Financial professionals have long faced the challenge of accurately valuing companies that are difficult to value using conventional methodologies. Years ago, this challenge was most keenly felt in the "dot-com" industries, and many professionals fell victim to the "dark side," creating values that were simply unsustainable.

Harry Anthony Patrinos & Felipe Barrera-Osorio & Tazeen Fasih

Decentralized Decision-Making in Schools: The Theory and Evidence on School-Based Management by Harry Anthony Patrinos & Felipe Barrera-Osorio & Tazeen FasihAn increasing number of developing countries are introducing School-Based Management (SBM) reforms aimed at empowering principals and teachers or at strengthening their professional motivation, thereby enhancing their sense of ownership of the school. Many of these reforms have also strengthened parental involvement in the schools, sometimes by means of school councils. SBM programs take many different forms in terms of who has the power to make decisions as well as the degree of ecision-making devolved to the school level. While some programs transfer authority only to school principals or...

The instant messaging generation, wired and integrated into broad, flat networks almost from birth, will not function as their predecessors did when injected into the social networks that form their professional organizations.

Networks increase interdependencies, which creates challenges for managing risks. This is especially apparent in areas such as security and enterprise risk management, where the actions of a single player in an interconnected network can wreak havoc on everyone in the network.

Telecommunications: Network Strategies for Network Industries?

Kevin Werbach

Telecommunications: Network Strategies for Network Industries? by Kevin Werbach

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.

Telecommunications is a networked business, yet it traditionally has resisted a network-based view in its strategies and business models. In this chapter, Kevin Werbach explores this paradox, contrasting the worldview of Monists such as AT&T, who see the infrastructure as inseparable from the network, and Dualists such as Google, who see the network and its applications as distinct from the underlying infrastructure. Not surprisingly, AT&T is a proponent of...

The Business Model as the Engine of Network-Based Strategies by Christoph Zott & Raphael Amit

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.

Zott and Amit explore the role of business models in creating value through networks. They review earlier, firm-centric views of value creation, including Porter's value chain, the resource-based view, and the transaction costs approach. They point out that business models go well beyond classic views of network theory (e.g., topography and structure) and include notions of purpose, acceptance, fairness, coherence, and viability. Based on their earlier framework...

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version.

Most companies realize the need to "look outside" for innovation. However, few have a clear understanding about how they can make such a shift toward network-centric innovation--an innovation strategy that is centered on external networks and communities. Managers need more than anecdotal success stories about externally focused innovation, and they need more specific guidance than the "one size fits all" prescriptions of open innovation. The authors argue...

If you accept, in the words of Thomas Friedman, that "the world is flat," how do you need to reshape your organization, management, and thinking for this new terrain?

Preventing Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing: A Practical Guide for Bank Supervisors by Pierre-Laurent Chatain & John McDowell & Cedric Mousset"Money laundering and terrorist financing are serious crimes that affect not only those persons directly involved, but the economy as a whole. According to international standards, every bank has the obligation to know its customers and to report suspicious transactions. Although these obligations sound straightforward, they have proved challenging to implement. What information precisely has to be gathered? How should it be recorded? If and when does one have to file a suspicious transaction report? It is here that a supervisor can play a crucial role in helping supervised institutions; first,...

Managers often must make decisions that depend on decisions in other parts of the organization. These interactions create a network of interdependent choices and make strategizing difficult. In this chapter, the authors explore the intersection between organizing and strategizing. Motivated by real examples that run contrary to conventional wisdom, the authors examine how firms organize themselves to strategize well. In particular, they examine "premature...
