    Tanke, C. A. J.
    Steeds meer aandacht is er voor de relatie tussen de persoonlijkheid en de competenties van leiders voor het uitvoeren van verschillende typen projecten. Er bestaat echter nog weinig wetenschappelijk onderzoek hierover dat zich specifiek richt op interim-managers. In deze studie wordt onderzocht wat volgens top interim-managers zelf hun persoonlijkheidskenmerken en motieven zijn die hen geschikt maken voor hun rol. Meer inzicht hierin kan een belangrijke bijdrage leveren aan verbetering van....................

Another thanks to ....................
    (2007-01-01) ‘Is “accrual based accounting” more valuable than “cash based accounting” for the public sector?’
    Brandon, M.
    This thesis investigates whether the accrual based accounting model should be implemented in the public sector. In order to answer this question I analyse the differences between the cash based model and the accrual based model, and the private sector and the public sector. Besides that I will investigate how the accrual based model is implemented in several countries and what problems arose. The findings suggest that there are differences and problems, but none of these difficulties are bi....................
    (2007-01-01) ‘Is the Big Four big enough?’ : a study on the supply side of the accounting profession.
    Hesp, F.
    The audit market became highly concentrated after several mergers and the exit of Arthur Anderson in 2002. At the same time oversight bodies created independence rules for the auditors. These independent rules create a situation where big multinationals uses several audit firms. With only four possible firms, because of reputation and expertise, to choose from there might be a lack of competition. The GAO report describes the audit market as a tight oligopoly. Micro-economic theories predict tha....................
    (2013-10-31) ‘Islamophobia’
    Sutar, Chirag
    Social scientists are struggling to define and measure Islamophobia. Answers to questions like - what is Islamophobia? And how much of it exists remain elusive. In the absence of any agreeable definition, exploring this phenomenon from a new viewpoint is essential. This study takes a critical view of the main ‘source’ – The Runnymede Trust Report (1997) – which is known to have popularized the word. To begin with, a propaganda analysis is conducted on the report to understand what ar....................

    (2010-01-01) ‘Kijk ik toch ook naar al 35.000 verkocht’. De invloed van stickers op het keuzegedrag van de boekconsument
    Runia, Erlijne
    Veel uitgeverijen maken tegenwoordig gebruik van de mogelijkheid een sticker op een omslag te plaatsen, of een buikband eromheen te vouwen. Binnen het vaak krappe budget is dit geen goedkope optie. Toch wordt er massaal voor gekozen terwijl niemand met zekerheid kan zeggen of een sticker het gewenste effect heeft: een hogere koopurgentie voor de consument. Wanneer een boek het goed doet kan dat aan elk van de talloze elementen op het omslag worden toegeschreven. In dit onderzoek wordt de boekst....................

    Vugt, M. van
    Om te onderzoeken of de grootte van groepen in de kinderdagopvang invloed heeft op de kwaliteit van de interacties tussen pedagogisch medewerkers en kind en op het welbevinden van het kind, zijn een grootschalige reguliere groep en een kleinschalige experimentele groep met elkaar vergeleken. In de reguliere groep werden 12 tot 16 kinderen opgevangen en in de experimentele groep 4-6 kinderen, met gelijke leidster-kindratio’s. De interactie werd gemeten door middel van de Caregiver Interaction S....................

    Venderbos, L.
    Een steeds groter deel van de Nederlandse bevolking heeft te kampen met overgewicht/obesitas. Sinds de laatste jaren wordt er gesproken van een obesitas epidemie, vanwege de snelle verspreiding van de aandoening. Gevolgen van overgewicht en obesitas voor de gezondheidszorg en de economie zijn reeds bekend of er wordt onderzoek naar gedaan, maar of overgewicht/obesitas invloed heeft op de orgaandonatieproblematiek is niet eerder nader bekeken. Toch is het geen onbelangrijk probleem. De afgelope....................

    Bekendam, M.T.
    The present study attempted to chart the relationship between three variables, namely depression symptoms, cognitive functioning and anxiety symptoms and the capability to retrieve specific positive autobiographical memories. The attempt to find out about cognition and its connection with the ability to retrieve specific positive memories is the innovative aspect of this study. The main question was therefore to what extent cognitive functioning is related to the ability to retrieve specific pos....................

Employees’ development is strongly dependent on the learning climate experienced within the organisation. This study looks at the relationship between the learning climate and teachers’ learning behaviour in higher vocational education. Both aspects have been investigated by a questionnaire (N = 45).
