  • The Impact of Emotional Intelligence on Enhancing Women’s Leadership

    • Abstract: The percentage of women in leadership positions is increasing and advancing towards gender parity. However, the number of female leaders is still low when compared to male leaders. We endeavored to examine by means of a literature review the impact of Emotional Intelligence (EI) on women´s leadership since we found that EI is a key factor in predicting effective leadership traits. We also found there is a social perception that women tend to be seen as more emotional and empathic than men. We review the definitions of leadership and EI and explore the link between EI, leadership and women. Several leadership scholars and psychologists argue that EI is an important foundation for leadership effectiveness. We review the literature about how men and women compare in their EI attributes. When it comes to learning EI, men and women have the same opportunities to acquire a greater EI through reflection and experience. However, we highlight the necessity for increasing the number of women in leadership positions by enhancing and supporting women’s leadership competencies. Moreover, we emphasize the importance of building EI in order to achieve effective leadership.

  • Sustainable Supply Chain Management: Insights from Australia’s Firms

    • Abstract: While the sustainable supply chain is an emergent area of interest, the literature provides little guidance on how best to carry out sustainable supply chain management. The purpose of this paper is to provide hints to businesses on how best to approach the challenge of developing a sustainable supply chain. Hence, the case studies method is undertaken to explore how Australia’s companies that are prominent worldwide for their sustainability performance have approached the challenge of managing sustainability in their supply chain. This study finds that sustainability action plans and governance tools that rightly reflect requisites for suppliers, diverse evaluation means to measure the suppliers’ performance, and regular reviews of sustainable supply chain management practices and policies enable businesses to manage sustainability in their supply chain. The study contributes to the literature by providing a best practice model from the findings to provide practical guidance to businesses.

  • The Life Cycle of Converging Industries: The Evolution of the Tablet
           Sector and Its Impact on Competitive Dynamics

    • Abstract: Background of the study. In recent years a series of academic research projects in the economic managerial field have investigated the relationship between innovation and industrial evolution, providing new interpretive keys to improve the understanding of one of the most important events in the industries’ transformation in the current economy, that of digital convergence.Purpose of the paper and methodology. This research work provides an original contribution to the question of how market convergence affects industry evolution. The paper analyzes the convergence process that has influenced the evolution of the tablet sector and the dynamics of entry, exit, innovation and competition over the industry life cycle. From a methodological point of view, a historical-longitudinal study was carried out, which was aimed at examining – supported by a qualitative/quantitative analysis – the sequence of events that, over 30 years, influenced the development of the tablet industry. Findings and implications. From the analysis some interesting findings emerged. Firstly, it was found that the life cycle curve of the converging tablet industry defined on the basis of sales data followed the ‘S-shaped pattern’ empirically detected by product and industry life cycle studies. Secondly, we have verified that the evolution of firm population and the level of product innovation in the tablet industry are consistent with two temporal patterns that characterize the evolutionary model, identified by evolutionary economics and technology management studies. It has also been found that the sectoral convergence process has affected the dynamics of competition in the tablet industry. It emerged, in fact, that the leading companies in introductory stages of the development of the tablet market – which came from the personal computer industry – quickly lost their market position in favor to newcomer firms that came from different converging sectors. The analysis has also made it possible to highlight that tablet market leaders tend to compete with each other in multiple sectors within the scope of a broader convergent mobile digital device market. Therefore, a ‘hybrid competition’ seems to have been affirmed between technological devices – smartphones, notebooks, tablets, smartwatches, e-readers – different in shape, but united by satisfying, in different ways, a need for simplified access on the move to a series of advanced digital functions and services.

  • A Brand-New Method of Quantifying Lease Incremental Borrowing Rate under
           IFRS 16 and Topic 842

    • Abstract: One of the most contentious issues of lessee’s accounting under IFRS 16 and FASB ASC Topic 842 has been how to compute a lessee’s incremental borrowing rate (hereafter, IBR). A proper quantification of IBR is important because it affects the amount of a lessee’s right-of-use asset and lease liability recognized at lease commencement in the statement of financial position, as well as depreciation and interest expenses ongoing. Such a determination poses theoretical and practical difficulties to companies. This article develops a brand-new method that follows a conceptual approach that converge accounting and finance theory, to strike a balance between rigorous theory and practical application for companies. The proposed approach starts with a lessee’s actual average borrowing rate and compares it with its theoretical average borrowing rate based on synthetic rating. It then flexes the average rate along the interest term curve and derives the monthly rates applicable to each monthly cash flow. It adjusts the rates based on each specific lease features as defined in the standards, periodically updates the specific lease interest rate curves, and computes a lease IBR as the internal rate of return of the cash flows discounted at the monthly specific rates applicable to that specific lease. It finally compares with benchmarks. The proposed model is innovative because it is framed within, and consistent with, the definition of incremental borrowing rate in those accounting pronouncements, uses three starting references cross-checking each other, includes both an internal perspective of a company’s actual interest rates and an external market perspective, and is relatively easy to model in a partially automated spreadsheet application.

  • Business Combinations under Common Control: The Gain/loss Group
           Perspective. What the IASB Project Leaves Unaddressed

    • Abstract: Although BCUCCs are widespread, a clear treatment is missing under IFRS. Most contributions have taken partial views. This article innovatively provides a systematic theoretical apparatus of the role accounting plays for all the affected members of a group, with a focus on gain or loss opportunities below the consolidated statements. The method used is international technical accounting analysis under IFRS and U.S. GAAP. It shows how a BCUCC may be driven to achieve gain/loss in separate financial statements and how cross-company consistency in policies and substance may reveal gain/loss arbitrage; the interaction of principles for disposals, demergers, and business combinations; and the position of sub-holdings, which in real practice is more relevant than the ultimate parent company. This paper is timely, as the IASB has recently published a Discussion Paper. The IASB project fails to give answers to these points as it only looks at the receiving entity and consolidated statements.

  • Stocks Abnormal Returns and Rate of Dividend Announcements

    • Abstract: The present research study examined the impact of different dividend rate announcements on stocks prices in the Indian stock market. Stocks selected from S&P BSE 500 index and study period from 2008 – 2017. The sample used for this study is 1755 pure cash dividend announcements (492 large-caps, 425 mid-caps, and 838 small-caps). Dividend rates are classified into six classifications to test the stocks' abnormal returns to different dividend classifications. Event methodology market model used to calculate Average Abnormal Returns (AAR) and Cumulative Average Abnormal Returns (CAAR). The results were observed twenty-one times based on market capitalization and dividend rate wise for a final dividend announcement. The results of the study are not the same for different dividend rate classifications and different market capitalizations. The study found positive abnormal returns on event day in most of the classifications, and it is similar to Litzenberger and Ramaswamy (1982), Asquith and Mullins Jr (1983), Grinblatt, Masulis and Titman (1984), Chen, Nieh, Da Chen, and Tang (2009) and many previous research results studied in major developed stock markets and emerging stock markets. Full sample and small-cap final dividend rate 100 percent to 199 percent average abnormal returns are positively significant, and other final dividend rate classification abnormal returns are positive in most of the observations, but returns are not significant. Large-cap average abnormal returns are more sensitive to different dividend rates, and small-cap reacts positively in all classifications. So, different market capitalization final dividend actions impact on stocks in India varies in different dividend rate classifications.

  • The Influence of Social Crowding on Consumer Creativity

    • Abstract: The importance of consumer creativity is currently widely recognized, yet the examination of the influence of environmental elements on consumer creativity is still limited. Our research investigates the influence of social crowding on consumer creativity performance. While past research mainly focuses on extreme crowding conditions, our research examines the impact of a moderate level of social crowding, which is more commonly experienced in reality. From two lab experiments, our research shows that compared to consumers in crowded environments, consumers in uncrowded environments perform better on creativity tasks (e.g., designing promotion slogans and identifying solutions to problems). Furthermore, the effect of social crowding is mediated by approach motives. Consumers in an uncrowded (vs. crowded) environment are more likely to trigger approach-based motivation, which enhances their creativity performance. These findings extend our knowledge of social crowding and creativity and can help consumers and companies improve creativity performance in appropriate environments.

  • Implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) in Bangladesh
           -Opportunities and Challenges

    • Abstract: An enterprise resource planning (ERP) project is a sizable enterprise application either in the business and engineering perspective. It creates huge alterations and frequently entails calling into question several traditional roles within the business, for which individuals are rarely well ready. It frequently involves the execution of numerous new approaches and their integration with existing programs and frequently reflects one of the bigger IT jobs -- one of the highly crucial ones in many businesses, cooperation between industry and IT extends into international cooperation between many small business units and many entities of their IT division. The achievement of this undertaking will count on the caliber of the cooperation. Before beginning such a difficult endeavor, certain conditions have to be ensured. The business has to see to adulthood in ERP and also the management and technical capacities of their IT division and the capability of the business and IT to work together. Without these requirements, companies wouldn't have the ability to lead and get different stages of an ERP project. This preparation could require a few educational and communication efforts which can be essential for success. This study has been undertaken to address the viability of installing ERP in any enterprise and its benefits and challenges in Bangladesh. ERPs are highly technical issues with numerous benefits. It requires a lot of preconditions to be installed. By reviewing the literature and going through several recent research, a concept is tried to be developed here in this study. Idea about current status of ERP practices in Bangladesh has been generated from various circulars and reports produced by the companies. The study found that productivity and profits are increased by implementing ERP in the local enterprises but a lot of challenges are to be addressed. The infrastructure of IT and power supply should be ensured to gain optimum advantages. The employees should be well trained to run the system successfully.
