Buchbeschreibung Oxford Elsevier LTD Okt 2014, 2014. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - Performance Measurement and Management for Engineers introduces key concepts in finance, accounting, and management to project managers who have engineering backgrounds. It focuses these basic concepts on issues of measuring and managing enterprise value. Thus, after defining enterprise value, the book begins by explaining the ways and means of measurement. It then takes up financial measurement, describing and analyzing the typologies of financial indicators while illustrating their advantages and disadvantages. After focusing on measuring enterprise value, the second section takes up managing that value. Like the first, it pursues a double view: using indicators for internal control while employing them to analyze other companies. If engineering project managers possess a source of quantitative and qualitative information about business management, Performance Measurement and Management for Engineers will help them increase their contributions to the business. Explains how main performance indicators are related to the value of the company Reveals how to assess the financial needs of companies in relation to their financial goals and mechanisms (e.g., equity, debt, and hybrid) Describes key information and indicators for assessing the ability of enterprises to create value across time Indicates the profitability sources of different business units 175 pp. Englisch.

Buchbeschreibung Lit Verlag Apr 2016, 2016. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - Criticism has indicated that inadequate academic observance has been spent on the adaption and implementation of generic Business Performance Measurement (BPM) models to specific industry and company contexts leading to a suboptimal practical feasibility. In reflecting these concerns, an approach to improve BPM feasibility is developed based on an industry's specific characteristics. These characteristics are then linked to corresponding generic BPM models. In this vein, practitioners shall be assisted in designing and implementing a sustainable BPM system. This approach gets empirically validated for the Metal Finishing Industry in Germany and the United Kingdom. 296 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9783643907509
Buchbeschreibung Josef Eul Verlag Gmbh Jan 2015, 2015. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - A fundamental challenge that management faces in the twenty-first century is how to exercise adequate control, i. e. how to guide and direct the behaviour of their subordinates. With increasing globalisation firms witness a cross-cultural impact too. Of particular interest is the question of whether to use the standardized form of control similar to the home base of firms or whether to adapt their control practices to the local specificities. Given the meagre state of the literature in management control with a cross-cultural emphasis, this study addresses a real world problem, namely the question whether management control practices are configured similarly or differently across cultures. Relying on a generalized industry sample across four countries (Belgium, Canada, Germany and Poland), this study sought to shed light on one of the more intriguing questions - 'does culture matter' - for specific control areas, in particular for performance measurement, performance evaluation and reward systems. The theoretical foundations are grounded in the cultural framework of the GLOBE project accompanied by thoughts of new institutionalism, stakeholder theory and contingency thoughts. Hypotheses are tested by mean comparisons (ANOVA, ANCOVA). The empirical findings highlight cultural differences for a broader set of control practices and deliver new insights into the intersection of culture and management control. This dissertation crafts a novel topic with high relevance for both researchers and practitioners. The study demonstrates areas for which management control practices should be adapted to the local needs and areas for which those practices could be harmonized in the whole company. This monograph stresses some areas in which future empirical cross-cultural research can benefit, and some areas where conceptual thoughts could be advanced. 304 pp. Englisch.

Buchbeschreibung Springer-Verlag Gmbh Feb 2010, 2010. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - Measuring and managing the performance of a business is one of the most genuine desires of management.
