Abstract

Homecare ist ein junger Bereich, der die stationäre Versorgung mit der ambulanten Nachsorge verbindet und sämtliche weitere Versorger koordiniert. In der Praxis scheitert diese Idee derzeit noch häufig an fehlenden oder unpräzisen rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen sowie Akzeptanzbarrieren.Dieses Buch bietet einen umfassenden Überblick der aktuellen Versorgungssituation im Homecare-Bereich in Deutschland. Es diskutiert den Homecare-Markt und seine Potentiale, die rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen und gibt einen Überblick über nationale und internationale Studien zur Effektivität von Entlassmanagement und sektorenübergreifender Versorgung. Ein Praxisteil präsentiert Ergebnisse einer umfassenden empirischen Studie, die die Perspektiven von niedergelassenen Ärzten, Kliniken und stationärer sowie ambulanter Pflege zum Thema Homecare untersucht. Die Ergebnisse der Studie geben Aufschluss über die praktische Umsetzung der Homecare-Idee im Versorgungsalltag sowie die Potentiale und Risiken.

Abstract

Companies with high-performing supply chains enjoy essential competitive ad- vantages. However, supply chain management faces an environment of rising risk that endangers these competitive advantages. One of the reasons is to outsource parts of their business. This bears the risk of significantly increased lead times and lead time variability. It is the impact of lead time variability on inventory management that is the central aspect of this book. It describes a mathematical model for dual sourcing with two reorder points, shows the deviation between stochastic and deterministic calculations in a sensitivity analysis, and investigates different relaxations of a traditional dual-sourcing policy.

Abstract

"Lagoons represent nearly 13% of the shoreline globally and around 5% in Europe. Coastal lagoons are shallow water bodies separated from the ocean by a barrier (e.g., narrow spit), connected at least intermittently to the ocean by one or more restricted inlets, and usually geographically oriented parallel to the shore-line. Coastal lagoons are flexible and usually able to cope with environmental change, yet nowadays they are under threat. This is partly due to climate change impacts (for example, sea-level rise and hydro-meteorological extreme events) but also due to more direct human activities and pressures. The book focuses on addressing these challenges through integrated management strategies seen in a land-sea and science-stakeholder-policy perspective. Pan-European management challenges are seen from the context of the perspectives of Policy, Environment and Modelling. Four case study lagoons in different geographical locations in Europe provide examples of some of the practical experiences and results around these challenges. Possible impacts on drainage basins and lagoons are introduced through integrated scenarios which were developed through a multi-science and land-lagoon science perspective combined with interactions and contributions from stakeholders and citizens. Issues around climate change impacts on environmental conditions in both drainage basins and lagoons are also included. &#xD;&#xD;The book derives from a collaborative EC-funded project entitled 'Integrated Water Resources and Coastal Zone Management in European Lagoons in the Context of Climate Change' comprising nine partner institutes with a wide diversity in the scientific disciplines covered.

Abstract

The environment in which a company or organization operates today can be characterized&#xD;by accelerating change, the globalization of markets, the emergence of new technologies and&#xD;competitors, new regulatory requirements and ever more demanding users and citizens. In this&#xD;environment, the ability to innovate becomes a key success factor for most organizations. They&#xD;seek to continuously create and realize value by introducing new or changed products, services,&#xD;processes, models, methods, etc.&#xD;The reasons for an organization to innovate are many and can include to increase revenues,&#xD;growth and profitability, reduce costs and waste, increase the satisfaction of users, customers and&#xD;citizens, motivate employees and attract partners, collaborators and funding, and so on. Engaging&#xD;in innovation activities is thus a way for an organization to be future focused and effectively&#xD;deliver on its overall objectives to secure prosperity and longer-term relevance and survival.&#xD;The ability to innovate and to make it a core organizational capability is increasingly becoming&#xD;the most important differentiator and dominant success factor of organizations. Failing to&#xD;capture new opportunities and to respond to innovation challenges may consequently lead to&#xD;stagnation, irrelevance and ultimately to the demise of the organization.

Abstract

Like all the books in this series, this volume proposes wide-ranging reflections and cultural considerations pertinent to business management. Traditionally, realism is identified with a disenchanted approach to reality which is counterpoised to all forms of ideology or utopia. What is proposed here is a strategic realism which supports a humanist approach to enterprise, while steering clear of both cynicism and idealism. Seen from this angle, the crucial aspects of strategy are: the opportune selection of attainable advantages; interest as the spur to change; stratagem as a lever on the trend of events; the plan which traces the route of the opportunities called up, and the action that harvests the fruits.

Abstract

The Stanze della Moda project has set up an Observatory with the purpose of economic and management monitoring of the fabric of the Florentine companies through a marketing and research workshop. The analysis of several major international retailers demonstrates the emergence of a successful business model which, albeit in some respects idiosyncratic and difficult to transfer, represents an innovative stimulus for companies in the sector that want to redefine their competitiveness in the face of the altered market conditions. The focus on the Florentine companies delineates the ways in which the local manufacturers intercept the purchasing channels of major retail, creating a mediated form of sales on the international markets.
