              Management Buyouts (MBOs) first came to prominence in the US during the early 1980s, and have subsequently become a global phenomenon. At its peak, the total value of MBO transactions in Western Europe was about EURO23 billion. The MBO transaction is therefore a highly significan...t transaction within the corporate restructuring landscape This unique go to reference goes beyond the purely financial perspective, incorporating related disciplines including strategy, organizational change, and HRM. It will be an invaluable reference source on MBOs for researchers and advanced students as well as those interested in the broader areas of corporate restructuring and ownership change.

              The Routledge Companion to Mergers and Acquisitions
               

              The Routledge Companion to Mergers and Acquisitions (Hardback)

              Mergers and Acquisitions (M&As) are events that attract considerable interest from academics and practitioners for their implications on individuals, organizations and societies. Today there exists a large amount of empirical research analyzing M&As from the perspectives of the a...cquiring firms, from different research paradigms, using different methods and studying different units of analysis. Yet, despite all this research, and the multiple theoretical and methodological approaches used, there is still a lot to learn about M&As and their effects on the organizations and stakeholders involved. The Routledge Companion to Mergers and Acquisitions does not intend to replicate existing collections of papers one may find in other handbooks. Rather it explores a different journey into this multifaceted phenomenon; focusing on issues rather than on functional perspectives in order to rejuvenate often taken for granted concepts in M&A studies. The Companion employs a wealth of international contributions who explore a variety of M&A issues using a variety of research methods, in different settings across the globe offering a more holistic overview of M&A by considering both differences and areas of agreement. Drawing together well respected scholars as well as rising stars of the discipline, The Routledge Companion to Mergers and Acquisitions provides a comprehensive examination of the subject from an organizational and issues perspective, helping to define the field and furthering the literature within the discipline. In doing so, The Routledge Companion to Mergers and Acquisitions will be a hugely useful resource for students and researchers as well as practitioners alike.

              Launched in April 2006, the United Nation's Principles for Responsible Investment has been signed by 860 financial institutions, representing more than 25 trillion US$ in the first five years of their existence. This means that roughly 25% of the world's financial institutions ha...ve made some commitment to invest their assets in a way, which consider not purely financial but also some environmental, social or governance (ESG) criteria. This trend to invest responsibly is expected to strengthen even further as a consequence of the financial crisis, which resulted in considerable doubt regarding certain financial theories. However, no edited book has been published on the topic to date, which functions as general overview on research insights and market structures to represent a focal point of reference for both, academics and practitioners. This handbook will provide a prestige reference work which offers students and researchers an introduction to current scholarship and international structures in the expanding discipline of responsible investment.

              The visual constitutes an increasingly significant element of contemporary organization, as post-industrial societies move towards economies founded on creative and knowledge-intensive industries. The visual has thereby entered into almost every aspect of corporate strategy, oper...ations, and communication, reconfiguring basic notions of management practice and introducing new challenges in the study of organizations. This text provides a comprehensive insight into the ways in which organizations and their members visualize their identities and practices and how they are viewed by those who are external to organizations, including researchers. With contributions from leading academics across the world, The Routledge Companion to Visual Organization is a valuable reference source for students and academics interested in disciplines such as film studies, entrepreneurship, marketing, sociology and most importantly, organizational behaviour.

              The field of Human Resource Development (HRD) has grown in prominence as an independent discipline from its roots in both management and education since the 1980s. There has been continual debate about the boundaries of HRD ever since. Drawing on a wide and respected internationa...l contributor base and with a focus on international markets, this book provides a thematic overview of current knowledge in HRD across the globe. The text is separated into nine sections which explore the origins of the field, adjacent and related fields, theoretical approaches, policy perspectives, interventions, core issues and concerns, HRD as a profession, HRD around the world, and emerging topics and future trends. An epilogue rounds off the volume by considering the present and future states of the discipline, and suggesting areas for further research. The Routledge Companion to Human Resource Development is an essential resource for researchers, students and HRD professionals alike.

              Although the world's poorest inhabited continent, Africa has recently shown signs of being a source of economic growth in the coming decades, with increased foreign investment - notably from China - and huge growth in GDP from a number of African states. In contrast to the heavin...g weight of books focusing on business opportunities in Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America, Africa has been poorly served by academic publishing. This compendium of scholarship offers cutting-edge knowledge relating to business in Africa. The objectives of this collection include: To shed new light on the socio-cultural and historical underpinnings of business practice in Africa and their implications for promoting entrepreneurship and business behaviour in the region To consider the important constraints on business activities in Africa, and the emerging 'best practice' for redressing their real and potential impacts To facilitate a better understanding of contemporary business practice in Africa through the application of relevant theories and models, including emergent ones. The Routledge Companion to Business in Africa will be a valuable reference source for students and academics studying and researching in this field.

              The Routledge Companion to Identity and Consumption
               

              The Routledge Companion to Identity and Consumption (Hardback)

              Edited by Ruvio, Ayalla A.; Belk, Russell W.

              Tell me what you eat, I'll tell you who you are, said Anthelme Brillat-Savarin. Today You are what you consume is more apt. Barbara Krueger's ironic twist of Descartes - I shop therefore I am - has lost its irony. Such phrases have become commonplace descriptions of our identity ...in the contemporary world. In our materialistic world it seems as if there is no debate that our consumption behavior is fused with our self-identity - shaping it, changing it and often challenging it. The Routledge Companion to Identity and Consumption introduces the reader to state-of-the-art research, written by the world's leading scholars regarding the interplay between identity and consumption. Surprisingly, although consumption has become an inherent part of our self definition, to date, there is no book that offers a comprehensive overview of the research in this important area. This Companion seeks to rectify that by presenting a broad perspective on cutting-edge research on the dynamics of self-identity and consumption. As such, the chapters in this book will address diverse issues regarding the ways identity affects our consumption behavior and vice-versa. With chapters discussing the theory, research and practical implications of these relationships, including the way they change across our life span, their expression within different social, cultural, and religious contexts, and our tangible and virtual manifestations of identity via material goods and services, this book will be a valuable reference source for students and academics from a variety of disciplines.
