Creating management processes built for change : good management processes help a company execute its strategy and exercise its capabilities : but in fast-changing business environments, companies also need agile management processes that can help the organization change when needed by Christopher G Worley( )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The word "agility" has entered the business lexicon like few other terms in recent memory. Yet according to the authors, the core concept is misunderstood. An essential feature is repeatability, which requires management processes that can support adaptability over time. The authors studied data from the largest public global companies in 22 industries between 1980 and 2012 and surveyed more than 50 companies in an effort to understand the factors that explained sustained levels of high performance. The authors concluded that organizational agility required routines in four areas: strategizing, perceiving, testing, and implementing. Routines and capabilities, the authors note, allow organizations to perform key activities reliably and repeatedly. Management processes -- the fundamentals of planning, organizing, controlling, and motivating -- operationalize the routines and capabilities. To support agility, management processes need to be designed well, and some processes must be designed for change. While the authors found that good management processes were a prerequisite for agility, good processes were no guarantee for success. Sustaining high performance was a function of whether certain processes were flexible and fast. They illustrate their argument using two companies from their research: the Brioche Pasquier Group, a multinational bakery headquartered in Les Cerqueux, France, and Netflix Inc., which is based in Los Gatos, California, and streams digital content to more than 80 million customers in more than 190 countries. Both companies demonstrated an ability to operate effectively without being tied to a rigid set of steps. At Brioche Pasquier Group, for example, twice a year individuals and teams identify objectives and actions related to their work that they think can improve short-term performance or develop future capability, and they also review the previous plans. Brioche Pasquier Group uses this as an opportunity to distribute monetary bonuses (funded by savings or new value realized) to the individuals and teams whose actions contributed to the results. At Netflix, executives are committed to putting information into the hands of the people who do the work and making sure that the information flows up and down to everyone who needs it. "Flexibility requires having a clear understanding of what the management process is supposed to achieve, functional links to a portfolio of inputs, and the freedom to adapt the process as

Mastering the Market Intelligence Challenge by Murali Chari( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Multinational companies have invested heavily in emerging economies - over $3 trillion since 1998, by one estimate. Many of these companies, however, have not adapted their products and operations sufficiently to succeed in these markets, and returns have often been mediocre. Even when managers think they are performing well in emerging markets, they often are not because they have set low expectations. Adapting products and operations requires obtaining and using good market intelligence, which is difficult in emerging markets due to the paucity and unreliability of information. Another factor is the wide heterogeneity of emerging markets compared to developed markets. A third common problem is a lack of shared responsibility for market intelligence between headquarters and country managers, so market intelligence that is collected either is dismissed as not credible or is not updated often enough to keep pace with the rate of change in emerging markets. The authors argue that companies can overcome these difficulties by (1) treating market intelligence as a strategic asset; (2) organizing differently for market intelligence in emerging markets; and (3) using a wide range of sources and methods for market intelligence in emerging markets. They also recommend that market intelligence be organized as a shared responsibility between the corporate office and emerging-market business executives, with shared decision rights and shared resources. The article includes examples illustrating how companies such as Wrigley, Unilever, and Procter and Gamble obtain market intelligence in emerging markets

This ebook is purpose built and is proof-read and re-type set from the original to provide an outstanding experience of reflowing text for an ebook reader. An oft-forgotten number of British sailors, soldiers and merchantmen were taken prisoner during the long years of the Napoleonic Wars. Ranging from men such as Captain Moyle Sherer, who was captured in 1813, suffering less than a year of imprisonment, to Thomas Williams, who was captured only a year into the conflict. Thomas Williams was a sailor on a merchant ship and was captured after his ship lost its convoy en route to England. Williams left his memoir of his ten years in French captivity: ranging from mistreatment at the hands of his captors to his numerous escape attempts and the various characters he fell in with. A witty reminiscence on what was clearly a dark time for him, enlivened by a good sense of humor
