    Interruption-based advertising has gained prominence in the online channel. Yet, little attention has been paid to deriving design principles and conceptualizations for online interruption-based advertising. This paper examines three novel design factors related to this phenomenon, namely, exposure timing, advertising intent, and brand image. Exposure timing pertains to the time by which the adver...

    Two dominant theories-trust and technology acceptance-have been employed in numerous information systems research studies to help understand consumer behavior in e-commerce environments. In this context of voluntary Web site adoption and use, we provide a more precise understanding of the nomological network related to the cognitive variables (both beliefs and attitudes) that precede this use.

  • Multiperiod Remanufacturing Planning With Uncertain Quality of Inputs

    In this paper, we consider production planning when inputs have different and uncertain quality levels, and there are capacity constraints. This situation is typical of most remanufacturing environments, where inputs are product returns (also called cores). Production (remanufacturing) cost increases as the quality level decreases, and any unused cores may be salvaged at a value that increases wit... View full abstract»

    The construction of efficient performance evaluation and incentive systems is an important element of modern R&D management. As R&D activities are characterized by a high degree of sequentiality, there is an ongoing discussion as to whether R&D staff that provides the basis for following projects should be evaluated only on the basis of their individual performance or on the basis of m...

    This paper analyzes the interaction among the step-by-step innovation, the product market competition (PMC), and the knowledge information flow in the growth process. Patents protect their holders from being imitated or copied but do not protect them against the possibility that less-efficient competitors master the diffused knowledge. The degree to which diffused knowledge should be exploited by ... View full abstract»

    Knowledge management (KM) and its effective assimilation as an interrelated innovation are critical to the success of contemporary organizations, and have recently attracted increasing interest. The sources of influence on successful KM assimilation were explored via a study of Korean firms. A synthesis of previous studies that had utilized various theories to investigate KM variables yields six c... View full abstract»

    This study sheds light on how project managers can use language as a resource for communicating with local communities and stakeholders alike, and protect the legitimacy of their decisions and actions. The verbal accounts produced by a senior project management team are examined in-depth. The accounts address the claims raised by residents affected by the expansion of the Heathrow airport. The con... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a framework to consider the contribution of decision making and dynamic planning in the profitability of a project under uncertainty is proposed. Unified modeling language (UML) activity diagrams are constructed for different strategies of an ongoing engineering project whose final profitability is highly influenced by a set of uncertain variables, such as demand, costs and prices, ...

    From one perspective, diversity leads to an increase in the knowledge and viewpoints that adds to the creativity of the solution and methods during a software development project. From another perspective, diversity adds to the conflict in a project team, which detracts significantly from the desired results. This contradiction may be best explained by an examination of different forms of diversit... View full abstract»

    Managing a pharmaceutical R&D project is a complex undertaking that involves efforts from both business managers and scientists. The increasing complexity of exploratory activities in pharmaceutical innovation makes less likely that a project can stand alone. Project managers not only resort to in-house innovation but also external sources to propel a central project. In this paper, the author... View full abstract»

    Mergers and acquisitions of small- to medium-size manufacturing firms often result in an inefficient system of operations. A major issue is how to integrate existing operations from different business processes to streamline service and exploit economy of scales. Standard methodologies are often not adequate in these situations and there is a need for a new methodology to focus on consolidation of... View full abstract»

    This paper uses network analysis (NA) to study task interactions in the product development process (PDP) at a small engineering company (Smallcomp). We examine Smallcomp's organizational changes by comparing its PDP network properties at two points in time. The analysis identifies patterns of centralization, role specialization, and formalized control. This validates themes from organizational be... View full abstract»
