Regulation and Compliance in Operations (Securities Institute Global Capital Markets)

Автор:

‘Regulation and Compliance in Operations’ looks at how regulation affects the operations function by focusing on regulatory issues and drivers. As regulatory demands ever increasing, it is important for operations teams to be aware of the important regulatory issues which exist globally. Like any other part of an organization in the financial services industry, operations has rules and regulations to comply with. Although many view regulation as being about rooting out rogue tradersand controlling speculators, its role is much more profound than this, and without it many more ‘scandals’ would undoubtedly occur. The problem for the regulator is that unless total oversight of every transaction, account, business and individual can be made, there will always be rogue traders or more recent examples like Enron and World.Com. As such intense oversight is not practical, the regulator can only do so much, with most of the responsibility resting with the firms and organizations themselves.For operations teams their role in protecting the firm stems from their ability to manage critical processes like reconciliation, asset position agreements and the nostro accounts efficiently and effectively. Regulators need the help and support of the businesses to have a ‘business-friendly environment’. When some abuse the trust placed in them and the regulatory environment, a ‘scandal’ or worse occurs, with the result that the majority are penalized as regulators react to criticism and apply more onerous regulations.It is often the operations teams that bear most, or at least some, of the repercussions of greater regulatory oversight of the business. It is therefore vitally important for operations teams to have a firm understanding of the regulatory issues and drivers. This book will help you gain that understanding, as well as looking at the important regulatory issues in the various global markets in which your business operates.* This book completes the popular Securities Institute Operations Management Series* Explains the role of regulation and compliance in UK, US and global financial markets* Provides a valuable perspective from the operations department viewpoint without getting caught up in the minute details of regulations

International Business: A Global Perspective

International Business: A Global Perspective

Traditionally, international business (IB) texts survey the field from a U.S. perspective, going on to compare the U.S. to the rest of the business world. This text addresses IB from a purely multinational perspective. International Business is examined from the U.S. angle, going on to address IB issues from other countries’ perspectives, what we call the «Reverse Perspective». In accomplishing the U.S. and the Reverse Perspective approaches, the authors interview business executives and politicians from a number of countries, i.e. the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Italy, Russia, etc. The interviews are incorporated at appropriate points in the text as first-hand information providing a multinational flavor to IB from each country’s representatives. Cases include: Air Arabia, Gap, Diebold Inc, Matsushita, AMSUPP, NIKE, China Eastern Airlines, Luton & Dunstable Hospital, Harley Davidson, Cassis de Dijon, Green investments in Belize, Chicago Food and Beverage Company, Advanced Software Analytics.

The Undercover Economist

The Undercover Economist

Автор:

Who makes most money from the demand for cappuccinos early in the morning at Waterloo Station? Why is it impossible to get a foot on the property ladder? How does the Mafia make money from laundries when street gangs pushing drugs don’t? Who really benefits from immigration? How can China, in just fifty years, go from the world’s worst famine to one of the greatest economic revolutions of all time, lifting a million people out of poverty a month? Looking at familiar situations in unfamiliar ways, THE UNDERCOVER ECONOMIST is a fresh explanation of the fundamental principles of the modern economy, illuminated by examples from the streets of London to the booming skyscrapers of Shanghai to the sleepy canals of Bruges. Leaving behind textbook jargon and equations, Tim Harford will reveal the games of signals and negotiations, contests of strength and battles of wit that drive not only the economy at large but the everyday choices we make.

Management Conceptual Framework applied in the Construction Industry

Management Conceptual Framework applied in the Construction Industry

Автор:

A Construction Management Conceptual Framework has been built which applies several innovative management theories, such as: Value Management, Constructability, Benchmarking, TQM, Supply Chain Management, Partnering and Alliancing, and Risk Analysis. The concepts have been brought together to construct a model for guiding a Project Manager at decision making issues. A common factor of these concepts is that they are all philosophies and as such, they require a change of structure and mentality. For this purpose, we adopted a systems thinking approach. First, it has been disclosed the Performance metrics of the industry. Secondly, we examined the methodology and applicability of each concept. We then related the functionalities between each other within the system, which in turn enabled us to create the Conceptual Framework. Empirical testing was of paramount importance in determining our findings and results. Finally, we drew up conclusions and recommendations for further research. By no means have we intended to create an inviolable prescription for Construction Management issues but rather a guide which Managers can use in conjunction with their own judgment and criteria.

Green factors of success

Green factors of success

Автор:

Providing a reliable evaluation on corporate environmental performance and assessing how it can contribute to business success have been in focus of interest for a long time. However, as Lober [1996] stresses, there is still no clear and commonly accepted definition of “greenness” or (good) environmental performance. In this book the concept of environmental performance is analyzed in connection with general corporate performance. Focus is put on links between company and environmental performance; as well as between different components of environmental performance. Based on literature review, the components of environmental performance are summarized in the author’s own model. Four identified elements of company environmental performance are differentiated: 1. environmental management, 2. concrete environmental actions and innovations, 3. environmental load and 4. changes in the state of environment as a consequence of company activities. Corporate environmental performance is evaluated in the practice as well. Empirical research is based on corporate surveys and interviews.

At Any Cost: Jack Welch, General Electric, and the Pursuit of Profit

«O’Boyle has researched and written a monumental book that should be mandatory reading for all CEOs and anyone concerned with business ethics.» —The Philadelphia Inquirer»Superb . . . a spirited study of General Electric, and of its sometimes brilliant, sometimes bungling, but always ruthless boss, Jack Welch.»                        —Chicago Sun-TimesWith convincing passion and meticulous research, Thomas F. O’Boyle explores the forces behind General Electric’s rise to the top of Wall Street, questioning if GE, with chief executive officer Jack Welch at the helm, is still «bringing good things to life.»        Welch—explosive, profit-hungry, and pragmatic—catapulted GE’s stocks to the top, up 1,155 percent from 1982 to 1997. O’Boyle argues that these astounding results have come only with the heavy price of employees’ lives, blighted under the tyranny of «Neutron Jack» Welch, so named for his bomb-like ability to eliminate staff without disturbing surrounding operations. During Welch’s reign, hard-nosed success tactics—unblinking downsizing, ruthless acquisition negotiations, and the virtual abandonment of manufacturing in favor of the more glamorous entertainment and financial services industries—coexist with scandals like price-fixing, pollution, and defense contract fraud. Sure to spark controversy, this gripping, comprehensive account begs the greater question: Is Jack Welch’s GE a model company for business in the next century, or is it time to change the way the world does business? «Smoothly written and thoroughly researched.» —USA Today»This book makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of corporate America. . . . Thomas F. O’Boyle persuades you that GE—Jack Welch’s GE—brings bad things to life. In abundance.»         —Washington Monthly
