" Management control is a process that enables an organisation to clarify its performance objectives and guide their achievement while ensuring that the actions undertaken by its various units are coherent. " With that definition, this book places the control process at the heart of the managers role within the organisation. It offers a refreshing vision of management control by organising its discourse around the fundamental challenges involved in the control process. Understanding these challenges will enable managers to enrich the way they create the tools that support the process.

The economy is global, businesses are increasingly global, management has gone global and there is an increasing demand (and reward) for truly skilled global leaders, managers and executives. Black and Morrison address this change by asking why and when globalization truly began and explain how businesses can adapt themselves to remain competitive in increasingly global markets. Written by authoritative experts and based on extensive, up-to-date research and interviews with leading global leaders, The Global Leadership Challenge provides practical tools to develop global leadership skills, laying down the capabilities that must be developed and the plans that must be made to meet the globalization challenge. This will be truly vital reading for middle managers who have ambition for more senior positions, senior managers that are already bumping up against the challenges of global leadership, and top executives who are in the midst of the challenges of global leadership.
The aim of this set of books is to combine the best of current academic research into the use of Communities of Practice in education with "hands on" practitioner experience in order to provide teachers and academics with a convenient source of guidance and an incentive to work with and develop in their own Communities of Practice. This set of books is divided into two volumes: volume 1 deals principally with the issues found in colocated Communities of Practice, while volume 2 deal principally with distributed Communities of Practice"

The first part of this book is devoted to methods seeking relevant dimensions of data. The variables thus obtained provide a synthetic description which often results in a graphical representation of the data. After a general presentation of the discriminating analysis, the second part is devoted to clustering methods which constitute another method, often complementary to the methods described in the first part, to synthesize and to analyze the data. The book concludes by examining the links existing between data mining and data analysis.

This book addresses the increased fragmentation and internationalization of production. It explores how concurrent business transformations in manufacturing and marketing impact global and developing economies, and how supply chain initiatives and information sharing impact overall organizational performance. It further connects marketing and advertising as an important link between organizations and its partners; education as a bridge between developing and developed world economies; and growth as a long-term objective of increasing integration at the regional and global level. Through a series of case studies, scholars across the US and France contribute chapters on the manufacturing, marketing, and internationalization of luxury fashion brands, music advertising, the growth of Amazon, and the business landscapes in India, China, Africa, and North Korea. The book provides academic libraries, international business scholars, graduate students, and policy makers with insights and opportunities that enable firms to achieve a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
