High-involvement innovation

building and sustaining competitive advantage through continuous change

At a time when the turbulent and uncertain environment demands more innovation than ever, most businesses only engage a small proportion of their staff in innovative activities. Whilst they may have groups and individuals who are 'licensed to innovate' by virtue of their particular departmental badges (e.g. R&D, business development etc.) they often ignore the contribution which the rest of the staff could make. Innovation involves a lot of small incremental steps, as well as the occasional dramatic leap, and whilst experts are needed for the latter, many more people contribute to incremental innovation. In "High Involvement Innovation, " John Bessant describes how the involvement of the workforce as a whole can contribute their creativity and experience to help build a culture of continuous innovation. Designed for MBA and MSc courses in the management of technology and innovation, "High Involvement Innovation" will also be highly relevant to practicing managers who are facing the challenge of trying to mobilize their organizations to be more capable of continuous innovation. Supplementary materials for lecturers adopting "High Involvement Innovation" can be found on the following website: www.wiley.co.uk/innovate

Das Prinzip Dringlichkeit

Schnell und konsequent handeln im Management

Publisher: Campus Verlag

Bestsellerautor John P. Kotter hat in den letzten 35 Jahren beobachtet, was Menschen tun, damit ihre Unternehmen gut funktionieren. Auf diesen Erkenntnissen basiert sein neues Buch. Hier spricht Kotter von der Dringlichkeit, permanent nach wichtigen Belangen im Unternehmen Ausschau zu halten und im Bedarfsfall so schnell wie möglich zu handeln, um ein Unternehmen wandlungsfähig und damit erfolgreich zu machen. Menschen, die ein Gespür für diese Dringlichkeit besitzen, suchen automatisch immer nach Risiken, die das Unternehmen gefährden sowie nach Möglichkeiten zur Verbesserung. Kotter erklärt, wodurch sich echte Dringlichkeit auszeichnet, weshalb sie ein unschätzbar wertvolles Gut ist und wie Manager das Gefühl für Dringlichkeit in ihrem Umfeld wecken, stärken und bewahren können. Seine Ausführungen erläutert Kotter an zahlreichen Beispielen aus der ganzen Welt.

Die ökonomischen Institutionen des Kapitalismus

English summary: It is Oliver E. Williamson's theory that people behave rationally to a limited extent only and tend to act in their own interests. He shows how post-contractual problems can arise within the framework of relationship-specific dealings, which are subject to a great deal of environmental uncertainty and require specific investments. In order to cope with these problems, capitalist economic systems provide numerous institutions and coordination mechanisms whose efficiency is examined.Williamson studies economic transactions from an economic, legal and organizational perspective. He differentiates between the individual frequency. In doing so, he assigns the most efficient, i.e. the most cost-effective form of coordination to each type of transaction. The structuring, the monitoring of corporations and issues in antitrust law) as well as highly significant empirical evidence attest to its practical importance. German description: Oliver E. Williamson geht von der Annahme aus, dass Menschen sich nur in begrenztem Masse rational verhalten und dazu neigen, im Eigeninteresse zu handeln. Er zeigt, wie es im Rahmen von Leistungsbeziehungen, die einer hohen Umweltunsicherheit unterliegen und spezifische Investitionen erfordern, zu nachvertraglichen Problemen kommt. Kapitalistische Wirtschaftssysteme stellen fur die Bewaltigung dieser Probleme zahlreiche Institutionen bzw. Koordinationsmechanismen zur Verfugung, die auf ihre Effizienz untersucht werden.Wirtschaftliche Leistungsbeziehungen (Transaktionen) werden aus okonomischer, rechtlicher und organisatorischer Sicht untersucht. Die einzelnen Transaktionen werden nach den Kriterien Spezifitat, Unsicherheit, Komplexitat und Haufigkeit unterschieden. Jedem Transaktionstyp wird dabei die effizienteste, d.h. kostengunstigste Koordinationsform zugeordnet. Den hohen praktischen Stellenwert dieser Vorgehensweise beweisen die zahlreichen Anwendungsmoglichkeiten (Vertikale Integration, Unternehmensstrukturierung, Kontrolle in Aktiengesellschaften und kartellrechtliche Fragestellungen) sowie hochsignifikante empirische Befunde.Die deutsche Ubersetzung der erfolgreichen amerikanischen Originalausgabe wendet sich sowohl an Wissenschaftler als auch an Praktiker, die an einer Integration von okonomischen, rechtlichen und organisatorischen Fragestellungen interessiert sind.
