Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Company formation, Business Plans, grade: 1, Uppsala University, language: English, abstract: Within a world of emerging global markets and rapid technological development, there is a strong demand for entrepreneurship within established companies in order to stay competitive. According to different studies, there is a positive linkage between Corporate Entrepreneurship (CE) and companies performance, which leads to a strong demand from organizations to foster their entrepreneurial culture. The recruitment and selection function within Human Resource Management (HRM) is an essential driver to attract, develop, and retain entrepreneurial people within corporations. The literature proposes that companies should match their selection criteria to the identified dimensions of Entrepreneurial Orientation (EO). However, there is a lack of research if companies have specific HRM practices to select and retain entrepreneurial people. By investigating the recruitment requirements and development possibilities of Swedish-based companies, this study contributes empirical knowledge to the topic of how companies deal with HRM and CE. This information improves the understanding in the Corporate Entrepreneurship literature.

What Does it Take to Get Ahead Now-And Stay There? High performance has always required shrewd strategy and superb execution. These factors remain critical, especially given todays unprecedented business climate. But Rich Karlgaard-Forbes publisher, entrepreneur, investor, and board director-takes a surprising turn and argues that there is now a third element thats required for competitive advantage. It fosters innovation, it accelerates strategy and execution, and it cannot be copied or bought. It is found in a perhaps surprising place-your companys values. Karlgaard examined a variety of enduring companies and found that they have one thing in common; all have leveraged their deepest values alongside strategy and execution, allowing them to fuel growth as well as weather hard times. Karlgaard shares these stories and identifies the five key variables that make up every organizations soft edge: Trust: Northwestern Mutual has built a $25 million dollar revenue juggernaut on trust, the foundation of lasting success. Learn how to create an environment that engenders trust and propels high performance. Smarts: In most technical fields your formal education quickly becomes out of date. How do you keep up? Learn how the Mayo Clinic, Stanford University womens basketball team, and others stay on top by relentlessly pursuing an advantage through smarts. Teamwork: Since collaboration and innovation are a must in the global economy, effective teamwork is vital. Learn how global giant FedEx stays focused and how nimble Nest Labs relies on lean teams with cognitive diversity. Taste: Clever product design and integration are proxies for intelligence because they make customers feel smart. But taste goes further into deep emotional engagement. Specialized Bicycles calls it the elusive spot between data truth and human truth. How can you consistently make products or services that trigger these emotional touch points? Story: Companies that achieve lasting success have an enduring and emotionally appealing story. Whats your companys story? How do you tell it your way? Gain the ability to create a powerful narrative in a world where outsiders often exercise the louder voice. ??? ????????? - ???????? ???????

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich BWL - Unternehmensgründung, Start-ups, Businesspläne, Note: 1,0, Hochschule Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Masterarbeit betrachtet mittelständische Zulieferunternehmen der Automobilindustrie im Spannungsfeld der Globalisierung. Das globale verschwinden von Grenzen wurde unteren anderem getrieben durch revolutionäre technologische Entwicklungen der letzten Jahrzehnte. Ehemalige Grenzen der Logistik und Kommunikation wurden auf dieser Basis überwunden und immer komplexere Produkte möglich. Die Automobilindustrie benötigt zur Herstellung der heutzutage hochtechnisierten Fahrzeuge qualifizierte Zulieferunternehmen mit innovativen Fertigungsverfahren und spezialisiertem Knowhow. Gleichzeitig stagnieren die etablierten Absatzmärkte der Branche und setzen Hersteller und Lieferanten gleichermaßen unter massiven Kostendruck. Um hohe Forschungs- und Entwicklungskosten zu amortisieren, investieren Kraftfahrzeughersteller seit Jahren im Wachstumsmarkt Asien. Dieser bietet niedrigere Produktionskosten und hohe Absatzpotentiale auch in den kommenden Jahren. Das Knowhow der Zulieferunternehmen aus dem Stammland wird durch zunehmend langfristige Kooperationen gesichert. Um dieses in den neuen Märkten gleichermaßen nutzen zu können, fordern Hersteller ihre mittelständischen Zulieferunternehmen auf, diese nach Asien zu begleiten. Eine Chance, die viele kleine und mittelständische Zulieferunternehmen bedingt durch knappe Ressourcen nur mit sehr hohem Risiko aus eigener Kraft nutzen können. Wie können also kleine und mittelständische Zulieferunternehmen die Herausforderung der Internationalisierung meistern, um eine erfolgreiche Unternehmensentwicklung zu ermöglichen? Knappe Ressourcen erfordern eine langfristig und fundiert geplante Internationalisierungsstrategie. Diese Arbeit liefert ein Erklärungsmodell über die Einflussfaktoren, Motive und Strategieoptionen die Zulieferunternehmen bei der Internationalisierung der Unternehmenstätigkeit berücksichtigen müssen, um langfristig auf Auslandsmärkten erfolgreich zu sein.

The work from home phenomenon is thoroughly explored in this illuminating new book from bestselling 37signals founders Fried and Hansson, who point to the surging trend of employees working from home (and anywhere else) and explain the challenges and unexpected benefits. Most important, they show why - with a few controversial exceptions such as Yahoo -- more businesses will want to promote this new model of getting things done. The Industrial Revolutions under one roof model of conducting work is steadily declining owing to technology that is rapidly creating virtual workspaces and allowing workers to provide their vital contribution without physically clustering together. Today, the new paradigm is move work to the workers, rather than workers to the workplace. According to Reuters, one in five global workers telecommutes frequently and nearly ten percent work from home every day. Moms in particular will welcome this trend. A full 60% wish they had a flexible work option. But companies see advantages too in the way remote work increases their talent pool, reduces turnover, lessens their real estate footprint, and improves the ability to conduct business across multiple time zones, to name just a few advantages. In Remote, inconoclastic authors Fried and Hansson will convince readers that letting all or part of work teams function remotely is a great idea--and theyre going to show precisely how a remote work setup can be accomplished. ??????? ????? ? ????? ?????????? ??????? - ???????? ???????????????, ?????????? ???????? 37signals. ???????????, ?????????? ???? ?????????
