1.ASSESSMENT OF PEDAGOGIES

Author:Stankovic, N

Source:4TH INTERNATIONAL TECHNOLOGY, EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE (INTED 2010),2010,Vol.

Abstract:We report on our experience with two pedagogies over a two year period, using one approach in each academic year, but the learning outcome remained the same. The first approach, in the first year, was backed up by Ian Sommerville's textbook, and the second by Bruegge and Dutoit's. The students came from three different curricula, and the class size in the second year was three times that in the first year. The difference in the outcome and in the meeting of the learning outcome has been strongly in favour of the second pedagogy. In this paper we compare the outcomes, provide a number of examples that explain the issues that the students had to deal with, and how the change in the pedagogy has improved the quality of the laboratory work without changing the project framework itself.

2.IDENTIFYING BUSINESS-TO-BUSINESS CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS (B2B CSFS): CHINESE SMES' PERSPECTIVE

Abstract:The growing interests of Business-To-Business (B2B) e-Commerce have lead to a rapid progress towards "e" transformation for Chinese SMEs. Literature is indicative of the growth of the B2B sectors in all industries, and B2B e-Marketplace is one of the sectors that have witnessed a rapid increase. Consequence, the importance of identifying the B2B Critical Success Factors (CSFs) for improved value chain in B2B exchanges is extremely important for business efficiency. Therefore, there are three research objectives in this study; first to identify B2B CSFs for SMEs operating in the China's B2B market; second to empirically test the factors by targeting sample population in China from various industries; and third to propose a B2B CSF model based on the empirical results.

3.IT IS SO HARD

Author:Stankovic, N

Abstract:Software engineering is a challenging discipline because the level of problem presentation is mostly high, dealing with design problems and abstract concepts. Even simple questions are often missed in students work, such as What do I need to know to make my design work?, What information or objects are missing in my design?, and Is my design consistent at the same level and across levels? It appears that the difficulty of producing structured documentation and acquiring the skills of expressing oneself in another language, such as the Unified Modeling Language (UML), or in a different way obscures the need for answering such questions. Even when the design is coarse, the understanding of the concepts and relating them to behavior, assigning behavior to objects, and thinking and solving problems at different levels of abstraction at the same time is difficult for most students.

Abstract:As the economy continue to grow dramatically, more and more Chinese companies are competing with not only "foreign invaders" in China's domestic market but also business giants in the global market. For a Chinese firm, having lower labour cost is no longer the best way to achieve and maintain competitive advantage (CA). On the other hand, technological innovation (TI) is widely recognized as the key to creating and sustaining CA. Therefore, the question is on how to improve the capability of TI. Based on the knowledge-based sustainable CA approach, through combining [1] building intelligent organisations model with TI, the aim of this paper is to investigate through a Chinese case study company on whether sustainable CA through TI and the relationship between improving TI and building an intelligent organisation can be achieved. Data is mainly collected through questionnaires and gathering data from databanks and archives. Key findings indicated that competitive advantage can be created from TI activities and that a flat organisational structure and efficient information system can help develop a learning organisation. Limitations of the research and suggestions for future work conclude the paper.

5.CONTINGENCY BETWEEN KNOWLEDGE CHARACTERISTICS AND KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER MECHANISM: AN INTEGRATIVE FRAMEWORK

Author:Li, ZY;Xi, YM

Source:MANAGING KNOWLEDGE FOR GLOBAL AND COLLABORATIVE INNOVATIONS,2010,Vol.8

Abstract:Drawing on the knowledge-based view of the firm, this paper investigates the effectiveness of different organizational mechanisms on knowledge transfer. In this study, we propose a paradigm for managing the complex process of knowledge transfer. Its central theme is that the effectiveness of knowledge transfer depends on the fit between knowledge characteristics and transfer mechanism. It is argued that different knowledge requires different organizational mechanisms to support its transfer. A theoretical framework is developed to provide an analytical perspective on this issue. Two categories of organizational mechanism for knowledge transfer are identified (i.e., formal and informal mechanism), the types, dimensions, and characteristics of knowledge are discussed, and the nature of this fit is examined.
