Evolution of Norms in the Emergence of Digital Business Ecosystems [chapter]

Prince Kwame Senyo, Kecheng Liu, Lily Sun, John Effah
2016 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
Again, this knowledge provides practitioners with understanding of norms that can or cannot be migrated to digital domains and the factors that can constrain the transition to DBE.  ...  We also call for further studies from the developed world perspective and other digital ecosystems to understand how contextual factors shape norm evolution in TBE to DBE transition.  ...  This study draws on the organisational onion to analyse evolution of informal, formal and technical norms as TBEs transition to DBEs.  ...

Causes and Consequences of Unexpected Educational Transitions in Switzerland

Markus P. Neuenschwander, Jessica L. Garrett
2008 Journal of Social Issues  
Switzerland's highly canalized education system allows us to test how tracking affects person-environment fit of students for students who choose a normative versus unexpected downward transition pattern  ...  Results indicate that students with strong expectancies and personal values can oppose institutional norms and chart their own academic course; however, these students are less likely to perceive a good  ...  We ran similar analyses with the expanded school track students (Table 2) .  ...

Transition versus transformation: What's the difference?

Katharina Hölscher, Julia M. Wittmayer, Derk Loorbach
2018 Environmental Innovation and Societal Transitions  
Both concepts are often associated with normative notions to describe the desirability of transition and transformation.  ...  While both concepts refer to change in complex adaptive systems, they are often employed to different system foci. This has implications on what elements of change are analysed.  ...

Fuzzy system models for aggregate scheduling analysis

I.B. Türksen, M.H. Fazel Zarandi
1998 International Journal of Approximate Reasoning  
For this purpose, a parametric fuzzy system modelling approach is proposed in order to: (1) analyse the behaviour patterns of an operating scheduling system, i.e., to identify the bottle-neck variables  ...  The purpose of this paper is not to determine optimal detailed scheduling sequences: but rather to investigate and analyse complex fuzzy interactions of variables affecting a scheduling system and its  ...  Input selection Input selection is analysed with both the identity norm matrix and covariance norm matrix.  ...

Use of Symbols in Expressing the Quantitative Classification of Igneous Rocks

Whitman Cross
1912 The Journal of geology  
Clarke' has given, among various geochemical data, a new average for the existing chemical analyses of igneous rocks of the world, together with other averages for continents, countries, or districts.  ...  The normative ratios of the table on p. 760 give the data by which rocks of these average compositions may be accurately classified in the quantitative system.  ...  It appears at once from the symbols of this With regard to the relation of normative quartz and feldspar, determining the order, it is seen that eight rocks fall within the narrow transitional limits between  ...

2016 Technological forecasting & social change  
The authors the authors would like to thank the organisers of the NWO/JSPS seminar 'Studying Sustainability Transitions in Welfare States: a research agenda for Japan and the Netherlands' for the opportunity  ...  As such, sustainability transitions give rise to normative conflicts.  ...  The typical way in which the multilevel perspective is applied is of limited value for analysing societal conflict, especially in cases such as this one, where normative diversity does not coincide with  ...

The sequential evolution of land tenure norms

Geoff Kushnick, Russell D. Gray, Fiona M. Jordan
2014 Evolution and human behavior  
We assessed the relative strength of plausible models of land tenure evolution using maximum likelihood analyses with lexical and time-scaled trees.  ...  Our analyses of phylogenetic and geographic signal suggest that vertical transmission patterned land tenure norms to a greater degree than horizontal transmission.  ...  When we compared these with the full model with all possible transitions (shown in Fig. 3b) , the N-I-G-K trajectory had higher likelihood values.  ...
