Crisis Management in Serbia - In the Search for the Optimal Model

Crisis Management in Serbia - In the Search for the Optimal Model

Crises are inevitable as tax or death even in today's Hi-Tech world. The increase in human knowledge and technological power was accompanied by the emergence of new risks and threats. We live in a "risk society" and states are necessarily prepared to deal with different kinds of crises and disasters. Fit-for-all crisis management models do not exist, but it is possible to learn from best practices. After abandoning the socialist project in 1990s, Serbia dismantled old and did not built a new system for dealing with crises and disasters until the end of 2009. It withstood the test of time but in the last period showed a number of lacks and gaps that need to be overcome in the next step.

Optimal blood inventory management using combined AHP-GP approach

Optimal blood inventory management using combined AHP-GP approach

This book provides brief knowledge in balancing the uneven demand in the blood inventory by the optimal inventory management to reduce the shortages, wastage's, issue delays and outages by using the combined analytical hierarchy process and goal programming (AHP-GP) approach. The comparison of AHP- PROMETHEE II in the blood inventory has paved the way to minimize the demand for the blood requirement in the hospitals in a particular region by prioritizing shortages, outages, issue delay, and wastage's in the collection centers. The above said methodology is to minimize the overall deviations for blood demand region or location by prioritizing the collection centers as per their shortages, outages, issue delay, and wastage's in the collection centers. In future the optimal blood inventory can be developed by using the dynamic programming model, Markov chain and regression model etc.

Behavioural Markers for Assessment of Competence in Crisis Management

Behavioural Markers for Assessment of Competence in Crisis Management

A lack of competence in crisis management has been shown to be a causal factor in a number of recent maritime accidents. In safety critical industries other than commercial shipping, such as civil aviation, nuclear and offshore, research is being undertaken to identify behavioural markers that can be used to assess competence in crisis management. Although there is now general acceptance of the core concepts for the non-technical or resource management skills required for competence in crisis management, there is also an acceptance that the behaviours associated with these skills are context specific. This book reviews current practice in using behavioural markers for assessing competence in crisis management. The differences between the assessment frameworks in which behavioural markers are currently being used for this assessment are discussed. This book presents a set of behavioural markers that can be used to assess competence in crisis management within the context of a merchant vessel’s engine room control room. The book concludes that these behavioural markers can be used as a valid objective assessment framework for the assessment of competence in crisis management.

Reforestation in Serbia

Reforestation in Serbia

This monograph is the result of the efforts to improve the existing and gain new knowledge about the forest vegetation and sites in Serbia. Serbia is a country with a low forest cover, which requires new reforestation programmes. Science should contribute to the success of these programmes by redefining and refining the existing reforestation practices. In other words, the problem should be approached in its essence, i.e. apart from the existing forest vegetation, potential vegetation and its sites as well as the selection of taxa for reforestation should be taken into account. This book presents the results of our research investigations of the areas suitable for reforestation in Serbia and the selection of species suited for the reforestation of these terrains. Since in Serbia we deal with ecologically heterogeneous terrains, the selection of species for reforestation is made for each separate site.

Corporate Recovery Strategies

Corporate Recovery Strategies

The importance of the study of recovery comes from the fact that the crisis is often the case in business. While there are studies on the recovery in developed economies, little has been written about recovery strategies in Serbia. This monograph provides a framework for managing crisis, especially in transition economies. Business performance declines due to a variety of internal and external reasons. The crisis is a key situation which if not properly addressed can have consequences that are manifested at the individual and company level. The path to recovery lies in internal and external diagnostics. The author analyses the key factors in strategy choice for a company recovery. Successful recovery is not possible without adequate implementation strategy guided by the leader and independent consultant. The final business failure has been occurred when the company liquidated or sold. This monograph is intended for professionals in Strategic Management and Crisis Management fields.

Crisis Management - Technology Acceptance in Crisis Communication

Crisis Management - Technology Acceptance in Crisis Communication

During the last couple of years one could observe the increase of news about natural disasters in the global media. A justified question would be whether the amount of disasters will further increase? However, a more intriguing question in this context is how to deal with the arising consequences. Therefore this paper’s scope is going to focus on crisis communication as part of crisis management. To be more precise, this paper tries to test people’s acceptance of social media for crisis communication. In order to examine this research question, the scientifically approved Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) will be used to derive an appropriate research model. In accordance with the research model hypotheses will be phrased, which will be tried to validate or falsify by using a survey. The evaluation will be done by simple frequency analysis and correlation analysis. The results indicated that people generally accept social media as tool for crisis communication, but only as additional information source to the traditional media. This depends largely on the credibility of information that is communicated through social media. Furthermore, the correlation analysis and thus the hypotheses testing showed that the applicability of the research model that was derived from the TAM is questionable. Therefore, some adaptations are suggested.
