Organizational strategy, structure, and process by Raymond E Miles( Book )

40 editions published between 1978 and 2008 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work, originally published in 1978, describes its contribution to the field of organization studies. It focuses on how organizations adapt to their environments, and introduced a theoretical framework composed of a dynamic adaptive cycle and an empirically based strategy typology showing four different types of adaptation. This framework helped to define subsequent research by other scholars on important topics such as configurational analysis, organizational fit, strategic human resource management, and multi-firm network organizations

Fit, failure, and the hall of fame : how companies succeed or fail by Raymond E Miles( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Managers often become frustrated when, after making Herculean efforts to launch a better product, create a superior structure, or improve processes, success remains a distant and elusive goal. But genuine success does not come from any single action - or any random group of actions - caution Raymond Miles and Charles Snow in this incisive analysis of success and failure. Instead, they argue, success is achieved when the strategy structure, and processes of a company "fit" together: operations then run smoothly inside and out, more is done with less, and customers are satisfied. Companies that go a step further to create exceptionally innovative strategy-structure-process packages - for example, Carnegie Steel was the first to create a vertically integrated, centralized management structure within the steel industry - often develop a record of accomplishments and reputation considerable enough to propel them into a mythical corporate Hall of Fame. Based on studies of dozens of companies to which they have applied this concept of "fit," the authors explain how success and failure can be predicted. Examining the causes of success and failure historically they describe how such companies as General Motors and Sears, Roebuck - both Hall of Fame candidates - earned their legendary status by pioneering new forms of organization to fit the strategy-structure-process combination demanded by the marketplace at the time. Miles and Snow relate historic successes to current successes, explaining how even the most thriving companies of today - including Wal-Mart, Rubbermaid, and General Electric - could lose their way and become "misfit" companies. They describe in detail the path to misfit and what pitfalls to avoid to stay on the right track. Looking to the future, the authors examine new shapes organizations will take, including various types of "networks" and a promising new form that they call the "spherical" organization. Finally, Miles and Snow detail the key to long-term corporate health: dynamic fit. Dynamic fit allows managers to ensure flexibility and ongoing adaptation to the marketplace. Without it, the authors warn, success is fragile. With it, companies can develop their own recipe for success that works consistently no matter what corporate climate the future holds

A tale of two cities ; and, Great expectations by Charles Dickens( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After eighteen years as a political prisoner in the Bastille, the aging Doctor Manette is finally released and reunited with his daughter in England. There the lives of two very different men, Charles Darnay, an exiled French aristocrat, and Sydney Carton, a disreputable but brilliant English lawyer, become enmeshed through their love for Lucie Manette. From the tranquil roads of London, they are drawn against their will to the vengeful, bloodstained streets of Paris at the height of the Reign of Terror, and they soon fall under the lethal shadow of La Guillotine. This edition uses the text as it appeared in its first serial publication in 1859 to convey the full scope of Dickens's vision, and includes the original illustrations by H.K. Browne ('Phiz'). Richard Maxwell's introduction discusses the intricate interweaving of epic drama with personal tragedy
