Routledge Handbook of Risk Studies

Routledge Handbook of Risk Studies

A. BURGESS, A. ALEMANNO, J. ZINN

Routledge, London

2016



It is over 40 years since we began to reflect upon risk in a more social than technological and economic fashion, firstly making sense of the gap between expert and public assessment of risks, such as to our health and environment. With fixed certainties of the past eroded and the technological leaps of ‘big data’, ours is truly an age of risk, uncertainty and probability - from Google’s logarithms to the daily management of personal lifestyle risks. Academic reflection and research has kept pace with these dizzying developments but remains an intellectually fragmented field, shaped by professional imperatives and disciplinary boundaries, from risk analysis to regulation and social research. This is the first attempt to draw together and define risk studies, through a definitive collection written by the leading scholars in the field. It will be an indispensable resource for the many scholars, students and professionals engaging with risk but lacking a resource to draw it all together

Strategic Sourcing Management

Strategic Sourcing Management

Structural and Operational Decision-making

O. BRUEL

Kogan Page Ltd

2016



Strategic Sourcing Management examines procurement and supply management in detail, covering the three dimensions of competitiveness, effectiveness and efficiency. Written by Olivier Bruel, Professor Emeritus HEC Paris, and a team of contributing experts from academia, consulting and industry, the book is organised into four parts: strategic decisions; operational management of procurement and related supply chain; management of human resources and dedicated information systems; management of performance and change.This book has been written with a comprehensive global and coherent approach but the chapters are self-standing, enabling the reader to dip into different sections according to need. Strategic Sourcing Management considers both tactical and strategic perspectives that link with a corporate strategy and it includes dedicated chapters on how to set up a Strategic Sourcing function. The text is enriched with clear graphics and solid examples of best practice.Strategic Sourcing Management is a robust text based on both research and experience, so an essential reference for practitioners and academics working in or studying procurement and supply management. It is suitable for anyone involved in procurement and supply management at a senior level but also for general management enabling them to understand the mechanisms of value creation through Strategic Sourcing.

Analogies and Theories: Formal Models of Reasoning

Analogies and Theories: Formal Models of Reasoning

I. GILBOA, L. SAMUELSON, D. SCHMEIDLER

Oxford University Press, Roumanie

2015



The book describes formal models of reasoning that are aimed at capturing the way that economic agents, and decision makers in general think about their environment and make predictions based on their past experience. The focus is on analogies (case-based reasoning) and general theories (rule-based reasoning), and on the interaction between them, as well as between them and Bayesian reasoning. A unified approach allows one to study the dynamics of inductive reasoning in terms of the mode of reasoning that is used to generate predictions

Or, comme le martèle Bernard Ramanantsoa : « Au XXIe siècle, le business fait l’histoire. » Il faut donc défendre ceux qui chaque jour agissent pour maintenir la France au cœur du monde des affaires et des affaires du monde.Depuis vingt ans à la tête d’HEC, Bernard Ramanantsoa se bat pour les entreprises et les entrepreneurs. Car HEC n’est pas une simple business school. C’est un laboratoire où se préparent les dirigeants de demain et où des chercheurs d’excellence s’appliquent à améliorer les performances économiques.

Odissea nei diritti LGBTI in Italia

M. M. WINKLER, G. STRAZIO

Mimesis Edizioni, Italie

2015



Il libro affronta in tutti i suoi aspetti il tema del riconoscimento giuridico dei diritti delle persone LGBTI in Italia. Procedendo sotto forma di viaggio ideale nelle pieghe dell’ordinamento giuridico e prestando grande attenzione al dibattito politico nostrano attraverso l’analisi della giurisprudenza più recente, il volume si sviluppa in sette capitoli e un breve epilogo. Il punto di partenza è rappresentato dalla campagna di Affermazione civile, volta a ottenere il riconoscimento del diritto costituzionale di gay e lesbiche di contrarre matrimonio. Successivamente, gli autori trattano le fonti europee, con un esame delle ultime sentenze della Corte europea dei diritti umani in tema di non discriminazione per orientamento sessuale e di diritto al matrimonio. Sono trattati nello specifico il tema del riconoscimento e trascrizione dei matrimoni tra persone dello stesso sesso celebrati all’estero, delle discriminazioni sul lavoro, delle famiglie omogenitoriali e infine della lotta all’omofobia
