An Alternative Way of Managing Health & Safety By Jose D. Pérezgonzález
eBook (PDF): $26.68
(1 Ratings)
“An Alternative Way of Managing Health & Safety” offers the theoretical frame of a generic systems model for the management of health, safety and related topics. It represents a step... More > forward from previous theoretical and empirical work (e.g. Pérezgonzález, 2005a, b), and has the following main features: it proposes a theoretical formulation of a generic Health and Safety Management System for most industrial and service sectors, it offers clear graphic lines of influence of the different components in the Health and Safety Management System on organisational health and safety, it reviews and updates Pérezgonzález’s theoretical and graphical model, and, finally, it reviews and edits the text layout so that it now describes an integrated Health and Safety Management System instead of a research objective.< Less

Book Review: The Southwest Airlines Way By Jose D. Pérezgonzález
eBook (PDF): $1.00
[This paper can also be found as part of the Journal of Knowledge Advancement & Integration at]. Gittell's book synthesises an eight-year research work done by the author... More > on four American airlines, although the focus is on Southwest Airlines as it showed distinctive practices which form the antecedent variables of a model of relational coordination. “The Southwest Airlines Way” is more than a case study on Southwest Airlines. It is also an important reference for future research on the topic of relational coordination beyond the airline’s sector, as the book already provides the tools for such future research (i.e. model, methodology and results). This future research, if respecting the methodology and procedures followed by Gittell, will inform further about the validity of the model and its importance for a wider range of organisations.< Less
