Kris Swanberg (M.S. Ed. ’10) – Nice Cream Chicago, 2009 DePaul University

Kris Swanberg (M.S. Ed. ’10) – Nice Cream Chicago

Dr. Harold Welsch

Nice Cream produces and sells hand-crafted, organic ice cream in over 20 retail locations throughout Chicago. Having learned about the Coleman Center only six months before graduating, Kris took an elective entrepreneurship course, second place in the 2010 Launch DePaul competition, and some last-minute coaching. Along the way, she made two important connections for her company – one was with a potential investor who inquired about the possibility of taking Nice Cream national, and the other was with the local food buyer for Whole Foods, which led to Nice Cream’s placement in three area stores. Today, Kris employs one other ...

Vista, Vision And Visual Consumption From The Age Of Enlightenment, Hélène de Burgh-Woodman, Jan Brace-Govan 2009 The University of Notre Dame Australia

Vista, Vision And Visual Consumption From The Age Of Enlightenment, Hélène De Burgh-Woodman, Jan Brace-Govan

Hélène de Burgh-Woodman

Drawing on previous discussions of visual consumption in marketing, this paper uses two historical examples to examine visuality and the enduring effect of the Age of Enlightenment on visual consumption. Drawing on the French garden and the philosophical trope of the Molyneux Man, the manner in which the consumption experience is mediated and narrated through vision is considered. It is argued that cultural perspective and individual perception work in constant dialogue to produce an individual’s ability to consume, or ‘take in’, visual signs inherent to our world. From the Enlightenment, this interaction has characterized the contemporary consumer’s world ...

Is Strategy Different For Very Small And New Firms?, G. Lumpkin, Alexander McKelvie, David Gras, Robert Nason 2009 Selected Works

Is Strategy Different For Very Small And New Firms?, G. Lumpkin, Alexander Mckelvie, David Gras, Robert Nason

Robert Nason

In this paper, we argue that much of the small business strategic management literature has drawn too heavily from work done on large, established firms. We build upon the notions of the liabilities of smallness and newness to discuss how microenterprises and very new firms are different in regards to their strategic analysis, strategic content, strategic resources, and strategic processes. We note that there are a number of important and non-obvious questions that need to be asked that have implications for the most common firms in the world, those that are very small.

The Rbv And Value Creation: A Managerial Perspective, Angelina Zubac, Graham Hubbard, Lester Johnson 2009 University of Adelaide

The Rbv And Value Creation: A Managerial Perspective, Angelina Zubac, Graham Hubbard, Lester Johnson

Lester Johnson

Purpose: The paper aims to explain why the customer value construct is important to resource-based view (RBV) scholars and how one might define it to study it. Design/methodology/approach: By a summary of the ideas behind the RBV and previously applied definitions of customer value, the paper explains why Woodruff's multidimensional definition of customer value is suited to studying customer value from a managerial perspective. To this end, it develops a framework and derives three research questions for studying how managers use the firm's resources to creat customer value. Findings: It was found that to understand how ...

Using Historic Mutinies To Understand Defiance In Modern Organizations., Ray Coye, Patrick Murphy, Patricia Spencer 2009 DePaul University

Using Historic Mutinies To Understand Defiance In Modern Organizations., Ray Coye, Patrick Murphy, Patricia Spencer

Patrick J. Murphy

Purpose: Guided by voice and leadership theory, we articulate the underpinnings of upward defiance (competence deficiency; ignorance of concerns; structural gaps between echelons) and describe the managerial actions that help depose those underpinnings. Design / Methodology / Approach: We analyze 30 historic narrative accounts of actual mutinies. The journalistic accounts from bygone eras provide unparalleled insight into the basic dynamics of mutiny and provide novel insights into organizational defiance. Findings: Our principal findings show that the underpinnings of mutiny in organizations derive from three foundations: disconnections between authority echelons, modes of addressing member disgruntlement, and the need for management to develop competencies ...


Crisis Opportunism: Bail Outs And E-Scads In The Gfc, Judy Johnston, Alexander Kouzmin, Kym Thorne, Stephen Kelly 2009 University of Technology, Sydney

Crisis Opportunism: Bail Outs And E-Scads In The Gfc, Judy Johnston, Alexander Kouzmin, Kym Thorne, Stephen Kelly

Adjunct Professor Stephen J Kelly

As a response to the “junk-debt”- inspired, global, economic crisis, governments, with supra-national organizational approval, have appropriated billions of taxpayers’ dollars for bail-outs, have set-up special funds and under-written depositors’ savings in the desperate hope of alleviating the threat of rapid, economic decline and systemic destruction of value. Whether these governments have a democratic mandate for such unprecedented action is debatable. More importantly, though, is whether such decisions amount to good re-regulatory policy.

First, it is known that some of the bail-out money to large corporations has been squandered by oligarchic recipients and appropriated by them in their own interests ...
