Most widely held works by Sumantra Ghoshal
Managing across borders the transnational solution by Christopher A Bartlett( )
89 editions published between 1989 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 3,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With deregulation, privatization, and information technology transforming competition, the transnational model continually evolves. In a timely response to this dynamically changing business world, Bartlett and Ghoshal revisit their breakthrough concepts, updating the material with fresh examples drawn from today's leading global enterprises." "The second edition of Managing Across Borders builds on the authors' ongoing exploration of the transnational, with their current research extending and illuminating the findings of their earlier work. An entirely new section, "The Transformation Challenge," focuses on how several companies have implemented the book's concepts. We see firsthand the obstacles and opportunities to building an effective transnational organization. This new edition also includes an application handbook, a highly practical tool that helps readers translate the book's ideas into real-world action plans for their companies."--Jacket
The individualized corporation : a fundamentally new approach to management : great companies are defined by purpose, process, and people by Sumantra Ghoshal( Book )
46 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 1,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Without proposing a universal solution or a quick-fix prescription, The Individualized Corporation describes in practical detail not only the "what" but also the "how" of building and managing an Individualized Corporation. It develops a new model of the organization as a portfolio of processes rather than a hierarchy of tasks. It describes the new roles that frontline, middle, and top-level managers must play and examines the personal attitudes, knowledge, and skills they will need in order to succeed. And it defines the outlines of a new moral contract that this new generation of companies must develop with its employees and society at large

Organization theory and the multinational corporation by Sumantra Ghoshal( Book )
25 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in English and Japanese and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The original edition of Organization Theory and the Multinational Corporation was a seminal influence in bringing together organization theory and perspectives on the multinational corporation from international management. Leading scholars from both fields contributed to the book, and it quickly became an important resource for researchers, students, and those with a broad interest in either field. This new edition, which updates the original chapters to reflect recent work and includes, a new chapter on institutional contexts, makes this important work once again widely available."--BOOK JACKET
A bias for action : how effective managers harness their willpower, achieve results, and stop wasting time by Heike Bruch( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and German and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Does your job seem like an endless "to-do" list that never gets you - or your company - anywhere? You know what you're supposed to focus on: cutting costs, improving efficiency, encouraging innovation. So why do critical goals consistently get eclipsed by fighting fires, answering e-mails, and other routine "busywork"?" "In this surprising and frame-changing book, management experts Heike Bruch and Sumantra Ghoshal argue that while the usual suspects - overwhelming workloads, tight budgets, and unsupportive bosses - play a role in managerial ineffectiveness, most of the blame lies in how managers approach their jobs. Based on a ten-year study of managerial behavior in industries from banking to software to airlines to consulting, A Bias for Action reveals that only 10 percent of managers work purposefully to get important work done. The other 90 percent squander their potential by procrastinating, detaching from their work, or spinning their wheels in a flurry of "active nonaction."" "Bruch and Ghoshal show that the most effective managers succeed not because they possess unique characteristics or excel at motivating others, but because they harness personal willpower through a potent combination of energy and focus. This willpower is what helps productive managers achieve their goals in spite of the inevitable barriers, setbacks, and distractions that are a mainstay of managerial life."--BOOK JACKET
