With this aim, firstly, there is a delimitation and quantification of this phenomenon, with particular attention being paid to the proliferation of distance work and to work on digital platforms that has taken place in recent years.

This case aims to describe how Saica´s decision to invest in a technology to recover value from expired packaged organic products (EPOP) hinges upon the agenda and objectives of stakeholders from supply markets, demand markets and the government.

Relational Leadership: Theory, Practice and Development

Nicholas Clarke -

This book introduces readers to the most up-to-date research in this area and the differing theoretical perspectives that can help us better understand leadership as a relational phenomenon.

Specific forms of relational leadership such as shared leadership, responsible leadership, global team leadership and complexity leadership are addressed in subsequent chapters. The book is the first to examine recent ideas about how these new forms of relational leadership are put into practice as well as techniques, tools and strategies available to organisations to help do so.

The Cambridge Handbook of the Global Work-family Interface

Kristen M. Shockley, Winny Shen, Ryan C. Johnson -

Chaoter by Aline Masuda | Schwarz values: implications for global work family research

In this chapter we will encourage work-family scholars to examine cultural value orientations when studying the work family interface. First we describe Schwartz´s (2006) theory of cultural value orientations and how it differs from other theories of culture (e.g. Hofstede theory, and Inglenhart). Second, we describe a culturally sensitive theoretical framework based on previous theory of work-family conflict and work family enrichment (Powell et al. 2009). In this model, we propose how cultural value orientations may influence work family enrichment and conflict, two important constructs that captures both the positive and negative side of the work family interface.
Finally, we propose a research agenda for future research examining the role of cultural value orientations on the work family interface.
