Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to audit the efforts made around the support of indigenous players within the Australian Football League (AFL).

Design/methodology/approach

Content analysis of the publicly available information on websites of organizations associated with the AFL was undertaken to identify the extent of programs and policies around indigenous representation, inclusion, and development.

Findings

The AFL, as an organization, has a high percentage of indigenous players (employees) in comparison to the wider Australian workforce representation. Largely, indigenous representation within the AFL is merit based, prioritized on an individual’s ability to play football at an elite level. The website audit identified a number of inconsistencies in the public personas portrayed by the AFL and organizations aligned to it such as the AFL Players Association and clubs. The findings raise a number of questions for future research.

Research limitations/implications

The main limitation is that the website audit represents a very small insight into the current situation and does not provide a depth of analysis into the circumstances around indigenous inclusion within the AFL. The audit also is very focused on one sporting organization which may or may not be representative of the sport industry.

Originality/value

The research introduces a number of questions for future discovery.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to identify how integrated marketing communications (IMC) was applied to a major multi-cultural sporting event, the Asian Cup 2015, through event ambassadors integrating the Kliatchko (2008) four-pillars model of IMC.

Design/methodology/approach

Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 14 people involved with the event, with questions designed to ascertain ways in which the multicultural communication occurred.

Findings

The four-pillars model is applicable in this case. Interviews identified that while the cultural and football issues being faced by the organisers introduced many challenges, ambassador communication proved to be an extremely effective process of IMC. The integration of ambassador communications overcame many cultural barriers with respect to language, ticketing and communication, enabling engagement of communication channels.

Research limitations/implications

This research addressed a specific multicultural event in one specific market. While providing insights into how this event managed its IMC programme, investigation into other events is required to identify whether similar results would apply.

Practical implications

The way in which the event incorporated community members into the IMC programme provides a strong opportunity to examine whether this approach could be applied by marketing managers more broadly.

Originality/value

An examination of the IMC conducted in conjunction with a major event has not featured previously, and the original way in which this event conducted its communications highlights aspects that are relevant to marketers in all organisations.

Abstract

The view is put forward that the effective sourcing and management of information is critical in the search for a winning business strategy. Such information will be secured from environmental and market analysis and will be matched with the company′s competitive advantage in the generation of strategic marketing options. Well‐managed information streams will be important in all aspects of the marketing mix as well as in market selection. Information will allow a company to decide on an effective supply posture to meet a market demand opportunity.

Abstract

The advent of space travel and long‐term space dwelling has precipitated the need for the development of Space Exercise Science. Because of the uniqueness of weightlessness conditions, microgravities, and isolation in space – special considerations for career planning in space exercise science must be initiated. The current trends, by many countries, to establish long‐term space ventures, by many countries, gives impetus to develop various new areas of study in space exercise science. The career implications for future exercise space‐scientists are many, including space nutrition, robotics, and exercise prescription and space cell physiology. Current Earth studies concerning radiation, immunology, and stress are linked with future space endeavours. Seeks to give an overview of current happenings in space physiology; and how these conditions transpose to create a new field for career planning in Space Exercise Science.

Abstract

Product management is a complex process: the effective management and development of products can be a critical factor in determining whether a company will succeed in winning business from the major account market. Four key areas in the process – product definition; product development; demand forecast and resource allocation; and cross‐over strategy – are analysed. The view is then put forward that by involving major account users in a joint product partnership, suppliers can achieve both product and company differentiation.

– Considers the challenges facing people developing talent strategy in global organizations and ways of overcoming them.

Abstract

Purpose

Considers the challenges facing people developing talent strategy in global organizations and ways of overcoming them.

Design/methodology/approach

Describes how to maximize the potential of a multi-generational, multi-cultural, cross-organizational, inclusive-talent workforce.

Findings

Examines the importance of: highlighting the value of people to organizational success; making the business case; ensuring that the whole organization buys into the concept; having an inclusive/selective talent strategy with equal emphasis on each area; making the chief executive the chief talent officer; joining up talent-management activity with business activity and other people-management strategies; delivering talent management well; and making sure there is involvement from all of the organization’s stakeholders.

Practical implications

Considers that people management works best when the interests of the organization coincide with the interests of individual employees. For the organization this, means achieving its stakeholder objectives. For the employee, it means satisfaction at work, a balanced life and visible career prospects.

Social implications

Advances the view that the focus on talent has rarely been sharper and so the concept of “make your people before you make your products” is important.

Originality/value

Emphasizes that the attraction, development, management and retention of talented people is critical to the success of all organizations.

Abstract

By the late 1980s, Japanese business corporations had achieved international competitive advantage in several industry sectors and the strategies of the Kaisha were frequently analysed as sources of good practice. In the financial services sector, such a strategy of international market penetration had led to Japanese banks becoming the largest in the world. By 1993, however, the strategies of the financial services organizations were somewhat different. Retrenchment was as prevalent in the 1990s as had been diversification and expansion in the 1980s. Summarizes these contrasting positions and describes a broad spectrum of business experiences for the period 1985 to 1993.

Abstract

Purpose

This article addresses important policy issues raised in the latest Lehman dispute that directly impact the over the counter derivatives market and market participants, specifically in regards to the history and purpose of the Bankruptcy Code’s “safe harbor” provisions for swap agreements.

Design/methodology/approach

By examining the background of, and arguments presented in, the ongoing adversary proceeding, Moore Macro Fund, LP v. Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., and the related bankruptcy case, in re Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. the authors offer their interpretations of the scope and intent of the applicable safe harbor provisions concerning set-off rights in the context of terminating swap agreements.

Findings

Parties to ISDA agreements should carefully monitor this case, as the outcome could shape the enforceability of the Bankruptcy Code and the strategic analysis of counterparties following a counterparty’s or credit support provider’s bankruptcy.

Practical implications

Parties must also be cautious when assuming all contractual provisions in industry-standard master agreements will be enforceable. This case confirms that contractual provisions seeming to reflect the intent of the parties may still be called into question before a court.

Originality/value

Litigation analysis and practical advice on the ongoing changes to the physical, futures and derivatives markets from experienced derivatives/structured products and bankruptcy/commercial restructuring lawyers.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to present an extended book review of “The Physical University”.

Design/methodology/approach

This article takes the form of a literature review focusing on one title.

Findings

This is an uneven collection of fragments of conventional late twentieth-century thinking about the physical campus. The future of the physical university, the campus is in doubt. Yet, only two of the dozen authors engage in this existential question.

Originality/value

The collection of articles ranges from purely philosophical to moderately practical. It is a poor summary of current thought and offers little guidance for dealing with the evolving future of the physical university.
