Corporate Superpower: Cultivating A Winning Culture For Your Business
WildBlue Press
March 02, 2018
Many organizations today find themselves stagnating, struggling just to keep up in today’s rapidly changing environment. Companies rise and fall with alarming rapidity. Employees and managers have little or no loyalty to their organizations and are always on the lookout for a bigger pay check or the next step in their own careers. All of this presents major problems for any group, whether a gas station, church or international corporate powerhouse. And they can all be traced back to one thing – culture. Culture is the soul of any organization. A strong culture breeds loyalty, innovation, and success. A weak culture will breed cynicism, apathy, instability, and the eventual demise of the organization. Yet, culture is an often overlooked aspect of business thinking and strategy. However, there are a lot of organizations with counterproductive cultures in which culture is an inhibitor, slowing down all processes and increasing transaction, governance and production costs. This issue is rarely discussed but very often faced by all of us. Positive culture can’t be maintained without such critical factors as respect, job satisfaction, involvement, loyalty, shared affection, preparedness to change, and responsibility, which defines the engagement of everyone in an organization. Teamwork, innovativeness, professionalism, accountability, shared vision, and trust form the main asset of any organization, its metaphysical resources. They define the nature of psychological power residing in culture and have direct impact on a company’s performance and achievement of its goals. Whether or not this potential is realized depends on how effectively it is exploited. In this book, a reader will learn what culture is, why it is important and how to fix it when it goes wrong. Leaders, management, as well as employees on the front lines will benefit from the discussion. This book is for those rising above the ordinary every day.

Organisational Anatomy
Cambridge Scholars Publishing
May 01, 2016
This book offers a discussion of a new management concept, Organisational Anatomy, which views organisational processes and functions from a biological perspective. This approach naturally explains the ongoing internal and external organisational processes and optimum configuration of different organisations. Organisations are live creatures which are breathing, functioning, moving and developing inside their specific environments. Biological examples offer a useful way of making sense of complex ideas, because they can be related to everyday existence. As such, this allows the reader to intuitively understand the organisations where they work and with which they interact. By classifying different types of organisations and looking at their biological functions, Organisational Anatomy links existing theories and discusses five archetypes of organisations, namely producers, knowledge-dependent, location-dependent, donor-dependent and state-affiliated organisations. By looking into their specific features, the characteristics of organisations of different ages and levels of maturity, the access and utilisation of resources, and the development of productive external relations, this book allows insights into the role of each function in achieving superior business performance. The Organisational Anatomy approach allows the development of a holistic picture, and will allow businesses to achieve higher performance and recognise problems and difficulties by considering organisational pathologies and diseases.

Hidden Russia: Informal Relations and Trust
Wren Publications Ltd
April 21, 2014
Breaking into the Russian market has always been a challenging task, particularly for Western organisations, and personal networks play a crucial role in achieving this. However, personal networks that exist in Russian business remain a mystery to Westerners. This has not received adequate attention from academics to-date, even though success depends upon adapting to the Russian culture and business life.
The aim of this book is to address the role of informal relations and trust in Russian society and business. Our findings provide a deeper understanding of the relationship between Russian business and personal relations, thus helping Western practitioners and investors to enter the Russian market and develop strong business-stakeholder relationships. Our intention is not to criticise or dress up the image of Russia but to provide coherent analysis and discussion on how things work there.
Hidden Russia explores the phenomenon of Russian personal networks from inside the mind of Russian business people, revealing peculiarities of the inner life, norms, trust, knowledge transfer, and entry and exit rules Russian business people regularly experience.
