2013 USU Faculty Author Spotlight

The Merrill-Cazier Library is showcasing all of the 2013 Faculty Authors and their books in the Richard Schockmel USU Collections Room on the 2nd floor of the Library. We are proud of USU's faculty authors! This week we are highlighting:

Vijay R. Kannan

Executive Director of International Programs, Professor Department of Management

Kannan, Vijay R. (Ed.). 2013. Strategic Management in the 21st Century (Vol. 2 Corporate Strategy). Santa Barbara, CA: Praeger.

This clear, insightful, and interesting work covers all aspects of strategic management, including chapters that discuss SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis, the Resource-Based View, transaction cost economics, and real options theory. Unlike other books, this three-volume work examines strategic management from different perspectives, effectively interweaving seemingly disparate subdisciplines, such as entrepreneurship and international business, with specialized foci, such as creativity, innovation, and trust.
