  • The millionaire friend-to-friend fundraising   Order a copy of this article
    by Luis Vasconcellos, Cristiane Biazzin, Fernando Coelho, Alexandre Oliveira 
    Abstract: The case portrays a real dilemma experienced by Alexandre, founder of the 4th largest Brazilian social mobilisation movement for health called VemPraGuerra He joined efforts with his brother and a friend (both resident doctors) to structure a project during the first half of 2020. Amid the Covid-19 medical supplies shortage, they were able to gather R$ 6 million (about US$ 1.2 million at that time). This funding was summoned to assist Hospital das Clinicas de Sao Paulo, the largest Brazilian health complex. The case study contributes to the currently scarce body of knowledge devoted to teaching stakeholder theory. It is an applied example of social entrepreneurship, the promotion of social change, and the contemporaneity of the Covid-19 pandemic.

  • How Public Policies Shape Entrepreneurial Ecosystems   Order a copy of this article
    by Karim Elias Helou, Michael Neubert 
    Abstract: Public policies increasingly focus on the development of entrepreneurial ecosystems to facilitate growth. This comparative multiply case study explores the perceptions of 16 subject-matter experts about how public policies shape entrepreneurial ecosystems in the United Arab Emirates and Lebanon using Scotts institutional theory as conceptual framework. The findings suggest that public policies seem to be especially important during the creation of an entrepreneurial ecosystem. Public policies shape entrepreneurial activities directly as well as indirectly, whereas their regulative and normative components have a stronger short-term effect and their cultural-cognitive component has mainly a long-term effect. These findings have implications for public policy makers, entrepreneurs, and other stakeholders on the development of entrepreneurial ecosystems.
    Keywords: entrepreneurship; ecosystem; public policy; Lebanon; United Arab Emirates; multiple case study; institutional theory; incubator; accelerator.

  • Narrative inquiry: the pathway to teachers self-discovery and transformation   Order a copy of this article
    by Keai Lim 
    Abstract: This article exemplified the significance of narrative inquiry for conceptualizing teacher learning and motivation. It was crafted based on the narratives of my life and teaching experiences in China. To build deep inquiries, established educational concepts on self-understanding (Kelchtermans, 2009), cultivation, awakening, and transformation (C-A-T framework) (Connelly and Clandinin, 1994), and emotion and experience of exclusion (Paley, 1992) were used. By applying Bruners Pented Narrative Structure (Bruner, 1990) and the Three-Dimensional narrative inquiry space model (Connelly and Clandinin, 1990), five common themes were derived from these intertwined experiences and events which provided insights for my personal and professional development as an educator. These identified themes could be experienced by practising educators throughout their teaching career; hence, they could be used for self-discovery and transformation, an affirmation of their professionalism, and sharpening of their effectiveness.
    Keywords: awakening; cultivation; narrative inquiry; self-understanding; transformation.

  • Using a Business Case to Teach Students About Time Management   Order a copy of this article
    by Myles Dellger, William H. Ross, Randika Eramudugoda 
    Abstract: This teaching case study recounts Effective Time Management (ETM) challenges faced by a new employee at a large kitchen and plumbing supply company. Specifically, we recount how the employee navigated internal stakeholder relationships while attempting to achieve organizational goals. Undergraduate students in Organizational Behavior, Principles of Management, and/or Introduction to Business courses are asked to identify how various employees contributed to the time management challenges the new employee faced. Additionally, we ask students to analyze how personality, managerial, organizational, and cultural elements contributed to the challenging environment detailed in the case. Finally, students are encouraged to consider solutions to overcoming such issues in the workplace.
    Keywords: Effective Time Management; ETM; business administration; employee development; task prioritization; communication; stakeholder management.
