Product Description
Much of the hoopla surrounding quality circles, teams, and high-performance work systems has been based on anecdotes and very thin evidence. It has not been established that those employee involvement strategies amount to anything more than another series of management fads or ruses designed to get more out of workers without giving them anything in return. This revelatory book, written by some of the skeptics, lays some of the suspicion to rest.Based on their visits to 44 plants and surveys of more than 4,000 employees, Eileen Appelbaum, Thomas Bailey, Peter Berg, and Arne L. Kalleberg concluded that companies are indeed more successful when managers share knowledge and power with workers and when workers assume increased responsibility and discretion.The study of steel, apparel, and medical electronics and imaging plants revealed much. In self-directed teams, workers were able to eliminate bottlenecks and coordinate the work process. In task forces created to improve quality, they communicated with individuals outside their own work groups and were able to solve problems. Expensive equipment in steel mills operated with fewer interruptions, turnaround and labor costs were cut in apparel factories, and costly inventories of components and medical equipment were reduced.And what did the employees think? The worker survey showed that jobs in participatory work systems often provide more challenging tasks and more opportunities for creativity. Employees in apparel had higher hourly earnings; those in steel had both higher hourly earnings and higher job satisfaction. Workers in more participatory settings were no more likely than others to report heavy workloads or excessive demands on their time. They were, however, less likely to report involuntary overtime or conflict with co-workers, and were more likely to be satisfied with their surroundings. Manufacturing Advantage provides the best assessment available of the effectiveness of high-performance work systems. Freestanding chapters near the end of the book provide full documentation of research data without interrupting the narrative flow.

Arne: Artaxerxes
Amazon.com
Artaxerxes is a strange work. It was composed by Englishman Thomas Arne, who was a generation younger than his great operatic rival, Handel. Arne is best known for the tune "Rule Britannia," from the "masque" Alfred. He composed Artaxerxes from an Italian libretto that Arne himself had translated into English. It's chock full of shortish arias in stilted English, but there are tunes galore; Arne had an ear for the punchy musical statement, and this performance is a delight. Patricia Spence in the pants role of Arbaces brings a warm, vibrant tone to her music; as her (his) beloved, Mandane, soprano Catherine Bott almost walks away with the show. Her final aria, "The Soldier Tir'd"--with its insanely complicated vocal line, octave leaps, and breath-defying runs--is a knockout. Ian Partridge and Christopher Robson are also excellent, and Roy Goodman leads with great energy. This is a rarity--and probably will remain one--but it has a lot to offer. --Robert Levine

Jörg Peter: „Arne hat die Voraussetzungen, meinen Rekord zu verbessern“ - Leichtathletik

| Interview Jörg Peter: „Arne hat die Voraussetzungen, meinen Rekord zu verbessern“ Helmut Winter. Jörg Peter hält seit gut 27 Jahren den deutschen Marathon-Rekord. Der Dresdener, der am Freitag seinen 60. Geburtstag feiert, lief 1988 in Tokio (Japan) die Zeit von 2:08:47 Stunden. Beim Frankfurt-Marathon am Sonntag (25. Oktober) wird nun Arne Gabius versuchen, diese Zeit zu unterbieten. Im Interview erinnert sich Jörg Peter, der mit seiner Familie eine Recycling-Firma betreibt, an seinen Rekordlauf und gibt eine Einschätzung zum Vorhaben von Arne Gabius. Jörg Peter, wie kam es damals zu Ihrer deutschen Rekordzeit in Tokio. Jörg Peter: Mein Ziel war damals einzig, die Olympianorm für die Spiele in Seoul 1988 zu erreichen. Dort aber verpasste ich mit einer Zeit von 2:11:22 Stunden die Olympianorm um 37 Sekunden. Da es zwischen der DDR und Japan einen Austausch gab, durfte ich in Tokio noch einen Versuch starten. Eigentlich sollte ich mit Michael Heilmann zusammen dort laufen, aber ich wartete am Flughafen vergeblich auf ihn – er war krank und kam nicht, so dass ich alleine nach Tokio flog. Das Tempo der Führungsgruppe mit drei der größten Namen im Marathon der 80er Jahre, Juma Ikangaa (Tansania), Abebe Mekonnen (Äthiopien) und Rob de Castella (Australien), war aber ziemlich schnell, es lief auf eine 2:07er-Zeit hinaus. Jörg Peter: Ich bin das Tempo mitgelaufen, war aber nach 20 Kilometern etwas hinter der Spitze auf Position 30. Fünf Kilometer später war die Gruppe deutlich kleiner, und nach 35 Kilometern waren wir nur noch zu viert: Juma Ikangaa, Abebe... Jörg Peter: Ich war nur auf die Norm aus. Nach 35 Kilometern merkte ich, dass es schnell wird und ich fühlte mich gut. Doch zwei Kilometer später bekam ich Seitenstechen und musste die anderen drei ziehen lassen. Ich war mir sicher, dass ich die Norm laufen würde und dachte, das könnte eine 2:09er-Zeit werden. Ich habe die mitlaufende Zeit auf dem Führungsfahrzeug gesehen und bin auch wieder herangekommen. Eingangs der Zielgeraden konnte ich Rob de Castella überspurten, doch die anderen beiden waren zu weit weg. Arne Gabius (LT Haspa Marathon Hamburg) wird versuchen, die Marke am Sonntag beim Frankfurt-Marathon zu unterbieten. Was trauen Sie ihm zu. . Jörg Peter: Ich habe Arne in Hamburg kennen gelernt.
