The present investigation analyzes how the dynamism of the environment affect the relationship be-tween the capacity of adaptation and the pioneering behavior in the companies of the tourism sector in Peru. The empirical study was carried out in 238 tourist companies located in the cities of Lima, Arequipa and Cuzco considered as a cultural heritage of Perú. Regarding to the results achieved in the study, the proposed model allows detecting a direct, significant effect between the ability to adapt and pioneering behavior, whose relationship is accentuated through market dynamism and technological dynamism, and is weakened by competitive intensity. This work contributes to the ex-isting theory and demonstrates through practical application the linkage of the dimensions of the dy-namism of the environment as drivers of adaptive capacity in companies in the cultural tourism sec-tor that are necessary to obtain advantages for a behavior Pioneer in an existing competitive market.

It has been suggested that talent management (TM) has a direct and significant relationship with a number of employee outcomes. This is while the number of studies examining the process of TM leading to these outcomes are limited. Therefore, the main purpose of this study is to present a new model for analyzing processes of TM and its linkage with several employee and organizational outcomes that are organizational commitment and turnover intentions. Additionally, the present paper involves a mediating factor (P-O fit) alongside a moderating variable that is, Organizational Culture. A sample of 510 employees were selected from different banks located in Amman, Jordan. Mediation and moderation models were tested through structural equation modeling (SEM). The findings, being in consensus with previous studies, showed that TM has a linkage with both TI and Organizational Commitment. Mediating effect of P-O fit was shown with both aforementioned variables. In addition, the moderation effect of organizational culture on the relationship between TM and TI was found. The study contributes to the literature of the topic by providing a fit model to explain the linkage of TM and a number of organizational and employee outcomes. Bank managers can benefit by being aware and implying TM practices within their firms to further develop company advancements and attending to their employees based on new HRM trends.

The study of entrepreneurship continues to expand as a field of enquiry and remains one of the most attractive realms of research in the field of management science. This study follows an evidence-based research approach and conducts a systematic review and meta-analysis on the entrepreneurship, management, and sustainable development in entrepreneurial firms working in the Middle East. The study has conducted a bibliometric search for outlining the systematic and empirical evidence on entrepreneurship, management, and sustainable development, and to examine the relevant literature from the particular domain, followed by PRISMA guidelines. Total of 25 articles were extracted dated from 2006 to 2020. One of the potential aspects regarding entrepreneurship, management, and sustainable development in the region was the introduction of entrepreneurial led family businesses that unlock the potential of the region. The rapid urbanization and population growth in the Middle East have put massive pressures on their environments. Entrepreneurship had a significant and positive impact on both sustainable development and management.

This study aims to examine the influence of organizational culture on employee performance mediated by job satisfaction and work motivation. This research is a quantitative research with a case study at the SME PT PMS Company in Surabaya, Indonesia by distributing questionnaires to 50 employees. The data were processed using Structural Equation Modeling with the Smart PLS 3 programs. The results showed that in fact the respondents thought that organizational culture and work motivation had no direct significant effect on employee performance, and work motivation could not mediate organizational culture on employee performance. Organizational culture has a significant direct effect on job satisfaction and work motivation and job satisfaction has a significant direct effect on employee performance. Likewise, job satisfaction can mediate organizational culture on employee performance where all relationships lead in a positive direction. There has been no research that examines the relationship model of those 4 variables which is intended to determine the wider relationship between these variables and this study provides an overview of employee behavior in SME companies and is useful as input in determining strategies, especially for companies to improve their performance.

This study explores both external and internal factors, contributing to the fashion-oriented impulse buying of Vietnamese millennials and then investigates the impact of these determinants on fashion-oriented impulse purchase. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches were conducted in the empirical study. It is found that emotion and hedonic value along with fashion involvement, sensory cues and in-store promotion respectively influence fast-fashion oriented impulse purchase. These findings help fast fashion retailers understand the impulse buying behavior of young Vietnamese consumers so that they can effectively elaborate retailing-mix strategy to boost the sales and thus sustainably grow the business.

In the face of global competition and the coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) pandemic, the logistics service providers (LSPs) are facing severe challenges to attain their logistics performance indicators. To continue in such a market place, LSPs need to maintain a dedicated integration relationship with their clients by enhancing client special treatment benefits. The aim of this study is to apply the relational view (RV) theory and the relationship marketing (RM) perspective to examine the moderation effect of special treatment benefits on the link between logistics integration and LSPs’ logistics performance (i.e., cost leadership and customer services innovation). Data was collected from 214 Malaysian LSPs, and analysed using partial least squares-structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM). Although the results show that logistics integration has a strong impact on both performances, further analysis shows that a high level of logistics integration has an association with high levels of special treatment benefits (moderating effect), in turn, maintaining performance at a high level. The exploring of the moderation effect of special treatment benefits contributes to the RV theory by incorporating the RM to reflect the moderation effect. Additionally, the study contributes empirically to the field of strategy and RM within the LSPs’ industry. Finally, the findings enable LSPs to better allocate resources to ensure more effective value-based strategies that emphasise on client special treatment benefits to develop financial confidence and maintain long-term dedicated relationships, so as to achieve the target outcomes.
