  2. Collaborative Strategic Improvement through Network Action Learning

    Collaborative Strategic Improvement through Network Action Learning

    Paul Coughlan, David Coghlan
    Improvement is fundamental to the competitiveness of networks and requires the participating firms to collaborate in identifying and introducing changes. This book presents collaborative strategic improvement as a cycle of activities in which firms in a network can engage together. Drawing on actual cases, authors link this cycle with disciplined action learning as a means of building upon experience generated through collaborative action. They describe how a network can learn from experience and deploy that learning in the marketplace. Learn More

  3. Operations Strategy in Action

    Operations Strategy in Action

    Kim Hua Tan, Rupert L. Matthews
    This fresh and enlightening book offers a rounded overview of operations strategy with a particular focus on implementation. The premise of the book is that developing an effective operations strategy without its subsequent implementation will render the strategising process a waste of time and resources. The authors explain the pros and cons of existing approaches to implementation, as well as offering a systematic framework for turning strategic intent into actions. The study will be of great interest to academics and will also give practitioners confidence in effectively formulating and efficiently implementing strategies that reflect the needs of the today’s business.

    Decision-Making on Mega-Projects

    Edited by Hugo Priemus, Bent Flyvbjerg, Bert van Wee
    This book enlarges the understanding of decision-making on mega-projects and suggest recommendations for a more effective, efficient and democratic approach. Authors from different scientific disciplines address various aspects of the decision-making process, such as management characteristics and cost–benefit analysis, planning and innovation and competition and institutions. The subject matter is highly diverse, but certain questions remain at the forefront. For example, how do we deal with protracted preparation processes, how do we tackle risks and uncertainties, and how can we best divide the risks and responsibilities among the private and public players throughout the different phases of the project?

  5. Supermarkets and Agri-food Supply Chains

    Supermarkets and Agri-food Supply Chains

    Edited by David Burch, Geoffrey Lawrence
    This book analyses the gradual shift in the distribution of power in agri-food supply chains, away from the manufacturers of branded food products to the global supermarket chains such as Wal-Mart and Tesco. This transformation has had a profound effect on the food we eat, together with the ways in which food is produced, processed and marketed. The authors assess the causes and consequences of this transformation, and evaluate the impacts along the whole supply chain. Learn More

  6. Supply Chain Network Economics

    Supply Chain Network Economics

    Anna Nagurney
    This book is the first to bring an economics perspective in a rigorous manner to complex decision-making in the management of supply chains. It provides the foundations for the modeling of the interrelationships among decision-makers in supply chains, ranging from manufacturers, distributors, and retailers, to the consumers, assuming individualized behavior. The models handle both competition and cooperation and provide the resulting product flows and prices in the chains. A unique network economics perspective is brought to the issue, setting the book apart from the numerous management and operations research volumes available. Learn More

  7. Environmental Regulation and Competitive Advantage

    Environmental Regulation and Competitive Advantage

    David Hitchens, Esmond Birnie, William Thompson, Ursula Triebswetter, Paolo Bertossi, Luciano Messori
    This study focuses in detail on the environmental compliance/competitiveness relationship with respect to the regulation of packaging waste. An important and innovative feature of the study is its emphasis on backward and forward linkages. An entire supply chain is considered: packaging manufacturers and suppliers, food processors and the food retail sector, to study the competitive effects of environmental standards on manufacturing companies and the vertical links and supply responses. A variety of regulatory regimes is represented by including within the study companies from Germany, Italy, the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom. While it is of note that the relatively strong regulation in Germany has indeed had effects on company behaviour, there is no evidence that environmental regulations hindered companies from achieving competitive performance.
