Do New Competitors, New Customers, New Suppliers, ... Sustain, Destroy Or Create Competitive Advantage?, Michael D. Ryall, Glenn MacDonald 2018 University of Toronto

Do New Competitors, New Customers, New Suppliers, ... Sustain, Destroy Or Create Competitive Advantage?, Michael D. Ryall, Glenn Macdonald

Michael D Ryall

We examine the effect of entry on the value appropriated by an incumbent. By ``entrant’’ we mean at any level of the value chain — from raw material suppliers to buyers. Our specific concern is whether competition guarantees the incumbent some positive minimum level of profit. We demonstrate that the net effect of entry is subtle — even when the entrant is a perfect imitator. On the one hand, entry typically results in greater value creation. This tends to soften competition and, thereby, lower the incumbent’s minimum level of appropriation. At the same time, however, entry also creates new competitive alternatives ...

Collective Action And Market Formation: An Integrative Framework, Brandon Lee, Jeroen Struben, Christopher B. Bingham 2018 McGill University

Collective Action And Market Formation: An Integrative Framework, Brandon Lee, Jeroen Struben, Christopher B. Bingham

Brandon Lee


While extant research places collective action at the heart of market formation, it provides little understanding about when and to what extent collective action is important. In this paper, we develop a novel theoretical framework detailing what collective action problems and solutions arise in market formation and under what conditions. Our framework centers on the development of market infrastructure with three key factors that influence the nature and extent of collective action problems: perceived returns to contributions, excludability, and contribution substitutability. We apply our framework to diverse market formation contexts and derive a fresh set of attendant propositions. Finally, we ...

A Model Of Competition Between Perpetual Software And Software As A Service, Zhiling GUO, Dan MA 2018 Singapore Management University

A Model Of Competition Between Perpetual Software And Software As A Service, Zhiling Guo, Dan Ma

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Software as a service (SaaS) has grown to be a significant segment of many software product markets. SaaS vendors, which charge customers based on use and continuously improve the quality of their products, have put competitive pressure on traditional perpetual software vendors, which charge a licensing fee and periodically upgrade the quality of their software. We develop an analytical model to study the competitive pricing strategies of an incumbent perpetual software vendor in the presence of a SaaS competitor. We find that, depending on both the SaaS quality improvement rate and the network effect, the perpetual software vendor adopts one ...

The Correlation Between Job Satisfaction And Turnover Intention In Small Business, Jane Ann Reukauf 2018 Walden University

The Correlation Between Job Satisfaction And Turnover Intention In Small Business, Jane Ann Reukauf

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Employee turnover has been responsible for the failure of many small businesses in the United States. Business leaders do not always understand the reasons employees choose to leave an organization. This correlational study, grounded in Herzberg's 2-factor theory, examined the relationship between intrinsic employee job satisfaction, extrinsic employee job satisfaction, and employee turnover intention among employees in small businesses. Participants included 129 employees of a small business in Western New York. The Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire and Turnover Intention Survey were used to collect the data. The multiple regression analysis significantly predicted extrinsic employee turnover intentions, F(3, 103) = 25 ...


The Attitudes And Behaviors Of Current Medical Students Towards Business Education And Training, Alea F. Simmons, Steven Charlier 2018 Georgia Southern University

The Attitudes And Behaviors Of Current Medical Students Towards Business Education And Training, Alea F. Simmons, Steven Charlier

University Honors Program Theses

Medical students often look into owning their own practice as an option for their career. However, many of them do not acquire the proper training for owning and operating a business, and ultimately end up making costly mistakes. Thus, the purpose of this study is to gauge how medical students perceive the importance of business education and training. Based on survey data from 137 current medical students from across the United States, our study found that the vast majority of medical students believe that business education and training is valuable. However, today’s MD/MBA programs do not appear to ...

Research Methodology In Business: A Starter’S Guide, Mohamed Af Ragab, Amr Arisha

Articles

A cardinal requisite of successful research lies in the proper selection of the research methodology applied to achieve research objectives using the available resources. In addition to acquiring sufficient knowledge of their specific research topic, researchers are urged to develop good understanding of alternative research methodologies at their disposal to be able to identify the best-suited methods to address the research question. This, however, often poses a challenge for novice researchers who face difficulty in grasping the vast methodology landscape and its encompassing array of debates. The purpose of this paper is to provide new researchers with a comprehensive overview ...


Identifying Cross-Country Key Drivers Of Social Entrepreneurial Activity, Cris Bravo 2018 University of San Diego

Identifying Cross-Country Key Drivers Of Social Entrepreneurial Activity, Cris Bravo

Dissertations

Governmental and philanthropic efforts alone are not sufficient to eradicate poverty. The world needs new frameworks that enable sustainable development by integrating the economic, social and environmental dimensions, and social entrepreneurship is of great interest because it has the capacity for facilitating societal change by fostering innovative ways to address social inequality, unemployment, and climate change. Precisely because social entrepreneurship lays at the intersection of the business and nonprofit worlds, it is a complex phenomenon, and there are many unknowns regarding how the convergence of these dimensions can be understood and managed at cross-national levels.

To investigate this phenomenon, this ...


Incorporating Stakeholder Input Into Financial Decision Making In California School Districts, LeAnn R. Nowlin 2018 Walden University

Incorporating Stakeholder Input Into Financial Decision Making In California School Districts, Leann R. Nowlin

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

As of June 2013, all California public school districts are required to incorporate stakeholder input into their operational goals and expenditures to increase stakeholder trust. Trust is a belief by one party in a transaction that the other party in the transaction will act in a way that is fair and in the interest of both parties. The problem is that no guidance or direction relative to the methods or extent to which stakeholder input should be gathered and incorporated was provided within the new regulations. Lawmakers and stakeholders had no insight into the effectiveness or level of school district ...
