Le programme universitaire Tableau Academic comble l'écart entre les besoins des entreprises et les compétences des diplômés d'aujourd'hui PARIS, 7 novembre 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Grâce à Tableau Software et à son programme universitaire Tableau Academic les étudiants et les enseignants peuvent, eux aussi, voir et comprendre leurs données. Tableau Academic leur fournit des licences gratuites de Tableau Desktop ainsi qu'une assistance technique et répond aux besoins croissants en compétences d'analyse de données dans le milieu professionnel. En effet, les données sont devenues capitales pour les entreprises françaises. D'après une étude récente de LinkedIn, l'analyse statistique et le data mining arrive en deuxième position des compétences les plus recherchées par les recruteurs, au niveau mondial et tout particulièrement en France. « Tous secteurs confondus, les entreprises ont de plus en plus accès aux données. Cela représente une formidable opportunité, mais également un défi immédiat, puisqu'il faut trouver des collaborateurs compétents capables de déceler des informations exploitables dans toutes ces données. » explique Édouard Beaucourt, Directeur France et Europe du Sud chez Tableau. « Avec Tableau Academic, nous offrons aux enseignants et aux étudiants français la possibilité d'effectuer des analyses visuelles et contribuons à combler cet écart en développant l'une des compétences les plus recherchées actuellement sur le marché du travail. » Une récente enquête menée par Alteryx, partenaire de Tableau, auprès de 500 chefs d'entreprise européens confirme ce besoin en compétences d'analyse de données sur le marché du travail actuel. En effet, près de 80 % des personnes interrogées ont suggéré que l'analyse des données devrait faire l'objet d'une formation obligatoire dans tous les MBA. En France, 37 % des chefs d'entreprise l'ont citée comme étant la compétence la plus recherchée et 87 % ont indiqué qu'ils proposeraient un salaire plus élevé à une personne qui maîtrise l'analyse des données. En France, un certain nombre d'établissements d'enseignement supérieur ont recours à l'analyse visuelle pour développer les compétences qu'attendent les recruteurs et améliorer les programmes des cours de commerce, d'économie, d'ingénierie ou encore de santé.  Des écoles de renom ont adhéré au programme universitaire Tableau Academic, notamment l'ESSEC, Télécom Bretagne, HEC Paris, l'Université de Bordeaux ou la Toulouse Business School. « Grâce à l'analyse des données j'ai des compétences que je n'aurais pas pu acquérir aussi rapidement avec des logiciels traditionnels tels que Excel » déclare Roxane Albert, étudiante en 4ème année à l'ESSEC. « Un outil comme Tableau m'aide réellement à analyser et éclairer des problématiques de manière intuitive grâce à une visualisation intelligente des données qui me permet de mettre en valeur certaines données et relativiser certaines autres. » « L'analyse et la visualisation des données sont essentielles pour ma future carrière. » déclare Marie Daujam, étudiante en marketing à la Toulouse Business School. « Face à la profusion des données, je suis consciente qu'au quotidien je vais devoir les utiliser, les analyser, les comprendre et les faire comprendre rapidement grâce à des outils de visualisation des données tels que Tableau. La data visualisation n'est pas seulement un outil de présentation pour moi mais surtout un outil d'aide à la réflexion, à la création, à l'imagination pour prendre les meilleures décisions possibles. » Tableau Academic est disponible pour tous les enseignants actifs et tous les étudiants actuellement inscrits dans un établissement d'enseignement supérieur.

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to further elaborate on the topic of standardization bodies and standards “wars” within the “market for virtue” (Vogel, 2005). This paper is a commentary on the paper by Zinenko et al. (2015) who analyze the fit between different CSR instruments at the field and the organizational level. Design/methodology/approach – This is a commentary based on secondary data analysis. Findings – This commentary reviews the implications of Zinenko et al.’s (2015) paper for research on the CSR reporting landscape and provides some additional insights into coopetition practices and the impact on organizations. It elaborates both on the development of marketization strategies and the impact of this “marketization” on what the CSR standards were initially designed for. Originality/value – This commentary provides six avenues for research, which are: coopetition between standard-setters, the influence of adopters on the development of standards, the key intermediary role of investors and analysts, the governance processes of standard-setting organizations, the role of the state in the arena of private CSR instruments and, finally, the disruption and maintenance of work linked to existing standards. © 2015, Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

Supply chain coordination and collaboration in general requires dedicated investment by the members of the chain in order to decrease cost, increase capacity or mitigate risks. Usual assumptions in the literature include predefined contractual structures, common information on capacity, costs and added value generated. However, evidence suggests that supply chain collaboration is not as prevalent as theory would predict, indicating that true decision-makers may operate under different assumptions. In a supply chain model involving a dyad we prove the existence of equilibria under which information asymmetry between supplier and buyer is preferred: the buyer will keep information about relationship-specific investments private. We use a Stackelberg model for the single-period interaction between two parties when the buyer has to undertake a relationship-specific investment. Both parties have outside options and the upstream supplier has the leading role. We provide closed form results for general conditions and prove under mild conditions that a manufacturer may rationally seek to hide information about the quality and the relationship specific investment costs from the supplier so as to safeguard profits. A numerical instance illustrates the results. © EDP Sciences, ROADEF, SMAI 2016.

This paper discusses the difficulty of controlling a complex project caused by the great number of performance indicators. The problem studied is how to allow project managers to better control the performance of their projects. From a literature review we noted several critical aspects to this problem: there are many dimensions for evaluating project performance (cost, time, quality, risk, etc.); performance factors should be able to be relevantly aggregated for controlling the project, but no formalized tool exists to do this. We suggest a method to facilitate project performance analysis via a multi-criteria approach. The method focuses on three particular axes for the analysis of project performance: project task, performance indicator categories, and a breakdown of the performance triptych (Effectiveness, Efficiency, Relevance). Finally, the MACBETH method is used to aggregate performance expressions. An application case study examining a real project management situation is included to illustrate the implementation. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Since American Airlines launched the first frequent flyer program in the US on May 1, 1981, the programs have ballooned in size leading to skepticism around the airlines' ability to manage both liabilities and members' satisfaction. Over time program changes have addressed a number of idiosyncrasies in the original model by aligning customer value better to rewards offered. More appropriate earn and reward structures were developed and clearer reporting standards introduced. In this article we review how the programs evolved over the last 30 years and introduce three typologies of frequent flyer programs: legacy programs, advanced programs and autonomous next generation programs. The article concludes that airlines operating autonomous next generation programs are more likely to run a frequent flyer program that is sustainable and transparent, resulting in increased profitability. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

This paper extends the literature on the taxation of polluting exhaustible resources by taking international heterogeneities and national tax-setting into account. We propose a two-country Romer model of endogenous growth in which the South is endowed with the stock of an essential polluting non-renewable resource and world economic growth is driven by a northern research sector. We consider the stock of pollution as affecting global welfare. First, we characterize the optimal environmental taxation policies. Second, we examine the impacts of national taxes. Their time profile determines the extraction path, the dynamics of pollution accumulation and that of world output. Their respective levels entail inter-country interactions by altering the efficiency of the world resource allocation, the tax revenues and the resource rents. We study isolatedly the distortional and distributional effects of local taxes. Then, we completely assess the overall impact of a unilateral tax increase. Finally, we find that, even if heterogeneous countries coordinate their taxation policies to correct the global environmental problem, their divergent strategic interests cause another global, non-environmental distortion in the allocation of the resource. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.

This article extends the recent findings of Liu (2005), Ang (2007), Apergis et al. (2009) and Payne (2010) by implementing recent bootstrap panel unit root tests and cointegration techniques to investigate the relationship between carbon dioxide emissions, energy consumption, and real GDP for 12 Middle East and North African Countries (MENA) over the period 1981-2005. Our results show that in the long-run energy consumption has a positive significant impact on CO 2 emissions. More interestingly, we show that real GDP exhibits a quadratic relationship with CO 2 emissions for the region as a whole. However, although the estimated long-run coefficients of income and its square satisfy the EKC hypothesis in most studied countries, the turning points are very low in some cases and very high in other cases, hence providing poor evidence in support of the EKC hypothesis. CO 2 emission reductions per capita have been achieved in the MENA region, even while the region exhibited economic growth over the period 1981-2005. The econometric relationships derived in this paper suggest that future reductions in CO 2 emissions per capita might be achieved at the same time as GDP per capita in the MENA region continues to grow. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

This research summarises the aviation CO2 emissions studies that use the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IS92 and Special Report on Emissions Scenarios storylines as GDP growth assumptions to estimate future global carbon dioxide emissions from the aviation sector. The inter-quartile mean and the first and third quartiles are calculated to enable researches studying climate change policies for aviation to use an average global baseline scenario with lower and upper boundaries. We also perform a simple meta-analysis to analyse the assumptions used to derive the baseline scenario and conclude, as expected, that change in revenue-tonne-kilometres and fuel-efficiency are the main drivers behind the baseline scenarios. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

In this paper, we develop a mixed integer programming model for a supplier selection problem in an international context. The main features that characterize the international supplier selection are first identified. We show that when operating in an international context, the supplier selection process should consider the following issues: several buyers' sites; inventory decisions, in particular the safety stocks that are held by buyers to cope with the delivery lead time uncertainty; inventory capacity constraints in buyers' sites; selection of transportation modes, each having a specific delivery frequency and a transportation capacity; and multiple products and multiple time periods. Then, we propose a supplier selection model that takes into account such characteristics and that is suited for the international context. Finally, we solve the model with the commercial optimization software Cplex and we perform computational experiments based on a realistic case study from the automotive industry in order to prove the solvability and the usefulness of the model. Sensitivity analyzes are also performed for a number of model parameters. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2011.

Agility is a major preoccupation for both supply chain managers and academic researchers in supply chain management. Yet, many questions remain unanswered about how best to achieve this operational capability. We study supply chain agility using the dynamic capabilities approach within the resource based-view of the firm, positioning ourselves from the vantage point of the supply chain manager. A survey of 171 French supply chain managers is undertaken and the results are analysed using factor analysis and a structural equation model. We provide insights by mapping the relationships between different managerial resources and processes and agility. These processes are grouped into three lower order capabilities: external, visibility, and internal processes. We show that external and internal managerial processes enhance agility. However, supply chain agility is not enhanced when managerial processes related to visibility are applied. Processes enhancing visibility across the chain, reliant on integrating Enterprise Resource planning and other software, tracking and tracing, reporting tools and web collaborative platforms, which other research pointed out as supporting agility, are found to be without influence on agility. On the other hand, external and internal capabilities are shown to enhance agility. We contend that some higher level processes and routines not included in the survey may explain the difference. Managerial insights and further avenues of research are presented. © 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
