Now in its fourth edition, it continues to challenge academics, students and practitioners to approach HRM from a strategic perspective. New to this edition: • All chapters have been fully updated, the selection of key studies improved, and the links to major events brought up to date. • Includes a more thorough analysis of the general principles in strategic HRM. • It has been restructured to provide a deeper examination of HR strategy in the 'mega contexts' of manufacturing, services, multidivisional firms, and multinationals. This book is an essential companion for upper-level undergraduates, postgraduate students of HRM, and MBA students.

Harness the Power of Your Most Valuable Resource—Your Workforce! Process improvement approaches like Six Sigma and Lean Enterprise have worked wonders for countless organizations, but in the drive for true excellence, these approaches are only one important part of the formula. Building Engaged Team Performance explains the next wave of business improvement: driving breakthrough gains by integrating process improvement with “the people side” of performance. Breaking new ground in the world of organizational improvement, performance management expert Dodd Starbird teams up with Roland Cavanagh, coauthor of the bestselling The Six Sigma Way, to present a system for aligning and optimizing processes and the efforts of any organization’s most valuable asset: people. Combining the principles from Total Quality Management (TQM), Six Sigma, Lean, and Socio-Technical Systems, Engaged Team Performance helps you harness the massive potential of human performance that is not captured by process improvements alone. Illustrated through real-life stories, Building Engaged Team Performance offers a stepby- step program that shows you how you can more than double the productivity of your business.

Praise for Building Engaged Team Performance “The Engaged Team Performance effort that we undertook has allowed us to reshape our process from start to finish and improve both productivity and the communication among multiple departments.” Art Bacci, President & CEO, Principal Bank “This book provides practical insights on building competencies of change leaders throughout the organization.” Dr. William D. Trotter, Managing Director, Association of Internal Management Consultants (AIMC) “By embedding these concepts into organizational culture, systems, and processes, a group of individuals may become a winning team.” Dan Bell, President, Canon Information Technology Services “When I led a division at GE during the heyday of Six Sigma, process excellence and team performance were both critical; yet they were considered different disciplines, supported by separate infrastructure. Engaged Team Performance combines and aligns the best of both, and it delivers even better results.” C. Lewis Fain, President, Mortgage Payment Protection, Inc. “If your strategic vision includes words like growth, customer loyalty, value creation, responsiveness, quality, expertise, partnership, accountability, efficiency, or best in class, then Building Engaged Team Performance has to be part of the foundation.

Good strategic managers are capable of seeing the big picture and managing across the whole organization -- that is the message of Strategic Management: A Cross-Functional Approach. This text shows students that successful strategic management requires an ability to see the organization as a whole--to step out of the functional silos that students tend to acquire through previous work experience or prior courses, and see the organization in a new way. To be good strategic thinkers, people from a marketing or HR background need to understand financials and how to use them, and finance and accounting people need to see that customer and employee relationships are the lifeblood of the organization. Strategic Management is unique in covering the research, tools, and theory of strategic management - taking a cross-functional and integrative perspective, by focusing on value creation for customers, employees, and owners/stockholders. This concept, called the customer-employee-owner cycle, is introduced in Chapter 1 and serves as an organizing framework throughout the book. Each chapter is brought to life for students with a "focus company," used as a running example to illustrate and enliven the material in the chapter. Focus companies include organizations students are familiar with and interested in, such as Nike, Microsoft, Wal-Mart, John & Johnson, and the Walt Disney Company.

The legacy of today's inter professional health care leaders will be the successful transformation of the healthcare system at the point of care. Most healthcare leaders and providers are masters of problem solving. However, the major issues haunting healthcare today are combinations of problems and polarities. When healthcare professionals are not clear about how to differentiate between problems and polarities, they waste time, money and energy. The readers, whether executives, clinicians, managers, educators, researchers or consultants will learn how to differentiate problems from polarities and learn to use a principle-driven framework that explains how to leverage all polarities. The identification of common polarities, both simple and complex, that exist in every healthcare setting will help the reader to understand how this new way of thinking is the missing logic that will help them to achieve sustainable change, stop the waste of time, money and energy and move their goals beyond just fixing problems to creating new possibilities.

From international NGOs to UN agencies, from donors to observers of humanitarianism, opinion is unanimous: in a context of the alleged "clash of civilizations", our "humanitarian space" is shrinking. Put another way, the freedom of action and of speech of humanitarians is being eroded due to the radicalisation of conflicts and the reaffirmation of state sovereignty over aid actors and policies. The purpose of this book is to challenge this assumption through an analysis of the events that have marked MSF's history since 2003 (when MSF published its first general work on humanitarian action and its relationships with governments). It addresses the evolution of humanitarian goals, the resistance to these goals and the political arrangements that overcame this resistance (or that failed to do so). The contributors seek to analyse the political transactions and balances of power and interests that allow aid activities to move forward, but that are usually masked by the lofty rhetoric of "humanitarian principles". They focus on one key question: what is an acceptable compromise for MSF? This book seeks to puncture a number of the myths that have grown up over the forty years since MSF was founded and describes in detail how the ideals of humanitarian principles and "humanitarian space" operating in conflict zones are in reality illusory. How, in fact, it is the grubby negotiations with varying parties, each of whom have their own vested interests, that may allow organisations such as MSF to operate in a given crisis situation - or not.

Examining the new ecosystems of access that are emerging in middle- and low-income countries as opportunities for higher education expand but funding for materials shrinks. Even as middle- and low-income countries expand their higher education systems, their governments are retreating from responsibility for funding and managing this expansion. The public provision of educational materials in these contexts is rare; instead, libraries, faculty, and students are on their own to get what they need. Shadow Libraries explores the new ecosystem of access, charting the flow of educational and research materials from authors to publishers to libraries to students, and from comparatively rich universities to poorer ones. In countries from Russia to Brazil, the weakness of formal models of access was countered by the growth of informal ones. By the early 2000s, the principal form of access to materials was informal copying and sharing. Since then, such unauthorized archives as Libgen, Gigapedia, and Sci-Hub have become global “shadow libraries,” with massive aggregations of downloadable scholarly materials. The chapters consider experiments with access in a range of middle- and low-income countries, describing, among other things, the Russian samizdat tradition and the connection of illicit copying to resistance to oppression; BiblioFyL, an online archive built by students at the University of Buenos Aires; education policy and the daily practices of students in post-Apartheid South Africa; the politics of access in India; and copy culture in Brazil.

In 2013, the government abolished the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), which had been Canada’s flagship foreign aid agency for decades, and transferred its functions to the newly renamed Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD). As the government is rethinking Canadian aid and its relationship with other foreign policy and commercial objectives, the time is ripe to rethink Canadian aid more broadly. Edited by Stephen Brown, Molly den Heyer and David R. Black, this is the first book on Canadian foreign aid since CIDA was folded into DFATD. Designed to reach a variety of audiences, contributions by twenty-one scholars and experts in the field offer an incisive examination of Canada’s record and recent changes in Canadian foreign aid, such as its focus on maternal and child health and on the extractive sector. Many chapters also ask more fundamental questions concerning the intersection of the moral imperative that underpins aid and the trend towards greater self-interest. For instance, what are and what should be the underlying motives of Canadian aid? How compatible are altruism and self-interest in foreign aid? To what extent should aid be integrated with Canada’s other policies and practices? The portrait that emerges is a sobering one. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in Canada’s changing role in the world and how it reflects on Canada.
