Complexity Theory For A New Managerial Paradigm: A Research Framework, Gandolfo Dominici, Vasja Roblek 2016 University of Palermo

Complexity Theory For A New Managerial Paradigm: A Research Framework, Gandolfo Dominici, Vasja Roblek

Vasja Roblek

In this work, we have outlined a research framework for a new management paradigm, attempting trying to link the main concepts of complexity theory, change management, knowledge management, sustainable development and, cybernetics. We discussed the transition from the industrial era to the post industrial age. In the development process, nothing is fixed in advance; we can say that it is opportunistic, and adapts to the challenges of the environment, as well as to their effects for and within organizations and society. We saw how the processes of organizational change have occurred as a result of the move to adapt to ...


Family Control, Socioemotional Wealth And Earnings Management In Publicly Traded Firms, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Joanna Campbell Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof 2015 Melbourne Business School

Family Control, Socioemotional Wealth And Earnings Management In Publicly Traded Firms, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Joanna Campbell Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof

Geoffrey P Martin

We examine the unique nature of agency problems within publicly traded family firms by investigating the earnings management decision of dominant family owners relative to non-family. To do so, we draw upon literature demonstrating that family owners are loss averse with respect to the family’s socioemotional wealth (SEW), or the affective endowment derived from firm ownership and control. Our theory and findings suggest that potential reputational consequences of earnings management lead family principals to engage in less of this practice relative to non-family firms, and that founder family firms are less likely than non-founder family firms to use earnings ...


Csr Activity Of Tobacco Companies In Indonesia: Is It A Genuine Social Responsibility?, Harsman Tandilittin, Christoph Luetge 2015 Technical University of Munich

Csr Activity Of Tobacco Companies In Indonesia: Is It A Genuine Social Responsibility?, Harsman Tandilittin, Christoph Luetge

Online Journal of Health Ethics

The adoption of corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs in the tobacco industry has sparked a contentious debate in the international community. Tobacco industry’s CSR activities are honored by the government and Indonesian community with CSR awards due to their positive contributions. To assess the CSR activities of the tobacco companies and whether they are genuine forms of social responsibility or business motivation, we have collected the CSR activities and compared them with the negative impact of the tobacco industry in Indonesia. The CSR activities are in no way related to the negative impacts of tobacco in Indonesia. Therefore, CSR ...


Gustavo GutiéRrez – Liberation Theology & Marxism, Todd Cameron Swathwood Jr 2015 Liberty University

Gustavo GutiéRrez – Liberation Theology & Marxism, Todd Cameron Swathwood Jr

The Kabod

Since 1968, liberation theology has emerged as a prominent feature of religion and politics, particularly in South America. Originally stemming from the writings of Peruvian priest Gustavo Gutiérrez, this at-once theological and overtly political ideology decries the institutionalized violence of the world’s capitalist society on the poor and oppressed, and argues that God is particularly concerned with the plight of the suffering masses. Christians should therefore make assistance of these poor souls their highest priority, and advocate for any and all methods of alleviating suffering, especially those that work from the premise that society must be toppled and ...


Of Property And Information, Abraham Bell, Gideon Parchomovsky 2015 University of San Diego

Of Property And Information, Abraham Bell, Gideon Parchomovsky

Faculty Scholarship

The property-information interface is perhaps the most crucial and under-theorized dimension of property law. Information about property can make or break property rights. Information about assets and property rights can dramatically enhance the value of ownership. Conversely, dearth of information can significantly reduce the benefit associated with ownership. It is surprising, therefore, that contemporary property theorists do not engage in sustained analysis of the property-information interface and in particular of registries — the repositories of information about property.

Once, things were different. In the past, discussions of registries used to be a core topic in property classes and a focal point ...

The Moderating Effect Of Third-Party Assurance On The Relationship Between Csr Disclosure And Investor Judgments, Leila Emily Hickman, Bernard Wong-On-Wing 2015 Washington State University

The Moderating Effect Of Third-Party Assurance On The Relationship Between Csr Disclosure And Investor Judgments, Leila Emily Hickman, Bernard Wong-On-Wing

Academic Conference on Good Business

Abstract:

Using a survey-based experiment, we investigate whether corporate social responsibility (CSR) disclosures can influence perceptions of corporate reputation and if these perceptions affect investors’ assessment of firms as attractive investments. After viewing CSR disclosures, participants were asked how they perceived the subject firm as a potential investment, and also how they assessed the firm’s reputation. Specifically, the subject firm’s CSR disclosure was manipulated to include either all-positive performance information or mixed information reporting that some CSR goals are not being achieved. A second manipulation divided disclosures into those that were based on information assured by a third-party ...

Csr Communication In Kitakyushu, Japan: Multiple Case Study, Kaori Takano 2015 Fort Lewis College

Csr Communication In Kitakyushu, Japan: Multiple Case Study, Kaori Takano

Academic Conference on Good Business

The city of Kitakyushu is located in Fukuoka prefecture, southwestern Japan. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) designated it as one of the four “Green growth” model cities in the world. The city experienced industrial pollution in the 1960s, however, it currently enjoys a reputation for having successful environmental approaches. Because of this significant history, the author speculates that the Kitakyushu business community continues to be vigilant about socially responsible practices and their CSR communication with stakeholders may be more advanced compared to other businesses in Japan.

This multiple case study utilized two traditional data: Interviews and documents ...


The Impact Of Formal And Informal Institutional Distances On Mne Corporate Social Performance, Dawn L. Keig, Victor B. Marshall, Lance Eliot Brouthers 2015 Whitworth University

The Impact Of Formal And Informal Institutional Distances On Mne Corporate Social Performance, Dawn L. Keig, Victor B. Marshall, Lance Eliot Brouthers

Academic Conference on Good Business

Does country selection affect the corporate social performance (CSP) of multinational enterprises (MNEs)? In this study we suggest that greater institutional diversity within an MNE’s operating environment may adversely affect its ability to maintain higher levels of CSP. Using institutional distance and organizational learning as our theoretical lenses, we investigate the impact of institutional differences on CSP. We conceptualize the MNE as a unique portfolio of locations and use the MNE’s entire operating footprint to explore the effects of average portfolio formal and informal institutional distances on CSP. We hypothesize and find that firms with greater average informal ...


Corporate Philanthropic Disaster Response In The Eyes Of A Filipino Entrepreneur, Andrea Santiago, Fernando Roxas 2015 De La Salle University

Corporate Philanthropic Disaster Response In The Eyes Of A Filipino Entrepreneur, Andrea Santiago, Fernando Roxas

Academic Conference on Good Business

Catastrophic disasters have become more frequent and demand more resources yet corporate disaster response is not part of the mainstream corporate social responsibility activities of an organization. As such, disaster response is ad-hoc and unorganized. For greater effectiveness, organizations are called upon to share their core competencies in a more coordinated manner. However, to do this, corporate boards should be morally convinced to participate in such endeavors.

Self-Promotion No Longer Leaves A Bad Taste: Ajinomoto’S Csr Activity In Japanese Schools, Kaori Takano 2015 Fort Lewis College

Self-Promotion No Longer Leaves A Bad Taste: Ajinomoto’S Csr Activity In Japanese Schools, Kaori Takano

Academic Conference on Good Business

Generally Japanese society does not value or encourage self-promotion. Therefore, Japanese corporations are generally quiet about corporate social responsibility (CSR). One Japanese multinational manufacturer of seasoning, Ajinomoto, does not fall into this category. Unlike the majority of the Japanese business community, Ajinomoto trumpets their CSR in the public sector. The top Japanese corporations normally choose not to pronounce their CSR, believing that it is not necessary to highlight their CSR activities if the company is basically doing what is considered the “right thing” for society. For this reason, Ajinomoto was selected for study because the case is unusual from cultural ...


A Market For Vice: An Exploration Of Strategic Irresponsibility, Oscar J. Stewart 2015 University of North Carolina at Charlotte

A Market For Vice: An Exploration Of Strategic Irresponsibility, Oscar J. Stewart

Academic Conference on Good Business

Organizational scholarship has assumed that corporate irresponsibility (CI) is largely detrimental to corporate financial performance. Alternatively, CI may sometimes work in firms’ favor, though at the expense of stakeholders. Exploring this reality, I argue that many firms engage in strategic CI because there are short-term financial benefits or at least no clear financial payoffs for behaving otherwise. I critique the literature on CI and conceptualize the construct as more then corporate illegality and distinct from both corporate policy and low CSR. I then explain the proliferation of strategic CI as a strategy that firms employ toward competitive advantage. Importantly, CI ...

Sustainability Reporting Practices Of Group Iii U.S. Air Carriers, Lukas Rudari, Mary E. Johnson

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Once a side note, sustainability reporting has become an important issue for companies and airlines globally and in the U.S. This exploratory study examined the sustainability reporting practices of U.S. passenger and cargo air carriers with total revenues exceeding $1 billion classified as Group III air carriers by the U.S Department of Transportation. The results showed that 53% of Group III air carriers published sustainability reports. Out of these 53%, all except one referenced the Global Reporting framework in their sustainability reports. Forty percent or 6 out of 15 carriers participated in at least one Carbon Disclosure ...
