Global Communications As a large unionized telecommunication company with strong union influence and rich corporate culture, Global Communication GC relies heavily on proper alignment of key stakeholders for its organizational effectiveness. In the past decades, GC has been successfully working with its union in achieving its "mega giant" status in the industry; it has also benefited significantly from its legendary "people edge". As GC seeks to face new challenges, union relations and employee morale continue to play pivotal roles. GC, like any other organization with a rich history, is bound to face challenges and resistance when implementing dramatic changes such as outsourcing and other aggressive cost cutting measures.
Multidisciplinary approach Multidisciplinary knowledge is associated with more than one existing academic discipline or profession. A multidisciplinary community or project is made up of people from different academic disciplines and professions.
These people are engaged in working together as equal stakeholders in addressing a common challenge. A multidisciplinary person is one with degrees from two or more academic disciplines. This one person can take the place of two or more people in a multidisciplinary community.
Over time, multidisciplinary work does not typically lead to an increase or a decrease in the number of academic disciplines. One key question is how well the challenge can be decomposed into subparts, and then addressed via the distributed knowledge in the community.
The lack of shared vocabulary between people and communication overhead can sometimes be an issue in these communities and projects. If challenges of a particular type need to be repeatedly addressed so that each one can be properly decomposed, a multidisciplinary community can be exceptionally efficient and effective.
One example of this scenario is the shift from the approach of focusing on sensory awareness of the whole, "an attention to the 'total field'", a "sense of the whole pattern, of form and function as a unity", an "integral idea of structure and configuration". This has happened in art in the form of cubismphysics, poetry, communication and educational theory.
According to Marshall McLuhanthis paradigm shift was due to the passage from the era of mechanization, which brought sequentiality, to the era of the instant speed of electricity, which brought simultaneity. The political dimensions of forming new multidisciplinary partnerships to solve the so-called societal Grand Challenges were presented in the Innovation Union and in the European Framework Programme, the Horizon operational overlay.
Innovation across academic disciplines is considered the pivotal foresight of the creation of new products, systems, and processes for the benefit of all societies' growth and wellbeing.
Interdisciplinarity "Interdisciplinary activity on a campus is a day-to-day mode of research or study where, in order to do the best work, each researcher's work demands the use of ideas, concepts, materials or instruments from one or more other disciplines. Such research is usually directed to a specified goal or mission.
Transdisciplinarity In practice, transcedisciplinary can be thought of as the union of all interdisciplinary efforts.
While interdisciplinary teams may be creating new knowledge that lies between several existing disciplines, a transcedisciplinary team is more holistic and seeks to relate all disciplines into a coherent whole.
Cross-disciplinary[ edit ] Cross-disciplinary knowledge is that which explains aspects of one discipline in terms of another. Common examples of cross-disciplinary approaches are studies of the physics of music or the politics of literature.
Bibliometric studies of disciplines[ edit ] Bibliometrics can be used to map several issues in relation to disciplines, for example the flow of ideas within and among disciplines Lindholm-Romantschuk,  or the existence of specific national traditions within disciplines.
The method is also objective but the quantitative method may not be compatible with a qualitative assessment and therefore manipulated.
