Built to change : how to achieve sustained organizational effectiveness by Edward E Lawler( )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 1,684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, organizational effectiveness experts Edward Lawler and Christopher Worley show how organizations can be "built to change" so they can last and succeed in today's global economy. Instead of striving to create a highly reliable Swiss watch that consistently produces the same behavior, they argue organizations need to be designed in ways that stimulate and facilitate change." "Built to Change focuses on identifying practices and designs that organizations can adopt so that they are able to change. Built to Change is filled with illustrative examples from companies - Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Limited Brands, and Toyota - that have been able to change time and again to meet changing business demands. The book outlines what it takes to become an organization that continuously and rapidly changes. It includes information about creating strategies, structures, reward systems, communication processes, and human resource management practices that are designed to facilitate the ability of an organization to change. Built to Change includes an online instructor's guide."--Jacket
Useful research : advancing theory and practice by Susan Albers Mohrman( )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For decades there has been an ongoing, at times heated, debate over how relevant to real-world organizational concerns academic organizational research should be. The contributors to this book argue that in order to keep organizational research relevant to both theory and practice, research must deviate from the orthodoxy of traditional positivistic research. The true test of whether knowledge is useful to practice is not whether it is “theoretically” impactful but whether it is theoretically impactful and results in improved organizational effectiveness. The contributing authors were selected for their demonstrated ability to conduct useful research and their distinguished academic careers. Part I of the book features active scholars who describe the choices they make and the tactics they employ to ensure that their work advances both theory and practice. In part II, four highly respected researchers reflect on how they approached their careers so that they could have a broad impact on practice and still maintain academic rigor. Part III describes pathways to bring academic knowledge to practice—working with consultancies, executive PhD programs, OD specialists, and professional associations, as well as framing academic concepts in ways that are attention-grabbing, memorable, and credible to practitioners. Part IV looks at institutional constraints and enablers: the prospects for useful research in traditional academic settings like business schools, peer-reviewed journals, and the Academy of Management. Finally, part V sums up the themes of the book and the challenges and opportunities facing researchers who aspire to do research that advances both theory and practice."--Publisher's website

Corporate boards : strategies for adding value at the top by Jay Alden Conger( )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Corporate Boards, the authors explore the roles that corporate governance will play in the twenty-first-century organization and identify the key practices that make a board effective. Questioning the long-held assumption that boards are solely responsible to shareholders, the authors propose that the focus of judging a board's success should move from a shareholder to a stakeholder point of view. The authors then go well beyond the issue of board accountability; they examine boards from a group and organizational effectiveness perspective and propose a framework that centers on what really influences effective governance behavior - information, knowledge, power, rewards, and opportunity."--Jacket
Motivation in work organizations by Edward E Lawler( Book )

34 editions published between 1973 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written with the student audience in mind, this book is about the motivational determinants of behavior in work organizations. For practicing managers, helpful information may be found in the chapters dealing with day-to-day motivational problems. Three chapters deal specifically with motivational theory, and five chapters emphasize research and practice in motivation, since the book is primarily directed to the undergraduate or graduate student. Four approaches to motivation are emphasized as styles of management practice: paternalistic approach, scientific management approach, participative management, and a fourth called the combination approach. The contents of the book are structured within the framework of the following chapters: motivation and behavior in work organizations; drives, needs, and outcomes; motivation and behavior; satisfaction and behavior; the decision to work in an organization; extrinsic rewards and job performance; job design and job performance; interpersonal influences; and an overview of motivation in organizations.

The ultimate advantage : creating the high-involvement organization by Edward E Lawler( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ultimate Advantage is an informed and detailed overview of how an organization must be designed to encourage innovation, increase cost-effectiveness, and deliver enhanced quality, customer service, and speed. Lawler demonstrates how to set up work teams, improvement groups, skill-based pay systems, and other practices that can create an environment where employees grow and the organization prospers. And throughout, Lawler emphasizes the need for interrelated, organizationwide implementation so that quality comes from within, rather than being added on or "inspected in" at a later stage
Global trends in human resource management : a twenty-year analysis by Edward E Lawler( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since 1995, USC's Center for Effective Organizations (CEO) has conducted the definitive longitudinal study of the human resource management function in organizations. By analyzing new data every three years since then, the Center has been able to consistently chart changes in how HR is organized and managed, while at the same time providing guidance on how professionals in the field can drive firm performance. Global Trends in Human Resource Management, the seventh report from CEO, provides the newest findings about what makes HR successful and how it can add value to organizations today. Edward E. Lawler III and John W. Boudreau conclude that HR is most powerful when it plays a strategic role, makes use of information technology, has tangible metrics and analytics, and integrates talent and business strategies. To adapt to the demands of a changing global marketplace, HR is increasingly required to span the boundaries between its function, the organization as a whole, and the dynamic environment within which it operates. This report tracks changes in a global sample of firms that shows how HR differs across Europe, the U.S., and Asia, providing an international benchmark against which to measure a company's practice and shows how HR can adapt in a rapidly changing landscape."--Publisher's website
Effective human resource management : a global analysis by Edward E Lawler( )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Effective Human Resource Management is the Center for Effective Organizations' (CEO) sixth report of a fifteen-year study of HR management in today's organizations. The only long-term analysis of its kind, this book compares the findings from CEO's earlier studies to new data collected in 2010. Edward E. Lawler III and John W. Boudreau measure how HR management is changing, paying particular attention to what creates a successful HR function--one that contributes to a strategic partnership and overall organizational effectiveness. Moreover, the book identifies best practices in areas such as the design of the HR organization and HR metrics. It clearly points out how the HR function can and should change to meet the future demands of a global and dynamic labor market. For the first time, the study features comparisons between U.S.-based firms and companies in China, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and other European countries. With this new analysis, organizations can measure their HR organization against a worldwide sample, assessing their positioning in the global marketplace, while creating an international standard for HR management."--Publisher's website
