Integrunt is a joint project for developing an integrated modernisation concept which focuses on the preconditions and opportunities of a process-related dynamic integration from staff on low levels of hierarchy. In dynamic and flexible companies decentralization and planning ist not sufficiently: furthermore process-related communication and knowledge transfer between different hierarchical levels, which expires not seperately from current work processes but directly linked with them is necessary. The integrated modernisation concept is focussed on a cooperation of staff in current work processes, as well as the interplay between coordination in formal meetings and informal cooperation and communication.
