Zukunftskompetenz Projektmanagement: Wie wir zu erfolgreicheren UmsetzerInnen werden

Die Fussball Weltmeisterschaft ist eine tolle Zeit. Es ist nämlich jene Zeit, in der bei schönem Wetter mit guten Freunden gegessen, getrunken und geredet – und natürlich auch ein bisschen Fussball geschaut wird. Kürzlich hatte ich bei einem nicht so interessanten Spiel einen umso spannenderen Austausch mit einem Kollegen, der geschäftlich viel auf Reisen ist. … Weiterlesen Zukunftskompetenz Projektmanagement: Wie wir zu erfolgreicheren UmsetzerInnen werden

An effective method to solve complex problems

In my doctoral thesis I asked myself how the agility in organizations can be fostered. A rather complex problem, since organizations are social systems with interdependent effects. In addition, agility was at that time mostly coined from the IT environment. My dissertation, which I was able to submit for final review these days, is unlikely … Weiterlesen An effective method to solve complex problems

Eine effektive Methode, um komplexe Probleme zu lösen

In meiner Doktorarbeit stellte ich mir die Frage, wie die Agilität in Unternehmen gefördert werden kann. Eine doch eher komplexe Problemstellung, da es sich bei Organisationen um soziale Systeme mit interdependenten Wirkungskräften handelt. Kommt hinzu, dass Agilität zu Beginn meiner Doktorarbeit in der Praxis v.a. im IT-Umfeld ein Begriff war. Meine Dissertation, die ich in diesen … Weiterlesen Eine effektive Methode, um komplexe Probleme zu lösen

Which „digital“ competences do we need in the future? A case study with generic value

I have already described the dynamics of digital transformation in several contributions (cf. Krapf 2017; Krapf 2016a). In a specific contribution, I also discussed the importance of elaborate (action) competences and their systemic safeguarding in the new age of automation. In an age in which machines are not only replacing our muscle power, but are … Weiterlesen Which „digital“ competences do we need in the future? A case study with generic value

A procedural model for developing learning cultures in practice

In an earlier article, I pointed out what learning culture is and why this topic is becoming more and more important in the course of agility. At this point, I would like to discuss how these findings can be used in practice in order to shape and influence the development of learning cultures in practice. … Weiterlesen A procedural model for developing learning cultures in practice

Development of digital competences – three practical approaches

In an earlier contribution, I have identified fields of action in which digital competences play a role (Krapf 2017b). The basis of this thought structure was the division into an operative, a strategic and a normative level (see Fig. 1). This framework of reference was not an end in itself, but was to be used … Weiterlesen Development of digital competences – three practical approaches

Agile organizational structure – a framework for context-specific design

Against the background of the increasing dynamics of change resulting from digital transformation, agility receives a high degree of attention. Agility is thereby understood as the ability to respond to changes effectively and efficiently (Häusling und Fischer 2016, p. 30; Zobel 2005, p. 160). However, depending on the discipline, a slightly different focus is chosen. … Weiterlesen Agile organizational structure – a framework for context-specific design
