Harryson (a member of the Executive Committee in Booz Allen & Hamilton's Zurich office) offers advice and theoretical arguments about managing knowledge networks within business organizations. Terming the individuals who function as bridges across various functions and teams the "know whos" and presenting them as central to successful innovation, Harryson suggests that encouraging bridges internally and externally can lead to new competencies, knowledge transfer across divisions, the linking of development efforts to market needs, and enhancement of the cross-functional transfer of both explicit and tacit knowledge from research to manufacturing.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: In an economy where the only certainty is uncertainty, the sure source of lasting competitive advantage is knowledge. Peter Drucker (1953) Companies like Microsoft, Netscape, Coca-Cola and Yahoo can be found under the top U.S. companies with the highest market values in 1999. The market value represents the measure of value that the investors and markets associate with the company. However, these companies are not valued for their tangible assets (buildings, inventory, etc.), they are valued for something which cannot be shown on a balance sheet: their intangibles. These include brand recognition, Patents, customer loyalty, innovative business ideas, past achievements, etc. These companies are valued for the knowledge they possess. However, knowledge is of little value, if it cannot be found when needed. Therefore, a successful knowledge management concept is of crucial importance for these companies. The knowledge management market is growing rapidly and it will continue to advance over the next years. Knowledge management is still a relatively young field with new concepts emerging constantly. Most knowledge management initiatives have focused entirely on changes in tools and technologies, such as intranets and Lotus Notes. But knowledge management is more complex: it covers everything the company does to make knowledge available to everyone. The twenty-first century gives companies the tools and connectivity to easily obtain, share, and act on information quickly. Knowledge management uses these possibilities and recent studies showed that companies gained a competitive advantage by implementing it. According to Accenture research, a well implemented knowledge management process can improve employee productivity by an average of 60%. Often, knowledge management is seen as storing documents in a database, thus hoping to enhance knowledge sharing through the implementation of technology. But to successfully apply knowledge management, companies need to implement a process of motivating and inciting people to share information. The old saying Knowledge is power is still popular. The people who are hoarding their knowledge believe that it makes them irreplaceable. However, real power does not come from knowledge kept, but from knowledge shared. People are expected to cooperate, to be open, to participate within the new economy, but resistance can be expected. Obviously, knowledge management is a combination of [...]

This is a well researched and thoroughly readable work. As well as giving a comprehensive and clear history of organisations and their evolving forms, it manages to explain the implications of this to practitioners today. In particular the entire discussion of the value based organisation and what this means for the exploitation of knowledge, organisational learning and innovation are relevant to younger, knowledge based organisations. The world of work has changed for ever in the increasingly knowledge based economy and the way we manage and lead has to change with it. This book provides a good insight to those that need to lead the change. Bill Parsons, ARM Holdings plc A fascinating look at why organisations are the way they are and how we can improve them. This well-written and accessible book offers intelligence, insight as well as practical advice. This is essential reading for organisational theorists as well as practitioners. Binna Kandola, Senior Partner, Pearn Kandola, UK Hoag & Cooper s work is an important addition to our understanding of organizations. I think this book will be of wide interest not only to the academic and consultative community but also business practitioners that want to better understand the organizations they operate in. I appreciate the historical and systemic context they have been able to provide for the reader. Its informative style make it a must read this year. Robert Kovach, RHR International Company, UK Academics and practitioners will find that this book presents a novel theoretical perspective. It illustrates that many features of current practice, contrary to many gurus, are consistent with the status quo that highly limits progress. For example, the authors describe what they call the myths of rightsizing, competitive advantage and balanced scorecard. The authors present extensive illustrations of how their value-based perspectives can lead to new policies and practices in managing organizations. Chris Argyris, Harvard Business School, US An insightful and enjoyable book. Bruce Hoag and Cary Cooper first provide a concise history of work, organizations and management highlighting what has changed over time and why. Then emphasizing the value-based organization an organization committed to delivering value to all of its stakeholders they tackle the so what providing practical advice for organizations, managers and employees. It will make you think. Ronald J. Burke, York University, Canada Managing Value-Based Organizations argues that those who fail to understand management history are destined to repeat it. Research has shown that despite the prodigious output of management books, managers still have little idea why there is so much change in the world of work or what they can do about it. Most, it seems, are still waiting for the dust to settle, expecting instead that in the near future they will be able to go back to doing things the way they have always done them. This highly innovative and accessible book takes a historical look at how the organization and management of work has changed since before the Industrial Revolution and uses this as a basis to explain: how and why organizations and management behavior have evolved over the past 500 years the importance of understanding how organizations are changing today and what they will become in the future what new organizations will look like and how managers will have to change to be effective in them, and how managers can change their organization from one which is locked in tradition to one which is flexible enough to respond positively to constant change. Revealing both the practicalities and theories behind surviving upheaval in the workplace, academics, business managers and HR managers alike will find this book to be a fascinating and invaluable read.

This book dispels these myths and shows that people rely on the relation-based system not owing to specific cultural factors, but because of the stage of development in these countries. When the market is limited in scale and informal networks are thick, the relation-based system can be quite effective and efficient.

The failure of many governments to provide basic rights for their citizens has given rise to the expectation that globally operating corporations should step in and fill governance gaps, for example in the area of human rights. Today, many large multinational corporations claim to conduct business in a socially responsible manner, yet no tools exist to assess whether and to what degree they have indeed systematically revised their business practices to take on these new responsibilities. Managing Corporate Legitimacy addresses these research gaps by clarifying the role of the corporation as a private actor in global governance at conceptual and empirical levels; by contributing to our theoretical understanding of CC as a new phenomenon in globalization; and by furthering the development of appropriate approaches to CC in practice through its toolkit. The tool structures the implementation process in five learning stages (defensive, compliance, managerial, strategic and civil). The final civil stage describes political corporate behaviour. The author includes an empirical assessment of five Swiss multinationals in this book which reveals that most companies – even those with relatively long-standing and mature policies on social and environmental issues – have only just started to learn how to become corporate citizens. The book therefore concludes with a discussion of an issue-specific extension of the assessment tool and presents methods for setting priorities in the approach to corporate citizenship that may also facilitate corporate engagement with stakeholders. The tools developed in this book provide practical and detailed guidance for implementing and embedding CC and managing corporate legitimacy. It will be essential reading for practitioners looking for ways to legitimize their engagement with societal issues and for academics considering how we can better measure the engagement of business with CC.

A GUIDE TO EFFECTIVE PROJECT MANAGEMENT IN TECHNOLOGY-BASED FIRMS Used effectively, project management can increase a firm’s market share, product quality, and customer satisfaction. Though technology-based companies place themselves at a competitive disadvantage if they neglect this strategic tool, many overlook project management’s benefits because they see themselves as continuously adapting organizations. In reality, this role makes project management even more vital. Managing Technology-Based Projects imparts the latest approaches and tools essential to lead a successful technology-based project. It outlines the practical integration of project management with four key areas: strategic alignment of projects within the enterprise, the project management process and its organizational support system, invaluable tools and techniques, and the individual and group leadership within a project’s organization. Complete with examples of industrial applications, the book includes: Methods for defining key performance indicators and assessing project management process effectiveness Suggestions for fine-tuning and continuous improvement Practical case scenarios, discussion topics, end-of-chapter reviews, and exercises Attention to project management as it applies to a globalized business No one in a managerial role should be without Thamhain’s expert advice. This guidebook is your road map to successfully incorporating enterprise project management into technology-based work.
