Scheidungen, kein Kontakt zu den Kindern, Gefängnis wegen Betrugs - all das hat Harvard-Professor Clayton M. Christensen bei ehemaligen Kommilitonen gesehen und es hat ihn zum Nachdenken angeregt: Wie konnte es so weit kommen? Und wie macht man es besser? Seine Überlegungen führten Christensen zu den drei grundlegenden Fragen: Wie führe ich ein glückliches und sinnerfülltes Privatleben? Wie werde ich beruflich erfolgreich und habe Freude an meiner Arbeit? Und wie vermeide ich es, im Gefängnis zu landen? Er findet die Antworten in Wirtschaftstheorien, die er auf persönliche Lebensentscheidungen überträgt - so zum Beispiel die Einführung einer Familienkultur, um den eigenen Kindern Leitlinien an die Hand zu geben. Dabei gibt er jedoch nicht rigide Verhaltensregeln vor, sondern liefert Denkanstöße, mit deren Hilfe der Leser zu seiner ganz persönlichen, maßgeschneiderten Strategie für ein erfülltes und erfolgreiches Leben gelangt.

Zum Inhalt Christensens wegweisendes Werk „The Innovator’s Dilemma“ erschien 1997 und zählt heute zu den wichtigsten Managementbüchern überhaupt. Der New York Times Bestseller wurde in über zehn Sprachen übersetzt und erhielt zahlreiche Auszeichnungen. Unternehmen scheitern aus vielen Gründen. Dass führende Unternehmen aber scheitern, weil sie im Grunde alles richtig machen, klingt paradox. Und doch erweisen sich die klassischen Erfolgsfaktoren wie Kunden-, Ertrags- und Wachstumsorientierung bei disruptiven Innovationen als geradezu gefährlich und existenzbedrohend. Anhand von Erfolgen und Fehlschlägen führender Unternehmen präsentiert „The Innovator’s Dilemma“ Regeln für einen gelungenen Umgang mit dem Phänomen bahnbrechender Innovationen. Diese Regeln werden Managern helfen zu entscheiden, wann es sinnvoll ist, sich nicht nach den Kundenwünschen zu richten, in weniger leistungsfähige Produkte mit geringeren Margen zu investieren oder in noch kleine, aber wachstumsstarke Marktsegmente zu stoßen. Das Buch zeigt die „Unlogik“ von disruptiven Innovationen auf und will zugleich Orientierung stiften, um Unternehmen – den etablierten wie den jungen – den Weg zum wirklich Neuen zu ebnen. „Die Beschäftigung mit Christensens Ideen ist für Praktiker wie Wissenschaftler gleichermaßen gewinnbringend.“ FAZ vom 27.12.2011

Academic libraries are in the midst of significant disruption. Academic librarians and university administrators know they need to change, but are not sure how. Bits and pieces of what needs to happen are clear, but the whole picture is hard to grasp. Reimagining the Academic Library paints a simple straightforward picture of the changes affecting academic libraries and what academic librarians need to do to respond to the changes would help to guide future library practice. The aim is to explain where academic libraries need to go and how to get there in a book that can be read in a weekend. David Lewis provides a readable survey of the current state of academic library practice and proposes where academic libraries need to go in the future to provide value to their campuses. His primary focus is on collections as this is the area with the greatest opportunity for change and is the driver of most library cost. Lewis provides an accessible framework for thinking about how library practice needs to adjust in the digital environment. The book will be useful not only to academic librarians, but also for librarians to share with presidents and provosts who a concise source for understanding where and how to focus their expenditures on libraries.

This book focuses on how companies are innovating with regard to the Bottom-of-the-Pyramid (BOP) − the lowest socio-economic segment, and the organizational conditions they need to be successful. The authors use several examples of disruptive innovations for this market, particularly in the Indian healthcare sector. Low-cost, specialty hospital chains like Aravind Eye Care and Narayana Hrudayalaya have brought down the cost of certain medical procedures significantly. The Indian conglomerate Tata Group and the American healthcare giant GE Healthcare have also developed affordable products targeted at the lowest-income segments in India. The authors present an in-depth analysis of these companies and present their insightful results on disruptive innovation and the ever-challenging BOP market.

ÔHealthy organisations are twice as likely to get better results than unhealthy ones, and this could be a matter of life and death if your business is healthcare. Whatever way you look at it, HR has a key role to play and the authors once again points the way.Õ Ð Clare Chapman, Group People Director, BT (British Telecoms) ÔIf healthcare systems around the world are to respond to the growing demands of an ageing population and advances in technology, then healthcare workforces will need to managed with imagination, agility and innovation. This important book sets out some of these challenges in a thoughtful and accessible way, allowing the reader to tap into the research pedigree of its authors and to draw out lessons and evidence which will inform both strategy and practice.Õ Ð Stephen Bevan, Director, Centre for Workforce Effectiveness, The Work Foundation This insightful book discusses vital concepts of system sustainability in terms of productivity, quality improvement, innovation and cost control in the context of maximising the potential of staff in the health care sector through effective human resource management. Health systems in the western world face increasingly intense pressure to contain or reduce costs, while countries such as China and India move towards universal coverage. The contributors illustrate that radical gains in efficiency and innovative practice are required internationally in health care systems. They argue that the high proportion of health care system costs invested in staffing place the human resource function at the forefront of meeting this challenge. Sustained system change and productivity gains, more effective management of staff and work climate are essential elements of reform and are all covered in this book The book provides practical examples as to how health service managers can rise to the challenge of sustaining services against greater pressures than ever before. It will strongly appeal to academics and students of health service management and public sector management. Health service managers, HR professionals in health as well as clinical staff will also find plenty of informative information in this enriching compendium.

Electronic health records are widely regarded as the 'connective tissue' of any modern healthcare system. For some they represent a 'dangerous enthusiasm' and for others a key enabler of 'disruptive innovation'. Many governments have made major policy and financial investments in digitalizing health records but their implementation has frequently run into opposition from doctors, had lukewarm responses from patients, and raised considerable concerns for privacy advocates and others worried by the security of sensitive health data and the risks of national data-bases. This book draws upon the concept of 'orders of worth' to reveal the moral dimensions of the medical division of labour and to delve deeper into understanding why electronic records have been so difficult to implement and the sources of opposition to them. The authors argue that digitalization disrupts the moral orders which define rights and responsibilities for the sharing and exchanging of patient medical data. This is illustrated through longitudinal studies of two of the most controversial attempts to introduce national systems - a patient controlled electronic record in Australia and a national summary care record that was part of the ill-fated NHS national program for IT in England. The authors conclude by using the lessons from these national experiences and insights from two regional projects in each country to suggest how the idea of electronic records might be re-thought. It is a must read for anyone concerned about health information and the implications of how it is shared and exchanged in a digital world.
