Social Network Analysis (SNA) and its Application to Knowledge Management

Workshop

Knowledge Management (KM), which concerns itself with the creation, storage, access and dissemination of intellectual assets, has been a dominant research theme in recent years. This workshop covers an overview of KM practices and strategies. In addition, while people and units in the organization engage in knowledge processing activities, some are more prominent sources of intellectual capital than others in social network, which is addressed in Social Network Analysis (SNA), the process of investigating social network structures. I also introduce the basic concepts and tools of SNA. Lastly, I present my research on examining how an extended set of social network characteristics in information flows of the organization, aligning with knowledge processing activities, is associated with creativity.

A Case Study in Utilizing Tri-Sector Collaboration in a Cost Accounting Service-Learning Project

Case Study / Workshop

According to the Harvard Business Review article entitled Triple Strength Leadership, “Some of the world’s most pressing problems won’t be solved by government, business or non-profits alone. They require cooperation from all three sectors. In order to make this happen, the world needs more „tri-sector leaders.” To maximize students learning while helping them to gain the skill set of working effectively in all three sectors, the students will complete a tri-sector service learning case study that will not only develop the tri-sector skill set of the students, but demonstrate the power of three sectors working together to achieve financial and management goals. This workshop will be a very interactive workshop where the students will use the skills learned in the class to prepare a tri-sector project for a US non-profit organization.

Human Resources Strategy: An International Approach

Workshop

Internationalization is a tricky process and requires a lot of effort from the company. From a strategy point of view, human resources are key and their consideration as company assets and change drivers should be taken into account. However, the Human Resources department is usually the last in being involved in this adventure… how can that be possible?

During 3 hours we will discover basic concepts related to human resources internationalization. Starting with a practical situation, we will work on how human resources are drivers of this challenge and how the company has to be ready to support them. Using practical cases and videos we will debate about the most convenient strategic approach to success.

Global Leadership & Cultural Intelligence

Workshop with students from Saybrook University, USA / IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems, Austria

As the world becomes more interdependent economically, businesses increasingly establish global supply chains and culturally diverse workplaces. Cultural intelligence has now become a critical skill set for managers who lead distributed teams and executives who head global business enterprises. The workshop’s presentation on key issues related to being a cultural intelligent professional creates a dynamic interactive dialogical environment for participants to discern and critically examine a) the core qualities and skills of culturally intelligent global leaders/managers, and b) how they can practically develop culturally intelligent workplace dynamics and collaborative organizational systems. Note: Both students and Master Day session instructors are invited and encouraged to participate in this innovative dialogue.

How to Determine How Much a Customer is Willing to Pay: An Introduction to Experimental Auctions

Lecture

How much more will people pay for chocolate made from fair trade coco beans? What if the chocolate is organic? How much more will they pay if it’s both? When visiting a winery, what kinds of information shared about the wine will lead to customers being willing to pay more for that wine?

Marketers are interested in determining the monetary value customers place on products. This session will introduce students to a market research technique called experimental auctions. Unlike questionnaires that ask people how much they would be willing to pay for an item, experimental auctions are “non-hypothetical” and involve subjects exchanging real money for real goods. Come learn more about this interesting method of determining consumers’ willingness to pay for goods. We’ll actually have some fun by conducting a real experimental auction or two.

Leadership in Human Resource Challenges: Talent Management

Workshop

The people companies employ are their most important asset and are the basic competitive differentiator. Most firms around the world spend about 40-50% on employee costs. Successful firms have strategic priorities designed to attract, acquire, engage, develop, and retain the talent necessary to attain goals. Increased complexity and uncertainty in the environment, result in frequent changes in business strategies and the talent demand. To manage talent profitably, the firm must predict the demand for talent and decide if they will “buy” or “make” the necessary talent to meet their demand. This seminar will examine the underlying theory of talent, human capital, the labor market, returns on talent management investments, and how to manage an internal labor market to match talent to jobs.

How Sanctions Programs Can Wreck A Business Plan

Workshop

The U.S. currently operates over twenty economic sanctions programs against foreign countries and various terrorist or other criminal groups. Where the U.S. has no direct authority over a central business transaction involving a target, it is increasingly aggressive in cutting off crucial financial or other necessary services, such as transportation or insurance. This workshop will include case studies of the surprising ways that U.S. sanctions programs can impose serious penalties on potentially unsuspecting service providers.

Cryptocurrency adoption and e-commerce growth, how safe is to stay still?

Lecture

Descentralized virtual currencies (DVC) have been widely adopted. People speculate on the currency value and use it as another investment option without fully understand it. Although there are economic fundamentals that sustain the value of DVC based on the growth of e-commerce, arguments that support the adoption of DVC focus on the chance of gain (speculation) rather than on the risk of loss. In this lecture, you will learn about how DVC could decrease operational risks for companies.

Nachhaltigkeitstag für ganz Krems

This event will be conducted in German

Die globalen Entwicklungen der letzten Jahrzehnte und die daraus entstandenen Folgen fordern von Gesellschaft, Wirtschaft und Politik kontinuierlich neue Lösungs- und Handlungsansätze für eine zukünftige nachhaltige Entwicklung. Nachhaltigkeit bedeutet in diesem Kontext, nicht nur auf ökologischer, sondern auch auf ökonomischer und sozialer Ebene zu denken und handeln. Die drei Ebenen können dabei auch im Konflikt miteinander stehen, wenn beispielsweise die sozial und wirtschaftlich nachhaltige Entwicklung zu Lasten der Umwelt stattfindet oder wenn das Überleben eines Betriebes nur durch soziale Einsparungen möglich ist. Nachhaltiges Handeln ist also ein Balanceakt, den es in unterschiedlichsten Bereichen zu bewältigen gilt.

Bereits zum dritten Mal in Folge findet daher der Nachhaltigkeitstag der IMC FH Krems am 23.03.2018 in der Gozzoburg von 14 bis 18 Uhr im Rahmen der Business Week zum Thema „Responsibility & Impact“ statt. Ziel der Veranstaltung ist es, das Nachhaltigkeitsbewusstsein der Teilnehmer*innen im eigenen Handlungsumfeld und Alltag zu stärken und für relevante Themengebiete zu sensibilisieren.
