;Brauers, Willem K.M. ;Baležentis, TomasBusiness and management '2012 [Elektroninis išteklius] : the 7th International scientific conference, May 10-11 2012, Vilnius : selected papers. Vilnius, 2012. ISBN 9786094571169., P. 329-335The aim of this paper is to apply the multi-objective optimization method MULTIMOORA in sovereign rating analysis and thus rank the European Union (EU) Member States. The following tasks are thus set: 1) to describe the MULTIMOORA method; 2) to establish an indicator system for credit rating; and 3) to rank the EU Member States and discuss the future challenges. Rating agencies like Moody's rate countries economic growth drivers by internal analysts using unclear methods, probably mostly on a qualitative basis, with a final judgment by the board of directors acting as decision makers and being judge of one’s own case. These ratings influence the countries credit rating and ipso facto of their firms. MULTIMOORA, a quantitative method comparing multiple objectives expressed in different units, unless similar methods, does not need normalization being based on dimensionless measures. The analy-sis was based on objectives originating both from statistics and from forecasts and characterizing the 27 EU Member States’ economies. A Dominance Theory, summarizing the three obtained ordinal numbers per country ranks the 27 countries. As a result, Sweden, Luxembourg, and Finland were the top-ranked states, whereas so called PIIGS sates remained at the very bottom.

The paper presents new management practices such as social networks in organization management for developing distributed leadership. Contemporary organizations emphasize the emergence of the distributed, collectivist and non-authoritarian nature of leadership practices - opposing against unreflective mainstream perspectives that sustain authoritarian leadership norms.

Vol. 1 and 2. 12th European conference on eGovernment (ECEG) location: ESADE. Spain, JUN 14-15, 2012 / Inst. Publ Governance & Management, Barcelona ; ed. M. Gasco. [Kidmore End : Acad. conferences Ltd], 2012. ISBN 9781908272423., P. 313-319The e-cohesion concept is a new concept introduced within the European Union's policy documents issued in October 2011 for the new financial period of 2013 - 2020 regarding the use of Structural Funds. The concept itself is not yet defined in the proposals for legislative documents and there are not neither any clear measures suggested to the Member States, nor targets for its implementation. The concept is undoubtedly related with the simplification of the management procedures, targeting the submission electronically of all documents requested to the applicants. The main solutions suggested are the digitization of the management authorities, but also the extension of the electronic signature system and the increase of the on-line security for these operations. These developments will engage hopefully a cut of red-tape, the avoidance of duplication and environment friendly procedures. This article intends to contribute to the academic debate related to this new concept and to research how the implementation of the e-cohesion concept might challenge the present systems. A short inventory of some good practices that have already been implemented in several Member States will present an insight on steps already made in this field. The role of attachment to school and open classroom climate for discussion on adolescents’ school-related burnoutPublicationThe present study aimed to verify how attachment to school and open classroom climate for discussion is related to adolescents’ school-related burnout. Participants were adolescents from Lithuania (N = 1741, 727 boys and 1014 girls, age 15-19 years). Questionnaires consisted of Attachment to School scale, Open for Discussion Classroom Climate Scale, and School Burnout Inventory. Cluster analyses procedure revealed five different groups of adolescents according to their perceived attachment to school and open classroom climate for discussion. MANOVA results revealed that different groups differ in exhaustion at school, cynicism toward the meaning of school and in sense of inadequacy at school. Longitudinal examination of relationships between problem behaviors and academic achievement in young adolescentsPublicationA substantial body of research has documented associations between a variety of problem behaviors and academic achievement measures. A systemic viewpoint posits that behavioral and academic problems exert reciprocal influences on one another, which, over time, can negatively affect the development of individuals and their environments. However, the results of these studies should be interpreted cautiously, given the considerable comorbidity of problem behaviors that often exists among school-age youth. Another limitation is that those associations mostly are documented in cross-sectional studies. This longitudinal study addressed the relationships between internalizing and externalizing self-reported problem behavior syndromes (withdrawal, somatic complaints, anxiety/depression, delinquent behavior, and aggressive behavior) and mean measures of academic achievement (overall, mean score of reading & spelling, and arithmetic performance). We found some interaction effects of problem behavior, gender and grade on academic achievement. First, we found a decrease of academic achievement trough grades 6 to 8, among girls who exhibit less aggressiveness, while academic achievement among ones that are “more” aggressive stays the same across grades. Academic achievement among girls is pretty much the same across all grades, yet overall academic achievement is higher in non-delinquent group in all age groups Secondly, in boys group there is a decrease of academic achievement trough grades 6 to 8 among boys who show more aggressiveness, while academic achievement among boys who exhibit less aggressiveness stays the same across grades. The significant multivariate effect of “grade”, “gender” and delinquency interaction indicates that there is a decrease of academic achievement across grades in both boys group, yet the decrease among boys showing more delinquent behaviors is bigger than among the normal boys group.
- During the last decade the e.govenment projects became extremely demanded. The article describes the results of the development e.government methodology used for the Lithuania based on the project „E-government to Citizens: Guidelines for the Development of Lithuania Using Foresight Methodology” (The Reseach Project was financed by Lithuanian Science Foundation). This study seeks to theoretically and practically cover all the issues of e-government, concentrating the most important knowledge about e-government as an intergrated object of research. The European landscape in terms of eGovernment methodologies shows that there are still no common opinion on Interoperability benefit, which is divided according features (cost, time, etc.) and beneficiaries (administration, business, citizens). In a frame of the project the experimental research tested by different methods and focus groups to create data base and expert group clusters and foresight development methodology issues applied for Lithuania.

;Peleckis, KęstutisThe 6th International Scientific Conference Business and Management 2010 : selected papers. May 13-14, 2010, Vol. II. Vilnius : Technika, 2010. ISBN 2029-4441., P. 1033-1039The paper aims to analyse the phenomenon of self-presentation in business surroundings - a behavioural mode by which it is strived under public business surroundings to achieve an agreement and to avoid repudiating orienting to universally adapted norms and other people expectations. In the article the main strategies of self-presentation are described, which are used in business meetings and negotiation situations. The motivation of self-presentation develops under public situations, because it is characteristic of a person to take interests in people how they consider and evaluate other people. Therefore, a person realising himself as a social object, tries to perceive and see himself as such who can be seen by others, and, representing himself correspondingly in business meetings and negotiation, tries to show himself to be accepted and evaluated, and/or in such a way that when regulating other people impressions on himself, when getting particular results in business, he or she could confirm his (her) own identity. The paper enlarges the understanding of self-presentation, which influence both on person’s identity and his state shaping in business interaction.
- The purpose of the study was to examine the parental rearing practices as predictors of adolescent psychopathic traits. Adolescents (N=467) completed EMBU and YPI questionnaires Final model for boys revealed that cruelty and unemotionality factor is related with a lack of father’s emotional warmth; factor of impulsivity and irritability is related to lack of emotional warmth form a father and father’s over-protectiveness. For girls, factor of grandiosity and manipulation is related with mother’s over-protectiveness; cruelty and unemotionality factor is related with mother’s rejection and lack of father’s emotional warmth; factor of impulsivity and irritability is related to mother’s rejection. These findings suggest that parental rearing practices may be related differently to the development of psychopathic traits in boys and in girls.
