KVINNOR ÄR SÄLLAN ”BARA” KVINNOR : en kvinnofokuserad intersektionell studie av två läroböcker i ämnena historia och engelska

Vodenicarevic, Alma, Roos, Christina January 2013 (has links)
In this study we have analysed from an intersectional perspective two textbooks Historia 1b and Progress Gold A which are purposed to be used as teaching material in Swedish schools in the subjects of History and English. Our question and reason for doing the analysis is to emphasise and make the variety of women in the books visible in order to compare that variety to the one that is demanded by the Swedish curriculum. The analysis is made from an ideology critical perspective and contains quantitative elements. Our conclusion is that the material contains both excluding and including features. Some intersectional categories are well represented while others, like functionality and religion, are not. This has a direct effect on the possibility to discover variation amongst the women represented in the material. Previous research states that it is not enough to leave the descriptions without problematizing them, which we found incoherent with the analysed books.

A Collaborated Design Approach of Business Process on e-Enterprises

Huang, Yen-Tai 11 July 2002 (has links)
Global competition and electronic business is the inevitable for enterprises in the twenty-one century. Information technology for enterprises is just tools. According to an enterprise¡¦s role that is played in its supply chain and functions that is providing products¡¦ value, an enterprise apply business process design should display the advantage of electronic business. According to the Value System and the Supply Chain macro view, the research analyzed business processes and proposed a business process design approach, named ¡§Collaborated Design Approach of Business Process¡¨, to apply to enterprises collaboration and electronic business. Five steps composed the approach. The first step is Value System analysis to define the Value System, critical activities and linkages. And according that, the research defined the architecture of business core processes and linkages. The secondary step is business core process design. Based on the Value chain, the research explored the relations between demands, supplies and control, and proposed business processes integrated design directions. The third step is an analytic characteristic of supply chain. The research analyzed the supply chain variations with business process design. The forth step is processes simulated and analytic. The research simulated and evaluated the supply chain variations with business process design. The fifth step is the process operational strategy. The ¡§Process operational strategy matrix¡¨ that presented by the research, the research proposed suggestions of inbound and outbound logistics process operational strategies. The research use the supply chain of a famous brand sports shoes company as case study to instructed how to apply the ¡¨Collaborated Design Approach of Business Process¡¨.

The side effects of goal setting related to value system in systems thinking approach

Lin, Wei-Chih 27 July 2004 (has links)
There are rare studies referred to how to set goal more effectively in systemic view. The purpose of this article will articulate how to set a goal in order to strive for the level of life. 2nd, it will show us what a healthy person is and how to be. 3rd, trying to use the method of systems thinking to improve the quality of goal setting and to make good decisions. The upper level of goal is mentioned about what we live for. In this article we will explore what dose life mean and the specific norms of value system from the perspective of philosophy, especially in the moral choices of self-actualized person and the tests of energy level by Kinesiology. Finally, there are three conclusions by using the systems archetypes as a carrier: 1.Hold on the life goal: always allocate a certain ratio of resources to life goal to avoid being eroded by other objectives. 2.Take value system into consideration: goal setting should be guided by value system, and also take other¡¦s goal into account. 3.Choose the fundamental solution: adopt transformational learning as the fundamental solution to assist in goal setting in order to strive for the level of life of human being.

A Factor Analytic Study of the Construct Validity of Three Value Analysis Instruments

Evans, Ann Marie 08 1900 (has links)
This study used component R-analysis factor technique with orthagonal rotation to investigate the construct validity of the Values for Working, Values for Teaching, and Values for Helpers value system analysis instruments, by a factor analysis of the items on each. Random selection was used to compile a sample of 100 for each. Items measured tribalism, existentialism, sociocentrism, egocentrism, and manipulativeness on the first test, egocentrism and existentialism on the second, and only two items, measuring egocentrism, on the third. The study recommends that other items be eliminated or revised, and that data be reanalyzed for the presence of higher order or obligque factors corresponding to the value systems.

A Strategic Study Base on Value System for the Interaction With the Multi tier E Supply Chain -A Case Study of Three tier Chemical Engineering Industry

Tsai, Hung-Jou 18 July 2002 (has links)
Abstract The main purpose of this study is to conjecture the change of relative advantages and their interactive relationship during the three-tier supply chain. Based on this change and interactive relationship, strategically formed methods and models are developed. The three-tier supply chain is mainly defined as global brand marketing companies, OEM/ODM manufacturers, and raw material suppliers. In this study, the OEM/ODM manufacturers, which are the middle-tier, are selected as the research subject of target enterprises. The proposed analytical method, which mainly focuses on the interactive transformation of QFD relative matrix, is the basis for the strategic development of the OEM/ODM manufacturers. And we also adopt practical three-tier cases to test and verify, through verification of this strategy by simulation models. The results show that the strategy formed based on the model developed is capable to produce acceptable suggestions for the OEM/ODM manufacturers.

Feng, Yu-ting 27 January 2003 (has links)

Chapter Four is to analyze the theme of urban and rural conflicts in Shen¡¦s novels, which may inherit from the tradition of realistic literature, to compare similarity and dissimilarity of the important local realistic literature in 1920s or 1930s, and to explore how the author and the social collective keep objectivism and subjectivism in balance, thereby evaluating the status of Shen¡¦s novels in early Chinese literature.

Lost in Translation: An Exploration of Professional Values in Cross-cultural Design Practice

Liu, Lian 15 May 2013 (has links)
Globalization has drawn Canadian design firms to projects in many parts of the world and cross-cultural design projects are now a significant part of landscape architecture practice. However, currently there are few studies that discuss the issues and challenges associated with these projects. Through exploring the relationship between professional values and the design process, this research intended to identify issues and provide resolutions associated with cross-cultural design projects. A literature review and interviews of experienced design professionals show that professional values affect the design process. In a cross-cultural design project, different value systems from multiple cultures interact and influence each other, creating issues and challenges, but also inspiring new design ideas. The research suggests that understanding values and the professional value system could help landscape architects identify issues and improve both the processes and the products of cross-cultural design projects.
