Abstract: The work examines experiences of resort vacationers. For this purpose, it is analyzed how individual impressions, events and behaviors influence the vacation experience. The result of this work is the model of experience creation in resort worlds, which defines the three dimensions (1) type of stimulus, (2) individual, and (3) context, and breaks down each dimension into individual factors. For the dimension type of stimulus, individual stimuli are systematically categorized, for the dimension individual, personas are defined and described, and for the dimension context, archetypes of the relationship between resort and destination are defined.


Anna Scuttari (2019): Cycling and Motorcycling Tourism

Titel: Cycling and Motorcycling Tourism

Year: 2019

Author: Anna Scuttari

Link: https://www.springer.com/de/book/9783030176969

Abstract: This book explores the understanding, description, and measurement of the physical, sensory, social, and emotional features of motorcycle and bicycle journey experiences in tourism. Novel insights are presented from an original case study of these forms of tourism in the Sella Pass, a panoramic road close to the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site. A comprehensive mixed-methods strategy was employed for this research, with concurrent use of quantitative and qualitative methods including documentation and secondary data analysis, mobile video ethnography, and emotion measurement. The aim was to create a holistic knowledge of the features of journey experiences and a new definition of the mobility space as a perceptual space. The book is significant in that it is among the first studies to explore the concept of journey experiences and to develop an interdisciplinary theoretical foundation of mobility spaces. It offers a comprehensive understanding and a benchmarking of the features of motorcycling and cycling journey experiences, a deeper market knowledge on motorcycling and cycling tourists, and a set of tools, techniques, and recommendations for future research on tourist experiences.


Xenia-Isabel Poppe (2018): Crowdworking im Entrepreneurship

Titel: Crowdworking im Entrepreneurship - eine Analyse des Wandels in Unternehmensgründung und Gründungsförderung

Year: 2018

Author: Xenia-Isabel Poppe

Link: https://www.springer.com/de/book/9783658196370

Abstract: Xenia-Isabel Poppe examines for the first time the application of crowdworking in the sense of generating labor from the crowd in the start-up process, combining the perspectives of both company founders and start-up promoters. It shows that founders are increasingly using crowdworking and what opportunities and risks are associated with it. From the analysis of the perspective of the start-up promoters, especially the non-profit start-up promoters, it becomes clear that there is still far-reaching potential to support this approach if they also align their offer with the innovative possibilities of Working 4.0. The author derives directly implementable recommendations for action from her findings for a needs-oriented optimization of the current offering.

Michael Volgger (2017): Umsetzungskompetenz als Erfolgsfaktor in Tourismusdestinationen

Titel: Umsetzungskompetenz als Erfolgsfaktor in Tourismusdestinationen

Year: 2017

Author: Michael Volgger

Link: https://www.springer.com/de/book/9783658155902

Abstract: Based on innovative product developments in European tourism destinations, Michael Volgger explores the question of how the implementation of new ideas can succeed at the network level. In doing so, he develops an understanding of implementation competence as a building block of dynamic competencies. The author argues that successful innovation processes require the integration of intangible and tangible elements into innovation networks. The former provide the possible dynamics, the latter ensure the necessary degree of stability.

Michael Tretter (2016): Standort- und Regionalentwicklung als strategische Aufgabe multinationaler Unternehmen

Titel: Standort- und Regionalentwicklung als strategische Aufgabe multinationaler Unternehmen - Eine unternehmerische Perspektive auf regionale Zusammenhänge

Year: 2016

Author: Michael Tretter

Link: https://www.springer.com/de/book/9783658175771

Abstract: Michael Tretter deals with the area of tension between company, region, location and corporate group and analyzes issues relating to location and regional development from the perspective of a multinational company. He shows approaches with which companies can strategically utilize the location-specific strengths and development potential of the various location regions. This utilization presupposes long-term spatial and social integration in the location regions, so that it makes sense to accompany internationalization strategies with regional location strategies.

Wolf von Holzschuher (2014): Strategisches Ausgründungsmanagement

Titel: Strategisches Ausgründungsmanagement - Umsetzung anhand eines integrierten strategischen Führungsmodells

Year: 2014

Author: Wolf von Holzschuher

Abstract: ​In practice, spin-offs are often seen by management as a suitable instrument for responding to exogenous changes. The focus here is primarily on the possibility of comprehensive cost reductions through the outsourcing of parts of the company. In the context of this book, however, spin-offs are not to be understood as a pure instrument of cost management; rather, two substantial corporate goals can be implemented through long-term oriented spin-off management: the promotion of "entrepreneurship in the company", i.e. entrepreneurial thinking among employees, as well as the creation of an organizational structure through which the implementation of innovations is promoted. The strategic management of targeted spin-off processes represents a major challenge of successful and sustainable corporate management, which executives have to face on a regular basis. This thesis will deal with this problem - it will pursue the question of what the central factors are for a sustainably successful and strategically appropriate implementation of spin-offs and what the integration of spin-offs into the strategic management concept of a company can fail.

Benedict C. Doepfer (2013): Co-Innovation Competence

Titel: Co-Innovation Competence: a Strategic Approach to Entrepreneurship in Regional Innovation Structures.

Year: 2013

Author: Benedict C. Doepfer

Link: https://www.springer.com/de/book/9783658002541

Abstract: ​This work contributes to entrepreneurship research and offers practical implications for entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship promotors by critically analyzing a networked approach to value creation processes of young knowledge-intensive entrepreneurial firms and assessing precise strategies and tactics for entrepreneurial firms to exploit these structures. In this context the concept of co-innovation competence is introduced and empirically analyzed. Results indicate that entrepreneurs follow a specific approach towards networking minimizing transaction costs taking an on-demand-based perspective of networking. In this case entrepreneurs may relate to regional innovation promotors and also reach beyond regional structures to explore suitable partners and exploit structural holes.

Abstract: Multicultural understanding is a key competence for every manager in order to discover the greatest possible potential in employees and thus contribute to the achievement of important corporate goals. In this book, Silvia Schön gives managers a comprehensive and easy-to-understand insight into the basics of cultural research and shows how identity formation works. She offers a broad overview of strategic approaches, applied "cultural diversity management" models, and the scientific research of the last 20 years. In this way, it provides managers not only with ideas for their own daily work, but also with impulses for determining the current diversity climate in their own organization and uncovering deficits.

Elisa Innerhofer investigates innovation processes in the hotel industry by linking concepts of service and innovation theory with resource-oriented approaches of strategic management. She shows which resources and competencies are relevant for innovation and which role they play in the innovation process.

Elisabeth Fischer (2009):Das kompetenzorientierte Management der touristischen Destination

Titel: Das kompetenzorientierte Management der touristischen Destination - Identifikation und Entwicklung kooperativer Kernkompetenzen

Year: 2009

Autor: Elisabeth Fischer

Link: https://www.springer.com/de/book/9783834916051

Abstract: Traditional tourist destinations are under strong competitive pressure. One way to strengthen the competitiveness of these destinations is to focus on core competencies. However, resource- and competence-oriented approaches of strategic management have only been applied to destinations or regional interorganizational value creation systems in a few works so far. Elisabeth Fischer investigates how to identify and develop the cooperative core competencies of the tourism destination. The goal is to make the management of core competencies operationalizable and to broaden the current perspective of strategic management of the destination. From the perspective of the Resource-, Competence-based and Relational View, she describes for the regional value network destination the competence-forming factors, the processes and the regional influencing factors, which are responsible for the emergence of cooperative core competences, as well as the management cycle for their development. In addition, the author develops an analytical framework for the identification of cooperative core competencies, the operationalization of which is empirically tested in a study. Practice-oriented recommendations for the development of competence-oriented competitive advantages in destinations as well as a presentation of the basic requirements for the organization conclude the work.

Anita Zehrer (2007): Evaluating Research Performance in Tourism

Titel: Evaluating Research Performance in Tourism - The Quality of Tourism Journals (Qualitätsmanagement)

Year: 2007

Author: Anita Zehrer

Abstract: In the last few years considerable attention has been paid to research output within the scientific culture, which is disseminated in many different ways. It is commonly believed that scientific output is communicated and largely measured by means of publications, particularly quality is derived from the journal where an article has been published. Plenty of studies have been undertaken to determine the quality of this scientific communication medium. Surveys mainly relied on citation analysis or expert opinion. Publishing in scientific journals is a service offered to a variety of customers with its quality being solely determined by the customer himself. Consumer behaviour theory aims at finding ways and methods for explaining the behaviour of the consumers. Based on the cognitive factors of consumer behaviour (information, learning and perception), a theoretically elaborated four-factor Structural Equation Model is proposed and empirically tested to explain perceived journal quality. The book seeks to provide a greater understanding of journal development and assessment by discussing current issues in evaluating research performance in tourism and by gaining new insights into the quality judgments of hors with regard to scholarly journals. Besides the many ranking studies undertaken so far, the book takes a different perspective by objectively measuring the quality of scientific journals. Although findings are basically consistent with earlier research, the survey is unique in its focus on the behavioural aspects of tourism scientists and in the way of developing a model to assess the perceived quality of journals.

Frieda Raich (2006): Governance räumlicher Wettbewerbseinheiten

Titel: Governance räumlicher Wettbewerbseinheiten - Ein Ansatz für die Tourismus-Destination

Year: 2006

Author: Frieda Raich

Link: https://www.springer.com/de/book/9783835005990

Abstract: Local and regional spaces are the result of the consolidation of economic, political, social and cultural activities. They compete with each other, but also offer a shapable environment for action. Managing their development to support their competitiveness is a complex process. Governance circumscribes changes in the discussion of steering, focusing not on one-sided concepts but on the interplay between self-organization and steering. Based on political governance theory, Frieda Raich examines the specifics of steering spatial competitive units at the regional level and identifies starting points for competitive development of regional areas. She combines the discussed levels and elements of governance to a model of governance of tourism destinations, establishes a practical reference by means of an empirical study and finally concretizes the main determinants in tourism areas.
