  • Eric K. H. Fok. A Quantitative Research of the Common Good in Strategic Management
    A Quantitative Research of the Common Good in Strategic Management
    Eric K. H. Fok
    This is an integral research in business morality encompassing theology, philosophy, strategic management, quantitative finance and accounting. The worldview is from St. Thomas Aquinas, synthesized with Sorokin's paradigm, Lonergan's and Rahner's theories. The author integrates normative and descriptive streams of morality inquiry into one. The Common Good is the basis of business morality but Capitalism veils it partially for two centuries. It regains attention. By applying global banking industry's financial and philanthropic performance in two Nobel Laureates' quantitative theorems, the author demonstrates that practicing The Common Good gives strategic edge when stockholders' and stakeholders' interests are balanced. People with religions engage the counterfeit, not the real conscience, and living separate business lives i.e. The Separation Thesis. Both are evidenced. The Magisterium rejects various philosophies when they contravene faith. Such rejection is supported...

    Advanced Strategic Thinking
    Pentti Malaska and Karin Holstius
    Visionary management is an elusive concept without a clear role in strategic thinking. A systematic elaboration is called for to show how essential visioning is in a company’s strategic culture.We focus on visionary management and relate it to the development of strategic management by 1) exploring war and business strategy literature 2) clarifying tactical versus strategic and visionary thinking and 3) systematizing the underlying logic of advanced decision making. Elements vital for good decision making in business context were extracted: the logical distinction between strategy and tactics, subordination of tactics to strategy, and flexibility of strategy. A new paradigm of advanced strategic thinking where visionary management is the third layer of strategic management is summarized. The work is based on research over the years and on consultancy in companies and real-life examples of visionary leadership are demonstrated. We show how foresighted leaders guide the company and...

    This book gives a good insight of the mainstream responsible initiatives of hotel enterprises. This work contributes to knowledge by adding a hospitality perspective in the existing literature review surrounding the business case for Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility (CSR). The empirical study features a synergistic value model which is grounded in quantitative and qualitative methodologies. Finally, this book puts forward key recommendations for moving the CSR agenda forward.
