  • Why Do Consumers Behave Differently in Personal Information Disclosure and
           Self-Disclosure' The Role of Personality Traits and Privacy Concern

    • Authors: Erdem Özkan
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to explain differences between consumers' personal information disclosure to companies (IDC behavior) and self-disclosure in social media (SDM behavior) based on personality traits, privacy concern and types of disclosed personal information. The population consisted of consumers who are 18 and over, have one or more social media accounts, and live in Turkey. The data were collected via the online survey method and analyzed by structural equation modeling. As a result of the analyses, it was found that consumers' IDC behavior and SDM behavior differ from each other depending on the disclosed personal information. It was also found that the personality traits have direct and indirect effects on both consumers' personal information disclosure and their self-disclosure in social media, and the privacy concern was the main reason for indirect effects. Accordingly, each of these disclosure behaviors was affected by different personality traits, and the dominant traits shape them. In conclusion, it has been determined that the personality traits and privacy concern have significant roles in the differences between IDC behavior and SDM behavior.

  • A Grey DEMATEL Integrated Approach to Determine Third Party Logistics
           Service Provider Selection Criteria

    • Authors: Ejder Ayçin
      Abstract: Third-party logistics (3PL) services have seen significant growth in recent years as a result of playing a key role in supply chain management. The demand for 3PL service providers has increased as companies offer better service to their customers, lower costs and gain competitive advantage. This paper includes an application that will help determine the most important criteria in the selection and evaluation of 3PL service providers. The aim of the paper is to be able to determine the selection criteria of the 3PL service providers and the relationships between them, from the point of view of companies already using logistics services outsourcing. For this purpose, grey system theory and DEMATEL approach are integrated in order to describe uncertain and complex decisions with definite numerical values and determine the relations and importance levels between the criteria. The findings revealed interrelations between criteria and presented the most important criteria for 3PL provider selection. It is believed that the results of the paper will help the managers to propose a model that can be implemented with the selection criteria of the 3PL service provider.

  • Evaluation of Business Manager's Reverse Logistics Perspectives:
           Sample of Malatya Organized Industrial

    • Authors: Mustafa Deste; Mevlüt Türk, Kadir Keke
      Abstract: The fact that technology has become aninseparable part of human life has led to an increase in the consumption andwaste amount, a decrease in natural resources, and environmental pollution toreach important dimensions. Along with these improvements, protection of theenvironment and wastes have become a legal obligation in front of theenterprises, and as the society becomes conscious about the protection of theenvironment, it has become very important in terms of customer satisfaction. Inthe case of logistics, the concept of reverse logistics, which refers to thecollection, storage and transport activities, which include the processes ofrecycling, reprocessing and destruction in general, became important.In this study, a descriptive researchhas been carried out on the business executives' evaluation of the reverselogistics perspective and their application to the reverse logistics. In thisframework, first the theoretical framework for the concept of reverse logisticswas established and the importance of reverse logistics for the country,society, environment and enterprises was emphasized and reverse logisticsapplications in our country were given place. In the application part of thestudy, face-to-face interviews were carried out with executives of 110companies operating in the Malatya Organized Industrial Zone, and a survey wasconducted. In the light of the obtained data, it is seen that the businessexecutives see the level of reverse logistics as a social responsibilitytowards the environment and collectivity; how to look at the way in whichreverse logistics can be used as an advertising tool and to give anenvironmental image to enterprises; the competitive advantage of reverselogistics, the contribution to customer satisfaction, and the degree ofparticipation in the views that benefit the business economy are evaluated andanalyzed whether the executives differ in terms of demographic characteristicsand some basic characteristics of the enterprises.

  • Personnel Assessment with CODAS and PSI Methods

    • Authors: Ayşegül Tuş; Esra Aytaç Adalı
      Abstract: Personnel assessment refers to any method of collecting information on individuals for the purpose of making a selection decision. Selection decisions include, but are not limited to, hiring, placement, promotion, referral and retention. Selecting qualified applicants is a critical step in building a talented and committed workforce, supporting an effective organizational culture, and enhancing the overall performance of the organization. In this paper three Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) methods, CRITIC (CRiteria Importance Through Intercriteria Correlation), PSI (Preference Selection Index) and CODAS (COmbinative Distance-based Assessment), are applied to the personnel selection problem for a textile firm in Denizli. The weights of personnel assessment criteria are derived from CRITIC method and transferred to CODAS method. The ranking of alternatives are obtained from CODAS and PSI methods.

  • Inflation Convergence in BRICS Countries: A Comprehensive Unit Root Test
           Analysis

    • Authors: Muhammed Tıraşoğlu; İpek M. Yurttagüler
      Abstract: One of the most controversial subject of economics literature is the concept of convergence. Particularly, the different types of convergence are used in empirical studies since 1980s. The aim of this study is to investigate the validity of inflation convergence in BRICS countries. In this context, the existence of inflation convergence is investigated using classical unit root tests, structural break unit root tests and nonlinear unit root tests. As a result of the analyses, we reached the result that the inflation convergence in BRICS countries is not valid, except the two tests for India and South Africa

  • Adapting EFQM Excellence Model for Public Transport Operators: A Case of
           IETT, Istanbul’s Public Bus Operator

    • Authors: Muhammet Deveci; Fatih Canıtez
      Abstract: There are several management approaches being utilized in public transport operators to achieve organizational performance. EFQM excellence model, promoted by the European Foundation for Quality Management, helps organizations achieve sustainable excellence with its holistic management framework. One of the most outstanding features of EFQM model is its balanced and holistic perspective for organizational performance based on continuous improvement approach to exceed the stakeholders’ expectations. In this study, we examine the way EFQM excellence model has been adapted and implemented for urban public transport operators through a case study of Istanbul’s public bus operator, IETT. The results of the case demonstrate the adaptation processes of the fundamental concepts of the model to a public transport operator’s organizational context, thus, providing an applicable management model for other public transport operators as well. EFQM excellence model has been adopted for the first time in a public transport company, therefore the results have significant implications to enhance quality initiatives in public transport operators, in particular, and urban mobility, in general.

  • Discrete Survival Time Models: An Application on Marriage Duration

    • Authors: Hilal Ölmez Hosta; Nihal Ata Tutkun
      Abstract: In survival analysis which is used in the social and physical sciences, it is usually assumed that the observed process is continuous. Since this assumption is not appropriate for most of the survival time data structure, survival times are measured wrongly and unreliable results are obtained for the discrete survival time data. Continuous time survival models used for the time data have represented the structure of data in the studies regarding health sciences. The usage of the discrete time survival models in social sciences is more common since the structure of the studied data is more appropriate for the discrete time models.In this study, discrete time survival models are examined theoretically and were applied to “Research on Domestic Violence against Women in Turkey, 2008” data received from Turkish Statistical Institute. In order to examine the factor effecting the duration of marriage, discrete time survival models have been used and achieved results have been interpreted.

  • A Clustering Based Classifier Ensemble Approach to Corporate Bankruptcy
           Prediction

    • Authors: Aytuğ Onan
      Abstract: Corporate bankruptcy prediction is an important research direction in finance. Building a robust prediction scheme for bankruptcy can be beneficial to several stakeholders, including management organizations, government and stockholders. Ensemble learning is a well-known technique to improve the predictive performance of classification algorithms by decreasing the generalization error and enhancing the classification accuracy. It has been a well-established technique in bankruptcy prediction to enhance the predictive performance. Diversity plays an essential role in constructing robust ensemble classification schemes. In this paper, a clustering based classifier ensemble approach is presented for corporate bankruptcy prediction. In this scheme, k-means algorithm is utilized to obtain diversified training subsets. Based on the subsets, each base learning algorithms are trained and the predictions of base learning algorithms are combined by a majority voting scheme. In the empirical analysis, four classification algorithms (namely, C4.5 algorithm, k-nearest neighbour algorithm, support vector machines and logistic regression) and three ensemble learning methods (Bagging, AdaBoost and Random Subspace) are evaluated.
