The invention of laparoscopic urological techniques in the early 1990s was met with scepticism by urologists who demanded that the methods prove themselves when compared to established 'open' surgical procedures. However, the techniques were quickly shown as successful, and over time have gained acceptance through reproducible and durable outcomes. In this well-illustrated surgical text, an international team of urologic surgeons specializing in uro-oncology share the experience gained in effective and reproducible teaching techniques in the field, and present the pioneering knowledge that will enable others to learn more about this important, ground-breaking procedure.

It is generally accepted that information and communication technology has the potential to support high quality, high-tech medicine, but up to now healthcare has lagged behind other sectors, such as service industries, in the implementation of such technology. Medicine is now beginning to catch up, however, and the Austrian government recently agreed on the nationwide implementation of an Electronic Health Record (Elektronische Gesundheitsakte (ELGA))._x000D_ This book presents the proceedings of the 8th scientific eHealth conference, which is being held in Vienna, Austria, in the context of the eHealth Summit Austria, in April 2014. The theme of the conference is "Outcomes Research: The Benefit of Health-IT", addressing the challenges which will inevitably accompany the new opportunities offered by the increased use of ICT in healthcare. The history of technologies making the transition from the laboratory into practice is one of mixed success. It is vital to understand what makes such an implementation a positive one, and factors such as the needs, fears, and context of potential users are as important as a sound technical implementation. Priorities may need to be rethought and new dimensions added._x000D_ The book will be of interest to all those considering the effect of new technologies and eHealth on the provision of healthcare systems, and seeking to achieve services which are both technically and organizationally sound and which will also efficiently deliver noticeable benefits for users.

​The increasing trend towards electric cars leads to several challenges for the automobile industry, research institutes and politics as well as for the society. Research and serial development move closer together to meet automotive standards with new components like traction batteries integrated into hybrid and electrical drivetrains. Furthermore, the influence of e-mobility on the daily mobility behavior, the effects on the automotive supply chain and the impact on industrial production have to be taken into account. According to these complex aspects it is crucial to not only acquire specific knowledge in the particular fields but also to consider their functional interaction. Therefore, it seems essential to merge competence from science, economy and politics. This year, the annual „Conference on Future Automotive Technology“ as the follow-up of the „2. Automobiltechnisches Kolloquium München” focuses on the economical realization of widespread automotive electromobility.

With the rising incidence of urolithiasis, the management of ureteral stones continues to become a larger component of urologic practice. Though almost all urologists deal with ureteral stones, there have been many recent improvements in instrumentation and adjunctive equipment as well as improvements in imaging and the data we can obtain from radiologic imaging in order to guide stone management. Newer topics such as how to limit radiation exposure to both the patient and the urologist, the accuracy and limitations of low-dose computed tomography as well as a review of the most recent studies will be covered in this book. The purpose of this book is to provide a complete updated roadmap to treating ureteral stones, from early management decisions from information found on radiologic studies to adjusting to intra-operative challenges.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2005 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: 1,7, Heilbronn University, 87 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: “If an enterprise does not get the best people at the bottom of its management pyramid then some years down the line it is not go-ing to find them at the top, no matter how much outsourcing it might be doing.” (Chorafas, D. N. (2003), p. 97) This diploma thesis will analyze the outsourcing partnership between Lufthansa Cargo AG (LCAG) and GlobeGround Inc. (GG) at the station Miami/ USA. The paper will represent the current situation, detect sensible subjects and will give recommen-dations to the local- (MIAFH/A) and the regional- (MIAFH) Handling-Management at LCAG in Miami. The main business of an airline is to offer transport services from Airport A to Airport B. The transported object can either be passengers, cargo or mail. In the 1990’s air-lines followed the strategy to integrate more pre- and after-flight related services into their part of the value chain. Enormous pressures lead to changes in strategies. These pressures are mainly caused by the events of 9-11, SARS, the global reces-sion, the Iraqi war, the latest oil-price trend and not to forget the current exchange rate of the US$1 2 . The yield per kg is also decreasing as there are more competitors on the market and even forwarders started to charter own equipment for flying goods around the globe.3 But, even if there are some break points in growth; several studies forecast an annual growth of air cargo of about 6% worldwide during the next years. 4 Outsourcing non-core businesses is one attempt to reduce overhead costs and to versatile the business for being more competitive. It often seems as the easy avail-able medicine to cure suffering businesses. The possible loss of know-how, control and quality of services is often neglected. Steering an outsourcing relationship is therefore one of the main tasks in such a cooperation and require, besides costs and time, also the according knowledge.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Controlling, grade: 2,0, Heilbronn University, 5 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: A very important part of managerial tasks is to measure the performance of their employees. The evaluation is necessary to attain the objectives of the company as possible deficits can be identified and steps can be taken against them (Jobber and Lancaster, 2003: 489). The performance measurement means to discover the strengths and weaknesses of the employees with the aim to improve their performance. The evaluation should also recognize and reward the success of the person evaluated and give him/her a clear feedback about the performance in order to support his/her development (Spiro, Stanton and Rich, 2003: 445). This study will focus on the performance measurement of the sales force, as the success of the sales department is decisive of the company’s overall performance. In order to get motivated and qualified salespeople sales managers must not just analyze statistics but also need to give directions and the possibility of self-development (Spiro, Stanton and Rich, 2003: 441-442). Following, a process of measuring sales force performance will be pointed out which leads the sales manager through the evaluation. Afterwards, the importance of performance measurement within sales management will be shown and a conclusion will be drawn. [...]
