    Handbook of Research on Strategy and Foresight

    Edited by Laura Anna Costanzo, Robert Bradley MacKay
    Drawing together a collection of 29 original chapters, the Handbook makes an invaluable contribution to theory and practice by stimulating disciplined, rigorous and imaginative enquiry into the relationship between strategy and foresight. Leading scholars in the field of strategic management are brought together to offer innovative and multi-disciplinary perspectives on the past, present and future of strategy formation and foresight. In so doing, they challenge research in four key areas: strategy and foresight processes; strategy innovation for the future; understanding the future; and strategically responding to the future.

  5. The Internationalisation of Mobile Telecommunications

    The Internationalisation of Mobile Telecommunications

    Peter Curwen, Jason Whalley
    Based upon the very latest data available, the underlying premise of the book is that mobile telecommunications is such a fast-moving sector that operators are obliged to alter their international strategies as circumstances unravel without necessarily having a long-term master plan, and hence that opportunism is a hallmark of operators’ international strategies. This state-of-the-art overview of the internationalisation of mobile telecommunications will prove essential reading for academics and practitioners with a vested interest in technology, telecommunications and strategic management.

    Organisational Transformation in the Russian Oil Industry

    Sarah Dixon
    Four longitudinal case studies of Russian oil companies are drawn upon to explain the process of organisational transformation. The book highlights how and why this process differs between companies within the same industry, explores the complexity of the change process and discusses the importance of the top management team. The links between organisational learning, dynamic capabilities and the implementation of change are analysed. An interesting insight into the constraints and enablers of organisational change is also provided. The framework developed from this study can be successfully applied to other organisations wishing to bring about organisational change. Learn More

  7. Restructuring Work and Employment in Europe

    Restructuring Work and Employment in Europe

    Edited by Bernard Gazier, Frédéric Bruggeman
    This detailed, comprehensive study on downsizing in Europe is underpinned by cross-national, interdisciplinary empirical research on restructuring management in five European countries: Belgium, France, Germany, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. It contains systematic national comparative overviews, and transversal analyses of more than 30 in-depth case studies, taking into account a broad range of perspectives across professional human resources managers, unions’ representatives, local and national civil servants, social workers and physicians. The authors examine strategic choices and practices in national and local contexts, showing that the practice of restructuring is not as heterogeneous as many previous studies have indicated or predicted. Systematic policy proposals for better economic and social management of restructuring are also prescribed. Learn More

  8. Contracts and Trust in Alliances

    Contracts and Trust in Alliances

    Paul W.L. Vlaar
    Paul Vlaar contends that strategic alliances and other forms of cooperation, such as buyer–supplier relationships, joint ventures and offshoring initiatives, increasingly stand at the basis of competitive advantage. Although contracts and trust play a crucial role in such relationships, prior studies on both governance solutions are generally confined to single theories, paradigms and viewpoints. Drawing on an in-depth case study, survey data and conceptual developments, the author advances a more integrative framework. He probes issues such as: • the tension between the need and the ability to contract • trust and contracts as co-evolving and self-reinforcing phenomena • contractual functions other than coordination and control • dialectical tensions stemming from contract application • standardization of contracting practices. By exploring these topics, the book offers novel perspectives on the role of trust in interorganizational relationships, shifting our attention and creation to the discovery of value by collaborating partners.

  12. The Economic Analysis of Universities

    The Economic Analysis of Universities

    Susanne Warning
    This book provides a theoretical and empirical analysis of strategic positioning of public universities. The concept of strategic groups from management theory and a formal equilibrium model of differentiation under strategic interaction are developed to explain heterogeneity and the role of teaching and research quality as the two main strategic variables of universities. Using data for German publicly funded universities, the empirical tests apply Data Envelopment Analysis and econometric methods. The results offer important insights for all countries where publicly funded universities play a role. Recent shifts towards more competitive university systems further increase the relevance of this book. Learn More

    Entrepreneurial Strategy

    Lucio Cassia, Michael Fattore, Stefano Paleari

The authors contend that mature and declining industries are increasingly dominated by the negative pressure of external factors, but they are also embedded with a potential renewed role for entrepreneurship because the industry forces as a whole tend to break up, leaving space for strategic business innovation.
