Now in its sixth edition, Warnich's Human Resource Management in South Africa provides the complete introduction to Human Resource Management in the challenging business world of modern day South Africa. Dramatic changes in both the external and internal environment of organisations in South Africa since the beginning of the twenty-first century have resulted in employees increasingly expecting to be part of the decision-making process. This change, combined with developments in technology, means that human resource (HR) managers are now faced with new and important challenges. In this situation, increasing pressure is being exerted on HR managers in South Africa to make a more significant contribution to the success of their organisations - how can organisations in South Africa deal with the complexity, speed and magnitude of these changes and still create and achieve a competitive advantage?

Given the common acknowledgement that strategy implementation is the greatest challenge to managers in the 21st century and the greatest reason for strategy failure we decided to focus on strategy implementation. Rather than promoting the unrealistic idea of strategy as a purely rational and deliberate outcome, this book acknowledges and explores the idea that strategy is often emergent, messy and experimental.

The 2nd edition of this book offers five key approaches:

  • It focuses on strategy implementation and not just on the thinking and analytical aspects of strategic management.
  • It explores the idea that strategy is often emergent, messy and experimental, unlike other strategic management books, which unrealistically portray it as a neat, analytical and rational process.
  • It unpacks the recent concept that other strategists, not only just senior management, influence strategic direction.
  • It recognises strategy as something people do rather than something an organisation possesses. Since people are building blocks of strategy, it is a cognitive and political activity.
  • It uses primary research conducted among southern African top and middle managers and draws on these managerial perspectives to enrich the text with first-hand accounts of strategy experience.

The second edition features a number of new chapters, focusing on strategy implementation and change management, resource allocation and responsible leadership. It also includes a more detailed coverage of managing strategic risk.

This book presents a unified and global view of macroeconomics, enabling students to see the connections between the short-run, medium-run, and long-run. The book is organised in a flexible manner around two central parts: A core and a set of three major extensions. The core provides students with a unified view of macroeconomics; The extensions offers increased depth on the subject matter; and current macroeconomic events are integrated into each chapter of the book within the text and detailed boxes. Each box shows students how they can use what they've learned to get an understanding of economics in the real-world. It offers an underlying model that draws the implications of equilibrium in three sets of markets: the goods market, the financial markets and the labour market. Features two chapters, "The crisis" and "Monetary policy" provide updated information. Focus boxes convey the life of macroeconomics today and reinforce the lessons from the models, making them more concrete and easier to grasp. South African data, examples and terminology are meaningfully integrated throughout the text. The chapter on exchange rates provides an accessible treatment of the topic, reinforcing an understanding of the concepts with South Africa in mind. Content on inflation, activity and nominal money growth from the 5th edition has been integrated into chapter 8.

R602 R517 Discovery Miles 5 170 Save R85 (14%) In stock

This text aims to differentiate itself from other business statistics texts in two important ways. It seeks: to present the material in a non-technical manner to make it easier for a student with limited mathematical background to grasp the subject matter; and to develop an intuitive understanding of the techniques by framing them in the context of a management question, giving layman-type explanations of methods, using illustrative business examples and focusing on the management interpretations of the statistical findings. This further edition continues the theme of using Excel as a computational tool to perform statistical analysis. While all statistical functions have been adjusted to the Excel (2013) format, the statistical output remains unchanged. Using Excel to perform the statistical analysis in this text allows a student: To examine more realistic business problems with larger datasets; To focus more on the statistical interpretation of the statistical findings; and to transfer this skill of performing statistical analysis more easily to the work environment. Its overall purpose is to develop a management student's statistical reasoning and statistical decision-making skills to give him or her a competitive advantage in the workplace.

All organisations – from modest start-ups to multinational corporations – can benefit from an effective marketing strategy, as it serves as a roadmap for the entire business. By formulating a coherent and well-considered marketing strategy, organisations can promote their business, cater to the right types of clients and allocate their resources correctly, all while safeguarding the reputation of the organisation.

Strategic Marketing is structured around the four key questions facing organisations and top management when deciding on their strategic direction:

1. Where are we now?
2. Where do we want to be?
3. How will we get there?
4. Did we get there?

In addressing these questions, the book covers topics such as:

  • analysis of the customer, competitor and market
  • competitive market strategies
  • refocusing and leveraging the business
  • sustainable competitive advantage
  • going global and selecting strategies for the way forward

Written with the undergraduate student in mind, Strategic Marketing offers a comprehensive view of the current developments and challenges facing the marketing world, and shows how an effective strategic basis is a valuable tool for addressing these challenges and providing strategic direction to the organisation. In this new edition two new chapters on branding and electronic marketing strategies have been included, making this an essential guide to contemporary strategic marketing.
