Many studies have related overall satisfaction with some product or service to satisfaction with specific aspects of the product or service (Oliver 1980, 1993; Parsuraman, Berry, and Zeithaml 1988, 1991; Anderson and Sullivan 1993; Garbarino and Johnson 1999; DeWulf, Odekerken-Schröder, and Iacobucci 2001). Customers may explain their satisfaction with a product or service in terms of specific aspects such as the product attributes, price, customer service, or a combination of these various features.
The Table below organizes known bad bank examples and current proposals
according to the source of capitalization and organizational form. As the Table
shows, the majority of known bad banks have been established based on a decentralized
organizational model. Retriva and Securum (Sweden) as well as BIH (Berlin) were
founded through the subdivision of a bank threatened with insolvency into a good
and bad bank. In all three of these cases, the government provided the funding for the
bad bank and also recapitalized the good bank in exchange for a shareholder stake. ...
Rapid improvements in health and nutrition in developing
countries may be ascribed to specific, deliberate, health- and
nutrition-related interventions and to changes in the underly-
ing social, economic, and health environments. This chapter
is concerned with the contribution of specific interventions,
while recognizing that improved living standards in the long
run provide the essential basis for improved health.
Finally, the individuals who are at the core of healthcare—patients—face challenges
of their own. In early 2010, one out of seven U.S. citizens was uninsured or underin-
sured—roughly 45 million people.
In addition, uninsured medical costs are the num-
ber one cause of personal bankruptcy.
Without a doubt, healthcare is currently in a quality, safety, and cost crisis—one that
exhibits symptoms at the individual, organizational, and societal level. However, we
must acknowledge that this sense of crisis is not new.
After completing this chapter, students will be able to: Explain the significance of culture for international business, identify the sociocultural components of culture, discuss the significance of religion to businesspeople, explain the cultural aspects of technology,…
There is ample scientific evidence that working (and other organizational) life and its conditions
are powerful determinants of health, for better or for worse. The relationship
works both ways. Work affects health but health, more often than not, also affects a
person’s productivity and earning capacity as well as his or her social and family relationships.
Needless to say, this holds true for all aspects of health, both physical and
mental (Levi, 2002).

This aspect of the skill set is critical to ensure organizational excellence, a spirit of pride and elan
in the organization, so that nothing happens to distract or disrupt the business. It deals with the
systems fundamentals: recruiting; deployment and development of resources; the building of
solid working relationships, the development of teams and people; and planning for the success
of the organization. This involves also being an employee champion.
A data model is an integrated collection of concepts for
describing and manipulating data, relationships between
data, and constraints on the data in an organization.
• A model is a representation of “real world” objects and
events, and their associations. It is an abstraction that
concentrates on the essential, inherent aspects of an
organization and ignores accidental properties.
• A data model must provide the basic concepts and notations
that will allow database designers and end-users
unambiguously and accurately to communicate their
understanding of the organizational data....

Key planning considerations for federal agencies include recognizing that the
transition is already under way, because IPv6-capable software and
equipment already exists in agency networks. Other important agency
planning considerations include developing inventories and assessing risks;
creating business cases that identify organizational needs and goals;
establishing policies and enforcement mechanisms; determining costs; and
identifying timelines and methods for transition.
All projects are subject to limitations and constraints as they must be within scope and adhere to
budget, scheduling, and resource requirements. Project planning and documentation are no
exception to this rule. There may also be legislative, regulatory, technology, or organizational
policy requirements which must be followed as part of communications management. These
constraints must be clearly understood and communicated to all stakeholders.
In October 2003 the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and
the National Research Council (NRC) entered into a cooperative agreement that
called for the NRC to examine selected aspects of U.S. foreign assistance activities—
primarily the programs of USAID—that have benefited or could benefit from
access to strong science, technology, and medical capabilities in the United States
If one sociological literature woke me up to new independent variables of interest
to labor economists, another alerted me to new dependent variables – in particular, to a
wealth of new aspects of organizational design and performance that economists could
explore and perhaps explain.
There are disadvantages to this approach. It does not readily take into account broad
environmental changes that may require a shift in priorities, particularly when the
board does not recognize the changed situation and will not adjust policy measures
accordingly. It does not lend itself to assessing less tangible aspects of management
that lead to organizational success. Its focus on means (getting results) could also
result in executive behavior that contradicts other important organizational values,
if those values have not been expressly stated in board policies.
