A IMPORTÂNCIA DA COMUNICAÇÃO INTERNA E DAS ATIVIDADES DE TEAM BUILDING

Segundo o estudo que Érica Andrade efetuou sobre o Team building em Portugal e sua importância na motivação das equipas, “integrar todos os colaboradores e mostrar que eles são capazes de realizações fantásticas é justamente o ponto fulcral do Team Building. Esta é uma atividade onde dinâmicas e jogos são realizados para simular situações do dia-a-dia, permitindo tanto a prática do trabalho em equipa quanto a aprendizagem de novos conceitos. A analogia entre os desafios enfrentados e a realidade das empresas prepara o grupo para atuar com velocidade frente às mudanças e para a necessidade de apresentar resultados consistentes ” (Andrade, 2011:30). Atualmente as atividades de Team Building são oferecidas por um “vasto leque de entidades”, incidindo em “desafios desportivos, jogos de estratégia, jogos por objetivos, entre outros” (Andrade, 2011:30). “A escolha das atividades é feita tendo em consideração dois fatores: as dimensões das equipas e a fase de desenvolvimento das mesmas. Para cada fase de desenvolvimento de uma equipa, existem atividades que pelas suas características particulares conduzem a melhores resultados, dependendo se a equipa se encontra numa fase primordial, se está a atravessar por um mau momento, se a equipa se encontra numa fase de grande maturidade ou ainda se existe alguma alteração na constituição da mesma ” (Andrade, 2011:31).

Eficácia das ações de Team building para pequenas e médias empresas sob a  perspectiva do treinamento vivencial. Uma análise do fenômeno de influência de variáveis latentes sobre o espírito de equipe

Eficácia das ações de Team building para pequenas e médias empresas sob a perspectiva do treinamento vivencial. Uma análise do fenômeno de influência de variáveis latentes sobre o espírito de equipe

O treinamento como ferramenta fomentadora do comportamento funcional vem sendo muito discutido por diversos pesquisadores. Percebe-se que a diferença entre os conceitos de treinamento e desenvolvimento está cada vez mais imperceptível e que o treinamento tem ultrapassado as barreiras de um processo estático para se adequar às exigências funcionais em um sentido mais amplo e completo. Também, verifica-se que essa mudança tem como indutor principal o reconhecimento e/ou comprovação de resultados consistentes dentro das empresas por meio do investimento em pessoas. Nesse sentido, este estudo apresentou o team building como uma ferramenta capaz de proporcionar um treinamento com resultados positivos para Pequenas e Médias empresas. A partir da análise de conteúdo realizada, verificou-se que o team building trabalha com foco na edificação do espírito de equipe, tendo como objetivo unificar o grupo e conscientizar o indivíduo quanto a sua competência e contribuição para o alcance do objetivo empresarial. Para consubstanciar essa idéia foi montado um modelo teórico cujo objetivo foi verificar a influência do treinamento sobre o espírito de equipe, colocando-o frente à influência que a liderança e o incentivo à produtividade também podem provocar. Para validar esse modelo, foi utilizada uma técnica estatística com abordagem multivariada, SEM-PLS, a qual também proporcionou a verificação da força de relação existente entre as variáveis trabalhadas e a hierarquia da influência que as variáveis processo de treinamento, liderança e incentivo à produtividade exercem sobre o espírito de equipe, considerando uma relação entre 3(três) variáveis independentes e 1(uma) dependente. O resultado da pesquisa confirmou a influência das características do treinamento sobre o espírito de equipe, ressaltando a importância de observar seu desenvolvimento e o pós- treinamento e justificando a defesa de que técnicas como team building podem contribuir efetivamente para o sucesso de PME's, tendo em vista a compatibilidade dessa ferramenta com as expectativas do mercado atual em relação às pessoas. No geral, a defesa da idéia de que a vantagem competitiva de uma empresa de pequeno e médio porte pode ser efetivada através da valorização e motivação de seus funcionários, o que pode ser proporcionado a partir da utilização de recursos detentores de características fomentadores desses requisitos, a exemplo do team building, foi justificativa. Por fim, a partir dos resultados da pesquisa foram levantadas discussões acerca da questão norteadora deste trabalho e das hipóteses apontadas, assim como de prováveis implicações para gestão.

MILITARY ETHICAL META-KNOWLEDGE AND INDOOR TEAM BUILDING GAMES.  FROM PROMISE TO PRAXIS

MILITARY ETHICAL META-KNOWLEDGE AND INDOOR TEAM BUILDING GAMES. FROM PROMISE TO PRAXIS

In relation with all of the above, practice and feeedback play a major role in developing meta-cognition and, hence, in facilitating thorough and comprehensive means of acquiring and applying knowledge in a critical manner. Thus, we dare say that some of the most important signs of meta-cognition are informed educated assumptions and constructive criticism. Concerning this, the literature in the fi eld provides a number of features to describe individuals who are both good “problem solvers and deep thinkers” [11] because (and we only selectively mention some of the thirty seven characteristics of this type of person) they understand, create, are flexible, are fair minded, make relevant links, empathize, infer, persevere, communicate clearly, clarify information, manage impulsivity, take responsible risks, show a questioning mind, wonder, are lifelong learners, understand cause and effect, are autonomous, show respect, think interdependently, etc. The very frame provided by team building contributes extensively to the development of such abilities since one of facilitator’s roles in such games is to provide “positive, constructive, and challenging feedback” in order to “establish a learning culture and build trust among teams and groups”

Barriers Virtual Design Team Knowledge Sharing

Barriers Virtual Design Team Knowledge Sharing

networks (Alavi and Tiwana, 2002).Stough et al. (2000) observe that virtual teams, for example, present a new way of organizing global workforces to harness information age opportunity for mobilizing hidden manpower. Holton (2001) reports that identifying and applying appropriate team building strategies for a virtual environment will not only enhance design team effectiveness but will also positively impact the quality of working life for virtual team members (Mohamed et al., 2004). By linking individual engineers with different and corresponding skills enhance design knowledge sharing in virtual design teams (Liu and Phillips, 2011).It also adds up to virtual team success by encouraging more efficient use of team resources while decreasing operation errors. Virtual design teams skilled at knowledge sharing should expect increased interconnection and fulfilment among team members(Rosen et al.,2007). A well-developed virtual design teams to work more efficiently by sharing cognitive labour. In particular, as team members interact, they may develop insights into the unique skills and special expertise held by their colleagues (Rosen et al., 2007).Learning ‘‘who knows what’’ gives members the opportunity to access the individual customized knowledge repositories held by each team member. Thus, individual team members need not be experts on every important team-related issue; they only have to understand who on the team has the expert knowledge needed to answer an inquiry or who can direct them to other sources with the desired knowledge (Rosen et al ., 2007).Virtual team formation may significantly reduce design team costs of doing business. Evidence showed that expenses associated with travel, varied daily allowances, and accommodation may be reduced or eliminated as virtual teams communicate through the use of technology (Baskerville & Nandhakumar, 2007). For instance, IBM estimated a $50 million saving in travel and downtime costs through the use of virtual teams (Odiwe, 2009). A further advantage of virtual communication is that electronic communication records are retained and archives can be accessed to monitor team activities, review team performance, and evaluate member contribution (Martins et al., 2004). These advantages facilitate better knowledge acquisition and integration (Odiwe, 2009). Hunsaker and Hunsaker (2008) noted that virtual teams enable design teams to find the most qualified individuals for a particular job, regardless of their location.Virtual teams allows design teams to have a faster response time to give them a competitive advantage and provide greater flexibility to individuals working from home or on the road.

Adaptation to unforeseen change in geographically dispersed mission teams : the roles of team training and team familiarity

Adaptation to unforeseen change in geographically dispersed mission teams : the roles of team training and team familiarity

Research also points out to team familiarity as a factor capable of impacting positively team satisfaction (Stark & Bierly, 2009; Bierly, Stark & Kessler, 2009) and capable of compensating for the effects of spatial distance (Assudani, 2011). Spatial distance, beyond contributing to create knowledge gaps in teams, has been found to halt the coordination flow and to cause substantial delays in problem solving and in team processes during initial stages of team member interaction (Herbsleb & Mockus, 2003). Team familiarity may be the answer managers seek in order to help geographically separated team members to mitigate the problems inherent to their condition once it allows teams to maintain their effectiveness even in circumstances where communication is less frequent. According to Griffith, Sawyer and Neale (2003) the knowledge team members need to access in order to perform their tasks well become more accessible when the team has formed some form of collective knowledge. Plus, because team familiarity provides team members a common ground, they should more easily anticipate each others’ actions, understand with more accuracy the meaning of the messages exchanged during team interaction, and conceive and adopt more effective procedures.

Building a Neural Computer

Building a Neural Computer

When informally speaking of a neural computer, one could be motivated about what could it be like, the language to program such a machine. The language that we will use is the one of partial recursive functions (PRF). Although primitive when compared to modern computer languages, it is simple and powerful enough to program any mechanism with same computing power as a Turing machine w.r.t. the class of functions it can compute. Surely, building complex programs with this language would be very difficult and more appropriate languages exist. For our purposes however, this language is suited.

Storyline: consists on a very effective tool that literally tells our recommendations and main conclusions like a “story”. This new concept was one of the most applied by the team during the project as we had to create one different storyline for each one of our business opportunities analyzed. As this storyline was an executive summary, it would guide the whole presentation in a way that our message would be effectively transmitted and would capture the audience’s attention. I truly understood the importance to write the storyline before anything else, as it would guide the production of the next slides (as the slides and story headers had to follow it) and would ensure that I was presenting with a coherent structure.

em sentido contrário. A falta de robustez observada no RoboCup prendeu- -se essencialmente com o facto de não ser possível utilizar a bússola para ajudar no cálculo da orientação do robô. Não foi possível utilizar a bússola, porque o campo destinado aos jogos da equipa MINHO TEAM era atravessado por um campo magnético extremamente elevado. Este campo magnético era sentido essencialmente numa linha que dividia o campo em duas partes iguais e que unia as duas balizas, além disso fazia com que a bússola nessa zona variasse cerca de 180° em relação ao ângulo que o robô efectivamente tinha.

A key review of building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) systems

A key review of building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) systems

In [42], electricity production and cooling energy saving effects of a BIPV system was evaluated. The system was made of thin film a-Si triple junction solar cells. The solar absorptance of the roof decreased from 0.75 to 0.38 after the BIPV installation. The results indicated that the daily energy output range of the system was 0.15 kWh/m2 (in winter) – 0.4 kWh/m2 (in summer) and the average system efficiency for the entire evaluation period was found to be 4.6%. Although the effect on HVAC energy consumption could not be determined due to the repairs on the HVAC system, the authors had concluded that such a BIPV system installed on an office building in Phoenix, AZ would result in 9.6 kWh/m2 and 2.9 MJ/m2 annual cooling and heating energy savings, respectively. In [43], electrical and thermal performance of a PV system integrated as cladding components to building envelope was analyzed. The tests were conducted on a test reference environment (TRE). Four equal sized p-Si PV modules (121-cell glass-glass, 64-cell glass-glass, 121-cell glass-tedlar and 121-cell transparent tedlar-glass) were tested under different air flow conditions. The glass- glass 64-cell PV module showed the highest thermal efficiency while the glass-glass 121-cell PV module showed the worst electric behavior. Also, the electrical efficiency of the glass-tedlar PV module was higher than that of the tedlar-glass one. After that, the collected data were used for the development and validation of a mathematical model. In another TRE work [44], a double skin BIPV system was modeled. Experimental work was conducted in a test reference environment of Lleida (TRE-L). The TRE-L was a well- insulated wooden box, which can be rotated to any inclination.

A decision support system for assessing trade-offs between ecosystem management goals: an application in Portugal

A decision support system for assessing trade-offs between ecosystem management goals: an application in Portugal

The quality of a good DSS depends on the quality of the prescriptions generator [24]. The prescriptions generator is instrumental for building reliable scenarios and policy models. This module integrates a prescription writer and a growth and yield model that allows automated generation for all strata of all data that are pertinent for scenario analysis. Interface with the user is provided through input forms that allow for the specification of simulation parameters and silvicultural practices (e.g., ranges of feasible values for parameters such as debarking cycle). To compute cork and holm oak growth and timber yields, the growth and yield model SUBER v. 4.0 (Instituto Superior de Agronomia, Lisbon, Portugal) is included in the simulation module [22]. It further provides estimates of carbon stocks in the tree above the ground. The structure of the module is flexible and independent from other components of the system in order to allow for updates and changes in the growth and yield simulator without affecting the rest of the system. Thus, the growth and yield models are encapsulated in a FORTRAN executable file that is called by the interactive module developed with the software MS VB.NET (Microsoft Corporation, Redmond, WA, USA). The interface is built upon input forms that allow users to specify simulation parameters and silvicultural practices. The user may define ranges, for instance, for different parameters such as planting density, cork extraction periodicity, and thinning interval to simulate silviculture strategies in all strata.

Pathways to Sustainable Development and Poverty Eradication A Synthesis for Policy Makers

Pathways to Sustainable Development and Poverty Eradication A Synthesis for Policy Makers

Inter-governmental organizations, interna- tional financial institutions, non-governmen- tal organizations, the private sector and the international community as a whole can play a critical role in providing technical and finan- cial assistance in developing countries. Enabling a smooth transition to a green economy will require a sustained international effort by a variety of actors. In this regard, current levels of overseas development assis- tance may be insufficient and need to be re-evaluated in light of the scale of transformation required. Additionally, the United Nations and its partners will need to mobilize around its long history of supporting national capacity building and training activities, and utilize this expertise to support national green economy efforts. South-South cooperation is likely to be important: many developing country experiences and successes in achieving a green economy can provide valuable impetus, ideas and means for other developing countries to address similar concerns – particularly given the impressive gains and leadership that have been demonstrated in practice. 153 South-South
