Uniting Diverse Organizations

Networks are made up of organizations. Often a central unit, or "Network Administrative Organization" (NAO), manages an entire network of organizations that collaborate to achieve an overall network-level goal. Goal-directed networks are those that come together to achieve a shared objective, in addition to the individual organization-specific goals. This book’s focus is on the management of goal-directed networks. Despite the fact that formalized goal-directed interorganizational networks have become extremely popular in the public and nonprofit sectors, as many social problems require concerted action, publications on managing goal-directed networks do not exist. In this book, author Angel Saz-Carranza examines four networks that differ by size, scope, and geographical location. He offers a novel and innovative framework focusing on networks’ inherent internal tensions between unity and diversity, paralleling the differentiation/integration tension found in organization theory, which has not previously been applied to interorganizational networks.

Learning at the Crossroads of Theory and Practice

Core concepts in education are changing. For example, professional performance or expertise is not uniquely the fruit of specialist knowledge acquired at professional schools, but the sum of influences exerted by a complex web of continuous learning opportunities for which an individual is well (or ill) prepared by their schools and their workplace. The key contributory factors to professional expertise are how professional schools connect to professional practice, how schools prepare graduates for continuous learning, and how the workplace endorses continuous development. Thus, the question this volume addresses—how to design learning and working environments that facilitate the integration of these three elements—is at the heart of contemporary pedagogical theory. The authors also ask a second vital question: how do we educate learners that go on to maximize their life’s learning opportunities by regulating their own ongoing learning? Learning at the Crossroads of Theory and Practice argues that with the theory of learning at a crossroads, this is an unprecedented opportunity for learning about learning. The book sheds light on different elements of this challenge: integrating theory and practice in business education, generating and fully exploiting workplace learning opportunities, and enriching our classrooms by coupling theoretical knowledge with the richness of real-life experience.

Der Umgang mit »Differenz« ist ein Kernelement des Städtischen: Der oder die 'Andere' am Rande der Gesellschaft stellt das gewohnte Denken in Frage. Dieses Buch begreift die Herausbildung von migrantischen Ökonomien in den Städten als einen Kristallisationspunkt von Urbanität. Die Beiträge zeigen, dass viele der migrantischen Unternehmerinnen und Unternehmer bislang nur am Rande der Stadtgesellschaft, am Rande der eigenen Belastbarkeit, am Rande der Stadtentwicklung wahrgenommen werden. Die empirischen Analysen fokussieren erstmals auch nicht-europäische Migrantinnen und Migranten in verschiedenen Städten und thematisieren deren zentrale Position für die Stadtentwicklung insgesamt.
