Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Diversity, COVID-19, and the competitive pressures as well as innovations in product and processing technologies challenge the capabilities of management systems in practice. The literature suggests that diversification (in all forms) can have a positive, negative, or even no impact on firms’ performances. This Special Issue seeks to examine the relationship between diversity and performance from a management accounting perspective.

We are also interested in contributions that explore the processes of the diffusion of innovations in the management and performances of businesses, the drivers of their adoption, and also the impact of new technologies on the innovative behaviors and performances of businesses.

This Special Issue of the JRFM welcomes manuscripts on, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Diversity and performance;
  • COVID-19 and management accounting;
  • Management accounting from theory to practice, and the potential gaps;
  • Balanced scorecard and its implementation issues;
  • Supply chain management;
  • Production management;
  • Manufacturing systems and MIS;
  • Quality management;
  • Facilities management;
  • Innovation management;
  • Sustainability;
  • Design management;
  • New product development;
  • Strategic management.

This study investigates the effect of ownership type (state and family ownership versus non-state and non-family ownership) on labour cost stickiness in companies listed on the Tehran Stock Exchange (TSE). The study examines the labour cost stickiness in state and family businesses versus non-state and non-family companies within a different environment with unique labour market characteristics. The sample consists of 151 companies listed on the TSE, spanning from 2011 to 2020. After controlling for industry and year fixed effects, the results of multiple regression analysis revealed that labour cost stickiness is higher in state and family companies compared to non-state and non-family businesses. This research contributes to the existing literature by being the first to investigate the impact of the type of ownership on labour cost stickiness in a developing country. Full article
