  • A model for testing the relationship between company's size and
           performance: a cross country analysis
    • Authors: Elisa Giacosa, Alberto Ferraris, Alberto Mazzoleni, Demetris Vrontis
      Pages: 524 - 543
      Abstract: The purpose is to verify whether the company's size (in terms of production value) could be considered as a relevant factor in impacting company performance, taking into consideration the country variable. Italian and German companies have been compared. The country factor (considering its structural and economic characteristics that are different from the company's size) has a primary importance in determining the differences of performance between German and Italian companies. There is a weak relationship between the companies' performance and their size. Size factor is not one of the main factors that explain why the performance of the German companies is better than Italian ones. Global differences are mainly due to the structural and economic characteristics of each country and, in residual form, due to different size of the companies operating in those two countries. The research is characterised by several theoretical and practical implications, especially for top management and investors.
      Keywords: Italian companies; German companies; company's size; company's performance; profitability; financial debt repayment

  • Determinants of technological and no-technological innovation in
           SMEs: the case of Crete
    • Authors: Evangelos Tsoukatos, Efthalia Tabouratzi, Konstantinos Vassakis, Christos Lemonakis
      Pages: 544 - 557
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the drivers of both technological and non-technological innovation on evidence from a sample of manufacturing SMEs in the region of Crete (Greece) during a period of economic turbulence. Using probit models the drivers of innovation, both technological and non-technological, are examined. The empirical results of the study indicate that SMEs' innovation activity is driven primarily by firm-specific features such as marketing, financial performance, exporting activity and R&D. The contribution of this study rests on the investigation of determinants for both technological and no-technological innovation in contrast to the majority of published research that focuses primarily on technological innovation. In addition, to the extent that innovation is unanimously, considered significant for firms' overall performance, findings of the study provide implications for practitioners, managers and policy makers to become appropriately equipped for addressing the challenges of the unstable market environment that enterprises operate in.

  • How to measure the efficiency of the diffusion of innovation in the supply
           chain - proposed methodology
    • Authors: Evangelos Tsoukatos, Efthalia Tabouratzi, Konstantinos Vassakis, Christos Lemonakis
      Pages: 558 - 572
      Abstract: This is a conceptual paper, based on a literature review. The contribution of this paper consists of providing a methodology for measuring the efficiency of the diffusion of innovation in the supply chain. Based on an analysis of existing literature, a new original methodology, including a measurement matrix and a synthetic indicator, has been developed. Research based on the proposed methodology has not been done yet. However, it is hoped that the paper will stimulate a scientific debate on two questions: firstly, whether the availability of a common methodology may ensure the comparability of data within an industry, as well as between industries, taking into account their distinguishing characteristics; and, secondly, on whether the above data will prove useful in the development of a set of best practices for the diffusion of innovation in the supply chain. The proposed model needs to be applied in practice, since this is the only way to test its usefulness.
      Keywords: diffusion of innovation; innovation in the supply chain; methodology; efficiency measurement; indicators; innovation diffusion efficiency measurement matrix; classification of innovation in the supply chain; theoretical study

  • Utilisation of emotional intelligence in the retail banking sector - a
           preliminary model for Lebanon
    • Authors: Grace Al Khoury, Alkis Thrassou, Hans Ruediger Kaufmann
      Pages: 582 - 601
      Abstract: Emotional intelligence (EI) has been the subject of much controversy over the years consequent to its significance and widespread utilisation in business, as well as due to the ways it has been defined and labelled since the 19th century. Given the fact that emotional intelligence can have a major impact on the retail banking sector, a culturally-driven perspective is deemed significant, especially in the context of Lebanon - a market that appears to fit no existing model of emotional intelligence. Thus, the aim of this research is to create a preliminary model of emotional intelligence that fits the Lebanese retail banking sector (LRBS), through a combination of existing models, interviews, theoretical research and secondary data. The research findings have identified and inter-related Lebanese-specific cultural variables to be further empirically researched towards an evaluation of their significance regarding individuals' EI. The research further developed a preliminary model of EI for the LRBS, comprising general variables, Lebanese-specific variables, and EI skills. The value of the research stems from its contribution to knowledge on the role and significance of EI in the LRBS, as well as from its setting of the foundation for future research that will refine, test and finalise this model.

  • Italian credit cooperative banks: the fundamental role in supporting the
           growth of SMEs and family businesses
    • Authors: Chiara Crovini, Giovanni Ossola, Guido Giovando
      Pages: 602 - 611
      Abstract: Our research concentrates on the role of Italian credit cooperative banks, supporting the entrepreneurship and the development of SMEs and family businesses. We took into consideration the data of loans, allocated by those banks in 2014. We tried to find the relationship between the banking system and the world of SMEs and family businesses. This research represents the first step of a far deeper analysis. In this stage, we aimed at providing the groundwork for further empirical and qualitative analyses. Therefore, we try to improve the existing literature by using a conceptual approach. Despite the limitations of this research, researchers in the field of SMEs and credit cooperative banks can consider the opportunities for further developments of our analysis. Our findings give evidence that SMEs and family businesses need the support of the credit cooperative banks, in order to further exploit the opportunity to expand their businesses.

  • The antecedents and consequences of Lovemarks: a study of the attitudes
           and perceptions of football club fans
    • Authors: Avichai Shuv-Ami, Ioanna Papasolomou, Demetris Vrontis
      Pages: 612 - 633
      Abstract: The paper discusses the findings that emerged from a quantitative research study carried out among 1,300 Israeli football fans to explore their brand relationships and the 'purchase' decision process towards their football clubs. The findings show that commitment and sport spectator identity have a mediating effect on the relationship between Lovemarks and fans' intentions, favourable word-of-mouth communication and the fans' willingness to pay premium prices for football tickets. Lovemarks have a positive effect on the sport spectators' identity and commitment. Purchase intention, commitment and identity explained 55% of the variance of the football fans' willingness to pay premium prices for football tickets. Lovemarks, image and knowledge are critical drivers for the purchase decision-making process adopted by the fans which, suggests that football clubs have an opportunity to positively influence their fans' attitudes and behaviour through: the use of mass-media advertising, the use of social media marketing and football matches that provide spectators with unique and unforgettable experiences.

  • Internal CSR practices within the SME sector in Cyprus from the
           employees' perspective - challenges and prospects
    • Authors: Ioanna Papasolomou, Haris Kountouros, Yioula Melanthiou
      Pages: 634 - 649
      Abstract: This paper examines the results of a recent study into four domains of internal corporate social responsibility (CSR) practices within small and medium-sized companies in Cyprus from the employees' perspective. This perspective gives an added insight into the developing CSR practices in Cyprus, revealing interesting findings about the sufficiency (or not) of current practices. Looking into the results of the study, as well as into a number of policy initiatives considered in the relevant national action plan on CSR, we seek to draw some conclusions on the prospects for further developing internal CSR practices across SMEs. We argue that a more active policy framework is needed. Considering the very small size of most Cypriot companies, current, or foreseen, legal requirements relevant to CSR do not apply to the majority of Cypriot businesses. This very fact raises a particular challenge for the development of CSR practices on the island. In light of this, we argue that voluntary CSR initiatives remain of primary importance, yet these should be developed within a broader framework which promotes cooperation between the various stakeholders.

  • The acquisition of entrepreneurial competencies in a virtual platform: a
           structural equation model
    • Authors: Valentina Iscaro, Laura Castaldi, Enrica Sepe, Claudio Turi
      Pages: 650 - 666
      Abstract: The goal of this work is to contribute to studies that aim to boost entrepreneurship education through the analysis and implementation of the virtual platform ExperimentaLab as a tool to support the activity of universities favouring entrepreneurship. There is a significant and substantial consensus that entrepreneurship is a skill that can be developed through education. Education should provide an innovative learning environment, thus helping students develop entrepreneurial competencies. In this vein, we designed and realised the ExperimentaLab. To test it and evaluate its educational impact, we ran simulations by role play. Data were analysed through structural equation model PLS-path modelling approach, showing that the designed structure of the ExperimentaLab fosters the acquisition of entrepreneurial competencies by would-be entrepreneurs.

  • Linking entrepreneurial orientation to brand reputation
    • Authors: Orlando Lima Rua, Alexandra França
      Pages: 667 - 678
      Abstract: The relationship between entrepreneurial orientation (EO) and firm performance has a broad scholarly acceptance. However, scant evidence is available on how EO influences other variables, namely intangible assets. In this vein and in light of the resource-based approach, we hypothesise a positive relationship between EO and brand reputation. Based on survey data from 42 Portuguese small and medium enterprises (SME's), we find empirical support that globally EO has a positive and significant influence on brand reputation, and that the EO's dimension that most contribute is innovativeness. Overall, this study provides novel insights into EO and reputational resources literature.

  • Population, immigration and growth in a Romer endogenous growth model
    • Authors: Orlando Lima Rua, Alexandra França
      Pages: 679 - 708
      Abstract: Endogenous growth theory has not yet consistently incorporated population growth or immigration into its models. As a result, in the present day, there is no universally accepted endogenous growth model explaining the empirical observed relationships between growth, population and immigration. The present paper overcomes this inconvenience by designing a fully specified Romer endogenous growth model, completely micro-founded, that incorporates the existence of population growth and immigration and that allows the stylised facts of growth as well as the relationships between growth, population and immigration to be explained. In addition, the proposed model is susceptible to calibration and simulation, and, when applied to the US economy, provides a good fit to the data.

  • Does domain specific consumer innovativeness vary with consumers'
           individual cultural orientation?
    • Authors: Bahtisen Kavak, Ayca Turhan, Canan Eryigit
      Pages: 709 - 723
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine whether the level of consumer innovativeness differs in individual level cultural dimensions namely, uncertainty avoidance, individualism, masculinity, power distance, and long term orientation. A survey research was conducted in order to measure domain specific innovativeness for mobile phone consumers and individual level cultural dimensions. In order to test the differences among more and less innovative consumers cluster analysis and t tests were employed. The results of t tests indicated that there are significant differences in cultural orientations among more and less innovative consumers. More (less) innovative consumers have lower (higher) uncertainty avoidance, and lower (higher) power distance and they hold more (less) individualistic and masculine values.
