TL;DR: This chapter will describe the framework and systematic methodology for improving processes used within projects and operations work.
Abstract: The progressive realization of the enterprise full potential by moving from its current maturity stage towards a higher (ultimately “Continuous Improvement”) maturity stage, requires a framework and a systematic methodology for studying the constituent elements or processes and systems associated with the eight overarching determining factors. It also requires a way of differentiating between the different types of variation present in those processes and systems. In addition to the way of thinking described throughout the chapters of the previous section, and which must be put to practice, there are techniques to be learned. In this chapter, we will describe the framework and systematic methodology for improving processes used within projects and operations work.

TL;DR: The term standard deviation was introduced to statistics by Karl Pearson (1894), which is a quantity calculated to indicate the extent of deviation for a group of elements as a whole from their expected central tendency as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: The word sigma is the eighteenth letter of the Greek alphabet (Σ, σ), transliterated as ‘S, s’. These symbols are used to denote a mathematical sum (Σ) and a standard deviation (σ); the term standard deviation was introduced to statistics by Karl Pearson (1894), which is a quantity calculated to indicate the extent of deviation for a group of elements as a whole from their expected central tendency. A low standard deviation indicates that the elements tend to be very close to their expected central tendency, whereas high standard deviation indicates that the elements are spread out over a large range from their expected central tendency.

TL;DR: Deming's theory of management based on the 14 Points for Management is described in Out of the Crisis, originally published in 1982 as mentioned in this paper, where he explains the principles of management transformation and how to apply them.
Abstract: According to W. Edwards Deming, American companies require nothing less than a transformation of management style and of governmental relations with industry. In Out of the Crisis, originally published in 1982, Deming offers a theory of management based on his famous 14 Points for Management. Management's failure to plan for the future, he claims, brings about loss of market, which brings about loss of jobs. Management must be judged not only by the quarterly dividend, but by innovative plans to stay in business, protect investment, ensure future dividends, and provide more jobs through improved product and service. In simple, direct language, he explains the principles of management transformation and how to apply them.

TL;DR: This introductory paper summarizes discussion sessions and 13 selected papers from a workshop held in Ballater, UK, highlighting research on riparian buffers brought together under the EU COST Action 869 knowledge exchange program.
Abstract: Catchment riparian areas are considered key zones to target mitigation measures aimed at interrupting the movement of diffuse substances from agricultural land to surface waters. Hence, unfertilized buffer strips have become a widely studied and implemented "edge of field" mitigation measure assumed to provide an effective physical barrier against nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and sediment transfer. To ease the legislative process, these buffers are often narrow mandatory strips along streams and rivers, across different riparian soil water conditions, between bordering land uses of differing pollution burdens, and without prescribed buffer management. It would be easy to criticize such regulation for not providing the opportunity for riparian ecosystems to maximize their provision for a wider range of ecosystem goods and services. The scientific basis for judging the best course of action in designing and placing buffers to enhance their multifunctionality has slowly increased over the last five years. This collection of papers aims to add to this body of knowledge by giving examples of studies related to riparian buffer management and assessment throughout Europe. This introductory paper summarizes discussion sessions and 13 selected papers from a workshop held in Ballater, UK, highlighting research on riparian buffers brought together under the EU COST Action 869 knowledge exchange program. The themes addressed are (i) evidence of catchment- to national-scale effectiveness, (ii) ecological functioning linking terrestrial and aquatic habitats, (iii) modeling tools for assessment of effectiveness and costs, and (iv) process understanding enabling management and manipulation to enhance pollutant retention in buffers. The combined understanding led us to consider four principle key questions to challenge buffer strip research and policy.
