Explain the internal context of strategy. Identify a firm’s resources and capabilities and explain
their role in its performance. Define dynamic capabilities and explain their role in both
strategic change and a firm’s performance. Explain how value‑chain activities are related to firm
performance and competitive advantage. Explain the role of managers with respect to resources,
capabilities, and value‑chain activities.
That rapid globalization is taking place in businesses around the world is beyond
dispute. If multinational firms are to prosper now and in the future, their managers
must be able to function in a global context—formulating and implementing strategies,
inventing and utilizing technologies, and creating and coordinating information.
International assignments are the single most powerful means for developing
future global leaders.
The rationale, aim and purpose of this study guide
The rationale for a study guide on how to read and interpret annual reports is that this is a skill that
can prove valuable in many contexts, situations and job positions. Whether you are the decision maker
in, or you are contributing to the decision of, selecting a business partner or a supplier or a client, you
will find that being able to have an informed insight in the financial performance and position of these
third parties that you are considering is rather useful. You can be a project manager, the responsible
for a product line, a...
This book offers a contribution to current debates over child labor. It also
presents child labor as a problem to which various branches of international
law have made a response. Because of the broad range of international law sub-
disciplines treated in this book, and because of the necessity of understanding
the context of child labor as a social, economic and cultural issue, I have ben-
efited from the contributions and support of many individuals and organiza-
tions throughout the research and writing of this book....

One of the most significant contributions of the MEASURE DHS program is the creation of an
internationally comparable body of data on the demographic and health characteristics of populations in
developing countries. The DHS Comparative Reports series examines these data across countries in a
comparative framework. The DHS Analytical Studies series focuses on specific topics. The principal
objectives of both series are to provide information for policy formulation at the international level and to
examine individual country results in an international context.
The context of international professional football
largely evolved during the 1990s. In the past ten
years or so, football has moved from being a national
culture to real internationalization. This has created
a huge business with several dimensions, and thus
football has become a unique example of merchandising
in sport – the only similar case perhaps being
the Olympics, which are also universal but occur less
We present cdec, an open source framework for decoding, aligning with, and training a number of statistical machine translation models, including word-based models, phrase-based models, and models based on synchronous context-free grammars. Using a single uniﬁed internal representation for translation forests, the decoder strictly separates model-speciﬁc translation logic from general rescoring, pruning, and inference algorithms.
We compare the impact of sentenceinternal vs. sentence-external features on word order prediction in two generation settings: starting out from a discriminative surface realisation ranking model for an LFG grammar of German, we enrich the feature set with lexical chain features from the discourse context which can be robustly detected and reﬂect rough grammatical correlates of notions from theoretical approaches to discourse coherence. In a more controlled setting, we develop a constituent ordering classiﬁer that is trained on a German treebank with gold coreference annotation. ...
The information used for the extraction of terms can be considered as rather 'internal', i.e. coming from the candidate string itself. This paper presents the incorporation of 'external' information derived from the context of the candidate string. It is embedded to the C-value approach for automatic term recognition (ATR), in the form of weights constructed from statistical characteristics of the context words of the candidate string.

This book is born out of a discussion at the Socio-Legal Studies Association
annual conference in 1999 (in Loughborough) between Dave Cowan,
Caroline Hunter and Simon Halliday. We all had an interest in homelessness,
law, administrative justice and decision-making, and had a background
in researching these issues. In particular, Dave had done some early
work about informal internal appeal systems which had been developed in
the early 1990s in homelessness cases.
In this chapter, you will explore political and legal systems around the world. You will also learn how companies monitor and manage political risks. Acquaint yourself with ethics and social responsibility issues in a global context. Explore how relations among countries affect international business.
This version includes amendments resulting from IFRSs issued up to 31 December 2008. IAS 2 Inventories was issued by the International Accounting Standards Committee in December 1993. It replaced IAS 2 Valuation and Presentation of Inventories in the Context of the Historical Cost System (originally issued in October 1975).
The Great Prepotion Mystery is designed to be used as a review of prepositions in an intermediate/ advance grammar course. The vocabulary is not grades, and some students may have to use a dictionary more frequently than others. The student gets practice with preposition in three ways: by choosing an appropriate preposition in context; by selecting an appropriate in a narrowly defined situation; and by using prepositions in student- generated sentences....

This design guide defines the comprehensive functional components required to build a site-to-site
virtual private network (VPN) system in the context of enterprise wide area network (WAN)
connectivity. This design guide covers the design topology of dynamic multipoint VPN (DMVPN).
This guide is part of an ongoing series that addresses VPN solutions, using the latest VPN technologies
from Cisco, and based on practical design principles that have been tested to scale.
