Our Time Is Now We have entered an age of disruption. Financial collapse, climate change, resource depletion, and a growing gap between rich and poor are but a few of the signs. Otto Scharmer and Katrin Kaufer ask, why do we collectively create results nobody wants? Meeting the challenges of this century requires updating our economic logic and operating system from an obsolete “ego-system” focused entirely on the well-being of oneself to an eco-system awareness that emphasizes the well-being of the whole. Filled with real-world examples, this thought-provoking guide presents proven practices for building a new economy that is more resilient, intentional, inclusive, and aware. “A watershed! An inspiring, practical weaving of the inner and outer dimensions of the systemic changes so many around the world are now working toward.” —Peter Senge, Senior Lecturer, MIT Sloan School of Management; Founding Chair, Society for Organizational Learning; and author of The Fifth Discipline “Scharmer and Kaufer have succeeded in writing the book that has the potential to transform civilization from one based on a rapacious, ego-driven economics to a viable, ecological, awareness-based model. This is a must-read for anyone who cares. It may well be the single most important book you ever read.” —Arthur Zajonc, President, Mind and Life Institute, and author of Meditation as Contemplative Inquiry “Scharmer and Kaufer provide a creative and practical approach to shifting our economies. I see business as a movement, and this book shares that movement with the world, offering us inspiration to tap into the deeper levels of our humanity and urging us to transform the crises of our times.” —Eileen Fisher, founder, Eileen Fisher, Inc. “The shift to an eco-system economy is emerging everywhere around us. Otto’s and Katrin’s clarity in identifying that this shift requires change-makers to expand our thinking from the head to the heart has helped me to be more intentional in designing processes to awaken the hearts of entrepreneurs everywhere. This is a necessary condition for the emergence of the new economy.” —Michelle Long, Executive Director, Business Alliance for Local Living Economies “The purpose of business is to enhance the well-being of society. The 4.0 framework for transforming capitalism matters because it addresses a blind spot in our current discourse: how to create institutional innovations that could shift our economy from ego- to eco-system awareness at the scale of the whole.” —Guilherme Peirão Leal, founder and Cochairman, Natura Cosméticos

Purpose & Impact is the first book aiming to provide guidance to senior executives and professionals for how to rethink and even relaunch careers that align with wider purpose and societal impact. With our increasing longevity, the concept of retirement is becoming redundant, as executives need, financially, and want, motivationally, to continue to work well beyond what is currently considered ‘retirement age’. Around age 50, when we often leave our mainstream employers, we could be looking forward to around 30 healthy years, equivalent to a whole second career. This book, therefore, sets out a topic that is becoming increasingly important and urgent for governments, companies and executives alike. This book is underpinned by research (including interviews with over 90 senior executives) conducted by the author. Many of their stories are interspersed throughout the book to provide the reader with real insight into how very diverse senior executives and professionals created roles that enabled their own personal growth and development and had positive impacts on wider society. In addition, helpful tools and guides are used throughout the book to help the reader in their decision-making processes through the different stages of discovering and developing themselves and their career goals.

Creating a Better Future This book offers a concise, accessible guide to the key concepts and applications in Otto Scharmer's classic Theory U. Scharmer argues that our capacity to pay attention coshapes the world. What prevents us from attending to situations more effectively is that we aren't fully aware of that interior condition from which our attention and actions originate. Scharmer calls this lack of awareness our blind spot. He illuminates the blind spot in leadership today and offers hands-on methods to help change makers overcome it through the process, principles, and practices of Theory U. And he outlines a framework for updating the “operating systems” of our educational institutions, our economies, and our democracies. This book enables leaders and organizations in all industries and sectors to shift awareness, connect with the highest future possibilities, and strengthen the capacity to co-shape the future.

This volume aims to outline the fundamental principles behind leadership, innovation and entrepreneurship and show how the interrelations between them promote business and trade practices in the global economy. Derived from the 2016 International Conference on Leadership, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (ICLIE), this volume showcases original papers presenting current research, discoveries and innovations across disciplines such as business, social sciences, engineering, health sciences and medicine. The pace of globalization is increasing at a rapid rate and is primarily driven by increasing volume of trade, accelerating pace of competition among nations, freer flows of capital and increased level of cooperation among trading partners. Leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurship are key driving forces in enhancing this phenomenon and are among the major catalysts for contemporary businesses trading in the global economy. This conference and the enclosed papers provides a platform in which to disseminate and exchange ideas to promote a better understanding of current issues and solutions to challenges in the globalized economy in relation to the fields of entrepreneurship, business and economics, technology management, and Islamic finance and management. Thus, the theories, research, innovations, methods and practices presented in this book will be of use to researchers, practitioners, student and policy makers across the globe.

In this in-depth examination of self-study as a research methodology, an international selection of physical education scholars share their ideas and experiences and consider the value of self-study as a vector for highlighting the emerging conflicts, dilemmas, and debates currently developing in teaching and teacher education pedagogies. A vital new addition to Springer’s series Self-Study of Teacher Education Practices, the volume is divided into three sections assessing the significance of the approach itself, offering detailed subject-relevant case studies, and exploring the nuances and controversies attending the evolution of the methodology. The contributors show how self-study enables reflexivity in pedagogical practice, a notable lacuna in current critical research, and at the same time they make the technique accessible to scholars of physical education wanting a practicable introduction to the subject. The analysis also explores the implications of applying self-study to pedagogy itself, to the curriculum, and to human movement and educational practice more generally. By embracing more organic, emergent notions of research practice and learning, the book achieves a broader and more inclusive survey of pedagogical work in physical education teacher education that fully acknowledges the complexities of the field.

Στην Κοινωνία του θεάματος- που κυκλοφόρησε το 1947-, ο Guy Debord εκθέτει συνεκτικά τους τρόπους λειτουργίας της σύγχρονης κοινωνίας όπως διαμορφώνεται από τα τέλη της δεκαετίας του 1920 και γιγαντώνεται, παροξυσμικά και παρανοϊκά, έως τις μέρες μας. Μισό αιώνα μετά την πρώτη του έκδοση, αυτό το μοναδικό βιβλίο παραμένει δυναμικά επίκαιρο. Γράφει ο Debord: «Το θέαμα δεν μπορεί να εννοηθεί ως κατάχρηση ενός κόσμους της όρασης, ως το προιόν των τεχνικών μαζικής διάχυσης εικόνων. Είναι μάλλον μια Weltanschauung [κοσμοθεώρηση] που έγινε πραγματική, που εκφράστηκε υλικά. Είναι μια θεώρηση του κόσμου που έγινε αντικειμενική». Όσον αφορά τον ίδιο τον συγγραφέα, ακολούθησε στη ζωή και έως τον εκούσιο θάνατό του έναν και μοναδικό κανόνα. Τον συνοψίζει στον πρόλογο της Τρίτης γαλλικής έκδοσης του ανά χείρας έργου: «Οφείλει κανείς να διαβάσει αυτό το βιβλίο έχοντας κατά νου ότι γράφτηκε με την πρόθεση να βλάψει την κοινωνία του θεάματος. Δεν είπα ποτέ τίποτα το εξωφρενικό».

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich BWL - Personal und Organisation, Note: 1.5, ZHAW - Zürcher Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften (School of Management and Law), Veranstaltung: MAS Human Systems Engineering, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die vorliegende Masterarbeit untersucht die Anwendung der Theorie U in der Praxis indem sie die Vorgehensweise von Anwendern zusammenträgt und in ein allgemeingültiges Klassifikationsschema einteilt. Dieses Resultat ist so gestaltet, dass es durch die Anwender wiederum als Hilfsmittel verwendet werden kann. Es geht hier um eine Erhebung der gängigen Vorgehensweise und der Verwendung von einzelnen Methoden. Gleichzeitig beurteilen die Anwender die Nützlichkeit und definieren unter welchen Rahmenbedingungen die Theorie U eingesetzt werden kann. Besonderen Wert legt diese Arbeit auf die Entwicklung einer Anwendungslandkarte, die das Design eines Interventionsablaufs, z.B. ein Veränderungsvorhaben erleichtert. Diese Anwendungskarte wird ergänzt durch die Beschreibungen der Rahmenbedingungen die bewirken, dass solche Interventionen erfolgreich sind und nachhaltig wirken. Die Untersuchung hat gezeigt, dass erst wenige Anwender die Theorie U vollständig nutzen indem sie alle Phasen durchlaufen. Viele Personen finden das Konzept sehr gut, haben es aber in der Praxis noch nicht angewendet, obwohl die Theorie U schon über 10 Jahre existiert. Diejenigen, die diese Methodologie in ihre Arbeit einbeziehen, benutzen eine Fülle von Methoden, die sie in den einzelnen Phasen anwenden. Auf der Basis dieser Arbeit kann nun ein Erfahrungsaustausch mittels eines gemeinsamen Klassifikationsschemas stattfinden. Der vielleicht durch den Impuls dieser Arbeit vermehrt und verbessert stattfindet. Die Resultate dieser Arbeit sind ein erster Schritt um die Anwendung der Theorie U zu verbessern und bilden ein Element zum Aufbau eines Fieldbooks oder Werkzeugkasten zur Theorie U. Die Ergebnisse sind ein klarer Schritt zur Verbesserung der Anwenderfreundlichkeit.
