  • DESIGN THINKING AND PRODUCT ROADMAPPING IN THE FOURTH INDUSTRIAL
           REVOLUTION

    • Authors: Rodrigo Lima Verde Leal
      Pages: 3 - 15
      Abstract: The paper employs the combination of design thinking and product mapping approaches for building key skills and capabilities for technology management during the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It presents an overview of the literature of these two approaches, showing a gap in research that proposes their combination. It defines technology roadmapping planning as a human-centred complex problem and proposes a simple three-step sequence to assess when design thinking is applicable. The paper presents the results of using this approach in a business unit in a private non-profit research and development institute. One is the identification of six different, but interlinked, concepts of technology road-mapping that are relevant to stakeholders. The other is a ―Joint Planning‖ experiment, which suggests that road-mapping planning should rely on the co-creation of all relevant stakeholders and should take place in multiples points of the process, in order to grasp any new learning and context that may arise during the execution of the road-mapping initiative

  • FOSTERING A SUSTAINABLE SOCIETY BY INTRODUCING PROJECT MANAGEMENT
           PRACTICES

    • Authors: Luciano Ferreira da Silva, Luciana Magalhães Girardin Pimentel Rodrigues, Nadia Pedrosa Fernandes, Wilson Marcena Rodrigues, Arnoldo Jose de Hoyos Guevara
      Pages: 16 - 26
      Abstract: This conceptual article has as main aim described the project management as a factor to improve the sustainability of society. To do so, it is necessary to understand the project attributes and the changes in perspectives when adopting project management as a practice to promote sustainability. The discussion proposed here uses a heuristic method searching for patterns in the academic literature and in organizations to build arguments that can aid in the dissemination of project management practices. It is worthy to notice that it is not our intention here to deal with these issues in depth, but to encourage a discussion so that issues can be raised and solutions can emerge. Then, in addition to the question of sustainability in project management, we also added a discussion about the incorporation or greater stimulus to the use of project management practices in the public segment. There is a risk of being superficial in the discussion presents here, but the reason to integrated several contents is because it is not possible to describe a more sustainable society without addressing all segments.

  • A DECISION MAKING AID MODEL FOR PROJECT MANAGEMENT: A STRATEGIC DECISION
           PROCESS

    • Authors: Djamil Mohamed, Yu Jintian
      Pages: 27 - 34
      Abstract: The implementation of a decision support system and decision-making plays an important role for the outcome on the objective of a project. As important tools, the knowledge from the internal and external of a project and the experiences of project managers and experts are significant assurances to make a better decision, therefore a better concrete aggregate alternatives decision. The purpose of this paper is the development of a Decision Making Aid model with alternatives decisions and solutions (DMAM) to help the process of decisionmaking. By choosing the most appropriate model and alternatives, the proposed model aims to solve given problems pinpointed on the ―Framework for Classifying the Project Management Research‖. The model takes into account the complexity of the project and the existing alternatives decisions and solutions of previous cases. The results indicate that this model significantly reduces time and marginal error for decision-making

  • ROLE OF NORMATIVE PRESSURES TO ADOPT GREEN SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
           PRACTICES AND THEIR IMPACT ON ENVIRONMENTAL AND ECONOMIC PERFORMANCE

    • Authors: Amer Saeed, H.P. Rasika Priyankara, N.P.G.S.I. Naotunna
      Pages: 35 - 42
      Abstract: Businesses around the globe are facing tremendous pressures to improve their manufacturing practices to minimize their harmful effects on the environment. These pressures are being exerted from different stakeholders but in developing countries mostly there are powerful suppliers and customers, which can change the choices of decision makers in the local industry. According to institutional theory these pressures combined are called normative pressures. By using path modeling this study attempted to find out the role of normative pressures to adopt green supply chain management (GSCM) practices and the impact of those adopted practices on environmental and economic performance of those companies through partial least square (PLS) structural equation modeling (SEM). Data was collected from 134 manufacturing companies in Pakistan through a questionnaire. Path analysis results confirmed that normative pressures have positive and significant impact on adopting the GSCM practices and subsequently these practices improve the environmental performance of the companies in Pakistan. Results also confirmed many existing studies that GSCM practices directly do not improve economic performance but environmental performance does have a significant positive effect on the economic performance

  • DOES STOCK MISPRICING AFFECT THE CORPORATE INVESTMENT DECISIONS'
           EVIDENCE FROM CATERING EFFECT

    • Authors: Muhammad Usman, Sana Saleem, Faiq Mahmood, Humera Imran
      Pages: 43 - 54
      Abstract: Current study finds out the effect of stock mispricing, through catering effect, on corporate investment decisions by taking the sample of firms listed on Pakistan Stock Exchange during the period of 2007-2014. This study uses the methodology of Rhodes-Kropf et al (2005) to measure the stock mispricing who used market to book decomposition methodology to find out different components of mispricing and relate it to corporate investment activity that is measured by capital expenditures. Stockholder investment horizon is measured by share turnover ratio. Panel regression methodology is used to determine the relationship between stock mispricing and corporate investment decisions. Results of the study show that Firms with short horizon investors have significantly higher mispricing sensitivity than the firms with long horizon shareholder. Both sides of mispricing affect the investment but the impact of overvaluation is more than undervaluation because the firms issue shareholder equity more than stock repurchase.

  • TOTAL FACTOR OF PRODUCTIVITY AND ITS COMPONENTS: EVIDENCE FROM CEMENT -
           AND ENERGY SECTORS OF PAKISTAN

    • Authors: Razzi Abbas Jafri, Shahbaz Khan, Muhammad Haroon Shah, Nida Baig
      Pages: 55 - 73
      Abstract: This study employs “Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA)” method to calculate the “Total Factor Productivity (TFP)” growth and its components of 19 non-financial firms from Cement and Energy sectors of Pakistan listed on ISE-100 Index during the time period 20052011. The research focuses on to identify the factors like, technical change and technical efficiency change tends to influence the TFP of cement -and energy sectors of Pakistan. We use hand collected data from the annual reports of these non-financial firms included in our sample. Results show that cement sector has an overall positive TFP growth of 9.7%, and energy sector has an overall TFP growth of 1.5% during the study period. The study may assist us to recognize the extent to which these components can affect the TFP of a sector, and will further help us to explore new ways to boost up the productivity of these sectors which in turn may be beneficial to move country towards a sustainable path.

           WORLD

    • Authors: Marisa Moser, Mauri Aparecido de Oliveira
      Pages: 85 - 110
      Abstract: Innovation can be defined as the implementation of a new or significantly improved product (good or service), or a process, a new marketing method, a new organizational  method in business practices, workplace organization, or external relations. This innovation can be measured by several factors such as investments in research and development, the concentration of high-tech companies traded on the stock exchange, among others. The present study aims to perform a cluster analysis to investigate the behavior of the most innovative countries when compared to Brazil. The study contemplates a historical series from the years 2012 to 2015 of the 30 most innovative countries in the world having been added to Brazil. In addition, a series of macroeconomic, political and social variables.
