Collaboration and teamwork are the keystones of organizational life. Managing a team requires specific competencies, the outcomes of a process of informed learning based on critical analysis not only of organizational successes, but failures as well. This book provides the tools, the methodology, and the guiding principles to support the people who work in teams as members and as leaders. The main issues inherent to team management are addressed by following a problem-based approach, with the aim of facilitating the achievement of team objectives. The authors encourage readers to reflect on the daily challenges of working on a team, and show how to lay the foundations for building a synergetic team: correctly structuring the team, assigning responsibilities, resolving conflicts, and managing decisions and meetings to optimize negotiation processes. The book also explores the advantages and obstacles to running geographically dispersed teams. Completing each chapter is an interview with an expert who offers answers to the myriad questions that team leaders have to ask themselves to be able to manage their teams with intelligence and common sense.

The Flexible Professional in the Knowledge Society New Challenges for Higher Education


Free Download The Flexible Professional in the Knowledge Society: New Challenges for Higher Education By Jim Allen, Rolf van der Velden (auth.), Jim Allen, Rolf van der Velden (eds.)
2011 | 260 Pages | ISBN: 9400713525 | PDF | 5 MB
This volume presents in detail the results, and policy implications, of a crucial project that aims to help shape the future for millions of Europeans. Higher education policy has increasingly gained a supranational dimension in Europe, with a federalist perspective boasting growing influence over national education policies. Given the vital links between the framework of higher education and the economy, this comes as no surprise in a Europe of coalescing financial interests. Against this background a large-scale research project was launched to assess the demands made by a modern ‘knowledge’ society on graduates of higher education. Called the REFLEX Project, it also aimed to establish the degree to which Europe’s higher education institutions are up to the task of equipping graduates with the skills to meet these demands. Rather than focus solely on tertiary education institutions, the REFLEX Project also sought to analyze how the requirements of the wider economy-as well as graduates’ ability to fulfil them-are in turn influenced by the way in which the process of work is organized in institutions of employment.It was a huge project undertaken across 16 nations, featuring a survey of Europe-wide proportions-with some 70,000 graduate respondees. In addition to setting out the findings of the survey, whose content constitutes the largest data set of any comparable undertaking, this in-depth report uses these results to infer vital matters of policy that will need to be assimilated by those individuals and social institutions which help fashion tomorrow’s education paradigm-including graduates and prospective undergraduates. Whether consulted as a source of raw data or read as an influential intervention in the debate over education, this report deserves the widest possible readership.
