It is commonplace for today’s transnational enterprises to undertake political risk analysis when choosing foreign markets and creating entry strategies. Despite this, non-market elements of corporate strategy are less well researched than the traditional market-based perspectives.
Providing comprehensive and leading edge overviews of current scholarship, this Companion surveys the current state of the field and provides a basis for improving our understanding of the non-market environment, encouraging new insights to improve strategies for enhancing a firm’s performance and legitimacy.
With a foreword by David Baron, the international team of contributors includes Jean-Philippe Bonardi, Bennet Zelner, and Jonathan Doh, who combine to create a book that is essential reading for students and researchers in business, management, and politics, including those interested in business regulation, environmental policy, political risk and corporate social responsibility.

Strategic management has traditionally concerned itself with delivering objectives based on an assessment of resources and the market environment. However, there are many actors considered ‘outside’ the firm that inevitably shape the dynamics within the market. Nonmarket strategies entail social, political, and legal arrangements that reinforce or enable market strategies, providing a comprehensive approach to improving performance and gaining a competitive advantage.
This book introduces nonmarket strategic management within these contexts. Divided into two parts, the first part offers theories and managerial support for coping with the complex business realities surrounded by social, political and legal spheres; the second part presents examples of the challenges firms in the nonmarket environment. These examples show how firms can strategically manage and work with social, political and regulatory stakeholders to achieve their goals.
Written by two leading scholars in the area, this book is essential reading for business students, managers and leaders.

La comunicación es, en nuestra sociedad, una realidad omnipresente, compleja, indispensable y en constante evolución. Las organizaciones deben afrontarla de manera profesional. Con independencia de su naturaleza y tamaño, este cometido incluye unos procedimientos y características aplicables a cada una de ellas.
La gestión de su comunicación parte de la comprensión correcta del término corporativo de la que arranca el texto, y desemboca en cuestiones de índole práctico: la comunicación de crisis o interna y el liderazgo; el plan y el departamento de comunicación; la relación con los periodistas y la interacción con las acciones de marketing.

New Tools for Succeeding Globally. Why do so many global strategies fail–despite companies’ powerful brands and other border-crossing advantages? Because a one-size-fits-all strategy no longer stands a chance. When firms believe in the illusions of a «flat» world and the death of distance, they charge across borders as if the globe were one seamless marketplace. But cross-border differences are larger than we assume. Most economic activity–including trade, real and financial investment, tourism, and communication–happens locally, not internationally. In this «semiglobalized» approach, companies can cross borders more profitably by basing their strategies on the geopolitical differences that matter; they must identify the barriers their strategies will have to overcome, and they must build bridges to cross those barriers. Based on rigorous research, Pankaj Ghemawat shows how to create successful strategies and provides practical management tools so you can: Assess the cultural, administrative, geographic, and economic differences between regions at the industry level–and decide which ones require attention; Track the implications of the specific border-crossing actions that will impact your company’s ability to create value the most; Generate superior performance through strategies that are optimized for the three A’s: adaptation (adjusting to differences), aggregation (overcoming differences), and arbitrage (exploiting differences). Using in-depth examples, Ghemawat reveals how companies such as Cemex, Toyota, Procter & Gamble, Tata Consultancy Services, IBM, and GE Healthcare are adroitly managing cross-border differences. He also shares examples of other well-known companies that have failed at this challenge. Crucial for any business competing across borders, «Redefining Global Strategy» will help you make the most of our semiglobalized world.
