Eric Horster entwickelt ein Messinstrument, um die Komplexität des Reputationskonstruktes abbilden und dieses auf den Reiseentscheidungsprozess im web beziehen zu können. Da popularity als abstraktes Phänomen empirisch schwer zu erfassen ist, wird sie über den Umweg von sichtbaren Indikatoren gemessen. Der Autor entwickelt dazu ein Strukturgleichungsmodell, das er mithilfe einer PLS-Pfadanalyse auswertet. Er diskutiert verschiedene Beispiele des Reputationsmanagements in der Hotellerie, bei Destinationen und für Bewertungsportale, bewertet ihre Umsetzbarkeit und gibt Ausblick auf weiteren Forschungsbedarf.

In der Praxis stellen konjunkturelle Schwankungen eine erhebliche Herausforderung für Unternehmen dar. Gleichwohl hat sich die betriebswirtschaftliche Forschung bisher nur am Rande mit dem Konjunkturphänomen als challenge der Unternehmenssteuerung auseinandergesetzt. Mark Mette entwickelt aus systemtheoretischer Perspektive ein Konzept, das es dem Betrieb ermöglicht, die Chancen des Konjunkturzyklus wahrzunehmen und die konjunkturellen Risiken zu bewältigen. Der Autor zeigt, dass nur durch adäquate strategische Maßnahmen in unterschiedlichen betrieblichen Bereichen ein Unternehmen sein Abschneiden im Zyklus, auch im Vergleich zu seinen Konkurrenten, verbessern kann. Das konjunkturorientierte strategische administration leistet auf diese Weise auch einen Beitrag zur Sicherung der Wettbewerbsfähigkeit des Betriebes.
