Organizing entrepreneurial judgment : a new approach to the firm by Nicolai J Foss( )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and Polish and held by 942 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"--
The fortunes of liberalism : essays on Austrian economics and the ideal of freedom by Friedrich A. von Hayek( Book )

34 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hayek's well-known social and political philosophy - in particular his long-held pessimistic view of the prospects of socialism, irrefutably vindicated by the collapse of the Eastern bloc - is fully grounded in the Austrian approach to economics." "In this collection, Hayek traces his intellectual roots to the Austrian school, the century-old tradition founded at the University of Vienna by Carl Menger, and links it to the modern rebirth of classical liberal or libertarian thought." "Included in The Fortunes of Liberalism are two memoirs, "The Economics of the 1920s as Seen from Vienna," published here for the first time, and "The Rediscovery of Freedom: Personal Recollections," available for the first time in English." "One of our preeminent philosophers and social theorists, Hayek provides an invaluable education in a subject that is nothing less than the development ofthe modern world."--Jacket

14 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why managers still matter by Nicolai J Foss( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Industrial Revolution brought the decline of small-scale, cottage production and the rise of large, integrated businesses; Adam Smith's invisible hand was replaced with what business historian Alfred D. Chandler Jr., called the "visible hand" of management. But now that pendulum appears to be swinging the other way - to a system of loose networks, virtual businesses and peer-to-peer interactions. A supposed hallmark of the new economy has been the decline of managerial authority. Management gurus, consultants and pundits have proclaimed that hierarchy is out. Modern organizations such as online retailer Zappos have come to favor flat hierarchies with widely distributed authority. And yet, given the demands of the current environment, authors Nicholai J. Foss and Peter G. Klein argue that managerial authority is still essential in situations where (1) decisions are time-sensitive; (2) key knowledge is concentrated within the management team; and (3) there is need for internal coordination. Such conditions, they observe, are also hallmarks of our networked, knowledge-intensive and hypercompetitive economy. While it is true that many knowledge workers no longer need a boss to direct them to tasks or monitor their day-to-day progress, the authors contend that the role of managers and the definition of "authority" needs to change. Managers need to move away from specifying methods and processes in favor of defining the principles they want people to apply or the goals they want people to meet. In other words, the main task for top management is to define and implement the organizational rules of the game. To be sure, procedures for defining rules and frameworks can themselves be delegated and nested. Indeed, when a company's key assets are knowledge workers whose skills and behaviors are difficult to assess objectively, companies will need to increasingly rely on more subjective assessments of performance, which must be carried out by managers
Austrian perspectives on entrepreneurship, strategy, and organization by Nicolai J Foss( )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'Austrian' tradition is well-known for its definitive contributions to economics in the twentieth century. However, Austrian economics also offers an exciting research agenda outside the traditional boundaries of economics, especially in the management disciplines. This Element examines how Austrian ideas play a key role in expanding the understanding of fields like entrepreneurship, strategy, and organization. It focuses especially on the vital role that entrepreneurs play in guiding economic progress by shaping firms and their strategic behavior. In doing so, it explains a wide range of contributions that Austrian economics makes to the understanding of key problems in management, while also highlighting many directions for future work in this inspiring tradition

Conglomerate organization and economic performance : evidence from the 1960s by Peter G Klein( )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation reexamines the standard view of the performance of the 1960s conglomerates. Conventional wisdom regards these firms as inefficient, arising due to managerial hubris and weak capital-market discipline; efficiency was then restored in the 1980s with the breakups of large, diversified firms into smaller, more focused ones. This stylized fact is based, however, on studies of the long-term, postmerger performance of acquisitive firms, as well as estimates of the value added from later divestitures. Less is known about the actual performance of diversified firms during the 1960s
