  1. Essentials of Entrepreneurship, Second Edition

    Essentials of Entrepreneurship, Second Edition

    Robert A. Baron, Keith M. Hmieleski
    Drawing on their own creativity, energy, and personal experience, entrepreneurs identify and seek to fill needs not currently being met by existing products or services. By doing so, they create financial/and or social value. This text examines all phases of the entrepreneurial process: ideas for something new and better than what currently exists, determining whether these ideas suggest viable business opportunities, obtaining needed financial and human resources, securing intellectual property protection, launching the new venture, developing strategies for gaining and maintaining competitive advantage, and building a customer base. In discussing these and other topics, the text draws on research findings that help identify variables that play a role in entrepreneurs’ effective performance of these tasks, and so—ultimately—in their success.

  3. The Disappearing Product

    The Disappearing Product

    Chris Bilton
    Technological and social change has transfigured the market for creative industries. A new generation of intermediaries including Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google deal in context (how we consume) more than content (what we consume), displacing cultural producers, devaluing culturing products and monopolising consumer attention. Drawing on theoretical models across disciplines and rich in practical examples, this book charts an approach to marketing which challenges cultural producers to reclaim their place in the creative economy.

  9. Advanced Introduction to Globalisation

    Advanced Introduction to Globalisation

    Jonathan Michie
    Globalisation impacts almost all aspects of our lives. Smart-phones give access to news, documents and communications instantaneously and globally. It is said that change is accelerating, and the nation state is increasingly anachronistic. This book challenges that consensus. Globalisation is as old as capitalism, as is technological change. The reduced power of national governments is due to the free-market form of globalisation created by the 1980s administrations of Thatcher and Reagan leading to the 2008-2009 global financial crisis and recession. We need to move beyond this, taxing wealth and speculation to create a new era of sustainable development, globally. Learn More

    A Theory of Organizing

    Barbara Czarniawska
    This new edition of ‘A Theory of Organizing’ continues to promote a processual view of organizing, and presents a theory developed by combining multiple field studies with recent theoretical insights. The author defends the constructionist perspective from idealist interpretations, demonstrating how people and machines collaborate in constructing action nets, which eventually produce both the global economy and its local translations. Helped by information technologies, global ideas travel across the world – in physical space and in cyberspace, over national, sectorial and organizational borders, within and outside organizations – and are then translated into local practices.
