ALAMANDA DAN CERITANYA: Summary-History Of Management Thought ...
It is easy to forget just how ancient the practice of management is. Only within the last century did people begin to reflect systematically on their experiences and observations in attempts to sort out and identify those managerial practices that seemed to work better than others. These better practices were called principles but more closely resembled guides to managerial thought and action than scientific fact. Henry Fayol was the first to propose a general theory of management. He defined theory as “a collection of principles, rules, methods, and procedures tried and checked by general experience. Fayol’s ... market research, surveys and trends
The Lords of Strategy by Walter Kiechel
It takes some guts to subtitle a business book “The Secret Intellectual History of the New Corporate World.” Even for a genre whose grand overstatements are only rivaled by the diet-books aisle, that is an ambitious tagline. The Lords of Strategy lives up to that subtitle and then some.  It is a grand, sweeping saga that tells the story of how the ill-defined function known as “corporate strategy” emerged in the 60s, systematically took over  boardrooms and MBA classrooms, and altered the business landscape forever. Even though we are only 4 months into 2010, it is pretty likely this is going to be the best business book of the ... market research, surveys and trends

ABSTRACT Michael Porter, the well-known management guru from Harvard Business School developed the concept of "Business Level Generic Strategies" aimed at building and sustaining competitive advantage. The two most important generic strategies suggested by him are cost leadership and differentiation.

A firm that applies both strategies will end up "stuck in the middle" and will not generate above-average returns. This study showed that Porter's contention ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

In the early-1980s, they called it "the seagull model of consulting": You flew out from headquarters, made a few circles around a corporate client's head, deposited a strategy on him, and flew away again. The "seagull model" was a private joke among staffers at Boston Consulting Group, or BCG, the outfit that pretty much created business-strategy consulting. Even they acknowledged (only among themselves, of course) that they weren't involved in implementing the big ideas for which they charged clients a bundle. This state of affairs soon began changing, as BCG increasingly adopted the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
