    Because of resource limitations, project managers in many organizations are tasked to lead more than one project at a time. In this research, these project managers are referred to as multiple-project managers and such a management condition is referred to as management of a group of multiple projects (MGMP). This study is among the first to investigate effectiveness in MGMP, a multiple project ma... View full abstract»

    Doing the right innovation projects is critical to firm's success; therefore, academics and practitioners are striving for optimizing innovation project portfolio management (IPPM). Although some research on certain issues in IPPM has been conducted so far, valid empirical evidence on the use, outcomes, and most important success drivers of portfolio methods in innovation management is rare. We ai... View full abstract»

    This paper explores the effectiveness of mass customization strategies in a manufacturing firm. The manufacturing firm produces standard products in a flexible factory where mass customization is technologically feasible. We integrate product strategy and channel design to explore whether the firm should adopt mass customization and how the distribution channel should be configured for custom prod...

    This paper explores how interfirm variations in their in-licensed technology portfolios influence subsequent innovation performance. Existing studies mainly assume licensed technologies are homogeneously accessible to firms, and a prevailing explanation as to why firms vary in their innovation performance lies in differences of absorptive capacity. In this study, we intend to relax this assumption... View full abstract»

    IT outsourcing (ITO) has created new issues for engineering management. Of these, a persistent problem concerns the boundaries between clients and vendors, which have the potential to damage even the most trusting and secure relationship. The rising trend of offshore sourcing has further exacerbated the issue, because of the national boundaries that ITO traverses in the offshore context. However, ... View full abstract»

    Quality function deployment (QFD) is a useful planning approach for constructing new product designs or modifying existing products. The approach has been widely adopted in various applications. For QFD processes, the house of quality (HOQ) is first constructed to describe customer requirements (CRs) and their importance, design requirements (DRs), the relationships between CRs and DRs, and the co...

    Firms faced with large capacity investment decision often face complex decisions: when to invest, which market to pursue, and how much to invest into those markets, all of which have strategic implications in competitive environments. We study a setting where two firms with symmetric costs are each considering capacity investments into one of two alternative projects, one targeting an emerging mar... View full abstract»

    Despite the considerable volume of research on technology commercialization, the role of complementary assets in driving technology commercialization remains controversial. In this paper, we provide a balanced perspective that integrates notions from transaction costs, firm capabilities, and industrial organization studies. In particular, we analyze the offsetting effects of the nature, ownership,... View full abstract»

    Firms that open up their organizational boundaries and access valuable external sources of knowledge can create new opportunities for innovation. However, little is known about this conjecture in the business-to-business (B-to-B) service context: whether B-to-B service firms utilize external knowledge and ideas for innovation, and if so, which types of partners they collaborate with in their innov...

    We study a firm's joint decisions on product prices, delivery lead times, and capacity investments of the production facility. We assume customers are strategic and heterogeneous in their sensitivity to waiting. The firm can offer a single service to all customers or two services with different delivery lead times and prices. We investigate a firm's optimal decisions when the firm is a monopolist ...

    This study investigates how government taxation incentives stimulate R&D expenditures from the organizational field level and accordingly improve innovation performance. Our results, based on an examination of 54 Chinese High-Tech industrial parks in the period of 2002-2008, suggest that government taxation affects industrial parks' R&D expenditure in a U-shaped way over time. Although gov... View full abstract»

    This paper explores the decision of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to participate in official standard setting alliances. Based on micro data of German firms in the electrical engineering and machinery industry, we show that innovation-related variables follow the predictions of our hypotheses. Research and development (R&D) intensity exhibits an inverse U-shaped relationship on th... View full abstract»

    A new product development process is usually under economic and technical uncertainties, and adjustable to the arrival of new information. As a result, new product development is not a one-time decision but a dynamic process under uncertainties. This paper applies repeated real options to derive optimal decision-making rules for a firm that faces two repeated options: 1) an incremental innovation ... View full abstract»

    The use of prediction markets (PMs) for forecasting is emerging in many fields because of its excellent forecasting accuracy. However, PM accuracy depends on its market design, including the choice of market mechanism. Standard financial market mechanisms are not well suited for small, usually illiquid PMs. To avoid liquidity problems, automated market makers (AMMs) always offer buy and sell price...

    Engineering changes (ECs) are raised throughout the lifecycle of engineering products. A single change to one component produces knock-on effects on others necessitating additional changes. This change propagation significantly affects the development time and cost and determines the product's success. Predicting and managing such ECs is, thus, essential to companies. Some prediction tools model c... View full abstract»
