This Month's Highlighted Selections
Building Electronic Commerce with Web Database Constructions provides an overview of the topics that everyone must understand in order to create e-commerce sites that can display, insert, update, and delete data from a database. This book is set up as a tutorial rather than a theoretical reference. The chapters build upon each other, quickly laying foundational material on e-commerce in general, Web assessment, relational database principles, and HTML. Since technology in this area is rapidly changing, the chapters begin with an explanation of the concept (the architectures and approaches rather than specific tools). Thereafter, each chapter proceeds to a discussion of current tools and step-by-step examples that implement the concepts. (Book by NMA associates)
Cross Cultural Management and Negotiation Practices is about managing cultural differences throughout a country or organization, according to some basic principles of professionalism and open communication. One has to understand each individual and let people freely voice their opinion in order to maximize their efficiency and productivity toward the complex solutions we all face in today's cross-cultural work environments. Likewise, professionals need to have great management and negotiation skills while working toward the objectives of maximizing shareholder benefits in the organization. Cross Cultural Management and Negotiation Practices is divided into four parts and includes subjects that each can be a specialization of study in itself. (Chapter by NMA associates)
Gender-Based Wage and Promotion Discrimination in the United States Newspaper Industry: Do Unions Make a Difference?
The predilection to use gender as a basis for pay and organization hierarchical level decisions has emerged as a significant topic in management literature. Related issues are the theories of information dependency and gender segregation. The author discusses the theoretical foundations of information dependency theory confirming the importance of subordinates' control of resources, including performance capabilities. Insights gained through this study may provide business professionals with the ability to recognize and avoid the use of gender as a basis for pay and hierarchical level within both the organizational and managerial contexts. Unionism is tested as a mediating variable using factor analysis, ANOVAs, and MANOVAs.
