Books and Monographs

The faculty at the School has been actively disseminating research and knowledge to a larger audience through books and book monographs.

ISB’s faculty have published around 60 books in the scholarly, non-scholarly and textbook categories. Some of these works have featured in bestseller lists, such as “Grit, Guts, and Gumption” by Professor Rajesh Chakrabarti and the highly acclaimed textbook on statistics by Professor Galit Shmueli titled “Data Mining for Business Intelligence: Concepts, Techniques, and Applications in Microsoft Office Excel.” 

Books and MonographsGhoshal, Tanuka., Boatwright, Peter.,Malka, Malika. "Curvature from all angles: An integrative Review and Implications for Product Design", USA, Routledge, 2015, ISBN: 978-0765647603Centre for Emerging Markets SolutionsRead Description >Close >In this article, we isolate one component of product design- shape, specifically angularity or curvature (these terms will be used interchangeably throughout the article), and review literature from various domains on this aspect. In an original study, we investigate whether people have preferences for either angular or curved products for different categories for which shape is unrelated to functionality, and also measure perceived functional and hedonic benefits. We find that angular contours positively impact perceived functionality, with some exceptions, while curved contours positively impact perceived hedonic attributes of the product across almost all categories. The impact of angularity or curvature is moderated by individual differences such as need for cognition and involvement with the category. We integrate our findings within the extant literature and discuss implications for product design and provide directions for future research on design theory.

"Exploring Transgenerational Entrepreneurship: The Role of Resources and Capabilities", Cheltenham, UK, Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd, 2013Thomas Schmidheiny Centre for Family EnterpriseRead Description >Close >Transgenerational entrepreneurship, as a discipline, examines the processes, resources and capabilities that allow family enterprises to create social and economic value over time in order to succeed beyond the first generation of business owners. While tangible resources such as financial and physical capital are certainly important factors in the long-term success of a family-run business, this book focuses specifically on the role of intangible resources and capabilities, which are less easily quantifiable but equally vital. Drawing insights from in-depth longitudinal studies of twenty-six family firms in twelve countries, the contributors discuss the critical role of intangible assets such as values, virtues, tacit knowledge and learning, professionalization, internal and external social networks, and reputation. Each chapter includes both a case study that serves as a practical illustration of a particular topic as well as a discussion of the theoretical perspectives and broader implications. Featuring both contributors and case studies from across the world, this volume provides a truly global approach to the study of transgenerational entrepreneurship. Professors and students of business and management, entrepreneurship and family business studies will find this book a fascinating addition to their libraries, as will family business owners, consultants and researchers.
