  • Customers' intentions to adopt proximity m-payment services: empirical
           evidence from Greece
    • Authors: Apostolos Giovanis, Evangelos Tsoukatos, Demetris Vrontis
      Pages: 3 - 26
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to analyse the factors that determine consumers' intentions to adopt NFC proximity mobile payment services. An extended version of the decomposed theory of planned behaviour (DTPB), a model that incorporates the most relevant theoretical approaches in the mobile payment adoption literature was selected to investigate the consumer's adoption process. To empirically test the proposed model's nomological validity, data were collected from 513 consumers of mobile internet service providers in Greece and were analysed using PLS. The results indicated that consumers' <i>attitude</i> about the NFC proximity mobile payment services is the main driver of consumers' intentions to use it, followed by their normative, control and risk beliefs. As far as the behavioural intentions determinants' structure is concerned, consumer's perception about service attributes compatibility and performance (i.e., usefulness, easiness, and reduced riskiness), the availability of knowledge, resources, and opportunities necessary for using the service and the support of the interpersonal and the external social context toward the usage of the technology found to be adoption facilitators. Theoretical and managerial implications, limitations and suggestions for further research are provided at the end of the study.

  • Organisational ambidexterity, hard power management and smart power
           management at Amazon, a case study
    • Authors: Apostolos Giovanis, Evangelos Tsoukatos, Demetris Vrontis
      Pages: 27 - 40
      Abstract: This paper examines the management practices of Amazon one of the most successful companies in the world in the last 20 years. The paper presents first hand reviews from Amazon workers on working at Amazon. The employee reviews indicate that with regard to its blue collar workers, the workers in the fulfilment centres, Amazon follows a hard power management approach. With regard to its white collar workers, the workers in the high-tech units, Amazon attempts to implement smart power management by giving workers the ability to innovate and develop their ideas. This dichotomy is an example of organisational ambidexterity separation at Amazon. However, even by some of the white collar workers, the management practices are hard power management and not smart power management. Most likely, Amazon would be better served if it implemented a smart power management style throughout the company.
      Keywords: Amazon; exploration management; exploitation management; smart power management; Jeff Bezos; organisational ambidexterity; hard power; soft power

  • Evolutions in manufacturing cost deployment
    • Authors: Guido Giovando, Chiara Crovini, Stefano Venturini
      Pages: 41 - 52
      Abstract: The paper investigates the development of cost deployment and focuses specifically on the new aspects of this methodology as well as on the tangible benefit it brings within a world class manufacturing (WCM) strategy. The research was conducted through a case study involving a plant of a multinational firm and presents findings regarding two specific research questions investigating the differences between current methodology and previous theories and practices and the ability to track cost savings. Our research suggests that cost deployment methodology has evolved from the framework previously developed and it can impact positively on manufacturing firms in terms of overall efficiency and quality. The research has strong practical implications for both managers and entrepreneurs. Future developments of this research are fundamental to test our hypotheses in other organisations

  • Socially responsible strategies in SMEs: a study in six European
           countries
    • Authors: Zhanna S. Belyaeva, Edyta Rudawska, Yana Lopatkova
      Pages: 53 - 70
      Abstract: This paper seeks to assess the management practices and to pinpoint drivers of socially responsible strategies for small and medium-sized businesses in the food industry in Western and Eastern European countries. The study revealed same features and differences in the CSR practice in SMEs operating in countries with different levels of socio-economic development. The analysis singled factors that influence the application of social responsibility in SMEs at most: the level of depth and agile approach to business performance. The methodology is based on extended 5Ps social marketing index and analyses quantitative data to outline the social responsibility strategy from the SMEs perspective in 6 different countries. The quantitative data have been collected using an online questionnaire collecting 750 entries, which were analysed using Stata software, and also qualitatively verified. This new assessment approach to the socially responsible concept provides rich material that can be explored to identify correlations between CSR and desired business performance indicators for SMEs.

  • Valuation of renewable energy investments: an explanatory mixed-methods
           study about applied approaches amongst practitioners
    • Authors: Christian Hürlimann, Jasim Al-Ali, Dolores S. Bengoa
      Pages: 71 - 114
      Abstract: The purpose of this explanatory, sequential, mixed-methods study is to learn about the applied valuation processes for renewable energy investments to explore key value drivers, best practice approaches and improvements amongst Swiss and German investment professionals. The results demonstrate that both systematic and unsystematic risks are relevant. Risk preferences and subsequently valuation are clearly influenced by experienced materialisation of risk. Discounted cash flow (DCF)-based valuation is state of the art in this valuation, while encountered risks are adjusted either in the cash flows or in the applied discount rate. The internal rate of return (IRR) approach is most frequently applied, predominantly within a simplified flow to equity (FTE) valuation approach. Market participants surprisingly still use the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) of the investing company, mostly as a basis for defining hurdle rates. For assessing investments' value protection abilities and performing impairment tests, the less known but more consistent DCF-based certainty equivalent (CE) and adjusted present value (APV) approaches could be introduced.

  • Big data in SMEs – findings of an empirical study
    • Authors: Bernd Britzelmaier, Carolin Graue, Matthias Sterk
      Pages: 115 - 134
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to provide an analysis of the relevance, challenges and potentials of big data analytics for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Germany. Big data is a comparatively young topic and the literature indicates that little research has addressed big data in SMEs in a German context. Given the lack of knowledge in this field, this paper follows a rather explorative approach. Based on literature review there is a research gap for SMEs in terms of relevance of big data analytics, of affiliated challenges and risks as well as opportunities and potentials and responsibility issues. Following a multi-perspective approach, twelve experts with various backgrounds were interviewed in order to get a holistic view of the topic. Half of them are employed in SMEs, whereas the other six experts come from external consultancies and academic institutions.

  • Venture capitalists and the internationalisation of new ventures – a
           Portuguese case study
    • Authors: Paulo Ribeiro, Raquel Meneses
      Pages: 135 - 160
      Abstract: Internationalisation is widely believed to be a very relevant dimension in companies across countries. Nevertheless, operating abroad might not be easy for new ventures. This study approached venture capitalist (VC) intervention in these firms. It comprises two main points of view: the VC's perspective and that of the INV. According to the VCs, industry knowledge, prior international experience or syndicated investments are some of the VC's most important characteristics operating abroad. However, for INVs, the VC's support is not considered important overcoming the international constraints, since there are no significant differences between backed and non-backed firms. There are a dissonance between what VCs believe are offering and what backed-firms are getting from this support. Nevertheless, this work includes a contribution of the changes in the backed firm's management team and the industry experts' role on the board. These changes are associated to the degree to which internationalisation occurs in companies.

  • Networked establishment processes in transition economies
    • Authors: Aihie Osarenkhoe, Daniella Fjellström, Desalegn Abraha, Gabriel Baffour Awuah
      Pages: 161 - 177
      Abstract: The purpose of this article is to examine the establishment processes of Scania in Croatia and Statoil in Estonia applying a model developed from the network approach. The findings show that Statoil's ability to leverage significant actors in its network to support its establishment made the process less cumbersome and less resource-consuming. Scania's lack of home- and host country support, on the other hand, resulted in an arduous and costly process, with its market position changing several times as different problems cropped up. We also found that relationship orientation requires adaptation by the firm and, more critically, by its managers. A lack of cross-cultural competence is also observed to be an impeding factor in the process.

  • An experiential learning program for entrepreneurship education
    • Authors: Laura Castaldi, Enrica Sepe, Claudio Turi, Valentina Iscaro
      Pages: 178 - 197
      Abstract: Despite extensive research into entrepreneurship education (e.g., Collins et al., 2004; Pittaway and Cope, 2007; Solomon, 2007; Blenker et al., 2014), many studies focus upon pedagogical 'good practice', rather than establishing its effectiveness. As well as achieving the social goals of any curriculum in terms of enabling students to fulfil their potential and ultimately to obtain gainful employment, entrepreneurship can also potentially be evaluated to establish whether it meets its desired objectives or learning outcomes. Our aim, therefore, is to conduct a critical appraisal of how experiential approaches can enhance the achievement of learning outcomes in entrepreneurship education. A partial least square path modelling (PLS-PM) was used to test the relationships involved in the research model.
      Keywords: entrepreneurship education; entrepreneurial learning and outcomes; partial least square path-modelling

  • The success of STEM graduates in entrepreneurship training: a European
           case study
    • Authors: Simona Mihai-Yiannaki, Despina Varnava-Marouchou, Elmos Konis, Vassilia Hadjichristodoulou
      Pages: 198 - 211
      Abstract: Following the results of a two years ERASMUS+, KA2 project, called 'SCIENT: a European university-business alliance aiming to foster young scientists' entrepreneurial spirit', we aim at shedding light on the success story of entrepreneurship training of STEM graduates. Our study research educational methodologies were applied in the project, which ran for 24 months until end of 2017 in seven European Union countries: Cyprus, Malta, Portugal, Lithuania, the UK, Spain and Italy. The project aim was to develop strong entrepreneurial skills for PhD STEM graduates in the quest for alternative professional careers apart from the academic one. The research shows varying feedback responses from three activities: <i>training</i>, <i>internship</i> and <i>mentoring</i> from participants, trainers, and guest speakers. The methodological tools employed are a set of online surveys on 98 participants and 34 trainers from the participating countries. Findings show different countries, presenters, participants, facilities and scheduling provided variable impressions regarding the programme and its specific training modules. There were, however, some wide-ranging agreements across countries and throughout all the programmes. The overall findings indicate a high importance for organised such training programs at STEM graduates level.
