ARTICLE 1

A Powerful Organization Development Resource that Remains Overlooked

Résumé :

This chapter looks at the major alignments that SEAM and the values of ODC have in common and the resource potential that this methodology has for change leaders. The topics covered are the importance of people’s contribution to change, inclusion of the entire system, systems thinking, listening to all the stories about the organization, tying change to the bottom line, social responsibility, and hybrid consulting. All elements together make a powerful resource that has been overlooked in the change field. The goal is to make readers globally aware of the importance of this methodology and the usefulness that it has as a tool for change.

Community Groups as Triggers of Female Entrepreneurship, the Case of Senegal’s Food Sector

Résumé :

This paper presents a research aimed at answering the following questions: what motivates Senegalese women to choose community groups in order to create ventures? How do institutions affect their entrepreneurial processes? To do so, an in-depth study of four cases of female community groups was conducted. The results show that, by way of the technical and psychological they provide, female community groups are a perfect setting to help women entrepreneurs succeed. This arrangement helps them also to best deal with organizing their personal lives. The entrepreneurial process is rather causal and lean, but definitely no less effective.

The Habermasian perspective of digital entrepreneurship: A roadmap for the evolution of the field

Résumé :

Research on digital entrepreneurship (DE) has significantly increased, but despite the contributions of extant literature, a coherent outlook of the field’s potential evolution remains lacking. To advance further research on DE, the authors draw on Jurgen Habermas’ critical theory to provide a comprehensive framework that will enable DE scholars and practitioners to develop a common agenda regarding conceptualization and theorization. In this respect, this paper contributes to prior efforts seeking to consolidate the legitimacy of DE as field research in entrepreneurship. In addition, this research highlights philosophical and social foundations of DE.

Silent Herding in Initial Public Offering (IPO) Reluctance: Evidence from Developing Countries

Résumé :

This paper aims at outlining the psychological underpinnings of CEOs’ financial decision-making with regard to IPO reluctance. 67 in-depth interviews were conducted within the framework of a constructivistic phenomenological analysis combined with regression and logit/probit models. The findings posit that CEOs’ stock market loathness is driven by silent herding behavior. This paper consists of the earliest empirical evidence of silent herding and therefore contributes to the enrichment of the theoretical field of behavioral finance and that of IPO decision-making. From a practical point of view, we provide policy-setters with recommendations to be implemented in investment vehicles and IPO incentives policies.

Résumé :

Industrial companies can be characterized as culturally plural organizations, as different occupational groups within the organization are likely to follow specific cultural preferences. This cultural diversity challenges the enterprise information system (EIS) implementation since subcultures may be more or less consistent with the values embedded in the EIS. This paper relies on a longitudinal study of a German industrial company’s subsidiary in China. Data has been gathered through participant observation, interviews and focus groups over a two-year period. We identified and described the cultural divide between a reference group and two groups. In order to continue performing and fulfilling their professional obligations, the contending groups engage in constructive deviance behaviors, thus accommodating the prescriptions associated with both the dominant culture and their subculture. We identified two types of constructive deviance that result from the cultural contradictions, namely creative performance and taking charge. We discuss the effects of constructive deviance in the organization and conclude with theoretical and practical contributions.

How Do Academics Manage their Stay and Career Prospects during their International Assignment? An Exploratory Analysis

Résumé :

Through a multi-level analysis, this paper aims to investigate the direct effects of Pay Satisfaction (a), Work-life Balance (b), Perceived discrimination (c), Cost of living (d), and Family encouragement back home (e) on Perceived Career Opportunities (PCO) and Intention to Stay (IT) in the host country. A web questionnaire was performed and administrated to a sample (N=156) of Tunisian and Egyptian university professors working in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). The results of the empirical study indicate that there are significant positive and negative effects of host country factors in different relationships with PCO and IT. The findings shed the light on how the benefits and challenges of the host country shape the expatriates' behavior. Additionally, the findings contribute to the limited literature within this field of study.

How does online banking influence the account manager’s job? Cases of Tunisian and Romanian banks

Résumé :

The article explores the question of the influence of the use of mobile banking on the activities and skills required by the account managers. A qualitative approach based on semi-structured interviews with 35 account managers in 3 Tunisian banks and 3 Romanian banks is adopted. The results show that the customers’ use of online banking has not a substantial impact on account manager’s job in Romanian banks. Contrariwise, some Tunisian account managers claim that the emergence of online banking requires the development of the « stress management skill ».

Entrepreneurial opportunity discovered or created? A Strong Structuration Theory perspective

Résumé :

The nexus of individual and entrepreneurial opportunity is a complex social process involving a wide range of different actors. The mobilization of the Strong Structuration Theory allows researchers to have a broad vision of this social process in order to develop a complete analysis of the nature of an entrepreneurial opportunity, to comprehensively analyse the relevant structures and to understand how these are modified through the actions of an entrepreneur. This paper presents the study of the creation of a new airline. We provide an answer to the puzzle of entrepreneurial theory proposing a theoretical framework that exceeds the dichotomy between discovery and creation approaches in order to understand the nexus of individual and opportunity as a cycle of structuration.
