I was honored to be asked by Talya Bauer to write this article to highlight insights into the nature of contributions suitable for the Review Issue of the Journal of Management (JOM). Having worked as an author on previous reviews and with the new editorial board on our first Review Issue, I hope to provide insights for future contributors. The review article in JOM is unique in management scholarship, borrowed from longstanding traditions in other fields such as economics, psychology, and sociology. As such, review articles offer perspectives to the management field not commonly presented in other outlets. Consequently, review articles have the potential to provide contributions akin to valuable works of art. Although there is no formula for great art, there are characteristics of quality work that transcend styles, mediums, and time periods. In a similar vein, creating excellent review articles…...

Anzac Legend

...When the Australian troops were first sent to Gallipoli in 1915, they were prepared for an relatively easy fight and generally uncomplicated terrain. However, when the troops landed and the fighting started, they found out that in reality, the Gallipoli experience was rough, demanding, and both physically and psychologically damaging, and yet it was from the effects of these very aspects that the Anzac Legend grew. The harshness of the Gallipoli experience easily explains the origin of the Anzac Legend and how it came about - the difficult conditions making the troops learn of values that were essential fighting qualities for being a soldier at Gallipoli. Even before the Australian troops had started fighting at Gallipoli on the 25 April, 1915, it was a hard battle. Along the coast of Gallipoli, there were little places where the boats could land, and when they finally did, Source 1 states that the troops had get past beaches that were tangled with barbed wire; then, as can be seen in Source 2, ascend the steep hills which were mined, rocky and scrub-covered - much different from the "...gentle slopes which they had been briefed to expect" (L7, Source 2). Additionally, the entire time the Australians were subjected to continuous attacks from their enemies - "...snipers deliberately picking off every officer who...lead his men" (LL4-6, Source 4) - which made the treacherous climb up the prohibitive terrain even more difficult. The Anzac Legend was born from the values...

Quileute Legend

...QUILEUTE LEGEND According to the Quileute Native American Tribe, they were created from wolves. This Quileute Legend is known as their Creation Myth or story where a traveling transmuter named K’wa’iti changed the first wolf he came accross in his travels into a person, thus creating the first member of the Quileute tribe. The Quileute Legend inspired writer Stephenie Meyer in the authoring of her Twilight Saga. The conflict between “The Cold Ones” Vampire and the Shape-Shifting Wolves or Werewolves creates a classic theme of Good vs Evil which lends itself to an enjoyable story. K’wa’iti is one with many names Dokibatt, the Transformer or Changer. In Quileute Legend he is often referred to as the Trickster. Trickster tales are found throughout many Native American tribes. In these tales, the trickster can perform tricks often attributed to having supernatural powers. Perhaps, it is just illusion rather than some divine power he is able to come back from the dead, shape-shift at times, and perform tasks similar to the creator of all things. But, if it is just illusion then why does the beaver now have a paddle tail? The trickster is an similar to a performing magician, using his powers he is able to create and make permanent the illusion. K’wa’iti does not follow the rules of the nature, many times maliciously, however generally there is a positive outcome of his meddling. His rule breaking ways take the form of thievery and tricks. K’wa’iti can be smart at...

Legend of Sinukuan

...Sinukuan: More than Just a Legend The Filipinos are richly endowed with a creative imagination. A perfect manifestation of this is the existence our rich ethnic literature, ranging from folk speeches and songs to narratives. In almost every province, there are native epics and legends. In recent accounts, according to National Artist Virgilio S. Almario, there are 28 documented Filipino epics. Biag ni Lam-ang of the Ilocanos, Alim and the Hudhuds of the Ifugaos, the Diawot in Mansaka, Guman Dumalinao of the Suban-ons are just few examples of these epics. As for legends, we have the Legend of Mt. Mayon, the Legend of the Banana, The Legend of the Pineapple, The Legend of the Makahiya, the Legend of the Frog among others. Ancient Filipinos search for explanations for natural phenomena and their closely knit relations with nature have ignited their imaginations and led them to create legends. The Kapampangans are a perfect example of this. Mount Arayat, a mountain located in a town in Pampanga with the same name has aroused the imagination of ancient Kapampangans to create the legend of Sinukuan. Mount Arayat, also known as Mount Sinucuan of Arayat, is a dormant volcano whose last eruption dates back some 500,000 years ago. According to the theory of Fray Martin de Zuniga, this mountain which is visible from Manila Bay, was created by a giant whirlpool at the beginning of time. Old Kapampangan folklore says that it used to be located in the present site of the...

Sachin

...End of an era & my childhood Whatever comes to life, has to come to an end. We all have learnt that the end is inevitable. But, still we fear it, don't we? I ran a few errands during the day & now that I have some quiet time with myself, I am thinking about something, which was, for me, the news of the day. Yes, the RETIREMENT! I knew it had to happen someday, but still eyes are filled with tears. Why do you spread this numbness, Sachin? I, like many other kids in India & probably all over the cricketing world, grew up watching him bat, watching him take on legendary bowlers, watching him destroy their careers, watching him break all those records, and most importantly watching him create madness about the game in the entire nation. To me, he is a combo of talent, persistence, patience, hard work, and innumerable such qualities. As I grew up, everything around me changed: schools, colleges, friends, people, virtually everything. But there was one parameter which was constant in life, it never changed. Sachin! His century was a solution to everything, from bad performance in a test to fight with a friend. His runs were our runs. With Sachin gone, Cricket definitely won't be the same. I won't stop taking interest in the game. But, many people will! I want to say sorry to Sachin on behalf of the media & the fans. They put so much pressure on him towards the end when he wanted support (he didn't need it!). ( FYI- I hate the fact that there were people who...

Sachin Tendulkar

...I was only 12 when Sachin Tendulkar first represented India and left a nation instantly mesmerised. I remember watching him dance down the track to hit Abdul Qadir for three towering sixes, and must have tried to do the same innumerable times, if only in my imagination. While I was still learning how to stand properly at the crease, Tendulkar was earning standing ovations around the globe; while I was still learning how to use my feet to get to the pitch of the ball, Tendulkar was taking giant strides. The more I played the game, the more I admired him, for it was only through playing that one truly understood the scale of what he was doing. By the end of the 1990s, it was as if he had ceased to be just a player, and now symbolised excellence. It was around this time that I started nurturing the dream of playing for India myself. And yet playing for India and playing alongside Tendulkar seemed two separate things. Playing for India would mean countless hours of toil, something I was prepared for. But nothing had prepared me for sitting in the dressing-room next to my idol. I was a bundle of nerves when I walked into the conference hall of Ahmedabad’s plush Taj hotel for my first India team meeting in October 2003. I had attended many team meetings before, but had little idea of how this one would unfold – and even less idea of how I would react to my first encounter with Tendulkar. Fifteen minutes in, I worried our chat wouldn’t go beyond the customary exchange of...

I Am Legend

...“I Am Legend” The plot in the movie “I Am Legend” relates closely to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. The first stage of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is physiological. For a human to survive they need air, food, and water. The main character in “I Am Legend” demonstrates meeting this need by hunting wildlife in one of the first scenes. He also searches other abandoned houses or buildings for canned food to add to his supply at his house. The second stage in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is safety. This need includes having shelter to remain free from harm. The main character meets this need by installing extra security features on his house. He installed metal doors over his windows and doors with extra locks to prevent anything from intruding. He also meets this need by having a variety of weapons available, which he carries with him anywhere he goes. The third stage in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is love and belonging. The main character struggled with meeting this need in the movie. He had his dog as a companion, whom he spoke to as if he were human. He also staged manikins in different places throughout the city and talked to them as if they were alive. There were several scenes where he would broadcast in the hopes of letting others know where he could be found if they were seeking shelter. The fourth stage in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is self-esteem. The main character also struggled with this need. Before the epidemic he had a very powerful position in his career.......

A Legend

...Is it possible to call Michael Jackson a legend by taking an extensive look at the goals he reached throughout his career? Through almost all his life he has been in the public eye. Michael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana. At the young age of four Michael took part in a musical group called the Jackson Five, which consisted of his four older brothers. He became their lead vocalist, imitating the styles of James Brown. Though onstage Michael was seemingly confident, offstage he was introverted and shy. The Jackson Five was signed on to Motown Record at the end of 1968. The song entitled "I Want You Back" became the first of four straight hits. Most of the hits consisted of romance and love-like situations. Even though he hadn't experienced these, he sang them as if he did. This soul based group brought competition in the music industry. As an attempt to keep up with the pace MGM records released the Osmonds in 1970 considered rivals to the Jackson Five. MGM released their 13-year old lead singer Donny Osmond as a solo artist. In return, Motown felt obligated to do the same. Michael's first solo single "Got To Be There" was a big hit not only in the U.S., but also in the U.K.. His rising fame gave Motown an opportunity to make a profit from his popularity. They capitalized on it by pushing hurried album angled toward the teenage audience. Stockpiling on a number of unissued tracks, an album was released in the 1980's off of the success of......

Urban Legend

...Bloody Mary Have you ever been told to go in to a dark room with mirrors and chant “Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary. . .” and something bad will happen to you? Many people, including myself, have heard the legend of Bloody Mary as some people would call it the face in the mirror. The version I have been told was that if you go into a bathroom in the dark with a lit candle and say the words “Bloody Mary” 3 to 100 times, you will see her face. There are many possibilities that can happen when you upset Bloody Mary. It has been told that she will kill the person calling her, scratch his or her eyes out, drive the person mad or even bring the person into the mirror with her. If you had seen the movie Candyland or Urban Legend, perhaps, you would recognize the similarities to that of Bloody Mary [Halloween Web]. Teenage girls are usually the ones who call upon Bloody Mary, mostly summoned at sleepovers as a form of entertainment.  However, you might wonder why kids might want to call this chilling woman. It may be a safe way to mess with danger. People who think they have seen Bloody Mary have said that she appeared in the mirror with a 1700s-1800s style dress holding her dead baby. Her face seemed decayed and rotten and her eyes were either white or rolled back. Bloody Mary also went by the names Bloody Bones, Hell Mary, Mary Worth, Mary Worthington, Mary Whales, Mary Johnson, Mary Lou, Mary Jane, Agnes, Black Agnes, Aggie and Svarte Madame. It has been rumored that you can also...

Arthurian Legend

...Chloe Monahan Arthurian Legend Reflective Essay After reading about how the Arthurian Legend has evolved through the centuries and is still being studied and talked about today, it is interesting how a legend can be so widely known when people are still debating on whether it is a myth of has some historical truth. Some historians say it is a pure myth with magic and made-up fairytale characters and themes, but some believe that King Arthur might have been a real person. How can it be called a myth if something such as the Arthurian Legend became such a huge part of literature that people were dedicating their lives and jobs to study this myth and find its background? On the other hand, how can something that involves magic and religion, one reality, and one fairytale, in which King Arthur is a believer of both be considered true? In the Legend of King Arthur, the character Lancelot who plays a big part in the poem Lady of Shallot, is one of the most popular characters from the legend was not even introduced into the story until centuries after King Arthur was first written about. Knowing this, it means that people were working on and evolving this myth that allegedly started as just a paragraph for many years. The reason that this myth is said to be carried out this far is because the legend is thought to have been based on a real person. If it was based on a real story, then why would there be a Magician named Merlin who performed tasks that are not reality...

Steve Prefontaine the Legend

...Steve Prefontaine the legend Introduction Many people have never heard of Steve Prefontaine. These people are not ignorant, they just have not followed Americas distance running. In distance running Prefontaine, better known as Pre, is truly a legend. The people that knew Pre could see the passion and desire in everything he did. Not many people have heard of Steve Prefontaine because of his short life-span. He was only 24 years old when he passed. The purpose of this paper is to inform you on who Steve Prefontaine really was, and what he achieved as a high schooler and in his college years. Methodology When I was first given this assignment, my mind started racing on who I thought was a leader and a catalyst for change. Everyone started calling out who they wanted to do and slowly but surely every famous person I knew was taken. I was really stumped and started researching “leaders” on google but everyone who came up didn’t seem interesting enough. My AVID teacher Mrs. Swain asked me what I enjoyed doing and I replied with running and she brought up Steve Prefontaine. She brought me up to speed about him and it got me interested how he for the longest time he held the record in every distance track race. As I began researching about him, most of the cites said the same thing: He held the record in every distance track meet and died at age 24. So for a while I couldn’t find out more information on him. In the article “The Legacy of Pre still lives on” gave me...
