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.

A pedagogical approach to the principles and architecture of knowledge management in organizations

This textbook is based on a graduate course taught at Stevens Institute of Technology. It focuses on the design and management of today’s complex K organizations. A K organization is any company that generates and applies knowledge. The text takes existing ideas from organizational design and knowledge management to enhance and elevate each through harmonization with concepts from other disciplines. The authors—noted experts in the field—concentrate on both micro- and macro design and their interrelationships at individual, group, work, and organizational levels.

A key feature of the textbook is an incisive discussion of the cultural, practice, and social aspects of knowledge management. The text explores the processes, tools, and infrastructures by which an organization can continuously improve, maintain, and exploit all elements of its knowledge base that are most relevant to achieve its strategic goals. The book seamlessly intertwines the disciplines of organizational design and knowledge management and offers extensive discussions, illustrative examples, student exercises, and visualizations. The following major topics are addressed:

  • Knowledge management, intellectual capital, and knowledge systems
  • Organizational design, behavior, and architecture
  • Organizational strategy, change, and development
  • Leadership and innovation
  • Organizational culture and learning
  • Social networking, communications, and collaboration
  • Strategic human resources; e.g., hiring K workers and performance reviews
  • Knowledge science, thinking, and creativity
  • Philosophy of knowledge and information
  • Information, knowledge, social, strategy, and contract continuums
  • Information management and intelligent systems; e.g., business intelligence, big data, and cognitive systems

Designing Knowledge Organizations takes an interdisciplinary and original approach to assess and synthesize the disciplines of knowledge management and organizational design, drawing upon conceptual underpinnings and practical experiences in these and related areas.

More Details..

Revitalising leadership connects leadership theory and practice with context. It argues that the universal prescriptions favoured by most leadership scholars ignore the reality that context always matters in leadership practice – and so it should matter in leadership theorizing too. Addressing this gap, the book offers a novel framework that enables the development of context-sensitive leadership theory and practice. This framework directs theoretical and practical attention to the key challenges for leadership in different organizational contexts. It involves developing a specific purpose for leadership in a given context, as well as formulating the values, norms and domains of action which should guide leadership efforts in that context. Determining these various matters then informs the role, responsibilities, rights, behaviours and attributes relevant to leaders and followers for that context, and the focus, purpose and boundaries of the leader-follower relationship. Deploying this framework, six in-depth illustrative theorisations are provided, showing how leadership practice might best take shape in the contexts of supervisory management; HR management; innovation and entrepreneurship; strategy; governance; and leadership studies itself.

Revitalising leadership will appeal to diverse audiences, due to its theoretical novelty, its diversity of illustrative examples, its practice-focussed orientation and its clear, engaging style. These include leadership scholars concerned with the lack of attention being paid to context in leadership theorizing; organizational scholars wanting to learn how leadership thinking can be brought to bear on the different management functions the book explores; practitioners seeking leadership ideas that are tailored to the context they lead and follow in; and those involved in MBA or leadership development programmes who are looking to combine the personal reflection sought by such programmes with a thoughtful analysis of the context in which their leadership practice takes place.

More Details..

This book describes how chief information officers (CIOs) can embrace and drive the digital transformation by providing innovative leadership that uses old skills in a novel way. The book explores ways in which new actors and factors will play a key role in this process and how new relations can be created among things, data, and people. In addition, the design of digital organizations and the implementation of digital technologies are carefully examined and it is explained how digital workspaces can be designed, organized, and used. A set of methods is provided for linking new digital tools in order to meet the goals and challenges of building a digital enterprise.

The digital economy is disrupting the way of interaction within value chains, creating fresh spaces for competition and novel ecosystems. With the advent of social media networking, mobility, big data and cloud computing, 4.0 manufacturing, etc., we are witnessing the birth of new digital organizations. However, sharing of leadership of this change among different actors can create disorder and inefficiency. Against this background, the future role of the CIO will be crucial.

More Details..

Learn the tools and best practices of Lab-as-a-Service (LaaS) to apply them to the continuous testing (CT) components of large-scale DevOps environments. CT expert Marc Hornbeek details the industry drivers, eligibility criteria, benefits, components, and best practices of LaaS solutions. He runs through the assessment, implementation, and operation phases of a typical LaaS project lifecycle.

The Continuous Testing 2.0 Toolkit applies to any industry but is especially important to the next generation of connected systems and services, as opposed to standalone applications that can be tested in relatively simple environments. Seven LaaS benefits treated at length include in time-to-market, CapEx, and OpEx reductions and improvements in security, disaster prevention and recovery, regulatory compliance, and staff productivity and retention.

The LaaS solution components presented in this book are lab consolidation, best practices, tools, virtual and cloud technologies, expertise and project management services, and KPIs. Of these six components, Hornbeek focuses particularly on tools and best practices for LaaS users and administrators. Test orchestration tools considered include those deployed in the execution of automated test cases for a selected topology. The author shows how to integrate test tools with topologies orchestration to achieve a fully automated CT environment and how to link test cases to an abstract topology so that the topology can be invoked when a test is executed. Specific tools discussed include functional test tools, software analysis tools, traffic generators, impairment injection tools, log analysis tools, and tools to tap and monitor communication circuits and protocols.


What You'll Learn

This book closely interrogates the construct of identity and the role it plays in career development. It provides guidance for HRD practitioners and researchers who create career development programs through a typology of different categories of identity, such as demographics, life events, and career histories.

 

The book presents a framework for considering and addressing career development from a critically reflective perspective of identity as a result of choice, chance, and adaptation. It offers a comprehensive understanding and awareness of tacit, nuanced, and stigmatized issues that were once shameful but have now become more socially acceptable. As a result, HRD practitioners can design programs and resources that have a richness and relevance that might heretofore be lacking. The book also offers guidance for individuals as they take charge of their own identities and career trajectories in an increasingly complex and unpredictable working environment.

More Details..

This book is a comprehensive, road-tested framework for managing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) based on years of award winning performance in senior management roles in a multinational business.

The author shows why non-financial performance indicators are just as important as financial ones when it comes to delivering performance and securing long term shareholder value. 

CSR is not window dressing, it is not a tiresome box ticking exercise and it is not a cost centre. Done properly, CSR is a cost-saving, simple everyday process that adds value to your business. While most companies already have suitable founding values and have carried out some basic CSR measures, many lack the systematics for managing the issue holistically across the business.  

Beginning with a CSR briefing paper for managers new to the area (or for providing to senior management who may need convincing) Managing Corporate Responsibility in the Real World goes on to provide a fully integrated framework for delivering a corporate responsibility programme in your organization. Drawing on real world examples and stories, Jouko Kuisma shows how to start with the political practicalities of setting up an internal steering group to analysis of your firm’s value chain and management principles before drawing up an action plan and set of performance criteria on which to be measured.

It will be useful for scholars and practitioners in identifying and remedying the endemic trend of disconnected workers and their negative impact on organizational goals.

Introducing a theory of workplace dignity into the field of management studies, this innovative new book presents an alternative paradigm based on principles of human dignity which is integrated into a theoretical approach to the topic. The author addresses and analyses the causes and consequences of the dominant political-economic paradigm within management studies. Further, it presents a theoretical alternative which can constitute a foundation for a new way of thinking about organisations, management, and leadership. Dignity in the Workplace offers scholars ideas for how research in the field of management studies may be enriched by a dignity-paradigm, and goes further to explore the role of a dignity-paradigm in the function of HR-managers and organisational leaders. Thus, the book aims to contribute to the need for alternative conceptualisations of how contemporary organisations can be managed.

More Details..

This multidisciplinary volume brings together wide-ranging empirical research that goes behind the scenes of diverse organizations dealing with business, politics, law, media, education, and sports to unravel stereotypes of discursive leadership practices as they unfold in situ. It includes contributions that explore how leadership discourse is impacted by increasing pressures of “glocalization” (the need to communicate across cultures and languages), “mediatization” (leaving ubiquitous digital traces), standardization (with quality management programmes negotiating organizational procedures), mobility (endless fast-paced long distance synchronization) and acceleration (permanent co-adaption and change). The discussion of purposefully chosen case studies moves beyond questions of who is a leader and what leaders do, to how leadership stereotypes are being challenged in various communities of practice, and thereby making change possible. Cross-cultural and interdisciplinary approaches are used to get deeper insights into the competing, multi-voiced, controversial and complex identities and relationships enacted in leadership discourse practices.

This book focuses on the emergence of new frames of political engagement underpinned by concepts in marketing, management, and organisation. It goes beyond political electioneering and campaigning and considers business theories such as market research, segmentation, social media, brand architecture, and human resources. With contributions from a range of skilled experts, Political Marketing and Management in Ghana emphasises and provides insights on the symbols-oriented approach of political campaigning in Africa, and distinguishes this from the technology-driven process of the west. Offering a total understanding of African politics and its supply and demand interactivity between key actors, this book is of great use to academics interested in political science, communications, marketing, and business and management.

This edited collection explores the variations of mentoring in India in comparison to western models, providing rich contextual interpretation and paving the way for a greater understanding of mentoring as a phenomenon. With India having the world’s largest youth population, its longstanding mentoring tradition is increasingly being replaced by emerging mentoring models in which younger generations are constantly exposed to both Indian and western influences. Paying particular attention to formal and informal mentoring models, the contributions cover the corporate sector, higher education, the developmental sector and venture capitalist-enabled entrepreneurial mentoring. Offering a uniquely non-western perspective, this innovative study also showcases both mentor and protégé perceptions of mentoring, and will be of great appeal to both practitioners and scholars of leadership.
