  • Ethical Decision Making: A Role-Play Exercise

    • Abstract: This paper highlights an original role-play exercise designed to teach students about the principles of ethical decision making. The exercise intends to create hypothetical ethical dilemmas that managers may encounter in their jobs, and challenges the students to apply the principles of ethical decision making to reach a solution in each case. This exercise is ideal for use by instructors of introductory courses such as principles of management, introduction to business or graduate level business administration concepts, or any class session with a primary focus on ethical decision making. We present a description of the exercise and suggestions on how to debrief it. The exercise also provides students with an opportunity to ponder their ethical values and complexities associated with the manager’s position in a company.

  • The Relationship between LBOs, IPOs and Market Risk Premium: An Empirical
           Analysis of the European Market

    • Abstract: This paper investigates the relationship between leveraged buyouts (LBOs) and initial public offerings (IPOs) with the market risk premium in the European market. We expand our study to the period spanning from the first quarter of 1999 to the fourth quarter of 2016. Our longitudinal analysis finds evidence of an inverse relationship between market risk premium and the volume of LBOs, as well as a direct relationship between the latter and the stock index STOXX Europe 600. Additionally, our analysis of IPO operations confirms the significance of all factors considered in predicting the IPO trends in Europe, with a persisting accentuated impact generated by the market risk premium and the stock index STOXX Europe 600, also in this case. While previous analyses majorly focused on the US market, this paper is among first attempts to examine the topic of interest in the European context.

  • Goal Ambiguity in Public Organizations: A Systematic Literature Review

    • Abstract: In the literature on the public-private organizations is well known that public organizations have more ambiguous elements than private ones, such as ideology and objectives, that negatively influence the enthusiasm (Brunsson, 1986), motivation and performance of public employees (Pandey & Raney, 2006), as well as organizational performance (Chun & Raney, 2005). The close relationship with performance led many public administration scholars to deepen the concept of goal ambiguity in public management. However, given the lack of a univocal conceptualization of the phenomenon, the present work aims to contextualize goal ambiguity in the public administration, carrying out a systematic literature review. The results bring out goal ambiguity methods of measurement, its antecedents and consequences and the relationship between goal ambiguity and performance. From a theoretical point of view, the study allows systematizing the contributions on goal ambiguity, while from a practical point of view, a thorough knowledge of the concept allows public managers and policy-makers to obtain valuable information for the achievement of good organizational performance.

  • Critical Challenges in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Implementation

    • Abstract: This research paper explores critical challenges in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementation based on insights from an exploratory qualitative single case study in the Canadian Oil and Gas Industry. The study was conducted in a Canadian case organization using twenty interviews from members of four project role groups of senior leaders, project managers, project team members, and business users. The study further collected and reviewed project documents from the ERP implementation for triangulation. The research evoked a comprehensive list of sixty critical challenges and out of which, the top twelve challenges discussed in detail were drawn from the responses of participants from all four project role groups. The study findings indicated that critical challenges were significant during ERP implementation. This research is one of first case studies in the Canadian oil and gas industry that focuses on critical challenges in ERP implementation projects.

  • Impact of Process Oriented Business Culture in Transforming Organizational
           Performance: A Case of Texaco

    • Abstract: The rapid advent of industrialization has confronted majority of the people with complexity and novelty of their respective organization. They are forced to cope up with an increasing number of tasks along with the open dynamic processes and changing parameters. The present study aims to evaluate the perceptions regarding Texaco’s learning culture and the role of learning cultures in achieving organizational transformation. The study also investigates national and non-national respondents employed at Texaco’s facility in Neutral Partition Zone between Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. The study has employed mixed research design using a survey based on 3-point Likert scale. The questionnaire was designed to examine the employee behavior and organizational support, whereas personal interviews were conducted for examining the awareness of employees towards the learning organization models. The results showed significant level of employee participation (p-value 0.049), commitment (0.068), innovation (p-value 0.033) and feedback (0.025). Whereas, the interview results showed that employees had a higher degree of awareness regarding organizational learning models. However, they requested training sessions for learning how to implement these models. These results have clarified that Texaco has evolved into an innovative and culturally diverse organization following Chevron’s takeover. Therefore, the study has concluded that Texaco employs knowledge sharing learning models through their knowledge management (KM) initiatives.

  • Does Love Money Affect Vocational Behavior' Empirical Evidence from
           Italian Entrepreneurs

    • Abstract: The present paper aims to investigate the relevance that love money – i.e. financial resources provided by family, friends, and fools – can have on vocational behavior, standing for personal goals that are occupational in nature. In particular, the relationship between the above-cited financial resources and “core goals” (i.e. the survival of entrepreneurial firms) is tested by leveraging on second-hand data about Italian entrepreneurs retrieved from Global Entrepreneurship Monitor – GEM website and referring to the years 2012-2014 and by applying estimated Logit models. Achieved results show that financial resources provided by fools do not affect the survival of entrepreneurial firms. On the contrary, financial resources provided by family and friends do it. Noticeably, the impact of financial resources provided by family or by friends varies in terms of intensity and according to entrepreneurial profiles, in particular to gender and age. After highlighting the main limitations of this paper, some hints for further research are proposed in the last part of the paper.

  • Power and Discipline: The Role of Accounting in the Monte di Pietà of
           Ravenna between 18th and 19th Centuries

    • Abstract: This paper aims to fill a gap in the scant literature on accounting practices in non-Anglo-Saxon countries in under- researched periods by exploring the Monte di Pietà of Ravenna, an Italian non-profit institution. The research draws upon original 18th and 19th century documents found in the Monte di Pietà of Ravenna and offers an internal perspective of the development of accounting technology before and after an ‘intacco’ episode, thus attempting to shed light on the significance of accounting in that context. The originality of the Ravenna episode, compared to other similar ones experienced by Monti, consists in its extension over time and in its recurrence by three generations of administrators linked by kinship bonds, who systematically damaged the Monte between 1797 and 1837. The new form of control of the Monte’s activities after the “intacco” based on accounting technologies, and realised a new relation between power and knowledge in which accounting was the tool to exercise disciplinary power, thus making people more governable. Accounting technologies relied upon a more articulated financial statement that included the institute’s transactions and events.

  • Earnings Management Incentives and the Pricing of Discretionary Accruals

    • Abstract: The objective of this research is to investigate whether earnings management incentives influence the pricing of discretionary accruals. Specifically, we verify if growth opportunity, leverage, free cash flow, insider trading and financial distress are useful to investors to discriminate between opportunistic and informative earnings management.Using a sample of 486 American firms for the period 2002-2010, we find that discretionary accruals are positively related to stock returns. This relation is more intensive in high growth firms and high levered firms. Indeed, these firms use more informative earnings management to communicate future prospects and good financial situation to external investors. However, discretionary accruals are negatively priced by investors in distressed firms. These firms have a greater incentive to manage earnings opportunistically to hide any financial problem. Likewise, we detect a negative relationship between discretionary accruals and stock returns in firms with excessive free cash flow revealing the opportunistic perspective of earnings management. Finally, we demonstrate that investors award positive (negative) value to discretionary accruals in case of insider buying (selling).

  • Discussion on the Impact of Sino-US Trade War on Taiwanese Manufacturing

    • Abstract: When US President Donald Trump signed the Section 301 Investigation in March 2018, the Sino-US trade war intensified, exerting a great impact on the global economy. The Trump Administration recently has piled up the economic and trade pressure on China, while China seeks to resort to the WTO dispute settlement mechanism and break the siege imposed by the trade war through the "Belt and Road Initiative". US launched a trade war against China due mainly to the huge trade deficit with China, and the trade frictions between the U.S. and China have caused turbulence on the Asian and global industrial chains. Therefore, by analyzing the recent trade conflicts between the U.S. and China and the responses given by both respectively, this paper explores the possible impact on Taiwan's manufacturing and its potential response.

  • Abnormal Loan Growth and Bank Profitability: Some Evidence from the Recent

    • Abstract: During healthy economic/financial times, credit growth often happens without proper provisioning. This is due to a managerial myopia that underestimates the risks underlying an expansive lending policy, leading to lower profitability in following years. However, given the countercyclicality of credit standards, this effect shouldn’t occur during harsh times. In this paper, we analyse the relationship between abnormal credit growth and bank profitability during a crisis period. In particular, we test the hypothesis that during a crisis, abnormal credit growth improves bank profitability, given the need for higher, or at least stable, credit standards. We find support for this assumption using a sample of 101 large European banks observed during the recent crisis period. Results are robust to different robustness checks.

  • The Nature of the Relationship between GDP and Energy Consumption in Saudi

    • Abstract: This paper aims to explain the relationship between Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and energy consumption in Saudi Arabia; this is one of the most important emerging markets in the Middle East region. Moreover, this paper uses the Granger Causality test, to investigate over the period from 1970 to 2014 the nature of the co-integration between the variables of GDP and energy consumption. This is done to find out the direction of the relationship between GDP and energy consumption in Saudi Arabia. In this regard, we have come to the conclusion that, on the one hand, Saudi Arabia’s GDP has no causal effect on the country’s energy consumption. However, on the other hand, Saudi Arabia’s energy consumption has a causal effect on the country’s GDP.

  • The Effect of Gender on Career Progression: A Conceptual Model

    • Abstract: This paper attempts to develop a conceptual model to test the effect of gender on career progression. In the Sri Lankan context, there is a perception that there is difference between female oriented jobs and male oriented jobs. When economic statistics and company related details are considered, it can be surmised that there is an impact of gender on career progression. This research paper proposes definitions for variables related to career progression and career advancement in organizations. Based on these definitions and on an extensive literature survey, the current researchers will develop a conceptual framework to test the effect of gender on career progression.

  • How Nonprofit Organizations Use Social Media for Fundraising: A Systematic
           Literature Review

    • Abstract: Social media (SM) are widely used by nonprofit organizations (NPOs). However, little is known about how they are used for fundraising, especially regarding their benefits/disbenefits, and the optimum strategies for maximizing value from such campaigns. The study presented here aimed to address this gap by collecting, analyzing and synthesizing the results of the corpus of published academic research on this topic. Of 194 potentially relevant search results generated from seven international online databases, only 71 (62 studies) fully met the inclusion criteria. Most of these qualifying studies were published in social science journals in the past three years and derived from high-income countries. Our findings indicate that the benefits NPOs can obtain from using SM for fundraising include increased transparency and accountability, operational, involvement and engagement, and improved organizational image (although in respect of the two latter, outcomes can be mixed). The strategies for NPOs' SM use for fundraising focused either on generic management of social media for NPO’s fundraising or on management of some specific SM fundraising campaigns.
