Two hundred years ago, humans made a stunning discovery in the far reaches of the solar system: a huge statue of an alien creature, with an inscription that defied all efforts at translation. Now, as faster-than-light drive opens the stars to exploration, humans are finding other relics of the race they call the Monument-Makers - each different, and each heartbreakingly beautiful. But except for a set of footprints on Jupiter's moon Iapetus, there is no trace of the enigmatic race that has left them behind. Then a team of scientists working on a dead world discover an ominous new image of the Monument-Makers. Somehow it all fits with other lost civilizations, and possibly with Earth's own future. And distant past. But Earth itself is on the brink of ecological disaster - there is no time to search for answers. Even to a question that may hold the key to survival for the entire human race

Widerstand in Organisationen, Organisationen im Widerstand virtuelle Plattformen, Edupunks und der nachfolgende Staat by Ayad Al-Ani( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Zeit scheint reif für eine neue Bewertung des Individuums in Organisationen. Neue Technologien und globalisierte Rahmenbedingungen verlangen äußerst kreative Anstrengungen im Rahmen von Freiräumen, die die neuen netzwerkartigen Organisationsformen nun erstmals ermöglichen. Geläufige Management- und Organisationsansätze stehen der Frage, wie Individualität und Führung solcher divergenter Interessen und Talente unter einen Hut zu bringen seien, noch ratlos gegenüber. Zwar wurden solche Diskussionen in den 60er und 70er Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts bereits geführt, allerdings unter einem politischen Primat, das so heute nicht mehr geläufig ist. Technisierung und Globalisierung haben nun eine neue Situation geschaffen. Dieses Buchprojekt soll skizzieren, wie sich die vor uns liegende Transformationsphase der schrittweisen bis stürmischen Zurückdrängung der Hierarchie zugunsten virtueller Plattformen und Kooperationen freier Produzenten in Wirtschaft und Politik entwickeln kann. Aufgezeigt wird unter anderem, welche Möglichkeiten zur Umsetzung eigener Interessen und Motivationen künftig zur Verfügung stehen und welcher Preis für diese radikale Individualisierung gezahlt werden muss. Der Inhalt Die Organisation von Individualität.-Führung in Netzwerken.- "To resist is to create": Das Individuum als Motor von InnovationenDie Zielgruppen Wirtschafts- und OrganisationssoziologInnen.- OrganisationsberaterInnen.- Führungskräfte, die sich mit dem Thema Innovation beschäftigen .- BetriebswirtInnen.- InformatikerInnen.- KommunikationswissenschaftlerInnen.- PolitikwissenschaftlerInnenDer AutorDr. Dr. Ayad Al-Ani ist Professor an der Hertie School of Governance, Berlin
