Developing high-performance regulatory teams
MetadataShow full item record
The British Columbia Utilities Commission (the Commission) is a quasi-judicial regulatory agency responsible for oversight of British Columbia's energy utilities and the province's compulsory automobile insurance requirements. As a regulator and administrative tribunal in British Columbia, the Commission operates in accordance with legislation that governs the organization's conduct and activities with respect to achieving its mandate. This qualitative inquiry identified practices that can contribute to development of sustainable high performance in the context of the Commission's interdisciplinary teams. The research undertaken for this project employed an appreciative stance and assumed that the Commission's professionals achieve high-quality results and the absence of intervention would not negatively impact the quality of work the Commission produces. The project was focused toward the ideal future state in which highest-performance regulatory teams contribute to larger organizational strategy and goals. The project was of minimal risk and adhered to Royal Roads University's ethical guidelines.

Intrinsic mechanical properties of the perfused armoured catfish heart with special reference to the effects of hypercapnic acidosis on maximum cardiac performance Hanson, Linda M.; Baker, Daniel W.; Kuchel, Louise J.; Farrell, Anthony P.; Val, Adalberto L.; Brauner, Colin J. (2009-05)The armoured catfish, Pterygoplichthys pardalis, is known to be extremely tolerant of environmental hypercarbia (elevated water CO2 tensions), which occurs in their natural environment. In addition, previous studies have ...
Exceptional CO2 tolerance in white sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus) is associated with protection of maximum cardiac performance during hypercapnia in situ Baker, Daniel W.; Hanson, Linda M.; Farrell, Anthony; Brauner, Colin J. (University of Chicago Press, 2011)White sturgeon rank among the most CO2-tolerant fish species examined to date. We investigated whether this exceptional CO2 tolerance extended to the heart, an organ generally viewed as acidosis intolerant. Maximum cardiac ...
