  1. 1. Toward a cyclical model of resource alteration

    Författare :Peter Altmann; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; fine-grained; cognitive theory; Resource; practice theory; resource alteration; resource understanding; micro-level;

    Sammanfattning : Strategy work is principally about resource alteration. As managers attempt to alter their organizational resources, they need to ask two questions: “What are our resources?” and “How can we use these resources?” Managers will probably have little difficulty answering these questions in the case of tangible resources, e.g. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Resource and Environmental Impacts of Resource-Efficiency Measures Applied to Electronic Products

    Författare :Hampus André; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; scarce metals; life cycle assessment; resource-efficiency; electronic products; resource depletion; circular economy; metal resource use;

    Sammanfattning : Natural resources such as ecosystems, land, water and metals underpin the functioning of economies and human well-being, and are becoming increasingly scarce due to growth in population and affluence. Metals are increasingly demanded for their specific properties as modern technology develops. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Hydro-Kinetic Energy Conversion : Resource and Technology

    Sammanfattning : Manufacturing industry is under permanent pressure to maintain its economic growth and profitability as strong societal backbone. At the same time pressures of waste generation and resource consumption are increasing as result of manufacturing operations. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Human Resource Disclosures

    Författare :Gunnar Rimmel; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; human resource disclousures; voluntary disclousure; human resourses; accounting; annual reporting practice; disclousure scoreboard; comparative analysis;

    Sammanfattning : Although several corporations proclaim their employees as being thecorporation's most valuable resource, only a few corporations have utilised models and concepts of measuring human resources in their corporate annualreports. In the ongoing academic debate, human resource disclosures are often described and thought of as problematic due to the limited understanding of such information. LÄS MER
