Why smart executives fail and what you can learn from their mistakes by Sydney Finkelstein( Book )
24 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 799 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

"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 )
7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 391 libraries worldwide
"A GOOD BOSS HITS HIS GOALS AND LEADS HIS TEAM. A SUPERBOSS BLOWS AWAY HER GOALS BY BUILDING AN ARMY OF NEW LEADERS. WHICH WOULD YOU RATHER BE? What do football coach Bill Walsh, restaurateur Alice Waters, television executive Lorne Michaels, technolƯogy CEO Larry Ellison, and fashion pioneer Ralph Lauren have in common? On the surface, not much, other than consistent success in their fields. But below the surface, they share a common approach to finding, nurturing, leading, and even letting go of great people. The way they deal with talent makes them not merely success stories, not merely organization builders, but what Sydney Finkelstein calls superbosses. They've all transformed entire industries. After ten years of research and more than two hundred interviews, Finkelstein has concluded that superbosses exist in nearly every industry, from the glamorous to the mundane. If you study the top fifty leaders in any field, as many as one-third will have once worked for a superboss. While superbosses differ in their personal styles, they all focus on identifying promising newcomers, inspiring their best work, and launching them into highly successful careers--while also expanding their own networks and building stronger companies. Among the practices that distinguish superbosses: They Create Master-Apprentice Relationships. Superbosses customize their coaching to what each protege really needs, and also are constant founts of practical wisdom. Advertising legend Jay Chiat not only worked closely with each of his employees but would sometimes extend their discussions into the night. They Rely on the Cohort Effect. Superbosses strongly encourage collegiality even as they simultaneously drive internal competition. Lorne Michaels set up Saturday Night Live so that writers and performers are judged by how much of their material actually gets on the air, but they can't get anything on the air without the support of their coworkers. They Say Good-Bye on Good Terms. Nobody likes it when great employees quit, but superƯbosses don't respond with anger or resentment. They know that former direct reports can become highly valuable members of their network, especially as they rise to major new roles elsewhere. Julian Robertson, the billionaire hedge fund manager, continued to work with his former employees who started competƯing hedge funds, and he often profited by investing in them. By sharing the fascinating stories of superbosses and their proteges, Finkelstein explores a phenomenon that never had a name before. And he shows how each of us can emulate the best tactics of superbosses to create our own powerful networks of extraordinary talent"--

Advances in mergers and acquisitions by Cary L Cooper( Book )
50 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 65 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

Left to my own devices : learner autonomy and mobile-assisted language learning by Cary L Cooper( Book )
9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
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, 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, broadening the questions being studied and helping researchers consider the inter-relationships among different perspectives. 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

Advances in mergers and acquisitions by Cary L Cooper( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
This is the third book in the "Elsevier/JAI Series", "Advances in Mergers and Acquistions", comprised of leading international scholars from a range of disciplines, who explore the economic, financial, strategic or organizational behavior aspects of M & As. Marie Kavanagh and Neal Ashkanasy explore how management approaches to mergers and acquisitions contribute to cultural change and acculturation outcomes. The issue of management is pursued further by Duncan Angwin in his chapter on the managing executive in post-acquisition management. Richard Schoenberg highlights the significance of management style compatibility and cross border acquisition outcomes. Randall Schuler, Ibraiz Tarique and Susan Jackson explore cross border alliances as well but from the point of view of managing human resources.The ideal acquisition integration approach is examined by Kimberly Ellis and Bruce Lamont in the context of a merger of equals which leads nicely to the corporate governance issues and M & As explored by Anant Sundaram. The remaining chapters assess the returns of M & As to the organization, with Laurence Capron and Jung-Chin Shen positing the acquirer returns when buying public v private firms, Todd Saxton's reputations as a mobile and transferable asset and Garry Davies and Rosa Chun's reputational perspective on mergers. These leading international academics contribute enormously to our understanding of the rapidly growing merger and acquisition field
