Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this exploratory case study was to understand the reasons why leaders lack recognizing ecological validity in the global diamond jewelry production process in order to improve high council for international certification, standardization and policies. The senior jewelry production agent (SJPA) consisted of North Central United States managers and Mideastern United States officials representing their home countries. The case study was made up of three sources of data; documents, a focus group and interviews. Two field tests with industry experts validated the question instruments. A focus group of two and three interviews as SJPAs comprised the five sample. Elements of risk, motor and process skills, and naturalistic action were used to determine if ecological validity was included. Exploring SJPAs perceptions and experiences, helped Namibia and Lesotho countries’ where diamond suppliers are undermined by affordability issues to vendors. Human resources SJPAs in diamond jewelry corporations were observable through the updating of international Kimberley Process certification, standardization, and policy because of diamond cut and polish moving to India. Transfrontier conservation are safari’s, for former diamond mining and processing countries to promote eco-tourism in Namibia. Diversification to textile and beverage manufacturing helps occupation changes in Namibia and Lesotho. The Person-Environment Fit theory is the theoretical framework usable for this study. The use of NVivo 12® software technology analyzed results for taxonomy funneling of categories to create themes. Globalized big data oversaturation United States stabilization created taxonomic funneling of (a) language (b) familiarity (c) benevolence (d) review (e) job satisfaction and motivation.
