Fit, failure, and the hall of fame : how companies succeed or fail by Raymond E Miles( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Managers often become frustrated when, after making Herculean efforts to launch a better product, create a superior structure, or improve processes, success remains a distant and elusive goal. But genuine success does not come from any single action - or any random group of actions - caution Raymond Miles and Charles Snow in this incisive analysis of success and failure. Instead, they argue, success is achieved when the strategy structure, and processes of a company "fit" together: operations then run smoothly inside and out, more is done with less, and customers are satisfied. Companies that go a step further to create exceptionally innovative strategy-structure-process packages - for example, Carnegie Steel was the first to create a vertically integrated, centralized management structure within the steel industry - often develop a record of accomplishments and reputation considerable enough to propel them into a mythical corporate Hall of Fame. Based on studies of dozens of companies to which they have applied this concept of "fit," the authors explain how success and failure can be predicted. Examining the causes of success and failure historically they describe how such companies as General Motors and Sears, Roebuck - both Hall of Fame candidates - earned their legendary status by pioneering new forms of organization to fit the strategy-structure-process combination demanded by the marketplace at the time. Miles and Snow relate historic successes to current successes, explaining how even the most thriving companies of today - including Wal-Mart, Rubbermaid, and General Electric - could lose their way and become "misfit" companies. They describe in detail the path to misfit and what pitfalls to avoid to stay on the right track. Looking to the future, the authors examine new shapes organizations will take, including various types of "networks" and a promising new form that they call the "spherical" organization. Finally, Miles and Snow detail the key to long-term corporate health: dynamic fit. Dynamic fit allows managers to ensure flexibility and ongoing adaptation to the marketplace. Without it, the authors warn, success is fragile. With it, companies can develop their own recipe for success that works consistently no matter what corporate climate the future holds

And each of the strategies is brought alive with examples of real companies. Executives, managers, and advanced students will find this book incisive and practical
Collaborative Communities of Firms : Purpose, Process, and Design by Anne Bøllingtoft( )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faced with the ever-accelerating pace of technological change and the restructuring of markets, many firms have been questioning the appropriateness of their own organizational structure and effectiveness. Consequently, we have witnessed much organizational experimentation and the development of new forms of organizing over the last decade. Firms are more dependent than ever on the need for continuous and radical innovations - and often innovations that go beyond their existing businesses. This challenges firms in terms of knowledge and idea sharing, and often necessitates the need to expand b

Survival in emergency escape from passenger aircraft by Clyde C Snow( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The human factors data from three aircraft accidents involving emergency evacuations are reviewed. Of the 261 passengers aboard, 105 died in attempts to escape during the 1- to 3-minutes prior to the build-up of a lethal thermotoxic environment within the cabin. In all three accidents, decelerative forces were mild and cabin destruction and impact injuries minimal. The three most prominent factors influencing survival were found to be: distance between the occupant's seat and the exit he attempts to use; sex, with adult males having a strong advantage; among adult males, age, with younger males the more frequent survivors. Age and sex are also significant factors in determining frequency and severity of injuries among survivors. Comparison of the accident evacutions with test evacutions indicate that, in the latter, the biobehavioral factors disadvantageous to elderly males and adult females are not present. (Author)
Anthropometry of airline stewardesses by Clyde C Snow( Book )

It includes the means, standard deviations, coefficients of variation, percentiles, and related statistics of 60 standard anthropometric and functional measurements. The survey was initiated to provide adequate criteria for improving the workspace design for the air traffic controller and to provide anthropometric baseline data for future biometric and aging studies of Air Traffic Service personnel
New approaches to organization design : theory and practice of adaptive enterprises by Anne Bøllingtoft( )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Organization design (OD) is a key feature of management theory and practice. It addresses the challenges of constructing and maintaining effective organizations. Essential to its application is the assumption that it can improve organizations and their performance. Faced with the ever-accelerating pace of technological change and the restructuring of markets, many firms have questioned their own organizational structures and processes. Consequently, we have witnessed much organizational experimentation and the development of new forms of organizing over the last decade. How does organization design inform such experimentation? And how can organization design help managers gain insights and advance the current understanding of how organizations can meet environmental challenges and constraints in the future? This book is the third volume to emerge from a series of workshops on organization design, featuring new empirical research and theoretical insights. The chapters are organized around three central themes: (1) Towards New Organizational Forms; (2) Dynamics of Adaption and Change; and (3) Fit and Performance. The chapters cover such timely issues as organizational networks, virtuality, learning, dynamic capabilities, and adaptation. Common to all contributions is a focus on the core theories of OD and emerging perspectives. Collectively, the chapters reflect the state of the art of OD and provide a further step toward the evolution of this important field of research

Experimental comparison of trauma in lateral (+Gy), rearward-facing (+Gx), and forward-facing ( -Gx) body orientations when restrained by lap belt only by Richard G Snyder( Book )

2 editions published between 1967 and 1969 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study, 24 anesthetized Savannah Baboons (Papio cynocephalus) restrained with a lap belt were subjected to a controlled series of lateral impacts at entrance velocities ranging from 36.4 ft./sec. (15g.) to 88.2 ft./ sec. (44g.) 1,200 g./sec. to 5,900 g./sec. rate of onset, for total durations of 0.076 to .100 second. Sixteen lateral tests were run with four forward-facing and four rearward-facing controls. Gross and microscopic autopsies were performed. Pathology was found to be significantly higher in lateral impact. Ruptured bladders and uteri, adrenal hemorrhage, and subdural and epidural hemorrhage occurred frequently. A major finding, with unexplained etiology, was marked pancreatic hemorrhage most typical of the lateral impact. Under these test conditions, both survival and injury tolerance levels were found to be lower in the lateral body orientation, indicating lap belt restraint alone does not provide adequate body protection
