Neely, Megan Tobias, Hedged Out: Inequality and Insecurity on Wall Street. 336 pp. 2022:1 (U. California Pr., US) <667-621>
ISBN 978-0-520-30770-4 hard ¥4,558.- (税込) US$ 28.95

A former hedge fund worker takes an ethnographic approach to Wall Street to expose who wins, who loses, and why inequality endures. Who do you think of when you imagine a hedge fund manager? A greedy fraudster, a visionary entrepreneur, a wolf of Wall Street? These tropes capture the public imagination of a successful hedge fund manager. But behind the designer suits, helicopter commutes, and illicit pursuits are the everyday stories of people who work in the hedge fund industry-many of whom don't realize they fall within the 1 percent that drives the divide between the richest and the rest. With Hedged Out, sociologist and former hedge fund analyst Megan Tobias Neely gives readers an outsider's insider perspective on Wall Street and its enduring culture of inequality. Hedged Out dives into the upper echelons of Wall Street, where elite white masculinity is the standard measure for the capacity to manage risk and insecurity. Facing an unpredictable and risky stock market, hedge fund workers protect their interests by working long hours and building tight-knit networks with people who look and behave like them. Using ethnographic vignettes and her own industry experience, Neely showcases the voices of managers and other workers to illustrate how this industry of politically mobilized elites excludes people on the basis of race, class, and gender. Neely shows how this system of elite power and privilege not only sustains itself but builds over time as the beneficiaries concentrate their resources. Hedged Out explains why the hedge fund industry generates extreme wealth, why mostly white men benefit, and why reforming Wall Street will create a more equal society.

D.オードレッチュ他編 企業家精神的エコシステムのダイナミクス
O'Connor, Allan / Mason, C. / Miles, M. P. / Audretsch, David (eds.), The Dynamics of Entrepreneurial Ecosystems. 156 pp. 2021:12 (Routledge, UK) <667-622>
ISBN 978-1-03-215616-3 hard ¥27,192.- (税込) GB£ 120.00

This book aims to provide new approaches to analysing and thinking about how entrepreneurial ecosystems develop and evolve over time as well as shed light on the relatively unexplored area of entrepreneurship ecosystem dynamics. The concept of entrepreneurial ecosystems has emerged as a framework to understand the nature of places in which entrepreneurial activity flourishes. Time is fundamental to the analysis of the dynamics of an entrepreneurial ecosystem. New firm creation, survival, growth and demise all occur within a temporal context that is, over and within time. Systems approaches to research invariably model the influential effects of the actors and elements that shape, re-shape, maintain, shift and change the system itself. An entrepreneurial ecosystem point of view, therefore, is inherently time-dependent and provides an analytical framework that reveals how the number and diversity of entrepreneurial actors situated in a place and time influence the creation of new firms, their survival, growth, and ultimately the stability of markets and industry in a time and place. Whether for better or worse, the historic and present time dimensions underpin the functioning and trajectory of entrepreneurial ecosystem performances and how they are shaped over time. Each chapter in this edited volume outlines a particular perspective and/or a unique case drawn from a range of countries that collectively reveal the dynamics of an ever-changing entrepreneurial ecosystem. The chapters were originally published as a special issue of the journal, Entrepreneurship and Regional Development.

C.A.オーライリー他著 革新者のジレンマを解決する 第2版
O'Reilly, Charles A., III / Tushman, Michael L., Lead and Disrupt 2nd ed. (Stanford Business Books) 312 pp. 2021:9 (Stanford U. Pr., US) <667-623>
ISBN 978-1-5036-2952-3 hard ¥4,884.- (税込) US$ 30.00

Fully revised, this second edition offers a proven strategy for using ambidexterity to build discontinuous growth for mature organizations, and the flexibility to adapt in fast-changing environments. Why do successful firms find it so difficult to adapt in the face of change - to innovate? In the past ten years, the importance of this question has increased as more industries and firms confront disruptive change. The pandemic has accelerated this crisis, collapsing the structures of industries from airlines and medicine to online retail and commercial real estate. Today, leaders in business have an obligation not only to investors but to their employees and communities. At the core of this challenge is helping their organizations to survive in the face of change. The original edition summarized the lessons that the authors as researchers and consultants had learned over the previous two decades. Since then, they have continued to work with leaders of organizations around the world confronting disruptive change. With updates to every chapter, including new examples and analysis, this fully revised edition incorporates the lessons and insights that the authors have gained in the past five years. Two new chapters critically examine the role of organizational culture in promoting or hindering ambidexterity and its underlying fundamental disciplines. Using examples from firms such as Microsoft, General Motors, and Amazon, O'Reilly and Tushman illustrate how leaders can align their organization's cultures to fit the needed strategy, and how ideation, incubation, and scaling approaches, when used altogether, can successfully develop new growth businesses.

Quint, Eric / Gemser, Gerda / Calabretta, Giulia, Design Leadership Ignited: Elevating Design at Scale. (Stanford Business Books) 240 pp. 2022:2 (Stanford U. Pr., US) <667-630>
ISBN 978-1-5036-1396-6 hard ¥4,884.- (税込) US$ 30.00

Design leadership at scale requires leaders who design the design function, establish a thriving environment for the creative team, and shape the design organization to drive progress, advance innovation, and enhance meaningful customer experiences. To examine the foundations of successful design leadership, the authors performed extensive in-depth interviews with design leaders working for Fortune 500 organizations across industries. Based on these insights, Design Leadership Ignited delineates a pathway to design excellence, which includes establishing a forward-looking strategy and an adequate organizational structure for the design function, empowering the design team, and scaling the impact of design across the entire organization. This book takes the position that a core challenge in the journey towards design excellence is the need to recognize and balance the often-contradictory objectives and activities that design leaders encounter. Combining their practitioner experience and research, the authors provide a framework to embrace the complexity of design leadership that will elevate design at scale.

Vassolo, Roberto S. / Weisz, Natalia, Strategy as Leadership: Facing Adaptive Challenges in Organizations. (Stanford Business Books) 232 pp. 2022:1 (Stanford U. Pr., US) <667-639>
ISBN 978-1-5036-2913-4 hard ¥5,698.- (税込) US$ 35.00

Strategy as Leadership is about making sense of predictable but drastic changes that can alter the relationship between businesses and their competition, posing substantial leadership challenges to senior management teams. Roberto S. Vassolo and Natalia Weisz provide a framework to address and respond to these critical changes by identifying them, describing the inner tensions these changes generate, and providing guidance for their successful navigation. This outside-in approach specifies the salient leadership challenges that executives will face while mobilizing their organizations to respond effectively to competitive and environmental change. This book claims that strategy is leadership as, in this framework, these environmental changes demand shifts in strategic priorities that result in a consistent pattern of resistance. If we know that changes are occurring in the competitive environment, we can soon identify who will be most resistant to the shift in priorities necessary to address the new situation. This book is for senior management teams to enable their organizations' capabilities to adapt and address environmental changes successfully.

ISBN 978-981-12-1991-7 hard ¥9,442.- (税込) US$ 58.00

XaaS: Everything-as-a-Service: The Lean and Agile Approach to Business Growth takes the reader into the bold new world of pay-per-use for a product or service. From the perspective of the customer, the servitization model yields multiple benefits: the consumer can try out the product/service at a relatively low cost, the risk is mitigated, capital expenses can be converted into operating expenses, it is not needed to forecast how often the product/service is used, and only parts of the product/service needed can be used. Similarly, a provider can benefit by having a larger market coverage, steadier stream of revenues, upgrades as and when needed, sharing of fixed assets across consumers, practicing of value-based pricing, and unbundling or bundling utility for consumers using appropriate pricing techniques. However, this 'nanoization' of products/services is tricky, and has to be designed carefully. This book provides a set of recipes to providers to adopt the XaaS model by changing the provider's mindset: dividing the product/service forces the provider to take a value-driven approach to his product/service, and consequently, eliminate all non-value added activities. The requirements of the XaaS model serve both as an objective to the innovation and internal processes of the provider, and as guide to understanding the customer's needs. The book also covers data acquisition, data analysis and synthesis, and data application needs of the XaaS model, with simple examples and case studies from the business world of firms that achieve these objectives successfully.

Bosch, Reinoud, Power: A Key Idea for Business and Society. (Key Ideas in Business and Management) 144 pp. 2021:12 (Routledge, UK) <667-595>

ISBN 978-0-367-45645-0 paper ¥6,571.- (税込) GB£ 29.99

Power plays a central role in business and management. But what is power exactly, and what are key elements of this concept? Defining power as relative ability, this book discusses structures of power, individual power, the exercise of power, strategy, and collective power. While discussing these key components, ideas of important thinkers about power, from Plato to Foucault, Weber to Lukes, Machiavelli to Kahneman, Sun to Kotter, and Barnard to Clegg, are discussed and interpretively categorized into a toolbox of conceptual elements - what Blumer referred to as sensitizing concepts. This toolbox of sensitizing concepts allows the selection of those elements of the concept of power that provide the most constructive and effective practical understanding in particular situations. The core message behind the discussion is that knowledge of key components of the concept of power is empowering. It is empowering to learn about aspects of structures of power, individual power, the exercise of power, strategy, and collective power. Understanding such conceptual components empowers students, researchers, practitioners, and other readers to use their understanding in interpreting, theorizing about, and dealing with the complexities of power in their particular situations - without tying them to any preconceived general theories about power.

Cohendet, Patrick / Rao, Madanmohan et al. (eds.), Communities of Innovation: How Organizations Harness Collective Creativity and Build Resilience. 412 pp. 2021:4 (World Scientific, SI) <667-598>
ISBN 978-981-12-3427-9 hard ¥15,954.- (税込) US$ 98.00

This is a landmark study that tackles an important black box in innovation studies - i.e. communities of innovation. While conventional work focuses on formal organizations, a select group of academic leaders highlights the various communities that cut across firms and form the vital 'underground' for processes of creativity and ideation. While targeted toward business and management, this volume is a must-read for all social scientists interested in the dynamics underlying the current knowledge economy.'Journal of Economic GeographyThis book describes the important role played by communities in innovation processes and how organizations can benefit from it. A community brings together individuals who share a common passion for a given area of knowledge and can contribute to innovation at different levels: capitalization of good practices, problem solving, sharing of expertise, or development of new and creative ideas. The literature has progressively identified many variants of communities such as communities of practice, epistemic communities, communities of interest, virtual communities, etc. These forms of communities differ regarding the type of the specialized activities of knowledge on which they focus. As practitioners and academics increasingly emphasized the needs of collaborative approaches in innovation, they progressively challenged the traditional idea that innovation is mainly generated by hierarchical corporate departments and highlighted the active role that communities play in innovation processes. The aim of this book is to shed light, using multiple examples, on the proactive and fundamental role of communities in the new innovation practices of organizations.

Craig, Russell / Amernic, Joel, Decoding CEO-Speak. 264 pp. 2021:9 (Rotman-UTP Pub., CN) <667-600>
ISBN 978-1-4875-0595-0 hard ¥5,535.- (税込) US$ 34.95

The words of business leaders matter. They can spark action, enhance branding, share knowledge, transmit values, and influence social and cultural behavior. Decoding CEO-Speak critiques the public language of a powerful class of people - the Chief Executive Officers of major companies. Interest in the behavior and thinking of CEOs is not confined to their corporation's direct stakeholders only: the public is increasingly interested in how CEOs stand on current issues and community debate. Through case study analysis of companies such as News Corporation, BP, Wells Fargo, Satyam, Uber, Canadian National Railway, Tesla, and Boeing, authors Russell Craig and Joel Amernic illustrate ways of mining meaning or decoding a CEO's written words and speeches. They critically examine a variety of public media, including social media, testimony, and speeches, performed by leaders of major companies. Decoding CEO-Speak demonstrates how monitoring the language of CEOs can yield valuable insights into a company's policy, strategy, and ethicality; and how it can point to the priorities, values, and personality of the CEO. The book will appeal to CEOs, senior managers, and public relations and media consultants, as well as business professors, students, and corporate stakeholders who want to find otherwise disguised meaning in the words of leaders.

Everybody has a plan - until they don't. Approaching the dawn of a new decade, global sentiment in the 2020s was brimming with optimism. We would embrace the future of work, transform digitally, learn to live and breathe agility, and defeat climate change at scale.What new year's resolutions lack is specificity. 2020 turned out far beyond anyone's expectations. For once, the prophecy of profound change was accurate, except nobody expected it to arrive in the form of a global crisis like few before it. That wasn't what we asked for. Where does that leave us?The pandemic forced us to adapt markedly in the short term. Its long-term effects will be even more profound. Much of the transformation happening now has been long overdue. We're approaching a global turning point. This is our opportunity to finally realise pivotal changes we always knew mattered.It's time we reach beyond the obvious. The new normal presents a valuable opportunity to question deeper and more pervasively the way things are. When we do, we'll make evolutionary leaps towards a new and better normal. Humankind doesn't just survive adversity; it thrives on the necessary adaptation that comes with it. Big changes can become catalysts for a better world. What might that world be like?Signs of the new are already all around us. The transformation we're amidst will be more meaningful and universal than anything else we've experienced in our lifetimes. It's time we press RESET and start afresh. This is the story of how the 2020s will change modern humanity forever.Let's rewrite our future together.Related Link(s)

Euchner, James A., Lean Startup in Large Organizations: Overcoming Resistance to Innovation. 136 pp. 2022:2 (Productivity Pr., US) <667-604>
ISBN 978-1-03-220026-2 hard ¥23,793.- (税込) GB£ 105.00

Large corporations must become far more agile in implementing new products and new business models. The pace of technology change, the blurring of industry boundaries, and the agility and resources of startups in almost every industry segment demand it. Many companies have begun to adopt the principles of Lean startup but have had limited success in doing so. The principles seem intuitive and straightforward, but there are challenges to using them inside an existing company, especially in a manufacturing environment. The biggest requirements, beyond those espoused for startups, are: Developing a business model that fits the assets and constraints of the corporation, in addition to achieving product-market fit. Managing the conflicts that inevitably arise with the "performance engine," that is, with the current operating business; every business that has operated over decades has well-established ways of doing things that may not fit the required pace of a new venture. Managing the risk of investing in a venture in a new area for a company used to investing where the risks are more clearly understood. Conducting Lean iterate-and-test cycles with physical goods as well as software offerings (for manufacturing firms) This book describes a systematic approach to implementing Lean Startup in large organizations. It builds on the principles of Lean startup and adds additional practices required to manage the realities of the corporate context. This book essentially describes how it is done. It is based on elements of practice developed by leading academics and practitioners in the corporate world, and it brings together the pieces in a practical and integrated way. It includes a case study of the approach in practice at Goodyear Tire & Rubber company, which has used it to launch businesses on three continents. The model for Lean startup in Large organizations is organized around the six more or less distinct stages required to move from a new concept to a new business inside a large organization.

ISBN 978-981-12-2410-2 hard ¥22,466.- (税込) US$ 138.00

Today Learning Organizations are shaped by collective knowledge and the existence of teams and groups of people that are continuously developing their capacity and ability to create results. Knowledge-based organizations understand the importance of continually learning at all levels and facilitate learning for their members through empowering people, encouraging collaboration, and promoting open dialogue. Organizational management issues have become strategic and fundamental in the collection and sharing of data and information and are recognized as challenging to both public and private organizations around the world. This has created the need to knowledge governance mechanisms to support Knowledge Management practices in organizations.For this governance, the mechanisms and procedures that encompass Knowledge Management, advancing beyond the traditional Corporate Governance (CorpGov) model, have been consolidated into a new governance model described as Knowledge Governance (KGov). Such model considers the processes of the knowledge related to the use, creation, retention, integration and sharing. In order to implement governance, it is essential to develop competencies and establish corporate policies and structures focusing on respect for common interests and collective goals. In this context, mechanisms must be created for the creation, sharing, storage and transfer of knowledge, making changes happen in synergy and adding value to the organization as a whole.The book covers the newly emerging area of knowledge governance and Learning Organizations and expands our understanding of Learning Organizations and their ability to acquire, create and share knowledge while continually examining organizational behavioral issues affecting their productivity.

Grady, Victoria / McCreesh, Patrick, Stuck: How to WIN in Business by Understanding LOSS. 216 pp. 2022:3 (Productivity Pr., US) <667-606>
ISBN 978-0-367-74362-8 hard ¥20,394.- (税込) GB£ 90.00
ISBN 978-0-367-74361-1 paper ¥5,438.- (税込) GB£ 24.99

Stuck: How to WIN in Business By Understating LOSS addresses a critical concept that closes a gap in popular business publications. Many books tell leaders and managers the process of how to change their organizations. However, many of these books lack a key mechanism for understanding human interactions. The mechanism is a biological function developed through evolution called attachment - the human need to connect to different tangible and intangible objects for support. Attachment is the reason that people connect with leaders and corporate culture, but also what creates a deep sense of loss during even the smallest changes. Stuck offers a complete understanding of attachment and how it impacts individuals, relationships, and organizations. It is based in over 20 years of research and practical experience; data from nearly than 20,000 respondents globally; and findings from two previous books (The Pivot Point and Workplace Attachment) and over 60 articles and presentations. But Stuck is not an academic study. It is a practical guide for leading the brain through change. For the first time, the authors tell stories that demonstrate the research and offering a prescriptive roadmap for how to leverage attachment research to drive business success. Work is changing. Every day new companies, technologies, and ideas emerge that impact how, where, and most importantly, why we work. Despite this exciting evolution, people remain the heart of change. People are tricky. People don't seem to evolve as fast as our global environment. We get stuck. Leaders, managers, and teammates struggle with the resistance and get frustrated. Frustrated people impact the performance of every organization. The authors set out to answer a seemingly simple question - How does understanding loss help us achieve business wins? They believe that the answer is a deeply human problem. In fact, it is a deeply biological problem. It is rooted in our brain and the way our brain interacts everything in the world, even work. It is how our brain controls our interactions with technology, our connection with peers, our perception of leaders, the way we view our organization, and even our connection to the community where we live. All of these factors impact how we perform as individuals at work and ultimately how organizations perform in the global marketplace. The root of the challenge is the human need to connect to different tangible and intangible objects for support. The basis of the need for support is grounded in our need for attachment. Attachment behavior is an instinctual response born out of our earliest days of life and impacts how we connect and interact with the world around us. Those who learn to understand loss through attachment behavior and the attachments of others will succeed. The book is based on over 20 years of research into attachment in the workplace. Stuck is a set of fascinating literature that is brought forward through highlighting the stories (ironically) we have grown accustomed to "leaning on" for answers. Additionally, this book will provide original data-based evidence from assessments conducted with nearly 20,000 respondents and original stories from the application of attachment concepts in more than 150 organizations across all sectors around the globe. It will shine a light on attachment and use it as a lens to better understand our workplace. Stuck provides not only the deep lessons from the authors' research, but also prescriptive steps for readers to use the lessons of attachment in their own work. In this way, the book will serve as a guide to those leaders, managers, and employees who are feeling stuck and don't know how to get loose.

Handfield, Rob / Linton, Tom, Flow: How the Best Supply Chains Thrive. 256 pp. 2022:2 (Rotman-UTP Pub., CN) <667-607>
ISBN 978-1-4875-0832-6 hard ¥5,860.- (税込) US$ 36.95

This book describes the idea of FLOW, which relates back to the physical properties that exist in nature, specifically to the field of thermodynamics, the flow of electricity, the flow of data, the evolutionary flows of rivers, and the frictionless flow of materials. However, in the realm of business management, FLOW also refers to supply chain revolution, involving the integration of end-to-end supply chains, and the geographic relocation of global supply base. Achieving flow is essential for organizations seeking to improve their supply chain outcomes. This book highlights the high-level effectiveness of business strategies that use predictions based on the sequence of world events, global supply chains, and data between smart technologies. By broadly applying physical laws to the global supply chain, Rob Handfield and Tom Linton explore the impact of supply chain physics on global market policies, such as tariffs, factory location, pandemic response, supply base geographies, and outsourcing. Flow adheres to the laws of motion as guideposts for decision-making in network design, sourcing decisions, factory location, management and training, and a host of other key decisions. Chapters provide specific recommendations on what to do to improve supply chain movement, and includes important insights for managers along with engaging interviews with companies including Biogen, General Motors, Siemens, and Flex on their response to COVID-19. Flow is an important resource for management teams hoping to elevate the enterprise-level success of their organizations.

Holmqvist, Mikael, Elite Business Schools: Education and Consecration in Neoliberal Society. (Routledge Advances in Management Learning and Education) 232 pp. 2021:12 (Routledge, UK) <667-608>
ISBN 978-1-03-211033-2 hard ¥27,192.- (税込) GB£ 120.00

Social scientists are paying increasing attention to the business and financial elites: There's a great need to understand who these elites are, what they do, and what makes them tick, as individuals but also as a class. By examining elite business schools, the institutions that train and prepare people to assume important leadership and decision-making positions in business, finance and related sectors, we may also learn how the economic elites are made. A key argument in this book is that elite schools are known to create powerful groups in society, offering them the intellectual and analytical means to act as leaders, but, most importantly, the social, moral and aesthetic skills that are deemed necessary to exercise power; in all essential respects elite schools consecrate people. By dominating much of higher education today, and by doing so in a way that creates and reproduces a market-based organization and control of society, elite business schools represent certain interests and ideologies that affect the lives of most people. In understanding how the modern economy is run, elite business schools, therefore, represent critical study objects. This book, based on an in-depth study of the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE), offers a sociological analysis of the world of elite business schools. Specifically, this book examines the consecration of SSE's students from a number of perspectives and in a number of situations, focusing on student union activities, school culture, faculty behavior, teaching, courses and alumni events, noting the symbolic importance of economics and particularly the school's unique relation among the world's business schools to the Nobel Prize. The book addresses the topics with regards to the sociology of elites, management education and organizational studies and will be of interest to researchers, academics, and students also interested in business history, higher education studies, and sociology of education.

Kelly, Richard, The Nature of Business Transformation: A Swarm Intelligent Approach to Reinventing Organisations. 272 pp. 2022:2 (Routledge, UK) <667-610>
ISBN 978-1-03-210496-6 hard ¥27,192.- (税込) GB£ 120.00
ISBN 978-1-03-210498-0 paper ¥7,704.- (税込) GB£ 34.99

This book is a practical guide for business professionals to develop and improve business intelligence and collective decision making within their organisation. It proposes a progressive reconfiguration of the traditional business operating system using a nature-inspired framework called swarm facilitation that enables and facilitates collective decision-making. Problem solving and decision making within organisations has followed the same rigid formula for over 100 years. It is dominated by centralised governance and pyramid decision making. Such an approach is no longer fit for purpose in an environment of employee disengagement, AI/superintelligence and Covid-19 fallout. By the end of this book, readers will be able to: * solve organisational problems and challenges collectively using swarm intelligence; * upgrade and futureproof business operating systems to reflect a more collective decision-making approach fit for the new connected economy and Industry 4.0; * embrace mindset quotients that support people working in a more networked, self-organising and collective environment. The book is important reading for leaders and managers who are focused on building organisational capital and engagement and gaining value from the emerging technology by evolving their business operating system into a digital ecosystem as part of an ongoing digital transformation strategy. It will also appeal to experts working in the field of organisational change and development, both within the organisation and as consultants.

ISBN 978-1-03-218416-6 hard ¥27,192.- (税込) GB£ 120.00

Navigating the volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) characterizing the business world in the 21st century requires a new paradigm focused on an integrated bottom line - planet, people, and profit (PPP). Global trends include resource scarcity and growing inequities in income, wealth, education, and healthcare. Stakeholders are demanding that organizations address systemic barriers to promote justice and equity within organizations and across broader social systems. Transformational change requires leadership to analyze internal and external systems through a social and environmental justice lens. Despite a growing focus on justice, equity, diversity and inclusion, the imbalance of power remains within our institutions, organizations, and social systems. To move the needle, leaders can turn to Driving Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, which explains developing a North Star vision and creating a strategy to redesign organizational process and systems, as well as leveraging tools for data-driven decision-making. It presents a framework to build an inclusive organization as well as a model to engage and support senior and middle management beginning the process of capacity building and systemic change. By layering in AI and other technologies to support data-driven decision-making, the book guides leaders in navigating their organization's journey along the maturity continuum to achieve their North Star vision of becoming a just and equitable organization. The book also helps managers to: Assess ecosystems and organizational systems that justice, equity, diversity and inclusion impact Take a deeper dive into transformational and operational components to gain insights on the deep systemic realignment of the North Star vision Identify and engage with diverse stakeholders to gain perspective and understand issues crucial for transformative change Leverage people centered design to create a process promoting diversity of voices and to better align outcomes with shared organizational vision Use data to drive decision-making and reduce bias by removing intuition from the decision-making process Leverage the book's frameworks to drive collaborative systemic change Adapt insights highlighted in multiple interviews with DEI practitioners Benefit form lessons learned and best practices featured in the book's case studies. This book features a primer, which is a quick reference guide to key terms, concepts, and definitions. It helps to define justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion and other key terms, such as unconscious bias, stereotypes, and microaggressions. Another feature is a toolkit, which includes checklists to help managers lead organizations to realize their own North Star vision.

Lenox, Michael / Duff, Rebecca, The Decarbonization Imperative: Transforming the Global Economy by 2050. (Stanford Business Books) 288 pp. 2021:10 (Stanford U. Pr., US) <667-616>
ISBN 978-1-5036-1478-9 hard ¥4,558.- (税込) US$ 28.00

Time is of the essence. Climate change looms as a malignant force that will reshape our economy and society for generations to come. If we are going to avoid the worst effects of climate change, we are going to need to effectively "decarbonize" the global economy by 2050. This doesn't mean a modest, or even a drastic, improvement in fuel efficiency standards for automobiles. It means 100 percent of the cars on the road being battery-powered or powered by some other non-carbon-emitting powertrain. It means 100 percent of our global electricity needs being met by renewables and other non-carbon-emitting sources such as nuclear power. It means electrifying the global industrials sector and replacing carbon-intensive chemical processes with green alternatives, eliminating scope-one emissions-emissions in production-across all industries, particularly steel, cement, petrochemicals, which are the backbone of the global economy. It means sustainable farming while still feeding a growing global population. Responding to the existential threat of climate change, Michael Lenox and Rebecca Duff propose a radical reconfiguration of the industries contributing the most, and most harmfully, to this planetary crisis. Disruptive innovation and a particular calibration of industry dynamics will be key to this change. The authors analyze precisely what this might look like for specific sectors of the world economy-ranging from agriculture to industrials and building, energy, and transportation-and examine the possible challenges and obstacles to introducing a paradigm shift in each one. With regards to existent business practices and products, how much and what kind of transformation can be achieved? The authors assert that markets are critical to achieving the needed change, and that they operate within a larger scale of institutional rules and norms. Lenox and Duff conclude with an analysis of policy interventions and strategies that could move us toward clean tech and decarbonization by 2050.

Li, Bo / Song, Dong-ping (eds.), Dual-Channel Supply Chain Decisions with Risk-averse Behavior. 240 pp. 2021:9 (World Scientific, SI) <667-617>
ISBN 978-1-80061-039-2 hard ¥14,326.- (税込) US$ 88.00 *

In the era of e-commerce and digitalization, new commercial patterns and opportunities are emerging. For example, in addition to traditional reselling marketing channels, manufacturers can easily open direct channels using a variety of digital marketing strategies. These new marketing channels will cause conflict and competition between manufacturers and resellers. This raises the important question of how to make optimal decisions for multiple players in dual-channel supply chain contexts. Within changing and uncertain operation environments, business enterprises must face tougher challenges than before to survive in competitive markets.This book aims to address representative decision-making problems in dual-channel supply chains with risk-averse channel members. The most recently developed risk assessment technique, Conditional Value-at-Risk (CVaR), will be adopted as the predominant criterion to measure the risk-averse attitude. Based on game theory, important issues such as channel selection, pricing, order quantity, manufacturer encroachment, greening strategy, consumer return policies, financing strategies, channel coordination, contract design, information asymmetry, and capacity constraint will be modeled and analyzed. This book will help readers better understand operations management in dual-channel supply chain contexts with risk-averse behaviors, and will also provide effective techniques and tools for researchers and offer managerial insights for practitioners.
