  1. Transformational CEOs

    Transformational CEOs

    Kimio Kase, Francisco J. Sáez-Martínez, Hernán Riquelme
    Transformational CEOs questions why some Japanese firms succeeded in the 1990s despite an economy that failed – regardless of the burst of the ‘bubble’ economy, a number of Japanese companies have maintained or extended their international leadership in particular sectors. The authors argue that whilst some of the reasons for successes are plain common sense – operational effectiveness and superior CEO leadership – some are Japan-specific and point to a break with traditional leadership rationale.

  6. Handbook on Responsible Leadership and Governance in Global Business

    Handbook on Responsible Leadership and Governance in Global Business

    Edited by Jonathan P. Doh, Stephen A. Stumpf
    Ethics, social responsibility, leadership, governance. These terms are heard in the classroom, in the boardroom, and viewed on the front page of newspapers and magazines. Yet serious attention to the relationships among these concepts is lacking. Although commitments to leadership, ethics, and social responsibility are evident, individuals and companies are falling short in combining these duties into policies and cultures that guide behavior and decisions. The missing element is a broad-based and integrated approach to responsible leadership and governance. This volume provides the leading thinking on these issues and includes a discussion of emerging areas that require future attention. Learn More

    Sustaining Growth and Performance in East Asia

    Edited by Charles Harvie, Boon-Chye Lee

    Edited by Jean-Louis Mucchielli, Thierry Mayer
    This book analyses how foreign direct investors choose their locations, whilst exploring the forces which shape international economic geography. Although these two issues are, to some extent, inter-related, researchers have only recently acknowledged the similarity of economic geography and international business approaches to the empirical assessment of likely causes of the degree of spatial concentration observed in many modern industries.

  17. Innovation Strategies and Performance in Small Firms

    Innovation Strategies and Performance in Small Firms

    John R. Baldwin, Guy Gellatly
    John Baldwin and Guy Gellatly find that the strategic decisions young firms make play a critical role in determining their odds for survival and growth. New small firms survive by developing a core set of business skills – skills related inter alia to management, human resources, marketing and financing. Advanced innovation capabilities related to R&D and technology set high-performance firms apart from other businesses. Industry-level differences in product lifecycle, production activity, competitive intensity and the science base all influence the nature of small-firm innovation. Learn More

  19. The Structural Foundations of International Finance

    The Structural Foundations of International Finance

    Edited by Pier Carlo Padoan, Paul A. Brenton, Gavin Boyd
    The Structural Foundations of International Finance examines the ways in which national economies, especially those of industrialized countries, are affected by the operations of international financial markets. Although these markets provide productive funding, there is also much speculative trading in stocks and currencies which can cause booms, slumps and hinder recovery. The authors advocate entrepreneurial coordination by productive enterprises for balanced and stable growth, with reduced risks of financial crises and recessions. Learn More
