Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1.5, , course: MSc Project management, language: English, abstract: This is research has the intention to examine risk management in multi project environment with the aim of finding out how organizations do their risk implementations and if the implementation of risk processes within participant organizations has any impact on the rate of project success within a multi-project environment. As found in most literatures, project risk management has concentrated more on single standalone projects as opposed to managing project risk as portfolio where lesson learned from one project could be of benefit to another project within the same project environment.As risk management in projects has evolved over the recent decades as an integral part of project management in recent time, it has gained tremendous attention within the industrial sector because of an increased awareness about the relationship between efforts to reduce risk and project success. Within the academic community, there is the existence of gap in literatures regarding risk management in multiple project environments, and for the fact that the research that has been performed within the academic community has largely focused on the idea of risk management occurring in single project environments; the research will be aimed at how risk management is implemented within the organizations that will be examined, in order to ...

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, European School of Business Reutlingen, language: English, abstract: Management research is constantly criticized in the academic community to have very little impact on managers in practical life. This problem is highly discussed in academic circles and often referred to as the utilization problem (van Aken, 2004) or the rigor-relevance dilemma/gap (Fincham & Clark, 2009; Avenier, 2010). The problem is that the conducted management research is either scientifically verified, but not relevant for practice or practically relevant but not scientifically verified (van Aken, 2004). There are various explanations for this problem. Many researchers claim that a lack of sufficient communication presentation of management research is the root of the problem (Davies, 2007). This is in accordance with the so-called "knowledge transfer problem"(Shapiro, Kirkman, & Courtey, 2007). Others blame the little relevance of management research for practitioners (Denyer, Tranfield, & van Aken, 2007), which is reflected in the "knowledge production problem" (Shapiro, Kirkman, & Courtey, 2007). Furthermore, management research is claimed as "too descriptive" (van Aken, 2004), which means that management science is only describing and analyzing but not actually providing solutions to problems. Lastly, some researchers describe management...

Education is an indispensable tool for the continued existence and growth of any nation. Finances are a major educational input and hence their management could have implications on academic achievement. Stakeholders have made unsupported claims that funds are mismanaged and misdirected hence poor performance in national examinations. This study sought to establish the implications of financial management on academic achievement in public secondary schools in Kakamega County, Kenya. The study is anchored on the production function model. The findings established that most managers attended to their roles but lacked the prerequisite skills. The study further revealed that there was a strong positive correlation between funds spent on direct academic programs and KCSE mean score so the null hypothesis was rejected. Correlation between income received and KCSE mean score was positive and strong.The study concludes that financial management is critical to academic achievement and hence total quality management is inevitable.

This topical and much needed book constitutes an important part of the debate on the integrity in an academic context as a sine qua non of responsible management education. Like you, we've all been listening to the highly publicized corporate scandals and instances of management misconduct that have eroded public faith. Simultaneously, management scholars and educators have begun to question the assumptions underlying the traditional management education, which in their view not only contributed to a recent moral crisis but has also failed to prepare students and executives for coping with the responsible leadership challenges and ethical dilemmas that face managers in contemporary corporations. This book discusses, with stimulating examples, how universities should bring alive their core values. Using case studies and examples from universities from all over the world, you'll learn real practical advice and guidance, which explain in detail how you and other administrators and educators should discover, articulate, and institutionalize (implementation, securing and controlling by creating adequate policies, procedures process, etc.) university core values into academic daily activities and create a foundation for academy integrity.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Controlling, grade: 1,7, University of Münster, 90 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The competitive environment for companies is steadily becoming more challenging and demanding. Large planned company take-overs as recently announced from multinational corporations like for instance MITTAL STEEL or E.ON AG indicate the demand for more sophisticated and advanced management accounting information in order to react properly on the external market pressures worldwide. Multinational companies regularly have to cope with different institutional environments, management practices, techniques as well as cultural understandings between the respective countries. While in this context the field of financial accounting has already attracted much attention from the academic world on a comparative nationwide level, the area of internal management accounting has largely been a concern of approaches focussing on single countries only. These approaches have been analysed by national academic scholars and as a consequence also influenced the practices in other countries. However, in order to initiate a discussion and to highlight best practices, novelties and inefficiencies in the management accounting world, a sophisticated comparison drawing on the differences and similarities in the observed countries has only recently been conducted in the management accounting literature.Furthermore, different l...

A volume in Contemporary Perspectives in Human Capital and DevelopmentWhen reading current human capital management or human resources management textbooks, it is clear that many do not reflect current research. Even new Strategic HRM books are only recently reporting research that has been widely discussed in academic journals over the last 10 years. Discussion with those who span the academic/practice worlds shows that they have regularly been struck by the dissonance between the journals and the texts. They agree that there should be more commonality but suggest that, although some of the HRM journal articles may carry some implications for practice, many do not. They are often vague as to the real potential value of the research and only outline potential interventions in a very rudimentary way.Covering a range of topics which affect the way that human capital is attracted, developed, managed and supported, this book presents recent research which can be applied to the real world. Written by practitioners with academics, each chapter provides an overview of the research, as well as the links to current human capital management practices and identifying potential implications for future implementation. The book is designed to be of interest to academic researchers, university professors and graduate students, and to management scientists, industry economists, government officials, public policy developers and analysts, research and laboratory managers, marketing, human res...

Comprehensive coverage of understanding, prevention, and risk management of extreme drought events, with examples of approaches followed in water-stressed regions This book describes the progress made in our understanding of severe drought and explains how we can deal with—and even avoid—complete devastation brought on by such punishing events. It brings forward advanced knowledge on drought hazard analysis and management, particularly from EU-funded research projects, to assist in the development of the corresponding drought management plans. In addition, this book addresses issues of social vulnerability to drought and science-policy interfaces, which are important elements of drought management. Divided into three sections, this book covers the diagnosis of physical processes, historic drought and the trends in historic drought, and perspectives of future drought. It takes an academic approach to risk evaluation, including characterization of drought episodes, development of indicators of risk in hydrological and agricultural systems, and analysis of the role of socio-economic instruments for risk mitigation. It also discusses the interactions that have resulted in the complex institutional framework, and highlights the importance of stakeholder involvement and awareness building for successful drought management. In addition, Drought: Science and Policy features a collection of case studies that include the description of effective measures taken in the past. Addresses the growing issue of drought preparedness planning, monitoring, and mitigation Teaches methodologies and lessons focused on specific, drought-prone regions so the applications have more significance Provides examples of approaches followed in water-stressed regions (river basin and national scale) with drought analyses at the pan-European scale Drought: Science and Policy will be an invaluable reference for researchers and practitioners in the field as well as Masters students taking relevant courses in drought management and natural disaster management.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: 1.7, UNITEC New Zealand (Supply Management Institute (SMI)), course: Diplom, 105 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Problem Definition and Scope of the Diploma ThesisThe problem which is addressed in this diploma thesis is the research deficit in the field of benchmarking supply and sourcing strategies. As it was stated in the introduction, no academic publication could be identified in which supply or sourcing strategies in the automotive industry are benchmarked with another industry and detailed recommendations for a particular industry are derived. This lack of academic research is related to a general research deficit in the whole field of supply management which was already identified by Wildemann (2000), Van Weele (2002) and Jahns (2005). The whole field of supply management cannot be entirely benchmarked within two industries in a diploma thesis. Because of that and to reduce complexity, the sourcing strategy triangle which is further explained in section 2.4 and shown in the following figure 2 was developed as a benchmarking framework.1.3 Structure of the Diploma ThesisFirstly, chapter one provides an introduction including the problem definition (section 1.1), background information about the Hilti Corporation (section 1.2) and the structure of the diploma thesis (section 1.3).

Yet management today is so important that we cannot ignore the approaches of the past if we are to develop sustainable decentralised technologies for water collection and conservation. We might remember that the key feature of ancient water management strategies lay in using multiple water sources, collecting local rain runoff and in the appropriate reuse of different grades of water.

We draw upon a rich array of USA and non-USA scholars and empiricalsources in this volume and we are most grateful to our volume's distinguished academic contributors for sustaining our book series aspiration to both reflectupon and shape innovative thinking and practice on important issues of management education and development.The over-arching theme in each chapter is the need for each innovation to be integrated within the larger body of curriculum, program structures andpedagogic practices of the innovative Business School and its overall management education curriculum. Piecemeal and stand-alone versions of eachinnovation are seen more as pilots for early stage demonstration of the value of the innovation. Each chapter argues for a more holistic approach toembedding each innovation within the fabric of the entire business school and graduate management education enterprise. This call for holistic, integrativeapproaches to graduate management education is amply demonstrated in many chapters of this volume and we sincerely hope that you will find someinspiration in the forthcoming pages for further...

Edward Anomanyo Win by Integrating Solid Waste Management with Bioreactor Treatment

In a lot of communities in developing countries and in Accra Ghana, for that matter, solid waste management is characterized by single method approaches such as collect-and-dump. Lesser social acceptability of dump sites and inadequate operational funding often lead to collapse of these management systems. Solid waste quantities and composition in such communities present an opportunity to plan and operate management strategies that address social, economic and environmental impacts of the waste. Integrating strategies as collection and sorting for recycling, stakeholder (private investors, policy makers/management and the public) involvement and bioreactor treatment will yield optimum benefits to operational funds, clean environment and to society; a win-win-win scenario that must be appealing to policy makers and investors.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Personnel and Organisation, grade: 1.0, , course: Bachelor of Human Resource Management, language: English, abstract: Employee motivation was defined by Torrington (2008) as "an effort or drive that an individual puts into an activity". This research paper investigated the effectiveness of money as motivator for academic staff in higher learning institutions. The subjects of the study were 26 workers of Tumaini University Dar es Salaam College, the subjects were divided into two groups; senior management and academic staff. 25 questionnaires were issued to academic staff and an interview was conducted with the principal human resource officer. In spite of other relevant theories, the study was keenly guided by the Herzberg two-factor theory that argued "trying to use money is an inferior way to motivate an employee".Quantitative and qualitative techniques of data analysis were employed. The findings of the study revealed that the effectiveness of money as motivator for academic staff was limited or affected by some motivating factors and not affected or unlimited by others. In the concern of the implications, the limitations and suggestions for future research studies, they are discussed in the final chapter.

Over the last two decades, risk-sensitive control has evolved into an innovative and successful framework for solving dynamically a wide range of practical investment management problems.This book shows how to use risk-sensitive investment management to manage portfolios against an investment benchmark, with constraints, and with assets and liabilities. It also addresses model implementation issues in parameter estimation and numerical methods. Most importantly, it shows how to integrate jump-diffusion processes which are crucial to model market crashes.With its emphasis on the interconnection between mathematical techniques and real-world problems, this book will be of interest to both academic researchers and money managers. Risk-sensitive investment management links stochastic control and portfolio management. Because of its distinct emphasis on integrating advanced theoretical concepts into practical dynamic investment management tools, this book stands out from the existing literature in fundamental ways. It goes beyond mainstream research in portfolio management in a traditional static setting. The theoretical developments build on contemporary research in stochastic control theory, but are informed throughout by the need to construct an effective and practical framework for dynamic portfolio management.This book fills a gap in the literature by connecting mathematical techniques with the real world of investment management. Readers seeking to solve key problems such as...

Kevin Wayne Deconstructing Management Maxims, Volume II. A Critical Examination of Conventional Business Wisdom

4552 руб.
A contrarian challenge to the status quo, this book vigorously champi­ons healthy skepticism in management theory and practice. Several com­mon management maxims - often taken for granted as truisms - are examined and debunked with evidence-based arguments. The constant repetition of these flawed tropes perpetuates their mythological status and limits personal and organizational performance. Eleven management maxims are rebuked using empirical data, original scholarship, literature reviews, field observations, and thoughtful opinions from numerous ex­perts. Far from a business as usual business book, Deconstructing Manage­ment Maxims has been researched with academic rigor yet written in an approachable style. Unafraid of taking on conventional business wisdom, it contains some controversial yet substantiated positions that will pro­voke critical thinking and debate. After all, sacred cows and long-believed tenets of management lore do not go away quietly. A clear message from this book is that you don't have to believe everything you read or hear-be it in the classroom or at work! It offers a refreshing break from the constant drumbeat of dronish corporate and academic clichés. This book is best appreciated by readers wanting to think critically about important management phenomena.

Sales have been the subject of academic studies since the second half of the twentieth century but they were still held to be non strategic and marginal, as reflected by the scarce amount of academic works published on the matter. This has marked a gap between scholars and operational practices. Only in the last decade, as new marketing researches and theoretical models were added, has academics’ interest towards sales management arisen. It is relevant to debate on what emerges from the work of some academics who underline the urgency to address more research from scholars on sales and, at the same time, to consider the growing needs of companies, so as to fill the gap between academic and corporate realities. In this book the author, with different approaches to theoretical analysis, intends to address and explore the many trends that emerge from the academic literature on sales management.

When I first sat to write this book I knew two main things about business: Marketing & Finance. These two are well known in all Academic circles and are very popular on media outlets as TV and Newspapers. From my point of view, the added value in this book is the discussion of two relatively new topics: Supply Chain Management & Sustainability. These two are much less known in the Academic community and are generally less discussed. Readers who find these topics important and innovative, should regard this book as a useful information resource and expand their knowledge.

Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, University of Applied Sciences Ludwigshafen (Institute for International Management Consulting I-IMC), language: English, abstract: In the current financial and economic crisis, public concern of a value-based economic system grows. The demand by politicians, economists and the society for ethics-oriented behaviour in the market increases and thus questions the prevailing system of worldwide managerial capitalism. Especially in Germany, the rising awareness for bad business practices calls for a change in values. This development not only affects the providers of products and services, but also has significant impacts on their strategic and operational advisors: the industry of management consulting. Against this background, the present masters dissertation examines the extent to which the principles of integrative consulting ethics are incorporated in management consulting firms in Germany. To this end, the determinants of awareness, institutionalisation, application and enforcement of ethics integration in organisations are assessed. This work represents the first academic approach to researching the practical application of thoroughly reflected ethics-oriented guidelines and standards in the industry management consulting.After a general introduction into the topic, the theoretical framework research provides the background of the work done in t...

Comprehensive coverage of understanding, prevention, and risk management of extreme drought events, with examples of approaches followed in water-stressed regions This book describes the progress made in our understanding of severe drought and explains how we can deal with—and even avoid—complete devastation brought on by such punishing events. It brings forward advanced knowledge on drought hazard analysis and management, particularly from EU-funded research projects, to assist in the development of the corresponding drought management plans. In addition, this book addresses issues of social vulnerability to drought and science-policy interfaces, which are important elements of drought management. Divided into three sections, this book covers the diagnosis of physical processes, historic drought and the trends in historic drought, and perspectives of future drought. It takes an academic approach to risk evaluation, including characterization of drought episodes, development of indicators of risk in hydrological and agricultural systems, and analysis of the role of socio-economic instruments for risk mitigation. It also discusses the interactions that have resulted in the complex institutional framework, and highlights the importance of stakeholder involvement and awareness building for successful drought management. In addition, Drought: Science and Policy features a collection of case studies that include the description of effective measures taken in the past. Addresses the growing issue of drought preparedness planning, monitoring, and mitigation Teaches methodologies and lessons focused on specific, drought-prone regions so the applications have more significance Provides examples of approaches followed in water-stressed regions (river basin and national scale) with drought analyses at the pan-European scale Drought: Science and Policy will be an invaluable reference for researchers and practitioners in the field as well as Masters students taking relevant courses in drought management and natural disaster management.
