Crafting Strategy That Measures Up  [cached]
Kwaku Ahenkora,Ofosuhene Peasah
International Journal of Business and Management , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v6n10p278
Abstract: The strategic management literature is replete with seldom-tested directives on crafting strategy. This study used corporate historical analysis of Proctor and Gamble (P&G) to examine the extent to which the company’s near decade (2000-2009) strategies reflect the theoretical rationale of Thompson and Strickland’s popular textbook’s ‘10 Commandments’ of crafting strategy. P&G attributed the decade’s performance to the choices it made by designing the company to lead with clear strategies, core strengths needed to win in the industry, rigorous cash and cost discipline and diversity of leadership. P&G’s strategy partially reflected the predominantly economic themes of the 10 commandments. The company also leveraged dynamic capabilities and harnessed alliance competence, concepts embedded in the evolution of strategic management.
Speculative Staging for Interpreter Optimization  [PDF]
Stefan Brunthaler
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: Interpreters have a bad reputation for having lower performance than just-in-time compilers. We present a new way of building high performance interpreters that is particularly effective for executing dynamically typed programming languages. The key idea is to combine speculative staging of optimized interpreter instructions with a novel technique of incrementally and iteratively concerting them at run-time. This paper introduces the concepts behind deriving optimized instructions from existing interpreter instructions---incrementally peeling off layers of complexity. When compiling the interpreter, these optimized derivatives will be compiled along with the original interpreter instructions. Therefore, our technique is portable by construction since it leverages the existing compiler's backend. At run-time we use instruction substitution from the interpreter's original and expensive instructions to optimized instruction derivatives to speed up execution. Our technique unites high performance with the simplicity and portability of interpreters---we report that our optimization makes the CPython interpreter up to more than four times faster, where our interpreter closes the gap between and sometimes even outperforms PyPy's just-in-time compiler.
Diálogo "interessantíssimo": Roger Bastide e o Modernismo
Peixoto, Fernanda;
Revista Brasileira de Ciências Sociais , 1999, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-69091999000200008
Abstract: this paper attempts to outline the multiple dimensions of the dialogue between roger bastide and the brazilian modernists, especially mário de andrade. following the concerns of the brazilian "modernist" school, bastide establishes his contact with the country - with the arts, the literature and the folklore -, reconsiders mário de andrade's interpretations about aleijadinho and the baroque, and especially, shares the formulations of this "modernist" leader about the "authenticity"of the brazilian culture. the author seeks to show that bastide, through this interlocution, has earned his place as a foreign interpreter of brazilian culture and society.
Approaches to Interpreter Composition  [PDF]
Edd Barrett,Carl Friedrich Bolz,Laurence Tratt
Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: In this paper, we compose six different Python and Prolog VMs into 4 pairwise compositions: one using C interpreters; one running on the JVM; one using meta-tracing interpreters; and one using a C interpreter and a meta-tracing interpreter. We show that programs that cross the language barrier frequently execute faster in a meta-tracing composition, and that meta-tracing imposes a significantly lower overhead on composed programs relative to mono-language programs.
The Interpreter In An Undergraduate Compilers Course  [PDF]
John H. E. Lasseter
Computer Science , 2014, DOI: 10.1145/2676723.2677314
Abstract: An undergraduate compilers course poses significant challenges to students, in both the conceptual richness of the major components and in the programming effort necessary to implement them. In this paper, I argue that a related architecture, the interpreter, serves as an effective conceptual framework in which to teach some of the later stages of the compiler pipeline. This framework can serve both to unify some of the major concepts that are taught in a typical undergraduate course and to structure the implementation of a semester-long compiler project.

An Interpreter for Quantum Circuits
Lucas Helms,Ruben Gamboa
Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science , 2013, DOI: 10.4204/eptcs.114.7
Abstract: This paper describes an ACL2 interpreter for "netlists" describing quantum circuits. Several quantum gates are implemented, including the Hadamard gate H, which rotates vectors by 45 degrees, necessitating the use of irrational numbers, at least at the logical level. Quantum measurement presents an especially difficult challenge, because it requires precise comparisons of irrational numbers and the use of random numbers. This paper does not address computation with irrational numbers or the generation of random numbers, although future work includes the development of pseudo-random generators for ACL2.
A Literature Review of Job Crafting and Its Related Researches  [PDF]
Changyi Peng
Journal of Human Resource and Sustainability Studies (JHRSS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jhrss.2018.61022
Abstract: Job crafting is a hot topic in the field of organizational behavior researches and human resource management. Job crafting is a bottom to up behavior, which is different from traditional up to bottom job design, representing the staff’s proactivity. Under job crafting, staffs incline to redefine and reshape the job content, working mode and cooperation relationship with teammates. Besides, job crafting can optimize organizational design and working relationship, which improves the staff’s working identification and adversity coping ability. Based on the previous research results, this article attempts to summarize the definition, measurement, antecedents and consequences of job crafting. Meanwhile, this article also puts forward future research directions of job crafting.
Impact of Job Crafting on Quality of Care: The Moderating Effect of Commitment  [PDF]
Marina Romeo, Montserrat Yepes-Baldó, Kristina Westerberg, Maria Nordin
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2018.912151
Abstract: The present study is part of a broader research project aimed at the analysis of the job environment of eldercare and nursing homes employees. In this context, the aim of this research is to analyze the direct effect of job crafting, specifically, task, relational and cognitive crafting, on quality of care, and the moderator effect of commitment on these relationships. A correlational cross-sectional design was used. A non-probabilistic accidental sample of 530 eldercare and nursing home employees was recruited. Standardized instruments were used to assess employees’ job crafting, quality of care and commitment. Regression analyses with PROCESS were used to test the moderated model. Results showed a moderated effect of exchange, values, and affective commitment on the relationship between cognitive job crafting and quality of care, but not on the relationship of task and relational job crafting and quality of care. This study highlights the importance of nurses’ job crafting activities for quality of care. Quality of care depends on cognitive job crafting among nurses with high levels of organizational commitment. Those employees with high levels of need commitment perceived low levels of quality of care, independently of their job crafting.
