  • Corporate partnering transactions are very often viewed as limited to «corporate venture capital», which can be defined as a corporate taking equity stakes in emerging or growth companies to gain insight in novel technologies and markets, to influence the decisions of such companies and potentially purchase them.

    This book takes a different approach and analyses corporate partnering transactions from a much broader perspective, covering several types of collaboration models for growth between emerging companies and corporates.

    In this book corporate partnering transactions are defined as «Growth through Collaboration» to stress the different manners in which emerging and growth companies can use collaboration models to grow their business to the next level. This book intends to provide guidance and best practices to entrepreneurs, innovation experts and transaction professionals for the design and structuring of corporate partnering transactions.

    Is there a human resource management specific to Africa? The human resource manager's approach developed in this book shows that, if principles and techniques can be practiced in every socio-cultural environment, they need to duly take the prevailing local situation into consideration for the sake of effectiveness.
    It is important for the practitioner to be aware of the specificities of the environment to make a judicious use of expertise, with due respect for the human being and labour ethic in a bid to achieve the company's performance related-objectives. He is presently faced with a few major stakes among which personal improvement in a community-based society and the management of diversity in a world characterized by influential clannish networks.
    The purpose of this book is not to study the contribution of human resource management in an African environment, but rather to put forwards a possible use of the tools of a function currently evolving in our context. Indeed, the requirements of competitiveness and globalization impose on companies and their leaders to strengthen their management by valorising their human resources. The integration of the human and socio- cultural factors is one of the prerequisites of a successful company and its leaders.

  • Pierre Bellon, the founder of Sodexo, is the embodiment of one of France's finest entrepreneurial successes. At 89 years of age, he has agreed for the first time to relate the story of his battles and his convictions. His words are worth heeding because they are original, revolutionary, and the antithesis of those we usually hear from major business leaders with companies in the CAC 40.
    This book is addressed to all those who think, like him, that history is never written in advance. And that the best way of advancing, of progressing, is through enterprise. Pierre Bellon shares with us his vision of the company, speaks about his raison d'être, his values and his principles of management. He excoriates technocracy. He denounces the deviancies and excesses of capitalism. He makes the case for the intra-entrepreneur. «Before you can grow, you have to begin small. That's my philosophy in a nutshell. It's a long road to success».

  • À l'heure où l'on s'interroge en France sur ce qu'est l'entreprise, comme en témoignent récemment le rapport Notat-Sénard et les débats sur la loi Pacte, il est indispensable de comprendre la naissance et la vie des organisations et, à ce titre, des entreprises. Ce livre, ancré dans la sociologie des organisations, en exploite un aspect fondamental, à savoir que l'action collective naît d'un projet collectif, que ce projet s'exprime par des règles et dans les régulations constitutives de l'acteur collectif lui-même. Un agir projectif est en jeu aussi bien à l'échelle individuelle que collective, et celui-ci doit être pleinement intégré dans l'effort de théorisation de l'action.
