Strategic Management and Business Policy: Globalization, Innovation and Sustainability

Strategic Management and Business Policy: Globalization, Innovation and Sustainability

Concepts in Strategic Management and Business Policy, 15e, has continued to develop around three key themes—globalization, innovation and sustainability— which was introduced in the previous edition. In the current order of things around the world, these three strategic issues comprise the cornerstone all organizations must build upon to push their businesses forward.
In addition to this, the authors have taken a class-tested approach to strategy with New focus on environmental sustainability. This book contains a Strategic Management Model that runs through the first 12 chapters and is made operational through the Strategic Audit, a complete case analysis methodology. The Strategic Audit provides a professional framework for case analysis in terms of external and internal factors and takes the student through the generation of strategic alternatives and implementation programs.
A New Chapter (9) on Global Strategy to address the key issues of entry, international coordination, stages of international development, international employment and measurement of performance.
New and Updated vignettes on sustainability (which is widely defined as business sustainability), globalization (which we view as an expectation of business) and innovation (which is the single most important element in achieving competitive advantage) appear in every chapter of the text.

Operations Research: An Introduction

Operations Research: An Introduction

Operations Research provides a broad focus on algorithmic and practical implementation of Operations Research (OR) techniques, using theory, applications and computations to teach students OR basics. The book can be used conveniently in a survey course that encompasses all the major tools of operations research or in two separate courses on deterministic and probabilistic decision-making.
With the Tenth Edition, the author preserves classical algorithms by providing essential hand computational algorithms as an important part of OR history. Based on input and submissions from OR students, professors and practitioners, the author also includes scenarios that show how classical algorithms can be beneficial in practice. These entries are included as Aha! Moments with each dealing with stories, anecdotes and issues in OR theory, applications, computations and teaching methodology that can advance the understanding of fundamental or concepts.
Features
Added text mini-updates appear throughout the book.
Computational issues in the revised simplex method appear in Chapter 7, including a comparison between product form and the LU decomposition used with the revised simplex method.
Using a brief introduction, inventory modeling is presented within the more encompassing context of supply chains.
This edition adds two new case analyses, resulting in a total 17 fully-developed real-life applications. All the cases appear in chapter 26 on the website and are cross-referenced throughout the book using abstracts at the start of their most applicable chapters.

Managerial Economics  by Pearson

Managerial Economics by Pearson

The discipline of managerial economics is often considered as “too theoretical and not practical enough for the real world.” The seventh edition of Managerial Economics is an attempt to provide a resourceful supplement to classroom teachings that will help students understand the importance and utility of economic theory for business decision making.
This text is designed for upper-level undergraduate and first-year MBA courses in managerial economics and applied economics. In addition to discussing the applications of economic theory to the firm, this text includes chapters on various tools of analysis that are helpful to business decision makers but that are not part of the core of traditional microeconomic theory. These are demand, production and cost estimation using regression analysis, forecasting, capital budgeting and risk analysis. A discussion of linear programming is also available online, along with a review of the time value of money. A review of the mathematical concepts and tools used in the text has been placed on the Companion Website.

Features:
Excel Applications have been developed for the numerical and graphical illustrations used throughout the text. They allow readers to turn the static figures and tables in the text into dynamic illustrations and they will also strengthen students’ ability to use Excel, which we believe is a critical skill in today’s job market.
Chapters have been updated and a few of them rewritten to include recent developments and in-depth coverage of current topics.
Valuable inputs and learnings have been provided by outside experts from improve discussions about other topics of importance and current interest in business. Supply chain systems implementation in companies such as Dell and IBM have also been included to obtain a better idea of the actual challenges of initiating and implementing a supply chain management system.
