From grey to silver : managing the demographic change successfully by Michael Boppel( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demographic change is one of the most crucial issues of our time. This book sheds light on the demographic implications companies face. Based on an integrated framework, the book investigates three important perspectives: An economic and social perspective helps organisations and managers better understand the basic parameters of demographic change and its influences on the labour market. A human resources and leadership perspective reveals how age management can help retain employees of different age groups as motivated and productive workforce members. An innovation and marketing perspective examines how companies can exploit the potentials that senior customers offer. A combination of research-driven and practice-oriented chapters makes this book a profound and an interesting read. It primarily addresses executives from various organisational fields, including HR, marketing, and management. Professional trainers, scholars and students of economy and business will also gain valuable insights.

CEO Successions Corporate vs. Business Level CEO Origin : A Study of Organizational Antecedents by Lukas Germann( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Drawing on upper echelon and contingency theory, we examine for the first time antecedents of the new CEO's organizational level of origin. We argue that the directionality of change in product and international diversification affects the decision to recruit a new CEO with a distinct organizational level of origin. The results of a sample of S & P 500 firms over a five-year period reveal that enhanced total and unrelated product diversification are positively associated with the selection of a corporate executive, whereas enhanced international diversification, contrary to our supposition, is negatively associated with it. However, we find no support for our supplementary argument that appointing a corporate executive has a positive influence on postsuccession financial performance under the hypothesized circumstances. By distinguishing between corporate and business level executives in the context of CEO succession, we complied with prior research's request for taking into account the potential multidimensionality of the new CEO's origin and thus contribute to the existing literature on the antecedents of new CEO characteristics
A Comprehensive Analysis of Corporate Headquarters Characteristics by Manuel Züllig( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Accompanying the emergence of the M-form corporations and its triumphal procession in the 21st century, the attention on corporate headquarters has increased among scholars. The purpose of the thesis at hand is to provide a theoretical as well as an empirical foundation on the topic of corporate headquarters characteristics. Moreover, it is intended to make a contribution to close the research gap on understanding corporate headquarters and to provide guidelines for future research in this area. The underlying approach of the thesis follows a tripartite structure. First, an aggregated picture of the current state of management science about corporate headquarters characteristics is displayed. Afterwards, the thesis collects data of a sample that comprises 73 firms, on which a transparency analysis on the availability of information as well as a content analysis on different corporate headquarters designs are executed. The former is concluded by four different types of corporate headquarters embodiments that are derived from their degree of transparency aggregated from the emergence-based clusters: strategy, structure, and location. The latter identifies differences in corporate headquarters operating income and age between firms with single and those with multiple corporate headquarters locations
Analysis of Corporate Headquarters Characteristics in Large German Firms by Gavriʼel ben Ḥayim Miller( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Building on existing research on corporate headquarters, this study analyzes the charac-teristics of corporate headquarters and potential relationships between company and headquarter characteristics. A comprehensive framework is developed with the purpose of describing the corporate headquarters considering three different perspectives. Based on this framework, a Transparency Index is defined that allows to evaluate companies with regard to the reporting about their headquarter characteristics. A transparency as well as a content analysis are executed based on a sample of the 100 largest publicly traded German firms. The transparency analysis shows that the more specific and detailed the headquarter characteristics are, the less frequent they are reported. Company size measured by revenue is found to be positively correlated with the level of reporting transparency. Transparency is however not found to be significantly dependent on industry sector. Regarding content, results show that roles and activities performed at headquarters are in accordance with literature. It can also be observed that headquarter size varies widely among the companies considered whereas headquarter size does not depend on industry sector. A significant relationship between company performance and headquarter size cannot be confirmed. Considering potential symbolism of headquarters, a trend towards more symbolic new headquarters can be found. This work expands current research by providing a structured and comprehensive framework to describe the characteristics of corporate headquarters and by introducing a novel quantitative measure of transparency

Dimensions of Organizational Unlearning in the 21st Century a Review of the Organizational Unlearning Literature and Proposal of a Future Research Agenda by Jan Martin Jacobi( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper is a review of the relevant extant literature on organizational unlearning. The review offers a characterization of the research activity, an integrative framework structuring previous key research findings and also an aggregating review of weaknesses of previous research designs, research depth and potentially linkable research topics. This is done to broaden the variety of topics for future organizational unlearning research activity and enhance the quality of future research findings. The review concludes with a proposition of transforming the integrative framework on organizational unlearning into a managerial tool for the professional practice by future researchers refining different aspects of the theory bound in the integrative framework

Refining Perspectives on Procedural Justice in Organizations - A Systematic Literature Review and Directions for Future Research by Aron Wilken( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This review examines the prevailing literature on Procedural Justice (PJ) and synthesizes the findings in a conceptual framework. It proposes that, in addition to specific factors, four major clusters - supervisor & process characteristics, explanation & justification, voice, and outcomes - can be considered the causes of PJ. Similarly, the paper suggests that PJ results in six outcome clusters, described as trust, satisfaction, commitment, intentions, behavior, and performance. The importance of differentiating between subjective and objective justice, that are representing actual and perceived levels of procedural fairness, is further elaborated giving a central role to a phenomenon labeled pseudo justice. Moreover, the originator, the receiver, and the perceiver are introduced as the predominant roles involved in the two types of PJ. The US as a country, and educational settings in general, are identified as the predominant research contexts. Based on insights from the current literature, it is concluded that additional research is needed on a content level, on methodological advancements that improve the concept's validity, as well as on the progression of theoretical integration. Practical implications are discussed
