Think about the following questions — try to find evidence for and against all the questions that support and criticize these key ideas of functionalism This argument matured later in many authors on regime theory in the 1970s and beyond. These authors have often described the process of extending the powers of agencies with regard to international organizations that are gradually acquiring normative, regulatory, regulatory and ultimately programmatic responsibilities. Thus, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), founded in 1956, has gradually extended its missions of technical assistance reserved for the extraordinary legal powers of inspections developed under the aegis of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. The iaea-run safeguards system in countries around the world is the most advanced example of a working regulatory system. M. The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) was an example of a new institution that provides a particular public service, separate from the territorial base of state authority. In the VAT case, seven national governments relinquished their authority over the river basin and agreed to set up a specific agency to develop and implement an ambitious plan for dam construction, hydropower, power generation and job creation in an area subject to regular flood damage. Mr Mitrany spoke in favour of the creation of a number of similar, potentially global technical and scientific agencies for the implementation of infrastructure and reconstruction programmes, organised on a technical or functional basis and not on a territorial basis. Cross-function teams are made up of people from different parts of an organization. The information must be made understandable to all users. Engineers aren`t the only ones using technical data, and accountants aren`t the only ones using financial data, and not just staff are using HR data. Modern organizations lack the average managers to combine, sort, and prioritize data. Technical, financial, marketing and any other type of information must be available in a form that all members of a multi-function team can understand.
This involves reducing the amount of technical jargon, sorting information according to importance, concealing complex statistical procedures from users, interpreting the results and providing clear explanations for difficulties. . . .
