Projects in a multi-project environment often conflict due to pursuit of their own goals, their unique approaches to completion of required tasks, and their individual need for limited resources. A process design for the resolution of such conflict promotes agreement on means of implementation and a common commitment to overall goals of the organization. Overall success rates are improved in an information technology context when implementing the recommended conflict resolution procedures.

This paper attempts to address a growing concern that the field of marketing is declining in influence. To accomplish this, the paper looks at 22 years of citation data across 9 of the leading scholalry journals in the areas of Marketing, Finance, Management, and Accounting. The results indicate that within the 4 main business functions, marketing articles are cited the least by other fields. Adding to this dilemma, the methodologically sophisticated nature of marketing research may prevent managers from seeking it out for insight and strategic influence.

Scholars acknowledge that a greater understanding of duty in organizations is needed to explain both performance and ethical behavior. This paper provides a starting point for the study of duty in organizations by advancing the construct of duty orientation, validating a measurement instrument, and providing empirical evidence of it as a mediator between effective leadership and both ethical and performance outcomes. In doing so, we seek to encourage inquiry into the etiology of duty and how it influences thought and behavior in the workplace.
