Firm-Specific Knowledge Assets And Employment Arrangements: Evidence From Ceo Compensation Design And Ceo Dismissal, Heli WANG, Shan ZHAO, Guoli CHEN 2017 Singapore Management University

Firm-Specific Knowledge Assets And Employment Arrangements: Evidence From Ceo Compensation Design And Ceo Dismissal, Heli Wang, Shan Zhao, Guoli Chen

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Research Summary: We argue that firms with greater specificity in knowledge structure need to both encourage their CEOs to stay so that they make investments with a long-term perspective, and provide job securities to the CEOs so that they are less concerned about the risk of being dismissed. Accordingly, we found empirical evidence that specificity in firm knowledge assets is positively associated with the use of restricted stocks in CEO compensation design (indicating the effort of CEO retention) and negatively associated with CEO dismissal (indicating the job securities the firm committed to CEOs). Furthermore, firm diversification was found to mitigate ...


Social Value Creation And Relational Coordination In Public-Private Collaborations, Nigel D. CADWELL, Jens K. ROEHRICH, Gerard GEORGE 2017 Heriot Watt University

Social Value Creation And Relational Coordination In Public-Private Collaborations, Nigel D. Cadwell, Jens K. Roehrich, Gerard George

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Public-private collaborations, or hybrid organizational forms, are often difficult to organize because of disparate goals, incentives, and management practices. Some of this misalignment is addressed structurally or contractually, but not the management processes and practices. In this study, we examine how the coordination of these social and work relationships, or relational coordination, affects task performance and the creation of social value. We employ a dyad perspective on two long-term relationships that are part of a wider ecosystem. We illustrate the social value creation process, identifying mutual knowledge and goal alignment, as necessary to create relational coordination. We find that the ...


Strategic Challenges Confronting Leaders Of A Cross-Sector Collaboration Organization Created To Improve Community Health, Michael J. Fratantuono, David M. Sarcone 2017 Dickinson College

Faculty and Staff Publications By Year

This article explores the strategic challenges associated with launching and managing a cross-sector collaboration that confronted Aligning Forces for Quality of South Central Pennsylvania (AF4Q-SCPA), which was established to improve health care quality in partnerships with patients, providers, employers, and community organizations. It draws upon the work of scholars from the fields of public administration, public health, organizational theory, and business strategy. It synthesizes previous contributions to create a new model called the Collaboration Cube, which links the likelihood of success of initiatives to intended outcomes and collaborative structures. With respect to methodology, it takes an inductive approach and uses ...

Strategic Sequential Bidding For Government Land Auction Sales – Evidence From Singapore, Sumit AGARWAL, Jing LI, Ernie TEO, Alan CHEONG 2017 Singapore Management University

Strategic Sequential Bidding For Government Land Auction Sales – Evidence From Singapore, Sumit Agarwal, Jing Li, Ernie Teo, Alan Cheong

Research Collection School Of Economics

This paper studies the extent to which equilibrium auction prices are pushed up sequentially due to strategic bidding behaviors in government land auction sales. Using a unique dataset that covers the universe of tendering prices submitted by all developers for all residential land auction sales in Singapore, we find that a tenderer’s bids are significantly higher where there was a previous land parcel sold within two years and located within four kilometers. The elevated price margin decreases with time and geographic distance. Tracking sequential bids submitted by same developers over time, we find that the incumbent winner of a ...

SUCCESSION PLANNING IN THE RELIGIOUS NON-PROFIT SECTOR: UNDERSTANDING ASSOCIATE PASTORS’ EXPERIENCES OF SERVING AS INTERNAL INTERIMS

May 2017

The concept of succession planning is not new for organizations, as most will experience the loss of key personnel for a variety of reasons including retirement, termination, death, and unforeseen circumstances. Therefore, having a deliberate and systematic process for identifying, developing, and retaining key personnel makes succession planning critical to the long term viability of organizations.

However, challenges in the ...

An Examination Of Faculty Salaries Between The Fields Of Strategic Management And Entrepreneurship, Todd A. Finkle

Todd A Finkle

Research in compensation for faculty at universities is an understudied area.  This study will contribute to our understanding of the trends in salaries for faculty in the areas of strategic management and entrepreneurship.  Based on 325 AACSB schools of higher education in the United States from 2004-2015, the study examines three separate variables: sex, rank, and type of institution.  The results of this study will be beneficial to both doctoral students, faculty, and administrators as they will get a better understanding of the trends that are occurring in the marketplace.  A discussion of the findings and implications are examined.


How Do Leader Departures Affect Turnover Among Those Employees Left Behind?, John Hausknecht 2017 Cornell University

How Do Leader Departures Affect Turnover Among Those Employees Left Behind?, John Hausknecht

CAHRS ResearchLink

[Excerpt] In large organizations, mid-level unit leaders regularly vacate their positions for a variety of reasons, including promotions, transfers, quits, and terminations. Certainly there are reasons to expect that these departures have residual effects – both positive and negative – on the units involved. Surprisingly, though, researchers have thus far paid scant attention to these dynamics. The present study takes a major step toward filling this void. Specifically, it looks at data from 287 locations of a company in the food and hospitality industry to examine the extent to which succession patterns among mid-level unit leaders influence both short- and longer-term voluntary ...


The Dynamics Of Open Strategy: From Adoption To Reversion, Melissa M. Appleyard, Henry W. Chesbrough 2017 Portland State University

The Dynamics Of Open Strategy: From Adoption To Reversion, Melissa M. Appleyard, Henry W. Chesbrough

Business Faculty Publications and Presentations

Innovation has become more open in recent years. Yet the decision to become more open and the challenge of sustaining that openness are not well understood. This is the concern of the “content” branch of Open Strategy, defined as the branch that addresses an organization's open innovation strategy. We examine the initial motivations to adopt an open strategy, and then consider when organizations choose to maintain that open strategy or revert to a more proprietary approach. Similarly, we examine motivations to open up a previously proprietary strategy. We find that these dynamics depend on the organization's desire to ...

Ndoto Au Ota: Jifundishe's Strategic Planning Process: A Case Study Of An Appreciative Approach To The Strategic Planning Process For A Small Ngo, Margaret Bearor

Capstone Collection

In January 2017, Jifundishe, a small, local nonprofit organization based in Ngongongare, Tanzania undertook its first strategic planning process. I was asked to design and lead this initiative for the organization, finding a way to introduce tools and resources so that they, or a similar organization, could replicate the process in the future. To better reflect the values, culture, and constraints of Jifundishe, the methodology selected to drive the process was Appreciative Inquiry (AI). AI is a change model focused on strengths, and an appreciative strategic plan looks to take the best of what you already have and work to ...


How To Restructure And Optimize A Mid-Market It Department For Aqilitv, Kelly Kleinfelder 2017 La Salle University

How To Restructure And Optimize A Mid-Market It Department For Aqilitv, Kelly Kleinfelder

Mathematics and Computer Science Capstones

Mid-market IT departments must operate in a lean manner while providing top-notch support and administration to the business units, all while being agile to keep up with new technologies. Too often, these IT departments are under-staffed or staffed in a manner that is mis-aligned with business needs. Therefore, customer service suffers in the form of lengthy wait times, a loss of trust and respect for the IT organization and the emergence of shadow IT.

This paper will detail how one mid-size enterprise restructured its IT department to provide better service and alignment to business units, while keeping staffing levels the ...


Competitive Intensity And Its Two-Sided Effect On The Boundaries Of Firm Performance, Joao Montez, Francisco Ruiz-Aliseda, Michael D. Ryall 2017 London Business School

Competitive Intensity And Its Two-Sided Effect On The Boundaries Of Firm Performance, Joao Montez, Francisco Ruiz-Aliseda, Michael D. Ryall

Michael D Ryall

The new perspective emerging from strategy's value-capture stream is that the effects of competition are two-fold: competition for an agent bounds its performance from below, while that for its transaction partners bounds from above. Thus, assessing the intensity of competition on either side is essential to understanding firm performance. Yet, the literature provides no formal notion of "competitive intensity" with which to make such assessments. Rather, some authors use added value as their central analytic concept, others the core. Added value is simple, but misses the crucial, for-an-agent side of competition. The core is theoretically complete, but difficult to ...


The Fifth Epoch: Socio-Economic Approach To Sustainable Capitalism, David M. Boje, Yue Cai Hillon 2017 New Mexico State University

The Fifth Epoch: Socio-Economic Approach To Sustainable Capitalism, David M. Boje, Yue Cai Hillon

Markets, Globalization & Development Review

The purpose of this conceptual essay is to challenge the inevitability of living with the destructive beast of speculative market economics in the 4th epoch of global capitalism. We are facing an existential socio-ecological threat from the short-term excesses of financial capitalism, a socially irresponsible form that consumes without producing value and without bearing entrepreneurial risk, benefitting only the few. The fate of roughly 90% of humanity hangs in the balance. The primary contribution of this paper proposes a 5th epoch of capitalism, inspired by Savall and Zardet’s socio-economic and sustainable approach that restores human potential and ...


Dragons In The West: Localizations Strategies Of Chinese Multinationals In Developed Economies, Can Ouyang 2017 Cornell University

Dragons In The West: Localizations Strategies Of Chinese Multinationals In Developed Economies, Can Ouyang

CAHRS ResearchLink

[Excerpt] According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, Chinese foreign direct investment (FDI) in the U.S. increased more than three-fold - from $3.3 billion to $14 billion - between 2010 and 2015. This rapid rate of expansion was accomplished in a variety of ways. In many cases Chinese firms formed their own wholly-owned subsidiaries, but often they chose to merge with, acquire, or otherwise engage in formal alliances with U.S. counterparts. In 2015, for example, Chinese multinationals completed 103 mergers and acquisitions in this country, an increase of 30% over the previous year. Despite current political uncertainties, there is ...


Feasibility Analysis Of Recycled-Paper Fueled Agricultural Desalination Process: Design Of Recycling And Desalination Processes, Sean M. Street 2017 Department of Chemical Engineering

Feasibility Analysis Of Recycled-Paper Fueled Agricultural Desalination Process: Design Of Recycling And Desalination Processes, Sean M. Street

Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Honors Theses

While recycled-paper-briquettes have lower BTU ratings than wood, and fresh water is typically a low cost to agricultural entities, situations exist where economic and/or environmental factors may allow a recycled-paper-fueled desalination process to be viable for some specific agricultural entities. This document begins with a discussion of how water is priced throughout India before analyzing trends in the Maize futures market. By tying the two together, an opportunity is created for solution which the remainder of the document presents. Paper waste in India makes-up 50% of its solid waste country-wide; however, only a quarter of that waste is recycled ...

Using Baseline Models To Improve Theories About Emerging Markets, Andreas Schwab, William H. Starbuck 2017 Iowa State University

Using Baseline Models To Improve Theories About Emerging Markets, Andreas Schwab, William H. Starbuck

Andreas Schwab

Purpose – This chapter reports on a rapidly growing trend in the analysis of data about emerging market (EM) economies – the use of baseline models as comparisons for explanatory models. Baseline models estimate expected values for the dependent variable in the absence of a hypothesized causal effect but set higher standards than do traditional null hypotheses tests that expect no effect. Design/methodology/approach – Although the use of baseline models research originated in the 1960s, it has not been widely discussed, or even acknowledged, in the EM literature. We surveyed published EM studies to determine trends in the use of baseline ...

A Comparison Of International R&D Strategies Of Chinese Companies In Europe And The Usa, Alberto Di Minin, Xiaohong Quan, Jieyin Zhang

Iris Xiaohong Quan

Europe and the USA are the two popular overseas R&D investment destinations for Chinese companies. We explore whether there are significant differences or similarities in the comparison of international R&D strategies of Chinese MNCs in Europe and the USA. Specifically, we examine how Chinese MNCs implement R&D strategies to facilitate learning. We adopt the method of theory building from case study research to answer this question. Based on 14 R&D units of 12 Chinese companies in Europe and the USA, our analysis investigates and compares the R&D strategies of Chinese multinationals in Europe and the ...


When Elites Forget Their Duties: The Double-Edged Sword Of Prestigious Directors On Boards, Jana OEHMICHEN, Daniel BRAUN, Michael WOLFF, Toru YOSHIKAWA 2017 Singapore Management University

When Elites Forget Their Duties: The Double-Edged Sword Of Prestigious Directors On Boards, Jana Oehmichen, Daniel Braun, Michael Wolff, Toru Yoshikawa

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School of Business

Previous research indicates that the performance effect of prestigious directors is ambiguous. Our study addresses this issue by integrating the theoretical lens of board capital and the institutional perspective. We argue that prestigious directors can bring benefits as well as costs. We claim that the emergence of these costs depends on the institutional context, specifically the institutional characteristics of the country's corporate elite circle which is characterized by the elite cohesion and the elite exclusiveness. Our empirical results with a 15-country sample covering the period of 2005 to 2014 provide evidence for the overall existence of a positive performance ...

Health Systems In Transition: Professional Identity Work In The Context Of Shifting Institutional Logics, Yiannis Kyratsis, Rifat Atun, Nelson Phillips, Paul Tracey, Gerard George

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

We investigate how established professionals manage their identities in the face of identity threats from a contested shift in the professional logic that characterizes their field. To do so, we draw on interviews with 113 physicians from five European transition countries who faced pressure for change in their professional identities due to a shift in the logic of healthcare from a logic of "narrow specialism" in primary care that characterized the Soviet health system to a new logic of "generalism" that characterizes primary care in the West. We found three important forms of professional identity threats experienced by physicians during ...
