Paradokser dukker op alle vegne i organisation og ledelse. Du kan opleve dem som spændinger mellem elementer, der på én gang hænger sammen og er modstridende som eksempelvis mellem arbejdet og livet.Bogen er en introduktion til paradoksledelse som en særlig optik på organisation og ledelse. Den er baseret på den voksende paradokslitteratur med nu cirka 700 forskningskilder, og den stiller et centralt spørgsmål til denne litteratur: På hvilken måde skaber ledere og organisationer værdi?Med det udgangspunkt afdækker bogen, hvorfor og hvordan paradoksledelse vinder frem som en jagt på værdiskabelse i vores komplekse samtid. Den identificerer de paradokser, ledere kan forvente at møde i organisationer, samt det repertoire af ledelsestaktikker, de har til rådighed for at håndtere dem.Bogen giver indblik i nøglebegreber som paradokser, taktikker, modsigelser, spændinger og taktiske logikker. Emnet er formidlet i et levende sprog med modeller og forskningsbaserede cases.Jan Heiberg Johansen er idehistoriker fra Aarhus Universitet og har en MBA med udmærkelse fra University of Reading – Henley Business School.

Poetry is educative and constructive more importantly when it comes to poetry. This is the collection of poetry aims to ascertain artwork is functional. However, it ought to be understood very vividly poetry entails and inspire reminisces, vigour and energy. Furthermore, poetry also entails emotions to every poetry. Through poetry, it then how each individual is healed before, and after confronted with a turbulent juncture. It is for this pivotal reason, me as an author have thought about great necessity to write poetry. I am of the view artwork will never in limbo. Artwork among other things will never be forgotten. It is an immense opportunity to come on our senses, to value artwork.
This edited volume is an in-depth collation of the usage of different quantitative decision making techniques in practical areas such as lean & green supply chain, reverse logistics, perishable logistics, closed loop supply chain, sustainable project management, retail management, block chain applications, optimal supplier selection problem, demand/supply modelling, forecasting under uncertainties, scheduling & sequencing, resource constraint logistics, dynamic network supply chain, risk evaluation, and so on. Additionally, the book also solves these issues in theoretical and practical context using innovative mathematical tools. Consisting of selected papers from the 23rd Annual International Conference of the Society of Operations Management, this book's highlight is not only the coverage of interesting topics, but also how these topics are dealt with, such that post-graduate students as well as researchers and industry personnel working in areas like engineering, economics, social sciences, management, mathematics, etc., can derive the maximum benefit by reading or referring to this book. Apart from the emphasis on new mathematical, operations research, operations management, and statistical techniques, the authors also ensure that all the concepts are made clear by highlighting their practical significance in different areas of applications of operations management. By using novel presentation methods, the book offers a good practical flavor of all the different topics relevant to operations management in the coming decades.
This book constitutes the proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Decision Support Systems Technologies, ICDSST 2022, held during May 23-25, 2022.The EWG-DSS series of International Conference on Decision Support System Technology (ICDSST) is planned to consolidate the tradition of annual events organized by the EWG-DSS in offering a platform for European and international DSS communities, comprising the academic and industrial sectors, to present state-of-the-art DSS research and developments, to discuss current challenges that surround decision-making processes, to exchange ideas about realistic and innovative solutions, and to co-develop potential business opportunities.The main aim of this year¿s conference is to investigate the role DSS and related technologies can play in mitigating the impact of pandemics and post-crisis recovery. The 15 papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 46 submissions. They were organized in topical sections as follows: decision support addressing modern industry; decision support addressing business and societal needs, and multiple criteria approaches.
This edited book discusses creative and recent developments of fuzzy systems and its real-life applications of multiple criteria decision making. Keeping on the existing fuzzy sets and recent developed fuzzy sets, viz., intuitionistic fuzzy, Pythagorean fuzzy, Fermatean fuzzy, Hesitant fuzzy and multiple criteria decision approaches, this book is committed to probing the soft computing techniques and fuzzy multiple criteria decision making in favour of fuzzy intelligent system and business analytics. It also addresses novel development of fuzzy set theory as well as real-life applications of fuzzy systems. It presents challenging and useful real-world applications based on problems of decision making in various fields. The modelling and solution procedures of such real-world problems will be provided concisely although all topics start with a more developed resolution. The contributory chapters will be based on the vast research experiences of the authors in real-world decision-making problems. This book provides readers with a valuable conspectus of several decision-making problems as a reference for researchers and industrial practitioners in this field. This book will broadly cover recent development of fuzzy systems and its applications of multiple criteria decision making in the areas of management and production, manufacturing management, selections problems, group decision making, transportation and logistics, inventory control systems and interval technique/fuzzy technique (uncertainty) of the above mentioned areas.
This book aims at providing cases with inspiring findings for global researchers in capacity allocation and reservation. Capacity allocation mechanisms are introduced in the book, as well as the measures to build models and the ways to achieve supply chain coordination. In addition, it illustrates the capacity reservation contract and quantity flexible contract with comparisons and some numerical studies. The book is divided into 7 chapters. Chapter 1 introduces the background and the latest development of the research. Chapter 2 introduces how to manage downstream competition through capacity allocation in symmetric market, including proportional mechanism and lexicographic mechanism. Demand competition is introduced in Chapter 3 as well as the uniform allocation mechanism and the comparisons among three different mechanisms. In Chapter 4, we give information about demand competition with fixed factor allocation, and the comparison with other allocations. Chapter 5 provides the optimal strategies under fixed allocation with multiple retailers and the impacts of fixed proportions. Chapter 6 illustrates how to achieve supply chain coordination through capacity reservation contract and its comparison with the quantity flexibility contract, and in Chapter 7 we describe outsourcing decisions and order policies in different systems with some numerical studies. We sincerely hope that this book can provide some useful suggestions and inspirations for scholars around the world who have the same interests in this field.
