  • * L'ouvrage porte sur les outils du Web 2.0 qui sont encore en phase d'appropriation par les organisations.
    * L'approche des auteurs repose sur une veille sur Internet du concept, une revue de littérature académique et plusieurs études de cas.
    * Les résultats apportés sur le plan organisationnel peuvent trouver une opérationnalisation pour les DSI et les managers confrontés à l'utilisation des outils du Web 2.0.

    Le concept de 2.0, marqueur d'une évolution par référence au Web dit 1.0, est également associé à de nombreuses promesses concernant l'évolution des habitudes de travail et l'émergence de nouvelles organisations innovantes.

    Face au constat du manque de données et des problématiques managériales émergentes, les auteurs se sont interrogés sur l'impact du « 2.0 » sur les organisations, de façon à intégrer dans une même conception les dimensions communautaire et de réseaux sociaux émergents, les ressorts et enjeux de gouvernance des organisations et la dimension pilotage et systèmes d'information. Pour faire cette analyse, ils ont effectué une veille sur le Web, une revue de littérature académique et se sont appuyés sur plusieurs cas emblématiques d'entreprises.

    Il en ressort une présentation du « 2.0 » selon quatre points de vue complémentaires : la plateforme, le many-to-many, le communautaire et l'émergent.

    Des idées reçues et de fausses évidences autour de la hiérarchie, de la participation, du communautaire et de l'émergent ont également été revisitées, et quelques enjeux critiques pour le « passage au 2.0 » ont été identifiés : associer one-to-one et many-to-many, mobiliser le collectif, valoriser une organisation « méta-dimensionnelle » et valoriser et protéger l'individu.

    Enfin, pour « piloter le nuage », les auteurs ont révélé combien le système d'information était central et ont émis l'hypothèse que l'enjeu pour les DSI et les managers était de pouvoir progresser dans la maîtrise de quatre leviers : le pilotage multi-dimensionnel et les référentiels enrichis, la gestion des communautés, la gestion de l'organisation, des droits et de la gouvernance de l'information, le pilotage des capacités organisationnelles.

    Cet ouvrage s'adresse à l'ensemble des professionnels (DSI, managers, consultants.) et des universitaires (enseignants chercheurs, étudiants de cycle Master.) qui s'interrogent sur le concept de Web 2.0 et son impact sur les organisations.

  • Les sciences de gestion sont les plus jeunes des sciences humaines. Elles souffrent encore d'un déficit d'image car elles ont eu tendance à se définir par leur champ professionnel ou en empruntant leurs concepts (et leurs crises) à l'économie, à la sociologie ou à la psychologie. Cet ouvrage adopte la perspective inverse : il propose de nouvelles fondations pour les sciences du management. Les spécificités et l'universalité du projet des sciences de gestion sont dégagées au-delà des formes historiques de ces disciplines. Les avancées les plus récentes éclairent désormais un parcours scientifique original et permettent une relecture des sources traditionnelles. Théorie de l'action collective, institutions du management, épistémologie des pratiques et des systèmes de légitimité, validité des concepts, relation à l'action et à la décision, place de l'intervention dans la démarche de recherche : les problèmes fondamentaux sont passés en revue, des solutions sont apportées. Au terme de ce travail, les sciences de gestion disposent d'un coeur théorique spécifique qui leur permet d'occuper une place inédite parmi les sciences sociales.

    Ce livre intéressera directement les doctorants en sciences de gestion et les enseignants-chercheurs. Mais mieux que les livres de management qui promettent le succès, cet ouvrage plongera les managers et les consultants dans ce qui a toujours été l'essence même de leur métier : construire et renouveler collectivement des systèmes d'action efficaces.

  • What are angels? Where were they first encountered? Can we distinguish angels from gods, fairies, ghosts, and aliens? And why do they remain so popular? This Very Short Introduction investigates stories and speculations about angels in religions old and new, in art, literature, film, and the popular imagination.

  • What are angels? Where were they first encountered? Can we distinguish angels from gods, faeries, ghosts, and aliens? And why do they remain so popular?

    In this introduction to the history of angels, David Albert Jones outlines some of the more prominent stories and speculations about angels in Judaism, Islam, Christianity and post-Christian spiritualities. He reflects on the way angels are portrayed in art, whether as young men in the Hebrew Scriptures, androgynous winged creatures of the pre-Raphaelites, or the masculine statue of the Angel of the North. He also considers angels in films such as Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire, and
    Frank Capra's It's a Wonderful Life, as well as angels in literature.

    From the idea of the angel as a messenger, through to the image of angels sent to protect and help those in need, this is an examination of the implications of angels. It asks why people find the idea of them so attractive, helpful or consoling, and why they remain so powerful in modern culture. In this thought-provoking introduction, Jones considers the view that reflecting on angels can teach us something about human existence. Whether or not we believe that they exist in their own right,
    angels can still illuminate our thoughts.

  • In Rational and Irrational Beliefs: Research, Theory, and Clinical Practice, leading scholars, researchers, and practitioners of rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) and other cognitive-behavioral therapies (CBTs) share their perspectives and empirical findings on the nature of rational and irrational beliefs, the role of beliefs as mediators of functional and dysfunctional emotions and behaviors, and clinical approaches to modifying irrational beliefs, enhancing rational beliefs, and adaptive coping in the face of stressful life events. Offering a comprehensive and cohesive approach to understanding REBT/CBT and its central constructs of rational and irrational beliefs, contributors review a steadily accumulating empirical literature indicating that irrational beliefs are associated with a wide range of problems in living and that exposure to rational self-statements can decrease anxiety and other psychological symptoms, and play a valuable role in health promotion and disease prevention. Contributors also identify new frontiers of research and theory, including the link between irrational beliefs and other cognitive processes such as memory, psychophysiological responses, and evolutionary and cultural determinants of rational and irrational beliefs. A truly accessible, state-of-the-science summary of REBT/CBT research and clinical applications, Rational and Irrational Beliefs is an invaluable resource for psychotherapy practitioners of all theoretical orientations, as well as instructors, students, and academic psychologists.

  • This is a new volume of original essays on the metaphysics of quantum mechanics. The essays address questions such as: What fundamental metaphysics is best motivated by quantum mechanics? What is the ontological status of the wave function? What is the nature of the fundamental space (or space-time manifold) of quantum mechanics?

  • The local levels of economies have felt the impact of technological change and globalization. These forces have triggered the need to understand the dynamic mechanisms that enable locales to respond to such changes. For example, the downsizing of traditional employers because of a major loss in market share due to new competitors, acquisition by global firms, or off-shoring of production or services was traditionally thought to be beyond the scope of powers of local policy makers, thinkers, and business leaders. In the world of practice, those concerned about the economic performance of place-city, region or state-are increasingly focused on how to adapt to these trends and leverage their existing resources to respond to these global challenges as a positive opportunity. The Oxford Handbook of Local Competitiveness brings together some of the leading minds in the fields of business, economics, and the social sciences to identify, articulate, and analyze what influences and shapes local competitiveness and what places can do to enhance their economic performance. The contributors to the Handbook provide a body of systematic analyses suggesting that the local context is a critical element of the forces that shape competitiveness. The challenges to generate and sustain economic performance vary across places, and the factors and conditions that either enhance or impede competiveness also are place-specific. Finally, the characteristics and nature of what constitutes success also vary across places. This Handbook is essential reading material for academics in the fields of economics and public policy, as well as business leaders who hope to gain a more in-depth understanding of their field. Informative and intellectually rigorous, The Oxford Handbook of Local Competitiveness is the definitive volume of scholarly analysis regarding the relationship between place and economic competition.

  • This book explores public sector entrepreneurship from an international perspective. It features essays from eminent scholars in the field addressing entrepreneurial public policies from different countries. Public sector entrepreneurship is at the cusp of becoming a watchword in international policy circles. This book is a pioneer volume in this emerging field and provides topics and policies that are broadly applicable across different economies. Public sector entrepreneurship refers to innovative public policy initiatives that generate greater economic prosperity by transforming a status-quo economic environment into one that is more conducive to economic units engaging in creative activities in the face of uncertainty. In today's economy, public sector entrepreneurship affects that transformation primarily by increasing the effectiveness of knowledge networks; that is, by increasing the heterogeneity of experiential ties among economic units and the ability of those same economic units to exploit such diversity.  Through policy initiatives that are characterized by public sector entrepreneurship, there will be more development of new technology and hence more innovation throughout the economy.

  • Technology transfer-the process of sharing and disseminating knowledge, skills, scientific discoveries, production methods, and other innovations among universities, government agencies, private firms, and other institutions-is one of the major challenges of societies operating in the global economy.  This volume offers state-of-the-art insights on the dynamics of technology transfer, emerging from the annual meeting of the Technology Transfer Society in 2011 in Augsburg, Germany.  It showcases theoretical and empirical analyses from participants across the technology transfer spectrum, representing academic, educational, policymaking, and commercial perspectives.  The volume features case studies of industries and institutions in Europe, the United States, and Australasia, explored through a variety of methodological approaches, and providing unique contributions to our understanding of how and why technology transfer is shaped and affected by different institutional settings, with implications for policy and business decision making.

  • Business is a vital institution for a flourishing society, but there is mounting concern about its role in distorting wealth distribution, enabling and rewarding unethical behaviour, and despoiling the natural environment. A Consortium was formed in 2009 under the leadership of David Gautschi to bring together academics, business people, and interested members of society from around the world to discuss two questions: what is the purpose of business, and what is the role of the business school in the academy? Consortium Fellows gathered in eight sessions over five years from 29 countries to discuss, debate, and share perspectives on these questions.

    The Purpose of Business is an edited collection drawing from the perspectives of these sessions, with contributors from North America, South America, Europe, and Asia bringing culturally and intellectually diverse perspectives on these critical questions. This multifaceted work offers an exploration of business in relation to religion, art, neuroscience, geopolitics, energy, and beyond to inspire a better understanding of the role of business in the 21st century interconnected world.

  • A tongue-in-cheek odyssey through the sex capitals of the world. The applause is near-deafening as crowd favourite Tristan Taormino makes her way to the podium to pick up her award. "Oh my God! This is so wonderful," she gushes, all the while trying to hold back tears. "Buttman, you gave me a chance when no one else would, and the next thing I knew I was the subject of a gang-bang, and now this? I just want to thank Mom and Dad."
    Welcome to the world of Sex Carnival - a whimsical, eye-opening record of one man's travels into the bold new world of porn. Bill Brownstein provides a guide for the uninitiated and the bewildered, a hands-on intro for anyone who wonders why the porno biz has become so mainstream in just the last few years.
    Brownstein's global travels take him from watching Tristan and other sex superstars accept their trophies at the annual porn awards ceremony in Las Vegas to witnessing the weekend shopping sprees of Dutch families as the kids push their grocery carts through the biggest sex supermarkets on earth. He takes us from dungeons and dragons pleasure chambers in New York to a different kind of pleasure - the rough trade in Hamburg. And along the way, he stops off to catch some lap-dancing in Montreal and all kinds of unexpected action at the sex bars of Paris. 
    Sex Carnival is no definitive history of porn. Instead, this book is fun. Brownstein gives us a lively account of our obsession with the business of sex, an odyssey of one man's encounters with a universe of titillation that is fresh, original, naughty, and very bizarre.
