This article studies evolution of governmental support for SME development from the times of Perestroika until 2013. Guided by institutional theory, the article revises SME development in Ukraine and explains government actions through the prism of path dependence. The analysis is conducted within a matrix logic resuming the data by several periods of time corresponding to changes in the Ukrainian government and being juxtaposed to the main stages of the path dependence analytical framework. The study reveals main trends in governmental support for small business and main challenges remaining nowadays. [less ▲]

The last five years, Lubumbashi records the emergence centers of dialysis. We achieved this study to evaluate the risk factors of death for the renal insufficient patients and the economic accessibility to this peak therapy. A cross sectional study based on a random sample of 53 patients has been completed in 2012. The data is analyzed using the SPSS 19.0 software. A significance level of p < 0.05 and Confidence interval fixed to 95%. The Fischer exact test and the odds ratio have been used. The participation rate was 65.4%. The mean age was 49.49 ± 13.30 years old and 60.4 % were aged > 50 years old. The sex ratio 0.3 women by men was noted. 83% of patients was private versus other category (p<0.05). 66 % are renal insufficient chronic patients versus 34 % of recent renal insufficient patients. 90% of patients were diabetic hypertensive. The patients' monthly income declared was US$ 205 for 52.8% of patients, US $ 525 for 34% patients and US $ 750 for 13.2% of patients versus US $ 1, 270 monthly mean care cost. The deaths are associated statistically with an interruption of the treatment (χ²=9.30, p=0.0022, OR= 8.5) and with the irregularity of treatment (χ²=8.65, p=0.0032, OR=6). Africa in comparison with countries of other continents, to invest in advanced medical equipment is a salutary measure, but the majority of patients are not able to pay the costs of health care. Our results shown that, the dialysis became an ultimate recourse for the renal insufficient patients at Lubumbashi city but the economic accessibility remains a major obstacle. Consequently, it's important to subsidize the health care of these patients. [less ▲]

Historically, the luxury industry was based on family firms and independent creators or founders. Such individuals had a natural tendency to retain ownership, to consolidate their image and their traditional handicrafts and to protect their power of control. However, the industry has moved on to an industrial development logic, brought on by the increasing need for family SMEs to climb on the bandwagon of globalization. Lasting changes have been brought about by big international actors whose large and diversified high-prestige brand portfolios yield huge and still increasing turnovers. Sometimes, they strangle the historical DNA of those brands, threatening one of their greatest strategic strengths. [less ▲]

A l’instar d’une entreprise industrielle, l’hôpital actuel présente les caractéristiques suivantes, quel que soit son statut ou sa localisation : Il est constitué d’un ensemble de ressources rares et limitées, de nature humaines, techniques, financières et immatérielles (savoirs et connaissances), dont il doit justifier d’une utilisation efficiente (en clair, maximiser le rapport output/coût) en regard des attentes diverses et parfois contradictoires de ses différentes parties prenantes (patients, collaborateurs, autorités de financement, autorités de contrôle) s’il veut remplir le rôle de création de valeur sociétale naturellement dévolu à toute organisation. En terme managérial, son défi quotidien est de : Gérer de manière coordonnée des flux multiples (flux des patients physiques, objets des soins ; flux des médicaments et des traitements, nécessaires à la fluidité du flux des patients ; flux d’information, traduction virtuelle des patients physiques nécessaire lui aussi à la fluidité du flux des patients) dans un souci permanent d’efficience multiple : garantir le bon soin au bon patient au bon moment avec l’information suffisante, les médicaments et l’infrastructure adéquate, le tout, au moindre coût. Simultanément, coordonner en permanence l’ensemble des ressources humaines, matérielles et financières de l’organisation, et surtout motiver la principale ressource critique, l’ensemble des collaborateurs (corps médical, corps infirmier, corps technicien de support, corps de support à la gestion), en résolvant de manière continue les défis quotidiens d’une bonne communication interpersonnelle (dans et entre les services), d’une motivation individuelle alignée sur les besoins et les attentes de l’organisation et d’une parfaite coordination avec les attentes du patient.

Despite a significant progress achieved in the healthcare sector during last decades, we need to admit the fact that many urgent problems remain unsolved even in well developed countries. Along with other major factors, economic causes of these problems hold a prominent position. It is then necessary to think about a need of shifting from a view of hospitals as ever being institutions existing by default in any society to a view of hospitals as organisations with an incorporated economic mechanism, adapted to social changes and relevant economic risks. With this regard, this paper seeks to incorporate the concept of economic security of the hospital into Simons’ LOC model used in hospital management. We provide a brief overview of the concept of economic security of the organization. We adjust this concept for hospital management considering the healthcare system as an economic system and taking main problems of the hospital and interests of stakeholders in the core of strategy development. Further, we accommodate the concept with the levers of control. The result of the paper is a revised Simons’ LOC model which provides a theoretical framework for further research on hospital management and serves a modified management instrument. [less ▲]

This article addresses the theoretical concept of economic security of the enterprise (ESE) and discusses its features in post-Soviet countries based on a review of the Ukrainian scientific literature. This study includes an explanation of the specific conditions of economic and social transformation as well as of the developments in post-Soviet economic science that led to the introduction of the term “economic security of the enterprise”. This research intends to explain the concept of ESE in post-Soviet economic thought and discusses its utility for different stakeholders. The main research questions are therefore: What are the approaches to a definition of ESE within the concept of ESE in Ukrainian economic thought? How can the main features of ESE be defined? What are the benefits of the concept of ESE for a firm's stakeholders? Our study is based on a qualitative content analysis of the Ukrainian economic literature considering ESE. We conducted a content analysis of the definitions of ESE presented in over 50 dissertations defended in Ukraine during the period 1999-2011. This analysis allows us to identify the distinctive features of the concept: ESE is presented as a generalizing concept, in which terms such as competitiveness, threats, and profitability point out only one aspect of the phenomenon neglecting others. The notion of economic security of the enterprise has a complex internal nature that includes a variety of structural interactions among internal elements of a firm and its external environment, and thus we suggest to define the notion of ESE via its static and dynamic dimensions. Being a broader concept than other widely applied concepts (such as Enterprise Risk Management), the concept of ESE can be of special interest for business managers as well as public authorities due to its ability to propose a solid foundation for economic security on local, regional and national levels. In this context, the economic security framework gives public authorities a basis for policy decisions regarding the future of enterprises. [less ▲]

Higher education institutions have been actively attempting to integrate sustainability in their curricula, research, operations, and outreach activities over the last decades. Despite the efforts undertaken, it is currently still challenging for their internal and external stakeholders to assess an institution’s sustainability-related activities and the extent of their implementation within the different activities of higher education. Since sustainability reporting in higher education is currently still in its early stages, and because a holistic view of sustainability integration in higher education on a management level is often lacking, this paper researches possible contributions of management control to sustainability reporting and the sustainability integration process in higher education. The paper adheres to a management control approach by applying Simons’ (1995) Levers of Control Framework to the field of sustainability in higher education, in search for a theoretical framework for reporting and integrating sustainability on a strategic level into higher education institutions. The research stresses the need for a holistic approach and for further in-depth study into certain aspects of the control framework, i.e., practical implementation of vision and mission statements, the concept of materiality, staff development, diagnostic indicator development, and the study of stakeholder engagement processes in higher education [less ▲]

Background: Heroin-assisted treatment (HAT) can improve the condition of heroin addicts resistant to other treatment. A new trial compared HAT and methadone treatment with HAT limited to 12 months in order to assess its feasibility and efficacy in Belgium. Methods: TADAM (Treatment Assisted by Diacetylmorphine) was an open label randomised controlled trial. The experimental treatment was based upon the Swiss model of HAT developed in 1994. The primary efficacy criterion was determined by an improvement in street heroin use or in (physical or mental) health or a decrease in criminal involvement. Participants were assessed every 3 months. Self-reported data were complemented with toxicological analyses and criminal proceedings. Findings: 74 participants were randomised in the trial: 36 in the experimental group and 38 in the control group. The experimental group counted 30% of responders more than the control group at 3 months (p<0.05), 6 months (p<0.05), and 9 months (p<0.01). At 12 months, the number of responders was still higher in the experimental group (11%) but the difference was no longer significant (p=0.35). Street heroin use increased in the experimental group at the 12-month assessment just before the end of HAT. Conclusion: HAT is feasible and effective. However, HAT should not have a predetermined duration for heroin users for which heroin addiction became a chronic relapsing disease. Other data: In addition to the outcomes of the randomised controlled trial, the report contains other exploratory data and analysis: satisfaction of in treatment, criminological data, opinion of heroin users not included in the trial, opinion of caregivers and field workers (in the HAT centre, in the partner centres, and in other centres in the addiction field), impact of the HAT centre on its neighbourhood and a socio-economic evaluation. Funding: The TADAM trial was funded at 80% by the Federal Minister of Social Affairs and Public Health. It was also funded the City and the University of Liège. [less ▲]

Recent developments in the fields of research focused on risk management plea for moving from a silo-perspective (focused on a separate and cross-sectional management of risks) to an holistic and integrated view of the risk management function (called Enterprise Risk Management or ERM), in which risks, uncertainties and resources are considered globally as a whole. Despite the numerous papers focused on risks and risk management in firms, no specific study appears to be devoted to the strategies implemented in order to manage risks in social enterprises. Our paper aims to fulfill this absence and discusses the results of an empirical study that analyses the impact of the perception of the concepts of risk, uncertainty and security on the decision for managing risks in social enterprises.

Introduction: This article analyses the composition of healthcare costs for HIV/AIDS infected patients in a country with limited resources and attempts to identify the factors that influence these costs. The aims are to calculate medical care costs, analysing how they vary depending on patients' income, and to evaluate the factors explaining healthcare consumption. Methods: This is a prospective cohort study focusing on patients who were admitted to hospital for a short stay between January 2010 and June 2011, before their integration into a specialised program. The patients were selected randomly. Free consent was obtained from all participants. Data were analysed using the SPSS 19.0 software. The significance threshold was set at 5% and the CI (Confidence Interval) at 95%. We used Kruskal-Wallis tests, Fisher's exact test and multiple linear regression. Results: We monitored 209 patients. Their average age was 36.37 years (SD: 8.72). The sex ratio was 0.58 and the women patients were generally younger than the male ones (p=0.011). The overall cost of healthcare amounted to $US 41,922. The cost of Antiretroviral Therapy represented 21.6% ($US 9,045). The price of para-clinical examinations represented 46% ($US 19,136) of the overall cost. The patient's average monthly income was $US 157.40 whereas the average direct cost per patient was$US 201.45. Both monthly income (t=4.385; p=0.0000) and education level (t=3.703 p=0.0003) were statistically significant predictive factors for healthcare consumption. The medical care costs for patients with opportunistic infections were nine times higher than those for patients who presented none. The presence of opportunistic infections increased healthcare consumption by approximately 31$ US (CI 95%: 15-46.9). Conclusion: The average direct cost for patients on each short-term stay was higher than the average monthly income. To be able to access the necessary services, the patients need additional resources, which are derived from various sources. Monthly income and the level of education were both statistically significant predictors for healthcare consumption. The analysis allows us to extend the study by using different analytical accounting approaches such as by case and by pathology. [less ▲]

Since almost three decades, luxury houses have been tackling the increasing importance of groups and of private investment funds specialized in the luxury sector (Roux & Floch, 1996). Therefore innovation has become an important source of value creation and of competitive advantage for them (Chevallier & Mazzalovo, 2008; Kapferer & Bastien, 2009). Reciprocally, luxury houses usually demonstrate a strong intellectual capital according to the definitions of Bontis (1998). Although the impact of intellectual capital on innovation has been widely demonstrated by scholars in a general scope (Subramaniam & Youndt, 2005), the existence and the nature of this influence has not been investigated in the luxury sector yet. The aim of our research is to highlight if a causal relationship exists in Belgian luxury houses, in order to validate or invalidate the results obtained by Subramaniam & Youndt (2005) and by Wu, Chang, & Chen (2008) within the luxury sector.

Abstract : Belgian family luxury Houses are increasingly confrontated to a problem of independence caused by the growing influence of great financial groups and of private investment funds, on the one hand, and by a problem of image due to their Belgian origin, on the other hand. Nevertheless, their growing need for internationalization in order to counter the threats of the market and to seize opportunities leads them to concede one part of their control to institutional investors. The interest of this research is to study the potential impact, as perceived by the leaders of Belgian luxury Houses, of the venue of public institutional investors in their capital structure. We show that this perceived impact oscillates between sacralization and diabolisation of public institutional investors. [less ▲]
