  • A Study of the Awareness of Wearable Medical Devices in India: A Potential
           Market Perspective

    • Authors: Shweta Nanda, Bhupender K Som
      First page: 83
      Abstract: A Medical Wearable Device provides vital sign monitoring. Therefore, it involves monitoring of one or more of the following or any other physiological vital that has application in fitness monitoring and medical diagnostic such as; blood glucose level; blood pressure; pulse rate; electrocardiograph (ECG) patterns; respiration rate; respiration effectiveness (e.g., blood oxygen saturation). Hence the Medical Wearable Devices are extremely useful precautionary gadgets. A number of such devices are available in market these days. Despite of their usefulness they are not very popular in India. This may be due to low level of awareness. As Metropolitan cities is primary market for such gadgets.This paper focuses on the awareness level of the medical wearable devices in Delhi-NCR and studies awareness with respect to suitable demographics. Further, this paper identifies the key parameters in role of the education, qualification and purchase power parity for adoption of this device. The insights drawn from the vast health literature helps to develop the behavioral conceptual framework which becomes the basis to gather the primary data.

  • Sustainability Dilemmas: Risk and Uncertainty in Supply Chain Management

    • Authors: Agrogiannis S., Kinias I.
      First page: 95
      Abstract: Contrary to the considerable development of Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM) research, the level of conceptual clarity falls short in unveiling the strategic implications of sustainability integration into core business practices. This leads to dilemmas with respect to aspired and achieved levels of business responsibility increasing exposure to financial and sustainability hazards. Given the various incidents of supplier misconduct and cases where no apparent breaches still impose threats to buying firms, it is undeniably mesmeric experiencing the defiance of “common sense” law: just because risks are classified, and responses are deployed, it would be wrong to assume that vulnerability is eradicated. To overcome impediments, we need to discern between uncertainty and risk. To this end, literature supports that firms address issues based on instrumental and moral rationales encompassing fundamentally different justifications. Building on work from risk management, SSCM, paradox as well as management accounting and control, and inserting ideas from entrepreneurship literature, we investigate these particularities and explain how firms could develop their sustainability initiatives and risk management strategies across their Supply Chains (SCs) through an integrative framework. This refinement allows us to increase the odds of more sustainable SCs through a multilevel approach reverberating the interface of strategy and operations. The paper concludes with commenting on the theoretical and managerial implications as well as proposing avenues for future research.

  • Corporate Governance on the Performance of Internal Auditors in Thailand
           Public Limited Company

    • Authors: Sutana Narkchai, Faudziah Hanim Binti Fadzil, Sompon Thungwha
      First page: 118
      Abstract: The issue of performance of internal auditors is important since Thailand was also affected by the accounting scandals. The expanded scope in the definition of internal auditing and new regulatory requirements such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act 2002 has increased the demands on internal auditing. This study was conducted to examine the relationship between the corporate governance on the performance of internal auditors in Thailand public limited companies. In this study, corporate governance relates to the board of directors size and audit committee size to the performance of the internal auditor. To achieve this objective, two hypotheses were developed based on previous studies and the agency theory. Survey questionnaires were sent to the Chief Audit Executives (CAEs) to determine the effectiveness on their performance based on the professional standards issued by the IPPF (2017) indicators. A total of 520 questionnaires were distributed, but only 146 were usable. Multiple regressions were used to test the relationship between the variables. The result showed that there is insignificant relationship between board of director’s size and internal auditors’ performance. This study however found that audit committee size has a positive relationship on the performance of internal auditors. Therefore, audit committee need to increase higher responsibility with regard to corporate governance by overseeing financial reporting and internal control matters.

  • Globalization and Foreign Trade of Pakistan with D-8 Group

    • Authors: Mubashir Hussain
      First page: 133
      Abstract: Globalization has made the world smaller and flatter which is called “the death of distance”. This phenomenon has brought considerable increase in international trade in recent past. Many developing countries have been benefitted from the fruits of globalization and many other like Pakistan have lagged behind in the race. Pakistan is suffering persistently from trade deficit since 2003 and by the same point of time India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh which share similar socio-economic conditions to Pakistan: are experiencing upward trend. This study investigates the popular theory “the gravity model of trade” in the context of Pakistan’s export flow to D-8 group. The gravity trade model has been innovated by introducing overall Globalization Index (GI) which led to improve explanatory power of gravity model. This research, in panel setting has used annual data ranging from 2003 to 2013, by employing advance estimation technique PPML, Estimator. The empirical results of the study infer that GDP, population and distance confirm the basic gravity model. While the globalization Index and contiguity variables are against the expected signs. Therfore, it is concluded that Pakistan need to explore new destinations specially should target the developing countries for its exports.

  • Enhancing Organizational Performance by Knowledge Sharing

    • Authors: S L Chau
      First page: 154
      Abstract: Knowledge management can be regarded as one of the key processes of organizational learning. It is well accepted that learning organizations can enhance their capability and hence competitiveness and performance through learning. Recognizing the importance of knowledge management, researchers are interested in exploring knowledge sharing activities because such activities are the cornerstone of other knowledge management activities. It is argued that a fundamental purpose of managing knowledge is to establish a shared context in organizations. As such, what factors affect interpersonal knowledge sharing and how they affect interpersonal knowledge sharing in organizations are critical and worth noting. A preliminary model from an organizational behavior perspective is proposed which will serve as the framework for further study.

  • Another Look at Enterprise Architecture Framework

    • Authors: Shuichiro Yamamoto, Nada Ibrahem Olayan, Shuji Morisaki
      First page: 172
      Abstract: Although there were many comparison literatures of EA frameworks, these literature use qualitative criteria based on intuitive practitioner’s experience. The paper first defines 36 concrete features of EA frameworks using six categories and six interrogatives. Then we concretely compare typical EA frameworks based on the key features. The result shows the easiness and concreteness of the proposed EA comparison framework.

  • The Day Ahead: IPO Today, Acquired Tomorrow'

    • Authors: Qian W. Mao, Mingshan Zhang, Lin Zou
      First page: 184
      Abstract: We study the double exit phenomenon—new IPO firms get acquired quickly in the M & A market. In this paper, we attempt to discern the distinct characteristics of new public firms that made them acquired soon after their IPOs. Specifically we find that double exit firms are those backed by venture capital. Double exit firms generally have prestigious investment banks underwrite their IPOs. High technology firms are more likely to be taken over soon after their IPOs. Also, double exit firms have higher level of intangible assets. We suggest that IPO may play an important role in firms’ following acquisition incidence. First, IPO helps to reduce ex ante transaction costs between firms and financial markets, such as raising external capitals. Second, IPOs wink signals concerning the quality of the firm.
