In other posts, I have provided a quick video introduction to the topic, and have discussed the ideas behind discourse theorythe main questions that students and researchers will likely ask as they set up their discourse analysis projectand the things that are worth keeping in mind when working with East Asian language sources. In this post, I offer a handy set of tools for doing a text-based, qualitative discourse analysis. You can go through the whole list of work-steps and tick each item off in turn, which is a good way to practice these methods.
In general, the forces of competition are imposing a need for more effective decision making at all levels in organizations. Progressive Approach to Modeling: Modeling for decision making involves two distinct parties, one is the decision-maker and the other is the model-builder known as the analyst.
Therefore, the analyst must be equipped with more than a set of analytical methods. Specialists in model building are often tempted to study a problem, and then go off in isolation to develop an elaborate mathematical model for use by the manager i. Unfortunately the manager may not understand this model and may either use it blindly or reject it entirely.
The specialist may feel that the manager is too ignorant and unsophisticated to appreciate the model, while the manager may feel that the specialist lives in a dream world of unrealistic assumptions and irrelevant mathematical language.
Such miscommunication can be avoided if the manager works with the specialist to develop first a simple model that provides a crude but understandable analysis. After the manager has built up confidence in this model, additional detail and sophistication can be added, perhaps progressively only a bit at a time.
This process requires an investment of time on the part of the manager and sincere interest on the part of the specialist in solving the manager's real problem, rather than in creating and trying to explain sophisticated models.
This progressive model building is often referred to as the bootstrapping approach and is the most important factor in determining successful implementation of a decision model.
Moreover the bootstrapping approach simplifies otherwise the difficult task of model validating and verification processes. What is a System: Systems are formed with parts put together in a particular manner in order to pursuit an objective.
The relationship between the parts determines what the system does and how it functions as a whole. Therefore, the relationship in a system are often more important than the individual parts. In general, systems that are building blocks for other systems are called subsystems The Dynamics of a System: A system that does not change is a static i.
Many of the systems we are part of are dynamic systems, which are they change over time.

We refer to the way a system changes over time as the system's behavior. And when the system's development follows a typical pattern we say the system has a behavior pattern. Whether a system is static or dynamic depends on which time horizon you choose and which variables you concentrate on.
The time horizon is the time period within which you study the system.
The variables are changeable values on the system. In deterministic modelsa good decision is judged by the outcome alone. However, in probabilistic models, the decision-maker is concerned not only with the outcome value but also with the amount of risk each decision carries As an example of deterministic versus probabilistic models, consider the past and the future:Thomas Louis Berger was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on July 20, , the only child of Charles and Mildred Bubbe Berger.
