Social media is redefining how companies innovate by connecting people and ideas in previously unexplored ways. Organizations now have the ability to utilize knowledge from external audiences around the globe that they could never reach before. It is changing the way organizations do business today, but not without some considerable risk. The Social Organization aims to shed a light on how social media usage is transforming the way organizations make sense of their identity and of their processes. By adopting a human capital perspective and merging the literature from communication studies and management research, the book argues that social media usage could be fruitfully exploited by organizations as a competitive advantage, if properly attuned with the official organizational culture and with a people-based approach to human resources.

In this book Tim McGettigan and Earl Smith make the unprecedented argument that racism is a remediable form of suggestion-induced sadism. Smith and McGettigan explain in plain terms how societies like the USA construct racism, and they also explain how societies can dismantle and eradicate racism. When nations declare war, they usually go through ritualized processes of 'othering' their enemies. When nations 'other' their enemies, it becomes much easier to commit the mass murder and when the wars end nations generally go through a ritualized re-normalization processes. Early in its history the USA officially othered people of color. This is best exemplified by the Three-Fifths Compromise, 'excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.' Skin pigment racism has been rampant in the USA ever since because the USA has never formally ceased hostilities against people of color. The authors posit that the USA can eradicate racism by terminating the policies that create a foundation for America's white supremacist racism.

Strategic human capital management (HCM) is not just a measurement focused approach to human resource management (HRM). It is certainly not a decision science in which people can be managed as a result of quantitative analysis and financial valuation. In fact, it is probably more of an art than a science and is a way of leading people to unlock great business performance. Strategic HCM focuses all people management and development practices on maximizing the capability and engagement of the people working for an organization to create valuable intangible capability, human capital, which enables the organisation to take full advantage of potential business opportunities. Unlike HRM which focuses on getting closer and closer to the business, strategic HCM draws its energy from people, from their individual strengths, interests and motivations, which, aligned with long-term business strategy, can increasingly provide the main basis for differentiation and competitive advantage. However, the perspective also recognizes that measurement is important, and the book outlines an approach to measurement which recognizes the importance of knowledge, complexity, best fit and intangibility. Pulling together seemingly disparate strands of thinking, the book calls for a paradigm change in which people really are seen as an organisation's most important asset, and are managed in a way that reflects this fact. The text includes case studies from leading private and public sector organizations and commentary from HR practitioners and academics.

In today's de-layered, knowledge-intensive organizations, most work of importance is heavily reliant on informal networks of employees within organizations. However, most organizations do not know how to effectively analyze this informal structure in ways that can have a positive impact on organizational performance. Networks in the Knowledge Economy is a collection of readings on the application of social network analysis to managerial concerns. Social network analysis (SNA), a set of analytic tools that can be used to map networks of relationships, allows one to conduct very powerful assessments of information sharing within a network with relatively little effort. This approach makes the invisible web of relationships between people visible, helping managers make informed decisions for improving both their own and their group's performance. Networks in the Knowledge Economy is specifically concerned with networks inside of organizations and addresses three critical areas in the study of social networks: Social Networks as Important Individual and Organizational Assets, Social Network Implications for Knowledge Creation and Sharing, and Managerial Implications of Social Networks in Organizations. Professionals and students alike will find this book especially valuable, as it provides readings on the application of social network analysis that reflect managerial concerns.
