Stock and flow

stock and flow special research report Photo by
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate how the interplay between individual and organizational human capital investments may impact on immigrant career success Design/methodology/approach – Analysis is based on the 2003 Canadian Workplace and Employee Survey (WES) in order to determine the impact of training (both self-funded and employer-sponsored) and other human resource practices (such as training expenditure per employee, membership of a team, and job rotation) on employee career outcomes. The most basic estimate is a linear function based on immigrant and non-immigrant sub-samples of the WES. Findings – A ...
variable is measured at one specific time, and represents a quantity existing at that point in time (say, December 31, 2004), which may have accumulated in the past. A flow variable is measured over an interval of time. Therefore a flow would be measured per unit of time (say a year). Flow is roughly analogous to rate or speed in this sense. For example, U.S. nominal gross domestic product refers to a total number of dollars spent during a specific time period, such as a year. Therefore it is a flow variable, and has units of dollars/year. In contrast, the U.S. nominal capital stock is the total value, in dollars, of equipment, ...
Calculated Risk: Housing Stock and Flow
The answer depends on 1) how many net units are added to the housing stock, and 2) how many net households are formed. The table below shows about 650 thousand net housing units added to the stock in 2009. Housing units include single family homes (included as 1 to 4 units), apartments (5+ units), and mobile homes. Demolitions are subtracted from the stock (note: demolitions are the hardest to estimate). In 2009, because of the recession, fewer than normal net households were formed (probably around 650 thousand), so the excess inventory was not reduced. NOTE: Table is based on Completions. Housing units added to stock: 1 ... market research, surveys and trends
Systems Thinking and Software Inventory
“A System is more than the sum of its parts. It may exhibit adaptive, dynamic, goal seeking, self preserving and sometimes evolutionary behavior.” – Donella Meadows,  Thinking in Systems After reading Donella Meadows’ book Thinking in Systems and Peter Senge’s book  The Fifth Discipline I thought it would be interesting to try and represent a development process as a stock and flow diagram with balancing and reinforcing feedback loops. A stock in systems thinking is an accumulation of material that dynamically changes over time. Software inventory can be thought of as a stock. When a team starts to ... market research, surveys and trends


Immigrant Entrepreneurship Puzzle | Small Business Trends
just released by the U.S. Small Business Administration examines the contribution of immigrant entrepreneurs to the U.S. economy. The report is very interesting, but it buries a fascinating puzzle about immigrant entrepreneurship. The report examines data from the Consumer Population Survey and finds that immigrants are 30 percent more likely than the native born to transition from working for someone else into working for oneself (as one’s primary job). But the report also examines data from the Census and finds that the percentage of immigrants who are working for themselves is almost the same as the percentage of the native ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Leverage Points: places to intervene in a system
A key decision for software architects and designers involves where and how to introduce change into a system in order to effect a desired change. Leverage points are those places where micro changes can result in macro results. The business enterprise is a system that can be changed by the strategic introduction of computing technology at appropriate leverage points. IT is also a system that can be altered by making key changes at leverage points. In both cases it is necessary to identify leverage points and determination of the type and value of the change to be introduced. Donella Meadows is the author of Thinking in ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

It is acceptable for the identity of the company in the diagram to be concealed or even for the diagram to be a hypothetical (but thorough) example. If the service firm was a software consulting organization, all the better.
