This master thesis is about the design process of the modern creatives who work at Fabrique, a design agency in the Netherlands. To many the process of designing as successfully As Fabrique, can seem otherworldly. As Arthur C. Clarke once so aptly wrote: “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” So how can Fabrique repeat their ‘magic’ time and again? The key lies in the fact that they are brand-based thinkers. Brand Sync helps these talented designers by improving their ability to perceive and understand the world from the point-of-view of the brand. By using metaphorical associations, the tool helps bring a new and meaningful perspective to what the brand’s role in the life of its customers could be and how to manifest it in everything it does.
After an introduction of the theoretical framework and concepts of transition studies, this article gives an overview of how structural change in social systems has been studied from various disciplinary perspectives. This overview first leads to the conclusion that computational and mathematical approaches and their practical form, modeling, up till now, have been almost absent in the research and theorizing of structural change or transitions in social systems. Second, this review of the social science literature suggests numerous theoretical constructs relevant for transition modeling. Relevant concepts include the conceptualization of the micro-to-macro link, the importance of explaining both stability and change, quantitative and qualitative definitions of structural change, the use of dichotomies, synchronic and diachronic reason...
In dit artikel gaan we na in hoeverre mantelzorgers met en zonder een vergoeding uit een persoonsbonden budget (pgb) van elkaar verschillen in kenmerken van de zorgsituatie, kenmerken van de mantelzorger zelf en de mate van belasting en ondersteuning. De gegevens zijn afkomstig uit het onderzoek Informele Hulp 2007 van het Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek en het Sociaal en Cultureel Planbureau. De analyses hebben betrekking op 112 betaalde en 2336 onbetaalde mantelzorgers van 18 jaar en ouder. Mantelzorgers met een intensieve hulptaak krijgen relatief vaak een vergoeding via het pgb, net als verzorgers van personen met een verstandelijke beperking of personen die iemand verzorgen die veel emotionele steun nodig heeft; mantelzorgers van dementerenden zijn juist ondervertegenwoordigd in de analyses. Ook maken mantelzorgers die een verg...
