Abstract

This research was provoked by the apparent lack of a consistent information base for commercial office floorspace statistics for London. Each of a variety of sources seem to offer different magnitudes for the total floorspace stock. Beyond this we attempted to disaggregate floorspace figures by unit size, in order to ascertain a clearer picture of the composition of office floorspace and to assess changes in this over time.

Abstract

It is always risky to use the word auditing in the title of an article. People start to get goose bumps and look over their shoulder for the auditor's presence. No matter how many articles are written on the “friendly auditor,” no one really believes them. This article is not about being audited or even befriending auditors. It is about taking key concepts from the auditing field and using them to your advantage.

Abstract

In this chapter, the authors explore current trends in M&A deal structure, due diligence and post-closing challenges. The global pandemic has had a direct and indirect impact on the capital markets, transactions and market conditions, some short-lived and likely to return to normal as the global economy slowly re-opens and some more permanent as to how buyers and sellers and their advisors are likely to perceive, allocate and mitigate transactional risks.

Abstract

Purpose

To solve problems of overdue loans and bad debts, the research establishes the internal performance measures to monitor and enhance the operational qualities of the employees in the lending department.

Design/methodology/approach

The research utilizes the value‐added approach to analyze the lending production process and derive the internal performance measures to add value to lending activities.

Findings

Compared with final measures (data envelopment analysis, benchmark, and productivity measures), the internal performance measures proposed in this research would be more effective for evaluating the job performance of employees in lending activities. A comprehensive analytical framework that will improve the accuracy of analyzing a borrower's capacity and condition has also been constructed in this research.

Research limitations/implications

The conclusions in this research have been derived from deductive method. Some empirical study in confirmation of the conclusions in this research could be the direction for future research.

Practical implications

The practical implication of using internal measure to monitor the output quality of the employees in lending department is a reduction in the likelihood of employee's moral hazard behavior.

Originality/value

The past researches in measuring the performance of bank lending have focused on the final measures that are incapable of solving the problems of overdue loans and bad debts. The value of the internal performance measure approach would ease the lending operational risk that is one of the main purpose of Basel II.

Abstract

This chapter describes, both from a personal and historical perspective, the ascendancy and incumbency of Leroy D. Baca as sheriff of Los Angeles County, comparing and contrasting his leadership, ensconced in new age terminology, with that of his predecessors, Sherman Block and Peter J. Pitchess. Of immediate concern were his personal decisions, in particular the appointment of Paul Tanaka to be his undersheriff after many years serving as his campaign treasurer. What was considered a marginally functional merit-based promotional system was transformed into a political patronage model, with the attendant loss of organizational legitimacy and tarnished public reputation. The chapter will compare and contrast life within the “car,” as the term is commonly used within the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and life outside the car, through first-hand accounts, testimony from the Citizen’s Commission on Jail Violence, depositions, and published reports. Using the concept of representative bureaucracy, I will track organizational diversity as a performance measure, using the relative inclusion of all employee groups in the rank structure of the department and how each group fared under the Baca/Tanaka administration. In conclusion, this chapter will present different coping mechanisms utilized by employees confronting serious corruption issues that impacted them directly, and indirectly through the organization.

Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to analyze ethical issues and current trends of major college athletics in relationship to Black males in society. The focus of this chapter is on identity and how higher education institutions can cultivate a more balanced student-athlete mindset through images and representations. In addition to a review of relevant literature, a content analysis of six State Farm Insurance Cliff and Chris Paul commercials was conducted so that new knowledge is applied to the constructs of academic and athletic identity. Commercial and advertisement content analysis was utilized to address student-athlete life skills issues in terms of transferable attributes from sport to life. College athletics programs need to develop systemic and culturally relevant strategies that enable Black males to transfer skill sets developed through participation in intercollegiate athletics to future occupational endeavors. The chapter concludes with a recommendation section for education research, practice, and policy.

Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to develop a model of union reform that may help to revitalize the labor movement. Our model presents a path using democracy and militancy to overcome union oligarchy to build stronger unions and a stronger broader movement. We develop a new model of union revitalization by expanding the Voss and Sherman (2000) model from our own experiences and a review of past union revitalization efforts. Democratic and militant strategies are a key to successful reform efforts. Entrenched union leaders tend to oppose such efforts. Reformers must adequately overcome entrenched leader responses to succeed in reforming their unions. We have developed a new conceptual model of union revitalization. Our model should be tested further through in-depth case studies and analysis of reform efforts which have failed or succeeded. Our model presents strategies and tactics for labor activists to revitalize their unions and the labor movement. We present a new model of union revitalization that looks at both internal and external union revitalization. This chapter accumulates evidence across reform efforts throughout the modern history of unions. This comparative and contrasting analysis of the evidence from these efforts is a unique contribution to the field. Further, the resulting model from this review presents a unique focus on the strategies and tactics of reform efforts as well as the interaction between union reform efforts and entrenched leaders. This model provides a path for both future research and practical revitalization efforts.
