Knowledge governance processes and perspectives by Nicolai J Foss ( )
13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While there are many books on knowledge management, knowledge governance is a concept that has not been so well explored, and is much less understood. Knowledge governance refers to choosing structures and mechanisms that can influence the processes of sharing and creating knowledge. The book argues that knowledge governance is a distinct issue in management and organization because knowledge processes differ on several dimensions from routine and more traditional processes. The relationship between governance issues and knowledge processes is under-researched, theoretically as well as empirically. Thematically, knowledge governance cuts across fields such as general management, human resource management, the management of intellectual capital, innovation theory, strategic management, technology strategy, and international business. Not surprisingly, existing ideas are developed from the perspectives of different fields and from different underlying disciplinary foundations; however, it often remains unclear how these ideas relate together and how they differ in terms of unit of analysis, mode of analysis, underlying logic and assumptions, etc. This book is an important step towards overcoming the existing fragmentation in the field by providing a multi-disciplinary collection of chapters on knowledge governance. While the single chapters accentuate the pluralism in the field, they all examine issues that constitute the essence of knowledge governance

Organizing entrepreneurial judgment : a new approach to the firm by Nicolai J Foss ( Book )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Entrepreneurship, long neglected by economists and management scholars, has made a dramatic comeback in the last two decades, not only among academic economists and management scholars, but also among policymakers, educators and practitioners. Likewise, the economic theory of the firm, building on Ronald Coase's (1937) seminal analysis, has become an increasingly important field in economics and management. Despite this resurgence, there is still little connection between the entrepreneurship literature and the literature on the firm, both in academia and in management practice. This book fills this gap by proposing and developing an entrepreneurial theory of the firm that focuses on the connections between entrepreneurship and management. Drawing on insights from Austrian economics, it describes entrepreneurship as judgmental decision made under uncertainty, showing how judgment is the driving force of the market economy and the key to understanding firm performance and organization"--
Towards a competence theory of the firm by Nicolai J Foss ( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book explores a new theory of the firm produced through an exchange between management theory and economics. In the process economics is seen to provide a foundational element for strategy research whilst developing a more realistic theory of the firm with a greater emphasis on its internal features. The success of competence theories of the firm also reflects their ability to explain significant trends in the business world, notably the declining importance of conglomerates and critical features in the success of Asian and Japanese business

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Innovating organization and management : new sources of competitive advantage by Nicolai J Foss ( Book )
17 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The search for competitive advantage serves as the basis for organizational strategy. This book argues that there are four key sources of competitive advantage and financial success that have not been given the attention they deserve. Firstly, that organizational design and management processes may be strategic resources in their own right. Secondly, that organizational design and management processes can be deployed to create new strategic resources. Thirdly, that managers have begun to think of organizational design and management processes in a proactive way rather than seeing them more passively as necessary facilitators of success. Fourthly, that this new way of looking at organization and management requires a search for new ways of structuring organizational design and managerial processes. These points are driven home through case studies of the Danish firms LEGO Group, Vestas Wind Systems, Coloplast, Chr. Hansen, IC Companys and NKT Flexibles"--
Knowledge, economic organization and property rights : selected papers by Nicolai J Foss ( Book )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nicolai Foss, the influential European management scholar, presents in this essential book sixteen of his most prominent papers. Written from a new institutional and Austrian economics perspective, this book focuses on the knowledge-based view of the firm, economic organization and property rights economics. The author critically examines notions of routines and capabilities and calls for the use of micro-foundations in management research. He illustrates the need for more emphasis to be placed upon managerial opportunism and other organizational costs, and highlights how concepts of property rights can inform strategic management. Accompanied by a lively and accessible introduction, this informative volume will invigorate strategic management, organization and international business students and scholars, as well as economists concerned with organization
