In Central and Eastern Europe, the 'Old Europe' of cobblestones co-exists with mobile phones, horse carts fight for road space with cars, and farmers' markets compete with mega-stores.
Miller and Henthorne give U.S. investors and entrepreneurs the insights they need to capitalize upon the rapidly expanding, but still open, Cuban tourism industry-the island's major industry. This authoritative examination of the market for Cuban tourism provides comprehensive information on Cuban contacts and data sources that are accessible to foreigners; insights into the competition and possible competitive strategies, plus the general background on Cuba and its economy that investors must have for an understanding of Cuba's potential. With its lists of references and contacts, Miller and Henthorne's study will be invaluable to international tourism executives, particularly specialists in strategic planning and the development of strategic business alliances as well as international marketers and business development officers. Miller and Henthorne have written their book for the day when relations and travel ties are reestablished between Cuba and the United States-a day that in their opinion will soon come. From their personal visits and interviews with Cuban officials in banking, finance, investment, politics, and the tourist industry itself, Miller and Henthorne have compiled material that is unavailable from any other single source. Here is detailed, first hand, timely information on Cuba's tourism resources, opportunities, infrastructure, competitors and competition, peculiarities, and historical and regional background for the benefit of investors in the United States and worldwide.
Family firms play and are likely to continue to play a vital role in the global economy and many family owned firms are far from small. One of the events that can and does disrupt the smooth evolution of such businesses is generation transition and succession. In numerous high profile cases such as the Ford and DuPont families, succession problems have deeply and dramatically affected both the businesses and families involved. In this very focused research-based study the authors examine the increasing involvement of women in leadership roles in family firms and how daughters are now so often rising through the ranks to take over successful family businesses when their fathers are reaching the end of their careers as active entrepreneurs. With case studies from almost every continent, Father-Daughter Succession in Family Business looks at the cultural and other changes that have led to daughters gaining influence in more and more family businesses and the tensions this produces between old notions of how men and women should behave and the new style of leadership that often comes about when a woman takes the helm. The case studies included here comprise revealing narrative accounts from the daughters who succeeded their entrepreneur fathers in a wide variety of challenging situations, many of which involve cultural contexts beyond the North American and European ones in which research has already established that women can and do perform as well as or better than men in many leadership situations. Increasingly, entrepreneurs contemplating retirement look to consultants and others for help with managing succession. It is also increasingly recognized that in business education the socio-cultural aspects of entrepreneurialism have to be addressed. This book will help consultants, business educators, and researchers, as well as those who are themselves involved in significant family managed enterprises to better understand why it can no longer be assumed in any part of the World that the first born son will necessarily take over the reins of the family business.
