Hearing the voice of the market : competitive advantage through creative use of market information by Vincent P Barabba( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 1998 in English and held by 890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hearing the Voice of the Market provides a detailed plan that enables managers throughout the organization to make more frequent & better use of market information. The book shows managers how to develop the two capabilities that distinguish the successful, market-oriented firm--competent curiosity, & competent knowledge use. The two are closely linked: inadequate information cannot be used well, & sound information is wasted if it is utilized poorly. Includes experiences & insights of the many managers & researchers cited in the text. Readers will learn how to create an environment in which managers are inquisitive about their markets, are able to satisfy their curiosity with real market information, & can make knowledge-based decisions that lead to success. This book provides guidance on how managers may make better use of market information. It argues that market research on its own is not enough, and that an intelligent system of interpreting and using market research information is required

Die Harvard University Graduate School of Business wurde im Jahr 1908 gegriindet und feierte im akademischen Jahr 1983-84 ihren 75. Geburtstag. Wir beschlossen, diese Gele genheit zu ergreifen, urn den Lehrkorper der Fakultiit zu veranlassen, sich weitreichende Gedanken tiber die Herausforderungen und Moglichkeiten der Zukunft zu machen, die wichtige Disziplinen in Forschung und Lehre des Bereichs UntemehmensfUhrung bestim men werden. Die empirische Forschung auf der Basis von Feldstudien, und zwar sowohl innerbetrieb lich als auch betriebstibergreifend, war schon immer die Grundlage daffu, daB die Harvard Business School ihr Ziel, Ftihrungskrafte auszubilden und die Managementpraxis verbes sem zu helfen, erreichen konnte. In mancher Hinsicht kreieren wir sogar unverwechselba re Forschungsmodelle. Oft haben wir die Grenzen traditioneller Forschungsbereiche und Methoden durchbrochen, urn der "Werkzeuge" und Konzeptionen habhaft werden zu kon nen, die wir fUr eine bestimmte Untersuchung benotigten. Dariiber hinaus haben wir uns schon immer weniger mit der Analyse existierender Theorien, als vielmehr mit der Erar beitung neuer Erkenntnisse beschaftigt. Und wenn wir uns auch oft zu Problemen hinge zogen fUhlen, die sehr breitgefachert angelegt sind, so bemtihen wir uns doch immer urn Ergebnisse, die ftir die Tatigkeit des Managers von praktischer Bedeutung sind. Da die Mitglieder des Lehrkorpers der Harvard Business School ihre Verpflichtung darin sehen, sich im Rahmen ihrer Forschungsarbeit mit der Frage auseinanderzusetzen, wie ein Betrieb tatsiichlich funktioniert, und theoretische Erwagungen dartiber anzustellen, wie er unter Umstanden funktionieren soUte, konnen sie dem Studenten und dem Mana ger wichtige Einsichten tiber die betriebliche Praxis vermitteln

Surviving transformation : lessons from GM's surprising turnaround by Vincent P Barabba( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How did a major corporation manage to turn itself around while Wall Street and others continued to predict its slow death? The answer may surprise you, and it provides a model for corporate transformation for any company or government agency operating in a world of accelerating change. The company is General Motors, and this book tells how it was able to change the way important decisions were made, leading to resurgence in business across its many product lines. At the beginning of the 1990s, GM was perceived by nearly everyone as falling behind its competitors at an alarming rate. By the beginning of the twenty-first century, though, the company had come storming back with successful new automobiles and new business concepts that captured new markets, while simultaneously holding on to many of its existing customers. What GM did is not just the story of a single automaker, but rather a compelling insight into an approach for any business organization that is faced with the need for a true transformation. As many companies have discovered, efforts at transformation too often fail. GM's successful transformation illustrates the importance of management's ability to change its mindset and make the tough decisions that revitalize business with bold new products and business concepts. At the heart of successful transformation is the imagination, courage and leadership required to visualize the kind of company an organization wants to become and then work toward that goal. With the destination set and understood by those who will need to implement the changes, decision-makers find it less difficult to overcome impediments to achieving their goal while finding creative ways of doing what may seem impossible. The lessons from GMs turnaround can help any business organization change and keep pace with today's turbulent marketplace."--Publisher's description

Business strategies for a messy world : tools for systemic problem-solving by Vincent P Barabba( Book )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The need to examine and challenge a host of critical, taken-for-granted assumptions is one of the most important tasks facing managers and leaders daily. Beyond recognizing the need to examine and challenge key assumptions, managers and leaders must develop a systematic way of surfacing and critiquing important assumptions, let alone keeping track of them over time so that key business strategies can change as important underlying assumptions change. Using current business examples and academic research, Tools for Systematic Problem-Solving educates managers and executives on how to systematically examine key assumptions to ensure survival and success for their organizations"

Problems in Using Census Data by Vincent P Barabba( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The activities and services of the Bureau of the Census of greatest interest to users are given in this paper. Fees paid to the bureau for services nearly amount to the budget requested from Congress. At the bureau the Data User Service Office is most concerned with user needs and constantly seeks to upgrade the materials produced and to facilitate communication with users. Surveys of census utilization are planned, and it is suggested that the English model of a permanent committee of librarians and statisticians be adopted. The 1980 census data will contain more microform and better indexing. (Wh)
