Why smart executives fail and what you can learn from their mistakes by Sydney Finkelstein( Book )
27 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 793 libraries worldwide
"In Why Smart Executives Fail, Sydney Finkelstein unveils the extraordinary results of the largest research project ever devoted to leadership failure. Over the past six years, Professor Finkelstein and his team conducted hundreds of interviews with insiders at top companies that have risen and fallen - and, for some, risen again - to expose the root of these failures and to gain insight into the people behind them. One astonishing finding: businesses that seemed to have nothing in common turned out to have failed for exactly the same reasons. Even the excuses that failed managers offered turned out to be the same in case after case."--Jacket
Strategic leadership : theory and research on executives, top management teams, and boards by Sydney Finkelstein( Book )
17 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 529 libraries worldwide
"This book integrates and assesses the vast and rapidly growing literature on strategic leadership, which is the study of top executives and their effects on organizations. Strategic Leadership synthesizes what is known about strategic leadership and indicates new research directions. The book is meant primarily for scholars who strive to assess and understand the phenomena of strategic leadership. It offers a considerable foundation on which professionals involved in executive search, compensation, appraisal, and staffing, as well as board members who evaluate executive performance and potential, might build their tools and perspectives."--Jacket
Superbosses : how exceptional leaders master the flow of talent by Sydney Finkelstein( Book )
14 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and Japanese and held by 516 libraries worldwide
"Based on years of research, Sydney Finkelstein, professor at Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth and author of WHY SMART EXECUTIVES FAIL, looks at how a few visionaries consistently develop the most successful talent in their industries After dining at the Chez Panisse, the restaurant run by legendary chef Alice Waters, Sydney Finkelstein got to thinking. Dozens of chefs from Chez Panisse had gone on to open their own restaurants and win fame after working with Waters. Indeed, she was behind many of the most successful players in the industry. Could this pattern exist elsewhere? Did other industries have their own superstars who developed the majority of leaders in their particular field? After years of research, Finkelstein found that similarly powerful mentors--whom he calls Superbosses--do indeed exist in every industry, from finance to entertainment to fashion and the arts. These Superbosses create a network of superstars, using techniques for hiring, developing, challenging, promoting, and even letting go of great people in ways that are often counterintuitive. Finkelstein profiles luminary Superbosses such as Waters, Lorne Michaels, Miles Davis, Ralph Lauren, Larry Ellison, and Bonnie Fuller and looks at how they manage and lead their best people, from their surprising hiring practices to their impossibly high expectations to their support of people even after they leave. The practices of Superbosses, Finkelstein found, are in fact teachable."--

Each collection of articles that makes up a volume of Advances in Mergers and Acquisitions paints a picture of contemporary research on this topic. In this volume, we have seven contributions from scholars in North America, Europe, and Asia, and these papers collectively address acquisition strategy and acquisition integration, successful deals and unsuccessful ones, ownership structure and managerial structure, risk and return, knowledge preservation and knowledge transfer, building trust and cultivating emotions, and alliances and networks. This breadth of attention across the spectrum of research possibilities on mergers and acquisitions is remarkable in that it suggests both that this topic has morphed in recent years to encompass a broad array of issues that go far beyond what earlier generations of scholars concerned themselves with, and that there is still so much more to be learned about the processes and performance of mergers and acquisitions. One of the benefits of an edited volume of articles on a core topic is the opportunity it presents to bring together not only the diversity of topics described above, but a diversity of methods as well. The insights that emerge from these multiple methods may well be more varied than might otherwise be the case, and offer an additional potential contribution. In bringing together a set of seven different papers by scholars from different disciplines, with different research agendas, and hailing from different countries yet all of whom are tackling the same general phenomenon, this volume offers something that cannot be easily replicated in other forums. The diversity of disciplines, perspectives, and countries is remarkable, but so are the diversity of topics, issues, methodologies, and research questions they bring to bear to shed light on the same fundamental, and critical, feature of organizational life mergers and acquisitions. The book provides a diverse explanation of topics and methods, contains seven different papers provided by scholars from around the world, and is an excellent resource for researchers, students and practitioners
Advances in mergers and acquisitions by Sydney Finkelstein( Book )

Mergers and acquisitions continue to be a primary vehicle of growth for companies around the world. Not only in the United States and Europe, but also in Japan, China, India, Brazil and elsewhere senior executives are making huge bets on the future of their firms. With such intense scrutiny in the world of business, it is not surprising that academic research on mergers and acquisitions has been similarly robust. The topics range from strategy, to organizational integration, culture, leadership, human resource planning, and financial analysis. Similarly, the theories brought to bear to help understand mergers and acquisitions range from upper echelons theory to the resource based view of the firm, competitive analysis, organizational trust, networks, knowledge management, and others. What makes the Advances in Mergers and Acquisitions series stand out is its focus on all three characteristics that make up this research field - studies from scholars in different countries, with different research questions, and relying on different theoretical perspectives. Such a broad, and inclusive, approach to mergers and acquisitions is not easily replicated in academic journals, with much narrower mandates and metrics. The collections published each year provide cutting edge ideas by leading scholars on a global scale. Doing so not only broadens the questions being studied, but also helps researchers consider the inter-relationships among different perspectives. In the final analysis, the best way to build understanding around a topic as diffuse as mergers and acquisitions is to be both integrative, and expansive, in choice of research questions and theoretical underpinnings. Advances in Mergers and Acquisitions offers this unique perspective, not easily found elsewhere, that will help scholars think about mergers and acquisitions in new ways, building our knowledge base on this critical topic. In light of the enormous sums being invested in growth-via-acquisition strategies around the world, academic research on mergers and acquisitions has never been more important

Advances in mergers and acquisitions ( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The latest volume of Advances in Mergers & Acquisitions brings together the best research in acquisition strategy by leading scholars in the field of M & A. As more and more companies position themselves for growth and change in a fluctuating global financial climate this volume is a must for scholars and strategy specialists involved in the study or implementation of mergers and acquisitions. Contributions explore the "negotiation stage" of acquisition; the role of the customer; human impacts on the performance of a merger or acquisition; managing cross-border deals, and post-acquisition integration. Important new findings in this volume detail how non-financial considerations help to predict the success or failure of an acquisition strategy. It presents an extensive review of research from the last 30 years on how culture has a direct impact upon global deals and addresses the gap in academic research on how to bridge the organizational and national cultural differences which ultimately cause barriers between acquisition partners
