Das Controllability-Prinzip im Spannungsfeld von Theorie und Praxis

Eine empirische Untersuchung zur Verantwortung von Managern

Inwieweit können und sollen Manager Verantwortung tragen? Diese Frage wird in der Öffentlichkeit kontrovers diskutiert. Meist wird gefordert, Manager nur für das verantwortlich zu machen, was sie auch beeinflussen können. Clemens Pelster untersucht die Relevanz dieser als Controllability-Prinzip bezeichneten Forderung für die betriebswirtschaftliche Praxis. Er entwickelt ein Forschungsmodell, das die Modellierung der Prinzipal-Agenten-Theorie um die Elemente Verantwortungsbewusstsein, generelle Beeinflussbarkeit und wahrgenommener Handlungsrahmen erweitert. Der Autor zeigt, dass die Wahrnehmung dessen, was sie beeinflussen können, und das Verantwortungsbewusstsein bei Managern unterschiedlich ausgeprägt sind, und präsentiert Handlungsempfehlungen, wie dies bei der Ausgestaltung von Anreizsystemen berücksichtigt werden kann.

Mit »Bullshit« legte der amerikanische Philosoph Harry G. Frankfurt den Klassiker der »Empört Euch!«-Bücher vor. Im Sturmlauf eroberte er die Herzen aller, die vom Nonsense-Gerede in U-Bahn und Büro und auf allen Kanälen schon lange genug hatten. Binnen Wochen verkaufte sich sein zorniges Manifest in den Vereinigten Staaten eine halbe Million Mal, ein globaler Feldzug gegen »Bullshitting« war die Folge. Doch Bullshit siegte. Bis heute haben wir dümmliche »Bild«-Kolumnen und hohles Gequassel in den Talkshows und am Handy. Ohnmächtig müssten wir all das über uns ergehen lassen, hätten wir nicht Frankfurts elegant-präzise Abrechnung mit derlei Phänomenen zur Hand, Urschrift aller Wut-Bücher und unverzichtbares Grundlagenwerk der angewandten Dummheitsforschung. Bullshit? Lesen!
