Multi-Methodological Approaches In Design Science: A Review, Proposal And Application, Xiaoyan Bai, David White, David Sundaram 2017 University of Auckland

Multi-Methodological Approaches In Design Science: A Review, Proposal And Application, Xiaoyan Bai, David White, David Sundaram

David J. White

Multi-methodological research approaches have been strongly recommended for adoption to guide information systems (IS) research and deal with the complexities involved in the research. These research approaches require appropriate mapping and integration of multiple research methodologies. However, this is not an easy task to accomplish due to a series of philosophical, cultural and psychological issues involved. By reviewing and analyzing existing representative multi-methodological design science approaches, we identify that each approach has its own strengths and weaknesses. There is a clear gap between the need of multi-methodological approaches and the support from the existing research frameworks. To address these problems ...


Measuring International Productivity: A Comparison Of Sixteen Countries, J.G. Wacker, Danny J. Johnson 2017 Iowa State University

Measuring International Productivity: A Comparison Of Sixteen Countries, J.G. Wacker, Danny J. Johnson

Danny J Johnson

During the last several decades productivity improvement measures have received increased recognition as important performance measures. This study analyzes and empirically estimates traditional productivity measures. Using data from sixteen countries, the results of this study indicate that the Hayes and Clark total factor productivity measure [2] is weakly associated with labor and investment in equipment, but more strongly associated with material productivity.


Factors Limiting Cell Penetration In Manufacturing Plants, Danny J. Johnson, U. Wemmerlov 2017 Iowa State University

Factors Limiting Cell Penetration In Manufacturing Plants, Danny J. Johnson, U. Wemmerlov

Danny J Johnson

Despite the potential advantages of cellular manufacturing, most plants with cells have only partially converted their systems. This study examines factors that limit cell penetration within plants using a mail survey of cell users. The existence of service processes, lack of a strong champion who would push the design and implementation of more cells, and low cost of tracking non-cell parts/ products on the plant floor were found to be significant predictors of cell penetration for plants with cells and no plans for further cells. Factors limiting penetration in plants planning to implement further cells could not be determined.


Assembly Cells Versus Assembly Lines: Insights On Performance Improvements From Simulation Experiments And A Case Study, Danny J. Johnson 2017 Iowa State University

Assembly Cells Versus Assembly Lines: Insights On Performance Improvements From Simulation Experiments And A Case Study, Danny J. Johnson

Danny J Johnson

With the current emphasis on short product delivery lead times and customized product configurations, there is a need for systems that can quickly assemble small batches of customized product. While some plants are converting their assembly lines to assembly cells to achieve this goal, the reasons for the performance improvement resulting from conversion have not been well documented or understood, making it difficult to know when and where assembly cells are applicable. This research adds to the sparse body of literature in this area by examining the planned conversion of an assembly line to a set of parallel assembly cells ...

Do Tax Directors Face Consequences From Tax Avoidance?, Liora Y. Schulman 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Do Tax Directors Face Consequences From Tax Avoidance?, Liora Y. Schulman

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

I examine the association between tax avoidance and tax director turnover. Specifically, I hand collect the names of tax directors and explore whether tax directors face consequences from making tax avoidance decisions. This unique dataset allows me to identify the tax director, who is directly responsible for taxes, which are one of the most significant accounts, and who prior literature has largely ignored due to a lack of availability of data. I find evidence that the tax director is more likely to face consequences, as measured by turnover, when their firm’s effective tax rate is above their industry median ...


Black Models Matter: Challenging The Racism Of Aesthetics And The Facade Of Inclusion In The Fashion Industry, Scarlett L. Newman 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Black Models Matter: Challenging The Racism Of Aesthetics And The Facade Of Inclusion In The Fashion Industry, Scarlett L. Newman

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The global fashion market is expanding every day, but often, the global fashion runways do not reflect that reality. On average, black models make up for six percent of models used on the runway during the fashion month calendar. This small percentage is also mirrored in advertisements and editorials featured in popular fashion magazines. In the 1970s, black models were met with great opportunities, and that success trickled down into the 1980s and the 1990s. As the 90s came to a close, top designers opted for an aesthetic that ultimately excluded models of color, but black models beared the brunt ...


Profiling The International New Venture -A Literature Review Of The Empirical Evidence, Natasha Evers 2017 School ofBusiness & Humanities Institute of Technology, Blanchardstown.

Profiling The International New Venture -A Literature Review Of The Empirical Evidence, Natasha Evers

The ITB Journal

International New Ventures (INVs) are defined as "business organisations that, from inception, seek to derive significant competitive advantage from the use of resources and the sale of outputs in multiple countries" (McDougall et al., 1994: 470). Globalisation, the dismantling of trade barriers, and the pervasive impact of new technologies have created unprecedented opportunities for young firms to go international early in their life cycle. This is also evidenced by the large number of long established firms that have recently internationalised. In light of these global trends, size of the firm is no longer a key determinant of internationalisation as it ...


E-Business - Making The Move From Traditional To Next Generation Marketing Strategies: An Exploratory Study Of Irish Organisations, Ethel Claffey 2017 School of Business, Athlone Institute of Technology, Athlone

E-Business - Making The Move From Traditional To Next Generation Marketing Strategies: An Exploratory Study Of Irish Organisations, Ethel Claffey

The ITB Journal

In an era in which Irish firms face an increasingly competitive environment, it is essential that they explore the e-business option. Experience worldwide shows that this is now one of the most effective ways to increase sales, productivity and profits, if incorporated effectively into the strategic planning process. While much has been written about the potential impact of the Internet on marketing strategies, very little of the debate has been focused on Irish conditions and practice and on how Irish companies are adapting to the e-business environment. This paper reviews the diffusion of Internet access and use, with a view ...


The Value Of Enterprise: Overcoming Cultural Barriers In Northern Ireland, Julie Byrne, Sharon McGreevy 2017 Lecturer, School of Business and Humanities, National College of Ireland

The Value Of Enterprise: Overcoming Cultural Barriers In Northern Ireland, Julie Byrne, Sharon Mcgreevy

The ITB Journal

This paper presents some of the evaluation results of a learning intervention which took place in Northern Ireland from 1999-2002. The intervention called the KEY project was funded by the International Fund for Ireland and aimed to bring together young people from conflicting cultural and political backgrounds living in Northern Ireland and the border counties of the Republic of Ireland. The objective was to develop the interpersonal and enterprise skills of the participants by involving them in a range of learning activities. In this way the project hoped to redress the disadvantages of children born into marginalised communities and also ...

Backpedaling Nugget Smugglers: A Facebook And News Article Thematic Analysis Of Chick-Fil-A Vs. Gay Marriage, Stacy M. Wiedmaier

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

This study utilizes William Benoit’s Image Repair Theory to frame the dominant crisis communication strategies that fast food chain Chick-fil-A (CFA) employed before, during and after their CEO mixed his personal opinion on social issues with corporate policy in June 2012. The thematic analysis draws from three distinct data sets that include 3,900 Facebook comments posted by the general public on CFA’s social media page, 32 individual Atlanta Journal-Constitution news articles that address the debate and CFA’s public response to the crisis titled “Who We Are.” This thesis aims to identify both the dominant themes in ...

Effective Methods Of Marketing An On-Campus Resource To College Students, Samantha Gary

Graphic Communication

The problem this research it attempting to solve is how to market an on-campus resource to college students. Through conducting surveys, gathering research, reviewing case studies, and analyzing data, the author has found that the answer is to not to segment college students by major. It is more effective to figure out what a typical students’ needs are and address them by providing a solution to their problems. By strategically placing printed posters around campus that capitalized on student’s needs for study breaks and outlets to tap in to their ideas, the author found that more students respond to ...

Trends Within Craft Beer Packaging, Aurelia See

Graphic Communication

While the print industry is facing a changing atmosphere, one thing is as sure as death and taxes— there will always be a market for print within the packaging industry. There is a growing market within the craft beer industry, and with that comes competition for each brewery. Many breweries are finding it difficult to use their beer’s first point of sale, the packaging, to their advantage when attracting consumers to their product. The purpose of this research is to provide the reader with knowledge and insight into package design, with special emphasis on designing for current trends and ...


Reversing Inequality, Combatting Climate Change: A Climate Jobs Program For New York State, J. Mijin Cha, Lara Skinner 2017 Occidental College

Reversing Inequality, Combatting Climate Change: A Climate Jobs Program For New York State, J. Mijin Cha, Lara Skinner

Research Studies and Reports

[Excerpt] Economic inequality in New York is rising. Currently, the state has the second highest level of economic inequality in the country. Unequal job growth across the state and stagnant wages in several sectors are two of the main contributors to rising inequality. While the state overall has seen several years of employment growth, there are stronger employment gains in New York City than in other parts of the state still suffering from job losses and stagnant employment levels. Additionally, in many sectors, such as construction and manufacturing, wages are not increasing at the same pace as inflation, leaving many ...
