More for Less? Exploring the Economic Dimensions of Multilateral Collaboration in Military Aerospace Projects

Faced with declining defence budgets and spiralling weapon costs, international collaboration in military production appears both a sensible and attractive ‘value for money’ solution. International collaboration offers in theory the opportunity for both cost- and risk-sharing between members of the collaborating group, making military projects feasible that could not be entertained (financially or perhaps technologically) by one country or one company.

Management Development Program: An Epirical Approach

Management Development (MD) is a conscious and systematic process to control the development of managerial resources in the organization for the achievement of an antirational goals and strategies. Many organizational analyses have over the years been struck with the analogy of the biological organism and the work organization. They have identified four or sometimes five stages in the organizational cycle. Study of these cycles may help in management development, but there are constraints in the way.

Urban Development, Flood and Disaster Management: Challenges of Contemporary Urban Planning Perspectives

Urban development involves changes in the economic, social and spatial dimensions of a geographical area producing transformations based on complex environmental factors and their interactions. These transformations are taking place in 90% of the world cities, resulting in increase in dependency on urban services, economic opportunities, resources and infrastructure. Regrettably, it constitutes one of the anthropogenic causes of floods and flooding in urban areas, causing disasters to lives and materials. Flood disaster management can be better achieved in urban areas through urban planning.

Organizational Changes towards International Growth

In this research, we examine how international growth places demands on management, and the factors that impact on how managers of internationalizing firms respond to these challenges. We start with the premise that the human resource (HR) function does not operate in a vacuum, and that HR activities are determined by, and influence, organizational factors. We cover the following areas as structural responses to international growth; control and coordination mechanisms; mode of operation used in various international markets; effect of responses on human resource management approaches and activities.

Grand Strategy in Grand Complexity Consolidating Ideas, Interests, and Resources in a Postmodern World   Review Article

Grand Strategy in Grand Complexity Consolidating Ideas, Interests, and Resources in a Postmodern World

For Liddell Hart, war is a prerequisite for grand strategy. In his view, grand strategy should “look beyond the war to the subsequent peace” and seek to combine all instruments of national power and the nation’s resources “to avoid damage to the future state of peace – for security and prosperity”. On the contrary, the U.S. engagements in Afghanistan and Iraq suggest that a grand strategy is not a prerequisite to age war. Hence, why not think about grand strategy before the next war? The problem is, of course, that the future cannot be predicted.

Bismarck’s Leadership: Beyond Good and Evil

This paper assesses Bismarck’s strategic successes, personality, and leadership skills. It argues that Bismarck was an effective strategic leader in spite of a lack of - in today’s view - essential leadership traits. Bismarck’s Realpolitik was only little influenced by moral constraints in exchange for strategic effectiveness. Bismarck’s leadership style may be described by a “morality of the master“, disregarding widely accepted moral standards, which Nietzsche has dismissed before as nothing more than the morality of the ruled. Bismarck’s leadership is a lesson in tactical means justifying the strategic ends.
