Foreign Currency Derivatives and Firm Value: Evidence from New Zealand  [PDF]
Hao Li, Nuttawat Visaltanachoti, Robin H. Luo
Journal of Financial Risk Management (JFRM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jfrm.2014.33010
Abstract: The benefit of corporate hedging remains controversial. While hedging could reduce the likelihood of adverse outcome, it will incur additional costs that may offset such benefit. This study provides some evidences to resolve the debate. We examine the benefits of foreign currency derivatives usage in 134 non-financial firms listed on the New Zealand Stock Exchange. New Zealand dollar experiences relatively high volatility so it is an ideal setting to examine whether the currency derivative usage could add value to the firm. Using Tobin-Q and other of its variants as a proxy of firm value, we find no evidence supporting the notion that the use of foreign currency derivatives can enhance a firm value.

Identifying Risk at the Conceptual Product Design Phase: A Web-Based Software Solution and Its Evaluation  [PDF]
Katie Grantham, Cassandra Elrod, Barry Flaschbart, William Kehr
Modern Mechanical Engineering (MME) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/mme.2012.22004
Abstract: This paper introduces a web-based application that enables engineers or designers to identify risks during the conceptual phase of a product design. This software application was developed based on the Risk in Early Design (RED) method developed by Author, Stone, and Tumer. The RED method demonstrates that risks can be identified in the early phase of product design by relating recorded historical failure information to product functions. Based on the concept of RED theory and current industry needs, the goals of a web-based RED application were defined. These goals are the intended benefits or functionalities that the web-based RED application would provide. In addition, a multi-level evaluation framework was adopted to determine how well the application meets the needs of various organizations. As part of the evaluation, a questionnaire was developed and administered to a sample industrial and academic user group. The results of the evaluation indicate that the web-based RED software application meets many of the goals to help an organization in performing product risk analysis.

Adel Al Khattab, Mahmaod Al-Rawad, Sliman Al Soboa, Khamis Al-Khattab
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2015.81003
Abstract: The recent events in Syria, Iran, Iraq, Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Pakistan have highlighted the importance of political events to business. Government actions, furthermore, are increasingly pervading all spheres of business activity. Since political events and government actions may affect enterprise performance, there is a need to take them into account in planning and executing strategy. As a response to the increasing impact of political events on business, a new function concerned with the assessment of country risk is gradually emerging in enterprises. Yet, this function is not without its obstacles. This study reports on the obstacles that plague the country risk process in multinational enterprises. In order to achieve this aim, interviews have been conducted with related persons in Jordanian enterprises, who are involved in risk management. It was found that the majority of Jordanian interviewees are unsatisfied with their existing approach for assessing country risk. This research has also offered suggestions for improving practice and offered directions for further research.
The Effectiveness of a Project Manager for Risk Management in a Career Education Project  [PDF]
Kazutsune Moriya
Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.58062
Abstract:


As a framework for the effort to develop perspectives for work and promote autonomous career development among young people, schools at all levels—from elementary schools to universities—are introducing and conducting career education. One result of these efforts has been that career education, which is supposed to be conducted systematically while maintaining a certain level of quality, is currently not functioning well. More specifically, the wide range of career education curricula and the fact that the method of execution is completely up to each teacher has led to inconsistent quality and a range of risks. To help address this, and given that career education itself constitutes a project towards achieving the education goals, this paper argues that using a project manager in career education—a role that has been entirely left up to each teacher to fill or provide—is effective in managing the risks involved in career education projects and proactively providing countermeasures to offset these risks.

RISK MANAGEMENT AND ANALYSIS: RISK ASSESSMENT (QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE)
VALENTIN P. M?Z?REANU
Scientific Annals of the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi : Economic Sciences Series , 2007,
Abstract: We use to define risk as the possibility of suffering a loss. Starting this, risk management is defined as a business process whose purpose is to ensure that the organization is protected against risks and their effects. In order to prioritize, to develop a response plan and after that to monitor the identified risks we need to asses them. But at this point a question is born: should I choose a qualitative approach or a quantitative one? This paper will make a short overview over the risk evaluation process also proposing a new approach in this direction.
