There is a detailed German review for this work. Read here


One of the great strengths of this reference book is the excellent research on disasters concerning High- Reliability Organizations (HRO). The authors broad scope based on models and theories of different scientifical fields proofs that the factor „team“ is the key to a solid and formative practice of modern technologies. A team developed attention and awareness regarding the work process belong to the conductive conditions when dealing with high-technologies. Furthermore a multiprofessional cooperation represents an essential factor. All actors are skilled in cooperative competences. However Langemeyer doesn´t stop at this knowledge but points out the dangers of a dogmatic use of technologies. At this point power structures come into the view of the observer and invite implicitly to deal critically with social conditions.


An absolutely profound book on a yet scientifically sparesly reflected theme which for sure can be read more than once giving impulse into different directions. A book every (team) leader should read; offering a professional base in discussions on professionalization. Afterwards the reader of this reference book will take a closer look on collaboration, discussions about guiding principles and the high technologization of work processes- only to mention a view points. Though Langemeyer uses very specific theories and models she shows in a profound and descriptive way that it is about more than competency only: it is about cooperative competency! Everyone to whom the future, humans, as well as safe and formative work processes play a role should read this book, more than once!
