The boundaryless career : a new employment principle for a new organizational era by Michael B Arthur( Book )

25 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Boundaryless Career provides a conceptual map of new career and employment forms to the prospective benefit of people making career choices, companies re-crafting human resource practices, schools and universities re-considering their roles, and policy-makers concerned with regional or national competitiveness. It will be essential reading for scholars in a range of social science disciplines spanning themes of economics, management, education, organizational behavior, and the psychology and sociology of work. It will also appeal broadly to free thinkers interested in the changing nature of careers and employment as both people and firms tackle the realities of increasingly open markets and global competition
An intelligent career : taking ownership of your work and your life by Michael B Arthur( Book )

16 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A playbook for the modern knowledge worker, providing a complete guide that will allow workers to take a composite, dynamic view of a life's work in the 21st century. Knowledge work - the kind of work where one thinks for a living - is fundamental in today's economy. It is the basis for long-term success in the global economy and it drives the collective brainpower through which goods and services are delivered. And today, knowledge work requires much more than a college degree: it means understanding the changing nature of work and employment, and the processes through which knowledge is generated, transferred, and applied. It means understanding new career possibilities, more dynamic work arrangements, and the growing demand for knowledge work around the globe. It means navigating work life with an authenticity that replaces any straightforward loyalty to a single employer, and instead calls for better understanding of the self, collaborators, clients, and customers. Provides clear guidance on how to take charge of your own destiny, seek continuous learning, collaborate with others, recognize and act on fresh opportunities, determine when it is time to move on, and much more. Ultimately, the goal of this book is to help knowledge workers from architects to lawyers learn to work on their own terms and to assume ownership of work and career

11 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on the processes through which knowledge is created, accumulated, and put to use in the knowledge-driven global economy. Its unique perspective stems from its "knowledge diamond" framework to examine how individuals, communities, organizations, and host industries reciprocally influence each other in the course of knowledge work. Case examples are selected to appeal to an international audience."--Jacket

CAREER DYNAMICS IN A GLOBAL WORLD : indian and western perspectives by Anneleen Forrier( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Career Dynamics in a Global World takes on a major question in the global research and practice of career development and adopts a distinctive approach in response. The authors address the question of how and to what extent a predominant influence of Western thinking about careers interferes with our understanding of careers in other parts of the world. The approach involves identifying career topics for further exploration, recruiting teams of Indian and Westerns scholars on each topic to share their insights, and laying out those insights to help both careers researchers and practitioners see their significance. As a result, in this remarkable collaboration the reader is invited to compare views on self- awareness and careers from traditional Indian Ayurvedic and alternative Western perspectives, alongside contrasting Indian and Western reports on women stepping off their career ladders, the motivation of social entrepreneurs, the careers of IT workers, MBA holders and management scholars and other topics. Career and cross-cultural researchers and career and HR practitioners will be fascinated by the comparative analysis of career dynamics"--

The New Careers by Michael B Arthur( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

To career used to mean to swerve wildly or to go swiftly. In this beautifully argued, richly documented, original, liberating work, Arthur, Inksen, and Pringle demonstrate that the new careers once more are about swift swerves, unexpected agency, and enacted opportunities and constraints. Readers will think about the future in ways they never imagined possible. This is a good book. People need to get it in their hands to see how good it is'- Karl Weick, University of Michigan. The New Careers offers a major new approach to the concept of career and the relation of the individual to the contemporary workplace. It shows that our traditional conceptions of careers are rooted in the stable conditions of the Industrial State model which has dominated the Twentieth century and that new models, better attuned to the New Economy of the later Twentieth and early Twenty-first centuries are now needed. The book points to careers as actions rather than structures, as a means of learning rather than means of earning, and as boundaryless entities rather than constrained ones. It also points to the return of the career as a key concept in social analysis, but shows that in the light of new phenomena, the career' as we traditionally know it will never be the same again. This innovative and accessible book is based on work for which Michael Arthur, Kerr Inkson and Judith Pringle won the Academy of Management prize for best section paper, which forms the core of this book
