Organizational processes and the organization-environment interaction are discussed in this volume of the Handbook of Work and Organizational Psychology. Both organizational and environmental characteristics affect the behaviour of individuals and groups, but such characteristics are in turn also influenced by behavioural features. This volume on organizational psychology covers subject areas such as organization theory, organizational culture and change, leadership, decision making and participation, motivation and satisfaction, payment systems, effective communication, and social-organizational aspects of automation. The final chapter describes the impact upon behaviour and attitudes of the transition of a socialist-led society to a market economy.

Genre: Education

Leadership and Cooperation in Academia focuses on the place and the role of universities in different societies, including their influence on the socio-economic development of those societies. Across the world academic institutions are being questioned by their stakeholders and pressured to change. Answering these questions requires that academics and professional managers in universities think about their work, its value and organisation. The book highlights the need for space and stimulus to reflect on the responsibilities, roles and expectations that they identify for themselves, and that others place upon them Ð then, they might be better able to understand and to act. Similarly, policymakers and higher education commentators need the space and stimulus to reflect on the role of universities. This book will provide this space and an invaluable contribution to the stimulus. This innovative volume will be enriching to academics and professional managers who are interested in leading, managing and contributing in an academic environment. Policymakers and higher education commentators concerned with the development and impacts of universities will also find plenty of insightful information in this timely study.

Genre: Business & Economics

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.
