  2. Social Capital

    Social Capital

    Edited by Viva Ona Bartkus, James H. Davis
    This book showcases new innovative research in economics, politics, sociology, and management regarding the topic. Leading scholars from a variety of disciplines present ground-breaking new research exploring the still-undiscovered value of social capital. The book employs a self-consciously multi-disciplinary approach to address two objectives: reaching out and reaching in. Through theoretical and empirical scholarship, the authors explore the many contexts in which the phenomenon can have impact. In effect, social capital research reaches out to issues of economic well-being, civic participation, educational achievement, knowledge and norm formation, and competitive advantage. Further, the authors investigate the many connections between the core themes of social capital and the pillars on which it rests, including structural networks, cognition, relationships and trust. This book is fundamentally about bridging – bridging across disciplines, units of analysis, and themes. Learn More

  3. Towards the Third Generation University

    Towards the Third Generation University

    J. G. Wissema
    Universities are undergoing massive change, evolving from science-based, government-funded institutions into ‘international know-how hubs’ dubbed third generation universities, or 3GUs. J.G. Wissema explores this dramatic change, tracing the historic development of universities, and exploring the technology-based enterprises, technostarters and financiers for start-ups and young enterprises that are the main partners of these 3GUs. He goes on to illustrate that universities play a new role as incubators of new science or technology based commercial activities and take an active role in the exploitation of the knowledge they create. The book concludes with suggestions regarding the way in which changes in the university’s mission should be reflected in subsequent organisational changes. Learn More

  10. Firm Mobility and Organizational Networks

    Firm Mobility and Organizational Networks

    Joris Knoben
    Joris Knoben illustrates that the number of firm relocations has grown steadily and considerably over recent decades, and at the same time, relationships between organizations have become more important to firm performance. It is often argued that such relationships require geographical stability, and the author therefore explores how these two seemingly contradictory observations can be reconciled. Insights from economic geography and organization science are utilized to develop a multidisciplinary firm-level perspective on the causes and consequences of firm relocation. Learn More

  17. Moral Foundations of Management Knowledge

    Moral Foundations of Management Knowledge

    Edited by Marie-Laure Djelic, Radu Vranceanu
    This book sheds light on ‘hidden’ aspects of management theory by questioning its moral foundations: ethical and moral principles tend to become over time, deeply embedded, if not buried, in the intellectual and disciplinary subfields of management, particularly when the latter vie for scientific status. In the process, they often become invisible or indecipherable both to those who advance and diffuse knowledge as well as to those who receive, interpret and apply it. Learn More

  19. Business Ethics as Practice

    Business Ethics as Practice

    Edited by Chris Carter, Stewart R. Clegg, Martin Kornberger, Stephan Laske, Martin Messner
    This book shows that in business, moral questions are not just theoretical; they arise in practice and have to be dealt with in practice. It illustrates that ‘ethics as practice’ is an important area of study because it focuses on how ethics are enacted and embedded in everyday organizational reality. In contrast to the approaches dominating mainstream literature, the authors of this thought provoking volume focus on the tensions, paradoxes and ambiguities that underpin ethics in practice.

  20. A Grammar of Organizing

    A Grammar of Organizing

    Maria Bengtsson, Tomas Müllern, Anders Söderholm, Nils Wåhlin
    A Grammar of Organizing provides a new, innovative perspective on the organizational challenges now facing companies in complex and dynamic business situations. This book represents a much needed departure from static theories of organizations to incorporate the dynamic and ever-changing nature of today’s companies. The authors assert that management and organization theory is increasingly turning its attention to the perpetual practice of organizing and strategizing rather than just focusing on formal structures and strategies. This new paradigm is thoroughly analyzed, and the consequent management implications discussed. The book then goes on to build a much needed, coherent and fully developed theoretical framework to further expand upon this new emerging perspective. The ‘activity-community’ model is built around fundamental principles, and numerous case studies are used to illustrate and support this unique theoretical framework. Learn More
