Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

While it may seem obvious that business strategies are able to help improve organizational performance, not all research in this field has been conclusive or even positive. Different models have yielded different results. Overall, however, it can be seen that an appropriately constructed business strategy that fits the specific needs of an organization, when adopted in the right way, can improve performance. The key, however, is the integration of aspects of employee behavior.

Practical implications

The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations.

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
