Readers Top 10

The readers top 10 is a list with the 10 best assessed contributions, assessed by our readers on a 10  point scale according to an advancing average over the past 7 weeks.

1.

Finance 2.0 – Crisis
Superstructures or back to Cooperative Public Services?
Frans van der Reep
We have the chance now to correct the failures of the current system. Frans van der Reep presents some creative viewpoints like the lessons of nuclear reactors and the sorcerer’s apprentice. This brings him to two possible solution scenarios.

2.

The virtual workplace and the company culture
Employee oriented tools to build a corporate web culture
Sylvia van de Bunt-Kokhuis
The first of two parts concerning ‘corporate web culture’, with this article focusing on the employee perspective. With the workplace becoming more and more ‘virtual’, how will communication styles and employee behaviour change?

3.

Moving FORWARD with solution-focused change
A results-oriented and appreciative way of making progress
Coert Visser en Gwenda Schlundt Bodien
The solution-focused approach has helped coaches, trainers, consultants and managers to be more effective in realizing their goals. Moreover, it has often made their work more enjoyable. This article presents a simple, new, and - hopefully - sticky model to describe the solution-focused approach: the FORWARD-model.

4.

A Solution for Avoiding Procrastination
Allison Gamble
A Solution for Avoiding Procrastination

5.

Strategic sourcing; a bridge too far?
Teije Bakker, Matthieu Goede en Gert Teusink
The concept of sourcing is gaining popularity in both organisation and management studies. This article offers a conceptual framework that regards sourcing as a strategic function of a company. Using a handful of real world examples, the authors illustrate how different levels of improvement in the sourcing function can be attained.

6.

The Nature of Organizations
Interview with Arie de Geus
David Creelman
Arie de Geus has received international acclaim as an author. Here, he takes a critical stance in regard to the tendency to think in terms of ' shareholder value'. This mindset often leads to companies treating people like products or skills to be bought for a limited purpose before being disposed of. Other methods of 'governorship' must be found to serve as an alternative to the 'limited liability company'. De Geus outlines the possibilities that he sees.

7.

Designing the head office of a multinational corporation
Pieter Klaas Jagersma
Multinationals are reorganising in response to the changing environment, hoping to capitalize on opportunities for growth. These new business challenges often lead to changing corporate focus and, consequently, a changing role for the headquarters.

8.

Organizational behavior in historical perspective
Part 1: The taming of emotions
Willem Mastenbroek
The current high degree of self-discipline and control looks quite natural and selfunderstood. It definitely is not. Morerover our ways of emotion management show a close relation with patterns of power and dependency. This is another neglected area. How helpful is modern skill-training in its disregard of emotional drives and power differences?
