Vernetzung und Gestaltung von Vernetzung sind zentrale Themen dieses achten Bandes der ZMS-Schriftenreihe. Planspiele ermöglichen Lernen in und über Systeme, das Denken in Strukturen sowie das Erleben und Verstehen von Zusammenhängen. Sie eignen sich darüber hinaus hervorragend, wissenschaftlich-analytisches Wissen über die Realität und reale Systeme zu abstrahieren, zu vereinfachen, didaktisch aufzubereiten und dadurch verständlich und vermittelbar zu machen. Planspiele führen aber auch zur Vernetzung der Teilnehmenden. Sie erfordern von diesen, sich auf die Situation und die anderen Akteure einzulassen. Sie ermöglichen reale Interaktion, Austausch und Netzwerken zwischen allen Beteiligten. Planspiele können also selbst als Netzwerkgestalter verstanden werden. Ihr Einsatz bringt Informationen und Menschen zusammen und lässt neue, intensive Netzwerke entstehen. Die Beiträge in diesem Sammelband zeigen eine Vielzahl möglicher Perspektiven und Fragestellungen zum Themenfeld auf. Erstmals wurden viele davon einem Double-Blind Peer-Reviewverfahren unterzogen. Die hohe Qualität der Beiträge konnte dadurch nochmals gesteigert werden. Dieser Band entstand als Kooperationsprojekt des Zentrums für Managementsimulation der DHBW Stuttgart mit der SAGSAGA, der Gesellschaft für Planspiele in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz e. V.. Somit vertieft er auch die Vernetzung und Zusammenarbeit mit dem deutschsprachigen Planspielfachverband.

This book provides the state of the art in the simulation and gaming study field by systematically collecting excellent papers presented at the 46th International Simulation and Gaming Association annual conference held in Kyoto 17–25 July 2015. Simulation and gaming has been used in a wide variety of areas ranging from early childhood education and school-age children, universities, and professional education, to policy exploration and social problem solving. Moreover, it now been drastically changing its features in the Internet Of Things (IOT) society while taking over a wide variety of aliases, such as serious games and gamification. Most of the papers on which this book’s chapters are based were written by academic researchers, both up-and-coming and well known. In addition, simulation and gaming is a translational system science going from theory to clinical cross-disciplinary topics. With this book, therefore, graduate students and higher-level researchers, educators, and practitioners can become familiar with the state-of-the-art academic research on simulation and gaming in the network society of the twenty-first century.

Focusing on countermeasures against orchestrated cyber-attacks, Cyber Security Culture is research-based and reinforced with insights from experts who do not normally release information into the public arena. It will enable managers of organizations across different industrial sectors and government agencies to better understand how organizational learning and training can be utilized to develop a culture that ultimately protects an organization from attacks. Peter Trim and David Upton believe that the speed and complexity of cyber-attacks demand a different approach to security management, including scenario-based planning and training, to supplement security policies and technical protection systems. The authors provide in-depth understanding of how organizational learning can produce cultural change addressing the behaviour of individuals, as well as machines. They provide information to help managers form policy to prevent cyber intrusions, to put robust security systems and procedures in place and to arrange appropriate training interventions such as table top exercises. Guidance embracing current and future threats and addressing issues such as social engineering is included. Although the work is embedded in a theoretical framework, non-technical staff will find the book of practical use because it renders highly technical subjects accessible and links firmly with areas beyond ICT, such as human resource management - in relation to bridging the education/training divide and allowing organizational learning to be embraced. This book will interest Government officials, policy advisors, law enforcement officers and senior managers within companies, as well as academics and students in a range of disciplines including management and computer science.
