The paper provides a state-of-the-art review of several innovative advances in culture and international business (IB) to stimulate new avenues for future research. We first review the issues surrounding cultural convergence and divergence, and the processes underlying cultural changes. We then examine novel constructs for characterizing cultures, and how… (More)
An instance based learning method called the K-Nearest Neighbor or K-NN algorithm has been used in many applications in areas such as data mining, statistical pattern recognition, image processing. Successful applications include recognition of handwriting, satellite image and EKG pattern.
A statistical classifier called Naive Bayesian classifier is discussed. This classifier is based on the Bayes' Theorem and the maximum posteriori hypothesis. The naive assumption of class conditional independence is often made to reduce the computational cost.
Learning vector Quantization is a NN invented by Kohonen for pattern classification. This NN combines competitive learning with supervision.
Three studies demonstrated that interactional justice was able to attenuate egocentric bias, i.e., the tendency to regard a larger share for oneself as fair. Study 1, an experimental study of negotiation, showed that fair interpersonal treatment led to a smaller egocentric bias, quicker settlements, and fewer stalemates. Study 2 showed that fair treatment… (More)
The logic-based decision trees and decision rules methodology performs well across a wide range of data mining problems. It also has the advantage that the results can be expressed in terms that the end-user can easily understand.
Multicultural psychology has 2 related but often disconnected streams, namely cross-cultural psychology and racial and ethnic minority psychology (Hall & Maramba, 2001). We propose that advances in both fields will be facilitated if there is greater cross-fertilization, especially in methodological approaches given that proponents in both fields are… (More)
Three studies examined the effects of perceived procedural justice and the favorability of a group-level outcome on the endorsement of a group-level decision and the evaluation of the authority responsible for the decision. Results showed that, contrary to findings usually seen with individual-level decisions, collective outcome favorability was more… (More)
In celebration of the anniversary of the Journal of Applied Psychology (JAP), we take a hundred-year journey to examine how the science of cross-cultural industrial/organizational psychology and organizational behavior (CCIO/OB) has evolved, both in JAP and in the larger field. We review broad trends and provide illustrative examples in the theoretical,… (More)
