Why Can't We Wait (To Spend) And The Law Of Unintended Consequences: Potential Negative Impact On Minority Employees From Well-Intentioned Organizational Compensation Practices, James R. Jones 2016 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Why Can't We Wait (To Spend) And The Law Of Unintended Consequences: Potential Negative Impact On Minority Employees From Well-Intentioned Organizational Compensation Practices, James R. Jones

James Jones

In this time of increasing uncertainty about business viability and stability, many organizations are looking to gain control of their "bottom line" by strengthening the link between organizational outcomes and employee rewards. Long gone are the days of steadily and automatically increasing worker salaries as a hoped-for method of expanding productivity. Indeed, there is a school of thought that suggests that automatic pay increases act as a "demotivator" for many individuals. The more common approach currently is to utilize incentives (i.e., additional compensation/rewards given for performance beyond normal expectations) as a way of enhancing employee work motivation, thereby ...


An Application Of Bootstrapping For Determining A Decision Rule For Site Location, Paul P. Biemer, Sheryl E. Kimes 2016 New Mexico State University, Las Cruces

An Application Of Bootstrapping For Determining A Decision Rule For Site Location, Paul P. Biemer, Sheryl E. Kimes

Sheryl E. Kimes

This article provides a general methodology for determining and evaluating a decision rule for hotel site location. Given (a) an indicator of hotel success, (b) an ideal decision rule based on this indicator if it were known without error, and (c) a model for predicting the value of the success indicator at a proposed site, we propose a procedure for finding the optimal model-based decision rule for any specified optimality criterion and for evaluating the worth of the rule. The methodology is based on the statistical technique called bootstrapping. This method reduces the bias of conventional methods of estimation that ...


Agriculture And Water Quality Improvement, Lee A. Christensen, John A. Miranowski 2016 Iowa State University

Agriculture And Water Quality Improvement, Lee A. Christensen, John A. Miranowski

John Miranowski

The symposium "Agricultural and Water Quality Improvements; What are the Implementation Costs and Policy Issues?" was organized to establish what is known and to identify additional research needs. The major impetus for action on agricultural nonpoint source pollution problems comes from Section 208 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Amendments of 1972 and the Rural Clean Water Program. Public programs involving large expenditures from both public and private sources are being implemented and require economic research and analysis...

Major elements of a movie to be examined will be pulled from both creator and viewer sides of the experience.


How Competition, Customization, And Niche Markets Have Affected Sku Proliferation And Management, Alexander Eugene Huggs 2016 University of South Carolina - Columbia

How Competition, Customization, And Niche Markets Have Affected Sku Proliferation And Management, Alexander Eugene Huggs

Theses and Dissertations

Differentiation has become a major competitive advantage. The end result is that many companies and businesses have found a competitive advantage by offering a wide variety of products. While Henry Ford may have only had to keep up with a limited number of parts for his relatively standard Model T, the Ford Motor Company now sells sixteen different models of consumer vehicles. This has not only happened to the Ford Motor Company. Growth in the number of stock keeping units (SKUs) is present across most consumer goods. What has caused this explosion in SKUs, how have companies adapted warehouses and ...


Digital Counterfeiting: States Regulation Of Federal, Foreign & Digital, Ralph E. McKinney, Lawrence P. Shao, Dale H. Shao, Dale C. Rosenblieb Jr. 2016 Marshall University

Digital Counterfeiting: States Regulation Of Federal, Foreign & Digital, Ralph E. Mckinney, Lawrence P. Shao, Dale H. Shao, Dale C. Rosenblieb Jr.

Ralph E. McKinney

The relatively recent appearance of Internet-based transactions necessitated the develop of digital forms of payment. These payments have evolved into various forms, including digital currency. This paper discusses the regulatory authority and/or lack of authority, of the sovereign States of the United States to regulate the counterfeiting of financial instruments used as currency, including digital currency. Federal and Foreign (non-U.S.) currencies are explicitly examined. Some digital currencies are not regulated or authorized specifically by a government. Can a currency without formal codification from a government be regulated by a State? As financial transactions have shifted historically from various ...

Integrating Commercial Ambulatory Electronic Health Records With Hospital Systems: An Evolutionary Process., Susan A. Sherer, Chad D. Meyerhoefer, Michael Sheinberg Md, Donald Levick Md

Donald Levick MD

OBJECTIVE: The increase in electronic health record implementation in all treatment venues has led to greater demands for integration within and across practice settings with different work cultures. We study the evolution of coordination processes when integrating ambulatory-specific electronic health records with hospital systems.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: Longitudinal qualitative study using semi-structured interviews and archival documentation throughout a 5-year implementation and integration of obstetrical ambulatory and hospital records with a goal of achieving a perinatal continuum of care.

RESULTS: As users implement and integrate electronic health records, there is an evolution in their focus from technology acceptance to structural adaptation ...


Multi-Level Analytic Network Process Model To Mitigate Supply Chain Disruptions In Disaster Recovery Planning, Martina Ursula Kroener 2016 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Multi-Level Analytic Network Process Model To Mitigate Supply Chain Disruptions In Disaster Recovery Planning, Martina Ursula Kroener

Master's Theses and Project Reports

Over the past few decades, environmental changes have led to more frequent occurrences and greater intensities of natural disasters worldwide. In terms of globally connected supply chains, this has resulted in an enormous economical loss for corporations. Therefore, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) planning and management has become essential for businesses in order to protect their critical business flow. Yet there is a lack of systematic and transparent methodologies for companies to handle this problem.

Hence, this thesis introduces a novel approach to combine consecutive steps of the Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP) process within one application. The multi-criteria ...


A Life-Cycle Perspective Of Professionalism In Services, Benjamin Lawrence, Jie J. Zhang, Janelle Heineke 2016 University of Vermont

A Life-Cycle Perspective Of Professionalism In Services, Benjamin Lawrence, Jie J. Zhang, Janelle Heineke

Benjamin Lawrence

In this article, we develop a professional service life cycle model to describe the changes in professional work over time. We explore the drivers of these changes through an in-depth longitudinal case study of one specific professional service – Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) consulting. We focus on understanding the evolutionary path of LEED consulting work as a result of its knowledge base, community and response to market and technological forces. Case evidence demonstrates an inherent tension between innovation and commodification resulting from multiple demands through various developmental stages. The life cycle model has important implications for value-creation in professional ...


Effects Of Team Cognition And Constraint On New Product Ideation, Tanawat Hirunyawipada, Audhesh Paswan 2016 University of Dayton

Effects Of Team Cognition And Constraint On New Product Ideation, Tanawat Hirunyawipada, Audhesh Paswan

Tanawat Hirunyawipada

Idea generation is a critical activity in new product development. This study investigates the effects of ideation team's cognitive depth (specialization) and breadth (diverse expertise) as well as goal constraint on the generation of new product ideas. Focusing on the determinants of new product idea development helps articulate the mechanisms to generate more useful and novel product ideas. The findings indicate that specialization and diverse expertise affect idea novelty directly, albeit differently. Goal constraint helps enhance the usefulness dimension of new product ideas, but has little effect on the newness dimension of the ideas. Finally, goal constraint helps harness ...


Individuals Approaching Retirement Have Options (Literally) To Secure A Comfortable Retirement, Bryan Foltice 2016 Butler University

Individuals Approaching Retirement Have Options (Literally) To Secure A Comfortable Retirement, Bryan Foltice

Bryan Foltice

This article examines the critical final five-year period leading up to retirement and analyzes whether traditional asset-allocation strategies effectively and consistently assist individuals in reaching their retirement income goals as they approach retirement. These traditional strategies are evaluated against alternative, option-based investment strategies that assure a certain amount of retirement income, after adjusting for inflation, while maximizing stock participation with the remaining funds in the portfolio through the use of options. In this simulation, we find higher overall expected yields in the traditional investment strategies over the evaluated five-year period. However, after applying a constant relative risk aversion (CRRA) coefficient ...


In Equations We Trust? Formula Learning Effects On The Exponential Growth Bias, Bryan Foltice, Thomas Langer 2016 Butler University

In Equations We Trust? Formula Learning Effects On The Exponential Growth Bias, Bryan Foltice, Thomas Langer

Bryan Foltice

This paper evaluates the possible benefits and drawbacks of the formal formula learning of compound growth as it pertains to eliminating, or at least reducing, the exponential growth bias in various household savings and debt decisions. In our main experimental study, we determine if the ability to calculate the simple compound savings formula only assists in its direct area of application with an available calculator, or if this knowledge extends into similar exponentially-based savings and debt decisions when either a calculator is prohibited or when the formula is unknown. In the process of tackling this research question, we develop a ...


Profitable Momentum Trading Strategies For Individual Investors, Bryan Foltice, Thomas Langer 2016 Butler University

Profitable Momentum Trading Strategies For Individual Investors, Bryan Foltice, Thomas Langer

Bryan Foltice

For nearly three decades, scientific studies have explored momentum investing strategies and observed stable excess returns in various financial markets. However, the trading strategies typically analyzed in such research are not accessible to individual investors due to short selling constraints, nor are they profitable due to high trading costs. Incorporating these constraints, we explore a simplified momentum trading strategy that only exploits excess returns from topside momentum for a small number of individual stocks. Building on US data from the New York Stock Exchange from July 1991 to December 2010, we analyze whether such a simplified momentum strategy outperforms the ...


Gender Effects On Perceptions Of Individual And Corporate Social Responsibility, Courtney Droms Hatch, Sheryl-Ann Stephen 2016 Butler University

Gender Effects On Perceptions Of Individual And Corporate Social Responsibility, Courtney Droms Hatch, Sheryl-Ann Stephen

Courtney M. Droms

There has been an increasing importance for both individuals and companies on acting in a socially responsible manner. This study demonstrates that gender plays an important role in perceptions of social responsibility, such that the effect of an individual’s social responsibility on their perceptions of a company’s social responsibility is moderated by the gender of the respondent. Specifically, we find that women have higher levels of Internalized Moral Identity than men. Moreover, we find that women believe that organizations should be more beneficial to society than men, which translates into a higher quality of corporate social responsibility. The ...

The Impact Of Board Structure On Ipo Underpricing, Steven Dolvin, Jack Kirby 2016 Butler University

The Impact Of Board Structure On Ipo Underpricing, Steven Dolvin, Jack Kirby

Steven D. Dolvin

Prior research has examined the impact of board structure on firm performance and found that characteristics such as board size affect both operating and stock price performance. Existing research has concentrated primarily on performance in periods well removed from a firm’s initial public offering (IPO), and relatively little research has examined the impact of board structure on the stock price performance of IPOs, particularly with regard to characteristics other than board size. This study fills this gap, finding that the key board characteristic is the percentage external directors on the board. The authors find that the greater the percentage ...


Banks_Expected_Equity_To_Asset_Ratio_Bounds_Under_Foreign_Exchange_Risk.Pdf, Martin Egozcue, Luis Fuentes García 2016 Universidad de la Republica Oriental del Uruguay

Banks_Expected_Equity_To_Asset_Ratio_Bounds_Under_Foreign_Exchange_Risk.Pdf, Martin Egozcue, Luis Fuentes García

Martin Egozcue

In this paper, we develop optimal bounds of the expectation equity-to-asset ratio
when the bank faces foreign exchange shocks. These bounds can be established with
limited information on the underlying stochastic foreign exchange rate. Specifically,
we are interested in finding the highest lower bound on the expectation of this ratio,
as it indicates the worst case scenario of a bank’s net worth. Comparative statics
of these bounds, when the moments of the foreign exchange rate distribution vary,
are studied as well. We characterize the conditions under which the expected equity
ratio remains unchanged by foreign exchange rate movements.We ...


Macroconstants Of Development: A New Benchmark For The Strategic Development Of Advanced Countries And Firms, Andrey Bystrov, Vyacheslav Yusim, Tamilla Curtis 2016 Plekhanov Russian Academy of Economics

Macroconstants Of Development: A New Benchmark For The Strategic Development Of Advanced Countries And Firms, Andrey Bystrov, Vyacheslav Yusim, Tamilla Curtis

Dr. Tamilla Curtis

This research proposed a new indicator of countries’ development called “macroconstants of development”. The literature review indicates that the concept of "macroconstants of development" is not used at the moment in neither the theory nor the practice of industrial policy. Research of longitudinal data of total GDP, GDP per capita and their derivatives for most countries of the world was conducted. An analysis of statistical information has been done by employing econometric analyses.

Based on the analysis of the statistical data, which characterizes the development of large, technologically advanced countries in ordinary conditions, it was identified that the average acceleration ...
