9780130219718: The Strategic Management of Organisations

We are pleased to announce the publication of The Strategic Management of Organisationsby Adrian Haberberg and Alison Rieple both of the University of Westminster.  This exciting new text from Pearson Education is an essential introduction to strategy for undergraduate students taking business studies and related degrees. It is intended to help students understand the theory of strategic management and competitive advantage and, most importantly, apply that theory in practice. Together, the authors have succeeded in writing a clear and accessible introduction to this complex and challenging subject matter. The clarity of the language and the international approach also make this book very suitable for managers and postgraduate students who do not have English as their first language.  The book blends traditional approaches with the more recently developed resource-based view of the firm and provides up-to-date theoretical insights in such areas as increasing returns, organisational learning, corporate parenting and electronic commerce. Rather than viewing strategic management in isolation the book continually makes reference aims to help students to connect it with their studies in related disciplines such as economics, finance, marketing and organisational theory. It takes a balanced view of the strategy process, giving equal importance to insights from economics and to considerations of politics, power, human emotion and fallibility.

From the Back Cover:

The Strategic Management of Organisations is intended to help students understand the theory of strategic management and competitive advantage and, most importantly, apply that theory in practice. Adrian Haberberg and Alison Rieple have succeeded in writing a clear and accessible introduction to this complex subject matter.
The book blends traditional approaches with the more recently developed resource-based view of the firm and provides up-to-date theoretical insights in such areas as increasing returns, organisational learning, corporate parenting and electronic commerce. It takes a balanced view of the strategy process giving equal importance to insights from economics and to considerations of politics, power, human emotion and fallibility. Rather than viewing strategic management in isolation the book continually makes reference to related disciplines such as economics, finance, marketing and organisational theory.
Key features of the text include-
Plenty of case material to demonstrate how theories are applied, including 1 page real-life applications, four cases that run through the book, end of chapter cases for seminar work and longer case studies for deeper study and assessment. Cases cover a wide variety of sectors, companies and international contexts but almost all will be instantly recognisable to students. Organisations include- Sony, British Airways, McDonald's, Benetton, Siemens, Ryanair and many more!
A logical structure with navigational aids such as hyperlinks and diagrammatic plans enabling the student to appreciate the non-linear nature of strategy
An international business context that is assumed as a matter of course, rather than treated as separate heading
An approach designed to help students to reach rigorous conclusions from quantitative and qualitative evidence. Practical Do's and Don'ts boxes help them apply the analytical tools correctly in their work
Advanced Topics and Theoretical Perspectives sections to enable students to gain a deeper understanding of core issues or particular theories
A well developed supplements package to support the teaching experience including a tutor's manual, PowerPoint slides and companion website.
