10.  Multiple Attribute Decision Making: Methods and Applications

Decision makers are often faced with several conflicting alternatives. How do they evaluate trade-offs when there are more than three criteria? To help people make optimal decisions, scholars in the discipline of multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) continue to develop new methods for structuring preferences and determining the correct relative weights for criteria. A compilation of modern decision-making techniques, Multiple Attribute Decision Making: Methods and Applications focuses on the fuzzy set approach to multiple attribute decision making (MADM). Drawing on their experience, the authors bring together current methods and real-life applications of MADM techniques for decision analysis. They also propose a novel hybrid MADM model that combines DEMATEL and analytic network process (ANP) with VIKOR procedures.

The first part of the book focuses on the theory of each method and includes examples that can be calculated without a computer, providing a complete understanding of the procedures. Methods include the analytic hierarchy process (AHP), ANP, simple additive weighting method, ELECTRE, PROMETHEE, the gray relational model, fuzzy integral technique, rough sets, and the structural model. Integrating theory and practice, the second part of the book illustrates how methods can be used to solve real-world MADM problems. Applications covered in the book include:

·                  AHP to select planning and design services for a construction project

·                  TOPSIS and VIKOR to evaluate the best alternative-fuel vehicles for urban areas

·                  ELECTRE to solve network design problems in urban transportation planning

·                  PROMETEE to set priorities for the development of new energy systems, from solar thermal to hydrogen energy

·                  Fuzzy integrals to evaluate enterprise intranet web sites

·                  Rough sets to make decisions in insurance marketing

Helping readers understand how to apply MADM techniques to their decision making, this book is suitable for undergraduate and graduate students as well as practitioners. This is an e-book containing 335 pages

_ postgraduate students on other specialised Master’s degrees should find that it provides them with a well-grounded approach to the subject;

_ executives will also be able to relate the practical and pragmatic structure of the book to the more conceptual and theoretical issues discussed within the structure.

16.  Rational Decision Making for Managers: An Introduction

Rational Decision Making for Managers provides students with a basic understanding of quantitative and analytical techniques that managers use to make complex business decisions and helps them to recognise when they are appropriate. Sarah Keast and Mike Towler also show the characteristics of the decisions that can be informed by the use of each technique, thereby guiding the reader in their choice.

Rational Decision Making for Managers features:

·                  separate chapters on robustness analysis and game theory

·                  a strong contextual discussion and clear structure

·                  a concise mathematical appendix

The book is essential reading for students studying business decision making, quantitative methods and business research methods.

The primary aim of this text is to provide managers and students with an introduction to some of the most common decision-making techniques. Following a discussion of the decision context, the approach followed is to divide the techniques into sections according to the types of decision for which they are most appropriate. This text begins, in Chapters I to 3, by introducing the nature and context of decisions. In particular, the consideration of futures is developed, while both quantitative and qualitative techniques for describing continuous or discrete models of the
future are expounded. These first three chapters aim to familiarise readers with the potential nature of the future, whether it is certain, uncertain, or strictly uncertain. The second section of the text, Chapters 4 to 7, and the third section, Chapters 8 to 10, are divided to stress that, while some decisions are singular in nature in that they will be taken once or will be repeated after a finite period of time, some decisions are sequential in nature, opening up future decision-making opportunities in which managers may add value. This is a simple yet important conceptual step. The role of the nature of the future introduced in the first section is seen throughout the later chapters. The future may he certain, as highlighted in Chapter 6 with examples from linear programming, it may be uncertain owing to uncontrollable events and considered discrete (e.g. Chapter S considers payoff matrices and Chapter 9 considers decision trees), it may be uncertain and considered continuous (exemplified in Chapter 4 with inventory management decisions), or it may be uncertain owing to the actions of a competitor (e.g. Chapters 7 and 10 consider game theory).

12.  Essentials of Strategic Management, 2nd Edition

The book presents a broad overview of the nature and functions of strategic management in nine chapters.

Part 1, Introduction to Strategic Management, explains what strategic management is and provides a framework for understanding what strategic managers do. Chapter 1 discusses the relationship between strategic management and strategic leadership and shows how competitive advantage results in superior performance. It also describes the plan of this book and discusses the principal functions of strategic managers. Chapter 2 discusses the ways in which companies affect their stakeholders and why it is necessary to create corporate governance mechanisms that ensure that strategic managers work to further the interests of stakeholders and behave ethically.

In Part 2, The Nature of Competitive Advantage, we discuss the factors and forces both external and internal to an organization that determine its choice of strategies for creating a competitive advantage and achieving above-average profitability. Chapter 3 looks at opportunities, threats, and competition in the external environment. Chapter 4 examines how a company can build competitive advantage by achieving superior efficiency, quality, innovation, and responsiveness to customers. It also discusses how managers can craft functional-level strategies that will allow an organization to achieve these goals.

In Part 3, Building and Sustaining Long-Run Competitive Advantage, we provide a streamlined discussion of the different levels of strategy that must be developed to build and sustain a long-term competitive advantage. Chapter 5 considers how to use business-level strategies to optimize competitive positioning and outperform industry rivals. Chapter 6 discusses how to strengthen competitive advantage by expanding globally into new national markets. Chapter 7 then examines the various corporate-level strategies, such as vertical integration, diversification, and outsourcing, that are used to protect and strengthen competitive advantage and sustain long run profitability.
Finally, in Part 4, Strategy Implementation, we examine the many operational issues involved in putting all these strategies into action simultaneously. Chapter 8 first discusses the importance of strategic change in today’s fast-moving global environment and the issues and problems involved in managing the change process effectively. Then it outlines how to build and develop a company’s business through the use of internal new venturing, acquisitions, and strategic alliances and considers the pros and cons of these different methods. Chapter 9 discusses how to implement strategy through the design of organization structure and the operational issues involved in selecting structures to match the needs of particular strategies. It also looks at the organizational control systems necessary to fit strategy to structure and the role of organizational culture in developing competitive advantage.

As you can see by perusing the table of contents, the approach we take in Essentials of Strategic Management parallels that of our other book, Strategic Management: An Integrated Approach. Our goal is to offer a contemporary, integrated account of strategic management, but one that is streamlined and focused only on the essentials of this complex and fascinating subject.

14.  Wealth Management: Private Banking, Investment Decisions, and Structured Financial products

This book has two themes: Private Banking and investment decisions regarding Structural Financial Products. Dr. Dimitris Chorafas examines in a rigorous way whether structured financial products are advisable investments for retail and institutional investors and, if yes, which risks they entail. As our society becomes increasingly affluent, and state-supported pension schemes find it difficult to survive, a growing number of high net-worth individuals, and families, have become retail investors - looking for ways and means to optimize wealth management, and Private Banking deals with these sorts of clients. Private banking also deals with clients that are institutional investors, such as pension funds, mutual funds, and insurance companies, as well as not-for-profits, foundations and companies explicitly set up for wealth management. Both institutional and retail investors are being offered by the banks they work with structured products. Typically, these are securities that provide them with a redemption amount, with may be either with full or partial capital protection, and some type of return. The book examines structured financial products, their polyvalent nature, and the results which could be expected from them. Return on structural instruments, which are essentially derivatives, is paid in function of a specific investment strategy on selected underlying asset(s). This essentially means on the performance of the underlyings, obtained by asset managers, which may be banks or hedge funds, through purchase or sale of embedded options. But there are risks. Both risk and return from structured products are related to three main issues: the volatility of future value of an underlying, the uncertainty of future events, and the exposure of the product. Every type of investment is subject to market forces, and the more leveraged a portfolio is, the greater will probably be both the assumed risk and the expected reward. The fact that structured financial products appeal, or at least are being marketed, to both retail investors and institutional investors makes the dual approach deliberately chosen in this book most advisable. This book addresses all these issues in a practical manner with numerous case studies and real-world examples drawn from the author’s intensive research. *Because it is based on intensive research, the book is rich in practical examples and case studies
*Addresses the growing trend towards the use of structured financial instruments in private banking
*Thorough treatment of structured financial products that keeps maths to a minimum
