There still appears to be ongoing debate regarding the core pathology for gaining managerial expertise in professional roles relative to having suitable leadership skills and managerial knowledge beyond the direct daily work involved in organizations.

This book is ideally designed for leadership and management professionals, academicians, students, and researchers in the fields of knowledge management, administrative sciences and management, leadership development, education, and organization development sub-branches or specialty practices.

Leaders nowadays need to know, learn, and apply the concept of qalb leadership where it has been taught by the Prophet Muhammad as well as explained by Islamic scholars. The comparison with other mindful leadership concepts is required to provide solutions and options in leadership for better outcomes and spiritual awareness. It is found that leadership literature, in general, is unable to generate an understanding of a leadership concept that is both intellectually compelling and emotionally satisfying.

With the discussion of four cardinal virtues of Al-Ghazali, leaders can solve many problems that emerge in their organizations. This book is ideal for managers, executives, theologians, professionals, researchers, academicians, and students who are interested in how Islamic spirituality plays a role in leadership.

During global crises, apart from humanitarian concerns, at the economic level, supply chains around the world can be impacted. These crises can cause huge uncertainties in both the supply and demand parts of supply chains. On one side, the demand for some products and services can be reduced. On the other side, manufacturers around the world are facing shortages of supplies of raw materials and parts because of interruptions in production, disruptions to transportation, and labor shortages. In this context, organizations start to re-examine their production and service systems based on digitization of operations to not only mitigate the risk but also to build a resilient supply chain while continuing to reduce costs and maximize profits. The question that can be asked is how the decentralized supply chains can integrate new technologies to compete in a risky environment in global crises. Digitalization of Decentralized Supply Chains During Global Crises provides new approaches of digitalization of decentralized supply chains and industries to help researchers, educators, consultants, and practitioners deal with global crises and improve the global performance of supply chains. Important topics covered include blockchain, internet of things, 3D technologies, and Industry 4.0 technologies within the context of digital supply chains. This book is important for supply chain managers, manufacturers, producers, logistics personnel, economists, practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students.
In recent years, state legislatures in the United States have been transformed based on the social identities of their membership. At its most fundamental level, the debate over LGBTQ rights always has been a debate over the right of LGBTQ people to exist. While the role faith plays in legislative decision making is rooted within government functions, careful examination and change must be conducted to protect the humanity of those at risk through these influences. Faith-Based Influences on Legislative Decision Making: Emerging Research and Opportunities explores the balance between religious freedoms of legislators and the human rights of members of the LGBTQ community. Examining the politics and institutional forces brought to bear on LGBTQ claims for visibility, recognition, and dignity, this book is organized into three sections, each of which uses a distinct institutional lens—historical, legal, and religious. The author attempts to demonstrate that while the clash of cultures between these groups is real, it is not simple. The faith worldviews of each share common structural features but often reach extremely different conclusions. Covering topics such as marriage equality, religious liberty, and court cases, this book is an essential resource for students and educators in political science, policymakers, legislators, historians, sociologists, researchers, universities, administrations, community leaders, and academicians.
