    Description: This study aims to explore the key factors that may affect the entrepreneurial capacity of students of Higher Education Centers (CES). Once the factors were established, these were grouped into internal and external to the ESCs, then the AHP method was applied to determine the relative weights of each of the criteria to groups of experts belonging to different disciplines and Latin American countries. Through the consensus of the experts, the results indicate that internal factors that most influence the entrepreneurship of their students are "Entrepreneurial Spirit", "Work Experience" and "Performance of specific courses" and as external factors affect to a greater extent "The Networks", "Friends" and "Scope of development". The results of the study can be used as an important reference for educational establishments, to define strategies based on these factors, which help to improve ecosystems within their centers, effectively enhancing the entrepreneurial capacity of their students.

    Description: This research tested and empirically analyzes the in uence of certain intangibles business on the export performance of manufacturing SMEs. Specifically, the proposed research model assesses the relationship between participative management, entrepreneurial culture and innovative orientation, managerial capacity and export performance. Considering the innovative orientation as a key in these businesses to compete in foreign markets, and export performance as a measure of competitive success, elaborate on how it affects promote an entrepreneurial culture, and how it in uences managerial capacity to conquer external markets. The technique Partial Least Squares (PLS) has been applied in 180 manufacturing SMEs. The results show that the entrepreneurial culture is a mediating variable between participatory management style and innovative orientation of the company and managerial capacity affect export performance but not moderate the relationship between innovation and export performance orientation.

    Description: The importance of management systems for the integration of CSR in the company strategy is a vital resource that has been little studied in technology companies. In this paper a structural equation model is proposed in order to explain the in uence of CSR and its integration into the management system of the company. This in uence is facilitated by the existence of previous standardized management systems, and how this integration affects the strategy of the company and if this is a reflection on the economic performance of the technology company. The study was conducted in companies located in Spanish Science and Technology Parks. On the one hand, model results shows that there is a positive, direct and statistically significant relationship between the integration of CSR and strategy; on the other hand, performance and integration has also this relationship. Likewise, the model shows also some indirect evidence relations between Management System before the implementation of CSR and performance.

    Description: The maximization of profit as the main objective of companies is being criticized from different forums, advocating for an economic system in which the achievement of social sustainability will play a leading role. In the banking sector, after the outbreak of the crisis in 2008, financial bailouts that have used public funds to save various entities have provoked a current of opinion about the necessary social role that banking companies must develop. In this article, a case study is carried out analyzing the role of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in ABANCA, the financial institution with the largest presence in Galicia (northwest Spain), which has been rescued with public money, Identifying a series of objectives and actions carried out by said entity. The analyzes carried out show, among others, the importance of trust and transparency, as well as attention to intangibles.

    Description: Integrated reporting (IR) is one of the latest innovations regarding sustainability reporting and non-financial information in the world. Although some companies began IR practices in the 2000s (Eccles & Krzus, 2010), IR has only been recognized since 2010 as the best way to get a complete picture of the value of organizations, overcoming the limitations of traditional reports (Eccles & Krzus, 2010; Jensen & Berg, 2012; Abeysekera, 2013).Our research aims to analyze this innovative reporting trend. To do this, we first review some practices in the annual reports published by the pioneering companies in IR, then, we present the antecedents for the current IR framework. Finally we look into the process that the International Integrated Reporting Council has followed to develop the framework, pointing out some milestones for the widespread adoption of integrated reporting.Our findings suggest that reporting practices have been ahead both from theoretical developments and institutional efforts. However, private regulators continue to have a major influence on the theoretical definition of standards that are intended to guide IR and the development of accountability practices to stakeholders.

    Description: The Protocol for Socially Responsible Territory is the result of a local sustainability management experience, which has demonstrated the importance of public administration in social innovation. This article describes the process through which such protocol was obtained, its characteristics and its principles as well as the strengths that this protocol offers. The definition of Socially Responsible Territory (TSR) is presented as a contribution to the theoretical development of a new research area, whose prospects are favored by the potential practical effects on public and corporate alliances locally. This protocol offers competitive advantages to governments who are preparing to seize the opportunities from the Europe 2020 Strategy for Growth.

    Description: This article presents a review of the studies on on boards of directors and corporate social responsibility practices in the banking industry. Several characteristics of bank boards, in particular independence and diversity, may impact their CSR commitments. By studying a sample of 159 banks in nine countries during the period 2004-2010, there is evidence that suggests that banks with more independent and diverse directors follow a path of socially responsible behaviour.

    Description: This study analyses the social and environmental research published in Spanish journals between 2004 and 2012. The main areas of concern of the Spanish researcher are analysis of Spanish practices, external publication, attitude studies and the different theoretical frameworks. There are also encouraging changes in the methodological approaches used, placing greater importance on empirical research with the conducting of field and case studies, at the same time as analysis of different statistical relationships, from interviews and content analysis, although without the features of cooperation and interactivity typical of dynamic, and innovative knowledge production communities. There appears to be some difficulty in getting published in Spanish journals, and generating critical social and environmental research is even harder.

    Description: The aim of this paper is to analyze the phenomenon of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the Spanish banking sector through social responsibility reports. Based on the theories of legitimacy and Stakeholders justified the use of CSR to analyze the behavior information about its environment. As survey methodology used content analysis, in particular are analyzed and compared the information practices in relation to four pillars on which the RSC is organized: customers, community, employees and the environment. In particular, it proposes a content index of liability (IDR) that measures the quality and detail of information provided. The study concludes that the community and environment categories are the most generally reported, although nature are social institutions (savings banks and credit unions) more transparent about customers and community is concerned, on the evolution during the recent years have seen that the transparency of information does not increase, but remains stable or even decreased as in the case of the contents on customers, in addition, we find that the contents are related to the internal activity of the company remains concerned about the most institutions to address the impacts of their activities as financial intermediaries.

    Description: El desarrollo de proveedores es una actividad que enriquece la gestión de la cadena de suministro, dotándola de mayor valor a través del aporte mutuo entre empresas clientes y subcontratistas. Este aporte incluye nuevas tecnologías, know-how, herramientas de la calidad y organización del trabajo, además de negociaciones sobre la política de precios, entre otros temas. En este trabajo presentamos sus conceptos fundamentales. Nos basamos, ante todo, en la Guía para el Desarrollo de Proveedores de ONUDI, que analizamos con detenimiento como material de referencia obligado. Estudiamos las etapas de un programa de desarrollo de proveedores, que incluyen, entre otras, las siguientes: análisis de los requerimientos de los clientes; selección de los subcontratistas; diagnóstico de los productos, procesos y productividad de los subcontratistas; análisis de las facultades de los subcontratistas para cumplir con los requerimientos de sus clientes; formulación de las recomendaciones técnicas; capacitación de los subcontratistas; aplicación de las recomendaciones; y análisis de la posibilidad de establecer alianzas y fortalecer las existentes. Examinamos los objetivos principales del desarrollo de proveedores que son, fundamentalmente, tres: lograr la reducción de los costos, ajustar la política de precios, y mejorar la tecnología, en sentido amplio. También dedicamos atención a las normas de la serie ISO 9000, que hacen referencia al desarrollo de proveedores. Tratamos con cierto detalle las dificultades del desarrollo de proveedores; las describimos y presentamos algunas herramientas para facilitar la gestión del cambio. Entre estas incluimos la educación y el entrenamiento, la atención a la cultura organizacional, la motivación y las recompensas, y el ejercicio del liderazgo. Finalmente, presentamos el resumen de cuatro estudios de caso, tres de ellos reales y uno hipotético, para destacar los efectos económicos y de otro tipo del desarrollo de proveedores; el estudio hipotético, en particular, ofrece algunos principios orientadores del sistema de desarrollo de proveedores, sus elementos motivadores y breves consideraciones para mejorarlo, así como posibles contenidos de un programa. El artículo constituye una invitación a abordar el estudio y la aplicación de estas técnicas, dada la capacidad que tienen para mejorar la ecuación económica de la cadena de suministros y beneficiar a todos los interesados en su progreso.

    Description: Micro.enterprises have certain attributes that distinguish them from large companies and from those that see problems when adopting principles and social responsibility policies. However, the principles of social responsibility can and should be integrated into any organization, including micro.enterprises. In this paper, we study how cooperation networks could be an appropriate incentive for the micro.enterprises to implement social responsibility policies, strengthening some advantages and mitigating some disadvantages that micro.enterprises may have when dealing with such policies, and enhancing, ultimately, the level of development of their relational and structural capital. In preparing the study theoretical model is proposed that analyses the components of these types of capital in the company, adapted to the micro.enterprise as well as studying the influences that social responsibility policies and membership of cooperation networks can have on these components.

    Description: In the past few decades a large number of studies have been carried out aimed at integrating and incorporating ethics into organizations, mainly highlighting the need to enhance ethical behavior within organizations. However, none of them makes any reference in their approach concerning the value which is generated as a consequence of organizational ethics, when not only several studies have been found supporting such statement but also a theoretical justification is found based on the perspectives of the Resource-Based View of the Firm and Dynamic Capabilities. Therefore, the authors of this study, starting from a model previously designed (Ruiz-Palomino y Ruiz-Amaya, 2011), have designed an integrating model as an attempt to link an ethical organizational culture to the business value generation by means of human resources. To be precise, attention in this paper is focused on the analysis of the direct and indirect effects that an ethical organizational culture has on the value job response of the employee. Discussion of the model, managerial implications and directions for future research are finally presented.

    Description: Here we describe the origins, evolution and classification of stakeholders. It highlights the relationship created between the credit institution as a social organization and its various stakeholders, analyzing the importance attached to them. The field work was conducted through a questionnaire answered by 57 Spanish institutions. The results show the sensitivity of banks to CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), with regard to the entire Spanish financial sector. Our goal is to analyze the importance of the various stakeholders: shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers, community and public administration for the Spanish credit institutions. Credit institutions focus their interest mainly on two interest groups: employees and customers. Transparency and open dialogue about performance, priorities and future plans for sustainability are actions to be implemented in order to inspire confidence and future.

    Description: Corporate social responsibility (CSR) meaning the active and voluntary contribution of firms to enhance welfare, is achieving a greater importance in Business administration as an intangible asset which management generates competitive advantages and promotes sustainable development. This work indentifies similarities between CSR management and Intellectual Capital management, this one meant as those activities which help us to manage the knowledge of the firm. Our aim is that firms understand the importance of considering CSR as a corporate strategy that enhances the value of the organization, and that they become conscious about its efficiency and efficacy.

    Description: The management of stakeholders is becoming increasingly important to the corporate sustainability. The engagement of stakeholders gives legitimacy to the company, generating trust and credibility. The enterprises that are seeking sustainability in their activities must know stakeholders, promote dialogue, meet the demands and expectations, and be transparent in the accountability for their actions. The sustainable company triggers continuous improvement and innovation and seeks for social acceptance to achieve success in their activities. In this context, our focus is on thinking about the main challenges faced by companies pursueing sustainable development through effective management of their stakeholders. We further propose the use of flexible tools that aid employers in decision making and help them improve the stakeholder management.

    Description: In the literature on business ethics a large number of studies can be found with a focus on establishing comprehension frameworks concerning the factors which make an individual behave ethically or unethically. However, the models proposed up to the present moment are excessively generalists, as there are no specifications on those factors which are presented as more prominent in terms of influence according to the empirical literature. The purpose of this paper is to develop an explanatory model that in addition to allowing a better comprehension of the main factors influencing on the individual's ethical behaviour. For this aim we review the most significant contributions in the literature on this aspect and raise a series of theoretical propositions which define the explanatory model. Finally we present the discussion of the model, thus drawing a series of conclusions and proposing future lines for research.

    Description: This study focuses on the structure of the board of directors that is considered more suitable in terms of corporate social responsibility, and also on those contextual factors that could influence the socially responsible behavior of family firms. Empirical analysis on 535 non-listed Spanish firms leads to the identification of three clusters in terms of the variables related to boards´ structure: family dominated boards, professional boards and immature boards. Results show that the firms that have boards' structure with more potential for a socially responsible behavior (professional boards) are the ones who are bigger, older and with higher generational evolution.

    Description: Numerosos conceptos se entrelazan para dar lugar al concepto de gobernancia de una empresa, tanto en el caso de las empresas cotizantes como el de las pequeñas y medianas empresas (pymes). Para que la gobernancia se concrete y sea efectiva, es necesario traducir sus conceptos en acciones que transformen la realidad de la firma y su entorno en el sentido exigido por los conceptos. Las empresas grandes, sobre todo si están bien organizadas, cuentan en general con mecanismos adecuados de planificación y control para llevar a la práctica sus acciones de gobernancia. Las pymes, por su parte, caracterizadas por menores recursos relativos, tienen grandes dificultades metodológicas y conceptuales para implementar y mantener una arquitectura de gobernancia. En las últimas tres o cuatro décadas, sin embargo, se han difundido en el mundo algunas técnicas japonesas de gestión que pueden aplicarse en la implementación y consolidación de la gobernancia. Estas aplicaciones, naturalmente, son posibles tanto en las grandes firmas como en las pequeñas, pero hacemos hincapié en estas últimas porque en ellas encontrarán un terreno fértil para la aplicación inmediata y fecunda. Esta aplicación, que permitirá realzar la gobernancia de la pyme en pocos meses, solo depende de la decisión de un gerente inquieto dispuesto a transformar su organización. En este trabajo, presentamos los conceptos básicos de gobernancia y su aplicación en las pymes, mostramos los rudimentos de algunas herramientas japonesas de gestión e ilustramos con breves ejemplos cómo estas herramientas pueden utilizarse para implementar y mejorar la gobernancia de una pyme. Las herramientas consideradas son: un indicador de gobernancia pyme, basado en la estructura –aunque no necesariamente los contenidos- del Premio Deming, el premio nacional japonés a la calidad; la gestión hoshin; y los sistemas de reuniones eficaces.

    Description: This paper analyzes the most relevant factors of organizational culture that appear in Global Manufacturing Virtual Networks (GMVNs). These organizations are formed by highly dynamic manufacturing companies, that may even be even competitors, which establish horizontal and vertical relations among themselves, and where it is not necessary to maintain internally many manufacturing assets but to manage and share efficiently network resources. This study of organizational culture at the network level includes aspects such as the similarity of cultural practices, social embeddedness, tacit knowledge transfer or the importance of trust in the network. By using the proposed theoretical model, it will analyzed the presence, under a systemic perspective, of homogeneous values and cultural practices where network actors can feel indentified. Finally, in order to validate the proposed model, the case methodology will be applied to one of the most successful collaborations of GMVNs within the aeronautics industry, the collaboration between GE and SNECMA to manufacture the CFM56 engine.

    Description: This paper analyses financial performance of companies considered as highly socially responsible. For this purpose, companies that compose the Spanish sustainability index FTSE4Good IBEX (as well as other IBEX indices) are examined. Two basic results can be highlighted: first, stocks of companies that are socially responsible earn returns on excess over systematic risk, making them investment-attractive. Second, they have a higher systematic risk.

    Description: La cultura es la suma de los comportamientos atribuidos al ser humano más los objetos materiales que forman parte integral de estos comportamientos. Si limitamos el concepto al mundo de las empresas, hablamos hoy de la cultura corporativa, es decir, del dominio del cómo hacemos las cosas aquí. Más específicamente, hablamos también de la cultura de la manufactura, para revelar aspectos de cómo una empresa enfoca el trabajo y las técnicas de fabricación, así como las actitudes generales hacia ellos. En este artículo presentamos nuestra perspectiva del concepto de cultura de la manufactura y los elementos que la constituyen. Exploramos, también, las implicaciones que estas ideas tienen para los gerentes de producción y para los gerentes generales. Contrastamos dos modelos: la cultura de la manufactura tradicional y la cultura de la manufactura moderna. Aunque no es posible, estrictamente, pensar a la cultura tradicional -o a la moderna- como originaria exclusiva de un único país en un tiempo específico, simplificando el panorama podemos asociar a la cultura de la manufactura tradicional con los Estados Unidos de las primeras décadas del siglo XX, y a la cultura de la manufactura moderna con el Japón de la segunda mitad del mismo siglo. La cultura de la manufactura es un sistema integrado, según nuestra perspectiva, por los siguientes elementos: la gente, la calidad, la gestión de los materiales, las máquinas y su utilización, los proveedores, la higiene y seguridad en el trabajo, el cuidado del medio ambiente, la organización y la ejecución. El artículo detalla las relaciones entre estos elementos y contrasta su lugar en las distintas culturas. Nos preguntamos si hay culturas manufactureras mejores que otras, y respondemos afirmativamente. Hay, en cada cultura, aspectos propios que la caracterizan, que si son marginales no permiten juzgar la superioridad de una cultura sobre otra. Pero existen, además, principios básicos -que mencionamos en nuestro trabajo- que distinguen a una cultura manufacturera superior. ¿Cómo promover, entonces, el cambio hacia una cultura manufacturera superior? Entra aquí el tema del cambio organizacional, que tratamos brevemente al cerrar el artículo.

    Description: Distinguimos entre educación para la calidad y entrenamiento para la calidad. A través de la educación, aprendemos la 'filosofía' de la calidad; a través del entrenamiento, aprendemos sus herramientas. Así, el aprendizaje es un concepto central de este artículo. Pero no es el único. Para que el aprendizaje sea efectivo se requiere motivación, y ésta depende de muchos factores, como el liderazgo y el sistema de recompensas de la organización. El aprendizaje es a veces solitario, pero más frecuentemente se realiza en equipo, a través de la cooperación, en un marco que llamamos cultura organizacional. La cultura organizacional también afecta a las actitudes hacia la educación y el entrenamiento para la calidad. Presentamos estas ideas y tratamos de mostrar sus relaciones mutuas. La educación para la calidad y el entrenamiento para la calidad (que condensamos en la sigla EEC) sólo tienen éxito duradero cuando se los considera como partes de un sistema que incluye a otros componentes. Finalizamos el artículo con un estudio de caso.
