Knowledge is power, but this is especially true for teams carrying out a project. As in other arenas, the effective use of knowledge is possible only if it is readily accessible, well organized, properly analyzed, and competently disseminated to meet the project needs. Knowledge gained from project failures or successes is vital for the long term sustainability of organizations to compete in the business environment. This book focuses on the proper access and delivery methods for explicit knowledge in projects and also concentrates on tacit knowledge unknown and unavailable to most people in project environments. Every project is unique with start and end dates, detailed project plan, budget, schedule, human resources, and deliverables, and all these areas have a high volume of rich knowledge. Knowledge is created and flows through all nine project knowledge areas: Project Integration Management; Project Scope Management; Project Time Management; Project Cost Management; Project Quality Management; Project Human Resources Management; Project Communications Management; Project Risk Management; and Project Procurement Management. This book discusses the benefits of managing knowledge in projects and provides techniques that will increase the rate of return on projects. Addressing strategy and deployment issues, this volume also provides case studies, making this an invaluable tool for the success of projects and sustainability/growth of organizations.

Global Themes and Local Variations in Organization and Management: Perspectives on Glocalization offers a broad exposition of the relations between the global and the local with regard to organizational and managerial ideas, practices, and forms. This edited volume forges ahead to capture the complexity of modern management and organization that results from the processes of glocalization. Universality is among the core underlying principles of the management of organizations, as well as of organization and management science itself. Yet, reality reveals enormous variation across social and cultural contexts. For instance, multinational corporations must adjust their management practices to adhere to national regulation and local standards; manufacturers and service providers routinely tailor their products to suit the local preferences of consumers; and non-profit organizations amend their advocacy agenda to appeal to local sentiments. The work assembled here goes beyond merely describing such patterns of variation and adaptation in organization and management; research and commentary engage directly with the tensions between homogeneity and heterogeneity, convergence and divergence, global and local. With contributions from leading scholars in the field of comparative organization studies, this collection offers a substantive contribution to the investigation of organization and management, as well as providing a valuable resource for students of organization studies, international business, and sociology.

The development of communication technology and the proliferation of centers that collect, interpret, and transmit information does not mean that communities have become a more transparent and enlightened environment. If anything, the pioneering research of modern communication signifies the ambiguity of individual and collective existence. Myth in Modern Media Management and Marketing is an essential reference source that discusses the analysis of the role of myth and mythical thinking in the operation of media organizations and their functioning on the media market. Featuring research on topics such as social media, brand management, and advertising, this book is ideally designed for social media analysts, media specialists, public relations managers, media managers, marketers, advertisers, students, researchers, and professionals involved with media and new media management.

Once upon a time the practice of storytelling was about collecting interesting stories about the past, and converting them into soundbite pitches. Now it is more about foretelling the ways the future is approaching the present, prompting a re-storying of the past. Storytelling has progressed and is about a diversity of voices, not just one teller of one past; it is how a group or organization of people negotiates the telling of history and the telling of what future is arriving in the present. With the changes in storytelling practices and theory there is a growing need to look at new and different methodologies. Within this exciting new book, David M. Boje develops new ways to ask questions in interviews and make observations of practice that are about storytelling the future. This, after all, is where management practice concentrates its storytelling, while much of the theory and method work is all about how the past might recur in the future. Storytelling Organizational Practices takes the reader on a journey: from looking at narratives of past experience through looking at living stories of emergence in the present to looking at how the future is arriving in ways that prompts a re-storying of the past.

The use of training techniques originally developed for theatre and improvisation within the workplace has increased enormously in recent years, and the proven effectiveness of this approach has found many enthusiastic followers. Sometimes, actors are brought into an organization to act as catalysts within a training/role-play setting, but, increasingly, trainers themselves are using the techniques. Written by an expert in the field, drawing on her substantial experience in business, training and acting, this practical guide shows clearly how anyone can make use of these techniques easily and effectively. With information on the theories and principles behind using drama in training, this book also includes the details of 50 activities and shows how to use a diverse range of techniques to improve creativity, leadership, teamwork and personal development. Training Using Drama covers the key issues, including: storytelling; role-plays; coaching; non-verbal communication; spontaneity; trust and awareness.

When it was initially written in 1987, few could have predicted that The Leadership Challenge would become one of the best-selling leadership books of all time. Now, faced with the new challenges of our unpredictable global business environment, Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner--two of the country's premier leadership experts--have completely revised and updated their classic book. Building on the knowledge base of their previous books, the third edition of The Leadership Challenge is grounded in extensive research and based on interviews with all kinds of leaders at all levels in public and private organizations from around the world. In this edition, the authors emphasize that the fundamentals of leadership are the same today as they were in the 1980s, and as they've probably been for centuries. In that sense, nothing's new. Leadership is not a fad. While the content of leadership has not changed, the context has-and in some cases, changed dramatically.
