  2. The Ethics of Competition

    The Ethics of Competition

    Christoph Lütge
    The concept of competition is frequently regarded with ambivalence. While its champions wholeheartedly endorse it for reasons of efficiency, critics believe competition undermines ethics. They denounce competitive thinking, call for modesty in profit-making, and rail against economisation. However, Christoph Lütge argues convincingly that intensified competition can work in favour of ethical goals, and that many criticisms of competition stem from inadequate understanding of how modern societies and economies function. The author illustrates his view with examples from ecology, healthcare and education, and concludes with a call for more entrepreneurial spirit. Learn More

  10. Globalization

    Globalization

    C. Gopinath
    Globalization evokes mixed responses. It is praised for facilitating business, greater trade between nations and reducing poverty, and is also accused of causing job losses and homogenizing culture. While some nations cheer its benefits, others think of barriers to protect themselves. Yet, everyone agrees that it is a multidimensional and complex process that continuously reshapes our environment. Rather than wonder whether globalization is good or bad, it is important to understand how it impacts nations, organizations and individuals and be prepared to operate in that context. Learn More

  11. Limits to Stakeholder Influence

    Limits to Stakeholder Influence

    Michael L. Barnett
    In business, does it pay to be good? Drawing from two decades of published conceptual and empirical scholarship, this book outlines the mechanisms of the business case for corporate social responsibility and demonstrates the conditions that cause good corporate acts to succeed, or fail, in turning a profit. Central to the explanation is the role of stakeholders, who are portrayed as agents who can turn corporate “good into gold” but lack the capacity to do so consistently. This book takes a critical perspective, noting significant limits on the ability of stakeholders to reward good corporate behavior and rein in bad corporate acts. It concludes with several ways that scholars can improve this important and popular research topic. Learn More

  12. Elgar Introduction to Theories of Organizational Resilience

    Elgar Introduction to Theories of Organizational Resilience

    Luca Giustiniano, Stewart Clegg, Miguel P.e. Cunha, Arménio Rego
    With organizational environments becoming increasingly unstable, uncertain and equivocal, the concept of resilience has become increasingly significant for management studies. Resilience connotes organizational, team and individual capacities to absorb external shocks and to learn from them, while simultaneously preparing for and responding to external jolts. This book pinpoints the essential aspects of managerial and organizational resilience and offers insights that stimulate critical thinking. As the concept of resilience is essentially made up of contrasting forces, the volume presents some innovative synthetic interpretation that allows a deeper comprehension of the phenomenon and provides managers and policy makers with a solid basis for taking their decisions.  Learn More

    Evolving properties of intellectual capitalism

    Ove Granstrand
    Intellectual capitalism is evolving, driving and driven by technological innovations and various forms of entrepreneruship. The purpose of this eagerly anticipated book is to analyze the linkages between R&D, patents, innovations, entrepreneurship and growth. Based on a large array of national empirical and policy studies, it elaborates on a comprehensive range of innovation and IP issues that are pertinent not only to Europe but to the world as a whole. These issues include the role of patents and licensing in the governance of technology and innovation, and the various uses and abuses of patents. It further elaborates on new IP phenomena in an increasingly patent-intensive world with patent-rich multinationals and patent-savvy new entrants from Asia. In a world facing challenges that call for innovative responses, the book contains a set of valuable policy recommendations for strengthening innovativeness for economic growth and ultimately for social value creation.
