Comparative Research of Central and Eastern European Startup Researches Based on Artificial Intelligence-Based Natural Language Processing

Pubblicato online: 31 May 2022
Pagine: 4 - 33

Astratto

Abstract

Objective: In our study, we analyze Central and Eastern European (CEE) scientific papers published in peer-reviewed scientific journals between 2015 and 2021. We examine what category systems and methods are used in Central and Eastern European start-up researches in the recent years.

Methodology: Our used methodology was structured literature review analysis and artificial intelligence-based natural language processing which is one of the most evolving methodological directions in economics and social sciences at present but it is very rarely used in review analysis of startup research.

Value Added: The NLP method has not been widely used for the analysis of the startup literature. Furthermore, our study is the first which analyzes CEE startups research with NLP technique.

Findings: Based on our results, it can be stated that CEE startup researches follow the big global startup research narratives. However, a specific conceptual network is also emerging which contains several shifts of emphasis compared to the directions of global research.

Internal Corporate Social Responsibility Preferences of Young Job Seekers with Regard to Sustainable HRM: Are These CSR Preferences Related to Their Personal Value Orientations?

Pubblicato online: 31 May 2022
Pagine: 34 - 62

Astratto

Abstract

Objectives: In order to increase corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities with organizations, the support of employees in times of climate change is crucial: employees with CSR awareness of sustainability and their subsequent extra-role work behavior are an asset to an organization. Sustainable HRM promotes sustainable employee behavior. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between personal values orientations and internal CSR preferences which increase subsequent sustainable employee behavior fostered by sustainable HRM practices. Specifically, our central research question here examines the extent to which personal value orientations predicts internal CSR preferences towards sustainable employee behavior. In this paper, we look at this issue from the perspective of young, highly qualified job seekers who have to face issues of sustainability.

Methodology: We conducted an integrative literature review of empirical studies on internal CSR and sustainable HRM. In addition, we reviewed the application and relationship of Schwartz’s personal values framework and employees’ internal CSR preferences.

Findings: The findings conclude that the relationship between personal value orientations of employees and their preferences in the focus of the company’s internal CSR is heterogeneous, as positive vs. negative paths between personal values and internal CSR preferences were identified. Further, different scales for internal CSR dimensions were applied.

Value Added: Based on previous studies we develop an integrative internal CSR framework (with employee vs. organizational dimensions) that could be applied in organizations to measure their internal CSR maturity level and be supported by the specific, sustainable HRM practices discussed.

In addition, we dealt with the question of how the connection between the personal value orientations of potential candidates or employees and their internal CSR preferences can be proven in field research.

Recommendations: Based on recent heterogeneous study results, we identify five research gaps and propose research design ideas for future research. Practical implications are also discussed.

Resources, Intangible Assets, Competencies, Capabilities and Algerian SMEs’ Performance: Strategy as Mediator

Pubblicato online: 31 May 2022
Pagine: 63 - 95

Astratto

Abstract

Objective: The object of this study is to empirically examine Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) performance through the prism of strategic management theory.

Methodology: We apply Resource-Based-View into our research to explain the relationship of a firm’s performance with Resource factors and firm strategy. Fifty Algerian SMEs from the northwest region are targeted and PLS statistical analysis is applied to produce valid results.

Findings: Results show a direct positive relationship between firm strategy and resource factors with a firm’s performance. A direct positive relationship of resource factors with firm strategy is also recorded. However, the mediator role of the strategy is rejected.

Value Added: Research on Algerian SMEs’ performance has intensified in recent years, but few empirical studies have explored the influence of environmental, resource, and strategy factors related to performance.

Recommendations: The study makes a compelling case for strengthening government intervention alongside national Algerian SMEs, particularly those belonging to the industrial sector. It is an intervention that will specifically target the improvement, or even the simplification of the tax or quasi-tax system, banks’ credit standards flexibility (financial resources), and above all, substantive managerial support that could allow our SMEs to manage their resources better and acquire and develop new ones to provide higher performance.

The Business Process of Small and Medium Portuguese Family Businesses: A Reindustrialization Case Study

Pubblicato online: 31 May 2022
Pagine: 96 - 130

Astratto

Abstract

Objective: To understand, through a concrete case study, the management process of small and medium-sized Portuguese family businesses in the face of the phenomenon of reindustrialization in Europe. In this case study we show how a company can react to the process by adopting a new management model, despite the factory being almost inactive for several years. The final idea is to demonstrate that this is a new reindustrialization movement, which does not perform in the same way as in the past.

Methodology: Considering that we want an innovative and continuously learning organization, we intend to develop from a theoretical point of view the European Foundation for Quality model (EFQM) and then apply the improvement and management actions in each one of its aspects in order to promote and evaluate permanent and continuous improvement. For this proposal we use the change and organizational development method.

Findings: Leadership is a topic with particular importance in this process of transformation, and in this case in particular, through changes in the shareholder body, generational changes and especially by the inclusion of the professional management team, for the improvement of the key performance indicators, including the EFQM score.

Value Added: The implementation of a management model will lead management to a leadership style conducive to value creation and results in terms of quality, and human and financial capital based on effective organizational performance.

Recommendations: Phased implementation, with the creation and development of pilot areas, is particularly beneficial to an organization’s culture, and also for engaging people via the cascading communication process.
