Системная концепция контроллинга как проявление экономико-организационных теорий управления
The basic processes influencing the formation of modern concept of controlling are considered. Fundamental restrictions of the controlling concept are described. The system concept of controlling is argued as the scientific basis of controlling in circumstances of today.
In sport tournaments, the rules are presumably structured in a way that any participant cannot benefit by losing instead of winning. We show that tournament systems, consisting of multiple round-robin and knockout tournaments with noncumulative prizes, which are ubiquitous around the world, are generically incentive incompatible. We use our model to discuss potential remedies and applications.
International Scientific and Practical Conference "Green economy is the future of humanity" is aimed at finding solutions to create stable and efficient model of economy; the basis for such economy model is the country's transfer to the stable path of development.
Prof. Mizruchi was interviewed by Igor Chirikov, senior research fellow at the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow. In the interview, Prof. Mizruchi was asked about the evolution of his research interests and peculiarities of his approach to teaching organizational theory. Prof. Mizruchi also described how he became acquainted with organizational sociology. Within his winding career trajectory from Statistical Analyst at Albert Einstein College of Medicine to Professor of Sociology at the University of Michigan, Mark Mizruchi has witnessed the development of both organizational theory and sociology of organizations and their division into institutionally separate subfields. Whether such fragmentation is methodologically important, it certainly affects the teaching process of organizational theories to students and the future of the whole field by shifting its research focus from broad and theoretical issues to more narrow and applied problems. In addition, Prof. Mizruchi shared the main ideas of his recent award-winning book (The Fracturing of the American Corporate Elite) and details of the creative writing process. In the final part of the conversation, Prof. Mizruchi told the story of how the Interdisciplinary Committee on Organizational Studies (ICOS) was established and how it influences research and teaching processes at the University of Michigan.
The paper codifies the theoretical perspectives in sociology of organizations related to studies in organizational boundaries. Four methods for conceptualizing organizational boundaries are identified, depending on a key metaphor which each method proposes. The presented metaphors include (1) boundary as membrane (flap); (2) boundary as convention; (3) boundary as interface; (4) boundary as forefront. In addition, the paper discusses the organizational perspectives’ general methodological drawbacks in studying organizational boundaries.
Optimization, simulation and control are very powerful tools in engineering and mathematics, and play an increasingly important role. Because of their various real-world applications in industries such as finance, economics, and telecommunications, research in these fields is accelerating at a rapid pace, and there have been major algorithmic and theoretical developments in these fields in the last decade.
This volume brings together the latest developments in these areas of research and presents applications of these results to a wide range of real-world problems.- Collection of selected contributions giving a state-of-the-art account of recent developments in the field - Covers a broad range of topics in optimization and optimal control, including unique applications - Written by an international group of experts in their respective disciplines - Broad audience of researchers, practitioners, and advanced graduate students in applied mathematics and engineering
The interaction of knowledge, methods, theories and doctrines is common nowadays, and the necessity of complex use of methods and analytical instruments in different spheres of scientific research is internationally recognized. Cognitive linguistics and science of terminology are not exceptions. The actual research undertakes analysis of the lexeme “consideration”, using a combination of two analytical methods: cognitive and semantic approach, specifically the method of defining the substantial core, and systems approach, particularly, neurological levels of Bateson&Dilts. The interest to the word “consideration” is based on the peculiarity of its functioning: it is a common word in General English and a legal term in Legal English, a key concept of legal sphere, fundamental principal, prerequisite and doctrine in English contract law. Consequently, the complex analysis of the word is supposed to be promising. The article analyses the lexeme both as a common word and a legal term. Within the research frame, the substantial cores of the word and the term are revealed, and correlation between the meanings, the substantial cores and the neurological levels of Bateson&Dilts is determined. This complex approach is supposed to clarify the peculiarities of terms’ functioning in legal contexts and the reasons of conflicting viewpoints on terms comprehension.
