Success and failure of microbusiness owners in Africa : a psychological approach by Michael Frese( )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only if they do the right thing at the right time will owners of small businesses succeed. Simple enough, but what are the factors in their psychological makeup that enable them to do it? Frese and his contributors have studied small businesses in four African countries from a psychological perspective-the first time this has been done-and report that it's the psychological aspects of their strategies, not just the strategies themselves, that contribute significantly to their success. They also prove that many of the stereotypes that seem to characterize the owners of microbusinesses are clearly incorrect. Executives, analysts, bankers, international entrepreneurs, and their academic colleagues will discover that many of the conclusions they have drawn from previous studies can not be generalized. Only by separating those that can be generalized from those that can not, can we get a true understanding of the small business entrepreneurial dynamic.''Frese and his colleagues focus on South Africa, Zimbabwe, Uganda, and Zambia to produce a clear overview of the research on microbusiness and entrepreneurship in developing countries. They find that psychological strategies are closely related to entrepreneurial success, but because conditions in these countries differ widely, the particulars of certain strategies and their effectiveness may also differ. They show that a number of ideas prevalent among professionals and entrepreneurship researchers in developing countries need to be challenged. Among them, that microenterprise owners who started their companies because they were unemployed do worse than those who started for other, more positive reasons. Also, that human capital (education) represents the most important set of variables to be considered for success (it isn't), or that employing family members decreases success (it doesn't). Well written and impeccably researched, the book is an essential contribution to corporate and academic libraries, as well as to the knowledge of individuals in business, psychology, entrepreneurial and regional studies, and related fields
Errors in organizations by David A Hofmann( )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is dedicated to creating a single source that both summarizes what we know regarding errors in organizations and provide a focused effort toward identifying future directions for research. The goal is to provide a forum for researchers who have conducted a considerable amount of research in the error domain to discuss how to extend this research, and provide researchers who have not considered the implications of errors for their domain of organizational research an outlet to do so"--
The psychology of entrepreneurship by J. Robert Baum( Book )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite 40 years of entrepreneurship research, little has been learned about the personal characteristics of entrepreneurship. Recently, a cohort of psychology-based researchers began to search for individual differences that cause entrepreneurship. The researchers have successfully begun to uncover competencies, cognitions, and behaviors that impact new venture creation and success. The fresh entrepreneurship psychology research included here presents opportunities for a new generation of psychology-based entrepreneurship researchers." "The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, a volume in the SIOP Organizational Frontiers Series, is the first book written about the psychology of entrepreneurship. It includes more than 60 research questions to guide industrial organizational psychology researchers, organizational behavior researchers, and entrepreneurship researchers about entrepreneurs." "This book will appeal to teachers, students, and researchers in the areas of industrial organizational psychology, organizational behavior, entrepreneurship, and management. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

Ein Ansatz zur Benutzerqualifizierung liegt darin, dem Benutzer ein moglichst breites Unterstiitzungsspektrum innerhalb von Anwendungssoftware zur Verfiigung zu stellen. Hierzu wurde ein generisches Modell erarbeitet, mit dem versucht wird, zwei zentrale Probleme zu losen: Die Integration einer weitestgehenden Benutzerunterstiitzung von der klassischen Hilfe bis hin zum Anbieten interaktiver kontext-sensitiver Lemeinheiten, direkt und unteilbar verbunden mit der Applikation und die Moglichkeit, Software auf unterschiedliche Arbeitsprozesse abzustimmen. Dies bedeutet, daB aus dem Spektrum der Gesamtfunktionalitat jeweils nur ein dem Arbeitsprozess zugeordneter Ausschnitt an Funktionalitat dem Benutzer zur Verfiigung gestellt wird. 5 Literatur Chin D N (1989) KNOME: Modeling What the User Knows in UC.

Toward a psychology of entrepreneurship : an action theory perspective by Michael Frese( )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This contribution discusses a theory of entrepreneurship, its empirical base, and its implications. First, it argues that a psychological approach is necessary to understand entrepreneurship. Second, it argues that any theory of entrepreneurship should use active actions as a starting point -- entrepreneurship is the epitome of an active agent in the market (rather than a reactive agent). Third, it discusses an action regulation theory to better understand the psychology of entrepreneurship. Fourth, it provides examples how this theory can help to understand entrepreneurial success. Finally, I suggest intervention programs to help entrepreneurs to be successful at growing their organizations

Iniciativa personal : cómo hacer que las cosas sucedan by Ana Lisbona( )

5 editions published in 2012 in Spanish and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Las personas somos activas por naturaleza y la aplicación de esta actividad es lo que podemos llamar iniciativa personal o, lo que es lo mismo, hacer que las cosas sucedan. La iniciativa personal en el trabajo tiene un gran valor y se suele traducir en conductas autoiniciadas, proactivas y persistentes a la hora de superar las barreras o dificultades que aparecen a lo largo de la consecución de un objetivo. En esta obra se muestra con detalle qué es la iniciativa personal, qué aspectos individuales, grupales y organizacionales están relacionados con ella, y también cuáles de estos aspectos contribuyen a desarrollarla. Sus consecuencias suelen ser un mayor rendimiento, la disminución del tiempo de desempleo, la mejora en la empleabilidad y, ante todo, un gran bienestar personal"--Page 4 of cover
