  • The networks-innovation-firm performance relationship: does it hold good
           in Indian pharmaceutical industry?
    • Authors: Abhishek Nirjar, Manaswini Acharya, Aniruddha
      Pages: 399 - 423
      Abstract: This research is set in the Indian pharmaceutical industry and presents the impact of networks both social and business on innovation and impact of these parameters on firms' performance. The study also considered the impact of firm age on the networks and innovation capability of the firm. Data for 140 firms was captured from Capitaline database. The results have shown positive association between business networks and its impact on innovation capabilities of the firm. Networks-social and business, have a positive association with firm performance while R&D expenditure was found to have a positive impact on firm performance. The impact of patents however has been found to be insignificant as the Indian pharmaceutical industry is more focused on developing the generic drugs. Firm age is found to have a positive impact on networks, while it is not significant for R&D expenditure as firms are taking the alliance route.

  • WLB model and performance measurement: evidence with private hospital
           women nurses in Ghana milieu
    • Authors: P. Subburethina Bharathi, K. Mohamed Jasim, K. Santhanalakshmi, David Boohene
      Pages: 424 - 452
      Abstract: The result of the study which indicates that, women nurses of private hospitals in Ghana context are able to support their hobbies, household activities, study; care for self, however, shopping for necessaries and attending family functions is one of the key areas the respondents are missing. If attending a social function is also recognised as one of the work life balance variables, it will help better job satisfaction of nurses. The majority of the women nurses in the private hospitals in Ghana context, Ghana are satisfied with different dimensions with respect to work logistics. It has been confirmed by the researcher while discussing with the nursing staff, they did express satisfaction over work logistics provided by hospitals. Skipping food and drug abuse are likely to be major lifestyle choice issues, which may impact health of nursing staff while other dimensions are not perceived as likely problems in future. Provision of canteen facilities with adequately stopped nutrition diet is likely to health.

  • Exploring how and why consumers create unintended uses of products
    • Authors: P. Subburethina Bharathi, K. Mohamed Jasim, K. Santhanalakshmi, David Boohene
      Pages: 453 - 470
      Abstract: The use of products for unintended purposes is prevalent among consumers, and can generate ideas for product improvement and new product development for the firm. However, little is known about how and why people create novel uses outside the regular context. Based on consumer experiences, this study aims to discover patterns of creative reuse of existing products and to understand consumer motives and outcomes. The qualitative data revealed that creative reuse is based on knowledge about product attributes, categories and users, and on individual preference. Respondents are motivated by economic benefits and need for cognition and pleasure. The findings reveal that creative reuse helps increase product value and consumer engagement with a product.

  • Sustainable management methods: performance assessment in large
           companies
    • Authors: Maria João Cardoso Vieira Machado, Joana Alexandra Guerreiro Fortunato
      Pages: 471 - 485
      Abstract: The general objective of this study is to contribute to the understanding of the performance evaluation methods used by large companies. As specific objectives, we have the following: to identify the methods used and the importance attributed to them; to analyse their implementation process and the level of success given to it. The data collection method used was a survey to the financial managers of the largest companies in Portugal, which resulted in 35 valid responses. The main contributions of this study were the associations found between the following variables: the method used and the level of importance assigned to it; the person in charge of implementing the method and training provided to employees; the method used and the degree of success attributed to its implementation; the degree of resistance to change and the degree of success in implementing the performance evaluation method.

  • Road to employee commitment: the role of empowerment, leadership and
           culture
    • Authors: Resmi Ann Thomas, Sandhya Pentareddy, L. Suganthi, Gemini V. Joy, S.P. Anbuudayasankar
      Pages: 486 - 506
      Abstract: This exploratory research seeks to identify the relationships between the leadership, empowerment and commitment within the integrated model of competing values framework (CVF) of organisational culture. A conceptual model which relates the constructs to commitment is developed. The study attempts to use a social constructionist approach and scenario planning, which falls under the broader realm of qualitative analysis. Hypothetical cases are used to develop two scenarios. The study proposes an integrated model of CVF, and also provides greater understanding of the competencies required in the organisation to move from one competing value quadrant to another. The paper helps managers gain better understanding of managerial roles, their inter-relationships to each other and how to apply them more effectively. It further develops an understanding by providing a model of how to transform an organisation to be a self-sustained one. The study also brings forth a constructive approach in management.

      Abstract: This paper aims to analyse the maturity of the Brazilian entrepreneurial ecosystem based on the opinions and insights from business incubator professionals. To this end, a survey was performed with 74 professionals who published at least one paper related to this topic in Brazil. The maturity analysis was based on a theoretical model with variables to be measured for the incubators in six major constructs: support, government, finance, human capital, culture and market. Data was analysed through structural equation modelling, which allowed for a statistic validation of the model. With this validation, it was possible to analyse the maturity notes assigned to each variable and conclude that the Brazilian entrepreneurial ecosystem has an intermediate level of maturity, with some possible improvements. The originality of this study lies both in the assessment carried out and in the use of this particular statistical technique for this purpose.
