READING AND UNDERSTANDING ACADEMIC RESEARCH IN ACCOUNTING: A GUIDE FOR STUDENTS
Teresa P. Gordon College of Business and Economics University of Idaho Moscow, Idaho USA Jason C. Porter College of Business and Economics University of Idaho Moscow, Idaho USA ABSTRACT The ability to read and understand academic research can be an important tool for practitioners in an increasingly complex accounting and business environment. This guide was developed to introduce students to the world of academic research. It is not intended for PhD students or others who wish to perform academic research. Instead, the guide should make published academic research more accessible and less intimidating so that future practitioners will be able to read empirical research and profitably apply the relevant findings. The guide begins by examining the importance of academic research for practitioners in accounting and next reviews the basics of the research process. With that background in place, we then give some guidelines and helpful hints for reading and evaluating academic papers. This guide has been used for several years to introduce master’s degree students to academic literature in an accounting theory class. After reading this guide and seeing a demonstration presentation by the professor, students have been able to successfully read and discuss research findings.

Key words:

Understanding empirical research, supplemental readings, importance of academic research, incorporating academic research in classroom 25

They were interested in something that would support their systems that were based primarily on Microsoft systems. They wanted collaboration systems that would be easily adapted to by their employees. They wanted a system that would bring “real-time collaboration services, including calendars, schedules, workflow, virtual meeting sites, instant messaging, and virtual conferencing”. Their main system that they adopted, Teamcenter, gave them just that. It was easy to adopt, it was cost effective, and it supported the Microsoft-based IT infrastructure that they operated off of. It also provided them with the form of visual collaboration that they desired, CAD-neutral format. The Teamcenter system gives the user a “customized view” of product information. It lets the user, such as the suppliers and employees, see their work in whatever format suits them, even the CAD-format content such as graphs. It also lets them share this information across the world, bridging geographical and time...

...Case 2 I believe that Starbuck’s strategy has evolved as the strategic vision has evolved. As we know, the company's strategy had evolved from their vision statement. any company should have a goal, only then it could move towards their aim point, which is nothing but their strategy. Starbuck’s strategy adapted as the vision evolved, especially during the transition of being bought by Howard Schultz. The strategy had to shift from a small scale operation of selling beans and espresso roasters to a large scale operation with hundreds of locations that sold coffee beans & equipment while also serving café food to patrons. Coffee is the most important value in Starbuck’s strategy, so they are committed to providing their consumers with top-quality coffee that is ethically sourced, and to improve the lives of the people who grow the beans. The all employees in Starbucks are undoubtedly another value for the company. That’s why Starbucks has a health care plan available for all employees, a stock purchase plan, employee training, and employee recognition. A company can’t live without company, therefor Starbuck is really care about the connect with consumer and try to give them more good service. Starbucks management’s goal was to create the stores to be a place where customers belong and meet with friends. They do this by create a store ambience, having interesting music playing and so on.

...manager might say “no” if the employee asks or request something that goes against company policies. Case 2 1. What functions of HRM are similar to marketing functions? How can thinking about “marketing” a company’s jobs improve the strategic focus of human resources personnel? Case2- Two basic HRM Functions are selecting and appraising workers which can be similarly equal to segmenting customers and pricing products in marketing. Promoting your company as a basic need to fill a job hunt will draw job applicants like McDonald’s draw children in its kid’s meal promotions. The Human Resource department under Mr. Singh became talented prospectors who promoted all the benefits a prospective employee can enjoy by becoming part of Royal Dutch Shell. The good marketing strategy aimed at segmented talent pools can be structured to attract the best talent available before they apply at competitor firms. Mr. Singh’s plan was to attract the best knowledge workers as they become available to fill a rather large hole that was looming 3 years in the future. 2. If you were planning to use marketing strategies to “brand” a company as an employer of choice, what are some of the factors you’d consider? Case2- If I was planning on using marketing strategies to “brand” a company as an employer of choice there would be many factors that would be taken into consideration.

...Jim Wells, vice-president for manufacturing of the Northern Airplane Company, is exasperated. His walk through the company’s most important plant this morning has left him in a foul mood. However, he now can vent his temper at Jerry Carstairs, the plant’s production manager, who has just been summoned to Jim’s office. “Jerry, I just got back from walking through the plant and I am very upset.” “What is the problem, Jim?” “Well, you know how much I have been emphasizing the need to cut down on our in-process inventory.” “Yes, we’ve been working hard on that,” responds Jerry. “Well, not hard enough!” Jim raises his voice even higher. “Do you know what I found by the presses?” “No.” “Five metal sheets still wait to be formed into wing sections. And then, right next door at the inspection station, 13 wing sections! The inspector was inspecting one of them, but the other 12 were just sitting there. You know we have a couple hundred thousand dollars tied up in each of those wing sections. So between the presses and the inspection station, we have a few million bucks worth of terribly expensive metal just sitting there. We can’t have that!” The chagrined Jerry Carstairs tries to respond. “Yes, Jim, I am well aware that the inspection station is a bottleneck. It usually isn’t nearly as bad as you found it this morning, but is a bottleneck. Much less so for the presses. You really caught us on a bad morning.” “I sure hope so,” retorts Jim, “but you need to prevent anything......
