Dissertação de Mestrado em Tecnologias da Informação e Comunicação; Nos dias que correm, a implementação de sistemas ERP tornou-se cada vez mais alvo de investigação, de forma a procurar melhorias que incentivem a sua aquisição, bem como o processo antecedente à fase Time-to-Live. A implementação de sistemas ERP já tem anos de casos de estudo e é necessário elevar os processos de implementação a um nível totalmente diferente, que potencie as capacidades da equipa de implementação, melhorando as condições de implementação, tempos de resposta, índice de satisfação de clientes, etc. No mundo dos sistemas de informação, o sistema ERP deixou de ser o principal foco para as empresas, mas sim a base de algo mais, desde sistemas de gestão de relacionamento com clientes (CRM), relacionamento com fornecedores (SRM), gestão de contactos (BCM), etc.. Ao longo dos últimos anos foram identificados diversos fatores críticos de sucesso a ter em conta em cada implementação, procurando criar um guia para apoiar o trabalho do gestor de projetos. Nesse conjunto de fatores críticos, destaca-se a migração de dados, aspeto onde muitos dos projetos falham devido à sua complexidade, o que se verifica quer no caso de sistemas heterogéneos ou homogéneos. A falta de atenção dada a esta vertente leva a que os sistemas não possuam a informação necessária para que uma empresa prossiga a sua operação com normalidade. Dado este conjunto de fatores críticos...

This article reports on an exploratory study of hospice social workers’ assessment and collaborative practices related to pain management; especially caregiver concerns about patient pain. A non-randomized national survey indicated that social workers assess the components of pain but are not able to devote as much attention to it as they feel is needed. While most reported assessing patient and family needs, many do not use standardized assessment instruments. These data suggested that while social workers may understand their role in pain management they struggled for the time and tools needed to help address caregiver concerns related to pain management. This study suggests that the development of standardized assessment instruments for hospice social workers would be helpful and points to the value of team training and discussion about ways the social worker can best assist caregivers with pain management issues. Research is needed on social work interventions with caregivers related to pain to establish an evidence base for hospice social work, cement a role identity for social work in pain management, and facilitate increased interdisciplinary collaboration to improve the team response to all aspects of pain.

Terrorism can endanger innocent human life and tear the very threads that hold society together, namely, trust and security. Governments have mobilized a variety of tools in response, ranging from the political to the economic. In attempting to prevent and detect terrorist financing and other forms of material support, those offering financial services have been required to heighten their vigilance of potential terrorist abuse of those services. While protecting financial services from potential abuse, care should be taken not to deny access to those services to those most in need. Dejection and social exclusion are very often conducive to terrorism; therefore, ensuring inclusion of the disenfranchised and creating possibilities for their advancement are key parts of the broader, long-term struggle against terrorism and extremism. The paper begins with a brief description of alternative remittance system (ARS) models and their prevalence. It then covers their potential relationship with terrorist financing...

This assessment of the anti-money laundering (AML) and combating the financing of terrorism (CFT) regime of Uganda was based on the 2003 Forty Recommendations on Money Laundering and the Nine Special Recommendations on Terrorist Financing of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) (FATF 40+9), and was prepared using the AML/CFT Methodology of 2004. During the mission, the assessment team met with officials and representatives of relevant government agencies and the private sector. This report provides a summary of the AML/CFT measures in place in Uganda as of the date of completion of the on-site the mission, February 23. 2005. After describing and analyzing those measures, it provides recommendations on how certain aspects of the system could be strengthened. It also sets out Uganda s levels of compliance with the FATF 40+9 Recommendations.

There is growing interest in using messaging to drive prosocial behaviors, which contribute to investment in public goods. The authors worked with a leading nongovernmental organization in Peru to randomize nine different prorecycling messages that were crafted on the basis of best practices, prior evidence, and theories of behavioral change. Different variants emphasized information on environmental or social benefits, social comparisons, social sanctions, authority, and reminders. None of the messages had significant effects on recycling behavior. However, reducing the cost of ongoing participation by providing a recycling bin significantly increased recycling among enrolled households.

A successful knowledge-sharing effort requires a focus on more than simply the transfer of the specific knowledge. Instead, many of the activities to be undertaken need to focus on structuring and implementing the arrangement in a way that bridges both existing and potential relationship issues, and examining the form and location of the knowledge to ensure its complete transfer. In other words, while the activities used to share knowledge, such as document exchanges, presentations, job rotations, etc., are important, overcoming the factors that can impede, complicate and even harm knowledge internalization are equally important in determining the ultimate results of a knowledge-sharing effort. Accordingly, any evaluations of the Bank s knowledge-sharing efforts need to incorporate assessments of its use of activities related to understanding the form and embedded knowledge, establishing and managing appropriate administrative structures, and facilitating the transfer of the knowledge.

The objective of this paper is to share the experiences and good practices of early business registry reformers who implemented web-enabled and automated electronic business registries (e-BRs). These lessons are hoped to be of help to EU New Member countries as they embark on delivering EU-conformant e-BRs. At the same time, policymakers in other developing countries may also find these lessons of use. This paper cites examples of good practices rather than best practices. As elsewhere in the development agenda, solutions that have worked well in some countries may not work in other local circumstances. In the case of e-BRs, success depends on a broader set of reforms; as will be discussed in a subsequent chapter, e-BRs require a supportive legal and regulatory infrastructure, such as electronic signature laws and document authentication. A needs assessment and analysis of the options in the local country context need to be conducted in order to find the most relevant best practice options for a specific country. Nevertheless...

This study presents the vision and implementation recommendations for the electronic identity based service delivery framework (EISDF) in Vietnam. It also delineates the roles to be played by the diverse stakeholders (private, public, development community, etc.) in the field. The study recommends various relevant and innovative electronic identity (eID) services that can be implemented to transform and enhance the accountability and efficiency of service delivery across sectors. These recommendations are based on the stocktaking of international experiences and identified possibilities based on the country assessment. Special emphasis is placed on eID systems that operate on mobile phones, and on those that have the potential of being scaled up by both the public and private sectors in Vietnam. The eID systems can help reduce identity fraud and enable individuals to avail of services more securely in a variety of contexts as in mobile banking and mobile applications for health care.

Identity management (IM) plays a critical role in virtually every management process involving personnel or material, particularly in the Department of Defense (DoD). "Identity management" means the ability to uniquely and unambiguously identity people and entities and their interactions and interrelationship, and also the ability to track their mobility in a timely fashion. Currently, Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG) IM suffers from inefficient data sharing because of a lack of systems integration, just as in the civilian domain. For many ESG IM processes, technology is not being used at all. Large reports and manifests are being generated by hand, are then re-typed and E-mailed, to manually update systems. The lack of timely fielding equipment and proper training is resulting in problems with implementing IM information technology (IT) solutions. The purpose of this thesis is to establish and identify best practices and technologies to help resolve ESG IM problems. The scope for this thesis is limited to personnel IM issues at the operational, unit level to show ESG Commanders and other decision makers how best practices and technologies can be implemented. These best practices and technologies may provide similar results outside the ESG and be applicable to other DoD operations and the civilian domain as well. Chapter I provides background information to define the many different aspects of IM and explains why IM is important for the DoD. Chapter II provides an overview of DoD human resource management and Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) information systems. It also reviews the Non Combatant Evacuation Operation Tracking System (NTS) and the Defense Biometric Identification System (DBIDS). Chapter III provides an introduction to the ESG and then explains how IM plays a role in everyday operations. The challenges of ESG personnel IM and IT are addressed...

This report is the second in a program of evaluations that the independent evaluation group (IEG) is conducting on the learning that takes place through World Bank projects. Learning and knowledge are treated as parts of a whole and are presumed to be mutually reinforcing. The evaluation program addresses the following overarching questions: how well has the World Bank learned in its lending operations?; and what is the scope for improving how it generates, accesses, and uses learning and knowledge in these operations? Evaluation two includes findings from seven country case studies and interviews with Bank staff about their early experience of working within the Bank’s new global practices structure, which became operational on July 1, 2014. The aim is to assess the pre-FY2015 evidence in light of the new structure and roles, and to ask how long-term trends are likely to be modified as reforms evolve. Surveys and interviews reveal that, when it comes to managing projects, Bank staff rely first and foremost on a process of informal learning...

Approved for public release, distribution unlimited.; Why are certain battalions better than all others? Three Army officers conducted a search for excellent combat arms battalions. As a result of their study, they developed a list of eight attributes common to excellent combat arms battalions. The officers visited three corps, five divisions, and seven battalions located at four different Army posts. The study was divided into two phases. Phase I captures the thoughts of corps and division commanders and their staffs when asked to define excellence in the combat arms. In Phase II seven of the best battalions in the U.S. Army were visited, and the observations were compiled into the Eight Pillars of Excellence. These eight characteristics are indicative of the current leadership and management practices of the Army's best battalions. This thesis tells the story of those excellent battalions.

When seeking to engage a community and disseminate critical knowledge and skills, experience points to one of the most innovative, engaging, and effective learning tools available. Interactive Theater has been successfully applied to raise awareness, challenge attitudes, and influence behaviors around a wide variety of issues in diverse settings. Examples include public health and conflict resolution issues in international communities, faculty development issues on university campuses, social justice issues in colleges and high schools, and physician-patient communication in hospitals and medical schools. The question at hand this past spring was: could Interactive Theater be adapted and applied to engage and train stakeholders who work to foster public-private dialogue and private sector development in developing nations? The answer was a resounding 'Yes.' This smart lesson describes how Interactive Theater was successfully used as a learning tool by the Investment Climate Department during two sessions of the 6th annual international workshop on Public-Private Dialogue (PPD) in Vienna...

Financial consumer protection regulation reflects the regulator's and policy makers' concerns with the relationship between financial institutions and their clients. Most emerging markets and developing economies (EMDEs) researched for this guide have regulated at least one financial consumer protection topic. Each detail in the regulatory requirements impacts how the supervisor enforces them in practice and which tools and techniques will work best. For example, a rule simply requiring disclosure of an item will be checked by the field supervisor differently than a rule requiring the item to be disclosed at a specific moment and in a specified format. Ignoring the time dimension of this rule can jeopardize its core goal. This guide is an attempt to help bank supervisors enforce such regulations. It is divided into following sections: section one gives introduction. Section two details guidance points in eight areas of interest for supervisory staff and agencies, while section three suggests a prioritization framework for supervisors - particularly those in low-income countries with resource and capacity constraints - that adopt a gradual approach when implementing the guidance.

This working paper explores strategies to identify and manage potential money laundering (ML) and terrorist financing (TF) risks in mobile financial services (m-FS). Using fieldwork in seven economies as a basis, the paper provides guidance on the best means of assessing perceived versus actual ML and TF risks, and then identifies specific measures to mitigate the actual risks. The paper concludes with recommendations that aim to promote a regulatory balance to foster an enabling environment for business while minimizing ML and TF risks that hinder its sustainability. The paper identifies four risk factors in m-FS and appropriate mitigation responses. The risk factors are anonymity, elusiveness, rapidity, and poor oversight. Anonymity is the risk of not knowing a customer's actual identity, and it can be diminished through enhanced know-your-customer procedures and identification tools. Elusiveness is the ability to disguise mobile transaction totals, origins, and destinations. It can be diminished through transaction limits and enhanced customer profiling...

This report is a synthesis of information gleaned from four case studies of World Bank-financed land programs in Azerbaijan, Bolivia, Ghana, and the Lao People's Democratic Republic. The case studies were designed to both broaden and deepen our understanding of how land policies affect women and men, with an aim to applying this knowledge in very practical ways to World Ban-supported land projects. The case studies are essentially program evaluations focusing on how each project approached gender issues, what the gender-differentiated issues are in terms of project participation and benefits, and what lessons can be learned from these diverse experiences.

The private sector, through investment and job creation, plays a crucial role in a country's fight against poverty. Where an effective private sector is lacking, business registration reform has been shown to be one of the essential first steps toward fostering private-sector growth. The easier, faster, and cheaper the business registration process becomes, the higher the number of businesses in an economy. A number of recent studies have found that simpler registration processes translate into advantages for workers and employers, including greater employment opportunities, more productive jobs, and higher total factor productivity. In addition, society as a whole benefits from registration reform. Business registration reform also has the potential to reduce both informality and gender disparity in entrepreneurship. This toolkit provides a systematic analysis of various reform options and is meant to serve as a guide for policy makers and practitioners implementing business registration reform. The toolkit thus displays the fundamentals of international good practice that can be adapted to specific country contexts in a coherent...

Knowledge organizations embrace a broad range of conceptual frameworks and methods to guide and assess how the capacities of individuals, organizations, policy frameworks, and societies are being enhanced to advance development objectives. The World Bank Institute (WBI) is a global connector of knowledge, learning, and innovation for poverty reduction. To best leverage knowledge for development effectiveness, WBI has worked to foster a results culture among its staff and establish a results infrastructure. WBI's Capacity and Results practice (WBICR) had conducted an exploratory study to examine the range of practices and systems in place at knowledge organizations to plan for and manage results. This report spotlights interesting approaches and methods used by these organizations to further the dialogue on how to plan for and strengthen the outcomes of knowledge activities going forward.

La gestió de residus ha estat identificada per la Comissió Europea, l'Agència de Protecció Ambiental dels Estats Units i l'Organització per a la Cooperació Econòmica i el Desenvolupament, entre altres institucions, com un tema clau per a l'assoliment d'una societat eficient en l'ús de recursos i per aconseguir una economia sostenible. Les pràctiques de gestió de residus han de ser millorades per tal de reforçar el reciclatge de materials, tancant cicles de materials essencials i també recuperant energia a partir dels residus, alhora que es garanteix que no s'alliberen substàncies tòxiques al medi ambient. En essència, això significa passar d'un model lineal d'economia basat en extreure, usar i llençar a un model més circular. L'Anàlisi de Cicle de Vida (ACV) ha anat guanyant acceptació en els últims anys a Europa com la millor eina per ajudar en la presa de decisions sobre polítiques de gestió de residus i planificació. Aquesta proporciona una visió global i ampliada del sistema, té en compte tots els processos que intervenen i les seves interaccions amb l'economia (mitjançant la reintroducció de materials reciclats o de l'energia recuperada del sistema de gestió de residus), així com la quantificació de l'impacte d'un conjunt complet dels efectes ambientals (p. ex. el canvi climàtic...

Motivation for the IRISC workshop came from the observation that identity and digital identification are increasingly important factors in modern scientific research, especially with the now near-ubiquitous use of the Internet as a global medium for dissemination and debate of scientific knowledge and data, and as a platform for scientific collaborations and large-scale e-science activities. The 1 1/2 day IRISC2011 workshop sought to explore a series of interrelated topics under two main themes: i) unambiguously identifying authors/creators & attributing their scholarly works, and ii) individual identification and access management in the context of identity federations. Specific aims of the workshop included: • Raising overall awareness of key technical and non-technical challenges, opportunities and developments. • Facilitating a dialogue, cross-pollination of ideas, collaboration and coordination between diverse – and largely unconnected – communities. • Identifying & discussing existing/emerging technologies, best practices and requirements for researcher identification. This report provides background information on key identification-related concepts & projects...
