    A key metric for assessing innovative activity at the firm level is R&D intensity. R&D intensity is the ratio of a firm's R&D investment to its revenue (the percentage of revenue that is reinvested in R&D). Empirical and anecdotal evidence suggests that R&D intensity within an industry tends to be remarkably consistent. Despite this consistency in R&D spending, however, fir... View full abstract»

    Open innovation is a paradigm that believes that firms should use both internal and external ideas. These ideas can advance technology and lead to competitive advantage, thereby improving a firm's performance. However, the process of turning innovative ideas into performance does depend on firms' innovation capabilities. In this study, we first divide “openness” into external opennes...

    We examine the impacts of information technology (IT) intangibles and risk on profit and its retention in heterogeneous competitive environments. We show that IT leaders achieve higher abnormal profits through IT intangibles possibly due to their leading position and skills in exploiting IT than their peers while a portion of benefits is attributable to higher risk. We also find evidence that abno... View full abstract»

    Opportunities often emerge in the form of technological inventions that offer ways to create or deliver new value to prospective customers across a broad range of industries. This study investigates how the radicalness of technological inventions is tied to performance (sales growth) in young technology-based ventures. Using a combination of survey and patent data from 85 spin-offs from public res... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a methodological framework for IT project selection that focuses on the impact of synergy enhancement on portfolio return and risk. As the size of firms' IT investments continues to increase, the demand for strong methodologies for IT portfolio selection has been increasing. Using the mean-variance efficient frontier as a tool to balance portfolio return and portfolio risk, we ... View full abstract»

    This study depicts supply chain integration (SCI) for new product development (NPD) as a dynamic capability and explores its relationship with a product platform strategy (PPS), NPD performance, and overall firm performance. Supplier, internal, and customer integration are modeled as antecedents to PPS, while product innovation and relative profitability are modeled as direct and/or indirect conse... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a multiobjective dynamic vehicle routing problem with fuzzy travel times and customers' satisfaction level. In this model, all the required data are not known in advance and a set of dynamic requests (real time requests) arrives over time. The dispatcher does not have any information of these requests until they arrive. Moreover, the travel times which in reality and in urban a... View full abstract»
