  • Understanding Project Leadership: An Indian Context
    • Authors: Nidhi Bansal, Shipra Singh, D. K. Srivastava
      Pages: 121 - 131
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Volume 7, Issue 2, Page 121-131, July 2019.
      AbstractThe role of project leaders is critical in the success of any project. Understanding the project leadership dimensions in the unique Indian context would be beneficial for both scholars and practitioners. The current study attempts to explore the project leadership dimensions from the Generation Y’s (Gen Y) project team members’ perspective. The study adopted a qualitative methodology by conducting semi-structured interviews. These interviews were taken during January 2017–March 2017. A total of 25 project’s team members were interviewed for the study. Mainly, five themes have emerged after analyzing interview transcripts, namely meaning of leadership, leadership qualities, and the role of culture in leadership, the difference between leaders and managers, and examples of good and bad leaders. The findings of the study will give direction to the project leaders, this, in turn, may lead to the success of the project. Future research may empirically examine the factors identified from the study on Gen Y sample population in the Indian context.

  • A Narrative Enquiry into Gender Role Differentiation by Males of the
           Family in Career Choice Decisions of Female Child
    • Authors: Himanshi Tiwari
      Pages: 132 - 146
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Volume 7, Issue 2, Page 132-146, July 2019.
      AbstractChoosing a career is a crucial and significant milestone in one’s life. It becomes even more critical when a woman makes her career choice decisions. Women have a strong case to be free to choose the career of their choice, and contribute in the economic and social well-being of not only their own but of the society on broader grounds, to the fullest of their capabilities. This article makes an attempt to highlight gender role differentiation in the career choice decisions of women.The article follows an autobiographical approach to career counseling and aims to highlight the life story of 25 girls who are pursuing their management graduation in the national capital region of India. “Narrative enquiry method” is used to understand how respondents/participants/interviewees build meaning from within their system of belief, attitude, values, and concepts that outline judgment of individuality and self-identity. Gender role differentiation is found as an influence and barrier in the phenomena of selection of a field of study and even specialization. The findings of this article can be used in crafting programs for providing career counseling and guidance to female management graduates.

  • Encounters with Gendered Realities in Career Decision-making While
           Scouting Women Participation in the Indian Workforce
    • Authors: Himanshi Tiwari
      Pages: 147 - 162
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Volume 7, Issue 2, Page 147-162, July 2019.
      AbstractParticipation of women in the workforce is crucial for any economy to optimally utilize the potential of its full human capital. However, according to the Global Gender Gap Report (2016) by World Economic Forum, no country by now has achieved gender equality. Due to demographic change as well as a stronger focus on service and knowledge-intensive industries, India will face a significant shortage of (qualified) skills in the next decades. To secure qualified labor, it will be of vital importance for large companies to diversify the pool of (potential) employees by gaining better access to the female labor force. When a pool of young women, who are professionally qualified to participate in the workforce and contribute to the country, cannot utilize their true talent, it becomes quite important to know and understand the reasons for that. Career choice and career decisions of women are influenced by a number of social, cultural, familial, and personal factors. The article seeks to identify the reasons of decreased female participation in the Indian workforce from the lenses of career theories and practicalities of career decision-making. It is aimed at a focused target group, that is, young women (between the age of 25 and 45) who have full-time enrollment in university education, are professionally qualified to join the workforce, and are living in an urban setting, yet not contributing in the workforce.

  • Fueling Gender Stereotypes: A Content Analysis of Automobile
    • Authors: Namrata Sandhu
      Pages: 163 - 178
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Volume 7, Issue 2, Page 163-178, July 2019.
      AbstractCultivation analysis is an established methodology to comprehend the impact of gender stereotypy in television commercials on the viewers and society. Taking India as a case in point, the current study utilizes this framework to examine the use of gender in television commercials for automobiles (n = 84). Taped television commercials were examined across four content analytic measures: (a) ad orientation, (b) gender of voice-over, (c) gender of a dominant product user, and (d) gender of the main character. The procedures for coding and assessment of the reliability of coding were modeled on existing methodologies. The proportionality criterion was used to analyze the data. Results indicate a strong gender preference for the male gender in television commercials for automobiles. A comparison between the automobile and non-automobile advertisements establishes a significantly higher gender preference in automobile advertisements than non-automobile advertisements. The study demonstrates the complementarity between a primary data-based analysis and existing literature on the subject. Implications are discussed.

  • Contextualizing Hypertension and Its Treatment Seeking Among Slum Dwellers
           in Mumbai, India
    • Authors: Manas Ranjan Pradhan, S. B. Bolleddu
      Pages: 179 - 189
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Volume 7, Issue 2, Page 179-189, July 2019.
      AbstractSizable Indians suffer from hypertension, and this number is multiplying. There is, however, a shortage of information about lay perception of hypertension and its management—especially among the socio-economically disadvantaged urban population. This study using grounded theory approach explores the explanatory models held by the socio-economically disadvantaged urban communities on hypertension and its management. The results are based on six key informant interviews, three focus group discussions and 21 in-depth interviews from a slum in Mumbai, India. Consent was sought from each participant. ATLAS.ti software was used for analysis. The relationship among emerging themes, categories, and codes were studied using memos and network analysis through an iterative process. The study documents inadequate and varied understanding of hypertension (generally referred to as BP) and its risk factors. The commonly reported perceived risk factors for hypertension were improper food habits, alcohol use, family issues, financial problems, physical inactivity, and unplanned urbanization. Perceived understanding of the risk factors and consequences led to varied pathways of management of hypertension. Hypertension awareness programs and mass screening are pertinent to reduce disease burden and better health outcome of the urban socio-economically disadvantaged populations.

  • Board Meeting Attendance and Corporate Tax Avoidance: Evidence from the UK
    • Authors: Victor Barros, Joaquim Miranda Sarmento
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      AbstractIs corporate tax avoidance associated with board meetings and attendance' Despite the large amount of research in management and finance on the impact of boards in several firm decisions, there is very little research that associates boards with tax avoidance. In this article, we look at firms listed on the London Stock Exchange during the period 2002–2015 and analyze whether a higher frequency of board meetings in the UK is associated with lower corporate tax liability. Our findings show that board meetings and attendance rate exert opposite effects, although the frequency of meetings is associated with lowering the tax liability. However, the association does not hold in a linear way. Tax-avoiding firms pay about 3 percent less effective tax rate, which is associated with average levels of meetings frequency, whereas those in the upper tail of the effective tax rate distribution benefit from a combined decrease of about 5–6 percent in the effective tax rate. The results conclusively support the view that a more resilient and focused control of board members mitigates opportunistic behavior and rent-seeking, thus enabling managers to engage in tax avoidance strategies.

  • The Gold Rush of Digital Marketing: Assessing Prospects of Building Brand
           Awareness Overseas
    • Authors: Anna Makrides, Demetris Vrontis, Michael Christofi
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      AbstractAdvertising through digital channels—known as Digital Marketing—is recognized for its transformative impact on companies and for its immense effect on brand–consumer relationships, as it enables interactions with customers at any time and in any place. Based on these realities, this study analyzes several digital platforms and practices that have proven to be effective and assesses digital media dynamics to examine whether they can increase brand awareness on an international level. By employing a survey methodology approach with 200 respondents as a final sample, this study shows that digital marketing represents a huge potential for small- and medium-sized enterprises, giving internationalization a dominant digital attribute. Additionally, the findings reflect the noteworthy and rapid emergence of different digital marketing techniques serving different market segments. Finally, the study discusses the theoretical and managerial implications of the findings and proposes several avenues for future research.

  • Driving Audit Committee Disclosure: Legislation Versus Best Practice
    • Authors: Philna Coetzee, Lourens J. Erasmus
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      AbstractStakeholders have no alternative than to rely on the credibility and effectiveness of governance and oversight structures within organizations, to protect their interest. This study investigates whether the expectation for expanded disclosure on audit committees has been adopted as part of organizational culture. The evolution of audit committee guidance in the King reports and prominent global reports were analyzed and compared to legislation governing all sectors within South Africa. A document analysis in the form of a structured content analysis was conducted to determine adherence to King guidance by South African organizations. Optimal scaling was applied to determine dimensions of disclosure, with respect to audit committee best practice. Finally, the level of adherence to legislation versus adherence to best practices is gauged within each dimension. Results support organizations to have generally increased disclosure on audit committees’ composition and role. The study adds to the body of knowledge on voluntary disclosure of audit committee best practice, to be considered by policy makers and management, on what may strengthen the credibility and effectiveness of audit committee oversight as perceived by the stakeholder. The result also presents a foundation for further research within this area.

  • Tourist’s Satisfaction in Terms of Accommodation: A Case Study in
           Vlore, Albania
    • Authors: Elenica Pjero (Beqiraj), Orgeta Gjermëni
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      AbstractThis study aims to explore tourist’s satisfaction on the accommodation provided during their stay in Vlore (Albania) touristic structures, and if there are possible associations between different characteristics related to this service and tourists. Lack of studies on analyzing customer satisfaction in the industry of accommodation, especially for Vlore, have prompted us to undertake this study. The study results are important for local government, the accommodation industry, and is a source of information for whom is interested to improve their accommodation services, or to invest in accommodation industry located in Vlore, Albania. “Netnography” is used to collect data for our research purpose from the reviews in TripAdvisor website. Using descriptive and inferential statistics, this study concludes that 64.9 percent of the ratings are “very good” or “excellent,” regardless of the accommodation structure chosen. Accommodation structures should have a clear defined idea of what kind of tourist they want to attract in a certain period of the year, in order to offer the quality tourists expect. Furthermore, understanding of tourist satisfaction evaluation is important in implementing successful marketing campaigns.

  • “I am a Responsible Leader” Responsible Corporate Social
           Responsibility: The Example of Luxembourg
    • Authors: Ursula Schinzel
      Abstract: Business Perspectives and Research, Ahead of Print.
      AbstractThis article examines the links between responsible leadership and corporate social responsibility (CSR) in one country, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, a linguistically and culturally specific country, and how they are perceived to be enacted or not. The purpose of this study is to combine Hofstede’s cross-cultural research with a research on responsible leadership and CSR in Luxembourg, in order to determine if there are any particularities that apply only in the country. In this qualitative study from Spring/Summer 2017, 64 semi-structured interviews were conducted mainly in four culturally different categories. This study is combined with the results of a 2016 study “What is responsible leadership in Luxembourg.” Findings indicate that language is used as a key identifier, affecting CSR outcomes, and point to high uncertainty avoidance levels in Luxembourg as a possible reason for lack of change and innovation. Finally, the article discusses the various implications of the findings.
