Practising Strategy - A Southern African Context (Paperback): Peet Venter Practising Strategy - A Southern African Context (Paperback)
Peet Venter 1
R533 Discovery Miles 5 330 Within 4 - 8 working days

Given the common acknowledgement that strategy implementation is the greatest challenge to managers in the 21st century and the greatest reason for strategy failure we decided to focus on strategy implementation. Rather than promoting the unrealistic idea of strategy as a purely rational and deliberate outcome, this book acknowledges and explores the idea that strategy is often emergent, messy and experimental. We focus on strategy as something that people do rather than something that an organisation possesses. Since people are the building blocks of strategy, we recognise the fact that strategy is both a cognitive and a political activity.

When people think about the business world, they tend to think more about the political economy of operating environments than the intricacies of ethics and diversity management in offshore locations. However, all these factors are equally pertinent to successful global business management and a successful international business.

Globalisation and technological innovation also need to be considered. And while the controversy that surrounds globalisation has tainted the proceeds of growth and economic prosperity, the improvement in quality of life brought about by technological advances in global financial integration cannot be overemphasised.

This text aims to differentiate itself from other business statistics texts in two important ways. It seeks: to present the material in a non-technical manner to make it easier for a student with limited mathematical background to grasp the subject matter; and to develop an intuitive understanding of the techniques by framing them in the context of a management question, giving layman-type explanations of methods, using illustrative business examples and focusing on the management interpretations of the statistical findings. This further edition continues the theme of using Excel as a computational tool to perform statistical analysis. While all statistical functions have been adjusted to the Excel (2013) format, the statistical output remains unchanged. Using Excel to perform the statistical analysis in this text allows a student: To examine more realistic business problems with larger datasets; To focus more on the statistical interpretation of the statistical findings; and to transfer this skill of performing statistical analysis more easily to the work environment. Its overall purpose is to develop a management student's statistical reasoning and statistical decision-making skills to give him or her a competitive advantage in the workplace.
