...Barriers to effective communication between researchers and managers can ultimately result in barriers to the application of scientific knowledge and technology for land management. Both individual and organizational barriers are important in terms of how they affect the first three stages of the innovation-decision process: (1) knowledge, where an individual is exposed to innovation and develops an understanding of how it works; (2) evaluation, where an individual evaluates advantages and disadvantages and forms a favorable or unfavorable attitude toward innovation; and (3) decision, where an individual engages in activities that lead to a choice to either adopt or reject the innovation. Communication studies provides insight into potential influences to the communication and use of research results by federal land managers. Effective communication refers to the development of a common understanding between the research communicator and the manager or practitioner about both the existence and utility of an innovation. Communication research reveals that people frequently report leaving the same encounter with different perceptions of that encounter. So, it is not surprising that a scientist presents results in what they perceive to be clear terms and then the land manager returns to their daily tasks with a modified perspective of what the scientist intended to communicate, with continued uncertainty, or with lack of interest that leads to passive rejection......

...Dorand Xhelili-121019 Paper Publishing vs E-Publishing History of Paper Publishing The introduction of printing created a medium for communication like no other. "Until the advent of radio it was the great means of communication". As paper became more widely available in the thirteenth century writing became more prominent. When the need to reproduce texts became greater, Gutenberg's movable type came about followed by a variety of other printing processes. By 1500 somewhere around 12,000,000 books in 35,000 editions had been printed. The world's first newspaper was published in Germany in 1609. But with such volumes suddenly being distributed, regulations were made to prohibit unrestrained publishing in 1637 when England limited the number of print shops and foundries by decrees. "In the cradle years of printing opposition came chiefly from organized calligraphers and illuminators whose livelihood was threatened. The content of manuscripts was seldom in question; most were classics or ecclesiastical writings and many were in Greek or Latin, which made them inaccessible to all but a few scholars and churchmen. But with the coming of the seventeenth century, printing was being viewed as a threat to established power, both religious and political. Though people like John Milton spoke out in favor of freedom of press and against requiring official censoring before publication of any text, governments' fear of political unrest kept even the first......

...PROJECT MANAGEMENT (THE NETHERLANDS) Abstract th Originally developed in the mid-20 century, project management has become a distinctive way to manage business activities nowadays. Another important development is virtually universal recognition of the role of innovation and technology in the corporate change, growth and profitability. It is unsurprising that development of innovation is often run as a project. Yet, theoretically both project management and innovation studies have evolved over time as distinctively separate disciplines. In this paper we make an attempt to conceptualise the innovation project management and to specify the idiosyncratic nature of innovation projects as opposed to conventional projects. By doing so, we contribute to the nascent academic debate on the interplay between innovation and project management. Key words: project management, innovation, technology 1. Introduction This paper is concerned with three topics and the interplay between them, namely “Innovation”, “Research and Development (R&D)” and “Project Management”. The interest in these topics has exploded recently as they emerged both on the policy agenda and in the corporate strategies. The contribution of technological innovation to national economic growth has been well established in the economic literature. In the last couple of decades, new technologies, new industries, and new business models have powered impressive gains in productivity and GDP growth.......

...DESKTOP PUBLISHING Desktop Publishing Software allows you to use your computer (sitting on your desktop) as if it were a publishing house.  You can write and edit documents, and print them. With DTP software, you can generally do a much better job, and use the proper typography. Bear in mind that DTP software is designed for you to print something, and give away the printed material. It’s rarely suitable to give away the DTP files, as they’re typically reliant on the configuration of your own personal computer.  If you want to exchange fancy document files with people, you’re better off using a format more suited to that sort of thing; like HTML on the world wide web, PDF (Portable Document Format) for more general purpose situations (it’s prime focus is to make documents printable on different systems in a consistent manner), or RTF (Rich Text Format) documents for when you want to exchange electronic documents between different computer systems, and need something a bit better than just plain text. Desktop Publisher is a small-scale equivalent of a printing press on a personal computer.  Whereas a word processor is chiefly aimed at being something that can produce a document, “desktop publishing” is about laying out things on pages (it may be a single document, it could be several separate articles in a single publication, and can include images and diagrams). You have full control over what's printed on a page, where it's printed, how it's printed, and how printing is......

...Term Paper for Communication We communicate in many different mediums. Modern communication is predominantly shaped by the advancement in technology. The human race has come a long way from “tribal epoch” to the “electronic epoch”. (Wood 305-308) However, the electronic approach to communication has grown exponentially during the last decade. Most communication mediums we use today such as cellular phones, the Internet and television are all associated with advancement in technology. In many ways the electronic mediums are similar to the natural form of communication, while they are different on other levels. Modern mobile cellular phones deliver messages similar to the traditional phones, but this new medium has changed the nature of communication. The modern structure of wireless global communication was predicted in 1945, with the “geostationary” radio communication “satellite”, long before the cell phone was ever invented. (Clarke 305-308)The geostationary satellites are positioned on a specific Even today cellular phones use radio technology similar to FM or AM radios. The invention of the traditional landline telephone has created an “interpersonal medium” (Burkell 312-323) with which one person can communicate personal messages to another person verbally. Today because modern cellular phones have revolutionized the device, now it can do much more than just two way communication between two individuals. The wave of smart-phones introduced to the market has created a...

...changes in the firm. Since our research site was in a relatively stable business environment and followed consistent business practices, it serves as a quasi-natural experimental (Meyer 1995) test-bed to evaluate the effects of a new IT program on productivity improvement. The firm’s recent large investment in IT was an abrupt and permanent intervention in the time series of the firm’s production data following the implementation of the new IT program. Our empirical results from both regression analysis and Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) indicated significant improvement in the firm’s productivity following the implementation of its new IT program, documenting the value impact of IT investment in public accounting firms. The rest of the paper is organized as follows. In Section II, we describe the research motivation and background. In Section III, we discuss how our qualitative analysis leads to the research question for quantitative examination. In Section IV, we describe the two estimation models we use to evaluate changes in firm productivity and present our empirical results. In Section V, we conclude with a discussion of the implication of our results. II.
