The rate of commercial construction in a cross-section of American cities 1957-1958 by Joseph L Bower( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This memorandum describes an econometric crosssection study of investment in commercial construction in the United States during 1957 and 1958. It develops a structural model of the two principal sectors of the commercial-construction industry -- office buildings and retail stores -and fits the model to cross-section data describing office construction in 13 standard metropolitan statistical areas (SMSA's) and store construction in 18 SMSA's. The model used expresses the rate of investment in commercial construction as a function of revenue and cost conditions. Because measures of revenue are not always available, proxies for demand are substituted in some cases. Least-squares regression analysis confirms the model's usefulness in explaining city-to-city variations in commercial construction. Several problems with the data preclude a fully successful conclusion in any statistical sense, however. The most serious are the traditional cross-section size problem, and a lack of measures over certain important but largely qualitative aspects of the market. These problems are discussed and suggestions made on how they might be resolved in future work. To the extent that they are important problems, the fitted models remain a preliminary effort. (Author)

Leadership is a choice the general manager in the middle by Joseph L Bower( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does a general manager operate successfully when the responsibilities of the job are often in conflict? What does it mean to choose to be a leader? Stationed at the crossroads between the corporation and the operating units, middle managers are measured on their ability to motivate others to perform. In this presentation, Professor Joseph Bower provides practical guidelines for becoming a successful manager in the middle. General managers must be strong leaders and strategists, organization builders, and performers. They must learn which battles to fight, while developing and maintaining positive working relationships. In order to expand their jobs, they must understand the limits of the territory while taking aggressive risks. Shouldered with a challenging mix of financial and process management responsibilities, the middle manager must create an environment where staff can succeed. The complete general manager is a leader who is at ease in an imperfect world; is diplomatic, energetic, self-confident, and fun. Are you ready to choose to lead?
