Modules:
Creativity in Projects and Organizations Coordinators: José Ramon Otegi Olaso (Bilbao), Michael Littman (Buffalo), Sabine Hotho (Dundee) Creativity is probably the most important competence of the human being. No project and no organization can be managed without creativity and creative problem solving. In this module we want to focus on visual thinking and on tools and techniques that support creativity and creative problem solving in projects and organizations. We will discuss how we can stimulate creativity and creative problem solving. Planned contributions – preliminary list

The definitions of competencies in other areas (human resource management, higher education, … ) are developed in parallel.
Harmonization of concepts for competencies is an important issue for the future – in higher education and in many fields of management. In this module we will discuss concepts and perspectives. This module will consist of several sessions : 1. On competencies in higher education – organized by Peter and Sylvie Reusch, José Ramon Otegi Olaso and Nikolai Beljatski 2. On competencies in projects and organizations – organized by Peter Reusch and Inesa Vorontchuk 3. On competencies in public administration – organized by Peter Reusch and students and graduates of the MBA Business Administration for New Public Management – in German
Intercultural Competencies Coordinators: Henri de Jongste, Werner Müller-Pelzer
Research in multi-cultural communication and intercultural competencies has a long tradition in the Faculty of Business Administration at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Dortmund. This research is linked to the study programmes in International Business implemented about 20 years ago and is linked to the partners in the International Business programmes. In this module we want to focus on Intercultural Competencies and look forward to discussions with colleagues from partners and further universities. Edgar Bellow: European Identity: Does Europe exist? – presentation an Saturday at 15:30 Werner Müller-Pelzer: Intercultural competence for Europeans? Some observations on European identity – presentation on Saturday at 15:55 Henri de Jongste: What Matsumoto’s model shows us – Insight into Human Nature, Culture, Context and Personality – presentation on Saturday at 16:20 Peter Reusch, Alina Mariana Zlatescu, Artur Mukhametshin, Sergio Vasquez Kaufmann: The Impact of Culture on Creativity – presentation on Friday before lunch Social Responsibility Coordinator: Sigrid Michel, Peter Reusch Social responsibility is more and more important in projects and organizations. ISO 26000 offers a Guidance on Social Responsibility recently developed by the International Standards Organization. Social responsibility will reshape the map of standards – and will play a fundamental role like quality management. Social responsibility is important to manage the financial crisis. In this module the role of social responsibility in projects and organizations will be discussed – with one focus on a redesign of management processes to include perspectives of social responsibility.
