Abstract: Managers often make decisions in organizations without being aware of the results and hence, their effectiveness. I evaluated three decisions managers made during the first weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, using a hypothetical model of the decision-making process (DMP) so as to measure the percentage of effectiveness business results (PEBR) achieved. This article analyzes the impact of DMP on PEBR and identifies similarities and differences among top performing managers. Results reveal that the model not only predicts the PEBR, but also there are positive associations between the predictor variables that give meaning to validates the model, so I designed a comparative scenario by gender, age, company size, highlighting the profile of the managers with the best results. To understand the relationship between DMP and PEBR academics must adopt a perspective that considers not only the acceptance of decisions, but also distinguishes the association forces DMP variables; and managers can use this decision-making model to improve the process and the expected results. Practical implications, limitations and future studies are discussed.

Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic can be divided into two waves: the first is associated with health problems, and the second with economic and environmental problems. However, it is necessary to analyze the existence of a third wave that, in the long run, can have a deeper impact on people's lives. This wave emerged from the virus capacity to accentuate social, economic, political, and cultural inequalities. In this sense, the novel coronavirus has profoundly affected efforts to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), established in the 2030 Agenda, especially with regard to SDG 3, SDG 10, SDG 12 and SDG 16. In that spectrum, this chapter aims to demonstrate how the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic affect compliance with the SDGs. The impact of this pandemic had been such that it is possible that it will mean the beginning of a new era, based on the need for global solidarity and the desire to pursue sustainable development paths. The COVID-19 pandemic provides an opportunity to propose new actions for a more sustainable world, drafting a recovery from economic and social crises that finds comprehensive solutions.

Abstract: The purpose of this study is to revisit the relationship between employee participation and organizational commitment to determine the mediational mechanisms that underlie it. Specifically, the study examines the role of three heretofore unexamined mediators, namely internal communication quality, burnout and job satisfaction and empirically tests multiple alternative explanations/paths for the relationship between employee participation and organizational commitment.,The data for this study were collected using a cross-sectional online survey of 111 IT professionals (e.g. engineers, technicians, etc.) employed at a public IT company (PITC) in the Midwest of the USA.,Overall, the results of this study provide strong support for an indirect relationship between employee work participation and organizational commitment. More specifically, the results of the study show that that relationship is mediated by internal communication adequacy, job satisfaction, as well as the path Burnout—job satisfaction.,This study makes an important contribution to our understanding of how to make the implementation and evaluation of participative practices more effective. It identifies/clarifies the conditions under which participative approaches are likely to induce employees' organizational commitment.

Abstract: Covid-19 is reshaping the domestic workforce. Thousands have lost their jobs throughout this pandemic, and we are seeing a decline in private sector unionism that is unlikely to recover under the current regulatory settings. The implications for democracy are considerable. Using the aviation industry as an example, this article defines industrial democracy, provides an insight into industrial democracy in New Zealand, and argues the case for the regulation of industrial democracy post-Covid-19.

Abstract: Since the initial days of 2020, an array of radical transformations in every domain of business have been seen. This led to the efficient and effective management of manpower to welcome a novel normal era post-pandemic. It requires an updated set of competencies post-COVID-19. The objective of the study is to identify the upcoming challenges and changes to manage manpower post-pandemic, explore the strategic modifications in the competency framework and HR policy, and recognize the changes in the leadership style post-pandemic. The exploratory study uses a systematic review technique to analyze qualitatively the secondary data extracted from the different directory of journals. The study summarizes the findings under two different areas. The first deals with the challenges of the post-pandemic era which include maintenance of business continuity, management of remote work, mental health and emotional stability, employee engagement, etc. Along with these, changes in the roles, activities, skills, competencies, policies, and leadership style occur in the organizations.

Abstract: Examines how organizations identify and respond to conditions of stability and change and classifies responses as appropriate or dysfunctional. Using case study and historical survey approaches, the authors formulate conclusions about organizations themselves, individual organization members, and sub-organizational combinations of members. These three perspectives correspond to the organization's goals, individual career aspirations, and internal politicking. Technical progress and development of new organizational forms proceed in tandem; advancement in either field augurs movement in the other field. The inventor requires a suitable milieu and new technology enables further sophisticated forms of organization. Matching the rise of modern industrial concerns, technological research and development has been increasingly professionalized and financially supported by large corporations and government. Firms in (then) newly created industries, such as electronics, face a unique difficulty. Unlike counterparts in established fields, new firms in these industries must respond to rapidly changing market conditions without the benefit of a management experienced in the exigencies of that sector. The authors examine common new-industry responses to planning needs. These include the transfer of technical staff to the sales force and assignment of user needs research to research and development staff. Two important organizational approaches are identified. The mechanistic approach, suitable for stable industries, is marked by precise definition of member function and is highly hierarchical. The organic approach is more appropriate to industries undergoing change and is characterized by fluid definitions of function and interactions that are equally lateral as they are vertical. (CAR)

Abstract: Analyzes how successful firms fail when confronted with technological and market changes, prescribing a list of rules for firms to follow as a solution. Precisely because of their adherence to good management principles, innovative, well-managed firms fail at the emergence of disruptive technologies - that is, innovations that disrupt the existing dominant technologies in the market. Unfortunately, it usually does not make sense to invest in disruptive technologies until after they have taken over the market. Thus, instead of exercising what are typically good managerial decisions, at the introduction of technical or market change it is very often the case that managers must make counterintuitive decisions not to listen to customers, to invest in lower-performance products that produce lower margins, and to pursue small markets. From analysis of the disk drive industry, a set of rules is devised - the principles of disruptive innovation - for managers to measure when traditional good management principles should be followed or rejected. According to the principles of disruptive innovation, a manager should plan to fail early, often, and inexpensively, developing disruptive technologies in small organizations operating within a niche market and with a relevant customer base. A case study in the electric-powered vehicles market illustrates how a manager can overcome the challenges of disruptive technologies using these principles of disruptive innovation. The mechanical excavator industry in the mid-twentieth century is also described, as an example in which most companies failed because they were unwilling to forego cable excavator technology for hydraulics machines. While there is no "right answer" or formula to use when reacting to unpredictable technological change, managers will be able to adapt as long as they realize that "good" managerial practices are only situationally appropriate. Though disruptive technologies are inherently high-risk, the more a firm invests in them, the more it learns about the emerging market and the changing needs of consumers, so that incremental advances may lead to industry-changing leaps.

Abstract: We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before. We do not yet know just how it will unfold, but one thing is clear: the response to it must be integrated and comprehensive, involving all stakeholders of the global polity, from the public and private sectors to academia and civil society.

Abstract: Scholarship on varieties of capitalism (VofC) explores the ways in which the institutions structuring the political economy affect patterns of economic performance or policy making and the distribution of well-being. Contesting the claim that there is one best route to superior economic performance, a number of schemas have been proposed to explain why countries have often been able to secure substantial rates of growth in different ways, often with relatively egalitarian distributions of income. Prominent among them is a VofC analysis focused on the developed democracies that distinguishes liberal and coordinated market economies according to the ways in which firms coordinate their endeavors. On the basis of institutional complementarities among subspheres of the political economy, it suggests that the institutional structure of the political economy confers comparative institutional advantages, notably for radical and incremental innovation, which explains why economies have not converged in the context of globalization. Although this framework is contested, it has inspired new research on many subjects, including the basis for innovation, the determinants of social policy, the grounds for international negotiation, and the character of institutional change. In this issue area, there is promising terrain for further research into the origins of varieties of capitalism, the factors that drive institutional change in the political economy, how institutional arrangements in the subspheres of the political economy interact with one another, the normative underlay for capitalism, and the effects of varieties of capitalism on multiple dimensions of well-being.

Abstract: We examined the antecedents, consequences, and mediational role of team empowerment using 111 work teams in four organizations. The results indicated that the actions of external leaders, the production/service responsibilities given to teams, team-based human resources policies, and the social structure of teams all worked to enhance employee team empowerment experiences. More empowered teams were also more productive and proactive than less empowered teams and had higher levels of customer service, job satisfaction, and organizational and team commitment.
