Haunted empire : Apple after Steve Jobs - Yukari Iwatani Kane
Call Number: HD9696.2.U64 A67365 2014
ISBN: 0062128256
Steve Jobs's death raised one of the most pressing questions in the tech and business worlds: Could Apple stay great without its iconic leader? Many inside the company were eager to prove that Apple could be just as innovative as it had been under Jobs. Others were painfully aware of the immense challenge ahead. As its business has become more complex and global, Apple has come under intense scrutiny, much of it critical. Maintaining market leadership has become crucial as it tries to conquer new frontiers and satisfy the public's insatiable appetite for "insanely great” products. Based on over two hundred interviews with current and former executives, business partners, Apple watchers and others, Haunted Empire is an illuminating portrait of Apple today that offers clues to its future. - Book description

Share, don’t take the lead : leadership lessons from 21 Vanguard organizations - Craig L. Pearce, Charles C. Manz, Henry P. Sims, Jr.
Call Number: HD57.7 .S4754 2014
ISBN: 1623964768
This book tells the tales of how multiple trail blazing organizations used shared leadership to build high performance. The notion of shared leadership seems to contradict many of the bedrock ideas of efficient management and effective organizations. A typical first reaction is, "It'll never work here!" Yet, the organizations that "get it" and implement this new powerful approach tend to be more innovative and to out-perform their "nay-sayer" competitors. In fact, shared leadership is one of the most important ideas to hit business in recent years-our recent feature article about shared leadership in the Wall Street Journal is testimony to that. Shared leadership can provide a way for companies to increase productivity, quality, and flexibility while meeting the competitiveness challenge. - Book description

Everybody’s business : reclaiming true management skills in business higher education - Ian I. Mitroff, Can M. Alpaslan, Ellen S. O’Connor
Call Number: HF1131 .M58 2014
ISBN: 1137412046
Today's business schools do not teach management. Instead, they are run for and by separate disciplines such as accounting and marketing. The end result to this strategy is not only the extreme fragmentation of knowledge, but the inability to manage complex, messy systems and problems. Business schools need to be fundamentally recast as Schools of Management or SOMs. Everybody's Business is a succinct analysis of the factors that led to the founding of American business schools and why they are the way they are. Mitroff, Alpaslan, and O'Connor consider why current business schools do not give students the knowledge and the tools they need to deal with today's complex, messy problems and systems. They also spell out the kinds of knowledge and skills that are needed to deal with today's complex issues. - Book description

ISBN: 1107044200
Opening the black box of agency theory, Korine and Gomez show how management and ownership interact to shape the strategy of the firm.

America’s fiscal constitution : its triumph and collapse - Bill White
Call Number: HJ8119 .W45 2014
ISBN: 1610393430
America's Fiscal Constitution: Its Triumph and Collapse (PublicAffairs, April 1, 2014) tells the remarkable story of federal leaders who imposed clear limits on the use of federal debt. For almost two centuries those limits allowed the federal government to borrow for only four purposes. That traditional fiscal constitution collapsed in 2001, when federal elected officials broke the traditional link between federal tax and spending policies. For the first time in history, the federal government cut taxes during war, funded permanent new programs entirely with debt, and became dependent on foreign creditors. - Book description

The challenge of working for Americans : perspectives of an international workforce - Bond Benton
Call Number: HD6336 .B46 2014
ISBN: 1137365846
Internationalization is now a necessity for American organizations, leading to unprecedented cultural exchanges in multinational employers. Much has been written about Americans working abroad, but how do non-Americans feel about working for Americans? To answer this question, Bond Benton directly surveyed nearly 600 Foreign Service Nationals working for the US State Department. These State Department employees speak to the perceptions of non-Americans working in an overtly American environment. This unprecedented work offers insights that are enlightening, challenging, and occasionally shocking. Researchers, practitioners, students, and those interested in understanding America's place in the world can all consider what happens when those who are 'exceptional' become those who are "the other." - Book description

Decoding the new consumer mind : how and why we shop and buy - Kit Yarrow ; foreword by Paco Underhill
Call Number: HF5415.32 .Y37 2014
ISBN: 1118647688
... Yarrow reveals the trends that define our transformed behavior. For example, when we shop we show greater emotionality, hunting for more intense experiences and seeking relief and distraction online. A profound sense of isolation and individualism shapes the way we express ourselves and connect with brands and retailers. Neurological research even suggests that our brains are rewired, altering what we crave, how we think, and where our attention goes. Decoding the New Consumer Mind provides marketers with practical ways to tap into this new consumer psychology, and Yarrow shows how to combine technology and innovation to enhance brand image; win love and loyalty through authenticity and integrity; put the consumer’s needs and preferences front and center; and deliver the most emotionally intense, yet uncomplicated, experience possible. - Book description
