Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The MABE Methodological Framework aims to understand Value-Based Learning Organizations. The e-leaders (decision takers of these organizations) can only communicate using a hazy hierarchy of metaphors as the new ideas cannot be expressed using the old terminology. They and their organizations exist in a business world, in which the functioning is dominated by software; the employees are expected to be skilled searchers. We assume that the decision takers can change their attitude towards the set of expectations and their relations when facing a new solution; thus, they can achieve to get an objectionless solution. This requires a new mode of cognition, which we call the opportunistic browsing. Furthermore, they have to ensure that the decision they have taken is ethically correct, and as there is no single truth they need to adopt pluralistic ethics. The established framework is used to analyze the decisions of the e-leader, who keeps the original decisions to herself/himself and delegates the routine ones, thus achieving increased efficiency and effectiveness resulting in cost reduction and time savings.
