About the authors

Lorenz S. Forchhammer and Walter G. Straub 
Both authors have been successful corporate and project consultants for decades and have worked with the leaders of SMEs, broadcasting directors and the managing boards of DAX companies. There are hardly any hurdles or pitfalls to successful change that they haven't come up against. Benefit from their experience and their talent for writing clearly.

Reviews

Mehr braucht man nicht *****
Gut das dieses Werk Verbreitung findet. Jahrzehnte Erfahrung der Autoren spiegelt sich wider in umfassenden Hinweisen für erfolgreich gestalteten Wandel. Da wo Forchhammer und Straub auf drei Seiten einen Zusammenhang vermitteln brauchen andere Bücher hundert Seiten. Locker geschrieben, Zitatfähig und ehrlich. Auch für Erfahrene eine bereichernde Sammlung anwendbarer Formate. 
(03.09.2013 von Bernhard Pelzer )

 

Lesenswert und praxisnah ****
Den Autoren gelingt es sowohl einen umfassenden Überblick zu geben als auch praxisnahe Erfahrungen zu vermitteln was Veränderungen bedeuten und wie man mit ihnen konstruktiv umgehen kann bzw. sollte. Ingesamt sehr empfehlenswert, vor allem da es ihnen gelingt, die Themen im Kontext zu halten, so daß sich ein stimmiges Gesamtbild ergibt. Zum Sichern des Themas am Schluß noch ein Kapitel aus der "Kopfstand-Perspektive", sehr gelungen.Einziger Kritikpunkt: Einzelne Grafiken (Seite 170, Seite 130,...) sind schwer zu erkennen, das Layout ist mir ein wenig zu verspielt.

Entscheiden in komplexen Situationen: Nachhaltige Lösungen für komplexe unternehmerische Probleme - Decision-making in complex situations: Lasting solutions for complex corporate problems

By Lorenz S. Forchhammer, Elke Lorenz, Marco Stoll

This book offers a range of instructions and methods for managing decision-making processes with sustainable results. "Entscheiden in komplexen Situationen" ("Decision-making in complex situations") is a route planner, a catalogue of methodology and an informed handbook for anyone who needs to master complex situations as a leader or consultant.

It illustrates how hasty reactions satisfy people's desire for simple solutions — but usually end up going down the drain. Good decisions, by contrast, take into account a realistic picture of the complexity of the issue and the social environment, and are the result of a clear process that still works when placed under stress.

This book provides a clear explanation of the logical and psychological considerations at the heart of target-orientated and sustainable decisions. It contains comprehensible instructions on how to successfully structure complex decision-making processes and implement them skilfully and methodically.

About the authors

Lorenz S. Forchhammer, ComTeam AG partner
Born in 1957, trained in social sciences with a focus on systemic consultancy and project methodology. I now work mainly as a project consultant, coach and leadership trainer, guided by the experience that the first thing is not always the best thing.

Elke Lorenz, Trainer and Consultant, ComTeam AG partner
At ComTeam since 1988. Studied in Berlin, additional qualifications in gestalt therapy, hypnotherapy and systemic family therapy in Germany and in the USA. Own consultancy practice (HPG) in Berlin for 15 years, many years of experience as a trainer for various organisations/companies and as a coach. From my experience of working with people, I feel that it is particularly important to help people overcome the "limits in their mind", as this can produce new opportunities for taking action. That is the central lesson of my life so far, and I believe that it is important to support this through enjoyment, humour and respect.

Marco Stoll, Director of ComTeam Academy & Consulting GmbH, ComTeam AG partner
Born in 1959 in Winterthur, Switzerland. Basic commercial training, studied business in Zurich, worked abroad in the USA and then 14 years in various line management, directorship and other leadership roles at a global enterprise. I have been a consultant and trainer in systemic process management, conflict management and mediation since 1999, and Director of ComTeam Academy & Consulting GmbH in Switzerland and a partner of ComTeam AG in Gmund, Germany since 2006. Close collaboration with people from different continents has formed the way I deal with cultural and personal differences and changes.

Toprezensionen auf Amazon

"Zielsicher entscheiden ist ein Buch, das sich in seiner Praxisnähe und ganzheitlichen Herangehensweise wohltuend von der umfangreichen Literatur zum Thema Entscheidungen unterscheidet..."

"Die Mischung machts: neueste wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse und Erklärungen, anschauliche und glaubhafte Fälle..."

"Zwei Dinge gefallen mir ganz besonders: zum einen ist das Buch sehr umsetzungsorientiert, zum anderen ist es die ganzheitliche Sicht auf das Thema Entscheidungsfindung. ..."

Spontan Sein: Improvisation als Lebenskunst - Being spontaneous: Improvisation as a way of life

Human beings are spontaneous.
Spontaneity is part of what we are. But we avoid spontaneity wherever we can in our regimented everyday lives, and this means that many people need to re-learn the need for spontaneity. The founder of the fastfood theater and the first improv school in Germany, Andreas Wolf, explains what makes us want spontaneity but then stand in its way. Using simple exercises, he shows how you can (re)discover spontaneity.

Embark on a journey to uncover your forgotten potential. Surprise yourself...

Statutory right of revocation

Revocation policy

a) Right of revocation: You can revoke your declaration of agreement within 14 days, without giving a reason, in writing (e.g. letter, fax, email) or – if the item is delivered to you before the deadline has expired – by returning the item. The deadline begins after receipt of this instruction in writing, but not before the items are received by the recipient and not before the completion of our information obligations pursuant to Article 246 Section 2 in conjunction with Section 1 paras. 1 and 2 of the EGBGB (German Introductory Act to the Civil Code), in addition to our obligations pursuant to Section 312e para. 1 sentence 1 of the BGB (German Civil Code) in conjunction with Article 246 Section 3 of the EGBGB. The punctual submission of the revocation or item is sufficient to deem the revocation period as observed.

Revocations by letter must be addressed to: ComTeam AG, Kurstraße 2–8, 83703 Gmund, Germany Or by fax: ComTeam AG, +49 (0)8022 9666 96 (€0.14/min from a landline, up to €0.42/min from mobiles). Or by email: de.office@comteamgroup.com.

b) Consequences of the revocation: In the event of a valid revocation, the services received by both parties must be returned and, if necessary, any benefits obtained (e.g. interest) must be returned. If you cannot return the received goods, in full or in part, or can only return them in a deteriorated state, you must supply us with compensation for the lost value where applicable. When items are relinquished, this is not applicable if the deterioration of the item is exclusively attributable to the inspection of the item — for example, if it could have happened in the retail store. Furthermore, you can avoid the obligation to provide compensation for lost value due to deterioration caused by intended use by not utilising the goods as your property and by avoiding any activities that may detract from their value.

Goods that can be sent by parcel shipment are returned at our risk. You must bear the costs of the return if the delivered goods match those ordered and if the price of the item to be returned does not exceed the amount of 40 euros, or, if the price of the item does exceed this value, you have not yet provided the return service or a contractually agreed down payment. In all other cases, return is free of charge for you. Obligations to refund payments must be fulfilled within 30 days. For you, the deadline begins upon submission of your notice of revocation or of the items; for us, the deadline begins upon our receipt of your notice of revocation or of the item.

End of revocation policy.
