Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich BWL - Unternehmensführung, Management, Organisation, Note: 2,3, Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen (Lehrstuhl für Innovations- und Technolgiemanagement), Veranstaltung: Wissensmanagement, 19 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In unserer heutigen Zeit, in der im Zuge der Globalisierung immer mehr Unternehmen auf den verschiedensten Märkten konkurrieren, wird es für Firmen zunehmend schwieriger Wettbewerbsvorteile zu erzielen. Ein Faktor, dem in den letzten Jahren in zunehmenden Maße Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt wurde, ist das immaterielle Vermögen der Unternehmen und dabei insbesondere das Wissensreservoir der eigenen Mitarbeiter.1Aufgrund internationalisierter Arbeitsteilung und dem Wandel von arbeits- und kapitalintensiven hin zu informations- und wissensintensiven Aktivitäten im Wirtschaftsgeschehen hat die Bedeutung des Wissens in den letzten Jahren stark zugenommen. Begünstigt wurde dieser Umstand durch den rapiden Ausbau von Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie, die einen Länderübergreifenden Wissensaustausch erst möglich machten.2 Ziel einer jeden Organisation muss es daher mittlerweile sein, durch eine verbesserte Nutzung von Wissen, Produktivitäts- und Qualitätssteigerungen zu erreichen, sowie durch einen kontinuierlichen Innovationsprozess einen dauerhaften Wettbewerbsvorteil zu erzielen.3 Bei der Ressource Wissen gilt es aber zwischen dem explizitem und dem implizitem Wissen zu unterscheiden. Das explizite Wissen der Mitarbeiter ist dieses, was man in Formeln, Gleichungen und ähnlichem ausdrücken kann. Es kann dementsprechend relativ einfach verbalisiert und visualisiert werden. Implizites Wissen dagegen kann nicht ohne weiteres einfach so „abgezapft“ werden. Es ist erlerntes Wissen, dass zum Beispiel durch den täglichen Umgang mit Maschinen, Arbeitsprozessen oder durch langjährige Erfahrungen in anderen Gebieten entsteht.4 Dieses Wissen ist für Unternehmen insofern wichtig, da sich Probleme an unterschiedlichen Standorten in ähnlicher Art und Weise oft wiederholen. Somit kann eine unnötige mehrfache Erfindung des Rades vermieden werden. Die Frage die sich aufgrund dieser Unterscheidung für das Management stellt ist die, wie man das implizite Wissen des Einzelnen unternehmensweit verfügbar machen kann. Ein Konzept das seit dem Anfang der 90er Jahre rasch an Popularität gewann, ist das Modell der Communities of Practice5. Der Begriff geht auf den Schweizer Sozialwissenschaftler Etienne Wenger6 zurück, der 1991 zum ersten Mal von solch einer Wissensgemeinschaft sprach. Im folgenden Abschnitt wird eine derartige Community dargestellt und aufgezeigt, wie sie in das Unternehmensgeschehen eingegliedert werden kann. [...]

The SAGE Encyclopedia of Action Research

Action research is a term used to describe a family of related approaches that integrate theory and action with a goal of addressing important organizational, community, and social issues together with those who experience them. It focuses on the creation of areas for collaborative learning and the design, enactment and evaluation of liberating actions through combining action and research, reflection and action in an ongoing cycle of cogenerative knowledge. While the roots of these methodologies go back to the 1940s, there has been a dramatic increase in research output and adoption in university curricula over the past decade. This is now an area of high popularity among academics and researchers from various fields—especially business and organization studies, education, health care, nursing, development studies, and social and community work. The SAGE Encyclopedia of Action Research brings together the many strands of action research and addresses the interplay between these disciplines by presenting a state-of-the-art overview and comprehensive breakdown of the key tenets and methods of action research as well as detailing the work of key theorists and contributors to action research.

Information resource management is too often seen as a domain dominated by technology, or, at best, one in which human considerations are secondary to and dependent on technological systems. This title brings together chapters from Europe, Australasia, Canada and the Americas, all drawn together by the common theme of the book. It will present information management not as technology influenced by people, but as fundamentally a people-centred domain.

When initially published in 2005, the two-volume Encyclopedia of Public Relations was the first and most authoritative compilation of the subject. It remains the sole reference source for any library serving patrons in business, communication, and journalism as it explores the evolution of the field with examples describing the events, changing practices, and key figures who developed and expanded the profession. Reader’s Guide topics include Crisis Communications & Management, Cyberspace, Ethics, Global Public Relations, Groups, History, Jargon, Management, Media, News, Organizations, Relations, Reports, Research, and Theories & Models. Led by renowned editor Robert L. Heath, with advisory editors and contributors from around the world, the set is designed to reach a wide array of student readers who will go on to serve as opinion leaders for improving the image and ethics of the practice. The Second Edition continues to explore key challenges facing the profession, such as earning the trust and respect of critics and the general public. Much greater emphasis and space will be placed on a theme that was just emerging when the First Edition appeared: the Internet and social media as public relations tools. International coverage and representation has been greatly expanded, as well. Finally, biographies (which are now widely available on the Web) have been deleted to give room to areas of enhanced coverage, and biographical material are included where appropriate within the context of topical entries. However, a long entry on women pioneers in public relations has been included as an appendix.

All of us, as Canadians, are touched throughout our lives by some aspect of social welfare, either as recipients, donors, or taxpayers. But despite the importance of the social network in our country, there has been no single source of information about this critical component of our society. Even professionals in the field of social work or social services have not had a comprehensive volume addressing the myriad features of this critical societal structure. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work fills this need. Over five hundred topics important to Canadian social work are covered, written by a highly diverse group of social workers covering all aspects of the field and all areas of the country. Practitioners, policy makers, academics, social advocates, researchers, students, and administrators present a rich overview of the complexity and diversity of social work and social welfare as it exists in Canada. The principal finding from this project underscores the long-held perception that there is a Canadian model of social work that is unique and stands as a useful model to other countries. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work will be an important source of information, both to Canadians and to interested groups around the world. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work is available in e-book version by subscription or from university and college libraries through the following vendors: Canadian Electronic Library, Ebrary, MyiLibrary, and Netlibrary.
