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?

Did you know that, in South Africa, 70% to 80% of small businesses fail within the first five years of their establishment? Research indicates that this failure is often due to a lack of understanding of basic business concepts by the entrepreneur. In the competitive South African business environment, it is essential that aspiring entrepreneurs and new business owners have a solid foundation of knowledge on which to build sustainable businesses.

Entrepreneurship and how to establish your own business (6th edition) is a foundational book covering the key areas of entrepreneurship and small business development.

Understanding macroeconomics (Paperback, 2nd ed): Philip Mohr, Cecilia van Zyl, Anmar Pretorius Understanding macroeconomics (Paperback, 2nd ed)

R305 R271 Discovery Miles 2 710 Save R34 (11%) Ships in 7 - 10 working days

Macroeconomics is concerned with the economy as a whole. In macroeconomics, we develop an overall view of the economic system and we study total (or aggregate) economic behaviour. The emphasis is on topics such as total production, income and expenditure, economic growth, aggregate unemployment, the general price level, inflation and the balance of payments. Macroeconomics is therefore the world of totals. This second edition of Understanding macroeconomics is a comprehensive revision and restructuring of the first edition, but still against a contemporary South African background. The major changes include the following: the chapter on money has been expanded and moved forward, and the material on the Keynesian model has been consolidated in two separate chapters, instead of being spread over different chapters . There is also a greater emphasis on the role of monetary and fiscal policy. New topics include the role of the ratings agencies and the notion of "radical economic transformation". As in the first edition, the easy style and practical examples make the content extremely accessible. A wealth of relevant information about the South African economy is also provided. A companion to this book, Understanding microeconomics, is also available.

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.

  • Highlights the importance of PR research activities, and places special emphasis on the role of the media in PR, and the differences between traditional and online media.

Major, ongoing change is the distinguishing characteristic of the business environment worldwide and it affects how contemporary organisations operate and deal with change. Organisations still need to do more with less. In addition, they need to provide for the needs of customers who, with more exposure to local and global markets, have higher expectations relating to the cost, quality, speed and innovation of the services and products they purchase from these organisations.

Due to this global need for managing change, ‘new’ forms of organisation are replacing the ‘old’ traditional bureaucracy and presenting managers with unique challenges. Thus managers of contemporary organisations need to take a holistic view of the changes in their environments and need to apply a completely new set of skills.

The approach towards contemporary management principles offered in this publication integrates discussions on vital managerial competencies and skills with information on traditional and essential managerial concepts that have been effective in the past and are still effectively used today in many business organisations.

The emphasis is on the vital role of human resources in the success of an organisation and the need for modern managers to self-actualise and embrace the practice of life-long learning.

Modern day organisations are more dependent on communication to achieve success than ever before. Rapid development and greater complexity of communication technologies, and the growing importance and popularity of social media, means that organisations can no longer rely on traditional methods alone to engage in effective business communication.

Social media and new communication forms, however, come with their own challenges and pitfalls. Organisations need to carefully and strategically consider the use of these new media as part of their effective communication plan.

Effective Business Communication In Organisations, 4th edition, builds on traditional communication forms with up-to-date theory. It discusses new communication trends and the changing nature of communication in businesses.

Entrepreneurs are the core and essence of any economy. Without entrepreneurs, there would be no business and without business, there would be no government, as there would be nobody to pay taxes to finance it. What distinguishes entrepreneurs from the masses, and even from innovative individuals, is that they act on opportunities and create something new, thereby driving economic evolution.

Entrepreneurship - a South African perspective is a guide to becoming a successful entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship - a South African perspective describes and illustrates new venture creation within a South African context: the start-up process, the growth stages and the challenges in the maturity phase of the business. In this fourth edition, all the chapters have been updated and some chapters, including those on international business opportunities and legal aspects, have been substantially revised. Exercises, activities and numerous case studies based on the latest research in South Africa are included.

Entrepreneurship is aimed at undergraduate students at all higher education institutions in South Africa as well as entrepreneurs, managers, management consultants and trainees, developers and presenters of in-house business courses.

Cecile Nieuwenhuizen has previously held the position of head of the Department of Business Management at both Unisa and the University of Johannesburg (UJ). Currently she is the postgraduate and research coordinator in the Department of Business Management at UJ. She obtained her MBL at the Unisa Graduate School of Business Leadership and her PhD in Business Management from the former Potchefstroom University. She is on the editorial board of various academic journals. The late Gideon Nieman was a professor emeritus and former head of the Department of Business Management at the University of Pretoria. His qualifications included a BCom (Accounting) and an MBA from the University of Pretoria, and a PhD from the former Vista University in South Africa. He passed away in 2017.

Most of the research into what constitutes effective leadership emanates from the United States and is not very useful in an African context. Africa is a continent of extraordinary cultural, geographic, economic and political diversity, featuring largely emerging economies and rapid political economic and social development. This book seeks to set leadership theory in the African context. It takes into account typical African circumstances, values and beliefs, designed for the development of leaders' skills and provides practical, real-life examples, exercises and case studies. As well as an overview of the extensive research literature about leadership, the book provides practical, real-life examples, exercises and case studies, so it can be used in a range of management development courses and/or leadership course or workshops. The detailed insights into, and information about, how leadership can be effectively applied in the contemporary African context should help to enhance readers' leadership skills.
