Gibson, Jane Whitney, Journal of Applied Management and Entrepreneurship


It is my pleasure to welcome you to the April 2008 issue of JAME.

The articles in this issue look at a variety of interesting topics including age discrimination, CEO compensation, employee motivation, collaborative training, and gender issues in a major corporation. We begin with an article by Dana Tesone, "A Collaborative Management Training Intervention: A Pilot Study for Small to Medium Enterprises." The focus here is on a training program offered in collaboration with the HRM office of a medium sized luxury resort. Results of the action research techniques used are provided in both qualitative and quantitative terms with implications drawn for practitioners.

The second article, "Wal-Mart and Women: Good Business Practice or Gamesmanship" was written by Melanie Spangler, Margaret Britt, and Tomas Parks who take us behind today's headlines to focus on the legal, labor, and employment implications of the Dukes vs. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. case. The case is huge. The nation's largest private employer now faces the largest discrimination certified class in history. Because of the enormity of the stakes in this case, the authors speak about its "transformative potential" in terms of gender discrimination and give us the background and historical perspective from which to watch future developments.

The next article, "A Study of the Relationship between Firm Performance and CEO Compensation in the U.S. Commercial Banking Industry" is written by Chris Crumley from Trinity University. It adds to the growing literature on executive compensation by testing the relationship between CEO compensation and specific characteristics of both the firm and the executive. In terms of the former, performance variables and size variables were studied while in terms of the latter, CEO age, job tenure, education and stock ownership were examined. Conclusions related to 9 specific hypotheses are given.

The article by Ian Wilson and Susan Madsen, "The Influence of Maslow's Humanistic Views on an Employee's Motivation to Learn," will be a ready resource for graduate students studying motivation and adult learning. The article discusses the impact of Maslow's work on past trends in employee training and present motivational challenges in the workplace while providing a clear overview of the importance of Maslow's humanistic teachings.

The fifth article, "Should I Stay or Should I Leave? Perceptions of Age Discrimination, Organizational Justice, and Employee Attitudes on Intentions to Leave," written by Courtney Bibby, utilized six different instruments and related subscales to examine relationships among perceptions of age discrimination, organizational justice, job satisfaction, organizational commitment and intentions to leave. Findings include the recommendation that management should be cognizant of the importance of employee perception in deciding to stay or leave an organization.

Our final article, "When Entrepreneurship and Ethics Collide: The case of Physician-Owned Specialty Hospitals" is written by Rachel Wilson from Middle Tennessee State University. When this article first appeared in our January issue it was incorrectly attributed to Wilson plus several co-authors who were authors on another article and not on this one. We apologize to Prof. Wilson and reprint her article here in its entirety. The article examines the potential conflict of interest that may exist between the physician owners and the services recommended and provided within their own health care facilities. …
