Econometrics can at first appear a highly technical subject, but it can
also equip the practitioner with a useful skillset of smart ways to
formulate research questions and collect data. Enjoyable
Econometrics applies econometric methods to a variety of unusual
and engaging research questions, often beyond the realm of
economics, demonstrating the great potential of using such methods
to understand a wide range of phenomena.
Mainport Rotterdam is met afstand de grootste haven van Europa. Jaarlijks worden vele miljoenen containers overgeslagen. Deze positie wordt door velen geaccepteerd als een gegeven. Maar is dat terecht?
In an increasingly connected world experiencing accelerating levels of technological disruption, the strategic challenges for business leaders are greater than ever before, and conventional approaches to strategy are unable to contend with today's VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) business environment. A new approach to strategic decision-making is required to motivate and mobilize stakeholders to achieve the business’s overarching goals, such as making a profit and delivering on people- and planet-related objectives.
This book introduces multidimensional scaling (MDS) and unfolding as data analysis techniques for applied researchers. MDS is used for the analysis of proximity data on a set of objects, representing the data as distances between points in a geometric space (usually of two dimensions). Unfolding is a related method that maps preference data (typically evaluative ratings of different persons on a set of objects) as distances between two sets of points (representing the persons and the objects, resp.).
Cartoons are a powerful tool for reflection on ethics in the workplace. This book contains 150 new cartoons. Each cartoon refers to a view about ethics (an ethicism) and its risk. The cartoons can be used to address ethical issues at work in a visual and humoristic way.
Writing a professional text that is easy to read? Many students find this challenging. The Academic Writing Skills for Economics and Business Administration teaches how to get there. The book may be used as a source of reference. The online course is available on www.academicwritingskillsforeconomics.com It breaks down the writing process into different skills (Diskits) like structuring, quoting, sentence structure and argumentation. For each skill, students get instruction, rules of thumb and several short exercises. The combination of both clearly explained skills and exercises for practicing has resulted in an effective training course.
In this chapter, I reflect on my research on expatriation and cross-cultural interactions over the past four decades. I have characterized it as voyages of self-discovery, as my research questions have been framed by my own experiences in growing up in a bicultural environment in Hong Kong and subsequent relocation to North America. My research findings have helped
me understand the what, why, and how of my encounters and observations in the context of international assignments and cross-cultural encounters. The chapter then focuses on my 1981 publication that presented a contingency paradigm of selection and training that generated substantial interest in expatriation. While the contingency paradigm is essentially valid today, I
outline four developments that have taken place since then – war for talent, greying of the labor force, rise of emerging markets, and need for global orientation – that necessitate new perspectives in understanding human resource management in the global context. I then allude to how I would rewrite my 1981 paper differently in light of these changes.
Though BRI has been acknowledged as a cross-continent project expected to benefit both sides of the world, the tension and misunderstanding, instead, is, still in dominance, particularly for practitioners to act. I would like to propose my view of solutions from theoretical and practical perspectives. My motivation and hope, is, to offer some insights and implications to my audience, in order to facilitate the process of rethinking about our shared traits — particularly human kind's shared traits in difference-but-in-common.
In dit boek presenteren Willem Verbeke en Dave Teeuwsen de theoretische grondslagen voor het ontwikkelingsmodel van de succesvolle professional van ExploreMe.eu.
Dit holistisch model stelt dat succesvolle professionals handelen als kennisbroker. Ze zijn in staat met de kennis of ervaring die ze met bestaande klanten hebben opgedaan, indringende gesprekken te voeren met nieuwe klanten. Op basis daarvan kunnen ze innovatieve oplossingen aanreiken. Dit vraagt echter veerkracht van de professional, omdat innovatief zijn impliceert dat je je eigen kennis altijd ter discussie stelt.
