3 Brands Under Fire

Ivan Arthur and Kurien Mathews

Penguin Portfolio, New Delhi, India, 2008, 0670082260 / 9780670082261, First Edition, Paperback, New, 14 x 22 Cm 
Big brands, big companies, big budgets—and yet, things can still go wrong. In fact, four of the country’s most powerful brands were involved in major brand disasters: Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Chocolates, Coca-Cola and Pepsi, and UTI’s Unit-64 were hit by major problems—worms in chocolates, pesticides in colas and a catastrophe in the country’s favorite mutual fund. In Brands under Fire, brand experts Ivan Arthur and Kurien Mathews use these case studies to cut through the common thinking on brand behaviour to submit fresh insights into the brands of the 21st century. In this book, the two authors, together with India’s most respected personalities from the fields of marketing, communication, academics and social science, explore the whole meaning of a brand, not just in the reality of today’s marketplace but also in the new global environment. Are we witnessing the fading out of the traditional concepts of the brand as a deliverer of consumer expectations and the arrival of alternative models? What impact does the reach of new media, aggressive social activism, changing global sensitivities, agricultural, industrial and economic practice, the unpredictability and uncertainty of an increasingly complex environment, and, above all, a fully participating consumer who influences the product and brand dynamics, have on brand behaviour and a brand’s dialogue with the consumer? Brands under Fire questions whether there is a need to re-evaluate our relationship with brands and redesign it to make it more meaningful—to go beyond the traditional concept of the brand as merely a transaction between seller and buyer to new definitions of what today’s brands can be. Brands under Fire will earn a place on the bookshelves of frontline managers, strategists and practitioners alike. Printed Pages: 232. 026722

4 Competing with the Best: Strategic Management of Indian Companies in a Globalizing Arena

Rajnish Karki

Penguin Portfolio, New Delhi, India, 2008, 0670081787 / 9780670081783, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
When after forty years of licence-permit-raj India opened up its markets and took its first tentative steps in the global economy, no one could have imagined that in less than two decades Indian companies would be in a position to shape the global marketplace. With a sea change in their capabilities, beliefs and aspirations, Indian companies today come across as confident, aggressive and world class as they self-assuredly take over multinational giants like Corus. The closest analogy would be to Japanese companies of the early 1970s, and their potential impact on the world of business in coming decades could be as much, if not more. For this, Indian companies need to evolve original approaches, rather than depend on borrowed ideas, to engender inimitable and sustainable advantages in the global marketplace. Rajnish Karki, with over ten years?experience in research and advisory work on the strategic management of Indian organizations, has evolved strategic management approaches for Indian companies, which are original and are grounded in the Indian economic and sociocultural context. In this book he shows how breakthrough strategic management results from seeing the big picture and aspiring high, conceiving well-aligned business and organizational components, and moving on with clarity, commitment and conviction. Competing with the Best bridges the theory and the practice of strategic management, focusing on under-explored yet globally significant aspects of Indian companies. Using the narrow-angle of eight case studies and the wide-angle of patterns and trends at aggregate level, it identifies four viable and effective configurations for Indian companies and describes the process of transformational and incremental changes. Competing with the Best is perhaps the first world-class book on the strategic management of Indian companies—an important constituent of emerging markets—and will prove indispensable for senior and top corporate executives, as well as researchers and students of management Printed Pages: 256. 022593

14 Gods of Management: The Changing World of Organisations

Charles Handy

Penguin Portfolio, New Delhi, India, 2008, 0143102850 / 9780143102854, First Edition, Paperback, New, 14 x 22 Cm 
‘It was always a myth that there is one best way to manage, but it has been a pervasive myth and a damaging one, to both individuals and organizations. The Greeks at least recognized a variety of gods, even if each had his or her favourite. We need a law of requisite variety in management as well as a theory of cultural propriety.? The four gods of the title symbolize the very different styles of management and culture to be found in today’s organizations. Zeus is the dynamic entrepreneur who rules over companies of the club cluture, characterized by speed of decision and rapid, intuitive communication. Apollo, god of order and bureaucracy, is the patron of the role culture, based not on personalities but on definition of the jobs to be done. Athena, goddess of craftsmen, recognized only expertise as the basis of power and influence: hers is the task culture. Dionysus is the god preferred by artists and professionals within the existential culture, people who owe little or no allegiance to a boss. Under this witty and sparkling allegory, Charles Handy, Britain’s foremost business guru, makes a serious analysis of the changing patterns of work and business. Gods of Management is a world bestseller which is required reading for managers, business students and everyone who wants to be a survivor on a world of constantly changing organizational culture.

20 Managing in Changing Times: A Guide for the Perplexed Manager

Sid Lowe (ed.)

Response Books, New Delhi, India, 2010, 8132102339 / 9788132102335, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
This book brings together distinguished writers from diverse fields and their specialised perspectives on new ideas and the challenges they pose to the hegemony of neo-classical scientific management. It explores various possibilities for the future development of the understanding of management and organisation in the context of new economic conditions taking shape in both the East and the West. The focus on these makes this volume topical. It provides today’s managers with alternatives to conventional approaches to management that are now facing a credibility crunch. Managing in Changing Times shows the manager that there are no easy, quick-fix, off the shelf solutions to complex problems. Solutions require thinking and action with multiple perspectives and require considerable effort to master. This imparts the book a global appeal as it speaks to every manager. The initial chapters present the ideas of Schumacher and Capra which, the author shows, could be used as catalysts to evolve a post-scientific global management era. The book will be a handy reference material for students of management, managers and management pundits. Printed Pages: 412. 029618

31 Towards Personal Excellence: Psychometric Tests and Self-Improvement Techniques for Managers

Seema Sanghi

Response Books, New Delhi, India, 2007, 0761935045 / 9780761935049, Second Edition, Paperback, New, 
From the Foreword by Udai Pareek, ‘Even though the need for self-development and increasing the level of excellence and effectiveness is high, people do not have enough time for self-study, nor for attending courses being offered. Moreover, people may like to go at their own pace, select the time they can find to devote to self-development, and choose the areas more relevant to them at that time. The present volume seems to fulfil these needs—to help the readers to pick up the areas they are more concerned with? Seema Sanghi has simplified the various concepts and theories in the form of practical hints for increasing excellence of various personal and interpersonal skills. Howsoever busy an individual may be, he or she can use the book to review his/her level of effectiveness, and use the tips to enhance it.? The second edition of this enormously successful book is packed with more ways to maximize your potential with added sections on self-evaluation. This edition contains more ‘mirror image?questionnaires covering a wider scope of multiple managerial competencies, including creativity and innovation. The book contains six pilot-tested modules each with a cluster of skills and a self-assessment questionnaire (with response sheets), which enables the reader/user to record individual strengths and weaknesses to keep track of the process of learning. The author covers the following areas: ?Managerial Skills ?Communication Skills ?Group Dynamics Skills ?Environment Management Skills ?Self-enhancement Powers ?Career Planning.
