Education and Social Mobility For Orang Asli Papua

Alfath Bagus Panuntun El Nur Indonesia
2022 PCD Online Journal  
Papuan human resources are complicated due to educational barriers that make it difficult for indigenous Papuans (OAP) to achieve upward social mobility.  ...  The findings revealed the positive effect of SAL on reducing educational barriers and increasing social mobility for OAPs, but there are still some areas that needed to be improved.  ...  It is consistent with the Papua Roadmap, which takes a welfare-oriented approach (Widjojo et al., 2008) .  ...

Bringing Enterprise Business Processes into Information System Products [chapter]

Naveen Prakash
2008 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
Therefore, an information system deliverable is an integration of Enterprise information, Enterprise business rules, and Enterprise processes.  ...  We instantiate the generic method model with concepts of the IS deliverable and thereby represent rule and process logic as dependency graphs.  ...  A number of techniques, data-oriented, function-oriented, behaviour-oriented and object-oriented, have been developed for representing enterprise information types and business rules.  ...
