Iszatt-White, Marian, Leadership as Stewardship: Honouring Our Past While Ensuring Our Future. (New Horizons in Leadership Studies) 192 pp. 2024:8 (E. Elgar, UK) <722-314>
ISBN 978-1-03-531941-1 hard ¥23,655.- (税込) GB£ 85.00

Exploring different understandings of stewardship across a range of research domains and cultures, this insightful book examines the tensions between competing perspectives and their implications for leadership. Marian Iszatt-White proposes 'leadership-as-stewardship' as a new signifier for leadership research, providing practical guidance to leaders navigating the challenges and trade-offs of the Anthropocene.Leadership as Stewardship identifies how the apparent inadequacy of modern leadership coincides with a shift in scholarship away from practical inquiry and towards a range of aspirational approaches, including authentic, sustainable, responsible and ethical. Iszatt-White proposes stewardship as an alternative to these aspirational forms of leadership and challenges the ability of Western, Enlightenment-based thinking to solve global issues created by that same thinking. The book concludes that it is time to place the more enact-able construct of stewardship at the heart of leadership aspirations and scholarly activities.Interdisciplinary in scope, this book will be vital for scholars of leadership, management and organization studies. Highlighting the ability of stewardship to combat perceived failings in leadership as both a construct and a practice, it is also valuable to policymakers, management educators and leadership practitioners.

Jack, Gavin / Evans, Michelle / Lythberg, B. et al. (eds.), Managing the Post-Colony: Voices from Aotearoa, Australia and The Pacific. (Managing the Post-Colony) 255 pp. 2024:5 (Springer, GW) <722-315>
ISBN 978-981-9703-18-0 hard ¥37,484.- (税込) EUR 159.99

This edited book is the second in the book series "Managing the Post-Colony". The book series is co-edited by Nimruji Jammulamadaka (IIM Calcutta, India) and Gavin Jack (Monash University, Australia). The book series seeks to present cutting-edge, critical, interdisciplinary, and geographically and culturally diverse perspectives on the contemporary nature, experience, and theorisation of managing and organising under conditions of postcoloniality. This book specifically presents voices and perspectives from Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, and The Pacific, locations with shared and distinctive histories and present-day experiences of colonisation and imperialism. Ways of managing, organising, and doing business in these places demonstrate cultural continuity and change in such histories, present sites of postcolonial struggle, and diverse prospects for self-determined future-making. The book explores struggles and prospects of managing in the post-colony through qualitative empirical cases, historical and legal studies, conceptual essays and provocations, and interviews with Indigenous business leaders. It contributes to the ongoing diversification, provincialisation, and decolonisation of management and organisation studies and practice. A strong focus is placed on diverse Indigenous knowledges and experiences, including those of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Pasifika, and Maori peoples, and insights into the capacity for Indigenous culture-specific modes of business to offer decolonising futures.

Kinley, Nik / Ben-Hur, Shlomo, Re-writing your Leadership Code: How your Childhood Made You the Leader You Are, and What You Can Do About It. 211 pp. 2024:3 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-317>
ISBN 978-3-031-52394-6 hard ¥7,728.- (税込) EUR 32.99

Where do your instincts come from and how can you improve them? Stretched by heavy workloads and facing ever more complex environments, leaders increasingly find themselves running on automatic and relying on their instincts. But depending on instincts is a bit like gambling, and as a result, stress levels, mistakes and failure rates are all on the up. In this ground-breaking book, leadership experts Nik Kinley and Shlomo Ben-Hur reveal how our instincts are the products of childhood experience - lessons learnt that have become written into the structure of our brains. Like the source code at the centre of a computer, they underpin almost every aspect of our functioning as leaders. They affect how we interpret and experience things, how we react to events, the environments we choose, the impact we have on people, and even the responses we trigger in others. Often these instincts and tendencies are hidden beneath professional poise. But under pressure, when we are deprived of time, they come to the fore. This is why leading under pressure can bring out the best and the worst in us. And it is why - ultimately - leadership is a test of the character of our instinctual code. Based on decades of research, this book shows how we get to be the leaders we are today. It explains the tendencies and inclinations that past experiences can leave us with and the hidden ways in which they can affect who we are as leaders and how we behave. And crucially, it shows how we can make better use of our instincts and even improve them to become better leaders.

Kreutzer, Ralf T., The Path to Sustainable Corporate Management: How to Take Responsibility for People, the Environment and the Economy. 305 pp. 2024:5 (Springer, GW) <722-318>
ISBN 978-3-658-43973-6 paper ¥16,397.- (税込) EUR 69.99

This book shows how managers at all levels of the company can master the challenges of sustainable corporate management with confidence. Concrete action plans are presented for this purpose. Climate change and the finite nature of natural resources are already taking their toll worldwide. A rethink towards ecological sustainability is not only urgently needed at a global level. The orientation of corporate strategies is also increasingly determined by the socio-political morals of customers and other stakeholders, where economic and socio-political interests must be in harmony with social and ecological challenges. Using the three-pillar model for sustainability (Triple Bottom Line) and further topics (such as supply chain law and ESG criteria), the author shows in a practical way how companies can successfully meet these major challenges in the long term. The key to success lies in a change in values towards ecological, social and economic sustainability that is defined and practiced at all levels of the company.

Liening, Andreas, Complexity and Entrepreneurship: Complexity Research and Its Implications on Entrepreneurship Processes. 640 pp. 2024:5 (Springer, GW) <722-320>
ISBN 978-3-658-44031-2 paper ¥25,769.- (税込) EUR 109.99

Starting from the question of what systematic peculiarities in the behavior of leaders and entrepreneurs need to be considered, this book provides a new theoretical perspective for entrepreneurial analysis, evaluation, decision-making, and action. Various theories of complex systems, such as the theory of self-organization (synergetics), are presented. Additionally, methodological approaches for the empirical examination of complexity and the resulting consequences in the field of entrepreneurship are discussed. Overall, it suggests that old models like the Laplacean worldview or Kant's question of what we can know need to be reconsidered. This book offers surprising answers, particularly revealing new opportunities and possibilities in complex processes like starting a business.The second expanded and updated edition strengthens the focus on entrepreneurship as the book's main theme. It includes new and current examples from the real economy, as well as additional empirical data supporting the model analysis.The second expanded and updated edition strengthens the focus on entrepreneurship as the book's main theme.

MacKenzie, Bob / Warwick, Rob (eds.), The Impact of a Regional Business School on its Communities: A Holistic Perspective. (Humanism in Business Series) 382 pp. 2024:4 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-324>
ISBN 978-3-031-47253-4 hard ¥37,484.- (税込) EUR 159.99

The place and impact of large, elite business schools is hotly debated. Compared to such establishments, little has been written about smaller, regional, community-oriented business schools that serve and interact with their various communities at home or abroad.Focusing on one of the smaller regional business schools in the UK, and incorporating perspectives from further afield, this book seeks to redress that balance. This local focus enables a more holistic understanding of what really goes on in terms of the complex relationships, practices, challenges and contexts at play in such an arena. The book, conceived throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, reverberates with a multiplicity of voices, perspectives and narratives, and reflects a process of collaborative autoethnography and critical friendship. It will be of great value to academics, students and others who are interested in optimising the benefits of regional business schools around the world.

確率最適化モデル-工学とオペレーションズ・リサーチにおける応用 第4版
Marti, Kurt, Stochastic Optimization Methods: Applications in Engineering and Operations Research. 4th ed. 384 pp. 2024:4 (Springer, GW) <722-325>
ISBN 978-3-031-40058-2 hard ¥32,798.- (税込) EUR 139.99

This book examines optimization problems that in practice involve random model parameters. It outlines the computation of robust optimal solutions, i.e., optimal solutions that are insensitive to random parameter variations, where appropriate deterministic substitute problems are needed. Based on the probability distribution of the random data and using decision theoretical concepts, optimization problems under stochastic uncertainty are converted into corresponding deterministic problems.Due to the probabilities and expectations involved, the book also shows how to apply approximative solution techniques. Several deterministic and stochastic approximation methods are provided: Taylor expansion methods, regression and response surface methods (RSM), probability inequalities, multiple linearization of survival/failure domains, discretization methods, convex approximation/deterministic descent directions/efficient points, stochastic approximation and gradient procedures, and differentiation formulas for probabilities and expectations.The fourth edition of this classic text has been carefully and thoroughly revised. It includes new chapters on the solution of stochastic linear programs by discretization of the underlying probability distribution, and on solving deterministic optimization problems by means of controlled random search methods and multiple random search procedures. It also presents a new application of stochastic optimization methods to machine learning problems with different loss functions. For the computation of optimal feedback controls under stochastic uncertainty, besides the open-loop feedback procedures, a new method based on Taylor expansions with respect to the gain parameters is presented. The book is intended for researchers and graduate students who are interested in stochastics, stochastic optimization, and control. It will also benefit professionals and practitioners whose work involves technical, economicand/or operations research problems under stochastic uncertainty.

Moskowitz, Sanford L. / Erickson, Chris, Managing Technology from Laboratory to Marketplace: Cheating the Valley of Death. (Management for Professionals) 201 pp. 2024:4 (Springer, GW) <722-328>
ISBN 978-3-031-51420-3 hard ¥21,083.- (税込) EUR 89.99

Managing Technology from Laboratory to Marketplace outlines the process of getting innovative research out of the laboratory and into the market, a path which is often fraught with challenges. Many research projects meet their end as they attempt to cross this so-called "valley of death"--the period between the research phase of a project and the point when the new product or process emerging from that research becomes commercialized and enters the market. Firstly, this book aims to better understand how and why projects succeed in entering the market while others falter. Second, it uses these insights to guide researchers to optimize their chances of successfully making that transition, and finding their place in the market. The book primarily uses case studies from the field of advanced materials, but can be used by any researcher making the transition from laboratory to marketplace.

Boccardelli, Paolo / Brunetta, Federica, Leadership and Strategic Management: Decision-Making in Times of Change. (Routledge Focus on Business and Management) 88 pp. 2024:5 (Routledge, UK) <721-228>
ISBN 978-1-03-259800-0 hard ¥13,633.- (税込) GB£ 48.99

Managers are facing unprecedented complexity, volatility and ambiguity, quickly adapting their decision-making, leadership, vision, and strategies. Megatrends and forces of change have profound implications for business models, processes and organizational structures, calling into question current paradigms and designing future change. Additionally, unprecedented disruptions, unforecastable in their nature, have increased the need for resilience and strategic flexibility.The book aims at tackling the potential interrelations among environmental transformations, strategic decisions, and leadership, to better understand the role of external and internal factors on the effectiveness of managers.The book defines "change": its extent, nature and characteristics. Then, it focuses on decision-making, the role of potential cognitive biases and how the interaction with the perception of determined environmental events affects the way in which decision-makers decide to implement specific strategies. Finally, in the light of waves of strategic change, it reviews theories on leadership and transformation, by looking at the role and traits of leaders.Since environmental transformations have the potential to "disrupt" not only strategies but also decision-making processes and leadership, the book provides a review on the issue and propose an integrative framework which can be useful for both scholars and managers, especially in the fields of decision-making and strategy.

ISBN 978-1-03-259480-4 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This book provides an overview of the opportunities and risks of digitalisation, and the platforms that embody it and constitute society's new infrastructure. From a management point of view-defined here as the steering of organised and finalised collective action-understanding this major socio-technical disruption is paramount. The book helps to comprehend its main players, such as the American GAFAM, their power and its sources, their architecture, and their impact on different industries and professions, labour markets, companies and education.Responding to the dominance of tech giants, numerous initiatives are striving to regulate their influence, safeguard democratic sovereignty, promote fair competition in the digital sphere, and employ frugal digitalisation methods to counteract detrimental aspects of these "oligopolistic" platforms. In essence, shouldn't the overarching aim of digitalisation be to foster community development, strengthen individual and collective capabilities, and preserve the environment, while producing goods and services to meet shared societal interests? Throughout the four sections of this book and its sixteen chapters, actors in the digital process, and/or academics, provide analyses and illustrations of the great digital transformation, examining the ways in which socio-technical advances can be created or used for the benefit of all, while avoiding major risks.

Everybody wants their employer to recognise and value the skills and attributes they have, but not everybody feels those skills are valued. Entrepreneurial Attributes: Accessing Your Inner Entrepreneur for Business and Beyond looks at the link between skills, actions and attributes, and the value they present: value in terms of how an employee can be more valuable to the company they work for; in essence more employable. The book aims to answer the question - why are entrepreneurial attributes we see in businesspeople valued, but in non-businesspeople they are sometimes not recognised when there is a clear link between entrepreneurial skills and attributes, human capital (effectively your CV) and how successfully a company performs?Entrepreneurial Attributes: Accessing Your Inner Entrepreneur for Business and Beyond discusses how we currently view skills, actions and attributes, and how those attributes add value to a person in life and to a business that person works for. The author questions whether certain skills and actions are unrecognised or neglected in today's world, and uses case studies and research methodologies to illustrate how value can be recognised and appreciated within the context of human capital and firm performance. Finally, the book offers tools and strategies which may assist the reader in gaining a better understanding of the way in which their entrepreneurial actions and attributes can enhance their value as a person, and also make them more employable. This book also offers businesses tools to better recognise and reward the skills it needs.The ideal audience for this book are those of us who wish to better evidence the skills and value we can offer a company; Entrepreneurial Attributes: Accessing Your Inner Entrepreneur for Business and Beyond will find an appreciative audience wherever there is a keen interest in the recognition and value of employee skills and attributes.

Delbourg-Delphis, Marylene, Beyond Eureka!: The Rocky Roads to Innovating. 392 pp. 2024:5 (Georgetown U. Pr., US) <721-232>
ISBN 978-1-64712-422-9 hard ¥6,457.- (税込) US$ 29.95

A radical new perspective on innovation to help aspiring entrepreneurs avoid common pitfalls One of the biggest problems faced by entrepreneurs and corporate executives alike is the conflation of entrepreneurship with innovation. The quest for innovation is often misguided by a variety of mantras, cliches and proclamations, often infused with notions of disruption and delusions of grandeur. Beyond Eureka! debunks the myths and conventional wisdom surrounding innovation, revealing its complex, non-linear nature and identifying ways to avoid common pitfalls. Serial entrepreneur Delbourg-Delphis first defines innovation as the implementation of something new that is developed for and commercialized in a marketplace. She uses various case studies--both smaller scale and well-known-to unpack the common misconceptions surrounding innovation and guide entrepreneurs through the uncertainty of innovating in a potential market rather than a pre-existing one. Beyond Eureka! brings a new perspective to understanding the nature and practice of innovation based on the author's extensive experience, historical knowledge, and conceptual analysis. Innovators, whether entrepreneurs or the strategic leadership teams of established companies, will benefit from the insights and guidance.

This book delves into the dynamic field of start-up and entrepreneurial communication, addressing a significant research gap.Start-up and entrepreneurial communication is a critical practice for organizations in their early stages of development. Characterized by their innovative and growth-oriented nature, these organizations often find themselves in a constant state of re-evaluation and reinvention. As such, the competencies within these organizations frequently struggle to match the real-time changes. Addressing this gap, this book provides scientifically sound answers to defining and systematizing start-up and entrepreneurial communication. It delves into central areas of discourse, exploring the intricate balance between a start-up's brand, identity, and strategic communication, as well as the crucial role of internal communication. Additionally, the book offers insights into the highly innovative realm of crowdfunding, complementing its comprehensive exploration of start-up communication.This volume will be a key resource for scholars, students and practitioners in the emerging field of entrepreneurial and start-up communication.

Although some people had considerable doubts about the usefulness of such solutions in the past, AI plays a growing role in modern business. It can be expected that the interest in it will also lead to an increase in supporting the planning, evaluation and implementation of projects. In particular, the proper functioning of multifaceted evaluation methods has a crucial impact on the appropriate planning and execution of various types of projects, as well as the effective achievement of the organization's goals. This book offers a presentation of complex problems and challenges related to the development of AI in project management, proposing an integrated approach to knowledge-based evaluation and indicating the possibilities of improving professional practical knowledge in this field.The unique contribution of this book is to draw attention to the possibilities resulting from conducting transdisciplinary research and drawing on the rich achievements in the field of research development on knowledge-based systems that can be used to holistically support the processes of planning, evaluation and project management. The concept of the integrated approach to knowledge-based evaluation is presented, developed as a result of drawing inspiration from the systems approach, praxeology and selected AI mathematical models.Presented in a highly accessible manner, the book discusses mathematical tools in a simple way, which enables understanding of the content by readers across broad subject areas who may be not only participants of specialist training and university students but also practitioners, consultants, or evaluators. Supported by pedagogical features, this book will be a valuable resource for academics and upper-level students in particular across project management related fields and of great interest to all those looking to understand the challenges and effectiveness of AI in business.

Kalyva, Eve / Katsaridou, Iro / Bianchi, Pamela (eds.), Museums and Entrepreneurship: The Effects of Capitalising on Culture in the 21st Century. 224 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-235>
ISBN 978-1-03-246369-8 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

Museums and Entrepreneurship: The Effects of Capitalising on Culture in the 21st Century addresses the largely under-examined impact that different entrepreneurial endeavours have on museum practices today.It identifies an entrepreneurial turn in today's neoliberal context, and critically evaluates how this turn redefines museums in organisational, conceptual and empirical terms. It assesses the challenges that different types of museums face, examining how they are conceptualised, managed and experienced in order to remain financially viable while also remaining relevant to the communities they should serve. It brings to the fore the dynamic relationships formed across corporate sponsors, private collectors, cultural administrators and local communities that shape today's museum practices in a global context. Evidence-based in its approach and with case studies from Europe, the USA, South America and China, this volume engages with entrepreneurship across theory and practice, and combines perspectives from museum studies, curating, exhibition design, business and management.Shedding new light on discussions around cultural branding, sponsorship, the politics of display and experience economy, and highlighting the importance of resilience, decolonisation and social responsibility, Museums and Entrepreneurship is essential reading for students and researchers in museum and heritage studies, curatorial studies, arts and heritage management, and business.

Letiche, Hugo / De Loo, Ivo / Cordery, C. et al. (eds.), Accountability Research: Ethnographic Methods in Organisation and Accounting. (Business for Society) 312 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-236>
ISBN 978-1-03-244289-1 hard ¥38,962.- (税込) GB£ 140.00

This book discusses (auto-)ethnographies of accountability, undertaken (in close collaboration) by a multinational group of accounting and organization theory researchers over a period of three years. The key assumption underlying the book is that accountability is inherently an identity creating process where the study of account-making has to be done participatively, with radical openness to the one(s) being researched, as well as to their context. That openness we call 'ethnography'. The values or assumptions inherent to the practices of account- and identity-making, in a specific context, are what (auto-)ethnographies seek to describe and identify. These values and assumptions warrant critical, ethical reflection, and this is what the researchers presented here have tried to provide.The chapters in this book all are mini-studies of relatedness. The scale of examination is intimate; the reflections provided by the researchers are mainly methodological.This book is of interest to accounting and organization theory students and scholars who believe that accountability can fruitfully be studied through (auto-)ethnography. The book sheds a different light on how accountability can be handled and discharged between researchers and their researched, when local, intimate settings are studied.
