Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Neun von zehn Top-Managern sind der Ansicht, dass das Wissen des Unternehmens in Zukunft einer der wettbewerbsentscheidenden Faktoren sein wird. Der Stellenwert des Produktionsfaktors Wissen nimmt demnach verglichen mit den traditionellen Produktionsfaktoren Boden, Kapital und Arbeit eine immer größere und wichtigere Stellung ein. Mit dieser Diplomarbeit wurden zwei Aufgaben bearbeitet: A) Eine Vorgehensweise für eine wissensbasierte Unternehmensanalyse zu erarbeiten, sie durchzuführen und anhand der erzielten Resultate ein Umsetzungskonzept, abgestimmt auf ein KMU, zu entwickeln. B) Die Bedürfnisse für ein mögliches Ausbildungsmodul am auftraggebenden Institut abzuklären und dazu ein Unterrichtskonzept zu erarbeiten. Zu A): In der untersuchten Firma stieß das vorgelegte Konzept auf reges Interesse. Die Umsetzung wurde daraufhin von der Geschäftsleitung initiert. Zu B): Mittels einer schriftlichen Befragung wurde das Bedürfnis für ein Unterrichtsmodul Wissensmanagement bei aktuell und ehemalig Studierenden des Instituts abgeklärt. Die Resultate der Umfrage (mit einem Rücklauf von über 70%) sagen aus, dass bezüglich diesen Lerninhalten großes Interesse vorhanden ist. Mittlerweile ist ein entsprechendes Wissensmanagement-Unterrichtsmodul aufgrund des erarbeiteten Konzeptes am Institut Tatsache. Auszug aus der Bewertung der Diplomarbeit: - Arbeit besticht durch deren Breite. - Praxisorientierung in hohem Masse gegeben. - Problemfelder werden methodisch vielfältig untersucht, Lösungsvorschläge sind realistisch. Im Rahmen der Arbeit wurde der integrierte Ansatz von Gilbert Probst und Kai Romhardt verfolgt. Die Kernprozesse des Wissensmanagement sind in acht einzelne Wissensbausteine gegliedert. Diese Bausteine umschreiben weitgehend die möglichen Interventionsfelder für Wissensmanagementmassnahmen in einem Unternehmen. Das Konzept ist bezüglich bestehender Ansätze und Interventionsprojekte offen. Ein Wissensmanagementprojekt auf der Basis des vorliegenden Konzeptes kann ohne Mühe in bestehende Projekte integriert werden, auch wenn diese auf anderen Managementkonzepten oder Interventionsansätzen beruhen. Als Kernaussage halten wir fest, dass es nicht entscheidend ist, ob Wissensmanagement anderen Unternehmensbereichen zugeordnet oder als eigenständige Disziplin betrachtet wird: Die Hauptsache ist, Wissensmanagement bewusst zu praktizieren. Wissen muss gepflegt werden, denn Wissen ist Wert [...]

Today’s global business environments drive companies to be more technology dependent, and to remain competitive, firms need to introduce or adopt a new technology to business. In order to achieve a successful integration with maximum return on investment, companies need a systematic approach that accommodates a comprehensive course of action of technology integration. Technology Integration to Business – Practical Methods and Case Studies suggests a business-driven holistic approach of technology integration that consists of several steps. First, companies should examine the current state, issues, benefits, and obstacles of technology integration in conjunction with their competitive business strategy and operational capability. Second, firms should investigate new, emerging business technologies as to how those technologies can contribute to improve the business. Third, with the technology integration needs identified, companies should complete preparatory tasks before actual implementation, such as, business process analysis, technology assessment, technology provider investigation, business case development, and cost-benefit analysis. Fourth, because the nature of technology integration project involves many stakeholders in global locations, firms should use effective project management knowledge from project initiation, through planning, execution, control, to close. Students will learn real-world technology integration processes in industry settings and become more prepared for industrial careers. Practitioners will find thorough procedures and methods that are useful in practice to improve business performance. Realistic examples for manufacturing, logistics, and supply chain management application domains give the reader practical implications for the methods presented.

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Vorstände von Aktiengesellschaften agieren als Treuhänder fremden Vermögens. Um Anleger und Gläubiger zu schützen haben sie bei ihrem Handeln und der Organisation des Unternehmens bestimmte gesetzliche Vorschriften zu beachten. Jedoch beschäftigten sich bis Mitte der neunziger Jahre weder das Schrifttum noch die Rechtsprechung wesentlich mit der Frage der persönlichen Haftung der Vorstandsmitglieder für Fehlentscheidungen oder Pflichtverletzungen. Eine Pflichtverletzung, die zu einem Schaden bei der Gesellschaft führte, wurde in der Regel lediglich personalpolitisch sanktioniert. Die betroffenen Unternehmen sahen dabei zumindest dann von der Geltendmachung weiterer Ansprüche wie Schadensersatz oder der Strafanzeige ab, sofern der Verantwortliche keine unakzeptablen Abfindungsforderungen stellte. Verständlicherweise stehen vor allem die Vorstandsmitglieder selbst weitergehenden Forderungen kritisch gegenüber und verweisen auf eine Einschränkung der unternehmerischen Freiheit. Allerdings lassen sich auch im juristischen Schrifttum Stimmen finden, die personalpolitische Konsequenzen als „im Großen und Ganzen“ ausreichend ansahen. Beginnend in der zweiten Hälfte der neunziger Jahre setzte dann allerdings eine schnell an Fahrt gewinnende Bewegung ein. Die zahlreichen Bilanzierungsskandale und Unternehmenszusammenbrüche in jüngerer Zeit haben etlichen Anlegern große Verluste beschert und insgesamt das Vertrauen in die weltweiten Kapitalmärkte empfindlich erschüttert. Hinzu kam, dass international vergleichbare Standards für die Verantwortung der Unternehmensleitung fehlten, obwohl die Unternehmen durch die Globalisierung der Märkte zunehmend international verflechtet sind. Um diesen Entwicklungen entgegenzuwirken haben Gesetzgeber und Börsenaufsichtsbehörden erhebliche Anstrengungen in Form von neuen Gesetzen und Vorschriften unternommen. Gesetzgebung und Rechtsprechung haben die Haftungsvoraussetzungen nicht nur konkretisiert, sondern vor allem auch zu Lasten der Unternehmensleitung verschärft. Bei vielen Unternehmensinsolvenzen stellte sich im nachhinein heraus, dass die Krise absehbar und abwendbar gewesen wäre, wenn die Aufsichtsratsmitglieder ihre Überwachungsaufgabe gewissenhaft wahrgenommen hätten. Aus diesem Grund ist auch die Haftung des Aufsichtsrats der Aktiengesellschaft in den Blickpunkt der öffentlichen Diskussion geraten. Die nach wie vor andauernden Aktivitäten des Gesetzgebers sind Teil der international [...]

With the progressive digitisation of the book production processes, we see the emergence of a potentially potent mix of new technologies. Not potent because these technologies are capable of driving change alones, but potent for the commercial and cultural drivers which may work in concert with new technologies to transform the world of books and reading. Central to these technological developments is the convergence of the technologies of etext and digital print. This book examines recent technological changes in book production. Our focus is in part on technological actuality, centred mostly on the digitisation of text and its consequences. Our focus is also on the realm of possibility. Where might these technological shifts lead us? What are the commercial and cultural conditions under which technological possibility might bear fruits? Within this volume we look specifically at the changing definition of a 'book'. A book is no longer a tangible thing; a book is what a book does. It is information architecture. We examine the various manifestations of electronic book readers and imminent technologies, such as electronic ink, including case study on the use of ebook reading devices by a lending library, and speculate about other uses of such devices. We see the convergence of print and etext - manifestations of the same thing - electronically stored text, with the difference demonstrated only in the shift in mindset necessary to accommodate emergent forms of digital text - as information services within a product-service system, the changing shape of digital design and changes in printing technologies from letterpress to the rise of digital printing.

Business-Driven Research & Development demonstrates how science and technology can be managed in order to meet well defined business directives. The book argues that it should be a fundamental business premise that the primary role of research and development is to fulfil strategic objectives, within a framework of time and cost targets. The book examines the traditional disconnection between research and development and the market place, and presents the means to derive competitive advantage through overcoming it.

I.T. Wars provides a clear path to proper alignment of technology and business, in achieving best results and ongoing returns. The true challenge is in bringing diverse groups of people together from the business and technical realms, in defining needs and making true delivery of solutions. The Business-Technology Weave is an approach that turns everyone and everything into a responsible forward edge. It includes considerations of people, knowledge, communication, corporate culture, attitudes, relationships, content (information), infrastructure, applications, needs, and expectations. It comprises missions with specific beliefs, values, and standards in service to security and growth. The Weave clears political impairments, helps to dismantle protectionism and jealousy, and breaks down departmental "silos." It opens the way to a future that you define - in preventing the alternative: future's imposition on you. What are the liabilities in today's environment of e-mail, blogs, IMs, downloads, and portable data? Consider: What is being done 'in the name of your domain'? How best to manage content, in avoiding a glut of information? How can staff best utilize the power of the utilities that are delivered to their desktops? What are the new scales of disaster planning, preparedness, prevention, and recovery? What is your organization's role in contributing to the surrounding public safety - in securing your own? I.T. Wars begins with a patient, comprehensive exposure of today's environment and challenges, with equal attention to the Business and IT reader. Whether your organization is public, private, government agency, or association you share in the same concerns: You need a business-driven technology strategy, as well as a business serving one. Now you can develop a vision and pragmatism strong enough to qualify for discussion, planning, and achievement of the best business-technology outcomes.

On behalf of the PROFES Organizing Committee we are proud to present the proce- th ings of the 10 International Conference on Product Focused Software Process - provement (PROFES 2009), held in Oulu, Finland. Since the first conference in 1999, the conference has established its place in the software engineering community as a respected conference that brings together participants from academia and industry. The roots of PROFES are in professional software process improvement motivated by product and service quality needs. The conference addresses both the solutions found in practice as well as relevant research results from academia. To ensure that PROFES retains its high quality and focus on the most relevant research issues, the conference has actively maintained close collaboration with industry and sub- quently widened its scope to the research areas of collaborative and agile software development. A special focus for 2009 was placed on software business to bridge research and practice in the economics of software engineering. This enabled us to cover software development in a more comprehensive manner and tackle one of the most important current challenges identified by the software industry and software research community – namely, the shift of focus from “products” to “services. ” The current global economic downturn emphasizes the need for new methods and so- tions for fast and business-oriented development of products and services in a gl- ally distributed environment.
