Description : Research Methodology remains a vital issue at the heart of all scholarly activity. Without a proper appreciation of Research Methodology and its correct application academic progress is not possible. One of the problems which Research Methodology offers the learner is the very wide range of options which are frequently available with which to answer a research question and this high level of choice can lead to indecision and sometimes confusion. This book is a compilation of a number of important papers on this subject selected by two leaders in this field of study. A wide range of topic have been chosen which lead the reader through some of the more important considerations in the field. The book is designed to help with this type of problem and the the current selection of papers which highlight a variety of research questions, problems and issues and an accompanying range of research methods and methodological discussions. Their authors have stated the research positions they have adopted and respective levels of justification and knowledge forms have been presented. These range from those forms of knowledge that might be found of use to practitioners to those that are more philosophically or academically inclined. A certain level of research impact is either implied or overtly presented in the selected papers. This book is an important text for academics, researchers and students as well as those interested in using research from a commercial point of view.

Description : CONCEPTS OF CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY, Ninth Edition, provides comprehensive coverage and the latest information on a full spectrum of substance use disorders and the compounds commonly abused. Topics include the abuse of and addiction to alcohol; how the active agent in marijuana, THC, affects neural growth and development; the emerging body of evidence suggesting a relationship between marijuana abuse and psychotic disorders; the emerging body of evidence suggesting that marijuana is not as benign as it was thought to be a few years ago; and the abuse of cough syrups. Adding to the book's usefulness and relevance, Doweiko also covers topics not usually discussed in other substance abuse texts, including abuse of anabolic steroids, inhalants, infectious diseases associated with substance abuse, how the “war on drugs” has actually contributed to the problem of substance abuse/addiction in this country, and the “medical marijuana” debate. This edition includes new information on synthetic marijuana, mephredone, and dextromethorphan, among other substances; updates reflecting the new DSM-5; and a new chapter on the Biopsychosocial Model of Addiction. Students report that they appreciate the author's balanced approach, which allows them to form their own opinions, in contrast to some books that “preach” that “drugs are bad for you.” Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

Description : Trust, both interpersonal trust, and trust in institutions, is a key ingredient of growth, societal well-being and governance. As a first step to improving existing measures of trust, the OECD Guidelines on Measuring Trust provide international recommendations on collecting, publishing, and analysing trust data to encourage their use by National Statistical Offices (NSOs). The Guidelines also outline why measures of trust are relevant for monitoring and policy making, and why NSOs have a critical role in enhancing the usefulness of existing trust measures. Besides looking at the statistical quality of trust measures, best approaches for measuring trust in a reliable and consistent way and guidance for reporting, interpretation and analysis are provided. A number of prototype survey modules that national and international agencies can use in their household surveys are included. These Guidelines have been produced as part of the OECD Better Life Initiative, a pioneering project launched in 2011, with the objective to measure society’s progress across eleven domains of well-being. They complement a series of similar measurement guidelines on subjective well-being, micro statistics on household wealth, integrated analysis of the distribution on household income, consumption and wealth, as well as the quality of the working environment.

Description : Given users’ heavy reliance of modern communication technologies such as mobile and tablet devices, laptops, computers, and social media networks, workplace cyberbullying and online harassment have become escalating problems around the world. Organizations of all sizes and sectors (public and private) may encounter workplace cyberbullying within and outside the boundaries of physical offices.

The book takes a look at bullying behavior across a variety of industries, including government and educational institutions, and examines social and legislative issues, policies and legal cases, the impact of online harassment and disruption of business processes and organizational culture, and prevention techniques. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as sexual abuse and trolling, this book is ideally designed for business managers and executives, human resource managers, practitioners, policymakers, academicians, researchers, and students.

These ideas from Dr. Seiffertt’s Osteopathic Internal Medicine practice are helpful no matter what stage of life or health you find yourself in, whether you have just been diagnosed with cancer, a chronic illness like diabetes, or simply don’t feel as healthy as you might: living in greater health is always possible.

Description : A fundamental challenge that management faces in the twenty-first century is how to exercise adequate control, i. e. how to guide and direct the behaviour of their subordinates. With increasing globalisation firms witness a cross-cultural impact too. Of particular interest is the question of whether to use the standardized form of control similar to the home base of firms or whether to adapt their control practices to the local specificities. Given the meagre state of the literature in management control with a cross-cultural emphasis, this study addresses a real world problem, namely the question whether management control practices are configured similarly or differently across cultures. Relying on a generalized industry sample across four countries (Belgium, Canada, Germany and Poland), this study sought to shed light on one of the more intriguing questions – “does culture matter” – for specific control areas, in particular for performance measurement, performance evaluation and reward systems. The theoretical foundations are grounded in the cultural framework of the GLOBE project accompanied by thoughts of new institutionalism, stakeholder theory and contingency thoughts. Hypotheses are tested by mean comparisons (ANOVA, ANCOVA). The empirical findings highlight cultural differences for a broader set of control practices and deliver new insights into the intersection of culture and management control. This dissertation crafts a novel topic with high relevance for both researchers and practitioners. The study demonstrates areas for which management control practices should be adapted to the local needs and areas for which those practices could be harmonized in the whole company. This monograph stresses some areas in which future empirical cross-cultural research can benefit, and some areas where conceptual thoughts could be advanced.

Description : Information is one of the key enablers of modern business. The ever expanding availability of digital information, however, brings with it the challenge of handling this information appropriately. While related challenges now appear in our daily lives, this is even more the case along supply chains, where a multitude of actors is involved. This doctoral thesis addresses the topic by linking theoretical rigor with practical relevance. By assessing the current state of research in supply chain management represented in literature reviews, a range of under-represented areas of research as well as potential future research directions in the field of supply chain management are identified. Focusing on one selected exemplary under-represented area of research, the thesis takes the digital business transformation perspective, portraying the value and role of digital information in a business function context. As research on the intersection of Big Data Analytics and supply chain management is still scarce, the conceptual work offers first insights into an emerging topic, both on the internal operations level and on the supply chain level. This is beneficial from a scientific as well as a managerial perspective, as a thorough understanding of the constituents of a digital ecosystem is a key ingredient for the competitiveness and overall productivity of the company and ultimately of the supply chain as a whole.
