    The increase of university patents has raised issues of potential conflicts of interest in Faculty activities. Nonetheless, recent empirical evidence has indicated that very productive scientists contribute disproportionally to academic patenting and that inventing is likely to encourage an increase in scientific productivity. This article adds to this evidence by showing that such beneficial effe... View full abstract»

    The study of marketing-manufacturing integration (MMI) in new product development (NPD) projects is rather limited, and has not clearly indicated how levels of MMI should differ across various stages of development for high and low levels of product innovativeness. Our study builds upon prior research that has applied resource dependency theory to product development projects. We examine the influ... View full abstract»

    An individual's reluctance to report the actual status of a troubled project has recently received research attention as an important contributor to project failure. While there are a variety of factors influencing the reluctance to report, prior information systems research has focused on only situational factors such as risk, information asymmetry, and time pressure involved in the given situati...

    This paper presents an integrated theoretical process model for identifying , describing, and analyzing the complex escalation and de-escalation phenomena in software development projects. The approach-avoidance theory is used to integrate core elements of various escalation theories into a holistic, explanatory framework for the two phenomena. We use a process model to identify antecedent conditi... View full abstract»

    Many e-commerce Web sites provide multiple functions, such as a product search function, an online purchase function, an order tracking function, and for downloadable software products, a product delivery function. It is important to assess how perceptions of a peripheral function affect perceptions of the core purchase function that locks in revenue. In this study, we examine how the search funct...

    During the past decade, manufacturers have invested heavily in the use of advanced manufacturing technologies (AMTs). The results of these investments have been mixed, as some organizations have seen significant returns while others have experienced major problems in implementation. As yet, the returns and complementarities between AMT have not been determined. Using complementarity assumptions de... View full abstract»

    A pragmatic procedure is suggested to determine the size of a projectpsilas, a programpsilas, or a system's risk contingency budget at any specified level of certainty, e.g., 99% confidence. The size of the budget is a function of the number of risks expected at the specified confidence level. The number of risks used for developing the contingency budget depends on the total number of risks to be... View full abstract»
