Die notwendige Revolution : Wie Individuen und Organisationen zusammenarbeiten, um eine nachhaltige Welt zu schaffen / von Peter M. Senge, Bryan Smith, Nina Kruschwitz, Joe Laur, Sara Schley Klimawandel, Raubbau an natürlichen Ressourcen, wachsende Müllberge, giftige Abfälle - die bestehenden und drohenden Krisen des Industriezeitalters fordern jeden Einzelnen zum Umdenken auf. Wie kann der notwendige radikale Wandel gelingen, der zu einem nachhaltigen Wirtschaften führt? Peter Senge und seine Koautoren liefern in diesem Buch nicht nur eine eindrucksvolle Bestandsaufnahme gegenwärtiger Krisen samt Entstehungsgeschichte. Sie führen auch ein neues Denken vor, das unser soziales und wirtschaftliches System als Teil eines größeren natürlichen Systems begreift. Mehr noch: Anhand zahlreicher Beispiele zeigen sie, dass die notwendige Revolution bereits in vollem Gange ist. Die Autoren - Organisationsberater und Wissenschaftler - berichten von den Erfahrungen erfolgreicher Vorreiter des Wandels, von Einzelpersonen und Organisationen, die mit innovativen Ansätzen und in kooperativen Partnerschaften und Netzwerken bereits an der kreativen Gestaltung einer nachhaltigen Welt arbeiten. Die Beispielgeschichten von Coca-Cola bis zum Chemiekonzern DuPont zeigen, dass nachhaltiges Handeln kein karitatives Unterfangen ist, sondern ein notwendiges Gebot für Unternehmen, die auch in Zukunft erfolgreich und konkurrenzfähig bleiben wollen. Die Beispiele werden ergänzt durch Tools zur Strategieplanung sowie praktische Anleitungen für erfolgreiche Veränderungsinitiativen und den Aufbau von Unternehmensnetzwerken. Aus dieser Kombination entsteht ein unentbehrliches Handbuch für alle, die eine nachhaltige Welt für uns und unsere Nachkommen schaffen wollen.

The American Midwest Managing Change in Rural Transition

Author: Norman Walzer
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781315498393
Release Date: 2016-07-08
Genre: Business & Economics

The rural Midwest is undergoing fundamental changes with increased competition from foreign agriculture; employment shifts from higher-paying manufacturing to lower-paying service industries; the displacement of local small town business by large discount stores and shopping malls; overall population declines that threaten the viability of schools, hospitals, and other public institutions, along with an influx of minority groups that has led to strife in some communities. Using data from the 2000 Census, this collection examines the major demographic and employment trends in the rural Midwestern states with special attention to the issues that state and local policy makers must address in the near future. The contributors are well known experts in their fields, and in these original, previously unpublished materials they offer suggestions on how the Internet and other technological advances offer new opportunities for rural economies that local leaders can build on.

Genre: Business & Economics

A clear, practical guide to implementing Open Innovation for new product development Open Innovation: New Product Development Essentials from the PDMA is a comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of the Open Innovation method. Written by experts from the Product Development and Management Association, the book packages a collection of Open Innovation tools in a digestible and actionable format. Real-world case studies drawn from the authors' own successes and failures illustrate the concepts presented, providing accurate representation of the opportunities and challenges of Open Innovation implementation. Key tools are presented with a focus on immediate applications for business, allowing NPD professionals to easily discern where this cutting edge development method can push innovation forward. Open Innovation assumes that companies can and should use both internal and external ideas and paths to market, permeating the boundaries between firm and environment. Innovations transfer outward and inward through purchase, licensing, joint ventures, and spin-offs, allowing companies to expand beyond their own research and dramatically improve productivity through collaboration. PDMA Essentials provides practical guidance on exploiting the Open Innovation model to these ends, with clear guidance on all aspects of the new product development process. Topics include: Product platforming and idea competitions Customer immersion and interaction Collaborative product design and development Innovation networks, rewards, and incentives Many practitioners charged with innovation have only a vague understanding of the specific tools available for Open Innovation, and how they might be applied. As the marketplace shifts dramatically to keep pace with changing consumer behaviors, remaining relevant increasingly means ramping up innovation processes. PDMA Essentials provides the tools NPD practitioners need to implement a leading innovation method, and drive continued growth.
