    This paper presents the results of an empirical analysis of the determinants of e-business activity across a sample of 26 developed countries and 52 emerging markets. Several "e-readiness" indicators predict actual e-business activity, including Internet infrastructure, computer infrastructure, affordable telephone service, literacy rates, English language capabilities, and logistics infrastructur...

    Any project has to be supported financially. The budget allocated to the project, however, is subject to uncertainty due to various financial, market, and political risks. The present paper incorporates budget uncertainty into project time-cost tradeoff. The proposed model formulates financial feasibility as a stochastic constraint, transforms it into a deterministic equivalent in the case of norm... View full abstract»

    Uncertainty in product development projects creates significant challenges for managers who are under intense competitive pressures to increase product quality, while reducing development time and costs. Traditional wisdom dictates the early selection of a single design in order to freeze interfaces between product subsystems so that team members can work effectively in parallel, resulting in more...

  • A model of market entry in an emerging technology market

    The timing of market entry is a critical decision, involving the need to balance the risk of premature entry with the problems of missed opportunities as a result of late entry. Drawing from several theoretical perspectives, we propose a model for explaining the reasons for early or delayed entry into an emerging technology market. A novel feature of our study is the use of a hazard modeling frame... View full abstract»

    Time-based strategy is becoming an important weapon to achieve competitive advantage in the current environment of fast-changing technology and customer requirements. Speed-to-market has become the mantra of both researchers and practitioners in new product development (NPD), but there are limited and conflicting findings on the relationship between speed-to-market and product success. A more impo... View full abstract»

  • The impact of aggregating benefit and cost criteria in four MCDA methods

    Multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA) problems (also known as multicriteria decision-making or MCDM) involve the ranking of a finite set of alternatives in terms of a finite number of decision criteria. Often times such criteria may be in conflict with each other. That is, an MCDA problem may involve both benefit and cost criteria at the same time. Although this is a frequent characteristic of ma...

    Internet privacy policies describe an organization's practices on data collection, use, and disclosure. These privacy policies both protect the organization and signal integrity commitment to site visitors. Consumers use the stated website policies to guide browsing and transaction decisions. This paper compares the classes of privacy protection goals (which express desired protection of consumer ... View full abstract»

    It has been well documented that the growing importance of postponement is significantly driven by the current business environment. However, there has been an absence of empirical research supporting this implication. Therefore, a questionnaire survey was conducted (by way of both post and e-mail) with a random sample of 368 British manufacturing companies across four industrial sectors to invest...

    The rapid rate at which new information technologies are emerging and their increasing complexity pose significant challenges for information systems departments in understanding and assimilating them. This has lead to a need for studies focused on the barriers to the adoption and assimilation of complex technologies. This research synthesizes the economic and organizational learning perspectives ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we describe the practical application of a flexibility-based management approach to new product development, highlighting advantages, and limitations of this methodology. The model is concerned with the resolution of uncertainty over the product development life cycle and deals with technical, market, and cost factors all together. To this end, we consider a real options model, whic... View full abstract»
