Book Description

More Details..

The latest instalment of the successful Routledge Masters in Public Management series: Human Resource Management in Public Service Organizations addresses a significant gap in texts that are available to practitioners and scholars of public sector management. There has been an extensive adoption of private sector human resource management (HRM) techniques within the public sectors of various countries. This transformation has had its genesis in public choice theory which has argued that government is inefficient and non-responsive.

Beattie and Waterhouse combine practical techniques of human resource management within the context of the public sector focussing on a number of key areas:

    • The various components of HRM and how they may be applied in a public sector environment
    • Debates in relation to the benefits of HRM within the public sector, and in particular, whether the distinctiveness of the public sector calls for a unique practice of HRM.
    • Critically evaluating the interaction between HRM and the changing context of public management.
    • Critically evaluating the interaction between HRM and public and voluntary sector values.

Human Resource Management in Public Service Organizations seeks to equip public sector managers and students of public management with the necessary skills and knowledge to more effectively manage their human resources.

More Details..

This book shows how the Bhagavad Gītā (part of the great Indian epic — the Mahābhārata) can be approached as a powerful tool for change management and as a catalyst for organizational transformation. It presents time-tested leadership strategies drawn from the Bhagavad Gītā that are relevant for today’s leaders. This book focuses on how to harmonize the needs of the individual with the needs of society, and by extension, how to harmonize the needs of employees and the organization. It employs an inside-out leadership development approach based on Self-knowledge and Self-mastery, the two highly important areas for practicing effective Self-leadership. The Gītā is a non-sectarian spiritual text with a universal message for living a life of meaning, purpose, and contribution and for leading from our authentic self. It shows how to manage oneself, as a necessary prelude to leading others. Students and organizational leaders will learn to integrate leadership function more effectively into all aspects at the individual, team, and institutional level.

The groundbreaking guide to boosting efficiency and revenue in any white-collar setting—without investing in new technology

Despite the ubiquity of advanced office technology, knowledge work has seen virtually no measurable productivity improvement since the 1960s. In fact, technology often leads to decreased productivity. This well-documented disconnect is known as the Productivity Paradox, and it has been accepted as normal by companies around the world for decades. 

The Knowledge Work Factory provides a proven, easy-to-implement program for eliminating the Productivity Paradox. This one-stop guide takes you through the processes of scrutinizing workflows and activities, ferreting out waste, and restructuring processes to boost efficiency, productivity, and job satisfaction to the very knowledge workers it affects.

More Details..

This book describes a systematic approach to risk assessment for complex socio-technical systems like industrial processes, especially innovative ones. It provides an overview of applications of system dynamics theory and methodologies on industrial systems in order to demonstrate the relevance of such an approach in helping to assess risks in such complex systems.

An important feature of this approach is that it takes into account the dynamic of the interactions of the components (technical, human and organizational ones) in order to study and simulate the behavior of the system. This methodology helps to define the failures and/or accident scenarios and to implement and test the prevention and protection barriers.

This book is of particular interest to students and teachers at university level (Master and Doctorate) and to engineers interested in risk analysis and management.

More Details..

This book is the first systematic exposition of advances in Kaiyu studies carried out by the author and his colleagues in Japan and other parts of Asia. Consumer shop-around behavior is referred to as Kaiyu in Japanese, a term widely used in several fields such as city planning, marketing, real estate, tourism, and regional policy. The book demonstrates how Kaiyu research has evolved from the original idea to the present state and envisages prospective Kaiyu studies in the age of big data and the Internet of Things (IoT). The distinguishing feature of their research is that Kaiyu is regarded as consumers’ simultaneous decisions sequentially made while undertaking their shop-arounds as to which shops they visit, for what purpose, and how much they spend there. This is a sharp contrast to much research on trip chains, which only deal with spatial movements. As a result, their studies first succeeded in empirically exploring the relationships between consumer shop-around movements and money flows among shopping sites within a city center retail environment. As a result, the author and his coworkers uncovered the roles of many urban policies and facilities inexplicit so far by revealing how they contribute to the turnover of the whole town through stimulating Kaiyu. This gives a universal means of evaluation for urban development policy. Thus they have refreshed the scope of consumer shop-around studies from shop-around movements in the context of city planning, shopping marketing, and evaluation of urban revitalization policy, to town equity researches. This book presents step by step these conceptual developments by showing concrete research examples from their vast Kaiyu studies based on numerous empirical interview surveys at real retail environments.

This practice- and research-based book caters to the needs of executive managers who see customer satisfaction as their primary goal. The authors identify the need for an effective complaint management strategy that prevents the loss of dissatisfied customers. Dissatisfied customers are at risk of migrating; accordingly, neglecting professional complaint management poses a considerable threat to customer relationships, sales and profits.

The book offers a comprehensive management concept, which emphasizes direct contact with the complainant by employing complaint stimulation, acceptance, processing and reaction. Further, it discusses the relevant ‘backstage’ tasks involved in using complaint information to achieve quality improvements and cost reductions through complaint analysis, controlling and reporting.

More Details..

Leadership used to be about telling people to go where you sent them– now it’s about persuading them to come with you.

Old leaders needed to create an artificial persona of infallible authority to issue orders that were obeyed – today’s leaders need to uncover their own authentic leadership personality and bring that open and honest self to conversations that bring others to willing and lasting change.

To do so effectively they need to unlearn old leadership behaviours and develop totally different ones. In Leading by Coaching Nick Marson shows how. Leaders are shown how to “Look In” to develop greater self-awareness, “Look Out” to others by utilising a coaching approach, and “Look Beyond” to face uncertainty, manage adaptability and acquire resilience.

Marson’s approach is based on deeply researched principals, multiple social science disciplines, the latest cognitive, neurological and psychological research, and in-depth research interviews with over 20 CEOs and senior executives. It has been developed and refined over many years of practice.

If leaders want to drive impactful change, they need to understand how to hold the coaching conversations that power it. They need to lead by coaching.

More Details..

Implement application programming interface (API) usability, security, availability, reliability, and scalability to extend your company’s market and potentially generate revenue. Businesses know they need to extend their markets into the digital world, and expose internal data to the Internet. This book shows how stakeholders within an organization can make it a successful journey.

Stakeholder needs are not identical and departments experience difficulties discussing requirements with each other due to their different fundamental understanding of the process. The goal of this book is to introduce a common language for all business groups—developers, security experts, architects, product managers—around APIs and provide an overview of all aspects that need to be considered when exposing internal data.

Most of the content in this book is based on feedback from real-world enterprise customer questions, challenges, and business scenarios. Practical guidance is provided on the business value of APIs, the general requirements to know, and how to undertake an audience-based implementation. You will learn how to protect access to data, as well as API error handling, documentation, management, integration, and more.


What You’ll Learn

  • Know the types of APIs and their business and technical requirements
  • The main benefits of APIs, including business value, loose coupling, and frequent updates
  • Protect access to APIs through role-based access, attribute-based access, and rate limiting
  • Distinguish between OAuth and OpenID Connect, and know how they both work
  • Manage API error handling, including what should and should not be handled
  • Understand the distinction between runtime, dynamic data, and static data
  • Leverage external APIs as part of your own APIs


Who This Book Is For

API developers, API security experts, software architects, product owners, and business owners

This book explores new ways for companies to sustain their success, by means of viable business models and a values-driven culture.

In subsequent chapters, the book describes key challenges for modern management, introduces a paradigm of sustainable management, and presents roadmaps to future viability and axioms of viable business management. 
Active practitioners in executive and operational management roles, research and development, innovation management, human resources, sustainability, or process management will benefit from this volume. Given its scope of coverage, the book offers a valuable resource for lecturers and students in business management, economics, law, and sustainability-related degree courses.

This book examines the role of corporate culture in the execution of successful strategies for diversity and innovation. It explores how information is communicated across real organizations and how diversity impacts the effectiveness of the communication.

Effective and creative leadership is needed to employ a diverse workforce for the greatest impact on company culture and performance. With its model and case studies illustrating how diversity helps shape corporate culture, this book serves as a valuable resource for HR researchers and scholar-practitioners.

Tear down the obstacles to creative innovation in your organization

Unlocking Creativity is an exploration of the creative process and how organizations can clear the way for innovation. In many organizations, creative individuals face stubborn resistance to new ideas. Managers and executives oftentimes reject innovation and unconventional approaches due to misplaced allegiance to the status quo. Questioning established practices or challenging prevailing sentiments is frequently met with stiff resistance. In this climate of stifled creativity and inflexible adherence to conventional wisdom, potentially game-changing ideas are dismissed outright. Senior leaders claim to value creativity, yet often lack the knowledge to provide a creative framework. Unlocking Creativity offers effective methods and real-world examples of how the most successful organizations create cultures of innovation and experimentation.

Best-selling author and scholar Michael Roberto presents a thorough investigation of organizational obstacles to creative thought. Highly relevant to the growth crises many enterprises face in today’s economic landscape, this book examines how to break barriers to spark creativity and foster new ideas. This insightful and informative work allows business executives, senior managers, and organization leaders to:

  • Recognize the six organizational mindsets that impede creativity and innovation
  • Learn how to tear down the barriers that obstruct the creative process
  • Create an environment that allows talented people to thrive
  • Encourage creative collaboration in teams throughout an organization

Leaders do not have to conceive innovative ideas, but rather open the path for curious and creative employees within their organization. Unlocking Creativity: How to Solve Any Problem and Make the Best Decisions aids organizations in removing obstacles to the creative process and helps to form an atmosphere of imagination and innovation.
