Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to present the results of the research in the sphere of education and preparation of Russian executives in view of mentality and elements of national model of management.

Design/methodology/approach

The research consisted in analysis of modern developments in the sphere of HR management in socio-economic systems. The authors used the materials on structuring and classification of managerial activities from various points of view. The research is based on recent tendencies in the sphere of application of intensive educational technologies.

Findings

Ten levels of managerial activities were distinguished on the basis of the performed research. Each of these levels is a new step of qualitative significance and complication of managerial activities. In order to achieve new and higher levels of professionalism, a model of professional development of executives was created, which consists of several blocks, which stimulates obtaining the knowledge and acquisition of certain skills in this sphere. The structure of problem and situational game “Professionalism of executives” and methodology of evaluation of activities of game participants are given.

Practical implications

Using game modeling for determination of the level of professional activities will allow evaluating specialists, in particular, executives, and determine qualitative evaluation of the level of their competence in various aspects of their activities.

Originality/value

The research possesses a value for lecturers, managers, and consultants of educational establishments who perform training, additional training, and development of professional competence of executive in organizations of any profile in view of national mentality.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this chapter is to study institutional contradictions in the existing concept of institutional economy.

Methodology

The authors use the methodology of neo-institutional analysis, based on qualitative description and modeling of the process of institutionalization of socioeconomic phenomena and processes, logical analysts of their essence, advantages and drawbacks, and the method of graphical presentation of information (method of formalization).

Results

Graphical interpretation of institutional economy as a social institute on qualitative analysis reflects the determined institutional contradictions of this concept that are related to the dual character of the role of information, violation of the logic of the process of institutionalization, and uncertainty toward information exchange. The authors determine the institutional gaps in the conceptual model of information economy that show a necessity for the development of its methodological provision.

Recommendations

The determined logical mismatches in the model of information economy show nonoptimality of its concept and existence of perspectives, which depicts a necessity for its improvement – which is the main recommendation of the authors.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is the development and study of capacitive coupling electrodes with the ability to monitor the quality of the skin–electrode contact in the process of electrocardiogram (ECG) diagnostics. The study’s scope embraces experimental identification of distortions contributed into the recorded ECG signal at various degrees of disturbance of the skin–electrode contact.

Design/methodology/approach

A capacitive coupling electrode is designed and manufactured. A large number of experiments was carried out to record ECG signals with different quality of the skin–electrode contact. Using spectral analysis, the characteristic distortions of the ECG signals in the event of contact disturbance are revealed.

Findings

It was found that the violation of the skin–electrode contact leads to significant deterioration in the recorded signal. In this case, the most severe distortions appear with various violations of the skin–electrode contact of two sensors in one lead. It has been experimentally shown that the developed sensor allows monitoring the quality of the contact, and therefore, improvement of the quality of signal registration, enabled by the use of bespoke processing algorithms.

Practical implications

These sensors will be used in personalized medicine devices and tele-ECG devices.

Originality/value

In this work, authors studied the effect of the skin–electrode contact of a capacitive electrode with the body on the quality of the recorded ECG signal. Based on the studies, the necessity of monitoring contact was shown to improve the quality of diagnostics provided by personalized medicine devices; the capacitive sensor with contact feedback was developed.
