Business travel has become indispensable to the global economy, not only due to its necessity in the maintaining of corporate networks, but also because of the associated economies that cater to the daily requirements of the business traveller. Underlying these developments are concerns over the environmental impact of increasing air travel, which are likely to generate new challenges for the future of business travel. From a team of international experts comes this analysis of the role, nature and effects of modern business travel. Issues addressed include the relationships between airlines and business travellers, the role of mobility in business, and the opportunities and challenges created by mobile workforces. The study combines theoretical advances with comprehensive analysis, and will provoke debate across the social sciences on the nature, organization and space of work in the twenty-first century.

Business aviation is one of America’s most important yet least understood industries. Most organizations (about 85%) operating business aircraft are small and medium-size enterprises. They include a wide range of organizations: state governments, universities, charitable organizations, and all types of businesses. While the organizations that rely on business aviation are varied, they all have one thing in common: the need for fast, flexible, safe, and secure access to destinations worldwide. Many small U.S. businesses rely on business aviation. They are located in markets where the airlines have reduced or eliminated service, making business aviation an important connection to the rest of the world. Business aviation fosters efficiency and productivity, and is essential in an intensely competitive global marketplace. This textbook, Practical Applications in Business Aviation Management, systematically examines business aviation and provides you with a complete understanding of one of America’s most dynamic industries. In this comprehensive guide to business aviation management, authors James R. Cannon and Franklin D. Richey provide in-depth and useful information on all aspects of managing a corporate aviation program. The book begins with a brief look at the history of business aviation and its important role in the aviation industry. It then moves on to focus on the practical issues facing all corporate aviation programs, such as: Regulatory compliance Administrative issues Aircraft and facility maintenance Finances and budgeting Aircraft selection and acquisition Standard operating procedures International operations Human resource management Training Communication and teambuilding Safety and security And much more The book also includes a foreword by Ed Bolen, the President and CEO of the National Business Aviation Association. It is an essential tool for students and professionals who need comprehensive, accurate, and practical information on managing a corporate aviation program.

The second edition of a bestseller, System Management: Planning, Enterprise Identity, and Deployment demonstrates how to make systems development work for any organization. Updated with new chapters, examples, and figures, it discusses the optimum marriage between specific program planning and a company's generic identity. The author focuses on the management aspects of the functional departments and programs and highlights the areas that must be improved in order to implement outstanding systems capability. The book examines the "what and why" of a process and includes a detailed example of a common process model and discusses how to document one. The author builds the case for a matrix structure in which the enterprise has several programs in the house at any one time, the complex problems these programs must solve, and the need for information from many different knowledge domains. He explores the rationale behind placing a generic process under a central management authority with contributions from all functional departments. The book then covers two sets of program planning strings based on the product entity structure and organizes management techniques for the three fundamental system developments efforts: requirements analysis, synthesis, and verification. It concludes with a discussion of assessment and improvement. Recognizing the three areas involved in the development of any new or updated system—the system under development, the enterprise itself, and the program within the enterprise responsible for the development work—this book examines how all three of these systems should be developed using the principals of system engineering. Clearly identifying the important elements of the enterprise and program information sets that have to be skillfully manipulated, it covers strategies that help organizations already using a systems approach fine tune their systems and give those not using a systems approach the tools to develop systems of their own.

Managen beleuchtet den vielleicht wichtigsten Job, den es gibt. Seine Dynamik, seine Vielfalt, seine Rätsel und wie Manager ihn effektiv und gut beherrschen. Managen ist eine dynamische Tätigkeit, kein statische Wissenschaft. Mintzberg zeigt, dass Manager vielfach als überlegte und systematische Planer idealisiert werden und diesem Anspruch gar nicht gerecht werden können. Er skizziert Management als dynamischen Prozess. Mintzberg gilt als Enfant terrible unter den Managementvordenkern. Eine seiner Thesen: Management und Leadership sind Bestandteile des gleichen Jobs. Manager, die keine Leader sind, sind langweilig. Und Leader, die nicht managen, wissen nichts vom Geschäft. Die Trennung von Management und Leadership ist Unsinn. Mintzberg fordert auf zu einer längst überfälligen Diskussion über modernes Management: Wie kann man managen, wenn verlässliche Daten fehlen. Wie kann man eine Balance herstellen zwischen notwendiger Veränderung und Kontinuität? Wie kann man Dinge durchdenken, wenn die Zeit dazu fehlt? Effektive Manager sind nicht frei von Fehler, aber sie treffen die in der jeweiligen Situation bestmöglichen Entscheidungen.
