John Lowry
R294 Discovery Miles 2 940 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Negotiators might be born, but great negotiators are made.

This book offers a useful and comprehensive approach to negotiation that can springboard a career or a company, one deal at a time.

Business and organizational leaders spend well over half of their professional time engaged in this process. It is the way they do deals, lead employees, and manage relationships. Most leaders learn to negotiate on the job through a long process of trial and error. In today's competitive marketplace, there is no time for experimentation, nor room to make mistakes.

The good news is by mastering negotiation, the next level of success is actually closer than it appears. The actionable advice and practical guidance offered in this book give a roadmap for every type of negotiation.

Through case studies, illustrations, exercises, and personal stories, Lowry shows how to:

  • Make strategic decisions - move from doing what is comfortable to doing what is most strategic.
  • Manage the process - carefully balance the urge to compete with the need to collaborate.
  • Deliver the deal - fine-tune the negotiation process to achieve the desired outcome.

This book makes it easy to join the ranks of leaders who have experienced unprecedented success by making negotiation simple.

Elena Raviola
R2,425 Discovery Miles 24 250 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This revealing book goes behind the scenes of normative principles of media independence to investigate how that independence is actually practiced and realized in everyday working life. Taking an ethnographically rich journey through European news organizations, Elena Raviola exposes the diverse and complex ways in which the ideal of independence is upheld, and at the same time inevitably betrayed, in the organizational life of media companies. Elena Raviola presents a distinct organizational analysis of media independence throughout the book, offering a close study of three news organizations in Europe - the largest Italian financial newspaper Il Sole-24 Ore, the largest Swedish regional newspaper company Stampen and the French pioneer online-only news website Rue89. In each of them, the implications of digitalization on their practices of independence is explored and analyzed. The book ultimately sheds light on how digital technologies are practically reshaping democratic principles such as media independence, while being embedded in the existing organizational and professional structures of democratic societies. Organizing Independence will enrich the reader's understanding of media independence in practice, beyond the normative principles, and so will be a key reference point for researchers in management and organization studies, media studies and anyone interested in the future of media.

R2,910 Discovery Miles 29 100 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

If we want to nurture students as informed, progressive agents of change, we need to adopt non-traditional, transdisciplinary approaches when teaching them about ethics and sustainability. This innovative book demonstrates the best pedagogical techniques and approaches to incorporate sustainability, corporate social responsibility, and ethics in business and law education. Experienced teachers discuss the use of techniques such as Responsible Management Learning (RML) and non-linear decision-making gameplay in education, and find that alternative teaching and learning methods can encourage deep learning, integrated thinking and a transformative consumer research perspective. Forward-thinking, this book emphasises the importance of infusing the values of the United Nation's 17 Sustainable Development Goals into future curriculums, and discusses the eco-centric, embedded, transdisciplinary and personally transformative learning and teaching required to achieve these. With illustrative case studies and real-life reflections from students, it will prove invaluable for researchers of sustainability, corporate social responsibility and business ethics. Its discussions of assessment methods and student wellbeing will also prove a vital resource for educators and policymakers working in higher education in both the UK and internationally.

Innovation, Ethics and our Common Futures - A Collaborative Philosophy (Paperback): Rafael Ziegler Innovation, Ethics and our Common Futures - A Collaborative Philosophy (Paperback)
Rafael Ziegler
R983 Discovery Miles 9 830 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The important yet contradictory role of innovation in society calls for a philosophy of innovation. Critically exploring innovation in relation to values, the economy and social change, Rafael Ziegler proposes a collaborative theory and practice of innovation that aims to liberate possibilities for our common futures. Following cues from the arts and drawing on the innovation literature across the social sciences, this book exposes pro-innovation bias and the gospel of disruptive change. Not only entrepreneurs but also civic networks and tinkerers are discussed as sources of innovation, and social change as a balancing act of innovation, exnovation and restoration. The discussion of capabilitarian, communitarian, liberal, republican and socialist ideas of justice and innovation leads Ziegler to a transformative proposal: 'enough innovation' based on enough for all and with respect for all. This is a thought-provoking read for scholars working on sustainability-transformation, democratic, responsible and social innovation, and philosophy of economics.

World-class experts from the field of negotiation present cutting-edge research on gender and negotiation, highlighting controversies and generating new questions for consideration.

The Global Rise of the Modern Plug-In Electric Vehicle - Public Policy, Innovation and Strategy (Hardcover): John D. Graham The Global Rise of the Modern Plug-In Electric Vehicle - Public Policy, Innovation and Strategy (Hardcover)
John D. Graham
R4,383 Discovery Miles 43 830 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

We may be standing at the precipice of a revolution in propulsion not seen since the internal combustion engine replaced the horse and buggy. The proliferation of electric cars will change the daily lives of motorists, boost some regional economies and hurt others, reduce oil insecurity but create new insecurities about raw materials, and impact urban air quality and climate change. If you want to understand how quickly the transition is likely to occur, and the factors shaping the pace of the transition, this book delivers with a candid, illuminating style. The invention of the lithium-ion battery and its adaptation to the auto sector set the stage for the exciting proliferation of electric cars, beginning with California and Norway. This book focuses on the period from the oil crises of the 1970s to the present, tracing the development of this entirely new industry and its critical supply chain. John Graham delves into the major societal concerns, economic rationales, governmental policies and corporate strategies. He emphasizes that consumer concerns slowed the pace of the transition while spurring more innovation and new policies to persuade reluctant consumers. And he explains why the transition is now occurring much faster in China and Europe than in Japan and the United States. More broadly, the book tells the story of many successes and failures in public policy, technological innovation and corporate strategy. This book provides an in-depth understanding of how people on every continent in the world are contributing to the new electric-vehicle industry, including the raw materials, battery components, electric motors and charging stations. Faculty, students and researchers will appreciate the integrated treatment of the technical, economic, political and international issues. For the practitioner in industry, government and civil society, the book is an engaging look at the roles of key decision makers and organizations, both those favoring electric cars and those opposed.
