Abstract

Subject and purpose of work: The aim of the study is to identify methodological problems, which may be encountered during the preparation of the energy balance of a territorial unit, along with indications of ways to solve them. Materials and methods: Problems were identified during the preparation of the energy balance for two selected rural communes and then they were investigated with reference to the literature on this subject. Results: Estimating the energy demand of a local government unit requires proper identification of the groups of energy consumers, divided into facilities owned or co-owned by communes and ones independent from commune authorities. The latter group is divided further, into households, businesses, farms. For each of the users different methods of obtaining data may be needed: a survey and analysis of statistical data, analysis of financial documents, evaluation of the buildings’ age. Generally, however, preparing an energy balance statement requires many simultaneous approaches, and the combination of multi-criterion analysis provides the most reliable picture of the problem. Conclusions: The scope of the data needed to compile an energy balance statement for local government units, depends on the purpose of the developed analysis. Methodological handbooks and training materials on this subject are helpful, but the developed methodologies may need to be modified and adapted to specific conditions.

Abstract

In this paper I try to make a brief presentation of the concept of reengineering expressed in the literature. In the second part of this paper I will try to list the stages of the reengineering methodology and to develop them succinctly.

At the end of the paper I will attach a case study on reengineering and conclusions on this topic.

Abstract

So far, methodological individualism has been the cognitive paradigm that permeates economic thinking in the epistemic community, in economic policy, and holds a place within the wide public at large. On the other hand, the tide of criticism addressed towards traditional economic philosophy is on the rise. The gist of this study is to demonstrate the weakness and antinomic character of the individualistic paradigm and to suggest an alternative worldview - methodological holism.
