Chasing stars : the myth of talent and the portability of performance by Boris Groysberg( )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is taken for granted in the knowledge economy that companies must employ the most talented performers to compete and succeed. Many firms try to buy stars by luring them away from competitors. But Boris Groysberg shows what an uncertain and disastrous practice this can be. Chasing Stars offers profound insights into the fundamental nature of outstanding performance. It also offers practical guidance to individuals on how to manage their careers strategically, and to companies on how to identify, develop, and keep talent. --Publisher's description
Wall Street research : past, present, and future by Boris Groysberg( )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wall Street Research: Past, Present, and Future provides a timely account of the dramatic evolution of Wall Street research, examining its rise, fall, and reemergence. Despite regulatory, technological, and global forces that have transformed equity research in the last ten years, the industry has proven to be remarkably resilient and consistent. Boris Groysberg and Paul M. Healy get to the heart of Wall Street research--the analysts engaged in the process--and demonstrate how the analysts' roles have evolved, what drives their performance today, and how they stack up against their buy-side counterparts. The book unpacks key trends and describes how different firms have coped with shifting pressures. It concludes with an assessment of where equity research is headed in emerging markets, drawing conclusions about this often overlooked corner of Wall Street and the industry's future challenges."--Provided by publisher

10 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conversation-powered leadership How can leaders make their big or growing companies feel small again?

Does individual performance affect entrepreneurial mobility? : empirical evidence from the financial analysis market by Boris Groysberg( )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our paper contributes to the studies on the relationship between workers' human capital and their decision to become self-employed as well as their probability to survive as entrepreneurs. Analysis from a panel data set of research analysts in investment banks over 1988-1996 reveals that star analysts are more likely than non-star analysts to become entrepreneurs. Furthermore, we find that ventures started by star analysts have a higher probability of survival than ventures established by non-star analysts. Extending traditional theories of entrepreneurship and labor mobility, our results also suggest that drivers of turnover vary by destination: (a) turnover to entrepreneurship and (b) other turnover. In contrast to turnover to entrepreneurship, star analysts are less likely to move to other firms than non-star analysts

Chasing stars : the myth of talent and the portability of performance by Boris Groysberg( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is taken for granted in the knowledge economy that companies must employ the most talented performers to compete and succeed. Many firms try to buy stars by luring them away from competitors. But Boris Groysberg shows what an uncertain and disastrous practice this can be. After examining the careers of more than a thousand star analysts at Wall Street investment banks, and conducting more than two hundred frank interviews, Groysberg comes to a striking conclusion, star analysts who change firms suffer an immediate and lasting decline in performance. Their earlier excellence appears to have depended heavily on their former firms' general and proprietary resources, organizational cultures, networks, and colleagues. There are a few exceptions, such as stars who move with their teams and stars who switch to better firms. Female stars also perform better after changing jobs than their male counterparts do. But most stars who switch firms turn out to be meteors, quickly losing luster in their new settings

The art biennial as a global phenomenon : strategies in neo-political times( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Not only is there a boom in international art biennials, but they are also increasingly deployed for developing and marketing cities and regions. In order to compensate for this, political issues are more and more often put on the agenda. Can biennials really represent an alternative political voice? This extra anniversary issue of Open contains a number of lectures delivered at the debate on this issue in October 2008 in connection with the first Brussels Biennial. Together with supplementary texts, a 'reader' has been created in which the biennial as a global phenomenon is analysed and approached not only in terms of an art theoretical discourse or curatorial practice, but also on the basis of more sociological and politico-philosophical points of view"--P.

Which types of analyst firms make more optimistic forecasts? by Amanda Cowen( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research optimism among securities analysts has been attributed to incentives provided by underwriting activities. We examine how analysts' forecast optimism varies with the business activities used to fund research. We find that analysts at firms with underwriting and trading businesses are actually less optimistic than those at pure brokerage houses, who perform no underwriting. The relatively less optimistic forecasts for underwriting firms are not fully explained by bank reputation. Nor is the relative optimism of brokerage firms explained by the types of clients they serve (retail or institutional). We conclude that sales and trading activities used to fund research create strong incentives for analyst optimism
Entrepreneurship among knowledge workers : evidence from equity analyst market by Boris Groysberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analysis of entrepreneurial efforts from a panel data set of equity research analysts in investment banks over 1988-1996 (9,531analyst-year combinations representing 2, 602 individual analysts from 24 firms) reveals that (a) star knowledge workers are more likely than their non-star counterparts to become entrepreneurs, (b) the probability of entrepreneurial turnover for knowledge workers is greater in underperforming firms, and (c) the entrepreneurial activity of knowledge workers is procyclical with the performance of the economy

Does financial misconduct affect the future compensation of alumni managers by Boris Groysberg( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We explore how an organization's financial misconduct may affect pay for former employees not implicated in wrongdoing. Drawing on stigma theory we hypothesize that although such alumni did not participate in the financial misconduct and they had left the organization years before the misconduct, they experience a compensation penalty. Our results support this prediction. The stigma effect increases in relation to the job function proximity to the misconduct, recency of the misconduct, and an employee's seniority. Collectively, our results suggest that the stigma of financial misconduct could reach alumni employees and need not be confined to executives and directors that oversaw the organization during the misconduct
