The Innovator's DNA: Mastering the Five Skills of Disruptive Innovators
A new classic, cited by leaders and media around the globe as a highly recommended read for anyone interested in innovation. In The Innovator's DNA, authors Jeffrey Dyer, Hal Gregersen, and bestselling author Clayton Christensen (The Innovator's Dilemma, The Innovator's Solution, How Will You Measure Your Life?) build on what we know about disruptive innovation to show how individuals can develop the skills necessary to move progressively from idea to impact. By identifying behaviors of the world's best innovators--from leaders at Amazon and Apple to those at Google, Skype, and Virgin Group--the authors outline five discovery skills that distinguish innovative entrepreneurs and executives from ordinary managers: Associating, Questioning, Observing, Networking, and Experimenting. Once you master these competencies (the authors provide a self-assessment for rating your own innovator's DNA), the authors explain how to generate ideas, collaborate to implement them, and build innovation skills throughout the organization to result in a competitive edge. This innovation advantage will translate into a premium in your company's stock price--an innovation premium--which is possible only by building the code for innovation right into your organization's people, processes, and guiding philosophies. Practical and provocative, The Innovator's DNA is an essential resource for individuals and teams who want to strengthen their innovative prowess.

'One of the World's all-time great leaders' Professor Anita Elberse, Harvard Business School What does it take to lead a team to world-class success over a sustained period of time? Sir Alex Ferguson is one of the few leaders who truly knows. In his 38 years in management, Sir Alex won an astonishing 49 trophies and helped grow Manchester United into one of the biggest commercial brands in the world. In this inspirational and straight-talking book, Sir Alex reveals the secrets behind his record-breaking career. LEADING is structured around the key skills that Sir Alex values most highly. It includes subjects we immediately associate with his managerial style: Discipline, Control, Teamwork and Motivation. But it also addresses subjects that are less obvious but no less important when seeking success: Delegation, Data Analysis and Dealing with Failure. Written with the investor Sir Michael Moritz, a longstanding friend of Sir Alex, LEADING is packed with insight, wisdom, humour and honesty. The individual stories inevitably concern themselves with football, and the phenomenal success that came along the way, but the lessons can be applied by anyone. Whether you run a business, teach in a classroom, or work in a small team, LEADING will help you become a better leader.

How people succeed - and how you can, too. ***Sunday Times no. 1 bestseller*** Alastair Campbell knows all about winning. As Tony Blair's chief spokesman and strategist he helped guide the Labour Party to victory in three successive general elections, and he's fascinated by what it takes to win. How do sports stars excel, entrepreneurs thrive, or individuals achieve their ambition? Is their ability to win innate? Or is the winning mindset something we can all develop? Drawing on the wisdom of an astonishing array of talented people - from elite athletes to top managers, from rulers of countries to rulers of global business empires - Alastair Campbell uses his forensic skills, as well as his own experience of politics and sport, to get to the heart of success. He examines how winners tick. He considers how they build great teams. He analyses how they deal with unexpected setbacks and new challenges. He judges what the very different worlds of politics, business and sport can learn from one another. And he sets out a blueprint for winning that we can all follow.

The Rules of Success: How Managers Can Overcome Setbacks and Grow
This book is about the rules of long-term professional success. The international study on which this book is based suggests that success is, above all, one thing: the quest for a combination of happiness and satisfaction, coupled with economic independence. However, the data also suggest that the definition of success varies significantly from person to person. And furthermore, it seems like success is not an objective quality, but at least partly it results from a process of comparison with a peer group - which means in turn that the selection of your peer group is crucial for your perceived level of success in life. The author argues that, in fact, certain success factors do exist and that they are fewer in number than one might think. But above all, if we look thoroughly at the lives of truly successful people, it soon becomes apparent that success primarily has to do with overcoming setbacks, failure and crisis. This ability to effectively process adversity is also known as resilience. Because of its criticality for success this concept is discussed in greater depth using the FiRE model (Factors improving Resilience Effectiveness) as a structure. This concept has been developed by the author through many years of research. It differs from existing models due to its holistic approach including analysing different disciplines of science such as biology, medicine, brain research, epigenetics, sociology, psycho-neuro-immunology etc.

Managing Nongovernmental Organizations: Culture, Power and Resistance
The idea that international development aid needs to be better managed and coordinated gained currency in the early 1990s. The increasing emphasis on management has resulted in the present vogue of `managing for development results' as one of the central tenets in the discourse on international aid. But how appropriate are these ideas, tools, and techniques for non-governmental development organizations (NGOs), and how much does geographic context matter? Examining the current debate on aid effectiveness and the role of NGOs in contributing to it, this book highlights the critical importance of understanding how the global and the local interact to increase aid efficacy and develop more culturally astute ways of managing NGOs. With a focus on NGOs active in sub-Saharan Africa as case studies, author Frederik Claeye demonstrates that NGOs are not mere passive recipients of management knowledge and practices emanating from the global governance structure of international aid, but actively engage with these ideas and practices to translate and rework them through a local cultural lens. This process results in the emergence of unique hybrid management systems that combine the pressure to become more business-like with the mission to satisfy the demands of the communities they serve.

This timely book explores crises as an inevitable part of modern society, which causes ramifications not only for organisations, but also for a diverse range of stakeholders.

Covering all stages of crisis communication, from pre-crisis to post-crisis, stakeholder engagement is analysed through a series of case studies, with a particular focus on the role of social media. Scholars of corporate communications and business strategy will find this new book undoubtedly useful, and it will be of particular interest to those involved in crisis communication and management.

Managing Millennials: The Ultimate Handbook for Productivity, Profitability, and Professionalism
The Millennial workforce has different goals and objectives than previous generations and possesses a unique perspective that is unlike any other employee group. Nevertheless, instead of incorporating a management style that is conducive to getting the best out of Millennials, business leaders incorrectly attempt to manage this subset of the workforce the same way they manage employees from previous generations. This must change! Archaic methods of management do not deliver success with a new breed of employee. Instead, the outdated model leaves Millennials uninspired and lacking the desire to produce results. To get the best out of Millennials, it is imperative for leaders to modify their current management style. With over 55 million Millennials working in the United States, the largest demographic in the workplace, it is critical that they are managed effectively if companies are going to succeed. Managing Millennials: The Ultimate Handbook for Productivity, Profitability, and Professionalism delivers a profound understanding of what motivates Millennials, generates increased awareness of the different ideologies and preferences each generation in the workplace values, and most importantly, provides specific actions you can use to understand and motivate Millennials and transform your organization.

Coaching is the universal language of learning, development and change. Imagine a workplace without fear, stress or worry. Instead, you're acknowledged as a valued, contributing team player who doesn't sacrifice priorities, values, happiness or your life for your job. Sound ludicrous? Consider this is a reality in many thriving organizations.Most leadership books don't apply to sales leadership.

Since most managers don't know how to coach, they become part of the non-stop, problem-solving legion of frustrated Chief Problem Solvers who habitually do other's work, create dependency and nourish the seed of mediocrity.Great business leaders shift from doing people's job to developing them by learning the language of leadership - coaching.In its powerful simplicity, Sales Leadership delivers a chronological path to develop a thriving coaching culture and into a coaching leader who develops top performing teams and sales champions.Using Keith's intuitive LEADS Coaching Framework(TM), the coaching talk tracks for critical conversations, and his Enrollment strategy to create loyal, unified teams - you will inspire immediate change. Now, coaching is easily woven into your daily conversations and rhythm of business so that it becomes a natural, healthy habit.In his award-winning book, Coaching Salespeople Into Sales Champions, Keith was the first Master Certified Coach to share his personal coaching playbook that is now the standard for coaching excellence. Ten years later and one million miles traveled, he reveals the evolution of sales leadership and coaching mastery through his experiences working with Fortune 5000 companies and small businesses worldwide.In the first book ever entitled, Sales Leadership, you'll master the ability to: Ask more questions, give less advice and the build trust and accountability to rely on people to do their job. Reduce your workload and save 20 hours a week on unproductive, wasteful activities. Shatter the toxic myths around coaching to eliminate generational gaps and departmental silos. Achieve business objectives, boost sales faster and retain more customers. Create buy-in around strategic change and improve daily performance metrics. Assess company readiness and ensure implementation of a successful, sustainable coaching initiative and create a healthy, happy workplace.

Dualities, Dialectics, and Paradoxes in Organizational Life
Contradictions permeate and propel organizational life - including tensions between reaching globally while focusing locally; competing while also cooperating; performing reliably while experimenting, taking risks, and learning; or granting autonomy while constraining freedom. These tensions give organizational members pause, but also spur them to take action; they may be necessary for preserving the social order, but are also required to transform it. Drawing on the Eighth International Symposium on Process Organization Studies, Dualities, Dialectics, and Paradoxes in Organizational Life examines how contradictions fuel emergent, dynamic systems and stimulate novelty, adaption, and transformations. It uses conceptual and empirical studies to offer insight into how process theorizing advances understanding of organizational contradictions; to shed light on how dialectics, paradoxes, and dualities fuel persistence and transformation; and to explore the convergence and divergence of dialectics, paradox, and dualities. Taken together, it offers key insights to inform persistent, contradictory dynamics in organizations and organizational studies.

Leadership: The Multiplier Effect
As 9-5 morphs into 24/7, it brings mounting pressures and new rules. Your life is full-on, relentless and exhausting and worse still, it's zipping by in a blur. It's easy to end up careering from one crisis to another, buzzed up on sugar and coffee, existing from one holiday to the next. The leader's job is to squeeze more from less, but most leaders feel they can't possibly work any harder and are sick to death with being told to work smarter. So where next? The answer is to use the multiplier effect to transform your leadership style. Good emotions spread far wider than we realise. A good leader who is inspired and inspiring will spread good feelings throughout his team. But it won't stop there. They in turn will pass good feelings on to their colleagues, clients and customers, who will pass on positive emotions in turn. The multiplier effect is the organic set of positive emotions which flow out in ripples from good leadership. This book shows how to lead well by being the secret ingredient in your team's everyday happiness - just by making them feel good and empowering them to pass it on. Leadership: The Multiplier Effect is crammed with the latest thinking on leadership, strengths, positive psychology, purpose, employee engagement, coaching, emotional intelligence and 'life', supplemented with anecdotes, pithy quotes and asides that help bring the content to life. And to save you time, the book's central message is this: Your job as a leader is NOT to inspire people. Your job as a leader is to BE INSPIRED.

Mentorship, Leadership, and Research: Their Place within the Social Science Curriculum
This insightful volume details the implementation and challenges of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), developed in the UK to ensure equal access to higher education for all social classes. It posits that a modern higher education institution requires a robust set of mechanisms - specifically mentorship, leadership, and research - to create high-quality teaching and learning. Noted contributors pose and answer key questions about the TEF in such areas as solution-focused teaching, mentoring for the job market, and social science curriculum development, using best practice examples in the field. These ideas and strategies carry great potential to improve the caliber of teaching and learning in universities, and with it, students' social mobility. Among the topics covered: * Why have mentoring in universities? Reflections and justifications. * Working with students as partners: developing peer mentoring to enhance the undergraduate student experience. * The employers' reach: mentoring undergraduate students to enhance employability. * Learn it and pass it on: strategies for educational succession. * Mentoring mentees to mentor. * Interdisciplinarity in higher education: the challenges of adaptability. Mentorship, Leadership, and Research will play a pivotal role in UK higher education since currently there is scant academic literature on practical tools to help universities to succeed at the TEF. A resource with international implications, it should interest sociologists of education and professionals in business strategy and leadership, social work, and community development. Michael Snowden is a Senior Lecturer in Mentoring Studies at the University of Huddersfield, UK. Jamie P. Halsall is a Reader in Social Sciences at the University of Huddersfield, UK. Given the recent introduction of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in the United Kingdom, this timely book outlines effective practices to help earn the Gold standard. While considering TEF within the current climate of academic competition and critical evaluation, a diverse group of experts lay out why mentoring is one highly effective answer to the TEF standards and without compromising productivity in other service and research agendas.

Pierre Bourdieu, Organization, and Management
Pierre Bourdieu, the French sociologist, philosopher, and anthropologist, has been widely studied and analyzed in academic circles, particularly in sociology, where his ideas about power relations in social life helped to define the contemporary field. While many other sociological theories and figures have been extensively discussed and analyzed within the contexts of organization studies and management, Bourdieu's ideas have, until recently, been largely ignored. Offering an authoritative evaluation of Bourdieu's work, this book provides readers with conceptual frameworks, empirical examples, and methodological considerations for advancing theory and research in management and organization studies. This book presents an in-depth review of the relevance of Bourdieu's social theory for organization and management studies, outlining the key aspects of Bourdieu's approach and situating his work in its historical and intellectual context of the time. An outline of the treatment of Bourdieuan theory by management and organization scholars and a critique of the selective reception of his work are offered. The first edited collection to explore the benefits of Bourdieuan sociology for a management audience, this book is relevant for theory, research, and practice, and will appeal to an international scholarly audience of academics and research students.

The Routledge Companion to Strategic Human Resource Management
Combining up-to-date research, innovative content and practical perspectives, this book is the benchmark by which all other strategic HRM reference works should be measured. Leading figures from around the globe survey the current state of the discipline, while also introducing and exploring new, cutting edge themes in order to offer a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the field. Section introductions and integrative critiques pull together the separate themes to provide cross-comparisons between chapters to create a cohesive and well-structured volume. Unlike other texts in this area, The Routledge Companion to Strategic Human Resource Management incorporates contributions from leading management and business writers in areas adjacent to human resource management, including strategy, innovation and organizational learning. These add fresh and challenging insights into HRM themes from key mainstream business and management thinking. The field of strategic HRM is thus enriched and extended by this volume. Focusing on the interplay between theory and practice, this book is an essential resource for researchers and students studying human resource management and strategy.

Quality: Domains and Dimensions
This book offers a comprehensive overview of quality and quality management. It also explores total quality management, covering its human, technological and analytical imperatives. It also examines quality systems and system standards, highlighting essential features and avoiding a reproduction of the ISO 9000 standard, as well as people-related issues in implementing a quality system. A holistic understanding of quality considerations, which now permeate every aspect of human life, should guide related policies, plans and practices. The book describes the all-pervasive characteristics of quality, putting together diverse definitions of quality, outlining its different dimensions, and linking it with reliability and innovation. It goes on to assess the quality of measurements in terms of precision, accuracy and uncertainty and discusses managing quality with a focus on business performance. This is followed by a chapter on improving process quality, which is the summum bonum of quality management, and a chapter addressing the crucial problem of measuring customer satisfaction through appropriate models and tools. Further, it covers non-traditional subjects such as quality of life, quality of working life, quality assurance and improvement in education, with special reference to higher education, quality in research and development and characterizes the quality-related policies and practices in Indian industry. The last chapter provides a broad sketch of some recent advances in statistical methods for quality management. Along with the research community, the book's content is also useful for practitioners and industry watchers.

Living Innovation: From Value Creation to the Greater Good
The concept of innovation is always changing. Innovation systems are no longer rigid structures, but agile and self-healing systems. And the goal of innovation is no longer limited to value-creation for organizations, but often aims for much nobler goals: namely, creating a smart future where people are happy, where organizations thrive, and where the environment flourishes. The emerging innovation paradigm for building a smart future is the practice of lived innovation. Here innovation and knowledge management experts Sang M. Lee and Seongbae Lim offer a roadmap to these new territories and their futures. Drawing upon real-world examples from across the globe, they explain the fundamentals of innovation; they introduce emerging innovation tools such as convergence management, co-creation, and design thinking; and they outline a new innovation strategy, co-innovation, by which many partners and stakeholders collaborate to achieve shared goals. Along the way, they also examine several daunting, negative impacts of innovation in the digital age---job losses, wealth inequality, and sustainability and environmental issues---in order to demonstrate why innovation must focus on the greater social good. Living Innovation is essential reading for business executives, public administrators, innovation researchers, and anyone eager to confront major twenty-first-century challenges in new ways.

Exceptional Leadership by Design: How Design in Great Organizations Produces Great Leadership
Imagine a world with great leadership. What would that world be like? Would it be a better world or a worse one? Now ratchet great leadership up to exceptional leadership and suddenly we have cause for optimism. But how do we design exceptional leadership, and would we even know it if we saw it? Traditional paradigms of leadership have celebrated decisive top-down control and analytical decision-making. But times are changing. The world is more connected, complex, fluid and interdependent. This book debunks the myth that leaders need to be creative like designers to apply Design Thinking. Applying design approaches and practices to organizational leadership is not just about its leaders becoming more creative. It is definitely not about the person at the top coming up with the grand answer. Design thinking starts with the `pain point' related to the problem you are trying to solve. You get to the heart of the issue. It is a collaborative effort that neatly leads stakeholders and representatives affected by the problem to design novel leadership solutions that actually work. This collection of stories, examples and narratives about exceptional leadership by design provides readers of all levels of experience with tangible, real, and heartfelt examples of how the design process can be applied to leadership. It will show how we: * Inform great leadership with design * Strengthen our own leadership by design * Redesign hero leadership for more inclusivity * Redesign organizations for Fe+Male leadership synergy * Design leadership for a VUCA world * Design flow-based leadership * Design organizations that build resilient leadership * Design leadership for innovation * Design culturally intelligent leadership * Build leadership into our spaces and places

ODI from BRIC Countries: Firm-level Evidence
In this book, the authors investigate the rise in outward direct investment (ODI) from four emerging economies, Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC). Over the last two decades, these countries have transformed from recipients of foreign direct investment (FDI) into important international investors. This new book explores the reasons behind the impressive surge in ODI from developing economies, and examines the characteristics of firms within BRIC countries by creating and testing a conceptual framework. Addressing the need for a greater understanding of aggregated ODI patterns, the authors focus on the different types of ODI being employed by firms within BRIC countries, covering details such as destinations and foreign ownership structures. By evaluating the correlation between ODI and a firm's performance, this book will be a valuable read for anyone researching international business and emerging economies.

The Eternal Business: How to build and exit a business for employee ownership
The question of 'what happens when I want to step away from all this?' is one that keeps many business owners awake at night. 'How does my entrepreneur story end in a way that preserves the good I've built up, and looks after the employees and clients?' For the owner who has spent a big chunk of his or her working life building up a business they passionately believe in, and nurturing staff they care about, traditional succession planning doesn't work. Employee ownership is the new and better way of preserving your achievement. Done the right way, you can leave a legacy and pass on control without employees having to raise finance. Financial expert, podcaster and author Chris Budd recently sold his own business to its employees through the UK's Employee Ownership Trust. But the movement for employee ownership is global - and interest in this alternative succession route is growing fast.
