This note from Prof. Vargas regarding a competitive title by Prof. Saaty with an almost identical title (THEORY AND APPLICATIONS OF THE ANALYTIC NETWORK PROCESS: Decision Making with Benefits, Opportunities, Costs, and Risks. RWS Publications, 2005): "The other book is theoretical with passing mention of examples to show how the subject is used. In our book (the one you have) the applications are different and given in full detail relevance and originality. They have never appeared in print as they are here and most users would prefer them to the theoretical book. In addition chapter 1 summarizes the theory given in four chapters on the book showing the important parts without going into too much detail. I would rather read this book than the other one definitely and this could not have been done so elegantly had not the other been written before. Therefore this book has the cream of the ideas and the best published applications so far."

Diana Mitsch zeigt in diesem Buch, dass Hersteller von Medizinprodukten beim Produktdesign über ökonomische Kriterien hinaus auch ökologische und gesellschaftliche Ansprüche berücksichtigen müssen: Produkte müssen folglich nicht nur den Erwartungen von Kunden bzw. Anwendern und generellen sowie branchenspezifischen gesetzlichen Vorgaben entsprechen, sondern sollen insbesondere auch einem komplexen Geflecht nachhaltigkeitsrelevanter Anforderungen Rechnung tragen, ohne dabei zumindest einen langfristig positiven ökonomischen Beitrags zu leisten. Im Mittelpunkt dieser Arbeit steht die Entwicklung eines Modells zur Förderung des Designs nachhaltiger Produkte.

The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) has been one of the foremost mathematical methods for decision making with multiple criteria and has been widely studied in the operations research literature as well as applied to solve countless real-world problems. This book is meant to introduce and strengthen the readers’ knowledge of the AHP, no matter how familiar they may be with the topic. This book provides a concise, yet self-contained, introduction to the AHP that uses a novel and more pedagogical approach. It begins with an introduction to the principles of the AHP, covering the critical points of the method, as well as some of its applications. Next, the book explores further aspects of the method, including the derivation of the priority vector, the estimation of inconsistency, and the use of AHP for group decisions. Each of these is introduced by relaxing initial assumptions. Furthermore, this booklet covers extensions of AHP, which are typically neglected in elementary expositions of the methods. Such extensions concern different numerical representations of preferences and the interval and fuzzy representations of preferences to account for uncertainty. During the whole exposition, an eye is kept on the most recent developments of the method.

Computer sind mittlerweile so intelligent geworden, dass die nächste industrielle Revolution unmittelbar bevorsteht. Wer profitiert, wer verliert? Antworten auf diese Fragen bietet das neue Buch der Technologie-Profis Erik Brynjolfsson und Andrew McAfee. Seit Jahren arbeiten wir mit Computern - und Computer für uns. Mittlerweile sind die Maschinen so intelligent geworden, dass sie zu Leistungen fähig sind, die vor Kurzem noch undenkbar waren: Sie fahren Auto, sie schreiben eigene Texte - und sie besiegen Großmeister im Schach. Dieser Entwicklungssprung ist nur der Anfang. In ihrem neuen Buch zeigen zwei renommierte Professoren, welch atemberaubende Entwicklungen uns noch bevorstehen: Die zweite industrielle Revolution kommt! Welche Auswirkungen wird das haben? Welche Chancen winken, welche Risiken drohen? Was geschieht dabei mit den Menschen, was mit der Umwelt? Und was werden Gesellschaft und Politik tun, um die Auswirkungen dieser "neuen digitalen Intelligenz" für alle bestmöglich zu gestalten? Dieses Buch nimmt Sie mit auf eine Reise in eine Zukunft, die schon längst begonnen hat.

Gibt es ein Rezept für Verkaufserfolg? Die meisten Führungskräfte im Vertrieb verweisen hier zuerst auf eine gute Kundenbeziehung – und sie liegen falsch damit. Die besten Verkäufer versuchen nicht nur einfach eine gute Beziehung zu ihren Kunden aufzubauen – sie stellen primär die Denkweisen und Überzeugungen ihrer Kunden in Frage. Basierend auf einer umfassenden Studie mit mehreren tausend Vertriebsmitarbeitern in unterschiedlichen Branchen und Ländern, zeigt "The Challenger Sale", dass das klassische vertriebliche Vorgehen mit dem Aufbau von Beziehungen immer weniger funktioniert, je komplexer die Lösungen sind. Doch wie unterscheiden sich Fertigkeiten, Verhaltensweisen, Wissen und Einstellung der Spitzenverkäufer vom Durchschnitt? Die Studie zeigt deutlich, dass die Verhaltensweisen, die den Challenger so erfolgreich machen, replizierbar und strukturiert vermittelbar sind. Die Autoren erklären, wie fast jeder Verkäufer, ausgestattet mit den richtigen Werkzeugen, diesen Ansatz erfolgreich umsetzen kann und so höhere Kundenbindung und letztendlich mehr Wachstum generiert. Das Buch ist eine Quelle der Inspiration und hilft dem Leser, sein Profil als Vertriebler zu analysieren und gezielt zu verändern, um am Ende kreativer und besser zu sein.
