Thanks to the technical development, 3D photography creates an amazingly realistic even for our today’s challenging viewing habits spatial illusion in a normal image format. A Europe-wide unique pioneering role which ensures the 3D-Fotolabor of PixelfotoExpress, as the first laboratory, which offers the production of 3D images of customer photographs.

The same desire is based on even the phenomenon that many construction sites at once raised, with the same effect. It is therefore good to run, always in mind when planning that IT systems by, with and for persons to be used and are useless for himself alone taken always. The budget is enough only for the Essentials “: of course.” Only, it is of the essence to get new IT functionalities, or is it better? If the benefits of good systems are discussed and sold, and the positive results achieved by other companies, be taken as a model, often falls a good part of what has enabled these successes under the table. Namely, the investments that advance made in these organizations, to create a climate and a culture whose Foundation was possible changes without major disruptions. What is easy, because it is difficult to quantify these efforts, and to establish a mechanical causation. For the budget planning, much about licenses, the programming effort is then discussed in hours and the necessary adjustments to hardware. And very little about training classes that are not related to the operation of the program, but on the introduction and Involvement of stakeholders.

And likes fails also the planning time and resources for meetings and other activities that are not exchanging facts, but discussion and consensus, that finally the people should work and unable to speak. It is therefore good to keep in mind that it needs the investment in people to secure the investment in systems. The experts will be there “: A look at the organizational chart and the descriptions of roles that are created for the planning of a change in a system or a system change can be very enlightening.” Top management acts as a sponsor”and bears the responsibility. The project management is an IT expert, who is the driving force, and coordinates several external systems experts with the support of the internal IT support. In the periphery the managers, supervisors and team leaders show up somewhere then, whose Bereiche are affected by the change of system. In an advisory capacity, with dotted lines of reporting to the project manager. And of course you can their employees also include, where necessary. “So shortened it is visible: people are at the heart of what’s going to happen, the everyday” don’t know the Organization and working with existing systems.

The lower and middle management can be confined to the function, to provide expertise to the IT project team. But who is responsible management now for the change? There’s then the practical concept of total responsibility”for the project, and the project leader has a mission, which is perhaps not aware of him, but certainly should present him quite a problems. Not necessarily even an expert on change management is an IT expert. And even if the disengagement does rest, the project management of the operational area to all involved life difficult to make. There are significant design flaws, when forming and embedding are the change not the de facto leaders and stakeholders, and if no matching resources to cope with these tasks scheduled be. “And needless to erwahnen(?) – an appropriate resource can be created not by that one somewhere in the organization chart the title change manager” adds. It is therefore good to keep in mind that the experts only be set, if there are any for all relevant tasks, and they can start their work on a reasonable basis. In this sense: Good luck!

The Renaissance Of Sustainability

Sustainability as a Leadershipprinzip – a response to the current crisis in the midst of the financial crisis shows what companies sustainably operate and which are not. Was both in the new economy often sustainability principles, laughed at, so this also occurred against the background of the financial crisis, taking not only the banks ignored the principle of sustainability, but also companies such as Porsche and Schaeffler Group. Details can be found by clicking Digital Cameras or emailing the administrator. General Motors has long abandoned the principle never really internalized and Karstadt is not registered. Short-term action before long-term sustainable economies was the motto. Sure, the financial crisis would not have, would have taken Porsche VW, the Schaeffler Group in continental and GM motors would further rehabilitate as well as Karstadt. The question which arises: Why have so many CFO BBs ignored, that money was so low and have not based on the monetary policy, more or less your business strategy a debt policy of the consumers in the United States? Because the internal figures spoke a different language? Because the EVA (economic value added and the EBIT margin) were focused on growth? We have tried in an investigation to find out what is different from other companies that living sustainably and practice and whether they are successful. Basically sustainable enterprises on six core criteria can be set: sustainable management oriented means constantly to expand the core continuous consideration of the strategy, the risks and the opportunities sustainable corporate governance includes sustainable corporate governance risk-conscious growth strategy includes sustainable management includes the external environment stakeholders sustainable management no abrupt change of strategy, but resembles a non-turbulent flow of sustainable corporate management has a comprehensible mission statement for customers, Employee and shareholder are what companies this way and gone and it consistently with their management implemented? Here are three examples: The FA REVO, a sunglasses manufacturer based in the United States has at no time his core field, Polarized Sunglasses high tech leave.

Global markets have been opened up consistently with the Luxotica group. IKEA has held more than 5 years on his concept of America despite setbacks and successfully mixed the American ideas with your own.
