Addressing both renowned theories and standard applications, Stories of Life in the Workplace explains how stories affect human practices and organizational life. Authors explore how we experience, interpret, and personalize narrative stories in our everyday lives, and how these communicative acts impact our social aims and interactions. In pushing the boundaries of how we perceive narrative and organization, the authors include stories that are broadly applicable across all concepts and experiences. With a perception of narrative and its organizational application, chapters focus on areas such as pedagogy, therapy, project management, strategic planning, public communication, and organizational culture. [This volume] shows how individuality, developing culture, and the psychology of the self are constructed with language--and how the acceptance of one's self is accomplished by reaffirming and rearranging one's story.--Provided by publisher.

Formalit T Und Informalit T In Organisationen

Dass Formalität und Informalität in Organisationen zusammenspielen, ist für die Organisationsforschung nicht neu, aber immer wieder aktuell: Organisationen bewältigen Unsicherheit einerseits durch steigende Regelungsdichte und Standardisierung und andererseits dadurch, dass sie klassische formale Organisationsstrukturen abbauen und auf Flexibilität, Selbstmotivation und Kooperation setzen. Beide Entwicklungslinien führen zu Folgeproblemen. Vor dem Hintergrund dieser Entwicklungen thematisiert dieser Band folgende Fragestellungen: Wann findet warum eine Formalisierung des Informellen – oder umgekehrt eine Informalisierung des Formalen – statt? Ist die theoretische Unterscheidung von Formalität und Informalität für die Analyse aktueller empirischer Phänomene geeignet? Und wie lassen sich informelle Strukturen und Prozesse überhaupt erfassen?

Organizational communication as a field of study has grown tremendously over the past thirty years.

Completely re-conceptualized, The SAGE Handbook of Organizational Communication, Third Edition, is a landmark volume that weaves together the various threads of this interdisciplinary area of scholarship. This edition captures both the changing nature of the field, with its explosion of theoretical perspectives and research agendas, and the transformations that have occurred in organizational life with the emergence of new forms of work, globalization processes, and changing organizational forms. Exploring organizations as complex and dynamic, the Handbook brings a communication lens to bear on multiple organizing processes.

Designers employ a variety of tools and techniques for speculating about buildings before they are built. In their simplest form, these are personal thought experiments. However, embracing advanced computer simulations means engaging a network of specialized people and powerful machines. In this book, Yanni Alexander Loukissas demonstrates that new tools have profound implications for the social distribution of design work; computer simulations are technologies for collective imagination. Organized around the accounts of professional designers engaged in a high-stakes competition to redefine their work for the technological moment, this book explores the emerging cultures of computer simulation in architecture. Not only architects, but acousticians, fire safety engineers, and sustainability experts see themselves as co-designers in architecture, engaging new technologies for simulation in an evolving search for the roles and relationships that can bring them both professional acceptance and greater control over design. By illustrating how practices of simulation inform the social relationships and professional distinctions that define contemporary architecture, the book examines the cultural transformations taking place in design practice today.

Diese Publikation erforscht und analysiert eine ganz besondere Form von Design: das ebenso normale wie wunderbare Phänomen, dass Menschen ohne Designanspruch bereits gestaltete Dinge umnutzen, anders nutzen, im besten Sinne "missbrauchen". Nicht Intentionales Design (NID) findet täglich, in jeder Lebenssphäre, in allen Teilen der Welt statt. Diese Umgestaltung durch Umnutzung macht die Dinge multifunktional, kombiniert mit kluger Erfindung neue Funktionen. Sie ist häufig reversibel, ressourcenschonend, improvisierend, innovativ, preiswert. Für das Design kann es zu einer Quelle der Inspiration werden, wenn die professionellen Designer erst einmal wahrnehmen, was im praktischen Gebrauch mit all den gestalteten Dingen tatsächlich geschieht.
