Taiwan is an island surrounding by ocean. The sports activities of waters will allow people with the functions for recreation activities, economic improvement and increasing employment with the increasing emphasis received recently. The Education Ministry, from 2001 to 2004, had implemented the ¡§Intermediate Term Plan to Improve Swimming Skill of Students below High School¡¨ so that it is expected to improve the basic swimming skill of students. The Ocean Affair Commission of the Executive Yuan also passed the National Ocean Policy Guidelines on November of 2004 and the ocean recreation tourism had become the already-made national policies. In the future, the development for talents of water sports fields will become the critical factor to materialize the relevant policies. Also, schools will be nationally the major locations for swimming sports training and education to play the important role for policy promotion. Under the governmental financial shortage, the swimming pools of schools are now facing the hardship deficient in expenditures, manpower and equipment. It is our consideration that we can conform to the ¡§Promotion Civil Involvement in Public Construction Laws¡¨ to make school sports facilities commissioned to exterior civil organizations for management. Under the painstaking promotion efforts made by the government, so far there have been numerous successful cases, but there are still lots of schools unable to commission to civil business organization. The reason shall be required for comparison analysis. Within this research, through scientific lectures, we can review and summarize the possible factors to affect the successful outsourcing commission cases. We also collect 19 national high schools and vocational high schools with their swimming pools under outsourcing commission management to act as our experimental subjects. Through questionnaire survey answered by school administrative staffs and civil business organizations, we attempt to understand the actual promotion results and possible improvement ways in the future management. Also, we try to find out the critical factors to reach any outsourcing commission management of school swimming pools so that our research can be available for the reference for some schools which are willing to implement the outsourcing commission management of swimming pools. Through the frequency distribution and cross comparison analysis, we compare the results between failure and success cases. We finally find that the critical factors to affect the successful outsourcing commission cases for swimming pool management from high schools and vocational high school including aggressive contact and solicit possible candidates for outsourcing commission cases, overall and wholesome basic facilities of swimming pools, prevalent market conditions, prudent selection for outsourcing commission methods, democratic decision-making models, the local governmental emphasis on students' swimming skill training and the business management contents, totally 7 factors.

Managerial competencies for information systems project success : development of a theoretical model and a proposed empirical investigation framework

Zainuddin, Eruani 11 1900 (has links)
This study examines the link between managerial competencies and Information Systems outsourcing (ISO) project success under different types of outsourcing relationships. At present, ISO is a multi-billion dollar industry, and has spawned a new industry related to the management of outsourcing contracts. At the micro-level, ISO offers firms economic, strategic, and technical benefits. Various academic and industry publications have observed the critical importance of managerial competencies in influencing ISO project success. Yet, research that investigates the relationship between managerial competencies and ISO project success is scant. In this study, we developed a theoretical model along with a set of propositions that can be empirically tested. The model and propositions are based on theories that stem from economics (Transaction Cost Economics and Agency Theory), strategic management (core competence, and Resource-based View), and social (Relational Exchange Theory and Social Exchange Theory) perspectives. We also proposed an investigation framework utilizing the case study approach to guide future empirical studies. Our theoretical model and propositions indicate different patterns of managerial competencies for the client and vendor project managers within the different types of ISO relationships. Apart from an empirical study based on our theoretical model and propositions, future research can adapt and/or extend the model to study knowledge residing in other project stakeholders such as project directors, or to study other outsourcing context such as offshore outsourcing projects.

Outsourcing - hur ser det ut? : En studie om två företag

Lännstig, Michael, Moberg, Daniel January 2017 (has links)
Outsourcingens framfart som affärsstrategi under de senaste decennierna går inte att förbise. Outsourcing innebär att ett företag att överlåter delar av sin verksamhet till ett annat företag vilket också är utgångspunkten för denna studie. I denna studie redovisas två intervjuer med olika företag som använt sig av leverantörer för att tillgodose behovet av kvalificerade respektive okvalificerade tjänster. Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur dessa företag har arbetat med outsourcing samt med relationen till leverantören. Anledningen till att relationen var en utgångspunkt för studien är för att det anses vara en av de största svårigheterna att arbeta med. Mer specifikt är det kontrollen som oroar företagen vid outsourcing, så i denna studie var det en aspekt som undersöktes. I den teoretiska genomgången framgick det att det var tre väsentliga moment i arbetet kring outsourcing: Identifiera behov, identifiera anledning och relation. Båda företagen använder sig av ett tillvägagångssätt i arbetet kring outsourcing som liknar det som beskrivs i teorin. Den största skillnaden som går att utläsa mellan företagen är hur de arbetar med relationen till leverantören. En slutsats som dras efter denna studie är att ju mer kvalificerad tjänsten är, desto mindre kontroll har företaget över arbetsuppgiften.

An investigation into the cycle and prediction of organisation facility management procurement.

Luciani, Paul J. January 2007 (has links)
University of Technology, Sydney. Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building. / Note: Thesis restricted to on campus access. Facility Management (FM) is an emerging industry in Australia and in various nations throughout the world. The annual Australian national investment of the FM industry contributes approximately 4% to GDP and there are more than 404,000 people working in FM service industries. Some conjecture exists to whether or not FM is a discipline in its own right. However, a review of FM history reveals its existence embedded within various organisational operating environments, however, under differing labels. The creation of an acceptable global FM definition is yet to be achieved. The procuring and delivering of FM services is an activity that is predominantly managed from inside an organisation through direct employment (in-house), or by others outside the organisation (outsourcing). The latter has gained considerable popularity of late, yet it is argued that it remains an ill-defined term, resulting in its possible incorrect application to the FM function. Further, there has been some suggestion as to the existence of indiscriminate cycling through these two main forms of FM procurement and delivery methods by organisations that has attracted some debate. Limited research has been performed on the dynamics associated with the decision to manage FM in-house or to outsource the function. It is argued that on a medium to long-term basis there may exist an inadequacy in identifying and associating the drivers of value and costs, as they are perceived by organizations, for the two main procurement and delivery methods of FM. By researching organisational operating environments it was found that in-house and outsourced methods may have different cost and value drivers. Further, each method, under certain conditions, was found to produce a different set of percieved value and costs, seemingly independent from each other. Also, these operating environments seemed to change over time, influencing the percieved FM value and cost levels. This apparent link with organisational operating environments and perceived FM procurement and delivery value and cost suggests that neither method may be regarded as a permanent solution. Thus, under certain conditions, the dynamic alteration of outsourcing levels during these changes in organisational operating environments may capture this value for longer periods of time, whilst minimising the costs associated with FM procurement and delivery.

Hur säkerställs effekten av marknadsföring när den outsourcas?

Thulin, Gustaf, Brandt, Rasmus Unknown Date (has links)
<p>Outsourcing is today a common phenomenon among businesses in most industries. The term outsourcing means transferring the responsibility of performing a certain function to an external supplier. </p><p>There are usually certain methods to investigate the effects and the outcome of a function that is performed by the company itself. When this function is performed by an external party, the complexity of the function will increase.</p><p>This leads us to our purpose: </p><p>Based on different theories clarify how a company ensures a desired effect out of marketing when this function is outsourced to a certain retail- and advertising agency.</p><p>In this essay we have defined us to study one of Sweden´s leading mobile operators who have outsourced their sales management to a retail- and advertising agency. </p><p>To get an additional point of view, we have included one of the mobile operator´s intermediates, which is a selling agent whose sales function is led by the retail- and advertising agency.</p>
