Reinventing management : smarter choices for getting work done by Julian Birkinshaw( )

39 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1,224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The economic crisis was not just caused by a failure of regulation or economic policy; it was a story of the failure of management in a fundamental sense--a deeply flawed approach to management that encouraged bankers to pursue opportunities without regard for their long-term consequences, and to put their own interests ahead of those of their employers and their shareholders. The revised edition of this best-selling book shows convincingly that many of today's major economic problems in the west can be traced to a failure of management. In this updated edition the author draws our attention to new examples of failed management, from Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, and the disaster at BP, to the ongoing problems in financial services companies such as UBS and RBS. Throughout the book the references and statistics have been updated, to make this a current, highly relevant analysis of the problems besetting modern business and how managers need to tackle them
Entrepreneurship in the global firm by Julian M Birkinshaw( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on fresh case evidence, the findings presented in Entrepreneurship in the Global Firm will have an impact on some of the key debates on the transfer of knowledge in firms, the resource-based view and the network forms of organization." "The author concentrates on the initiatives of subsidiary managers and then broadens out into an analysis of how subsidiary companies evolve over time, and how they are able to drive changes in the global firm as a whole. By taking the perspective of the subsidiary manager operating in a network, Birkinshaw extends the implications of his findings to all managers in organizations and challenges those who still view organizations as hierarchies." "The data and arguments presented here offer essential material to advanced undergraduate, MBA and postgraduate students of organizational forms, corporate strategy and the multinational enterprise."--Jacket
Fast/forward : make your company fit for the future by Julian Birkinshaw( )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The leading companies of the past twenty years have all harnessed the power of information to gain competitive advantage. But as access to big data becomes ubiquitous, it can no longer guarantee a leg up. Fast/Forward makes the case that we are entering a new era in which firms that understand the limits of 1s and 0s will take the lead. Whereas the industrial age saw the rise of bureaucracy, and the information age has been described as a meritocracy, we are witnessing the rise of adhocracy. In uncertain, rapidly-changing times, adhocracic organisations scan the horizon for winning opportunities. Then, instead of questing after more analysis, they respond with agility by making smart, intuitive decisions. Combining decisive action with emotional conviction, future-facing firms seize the day. Fast/Forward paints the big picture of a new approach to strategy and provides the necessary playbook to make your company fit for the future."--Provided by publisher

The flexible firm : capability management in network organizations( Book )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a detailed account of the network-like organizational forms that some firms are adopting to make themselves more flexible and responsive to changing technologies and customer demands. As these organizations become more pervasive, the winners will be those firms that develop the specific capabilities that are needed to thrive in a networked world. Paradoxically, such capabilities are developed not only at the firm level, but also in the relationships the firm has with its external network and in the operating units within the firm. This perspective has implications for the 'resource-based view of the firm' in the field of strategic management, suggesting that the development of capabilities is a more complex and multi-level process than was traditionally thought." "The book will be essential reading for advanced students in strategy and international business wanting to keep abreast of current thinking and company practices."--Jacket
