1 BAM Sonderkolloquium1Berlin, Management of Technical Cooperation Projects – Opportunities and Limitations of IT-Solutions Dr. Tilman Denkler BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing Section S.3 - International Technology Transfer

2 BAM Sonderkolloquium2Berlin, Content Whos Tilman Denkler? Whats management of Technical Cooperation projects about? A TWINNING-Project in Georgia How can IT-solutions improve project management? Data and information exchange via an internet platform Why doesnt IT assure sucessful project implementation? Communication is an iceberg Whats the message?

14 BAM Sonderkolloquium14Berlin, Paul Watzlawick 5 Axioms of communication* Axiom 2: Every communication has a content and relationship aspect such that the latter classifies the former relationship aspect content aspect Axiom 4: Humans communicate both digitally and analogically This means communication includes, apart from the plain meaning of words, more information: information on how the talker wants to be understood information on how the talker himself sees his relation to the receiver of information. *Watzlawick, Paul; Bavelas, Janet; Jackson, Don (1967): Some tentative axioms of communication. In: Pragmatics of human communication: A study of interactional patterns, pathologies, and paradoxes (pp ). New York: W. W. Norton Company. Communication does not only involve the merely spoken words (digital communication), but non-verbal and analog-verbal communication as well.

15 BAM Sonderkolloquium15Berlin, Albert Mehrabian rule* Three elements in face-to-face communication: Words Tone of voice Nonverbal behavior (e.g. facial expression) For incongruent communication of attitudes and emotions: 7% of the message is communicated through words 38% is communicated through vocal tone 55% is communicated through facial expression * Mehrabian, Albert (1981): Silent Messages (2nd ed.), Belmont, CA: Wadsworth. Based on: Mehrabian, Albert; Ferris, Susan R.(1967): Inference of Attitudes from Nonverbal Communication in Two Channels, Journal of Consulting Psychology 31 (3): Mehrabian, Albert; Wiener, Morton (1967). "Decoding of Inconsistent Communications". Journal of Personality and Social Psychology 6 (1): 109–114.

16 BAM Sonderkolloquium16Berlin, Prerequisites for (IT-based) communication Ability to use the IT-system: Understanding (language) Knowledge of technology Willingness to communicate using IT-tools: Security of data Trust BUT: Trust will not be achieved by electronic communication as major aspects of interpersonal communication are not addressed Adjustments and training Data securitiy measures Face-to-face communication, teambuilding measures

17 BAM Sonderkolloquium17Berlin, Conclusions IT-solutions are very useful tools to assure efficient and effective project management Internet-based platforms with password-controlled access have the capability to cover most information exchange needs and a large part of the communication needs in technical cooperation projects BUT: Neither communication nor information exchange will work by simply providing the IT-tools To assure that communication works besides others the relationship-aspect has to be taken into account

20 BAM Sonderkolloquium20Berlin, Theorie Das 'Eisbergmodell' geht auf die Arbeiten Sigmund Freuds zurück, der das 'Eisbergmodell des Bewusstseins' entwickelte. Hiernach ist das menschliche Verhalten gut zu verstehen, wenn man es mit einem im Meer treibenden Eisberg vergleicht: Das, worauf wir in unserem Verhalten in täglichen Situationen bewusst zurückgreifen, macht nur 10-20% dessen aus, was unser Handeln bestimmt. Diese 10-20% liegen 'über Wasser', während die restlichen 80-90% 'unter der Wasseroberfläche' verborgen sind. Die Aussagen Freuds wurden in der Trainingspraxis unter dem Begriff 'Eisbergmodell' auf die Analyse von Kommunikationsinhalten übertragen. Danach dient die Spitze des Eisberges der Veranschaulichung des gesprochenen Wortes, der Körpersprache und dem Verhalten, also dem unmittelbar Wahrnehmbaren. Unter der Wasseroberfläche befinden sich die Motive, Erfahrungen, Emotionen, Bedürfnisse, Normen. Sie stellen den eigentlichen Handlungsantrieb für das Geschehen über der Wasseroberfläche dar, bleiben aber unsichtbar. Sie sind daher schwerer zugänglich und können häufig zunächst nur über Körpersprache, Stimmlage und Mimik erschlossen werden. Im Falle von Kommunikationsproblemen gilt es also neben der Betrachtung des Geschehens über der Wasseroberfläche, darunter liegende Ebenen wie Bedürfnisse, Emotionen oder Erfahrungen in die Analyse mit einzubeziehen.

21 BAM Sonderkolloquium21Berlin, Paul Watzlawick (1921 – 2007) 5 Axioms of communication * *Watzlawick et al., 1967: Some tentative axioms of communication. In: Pragmatics of human communication: A study of interactional patterns, pathologies, and paradoxes (pp ). New York: W. W. Norton Company. "If we remember that every communication has a content and a relationship aspect, we can expect to find that the two modes of communication not only exists side by side but complement each other in every message. We can further expect to find that the content aspect is likely to be conveyed digitally whereas the relationship aspect will be predominantly analogic in nature.
