Leadership Programs For Women In Higher Education, Susan R. Madsen, Karen A. Longman, Jessica Daniels 2012 Utah Valley University

Leadership Programs For Women In Higher Education, Susan R. Madsen, Karen A. Longman, Jessica Daniels

Susan R. Madsen

The purpose of this abstract is to propose an AHRD conference symposium that will focus on leadership programs for women in higher education. This would be the first of four presentations, and will set the stage for a symposium that would be based on articles that will be published in a February 2012 Special Issue of Advances. I have discussed this with the Editor-in-Chief of Advances and the 2012 AHRD Conference Program Chair and received approval for this submission.


User Innovation And Knowledge Sourcing: The Case Of Financial Software, Polavarapu M. Rao, Jongtae Shin, Hyun Shin 2012 Long Island University

User Innovation And Knowledge Sourcing: The Case Of Financial Software, Polavarapu M. Rao, Jongtae Shin, Hyun Shin

Faculty of Marketing & International Business Publications

According to user innovation literature, users can create important innovations and the novel functionalities embedded in those user innovations often become the sources of subsequent innovations by both other users and manufacturers. However, manufacturers are often hesitant in commercializing an innovation created by a single user due to the uncertainty around the market demands. We propose that such hesitancy will decrease when an increasing number of other users source knowledge elements from the focal user innovation and reproduce the novel functionality. Once the focal user innovation is commercialized by manufacturers, other users can purchase the novel functionality from the market ...


Assessment Of The Usage Of The National Geographic Greater Yellowstone Mapguide , Christine Oschell, Norma P. Nickerson 2012 The University of Montana-Missoula

Assessment Of The Usage Of The National Geographic Greater Yellowstone Mapguide , Christine Oschell, Norma P. Nickerson

Institute for Tourism and Recreation Research Publications

This report examines the uses of the Greater Yellowstone MapGuide (both the printed and website versions) and how this tool has influenced those who use it. The Greater Yellowstone MapGuide appears to be a tool that is influencing visitors to the area in many ways. The MapGuide appears to influence where they stay, where they drive, and the activities in which they participate. The findings of this study suggest that the Geotourism concept, as portrayed by the MapGuide, is a successful tool in visitor management.

Direct Democracy And State Fiscal Crises: The Problem Of Too Much Law, Peter Conti-Brown 2012 University of Pennsylvania

Direct Democracy And State Fiscal Crises: The Problem Of Too Much Law, Peter Conti-Brown

Legal Studies and Business Ethics Papers

The recent scholarly and policy debate concerning state fiscal crises has appropriately focused on the question of the money states have committed to their employees, bondholders, and citizens, and the implications of economic recession for those promises to pay. In that sense, the debate is not strictly about state fiscal crises, but state debt crises, and proposals to resolve them focus on ways in which the states can restructure their debts without triggering further fiscal decline. This focus on debt is understandable. The collective debts of the several states are staggering, and frequently rely on unrealistic projections of tax and ...


Does Home Owning Smooth The Variability Of Future Housing Consumption?, Andrew Paciorek, Todd Sinai 2012 University of Pennsylvania

Does Home Owning Smooth The Variability Of Future Housing Consumption?, Andrew Paciorek, Todd Sinai

Real Estate Papers

We show that the hedging benefit of owning a home reduces the variability of housing consumption after a move. When a current home owner’s house price covaries positively with housing costs in a future city, changes in the future cost of housing are offset by commensurate changes in wealth before the move. Using Census micro-data, we find that the cross-sectional variation in house values subsequent to a move is lower for home owners who moved between more highly covarying cities. Our preferred estimates imply that an increase in covariance of one standard deviation reduces the variance of subsequent housing ...


The Projection Median Of A Set Of Points In RD⋆, Riddhipratim Basu, Bhaswar B. Bhattacharya, Tanmoy Talukdar 2012 Indian Statistical Institute

The Projection Median Of A Set Of Points In RD⋆, Riddhipratim Basu, Bhaswar B. Bhattacharya, Tanmoy Talukdar

Statistics Papers

The projection median of a finite set of points in R2 was introduced by Durocher and Kirkpatrick [Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications, Vol. 42 (5), 364–375, 2009]. They proved that the projection median in R2 provides a better approximation of the 2-dimensional Euclidean median, than the center of mass or the rectilinear median, while maintaining a fixed degree of stability. In this paper we study the projection median of a set of points in Rd for d ≥ 2. Using results from the theory of integration over topological groups, we show that the d-dimensional projection median provides ...


The Sustainability Of New Programs And Innovations: A Review Of The Empirical Literature And Recommendations For Future Research, Shannon W. Stirman, John R. Kimberly, Natasha Cook, Amber Calloway, Frank Castro, Martin Charns 2012 National Center for PTSD

The Sustainability Of New Programs And Innovations: A Review Of The Empirical Literature And Recommendations For Future Research, Shannon W. Stirman, John R. Kimberly, Natasha Cook, Amber Calloway, Frank Castro, Martin Charns

Health Care Management Papers

Background

The introduction of evidence-based programs and practices into healthcare settings has been the subject of an increasing amount of research in recent years. While a number of studies have examined initial implementation efforts, less research has been conducted to determine what happens beyond that point. There is increasing recognition that the extent to which new programs are sustained is influenced by many different factors and that more needs to be known about just what these factors are and how they interact. To understand the current state of the research literature on sustainability, our team took stock of what is ...


Health Employment, Medical Spending, And Long-Term Health Reform, Mark V. Pauly, Anand Saxena 2012 University of Pennsylvania

Health Employment, Medical Spending, And Long-Term Health Reform, Mark V. Pauly, Anand Saxena

Health Care Management Papers

This article explores the relationships between the growth in the medical workforce in an aging society and employment in other sectors of the economy, based on data from the USA since 1985. Employment in medical services grew, but did not displace employment in other sectors uniformly. Instead, regression analysis shows that medical workforce growth produced contemporaneous reductions in relative employment in the manufacturing, construction, and information sectors, while being associated with growth in other services and public administration. Import penetration and productivity growth mattered, but much of the displacement remains even after controlling for these factors.

Mortgage Securitization 401: Household, Bank, And Investor Exposure Surrounding Disputes., Symphony Music

Symphony Music

(This material was prepared by a mortgage securitization geek but simplified to make it straightforward for smart people to understand. This material should be exciting for those who want to discover why the financial banking system no longer works. Mortgage securitization is about nuance. To understand what drives the actions of banks, and sometimes why regulators are missing the picture, many finer nuances of mortgage securitization must be understood. This Memorandum is an attempt to identify common structural realities and the implication for business associated with those realities)


Service Experience And Phenomena, James R. Seligman 2012 University of Southampton

Service Experience And Phenomena, James R. Seligman

James Seligman

The motivation of the paper comes from meeting Bob Lusch in London, UK, 2010, and discussion on service dominant logic principals. The interest level developed since the introduction of articles in marketing literature on service dominant logic (SDL) by Vargo and Lusch (2004a, 2008) and other authors. There have been further research articles in journals, which raised the relevance of various themes in SLD, and the lack of research into the service experience and what is defined as the phenomena (Vargo and Lusch, 2008, pp2). The research question is vital in the understanding of "experience" and "phenomena" in service marketing ...
