Competitive Advantage Through People: Unleashing the Power of the Work Force

Availability: Ready to download

"Competitive Advantage Through People" explores why - despite long-standing evidence that a committed work force is essential for success - firms continue to attach little importance to their workers. The answer, argues Pfeffer, resides in a complex web of factors based on perception, history, legislation, and practice that continues to dominate management thought and acti "Competitive Advantage Through People" explores why - despite long-standing evidence that a committed work force is essential for success - firms continue to attach little importance to their workers. The answer, argues Pfeffer, resides in a complex web of factors based on perception, history, legislation, and practice that continues to dominate management thought and action. Yet, some organizations have been able to overcome these obstacles. In fact, the five common stocks with the highest returns between 1972 and 1992 - Southwest Airlines, Wal-Mart, Tyson Foods, Circuit City, and Plenum Publishing - were in industries that shared virtually none of the characteristics traditionally associated with strategic success. What each of these firms did share is the ability to produce sustainable competitive advantage through its way of managing people. Pfeffer documents how they - and others - resisted traditional management pitfalls, and offers frameworks for implementing these changes in any industry.

Apoyo el concepto inicial que el libro quiere transmitir bajo la premicia que la fuerza laboral de las personas tiene una importancia muy poco valorada por la industria y aún más en la epoca de las transiciones industriales y ahora comparandolo con con el año 2021 con todo lo que se vive y se dislumbra cada vez más una precalización de los trabajos y profesiones del futuro tienen una gran incertidumbre por delante. Consideranto esto como de antecedente, creo que el libro no es tán cautivante como otros libros que leí del autor, caso te interese puedes sacarle provecho, sin embargo, una lectura más actual sin duda podría ser una mejor opción, aún así otros libros del mismo autor son facinantes sobre temas similares expuestos en este libro.
