Six Sigma has had a substantial impact on the way many businesses are run today. Companies that adopt Six Sigma send a strong message to their customers and shareholders that they are committed to delivering the highest quality product and service at competitive prices. Such companies commit people, time and resources to looking at the issues of the business with the view of developing long term, sustainable improvements. It is this level of commitment combined with a rigorous improvement methodology and the focus on customers that distinguishes Six Sigma from other improvement initiatives. Over the years, Six Sigma has become commonplace in a variety of industries both operational and service oriented in nature. This has been in response to the intensely competitive environment that most businesses today operate in. This book provides a framework on how companies can apply Six Sigma methodologies to where it can make the biggest difference, to drive growth. The approach outlined enables companies to focus their Six Sigma initiatives on growth by expanding its scope from continuous improvement to one of continuous innovation. It applies the structured Six Sigma methodology to understanding customers and their problems in depth, so that companies can continuously work to offer product and services that customer's value. It is aimed at helping companies with existing Six Sigma initiatives to focus them towards growth as well as to help non-Six Sigma companies enhance their Sales and Marketing efforts by giving them the Six Sigma tool set

Публикация посвящена вопросам влияния структуры межорганизационных связей на получение премий. Основываясь на нескольких теориях обучения и принятия решений, авторы предлагают модель того, как фирмы учатся, перенимая опыт у своих сетевых партнеров. У такого заимствования опыта есть вероятность уклона, особенно если другие фирмы в этой же сети не обладают достаточно разнообразным опытом. Уклон при заимствовании опыта влияет на качество решений фирмы. Авторы проверили эту модель эмпирически, изучая влияние разнообразия опыта сетевого партнера на фирму, перенимающую решения. Используя данные по премиям, связанным с приобретением, и по успехам покупателя на фондовой бирже за период с 1986 по 1997 гг., было обнаружено, что фирмы, которых с другими фирмами связывает предшествующий разнообразный опыт премирования, принимают более удачные закупочные решения (напр., они меньше платят за приобретение), чем фирмы, которых с другими фирмами связывает однотипный опыт. У фирм, имеющих множественные взаимосвязи с партнерами, выигрыш оказывается еще больше. Результаты данного исследования помогают понять влияние потоков информации, идущей по сетям фирм, на качество решений отдельной фирмы. Авторы также подкрепляют институциональную теорию, предлагая альтернативную модель подражательной деятельности фирм и показывая, что в некоторых случаях фирмы могут совершенствоваться на опыте своих партнеров.

This book focuses on the way people are developed at work; the skills that are encouraged, the way they are controlled and the implications they have for the people who possess and exercise them. Taking a critical perspective, Skill, Training and Human Resource Development draws on a wide range of research and covers an array of organizational practices - from managing culture and emotional labour to job design and qualifications - and adeptly considers the implications of these for the people involved.

"First published in 1958, "Small Town in Mass Society" set community studies on a new course by placing the small town within the framework of large-scale, bureaucratic mass society. Drawing attention to the dynamics of class and ethnicity in relation to economics and politics, this landmark work was among the first to document the consequences of centralized administration on life in American communities. Through a close study of ""Springdale, New York,"" Arthur J. Vidich and Joseph Bensman depict the small town as continuously and increasingly drawn into the central institutions and processes of the total society. Vidich and Bensman based their conclusions on extensive interviews with and close observation of the inhabitants of one community. The original publication of the book caused a sharp response among the town's citizens who felt their trust had been violated and their town misrepresented. The present volume includes the editorials and correspondence evoked by that controversy, the authors' articles describing their methodology, a new foreword by Michael W. Hughey, and a new afterword in which Arthur J. Vidich recounts the creation and history of the book."

This study aims at assessing the costs and benefits of multifunctional agriculture, and it is one of the very first studies using a quantitative approach to this new subject. The starting point is that if current farm subsidies are regarded as means to maintain the multifunctional characteristics of agriculture, what happens if subsidies are reduced. The effects of the decline in agricultural support on multifunctional characteristics of agriculture in Finland are estimated using the cost-benefit analysis (CBA). Only a part of the consequences can be assessed by the CBA due to lack of data on the economic value of many elements of multifunctional agriculture. Hence, the results should not be generalised too strongly, but they still provide useful information for the political decisionmaking.

Concerning further research, we should study, inter alia, what the so-called correct level of compensation for the adequate supply of public goods would be, and what kind of means of agricultural policy are the most efficient to unambiguously enhance the multifunctional character of agriculture.

The paper tries to provide some arguments in favour of the necessity to include soft dimensions like a social network perspective to enriche discussion about business start-ups. The creation of a venture is not only based on traditional key elements as labour, capital and technology but also on social assets which are commonly called social capital. The analysis of social capital in the framework of the establishment of new corporations gives a convincing example for the need of further socioeconomic research. Social network analysis can enrich traditional economic research and can highlight limitations of pure neo-classic thought.

This book is concerned with the significance of time in work and everyday life. The contributors are among the foremost authorities in the field, and their up-to-date contributions consider the changing social meanings that time has in work, leisure and everyday routines. Together they provide a combination of theoretical and empirically-based approaches that reveal the social significance of time in all aspects of everyday lives.

Ronald Dore’s enquiring mind, rigorous reasoning and comparative methodology have greatly enhanced our understanding of Japan. His insights from Japan have been deployed to generate fresh perspectives on Britain and other industrialized and developing countries. This careful selection of writings reflects his underlying concern with what light the study of Japan sheds on theoretical generalizations about how societies evolve and how economies work. Social Evolution, Economic Development and Culture brings together Ronald Dore’s key writings for the first time, making his work accessible across a wide range of social science disciplines. It produces a distinctive perspective with four interlinking themes – technology-driven social evolution, late development, culture and polemics. These are highly topical in the current context of rapid technological innovation and socio-economic change, globalization and accompanying policy choices. The book provides a rich empirical and conceptual source for those interested in technology, socio-economic evolution and culture, and the ways in which they interact. Researchers, teachers and students in the fields of evolutionary economics, economic development, comparative education, institutional economics, political economy and economic and classical sociology (as well as Japanese studies) will find this volume invaluable reading.

The Golden Age of postwar capitalism has been eclipsed, and with it seemingly also the possibility of harmonizing equality and welfare with efficiency and jobs. Most analyses believe that the emerging postindustrial society is overdetermined by massive, convergent forces, such as tertiarization, new technologies, or globalization, all conspiring to make welfare states unsustainable in the future. Social Foundations of Postindustrial Economies takes a second, more sociological and more institutional, look at the driving forces of economic transformation. What, as a result, stands out is postindustrial diversity, not convergence. Macroscopic, global trends are undoubtedly powerful, yet their influence is easily rivalled by domestic institutional traditions, by the kind of welfare regime that, some generations ago, was put in place. It is, however, especially the family economy that hold the key as to what kind of postindustrial model will emerge, and to how evolving tradeoffs will be managed. Twentieth-century economic analysis depended on a set of sociological assumptions that, now, are invalid. Hence, to better grasp what drives today's economy, we must begin with its social foundations.

The research presented in this volume varies in its coverage and its approach to issues of social inequality in health and health care delivery. This volume includes both theoretical and quantitative papers, and deals with complex understandings of macro system issues, the impact of the patient and individual factors on health and health care and the impact of the provider and interaction between providers and patients. The first section focuses on macro system issues and includes both more theoretical approaches to the topic and quantitative approaches. The second section includes articles with a greater focus on patient characteristics. These articles vary greatly in their coverage, with some focusing on the US as a whole, and others on specific sections of the US or subgroups within the population such as African American women or the elderly. The third section focuses on providers and issues of social inequality and health care delivery. These papers examine issues of gender, race and poverty as examples of sources of inequality in modern societies. In contrast to the second section, although these papers may pay some attention to individual factors, the focus of the chapters are on aspects of health care providers. Research on providers of care is another long, important research tradition within medical sociology.

Одна из первых книг, специально посвященных построению теории общества на основе концепции практик. В книге содержится обобщение взглядов Л. Витгенштейна на природу социального, что стало отправной точкой для дальнейшего уточнения определения и классификации социальных практик. Язык книги довольно сложный и тяжелый, однако в ней много новых идей, например, противопоставление дисперсных и интегративных практик.

This article presents results from an experiment into attribute perception and relevant levels for management of woodland and mountain areas typical of the Iberian Peninsula's Atlantic region. The aim, which the authors argue has been robustly reached, was to identify those aspects of forestry policy clearly perceived by citizens. This is useful for defining enlargement of areas protected under Natura 2000 Network. Results show clear preference for an increase in woodland to over half the current surface area, with replanting of traditional trees, in woodlands of low density and trees of different age and, preferably in irregular shaped plots.
