This meant a strict change in the modality in which consumers acquired products or services. Lima millennials represent 32.1% of the population. They had to adapt their consumption habits to the novelties imposed by electronic commerce. This is how, as of 2021, electronic commerce became relevant in face of restrictions on the movement of people. Therefore, from the point of view of this study, the objective of the investigation considers “determining if consumption habits are related to electronic commerce in Lima millennials - Covid-19/2021 pandemic”. Regarding the methodology, the non-experimental design was implemented, a cross-sectional study with a quantitative approach, and correlational descriptive scope. The sample was probabilistically calculated through the formula for finite population proportions with a result of 384 people between 23 and 37 years old (millennials). For obtaining the data, the survey was used as a technique, as well as a questionnaire as an instrument made up of 28 items for both variables. For data processing in the inferential environment according to the normality test, Spearman’s Rho statistician was used, finding positive correlations. About the general hypothesis, the correlation was (r = 0,371) indicating that the relationship is positive, concluding that consumption habits are significantly related to electronic commerce in Lima millennials - Covid-19/2021 pandemic.<br /><br /><br /></p> Vanessa Estefanía Angulo Espinoza Patricia del Pilar Mongrut Tello Ana Cecilia Napán Yactayo Copyright (c) 2022 Cuadernos de Administración 2022-09-08 2022-09-08 38 74 e2011977 e2011977 10.25100/cdea.v38i74.11977 Mission, Vision, and Value Appropriation: A Correlational Analysis <p>The present study discusses the effective functionality of mission and vision statements in a business environment. In this spirit, the study evaluates the potential association between these two strategic elements and the achievement of organizational results, especially in terms of the competitive capacity of a company. Particularly, the study formulates a conceptual approach to determine the potential incidence of a mission and a vision statement’s quality on the organizational levels of value appropriation. Subsequently, using structural equation modeling through partial least squares, this approach is evaluated on a sample of 120 large companies registered in the Department of Santander, Colombia. The findings suggest that, although there is a positive association between a good mission and a good vision, the value appropriation only seems to depend on the former and not on the latter. The study validates that an adequately constructed mission statement could become a powerful mechanism for the sake of formulating and implementing strategies. Additionally, it states that the ability to build a quality mission is related to the company’s ability to create appropriate value and therefore, be competitive.</p> Orlando E.
