Marketing Leadership In A Knowledge Economy, 2018 CUNY Brooklyn College
Marketing Leadership In A Knowledge Economy, Myles Bassell, Sonia Lambert
Atlantic Marketing Journal
Often the most valuable assets of a marketing driven firm are intangible assets such as a brand name, intellectual capital, and the expertise and knowledge of employees. The new breed of marketing leaders understand that it is important for employees to collaborate and be engaged and that leaders must be agents of change, creative, ethical, and global thinkers who can create learning organizations. The research reveals that organizations that are going to thrive in the knowledge economy are those that have marketing leaders who can build learning organizations, encourage diversity, and ensure employees are engaged in meaningful work.
21st Century Chinese Art Market Boom, 2018 University of Pennsylvania
21st Century Chinese Art Market Boom, Ayca Deniz Ergin
Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR)
This research paper provides a detailed analysis of how China has become the fastest growing art market around the world. How did the economic development in China led the country to the top in recent years, in contrast to its Western competitors? What is China’s role in the global art market scene? What changes have been made, in a socialist system, to accommodate foreign investors and what future changes should be made to sustain its growth?
Through focusing on the correlation between economic growth and art market expansions, this research develops the relationship through referencing various quantitative and qualitative ...
Diversity, Inclusion, Access, & Equity: An Analysis Of Otherness In Cultural Organizations, 2018 Eastern Michigan University
Diversity, Inclusion, Access, & Equity: An Analysis Of Otherness In Cultural Organizations, Cheyanne Jeffries
Senior Honors Theses & Projects
In an American society that is increasingly more multicultural and divers every day, diversity in cultural organizations has been the subject of much research dedicated to ensuring our cultural institutions and their boards, employees and overall organizational structure meet the rising demand for inclusion and equity in our nation. The American Alliance of Museums completed a national report in 2017 in which they found that "museum directors and board chairs believe board diversity and inclusion are important to advance their missions, but have failed to prioritize action steps to achieve it", among other key findings that identified a complete lack ...
Arts Education: A Philanthropic Priority?, 2018 Colby College
Arts Education: A Philanthropic Priority?, Clare Murray
Through restricted donations, donors to private, independent not-for-profit US art museums are able to affect the prioritization of museum activities. Using annual data from museums’ Form 990s and AAMD survey responses, I test whether restricted giving affects a museum’s educational programming by analyzing the effect of restricted assets on education department performance indicators. I find that a percentage point increase in permanently restricted assets as a proportion of total assets is associated with a 0.1876 percentage point increase in education expenses as a share of total expenses. Through qualitative informational interviews, I recognize this impact as evidence that ...
Motivation Strategies For Improving Consistency In Live-Entertainment Employees' Performances, 2018 Walden University
Motivation Strategies For Improving Consistency In Live-Entertainment Employees' Performances, Anthony G. Ricotta
Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies
The lack of discrete motivation strategies to improve the consistency of employees' performances was the problem that instigated this research. The purpose of this single-case study was to explore the motivation strategies live-entertainment artistic directors (ADs) use to improve consistency in the artists' performances. Data were collected within an international live-entertainment company to uncover whether artists self-determined the approach to improving consistency in performance or whether consistency occurred from strategies developed by the ADs. Data were collected from face-to-face interviews with ADs and senior ADs and performance evaluations of employees, and then analyzed using Miles, Huberman, and Saldana's data ...
Applying Agile Project Management To Art Museums: A Proposal For Implementing A Generalist Scrum Master, 2017 The University of San Francisco
Applying Agile Project Management To Art Museums: A Proposal For Implementing A Generalist Scrum Master, Vincent Sulit
Master's Projects and Capstones
This capstone project examines organizational change, along with its challenges, through case studies in museums and businesses in the private sector, subsequently providing a possible solution for museums to adapt to the current global market economy through the use of Agile Project Management (Agile). I cite recent case studies of art museums implementing Agile for digital product development. This project proposal aims to introduce Agile outside of digital departments, including Exhibitions and Education, with the goal of developing better visitor-centered offerings from museums. This may be achieved through the proposal of a job description for a new museum position of ...
Artists, Debt, And Global Activism, 2017 Iowa State University
Artists, Debt, And Global Activism, Mark W. Rectanus
Mark W. Rectanus
This article examines how artists, activism, and works of art may contribute to a more textured understanding of debt in contemporary society and culture. The diversity of aesthetic practices and range of strategic interventions in which artists are organizers and activists are manifest in the Global Ultra Luxury Faction (G.U.L.F.), advocacy initiatives by Working Artists and the Greater Economy (W.A.G.E.), and alternative, trans-local projects such as the Arts Collaboratory. These activist interventions provide the context for an examination of how artists have seized upon discourses related to debt and finance to produce works that ...
Couples Sleeping Apart--Separate Master Bedrooms And The Impact On The Real Estate And Related Markets, 2017 Lipscomb University
Couples Sleeping Apart--Separate Master Bedrooms And The Impact On The Real Estate And Related Markets, John E. Crawford
Atlantic Marketing Journal
Sleeping is a fundamental individual human need. However, most adults fulfill this need by sleeping with a partner, a behavior particularly true for married couples. A trend of couples choosing to sleep apart has emerged in recent years. For reasons practical and personally beneficial or preferred, a growing number of couples are choosing to have a home with two master bedrooms--one for him and one for her, each furnished according to the needs and tastes of the partners. Thus, some homes are being built with two master bedrooms, others are being modified to have two master bedrooms, and new empty ...

The "Missing Audience": A Query Into The Future Of The Orchestra And The Potential Benefits Of Bringing Live Classical Music To The Community Through Informal Performances, Natalie Wei-Ting Chang
LSU Doctoral Dissertations
In this dissertation, I discuss the traditional organizational model adopted by symphony orchestras in the United States as non-profit arts organizations that are struggling to maintain solvency within the current philanthropic, political, and digital contexts. As part of the discussion, I conduct field research within the local area of the city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in providing demonstrations of live and informal classical performance in various businesses and institutions while collecting data via surveys from willing adult participants (ages 18 and above) of all demographics, specifically lower income areas. The survey analysis gives important insights into public perception of symphony ...
Forming Community Partnerships, 2017 Heritage Emergency National Task Force
Forming Community Partnerships, Lori Foley
In the event of a disaster, regardless of the type or scope, the first response is always local. For the institutions and organizations charged with safeguarding the nation’s cultural and historic resources – museums, historical societies, libraries, and municipal offices, to name just a few – building relationships with local first responders and emergency managers before disaster strikes is key to ensuring the safety of staff and collections. State emergency management agencies are also collaborating with their state cultural agencies to protect these valuable and vulnerable resources. The resulting emergency networks better position the local community and the state to be ...
Lessons Learned From Culture In Crisis; Or Protecting The Past To Save The Future, Laurie Rush
At the midpoint of the second decade of the 21st century, the world is experiencing deliberate destruction of cultural property at a scale not seen since the Second World War. Future protection and preservation of cultural heritage depends on learning from tragedy and applying these lessons as pro-actively as possible. First, we are discovering that no matter the threat, there are people who risk their lives to save artifacts and features of their culture, and the motives for this courage are retrospectively clear. For a community to survive a conflict or disaster as a corporate entity, elements of shared ...
Keynote Address - When Violent Nonstate Actors Target Cultural Heritage Sites, 2017 Dept. of Public Administration, University at Albany
Keynote Address - When Violent Nonstate Actors Target Cultural Heritage Sites, Victor Asal
Why would organizations attack or kill people at cultural heritage sites or destroy such sites? Using data from the Big Allied and Dangerous insurgent dataset that has data on 140 insurgent organizations from 1998-2012, and data from the Global Terrorism Database, this presentation examines the factors that make insurgent groups more likely to attack such sites or kill people at such sites. We look at the impact of organizational ideology, organizational structure and power as well as country level factors.

Informing Responders Using Gis And Gps, 2017 Cultural Resources GIS Facility, National Park Service
Informing Responders Using Gis And Gps, Deidre Mccarthy
Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast in August 2005 and created the single largest disaster for cultural resources that the United States has witnessed since the inception of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) in 1966. Notably, the NHPA created the National Register of Historic Places, our nation’s catalog of important cultural resources. The NHPA also stipulates that any federal undertaking which may adversely affect National Register eligible resources be mitigated. For the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Katrina created the largest compliance project ever under Section 106 of the NHPA.
Although causing a great deal of damage, Katrina ...

Opening Keynote Address: Using Data To Understand Cultural Destruction, 2017 Penn Cultural Heritage Center, University of Pennsylvania Museum
Opening Keynote Address: Using Data To Understand Cultural Destruction, Brian I. Daniels
Brian I. Daniels, Ph.D, Penn Cultural Heritage Center, University of Pennsylvania Museum.
Why is cultural heritage targeted in conflict? Under what circumstances? By whom? Today, due in part to the recent notorious instances of cultural destruction in the Middle East and North Africa, there is perhaps more attention among the broader scientific community than ever before about the phenomenon of cultural loss. At the same time, there are many significant data and analytical gaps. Little social science literature about cultural destruction exists and many critical questions—and avenues of research—are, as of yet, unstudied. A primary reason for ...
States-Of-The-Arts In Organization & Leadership Practices That “Make Sense” – A Poly-Logue In Three Parts: Part I - Embodied Senses And Its Making In Organizations, Wendelin Kuepers Wk
In the following you can listen into a dialogue between the phenomenologist Merleau-Ponty, other philosophers and authors as well as organization and leadership researchers and business practitioners as well as an artist. By listening to them you enter a conversational process of a con/ and diverging poly- and metalogue.
As a manifestation of a polyphonic practice, it offers an experimental and experiential forum, in which different voices do express ideas, arguments, and comments as well as where thoughts, but also affects and feelings or intuitive musings are emerging in an ongoing flow!

The Apparition Of These Screens In The Crowd, Trey Conatser
Greater Faculties: A Review of Teaching and Learning
To unpack some of our assumptions about attention, learning, and technology in the classroom, CELT's Trey Conatser spoke with Dr. Yuha Jung and Dr. Rachel Shane of the Department of Arts Administration. Jung and Shane have worked with colleagues to integrate technologies into their teaching so that students are more likely to be on task. What follows is an informal exploration of what it means to pay attention and to learn in the context of the contested value of digital technologies.
