Managing People Across Cultures
Managing People Across Cultures maps out the value of people issues in the organizations of today. It challenges us to ask key questions such as 'How did Human Resource Management (HRM) come to be and what genuine need is there for it'? and 'What should the future direction of HRM be'? Fons Trompenaars and Charles Hampden--Turner spell out their vision for what HRM must do to stay relevant to businesses today. Their view is that people management must embrace the values of entrepreneurship i.e. agility, flexibility and innovation to ensure its continued effectiveness. The authors also argue that workplaces have to become customized to grow and learn as its employees push the boundaries of learning and discovery. Functional barriers also need to be torn down. You will discover that the rightful place for HRM is at the fountainhead of any business; the place where ideas are first generated and mobilized for action.

Capitalism in Crisis (Volume 1): What's gone wrong and how can we fix it?
Never before has there been such a period of intense change at every level of our society. Almost everything that we took for granted is now open to debate, whether that be the relationship that Britain has with the rest of the world or, at a more personal level, how the company we work for adapts to an increasingly competitive marketplace, and how that will affect our jobs. Everything is up for debate. What we are all searching for is clarity, insights and a reminder of the lessons of history that are in danger of being forgotten. Fortunately, there is someone who has the answers, or at the very least, some insightful questions that should be asked. Capitalism in Crisis is the combined insights of three of the world's top analytical brains who have been guiding businesses and governments in their quest to find answers and shape strategy. In this two-volume work, they have laid out the problems and shown the solutions in a highly accessible way using illustrations as well as text. They have proved that a picture is indeed worth much more than a thousand words.

Nine visions of capitalism: Unlocking the meanings of wealth creation
Capitalism has been in a state of crisis for nearly one hundred years. The effects of the stock market crash of 1929 were felt well into the 1950s. The turbulence in international currency markets in the late 1960s, which sparked worldwide street protests in 1968, was unresolved until the middle of the 1980s. The avalanche of financial crises that followed the failure of Lehman Brothers in September 2008 is still falling on businesses, consumers and communities around the world. In the face of such evidence it would be easy to think that capitalism is a doomed system. Nine visions of capitalism: unlocking the meanings of wealth creation suggests otherwise. According to Charles Hampden-Turner and Fons Trompenaars capitalism does have a future, but only if the standard Anglo-American model of capitalism is radically transformed. As the authors point out, creating wealth entails much more than simply making money. Society is only better off when it creates wealth through the transformation of money into products and services and the transformation of these back into money via revenue received. The current model of capitalism has led to a situation where the net worth of the world's top 10 billionaires stands at over $500 billion, enough to end world poverty instantly twice over. But the global economy is not richer for the presence of billionaires if the money in their pockets has simply been transferred from those of other people. So how can this failing model be fixed? Hampden-Turner and Trompenaars argue that accommodating diversity is a pre-requisite for the reinvention of wealth creation. China's spectacular growth, despite its recent problems, the dynamism and flexibility of the Mittelstand of German-speaking economies, Singapore's hybridization of East and West, the world's vibrant immigrant communities and the drive for renewable energy offer different aspects of an authoritative and challenging blueprint for the future of capitalism. Finally, the authors draw on examples of innovation in capitalism such as the Conscious Capitalism movement in the US, the Cambridge Phenomenon in the UK and the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, which has members from Mongolia to Patagonia as well as the US and Europe, to demonstrate what can be done to reinvigorate tired models and provide a realistic, practical and powerful transformation agenda for the global economy.

Capitalism in Crisis (Volume 2): How can we fix it?
There are two volumes to Capitalism in Crisis. Volume 1 investigates what has gone wrong. Volume 2 responds to the challenge laid down in Volume 1. In Volume 1, we argued that shareholders and the financial sector of the economy had become severed from stakeholders within companies who do the work and create the wealth we all enjoy. This has led to gross inequality with declining rewards for those working in the real economy on productive tasks. In turn, this has reduced wages and diverted funds from the most important contributors. We are less productive and innovative as a consequence. In this volume, we will address the subject of values. We will argue that values have scientific and verifiable meanings and it is possible to determine with great accuracy the kind of valuing that contributes to our integrity and the values that tear us apart. We criticise the contention of positivists that values are entirely subjective, have no testable meaning and are mere matters of taste, like the taste buds on tongues. We believe this doctrine has betrayed generations of students and must come to an end. Once we have restored values to their proper place, we will see who in our society creates wealth and value and who does not, who threatens democracy and who supports it. All values are really differences, and we need to reconcile these differences to remain civilized and in dialogue with one another.

Teaching Innovation and Entrepreneurship: Building on the Singapore Experiment
Is it possible to teach someone to be an entrepreneur? Is innovation something that can be assessed and taught in a classroom? Teaching Innovation and Entrepreneurship answers these and other questions by focusing on a teaching experiment in Singapore at Nanyang Technological University, wherein classes of English-speaking Singaporeans and Mandarin-speaking students from the People's Republic of China were subjected to an 'entrepreneurial eco-system'. Extending from the west coast of the USA to Singapore and Shanghai, this programme subjects students to a wide range of activities, including a four-month business simulation game where teams of students select their favourite inventions and pitch them to real venture capitalists with the inventors present. Drawing on the lessons learned from this highly successful experiment, the book argues that not only is it possible to describe the innovative process, we can also teach it, measure it, evaluate it and model it.

Capitalism with a Conscience: How We Can Create Wealth... Not Destroy it
The recent global financial crisis is in fact a moral crisis - from its very beginnings, capitalism has been a moral movement, a way of dedicating one's life to something that will outlast the individual. The West has lost sight of this. Unless we rediscover the conscience within capitalism, we will continue to be mired in crisis, and will ultimately be usurped by China and other developing economies. This important and timely book provides a clear-sighted and detailed overview of the faultlines and contradictions within the current Western model, and shows how governments, corporations and individuals can create a stronger and more balanced culture. Drawing fascinating insights from different business cultures around the world, including modern China, the Singaporean experiment, the German Mittelstande and Scandinavian models, and from the cultures of innovation and collaboration in locations such as Silicon Valley and the 'knowledge community' in Cambridge (UK), the authors make a compelling case for the strengths of capitalism while addressing its current weaknesses. This highly topical call to arms is essential reading for experts, lay people and anyone who cares about the future of our market society.
