Holistic approaches for an improvement of worldwide development processes (approaches for world improvement) are aimed to build a peaceful society and to realize a sustainable human lifestyle which coincides with the processes of the earths ecosystems. However, up to now, the practical implementation of the approaches seems to fail. In this thesis, an instrument for analyzing is developed, which allows to examine the feasibility of approaches for world improvement and to point out their strengths and weaknesses. At first a representative inventory of existing approaches is raised. It groups the concepts according to their main focus. Thereafter an adequate (integrated) management tool, as a base for the instrument to be developed, is searched for. Three management tools are therefor examined: EMAS, Balanced Scorecard and the St. Gallen management model. The most applicable management tool then is remodeled and adapted to the application on approaches for world improvement. The result is an analyzing and structuring tool (working title: ASWA) which consists of a sequence of modules and building blocks. An abbreviatory test of the developed tool compares three selected approaches, the Global Marshall Plan for a worldwide Eco-Social Market Economy, the project Auroville and the concept of the ESD, Die Wende der Titanic [The Turnaround of the Titanic]. The test demonstrates the practicability and additional benefits of the ASWA. On the one hand, additional value is gained from the adaptation of a management tool to the application on approaches for world improvement. On the other hand, proponents and representatives of an analyzed approach subsequently have an instrument at their disposal that can help to improve the approach in efficiency while uncovering weaknesses and finding suggestions for alternative and additional components to the approach.
