Globalization and change in Asia( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Globalization and Change in Asia explores three decades of adjustment on the part of governments, civil society, and the private sector to the complex new forces of international competition. Recognizing that the benefits of globalization have not accrued equally to all Asian countries, or to all stratums of society, the authors seek lessons that can help shape development policy to effect the greatest good. Thus, they focus on the essential ingredients of the most broadly successful globalization strategies - strategies that can most optimally respond to the economic, social, and technological challenges that lay ahead."--Jacket
Planning education reforms in developing countries : the contingency approach by Dennis A Rondinelli( Book )

9 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on education improvement programs in developing countries, this book offers a set of guidelines for applying contingency theory in planning such projects and for selecting appropriate management strategies to implement them. The success of people-centered development programs depends on planners' ability to tailor services to different groups' particular needs and changing people's behavior so that they may more effectively help themselves. The first chapter reviews experience with education improvement plans funded by international assistance organizations such as the World Bank, identifies education innovation characteristics, and traces their implications for selecting project management strategies. Chapter 2 reviews contingency theory, and chapter 3 describes an operational framework for using it to analyze the management requirements of a project and the management capacity of implementing agencies. The next four chapters thoroughly discuss the main elements of contingency analysis, including the environment, task innovation, cultural values, management structures, and organizational structures. The final chapter shows how planners can use the results of these analyses to develop management capacity in organizations that will carry out educational reforms and to modify project and program designs to increase the chances for success.

Beyond reconstruction in Afghanistan : lessons from development experience by John D Montgomery( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The interaction of failed states, terrorism and the need for "nation building" is at the top of the international agenda, with particular focus on Afghanistan and Iraq. This path breaking collection brings together top analysts to examine the goals and challenges facing efforts to reconstruct states that have collapsed into anarchy or have been defeated in war, drawing lessons from 50 years of past experience with post-conflict reconstruction and development around the world to assess development plans in a country devastated by more than a century of conflict. While the focus is on Afghanistan, important comparisons-including to reconstruction after the American Civil War-provide historical context and lessons of difficulties to overcome and realistic limitations of ambitions. Throughout, particular attention is paid to the interaction of the goals of external and domestic actors, highlighting the importance of understanding the internal social, economic, and political environment of the society receiving assistance

Privatization and economic reform in Central Europe : the changing business climate( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The process of economic restructuring is especially important and particularly complex in Central Europe, where Poland, Hungary, the Czech and Slovak Republics, Slovenia, and other independent states of former Yugoslavia are struggling to transform themselves from socialist to market economies. Each country faces equally complex challenges, however, in creating a new business climate that will nourish domestic enterprise and attract investments by multinational corporations. These challenges include: (1) privatizing state-owned enterprises that have dominated the economies of socialist countries; (2) developing public policies and programs that support the private sector, especially small- and medium-scale enterprises; (3) decentralizing the state administrative structure to allow regional and local governments to play a more active role in providing public services and supporting private enterprise; and (4) restructuring industry, agriculture, and services in order to diversify and reinvigorate the economic base (including infrastructure) of regions surrounding cities that are still dominated by heavy (and now largely obsolescent) manufacturing industries
