Object And Relations Uncertainty: Two Components Of Perceived Environmental Uncertainty, Anthony Francolini 2010 University of Western Ontario

Object And Relations Uncertainty: Two Components Of Perceived Environmental Uncertainty, Anthony Francolini

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

I contend that perceived environmental uncertainty should be divided into a new pair of uncertainty components, which I label object and relations uncertainty. Object uncertainty is defined as an actor’s inability to predict the future accurately due to a lack of information about object items (i.e., tangible, reducible, asocial items). Relations uncertainty is defined as an actor’s inability to predict the future accurately due to a lack of information about relations items (abstract, reduction-resistant, social items).

I contend that the object-relations uncertainty component-set is supported by uncertainty research and categorization theory. First, these two components are supported ...

An Analysis Of Australian Exchange Traded Options And Warrants, Will Bertin, Paul Fowler, David Michayluk, Laurie Prather 2010 Bond University

An Analysis Of Australian Exchange Traded Options And Warrants, Will Bertin, Paul Fowler, David Michayluk, Laurie Prather

Laurie Prather

This study focuses on the price discovery process in Australian option and warrant markets. Characterizing these two markets in terms of their cost structures and institutional features, we formally test competing price discovery hypotheses. The general findings indicate that the warrants market is the dominant market suggesting that their lower trading cost outweigh their less attractive institutional features. Additionally, we find that idiosyncratic differences among firms may result in a clientele effect thus providing justification for the coexistence of these seemingly redundant markets.

How Employees With Different National Identities Experience A Geocentric Organizational Culture Of A Global Corporation: A Phenomenological Study, Maria S. Plakhotnik 2010 Florida International University

How Employees With Different National Identities Experience A Geocentric Organizational Culture Of A Global Corporation: A Phenomenological Study, Maria S. Plakhotnik

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

A global corporation values both profitability and social acceptance; its units mutually negotiate governance and represent a highly interdependent network where centers of excellence and high-potential employees are identified regardless of geographic locations. These companies try to build geocentric, or “world oriented” (Marquardt, 1999, p. 20), organizational cultures. Such culture “transcends cultural differences and establishes ‘beacons’ – values and attitudes – that are comprehensive and compelling” (Kets de Vries & Florent-Treacy, 2002, p. 299) for all employees, regardless of their national origins. Creating a geocentric organizational culture involves transforming each employee’s mindset, beliefs, and behaviors so that he/she can become “a ...

Emphasizing Foreign Language Use To International Marketing Students: A Situational Exercise That Mimics Real-World Challenges, Tracy L. Melin, Nina M. Ray 2010 Boise State University

Emphasizing Foreign Language Use To International Marketing Students: A Situational Exercise That Mimics Real-World Challenges, Tracy L. Melin, Nina M. Ray

Nina M. Ray

An international marketing exercise consists of students orally providing an introduction in a chosen foreign language of what they, as potential salespeople, might say to a client in that country. Students speak (not read) their prepared statements to the class and are leniently, yet constructively, evaluated on language use and pronunciation and marketing credibility. The objective is to emulate a real business situation and to show students the challenges of working with different languages and cultures in international marketing and the imperfections of direct translation. Results of a student survey showed that a majority of students believed the exercise to ...
