Most widely held works by Roger L Martin
Playing to win : how strategy really works by A. G Lafley( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 920 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
The design of business : why design thinking is the next competitive advantage by Roger L Martin( Book )
10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 861 libraries worldwide
Most companies today have innovation envy. They yearn to come up with a game-changing innovation like Apple's iPod, or create an entirely new category like Facebook. Many make genuine efforts to be innovative - they spend on R&D, bring in creative designers, hire innovation consultants. But they get disappointing results. Why? In "The Design of Business", Roger Martin offers a compelling and provocative answer: we rely far too exclusively on analytical thinking, which merely refines current knowledge, producing small improvements to the status quo. To innovate and win, companies need design thinking. This form of thinking is rooted in how knowledge advances from one stage to another-from mystery (something we can't explain) to heuristic (a rule of thumb that guides us toward solution) to algorithm (a predictable formula for producing an answer) to code (when the formula becomes so predictable it can be fully automated). As knowledge advances across the stages, productivity grows and costs drop - creating massive value for companies. Martin shows how leading companies such as Procter & Gamble, Cirque du Soleil, RIM, and others use design thinking to push knowledge through the stages in ways that produce breakthrough innovations and competitive advantage. Filled with deep insights and fresh perspectives, "The Design of Business" reveals the true foundation of successful, profitable innovation

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 )

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
The future of the MBA : designing the thinker of the future by Mihnea C Moldoveanu( Book )
16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 651 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
Fixing the game : bubbles, crashes, and what capitalism can learn from the NFL by Roger L Martin( Book )
14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 417 libraries worldwide
Using the National Football League as his primary example, Martin illustrates that it is possible to take a much more thoughtful and effective approach than we now do to the intersection of the real and the expectations markets and to governance in general in the capital markets. Martin shows how we can act to end the destructive cycle of increasing volatility, decreasing investor returns, and ongoing bad behavior by executives

Jurisdictional advantage by Maryann P Feldman( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 60 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
