Strategy, Structure and Style Edited by Howard Thomas and Don O'Neal University of Illinois, USA Michael Ghertman HEC Graduate School of Management, France Published in association with the Strategic Management Society, The Wiley Strategic Management Series aims to illustrate the 'best in global strategic management' for academics, business practitioners and consultants. This book explores how the emphasis in global competition shifts from one style to the next as companies in one country see their counterparts in other nations become increasingly effective by using different formulas for competing. This wide-ranging ensemble of papers comprises a rich body of research and experience, spanning academics, business executives and consultants all striving to demonstrate the relationships between management theory and business practice. Writings included in this volume were selected as being representative of some of the most significant issues currently facing business strategists. Contributors Jay B.

Synopsis:

Although it is impossible to include in one volume the full breadth of ideas under discussion in the area of strategic management, the editors have selected contributions that offer interesting food for thought in three currently crucial strategic conversations: Strategy - demonstrates the diversity of research topics in strategy. Structure - addresses how organizational structure can help/hinder corporate strategy. Style - management or corporate--is not often discussed directly in strategic management literature, though its presence and effects are pervasive. Strategy, Structure and Style addresses another of the Strategic Management Society's primary concerns--how to build and maintain bridges between management theory and business practice.

Synopsis:

Aktuelle Schlagworte des Managements - Strategie, Struktur, Stil - stehen im Mittelpunkt dieses Buches. Wettbewerbsfähigkeit und Wettbewerbsvorteile, Aspekte des internationalen Marktes, Prozesse und Paradigmen werden beleuchtet. Mit vielen Fallstudien.
