    The moderating role of ethnicity in the relation between communication of the leader and LMX: perception of the employees of Peru
    (European International Business Academy (EIBA), 2020-12-10) Paz Aparicio, Carmen; Brown, O.
    The objective of this research is to determine if ethnic similarity / difference is a relevant variable in the relationship between the leader's communication style and the quality of the leader-follower relationship, in the context of Peru. Using a multidimensional model of the leader's communication style, we have identified that verbal aggressiveness and emotionality are the two dimensions that interact with the ethnic similarity/difference between the leader and the subordinate. Verbal aggressiveness intensifies his negative affect on LMX when leader and subordinate are ethnically similar. The emotionality in the communication of the leader favors the LMX with more intensity if there is an ethnic similarity. The dimensions of expressiveness, precision, questioning and manipulation of the impression of the leader's communication style are not sensitive to ethnicity.

    Unemployment benefits and recall jobs in Spain : a split population model
    (2013-04) Arranz, José M.; Muñoz-Bullón, Fernando; Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. Instituto de Iniciativas Empresariales y Empresa Familiar Conde de Campomanes
    We study unemployment insurance benefit recipients’ transitions out of unemployment, focusing on whether they are recalled to the previous employer. For this purpose, we develop a split population model of the recall decision by employers, since only a portion of unemployed workers is ever recalled. Age, qualification, contract type, previous tenure and wage levels, and the level of benefits are important determinants of both whether and when a recall to the previous employer is initiated

    (2012-02) Casasola, María José; Cardone Riportella, Clara; Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. Instituto de Iniciativas Empresariales y Empresa Familiar Conde de Campomanes
    The postgraduate studies give the opportunities to the graduates to develop skills and abilities to discover new business opportunities and to star-up their own business. In this paper we analyse the impact of postgraduate studies on the entrepreneurial activity developed by MBA graduates. We find empirical support for the relevant role played by the fact of belonging to a entrepreneurial culture family, individual personality characteristics (non-risk averse, creativity, taking initiative, teamwork skills). The paper also analyse the marginal gender effects that moderate the entrepreneurial activity intention. For this reseach a survey has been buit ad hoc for MBA itnernatioanl students of three Public Spanish Universities’ Master on-line on Business Administration programme

    A Fuzzy-set hierarchical classification of family firms
    (2009-11) Garcia-Castro, Roberto; Casasola, María José; Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. Instituto de Iniciativas Empresariales y Empresa Familiar Conde de Campomanes
    Family firms can be thought of as heterogeneous configurations where ownership, governance, management and succession are often intertwined. Previous works have typically used a partial definition of family firm based on one or more of these three aspects. In this empirical work we seek to clarify the definitions and typologies of family firms by using fuzzy sets qualitative comparative analysis (fs/QCA). Based on this methodology, we propose a hierarchical classification of family firms based on necessity and sufficiency conditions, including some possible overlapping among alternative types. We use an international sample of 6,611 companies from different industries and national/legal systems.

    Establishing accountability systems in organizations
    (2009-02) Martin-Rios, Carlos; Carlos III University of Madrid. "Conde de Campomanes" Institute of Entrepreneurship and Family Business; Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. Instituto de Iniciativas Empresariales y Empresa Familiar Conde de Campomanes
    Organizational control systems are a central phenomenon, yet despite their significance, research is dominated by top-down command-and-control approaches and contingent models of goaldirected behavior. This paper introduces and empirically explores the concept of accountability system: the set of norms and practices an organization puts in place to assess, reward, and sanction the work engagement and output of an individual. Data from seven organizations are used to explore whether organizations provide distinct, useful accountability systems for individuals working in complex, knowledge activities. The findings show that organizations are struggling to set up accountability systems around the notion of contribution what would help to direct attention and mobilize effort beyond the boundaries of hierarchical control systems.
