Latin America: Management Education's Growth and Future Pathways
Latin American business schools have grown in scale and quality in recent decades, yet they have received a relatively low level of attention globally when compared to schools from other parts of the world. This book seeks to address this dearth of attention and provide an in-depth examination of management education in the region. The book examines the main historical, cultural, social, political, and economic aspects of the Latin American continent and describes the evolutionary path of business education in the region until its current state. It analyzes and interprets the major events, key issues, impact of different actors, main changes, and blind spots in the evolution of management education in Latin America over the last 10 years. It then identifies the biggest on-going challenges confronting business education on the continent and discusses whether a Latin American model for management education is a realistic proposition. Finally, the book explores how the competitive environment of business education in the region will evolve over the next 10 years, and how these changes will influence the critical issues facing Latin American management education.

The Business of Excellence: Building high-performance teams and organizations
The Business of Excellence offers a unique and compelling perspective on the drivers of excellence in teams and organizations. The author, Justin Hughes, brings an unusual mix of experience and insight, having worked as a management consultant to some of the world's most successful organizations, in addition to having served for 12 years as a military fighter pilot, where he became Executive Officer on the RAF Red Arrows. The challenges of high performance and leadership are explored in depth, and are illustrated with insights, interviews and case studies from the military, sporting and corporate worlds. The material includes a proprietary performance model that can be applied to a wide spectrum of organizations, focusing on: * People: the primacy of attitude over skills * Capability: building alignment before setting people free * Delivery: a process to close the gap between desired and actual outcomes * Learning: how to accelerate performance in real time * Leadership: exhibiting a set of behaviours such that others choose to follow * Risk: avoiding the victory of compliance over outcomes. In The Business of Excellence, Justin deconstructs the drivers of high performance with a rare clarity, insight and accessibility, to illustrate and explain tangible tools and methods, all of which can be applied by readers in their own teams and organizations.

Why givers - not takers or matchers - win big. Perfect for anyone who enjoyed QUIET or THINKING FAST AND SLOW.The motivations behind today's most successful leaders and entrepreneurs come to a simple yet decisive explanation: there are people who give, people who take, people who match, and people who fake. Our world is filled with these givers, takers, matchers and fakers. Amazingly, those who succeed (not only personally but for their clients and companies) don't take or match. They give. (Although they're not necessarily philanthropic.)GIVE AND TAKE presents the fascinating secrets to givers' success. The results are unequivocal: givers gain big. Jack Welch, Richard Branson, Jon Huntsman Sr. - all of them are givers. In a world in which so many takers such as Bernard Madoff and Raj Rajaratnam have ruined lives and reputations, this book will reassure readers that the real power lies in becoming a giver. Since the vast majority of people aren't born givers, Grant not only presents the case for why givers win, he also offers their hidden strategies for winning.

Productivity Improvement in Manufacturing SMEs: Application of Work Study
This book focuses on the application of workstudy in productivity of manufacturing SMEs locally and abroad and also explores various industrial problems which face manufacturing SMEs in developing and underdeveloped countries in the rest of the world. Low productivity is currently a serious challenge facing manufacturing SMEs, where these SMEs are operating below expected production output levels which makes it difficult for them to compete in the global market. SMEs are the engine drivers of economic growth, one of which is manufacturing. The challenge is that government from various countries in developing and underdeveloped countries, mandated agencies in their respective areas, to ensure that there is economic progress for these SMEs, but productivity remains low in the manufacturing SMEs. When SMEs do not perform well, productivity of manufacturing SMEs declines and unemployment increases. Thus, an increase in unemployment results in a drop of GDP in the country and can become a global and economic crisis. This book describes a process which enables the reader to use effective knowledge that addresses problems facing the productivity of manufacturing SMEs such as work study tools and case studies and provides solutions and applications to improve the running of the manufacturing SMEs in growing their productivity.

The Lean Brain Theory: Complex Networked Lean Strategic Organizational Design
The most complex organization known in the universe is inside of our heads: our brain. Because organizations are formed by human beings, The Lean Brain Theory aims to mimic human brain structure and functionality so as to enable the emergence of brain-like organizations in which the 'neurons' are the human-beings and the 'axons' ought to be Lean Management oriented behavioral and communication patterns. These networks ought to evolve towards brain-like configurations that display thinking-like processes and ultimately organizational consciousness. The Lean Brain Theory offers a quantifiable holistic framework to strategically design any organization as a human brain. By embedding complexity into the Strategic Organizational Design (SOD) and combining this with Lean Management and neuropsychological state of the art knowledge, The Lean Brain Theory ends up with the metaphor as Organization as Brain and makes it possible.ã This idea of embedding complexity into organizational design is a follow up to the book The Hoshin Kanri Forest. That book dealt with the methodology of creating 'forest-like' topologies. The Lean Brain Theory aims to set the ground for Lean organizations of the future that embrace both Business Intelligence and Complex Networked Lean Strategic Organizational Design. The organization as a super-network evolves towards 'intelligent' Human-Brain-like entity. The Lean Brain Theory ultimately seeks to integrate an anthropomorphic organizational paradigm with future tendencies of technological advances. In this way, the brain-like organization emerging from it can be regarded as bionic.

Dynamic Capability-Based Approach to Value Appropriation
?Extant management literature provides a quite comprehensive picture of the dynamic nature of value creation, whereas value appropriation has received much less scholarly attention. The number of research works devoted to the complex issues of value receiving, protecting, and retaining is at the moment relatively modest, concerning both theoretical and empirical dimensions. There is a paucity of coherent theoretical frameworks providing insights into the dynamic nature of value appropriation. This book addresses the gap in the body of strategic management literature by providing a dynamic capability-based framework of value appropriation, discussed on a theoretical level and deployed in an empirical investigation.

Continuous Improvement by Improving Continuously (CIBIC): Addressing the Human Factors During the Pursuit of Process Excellence
Although many businesses, organizations, and institutions today have erected continuous improvement systems that address wants, needs, and challenges at the process and systems level, very few have effectively extended this pursuit into the human factors realm. As a result, even businesses, organizations, and institutions with the most finely crafted continuous improvement systems face the specter of failure from inadequate human factors continuous improvement. The Continuously Improve by Improving Continuously (CIBIC) System is designed to address these inadequacies in a manner that directly eliminates the gaps, deficiencies, and chaotic factors that often causes widespread havoc in our personal, academic, and professional endeavours. The CIBIC System specifically uses a variety of frameworks, methods, models, and tools to promote the structured inner development that is the precursor of the visible pursuit of excellence in our outer performance endeavors. Those individuals who enthusiastically embrace the CIBIC System will almost certainly experience a dramatic improvement in their professional performance levels, while those organizations that embrace the system will undoubtedly benefit from the new synergies and cohesion that CIBIC will undoubtedly create. This book explains how the frustrating reoccurrence of operating failures are the result of flawed or fragmented business philosophies and principles. This book addresses this systemic problem by highlighting an incredibly comprehensive system that promotes continuous improvement and the pursuit of excellence. By highlighting key inner drivers, essential outer qualities, and supporting models and frameworks, the book makes the pursuit of excellence an easily sustainable logical endeavor.

The Private Sport Sector in Europe: A Cross-National Comparative Perspective: 2017
This book outlines the private sport sector in different European countries. Sport in European countries is organized in three distinct sectors: state/public sector, which provides financial and political support for sport infrastructure; civic/non-profit sector, which provides sport activities and services for citizens, usually in the forms of sport clubs; and the private sport sector, which is comprised of profit-making private companies and professional teams that produce and sell sport products and services. The private sport sector is becoming ever more important in a global market economy and a financial climate characterized by a public sector in crisis. Taking this into consideration, this book provides a detailed outline of the structure and characteristics of the private sport sector, discusses recent developments in the sector, and compares data across business fields and countries. Containing contributions from sports economists from more than nineteen countries, this book provides an overall, up-to-date picture of the private sports sector in Europe. Filling a significant gap in sports economics scholarship, this book will be of use to students and scholars of sports economics and business as well as decision-makers in the public sport sector.

Software provides most organizations with key competitive advantages; however, IT is often considered a major cost center rather than a valued investment for an organization. Agile and lean techniques have helped to revolutionize software development, but they don't assess the value of these initiatives. This book argues that software development must be organized, managed and measured to maximize the flow of business value, end-to-end. It offers valuable advice and examples for identifying value and making it visible to all stakeholders (business and IT) in order to drive the decisions that will increase the flow of software value and drive greater business and economic benefits.
