Readings In Innovation, Arcot Desai Narasimhalu

Arcot Desai NARASIMHALU

This is a collection of practice oriented papers that I had written from 2005 – 2010 and published in relevant conferences. The papers were written primarily to share my experiences as an innovator and an innovation manager over thirty five years of my professional life. They are a collection of frameworks, heuristic algorithms and processes that I have penned down from my experience. They are neither theories nor only options available to innovators and innovation managers. This is yet another offering in the world of “Innovation Buffet” that innovators could consume.

Designing The Value Curve For Your Next Innovation, Arcot Desai Narasimhalu

Arcot Desai NARASIMHALU

This paper introduces an additional feature to the Strategy Canvas and Value Curve that will make innovation designers more effective. The new feature is to let the innovators carry out the designs of their new innovations taking into account both the cost of improving the quality of a parameter that the users value highly and the savings accrued from the drop in provisioning for parameters that users place less emphasis in an innovation.

Is The Law An Asset?, Fiacra P. Mcdonnell, Thomas Power

The peculiar nature of the US Federal Constitution impinges on the implementation of any federal legislation. The tenth amendment to the US Constitution lays down that powers "not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the States respectively...." What this amendment means is that political authority is vested in the states unless preempted by the federal government. The most obvious example of federal pre-emption is that of equal rights legislation for African Americans. Such federal action has traditionally come about as a result of the perceived failure of states …


The Paradoxical Effect Of Permitting Emissions, Fiacra P. McDonnell, Thomas Power 2011 Technological University Dublin

The Paradoxical Effect Of Permitting Emissions, Fiacra P. Mcdonnell, Thomas Power

Other Resources

Progress has been made from the "either-or-scenario", whereby environmentalists regarded the market as an implacable enemy. The market is instead proving to be a potentially powerful ally. The rigidity of the traditional regulatory system with its mandatory approach is far from the ideal. An economic incentives approach has special merit in that it allows polluters a certain freedom of choice in the matter of compliance with pollution thresholds. This has important implications in the area of information. One of the barriers to perfect information is the private nature of information. Freedom of choice of policy in regard to achieving environmental …


Examining Scholarly Influence: A Study In Hirsch Metrics And Social Network Analysis, Hirotoshi Takeda 2011 Georgia State University

Examining Scholarly Influence: A Study In Hirsch Metrics And Social Network Analysis, Hirotoshi Takeda

Computer Information Systems Dissertations

This dissertation research is focused on how we, as researchers, ‘influence’ others researchers. In particular, I am concerned with the notion of what constitutes the ‘influence’ of a scholar and how ‘influence’ is conferred upon scholars. This research is concerned with the construct called ‘scholarly influence’. Scholarly influence is of interest because a clear “theory of scholarly influence” does not yet exist. Rather a number of surrogate measures or concepts that are variable are used to evaluate the value of one’s academic work. ‘Scholarly influence’ is broken down into ‘ideational influence’ or the influence that one has through publication and …

Purposeful Engagement Of First-Year Division I Student-Athletes, Keith Harrison 2011 University of Central Florida

Purposeful Engagement Of First-Year Division I Student-Athletes, Keith Harrison

Dr. C. Keith Harrison

This study examined the extent to which transitioning, first-year student-athletes engage in educationally sound activities in college. The sample included 147 revenue and nonrevenue first-year student-athletes who were surveyed at four large Division 1-A universities. Findings revealed that revenue and nonrevenue first-year student athletes differed regarding their academic and athletic identities. Transitioning revenue student-athletes rated themselves as having slightly higher athletic identities, yet lower academic identities compared to their nonrevenue counterparts. The findings from this study also indicated that the kinds of effective educational practices that first-year student-athletes engage in have a positive influence on their academic self-concept. These findings …

Best–Worst Scaling Approach To Predict Customer Choice For 3pl, Tim Coltman, Timothy Devinney, Byron Keating 2011 University of Wollongong

Best–Worst Scaling Approach To Predict Customer Choice For 3pl, Tim Coltman, Timothy Devinney, Byron Keating

Tim Coltman

This study describes a simple, theoretically based methodology to analyze the nature of customer demand for third-party logistics provider service components. The method overcomes limitations in prior studies and enables us to examine the relative importance of product and service attributes as they pertain to the choice of third-party logistics providers. Two distinct types of customers populate our data: those professing operational attributes and those seeking relational attributes. The theoretical and practical implications are that improved supply chain models can be developed when separate demand structures are taken into account.
