Social Entrepreneurship, An International Perspective  [PDF]
Jol Stoffers, Agus Gunawan, Anne Kleefstra
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2018.610002
Abstract: Entrepreneurship is an age-old concept, but the recent years have seen several varieties on the traditional entrepreneur. Take, for instance, the independent professional. The common denominator among all of these different types of entrepreneurs is their personal objectives and vision. This paper zooms in on one specific type: the social entrepreneur. This entrepreneur’s primary goal is to generate and realise solutions for social issues. The organisation run by the social entrepreneur justifies its existence by their ideas, ardour and compassion. Social entrepreneurship is often associated with young change-makers who are idealist. Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) surveys in 58 countries show that it is the case in Middle East and North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, and Western Europe. However, it is not the case in Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, South-East Asia, Australia, and the United States of America [1]. This paper will explore the meaning of the concept of social entrepreneurship, the social entrepreneur’s characteristics, the new working formats that facilitate social entrepreneurship, the power of networking, the positioning of social entrepreneurship, and its organisational design.

Yunluan Chen
Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2019.72052
Abstract: Business ethics is crucial to corporates’ subsistence and development. Many corporates have considered ethical factors on their operation strategies. This paper is to judge Takata actions in the exploding airbags events whether ethical or not by Deontology as the ethical theory. Takata’s actions are analyzed mainly whether these conform to three principles of the Categorical Imperatives and detail their business operating issues. We conclude that Takata’s actions are not ethical since they isolate theories of duty. In order to operate ethically, corporations could design a better reporting system in the specific industry and reinforce the responsible law to be held responsible to individuals.

Business Process Models for Integrated Supply Chain Planning in Open Business Environment  [PDF]
Hanil Jeong, Hyunbo Cho, Albert Jones, Seongjun Lee, Seokcheon Lee
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2012.51001
Abstract: With advances of several enabling technologies such as web services, ontology, and semantic web, the business envi- ronments are shifting to an open business environment where business applications autonomously share information and coordinate decisions with each other without any human intervention. This open business environment provides supply chains with the opportunity to generate executable supply chain plans, mitigating the inefficiencies of traditional supply chains such as bullwhip effect that is caused by the lack of information sharing. This paper aims to develop business process models that reflect realistic business scenarios and enable integrated supply chain planning in the open business environment. For this purpose, we first classify business patterns based on the types of “request for quotation,” and then business process models are developed for the business patterns using BPMN V1.1.

The present study aims to inquire the PV field in Romania further, by researching the currently implemented and the future business models of firms producing solar energy. Using the Delphi method based on questionnaires and interviews with experts of this field, this paper shows the key elements of business models in the PV field that reflect the companies’ practices and future trends and expectations regarding the internal activity of the firm and the environmental changes from the external environment of the company, which influence the directions of the PV domain. The relevance of this study is based on the importance of the applied PV business model elements in order to ensure the survival and expansion of the company in a dynamic field that faces continuous legal, economic and technological changes and challenges. The results of this study have some directions that could be applied in most of the European countries where the PV industry is developing.
