Shakila Yacob And Nicholas White, ‘The “Unfinished Business” Of Malaysia’S Decolonisation: The Origins Of The Guthrie Dawn Raid’, Shakila P. Yacob Associate Professor

Shakila Yacob

In a ‘dawn raid’ on the London Stock Exchange on 7 September 1981, the premiere British rubber and oil palm conglomerate in Malaysia, the Guthrie Corporation Limited, was taken into local control in less than four hours. Thiswas the most dramatic Malaysian acquisition of a foreign company during the restructuring of the country’s post-colonial economy during the 1970s and 1980s, and the Guthrie Dawn Raid remains a celebrated but, at the same time, contested juncture in contemporary Malaysian memory. Drawing upon a variety of sources—including original interviews and correspondence with key participants in, and observers of, the Guthrie ...

Value Networks For Developing Mobile Innovations: The Case Of Apple Iphone, Mutaz M. Al-Debei 2010 The University of Jordan

Value Networks For Developing Mobile Innovations: The Case Of Apple Iphone, Mutaz M. Al-Debei

Dr. Mutaz M. Al-Debei

This paper intuitively utilizes a methodical approach (i.e. VNM Model) to analyze the success of Apple iPhone mobile innovation from a value network perspective. The paper demonstrates, through the case of iPhone, how a powerful and well- designed value network is a critical enabler of innovations in the mobile telecommunications industry. Retrospectively, the paper also discusses key value drivers of successful value networks.


Developing A Unified Framework Of The Business Model Concept, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, David Avison 2010 The University of Jordan

Developing A Unified Framework Of The Business Model Concept, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, David Avison

Dr. Mutaz M. Al-Debei

Recent rapid advances in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have highlighted the rising importance of the Business Model (BM) concept in the field of Information Systems (IS). Despite agreement on its importance to an organization’s success, the concept is still fuzzy and vague, and there is little consensus regarding its compositional facets. Identifying the fundamental concepts, modeling principles, practical functions, and reach of the BM relevant to IS and other business concepts is by no means complete. This paper, following a comprehensive review of the literature, principally employs the content analysis method and utilizes a deductive reasoning approach to ...


Developing A Decision-Making Framework For Web Service Security Profiles: A Design-Science Paradigm, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, Bachar Alrouh, Gheorghita Ghinea 2010 The University of Jordan

Developing A Decision-Making Framework For Web Service Security Profiles: A Design-Science Paradigm, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, Bachar Alrouh, Gheorghita Ghinea

Dr. Mutaz M. Al-Debei

In this paper, we provide a novel analytical hierarchy process decision-making framework for Web service security profiles. This framework aids in solving the dilemma of which Web service security profile is most fitting in a particular situation. This is because the developed framework allows architects and developers to take informed decisions following a systematic and manageable approach. In developing the framework, we followed the design-science research paradigm within which we incorporated a number of laboratory experiments.


Engaging With Citizens Online: Understanding The Role Of Epetitioning In Local Government Democracy, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, Panagiotis Panagiotopoulos 2010 The University of Jordan

Engaging With Citizens Online: Understanding The Role Of Epetitioning In Local Government Democracy, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, Panagiotis Panagiotopoulos

Dr. Mutaz M. Al-Debei

According to the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act introduced in 2009, UK local authorities are expected to implement ―a facility for making petitions in electronic form to the authority‖. Motivated by this arrangement, this paper reflects on the findings of a case study investigation conducted with the Royal Borough of Kingston (one of the first local authorities to implement such a service since 2004). Lessons learnt from the case suggest that ePetitions reveal increased potential to enhance local government democracy, but are also shaped by challenging open implementation issues which can highly influence the initiative’s impact. Our ...


The Design And Engineering Of Mobile Data Services:Developing An Ontology Based On Business Model Thinking, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, Guy Fitzgerald 2010 The University of Jordan

The Design And Engineering Of Mobile Data Services:Developing An Ontology Based On Business Model Thinking, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, Guy Fitzgerald

Dr. Mutaz M. Al-Debei

This paper addresses the design and engineering problem related to mobile data services. The aim of the research is to inform and advise mobile service design and engineering by looking at this issue from a rigorous and holistic perspective. To this aim, this paper develops an ontology based on business model thinking. The developed ontology identifies four primary dimensions in designing business models of mobile data services: value proposition, value network, value architecture, and value finance. Within these dimensions, 15 key design concepts are identified along with their interrelationships and rules in the telecommunication service business model domain and unambiguous ...


The Design Of Innovative Mobile Artifacts: How To Develop Powerful Value Networks?, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, Guy Fitzgerald 2010 The University of Jordan

The Design Of Innovative Mobile Artifacts: How To Develop Powerful Value Networks?, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, Guy Fitzgerald

Dr. Mutaz M. Al-Debei

The development of mobile data services and products calls for participation and collaboration amongst many actors with different expertise. However, building powerful value network is challenging and requires a detailed examination of a number of design constructs and their interrelationships. This research provides an intuitive model to help effectively design such networks. The model is illustrated using NTT DoCoMo’s i-mode case. It is argued that the model offers a useful methodical approach for telecoms providers to develop a thriving value network capable of creating significant mobile innovations and benefits.


Rethinking The Business Model Concept With Eparticipation, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, Panagiotis Panagiotopoulos, Guy Fitzgerald, Tony Elliman 2010 The University of Jordan

Rethinking The Business Model Concept With Eparticipation, Mutaz M. Al-Debei, Panagiotis Panagiotopoulos, Guy Fitzgerald, Tony Elliman

Dr. Mutaz M. Al-Debei

Enhancing citizen participation in policy making using Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) is emerging as a strategic issue for political organisations. ICT-mediated participation, or eParticipation, projects range from the more traditional public sector initiatives, such as petitions and consultations, to attempts at integrating new forms of participatory Web 2.0 media. In this paper, we argue that the potential of ICTs to deliver sustainable eParticipation has not been fully achieved. This is mainly because of the lack of (1) effective coordination at the implementation level, (2) appropriate infrastructure, and (3) effective service design and development. In addressing this gap, we ...

Gift Giving And The Creation Of Trust, Martin Mathews 2010 University of Westminster

Gift Giving And The Creation Of Trust, Martin Mathews

Martin Mathews

We examine the role that gift giving plays in industrial districts and in particular the role of gift giving in the creation of inter-organisational trust. Inter-organisational exchanges in a mature industrial district are analyzed using Mauss’ theoretical framework of gift-giving, receiving and counter-giving. Actors in embedded network relationships frequently exchange gifts and favours. This gift giving is a fundamental part of the relationship. Gift giving is found to be instrumental in creating and maintaining relationships, defining group and individual identity and resolving conflicts. The originality of our findings lies in the fact that despite the ideology of the purely altruistic ...

The Influence Of Vietnam’S Administrative Reform On Entrepreneurial Orientation In Micro-Enterprises, Mai T T Thai 2010 HEC Montreal

The Influence Of Vietnam’S Administrative Reform On Entrepreneurial Orientation In Micro-Enterprises, Mai T T Thai

Mai T T Thai

Basing on the results of a face-to-face survey and secondary data from General Statistics Office of Vietnam, we found that the administration reform of Vietnam has had a positive impact on entrepreneurial orientation (EO) on all of its three dimensions, namely managerial perception, firm behavior, and resource allocation in Vietnamese micro-enterprises. The firms have shown to take higher risks and be more proactive but they have not put an emphasis on innovation yet. In this paper, we present the reform’s milestones and the evolution of EO in Vietnamese microenterprises along these three dimensions.
