The Dynamics of Strategy

It has been a while since my last post. During the last weeks, I have been listening, writing, photographing, watching and discussing with various people about the topic of happiness strategies. After much explorative research I can finally share some of my findings online. Why do explorative research? Studying scientific literature in the analysis phase of this project has given me the necessary framework of knowledge to base this project on. Naturally, contemplating this information has brought about new questions. Having found out how various happiness strategies may have a positive impact on our lives, I wondered much about ...
The word ‘dynamics’ appears frequently in discussions and writing about strategy, and is used in two distinct, though equally important senses. The dynamics of strategy and performance concerns the ‘content’ of strategy – initiatives, choices, policies and decisions adopted in an attempt to improve performance, and the results that arise from these managerial behaviors. The dynamic model of the strategy process is a way of understanding how strategic actions occur. It recognizes that strategic planning is dynamic, that is, strategy-making involves a complex pattern of actions and reactions. It is partially planned and partially ...

Austrian Economics and Strategic Management « Organizations and ...
In terms of direct influence, the impact of Austrian economics (AE) on strategic management is fairly limited (e.g., Jacobson, 1992; Young et al., 1996; Foss et al., 2008). Different kinds of industrial economics, namely the SCP approach, the Chicago-UCLA school, and game theoretical industrial economics,  have clearly been stronger influences. However, the points of contact and even overlap between the mainstream of strategic management and AE are many, and AE has the potential to contribute to the further development of the field. The Austrian tradition begins with Carl Menger (1871), who emphasized the process aspects of ... market research, surveys and trends


Advanced Manufacturing Technology Investment Patterns | American ...
Researchers have portrayed the factory of the future as based on AMTs and the economies of scope they engender: paperless, almost workerless, and possessing the ability to produce a large variety of products cost effectively and in lot sizes as small as one (Goldhar and Jelinek 1983; and Nemetz and Fry 1988). Many companies are now achieving �factory of the future� type success. Allen-Bradley, Cummins Engine, and Ingersoll Milling are widely cited as classic examples of the ability of AMTs to revolutionize the ways in which products are manufactured (Lei and Goldhar 1991). Although these success stories provide powerful ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
A New Strategy Framework for Coping with Turbulence - The Magazine ...
In turbulent environments, market leaders must repeat innovations, establish customer networks, sense the flow of new products, and share responsibility for new strategy throughout the firm. They must also balance the firm’s capabilities for leveraging, strengthening, and diversifying its distinct assets or skills. The second feature of Infocom is the increasing returns to scale that this industry offers. As Arthur observes, parts of the economy that are resource-based (agriculture, mining, and so on) are subject to diminishing returns to scale. 5 Products or companies that get ahead in such a market eventually run into ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The recovery is losing steam, fast
Another day, another lousy piece of economic data. The 27.2 percent fall in existing home sales in July was far below analysts' official expectations (though in line with some of the whisper numbers that close watchers of housing data were expecting). And financial markets have again taken notice; money continues gushing into safe U.S. Treasury bonds, sending the yield on those bonds to 2.52 percent as of 11 a.m. (it reached as low as 2.48 percent earlier this morning). There's a pattern here, and it's not a good one. Virtually every major economic indicator to come out in the past two months has been ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Steel Price Intelligence : What is the best way to model the ...
When bidding for a project steel prices that you consider in your costing happens to be the deciding factor whether you win the job or do another round of failure analysis to drive home the point. Because this is a market driven cost parameter, it is a risk, and the best way to tackle this is to work out the right "average cost of steel" for the ENTIRE PROJECT PERIOD rather than take the spot rate at the time of tender and add a fat escalation. For working out that cost we need a model. With this objective in mind I welcome inputs to my subject question. Thanks. Thank you all for sparing your time to answer my question. While ...
WikiAnswers - What were the 14 principles of Henry Fayol
(1841-1925) a French mining engineer, developed 14 principles of management based on his management experiences. These principles provide modern-day managers with general guidelines on how a supervisor should organize her department and manage her staff.

A manager has official ...
