Studies of entrepreneurial orientation tend to examine its three most common features only (risk-taking, innovativeness, and proactiveness), merging these into a gestalt construct of entrepreneurial orientation and then analyzing its effect on business performance. This is in contrast to Lumpkin and Dess who stressed an entrepreneurial orientation is best(More)
Supporting agile teams from afar as they plan projects is a challenge. In this paper, we present a planning tool, MasePlanner, which supports agile teams as they collaborate in a distributed environment during their planning meetings. Combined with an audio link, our tool supports natural interaction similar to those found in collocated agile planning(More)
Computer-supported environments for agile project planning are often limited by the capability of the hardware to support collaborative work. We present DAP, a tool developed to aid distributed and collocated teams in agile planning meetings. Designed with a multi-client architecture, it works on standard desktop computers and digital tables. Using digital(More)
There is growing evidence of the public health and community harms associated with crack cocaine smoking, particularly the risk of blood-borne transmission through non-parenteral routes. In response, community advocates and policy makers in Vancouver, Canada are calling for an exemption from Health Canada to pilot a medically supervised safer smoking(More)
A criticism leveled at the marketing strategy literature relates to the dearth of conceptual, theoretical, and empirical studies focusing on the antecedents of effective marketing strategy implementation (Chebat, 1999). Moreover, even less is understood concerning the interplay between such implementation scenarios and market-based performance,(More)
An 820-Watt clamshell module was fabricated and tested in order to assess the feasibility of cooling future high heat flux avionic hardware via subcooled phase change. One half of the module was constructed from aluminum 7075-T6 and populated with 16 heat sources simulating microelectronic chips. The other half was substituted with a transparent plastic(More)
Over the last three decades a significant volume of academic interest has been evident in the market orientation construct. The proposition established from much of this research is that where a significant degree of market orientation is displayed by a firm, then an improved pay-off in business performance terms, other things being equal, is likely to(More)
Providing support for distributed agile teams as they conduct planning meetings is tricky. In distributed settings, the use of paper index cards for planning isn't convenient, as some of the team members do not have access to the physical cards. We present the results of an observational study where a distributed card based planning tool was evaluated(More)
Tendency to mimic others' emotional facial expressions predicts empathy and may represent a physiological marker of psychopathy. Anatomical connectivity between amygdala, cingulate motor cortex (M3, M4), and facial nucleus demonstrates a potential neuroanatomical substrate for mimicry, though pharmacological influences are largely unknown. Norepinephrine(More)
It has been suggested that there is a lack of consensus regarding the conceptual domain of cross-national studies. That said, the theoretical focus of such scholarly activities has tended to reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the field. By far the most significant contributions to knowledge in the area can be sourced to the international economics,(More)
