ABSTRACT

The purpose of this paper is to discuss about Information Systems Offshore outsourcing motivations and risks, having in mind different theories. In this order we have carried out a review of the literature. We can use different theories to do research in Information Systems Offshore Outsourcing, and some of them have been used extensively in the outsourcing area, but others haven’t been employed and should been considered.
KEYWORDS: Information Systems, Outsourcing, Offshore.

ABSTRACT

The main objective of this study is to analyse the importance of personal values on ecological behaviour related to the climate change, in Spain and Portugal. Regarding personal values, we considered five types, namely, altruistic values, egoistic values, change values, traditional values and values of good character, based on the Schwartz ‘ scale (1992 and 1994). The ecological awareness and the ecological commitment were analysed based on the environmental concern, the affective commitment, the verbal and the real. To make the empirical study, 848 valid questionnaires in several regions of the two countries were collected. Using structural equation modeling, this study shows that personnel values influence, directly and indirectly, the ecological behaviour, and the attitudes and the intentions provide a mediating role between personal values and specific behaviours.
KEYWORDS: Ecological behaviour and personnel values

ABSTRACT

This article addresses the effectiveness of teaching the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) using a business simulator for testing a set of hypotheses about the influence of simulation on the students’ understanding of this management system. This experience with undergraduate students was specifically designed to promote learning the BSC. Up to now a growing number of organizations around the world are using the BSC to define, implement and manage strategy. Nonetheless, some studies points out problems and limitations associated with its implementation and use, part because it seems that managers do not understand the fairly independence of measures and perspectives and do not always mirror the recommended cause-and-effect logic included in the systems perspective of the BSC approach. Our findings, based on student feedback and assessment, showed that the simulation significantly enhanced the understanding of the BSC concepts related to the strategic management and double-loop learning processes and the systems perspective.

ABSTRACT

As long as students use Web 2.0 tools extensively for social purposes, professors have the opportunity to improve students’ engagement in Higher Education by adopting these services in their teaching activities. Nevertheless, the final success of these attempts depends upon the reactions and acceptance of users towards e-learning using Web 2.0.
This paper aims to study the role of different variables relating the learning experience of the students within a technology acceptance model for a personal learning environment based on Web 2.0 tools. In addition the study analyse the moderating role of Need for Cognition (NFC).
The results indicate that the model proposed has a high explanatory power of the intention to use (BIU) this technology. Also, NFC presents a relevant moderating role explaining the main dependent variable of the TAM (BIU), particularly for students with high NFC.
