From limitless excitement to structural comfort : A case study on the transitional process of an organization going from being a project organization to a permanent public institutionHelgesen, Katrine January 2011 (has links)
That change processes are exciting but sometimes hard to implement for organizations is a known fact. But the change process that I am looking into in this study is beyond hard, as this was change that had to be implemented no matter what. This is the story about the project organization whose sole purpose was to create a permanent organization and then almost over night changed into a permanent, operating organization and with the major differences that entailed. What inspired me to do this research was most and foremost a self-experienced life as a ”project worker” for the same operating field as the case organization. The thrill of always stepping into unfamiliar territory and hardly ever having to do things two times was almost addictive. And it was the individual human aspect of this change that caught my interest for this study. How did they experience this massive change and, did they learn from it and how? And as we are all different as human beings, so was each experience different. After a series of two interviews per informant, conducted two years apart, emerged seven categories from the data analysis that had impacts on their experience, two transition categories and five learning categories. For transition emerged the categories of awareness of change and grief process. For learning emerged framework/ structure, psychological ownership, goal orientation/vision, interpersonal relationships and leadership as categories having an impact on their experiences. I used the results from the data analysis and discussed these with the background of different theoretical perspectives. To cover the vast area of aspects that emerged, I have used theoretical perspectives about project organizations vs. permanent organizations, organizational transitions, learning in organizations, psychological ownership, leadership and vision and goal orientation. My three very different informants had also very different roles in the organization and different private situations, which had an impact on their experienced outcomes of the process. For the category goal orientation/ vision my findings suggested that common for all three of them, however, was a lack of an experienced vision bringing them beyond the launch of the project and into the new permanent organization. With such a vision, transforming from project to permanent organization might have been a smoother process.

The advancement of time has expedited the transfer of information, and the speed of technology evolution has also increased. Business enterprises can continue to increase its organization performance through organization innovation. Therefore organization innovation is the key success factor of future business enterprises. However, organization innovation is grounded on organization culture. Hence the research problem of this study is the influence of organization culture and innovation on performance. Companies in the Kaohsiung County and City were studied. Through questionnaire survey and data analysis, the following results were found: 1. Respondents expressed positive viewpoints toward influence of organization culture and innovation on performance. With respect to organization culture, bureaucratic and supportive types of culture showed more significant influence than innovative culture on organization performance. 2. The operation of organization culture and innovation showed positive influence on organization performance. The more emphasis is placed on the operation of organization culture and innovation, the more that a business enterprise can nurture its core competence and hence enhance its organization performance. ¡iKey Words¡j: Organization Culture, Organization Innovation, Organization Performance
This thesis deals with the socio-religious role of the Muhammadiyah movement from 1912 to 1990. The study analyzes the fundamental ideology of the movement, and its implementation in the religious and social life of the Indonesians. Its religious outlook illustrates its character as a purifying movement which is devoted to performing religious practice ('ibadah) based on the authentic sources. At the same time it also provides ideas which enable the movement to encourage moral reform and yet which are adaptable to contemporary conditions. The ideas manifest themselves in the form of various religious activities of dakwah (propagation), and a great number of educational institutions and social endeavors. The importance of the Muhammadiyah movement lies in its significant contribution in bringing about profound changes in the religious, social, and educational aspects of the Indonesian Muslim's life.

Materials Digital Library, Kent State University / Materials Property Data Markup Language (MatML) provides detailed materials property information necessary for the exchange of materials science digital resources among users. Dublin Core (DC) provides a consistent generic characterization of content important for resource discovery. The feasibility of reusing detailed information provided by MatML to supply DC metadata is explored. Preliminary data gathered from three examples of materials science resources indicates that MatML tags may be successfully mapped to DC elements. A prototype webbased authoring tool designed to assist authors in generating MatML as well as to map MatML information to DC elements is discussed.
