Both parts feature diverse studies from the United States, Switzerland/Germany, China, Brazil, and India. Learn More

    Edited by Alexander-Stamatios G. Antoniou, Cary Cooper
    An economic recession can affect the aggregate well-being of a population. This highly regarded and timely book shows a significant increase in the mean levels of distress and dissatisfaction in the work place in recent years. In particular, increasing job demands, intrinsic job insecurity and increasingly inadequate salaries make substantial contributions to psychological distress, family conflict and related behaviors. The contributors reveal that the recession has fundamentally altered the way employees view their work and leaders. With employers and employees still facing a continued period of uncertainty, a severe impact on employment relations is a continuing reality. Learn More

  16. New Perspectives on Firm Growth

    New Perspectives on Firm Growth

    Per Davidsson, Johan Wiklund
    This insightful volume presents a collection of innovative works by two of the leading researchers of firm growth. The studies extend previous research by providing stronger theoretical underpinnings and using longitudinal databases that can separate in time the firms’ growth from its presumed causes. They also break new ground by examining different modes of growth, such as sales growth vs. employment growth, and organic growth vs. acquisition-based expansion. Further, the studies investigate the drivers of firm growth and take a critical look at the effects, such as under what circumstances high growth is associated with high profitability. Learn More

  18. Strategy, Innovation and the Theory of the Firm

    Strategy, Innovation and the Theory of the Firm

    David J. Teece
    David Teece is one of the leading thinkers on issues of strategic management, particularly the importance of dynamic capabilities for organizations in industries undergoing change. This collection of his papers explores ideas of both theoretical and practical significance. Topics addressed include the development and elaboration of the dynamic capabilities framework, with an emphasis on the orchestration of resources both inside and outside the firm to capture value. Another area of focus is the theoretical and conceptual understanding of the essence of the firm. In an era of global specialization, mainstream theories about contracts and production functions fall short of the reality that managers confront every day. David Teece’s understanding of these realities is well reflected and clearly articulated in this book. Learn More
