Reflexivity in business: Review on the best practices of S-BPM approach application
Boosting motivation is a challenging task on the way of additional productivity, especially considering new generations Y and Z. In this paper we combine set of methods from process management, pedagogics and psychology to develop an interactive gamification process and test it for generations Y and Z currently studying in the leading Russian university. The efficiency of approach is demonstrated on several models and authors suggest ways how to implement them.
The article based on the Russian National Corpus and Internet usage analyses functioning of colloquial verbs 'ubirat's'a' and 'igrat's'a'; types of meanings and pecularities of contextual usage of these units traditionally interpreted as non-normative are under scrutiny; the usage of reflexives that refer and do not refer to the initial transitive verbs they are formed from is compared. According to S.Sai, the functioning of Russian reflexive verbs system is determined not only by semantic relations that link certain reflexive verbs with their non-reflexive derivational bases, but also by associative relations within different semantic groups of reflexive verbs, irrespective of their derivational characteristics. The article attempts to clarify if there are reasons to reject the verb “igrat’sya” as incorrect on the basis of its derivational base “igrat’” being intransitive verb. Other reflexive verbs motivated by intransitive verbs are analyzed including reflexives created occasionally by analogy with normative derivatives. In this analysis we apply S.P.Obnorsky’s idea on “-sya” as intransitivity marker making this meaning morphologically expressed. Most probably such verbs as “igrat’sya” and “ubirat’sya” belong to colloquial register, implement natural Russian linguistic system potentiality and are more or less explicitly differentiated from their derivational bases in terms of semantics and pragmatics.
Human rationality is often assumed to be based on the logical relation of transitivity. Yet, although transitivity fits relationships between physical objects or human decisions about targets that are independent of one another, it fails to fit the phenomena of systemic and developmental organization. Intransitivity has been shown to be present in various kinds of systems, ranging from the brain to society. In cyclical systems transitivity constitutes a special case of intransitivity. In this chapter, we examine different forms of emergence of intransitivity cycles, fixation of transitive parts in these cycles, and the organization of different levels of reflexivity within the systems. We conclude that reflexivity of cognitive processes—rather than transitivity in specific forms of thought—is the defining criterion of rationality.
Despite of the growing popularity and maturity of BPM on the global arena, for the past two decades Russia and the whole Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) region have fallen behind Western developed economies in terms of adopting BPM concept. From an empirical point of view, it is crucial to determine the current status of BPM in Russian practice and research and derive future goals for research and technology transfer. Therefore, this paper analyzes the
current state of BPM in the Russian market and attempts to answer the questions: (1) What is the current status of BPM practice and research in Russia? (2) What is the possible future development of BPM in Russia?
This volume collects all scientific contributions to the workshops at S-BPM ONE 2018. During the conference, they are presented and discussed jointly with practitioners’ contributions in a series of interactive half-day workshops.
By defining the structure of thought and psyche content it has been indicated that the consciousness is the functional element of the psyche actualized by a subject to organize its life activity. The thought with its operations is considered as the mechanism of consciousness. It has been argued that the reflection is put on the thinking and there is no reason to consider it separately from thought. In keeping with this argumentation it has shown that all cognitive processes could be divided into two categories: the processes that support the mental activity and the processes that acts as the mechanisms of that support. Based on the investigation of thought and mind relationship the psychological content interpretation of such operation as the judgment, mental decision, and reasoning
BPM research has been of great importance in Germany since the early 1990s. In Russia, increased competition and new IT possibilities have only recently forced both companies and governmental institutions to start taking benefits from BPM. Against this background, the workshop PropelleR 2012 brought together German and Russian BPM researchers as well as practitioners in order to discuss recent BPM trends and challenges. The guiding question addressed by PropelleR 2012 was: “How can the growing complexity of business processes in German-Russian relations be addressed by a holistic BPM approach?” This report includes a set of articles that reflect the PropelleR workshop participants’ viewpoints on this question.
The paper discusses the phenomenon of self-reflection as a philosophical issue, as an object of psychological investigation and as a characteristic of human existence. The paper is focused on the problem of ambivalence of self-reflective processes. Some studies highlight the connection of self-reflection with depression, neuroticism and pessimism while other works underline the positive role of self-reflection in adjustment and self-regulation processes. To resolve this contradiction a differential model of self-reflection which distinguishes several types of reflective self-attitude including types supporting and hindering effective self-regulation of life activity is proposed.
