  1. 1. Toward a cyclical model of resource alteration

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Peter Altmann; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; fine-grained; cognitive theory; Resource; practice theory; resource alteration; resource understanding; micro-level;

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

    Abstract : 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. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling and measuring resource assessments

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Gró Einarsdóttir; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Subjective resources; resource assessments; reference points; well-being; optimism; worry; satisfaction with life; consideration of future consequences; ;

    Abstract : Do you have enough resources? We argue that in order to answer this question it is necessary to consider the type of resource assessed, how a particular resource relates to other resources, and which reference points are used in the assessment. Building on this view, this thesis explores how resource assessments can be conceptualized and measured within an integrative resource framework that takes into account the process of resource evaluation.

  4. 4. Hydrokinetic Resource Assessment Measurements and Models

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Emilia Lalander; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The conversion of kinetic energy in water currents into electricity has gained great attention the past years. The conversion systems are stand-alone units that typically consist of a turbine, driven by the water stream, with a generator connected to it. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reproductive allocation and costs of reproduction in subarctic herbs : A resource-based perspective
