The Science Elevator Pitch as a possible innovative pedagogical tool in the didactics of historical education.
In the field of care management, there have been various new developments in recent years. These include, on the one hand, the consistent focus in care management on the core topic of management competencies and, on the other hand, the focus on digital transformation and the term "Care 4.0". This consistent attitude of the nursing staff in the digi...

For this, the systems approach offers for a long time the right theory and the necessary tools to successfully deal with high dynamics and complexity.

The controversy surrounding Johann Gottlieb Fichte (1762-1814) using the example of the representation of his person and pedagogy in selected encyclopedias of their time.
The term "care with heart" is widely used in the practice of healthcare and nursing. On the one hand he will really seen as a matter of the heart and lived intensively. On the other hand, it is also viewed critically by some. "Strong care" is a term with which I have tried the nursing staff as well as possible and self-confidently to prepare for th...
The term "Pflege 4.0" has now become established in the practice of health care. It describes, following the term "Industrie 4.0", the topic "Digitisation in care" good and to the point. The question is always: "How much digitisation needs nursing?" As a management consultant and keynote speaker I have critically examined the term "Industrie 4.0"...
The term "personnel development" was a much-used term in the 1990s, which never had the meaning in practice as the intensive academic discussion might have suggested. It never came to pass that the then ideal of the Learning Organization (Senge 1990, Rieckmann 1997, Pirker 1998) was able to assert itself across the board. It is therefore all the mo...

In recent years, the author has repeatedly and intensively dealt with the topic of "Effective Learning in Management". The starting point of the in-depth employment was the own dissertation on the topic "management competence" with the question: What is management competence? How and where is the management competence assigned? (Pirker 2017) The r...
I chose this topic because Joseph Alois Schumpeter (1883-1950) has always fascinated me. The fact that we both have the same day (February 8) birthday, there is an additional connection from my side. In my publication "Joseph A. Schumpeter and the study of social science. A Contribution to the Austrian History of Science "(1999) I first dealt with...
The results of the empirical study on management competence are now being implemented in particular in the practice of management education. This applies to various specialist areas, including nursing and care management. There are also new scientific publications that deal both with the eight "elements of management competence" and the questions...
In recent years, the concept of "competence" has developed into an of the most used and popular terms in science, society, economy, pedagogy and in care. The term has a problem, that all fashion terms have in common. It becomes unclear and used blurred, it is used in an inflationary manner and its quality suffers from its popularity. The work show...
Management, management competence and nursing management have arrived as terms in nursing. However, they are often used with little differentiation. Accordingly, an awareness of the importance of management in nursing and, above all, of the necessary management skills must be developed.
Effective learning is becoming increasingly important in our organisations. This is especially true for effective learning in management. On the one hand it is important to keep up with the times and on the other hand not to take part in any nonsense. However, it is much more a matter of understanding management correctly and of making learning in...
Today, effective change management is more up-to-date and important than ever before. The increasing dynamics and complexity in business and society as well as globalization and digitization make effective change management a central element of successful corporate development.
Industry 4.0 is one of the buzzwords of our time. The term is often associated with ambiguity and fear of change as well as the loss of one's own job. However, it is about creating clarity and orientation, as well as actively tackling the future and shaping it yourself. This is best done with a human-oriented approach, with heart, brain and hand as...
Management has become a widely used term. Sometimes it has even become a common term that is used unconsciously and uncritically over and over again. However, it is important to understand management correctly and to develop a corresponding awareness of the importance of management in nursing. This applies in particular to management in nursing and...

The four pedagogical dimensions of management. From management competence to management pedagogy.
Industry 4.0 is one of the buzzwords of our time. The term is often associated with ambiguity and fear of change and the loss of one's own job. However, it is particularly important in the area of care, to create clarity and orientation as well as to actively shape the future and design them yourself. This happens on best with a people-oriented app...
Fichte establishes the close relationship between philosophy and being human. In the eyes of his contemporaries, he was possessed of an insane belief in the creative power of the will. Störig points out at this point that Fichte said about himself that he knew only one need, namely to act and to act beyond himself. This is reflected in his philosop...
