    Current research on network theory remains largely focused on structures and outcomes without exploring the capability that firms need to build efficient and effective networks to their advantage. In this paper, we take a networking capability view in studying inter-firm relationships. We assume that firms create their networks strategically. We show a more compelling picture of how networking beh... View full abstract»

    Organizations continue to struggle with low returns on knowledge management (KM) investments. This paper's goal is to prescribe a KM strategy that maximizes organizational knowledge reuse efficiency (KRE). Knowledge reuse is defined as the totality of all knowledge transfers, from all producers to all consumers in the same organization, over all locations. Organizational inefficiencies result from...

  • Managing Risks in Just-In-Sequence Supply Networks: Exploratory Evidence From Automakers

    Today's automakers are under an enormous price and cost pressure arising from both increasing competition and complexity of operations. One way to deal with this challenge is to outsource value creation to the supply network (SN), which then assumes the responsibility for producing variant-specific modules and delivering them just-in-sequence (JIS). This results in tightly coupled buyer-supplier r... View full abstract»

    We present an analysis of the trends and patterns documenting the role of intellectual human capital in the emergence of knowledge within both new biotech ventures and incumbent pharmaceutical firms. We leverage individual-level data detailing the publication and citation records for more than 284 000 scientists employed by biotech and pharma firms between 1974 and 2006. During this 33-year time p... View full abstract»

    We investigate the moderating effect of project complexity on the relationship between leadership competences of project managers and their success in projects. Building on existing studies in leadership and project management, we assess the impact of emotional (EQ), intellectual (IQ), and managerial (MQ) leadership competences on project success in different types of project complexities. A cross... View full abstract»

    Technical teams are often distributed across geographic locations and across time zones. While spatial and time separation are often correlated, most prior studies have only focused on one or the other. As a consequence, their respective effects may be confounded when teams have both spatial and time separation. We argue that bridging spatial and time separation pose very different coordination ch... View full abstract»

    Concurrent product development, the practice of executing dependent product development stages simultaneously, has become the common mode of new product development because of the increasing importance of time-to-market. However, such simultaneous execution of dependent stages may substantially increase the total amount of rework. This research addresses the trade-offs involved in concurrent proce...

    Individual learning is key to performance for knowledge-intensive activities such as information technology research. Individuals' learning effectiveness is inevitably influenced by both individual differences and the social forces of their surrounding context. While learning can be arduous and the effects of both sets of factors need to be understood to facilitate it, prior studies have typically... View full abstract»

    The research on determination of product life so far has been mostly focusing on the perspective of strategic development. This study, from a quantitative perspective, assumes that the decision to keep selling or stop selling a product is essentially affected by competitors' behaviors, and employs a stochastic approach in which the entry process of rival competitors and its effects within the plan...

    Managing and improving organizational capabilities is a significant and complex issue for many companies. To support management and enable improvement, performance assessments are commonly used. One way of assessing organizational capabilities is by means of maturity grids. While maturity grids may share a common structure, their content differs and very often they are developed anew.
