    We explore the role of research universities in explaining intercluster innovation differentials. Drawing on the knowledge production function, our baseline hypothesis is that cluster innovative performance is determined by the cluster's endowment with financial, intellectual, and human capital. Leveraging fine-grained, longitudinal panel data tracking the population of medical device clusters in ... View full abstract»

    University research parks constitute a potentially important mechanism for university technology transfer and regional economic development. Unfortunately, there is little theoretical or empirical evidence on the firm-level choice decision to locate on such a facility. We fill this gap by outlining and testing a theoretical model of this selection process. Our empirical results suggest that U.S. f... View full abstract»

    When agents originate and develop inventions, new discoveries, or scientific breakthroughs, do all residual cash flows go to principals - the risk bearers who own the infrastructures, systems, and the productive assets? This research addresses this question, focusing on university scientists who essentially bypass their institutions when they privately sell or license discoveries made at laborator...

    This paper aims to extend our understanding of the relative strengths and weaknesses of academic startups (ASUs) and other new technology-based firms (NTBFs). First, relying on insights from the resource- and competence-based theories of the firm and the literature on social networks and financial economics, we identify the factors that might differentiate ASUs and other NTBFs. Then, we combine th... View full abstract»

    Information systems (IS) researchers have demonstrated that usage is a key variable in explaining the performance impact of information technology. However, existing technology-mediated learning (TML) studies have not examined the influence of usage on learning outcome and the factors that determine the usage of TML. To address this research gap, our study presents and tests a TML model by drawing... View full abstract»

    Newly recruited engineers entering organizations often experience anxiety and uncertainty with regard to their roles, tasks, and career prospects in the organization. Successful adjustment of these newcomers to the role and organization has implications for performance, retention, and turnover of valuable knowledge workers. Organizations use several tactics to facilitate the new engineer's adjustm... View full abstract»

    Engineers in certain organizations in which technical upward movement is prematurely truncated must often move into management positions to attain continued upward career mobility. This transition is difficult for both those who make it and those who do not, and may cause good engineers to become derailed managers. On the basis of career stage theory, this study proposes an instrument to explore t... View full abstract»

    Product design starts with the analysis of customer needs to result in a design specification that includes such information as: 1) customer needs, 2) metrics, 3) targets, 4) importance of each metric, and 5) dependence relations between any two metrics. We call the metrics design attributes. In generating a design specification, one important issue is how the design specification meets customer n... View full abstract»

    Product development (PD) processes are complex and unstructured compared to business or manufacturing processes, as they have iterative, evolutionary, uncertain, and cooperative features. In order to effectively manage and control a complex PD process, appropriate and logical descriptions are needed. This requires a modeling framework that can capture its characteristics. However, previous modelin... View full abstract»

    Once the factors that foster the adoption of electronic-procurement systems (EPSs) are identified, economic agents may act accordingly and develop better programs in order to achieve their objectives. Toward the identification of such factors, a model that explains the adoption of EPS is developed, considering the technology-organization-environment framework as well as the institutional theory.

    In addition to acquiring external technology, firms have started to actively commercialize technological knowledge, which represents the opposite type of technology transactions. The strong interactions with a firm's environment contrast the traditional closed approaches to innovation. Therefore, this new paradigm has been termed open innovation. Prior research into this field has mostly been limi... View full abstract»

    In R&D project selection, experts (or external reviewers) always play a very important role because their opinions will have great influence on the outcome of the project selection. It is also undoubted that experts with high-expertise level will make useful and professional judgments on the projects to be selected. So, how to measure the expertise level of experts and select the most appropri... View full abstract»

    Many software projects fail, whether failure is measured in terms of budget, schedule, or some other requirement. The causes of such failures are many, but are not always easily recognized. This is not the least due to the human dimension of corporate activities, as spurious or misdiagnosed issues in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) projects can take on a life of their own and become a magnet fo...
