  • Factors Affecting the Adoption of HRIS: An Empirical Study Using Extended
           UTAUT2 Model

    • Abstract: Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) have become indispensable in modern businesses, reshaping the landscape of Human Resource (HR) service delivery. Despite their crucial role, the adoption and implementation of HRIS present persistent challenges influenced by diverse factors. This study delves into the adoption dynamics of HRIS and their practical utilization in developing countries, specifically in Bangladesh. Leveraging the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model, the research incorporates Hedonic Motivation (HM) and Personal Innovativeness (PI) as additional factors, forming an extended UTAUT2 model. Employing a quantitative approach, survey data was collected from 255 respondents, including top-level management, HR professionals, and executives from public and private organizations in Chittagong and Dhaka, Bangladesh. Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) with the partial least squares (PLS) method through SmartPLS was employed for model validation. Results reveal that all selected parameters exert a positive and direct influence on HRIS adoption. The results aim to enhance comprehension of the intricate aspects of HRIS adoption, providing valuable insights for organizations to tailor implementation strategies. These findings are pertinent for policymakers and HR managers, offering insights into overcoming obstacles associated with HRIS adoption and optimizing HR practices, thereby contributing to organizational performance improvements.

  • Does the Long-Term Developmental Effect of Mergers and Acquisitions and
           Greenfield Investment Differ in Host African Economies'

    • Abstract: The choice between greenfield investment (GFIELDI) and mergers and acquisitions (M&As) is rarely straightforward for host developing countries (DCs), as this subject has not been thoroughly researched. Thus, this study fills this gap in the literature. It compares the overall long-term dynamic effect of GFIELDI and M&As on host African countries (ACs) from 1990 to 2020. The study, in particular, adopted a rigorous analytical framework that optimizes the welfare-decreasing and welfare-increasing effects of these two main FDI entry modes in the countries under study. The study used panel data from 15 African countries and adopted the PMG/ARDL approach. Therefore, the empirical findings of this study surprisingly contradict not only the preferred GFIELDI entry option of governments and development partners but also nearly all of the existing empirical literature in other developing regions. The results specifically demonstrate that while M&As outperform the GFIELDI in terms of their size effects, they both have net positive long-term dynamic effects on real GDP per capita in the studied countries. In practical terms, a 1% increase in GFIELDI has, on average, a weaker positive long-term dynamic effect on real GDP per capita than an equivalent investment in M&As. Except for Malawi and Botswana, evidence shows that the speed of adjustment parameter is consistently negative and statistically significant. South Africa (SA) has the lowest adjustment speed rate (=-0.157), while Morocco has the highest (=-1.554). Our findings have important policy implications, which are outlined in the conclusion of this study.

  • Strategic Intelligence of Small and Medium Enterprises Embedded in Global
           Supply Chains: A Framework for Resilience in the Face of Systemic Risks

    • Abstract: This study highlights the challenges and resilience of SMEs embedded in global supply chains that are vulnerable to systemic risks. SMEs, constituting a significant portion of the global economy, have been largely overlooked in supply chain resilience literature. Faced with crises like the COVID-19 pandemic or geopolitical tensions, SMEs often adopt a wait-and-see approach, seeking to reduce uncertainty before making tangible commitments. Our proposed conceptual framework highlights strategic intelligence as a key dynamic capability to diminish uncertainty, reduce the waiting time for SMEs, and prompt them to commit tangible resources to restore balance in a new context. Three sub-capabilities of strategic intelligence are identified: supply network visibility, environmental sensing, and timely responsiveness. External moderating determinants, such as external social capital and government support, can also help overcome the limitations of SMEs' internal resources. This study calls for future empirical research to explore these relationships and address current gaps in the understanding of SMEs' supply chain resilience. It particularly encourages testing this model using the Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) approach. By focusing on strategic intelligence, inter-organizational resource sharing, and government support, it provides practical insights for managers and policymakers, emphasizing the importance of enhancing SME resilience in the face of systemic disruptions. This, in turn, contributes to the resilience of our economies in an increasingly complex and uncertain world.

  • Internationalization Process of an Angolan Beverage Company in Portugal

    • Abstract: The internationalization process of companies from African countries, whose participation in international trade has been highlighted in academic research and international business, is a recent phenomenon. This research aimed to investigate the internationalization process of Angolan beverage companies. This study seeks to identify the facilitating and hindering factors during the internationalization process and the main results. This exploratory research uses the qualitative approach based on the case study method. The main findings of this research showed that Refriango’s internationalization process in the Portuguese market took place through a strategic alliance, considering that its process was slow and gradual. Another factor facilitating the internationalization process was the Angolans’ cultural and linguistic proximity in Portugal. Main factors that hinder the internationalization process, high costs of production and exports from Angola, lack of infrastructure, and difficulty in achieving strategic objectives only with sales in the domestic market are considered. Building alliances for African companies and those few experienced in this process is essential to success because it allows them to avoid mishaps and reduce possible risks.

  • Political Discourse Analysis in Deliberative Processes: Application to the
           Public Debate on Mineral Waters in Brazil

    • Abstract: Two Brazilian cities in the southern region of the state of Minas Gerais have engaged in public debate on the exploitation of their mineral waters by the private sector, with prompted contestation from organised civil society and other actors to the governmental decision. This study aimed to analyse that public debate using the theoretical-methodological approach of argument analysis within critical discourse analysis (CDA). A news report and a legal text formed the corpus of analysis as representative of ongoing argumentations because these discourses can influence public policy decision-making. The results showed how the controversy is rooted mainly in the conflict of values between two parties – on the one hand, the concern over sustainability and environmental conservation, cultural identity, the concept of water as a common good, and the defence of public participation and, on the other hand, the predominance of values focused on economic development and the efficiency of financial management of resources.

  • Enhancing the Performance of Healthcare Organizations: An Applied Analysis
           of Digital Technologies and Sustainability

    • Abstract: Over the last two decades, scholars attempted to implement models to evaluate the effectiveness of digital technologies management in healthcare organizations balanced by its compliance with sustainability. However, a managerial framework for assessing digital technologies’ contribution to healthcare organizations’ performance is still lacking. Evidence-based research on digital and mobile technologies applied in the daily life environments of people over 65 in Italy has been implemented. Results were investigated by a) SWOT analysis and b) identifying the key performance indicators to evaluate the performance of healthcare organizations by following the implementation of digital technologies in healthcare processes in a sustainable perspective. The analysis reveals that some weaknesses can be overcome (e.g., the availability of GPs to be involved in the enrollment of the patients) while others cannot (e.g., systematic limitations of digital methodologies). At the same time, some threats can be tackled (e.g., users’ and operators’ difficulty adapting to technological developments) while others can only approximately be solved. Evidenced key performance indicators can be leveraged to carry out standardized assessments related to the digital practices implemented by healthcare organizations to achieve a fully developed sustainable relational ecosystem and generate a more efficient and effective healthcare organization system.

  • Enhancing Operational Efficiency and Cash Flow through Supply Chain
           Optimization in the Oil and Gas Sector

    • Abstract: The oil and gas industry continues to play a vital role in meeting the world's energy needs. As renewable energy sources gain traction, there is an imperative to refine operational models, prioritizing sustainability, and cost-effectiveness. This study employs a comprehensive conceptual framework integrating critical analysis of business scenarios, product positioning, and market segmentation. The study adopts supply network optimization, encompassing demand forecasting, inventory management, transportation, production scheduling, cash flow management, and data analytics. The research evaluates three supply models: Satellite Manufacturing, Hub Manufacturing, and Contract Manufacturing. It employs scenario analysis to assess the impact of supply chain strategies on operating and cash cycles. The analysis reveals that Hub- based contract manufacturing is the most effective model. The research demonstrates that optimizing supply networks directly influences the operating and cash cycles of companies in the Oil and Gas industry. By reducing inventory levels, optimizing supplier payment terms, and streamlining production processes, organizations can achieve cost savings, improve efficiency, and enhance cash flow management. The study underscores the importance of thorough analysis and strategic decision-making in selecting supply chain models to enhance cost efficiency, operational effectiveness, and cash flow management. The study is limited to midstream and downstream services and may vary based on industry contexts. Future research could explore additional supply chain strategies across different sectors. This research contributes to the sustainable consumption and value co-creation literature by offering practical insights for businesses operating in the oil and gas industry or similar contexts. It provides a framework for optimizing supply chain models to improve cost efficiency and cash flow management, thereby enhancing overall business performance.

  • Women on Board and ESG Performance: Insights from the Italian Utilities
           Sector

    • Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between gender diversity and environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance in the Italian utilities sector. The study examines whether the presence of women on the board of directors (BoD) is related to ESG dimensions. We analyzed a sample of 482 utility companies for the period 2018-2022 and we developed an econometric model applying unbalanced panel regression data with firm fixed effects and controls per year. Within a multivariate regression model, the authors considered the ESG score provided by Refinitiv Eikon to test the research hypotheses. Findings show that the presence of women on board of directors improves ESG performance when a critical mass of female board members (at least three) is reached. A critical threshold of female directors also positively influences the scoring of environmental and social pillars. From a managerial perspective this study draws attention to BoD composition encouraging utility companies to define internal corporate governance mechanisms thoroughly. The overall findings support managers, policy makers and regulators on how to improve ESG performance through gender diversity on BoD. This paper offers an in-depth examination of the ESG practices of utility firms, and it attempts to bridge the gap in prior literature on the determinants of ESG performance in the Italian utilities sector. This study is the first that investigates the relationship between board gender diversity and ESG performance in such a context exploring how a critical mass of women on BoD affects ESG dimensions.

  • Asymmetric Learning in Successive Mergers and Acquisitions: Overconfidence
           and Loss Aversion

    • Abstract: Using data from 865 acquisition events launched by Chinese A-share listed companies between 2013 and 2019, we divide the dataset into two subsamples: first-time merger successes and first-time merger failures. For firms that experienced initial merger success, we find the outcomes of their subsequent merger activities to be negative, as managerial overconfidence hindered the assimilation of valuable insights from the initial successful experience. Conversely, in the case of firms that encountered initial merger failure, managerial loss aversion stimulated a learning process that led to improved performance in subsequent merger endeavors. Asymmetric learning effects are observed to significantly impact the merger outcomes of serial acquirers. Further analysis reveals that managerial age plays a role in optimizing this asymmetric learning effect.
