Abstract

Das (Personal-) Management und die Organisation von internationalen Entwicklungs-NGOs sind bisher wenig erforscht. Ziel dieses Beitrags ist es, Aufschluss darueber zu gewinnen, wie diese Organisationen ihre internationalen Aktivitaeten koordinieren und welche Einflussfaktoren hier eine Rolle spielen. Im Fokus stehen dabei die personenorientierten Koordinationsinstrumente. Der vorliegende Beitrag liefert Ergebnisse einer qualitati-ven empirischen Untersuchung in fuenf deutschen international taetigen Entwicklungs-NGOs. Im Ergebnis zeigt sich in diesem Sample erstens die hohe Bedeutung von Entsendungen und persoenlicher Interaktionen als Koordinationsmechanismen sowie zweitens, dass die Wahl der personenorientierten Koordinationsmechanismen insbesondere mit den Projektspezifika variiert, waehrend die Aufgabenspezifika nur einen indirekten und die Organisationsspezifika kaum einen Einfluss besitzen. Hieraus ergeben sich Implikationen sowohl fuer die Praxis als auch fuer die weitere Forschung.
