Wie alles

begann

„Kultfilm oder Kassenflop?“ So lautete der Titel unseres ersten Artikels. Es ging um „Star Wars”. Der Film konnte plötzlich illegal übers Internet geladen werden (dauerte allerdings mehrere Tage). Das war 1998. Und der Grundstein für AUTORIS Research and Publications. Seitdem haben wir viele weitere Artikel geschrieben. Über das Internet. Multimedia und Kommunikation. Über Universitäten. Online-Lernen. Über neue Businessmodelle. Viele Zeitungen und Magazine haben unsere Beiträge veröffentlicht. Im Laufe der Zeit haben wir begonnen, zunehmend eigene Publikationen zu erstellen.

Weiterhin initiieren und organisieren wir mittlerweile laufend Forschungsprojekte zusammen mit Universitäten, Business Schools und anderen Forschungseinrichtungen.

Daneben veranstalten wir Vorträge, entwickeln und bieten Workshops und Programme zu Kommunikation, Führung und Self-Management. Dazu haben wir ein internationales Netzwerk von Dozenten, Coaches und Forschern aufgebaut.

Es ist immer noch das Gleiche, was uns seit jeher begeistert: Wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse zu Führung, Kommunikation, Management und Lernen verständlich zu machen - und im Alltag anwendbar.
