Allen C. Amason, University of Georgia, USA

Leadership, adaptability, value creation. These are the skills necessary for tomorrow’s managers. Allen Amason approaches the topic of strategic management with these traits in mind. Rather than simply teaching theory and research, he seeks to communicate the fundamental keys to how strategy works. This book is designed to help students think critically and to understand fully how to strategically manage their future firms. In so doing, it will enable them to adapt and learn, even as their circumstances change; to apply sound logic and reasoning, even in new and unfamiliar settings. By conveying enduring and fundamental principles of economic and human behaviour rather than simply reporting on the latest innovations, this book succeeds in preparing students to excel in the business environment over time, regardless of how it evolves.

Return on Strategy How to Achieve it! Michael Moesgaard, Copenhagen School of Business, Denmark, Morten Froholdt and Flemming Poulfelt

Why is it that many companies meticulously following recipes on management and strategy fail? Did Google, Skype, Ryanair, Huawei and a number of other successful companies buy into a well thought out strategy and adhered to that over time? How do companies deliberately opting out of the recipe game and opting into the out-of-thebox-thinking fare? In short, why is it that some companies achieve a higher Return on Strategy than others? Whereas Return on Investment (RoI) has attracted increased attention over the last couple of decades, little, if any, attention is being paid to whether companies do at all achieve Return on Strategy (RoS) and how. This book provides an overview of contemporary strategy literature and recipes brushed up with a view to identifying explanations as to how recipes has seldom worked as intended. One out of several reasons rests on the fact that recipes do not take the so-called X-factor into account. With the X-factor as the starting point the book examines a sample of 50 global companies of which some have achieved a remarkable high Return on Strategy and others failed. The 50 companies covers most continents as some are from the North America, some are from the European continent and others are from different parts of the emerging Asian region – threatening companies from the Western hemisphere. The book explains the reason behind success and failures and provides practical tools as to how companies may increase their Return on Strategy. In the toolbox, you will find a framework on how to increase the RoS as well a number of dynamic positioning tools, road maps and bearing points. Invariably, more and more companies including consultants, business leaders and MBAs - now work diligently in order to increase their RoS and the best of them are here to stay successfully – are you? Selected Contents: 1. The X-factor Universe is Overlooked in Strategy! 2. The Recipe Game 3. The Strategy Landscape 4. The Strategy System or How To Combine Perspectives 5. What Triggers Strategy? 6. Exploiting Customer Attitudes 7. Leveraging the Financial Circuit 8. Revising the Product Portfolio 9. Optimizing the Organizational Design 10. Spinning the Technological Chain 11. Driving the Leadership Genes 12. Inroads to the Achievement of a Higher Return on Strategy. Appendix I: Zero SAC. Appendix II: Foremost Case Companies. Bibliography.

Creative Problem Solving for Managers Developing Skills for Decision Making and Innovation Tony Proctor, University of Chester, UK This refreshing new edition of Creative Problem Solving for Managers provides the most up-to-date and extensive introduction to the ideas and skills of solving problems creatively in the world of business and management. December 2009: 246 x 174: 352pp Hb: 978-0-415-55108-3: $170.00 Pb: 978-0-415-55110-6: $65.95 eBook: 978-0-203-85982-7

Jacques Kemp, Andreas Schotter, Thunderbird School of Global Management, USA and Morgen Witzel, University of Exeter, UK Spiralling financial globalization was followed by a dramatic global financial crisis. When the tide of cheap finance went out, it was clear that many corporations were stuck in the sands of complexity and were no longer fit for the purpose of value creation. Specifically, a lack of alignment between strategy, planning and execution is apparent in the business world which can harm the business further and destroy value - a real corporate crime. Management frameworks are tools which help to simplify and standardize management processes. By reducing complexity, they enable managers to see clearly what is going on around them. This enables task prioritization and better decision-making. Management frameworks help managers to be more efficient and more effective. Most importantly, they can be applied in any business, in any sector, anywhere – and to non-business and not-for-profit organizations too. This book describes what management frameworks are, how they work and how the MBA student can adapt them to their business needs. Management frameworks come in a variety of brands - from the ’balanced scorecard’ to an exciting new framework called ’towards performance excellence’ or TPE. Developed at ING, TPE offers a ‘total management’ solution. It provides a single, simple framework that embraces all parts of the business and ensures a complete flow of communication and ideas. It allows senior managers to monitor progress in every corner of their business, and to quickly detect problems and take corrective action. A key aim of the book is to help readers understand how frameworks function and what the features of different frameworks are, so that they are better able to choose what is right for them. In addition, the authors provide hands on tools and templates so that students can apply TPE frameworks to real life situations. This practical and insightful book will be required reading for executive education classes in strategic management and will find a ready audience with thinking managers everywhere.

International Management and International Relations

Management Research

A Critical Perspective from Latin America

Edited by Bill Lee, University of Sheffield, UK and Catherine Cassell, University of Manchester, UK

Edited by Ana Guedes and Alex Faria, both at Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration, Getulio Vargas Foundation Series: Routledge Studies in Management, Organizations and Society This edited collection shows that the field of International Management has been developed from a dominant perspective that overlooks governance issues ‘managed’ by transnational corporations and also the interests, voices and ‘managerial’ practices of other agents, such as international organizations, transnational institutions, non-governmental organizations, governments and communities in Latin America. Over the last few decades, the field of management enlarged its boundaries, especially in international terms, in a very rapid fashion—mainly because of the arrival of the so-called era of globalization. Many renowned scholars have criticized the universal approach given to ‘management’ in the United States and its subsequent automatic conversion into ‘international management,’ but their arguments too can fall into the trap of universalism at times. This book has a more specific concern: to challenge the conversion of ‘management’ into ‘international management’ from a Latin American perspective. This challenge might be taken as a first step toward the construction of a Latin American perspective in International Management and a potential contribution to the development of this field in other parts of the world. Drawing upon such a critical standpoint, several authors in the book converge upon the idea that researchers, practitioners and authorities in Latin America should challenge the US dominance in International Management and foster interdisciplinary developments within International Relations. The critical perspective provided in this book challenges the US’s narrow viewpoint on management as it clearly does not fit the governance features of ‘international management’ in Latin America. So far, we have not observed the constitution of sub-areas such as international management of international organizations, international management of transnational institutions, international management of public-private networks, international management of public companies, and international public administration or international public management, all of which would be extremely important in Latin America.

The Geometry of Strategy

2nd Edition

New

Concepts for Strategic Management

Managerial Economics

Robert W. Keidel, Drexel University, USA

A Strategic Approach

To excel in today’s exacting world, organizations need to combine strategic planning and strategic thinking. Strategic planning is a formal activity carried out periodically by top managers, but it is vulnerable to change. Strategic thinking is an informal activity that occurs intermittently throughout an organization, but it tends to be non-cumulative.

Robert Waschik, La Trobe University, Australia, Tim Fisher, University of Sydney, Australia and David Prentice, La Trobe University, Australia

Valuation of Regulating Services of Ecosystems

Keidel offers a framework for integrating strategic planning and strategic thinking that leverages the strengths of both. The key to his work is the application of simple geometric forms—especially, 2x2 grids and triangles—that help organizational leaders and strategists structure their thinking and planning. Keidel introduces four strategic categories—persona (organizational identity), performance (what is measured), puzzle (dilemmas that are faced), and pattern (how to compete, grow, & organize). Each category matches a specific geometry of thinking— point, linear, angular, and triangular. The payoff? A novel way to develop strategy, as well as a set of conceptual lenses for ’reading’ any other organization’s strategy—or any strategic argument. Keidel’s work is illustrated with case studies from his own consulting practice and grounded in the theoretical literature underlying the various geometries of thinking. This book will be a valuable resource for managerial and executive education in strategy, as well as a provocative reading for organizational strategy consultants and thoughtful practitioners.

Climate Change and the Private Sector Managing Climate Risks and Financing Carbon Neutral Energy Infrastructure

Traditional microeconomic theory has much to offer a manager. It suggests ways to increase profits by setting prices and packaging services, using advertising to increase demand and shows how internet auction sites like eBay affect competition and profitability. By using game theory to present and solve a manager’s decision-making problems and by focusing on the strategic nature of these problems, this text makes microeconomic theory much more intuitive and relevant for the business student. The text is separated into four sections: • basic microeconomic theory of the firm and the basic tools of game theory • problems related to the strategic interaction between firms, including price and quantity competition and product differentiation • issues arising from strategic interactions within the firm, including vertical and horizontal integration, training and motivating workers, and labour unions • marketing economics including information problems, advertising, durable goods and the product life cycle. This book will be suitable for any student with a background of introductory economics. The authors include a variety of international examples and case studies from the business world to expand and illustrate key concepts, and provide end-of-chapter exercises to test students’ grasp of the material. An online supplement comprising of problems and solutions as well as PowerPoint slides is available for lecturers.

International Business and Tourism Global Issues, Contemporary Interactions Edited by Tim Coles, University of Exeter, UK and C. Michael Hall, University of Canterbury, New Zealand Series: Routledge International Series in Tourism, Business and Management Whether it’s bungee jumping in Queenstown or visiting the Guinness factory in Dublin, where we travel – and what we do when we get there - has changed significantly in the past twenty years. This innovative textbook explores what is possibly the most unrecognized of international service industries, placing tourism in the context of contemporary globalization and trade-in services. It provides new perspectives on tourism as a form of international business, and the implications for firms, the state and individuals. Split into four separate sections, with introductions outlining the key themes in each, it examines important topics such as: • the role of governance and regulation in tourism services • the effects of increased global mobility on tourism entrepreneurship • how tourism businesses are becoming internationalized • why other business sectors are increasingly interested in tourism. Case studies are used throughout to highlight important issues, from developments in the aviation industry to the rise of working holidays. This book gets to the core of a crucial service industry, and is essential reading for any researcher or student of tourism or international business. 2008: 246 x 174: 304pp Hb: 978-0-415-42430-1: $175.00 Pb: 978-0-415-42431-8: $52.95 eBook: 978-0-203-93103-5 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415424318

Carbon Management in Tourism is the first book devoted to tourism and carbon emission reduction conflict and importantly to showcase a wide range of practical mitigation measures that help to achieve a lower carbon tourism future. The book provides a comprehensive overview by combining theory and practice of climate change mitigation in global tourism, addressing various levels of scale, such as global, national, and regional tourism systems, as well as individual tourism businesses. It integrates a thorough scientific discussion of the causes of emissions growth, along with an analysis of the major options to reduce emissions, and state-of-the-art carbon management practices to provide a better understanding of relationship between climate change and tourism and management of GHG’s. To visualize the potential of emission reductions in this sector, detailed case study examples of tourism businesses or destinations that have successfully reduced emissions of greenhouse gasses, considering economic and socio-cultural issues are integrated throughout.

International Business

Alleviating Poverty Through Profitable Partnerships Globalization, Markets, and Economic Well-Being

Themes and Issues in the Modern Global Economy

Patricia H. Werhane, University of Virginia, USA, Scott P. Kelley, DePaul University, USA, Laura P. Hartman, DePaul University, USA and Dennis J. Moberg, Santa Clara University, California, USA

Debra Johnson, University of Hull, UK and Colin Turner, Heriot-Watt University, UK

This new edition of International Business examines the impact of globalization on key aspects of the business environment. It offers a comprehensive overview of this phenomenon that is altering corporate strategy fundamentally, critiquing the complexities of globalization and its impact on international business.

International Business offers a holistic examination of the processes that influence the evolution of strategy in the modern global economy. It is divided into three sections: • impact of globalization: how globalization has driven the processes of regional integration and the emergence of transnational governance structures • invironmental drivers: how international strategy is shaped and the emergence of internationalized businesses • resource issues: how resources can determine success in the global economy or impede firm evolution. Featuring a wealth of new case studies, updated pedagogy and a fresh new design, this new textbook will prove essential reading for all those studying international business. A companion website provides additional material for lecturers and students alike: www.routledge.com/textbooks/9780415437646.

In this book, the authors approach poverty alleviation from an atypical perspective. The thesis is that poverty can be reduced, if not eradicated, both locally and globally, but this will occur only if we change our shared narratives about global free enterprise, and only if we recalibrate our mindsets regarding how poverty issues are most effectively addressed. They argue that poverty amelioration cannot be effected by the traditional means employed during the last century—foreign aid from developed nations and/or from non-profit international organizations. Rather, the authors present evidence which demonstrates that a mindset embracing initiatives developed by global corporations in response to the poverty challenge is significantly more effective. Global companies can alleviate poverty by seizing market opportunities at the Base of the economic Pyramid (BoP) with the implementation of three key processes: moral imagination, systems thinking, and deep dialogue.

This approach to alleviating poverty offers some powerful ideas backed by the support of some of the leading Business Ethics minds in the United States. These scholars, some of whom are on the author team, have created a book that is unique and provocative yet still ideal for courses at the undergraduate level. Selected Contents: Introduction 1. World Poverty in the 21st Century 2. Failed Strategies in the Alleviation of Poverty 3. Mental Models and Contributing Biases on Global Poverty 4. Narratives of Multinational For-Profit Enterprises and Corporate Social Responsibility 5. Global Poverty and Moral Imagination 6.

Large Emerging Markets Competitive Strategies Peter Enderwick, Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand The rise and continuing strong growth of emerging markets, and particularly the four largest emerging markets (LEMs) -- Brazil, Russia, India and China -- offer both opportunities and challenges for international business. At the same time a stalling of world trade talks, a growing recession in the West and increased reliance on selective protectionism are all impacting on the prospects for emerging economies. Large Emerging Markets: Competitve Challenges goes the next stage of analysis of LEMs. This important new text moves beyond discussing the mere potential of LEMs for international business to consider how they will impact on the very nature of international business and the structure and operation of the world economy. The rise of LEMs creates three sets of challenges: • for LEM-based enterprises as they seek to enhance their competitiveness and internationalize • for existing multinational firms as they increasingly incorporate LEMs into their strategies

The Changing Face of Management in China

Social Regionalism in the Global Economy

International Growth of Small and Medium Enterprises

Edited by Chris Rowley, Centre for Research in Asian Management, UK and Fang Lee Cooke, RMIT University, Australia

Edited by Adelle Blackett, McGill University, Canada and Christian Lévesque, HEC Montréal, Canada

Edited by Niina Nummela, Turku School of Economics, Finland

Series: Routledge Studies in Employment and Work Relations in Context

Series: Routledge Studies in International Business and the World Economy

Social Regionalism in the Global Economy collects essays by international specialists attempting to move beyond textual analyses of regional agreements to offer new accounts of regional integration by combing insights from developing countries with original analyses from the EU.

The majority of SMEs are operating in a networked business environment, and these networks extend beyond national and cultural boundaries. Within these networks, growth takes various routes and forms. Instead of linear, positive growth, international growth is often more cyclical, including periods of stagnation and withdrawal, even exits. International Growth of Small and Medium Enterprises focuses on international growth, such as how companies expand their operations across national borders through opportunity exploration and exploitation, and identification and development of innovations, i.e. on international entrepreneurship.

Series: Working in Asia

China is one of the fastest developing emerging economies in the world today. The country has a huge influence on a global level, both politically and economically. Despite this, very few books cover both the full range of management functions, and the key issues facing managers in this unique business environment.

The Changing Face of Management in China explores the key challenges facing businesses and managers in China, across management functions, as well as across a range of sectors and organization types. Written by prominent scholars with direct experience in this market, this book adds to the existing body of knowledge by examining a range of areas of Chinese management in the context of local political, economic and social traditions, and the global economy. Part of the successful Working in Asia series, this book includes case studies that allow the voices of local managers to be heard, as well as extensive bibliographies pointing students and researchers to the most up-to-date sources of information in this important area.

Online travel is big business and has become one of the most popular items purchased by consumers on the internet. In 2005, US$106 billion was spent on online travel products and services with air travel alone accounting for over US$65 billion or sixty per cent. This represents almost a quarter of the total worldwide business-to-consumer (B2C) online spending. A variety of contributing factors is responsible for this development: • first, the emergence of the internet and specifically the worldwide web and their commercial applications in the mid 1990s • second, a change in the behavior of consumers who through inexpensive internet access and growing familiarity with easy-to-use technology today shop 24/7 from anywhere in the world • third, airline companies use the internet not only as a new platform to service, sell and market but - by cutting traditional supply channels and reaching directly to the end consumer - also to realize cost savings in their distribution systems

• fourth, the arrival of new intermediaries in the form of internet travel agencies (such as Expedia and Opodo), network affiliates, and mass sales and marketing websites that distribute travel products to the public. Considering the above, airline companies all over the world have integrated (or are in the process of doing so) electronic commerce or e-commerce into their business operations in various shapes and forms. Today, it is no longer a question of ’if’ for airline companies but ’how’ to deal with e-commerce and leverage it to enhance their competitiveness. This book explores these issues.

The book provides a comprehensive overview of international growth of small and medium-sized enterprises from diverse points of view. It verifies that SMEs in all parts of the globe share similar characteristics, but also differ significantly. New explanations emerge, such as ownership, steering of the company, or the negative consequences of international growth. It discusses how the changing external environment of SMEs pushes them to create innovative solutions in order to survive and succeed. This collection of new and international perspectives sheds much-needed light on how founders and management teams of SMEs can succeed in fostering the growth process, and what specific characteristics are instrumental in initiating and maintaining international growth.

The Economics of Industrial Development

The Economics of Sports

Airline Economics and Marketing

An Integrated Approach

Rigas Doganis, Consultant to the airline industry

John Weiss, University of Bradford, UK

Peter Dawson, University of Bath, UK

The spread of the manufacturing industry is an important part of economic development, creating jobs, new products and trade and investment links between countries. Understanding this process is an important part of understanding how countries develop and how they are affected by current globalisation. The economic geography of the world has been changing significantly in the last few decades with old established industrial centres in the developed countries in decline, and new centres emerging in countries that were once thought of as poor and still developing. However, this process has been very uneven with some parts of the developing world still largely non-industrial.

The sports sector is a vitally important component of the economy in many countries. Sports are commonly used as a catalyst for urban regeneration, particularly in relation to the hosting of major sporting events such as the Olympics and World Cup tournaments. Many governments have used sport for example as a means for promoting policies on health and crime. In financial terms, the commercial importance of sport has increased dramatically in recent times: TV rights for major sporting events such as the Olympics and Premier League football in England have broken the £1bn barrier and globally sport accounts for around 50% of sponsorship activity.

This book aims to explain this process from the perspective of developing countries. It charts current trends in industrial development drawing on available statistics and explores different perspectives on the role the manufacturing industry can play.

This book aims to analyse the economics of professional sports at a more intermediate-advanced level with a greater emphasis on popular international sports than the existing texts. There will also be more direct integration of the academic literature into the book through the use of case studies.

The book covers topics including: • aspects of trade policy as they affect industry • the international rules of the World Trade Organisation • the network of links between firms in different parts of the world economy. Separate chapters examine: • the special role of small firms and of technology in industrialisation

Sport also offers a fertile area for laboratory-style testing in the economics discipline. For example where else is it possible to measure individual pay and performance, evaluate the contribution of the manager, test the invariance proposition, analyse the impact of player restraints (e.g. salary caps, restrictions on player trades), understand the behaviour of cartels and the effects of monopsony power in one single industry?

The airline industry presents an enigma. High growth rates in recent decades have produced only marginal profitability. This book sets out to explain, in clear and simple terms, why this should be so. It provides a unique insight into the economics and marketing of international airlines.

Flying Off Course has established itself over the years as the indispensable guide to the inner workings of this exciting industry. This enlarged fourth edition, largely re-written and completely updated, takes into account the sweeping changes which have affected airlines in recent years. It includes much new material on many key topics such as airline costs, ‘open skies’, air cargo economics, charters and new trends in airline pricing. It also contains two exciting new chapters on the economics of the low-cost no frills carriers and on the future prospects of the industry. The book provides a practical insight into key aspects of airline operations, planning and marketing within the conceptual framework of economics. It is given added force by the author’s hands-on former experiences as a Chairman and CEO of Olympic Airways and as a non-executive Director of South African Airways while he is currently a non-executive Director of easyJet. 2009: 246 x 174: 352pp Hb: 978-0-415-44736-2: $190.00 Pb: 978-0-415-44737-9: $59.95 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415447379

• recent developments in China and India and their implications for other countries.

Qiao Liu, Paul Lejot and Douglas Arner, all at University of Kong Kong

The book draws on simple concepts of economic theory but avoids a technical mathematical approach and should be accessible to a wide audience. It extends and updates the author’s earlier work on industrialisation published by Routledge (Industry in Developing Countries, 1990 and Industrialisation and Globalisation, 2002) and aims to present a comprehensive overview of these important contemporary issues. The book is suitable for both undergraduate and graduate level courses, but will also be invaluable to professionals working in development.

Port Economics Wayne K. Talley, Old Dominion University, USA

Port Economics is the study of the economic decisions (and their consequences) of the users and providers of port services. A port is an ’engine’ for economic development by providing employment, worker incomes, business earnings and taxes for its region. The book provides a detailed discussion of types of carriers that use ports, the operation of cargo and passenger ports as well as the operation of such specific ports as Hong Kong, Hamburg, Le Havre, Savannah, Miami and Panama.

Port Economics is the first contemporary textbook of its kind. It enhances our understanding of port economics by: • classifying port users and suppliers of port services in the context of economic demand and supply curves • denoting that the demand for port services has two prices, the price paid to the port by the users and the price (or actual and opportunity costs) incurred by port user carriers, shippers and passengers

Defence Procurement and Industry Policy A Small Country Perspective Edited by Stefan Markowski and Peter Hall, both at Australian Defence Force Academy and Robert Wylie, University College of the University of New South Wales, Australian Defence Force Academy Series: Routledge Studies in Defence and Peace Economics Arms purchases are among the most expensive, technologically challenging and politically controversial decisions made by modern-day governments. Superpower spending on weapons systems is widely analysed and discussed. But defence procurement in smaller industrial countries involves different issues which receive less attention. This volume presents a general framework for understanding smaller country defence procurement supported by country, industry and project studies. Part 1 provides a general framework for analysing smaller country defence procurement, focusing on the formation of national defence capabilities. The framework is then used to analyse issues around the development of procurement demand, the characteristics of defence industry supply, contracts and relationships between buyers and sellers, and government policy for defence procurement and industry development. Part 2 focuses on defence procurement in seven smaller industrial nations with widely varying historical and political settings (Australia, Canada, Israel, Singapore, Spain, Sweden and The Netherlands). Part 3 consists of two Australian case studies of the procurement issues raised in, respectively, the naval shipbuilding industry and in a major, complex defence project. The book addresses the needs of public and private sector managers, military planners, procurement specialists, industry policy-makers, and defence procurement and industry educators. It presents general principles in an accessible manner and points to real-world experience to illustrate the principles at work. Therefore it will be of interest to scholars and practitioners in defence economics, strategic procurement, public sector procurement, and defence industry policy. 2009: 234 x 156: 416pp Hb: 978-0-415-36288-7: $150.00 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415362887

Latecomer Development Innovation and Knowledge for Economic Growth Banji Oyelaran-Oyeyinka, United Nations University, the Netherlands and Padmashree Gehl Sampath, United Nations University, the Netherlands Series: Routledge Studies in Development Economics ’This is an interesting book on an important set of issues – the nature and determinants of invention and innovation – applied to the development process. It is equally useful for assessing growth possibilities for the already developed nations as many of their advisors and policy-makers simply extrapolate from past success rather than evaluate and learn from it. The book provides an extensive summary of the debates on the importance and determinants of technological change for development, putting increased emphasis on the role of the state and of institutions in development, especially for the most lagging countries.’ - Michael Bradfield, Dalhousie University, Canada ’This book achieves two elusive goals. First, it creates a novel framework from two bodies of scholarship; the economics of innovation and learning, and development economics. From this framework and using new empirical data collected in a variety of African and Asian countries, the authors enrich our understanding of how latecomers learn and innovate to create wealth through knowledge accumulation. In addition, the book points to the heterogeneity of knowledge and capabilities accumulation that distinguish latecomers and in turn suggests a new way of understanding latecomer economies. This thoughtful and path making book deserves to be read by all innovation and development scholars, policy makers and students alike.’ - Alice Amsden, MIT, USA ’Latecomer Development is required reading for anyone interested in the issue of the role of innovation, knowledge and institutions in development. The two authors’ theoretical and empirical skills make this work both thoughtprovoking and very informative for policy making. This is one of the most important books in this field and one of the most interesting at a time where the least developed countries are left behind with totally dislocated knowledge systems which raise incredibly difficult challenges for development policy.’ - Dominique Foray This book argues that economic development is largely driven by innovation, concentrating on the dynamics of process, product and organizational changes and how they are embedded within specific and varied contextual institutions.

Intellectual Property, Innovation and Management in Emerging Economies Edited by Ruth Taplin, Centre for Japanese and East Asian Studies, London, UK and Alojzy Z. Nowak, University of Warsaw, Poland Series: Routledge Studies in the Growth Economies of Asia

This book argues that intellectual property (IP) development and innovation are fundamental to economic growth, especially in newly emerging economies which often hold vast reserves of natural resources and human knowledge that remain unprotected. It sheds light on countries that are gradually realising this situation, with examples from many parts of the world, including Eastern Europe, Africa and especially Asia, where a great deal is being made of innovation and intellectual property to stimulate economic growth.

Corporate Social Responsibility in Asia Edited by Kyoko Fukukawa, University of Bradford, UK Series: Routledge International Business in Asia This book examines the theory and practice of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in countries across Asia, including China, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand and Bangladesh, providing much needed Asian perspectives on this important issue. Arguing that Western CSR has enjoyed limited effectiveness, it asks whether Asia can avoid the West’s mistakes.

Professionals are a growing group in China and they increasingly make their presence felt in governance and civil society. At the same time however, the professions are under increasing pressure in the West – from commercialism or scepticism about their ability to rise above self-interest. This book focuses on professionals in China and asks whether developing countries have a fateful choice: to embrace Western models of professional organization as they now exist, or to set off on an independent path, adapting elements of Western practices to their own historical and cultural situations. In doing so, the authors in this volume discuss a wealth of issues including: the historic antecedents of modern Chinese professionalism; the implication of professionalism as an import in China; the impact of socialism, the developmental state and rampant commercialism on the professions in China; and the feasibility of liberal professions in an illiberal state. To conclude the book considers if there might be an emerging professionalism with Chinese characteristics and how this might have an impact on the professions elsewhere. Prospects for the Professions in China will be of interest to students and scholars of Chinese Studies, law, sociology, medical studies and cultural studies.

Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Regional Development

An International Introduction

Effectual Entrepreneurship Stuart Read, IMD, Switzerland, Saras Sarasvathy, Darden Graduate School of Business Administration, USA, Robert Wiltbank, Atkinson Graduate School of Management, USA, Nick Dew, Naval Postgraduate School, USA and Anne-Valérie Ohlsson, IMD, Switzerland Across the globe, the nature of business is changing and people need to be competent at creating their own opportunities, at being entrepreneurial. This trend is reflected in growing investment in entrepreneurship research and in efforts to move beyond toolkit approaches to training entrepreneurs to a more comprehensive understanding of theoretical principles that guide best practice. Originating in rigorous academic research, this textbook seeks to map abiding principles of entrepreneurial expertise to encourage the reader to think differently about the world in which they live, to emphasise that entrepreneurship is not only about trying to make a good living, but also an effort to expand the horizon of valuable economic opportunities. The book draws on the expertise of entrepreneurs who have created profitable ventures over long periods of time in the real world. In form and content, this book embodies their logic – it seeks to be bold, systematic, pragmatic and at all times full of energy and fun. Authored by an internationally acclaimed, expert team of authors, Entrepreneurship will be core reading for all students requiring a foundation in this seminal subject.

Dafna Kariv, College of Management, Academic Studies, Israel Entrepreneurship means different things to different people, but the entrepreneurial personality is a critical success factor to any new business. These traits are also increasingly in great demand at established multinational corporations. This groundbreaking textbook differs from its competitors by placing an emphasis both on the core processes and practices of entrepreneurship, as well as demonstrating the impact of complex, local environments in shaping processes of entrepreneurship that are unique adaptations to context. Topics include: • main processes of entrepreneurial venture creation and growth • operational steps characterizing processes of entrepreneurship • establishing and realizing entrepreneurial ventures • core processes and practices of entrepreneurship. With case studies and interviews with entrepreneurs from across the globe, Entrepreneurship provides students and practitioners alike with a unique, under-researched perspective on this subject. Selected Contents: Introduction 1. To ’Entreprene’ 2. The New Venture 3. Planning and Managing an Entrepreneurial Venture 4. Planning an Entrepreneurial Venture 5. Financing the Entrepreneurial Venture 6. Management Skills in the Entrepreneurial Realm 7. Marketing an Entrepreneurial Venture 7. Managing Rapid and Sustainable Growth 8.

This new textbook introduces the importance of marketing to entrepreneurial firms. Walking the student through the fundamentals of marketing within the SME context, Marketing and Entrepreneurship provides a more value-added learning experience than your standard marketing run-through. The authors deal directly with ’people issues’ (i.e. everyday entrepreneurial marketing interactions) to prepare students for the ’dragon’s den’ of entrepreneurialism.

Entrepreneurship & Regional Development www.tandf.co.uk/journals/tepn Editor: Alistair R. Anderson, Robert Gordon University, UK

New for 2010

David Y. Choi and Edmund Gray, both at Loyola Marymount University, USA

A new brand of entrepreneurs has arrived on the business scene, carrying with them a whole new set of values. They possess a sense of mission – to be socially responsible, protect the planet, and do the right thing for all of their stakeholders. Rather than focus exclusively on financial gain, they aim to achieve a balance between profits and one or more causes of their choosing. In fact, they view for-profit entrepreneurship as a vehicle for social change. The authors call these pioneers ’values-centered’ entrepreneurs. Some of the values-centered entrepreneurs have been around a few decades. In recent years, however, the numbers have proliferated and the nascent movement has started to make a true impact. These entrepreneurs’ approach to management questions our basic assumptions about how businesses should be run and what their role should be in society. Several of these entrepreneurs have attained high visibility. Yvon Chouinard of sportswear manufacturer Patagoina has been a role model for integrating environmental protection to every aspect of Patagonia’s business operation. Howard Schultz of Starbucks has been able to build one of the strongest brands in the world while being the first retailer to offer comprehensive health benefits and stock options to its part-time employees. Paul Newman, legendary actor and racecar driver as well as a leading maker of salad dressings, gives 100% of Newman’s Own brand’s profits to charity. This book explores how these highly unorthodox leaders have built their profitable and socially responsible business enterprises, and what lessons can be learned for the next generation of entrepreneurs. The authors examine a group of over 40 entrepreneurial companies and how each balanced the profit objective with social responsibility in key aspects of their business operation – from their initial company formation, through growth, to exit – to build successful triple bottom-line companies. Choi and Gray particularly focus on how these firms’ commitment to values affected their company missions, hiring and organizational policies, marketing strategies, financial practices, exit options, and giving programs, and vice versa. In some cases, the authors find that the entrepreneurs’ social objectives have actually strengthened, not weakened, their business enterprises. Based on their extensive studies of these companies, the authors have distilled a set of commonalities. The book presents ten of the most dominant and interesting of these commonalities with a focus on those policies and decisions that appeared to depart from conventional business practice.

’If there were one book I could recommend for demystifying creativity it would be this compendium or innovator’s companion ... it would be hard to think of anyone who would not find fresh and new insights within this well organised and highly readable volume. This volume is inclusive in disciplinary coverage; breadth, however, is not pursued at the expense of depth. This achievement is a tribute to the editors, and their magisterial framing of the themes which shape this book.’ - Terry Cutler, Chairman, Review of Australia’s Innovation System, 2008 ’Creativity lies at the heart of the innovation process - but understanding what it is and how it can be released and developed in organizations is a major challenge. This book makes a key contribution to dealing with this, offering a well-balanced and extensive collection of insights into creativity, built on firm scholarly research, but written in an accessible style. It deserves a place on the bookshelves of students, researcher and practitioners.’ - John Bessant, Imperial College London, UK Creativity can be as difficult to define as it is to achieve. This is a complex and compelling area of study and this volume is perfectly poised to explore how creativity can be better understood, and used, in a range of contexts. The book not only centres on creativity in wider organizational theory, but also defines the conditions in which creativity can flourish, and assesses how the contemporary business environment has an impact on creative solutions. The volume grounds the concept of creativity in a sound theoretical framework and explores issues of practical and theoretical consequence covering a range of themes, including:

Social Science Perspectives and Policy Implications Edited by Leon Mann, University of Melbourne, Australia and Janet Chan, University of New South Wales, Australia In many modern economies, creativity, the essential prerequisite for innovation, tends to be assumed or neglected while the catchphrase ’innovation’ dominates the field of business as the key to national performance and competitiveness. Creativity and Innovation in Business and Beyond illustrates the ways in which creativity spurs innovation – not only in the realms of business and management, where the innovation is regularly acknowledged and discussed, but throughout the social sciences. With contributions from experts in fields as far-flung as policy, history, economics, law, psychology, and education, in addition to business and management, this volume explores the manifold avenues for creativity and innovation within and across a multitude of disciplines.

Enterprise and Deprivation

At the Crossroads of the Gift and Market Economies Evangelia Berdou, University of Sussex, UK ’This book provides a thorough academic treatise of the open source phenomenon from a multitude of viewpoints, with special emphasis on the under-researched topic of commercialization’ - Stefan Koch, Vienna University of Economics, Austria ’The ‘next steps in the open source revolution’ have been promised by many but few have laid the basic groundwork of connecting real examples from open source practice to actual concepts underpinned by strong theoretical ideas. This book is all the more commendable for succeeding in this far from trivial task’ - Brian Fitzgerald, University of Limerick, Ireland This book contributes new insights into the organization of free/open source (F/OS) software communities by examining the links between learning, division of labour and commercialization, demonstrating the need for a synthesis of work on both community organization and cooperation to understand F/OS community dynamics. These aspects are examined in the light of detailed case studies of the GNOME and KDE projects. This book offers an innovative theoretical framework, a critical assessment of various methodologies for examining the organisation of F/OS communities, and a typology of commercial involvement in F/OS. The analysis reveals the diversity and evolution of F/OS communities and their connections with other socio-economic networks and institutional practices. The insights afforded by the book have implications for future research and the design and implementation of open source efforts. Selected Contents: 1. Introduction 2.

Small Business, Social Exclusion and Sustainable Communities Alan Southern, University of Liverpool, UK Series: Routledge Studies in Entrepreneurship There is little doubt that in recent years enterprise has been considered an essential approach in the alleviation of deprivation existing in the developed world. The assumption is that area-based initiatives provide a means by which enterprise can include all members of society in mainstream social and economic activities. The rationale behind this book is to critically challenge the notion that enterprise can address the complexity behind deprivation and social exclusion by demonstrating UK and North American examples. The contributions in this edited collection offer a distinct opportunity in respect of both theoretical and empirical advancement.
