Im Wechselspiel von Persistenz und Pfadabhängigkeiten auf der einen Seite sowie technisch, ökonomisch, ökologisch und sozial induzierten Entwicklungsdynamiken auf der anderen Seite verschieben sich die räumlichen Gewichte und führen zu neuen Disparitäten. Die explizit räumlich orientierten Politiken wie Raumentwicklungspolitik, Stadtplanung und regionale Wirtschaftspolitik versuchen diese Prozesse auf nationaler Ebene normativ zu steuern. Der vorliegende Sammelband ist bewusst fachübergreifend angelegt und führt raumentwicklungspolitische, stadtplanerische, verwaltungsökonomische und philosophisch-historische Perspektiven auf den räumlichen Wandel zusammen.

Download Rationalität strategischer Entscheidungsprozesse: Ein by Albrecht Becker PDF

By Albrecht Becker

Während sich die Lehrbuchliteratur zum strategischen administration weitgehend am realitätsfernen Modell des "homo oeconomicus" orientiert, basiert die deskriptive Strategietheorie auf dem Modell der begrenzten Rationalität. In beiden Perspektiven erscheinen reale strategische Entscheidungsprozesse letztendlich als nicht-rational. In diesem Buch wird ein Konzept der Rationalität strategischer Entscheidungsprozesse entwickelt, das zwischen den Klippen der bloß modellhaften Rationalitätskonzeption und dem vollständigen Verlust der Rationalität hindurchsteuert. Zu diesem Zweck wird auf die Theorie der Strukturation und die Erkenntnistheorie des radikalen Konstruktivismus zurückgegriffen. Das Rationalitätskonzept orientiert sich einerseits an den tatsächlichen menschlichen Möglichkeiten, ohne andererseits jedes intentionale Handeln in und von Organisationen als rational zu bezeichnen. Strategische Entscheidungsprozesse stellen sich stets als eine Mischung rationaler und nicht-rationaler Teilprozesse dar. Dabei wird der Frage, wer Aussagen über die Rationalität von strategischen Entscheidungsprozessen trifft, besondere Aufmerksamkeit zuteil.
