Framework Creation of Compensation Strategies in the Social Enterprise Sector

The objective of this research aims to create a framework of compensation strategy that is applicable to the social enterprise sector and create stronger understanding between actual compensations practice and media perception. Therefore, the focus of this study is to gain a stronger understanding of the social enterprise sector (particularly compensation), and the media perceptions surrounding it. This will allow for increased sustainability for organizations, and provide a strong stepping stone for new research within this sector.

Evaluation of a Sport for Development Program: The Case of the Pour 3 Points Organization in Montreal

Sport for development programmes have grown substantially given the increase in public awareness regarding sport as a tool for social development. An example is the Pour 3 Points (P3P) organization in Montreal, which offers training for sport coaches on how to foster positive development of youth in disadvantaged communities. To date only one study has investigated the learning experiences of coaches in this program, yet the organization has never done an empirical evaluation of its effects on participants and the context.

Business Data Analytics: Warranties, Recommendations, and Fleet Management

Using mathematical models we draw verifiable conclusions from a rental-fleet dataset. These conclusions help rental-fleet operators increase revenue, decrease cost, or improve other aspects of their business. We not only identify what models to build, but also implement them using rental-fleet data. Some example questions that we help rental-fleet operations answer are: 1) what warranties should they offer to their customers or purchase for their equipment? 2) what actions should the rental-fleet operator take to improve its performance in self-identified areas?

Integrating Board Tasks into the Board Attributes and Firm Performance Relation

As the corporate board can be seen as a type of group, scholars from the group perspective have found that tasks performed by groups are unalike, and the effect of group attributes on performance largely depends on which type of tasks the group perform. Based on the survey data expected to be collected from our industry partner, we intend to bring the idea of group tasks into board research and closely examine the influence of board tasks.

The Development of an Improved Model for Start-up Accelerators

The goal of this study will be to develop a new and improved model for start-up accelerators. These accelerators can be defined as programs that help start-ups develop their business model and acquire capital such that they can grow and thrive in today’s business environment. To create the new model, start-ups that are part of the Masters in Technology Management and Entrepreneurship (MTME) program will be examined. This way, it will be possible to find which program characteristics have the greatest effect on start-ups and how they can be improved.
