Questions related to Strategy
Assume a mobile air pollution monitoring strategy using a network of sensors that move around the city, specifically a network of sensors that quantify PM2.5 at a height of 1.5 meters that lasts about 20 minutes. Clearly, using this strategy we would lose temporal resolution to gain spatial resolution.
If we would like to perform spatial interpolation to "fill" the empty spaces, what would you recommend? What do you think about it? What would be your approximations?
The duration (covering period) of the National Security Strategy (NSS) according to the US Code is one year.
In most cases though, the National Security Council (NSC) only publishes 1 or 2 NSSs during each Presidency.
In other states the NSS covers a period of 5 (minimum) to 10 (maximum) years.
What do you think is the preferable covering period a NSS should have?
On March 21, 2022 the EU endorsed the "Strategic Compass" a strategic document that provided a specific timeline for establishing a Rapid Deployment Capacity (RDC) of approximately 5.000 troops by 2025. On June 29, 2022 NATO also adopted its new Strategic Concept that encouraged the EU's autonomy. The same concept was promoted by the National Security Strategy of the US that was issued on October 12, 2022. Do you think that this actions will lead to the establishment of a EU Army? What parameters do you think that should be taken into consideration?
Im a planning a workshop in a transdisciplinary format where the goal is to define future activities and a strategy. Any suggestions?
I am primarily interested in 2-player combinatorial games with perfect information. Useful wiki links are below.
I would like to do my end-of-the-year research paper on this topic, but I am struggling to find papers related to this subject.
Recently, I have looked into the Web in search for some works on Search And Rescue or guarding strategies. I have found some works related to UAV exploration in urban environment or SAR disaster site exploration. But, it was not what I really meant.
I wonder if there is any up-to-date literature (analytical, mathematical, physical, simulations maybe?) devoted to search and rescue or guarding, e.g., on the sea. I recall the stories from the time of WWII when allied vessels, after loosing contact with the submarine, started to move in circles with increasing radius. Also, there were special books prepared by mathematicians describing sequences of random turns to avoid being hit by a torpedo.
Do you know if there were any advances in the topic since then? Where the strategies using by modern SAR service are taken from?

- Business Critical failure indicators CFI
Multinational organizations as well as SME or any type of business organization for that matter share the same principle which is succeed. However success is not usually the end result due to XXX factors either internal or external or else, they all have left the business opportunity to other competitors or any other reason of such.
Below is a small list i picked from the net about these companies that really got my attention because they all shared greatness in their days and completely got cast away afterwards:
Therefore, i would kindly solicit the help of anyone who thinks he has a close as possible answer (CFI's) that he/she could foresee before the their business ends up in a failure, what could be the possible way, approach or strategy that might help, and how to separate the right CFI from the wrong one.
Thank you in advance for your answers.

I'm working on methodology of transforming existing organization for manufacturing companies. Could you please guide me on how to approach the following questions:
1. How to split task between operational routines (repetitive tasks, business as usual) and dynamic routines (transformations, NPD, innovation etc.) for different functions (sales, manufacturing, HR, etc.)?
2. How to calculate optimal number of people involved into each type of activities in different functions (e.g. dynamic routines in sales)?
3. How to approach motivation for different combinations of task types and functions? What KPI or other ways of performance control should be used for each of these combinations?
Thank in advance!
Mixed-ability can refer to classes in which there are clear differences in language level, learning style, learning speed, aptitude, students’ background knowledge, and motivation. In this context, every student who is learning a language can be different in language level among other students. Thus, students may have different capabilities to grasp the lesson during the teaching process in the class. According to Ireson & Hallam (2001), “teachers need to recognize that a class is a mixed ability because children have different strengths and weaknesses and develop at different rates.”
In Indonesia, English is a foreign language which is taught and learned only in classrooms or additional English courses outside school. In this case, students may have some problems such as less proficient English ability because people in Indonesia rarely use English as a tool of communication. Also, teachers in dealing mixed- ability classes may have an ineffective learning classroom from both students and teachers.
Dealing with this issue, Mixed-ability students have their own learning style and preferences in learning a language. In this context, I would like to have your opinion of the following question:
What strategies would be effective to handle mixed-ability students in learning English as a foreign language?
I am working on a research that focuses on the management of technology education curriculum in universities of technology and would like to come up with sound recommendations on strategies that can result in effective management of a technology education curriculum.

Among the well-known translation teaching strategies, if you were to choose a few, how many of them would you call the commonly applied? Kindly note them.
For any organisation, strategy and forecasting is very important to plan for the future keeping various parameters, terms, and conditions in mind.
Many times we meet the predicted target and misses as well. Sometime we achieve it partially.
How can we define as standard using some mechanism or formula to evaluate that meeting the predicted strategy is successful or not?
I would be grateful if You can talk about the theory that you know or suggest the best theories that talk about the Strategic entrepreneurship. You can also show the dimensions that you think are suitable for the Strategic entrepreneurship such as ( Sustainable competitive advantage, risk taking, innovation, or any other dimensions )

Background - we played Jenga last night: you know, 54 pieces of wood stacked up on 18 levels one on another. You take the piece out and put it on top and so on. Building continues until the tower falls and the person causing it to fall loses.
Question: what is really a success? Starting with 18 levels you go up but is it better to win on level 24 or lose on level 31? It takes quite some effort and mastery to exceed level 30...
Well? What would you choose and why?
I want to be sure that my investigation of the extant literature is thorough in identifying all terms used to describe the manner in which deliberate/intended and emergent strategy (Mintzberg, 1978) unfold to become realized or unrealized/ephemeral strategy (Mirabeau & Maguire, 2014). For instance, another name I've found is adaptive strategy (Andersen & Nielsen, 2009). Does anyone else have additional terms I may need to research?
i want to know if there is a method or strategy that i can use to create a science lesson in school on different groups of students and that will allow me to create each time different emotions while using the same scientific content.
"Mistake 2: Not building flexible career capital that
will be useful in the future" (80000hours.org Career guide). My question: What are the reasons behind this mistake?
I'm trying to understand what the reasons that lead people to this mistake are. Maybe after we understand the reasons, we would realize that they're not mistakes after all. Or if we still believe they're mistakes, we'll be much able to solve them.
Here are some general reasons:
1. Trade-offs: Advice often neglects to address the trade-off that comes with this advice: For example, "be flexible" ignores the disadvantages of being flexible and the advantages of being "inflexible" (keeping your eye on the goal, avoiding distractions, persistence etc…) and vice versa with persistence advice like "never give up".
2. Unclear evidence or debatable positions
Often contrary or seemingly contrary positions both have evidence.
Do we underestimate or over-estimate the differences between us and others? The "False Consensus Effect" suggests that we under-estimate while the "Fundamental Attribution Error" can imply that we over-estimate the role of personal differences.
So even though the position behind the advice has evidence, it can also be true that the position contrary to the advice has evidence too.
3. Lack of knowledge or effort.
4. More pressing issues
The question then becomes: is : Does the advice that comes with "Not building flexible career capital that will be useful in the future" suffer from general reasons 1+2?
Here are the sub-mistakes of the main mistake:
Some of the reasons that cause people to fall into this mistake (based or influenced by the 80k section though not exactly how they say in all points):
1* Short-term thinking.
2* Not giving career choices enough thought (e.g. English PhD sounds nice so I’m just going to go with it).
3* Underestimating soft-skills: Not Investing in transferable skills that can be used in any job like
A- Deep Work by Calvin Newport. The example given in 80k career guide is writing your daily priorities. I would prefer something like "how to avoid distraction).
B-Learning how to learn
4* Lack of awareness about automation threat.
5* Inaccurate predictions about one’s future interest/opportunities in the chosen career. (e.g) "The End of History Illusion":
So for example, for 5*, it could be the case that General reason 2 "unclear evidence" is implicated it could be (and I don't know it is) that in contrast to the "End of history Illusion", there is a group of personality theorists who claim that we under-estimate how stable our personality is. Or for 3*, general reason number 1 "trade-offs" is implicated. For example (and again I don’t know), it could be the case that the more you focus on developing general skills like "learning how to learn", you become less competitive in non-transferable technical skills because you have less time to focus on that now.
More and more research centers operating in different countries and investigating climate change state that the progressing greenhouse effect on Earth is already a fact. As a result, the risk of increasingly frequent and increasingly dramatic climate disasters is increasing. Man has less and less time to counteract these negative processes.
It is necessary to change the development strategy based on intensifying the exploitation of the Earth's resources on the sustainable development strategy. It is necessary to develop new energy technologies based on renewable energy sources to slow down the progressing greenhouse effect of the Earth in order to reduce the risk of dramatic natural cataclysms. It is necessary to develop ecological innovations, while it may not be too late. It is necessary to save the Earth through destruction for future generations.
In view of the above, I am asking you to answer the following question: Is the greenhouse effect on Earth already objectively recognized by the climate research centers as an irreversible process?
I invite you to the discussion
I came across papers by Sigglekow, Knudsen, Gavetti, etc and they use agent based simulation to generate NK based complex models. From the few paper that I read, none of them mention the software that they use. So, I am looking for recommendations - as a beginner, what would be the best software to learn to be able to simulate such complex models in strategy?

The discusion of structure following strategy or the opposite or both of them reacting to each other is open for years in the field of strategic management (Chandler, Mintzberg, others).
What I wonder is whether the answer (as inconclusive as it is) is the same for public sector or different views / findings are valid for that sub-field of strategic management. Is it asked in that contexts at all?
I did find some publications arguing that implementing strategy of public entity means also adjusting structure if necessary, but that's too little for a conclusive argument.

We talk about alignment between strategy and structure, and also between firm strategy and functional strategy. Nadler and Tushman (1978) give an information processing perspective to the need for strategy - structure alignment. Are there other such perspectives? I am especially looking for theories that explain why alignment between firm strategy and functional strategy is necessary. Thanks.

Hi! I'm trying to find out what are strategical elements for mutual support between people.
I reviewed related literatures about mutual support and social support, and extracted about 8 elements which are influential and important factors in building supportive relationship.
I'd like to apply these elements in the field where mutual support are needed.
But before applying, I'd like to verify these elements and revise(develop) if needed.

- who are the decision-makers (politicians, others?) and stakeholders of aviation policy and innovation policy and what they are influence on aviation?
- how decision-makers (politicians) think about aviation policy, the process of its formulation? What demands report? Do they see the need to take into account the elements of innovation policy?
- what kind of barriers prevent the develppment of national strategy for aviation?
- what else is also important, but i didn't noticed, mentioned?

used less cognitive strategies than those children who are in the period
between 1 and 2 years from diagnosis.
We have also found that there are different trajectories between cancer diseases and rheumatic diseases.

Which is Top level managers are said to performing roles?
Operational, functional, tactical and strategic
my point of view Strategic is top level managers are said to performing role but Traditionally, the role of top level managers has been to set overall direction by formulating strategy and controlling resources. But now, top managers are more commonly called on to be not only strategic architects but also true organizational leaders.
what to all say?????
To be more specific, what kind of experiments would you perform to get structural constraints data for small, medium and large proteins? I am struggling to find a paper that solely talks about this without going to the details of each technique. I just want to know what the experiments does and what kind of information do you get for the experiment being done on different size of proteins. Any papers that you could suggest would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance
As commenters pointed out, I realised my questions are too broad. So I am talking about soluble proteins using solution state NMR technique.
