   1 Parsons, Simon
Qualitative methods for reasoning under uncertainty /
Simon Parsons.-- Cambridge: The MIT Press, 2001.
xviii, 506p. , 23cm.
ISBN : 0262161680.
006.33 PAR 142909
In this book the author describes qualitative methods for
reasoning under uncertainty, "uncertainty" being a catch-
all term for various types of imperfect information. The
author does not invent completely new methods for
reasoning under uncertainty but provides the means to
create qualitative versions of existing methods. To
illustrate this, he develops qualitative versions of
probability theory, possibility theory, and the Dempster-
Shafer theory of evidence. According to him, these
theories are best considered complementary rather than
exclusive. This approach leads naturally to the use of
several different methods in the solution of a single
problem and to the complexity of integrating the results
problem to which qualitative methods provide a solution.

The theory of knowledge, or epistemology, is often
regarded as a dry topic that bears little relation to
actual knowledge practices. This book aims to correct
this by showing the roots, developments and prospects of
modern epistemology from its beginnings in the nineteenth
century to the present day.

This book takes a completely new approach to objectivity
and subjectivity, no longer treating them as opposed - as
many existing texts do - but as logically and
methodologically related in social research. The authors
explain complex arguments with great clarity for social
science students, while also providing the detail and
comprehensiveness required to meet the needs of
practicing researchers and scholars.

This book traces the growth of a new middle class in
Kathmandu as urban Nepalis harness the modern cultural
resources of mass media and consumer goods to build
modern identities and pioneer a new socio-cultural space
in one of the world-s -least developed countries-.The
author looks at the cultural practices of this new middle
class, examining such phenomena as cinema and video
viewing, popular music, film magazines, local fashion
systems, and advertising. He explores three interactive
and mutually constitutive ethnographic terrains: a
burgeoning local consumer culture, a growing mass-
mediated popular imagination, and a recently emerging
youth culture.He shows how an array of local cultural
narratives - stories of honor, value, prestige, and piety
- flow in and around global narratives of -progress-,
modernity, and consumer fulfilment.

What do soaring debt, endemic narcissism, road rage,
political attack ads and killer drones share in common?
All are symptoms of a society that moves, reflexively and
relentlessly, to exploit the fastest, most efficient
means to any end, without regard to cost. This is the
-impulse society- in which we live. In every facet of
postindustrial society - the way we eat, the way we
communicate and entertain, the way we work, the way we
court lovers and raise children, educate and govern -
technology and affluence has let us reach our goals with
a speed and efficiency unimaginable even a generation
ago. But the result is not all milk, honey, and gold.In
this book, the author traces the roots of this problem,
damningly revealing how it has permeated society, and
cogently argues how it may, perhaps, still be reversed.

in Asia, Asian economies and financial markets felt its
impact, which is likely to deepen significantly in the
coming years. The book brings to light not only the
cyclical impacts of the crisis, but also those that could
influence the long-term growth rate and structure of

Education and media services have much in common. Both
provide services that embody local cultures, in which
there is extensive public sector participation and
significant domestic regulation. Yet, both areas are
lightly committed in international trade agreements like
the GATS. This lack of commitment and the lack of
additional impact from negotiations in bilateral
discriminatory trade agreements are cross-cutting themes
in the book. It responds to these issues to provide
readers with a comprehensive and consistent treatment of
policy in the higher education and media services sector
across a range of Asian economies little studied in the
existing literature. It also opens the discussion with an
overview of global trends in each area, followed by
detailed, country-specific studies.

Previous research focused either on the relationship
between strategic planning and performance or
coordination mechanisms and performance. This book
addresses this gap in the literature by delivering three
contributions to theory and empirical research: firstly,
by clarifying and proposing the influences of strategic
planning and strategic organization on the performance,
secondly, by developing a model and associated hypotheses
on both direct and interaction effects of strategic
planning and coordination mechanisms, and thirdly, by
testing the hypotheses.

In order to stay efficient, companies need to improve
their existing business processes on a continuous basis.
To ensure competitive edge, it is essential for companies
to adapt radically to new business opportunities and when
external demands change. However, experience and research
show that companies have difficulties managing both the
continuous improvement of the existing system and radical
change at the same time. By using TQM and BPR to
represent the two approaches to change the author
contributes to the understanding of the challenges of
this integration and shows ways to accomplish a
successful synergistic combining of the two approaches.

The Innovation paradox : why good businesses kill
breakthroughs and how they can change / Tony Davila and
Marc J Epstein.-- San Francisco: Berrett-Koehler

For more than twenty years, major innovations-the kind
that transform industries and even societies-seem to have
come almost exclusively from startups, despite massive
efforts and millions of dollars spent by established
companies. The authors say the problem is that the very
processes and structures responsible for established
companiesĀ° enduring success prevent them from developing
breakthroughs. This is the innovation paradox. They
explain how corporate culture, leadership style,
strategy, incentives, and management systems can be
structured to encourage breakthroughs. Then they bring it
all together in a new model called the Startup
Corporation, which combines the philosophy of the startup
with the experience, resources, and network of an
established company.

Call it -lean start-up,- -design thinking,- or -agile.-
No matter the name, it-s clear that a new method is
revolutionizing how to successfully create, refine, and
bring ideas to market without traditional business
planning. But because these ideas and techniques run
counter to conventional managerial thinking and practice,
managers in established organizations have difficulty
implementing them. No longer. Based on field work with
thousands of managers and validated inside dozens of
companies, innovation experts Nathan Furr and Jeff Dyer
show when and how to apply a -lean start-up- approach to
innovation in established businesses.
