Information Behaviors Of Cancer Patients In The Information Age, Lisa Zilinski 2009 University of South Florida

Information Behaviors Of Cancer Patients In The Information Age, Lisa Zilinski

Lisa Zilinski

Advances in cancer treatments and the increasing availability of information are changing the information behaviors of cancer patients. Many American adults search for health-related information on the Internet and have made decisions based on results from general search engines. Information and health professionals are concerned about the reliability, validity and volume of health information available. Patient usage and preferences are discussed. This article reviews recent literature and research surrounding the information seeking behaviors of cancer patients and provides ideas for future research.


Disclosure Quality And Capital Investment, James Frederickson, Gilles Hilary 2009 Melbourne Business School

Disclosure Quality And Capital Investment, James Frederickson, Gilles Hilary

James R. Frederickson

We examine whether disclosure quality affects the link between a firm’s cash flow or asset values and its capital investment. We use a unique setting to examine this issue: a sudden 50% decrease in oil prices in 1986. This setting allows us to examine the effect of disclosure quality immediately prior to an unexpected, exogenous increase in a firm’s capital constraint on the firm’s capital investment immediately following the shock. In contrast to prior research, which examines the association between the level of disclosure and the level of a firm financing attribute (e.g., cost of public ...

Immigrant Business Enterprises: A Classification Framework Conceptualization And Test, Roberto Curci, Robert Mackoy 2009 Butler University

Immigrant Business Enterprises: A Classification Framework Conceptualization And Test, Roberto Curci, Robert Mackoy

Robert Mackoy

This article proposes the Immigrant Business Enterprises Classification Framework to organize immigrant-owned businesses into categories associated with different levels of business integration into a host country's mainstream business community. The article applies the framework and reports the findings of structured face-to-face interviews with 199 Hispanic business enterprises (HBEs) in Indianapolis. The authors find Hispanic-owned businesses hold different characteristics depending upon the integration category in which they are classified; the findings suggest that to support immigrant entrepreneurship, governments, business development organizations, and researchers should address category-specific challenges, opportunities, and needs.

An Operational Framework For Mortgage Supply Chains, Juri Hirschey, Patricia Wescott, Nezih Altay 2009 DePaul University

An Operational Framework For Mortgage Supply Chains, Juri Hirschey, Patricia Wescott, Nezih Altay

Nezih Altay

Operations management in the mortgage banking industry requires a strategic framework that takes into account the industry’s volatility, operational complexity and unique customer model. The foundation of this framework begins by (re)defining the mortgage lender’s customer to include the capital markets. This paper proposes a novel model for managing mortgage banking operations, a model that uniquely reveals two different but intricately related supply chains in mortgage operations. The proposed dual-direction supply chain model offers speed and flexibility with one supply chain and integration and market knowledge with the other – the combination of which is critical to developing ...


Evaluating Pay-For-Performance Systems: Critical Issues For Implementation, Myron Glassman, Aaron Glassman, Paul Champagne, Mike Zugelder 2009 Old Dominion University

Evaluating Pay-For-Performance Systems: Critical Issues For Implementation, Myron Glassman, Aaron Glassman, Paul Champagne, Mike Zugelder

Aaron Glassman

Most organizations use a merit pay or pay-for-performance system (PFP) to improve employee performance. Despite its popularity, a PFP system can be difficult to implement. Success depends on several issues. These include adequate funding, suitable job characteristics, and appropriate performance feedback. Moreover, even under the best circumstances, PFP systems may cause unintended consequences such as dysfunctional behavior, unethical conduct and even employment discrimination. Still, when the critical issues for proper implementation are appropriately addressed, a PFP system is and should continue to be a successful management tool to enhance employee performance in the workplace.

How Much Risk Can You Handle?: The Development Of A New Risk Tolerance Questionnaire, Courtney Droms, William Droms 2009 Butler University

How Much Risk Can You Handle?: The Development Of A New Risk Tolerance Questionnaire, Courtney Droms, William Droms

Courtney M. Droms

As we have all witnessed over the past few years with the economic downturn that has faced the world, individuals and corporations have been extremely risky with their investments in an effort to capitalize on high-risk and high-return investments. However, the global economy has been threatened by all of these risky investment decisions and there is now an effort underway by many financial institutions to overhaul the advice they give to both individual and corporate clients about the level of risk suggested for their portfolios (Mannes 2009). This research shows that an investor’s risk tolerance is not as stable ...

Business Failure Prediction Using Decision Trees, Adrian Gepp, Kumar Kuldeep, Sukanto Bhattacharya 2009 Bond University

Business Failure Prediction Using Decision Trees, Adrian Gepp, Kumar Kuldeep, Sukanto Bhattacharya

Adrian Gepp

Accurate business failure prediction models would be extremely valuable to many industry sectors, particularly financial investment and lending. The potential value of such models is emphasised by the extremely costly failure of high-profile companies in the recent past. Consequently, a significant interest has been generated in business failure prediction within academia as well as in the finance industry. Statistical business failure prediction models attempt to predict the failure or success of a business. Discriminant and logit analyses have traditionally been the most popular approaches, but there are also a range of promising non-parametric techniques that can alternatively be applied. In ...


Work Design In Situ: Understanding The Role Of Occupational And Organizational Context., Frederick Morgeson, Erich Dierdorff, Jillian Hmurovic 2009 Michigan State University

Work Design In Situ: Understanding The Role Of Occupational And Organizational Context., Frederick Morgeson, Erich Dierdorff, Jillian Hmurovic

Erich C. Dierdorff

Despite nearly 100 years of scientific study, comparatively little attention has been given to articulating how the broader occupational and organizational context might impact work design. We seek to address this gap by discussing how aspects of the occupational and organizational context can constrain or enable the emergence of different work design features as well as influence the relationships between work design features and various outcomes.We highlight how different forms of context might impact work design and suggest that this is an important and potentially fruitful area for future work design research and theory.
