Companies can reduce their costs and increase their sales by improving control over their supply chains. Effective control of supply chains requires good quality information and rapid, accurate communications. Standard article numbering provides the practical foundation for both. The evolution of article numbering is discussed from its inception in the 1970s to the internationalisation of standards in the 1980s and 1990s.

Abstract

This article seeks to investigate the individualistic ideas, practices, and student identities that developed in correspondence education in the mid twentieth century. In doing so a number of questions about the individualistic pedagogy and identities in correspondence education are posed. How was individualism to be achieved? What pedagogic practices were used? Who could students learn from? What was the desired identity of the students? How were the student’s material circumstances understood? In attempting to answer these questions the article aims to increase understanding of the individual pedagogy and the construction of the ‘independent learner’ at work in correspondence education during its golden age.

Abstract

The paper demonstrates that management and organization studies (MOS) differ if we consider them from an Anglo‐centric point of view or if we look at them from the hybrid‐modernity of countries such as Mexico. The argument will be developed as follows. First, the relatively small attention traditionally given to MOS in Mexico is shown, and also noted is the recent change in this situation because of modernization process. Second, the paper recognizes the transformations of the organization and operation of the world under globalization and neoliberalism considering the generalization of an organizational imperative expressed in new practices and a new mode of rationality. Then the paper characterizes the recent development of MOS explaining its paradigmatic explosion and increasing fragmentation to those changes already discussed. The argument concludes by recognizing the Anglo‐centric condition of MOS and its inability to consider other realities from a decentered point of view. This condition places the urgency of a reencounter with the main agendas of MOS in countries such as Mexico in order to demonstrate the challenges faced by the discipline in a globalized but differentiated world.

Abstract

It is a point of continuing debate whether the study of public administration can in any circumstances be graced by a disciplinary label. Rhodes (1996), for example, has argued that the study of British public administration was traditionally insular, dominated for a long period by an institutionalist tradition characterized by an interest in administrative engineering, but a distaste for theory. As Rhodes also observes, this position emphasized, albeit in a traditional sense, the political and ethical context of administration public administration existed within a wider framework of accountability relationships and political and moral responsibilities. We might add to this the way government and public administration was seen as linked within a framework of administrative law, which, while not formalized in the sense of continental Europe, was important.

Abstract

Describes the efforts of the owner/directors of a private limited company to put into place a succession strategy. Considers three major themes: second generation entrepreneurs/management succession; action learning as a human resource development strategy and philosophy; and the learning organization. Concludes that people (and organizations) “learn” best from the priorities of the business, once they have been identified, and that organizational learning is really based on institutionalization of what has been learned – requisite learning.
