Using Amazon Mechanical Turk And Other Compensated Crowd Sourcing Sites, Gordon B. Schmidt, William Jettinghoff 2016 Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne

Using Amazon Mechanical Turk And Other Compensated Crowd Sourcing Sites, Gordon B. Schmidt, William Jettinghoff

Organizational Leadership and Supervision Faculty Publications

Crowdsourcing is becoming recognized as a powerful tool that organizations can use in order to get work done, this by freelancers and non-employees. We conceptualize crowdsourcing as a subcategory of outsourcing, with compensated crowdsourcing representing situations in which individuals performing the work receive some sort of payment for accomplishing the organization’s tasks. Herein, we discuss how sites that create a crowd, such as Amazon Mechanical Turk, can be powerful tools for business purposes. We highlight the general features of crowdsourcing sites, offering examples drawn from current crowdsourcing sites. We then examine the wide range of tasks that can be ...

Benchmarking, Brokering, And Branding: Resources For Success Across Sectors, Maureen Scully, Lisa Deangelis, Katie Bates

Emerging Leaders Program Team Projects

The fellows in the Center for Collaborative Leadership's Emerging Leaders Program practice collaborative leadership skills by working together in peer-led teams on projects that involve multiple stakeholders and have a civic impact.

Animal Farm, Baby Boom And Crackberry Addicts, Gayle Porter, Jamie Perry 2016 Rutgers University

Animal Farm, Baby Boom And Crackberry Addicts, Gayle Porter, Jamie Perry

Jamie Perry

[Excerpt] In this chapter, we draw from both popular media and research support, along with anecdotal examples drawn from conversations accumulated as part of our own prior studies. Our goal is to present reminders that working hours are a personal life choice, even with external demands, but a choice that is influenced by elements of the individual’s working situation. The implications of a choice for long working hours are shown through use of two past “hard working” icons from popular media, one from the 1940s and one from the 1980s. Discussion continues into current time with an overview highlighting ...


Engaging Race And Power In Higher Education Organizations Through A Critical Race Institutional Logics Perspective, Dian Squire 2016 University of Denver

Engaging Race And Power In Higher Education Organizations Through A Critical Race Institutional Logics Perspective, Dian Squire

Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs

Engaging today’s issues in higher education requires strong analytical tools that can address the complex nature of our institutional systems and their involved actors. This paper forwards a critical race institutional logics perspective (CRILP). CRILP examines both organizations as they are embedded in a neoliberal and racist society and actor identity, agency, decision-making, and their relation to power. It is important to centralize actor-level racial identity and intersecting identities as race and racism are still pervasive in today’s society. Additionally, the current state of higher education as a market-driven entity leads to thinking about the ways that neoliberalism ...


Exploring Dimensions Of Teachers’ Ocb From Stakeholder’S Perspective: A Study In India, Musarrat Shaheen, Ritu Gupta Dr., Y.L.N Kumar Dr. 2016 IFHE University, IBS Hyderabad

Exploring Dimensions Of Teachers’ Ocb From Stakeholder’S Perspective: A Study In India, Musarrat Shaheen, Ritu Gupta Dr., Y.L.N Kumar Dr.

The Qualitative Report

Parents are real beneficiaries of school services. Their involvement in school based activities has changed the role breadth of teachers. Schools can handle this parental involvement through the extra-role behaviors of teachers. These beyond the job behaviors or organizational citizenship behaviors (OCB) of teachers are crucial for the schools. Despite the prescribed roles and duties, the schools cannot predict and infer through formally stated in-role job description, the entire range of extra-role behavior exhibited by teachers during and after school. In this study, teacher’s role breadth is examined under the broad spectrum of Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) which resulted ...

The Documentality Of Ethics – Codes Of Library Ethics As Support Of Professional Practice, Joacim Hansson

Proceedings from the Document Academy

This study analyzes codes of ethics, seen as documents, and their role in supporting the professional practice of librarianship. Theoretically it is placed within the scholarly discussion on the role and function of documents in various practices. Specific interest is directed towards the concept of ”performative documentality”. Empirically, the analysis is concentrated on one example, the Code of Ethics of the American Library Association (ALA). Both the immediate pre-history of this code, and its subsequent editions are described and analyzed in relation to the given theoretical position. Results show that the development ALA code of ethics corresponds to the ideas ...

Perceptions Of Workplace Incivility And Employee Well-Being: The Moderating Role Of Emotional Resilience, David Mcguire, Indravidoushi Dusoye, Gillian Mauchline, Sudhir Saha, Marie-Line Germain

Marie-Line Germain, Ph.D.

In recent years, the harmful effects of negative employee interactions in the workplace has been of increasing concern to HR professionals. With studies suggesting that one in four UK employees experiences bullying and harassment (Samaritans, 2009), considerable attention has focused on identifying and eradicating deviant behaviours within work environments (...)


Positioning The Beneficiary: The Role Of Entwinement In Social Enterprise Impact And Performance Management, Elena Dowin Kennedy 2016 University of Massachusetts Boston

Positioning The Beneficiary: The Role Of Entwinement In Social Enterprise Impact And Performance Management, Elena Dowin Kennedy

Graduate Doctoral Dissertations

This dissertation extends and contributes to the extant literature on social enterprise by examining the enterprise-beneficiary relationship in social enterprises with particular focus on performance measurement and social value creation. Ironically, while social missions and commitment to beneficiaries is what distinguishes social entrepreneurship from traditional entrepreneurship, little research has been conducted to examine this relationship. Utilizing a portfolio of 101 social enterprises based in New England, this study consisted of two phases: the development of a typology of social enterprise based on the enterprise–beneficiary relationships present in the portfolio, and a comparative case study closely examining six cases of ...


How Social Media Can Impact The Organizational Political Process, Gordon B. Schmidt 2016 Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne

How Social Media Can Impact The Organizational Political Process, Gordon B. Schmidt

Organizational Leadership and Supervision Faculty Publications

The world of work is a political arena. Managers, employees and organizational groups vie for power and influence within organizations in both formal and informal settings for personal and organizational benefit (Ferris et al., 1989; Drory and Vigoda-Gadot, 2010; Vigoda-Gadot and Drory, 2006). A significant body of work has looked into how to understand how organizational politics processes take place and how they impact organizations. While we have learned much about how organizational politics unfold in organizations, to date little attention has been given to the impact of changing technologies on the organizational political process, with the exception of work ...
