Genre: Technology & Engineering

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.

Corporate Governance und Sarbanes Oxley Act Haftungsrechtliche Anforderungen an die Unternehmensleitung und Risikomanagement von Aktiengesellschaften

Publisher: diplom.de
ISBN: 9783832491703
Release Date: 2005-12-12
Genre: Business & Economics

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 [...]

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.

Print and Electronic Text Convergence

Author: Bill Cope
Publisher: Common Ground
ISBN: 9781863350716
Release Date: 2001
Genre: Computers

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.
