Barriers For Small Businesses To Adopt Sustainable Practices In The Sioux Falls Area, Meredith King

Sustainability is a broad concept that encompasses environmental, social, and economic factors to meet current and future needs.

Understanding Millennials Regarding Online Versus In-Store Grocery Shopping Preferences, Timothy L. Schauer 2022 University of Lynchburg

Understanding Millennials Regarding Online Versus In-Store Grocery Shopping Preferences, Timothy L. Schauer

Atlantic Marketing Journal

Grocery shopping has changed in significant ways over the last 150 years – all to allow customers to choose their own items (Strasser, 1989). Within the last decade, large U.S. supermarkets, like Kroger, Walmart, and Safeway have rolled out online stores (Perez, 2015). However, in 2017, when the Internet-based giant, Amazon, acquired Whole Foods and developed the Amazon Go concept store, the march toward online-only sales came into question. The purpose of this research is to attempt to understand the preferences associated with Millennials regarding online versus in-store grocery shopping preferences. This paper provides the following contributions. First, it extends ...

The Cost Of Urbanization: A Look Into The Transformation Of Mao Era Reforms, Tieren A. Dokes 2022 University of San Francisco

The Cost Of Urbanization: A Look Into The Transformation Of Mao Era Reforms, Tieren A. Dokes

Master's Projects and Capstones

Mao Zedong has played an influential role in Chinese society, whether for better or for worse. His policies have caused ripples throughout contemporary Chinese society, but nothing stronger than his desire for urbanization and economic land reform. Utilizing Mao’s drive for urbanization and economic reform as essential historical context, this paper connects how the contemporary governmental push for urbanization has been unyielding, and, in some ways, counterproductive as decade-old Mao-era institutions reverberate in an echo chamber with cracks that allow darker forces to seep in. Real estate and urban development companies and local governments are given monetary incentive to ...

The Impact Of Privacy Control On Users' Intention To Use Smart Home Internet Of Things (Iot) Services, Mingyung Kim, Bo Reum Choi

Asia Marketing Journal

Despite the diverse benefits of smart home Internet of Things (IoT) services, the biggest obstacle to the actual usage of those services is concern about privacy. However, little research has investigated the impact of privacy control on users’ intention to use smart home services. Based on communication privacy management theory and privacy calculus theory, this study investigates how privacy control options affect users’ perceived benefits and costs and how those perceptions affect individuals’ intentions to use smart home services by conducting an experiment. Our results showed that smart home privacy control options decreased perceived benefits and increased perceived costs. The ...

I Can’T Believe Online. A Study On How Negative Reviews Move Online Shoppers To Offline Channel, Hyo-Jeong Kim, Sang Man Han

Asia Marketing Journal

Despite the benefits of online shopping, we easily observe consumer behaviour when making purchases through offline channels. Why do they choose to go offline by taking the effort to go there? As a factor influencing decision-making, this study assumes that distrust of online shopping increases webrooming intentions that online consumers move to offline channels. Consumers check online reviews as well as seller information to increase their purchasing confidence. There are few studies on the effect of negative online reviews on consumers' purchasing decisions. Contrary to the pessimistic results of previous studies, the results of this study explain the mechanism by ...

The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) was the conceptual foundation for this study. To achieve the objectives of the study, one thousand five hundred and twelve effective questionnaires were collected and analyzed using Smart PLS 3.3.

Researchers agree that deceptive defense could be the future of cybersecurity, and they call for more research in the deceptive category. The unresolved question from these researchers is what attack style could be used with a deception-based defense against an attacker.

Leader-Member Exchange (Lxm) Differentiation And Organizational Outcomes: The Role Of Leader Integrity And Perceived Inclusion, Lipika Neshmin Arif

Theses and Dissertations

The leader-member exchange (LMX) relationship is dynamic and rewarding for organizational success. The exchange relationship between a leader and his/her followers can vary from high-quality to low-quality relationships and thus affect the benefits of the organization. Therefore, the main emphasis of this paper is to examine the influence of LMX differentiation, known as leaders' differential relationships quality with a set of followers, on organizational outcomes such as affective organizational commitment, innovative work behavior, and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). This study proposes a moderated mediation model to explain how and when LMX differentiation impacts organizational outcomes. Drawing from the social ...

Assessing The Efficacy Of Cites Restrictions On Malagasy Rosewood, Nicholas Cargill 2022 University of Richmond

Assessing The Efficacy Of Cites Restrictions On Malagasy Rosewood, Nicholas Cargill

Honors Theses

This paper seeks to determine whether the CITES trade restrictions on rosewood have been effective. Effectiveness will be measured by the amount of illegal logging the restrictions reduce. The Matt Hansen Global Deforestation dataset, which measures deforestation from year to year, will be analyzed in the Google Earth Engine Code Editor to determine the yearly amount of deforestation in Madagascar. This output will then be loaded into R and assessed using OLS estimation techniques to determine whether the ban had a significant impact on the amount of illegal logging occurring in Madagascar. Because CITES restrictions are lifted and restored with ...

Sacred Business: Outlining Business As Mission For The Fulfillment Of The Great Commission, Eli Jackson 2022 Liberty University

Sacred Business: Outlining Business As Mission For The Fulfillment Of The Great Commission, Eli Jackson

Senior Honors Theses

Business as Mission (BAM) is the operation of a for-profit business located in a cross-cultural setting and aimed toward the fulfillment of the great commission. This definition reveals four key success factors for BAM: support, financial and otherwise, for both the business and the missionaries; the ability to gain access to cross-cultural settings; the opportunity to advance the gospel; and the requirement of managing both missional and business goals. Examining each of these areas, along with the historical effectiveness of BAM, reveals that BAM is an efficient and effective missional strategy, which should be used to see the Great Commission ...
