ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems implementation is a great organizational change, which many times does not reach the desired results. This paper proposes to help understand this implementation, considering that the knowledge of change and evolution processes in organizations may lead to other aspects to be considered, assisting in the identification of the most appropriate actions, restrictions and items that may help sustain the change. It proposes a complex organizational reference model to contribute understanding of the implementation process. Research results show that the concepts proposed in this model - subsystems, emergence, behavior attractors and complexity limits - apply to organizations and contribute to the understanding of the changes triggered by an ERP system implementation. Among other contributions, this work shows the importance of potential generation for change, the relationship among the behavior attractor and competitive advantages gained, and organizational systems maturity considerations.

This qualitative case study explored the process of implementing Experiential Education (EXED) in Yukon Territory Kindergarten to Grade 12 (K-12) schools with a particular focus on investigating: (a) understandings of EXED and the drivers behind its implementation, (b) factors contributing to EXED’s suitability for Yukon schools, and (c) factors supporting and challenging the implementation of EXED in Yukon schools. Data collection involved interviews with Yukon Department of Education (YDE) staff members, principals and teachers, document collection, and reflective note collection. Findings indicated that EXED was understood as more of a methodology than a philosophy for teaching and learning. EXED implementation was primarily driven by bottom-up (school/ teacher) initiatives and was secondarily supported by top-down (YDE) efforts. The process of implementation was supported by three main factors and was challenged primarily by six factors. The results also pointed to three factors that made EXED suitable for implementation in Yukon schools.

Climate change policies and trade policy are on a collision course. Border tax adjustments are at the center of the debate and are being considered in many Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries, notably the United States and the European Union (EU). They will tax carbon emissions at the border with the aim of leveling the playing field between countries with different carbon emission limits. Border tax adjustments may be justified theoretically, but the challenges of implementation and its associated costs and incentives are a key determinant of the outcome. Implementation depends on complex administrative arrangements and controversial calculations of the embedded carbon in imported goods. Border tax adjustment schemes might mine rather than level the playing field. Implementation problems invite vested interests to influence the policy process and divert border adjustment taxes towards protectionist uses. Decision makers and academics alike have produced little evidence on implementation problems but appear to discuss the very complex border tax adjustment scheme with the implicit assumption that implementation problems can be solved if the need arises. The implementation problems are linked to the difficulties of calculating embedded carbon. This paper discusses a key question: how accurately can we measure embedded carbon and what will the inherent uncertainty do to trade policy when it triggers political economy forces?

Over the last two decades Samoa has suffered major damage from two cyclones in 1990-91, minor damage from a third cyclone in 2004, and an earthquake tsunami in 2009. Changes in the scale and impact of these types of natural disasters are likely to be important consequences of climate change for the country because the increases in sea level and in average sea surface temperatures will increase theintensity and damage from major storms. Other potential impacts are linked to changes in the weather patterns associated with El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events. The primary concern focuses on the impact on agriculture, especially in periods of lower precipitation following strong El Niño episodes.This study examines the consequences of an increase in average temperatures of up to 1°C by 2050 and up to 2.75°C by 2100 for the frequency and intensity of major cyclones that hit the islands. Estimates of the economic damage caused by storms in the past have been used to calibrate a damage function that yields an estimated increase in the expected value of economic damage as the peak wind speeds for storms with return periods of 10...

The Economics of Adaptation to Climate Change (EACC) study estimates that it will cost $75 - $100 billion each year for developing countries to adapt to climate change from 2010 to 2050 (World Bank 2009a). The study funded by the governments of the Netherlands, United Kingdom, and Switzerland has two specific objectives. The first is to develop a global estimate of adaptation coststo inform the international community s efforts on how to tailor adequate and sustainable support regarding new and additional resources to help vulnerable developing countries meet adaptation costs. The second objective is to support decision makers in developing countries to better evaluate and assess the risks posed by climate change and to better design strategies to adapt to climate change. The EACC study includes a global track to meet the first study objective and a case study track to meet the second objective. The country track comprises seven countries: Ethiopia, Mozambique, Ghana, Bangladesh, Vietnam, The Plurinational State of Bolivia...

INTRODUCTION: There are significant human, social, and business costs associated with work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSD), despite being the subject of extensive research and widespread interventions. A profile of WRMSD can be obtained via workers compensation data, but the distribution of precursor conditions, such as localised body pain and discomfort, are not routinely assessed. Moreover, there is a paucity of data in Australia. The experience of pain has a psychological component, and it is now believed that psychosocial factors are an independent cause of WRMSD. As a result, psychosocial approaches are increasingly applied to WRMSD prevention. In particular, the Trans-Theoretical model has recently found application in workplaces, and there is some evidence in a UK study of benefit in tailoring interventions using a stage of change (SOC) construct. Here, the interventions are designed to address workers readiness to change behaviour. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The research in this thesis aimed to describe the relationship between psychosocial factors and musculoskeletal pain and discomfort (MSPD) experience in workplace settings, and to evaluate the effectiveness and implementation of a stage of change approach to MSPD prevention. The objectives of the research were as follows: 1. Determine the prevalence of MSPD in a sample of South Australian workplaces. 2. Examine relationships between MSPD and a range of individual...

Context Policy decisions form a major driver of land use change, with important implications for socially and environmentally susceptible regions. It is well known that there can be major unintended consequences, especially where policies are not tailored to regionally specific contexts. Objectives In this paper we assess the implications of 60 years of agricultural policies on soil erosion prevention (SEP) by vegetation, an essential regulating ecosystem service in Mediterranean Europe. Objectives In this paper we assess the implications of 60 years of agricultural policies on soil erosion prevention (SEP) by vegetation, an essential regulating ecosystem service in Mediterranean Europe. Methods To assess these implications we produced and analysed a time series of land cover/use and environmental conditions datasets (from 1951 to 2012) in relation to changing agricultural policies for a specific region in the southern Portugal. Set of indicators related to SEP allowed us to identify that land use intensification as increased soil erosion in the last 60 years. Results Particularly in the last 35 years, as a consequence of head age payments for cattle, the agricultural policy had a significant effect in the density and renewal of the tree cover...

Joint Applied Project; The objective of this project is to examine the attitudes and perceptions of key stakeholders during DoD's implementation of the National Security Personnel System (NSPS). This analysis of the attitudes and perceptions of key stakeholders during DoD's implementation of NSPS will be aligned with the NSPS Key Performance Parameters (KPPs). Leveraging data from the DoD NSPS office, DMDC, OPM survey data, and other independent reports, this project will address the following questions: What are the key stakeholders' attitudes and perceptions towards DoD's implementation of NSPS, as viewed through the framework of the NSPS KPPs? What do these perceptions indicate about DoD meeting the NSPS KPPs? NSPS statistics were gathered and analyzed to support the analysis, conclusions and recommendations. The conclusions include identification of the prevailing attitudes and perceptions during NSPS implementation, with the emphasis on lessons learned and recommendations of best practices, which can be applied to future attempts at implementation of a pay for performance personnel system in a public organization.

Policy/program implementation, e.g., the process of fulfilling policy/program directives, is fundamentally tied to change. Implementation studies have examined the process, identifying many critical organizational variables although individuals perform the activities.^ Many of the studies are predicated on the rational, goal oriented model of organizations and examine implementation, presenting only the goal-oriented view. Organizational change and its resistance, however, are not fully explained by the rational model of organizations. There are other schools of thought providing different views of organizations from which explanation may emerge. Bolman and Deal (1984, 1991a, 1994) provide a different perspective for examining organizations Bolman and Deal argue organizations should be viewed through four different frames or lenses. Framing and reframing organizational action captures the complexity of action and provides better understanding of organizational processes. Understanding of implementation of policies/programs also will benefit from the use of the four-frame approach.^ The goal of this research is to provide a better understanding of the implementation process by examining individual attitudes toward change, the dependent variable of this research...

The Government of Vietnam (GoV) has conducted a Climate Public Expenditure and Investment Review (CPEIR) with the support of the World Bank and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The review examined Vietnam’s policies and climate change expenditure for the period 2010–2013 from five ministries (MONRE, MOIT, MARD, MOC, and MOT) and three provinces (Bac Ninh, Quang Nam and An Giang). To assess the public expenditure and improve alignment with policy goals and targets, a Typology of Climate Change Response Expenditures (TCCRE) was developed. This typology was used to classify the government’s spending on its climate change response into three pillars: (i) Policy and Governance (PG), (ii) Scientific, Technological and Societal Capacity (ST), and (iii) Climate Change Delivery (CCD). The typology also examined how expenditure within each pillar and in each sector is relevant to Vietnam’s climate change response (CC-response). Since roughly 70 percent of the total investment spending is allocated at the provincial level...

Este pesquisa, inserida no campo de estudo sobre mudanças organizacionais, buscou investigar como é realizada a gestão de mudanças na Criminalística da Polícia Federal. Para isso, partiu-se de um referencial teórico para a estruturação de categorias de análise essenciais para o estudo do tema, agrupadas em três dimensões: conteúdo da mudança, processo de implementação da mudança e contexto em que ocorreu a mudança. Dessa forma, essa pesquisa de caráter qualitativo avaliou o processo de gestão de mudança ocorrido por meio da implementação de indicadores de complexidade na Criminalística da Polícia Federal, à luz do modelo proposto por John P. Kotter para a implementação eficaz de mudanças nas organizações, considerando sua interação com as circunstâncias contextais prevalecentes. Para a coleta de dados foram utilizadas entrevistas semiestruturadas com os componentes do corpo gerencial e diretor da Criminalística, responsáveis pela condução do processo de implementação da mudança. A análise de documentos institucionais e a observação direta complementaram a coleta dos dados. Os resultados apontaram para uma significante concorrência dos fatores relacionados às três dimensões estudadas que impediu o alcance dos objetivos esperados com a mudança...

O tema central deste estudo é a avaliação do processo de implementação de mudança curricular em cursos de graduação em enfermagem desenvolvidos em duas universidades públicas, uma estadual e outra federal, ambas localizadas no estado de Mato Grosso do Sul (MS) entre os anos de 2002 a 2011. O interesse nasce da experiência da participação no processo de mudança do Projeto Pedagógico do Curso de Enfermagem da Universidade Estadual de Mato Grosso do Sul (UEMS) que resultou em uma proposta de Currículo Integrado. As dificuldades de implementação dessa mudança, no cotidiano, desafiaram-nos a entender como e em que medida, na percepção dos sujeitos envolvidos, os processos de implementação de mudança nos projetos pedagógicos dos cursos aqui estudados contribuíram para melhorar a qualidade do trabalho pedagógico desenvolvido na formação de enfermeiros, constituindo-se no problema de pesquisa. Na contextualização dessas mudanças, foram consideradas as demandas externas, voltadas para a regulação educacional, representada pelas Diretrizes Curriculares Nacionais (DCNs). Desse modo, este trabalho tem como objetivo central avaliar como se deu o processo de implementação de mudança curricular nesses cursos, a partir dos objetivos específicos a seguir: a) identificar as indicações de mudança presentes nos projetos curriculares dos cursos; b) identificar a percepção dos sujeitos sobre os avanços e implicações desse processo na prática pedagógica; c) descrever a implementação das ações adotadas. O método escolhido foi de cunho exploratório com abordagem qualitativa. Assim...

Background: There is an increasing expectation by governments and communities that health research will lead to health and health system improvements, yet developing the necessary science behind translation and implementation of research findings into policy and practice has been neglected and underfunded. Aims: • to investigate the contribution made by Australian randomised controlled trials and Cochrane systematic reviews in maternal and perinatal health to improvements in the health and wellbeing of women, babies and their families in Australia and internationally; • to evaluate different ways of assessing impact and to identify the most effective methods for informing future strategies to improve generation, synthesis, translation and implementation of research into health impact. Methods: I used mixed methods (bibliometric and social media analyses; survey of triallists (quantitative and qualitative); case studies; systematic reviews of observational studies; systematic reviews of interventions; an overview; cohort studies; a randomised controlled trial; clinical practice guidelines; and implementation studies). I used behaviour change theory to explore uptake and implementation of research and developed a research, translation and impact cycle to chart the flow from knowledge to impact. For the cohort of Australian maternal and perinatal randomised controlled trials...

Policy Question: What policy strategies should the government of the state of Oaxaca implement to adapt to climate change? The Mexican government and the international community have identified climate change as one of the most difficult challenges of the century. This is especially true for developing countries and their poor populations, since climate change impacts will be a constant threat to achieve international and national development goals. Although climate change mitigation strategies are essential to reduce these impacts in the future, the historic and present emissions level will have impact in the short, medium, and long term. Therefore, adaptation strategies are critical to overcome these impacts and to be able to achieve development. The World Bank in Mexico, through the Latin America and Caribbean Regional Environmental Unit, is working with the Mexican federal and state governments to develop climate change adaptation plans. Together with the World Bank, the government of the state of Oaxaca is creating a climate change adaptation plan that will be an instrument to face the challenges that climate change will have in the state. As part of that project, this policy paper provides a broad perspective of climate change impacts for the state of Oaxaca...

Organizational fitness is often achieved by making changes in business operations. These changes frequently involve the use of a new technology. The effective implementation of change is aided by examining the benefits and challenges of technology management when making decisions. Important elements for consideration in technology management are technology evaluation, integration, planning, implementation, training and change. A solution is proposed to combine and encompass these elements of technology management to encourage the positive aspects and avoid the negative aspects of change implementation. The tool consists of principles to be addressed for each element.; RIT community members may access full-text via RIT Libraries licensed databases: http://library.rit.edu/databases/

Byrne, John; Climate change and sustainable development are both challenging issues for developing countries, as they need to allocate their limited financial, human and technical resources to more immediate and urgent needs such as education, sanitary and infrastructure construction. Policy objectives on climate change and development may be conflicting in the short term but they could also be complementary. This dissertation explores potential synergies between climate change mitigation and sustainable development policies and proposes to integrate policy objectives of climate change mitigation and sustainable development in developing countries. Particularly, this dissertation focuses on China as China is currently undergoing a fundamental change in the social economy and China already became the largest GHGs emissions in the world. This dissertation investigates, at the national level, whether China's sustainable development policies climate friendly and whether China's climate change mitigation policies contribute to national sustainable development. Integration of climate change mitigation and sustainable development policy objectives in the development and implementation of CDM program is examined, which is partially because that CDM is designed with twin objectives on emissions reduction and sustainable development...
