Designing world class corporate strategies by Ward,, Keith. Publication: [S.l.] Routledge 2004 . 320 p. , Designing World Class Corporate Strategies considers the key role of corporate centres within very large, primarily multi-business organisations. At present, these corporate centres are under attack as not creating and value and merely adding cost to their groups. The authors have developed a corporate configurations model which demonstrates four ways in which corporate centres can add significant value. However this requires the centre to act in specific ways depending on the external environment in which the group is operating. Designing World Class Corporate Strategies is highly readable, with a large number of illustrative examples included in the text. Academic references and theoretical underpinnings are placed in the final chapter of the book, so that the book is focused on the professional market for strategy and creating value. 25 cm.

Identity and strategy : how individual visions enable the design of a market strategy that works by Rughase, Olaf G. Publication: [S.l.] Edward Elgar Publishing 2007 . 256 p. , This groundbreaking book explores the relationship between organizational identity and strategy and proposes a practical strategy making process that helps to avoid the typical pitfalls in strategic change processes. In doing so, the author bridges an important gap in management and strategy literature and explains how to practically link content and process when designing market strategies. A new conceptual framework is also presented which emphasizes the importance and dynamics of organizational identity and corresponding time discrepancies for strategy making. Whilst most strategists use the economically and analytically 'best' strategy as a measure, Olaf Rughase introduces a new measure for strategy making that takes personal feelings, values and aspirations of organizational members into account.Claiming that individually desired organizational identities - which can be seen as individual visions - give direction, motivation and impetus for strategy action and development, he suggests reaching a shared desired organizational identity which should then be taken as a strategy measure. Using rational and analytical factors the shared desired identity is then challenged and evolved until an attainable market strategy that works in practice is reached. In this way, he also shows how the organization's customers can be closely connected to organizational identity in practical strategy making. By weaving both practice and theory together, this fascinating book provides a fresh voice on compelling management issues and will be invaluable to academics, researchers, practitioners, consultants and students with an interest in strategic and organizational management. 24 cm.

Industrial organization markets and strategies by Belleflamme, Paul. Publication: Cambridge, UK | New York Cambridge University Press 2010 . xxi, 702 pages , "Industrial Organization: Markets and Strategies provides an up-to-date account of modern industrial organization that blends theory with real-world applications. Written in a clear and accessible style, it acquaints the reader with the most important models for understanding strategies chosen by firms with market power and shows how such firms adapt to different market environments. It covers a wide range of topics including recent developments on product bundling, branding strategies, restrictions in vertical supply relationships, intellectual property protection, and two-sided markets, to name just a few. Models are presented in detail and the main results are summarized as lessons. Formal theory is complemented throughout by real-world cases that show students how it applies to actual organizational settings. The book is accompanied by a website containing a number of additional resources for lecturers and students, including exercises, answers to review questions, case material and slides"--Provided by publisher. | "Among the numerous decisions taken by firms is the make-or-buy decision, whereby firms compare the costs and benefits of manufacturing a product or service against purchasing it. Typically, the firm will prefer the 'make' option over the 'buy' option if the purchase price is higher than the in-house manufacturing cost or if outside suppliers are unreliable. Naturally, the firm must also have the necessary skills and equipment to meet its own product standards. There is a clear analogy between this generic dilemma and the decision process that led us to write this book. As industrial organization teachers since the start of our academic careers, we have both long relied on existing textbooks to support our courses. Yet, through the years, our needs became different from the offers of outside suppliers. That is, the 'make' option started to become more tempting than the 'buy' option"--Provided by publisher. 26 cm.

Organization structures : theory and design, analysis and prescription by Baligh,, Helmy H. Publication: [S.l.] Springer 2011 . 497 p. , Organization Structures: Theory and Design, Analysis and Prescription describes how to organize people to achieve a desired outcome. This is accomplished by establishing sets of rules from "real world" organization contexts. Moreover, the development of these rules within "real world" contexts means that the rules must be true, general, operational, technically sound, and easy to use. With an understanding of rules and the processes of their use, organization structures can be identified, which in turn form the basis of a theoretical framework.This book discusses, examines, and demonstrates the interrelationship of the design rules, their theoretical use within these organization structures,along with their practical implications. Throughout the book, an extended example of the Masters Brewing Corporation (MBC) is used to illustrate the conceptual material and to make the implications of the organizational analysis explicitly 24 cm.

Seven strategy questions : a simple approach for better execution by Simons, Robert. Publication: [S.l.] Harvard Business Review Press 2010 . 224 p. , To stay ahead of the pack, you must translate your organization's competitive strategy into day-to-day actions that will enable your company to win in the marketplace. This means channeling resources into the right efforts, striking a balance between innovation and control, and getting everyone pulling in the same direction. How to accomplish all this? Continually ask the right questions, advises Harvard Business School professor Robert Simons. By posing these provocative questions, you identify critical gaps in your strategy execution processes, focus on the most important choices you must make, and understand what's at stake in each one. In this concise guide, Simons presents the seven key questions you and your team must regularly explore together: ·Who is your primary customer? Have you organized your company to deliver maximum value to that customer? ·How do your core values prioritize shareholders, employees, and customers? Is everyone in your company committed to those values? ·What critical performance variables are you tracking? How are you creating accountability for performance on those variables? ·What strategic boundaries have you set? Does everyone know what actions are off-limits? ·How are you generating creative tension? Is that tension catalyzing innovation across units? ·How committed are your employees to helping each other? Are they sharing responsibility for your company’s success? ·What strategic uncertainties keep you awake at night? How are you riveting everyone's attention on those uncertainties? These questions force you to reexamine the unspoken assumptions underlying your strategy and analyze how it's implemented through your business processes and structures. Simons' extensive examples then help you understand your options and make the tough choices needed for your company to excel at execution. Drawing on decades of research into performance management systems and organization design, Seven Strategy Questions is a no-nonsense, must-read resource for all leaders in your organization. 22 cm.

Publication: [S.l.] Cambridge University Press 2010 . 268 p. , At a time when corporate scandals and major financial failures dominate newspaper headlines, the importance of good risk management practices has never been more obvious. The absence or mismanagement of such practices can have devastating effects on exposed organizations and the wider economy (Barings Bank, Enron, Lehmann Brothers, Northern Rock, to name but a few).

It critiques prevailing enterprise risk management frameworks (ERMs) and proposes a suitable alternative.
