Subsidiarity: Challenging The Top Down Bias, Scott Kelley 2009 DePaul University

Subsidiarity: Challenging The Top Down Bias, Scott Kelley

Scott Kelley

Global poverty has received significant attention in the past decade, particularly after the adoption of the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals in 2002. Commentators and ethicists like Peter Singer have long held that the wealthy of the world have an obligation to help the poor. While the sentiments may be positive, there are real harms that have come from this kind of top down thinking. Subsidiarity, to the contrary, is a much more realistic and morally tenable approach to global poverty.

Controlled Language - Does My Company Need It?, Uwe Muegge 2009 Selected Works

Controlled Language - Does My Company Need It?, Uwe Muegge

Uwe Muegge

A controlled language is a natural language, as opposed to an artificial or constructed language. Natural languages such as English or German are languages that are used by humans for general communication. A controlled language differs from the general language in two significant ways: 1. The grammar rules of a controlled language are typically more restrictive than those of the general language. 2. The vocabulary of a controlled language typically contains only a fraction of the words that are permissible in the general language.

Through the research, major points found in articles highlight decision making, learning leadership execution through educational means, and leadership in the military to include large corporate organizations.

Le decisioni su come orientare il cambiamento del sistema produttivo in Europa devono essere riportate all’interno della sfera pubblica, con una nuova generazione di politiche per l’industria e l’innovazione, - più democratiche e trasparenti di quelle del passato - a partire dalle tecnologie dell’informazione, dall’ambiente e dalla salute


Innovation And Employment: A Reinvestigation Using Revised Pavitt Classes, Mario Pianta, Francesco Bogliacino 2009 Università degli Studi di Urbino Carlo Bo

Innovation And Employment: A Reinvestigation Using Revised Pavitt Classes, Mario Pianta, Francesco Bogliacino

Mario Pianta

The relationship between innovation and employment is addressed in this article through a model and empirical test at industry level for eight European countries in 1994–2004. We investigate this relationship for manufacturing and services and propose a Revised Pavitt taxonomy (covering both of them) in order to identify specific patterns of technological change and job creation and loss. The contrasting effects of strategies of technological or cost competitiveness are investigated using innovation variables from CIS2 and CIS3. Together with demand, wages and industry dynamics, they account for changes in employees and hours worked. The diversity in these relations across industries …

Le Politiche Industriali Del Xxi Secolo, Mario Pianta

Mario Pianta

Le economie moderne evolvono di continuo, con attività private e pubbliche che nascono e muoiono in tutti i settori, ma alcuni cambiamenti – legati alla struttura dell’economia – sono di grande rilievo e di difficile realizzazione. Esempi di queste trasformazioni sono: il progressivo passaggio dall’agricoltura allo sviluppo industriale nei Paesi più poveri; il declino dell’industria tradizionale e lo sviluppo di servizi avanzati nei Paesi più ricchi; il passaggio da sistemi produttivi basati sulla meccanica e la chimica a un’economia dominata dalle tecnologie dell’informazione e comunicazione; la necessità di rendere la produzione sostenibile dal punto di vista ambientale. Dopo due secoli …

This article describes the environment in which libraries are operating and identifies the key trends driving change in metadata creation and management. It also outlines the characteristics of a next-generation metadata creation and management platform for libraries, which the OCLC cooperative is planning, to …

Changing Times And The Organisational Life Cycle, Graeme Cocks, Delyth Samuel 2009 Melbourne Business School

Changing Times And The Organisational Life Cycle, Graeme Cocks, Delyth Samuel

Graeme Cocks

All things go through a lifecycle. Organisations make mistakes. No organisation is perfect. All organisations, even winning ones, go backwards at some time in their lives. New businesses emerge from new ideas, grow, become mature and decline, unless new ideas reinvigorate them and fuel further growth. Companies go out of business over time as their operating environment changes and they fail to respond to the changes, whilst other businesses start up, taking advantage of the very factors that caused one business to close in order to grow their own. Sustained strong performance over time, through the changing lifecycle of the …
