Typology, classification, and characterization of firms for management best practices monitoring (case of russian domestic energy sector)
The notion that certain management practices at all levels create substantial competitive advantages for the company in the market received a lot of attention in the academic community over the years. A large body of work was accumulated as a result, though it appears that a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between management practices and firm performance is still lacking. This study is a part of a larger project aiming at closing this gap. The objective of this study was to create a typology of companies based on efficiency, using a number of objective criteria obtained from publicly available information.
The article suggests and describes a laboratory stand, allowing analysis printed board assembly electronic equipment (low-frequency amplifier) with the aim of monitoring the technical condition and diagnosis. This method has been implemented stand "Troubleshooting Handbook." The stand is designed for laboratory work by students in the course "means and methods of technical diagnostics."
The monograph concerned on the organizational problems of monitoring programs of innovative development at the biggest Russian companies. In the book there is an original methodical approach to managerial accounting, analysis and control of the progress and results of innovation at enterprises. Conception underlines features and level of development of corporate management technology and specific holding structures. Monitoring is considered as a function of strategic control in a large enterprise in the process of innovation.
Issues of ex post evaluation of mergers and antitrust bodies prescriptions are discussed. Among them: interrelation of enactment and enforcement from the perspectives of errors of I and II types in antitrust mergers control; probable consequences of mergers for competition; Аннотации к статьям 206 тьям № 1, 2012 comparative advantages and failures of decision variants available for antitrust bodies; ways of decision-making in expected merger. Also there are issues on efficacy of antimonopoly body decisions taking into account cost of monitoring, sanctioning of mergers participants, including influence on competition condition on relevant markets.
A sensor for detecting plastic explosives placed in the ground is presented in this paper. The detection effect is based on the intensive radiation from the section of a slow-wave structure at slowing down less than slowing of the light in the medium, i.e. in the soil at the place of possible laying of the mines. High effectiveness and small dimensions in comparison to the wavelength in free space and possibility of monitoring at a wide frequency band define its significant advantages in comparison to another devices for detecting explosives.
The system of statistical monitoring in the sphere of education, that was formed within previous years and met well the requirements of the centralized state planning and governance, but it appeared to be outdated in the post-perestroika years and could not adjust to innovative and rapid changes corresponded. For many years HSE Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge has been actively developing scientific and methodology base for information support to education policy-making. One of the most important areas of its activity is modernization of educational statistics. This article covers the evolution of educational statistics methodology in the post-soviet period, as well as recent novelties and key challenges that researchers and statisticians - past, present and future are facing.
Telehealth systems demand standardized solutions to be cost effective and to take advantage of middleware operation and interoperability. The plug-&-play and standard-based platform that, either as individual elements or as components, can be incorporated in a simple way into different homecare environments. Many company, not traditionally involved in medical markets, increasing pressure for a standard for Personal Health Devices (PHD). As a result: ISO/IEEE11073 (X73) standards is adapting from Intensive Unit Care (ICU) scope, focused on the Point-Of-Care (PoC), to Personal Health Devices (PHD), focused on ubiquitous environments, implementing high quality sensors, supporting wireless technologies and providing a faster and more reliable communication network resources. This X73-PHD version is for the homecare challenge and might appear the best-positioned international standards to reach this goal. In this article, a X73 compliant agent and manager communication for homecare platform, as a proof of concept, will be explaining all steps implemented as well as on demand agent specific protocol plugins downloaded to X73 Manager.
Flexible design in contracting may be the next technical evolution that is needed to cope with Information Age levels of complexity and risk. Contract design and management practices that accommodate (or even promote) more flexibility in dealing may be more resilient to inevitable changes. In addition, they may allow innovation and help create new opportunities. Stability remains vital, of course. But greater flexibility is also needed. The key question becomes: How can greater flexibility in contracting be realized while maintaining necessary levels of stability for them to operate legally? In other words, how can better contract design and management simultaneously advance both stability and flexibility? Arguably by three strands of reform coming together: (1) stronger collaborative, or at least more communicative relationships, among the contracting parties and within the organization of each party; (2) far better contract design and information design practices that engage stakeholders, enhance managerial-legal decision-making, and involve communicating contracts differently; and (3) better working relationships between the legal profession and the commercial clients they serve. Our chapter will treat each of those three strands.
In this paper the authors analyze the optimization of public service delivery in Russia. The role of the optimization of administrative processes in the modernization of public administration is also considered; major activities aimed at the optimization of the public services delivery in 2010-2011 are described; some background information for decision making process is revealed; major methods of improving quality and accessibility of public services are analyzed; the key methodological approaches for the reengineering of public services and spheres of government regulations are presented. Basing on the researches conducted, the authors propose the ways of making the activities aimed at the optimization of public services effi cient.
