This book looks at the latest advances in autonomous driving, demonstrating that a future once considered science fiction is now close at hand.
Acceptance of driverless cars relies on more than just the technology that delivers it; in this book the authors consider the shift in attitudes required for social acceptance and a move towards considering cars one aspect of a wider mobility solution. In addition, a clear demand is arising from
gridlocked megacities across the globe. Autonomous driving offers a solution for the high pollution levels and management of the transport infrastructure where current methods are proving insufficient in places of high population density.
Having highlighted the need for driverless cars, the book concludes with an ambitious agenda to ensure the successful delivery of autonomous driving. Political requirements, including investment in a new infrastructure and a commitment to collaboration across borders factors in the ten-point plan
for governments seeking to establish international leaders in the latest advances in mobility services.
From ethical considerations in the programming of automated driving procedures to changes in attitudes towards car ownership and design, this title is a comprehensive look at the latest revolution in mobility.
Behavioral strategy has evolved as a field the last decades both intellectually and institutionally. This volume brings together scholars from several generations that have led and
defined the behavioral approaches in strategy to reflect on the past, present,
and future of behavioral strategy. Thus, rather than seeking empirical
contributions that would fill in research gaps and expand research in specific
domains, we endeavored to: a) represent the diversity of perspectives that
inform behavioral research in strategic management; b) open up a space for
reflection and provocation by scholars who are widely recognized as thought
leaders both in their respective strands of behavioral strategy research, and
in the field as a whole; and c) offer a set of perspectives and directions for
the field of behavioral strategy at a pivotal moment in its evolution.
The Business and Society (BAS) 360 book series is an annual publication targeting cutting-edge developments in the broad business and society field, such as stakeholder management, corporate social responsibility and citizenship, business ethics, sustainability, corporate governance and others.
Each volume will feature a comprehensive discussion and review of the current ‘state’ of the research and theoretical developments in a specific business and society area. As business and society is an inherently multi-disciplinary scholarly area, the book series will draw from work in
areas outside of business and management, such as psychology, sociology, philosophy, religious studies, economics and other related fields, as well as the natural sciences, education and other professional areas of study.
This volume focuses on research drawn from work grounded in ‘Business Ethics.’ Scholars known in this discipline contribute to a 360-degree evaluation of the theory, including cross-discipline research, empirical explorations, cross-cultural studies, literature critiques and
The book should appeal to a wide range of readers; from emerging and senior business school educators researching and teaching in the business and society field, to doctoral and masters level students across the business, social sciences and natural sciences seeking to learn about this
multi-discipline and sustained field of management study. Business executives and managers could benefit from reading how the business and society field began, the path it has taken and the new, emerging directions that scholars envision for the field.
A breakthrough approach to strategic management is presented in this book. Traditionally, strategic management texts have offered a largely conceptual presentation of the subject followed by a separate and dominant section containing many different types of case studies. This book breaks from that
by having fewer case studies but they are attached to the chapters in which relevant material is presented. This reinforces the subject for student and manager alike. Additionally, important concepts from the academic treatment of strategic management and the practice of it in organizations are
integrated by using findings and drawing implications from the leading strategic management journals and the writings from top business publications. Consequently, all readers will become familiar with the practical tools of strategy management, how to use these tools and solve real world strategy
issues. This book also sorts through the myriad of strategy research and theory to highlight the intellectual pillars which support the subject.

The practice of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been growing in attention, importance, significance, and acceptance in recent decades. CSR has been included in multiple debates, comments, theories, studies and research around the world. In the last decade, Ibero-America (including Brazil,
Portugal, and Spain), has grown in economic terms, and corporate responsible practices have played a key role. A CSR approach in community-based experience has emerged in the last years in this region. This is due to the support of multilateral agencies that have served as a link between government,
private sector and society. However, there are still many inequalities in this region. Therefore, this edited book focuses on how CSR and Corporate Governance in Ibero-America have been employed, analyzed, and examined in different sectors and scenarios (companies, NGOs, higher educational
institutions, government). It does so from theoretical (theory development), conceptual, methodological, and empirical approaches. It takes a trans-regional approach unlike most research which has been focused on studying specific initiatives or experiences in a particular country.
Nowhere is the study of workplace ethics more relevant today than in the context of empowering organizations to meet their goals in corporate social responsibility and sustainability (CSR/S). Aimed at helping organizations uphold their commitments to people and the planet as well as profit, these
are core goals towards which both PR and HR departments now work.
However one major stumbling block is the fact that while internal departments may regularly work closely when managing and communicating with employees, the communication flow tends to be top down. In order to create more socially responsible, sustainable, and ethical organizations, the
communication flow must be more organic and bilateral. The question of how both teams could work together on a more even playing field has escaped scholarly inquiry for years.
Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainability, & Ethical Public Relations: Strengthening Synergies with Human Resources examines ways to make CSR/S an integrated ingredient and ethical hallmark for an organization’s culture. Here authors from around the globe use a variety of research
methods to offer practical, empirical findings, exploring opportunities for employees to serve as a conduit for organizations' CSR/S goals. This book shows how HR-PR department cooperation can fulfil the role of organizational conscience, helping for-profits and non-profits to navigate toward
Entrepreneurship is still regarded by many as in the theory building stage, which has led to some commentaries to suggest that the field is fragmented and at a nascent stage of development.
Developing a critical and constructive position towards current theories, methods, assumptions and beliefs, the book seeks to question the prevailing assumptions currently dominating entrepreneurial researching and practice. The book brings together leading thinkers, practitioners and researchers in
the field to draw upon new theoretical perspectives and approaches as a means of illustrating the inherently social and contextualized nature of entrepreneurial practice, and advance the manner in which we critically think about and engage with various aspects of entrepreneurial practice and
Including a unique combination of studies that illustrate critical perspectives of current entrepreneurship research, the book covers a broad spectrum in terms of topics and approaches, as well as in terms of diversity and critique in their perspectives towards entrepreneurial practice and
IT Service Management (ITSM) is an imperative part of achieving business maturity. Excellence in ITSM has previously been thought of only in terms of quality, customer satisfaction, and reduced costs – or, in other words, casting ITSM as only for technical units and not as part of the larger
picture of business maturity. In this exciting new take on ITSM, leading expert Beverly Weed-Schertzer positions ITSM at the heart of company strategy to build a layered operating model. Delivering ITSM for Business Maturity: A Practical Framework helps business leaders and corporate thinkers
navigate their way to a successful and high performing ITSM model. Using an original combination of yoga science and service management principles, Weed-Schertzer offers business professionals a way of taking back control of their ITSM program, and helps with innovation for those starting a new one.
For anyone in the information technologies profession, or for managers of IT professionals, this book is an unmissable guide to creating a strong, forward-thinking foundation for ITSM processes.
