The Arc of Faith-Based Initiatives: Religion's Changing Role in Welfare Service Provision
The Arc of Faith-Based Initiatives: Religion's Changing Role in Welfare Service Provision By John P. Bartkowski
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 220 Pages | ISBN : 3319906674 | 3.40 MB


This volume offers an in-depth examination of a diverse range of faith-based programs implemented in three different geographical locales: family support in rural Mississippi, transitional housing in Michigan, and addiction recovery in the Pacific Northwest (Washington-Oregon). Various types of religious service providers-faith-intensive and faith-related-are carefully examined, and secular organizations also serve as an illuminating point of comparison. Among other insights, this book reveals how the "three C's" of social service provision-programmatic content, organizational culture, and ecological context-all combine to shape the delivery of welfare services in the nonprofit world. This book warns against simplistic generalizations about faith-based organizations. Faith-based providers exhibit considerable diversity and, quite often, remarkable resilience in the face of challenging social circumstances. An appreciation of these nuances is critical as policies concerning faith-based organizations continue to evolve.

Brand Platform in the Professional Sport Industry: Sustaining Growth through Innovation
Brand Platform in the Professional Sport Industry: Sustaining Growth through Innovation by Jingxuan Zheng
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 115 Pages | ISBN : 3319903527 | 2.80 MB


This book examines how the emergence of new media brings brought challenges to the North American sport industry, discussing challenges in terms of a shift from an information economy to an attention economy perspective. Historically, the arrival of new forms of media, including radio and television, were not universally supported by sports leagues, wary of existing industry relationships with stakeholders, and new media have made the multi-sided market model of professional sports leagues - which has focused on protection and exploitation of league content - inefficient, and calls for a new model to integrate new media into the market. By integrating platform theory with the Service Dominant Logic (SDL) of marketing we describe how the multi-sided market of professional sports is evolving into a platform ecosystem, and the role of its most important customers - the fans - will also evolve from end users, to value co-creators, complementors and innovators.

Collective Knowledge: How Teams and Larger Social Systems Learn, Remember, and Invent by Patrick Figge
German | PDF | 2018 | 199 Pages | ISBN : 3658221798 | 1.73 MB


Collective knowledge and the associated concepts of collectively learning, remembering and inventing are increasingly important in today's economy and society. Completing knowledge work alone is more and more difficult for individuals. Based on novel data sets which identify founders as inventors on patents and survey data collected from senior management, the author investigates questions about knowledge processing. What determines whether dispersed specialist knowledge can be located and used to complete tasks or to create new knowledge? How are social interactions organized and to what extent do individuals such as founders influence the course of action taken by the system as a whole?
