In their time : the greatest business leaders of the twentieth century by Anthony J Mayo( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 1,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this landmark book, Anthony J. Mayo and Nitin Nohria break new ground in our understanding of the requirements of truly great leadership. Illustrated through dozens of profiles of business visionaries, In Their Time reveals that outstanding leaders possess more than charismatic personalities and an appetite for risk. They have "contextual intelligence"--A profound ability to understand the spirit of the times and harness the opportunities it presents to create successful organizations. The book identifies three distinct paths that the best leaders forge to greatness - entrepreneurial innovation, savvy management, and transformational leadership - and explores the contextual factors that leaders must "read" correctly in order to succeed."--Jacket
Beyond the hype : rediscovering the essence of management by Robert G Eccles( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Managers today are being bombarded by business buzzwords and new approaches to management that are meant to make them "innovative," "cutting edge," or "excellent." Countless management gurus and consultants have come up with quick-fix advice intended to propel organizations into an anticipated New Age. Unfortunately, these magic solutions rarely deliver as much as they promise, and the pursuit of a holy grail of management is distracting us from the real job at hand. In Beyond the Hype, the authors, all from the Harvard Business School, look beyond the verbiage plaguing today's manager to discover the timeless aspects of effective managerial practice. Instead of focusing on panaceas for revitalizing companies, the authors concentrate on the very essence of what managers do: mobilize action in organizations. Rather than prescribe yet another managerial quick-fix, they offer a fresh way of thinking - an "action perspective"--That highlights the judgment of the individual manager in confronting the constant challenges of organizational life. Beginning with a discussion of how language serves to shape our perception of managerial reality, the authors move on to discuss the conditions for effective individual action and the role that individual and group identities play in today's workplace. They then weave these three themes into eye-popping reassessments of topics ranging from business strategy to the nature of organizational and societal change. Erudite and engaging, Beyond the Hype invites us to transform the way we think about both traditional managerial concepts and some of our most pressing contemporary concerns. Through it all, however, the ultimate lesson is this: that the responsibility lies with the individual manager. There are no magic frameworks, no silver bullets. For those willing to accept his responsibility, Beyond the Hype offers a wealth of insights that will liberate them from "new" ideas and allow them to focus on the real job of managing

Changing fortunes : remaking the industrial corporation by Nitin Nohria( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1973, Westinghouse and its longtime rival, General Electric, ranked among the strongest companies in the American economy. By the late 1990s, Westinghouse had disappeared from the economic landscape, whereas GE posted sales of $100 billion and employed nearly 300,000 people. Both companies faced common external challenges: energy crises, recessions, shareholder activism, the globalization of competition, the revolution in information technology, and the graying of the industrial economy. Their drastically different fates, however, were the results of the choices made in the face of these changes." "Based on a statistical profile of the one hundred largest industrial companies - the Fortune 100 - and complemented by detailed historical case studies of individual corporations, Changing Fortunes examines the struggles of the giant industrial enterprises that once dominated the economy to adapt to a new reality." "Changing Fortunes is essential reading not only for all leaders of industrial companies who need perspective on their immediate circumstances but also for leaders in nascent industries and service business who can expect, eventually, to encounter tough choices when confronted with the necessity to change."--Jacket

"The goal of MANAGEMENT: AN INTEGRATED APPROACH, 2nd Edition, is to prepare students for leadership positions in 21st century companies by addressing the many facets involved in answering one key question: How are leaders successfully managing competitive companies in the 21st century? Today's constantly changing business environment presents challenges and opportunities that are more dynamic and complex than ever before, requiring a clear understanding of the interactive nature of strategy, organizational design, and leadership. MANAGEMENT: AN INTEGRATED APPROACH, written by prominent Harvard management educators Ranjay Gulati, Anthony Mayo, and Nitin Nohria, is the only introductory management text on the market to address this challenge by taking an integrated and holistic approach to management, as opposed to a functional approach, making it more relevant to how today's organizations run. By demonstrating the interconnectivity among the three key pillars of management, students see how decisions impact strategic choices, organizational alignment, and leadership approaches, ultimately leading to the overall performance of the company. MindTap® for Gulati/Mayo/Nohria's MANAGEMENT: AN INTEGRATED APPROACH, has been completely revised and updated to incorporate a suite of new digital resources designed to facilitate and measure student success. This unique approach will develop a sustainable and successful leadership style, better preparing students for higher level courses and making them more marketable upon graduation." --Publisher
