Comparative Analysis of Attrition Generation Methodologies Utilized in Aggregate Combat Models by Kevin L Murphy Major, United States Army B.S., United States Military Academy, Submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of MASTER OF SCIENCE IN OPERATIONS RESEARCH from the NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL September A definition of agile methods was developed using an analytical comparative framework to investigate five of the earliest published agile methods; Dynamic Systems Development Method, Extreme Programming, Scrum, Adaptive Software Development, and Crystal Methods.
The framework decomposed each method into its component. analysis is comparative: all attempts to find causes involve comparing what happened 1 The argument of this paper builds on Pickvance ( and ); the material in section 2 draws on Pickvance (). In this chapter, Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) is introduced as a research design which can be a fruitful tool for the (comparative) analysis of social movements.
QCA is a case-study methodology that enables researchers to compare mid-sized numbers of cases in view of sufficiency and necessity set : Claudius Wagemann.
Comparative Case Analysis (CCA) is an important tool for criminal investigation and crime theory extraction. It analyzes the commonalities and differences between a collection of crime reports in.

Abstract. In this paper, we present a data mining approach for analyzing retailing bank customer attrition. We discuss the challenging issues such as highly skewed data, time series data unrolling, leaker field detection etc, and the procedure of a data mining project for the attrition analysis for retailing by: 2.

With attrition rates being a bane of every industry, companies are devising innovative business models for effec-tive retention of talent. There are a lot of factors responsible for attrition and employers are getting increasingly conscious of the factors that can keep an employee committed.

I thought I'd give 'the Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA)' a try. I have not yet gotten to later books developed by Ragin, where elaborates on QCA and 'the fuzzy sets'. Thus, this review judges this book /5(12). Comparison is a common research method with outstanding merits and with widespread application.
The aim of this article is to discuss systematically some of the methodological strategies of using this mode of research in social science.
To do so a few typologies regarding the functions and leverages of comparative analysis are presented first. The comparative method is fundamental and critical for political scientists, and especially those interested in comparative politics.
Such questions as how democratic is the United States, how rich is Germany, and how ethnically complex is Nigeria-and what effects these attributes have on important political phenomena-cannot be analyzed except by: 9.
Data for attrition modeling is also characteristically more involved. Since initial benchmarks for future prediction must be established, a “cross-sectional” perspective of your customers at a beginning point is usually in order.

For instance, ‘classification’ models catalog the employees based on their risk to leave the company; whereas ‘non-linear regression’ model gives the ‘probability of attrition’ when the outcomes are : Bhasker Gupta.
Student attrition is an important issue for many Australian universities. According to the Department of Education, Science and Training (DEST) (; a), the attrition rates for tertiary students in Australian higher education (HE) institutions ranged from 15%% over the past decade, with an average attrition rate of around 20%.
Here is a familiar scenario for those running field experiments: You’re conducting a study with a treatment and a comparison arm and measuring your main outcomes with surveys and/or biomarker data collection, meaning that you need to contact the subjects (unlike, say, using administrative data tied to their national identity numbers) – preferably in person.
Attrition rates have been high in several of the key sectors of the Indian Economy leading to discussions about which could be the best retention strategies to counter high labour turnover. Measurements are scarce of HR functions in Indian companies Srimannarayana, M.
Kittel argues that one of the most customary and popular methods in comparative research – macro-quantitative comparative research – is in fact a ‘crazy methodology’ (following a claim made by Cartwright, ).

This has led to his developing and championing the use of set-theoretic methods in the social sciences, most notably, his Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA.
Reporting of attrition. In a review of trials published in four general medical journals in54% (71) of the trials had some loss to follow-up for the main analysis. 4 Among these trials the median percentage loss was 7% (minimum %, maximum 48%; interquartile range %). These data suggest that potentially problematic loss to follow-up occurs in many trials, even those published Cited by:
