Current Topics in Management Volume 10
This annual series presents basic research on the theory and practice of management and administration. Volume 10 includes both invited contributions and revised versions of papers presented at the 2004 International Conference on Advances in Management, held at Orlando, Florida. This volume exemplifies ICAM's comparative orientation, in its broad scope of management perspectives, in the diverse locations of its research as well as its application, and in its comparisons of findings, methodologies, and operational definitions.
The chapters in Part 1, "Knowledge Management, Learning, and Effectiveness," discuss the Effective Knowledge Organization; new frontiers to actionable knowledge; and reframing and engaging with organizational learning constraints. In Part 2, "Organization Change, Innovation, and Learning," chapters examine the new sciences and Organization Studies, and Exploratory Research on the Effect of Autonomous Learners to Team Learning within Healthcare Systems. In Part 3, "Performance, Social Capital, and Ethics," chapters elaborate on corporate performance cycles; the Marginal Temp Syndrome; the liabilities of social capital with respect to career development, third-party relationships, creativity generation, change, organizational and societal fragmentation, and collective wrongdoings; and ethics and the 2003 Mutual Fund Scandal. In Part 4, "International and Cross-cultural Management," chapters discuss selecting employees for global assignments; rethinking citizenship in public administration, and styles of handling interdepartmental conflict and effectiveness.
This volume will be of particular interest to corporate libraries, doctoral students in management and administration, economists, and labor studies specialists.
