Am 25.7.2014 wird in Tuebingen ein innovatives Unternehmensforum zum Thema "Mein Unternehmen in Verantwortung: Von CSR bis Social Entrepreneurship" stattfinden. Immer mehr Unternehmen fragen sich, wie sie ihrer gesellschaftlichen Verantwortung nachkommen können – was sie für das eigene Unternehmen bedeutet, welche verschiedenen Formen es gibt, ob und wie sich das auch rechnen kann, und wie sich das eigene Unternehmen damit auch besonders auszeichnen könnte. Das Weltethos-Institut, das Team für Ethik an der Hochschule Reutlingen und Ashoka, die weltweit führende NGO zur Förderung von Social Entrepreneurship, wollen diese Fragen aufklären und mit Ihnen zusammen für Ihr Unternehmen nach Antworten suchen.

Gemeinsam mit hochkarätigen Expertinnen und Experten aus Wirtschaft, Wissenschaft und Zivilgesellschaft stellen wir zunächst verschiedene Modelle unternehmerischer Verantwortung von CSR über Social Business bis hin zu Social Entrepreneurship vor. Der anschließend moderierte Erfahrungsaustausch schafft den Raum, in Hinblick auf Ihr eigenes Unternehmen nachzudenken. Um den Austausch zu vertiefen, laden wir Sie bereits am Vorabend der Veranstaltung zu einem Networking Dinner im Restaurant Casino in Tübingen ein. Da die Teilnehmerzahl auf 60 Personen begrenzt ist, bitten wir Sie, sich bis 4. Juli 2014 unter folgendem Link anzumelden: http://de.amiando.com/Unternehmensforum.html. Das Programm finden Sie sowohl auf der Website als auch im Anhang an diese Email. Für Fragen steht Ihnen Frau Katharina Hoegl gerne per Email (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Goetz Werner is the founder, long-term leader, and now advisory board member of DM, number one in its retail industry segment. He has been selected as a truly international role model when it comes to building a humanistic organization. Wellbeing of the employees for him is more important than the company's return, although this two aspects to not have to be all that contradictory. A case on DM has previously been published in our book on "Humanism in Practice" in our book series with Palgrave. The award ceremony, open to the public and taking place in German, will be held on July 18, 2014, from 6pm onwards at the World Ethos Institue at Tuebingen University. The laudatio will be given by Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Amann, head of the German chapter of the Humanistic Management Network. The evening continues with a presentation of Goetz Werner's business ethics thoughts followed by a podium discussion.

Latin America is today an incubator for business models that primarily aim to generate positive social and / or environmental impact. Highly innovative and creative businesses have emerged in the regiorganizational culture.

This half day conference taking place at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland will examine current trends, show examples and provide ample opportunity for interaction and discussion on how Latin America is doing business as unusual. The conference is jointly organized with the Centro Latinoamericano-Suizo at the University of St. Gallen and follows the annual retreat of the Humanistic Management Network.

In April the Adelaide Group kicked off their interest in Humanistic Management with a workshop exploring Organisations as Social Systems. Four guest speakers talked about human-centric management from 1) the relational view of the firm (Dr Lisa Daniel,  2) a view of the institutionalised legacies that challenge organisational innovations (Prof Patrick Dawson), 3) sustainable people management (Dr Sam Wells), and 4) complex social systems (Prof Ockie Bosch).
The general consensus was that a humanistic management perspective reflects a relational perspective of the firm where people and their interactions are the primary concern of organisations and business (human centric, i.e. people based view - PBV). This contrasts to the entrenched resource based view (RBV) of the firm which places firm resources (and the concomitant demands and challenges associated with accessing and managing them) as the primary concern.

What is the intent of the Humanistic Management Center, why is business ethics a strategic success factor and what does that mean for an organization? No less than these three questions have been posed to answer in a 15 minute time slot at this alumni gathering of the most prestigious département des Hautes Études Commerciales of the University of Geneva.

This short talk began with highlighting the mission and vision of the Humanistic Management Center before providing a brief overview of our three-stepped approach to humanistic management and our activities in our three work streams. The second part of the talk was then centered on the relationship between purpose and legitimacy of a business, passion and integrity of its members and empathy as one of the main drivers great organizations constantly strive to cultivate in their organizational culture.

We are editing a new book on Human Centered Executive Education.

The speed of change in business and other organizations' environment and the urgency to address the challenges we face as a global community accelerate the need to transform the industrial prototype into a human centered paradigm in organizations and societies. In executive education this implies a need for change in both, program content and delivery. We consequently see a pertinent need for answering three main questions with regard to Executive Education programs around the world today.

While organizations have become central for thinking and structuring contemporary social action, existing perspectives on what they are and how to deal with them are still rooted in modern ideas about the foundations of society. The chapters in this volume take critical narrative inquiry — inspired by postmodern or post-human approaches to organizations — as a broad range of research and development strategies that challenge the dominant perspectives prevalent in the organizational literature.
