Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates. "Davila, Epstein, and Shelton remind us that even if the end product is rocket science, the process need not be. To the contrary, tried-and-true practices of management, process, metrics, and incentives are all that it takes to let innovation happen consistently." - Andrew Beebe, President, EnergyInnovations.""Making Innovation Work" is a fresh approach to systematically managing innovation. It integrates the innovation management literature in a way that is insightful, creative, as well as pragmatic. Davila, Epstein, and Shelton have particularly fresh insights on learning, culture, leadership, and executing change.

The innovation paradox : why good businesses kill breakthroughs and how they can change by Tony Davila( Book )

19 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the bestselling authors of Making Innovation Work (30,000 copies sold and translated into ten languages) comes a book that questions everything about how organizations innovate. Key takeaway: classical business management and corporate structures by their very nature will kill, not create, breakthroughs. The authors describe a new kind of organization--the startup corporation--that will make established companies as innovative as startups"--
Performance measurement and management control : superior organizational performance by Marc J Epstein( Book )

16 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Performance measurement and management control are critical components of improving organizational performance. But, researchers have historically had little success in determining the specific actions that lead to superior performance. After several decades of research in this area, we have few clear conclusions. But, recently researchers have provided some clarity. Managers and researchers have more carefully collected and analyzed data to better understand the most effective management control and performance measurement mechanisms to drive and measure superior organizational performance.

10 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Traditional pathways to delivering health care to the global poor are failing.

Measuring and improving social impacts : a guide for nonprofits, companies, and impact investors by Marc J Epstein( Book )

22 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The world is beset with enormous problems that desperately need solutions. And as a nonprofit, NGO, foundation, impact investor, or socially responsible company, your organization is on a mission to provide those solutions. But what exactly should you do? And how will you know whether it's working? Too many people assume that good intentions will result in meaningful actions and leave it at that. But thanks to Marc Epstein and Kristi Yuthas, social impact can now be evaluated with the same kind of precision achieved for any other organizational function. Based on years of research and analysis of field studies from around the globe, Epstein and Yuthas offer a five-step process that will help you gain clarity about the impacts that matter most to you and will provide you with methods to measure and improve those impacts. They offer a systematic approach to deciding what resources you should invest, what problem you should address, and which activities and organizations you should support. Once you've made those decisions, they provide tools, frameworks, and metrics for defining exactly what success looks like, even for goals like reducing global warming or poverty that are extremely difficult to measure. Then they show you how to use the data you've gathered to further develop and increase your social impact. Epstein and Yuthas personally interviewed leaders at over sixty different organizations for this book and include examples from nearly a hundred more. This is unquestionably the most complete, practical, and thoroughly researched guide to taking a rigorous, data-driven approach to expanding the good you do in the world"--

Performance measurement and management control : innovative concepts and practices by Workshop on Performance Measurement and Management Control( Book )

15 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2001, we gathered a group of researchers in Nice, France to focus discussion on performance measurement and management control. Following the success of that conference, we held subsequent conferences in 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2009. This volume contains some of the exemplary papers that were presented at the most recent conference. Though the conference has been generally focused on performance measurement and management control and has included presentations on many facets of the topic, each year we have also focused on a particular theme of current interest. This year's theme was directed at innovative concepts and practices. This includes creative approaches to solving management challenges of performance and management control and improving organizational performance. It also includes the innovative use of empirical, analytical, experimental, and case based research. The contents of this book represent a collection of leading research in management control and performance measurement and provide a significant contribution to the growing literature in the area

This new volume contains selected papers that were presented at the 2013 conference on performance measurement and management control focusing on behavioral implications and human actions associated with the use of performance measurement and management control systems.
