    Research has long emphasized the importance of the development of new products for global markets. However, despite the increasing interest of firms in developing such products, we do not know empirically how such development impacts the performance of new product development (NPD) programs. Addressing this research gap in the literature, this study proposes and tests a series of hypotheses about ... View full abstract»

    The lack of knowledge on 1) how Web technologies support the business strategies of an organization and 2) how Web technologies enhance organizational performance are gaps in the existing literature that may account for the inability of the majority of Web-based firms to leverage their investments in Web technologies. To address these knowledge gaps, a theoretical lens is constructed from five cor... View full abstract»

    This paper addresses the question of how projects are organized and how these management structures impact project success. Despite its widely accepted managerial importance, empirical studies could not provide significant evidence of a relationship between implemented management structures and project success. A major problem in finding meaningful empirical evidence is the conceptualization of th... View full abstract»

    In recent years, social networking systems have become quite popular, and have been established for a variety of purposes. However, it is still not well understood if sense of community (SOC) contributes to an individual user's continued usage of these systems. This paper presents a theoretical model combining key constructs from the SOC framework and the information systems usage/success models t... View full abstract»

    As contemporary firms become reliant on networks of supply chain partners, their performance increasingly depends on their supply chains' ability to be responsive to changing markets. This research addresses the theoretically neglected question of how and why the interplay between product design modularity and information technology (IT) infrastructure flexibility influences supply chain performan...

    Increasingly, consulting firms are employed by client organizations to participate in the implementation of enterprise systems projects. Such consultant-assisted information systems projects differ from internal and outsourced IS projects in two important respects. First, the joint project team consists of members from client and consulting organizations that may have conflicting goals and incompa... View full abstract»

  • Simulator-Based Team Training to Share Resources in a Matrix Structure Organization

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):288 - 300
    Cited by:  Papers (7)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (450 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Project management in a matrix organization is complex because project managers share the organization resources (budget and human), and cooperation between managers is critical for effective resource sharing. Therefore, training project managers in the matrix structure to work as a team is required. A simulator-based method to train managers to work as a team is presented. A project team builder ...

    The theory of constraints (TOC) emphasizes the exploitation of resource constraints in order to increase the product throughput of an organization. The product-mix decision is one application of the five steps in the TOC. This paper considers an integrated heuristic model comprising the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and the TOC in a decision model in which priority of product and resource cente...

    1990's have been marked by significant changes both in the strategic management field, with the development of competence-based management and the use of the concept of value-creating network, and in the design management field, with the diffusion of matrix-based tools that help to manage the interdependencies between three domains of design projects: product, process, and organization. Few resear... View full abstract»

    In recent years, organizations have invested heavily in e-procurement technology solutions. However, an estimation of the value of the technology-enabled procurement process is often lacking. Our paper presents a rigorous methodological approach to the analysis of e-procurement benefits. Business process simulations are used to analyze the benefits of both technological and organizational changes ... View full abstract»
