A Study about Analysis of Organizational Culture and Structure as a Basis for the Implementation of Knowledge Management
In the commercial world of today Knowledge Management and Organizational Learning are supposed to be indispensable prerequisites for the competitive ability of companies. Organizational learning can be considered analogous to individual learning. It is based on individual learning processes and means a change of organizational structure and/or culture with the aim of surviving in the dynamic environment. Organizational learning should be systematic and should include all the people concerned. Managers, in particular, have the potential to change an organization and therefore they should act in an exemplary way.

Organisations can only remain competitive in this dynamic ﬁeld if they change. Therefore, a systematic interaction of both organisational learning and knowledge – known as knowledge management – has become an important matter for organisations. It seems that the existing structures and prevailing organisation cultures, in particular, have an essential inﬂuence on the success of these eﬀorts. This article shows that organisational learning can be undertaken in a deliberate way and that people play a leading part in this process. A case study illustrates and improves the theoretical comments and gives a lot of tips for real use. Keep reading..

Abstract: This thesis involves a detailed study of steel-wood hybrid structures and their applications in construction industry. Hybrid structures combine benefits of dissimilar materials to overcome their individual limitations. Various advantages and challenges of steel-timber hybrid structures are presented. Benefits include increase in tensil e capacity, seismic performance, fire resistance of the structure, and cost savings. Challenges with this type of hybrid structures originate from the differences in the properties of the materials used.
Introduction: Hybrid construction combines the structural and architectural features of components made from different materials. In hybrid construction, various materials may work independently or act together homogeneously, but are always better than a single material. During the last decade a lot of research has been done on applications of hybrid structures however, the available information and details for steel and wood hybrid structures are dispersed and not readily accessible to builders.
