The opening chapter of Advances in Business and Management. Volume 16 studies the determinants of the unemployment duration for university graduates in Spain. The results of these studies showed that the duration of unemployment was significantly associated with the graduate’s age, participation in internship programs, field of study, type of university, and gender.

Next, the authors utilize the empirically validated assumptions of two contemporary theories on team motivation (social identity theory and the theory on joint production motivation) to provide an organizational behaviour perspective to the jettisoning of Japanese management philosophy.

This compilation also analyzes the political struggle that took place during 1994-1995 in Israel’s Histadrut (General Federation of Labor) under the leadership of Haim Ramon that eventually caused goal transformation within the union.

The study in the following chapter aims to identify the impact of social media on the people of Bangladesh as consumers.

The authors go on to focus on recent changes in business communication in the past two decades from a sociolinguistics point of view.
Later, it is proposed that given the exponential increase of internet users, it is important to study how enterprises have been working and innovating their online communication tools, as well understand how they can improve the communication through these online channel, in order to cover increasing competition in the different business areas.

Additionally, this collection demonstrates that there are significant differences in manners of communication that appear to be a very important factor in making some organizations more successful than others.

The concluding chapter suggests a combination of a single cost-plus transfer price and the pragmatic process of negotiation assuming non-linear net average revenue curves.
