  • Makeup Calls in Organizations: An Application of Justice to the Study of
           Bad Calls

    • Authors: Meghan A. Thornton-Lugo et al.
      Abstract: In this article, we assess whether actors provide makeup calls as amends for their wrongdoing following bad calls. We examined these effects using organizational justice as a lens. Two archival data sets from Major League Baseball and financial analysts (Study 1 and Study 3), one experimental data set (Study 2), and one mixed-method data set from a field study (Study 4) provided evidence for the positive relationship between bad calls and makeup calls. We also found evidence for a mediating effect of guilt and a first-stage moderating effect of outcome gravity. This article contributes to the literature not only by providing insight into the experience of actors who provide unfair treatment to others but also by exploring the behavioral remedies that actors use to restore justice.

  • A Self-Regulatory Model of How Future Work Selves Change During Job Search
           and the School-to-Work Transition

    • Authors: Ray T. Fang et al.
      Abstract: To better understand the identity-shaping experiences of students during their school-to-work transition, we developed and tested a model of how students' future work selves change as they search for jobs. We propose that a job seeker's future work self becomes more or less salient depending on how they manage job search challenges. We further propose that change in future work self salience influences job search success through engagement in more effective job search behaviors. Results from a three-wave, three-month longitudinal survey of 539 undergraduate business school job seekers indicated that when they exercised higher levels of motivation control, their future work selves grew more salient. Further, as job seekers' future work selves became more salient, they conducted a more intense job search and used more focused and exploratory job search strategies. Higher job search intensity and a more exploratory strategy predicted more interview invitations, whereas a more focused strategy predicted more job offers. Finally, analyses suggest that future work self salience and job search behaviors mediate the relationship between motivation control and job search outcomes. We discuss the theoretical and practical implications of our findings.

  • How Contextual and Individual Characteristics Influence Psychological
           Needs Satisfaction: The Critical Roles of Political Skill and Political
           Will

    • Authors: Aqsa Ejaz et al.
      Abstract: This two-study research package investigates the interactive effects of perceptions of organizational politics, political skill, and political will on psychological need satisfaction, which has been shown to predict a number of different important organizational outcomes. Drawing primarily on social/political influence and self-determination theories, we propose that although perceptions of organizational politics (i.e., as an important situational or contextual variable) can demonstrate need-thwarting effects for some, its effects can be need-satisfying for those individuals with high levels of political skill and political will. In Study 1, we analyze a sample of 142 individuals to demonstrate that possessing political skill attenuates the negative effects of perceptions of organizational politics on psychological need satisfaction. In Study 2, we analyze a sample of 420 individuals to demonstrate that respondents with high levels of both political skill and political will experience their highest levels of need satisfaction in highly political environments. Theoretical contributions, limitations and future research directions, and practical implications are discussed.

  • Perceptions of Organizational Politics: A Restricted Nonlinearity
           Perspective of Its Effects on Job Satisfaction and Performance

    • Authors: B. Parker Ellen III et al.
      Abstract: This study examined a restricted nonlinearity perspective of the relationship between perceptions of organizational politics (POPs) and work outcomes (i.e., job satisfaction and job performance), dependent upon the level of employee loyalty. Consistent with prior work, we conceptualized POPs as a demand that can have positive effects on job satisfaction and performance, up to certain levels, before negative effects are observed as levels of POPs continue to increase to more extreme levels. Drawing upon the transactional theory of stress, we then argued that this relationship would hold for more loyal employees. However, we hypothesized that these relationships would take a more linear and negative form for less loyal employees. Data analyses of a sample of 177 financial services employees offered mixed support for our hypotheses, replicating prior work that showed a nonlinear, inverse-U-shaped relationship between POPs and job satisfaction, and demonstrating an inverted U-shaped relationship between POPs and both satisfaction and performance for more loyal employees, but not for less loyal employees. We discuss contributions to theory and research, limitations, directions for future research, and practical implications.

  • Forty Years of Political Skill and Will in Organizations: A Review,
           Meta-Theoretical Framework and Directions for Future Research

    • Authors: Liam P. Maher et al.
      Abstract: Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to review the scholarship on political skill and political will so that the authors might inspire future work that assesses these constructs individually and in tandem.Design/methodology/approach – The “political skill” and “political will” concepts were introduced about 40 years ago, but they only have been measured and produced empirical results much more recently. Since that time, substantial research results have demonstrated the important roles political skill and political will play in organizational behavior. This paper provides a comprehensive review of this research, draws conclusions from this work and provides a meta-theoretical framework of political skill and political will to guide future work in this area.Findings – Scholarship in this area has developed quite rapidly for political skill, but less so for political will. The authors hope that recent developments in a political will can set the stage for scholars to create a theoretical and empirical balance between these two related constructs.Originality/value – The authors corral the vast and widespread literature on political skill and will and distill the information for scholars and practitioners alike.

  • Backpack Bootstrapping: Social Entrepreneurship Education Through
           Experiential Learning

    • Authors: Bastian Thomsen et al.
      Abstract: This paper addresses a gap in the literature regarding social entrepreneurship education through an exploratory study that leverages three separate, but distinct experiential learning projects. Students were randomly assigned into three separate groups: action-research, service learning, and a ‘traditional’ new social enterprise venture. All three approaches fostered student development and social entrepreneurial skill building. However, experiential learning (action research and service-learning) placed a greater emphasis on student comprehension of the subject matter in relation to the weight of responsibility they experienced by partnering with third-party organisations outside the classroom, compared to the traditional new venture approach. The findings indicate that experiential learning is an optimal conduit to student maturity when coupled with self-reflection and class discussion. The term backpack bootstrapping is introduced to illustrate how students rapidly learn by taking on a real but manageable weight of responsibility they assign to themselves. This study is original for its approach to incorporating student voices to gauge how their learning may be enhanced to improve social entrepreneurship education. Although it is an exploratory study and limited in its scope (26 students over one semester), it provides a basis for further research using experiential learning models in social entrepreneurship education.

  • Survival in a New Industry: Marijuana, Venture Structure and Outcomes

    • Authors: Karen Nicholas et al.
      Abstract: Purpose – The purpose of this study is to explore how new firms enter a new industry and which structure will support survival. Essentially, the study examines the extent to which new firms choose to be broad with regard to the industry supply chain and deep with regard to their market presence. Based on these two structural decisions, each one is examined independently and in conjunction to discover which aspects support survival.Design/methodology/approach – A quantitative approach was adopted, consisting of using data supplied by the state of Colorado. More specifically, the study draws on empirical data that identifies which license type (grower, manufacturer and retailer) each firm chose to get and how many retail outlets the firm chose to operate.Findings – The findings reveal that firms that cover the breadth of the supply chain are twice as likely to survive, while a broad market presence increases the risk of exit by 2.5 times. When the two factors were combined, it was firms with broad integration and deep market presence that had the highest chance of survival, as opposed to firms with intuition. A deep market presence seemed to accentuate the effect of integration, increasing the risk when the firm was not integrated, while increasing the survival rate when the firm was integrated.Research limitations/implications – This industry is quite new and afforded a unique opportunity to examine the impact of firm structure on survival. However, it may not be generalizable to other industries.Practical implications – The present analysis argues that firms must adopt a holistic approach to their firm structure, because there are combinatorial effects at play. That is, while one specific strategy may increase survival, other strategies may impact firm survival. Examining and understanding the interplay of firm decisions are critical for firm survival.Originality/value – Because of the lack of the formation of new industries, the authors’ understanding of the impact of firm structure on survival is limited. This unique context afforded the opportunity to empirically examine how firms can increase their chance of survival based on two aspects of firm structure: the breadth of the supply chain and the depth of the firm’s market presence.

  • Laws, Educational Outcomes, and Returns to Schooling Evidence from the
           First Wave of U.S. State Compulsory Attendance Laws

    • Authors: Karen Clay et al.
      Abstract: The nineteenth and twentieth century saw two waves of state schooling laws. The first wave focused on children to age 14 and the second wave focused on high school. Using the full count 1940 census and a new coding of state laws, this paper provides new estimates of the effects of the first wave of laws. The analysis focuses on cohorts of prime working age between 1910 and 1940. IV estimates of returns to schooling range from 0.067 to 0.077. Quantile IV estimates show the returns were largest for the lowest quantiles, and were generally monotonically decreasing for higher quantiles.

  • Impact of Relatedness, Uncertainty and Slack on Corporate Entrepreneurship
           Decisions

    • Authors: Robert Garrett et al.
      Abstract: Purpose – The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of opportunity relatedness and uncertainty on the decision of a corporate entrepreneur to pursue a venturing opportunity.Design/methodology/approach – The study uses a conjoint experimental design to reveal the structure of respondents' decision policies. Data were gathered from 47 useable replies from corporate entrepreneurs and were analyzed with hierarchical linear modeling (HLM).Findings – Results show that product relatedness, market relatedness, perceived certainty about expected outcomes and slack resources all have a positive effect on the willingness of a corporate entrepreneur to pursue a new venture idea. Moreover, slack was found to diminish the positive effect of product relatedness on the likelihood to pursue a venturing opportunity.Practical implications – By providing a better understanding of decision-making schemas of corporate entrepreneurs, the findings of this study help improve the practice of entrepreneurship at the organizational level. In order to make more accurate opportunity assessments, corporate entrepreneurs need to be aware of their cognitive strategies and need to factor in the salient criteria affecting such assessments.Originality/value – This paper adds to the limited understanding of corporate-level decision-making with regard to pursuing venturing opportunities. More specifically, the paper adds new insights regarding how relatedness and uncertainty affect new venture opportunity assessments in the presence (or lack thereof) of slack resources.

  • Transcultural Development

    • Authors: Bastian Thomsen et al.
      Abstract: In practice, development too often neglects the perspective of the impoverished when attempting to ameliorate negative socioeconomic conditions that persist. Entrepreneurs, and in particular social entrepreneurs, often attempt to solve social issues through a triple-bottom line approach but in many cases focus on the problem without greater consideration to the cultural context of their intervention. We introduce a new term, transcultural development, to advocate for the inclusion and preservation of cultural norms and rights of receiving cultures in the face of globalization, particularly when conducting projects that attempt to alleviate poverty. Presented is an applied ethnographic study conducted by two faculty members and seven undergraduate students consulting for a non-governmental organization (NGO) social enterprise over a ten-day short-term study abroad trip. The NGO and student group aimed to assist impoverished Guatemalans inhabiting the southwestern coastal plain to develop a new export crop, the pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan). Gender norms and rights proved a focal point in demonstrating the importance of conducting social impact assessments regularly to mitigate entrenched or biased views. The transcultural development approach may optimally incorporate an applied anthropological lens to the social aspects of social entrepreneurship.

  • Perceptions of Organizational Politics Research: Past, Present, and Future

    • Authors: Wayne A. Hochwarter et al.
      Abstract: Research examining the influence of perceptions of organizational politics (POPs) is currently at a nexus—capable of recognizing its previous contributions but also with an eye toward the future. Scholars credit much of the maturation over the past 30 years to Ferris, Russ, and Fandt’s seminal model. Despite the ever-increasing number of publications attributed to this topic, and model, opportunities to bridge and expand the current research base remain plentiful. We begin this review by differentiating POPs from political behavior and constructs considered overlapping conceptually. We then describe the evolution of two models responsible for guiding POPs research and conclude our review by summarizing meta-analytic studies investigating antecedents and outcomes of POPs. Doing so allows us to identify gaps currently impeding development and to recommend relevant approaches to extend research. Following this review, we introduce event systems theory as a guiding framework for integrating and expanding the knowledge base. This structure allows scholars to recast POPs as a discrete phenomenon capable of being evaluated in terms of its novelty, disruption, and criticality. Theoretically, this approach allows for greater precision in identifying causes and consequences of POPs, and it provides insight into how such perceptions emerge and evolve. Last, we discuss future research opportunities intended to improve understanding of this pervasive phenomenon, and we encourage much-needed future research examining the dynamics of POPs in contemporary work settings.

  • Primary Jurisdiction and the Limits of Measurement in Mass Litigation

    • Authors: Jeff Lingwall
      Abstract: This Article examines the use of primary jurisdiction through the lens of institutional economics and the ongoing revolution in pre-suit, plaintiff-side testing in mass litigation. In this setting, primary jurisdiction serves a necessary pro-agency institutional role. The ability of plaintiffs’ attorneys to easily generate sophisticated laboratory testing results has allowed them to create a quasi-regulatory quality-control regime for defendants’ products and extract value from it through enhanced settlements. This offers defendants the burdens of regulation without the benefits of uniformity or policymakers with subject-matter expertise and capacity for public input. Primary jurisdiction enables defendants in mass litigation to move these quasi-regulatory actions back to regulatory settings, where the potential for efficient quality-control standards increases with agency expertise. Shifting decision-making in testing-based actions to agencies then preserves this value from conversion into litigation-based transaction costs. As scientific resolving power and the scope of potentially measurable harm evolve, primary jurisdiction thus functions as a central balancing mechanism allowing corresponding evolution in adjudication.

  • Recruiter Political Skill and Organization Reputation Effects on Job
           Applicant Attraction in the Recruitment Process: A Multi-Study
           Investigation

    • Authors: Diane Lawong et al.
      Abstract: Purpose – Researchers have identified various recruiter and organization characteristics that individually influence staffing effectiveness. In extending contemporary research, the purpose of this paper is to address a straightforward question unexamined in previous research, namely, does recruiter political skill interact with organization reputation to influence applicant attraction in the recruitment process' Specifically, the authors hypothesized that for recruiters high in political skill, as organization reputation increases, applicant attraction to the organization increases. Alternatively, for recruiters low in political skill, as organization reputation increases, there is no change in applicant attraction to the organization.Design/methodology/approach – Three studies were conducted to create the experimental manipulation materials, pilot test them and then conduct tests of the hypotheses. Study 1 created and tested the content validity of the recruiter political skill script. Study 2 reported on the effectiveness of the recruiter political skill experimental manipulation, whereby a male actor was hired to play the part of a recruiter high in political skill and one low in political skill. Finally, Study 3 was the primary hypothesis testing investigation.Findings – Results from a 2×2 between-subjects experimental study (N=576) supported the hypotheses. Specifically, high recruiter political skill and favorable organization reputation each demonstrated significant main effects on applicant attraction to the organization. Additionally, the authors hypothesized, and confirmed, a significant organization reputation × recruiter political skill interaction. Specifically, findings demonstrated that increases in organization reputation resulted in increased applicant attraction to the organization for those exposed to a recruiter high in political skill. However, the effect was not for a recruiter low in political skill.Research limitations/implications – Despite the single source nature of data collections, the authors took steps to minimize potential biasing factors (e.g. time separation, including affectivity). Future research will benefit from gathering multiple sources of data. In addition, no experimental research to date exists, examining political skill in a laboratory context. This finding has important implications for the growing research base on political skill in organizations.Practical implications – First impressions are lasting impressions, and it is very costly to organizations when recruiters lose good candidates due to the failure to make a memorable and favorable impression. This paper supports the use of political skill in the recruitment process and highlights its capability to influence and attract job applicants to organizations successfully.Originality/value – Despite its scientific and practical appeal, the causal effects of political skill on important work outcomes in an experimental setting have not been formally investigated. As the first experimental investigation of political skill, the authors can see more clearly and precisely what political skill behaviors of recruiters tend to influence applicant attraction to organizations in the recruitment process.

  • The Journey of U.S. Korean Children: (Re)constructing Bicultural
           Identities in Picture Books

    • Authors: Eun Hye Son et al.
      Abstract: The term "Asian Americans" was used after the Civil Rights movement by Asian Americans to claim their lawful right as citizens to reconstruct their own collective identities (Chae, 2008). A problem arises, however, when collective representation is married to multiculturalism for categorical usages that encourage society's understanding of Asian Americans to become simplified. With the result, ethnic differences can be unintentionally ignored in favor of simplistic racial categorization. When such conceptual categories serve as a major referencing tool to indicate sociocultural ethnic groups, the internal diversity of those groups is unacknowledged. The U.S. Koreans, for example, are not all immigrants. Many have become U.S. citizens or were born in the U.S. Currently there are over a mi llion people of Korean descent residing in the U.S. (Yi, 2014). Between 1976 and 1990, Korea was the third largest source country of immigrants to the United States, after Mexico and the Philippines (Min, 20 l l ). Given the long hi story of Korean immigration to the United States, it is not hard to imagine bow complicated and profound the internal diversity and cultural dynamics must be among U.S. Koreans.

  • Chinese Children’s School Experiences Represented in Picture Books

    • Authors: Lin Gou et al.
      Abstract: In a graduate level children’s literature class, Eun Hye, the second author, was facilitating the discussion of the importance of multicultural children’s literature from an assigned reading of Rudine Sims Bishop's “Mirrors, Windows, and Sliding Glass Doors” (1990). As Lin, the first author, was engaged in the discussion by sharing different childhood experiences, one student, who was adopted from China by Americans as a toddler, said that she found herself rarely represented in picture books while growing up in the U.S. We both felt bad because we grew up in China and Korea respectively, surrounded by many children’s books representing children like ourselves. However, when we each came to the United States in our 20s to attend higher education, we quickly learned that there is a limited number of books portraying Chinese and Korean children living in the United States. At different time periods, we both developed intellectual interests toward critically examining how these two groups of children (Chinese and Korean) have been portrayed in multicultural children’s books.

  • The Heterogeneous and Transfer Effects of a Texting-Based Intervention on
           Enhancing University English Learners’ Vocabulary Knowledge

    • Authors: Jia Li et al.
      Abstract: Despite the growing body of technology-assisted vocabulary intervention studies, few have addressed learning outcomes beyond target vocabulary and the interaction between the interventions and English language learners’ (ELLs) initially different levels of vocabulary knowledge. The study examined the differential effects of a texting-based intervention on ELLs’ learning of target (direct effect) and general vocabulary knowledge (transfer effect) as a function of learners’ initial vocabulary levels. Canadian undergraduate ELLs (N = 115) participated in a 9-week intervention study. The findings showed that texting-based instruction effectively supported university ELLs’ acquisition of academic vocabulary; varied direct and indirect learning outcomes were found given learners’ different initial vocabulary levels. These results provide insights into the design of future vocabulary interventions by considering the complex interactions between learners’ initial vocabulary knowledge and the technology scaffoldings used for interventions.

  • Aviation Student Handbook

    • Authors: Julie Lynch
      Abstract: My project was a professional action document. I have created an Aviation Student Handbook to help guide staff and students through the complexities of applying, enrolling, and being successful in Treasure Valley Community College Aviation programs. In addition, it places college standard statements, instructions for changing degrees or programs, instructions for withdrawal and refund requests and student resources in one place. It identifies a process for Student Success Plans when a student struggles. It also gives a pathway for students who leave the program to request re-entry and guides staff through those steps.

  • Contextualizing Self-Disclosure to the Online Environment: An Assessment
           of the Literature

    • Authors: Teagen Nabity-Grover et al.
      Abstract: Online self-disclosure – any message about the self that one person communicates to another – has been studied for nearly two decades. Self-disclosure research started with the study of face-to-face interactions within the communications and psychology disciplines and expanded to study communicative behaviors online in many disciplines, including Information Systems. This paper develops a framework to evaluate how effectively self-disclosure measures are contextualized to the online environment. To do so, we review the multidisciplinary literature on online self-disclosure, analyze online self-disclosure measures, and evaluate their degree of contextualization to online interactions. We find inconsistent measurement of online self-disclosure and reported results across studies. Based on our analysis, we provide recommendations for improving the contextualization and measurement of self-disclosure in online environments, including reconceptualizing the dimension of intent, improving the quality of existing instruments, and identifying context-specific dimensions to address the unique features of online communication.

  • Using Role Play to Teach Complexity in IT Project Management

    • Authors: Amy J. Connolly et al.
      Abstract: In this paper, we describe a study involving a role play exercise situated in a project management class that is designed to create an emotionally ambiguous setting that helps students recognize, adapt to, and critically reflect on the constellation of complex events that can happen on a project. This activity is designed to overcome the difficulty of reliably developing soft skills in the classroom. Soft skills (e.g. empathy, emotional intelligence, communication, conflict resolution) are complex, developed through practice, and involve ambiguity, and are highly sought-after in industry. Based on the teaching principles of adult learning theory (andragogy), we illustrate how the role play approach can enhance learning in the IT project management course. We then propose a method to measure students’ perceptions of the class exercise to gauge its effectiveness. This study contributes to research on IT project management, IS pedagogy and social inclusion.

  • Data Quality Relevance in Linguistic Analysis: The Impact of Transcription
           Errors on Multiple Methods of Linguistic Analysis

    • Authors: Steven Pentland et al.
      Abstract: There is an enormous amount of recorded speech generated daily, and quickly transcribing and analyzing the text of this speech could have tremendous value to organizations and researchers. However, the speech transcription process has historically been laborious, expensive, and slow. Automatic speech recognition (ASR) tools have matured a great deal in the last decade and may be a suitable method to generate large scale, high quality transcriptions. These tools are are fast and economical, but generally produce errors at a much greater rate than human transcribers. It is unknown whether these errors matter when conducting psycholinguistic research. In this study, we will investigate the accuracy of earnings conference call transcripts produced by multiple tools and the impact of that transcription accuracy on the results of subsequent text mining analysis. While prior studies have focused on a single form of text mining, we will conduct three types of text analysis: bag-of-words based classification, lexicon-based classification and sentiment analysis. The results will show whether a different level of transcription quality is required for different types of text mining and the feasibility of using automated transcription services across a range of text mining applications.

  • Effects of Work Environment and Collaboration on Research Productivity in
           Vietnamese Social Sciences: Evidence from 2008 to 2017 Scopus Data

    • Authors: Quan-Hoang Vuong et al.
      Abstract: Identifying factors that affect research productivity is critical to both the scientific community and policy-makers. This topic is especially useful for developing countries like Vietnam where such studies are scarce with limited original data. This paper, through a manual data collection process that yields the profiles of 406 Vietnamese social scientists with publications in Scopus-indexed journals in 2008–2017, uses the ordinary least squares method to analyse the effects of two factors on research productivity. It adds to the literature by showing the extent to which (i) work environment (‘universities’ and ‘research institutions’); (ii) collaboration affect the adjusted research productivity of social scientists. Contrary to the usual belief, university-affiliated authors in Vietnam turned out to have higher research productivity than institution-affiliated peers. International collaboration could boost research output, although this effect is insignificant among the high-performing authors. The paper also suggests some policy implications for Vietnam facing challenges in science management.

  • Temporal and Spatial Population Dynamics of the Nomadic Short-Eared Owl
           Across the Western United States

    • Authors: Robert A. Miller et al.
      Abstract: The short-eared owl (Asio flammeus) is a species of conservation concern in the western United States, and populations are declining throughout its range. Because of its low site fidelity, nomadic lifestyle, and irruptive breeding dynamics across large landscapes, estimating trends at regional or broader scales is difficult. To address that challenge, we recruited community-science participants to implement a multi-year survey of short-eared owls across a study area encompassing 8 western states: California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. We stratified our study area by potential habitat, established 50 spatially balanced transects per state, each with 8–11 survey points, and visited each transect twice per year to perform a 5-minute point count. From 2018–2020, transect occupancy rates of short-eared owls were highly variable within individual states but reasonably stable over our study area. California, Idaho, Utah, and Washington were the only states where occupancy rates were stable year to year, with the most stability in Utah and Washington. More monitoring may be warranted to address spatial and temporal variability in abundance of this species that may be influenced by small-mammal cycles. Our results illustrate the large movements of individuals across regions that may be required to support the North American population, emphasizing the need for broad geographic monitoring and conservation strategies for short-eared owls.

  • Harmonious Insurrections: “Labor Progressivism” and Working-Class
           Power in Washington State, 1886–1919

    • Authors: Shaun S. Nichols
      Abstract: Exceptionalism has long defined our understanding of the rise of progressive politics in the early twentieth-century United States. While industrialized European nations blazed the path of social democracy, in the United States, it is argued, “progressivism” merely legitimized middle-class cultural hegemony, social engineering, and the subversion of working-class power. In this era, however, social reform was a distinctly state-led phenomenon, only rarely taken up by the federal Congress. As such, by analyzing labor protest at the level of the state—in this case, Washington—a different interpretation emerges. American “progressivism” was neither exceptionally repressive nor of little interest to labor. In fact, espousing a language of progress, the common good, and the duty of the state to promote “social harmony,” Washington workers actively drew on “progressive” ideas in their struggles to tame the excesses of industrial capitalism. This ideology of “labor progressivism” became the foundation for unprecedented working-class power.

  • Change the World One Worm at a Time!

    • Authors: David C. Goff
      Abstract: My Capstone Project aims to blend the old with the new. It's about taking tried-and-true farming practices and breathing new life into them with innovative, sustainable solutions. It seeks to balance making a living from the land and caring for it for future generations.The project's core revolves around Organic Worm Tea, a natural product we've been developing and testing. This process involves rolling up our sleeves, getting our hands dirty, and observing the tea's effect on various farms, including those run by immigrant farmers who bring unique farming traditions from their home countries.But this project isn't just about my local farming community; it's also about the bigger picture. My project aims to inspire more farmers to adopt these practices by showing that sustainable farming can pay the bills. Ultimately, this could trigger a ripple effect, transforming the world of agriculture into one that's healthier and more sustainable.

  • Transition a Squadron to Microsoft Teams

    • Authors: David C. Methvin Jr.
      Abstract: Over the past six weeks, I have embarked on a quest to increase my squadron's productivity by addressing continuity, communication, and file storage. The method by which I addressed these issues is by transitioning the squadron to Microsoft Teams. The transition to Teams required planning, as we have four major sections of the squadron, all working different shifts because we operate 24/7. It required creativity, not only because of the 24/7 ops but also because utilizing Teams was different from the traditional way in which we would solve these sorts of problems. It also required me to get out of my comfort zone. I am an instructor, so teaching others was easy, but I am not technologically inclined, so tackling a project about technology required me to push myself.The project was an overall success, with room for improvement and growth in the future. We have transitioned roughly 90% of the squadron to utilizing Microsoft Teams for their shops and teams. We have created an easy way to communicate with each other and track goals, tasks, and projects. Overwhelmingly, the people utilizing the new system agree that it is a good move and valuable.

  • Patients’ Expectations for and Experiences with Primary Healthcare
           Services Received from a Patient Centered Medical Home

    • Authors: Janet Reis et al.
      Abstract: Objective: Expectations for and experiences with healthcare services are summarized for 1143 patients receiving care in a statewide demonstration of Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMH).Methods: Patients were recruited from 91 primary care clinics for semi-structured interviews to determine what patients expect, what they plan to do and how they intend to execute their plans in partnership with their healthcare team.Results: The majority (78%) of patients defined the patient-team partnership as a collaborative and problem-solving effort. Overall, 68% defined responsibility for own health as a personal responsibility; 55% defined listening to patient’s concerns and answering questions as a responsibility of their healthcare team. Diet and exercise came up most frequently whether as a personal responsibility, issues for receiving additional help from their clinic, or plans for personal change.Conclusion: Patients’ preferred a collaborative, problem-solving healthcare team partnership but also had boundaries for what additional services they wanted from this team.Practice Implications: Patients’ expectations for a collaborative partnership, acceptance of personal responsibility and interest in diet and exercise expands opportunities for patient education and teamwork. Clinics’ engagement with broader resources would be needed to address patients’ many and varied challenges to taking care of their health.

  • Modeling the Way

    • Authors: Robyn Bohn
      Abstract: My name is Robyn Bohn. I’m a high school business teacher in Nampa, Idaho. COVID has decimated our local Business Professionals of America chapter. The 495 Applied Leadership capstone project titled Modeling the Way is my creative journey working with our new student leadership team to create a recruiting program.During this project, I led the group through a workshop to creatively address the root cause of the lack of student participation. The student leaders decided that designing a poster series with 4 different perspectives would reach the largest audience. To further engage the interested young men and women, we also recorded, edited, and published a video accessed by QR code that was displayed on each poster. The video summarized the benefits of joining BPA and ended with student comments, in their own words, about their favorite fun activity, event, or competition. After several rounds of edits, the posters were printed and hung in the three high schools in the Nampa School District. Data was collected to track the number of times the QR code was accessed. In conclusion, the poster series project was a creative and engaging way for the student leaders to create excitement and increase participation in our Business Professionals of America program. I was inspired by their vision and proud to lead their efforts.
