Abstract: Woher kommt es, wenn wirtschaftliche Entscheider unethisch handeln? Liegt es an ihrem Bildungsweg, an ethischen Defiziten in der Managerausbildung oder gar an der Wirtschaftstheorie selbst? Der Beitrag führt die scheinbaren Defizite auf einen Geburtsfehler der wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Diskussion zurück: die von Anfang an zu enge Auslegung der Schriften ihres Gründervaters.

Abstract: Bei der Erklärung von moralischem oder unmoralischem Verhalten von Mitarbeitern und Führungskräften in Organisationen wird nur selten das implementierte Entlohnungssystem einbezogen. Dabei zeigen Forschungsergebnisse, dass die Vergütung maßgeblichen Einfluss auf Einstellungen, Entscheidungen und Verhalten der Angestellten haben kann. Die ökonomische Ausgestaltung des Systems und die psychologischen Prozesse, die zu moralischem Verhalten führen, zeigen sich zum Teil unvereinbar.

Abstract: For many supply chain executives, the Financial Crisis has been one of the toughest challenges in their careers. Firms across industries were required to deal with huge demand-supply mismatches caused by collapsing demand. However, the supply chain community found innovative ways to deal with the challenges of these tough times. Here are five action areas supply chain managers should be aware of—before the next crisis.

Abstract: When business executives and economists think about whether developing an innovation will be worthwhile, they tend to focus on the economic value of the outcome of the innovation process. However, the authors argue, that standard cost-benefit assessment is seriously incomplete when applied to individual innovators. These individuals can gain significant benefits from participation in a development process as well as or even instead of benefits from using or selling the innovation created. When innovation project sponsors can offer volunteer innovators such benefits, the net cost of those innovation projects can be much lower. The authors define innovation process benefits as all those benefits that innovators will get if they directly participate in the innovation development process and will not get if somebody just hands them the solution to an innovation challenge. Important examples of innovation process benefits include enjoyment and learning obtained from participation in the project, as well as reputational gains obtained from being known as having made high-quality contributions. Innovation process benefits are distinct from benefits associated with using or selling the innovation created. They are only available to participants in the development process. Together with other researchers, one of the authors studied the range of motivations experienced by consumer- innovators individuals creating or modifying consumer products to better fit their personal needs. Both a study of Finnish consumer-innovators and a study of consumer-innovators in whitewater kayaking found that motivations for these innovators included not only a desire to use or sell their innovations but also enjoyment and learning gained from the innovation process, as well as a desire to help others. The authors note that designing innovation projects with individual volunteers innovation process benefits in mind can amplify total investment in R&D and innovation in societies by making it attractive for some consumers to devote some fraction of their leisure time to that purpose. The net effect is to make innovation cheaper from the societal perspective and also from the perspective of an innovation project sponsor.

Abstract: When Creative Commons (CC) was founded in 2001, the core Creative Commons licenses were drafted according to United States Copyright Law. Since their first introduction in December 2002, Creative Commons licenses have been enthusiastically adopted by many creators, authors, and other content producers – not only in the United States, but in many other jurisdictions as well. Global interest in the CC licenses prompted a discussion about the need for national versions of the CC licenses. To best address this need, the international license porting project (“Creative Commons International” – formerly known as “International Commons”) was launched in 2003. Creative Commons International works to port the core Creative Commons licenses to different copyright legislations around the world. The porting process includes both linguistically translating the licenses and legally adapting the licenses to a particular jurisdiction such that they are comprehensible in the local jurisdiction and legally enforceable but concurrently retain the same key elements. Since its inception, Creative Commons International has found many supporters all over the world. With Finland, Brazil, and Japan as the first completed jurisdiction projects, experts around the globe have followed their lead and joined the international collaboration with Creative Commons to adapt the licenses to their local copyright. This article aims to present an overview of the international porting process, explain and clarify the international license architecture, its legal and promotional aspects, as well as its most recent challenges.

Abstract: Politische Fertigkeiten von Personen in Organisationen (Ferris, Treadway et al., 2005) sind mit einem an Kontaktaufbau, -pflege und -nutzung orientierten (externalen) Arbeitsstil verbunden, während das Persönlichkeitsmerkmal der Gewissenhaftigkeit mit einem (internalen) Arbeitsstil verbunden ist, der durch Sorgfalt, Umsicht und kontinuierliches Verbesserungsstreben gekennzeichnet ist. In der vorliegenden Studie, an der sich 102 Mitarbeiter-Vorgesetzten-Dyaden beteiligten, wurde der Zusammenhang zwischen den beiden Arbeitsstilen in Bezug auf die Beurteilung des Arbeitsengagements durch Vorgesetzte sowie auf das Bruttojahreseinkommen der jeweiligen Mitarbeiter untersucht. Es zeigte sich wie erwartet, dass die beiden Arbeitsstile sowohl in Bezug auf das durch Vorgesetzte beurteilte Arbeitsengagement als auch in Bezug auf das Bruttojahreseinkommen bedeutsam miteinander interagierten. Jeder der beiden Arbeitsstile führte dann zur positiven Beurteilung des Arbeitsengagements, wenn der jeweils andere Arbeitsstil gering ausgeprägt war. Das Bruttoeinkommen war dagegen wie erwartet dann am höchsten, wenn beide Arbeitsstile stark ausgeprägt waren. Es werden Implikationen, Stärken und Grenzen der Studie sowie zukünftige Forschungsfragen diskutiert.Political skills and working styles: A field study Political skills in organizations (Ferris, Treadway et al., 2005) correspond to an external working style which is characterized by seeking, fostering, and using social contacts at work. Conscientiousness corresponds to an internal working style characterized by deliberation, diligence, and struggling for continuous improvement. In the present study, 102 employee-supervisor dyads participated. The study investigated the effects of the interaction between the internal and external working styles on perceived job dedication by the supervisorsʼ and employeesʼ yearly gross income. The results show that each working style has a positive impact on being assessed as being highly dedicated to oneʼs job by oneʼs supervisor if employees scored high on one working style and low on the other. Income, however, as expected, was highest, when employees scored high on both working styles. Implications, strengths, limitations, and future research are discussed.
