A tool to define the governance rules of your (open source) projects | Modeling Languages - 0 views

  • one of the reasons which hamper contributions is the lack of clear undesrtanding on how the project is governed, that is, who can contribute, how contributions are evaluated, who decides when they are integrated in the official release,…

    While I don't expect it to be this simple, this is something we need to sit down and do - my apologies as the governance discussion is in one of the 400 tabs I have open right now, I'll try to get at it this week. Note that the visual model is quite good. Something like this would be very useful. If we get too many decision types (the blue boxes) we might wish to use super-types for the visual model and layer it all the way down.

    The governance equation would tie into the 'participants' section.

    A very good jumping off point - of course the questionnaire doesn't really apply to OSH, nor do the decision types.

Club of Amsterdam blog: The impact of culture on education - 0 views

  • For example in some countries the objective of education is: to develop a critical mind, which in other cultures is viewed as absurd. In these countries students are supposed to try to learn as much as possible from the older generation and only when you are fully initiated you may communicate to have ideas of yourself.

  • The combined scores for each country explain variations in behavior of people and organizations. The scores indicate the relative differences between cultures.

  • He defines culture as “the collective programming of the mind that distinguishes the members of one group or category of people from others”.
  • Analyzing his data, Hofstede found five value clusters (or “dimensions”) being the most fundamental in understanding and explaining the differences in answers to the single questions in his questionnaires
    • The five dimensions of national culture identified by Hofstede are:
      •  Power Distance Index (PDI)
      •  Individualism vs. collectivism (IDV)
      •  Masculinity vs. femininity (MAS)
      •  Uncertainty Avoidance Index (UAI)
      •  Long Term Orientation (LTO)
  • Power distance is the extent to which less powerful members of a society accept that power is distributed unequally. In high power-distance cultures everybody has his/her rightful place in society. Old age is respected, and status is important. In low power-distance cultures people try to look younger and powerful people try to look less powerful
  • In individualistic cultures, like almost all the rich Western countries, people look after themselves and their immediate family only; in collectivist cultures like Asia and Africa people belong to "in-groups" who look after them in exchange for loyalty

Status is important to show success. Feminine cultures like the Scandinavian countries and the Netherlands have a people orientation. Small is beautiful and status is not so important
  • Uncertainty avoidance (or uncertainty control) stands for the extent to which people feel threatened by uncertainty and ambiguity. In cultures with strong uncertainty avoidance, people have a strong emotional need for rules and formality to structure life
  • The last element of culture is the Long Term Orientation which is the extent to which a society exhibits a future-orientated perspective rather than a near term point of view.  Low scoring countries like the USA and West European countries are usually those under the influence of monotheistic religious systems, such as the Christian, Islamic or Jewish systems. People in these countries believe there is an absolute and indivisible truth. In high scoring countries such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, for example those practicing Buddhism, Shintoism or Hinduism,  people believe truth depends on time, context and situation
