Leveraging E-Learning In Organisations: Challenges, Benefits And Models For Adoption, Ugo Digwo

Ugo Digwo

Abstract This paper is an analytical review of the journey so far on e-Learning adoption by organisations, with a focus on identifying a model-based approach from existing research, and identifiable success factors.

Change In The Air, Rick Burton

The author reflects on changes in the sports sponsorship world. He points out the relevance of an orientation toward new media and the concept of doing things differently for sponsorship. He describes the case of basketball star LeBron James who revealed a secret pact with fellow superstars Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh to play together for the Miami Heat team. According to the author, James' decision led to a shift in the perceived balance of power from the team owners to the player. He notes the importance of a sponsorship alliance for researchers.


Armoede Te Huur. Ervaringsdeskundigheid Op Een Schoteltje., Birgit Goris, Wim Van Opstal 2009 CESOC, Leuven University College

Armoede Te Huur. Ervaringsdeskundigheid Op Een Schoteltje., Birgit Goris, Wim Van Opstal

Wim Van Opstal

Het Europese jaar van de bestrijding van armoede en sociale uitsluiting, loopt op haar laatste benen. Het Belgische motto luidde: ‘De strijd tegen armoede is een zaak van iedereen’. Een uitspraak die wijst op de noodzaak van een brede maatschappelijke inzet en betrokkenheid van het beleid, de hulp- en dienstverlening, armen en niet-armen. Cijfers en onderzoek tonen aan dat één persoon op zeven in België onder de armoedegrens leeft, ondanks het vangnet van onze sociale bijstand en sociale zekerheid. Al verbergt het zich nog zo goed, armoede is ook in ons land een reëel probleem. De aanpak van dit probleem ...

Internationalisation Of Italian Shoemaking Districts: Some Empirical Evidence From The Marche Region, selena aureli, massimo ciambotti, federica salvatori 2009 Urbino University

Internationalisation Of Italian Shoemaking Districts: Some Empirical Evidence From The Marche Region, Selena Aureli, Massimo Ciambotti, Federica Salvatori

selena aureli

Focusing on the Fermano-Maceratese shoemaking district as one of the most important industrial district in Italy, this study attempts to identify the strategic responses undertaken by district companies to face new competitive challenges derived from globalisation. Literature and professionals suggest that internationalisation on upstream and downstream markets is a necessary strategic path to pursue in order to preserve competitive advantages. However, it is not given that all district firms are able or willing to internationalise. Drawing from transaction cost theory, the Authors hypothesize that internalisation is positively correlated to the size of company as this strategy entails the externalisation of ...

Strategic Revenue Recognition Around Earnings Benchmarks, Marcus Caylor 2009 Kennesaw State University

Strategic Revenue Recognition Around Earnings Benchmarks, Marcus Caylor

Marcus L Caylor

I examine whether managers use discretion in revenue recognition to avoid three earnings benchmarks. I find that managers use discretion in both accrued revenue (i.e., accounts receivable) and deferred revenue (i.e., advances from customers) to avoid negative earnings surprises, but find little evidence that discretion is used to avoid losses or earnings decreases. For a common sample of firms with both deferred revenue and accounts receivable, I find evidence that managers do not prefer to exercise discretion in either account. However, further tests show that managers preferred to use discretion in deferred revenue before the Sarbanes–Oxley Act ...


Management Accounting Knowledge, Culture, And Change In Today's Global Music Industry, Julia Camp, Peter Goodrich, Patrick Kelly 2009 Providence College

Management Accounting Knowledge, Culture, And Change In Today's Global Music Industry, Julia Camp, Peter Goodrich, Patrick Kelly

Julia M. Camp

In the past two decades, computer technology has shifted the knowledge capital from the major music producers first to smaller independent producers and finally to the artists themselves. No longer does the culture require artists to be beholden to the larger music studios and distribution networks. Internal costs shifts in high quality CD recording has made it possible for individual musicians to record their own CDs and distribute them via the world wide web. This cost shifting has placed great strain on the “music industry” (major record labels). Large music producers have had to recognize the competition from smaller firms ...

Virtual Integration As A Predictor For Product Innovation: A Preliminary Insight, Geraldy Dadriyansyah, Amlus Ibrahim 2009 Universiti Utara Malaysia

Virtual Integration As A Predictor For Product Innovation: A Preliminary Insight, Geraldy Dadriyansyah, Amlus Ibrahim

Geraldy Dadriyansyah

The intense competition in manufacturing industry has forced manufacturing firms to switch their product development approach from traditional to concurrent engineering in order to stay competitive in term of product differentiation and innovation. In order to support concurrent engineering practice, both internal and external participants contributing to product development should be located into close proximity; therefore physical integration of team becomes the key enabler of concurrent engineering. However, as the paradigm has been shifted from adopting “centralized integrated product development”, physical integration is no longer efficient and should be replaced by virtual integration. This conceptual paper intends to explore ways ...

The ways in which Southwest illustrates theories of ...

Accounting for Contingencies includes reporting of potential losses from litigation in process, environmental damage, and expenses related to uncollectible accounts receivable and product warranty costs. The primary source accounting ...
