Globalization of management education : changing international structures, adaptive strategies, and the impact on institutions : report of the AACSB International Globalization of Management   Education Task Force / [AACSB International ].  /ADD.  AUTHOR   AACSB International. Globalization of Management Education Task Force.  2011   NOTES  Rarely, if ever, have business schools experienced change as far-reaching and powerful as during the current wave of globalization. Understanding these changes, and their implications, was the charge given to an AACSB Task Force on     Globalization of Management Education. In this comprehensive  report, the task force explores broad globalization trends in management education that command the attention of any  individual or institution striving to navigate in today’s  environment. Then, by exploring individual business school strategies, it provides valuable insights into how business s chools can and should respond. The report aims to encourage and guide business schools to embrace globalization in ways  that are mission-appropriate, manageable given available resources, and meaningful to the stakeholders being served. For organizations serving business schools, it will be a catalyst for action that elevates and improves business schools’ capabilities. Readers will be left with the conviction that great  opportunities exist for business schools to move from keeping pace with the sweeping changes of globalization, to  leading the way.  –  ISBN   085724941X   –  GIB 658.0071 GLOBALIZATION

The click moment : seizing opportunity in an unpredictable world / Frans Johansson.  NOTES  The Click Moment is about two very simple but highly provocative  ideas. The first is that success is random-far more random than we would like to believe. The second is that there are a number  of specific actions that we, as individuals and organizations,               can take to capture this randomness and focus it in our favor.   Johansson uses stories of successful people and companies  throughout history to illustrate the specific actions we can take to create more click moments, place lots of high-potential bets, open ourselves up to chance encounters, and harness the complex forces of success that follow.  –  ISBN   9781591844938.  –    GIB 650.1 JOHANSSON
