Socioemotional Wealth As A Mixed Gamble: Revisiting Family Firm R&D Investments With The Behavioral Agency Model, 2014 Melbourne Business School
Socioemotional Wealth As A Mixed Gamble: Revisiting Family Firm R&D Investments With The Behavioral Agency Model, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Dr, Joanna Campbell Dr, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Marianna Makri Dr, David Sirmon Dr, Robert Hoskisson Dr
Geoffrey P Martin
Theoretical explanations for family firm under-investment in R&D relative to non-family firms remain nascent. We revisit this question using a refinement to the behavioral agency model (BAM) – the mixed gamble – that allows us to examine the socioemotional trade-offs that R&D represents for the family firm and how this differentiates their R&D investment decision from non-family firms. We do so in an empirical context where R&D investment is of greatest importance – high technology industries. Moreover, we examine three contingencies that allow us to explore heterogeneity across family firms in their R&D decisions due to their effect ...
The Segmentation Of Innovation: How Digital Design, Rapid Prototyping, And A Sharing Culture Are Changing The Npd Landscape, Sebastian K. Fixson, Tucker J. Marion
Technology, Operations & Information Management Working Papers
A ‘perfect storm’ of digital design, rapid prototyping, and social networking is fundamentally reshaping the new product development (NPD) landscape. Beyond design iteration speed and efficiency, this paradigm shift is affecting the locus of expertise and the form of ownership, which in turn enables achieving new levels of product performance and low cost as well as new forms of collaboration and transactions.
We identify four separate regions in this new NPD landscape, and label them traditional, entrepreneurial, community, and guild. Each NPD region is characterized by its own set of stakeholders and interaction dynamics. To help practicing R&D managers ...

The Persistence Of The Drug Trade In Colombia: The Political, Social, And Economic Dimensions Of New Illicit Business Paradigms In Colombia, Tess Davis
International Political Economy Senior Theses
With the demise of the Colombian cartels in the late 1980s, a new business paradigm has emerged in Colombia and other Latin American countries. Throughout the last several decades, numerous political, social, and economic factors have aided in the emergence and growth of this new illicit venture. Internally, illicit ventures are shaped by the state’s increased dependence on the illicit drug trade, a shift in societal acceptance of the ventures, the nature of Colombian culture, and a lack of opportunity in the legal economy. Externally, these ventures are shaped by increased foreign political pressure from the United States as ...

Financial Literacy And The Success Of Small Businesses: An Observation From A Small Business Development Center, 2014 University of South Florida
Financial Literacy And The Success Of Small Businesses: An Observation From A Small Business Development Center, Pearl Dahmen, Eileen Rodríguez
Small business is the backbone of the U.S. economy; when the financial literacy skills of entrepreneurs fall short of those needed to operate a successful business, it is more than the individual business at risk. In 2012, 14 small businesses requesting growth-acceleration consulting services from the Florida Small Business Development Center at the University of South Florida were assessed financially as part of the service provided by the Center. Financial ratios were used to analyze the business’s financial condition. While performing the financial analysis of these firms, we also surveyed the business owners to determine their level of ...
Organizational Ingenuity And The Paradox Of Embedded Agency: The Case Of The Embryonic Ontario Solar Energy Industry, Kent Walker Dr., Francine Schlosser Dr., David Deephouse Dr.
Odette School of Business Publications
We examine organizational ingenuity within the paradox of embedded agency where organizational stakeholders are constrained in their behaviors by institutions, yet also influence and change these institutions. In this study organizational ingenuity represents the agency component and institutional constraints the embedded component. We build theory about ingenuity from a four-year case study of the embryonic Ontario solar industry. There were two major institutional constraints, limited grid access and political uncertainty. These led to four ingenuity strategies that emerged at different times and levels of analysis that challenged, complied with, or escaped the constraints. We combine these findings to develop a ...
Regional Institutional Development, Political Connections, And Entrepreneurial Performance In China's Transition Economy, Wubiao Zhou
While previous research has emphasized the role of political connections in facilitating entrepreneurial performance in China’ early reform period (1978 – 1999), this study argues that regional institutions had been increasingly conducive to entrepreneurial activities and, thus, also played a key role in China’s entrepreneurial success during that period. The purpose of this study is twofold. First, it aims to demonstrate how regional institutional development facilitated entrepreneurial performance in China. Second, it aims to understand how formal institutional development among Chinese regions affected the role of political connections. Using a two-level hierarchical dataset on Chinese private enterprises, this study finds ...

Smarter Intentions And Authentic Goals (2014 Edition), Connie I. Reimers-Hild
Kimmel Education and Research Center - Faculty & Staff Publications
Intentions influence our actions and behaviors. If intentions are established with awareness, truth, and meaning, they help us experience a life filled with passion and personal fulfillment. Lack of understanding around our true intentions often causes frustration and confusion, which is one reason people oftentimes do not achieve their goals. Many goals are written; however, they are not established with honest intent.
It’s time to get brutally honest about your true intentions so you can achieve authentic goals. Intentions have the power to strengthen your Inner Leader and help you move forward in a meaningful way as long as ...
Savings Account For Microenterprise, 2014 Pace University
Savings Account For Microenterprise, Meghan Jarow
Honors College Theses
Will bundling savings accounts with loans increase the effectiveness of microfinance as a tool for alleviating poverty? Microfinance is the practice of offering small loans to poor people in developing countries. The development of this practice into a poverty dimishining, self-sustaining business won Muhammad Yunus a Nobel Prize in 2006. Today, there are thousands of microfinance institutions (MFIs) serving millions of people in developing countries. However, there is recent evidence that these loans do not help reduce poverty, and may do as much ahrm as good.
In truth providing credit to the poor may not be enough to eliminate poverty ...
Ethics And Market Economic System: A General Review And A Survey, 2014 Walden University
Ethics And Market Economic System: A General Review And A Survey, Reza G. Hamzaee
International Journal of Applied Management and Technology
Recent global recession has motivated this predominantly historical and exploratory research of thoughts and perceptions. A continuous planning of governmental correction of any market failure, such as various types of externalities and information asymmetry, has been strongly recommended by the pioneers of free enterprise systems. Capitalism—in which private ownership of means of production, physical capital, human capital, financial capital, brand-name capital, social capital, land, and mineral deposits are all protected by law without implementation of a series of certain evolving ethical standards and principles—may not continue to be the same efficient system as implied to be by the ...
Internationalising Family Run Business: Overcoming Conflict, Embracing Cohesion And The Role Of Entrepreneurship, 2014 Dublin Institute of Technology
Internationalising Family Run Business: Overcoming Conflict, Embracing Cohesion And The Role Of Entrepreneurship, Marty Reilly, Pamela Sharkey Scott
Family run businesses, despite their importance to both local economies and at a broader national level have traditionally received significantly less attention in business research than either Small to Medium Enterprises (SMES) or new venture business start-ups.
The study proposes to examine the internationalisation of family run businesses with a focus on cohesion, leadership and the role of entrepreneurship, both during and directly thereafter the critical interim of expanding operations across international borders.
Proposing a multiple case study methodology, we intend to explore the practicalities of how family run enterprises expand beyond their national borders and embrace wider, international markets ...
The Nature And Influence Of Relationship On Success In A Virtual Work Environment, 2014 Antioch University
The Nature And Influence Of Relationship On Success In A Virtual Work Environment, Carol Locher Ransone
Dissertations & Theses
The evolution of technology in the 21st century has led to a greater understanding of the benefits and the challenges of expanding work relationships across geographical boundaries. This expansion has contributed to the development of a global society with over three million employee teleworkers (Global Workplace Analytics and the Telework Research Network, 2013). In spite of the advances in connecting across the globe technologically, the importance of successfully working together in a virtual work environment is grounded in relationships that foster individual growth and group cohesion. The human elements of connectivity are primary to the success of organizations as well ...
Economic Gardening: Capacity Building For Stronger Regions, 2014 Southern Cross University
Economic Gardening: Capacity Building For Stronger Regions, Patrice Braun, Jessie Harman, Frank Paton
Journal of Economic and Social Policy
Economic stimulation on the local level is increasingly being recognised as the key to regional resilience. As such, regional capacity building initiatives have moved into endogenous development models that build on the local economic context, embedded competencies and social structures.
Illustrating an endogenous regional development initiative, this paper discusses a recent program in regional Victoria based on ‘economic gardening’ principles of infrastructure, information and connections and tailored to the specific needs of small-to-medium enterprises with high growth potential.
The program brought together three tiers of government and the regional university to increase innovative capacity and performance of manufacturers in the ...
Hip-Hop, Medellín And Social Change, 2013 University of San Francisco
Hip-Hop, Medellín And Social Change, Veronica Henao Posada
This study explores the ways in which the Hip-hop movement is producing social change in Medellín, Colombia. Looking specifically at a Hip-hop school called Cuatro Elementos Skuela, which exists autonomously and with very little state support in the Medellín neighborhood of Aranjuez, I argue that young people are contributing to the reconstruction of the city’s social, cultural and economic fabric. I start by explaining the historical context of Medellín, describing the different sets of conflicts that unleashed high levels of violence and caused the fragmentation of the social, cultural and economic fabric. Moreover, I review the role of the ...
