Описание: В 1966 году в Национальной библиотеке в Мадриде были обнаружены два манускрипта, написанные Леонардо. Когда-то они не были учтены при каталогизации, и об их существовании не было известно. Этим двум манускриптам дали условные названия «Мадридский кодекс I» и «Мадридский кодекс II».
«Мадридский кодекс I» состоит из 192 листов 1490—1499 годов написания, содержащих изображения различных механизмов и изложения теории механики. Хотя работа и посвящена механике, в ней есть заметки по астрономии и по оптике.
«Мадридский кодекс II» был создан Леонардо в 1503—1505 гг. и состоит из 158 листов. Он собрал исследования в области геометрии, такие, например, как «квадратуры круга». Кроме этого, в нём содержатся работы по перспективе и оптике. В книге можно найти эскизы морских и топографических карт, рассматриваются проблемы военной техники и архитектуры. Самое интересное в этом кодексе — неосуществлённый проект изменения русла реки Арно, эскизы фрески «Битва при Ангиари» и конного памятника Франческо Сфорца.

Example text

Referring to the concept of Heene (1993), mastering knowledge can go along with the ability of reproduction, explanation, application, and integration. The high level of integration and the easy way of applying the knowledge predominantly represent the features of tacit knowledge. As the knowledge is deeply embedded, a reproduction for instance is difficult – if possible at all. Consequently, major difficulties occur if this kind of knowledge will be subject of a benchmarking process because neither a diffusion nor a coordinated transfer is easily possible.

However, the risk of loosing competitive knowledge to competitors through consultants has been acknowledged as a real threat by top managers in large Swedish organizations (Engwall & Eriksson, 1999). Management consulting firms that have successfully fulfilled a competence building role assignment will have an incentive for subsequent exploitation of the acquired knowledge and experience by leveraging the competences to other clients. This competitive leakage risk may with held clients from using management consulting firms for competence building roles.

TWO ROLES OF MANAGEMENT CONSULTING FIRMS: INTERNAL REQUIREMENTS AND CURRENT TRANSFORMATION OF THE INDUSTRY In this paper we define management consulting as “an advisory service contracted for and provided to organizations by specially trained and qualified persons who assist, in an objective and independent manner, the client organization to identify management problems, analyze such problems, and help, when requested, in the implementation of solutions” (Greiner & Metzger, 1983, p. 7). The management consulting industry comprises a broad spectrum of services, ranging from outsourcing IT systems to strategy consulting.
