Fighting corruption in Asia causes, effects, and remedies by John Kidd( )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fundamental changes within economies are needed to create arm's-length relations between governments, corporations, and banks. We are taking risks when investing in the future, and risk-taking demands openness and truthfulness from the agents we employ. If investors and accountants can concur on the degree of disclosure that is morally right we may come to some global agreement on what constitutes corruption - but to do this we have to bring together those who advocate profit-making with those who see this as usury; and we have to care for the future in novel ways - unknown in the past - so as to allow firms to be locally inefficient (apparently) while preserving the environment. This text examines the prevailing situation in Asia and considers how little some governments are doing to guide their institutions towards probity and transparency. While fundamental changes are needed around the globe, it is in the developing nations that there is scope for radical change in the near future, as their institutions are recreated to meet the modern world. Once developed and functioning their managers will have the opportunity to facilitate and re-direct the institutions in the developed world, which happen to be more conservative than their own
Corruption and governance in Asia by John B Kidd( Book )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work delves into the nature of governance in Asia both at government and corporate level. It reviews the history and suggests potential solutions for years of underperformance due to the corrupt practices that have developed because of a poor understanding of corporate governance. The authors are experts in practices in Asia and their views are expressed in a sympathetic manner, at no time insisting that a western model of governance is correct. Instead the authors advise local models appropriate to the state of development and suggest that individual countries institute behavioural models that will mature as nations quickly develop in an increasingly global world
Advances in human resource management in Asia ( Book )
7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume demonstrates how human resource management is enacted in Asian countries, how it is changing in response to recent economic events, and how firms are linking indigenous and external human resource management learning; with examples taken from firms in Japan, China, Korea and Thailand
Infrastructure and productivity in Asia : political, financial, physical and intellectual underpinnings by John B Kidd( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book examines several key issues facing government ministers, international aid organizations and business managers who all hope to promote business or to do business in Asia. The fundamentals of infrastructures are reviewed - ranging from the need to support educational infrastructure, to a review of terrorist networks that use their own infrastructures as well as that of the internet. The authors argue that modern infrastructure is interdependent. Yet if it is disconnected, society will not develop smoothly and the gap between the 'haves' and the 'have nots' will widen. Contributions are provided by an international group of distinguished academics, managers and policy makers who contribute chapters on: - Infrastructure, systems, creativity and the role of human capital - the role of governance in major conglomerates as well as family-run businesses - the need to improve administrations to better use their human and intellectual capital - the development of a wired society across Asia and its implications - the development leadership to use the breadth of infrastructure interconnectedness
Maximizing human intelligence deployment in Asian business : the sixth generation project ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Under the waves of merger and acquisition, prevalent at the beginning of the 21st century, many multinational firms have to achieve several goals, sometimes in conflict, and so there is a great need to effectively manage the ever leaner and more divergent work force. The HRM function in multinational firms is developing to fulfil this need by helping firms to use the knowledge employees from all regions have of their tasks through human intelligence deployment. Contributors focus particularly on the challenges faced by firms with multinational subsidiaries, within which HRM systems have often been operating in very different ways, and they show that there is value in identifying and understanding those differing approaches. This book aims to help managers of multinational firms to deploy their staff more effectively and shows how human intelligence deployment may be the way to improve long term profitability of their firms if considered as part of a global HR strategy

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It examines trends in Asia's modification of its economic and fiscal environment, strategies undertaken by multinational companies and governments in Asia in coping with divergent cultures, organizational restructuring to support alliance formation and maintenance and post-crisis strategies. The book illustrates the range of governance structures that are seen to be better (or worse) at supporting alliances and it offers an approach to ameliorating difficulties
