Anthology from the year 2018 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW), language: English, abstract: Shared Service Centers have become a common instrument for providing internal services to a range of business units from a central location. By choosing a suitable international location, companies can not only achieve synergies from centralization, process and quality improvements, but also location economies. Southeast Asia hosts one of the largest numbers of Shared Service Centers in the world and Malaysia and Singapore are seen as prime locations. This volume presents insights from a study tour to Malaysia and Singapore that identified good practices for managing Shared Service Centers from six major corporations. Key aspects of managing Shared Service Centers are addressed and complemented by recent trends such as robotic process automation (RPA) and the shift to more knowledge-intensive services in Global Business Services (GBS) organizations.

´´Wenn man in unseren Schulen mehr tanzen würde, dann sehe es dort anders aus.´´ (Briefzitat eines Leitenden Schulpsychologen aus Baden Württemberg an den Autor) Die vorliegende preisgekrönte wissenschaftliche Arbeit beschreitet neue Wege in der Bewältigung von Stressbelastungen im System Schule. Es geht vor allem um die erstmals gelungene wissenschaftlich fundierte Einführung der körperorientierten Methoden des Yoga und Biodanza direkt in den stark belasteten Schulkontext. Durch die englische, spanische und italienische Zusammenfassung am Ende des Buches wird dessen Inhalt auch einem ausgedehntem Leserkreis zugänglich, die dieses innovative Werk somit ebenfalls für ihre eigene Arbeit mit Biodanza und Yoga z. B. in Institutionen nutzen können. Die Arbeit wurde in einem 8-jährigen Forschungsprojekt an der Universität Leipzig angefertigt und dort auch als Habilitation erfolgreich verteidigt. Die damit erreichte wissenschaftlich fundierte Qualitätssicherung ist eine wichtige Voraussetzung für die Anerkennung dieser neuen körperorientierten Interventionsmethoden in der Praxis. Dazu möchte dieses Buch beitragen. The present award-winning empirical research work provides new ways (Yoga and Biodanza) in the stress reduction for teachers. By the English, Spanish and Italian summary on the end of the book, the contents are also available for a wide readership that can use it for their own work with Yoga and Biodanza in institutions (e.g. schools, health insurances). The empirical founded control of quality by the scientific investigation is an important precondition for the acceptance of the new body-oriented methods of Yoga and Biodanza into the praxis. This book would like to contribute on it.

This book makes a highly innovative contribution to overcoming the stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness - still the heaviest burden both for those afflicted and those caring for them. The scene is set by the presentation of different fundamental perspectives on the problem of stigma and discrimination by researchers, consumers, families, and human rights experts. Current knowledge and practice used in reducing stigma are then described, with information on the programmes adopted across the world and their utility, feasibility, and effectiveness. The core of the volume comprises descriptions of new approaches and innovative programmes specifically designed to overcome stigma and discrimination. In the closing part of the book, the editors - all respected experts in the field - summarize some of the most important evidence- and experience-based recommendations for future action to successfully rewrite the long and burdensome story of mental illness stigma and discrimination.
