    Firm spending on innovation and marketing, as measured by research and development (R&D) and advertising expenses, respectively, are expected to yield positive returns in terms of share price performance. Given resource limitations, firms prioritize the quantum of their investments in R&D and advertising vis-a`-vis other investments. We examine the relationship between firm performance and t...

    This paper assesses the extent to which human capital (education, work experience, and training) and social capital (level of interconnectedness, relationship, and shared expectations with others) impact on research and development outcomes. Controlling for gender and type of industry, logistic regression analyses indicate that an individual's education level has a positive impact on patents/copyr... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (632 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This research extends the theory of planned behavior by incorporating gender and age as moderators of user perceptions and individual adoption and sustained use of technology in the workplace. Individual reactions and technology use behavior were studied over a six-month period among 342 workers being introduced to a new software technology application. While previous studies in the literature hav... View full abstract»

    A system for evaluating the outcomes of multidisciplinary R&D projects was developed in China by using the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) model. The AHP framework was structured as a "vertical" AHP with "horizontal" fuzzy scoring. Original inputs for the index system were elicited from a survey of expert evaluators on a national level. The AHP-based system was then applied by the Chinese Ministr... View full abstract»

    Supply base optimization is a critical issue facing firms that are striving to achieve an efficient sourcing strategy. While several decision models have effectively been utilized for evaluating and selecting potential suppliers, methodologies for supply base optimization have not received significant attention in the literature. The main contribution of this paper is the development of a quantita... View full abstract»
