Abstract: There is an extensive discussion in the scientific and professional literature about the relationship between artificial intelligence (AI) and man. One group of scientists believes that creation cannot be more intelligent than the creator himself. In that sense, they do not see any danger in the careless and expansive development of artif...

The topic of this paper is related to the complexity of the concept as regards the sustainability of the sustainable success. The complexity of this concept arises from its ability to balance the resilience and sustainability of an organization in time and in changeable environment. In this regard, a sustainable success implies a continuous busines...

The paper describes and graphically presents a flexible model of adaptive crisis response based on the PDCA cycle. The model has the potential to become the essence of any crisis management plan, as part of risk management. In doing so, the organization is viewed as a complex adaptive system (CAS). The practice of an increasingly complex world conf...

Suočavanje sa sve kompleksnijim okruženjem zahtijeva od menadžmen-ta organizacijama drugačiji načn razmišljanja od uobičajenog. Drugim riječima, u suočavanju sa kompleksnošću, menadžment koji razmišlja na tradicionalan način (u okviru Njutnove paradigme), koji se karakteriše anali-zom i predvidivošću, gubi rat na srednji i duži rok. Osnovni razlog...

Dealing with an increasingly complex environment requires from the management of the organizations to think differently than usual. In other words, in dealing with complexity, management that thinks in the traditional way (within Newton's paradigm), which is characterized by analysis and predictability, loses the war in the long term. The main reas...

Data from practice and literature show that TQM (Total Quality Management) as, for now, the latest phase of development of quality management has many problems in practical application. Although the reasons for this are different in type and importance, most theorists in this field believe that the lack of commitment and ignorance of management are...

Abstract: In the paper "From quality management to quality of management", we started from the effectiveness and efficiency, as well as the opportunities offered by the Quality Management System (QMS)and what is achieved by applying it in organizations. The state of effectiveness and efficiency in the organization, in most cases, is below the capab...

In the theory and practice of quality management, the importance of elimination of variations from the processes is emphasized. The consequence of this approach is, in general, the intuitive equalization of efficiency of the process and control quality costs. The second law of thermodynamics (entropy law) shows that variations are inherent in all p...

Abstract: Depending on the essence of the cause and consequence relation, management may face with four sorts of context, which are: simple, complicated, complex and chaotic. That means that the management has to be capable always to recognize the actual context and to respond in accordance to that recognition. In that sense, there is a need of obs...

Practice shows that problems in business operations of an enterprise are solved, first of all, by dismissing employees. This behaviour of employers has a negative impact on people's lives, especially in emotional and financial terms. The public is sharply divided on these issues.

Question
There are 10 planetary boundaries, some of which have already been breached. It is the climate change, the rate of loss of biological diversity, nitrogen cycle, weakening of the ozone layer, ocean acidity, lack of drinking water, intensive use of soil, growth of aerosols in the atmosphere, chemical pollution.
Can science and technology save the world?
Question
''While some organizations generally try to avoid growing organizational complexity by focusing on single business segments or customers, others attempt permanent adjustment and incorporate environmental complexity. As a result, the latter has to cope with high levels of organizational complexity. Apparently organizations can suffer from too much complexity, which leads to a decrease in profits, reduced organizational flexibility and dissipating energy. Organizations that are too inflexible due to their simplicity, however, might not be able to meet the changing requirements of the market''- Dipl.- Ing. Alexander Schwandt, Technical University of Berlin.
Question
Through the description of Mammon in Paradise Lost, Milton gives a description of our entire civilization:
‘’Even in the heavens, his views and thoughts
they always aimed downward,
and he admired the wealth of the heavenly soil, the trodden gold
more than anything divine or holy in the beatific display.
Starting from him and at his persuasion,
people also excavate the center,
and with ungodly hands they make a rob
over the womb of his mother Earth
in search of hidden treasure.’’
Also, according to Goethe's Faust, the leading spirit of modern science is the satanic demon Mephisto.
Should we take seriously the idea that our civilization that worships power and money is ruled by the spirit of Mephisto?
Question
Respected colleague,
This question does not seek answers in the sense that both competence and loyalty are important.
For example: imagine you own a company and have two candidates for CEO. One is competent, but you know he / she is not loyal. You trust others, but you know that he / she is not competent.
If you had to decide between them, which one would you choose?
Question
Knowledge has no limits. What we can find out is just a drop in the ocean of what it really is. Since it is not really possible to know everything, would you still like to know absolutely everything about everything?
Question
Machines cannot interpret new information that does not fit into the existing context. Creating new contexts requires imagination that robots do not yet have. Although robots are constantly improving and can do a lot, they will hardly ever have the opportunity to develop the ability to think real. Robots are still unaware. Because of all this uncertainty, the question arises as to whether self-organization is the only secure future that artificial intelligence has?
Question
Science: Some research of spiritual intelligence indicates that in the frontal part of human brain (just behind the temples),maybe, there is a so-called God's point.
Science-V.V. Egorov: I personally am not ready to believe in the existence of Higgs boson, but, contrary, I am ready to believe in the existence of God.
Science-V.V. Egorov: ... In the sleeping brain, the concentration of dozy-chaos radiation must be much less than that is present in the waking brain. During sleep, the electromagnetic dozy-chaos radiation can not leave the brain into the outer space, because otherwise, in order to wake up, it would always require some external source of this radiation. There is obviously no such source in nature. Consequently, when we fall asleep, the dozy-chaos radiation largely moves from the brain to other parts of the body, and when we wake up, it returns to the brain. It is such a periodic motion of weak dozy-chaos radiation, which is of an electromagnetic nature, throughout the body during the day and night, from the brain and back, provides an effective rest and work of the brain. This is the physical nature of sleep.
Religion: The Spirit, or God in us, includes conscience, intuition, and fellowship.
Does proving the existence of a dozy chaos in our brain lead to proving the existence of God in ourselves?
