In nahezu jedem größeren Unternehmen wurden in den letzten Jahren strategische Veränderungsprojekte durchgeführt, deren Erfolg jedoch oft ausblieb. Es fehlte die innere Bereitschaft der Mitarbeiter, das Projekt mitzutragen. Dieses "Commitment", d. h. die innere Verpflichtung dem Unternehmen gegenüber, ist jedoch von entscheidender Bedeutung für den Unternehmenserfolg.

Der Begriff "Charisma" wirkt ebenso faszinierend wie rätselhaft. Die alltagssprachliche und wissenschaftliche Attraktivität des Terminus korrespondiert mit einem großen öffentlichen Interesse an rational schwer erklärbaren Mechanismen des sozialen Erfolges einiger scheinbar besonderer Menschen. Auf der Grundlage der Weberschen Charisma-Theorie aktualisiert Malte Lenze den Begriff, um die "charismatischen Dimensionen" gegenwärtiger "Religio-Phänomene" beschreibbar zu machen.

Example text

How practical are these developments of richer consequential accountability information for non-profit programmes and organizations? For non-profit organizations that share the same long-term costeffectiveness objective, say, a group of youth agencies working on a shared youth training objective, decision-makers facing choices among alternative programmes could make these decisions using technical information that is commensurable. For a given budget, which programme offers the best longterm effectiveness score?

Essentially, the Balanced Scorecard is reformulated in constrained optimization terms, where the strategic objective is specified as profit maximization subject to required targets or limits in a series of non-financial areas which do not contribute to but formally constrain the long-term financial objective. An obvious example would be a requirement placed on a public commercial organization to operate a specified service without charging any user price. In this case the shared expectations include targets with respect to the various constraints, the currency of performance includes not only financial results but also specific technical information with respect to the various non-financial constraints, the criteria are defined as financial targets and technical targets for the various constraints, and the means of communication is defined in terms of interim and final reports on the achievement of financial and technical targets.

Chapter 2 deals with methods of analysis. This section deals briefly with the management systems served by these methods. This topic is well served in the literature. 15 The Auditor General of British Columbia proposes an accountability framework that includes the financial and compliance elements of procedural accountability, and a general approach to consequential accountability defined as ‘operational results’, which Accountability 21 actually builds into the traditional concepts of efficiency and effectiveness some of the additional richness of the CCAF/FCVI attributes.
