The SAGE Handbook of Complexity and Management is the first substantive scholarly work to provide a map of the state of art research in the growing field emerging at the intersection of complexity science and management studies. Edited and written by internationally respected scholars from management and related disciplines, the Handbook will be the definitive reference source for understanding the implications of complexity science for management research and practice. Part One: Foundations introduces complexity science and its implications for the foundations of scientific knowledge, including management knowledge. Part Two: Applications presents the numerous ways in which complexity science models and tools, as well as complexity thinking, are being applied to management and organizational phenomena and the insights gained as a result. Part Three: Interfaces highlights how complexity science is transforming various non-management fields and, in so doing, creating exciting interfaces for bridging between management and related disciplines.

This book focuses on the process of creating and educating innovation leaders through specialized programs, which are offered by leading academic schools. Accordingly, the book is divided into two parts. While the first part provides the theoretical foundations of why and how innovation leaders should be created, the second part presents evidence that these foundations can already be found in the programs of ten top-level universities. Part one consists of six chapters following a rigorous plan of content development, addressing topics ranging from (1) innovation, to (2) the settings where innovation occurs, (3) innovation leadership, (4) the need to change education, (5) a taxonomy of advanced educational experiences, and (6) cases of positive vs negative innovation leadership in the context of complex problems. Here the authors show that a new kind of innovation leadership is urgently needed, how it can be created, and how it is put into action. The second part is a collection of invited chapters that describe in detail ten leading academic programs: their objectives, curricular organization, enrollment procedures, and impact on students. Selected programs include four North American institutions (Stanford’s d.school, Harvard’s Multidisciplinary Engineering Faculty, Philadelphia University, OCAD’s Master of Design on Strategic Foresight & Innovation), five European institutions (Alta Scuola Politecnica of Milano and Torino, the EIT Master Program, Paris’ d.school, Brighton’s Interdisciplinary Design Program, Aalto University) and the Mission D program at Tongji University in China. The book is dedicated to all those who recognize the need to provide stimuli regarding innovation and innovation leadership, primarily but not exclusively in academia. These include, but are not limited to, professors, deans and provosts of academic institutions, managers at private organizations and government policy-makers – in short, anyone who is engaged in promoting innovation within their own organization, and who feels the need to expand the intellectual and practical toolbox they use in this demanding and exciting endeavor.

Electronic Inspection Copy available for instructors here Leadership pervades every aspect of organizational and social life, and its study has never been more diverse, nor more fertile. With contributions from those who have defined that territory, this volume is not only a key point of reference for researchers, students and practitioners, but also an agenda-setting prospective and retrospective look at the state of leadership in the twenty-first century. It evaluates the domain and stretches it further by considering leadership scholarship from every angle, concluding with an optimistic look at the future of leaders, followers and their place in organizations and society at large. Each section represents a distinctive slant on leadership: - Macro perspectives - including strategic leadership, organization theory, charismatic leadership, complexity leadership, and networks. - Political and philosophical perspectives - including distributed leadership, critical leadership, ethics, the military and cults. - Psychological perspectives - including personality, leadership style and contingency theories, transformational leadership, exchange relationships, shared leadership, cognition, leadership development, gender, trust, identity and the 'dark side' of leadership. - Cultural perspectives - including spirituality, aesthetics, and creativity. - Contemporary and emergent perspectives - followership, historical methods, virtual leadership, emotions, image, celebrity, and the quest for a general theory of leadership

Change in der Krise kann jeder - das ist keine Management-Kunst. Doch wie bekommen Sie Ihre Mannschaft bewegt, wenn der Veränderungsdruck noch nicht in den Quartalszahlen spürbar ist? Change-Prozesse gestalten heißt: das Spiel kontrollieren. Für derartige Prozesse in Unternehmen, die kein Sanierungsfall sind, sind völlig andere Kompetenzen gefragt als beim klassischen Restrukturierungsmanagement. Genau hier setzen Stefan Iskan und Erwin Staudt mit ihrem Autorenteam an. Sie verdeutlichen, dass in Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft ein völlig anderes Verständnis von Change Management benötigt wird. Und zwar eines, das - jenseits von Krisen- und Turnaround- Management - dem bewussten und strategischen Wandel nahekommt und Veränderungsbereitschaft als neuen kritischen Erfolgsfaktor, ja sogar neuen Input-Faktor, in den Unternehmen betrachtet. „Dieses Buch ist nichts für Manager, die in kleinen Schritten arbeiten. Die Herausgeber und ihr Autorenteam beweisen Mut, indem sie das „Change Desaster“ in Unternehmen ungeschönt beim Namen nennen und ungemütliche Fragen aufwerfen. Die Autoren wissen, wovon sie sprechen. Und das zeigen sie hier mit großer Leidenschaft.“ Thomas Blank, Chief Executive Officer Area Central Europe bei Agility & Member of the European Management Board

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Methodologie und Methoden, Note: 1,0, Universitat Konstanz (Fachbereich: Soziologie), Veranstaltung: Netzwerkanalyse, 5 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Arbeit befasst sich mit dem 1993 im American Journal of Sociology erschienenen Aufsatz von John Padgett Robust Action and the rise of the Medici 1400-1434." Die Relevanz dieses Artikels fur das Thema der Netzwerkanalyse ergibt sich schon aus dem Titel des Papers, welcher frei ubersetzt stabile Beziehungen" lauten konnte. Padgett, der an der University of Chicago eine Professur fur Politikwissenschaften inne hat, ist ausserdem auswartiger Professor am Santa Fe Institute, wo er sich sich seit 15 Jahren mit dem Thema: Innovation in Markets - Co-Evolution of State and Market in Renaissance Florence" beschaftigt. In diesen Rahmen ist auch der hier zu behandelnde Aufsatz einzuordnden. Padgett verfolgt mit der Arbeit die Absicht, seine These zu belegen, dass die Medici im Florenz zur Zeit des Ubergangs von Spatmittelalter zur Fruhrenaissance nicht, wie bisher von Geschichtswissenschaftlern vermutet, ihre immense Macht und Bedeutung erlangten, indem sie die eigene Differenz zum bestehenden System der Oligarchen ausbauten und aus ihren unterschiedlichen sozialen Attributen Kapital schlugen, sondern dass sie den Oligarchen auf struktureller Ebene glichen. Sie mussten sich also vielmehr auf einer anderen Ebene von den bisherigen elitaren Strukturen unterscheiden. Wie wir sehen werden, wird diese Ebene durch den Terminus robust action" umrissen. Zum einfacheren Verstandnis wollen wir uns in der Unterteilung dieser Arbeit an die Vorlage halten. Nach einer kurzen Definition des Problems und der verwendeten Begriffe in diesem spezifischen Kontext, widmen wir uns Padgetts Untersuchungen der Sozialstruktur anhand seiner drei verschiedenen Modelle. Diese sind im Einzelnen die Netzwerkanalyse zur Untersuchung der Attributverteilung unt
