Can we reconcile individualisation with relational 'personhood: : a case study from the Early Neolithic

Chapman John, Gaydarska Bisserka
2011 Documenta Praehistorica  
In this article, we seek to discuss the tension between relational personhood, characterised by 'dividuals', and the individualisation of persons whose driving force was the creation of new embodied skills  ...  those required for domesticating animals, potting, building rectangular houses, growing cereals and pulses and polishing stone tools and ornaments.  ...  We should also recall that the Early Neolithic period in the Balkans and Central Europe covers a long period of time -perhaps as much as 800 years, or 25+ generations, in any single region -and a wide  ...

Strategies and Taxonomy, Tailoring Your CSCW Evaluation [chapter]

Kahina Hamadache, Luigi Lancieri
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we propose a new taxonomy of CSCW evaluation methods based on previous works and on our analysis of current evaluation methods.  ...  With this new taxonomy and the description of CSCW development process and life-cycle we are able to propose evaluation strategies that can be adapted and tailored for most of systems.  ...  CSCW evaluation is a vast domain, and as such it can be fathomed from many perspectives. In [7] the author proposes to consider it from five aspects as shown on Tab 1.  ...

A Qualitative Method Proposal for the Study of Strategy as Practice

Leonardo Lemos da Silveira Santos, César Tureta, Bruno Felix
2021 RAC: Revista de Administração Contemporânea  
Phenomenology, grounded theory, ethnography, and narratives are discussed, and their components are presented in the context of strategy as practice studies.  ...  Purpose: recently, the strategy as practice approach has sought to overcome the micro/macro dichotomy existing in its literature, as well as to better integrate the dimensions of praxis, practice and practitioner  ...  Aiming at study strategy teams under strategy as practice perspective, Paroutis and Pettigrew (2007) employ the case study as method research and collected data through interviews and documents.  ...

Ethnographic Interventions: A Strategy and Experiments in Mapping Sociospatial Practices

Nadia Mounajjed, Chengzhi Peng, Stephen Walker
2007 Human Technology: An Interdisciplinary Journal on Humans in ICT Environments  
Finally, we discuss the development of a multi-stage intervention protocol as a creative and flexible instrument, involving design and preparation, data collection, interpretation, and narration.  ...  Three case studies illustrate how this strategy has been conceived, applied, and developed at architectural sites.  ...  The ethnographic intervention strategy used in this study was mostly empirical. It was a combined strategy, bringing together ethnography and installation.  ...

Fairness in Strategy: A Fair Process Evaluation of Strategy Schools

Koen Tackx
2016 Social Science Research Network  
We then propose a new strategy process model which has a greater fair process dimension than any of the more traditional 'strategy schools' and as such offers the potential to bring greater effectiveness  ...  We then propose a new strategy process model which has a greater fair process dimension than any of the more traditional 'strategy schools' and as such offers the potential to bring greater effectiveness  ...  We will use 'strategy creation process,' or more briefly the 'strategy process,' as the term for the integrative process of formulating and implementing a strategy.  ...

Lifecycle scenario design for product end-of-life strategy

Shinichi Fukushige, Kazuhiro Yamamoto, Yasushi Umeda
2012 Journal of Remanufacturing  
To achieve this, it is necessary to consider the environmental burden from a product life cycle and the quality of life of the consumer.  ...  In this study, a systematic approach for connecting basic human needs and the product development process, called the living-sphere approach, is proposed.  ...  Both types of sustainability should be integrated in future work. In addition, case studies will be performed for different countries to evaluate the usefulness of the proposed approach.  ...
