Most widely held works by Roger L Martin
The design of business : why design thinking is the next competitive advantage by Roger L Martin( Book )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 845 libraries worldwide
Most companies today have innovation envy. Many make genuine efforts to be innovative: they spend on R&D, bring in creative designers, hire innovation consultants; but they still get disappointing results. Roger Martin argues that to innovate and win, companies need 'design thinking'
Playing to win : how strategy really works by A. G Lafley( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 804 libraries worldwide
Strategy is not complex. But it is hard. It's hard because it forces people and organizations to make specific choices about their future -- something that doesn't happen in most companies. In this book, two well-known business thinkers get to the heart of strategy -- explaining what it's for, how to think about it, why you need it, and how to get it done. Yet the authors of Playing to Win, A. G. Lafley, the former CEO of Procter & Gamble and one of the most successful business leaders of the last century, and Roger Martin, Dean of the Rotman School of Management, say most firms shy away from difficult strategic choices, settling instead for false approaches that can lead to irreversible blunders

11 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 766 libraries worldwide

The future of the MBA : designing the thinker of the future by Mihnea C Moldoveanu( Book )
15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 570 libraries worldwide
"The Future of the MBA provides a sorely needed detailed and systematic review of the major contemporary debates on management education. At the same time, it makes a striking new proposal that will certainly have an impact in business schools: that managers need to develop a series of qualitative tacit skills which could be appropriately developed by integrative curricula brought from different disciplines, including sociology, philosophy, and other social sciences. Moldoveanu and Martin, both involved in the greatly respected integrative business education program at the Rotheman School of Management, provide a guide on how to design a reliable integrated program for management students. One of the main assets of the book is that it relies not just on speculative thinking, but on real life experience, and that it also includes case studies that will appeal to practicing managers. As an authoritative reference on MBA education, it will appeal to faculty and staff of business schools, as well as students in related fields like education and public policy."--BOOK JACKET
The responsibility virus : how control freaks, shrinking violets-and the rest of us-can harness the power of true partnership by Roger L Martin( Book )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 569 libraries worldwide
A Triumph. Few management books have ever brought such psychological insight to the question of why good people often struggle in positions of leadership."-Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point
Fixing the game : bubbles, crashes, and what capitalism can learn from the NFL by Roger L Martin( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 371 libraries worldwide
Martin (management, U. of Toronto, Canada) uses the National Football League as his most prominent example to show that it is possible to end the destructive pattern of increasing volatility, dropping investor returns, and generally bad behavior among executives that is crippling American capitalism. Some of his concepts include realigning executive compensation with real-world markets and not expectations, rethinking board governance and the parts board members play, and whittling down power of hedge funds and monopoly pension funds
Canada : what it is, what it can be by Roger L Martin( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 163 libraries worldwide
Canada: What It Is, What It Can Be provides an incisive examination of this country's increasing prosperity gap - the difference in value between what we do create and what we could create if we performed at our full potential. As Roger Martin and James Milway demonstrate, although we are proud of our trading prowess, we do not participate as aggressively in world markets with innovative products and services as we could. While we want to take risks to achieve success, our business strategies and economic policies need to set the bar higher to achieve the success we want for Canada
Diaminds : decoding the mental habits of successful thinkers by Mihnea C Moldoveanu( Book )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 137 libraries worldwide
"What constitutes successful thinking in business? What are the techniques used by some of the top minds in the business world to solve problems and create value? In Diaminds, Mihnea Moldoveanu and Roger Martin, creators of the Integrative Thinking curriculum at the Rotman School of Management, draw upon numerous case studies and interviews - as well as theories and models from cognitive psychology, epistemology, analytic philosophy, and semiotics - to present a new conception of successful intelligence that is immediately applicable to business situations." "The 'diamind' (or dialogical mind) is characterized by a number of qualities: the ability to simultaneously hold opposing plans, models, and courses of action in mind while retaining the ability to act (bi-stability), logical depth and informational breadth in one's thinking processes (meliorism), the ability to choose among various representations of the world, the self, and others (choicefulness), and the capacity to think about how to analyse and solve a problem while at the same time thinking about the problem itself (polyphony). The authors discuss these concepts in detail, and provide examples and exercises throughout to encourage readers to examine and re-engineer their own thought patterns to develop these qualities and cultivate their own 'diaminds'."--BOOK JACKET
Jurisdictional advantage by Maryann P Feldman( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 59 libraries worldwide
"Our objective in this paper is to define jurisdictional advantage, the recognition that location is critical to firms' innovative success and that every location has unique assets that are not easily replicated. The purpose is to be normative and policy oriented. Drawing from the well-developed literature on corporate strategy, we consider analogies to cities in their search for competitive advantage. In contrast to the more passive term locational advantage, our use of the term jurisdiction denotes geographically-defined legal and political decision-making authority and coordination. Thus, jurisdictions may be constructed and managed to promote a coherent activity set. We review recent advances in our understanding of patterns of urban specialization and the composition of activities within cities, which suggest strategies that may generate economic growth as well as those strategies to avoid. This paper then considers the role of firms and their responsibility to jurisdictions in light of the net benefits received from place-specific externalities, and concludes by considering the challenges to implementing jurisdictional advantage"--National Bureau of Economic Research web site
