FORTHCOMING TITLE

About the Book :- This fully revised and updated second edition of Information Systems Strategic Management continues to provide an accessible yet critical analysis of the strategic aspects of information systems. The second edition again covers the relevant practical and theoretical material of information systems, supported by extensive case studies, student activities, and problem scenarios. The ISS issues will be fully integrated into current thinking about corporate strategy, addressing the fact that a range of emerging strategic issues are often ill addressed in IS strategy books, which also fail to differentiate between IT, the application of technology, and IS, the participative, human-centred approaches to information and knowledge management. Specific changes include • Expansion and internationalisation of case studies • Broader focus beyond social and critical theory • New chapters on strategy and e-business, strategic management as a technical or social process, strategic implications of information security, applications portfolio, and technology management. The focus on strategic issues and the integration of IT and IS issues ensures this text is ideal for MBA students studying MIS, as well as being suitable for MSC students in IS/IT. Contents :- Preface. Part 1: Strategic Management and Information Systems Part 2: Key Issues in the Strategic Management of Information Systems Part 3: Information Systems Strategic Management: Lessons for the Future.

Strategic Management Dynamics builds on, and goes substantially, beyond the existing strategy textbooks with its focus on understanding and managing how organisations perform over time. Based on simple but powerful underlying principles, the book both lays out a comprehensive approach to strategy analysis, design and delivery, and connects with established frameworks in the field. In Strategic Management Dynamics Kim Warren provides a valuable teaching resource, which can be used as a core textbook to bring strategy to life. With numerous examples from different sectors, the book is supported by a rich variety of simulation-based learning materials that are essential if strategy principles are to be experienced, rather than just discussed. For those who have already learned about strategy, this book provides an important update and extension of their knowledge.

How can we ensure our strategy will succeed, especially in changing and uncertain times? The answer, as explained in Strategy Mapping for Learning Organizations, is to become a more responsive organization – one that captures its strategy in strategy maps, learns from that strategy and can adapt to deliver results. For anyone involved in managing strategy and performance, applying the powerful strategy mapping techniques will move your balanced scorecard from an operational tool to one of strategy and change. It will help you capture, communicate and manage your strategy more effectively. However, strategy can no longer be simply a top down, annual process. It needs to be more iterative, emergent and involving. Many agile organizations have adopted rolling plans and budgets. To bring greater agility into the wider strategy and performance management processes requires the tools and techniques described in Strategy Mapping for Learning Organizations. Phil Jones provides a detailed guide to developing, rolling out and managing with modern strategy maps and scorecards, building in agility and learning. His book incorporates the latest strategic thinking and models. It places the balanced scorecard in a wider governance context that includes the management of risk and environmental and social responsibility. Fully illustrated with examples from many different organizations, this book will help you deliver your strategy better.

More than a decade after Hansmann and Kraakman proclaimed the "end of history" for corporate governance, this book examines in detail whether the world has indeed moved closer towards the triumph of the shareholder value maximization model of corporate governance. Leading researchers on corporate governance from around the world offer in-depth accounts of industrialized nations such as Japan, Germany, India, Spain, Canada, Singapore, and Korea and identify the factors that lead to convergence and impediments to convergence in each of these countries. The book also analyzes how cross-listing, the adoption of governance codes, and the spread of multinationals have facilitated the process of convergence. This volume makes the case that we are neither moving towards "end of history" nor the perpetual acceleration of history, but instead towards hybridization with selective adoption and careful adaptation of governance practices by individual countries.
