Predicting Counterproductive Work Behavior From The Interaction Of Personality Traits, Jaclyn Jensen 2010 DePaul University

Predicting Counterproductive Work Behavior From The Interaction Of Personality Traits, Jaclyn Jensen

Jaclyn Jensen

Much attention has been given to enhancing the prediction of counterproductive work behavior (CWB), with a particular focus on the relationship between the five factor model of personality and CWB. Several scholars have advocated for a more complex view of this relationship, and rather than focusing simply on main effects, to examine the interaction of personality traits in predicting employee behavior. In consideration of the traits most strongly related to CWB, we examined the interaction between: (1) conscientiousness and emotional stability, (2) agreeableness and emotional stability, and (3) conscientiousness and agreeableness on CWB directed at individuals (CWB-I) and the organization ...


Firm Value And Investment Policy Around Stock For Stock Mergers, Adel Bino, Elisabeta Pana 2010 University of Jordan

Firm Value And Investment Policy Around Stock For Stock Mergers, Adel Bino, Elisabeta Pana

Elisabeta Pana

We study a sample of publicly traded firms that expand by acquiring other firms in pure, stock-for-stock mergers. After these mergers, we find that the diversification premium decreases for the acquiring firm due to having added a target firm trading at a discount. Furthermore, the acquiring firm experiences a decrease in investment opportunities and a decrease in leverage. This is an effect confined only to non-diversifying mergers. Our results indicate that the acquirer’s investment efficiency at the firm level remains unchanged after the merger.

The Role Of Education And Experience In Cfo Career And Compensation, Candra Chahyadi, Bahaa Abusalim 2010 Eastern Illinois University

The Role Of Education And Experience In Cfo Career And Compensation, Candra Chahyadi, Bahaa Abusalim

Candra S. Chahyadi

We examine the educational and experience backgrounds of chief financial officers (CFOs) of large and medium firms and investigate how measures of education and experience affect CFO career and compensation. We find that, compared to medium firms, large firms have more CFOs with MBA degrees and fewer CFOs with M.Acc degrees or who are also CPAs, suggesting that large firms prefer CFOs with more general knowledge than CFOs with a specific knowledge. We also find that firm size and CFO’s tenure at their current company consistently dominate measures of education and experience in determining CFO compensation.

The Power Of ‘We’: Effects Of Psychological Collectivism On Team Performance Over Time., Erich Dierdorff, Suzanne Bell, James Belohlav 2010 DePaul University

The Power Of ‘We’: Effects Of Psychological Collectivism On Team Performance Over Time., Erich Dierdorff, Suzanne Bell, James Belohlav

Erich C. Dierdorff

We examined the influences of different facets of psychological collectivism (Preference, Reliance, Concern, Norm Acceptance, and Goal Priority) on team functioning at 3 different performance depictions: initial team performance, end-state team performance, and team performance change over time. We also tested the extent to which team-member exchange moderated the relationships between facets of psychological collectivism and performance change over time. Results from multilevel growth modeling of 66 teams (N = 264) engaged in a business simulation revealed differential effects across facets of psychological collectivism and across different performance measurements. Whereas facets concerned with affiliation (Preference and Concern) were positively related to ...


The Impact Of Buyer Firm Information Connectivity Enablers On Supplier Firm Performance: A Relational View, Chad Autry 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

The Impact Of Buyer Firm Information Connectivity Enablers On Supplier Firm Performance: A Relational View, Chad Autry

Chad W Autry

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore the impact of buyer investment in interorganizational, information-related connectivity enablers on supplier firm performance within the context of buyer-seller matched dyads.

Design/methodology/approach – Data for this study were obtained from a field survey. A mail questionnaire was constructed that contained items measuring the five key constructs of interest. Based on the supply chain information literature and the relational view, two competing models linking the focal constructs using structural equation modeling were evaluated.

Findings – The results of the study indicate that buyer-to-supplier information sharing, buyer-to-supplier performance feedback, and buyer investment in ...


A Markov Model Of Liquidity Effects In Reverse Logistics Processes: The Effects Of Random Volume And Passage, William Wilcox, Philip Horvath, Stanley Griffis, Chad Autry 2010 University of Northern Colorado

A Markov Model Of Liquidity Effects In Reverse Logistics Processes: The Effects Of Random Volume And Passage, William Wilcox, Philip Horvath, Stanley Griffis, Chad Autry

Chad W Autry

Firms at various levels of the supply chain are implementing reverse logistics systems to maximize the value captured from products flowing backwards from customers to suppliers. However, due to the sporadic and unpredictable cash outflows associated with returns, firms must take care to avoid liquidity problems. Previous work addressing reverse logisticsliquidity issues has considered long-term expectations, uncertainty, and shock potential inherent in the retail reverse logisticsprocess, but the impact of the expected returns volumes and random return quantities within fixed-scale systems has yet to be explored. The current paper addresses these concerns.

Prior Knowledge And New Product And Service Introductions By Entrepreneurial Firms: The Mediating Role Of Technological Innovation., Patrick Murphy, Jintong Tang 2010 DePaul University

Prior Knowledge And New Product And Service Introductions By Entrepreneurial Firms: The Mediating Role Of Technological Innovation., Patrick Murphy, Jintong Tang

Patrick J. Murphy

Most research on new product and service development by entrepreneurial firms takes an individual-level, pre-launch perspective or firm-level post-launch perspective. Our study examines two components of the new product and service introduction process: how entrepreneurs’ prior knowledge underpins (1) firm technological innovation prior to the introduction of new products and services (pre-launch) and (2) post-launch viability of those new products and services. Our findings, based on a series of analyses of data from 158 entrepreneurial firms, show that formal technological innovation fully mediates the relation between prior knowledge and the introduction of viable new products and services.

The Consequences Of Completion: How Level Of Completion Influences Information Concealment By Decision Makers, Jaclyn Jensen 2010 DePaul University

The Consequences Of Completion: How Level Of Completion Influences Information Concealment By Decision Makers, Jaclyn Jensen

Jaclyn Jensen

Numerous studies have demonstrated that decision makers will allocate additional resources to failing projects if those projects are close to as opposed to far from completion. The present work considers whether high project completion leads to other effects, namely, decision maker willingness to conceal negative information about a project. Three studies (one at the group level, two at the individual level; one using qualitative data, two using quantitative data) establish a link between project completion, incremental investment behavior, and the tendency to conceal negative information.

Finding A Jewel: Identity And Gendered Space In Islamic Finance, Karen Ahmed 2010 DePaul University

Finding A Jewel: Identity And Gendered Space In Islamic Finance, Karen Ahmed

Karen Hunt Ahmed

In this article, I explore how globalization discourses practices work together to form the identities of female Islamic bankers working in the first stand-alone women’s Islamic bank in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. An Islamic bank interacts with the individual by providing a discursive and physical space in which the subject can shape and respond to her desire to identify and engage with the debates in the global Muslim community about morality, practice and the role of Islam in every day life. Global financial systems and local gender practices are embodied in these buildings in a kind of financial purdah ...
