Many companies seem reluctant to carry out sufficient market entry analysis, he says, despite the policy changes now taking place in the world’s tenth largest economy.

Inclusive Business: Using For-Profit Business Models To Address Global Poverty, 2013 Liberty University
Inclusive Business: Using For-Profit Business Models To Address Global Poverty, Samuel James Conner
Senior Honors Papers
Due to the rise of globalization, modernization, and the Internet revolution, awareness of global poverty has expanded, making its eradication a chief goal of the global development community for the twenty-first century. Though corporations are often expected to participate in social and community development initiatives without regard for profits, this paper presents inclusive business as a way for businesses to profitably engage impoverished segments of society. Inclusive businesses seek to expand their consumer bases or strengthen their supply chains by moving into new markets among the poor that have limited access to global markets and remain largely untapped. The research ...

The Use Of Twitter By Luxury And Midscale Hotels, 2013 University of New Hampshire
The Use Of Twitter By Luxury And Midscale Hotels, Yolanda M. Tselepidakis
Twitter has demanded a presence in company brands since its start up in 2008, including the hotel industry. As an up and coming marketing tool, the social media website is still new to both hotels and their guests. Observing the different strategies incorporated by luxury and midscale hotels, the paper provides explanations on how these two segments differ in utilizing Twitter. Through direct interviews with US luxury and midscale hotels and analyzing individual Twitter feeds, it was found that luxury hotels and their target market are much more active on Twitter than the midscale hotel segment. Implications suggest that although ...

The Rise And Fall Of Bread In America, 2013 Johnson & Wales University
The Rise And Fall Of Bread In America, Amanda Benson
Academic Symposium of Undergraduate Scholarship
Over the last century bread has gone through cycles of acceptance and popularity in the United States. The pressure exerted on the American bread market by manufacturers’ advertising campaigns and various dietary trends has caused it to go through periods of acceptance and rejection. Before the industrialization of bread making, consumers held few negative views on bread and perceived it primarily as a form of sustenance. After its industrialization, the battle between the manufacturers and the neighborhood bakeries over consumers began. With manufacturers, such as Wonder Bread, trying to maximize profits and dominate the market, corporate leaders aimed to discourage ...
The Wires Go To War: The U.S. Experiment With Government Ownership Of The Telephone System During World War I, 2013 University of Pennsylvania Law School
The Wires Go To War: The U.S. Experiment With Government Ownership Of The Telephone System During World War I, Michael A. Janson, Christopher S. Yoo
One of the most distinctive characteristics of the U.S. telephone system is that it has always been privately owned, in stark contrast to the pattern of government ownership followed by virtually every other nation. What is not widely known is how close the United States came to falling in line with the rest of the world. For the one-year period following July 31, 1918, the exigencies of World War I led the federal government to take over the U.S. telephone system. A close examination of this episode sheds new light into a number of current policy issues. The ...
Development Of A Model Of Airline Consumer Satisfaction, 2013 Purdue University
Development Of A Model Of Airline Consumer Satisfaction, Erin E. Bowen, Brent D. Bowen, Dean E. Headley
Aviation Technology Faculty and Staff Publications
Previous research on perceptions, satisfaction, and attitudes regarding the major commercial air carriers in the United States has provided little more than an interesting descriptive “snapshot” of the average air traveler. Building upon 20 years of work with the National Airline Quality Rating, the present study attempts to move beyond basic descriptive information of air travelers to identify attitudinal patterns and relationships in the way consumers at varying levels of travel frequency view the commercial air industry. Development of such a model allows key players the ability to improve their understanding of the prime drivers and perceptions of passenger behavior ...
A Study Of Facility Management Knowledge Classification For The Effective Stewardship Of Existing Buildings, 2013 Edith Cowan University
A Study Of Facility Management Knowledge Classification For The Effective Stewardship Of Existing Buildings, Robert G. Doleman
Theses: Doctorates and Masters
The aim of the study was to establish the Facility Management knowledge categories within the life cycle of a building context. The significance of the study stemmed from research undertaken into the compliance to Australian Standards 1851-17:2005 Maintenance of Fire and Smoke Doors within West Australian nursing homes, which demonstrated 87 per cent non-compliance. The level of non-compliance appeared to identify a lack of knowledge, and appropriately qualified and experienced personnel involved within the management of nursing homes (Doleman, 2008). The issues identified prompted the question on how facility management knowledge categories evolves and develops throughout the life cycle ...

Supporting Innovation In Regional Australia – Perceptions From Regional And Urban Innovators, Peter Vitartas, Susan Kinnear, Kate Charters
Journal of Economic and Social Policy
Globally, innovation is recognised as a key pathway to productivity, sustainability and effectiveness in both the public and private sector. In order for Australia to remain internationally competitive, all areas of the economy need to be actively involved in innovation. This is especially true in regional Australia, given that regions are major contributors to national productivity.
It is critically important that innovation policy and programming are developed based on a strong evidence base. Despite this, there is a paucity of research reporting on the levels of innovation in regional Australia, and few accounts of the experiential knowledge regarding what support ...

The Pros And Cons Of Outsourcing, Angela Smith
UNLV Theses/Dissertations/Professional Papers/Capstones
Outsourcing has become increasingly popular to the public since the mid-20th century and has become more controversial in the last decade. The United States economy has been under the microscope for the last 4 years due to an economic recession. Outsourcing has been a subject of interest that has been brought up numerous times by economists. Offshore outsourcing is the main type of outsourcing that is of concern in relation to the United States economy. This topic is highly debated because of the unemployment rate in America.
