Who's In Charge Here? How Motivations Shape Instances Of Ceo Activism, Clare DaBaldo 2020 William & Mary

Who's In Charge Here? How Motivations Shape Instances Of Ceo Activism, Clare Dabaldo

Undergraduate Honors Theses

CEO activism is an exists within the relationship between the CEO and their stakeholders. Through a case study analysis, I seek to understand how a CEO’s motivations to engage in activism shape its delivery and structure. In the case of Apple CEO Tim Cook speaking out about the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act, I find that Cook’s altruistic motivation to speak out publicly against the bill is indicative that the CEO activism was used as a tactical maneuver to influence stakeholders. In the case of BlackRock CEO Larry Fink, I find that Fink’s client-driven motivations to issue ...


Corona Crisis And Inequality: Why Management Research Needs A Societal Turn, Hari BAPUJI, Charmi PATEL, Gokhan ERTUG, David G. ALLEN 2020 University of Melbourne

Corona Crisis And Inequality: Why Management Research Needs A Societal Turn, Hari Bapuji, Charmi Patel, Gokhan Ertug, David G. Allen

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

As the world struggles to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, the stark inequalities in our societies have been laid bare, and the interplay between organizations and societies has also become evident yet again. This crisis underscores the need for management scholars to take a societal turn and examine how organizational practices interact with societal economic inequality. To illustrate this approach, we discuss organizational practices – corporate social responsibility, work design, recruitment and selection, and compensation management – that can contribute to the normalization, reinforcement, and reduction of economic inequalities in society. We conclude by calling on scholars of inequality, as well as ...

Analyzing Local Alcohol Vendor Inventory Management Strategy, Angelo J. Amore 2020 University of South Carolina - Columbia

Analyzing Local Alcohol Vendor Inventory Management Strategy, Angelo J. Amore

Senior Theses

This paper attempts to analyze how local alcohol vendors maintain their inventory throughout the year in Columbia, attempting to manage factors such as the season, sporting events, and other public gatherings and events. The research question resulted in contacting over 30 local alcohol vendors in Columbia, to ask them questions regarding their strategy in alcohol inventory management. The responses to these questions were then used to organize the vendors into groups by whether or not they utilize a reorder point to purchase/brew alcohol, or if they utilize periodic ordering. The vendors were also asked to rank the seasons from ...

Systems View Of Coronavirus, Sung Won Paek, Larry M. Starr

School of Continuing and Professional Studies Coronavirus Papers

No one envisioned the kinds of problems that emerged from the novel coronavirus nor had anyone considered its interactive scope. Now is the time to begin to redesign our processes and systems so that when confronted again we can cope and navigate better. Everyone needs to be a partner in these redesigns and each of the health, social, educational, and other systems must be integrated because it is their interconnections that coproduce and give meaning to our lives.

Making Connections: Social Networks In International Business, Ilya R. P. Cuypurs, Gokhan Ertug, John Cantwell, Akbar Zaheer, Martin Kilduff

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Insights from social network research have generated significant advancements in disciplines such as sociology, economics, and psychology. In comparison, the incorporation of social network ideas into international business (IB) research remains more limited. The purpose of this special issue is to foster further research on social networks in IB. In our introductory essay, we provide a brief overview of network research in the IB domain to give a sense of some of the major ongoing themes and to illustrate how the social network approach can provide fresh insights and add substantive value to the field. To emphasize the considerable potential ...

Our Invisible Enemy, Larry M. Starr, Darshi Mody 2020 Thomas Jefferson University

Our Invisible Enemy, Larry M. Starr, Darshi Mody

School of Continuing and Professional Studies Coronavirus Papers

The novel coronavirus is invisible to the eye because it is microscopic measuring 80-160 nanometers in size; a nanometer is one billionth of a meter.

While we cannot see it in the air or on a surface, millions of us have seen the virus in full color when we discuss it on the local and national TV news, in articles and stories online, and in print media. This is because the virus is routinely pictured and used to attract us to the information being presented. The paradox is that millions of people can now recognize this invisible enemy.

Repeatedly presenting ...

Uber, Jeffrey S. Harrison, Bryant Holden, Kelli McKenna, Scott McQuiddy, Alex Wiles 2020 University of Richmond

Uber, Jeffrey S. Harrison, Bryant Holden, Kelli Mckenna, Scott Mcquiddy, Alex Wiles

Robins Case Network

Uber focuses primarily on the ride-hailing industry, which puts the company in direct competition with regular taxis. The company is like a lot of tech-driven, fast growing entrepreneurial firms in that it still struggles for profitability. Also, the popularity of this new form of transportation has put the company and its close competitors, such as Lyft, in the spotlight of government lawmakers and regulators. If they classify Uber drivers as employees rather than independent contractors, it could dramatically alter the Uber business model. This case is written in the aftermath of the ouster of one of the company’s co-founders ...


Knowledge Recombination And Inventor Networks: The Asymmetric Effects Of Embeddedness On Knowledge Reuse And Impact, Simon J.D. SCHILLEBEECKX, Yimin LIN, Gerard GEORGE 2020 Singapore Management University

Knowledge Recombination And Inventor Networks: The Asymmetric Effects Of Embeddedness On Knowledge Reuse And Impact, Simon J.D. Schillebeeckx, Yimin Lin, Gerard George

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Inventors are triply embedded. They are embedded in a network of knowledge components that they can reuse in future inventions. They are embedded in an inventor network, where internal embeddedness (the strength of relationships between focal inventors and their colleagues upon whose knowledge the team builds) and network centrality influence access to information. Finally, they are embedded in the firm, with its specific routines that favor external or internal knowledge search, what we call search orientation. Using a sample of 39,785 semiconductor patents, we study the pattern of knowledge reuse, or the recombination of technologically similar components, on invention ...

What Impedes The Success Of Late Mover It Clusters Despite Economically Favorable Environments? A Case Study Of An Indian It Cluster, Harini Mittal, Punit Saurabh, Devang Rohit, Kathak Mehta

Publications and Research

The Information Technology (IT) industry in India, is one of the major contributors to the country’s growth story. It is organized in a few strong and dominant clusters across the country. Recent research focuses on the emergence, growth and success of the seven big IT clusters that account for 96.55  of total software exports from the country. Unlike the six successful late mover clusters, there are several other late mover IT clusters that have not experienced similar growth. Why do some of the late mover IT clusters in India succeed while others fail to take off despite favorable ...


Bayesian Analysis In Strategic Management Research: Time To Update Your Priors, Brian T. McCann, Andreas Schwab 2020 Vanderbilt University

Bayesian Analysis In Strategic Management Research: Time To Update Your Priors, Brian T. Mccann, Andreas Schwab

Management Publications

Bayesian statistical methods offer an important and increasingly endorsed alternative to traditional statistical significance testing. This paper presents a brief introduction to Bayesian methods, providing guidance to strategic management researchers who may wish to incorporate these methods into their research. We describe the advantages of Bayesian approaches and explain the steps involved in conducting and reporting a Bayesian analysis. For illustration, we provide a sample analysis, including all associated code using version 15 of Stata, which features significantly augmented Bayesian capabilities.


Political Ideology Of The Board And Ceo Dismissal Following Financial Misconduct, Uisung PARK, Warren BOEKER, David GOMULYA 2020 Syracuse University

Political Ideology Of The Board And Ceo Dismissal Following Financial Misconduct, Uisung Park, Warren Boeker, David Gomulya

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Why do some boards refuse to take serious action against CEOs who have committed financial misconduct? Past work has directed attention to the antecedents of misconduct while largely overlooking this question. The relatively few studies to examine it have typically revolved around the capacity of boards to take action, or their relationships to their CEOs. This study instead examines how the beliefs and values held by board members can influence their actions following financial misconduct. Focusing on political ideology, we argue and find that politically conservative boards are more likely to respond by dismissing the CEO than are liberal boards ...

From Grocery Stores To Daycares: Analyzing The Desirability And Feasibility Of A Proposed Intervention To Mitigate Child Hunger In North Philadelphia, Monica A. Volodarsky

Wharton Research Scholars

The purpose of this study was to ascertain whether a proposed program with the goal of mitigating child hunger in North Philadelphia would be desirable, or accepted by key stakeholders, and feasible, meaning financially viable to implement. The program being considered is grocery stores selling to daycares, at a discounted price, excess edible and redistributable produce to be distributed to the children enrolled in the daycare, providing them with fresh and nutritious fruits and vegetables. To determine whether the proposed program is desirable, a qualitative analysis was completed on a series of semi-structured interviews conducted with representatives of relevant stakeholder ...
