  4. LEADing Small Business

    LEADing Small Business

    Stewart Barnes, Steve Kempster, Sue Smith
    This is one of the first books to fully value and realise the connection between leadership and learning in SMEs. It provides a real-life narrative, encapsulating the development of business people on a leadership programme for SME managers, whilst explaining the key theories, models and techniques that underpin the leadership methods and approaches deployed at each stage of the delegate’s journey. The authors examine comprehensive data sources associated with three managers within SMEs and follow them over a ten-month period. Each chapter splits into two – an aesthetic narrative on the learning journey and a ‘theory sandwich’, which draws the reader’s attention to the theories, models and debates underpinning the learning at each stage of the delegate’s journey. A cycle of leadership learning through ‘lived experience’ is outlined and the importance of leadership learning within a community of practice and developing concurrently three key capitals - human, social and institutional capitals - are emphasised.

  5. Corporate Power and Responsible Capitalism?

    Corporate Power and Responsible Capitalism?

    Bryn Jones
    In this important book, Bryn Jones uses insights from political economy, historical analysis and sociological concepts of the corporation, as a socially disembedded but political actor, to address concerns over the over-reach of Anglo-Saxon corporations. These firms are compared with their continental European and East Asian counterparts, both in their social and economic functions and their institutional structures. Jones then draws on alternative models proposed by advocates of CSR, cooperative enterprise and corporate democratisation, to argue for key reforms for corporations’ greater social accountability.
