In today’s world, textile manufacturers need to keep upgrading their machineries to stay competitive. In fact, it is the latest machinery that drives the growth of the textile and garment industry by providing efficiency and optimisation in production. To meet customers’ demands and needs, global leaders in textile machineries strive hard to come up with innovative and more efficient textile machines. The newer machines are intelligently designed to give maximum quality and optimum economic efficiency with outstanding features. The trends in shipments of machineries give an indication of which machineries are in demand. Shipments of flat-knitting machines rose by 52 per cent, while deliveries of shuttle-less looms increased by 14 per cent year-on-year in 2015, according to the 38th annual International Textile Machinery Shipment Statistics (ITMSS) released by the International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF). On the other hand, shipments in some textile machinery segments experienced declines in 2015. Deliveries of new short-staple spindles fell by nearly 8 per cent from 2014 to 2015. Shipped long-staple spindles and open-end rotors decreased by 61 per cent and 6 per cent, respectively. The number of shipped draw texturing spindles fell by 26 per cent and shipments for new circular knitting machines by 6 per cent year-on-year. However, 2015 was a very good year for the segment of electronic flat knitting machines as global shipments grew by 52 per cent to 70,100 machines, the highest level since 2011. Not surprisingly, Asia received the highest share of shipments (93 per cent). China remained the world’s largest investor for flat knitting machines in 2015. Thereby, Chinese investments increased from 19,000 units to 35,500 units. But, due to rising labour and production costs, textile and garment manufacturing is shifting, to a certain extent, from China. As a result, new plants are being set up in other countries, especially in Asia and Africa. This is where the new machineries would be in demand. ‘Innovations in Machinery — The CEO Handbook’ tries to explain the advantages of various machines that will help technocrats in choosing the right machine. This volume is a collection of top most companies that inform readers about the latest innovations in textile machinery. It presents some of the leading machinery entrepreneurs from different textile verticals who have contributed to the textile industry with their innovations. New technologies and techniques in textile production are sure to draw the attention of top textile technocrats. Going beyond, this volume attempts to give a glimpse of the future of textile machinery and production. This handbook will reach the top technocrats in the textile and apparel organisations throughout the world. It will serve as an extensive source of information regarding upcoming technologies and innovations in the global textile machinery industry.

The financial crisis that began in 2008 and its lingering aftermath have caused many intellectuals and politicians to question the virtues of capitalist systems. The 19 original essays in this Handbook, written by leading scholars from Asia, North America, and Europe, analyze both the strengths and weaknesses of capitalist systems. The volume opens with essays on the historical and legal origins of capitalism. These are followed by chapters describing the nature, institutions, and advantages of capitalism: entrepreneurship, innovation, property rights, contracts, capital markets, and the modern corporation. The next set of chapters discusses the problems that can arise in capitalist systems including monopoly, principal agent problems, financial bubbles, excessive managerial compensation, and empire building through wealth-destroying mergers. Two subsequent essays examine in detail the properties of the "Asian model" of capitalism as exemplified by Japan and South Korea, and capitalist systems where ownership and control are largely separated as in the United States and United Kingdom. The handbook concludes with an essay on capitalism in the 21st century by Nobel Prize winner Edmund Phelps.

For thirty-three years and through three editions, Bass & Stogdill's Handbook of Leadership has been the indispensable bible for every serious student of leadership. Since the third edition came out in 1990, the field of leadership has expanded by an order of magnitude. This completely revised and updated fourth edition reflects the growth and changes in the study of leadership over the past seventeen years, with new chapters on transformational leadership, ethics, presidential leadership, and executive leadership. Throughout the Handbook, the contributions from cognitive social psychology and the social, political, communications, and administrative sciences have been expanded. As in the third edition, Bernard Bass begins with a consideration of the definitions and concepts used, and a brief review of some of the betterknown theories. Professor Bass then focuses on the personal traits, tendencies, attributes, and values of leaders and the knowledge, intellectual competence, and technical skills required for leadership. Next he looks at leaders' socioemotional talents and interpersonal competencies, and the differences in these characteristics in leaders who are imbued with ideologies, especially authoritarianism, Machiavellianism, and self-aggrandizement. A fuller examination of the values, needs, and satisfactions of leaders follows, and singled out for special attention are competitiveness and the preferences for taking risks. In his chapters on personal characteristics, Bass examines the esteem that others generally accord to leaders as a consequence of the leaders' personalities. The many theoretical and research developments about charisma over the past thirty years are crucial and are explored here in depth. Bass has continued to develop his theory of transformational leadership -- the paradigm of the last twenty years -- and he details how it makes possible the inclusion of a much wider range of phenomena than when theory and modeling are limited to reinforcement strategies. He also details the new incarnations of transformational leadership since the last edition. Bass has greatly expanded his consideration of women and racial minorities, both of whom are increasingly taking on leadership roles. A glossary is included to assist specialists in a particular academic discipline who may be unfamiliar with terms used in other fields. Business professors and students, executives in every industry, and politicians at all levels have relied for years on the time-honored guidance and insight afforded by the Handbook.

The CEO's Strategy Handbook

There are many books on strategy, but very few focus on helping CEOs fulfill their role in leading strategy in their organization. The CEO's Strategy Handbook will give CEOs and senior executives provocative insights and pragmatic advice to setting strategy, leading the strategy process, and turning winning strategies into great results. The term strategy has, with the help of consultants and academics, developed a mystique that makes it sound difficult, complicated and only for people with an IQ greater than 150. Stuart Cross smashes through this misconception, showing CEOs that this critical element in improving the performance of their business is a straightforward--and even enjoyable--process that they can feel confident in mastering. The fundamentals to great strategy and effective implementation remain the same. Setting a clear direction, rigorously identifying and pursuing opportunities where the organization has competitive advantages, combined with an ability to make trade-offs, focus on priorities, communicate the bigger picture and drive accountabilities are the ways in which the CEO can make a strategy come to life and deliver dramatic and sustainable success. This book shows CEOs how they can make this happen in their own organization. It includes case studies, self-tests, interviews with leading CEOs, charts, frameworks and action plans to bring the ideas alive for the readers.
