1Strategic Human Resource Management  : Formulating and Implementing HR Strategies for a Competitive Advantage

Strategic Human Resource

Pengarang   : Ananda Das Gupta              

Imprint          : New York : Routledge, 2020 

Mukasurat    : 172


The concept of strategic human resource management has developed widely in the last couple of years, especially because of the impact of human resources on the competitiveness of organizations. The development of human resource strategies involves considering their multiple mutual dependencies and the fact that they must be vertically integrated with the business strategy. These strategies define the intentions and plans related to the overall organizational considerations, such as organizational competitiveness, effectiveness or image, and to more specific aspects of human resources management, such as resourcing, motivating, valuating, learning and development, reward and employee relations.

Strategic management of human resources provides a large perspective on the way critical issues or success factors related to people can be addressed and how different concepts of strategic decisions are made, with long-term impacts on the behaviour and success of the organization. The fundamental objective of human resource strategic management is to generate strategic capabilities by ensuring that the organization has the high-qualified, committed and well-motivated employees it needs to achieve and sustain the competitive advantage.

3.Understanding Auctions

 Understanding Auctions

Pengarang   : Srobonti Chattopadhyay and Rittwik Chatterjee     

Imprint          : London :  Routledge, 2020 

Mukasurat    : 94    

Sinopsis :

The book elaborates the basic principles of Auction Theory in a non-technical language to make them easily accessible to even those not trained in the discipline. Auctions as allocation mechanisms have been in use across the world since antiquity and are still employed in different countries for purchase and sales of a wide range of objects, both by governments and by private agents. Auction has gained popularity over other allocation mechanisms since the rules of auctions are very precise, involve much less subjective judgements compared to other alternative allocation mechanisms and lead to a more efficient process of discovering the true willingness of the buyers to pay. Moreover, the principles of Auction Theory are used in other contexts, for example in designing contests, or in controlling emission levels through allocation of permits and licenses.

6. International Leasing : Strategy and Decision 

International Leasing

Pengarang   : Simon S. Gao              

Imprint          : London : Routledge, 2018

Muka surat   : 246

Sinopsis :

This chapter focuses on international leasing strategies and decisions from the lessor's point of view. Traditional analysis of leasing has focused almost exclusively on the problem of the lessee, the user of equipment. A lessor may have different decision-making procedures and methods with respect to an international leasing project compared with a lessee. The most obvious difficulties are those associated with differing cultural and financial traditions, and accounting practices, complicated by legal barriers, transaction costs and taxation. Like domestic leasing decisions, international leasing decisions from the lessor's point of view also focus primarily upon the expected incremental cash flows. The leasing industry is currently undergoing internationalisation: the expansion of leasing firms into countries outside their headquarters. For independent lessors, the major strategies are to set up subsidiaries, joint-ventures, and licenses in foreign countries, or conduct direct cross-border leasing. Leveraged leasing is one of the most complex and sophisticated vehicles for financing capital equipment in today's financial marketplace.

Small Actions Big Difference

Pengarang   : CB Bhattacharya        

Imprint           : London : Routledge, 2019

Muka surat   : 197

Sinopsis :

Despite dire warnings about global warming, carbon emissions by the world’s largest companies are increasing and only a few companies have strategies for managing carbon emissions and water resources.

So what separates the best from the rest? In one word, the answer is ownership: companies that are winning at sustainability have created the conditions for their stakeholders to own sustainability and reap the benefits that come with deeper experience with and ownership of social and environmental issues: a happier, more productive workforce, increased customer loyalty, higher stock valuations, and greater long-term profits.

Based on interviews with 25 global multinational corporations as well as employees, middle managers, and senior leaders across multiple sectors, this is the first book to connect sustainability to the theory and principles of psychological ownership and to propose a succinct, easy-to-digest model for managerial use.
