1. Richl , Peter. From Single Production Sites to a Truly Global Company.

Degree: Master, Master of Business Administration Program in International Business, 2015, NSYSU

The following Master Thesis was developed with the intention of providing recommendation to global companies on how to organize coordination processes between headquarters and subsidiaries. Companies that have acquired their subsidiaries without coordination strategies often act as loosely organized corporate systems consisting of single operation plants and can miss out on potential synergies. Therefore, theories about coordination and communication structures are presented in order to investigate potential weaknesses in these type of corporations. Insight gathered from interviews with ten management representatives from a globally operated company highlighted the reality of such issues. To tackle these issues, eight major recommendations are proposed in order to foster coordination within the corporation. First, an employee exchange program between the different affiliates would increase knowledge sharing. Second, guideline processes should be implemented. The third recommendation is that communication processes between subsidiaries and headquarters could be enhanced by using the HR departments as the primary communication facilitators. Furthermore, video messages from the CEO to all subsidiaries encourages the commitment to the corporate identity. During General Manager meetings, action plans must be formalized in order to transform strategy into action processes. Enforcing the utilization of the Intranet in order to enhance knowledge-sharing between the individual entities is recommended, and finally, the internal newsletter (Quicknews) should provide brief but informative content, and should be issued more often. This thesis has implications for all businesses that acquired previously independently-operated subsidiaries. It investigates potential issues in corporations with weak ties to their subsidiaries and lists remedies to create synergies by focusing more on coordination and communication processes and their structures. Advisors/Committee Members: T. M. Chang (committee member), Wei-Lun Chang (chair), Chao-Hsien Sung (committee member), Ying-Chun Li (chair).

Subjects/Keywords: independent subsidiaries; centralized structures; synergies plants

2. Al-Akashi, Falah Hassan Ali. Using Wikipedia Knowledge and Query Types in a New Indexing Approach for Web Search Engines .

Degree: 2014, University of Ottawa

The Web is comprised of a vast quantity of text. Modern search engines struggle to index it independent of the structure of queries and type of Web data, and commonly use indexing based on Web‘s graph structure to identify high-quality relevant pages. However, despite the apparent widespread use of these algorithms, Web indexing based on human feedback and document content is controversial. There are many fundamental questions that need to be addressed, including: How many types of domains/websites are there in the Web? What type of data is in each type of domain? For each type, which segments/HTML fields in the documents are most useful? What are the relationships between the segments? How can web content be indexed efficiently in all forms of document configurations? Our investigation of these questions has led to a novel way to use Wikipedia to find the relationships between the query structures and document configurations throughout the document indexing process and to use them to build an efficient index that allows fast indexing and searching, and optimizes the retrieval of highly relevant results. We consider the top page on the ranked list to be highly important in determining the types of queries. Our aim is to design a powerful search engine with a strong focus on how to make the first page highly relevant to the user, and on how to retrieve other pages based on that first page. Through processing the user query using the Wikipedia index and determining the type of the query, our approach could trace the path of a query in our index, and retrieve specific results for each type. We use two kinds of data to increase the relevancy and efficiency of the ranked results: offline and real-time. Traditional search engines find it difficult to use these two kinds of data together, because building a real-time index from social data and integrating it with the index for the offline data is difficult in a traditional distributed index. As a source of offline data, we use data from the Text Retrieval Conference (TREC) evaluation campaign. The web track at TREC offers researchers chance to investigate different retrieval approaches for web indexing and searching. The crawled offline dataset makes it possible to design powerful search engines that extends current methods and to evaluate and compare them. We propose a new indexing method, based on the structures of the queries and the content of documents. Our search engine uses a core index for offline data and a hash index for real-time V data, which leads to improved performance. The TREC Web track evaluation of our experiments showed that our approach can be successfully employed for different types of queries. We evaluated our search engine on different sets of queries from TREC 2010, 2011 and 2012 Web tracks. Our approach achieved very good results in the TREC 2010 training queries. In the TREC 2011 testing queries, our approach was one of the six best compared to all other approaches (including those that used a very large corpus of 500 million documents), and it…

3. Danielian, Hasmik J. District level practices in data driven decision making.

Degree: EdD, Education (Leadership), 2009, University of Southern California

Forty years after the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, numerous school reforms have attempted to tackle the same problems initially addressed by the ESEA. Most recently, The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001, the latest in the series of educational reform initiatives, distinguishes itself by its unparalleled focus on accountability.; As mandated by NCLB, policy makers had hoped that publishing disaggregated data on standardized test scores would result in increased awareness for educators of existing achievement gaps  – in short, create a "culture of inquiry" where the data creates an atmosphere that promotes awareness. However, what this chain of assumptions failed to take into account was the challenges associated with attempting to implement increased student achievement for all students through data-driven decision making (DDDM). The extant research on DDDM suggests that conditions at the district level (as well as at the school and state levels) clearly impact the nature and extent of DDDM that is put in place at a given district.; This qualitative research study adds to the field literature by developing an increased understanding of DDDM by district leaders in 4 districts. The study focused specifically on superintendents, assistant superintendents, and assessment and /or technology office leaders known for their effectiveness in the use of data-driven decision making to improve and inform instruction that results in increased student achievement.; Each of the primary sections in this study, examine in careful detail the six, key themes that were generated by the qualitative data; these six themes are: the No Child Left Behind Act and the impact of this law on data use, the Processes of DDDM, the Types of data utilized, the Culture of data use, the District Structures/Practices with regards to data, and the Challenges to DDDM in each district.; Consequently, this study will be useful to district leaders who intend to utilize data-driven decision making to ensure school/district improvement. For districts that do not currently use data-driven decision making, it is hoped that the findings will be both inspirational as well as material in assisting districts to form a theory of action. Advisors/Committee Members: Datnow, Amanda (Committee Chair), Brewer, Dominic J. (Committee Member), Vargas, Edward Lee (Committee Member).
