Value creation and destruction in the management of organizations by Malcolm S Salter( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This note examines how CEOs and other top managers of business firms create or destroy economic value through the choices they make affecting the coordination, control, and management of organizational life. To help readers think systematically about the relationship between top management and the creation or destruction value, Section I addresses the questions of what constitutes a successful firm, how human and financial resources are attracted to a firm, and how the firm must relate to its environment if it is to survive. Answers to these questions provide the conceptual background necessary for a disciplined assessment of firms and their leaders. Based on this discussion of organizational and managerial performance, Section II discusses three top management tasks critical to the successful implementation of promising competitive strategies: (a) retaining a knowledge advantage over competitors, (b) assembling and developing a unique resource base, and (c) designing low-cost coordination systems. Section III addresses a fourth top management challenge: ensuring organizational adaptiveness to changed circumstance and otherwise sustaining above-average returns once created. Here, special attention is paid to how top-level governance and control processes affect the exercise of rights delegated to boards of directors by outside holders of ownership claims. The exercise of these rights can have a major impact on corporate performance because they strongly affect how top managers set internal rules of the game for everyone else and organize to exploit external profit opportunities. Section IV concludes with a comment on the task of administrative leadership in voluntary organizations. The ideas and concepts covered in this note are developed more fully in the CCMO course (Coordination, Control, and the Management of Organizations) at the Harvard Business School
Innovation corrupted. the rise and fall of Enron by Malcolm S Salter( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This paper presents a brief historical overview of Enron's rise and fall and summarizes what is currently known about (1) the evolution of Enron's business model, (2) those organizational processes relied upon by senior Enron officials to drive and monitor the business, (3) emergent behavior related to the structuring, management, and valuation of major partnerships, and (4) oversight provided by Enron's management and board of directors. It concludes by posing the question of how Enron's story as a new, post-deregulation corporate model could have escaped critical analysis by the financial community, the business press, and other observers for so long. As such, this paper is an exercise in description, not interpretation. Since many of the facts about Enron's rise and fall have yet to be determined and agreed upon, this description must be considered tentative and incomplete. Nevertheless, the broad contours of the Enron story presented in this paper provide a sufficient basis for developing initial hypotheses about what might have caused Enron's swift collapse and what business and public policies might best protect shareholders, employees, and other relevant parties in the future from the kinds of injuries experienced in Enron's swift decline into bankruptcy
