The study reveals differences between more and less effective IA functions and offers explanations by studying organizational, personal, and interpersonal factors within the German corporate governance context. This study highlights the danger of viewing customer satisfaction as the key measure of IA effectiveness since in practice expectations can vary significantly and as sometimes very little may be demanded.
He came to challenge me concerning a prophecy I had made fifteen years before, the which was failing to be fulfilled.
The foretold year, the man said, was virtually over, and I had not kept my word.
What did I want to say to the public to excuse myself for still being alive? My reply did not please my wife at all-the less so since her anxious heart had for a considerable time been concerned about my health.
She tried to stop me, to protest, to unsay the things which I was permitting an interviewer to draw from me, and which I had previously kept even from her. The fulfillment of prophecies, I said, was a curious business.
Often they did not come true literally, but suggestively. Fulfillment might be a bit wide of the mark, open to question and yet unmistakable. Certain factors might be substituted for other factors.
To be sure, I conceded, in spite of my desire for matters to work out in an orderly fashion, I was not yet dead. But my visitor should know that in the year I had set for it, my life had-biologically speaking-reached a low such as I had never known before.
I hoped that my vital forces would help me climb out of this abyss. The Story of a Freidank business reporting and consulting 5 When I spoke in these terms, three months were yet to pass before the biological low to which I had referred reached its extremity: I mention this, however, because the experience caused me once more to note the curious divergence between biological and intellectual vitality.
Periods of physical well-being and blooming health, when the body gives one no trouble at all and one's step is firm, are not at all necessarily periods of outstanding creativity. I wrote the best chapters of The Beloved Returns during a six-month bout with infectious sciatica.
To escape these agonizing twinges, you vainly seek the right position day and night. There is no right position. After nights which may God keep me from ever having to live again, breakfast usually brought a certain respite to my burning, inflamed nerves; and then, sitting at my desk at one strange angle or another, I would perform the unio mystica with Goethe, the "star of sublime beauty.
Despite all its torture, it is not an illness to be taken very seriously. There is a noble saying: It is never from lack of vitality that such an offering of one's life is made, and surely no such lack is shown when-strange case indeed!
Nor was there any sign of that in the agility with which I rose up from the operation, marked with a scar from chest to back, and to the amusement of the doctors rushed home to finish that book.
The Story of a Novel 7 But I want to tell the story ofFaustus, embedded as it is in the pressure and tumult of outward events.
I want to try to reconstruct that story on the basis of my brief daily notes, for myself and for my friends. On this j ourney I took with me the manuscript of a lecture on the nearly finished tetralogy. The expedition led through Chicago to Washington and New York and was rich in encounters, public meetings, and appearances.
Among other things, I once again saw Princeton and the friends belonging to that period of my life when I lived there: We read of feverish defensive measures by the Germans at all probable invasion points, of signs that the French fleet was preparing to go over to the side of the Allies.
The sight of Washington on a war footing was new and remarkable to me. A guest once more of Eugene Meyer and his beautiful wife in their palatial home on Crescent Place, I gazed in astonishment at the heavily militarized district around the Lincoln Memorial, with its barracks, office buildings, and bridges, and at the trains laden with war materials that incessantly rolled into the city.
At a dinner in my hosts' house, at which the Brazilian and Czech ambassadors were present with their wives, the discussion turned to American collaboration with Darlan and the problem of "expediency. I did not conceal my distaste for it.
