Japanese Multinationals in the Global Economy (Hardcover): Paul W. Beamish, Andrew Delios, Donald J. Lecraw Japanese Multinationals in the Global Economy (Hardcover)
Paul W. Beamish, Andrew Delios, Donald J. Lecraw
R2,976 Discovery Miles 29 760 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Japanese Multinationals in the Global Economy goes beyond traditional methods of research in international business by providing new simple data comparisons on the global operations of Japanese firms. A key aim of this book is to encourage other researchers to explore a new data source and expand and shape their own studies on multinationals. This book will be a significant addition to the debate on the behaviour of multinational firms because it avoids the problems and restrictions involved using national government data and individual case studies. The book presents key information based on the most extensive samples of multinationals at the subsidiary level using both cross sectional data and data over time. The authors provide a direct comparison of US subsidiaries, using the established Harvard Multinational Enterprise database, and Japanese subsidiaries, using the much less well-known Toyo Keizai annual data. Key features include: * a summary description of the Toyo Keizai database * comparisons of Japanese and US multinationals based on the dates the subsidiaries entered the parent's system, annual sales levels and the equity level of the subsidiary * the data includes employment levels, expatriate management, ownership patterns and joint venture ownership structures * new data on the performance of Japanese subsidiaries is measured using several dimensions and illustrates important recent trends After each data set the authors briefly discuss the information available pointing the way for new research and more in-depth analysis. This book will be a vital source for international business researchers and corporate managers as well as government agencies and international organizations concerned with multinational enterprises, trade theory and business strategy, international economics, organizational behaviour and business history.

Joint Venturing (Paperback, New): Paul W. Beamish Joint Venturing (Paperback, New)
Paul W. Beamish
R1,105 Discovery Miles 11 050 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This short, reader-friendly book is about best practice in joint ventures: the factors and processes which lead to success. Every year, corporations establish thousands of joint ventures (JVs), investing hundreds of billions of dollars. In fact, between 25% and 40% of all foreign investments take place via equity JVs. The use of JVs and strategic alliances has been rapidly growing. I've worked as a joint venture facilitator for Fortune 500 and other corporations for many years. The senior executives in these organizations often noted that the decision-making format I used with them would make a great book. This is it. The key purpose of the book is to demonstrate that joint ventures can work. They require however an open mind, and the willingness to work through a series of questions I provide. These relate to: testing the strategic logic; partnership and fit; shape and design; and operating the JV. Contrary to the perceptions of some, JVs can be just as profitable and survive just as long as wholly owned subsidiaries. They can in fact be effectively managed, and they are not going to cause a firm to lose its proprietary technology.Partnerships can work extremely well, and often, placing less emphasis on ""control"" is the way to go. If one is willing to acknowledge and respect that someone else (here a partner) has much to contribute, a stronger enterprise can result. True JVs can result in more stable and sustainable business, benefiting all partners, in whatever country they are located. The format of the book is intentionally conversational. It uses the Socratic method (question, answer, question, answer) which works so effectively in a case study classroom. Here the ""classroom"" is several business class seats on an international flight. This book is written for practicing managers and executives. Those contemplating the formation of a JV and those currently engaged in JVs will see improvement in the duration and performance of their collaborative ventures by following the recommended actions. A second audience is business schools and academics. The book is ideal for MBA, executive MBA and non-degree executive education courses or modules focused on JVs, alliances, cooperative strategies, etc.

R1,759 Discovery Miles 17 590 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Mergers and Acquisitions: Text and Cases provides guiding frameworks and information on Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), complemented by a set of well-matched cases. The purpose is not to rehash the existing set of M&A books, but to provide real-world examples of situations that allow the reader to utilize the core concepts and processes in M&A. The authors present a process-based framework of M&A, within which the reader is given in-depth information about the steps in doing deals. The reader then has the ability to apply these concepts and frameworks to the full-length cases. The book can be used as a stand-alone text because it provides good coverage of the entire M&A process. In order to more specifically focus on any particular aspect of M&A, the text can easily be supplemented with focused materials.

There is an overview chapter and seven case studies of Canadian and American-based businesses.

The studies cover a variety of sectors such as telecommunication, finance, and engineering services. The authors highlight a range of issues that have to be resolved when operating in particular countries. The outcome of the bargaining process on entry into another country, for example, or the approach taken in personnel relations, can be critical to success or failure.
