Paper presented at the 68th International Communication Association Conference. Prague, May The big data revolution has changed the way organizations operate. The implications have been phenomenal for communications and public relations professionals who are trying to understand and manage the realm of big data and what it means for them.
This study is an attempt to dive deeper into the discussion on how professionals are managing the world of big data. A large survey of sixty European and Latin American countries reveals interesting comparative findings on the knowledge and usage of big data and automation and demonstrates large gaps between the continents. The paper examines the differences and similarities in the regions and whether communication professionals are using big data as a strategic tool. Implications for theory and practice are also discussed in the present study.
London: Palgrave Macmillan. Exploring the implications of 10 years of data from more than 21, communication professionals across Europe, combined with case studies and interviews with senior communication directors from top European companies and organisations, this book provides an insight into how to build, develop and lead excellent communication.
It presents a culmination of research and best practice models, covering strategic communication, the impact on reputation, crisis, mediatisation, organisational culture, new digital, social and mobile media as well as the development of professionalisation.
The study behind this book, the European Communication Monitor, is known as the most comprehensive provider of reliable data in the communication field worldwide. Several leaders in communication management and scholarship have reviewed the book and commented:. Wright, Ph. A must read. That is why this book on communication excellence is so valuable: it helps to understand and interpret how communications can help to contribute to organisational success, and how communication departments and professionals can leverage this potential to a full extent.
Big Data and Automation in Strategic Communication. International Journal of Strategic Communication , 11 2 , Big data and automation pose huge challenges for strategic communication. This article contributes to the limited body of knowledge in the field by introducing the concepts, outlining opportunities and potential problems, and identifying current perceptions and applications in the professional field. A large-scale survey, with respondents from across more than 40 countries, explores the expertise of communication professionals, applications within communication departments and agencies, and consequences for the profession at large.
The study shows a large gap between the perceived importance and current practices, a lack of competencies and ethical reflection, and a limited use of opportunities. The full potential of big data analytics and algorithms has not been leveraged until now, which calls for new initiatives in the practice and further research. Evaluation stasis continues in PR and corporate communication: Asia Pacific insights into causes. Communication Research and Practice 3. The first comprehensive study of public relations PR and corporate communication practices across Asia-Pacific countries has found that, despite being an area of rapid growth, evaluation remains limited, is often not based on reliable research methods, and is focussed on outputs rather than the outcomes of communication.
This reflects a worldwide stasis in evaluation of PR that has been identified as problematic by a number of authors.

This article reports key findings of this study that contribute insights to address the lack of measurement and evaluation in the growing field of PR that remains a major concern in the academy and industry. Corporate Communications — An International Journal , 22 1 , The purpose of this paper is to examine the status quo of communication evaluation and measurement practices in communication departments of companies, non-profits, and other organizations across Europe. The study argues that the challenge to conduct reliable measurement is threefold: first, communication professionals have to understand and develop skills how to conduct evaluation; second, they have to evaluate whether communication activities have reached those goals in practice; and finally, they have to use those insights to advance and manage their future activities.
These aspects are elaborated in the literature review. A quantitative survey of 1, professionals from 40 European countries was conducted to research prerequisites, implementation and benefits of communication measurement and compare practices across types of organizations. Although robust knowledge of empirical research methods and their application for measuring communication effects is indispensable, many practitioners lack the necessary expertise to conduct reliable evaluation and measurement.
Communication departments seldom measure communication effects on stakeholders and organizational goals. Many remain focused on media and channels. Last but not least, organizations do not fully exploit the potential of measurement data for strategically planning future communication activities. Practical implications. The findings highlight the need to reconsider current education and training in communication research methods and their application in corporate practice. Knowledge about conducting applied research is as important as asking meaningful questions and using insights for management decisions in a corporate environment.
Evaluation methods are often discussed, but individual skills and the organizational use of insights are important as well. This might be tackled through additional training in social science research techniques, sophisticated valuation methods, and decision making.
The large-scale study shows that communication measurement practices are still in a nascent stage. Joint efforts of academics and professional associations have not really changed the situation until now. The three dimensions used in this research skills, practices, and utilization can be used to assess the measurement readiness of individual organizations, to conduct further research in other regions, and to identify future challenges for advancing the field.
Excellence in Communication Management. One of the main challenges in the practice of communication management in the last few years is the link between corporate and communication strategies.
Evaluating and auditing communication functions and its excellent practices are essential to demonstrate value and integrate communication into corporate objectives. The Theory of Excellence has largely influenced the conceptualization of excellence in public relations and communication management. This paper presents a new empirical quantitative approach to excellence in communication management through the Comparative Excellence Framework CEF.
Data were stored through a survey with a sample of 2, communication practitioners in 42 European countries. This paper put forward the analysis of data from Spanish, based on a sample of practitioners working in communication management and public relations departments. Results shows that communication departments in Spain are placed between the first positions in Europe when come to excellence. Excellence communication functions have more access to the organizational executive board.
Most practitioners working in those excellent functions play a strategic facilitator role. Nevertheless, excellence is not related in Spain with a better management of challenges of high volume and speed of information, neither with a more positive evaluation of digital media. This paper presents the Comparative Excellence Framework as an alternative framework to the dominant normative and idealistic model of the Excellent Theory, conceptually hand in hand with other managerial models and through an empirical quantitative approach to excellence in communication management.
Corporate Communications — An International Journal, 21 2 Purpose — The purpose of this paper is to examine and analyze the prevailing form of rationality that governs the challenges, goals and roles of communication professionals. The authors will also explore alternative forms of rationality and discuss what these would imply.
First, the authors present the ECM data and the Swedish interview material, i. The interviews focus on the actual practices of linking communication goals to business goals. The qualitative interview study strengthens the results in the ECM. The interviewees seem to do their work according to the traditional management agenda — i. The results are reflected upon using paradox theory.
Two paradoxes are discussed: between managerialism and professionalism, and strategic generalists and operational specialists. Practical implications — The paper focuses conflicts between normative practitioner ideals and reality, and helps practitioners to reflect upon mainstream thinking. We can be smart, but we are only smart if we need to be. Quite often we waste resources on irrelevant actions instead. Some armed services have lists of principles of war ; elegance in warfare is certainly a good candidate for an update. Economy of force far from being universally recognised anyway can be ditched instead.
Labels: Military Theory. Once upon a time, there was an exemplary defensive alliance. It showed after centuries of more versatile alliances that you could also design an alliance in order to maintain peace, not just in order to overpower your enemies in the next, inevitable, war. We threw this alliance away in and turned it into a political-military adventure organiser. We've been reminded about this move these days, and one of my very few fears is that we all will regret this sometime.

The last episodes of the show were great here's the full last one. A politically incorrect in Germany official 's booklet of the German army. It was revised, re-named and re-issued a few years ago and drew again PC criticism. I didn't get the criticism even on this original booklet. You should either maintain an army and prepare it properly or you disarm.
There should be no tax money-wasting middle way the PC criticism seems to have come from people who agree with this because they favour disarmament. The booklet is an excellent source on the soldier's basic competencies for everyone who can read German texts. Labels: Other. Yet another embarrassing air war in a fair weather scenario. At least some of the combat aircraft involved in the current air campaign against Libyan loyalists are taking off as far away as from Germany and the UK.
This reminds me of the air war against Yugoslavia when combat aircraft took off in Northern Italy, not in the more close Southern Italy. This time it's just more extreme. Well, is this about a fetish for tanker aircraft? Europeans such as the French are generally not the usual suspects for this. Is it about an inability to deploy quickly to Mediterranean airfields, such as on Sicily?

The whole affair developed over days, and my expectation is that a lag of several days should be enough for the deployment of a squadron or two. A similar observation is about the campaign being led by some U. Several participants want to transfer command to a NATO staff. Why isn't it possible to form an ad hoc staff? Air campaign operational leadership is not quantum physics, after all. Most of the planning can be done and is usually done by the involved wings and squadrons - the pilots - themselves, anyway. Again, I have substantially higher expectations here than the European air force officer corps seem to be able to meet.
And then there's the cruise missile salvo, which seems to have addressed the stationary air defence batteries. Let's face it; by now all combat aircraft can be expected to be invulnerable to the 's air defence missiles which are way beyond their shelf life and serviced by as far as is known ill-trained and ill-motivated troops, if any. This "destruction of enemy air defences first" mantra has developed its own life, is able to sustain itself even in face of paper air defences.
Thus we have yet another air war in near-perfect terrain and weather conditions, against a de facto defenceless target and still lots of behind the scenes embarrassments for air forces from "the West".
Labels: Air Force. This is a quote from chapter V. Hier trafen General Guderian und Generalmajor Kempf aufeinander, dessen 6. Panzerdivision eigentlich dem Panzerkorps Reinhardt unterstand. Kleist gewesen. The final breakthrough through the ridge-line west of the Ardennes canal succeeded, where the French had for a last time attempted to contain the bridgehead of Sedan.
From there the armoured formations advanced almost without resistance westwards. In the meantime, the so-called "operational level of command" had long ago lost control. The armoured forces rather led themselves. Symptomatic for this was an episode which happened on this day on the market place of Montcornet. General Guderian and Major-General Kempf coincidentally met there. Kempf's 6th armoured division was assigned to the armoured corps Reinhardt. Both generals congratulated each other for their success, then they began to disentangle the marching columns and distributed among each other the further routes of advance.
This was in actual fact the task of the General v. Kleist [Guderian's superior]. This is a historical example for what I attempted to push more into the spotlight in previous posts already: Less vertical control by superior, more horizontal cooperation. This is obviously totally opposed to the U. Officers with suitable training and thinking do cooperate instead of compete or even attempt a free ride in challenges. The horizontal cooperation happens between the best-informed minds available for coordination.
There's no need to inform a higher staff in detail about a fluid situation as for coordination. Few if any plans agreed on in horizontal coordination will be outdated before implementation. A1 and A2 have a common superior in A. Their opponent is B and the best chance for success is a joint attack at the same time from different directions on B. Vertical coordination synchronisation would require A to know about the positions of A1, A2 and B and to guess the near-future movements of B correctly. It would order an attack at a given time from two given positions on B.
B could ruin the whole plan by dodging the whole with movement because the process is slow. Horizontal cooperation would only require A1 and A2 to understand the situation and to stay in contact till both have manoeuvred into a good position and are ready for attack at the same time. Then they agree to attack immediately to exploit the opportunity. This attack cannot happen too late or too early unless they misunderstood the situation - a circumstance that would affect vertical coordination in the same way. It's similar to two men carrying heavy furniture up some stairs.
A third man giving orders from a distance is rarely even useful. The two have a much better, more direct grasp of the situation and most of the coordination needs to be done by them anyway. The same principle can be applied to indirect fire support. There's no need to pool long-range fire support under centralised command if it could as well be allocated to individual manoeuvre elements who support simply everyone in their range - including other elements of their own kind. They could have too few indirect fire support for their own needs, and this would force even the least social commanding officers into cooperation and giving support as much as they receive support.
This could be very important in a modern setting, where we lack the force density for establishing and maintaining front lines in most scenarios and could thus not expect that centralised indirect fire support would be protected against raiders by a screen such as a front line. No army anywhere seems to emphasise the importance and potential of horizontal cooperation. Even the German army which is too content with its 19th century Auftragstaktik innovation merely stresses the importance of staying in contact with neighbours for maintaining situational awareness and avoiding fratricide and gaps.
I have read field manuals from eight countries plus many historical ones and none came even close to emphasise horizontal cooperation vs. This is one of the reasons why I consider even the Western military forces to be way behind the potential, in other words: Outdated. This happened before around and led to the extreme suffering of the First World War. The full text is here and here is additionally a list on which UNSC member voted for it or abstained.
The Council then adopted resolution by a vote of 10 in favour to none against, with 5 abstentions Brazil, China, Germany, India, Russian Federation. This has yielded some harsh criticism and some support by German newspaper comments. The harsh critique suggests that Germany should have voted with the Western powers in favour of the resolution. German minister of foreign affairs Westerwelle had promised that Germany was ready for accepting responsibilities in the UNSC and supposedly failed to do the same now.
The point of being a member in the UNSC is not to vote like a group of other members all the time. They voted together with China and Russia as comments pointed out, but they also voted together with Brazil and India. This wasn't a UNSC vote with self-evident result. There was no self-evident reaction to a clear aggression as in , for example. The whole vote was very much a matter for consideration. Some comments supposed that abstaining from this vote will hurt us politically, but I actually expect the opposite.
Whom do you offer better trade-offs in negotiations? The party which always supports you or the party which makes up its mind independently? I read somewhere that Germany might at most support indirectly by relieving NATO a bit in Afghanistan, which makes no sense since other forces are required and there are enough forces available unless it's a backdoor approach for getting the parliament's support for a raise of the force limit in AFG.
The German air force will not be missed much over Libya. Libyan loyalists are, after all, just another almost defenceless punching ball for the West, not a near-peer opponent. The conservative-liberal government has coincidentally done something that I can support. It happens sometimes. Labels: Fun.

Ideologisch motivierter terroristischer Angriff organisierter Krimineller: Kurzfristig geringe Wahrscheinlichkeit, mittelfristig mittlere Wahrscheinlichkeit. Eine Einstufung als sicherheitspolitisch relevantes Ereignis durch die Gesellschaft ist nicht zu erwarten.
Wie sollte sie das tun? Sicherheitspolitik kann fast nur in einer Krise auch schnelle Erfolge erzielen. Vorbeugende Sicherheitspolitik muss langfristig durchgehalten werden, um langfristig Sicherheit zu erringen. Deutschland hat deswegen bereits Sicherungen entwickelt. Dies kann bis hin zum Verlassen der Allianz reichen, um nicht mehr mit Ihnen assoziiert zu sein. Deutschland hat sich im Atomwaffensperrvertrag dazu verpflichtet, keine Atommacht zu werden. Kein Abkommen ist perfekt, aber dieses macht Sinn.

Ein Wiederholen einer Aggressionskette wie bis zu einer Aggression gegen Deutschland selbst ist nicht zu erwarten. Ein Spezialproblem bildet jedoch ein Genozid. Die Ereignisse des Jahres " Hufeisenplan " sollten uns hierbei als Mahnung dienen. Ein bewiesener Genozid stellt einen Ausnahmefall dar. Das Verbrechen muss jedoch zweifelsfrei nachgewiesen werden.
