  • The Effect of Service Quality on Spectators’ Behavioral Intensions in
           Professional Football: The Role of Value and Satisfaction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Papadopoulos G. Nikolaos, Kargidis Theodoros
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      The importance of quality for an organization has been highlighted by many researchers. The service quality of sports organizations is conceptualized by the dimensions of technical (outcome) and functional (process-related) qualities as a significant element of sport product. The purpose of this study is to investigate the level of service quality provided by Greek professional sports clubs, through the satisfaction of spectators, the perceived value and the ability to predict their intentions of behavior. The survey included 940 fans of Greek Super Leagues’ team ARIS THESSALONIKI FC. The results provided support of the service quality models used.

  • Propositions for R&D Governance Regimes: A Behavioral Perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Kanhaiya Kumar Sinha, Oleksiy Osiyevskyy, Amir Bahman Radnejad
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose: Our paper intends to bring systematic attention to the transaction costs and corresponding governance structures in the corporate R&D contexts. Design/methodology/approach: The current conversation on the governance of R&D has addressed topics related to investments, resource allocation, knowledge sharing, or managing intellectual property rights. While these are important aspects of innovation cost and benefit, they do not address an equally important issue of transaction cost arising out of human behavior. We adopt a systematic synthesis of 16 qualitative teaching case studies to validate the existence of human behavior-related transaction cost issues in the context of R&D and identify firms’ governance responses to mitigate or eliminate their effect. Findings: Our findings suggest that transaction costs issues can be mitigated by appropriate governance models ranging from centralized R&D to open innovation. While structure mitigates the transaction cost some ex-ante and ex-post controls may also be required. Practical implications: For management practice, the insights of our study provide evidence-based advice for R&D managers regarding the practical, effective ways of limiting and controlling the transaction costs associated with R&D activity. Originality/value: This paper uses teaching-case studies to analyze a variety of transaction cost dilemmas in the R&D context and brings in a new perspective to R&D governance.

  • “A Large Playground”: Examining the Current State and Implications of
           Conversational Agent Adoption in Organizations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Theo Araujo, Ward van Zoonen, Claartje ter Hoeven
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      This study explores the short- and long-term expectations about adoption of conversational agents in the organizational frontline. Drawing from in-depth interviews with managers and developers in organizations that have implemented these agents, it sheds light on how the deployment of and collaboration with technology-based autonomous agents influences service activities, and expectations of changes in organizational processes. The interviews revealed that implementations are done on a rather iterative and experimental basis, often balancing the current limits of technology while aiming at improved efficiency, augmenting the work of frontline employees, and meeting the ever-growing demands from consumers.

  • Modeling Consumer’s Switching Intentions Regarding 5G Technology in
           China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Tang Zhongjun, Sayed Kifayat Shah, Mohammad Ahmad, Sohaib Mustafa
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      Switching from current technology to disruptive technology entails advantages, sacrifices, and a variety of other considerations that are not encountered in the case of 5G technology. Therefore, this paper investigates consumers’ intention to shift to 5G in the light of disruptive technology innovation. An extended value-based adoption model (VAM) was used to examine the user’s switching intentions (SIs) from 4G (Existing) technology to 5G (Disruptive) technology. The proposed model was examined on data set from 361 Chinese users using the partial least squares-based structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) technique. The outcomes illustrate the significant correlation between perceived switching benefits (PSBs) and perceived switching sacrifices (PSSs) on perceived sustainability values (SVs), which further impacts users’ SIs. Furthermore, the findings show that users perceived agility (PA) and absorptive capability (AC) moderates and encourages SIs. These findings have important implications for theory and practice. The outcomes of this research will be helpful to telecoms firms in developing consumer retention strategies. Some limitations and future research directions are also explored for scholars.

  • The Digital Platform Experience of a Leading Country in Wine Tourism: From
           COVID-19 to the New Era

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Alfonso Marino, Paolo Pariso
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      The paper’s goals are to comprehend strategies for tourism destinations after the coronavirus. The research question (RQ) is if the digital platform experience of a leading country in wine tourism can help to overcome COVID-19 and to turn the sector. The general topics related to destinations, specifically Italian wine tourism destinations, have been elaborated on in the introduction. Starting with a literature review relating to the destination tourism crisis in the tourism sector, the paper highlights the potential and basic lessons for coping with the current crisis. The method, which is connected to a wine tourism destination in Italy, emphasizes both qualitative and quantitative approaches. The results demonstrate the best practices as well as the bottlenecks. The discussions would result in the creation of strategic alternatives specific to the sector and its destinations. The study limits, considering bottlenecks that might arise in the future. The findings emphasize that the sector requires substantial funding from information and communication technology (ICT) to build smart destinations.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Adilson Carlos Yoshikuni, Edimilson Costa Lucas
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      The study investigates how the alignment at the processing levels between information systems (IS) strategy, through strategy-as-practice approach, and innovation influences corporate performance (CP) under environmental uncertainty from 856 Brazilian firms by PLS-SEM. The results indicated that all approaches of alignment between IS strategy and innovation have strong influences on CP. The alignment with ambidextrous innovation had a 62% higher contribution on CP than alignment between exploitative innovations. Additionally, exploitative innovations had positive effects on CP under high hostility environments; and explorative and ambidextrous innovations had positive large and strong effects on CP under high dynamic environments.

      Authors: Mohd Shazni Suhairy, Norliza Mohamed, Norulhusna Ahmad, Hazilah Mad Kaidi, Rudzidatul Akmam Dziyauddin, Suriani Mohd Sam
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      The study of the correlation between Emotional Intelligence (EI) and work performance is crucial for the organisation. Some of the organisations do not consider EI skills as the work performed. This study investigates the correlation between EI and the work performance of a telecommunication research company in Malaysia. There are 66 participants involved in this study: senior researchers and researchers. A set of questionnaires was distributed to assess their employees’ background, EI, and work performance. As a predictor of research employees’ work performance and EI, the results show that EI had a significant positive relationship with work performance. The findings also show that employees with high EI experience a greater level of task performance. Moreover, the authors also present the relationship of EI with work performance over employees’ background such as gender, marital status, age and work experience. It was found that married employees have a higher correlation than single employees. The study recommends that organisations introduce EI development programs for existing staff to improve their performance at work.

  • The Mediating Role of the IS/IT Auditor for Quality Assurance in the
           Selection of Accounting Software Packages for SMEs in Developing Economies
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Maurice Aduamoah, Sampson Anomah, Boadu Ayeboafo
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      This research designed and tested a model for the selection adoption, customization, and implementation of the best accounting software among the lot that has flooded the software market recently in developing countries. The model assessed the mediating role of the Information Systems (IS) Auditor to mitigate the risks of selecting the wrong packaged software to the barest minimum in developing countries. The researchers analyzed the association that exists between eight variables — Basic Functionality (BF), General Determinants (GD), Package Features (PF), Customization Capability (CC), Financial Reporting Capabilities (FRC) and the IS Auditor (IS/IT Auditor. The study was cross-sectional which purposively sampled professional experts from selected SMEs across Ghana to evaluate the eight variables in the model. 260 experts participated in the assessment. The Delphi Technique was used to reach a consensus on the applicability of the variables in the model. The variable measurement items in the model were subjected to three rounds of scrutiny as required by the Delphi Technique. Multiple regression analysis was also computed in Smart PLS 3 to determine the correlation among the variables in making an appropriate CASP selection decision. The internal consistency and reliability of the dataset were estimated using Statistical Package for Social Sciences. The results point to a positive association between all the variables assessed. The values for BF, GM, PF, CC, FRC and IS/IT Auditor, were 0.509, 0.621, 0.511, 0.632, 0.507 0.454. 0.596 and 0.590, respectively. This is substantiated by the average Kendall’s [math] of 0.17. Chi-square ([math] values ranging between 134.55 and 497.28 for all the three rounds of evaluation and intra-class correlation values ranging from 0.56 to 0.95 affirmed that consensus was achieved. It means that none of these variables could be included in the CASPs decision without the IS/IT Auditor mediating to check its strength in appropriate CASPs selection. Cronbach’s [math] values ranging between 0.719 and 0.924 were computed to determine the internal consistency and reliability of the datasets. The average variance extracted (AVE) for each variable was higher than 0.5 which implies that the convergent validity of the construct is still adequate. The triangulations of these variables using different statistical values have proven the robustness and resilience with which IS/IT Auditor could assist in selecting the best CASPs package with lesser risks of implementation failures in developing economies. The model is expected to help SMEs in developing countries select the best CASPs packages among the lots for successful implementation. It is expected that it will serve as a wake-up call for policymakers to adopt a roadmap to enable SMEs to make the best CASPs buying decision. It is also envisaged that academic institutions will also fill the software adoption illiteracy gap by training more graduates in hands-on computerized accounting to increase selection and implementation awareness.

      Authors: Sarah Philipson
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      This conceptual paper traces the history of production from simple offerings, with the logic of a product structure to a virtual structure, then how components are outsourced in a supply chain. In Wintelism, individual functions, within a product architecture and specified interfaces, are outsourced. Focal firms view the value chain as an ecosystem to optimize value. Destructive innovation restruct and destruct ecosystems that are outperformed by ecosystems providing new offerings. Fundamental destructive innovations disrupt the very way production is made, the mode of production, replacing it by another. This paper raises the question if we are close to such a fundamental disruption.

      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      Increasingly, the development of today’s “smart” products requires the integration of both software and hardware in embedded systems. To develop these, hardware firms typically enlist the expertise of software development firms to offer integrated solutions. While hardware firms often work according to a plan-driven approach, software development firms draw on Agile development methods. Interestingly, empirically little is known about the implications and consequences of working according to contrasting development methods in a collaborative project. In response to this research gap, we conducted a process study of a collaborative development project involving a software firm and a hardware firm, within which the two firms worked according to contrasting development methods. We found that the software firm was gradually compelled to forgo its Agile method, creating a role conflict in terms of its way of working. As such, our results contribute to the literature on Agile–Stage-Gate hybrids by demonstrating how, in collaborative embedded systems development, hybridization of development methods may cause projects to fail. Our main practical implication entails the introduction of the “sequential Agile approach.”

  • Technology Innovation and Digital Ecosystems: Case Study Analysis and
           Proposal of a Lifecycle Model

      Authors: Arthur Taylor
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      Digital ecosystems are a logical variant of the business ecosystem, defined as a group of businesses which cooperate for mutual advantage. While there has been much business strategy research concerning the economic innovations created by a functioning digital ecosystem, research which specifically analyzes the technology innovations both preceding and during the life of the digital ecosystem is lacking. Likewise, the lifecycle process which involves the creation, sustainability, and gradual dissolution of the ecosystem is treated as a nebulous activity with scarce mention in existing literature. Notably, no formal model of a digital ecosystem lifecycle has been proposed. A clear delineation of a digital ecosystem lifecycle would provide a framework for examination of the sources and types of innovations which lead to the formation of a digital ecosystem and thus provide the basis for further research in this area which would inform the process of developing and sustaining digital ecosystems. In order to discern the lifecycle of a digital ecosystem, this paper uses a case study approach to examine the history of several prominent digital ecosystems in the time period between 1981 and 2012: the IBM PC, the French Minitel, and the Apple and Android smartphones. The synthesis and analysis of the historical data contained in the case studies is then organized into a proposed digital ecosystem lifecycle model, a framework for further research. Additionally, observational analysis of the case studies provides insights concerning the sources of the technologies used to create the digital ecosystems and ability of those technologies to sustain the ecosystem.

      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      This paper aims to identify the different idea management system (IMS) types impact on innovation capacity and to support companies in the selection of the most appropriate IMS approach. The main findings of the research indicate the following: First, the application of active IMS stimulates innovation culture more than the application of passive IMS. Second, the application of active IMS improves innovation potential more than the application of passive IMS. Third, the application of the internal IMS type provides higher innovation potential than the application of the external IMS type. Lastly, there is evidence that the application of active IMS accelerates innovation at a higher pace than the application of passive IMS.

      Authors: Arava Sandford, Camille Jean, Fabrice Mantelet, Adrien Broué, Marc Le Coq
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      Today’s industrial context leads companies to use collaboration and partnerships to tackle global issues and create value. For diversified business groups, it represents a good opportunity to make the most of their internal competencies by creating new synergies between their subsidiaries to foster innovation. However, building successful collaborative projects remains a complex process. Thus, an action research approach was used through a case study in a French diversified business group to have in-depth and intrinsic observations in the complex dynamics of collaboration and innovation management. This paper presents a method to create cross-subsidiary collaboration structures on innovative and strategic topics, with theoretical and practical recommendations.

      Authors: Fatemeh Gheitarani, Ruben Guevara, Khaled Nawaser, Asghar Afshar Jahanshahi
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      Nowadays, technological innovation capabilities support competitive advantage, and the survival and development of modern organizations accordingly depend on the knowledge and applications of such innovations. Nevertheless, the link between various aspects of the dynamic technological capability of many organizations is not still clear. Meanwhile, the new trend of some research in the field of dynamic capabilities refers to its technological foundations, as a platform for strengthening and creating a competitive technological advantage in a scattered manner. In this regard, this paper systematically reviews the previous research on technological basis of dynamic capabilities using the systematic review approach, examining articles published during 2000–2021 in which the technological foundations of dynamic capabilities in terms of sensing, seizing, and deformation (i.e. cognitive, psychological and organizational) have been extracted. A framework for future research has also been presented. The recommended framework can partially bridge the gap in the literature on the technological foundations of dynamic capabilities in future studies and help the managers to identify the technological road map for gaining competitive technological advantages.

      Authors: Annika Reischl, Sabrina Weber, Stephan Fischer, Claus Lang-Koetz
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      In innovation management (IM), two perspectives typically come together, characterized with the term ambidexterity: a clear orientation towards the best possible use of resources (exploitation) and, at the same time, completely new ideas and novel approaches (exploration). We consider contextual ambidexterity suitable to address this dilemma in small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Based on findings from five German SMEs, we argue that training and using ‘conventional’ IM for exploitation and ‘agile’ IM for exploration could be most feasible. We develop a generic conceptual model with high practical relevance for SMEs and their innovation projects.

      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      We aim to establish the relationship between the stakeholders who are part of the Open-Access Ecosystem (OAE). The study was developed from an ecosystem approach, analyzing the actors and their relationships. As a result, we proposed a simplified view of the main components of an OAE and the relationships between them, which could be useful for understanding the roles of the different stakeholders and the implications that current and new policies and mandates could have for them.

      Authors: Lennart Ante, Ingo Fiedler, Marc von Meduna, Fred Steinmetz
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      Cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, are a highly volatile asset class where very high returns are offset by large losses. This study examines the financial success of individual investments in cryptocurrencies and analyzes whether it relates to similar explanatory factors as for investments in other asset classes. For this purpose, a nationally representative survey data set of 3,864 German citizens is used, of which 354 (9.2%) reported owning cryptocurrencies in March 2019. We analyze the subpopulation of 225 cryptocurrency owners who classify as investors. 56% of them experienced positive returns, while 29% had negative results. The remaining respondents broke even. The average investment was €1,773 in a portfolio of two cryptocurrencies. At the time of the survey, the average portfolio value had risen to €7094 — an average gain of 300%. While nearly half of the investors (44%) outperformed Bitcoin market returns, not a single one of the early investors (2009–2012) did. We find that net income, the degree of cryptocurrency knowledge and the degree of ideological motivation for owning cryptocurrency have positive effects on returns. This first scientific analysis of individual investment in cryptocurrencies provides a basis for future research and for regulatory decision-making.

           Science Projects: An Interpretive Review

      Authors: Rocco Palumbo, Mohammad Fakhar Manesh, Maddalena Sorrentino
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      Citizen science, i.e. citizens’ involvement in research activities, is achieving an increasing relevance across disparate scientific domains. However, literature is not consistent in arguing citizen science’s attributes and implications when large-scale projects are concerned. The paper systematizes extant scientific knowledge in this field and identifies avenues for further developments through a bibliometric analysis and an interpretive review. Various approaches to citizen science are implemented to engage citizens in scientific research. They can be located in a continuum composed of two extremes: a contributory approach, which serves research institutions’ needs, and an open science approach, which focuses on citizens’ active participation in knowledge co-creation. Although contributory citizen science paves the way for participatory science, it falls short in empowering citizens, which is central in the open science approach. Interventions aimed at enabling citizens to have an active role in co-creating knowledge in a perspective of science democratization are key to overcoming the understanding of citizen science as a low-cost model of scientific research and to boost the transition towards an open science approach.

      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      To build high quality datasets and unlock the value of unstructured data, a systematic approach for data capture is necessary. Cognitive automation (CA), that is, automation of processes with artificial intelligence (AI), enables the information extraction from unstructured data to provide relevant insights and further processing with AI. This study provides an overview of this new technology and shows how it can be used to transform existing business models. Our case studies in the insurance auditing, healthcare, and banking industries show the potential managerial impact of CA, which prepares these legacy industries for their digital future’s challenges and opportunities. We present the novel data extraction pipeline for textual and visual data and demonstrate its efficiency in extracting information from the company’s unstructured data. We show its performance in quality, cost, and time compared with current industry standards and provide management insights for business applications using CA.

      Authors: Daniela M. Santos, Sara M. Gonçalves, Manuel Laranja
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      Two promising streams of research in innovation involve the innovation stemming from the interaction of multiple actors (i.e. innovation networks) and innovation modes [the modes focused on science, technology, and innovation (STI) and learning by doing, using, and interacting (DUI)]. However, scholars have not exerted much effort in cross-referencing these two literature streams. Following a protocol to conduct a systematic review of the literature, through Scimago journals ranking (Q1 and Q2 classification) available at the Web of Science and B-On databases, this study considered 44 articles for eligibility. Moreover, it systematically considers the key features of innovation emerging from DUI networks versus STI networks. Finally, it contributes to future innovation research by comprehensively reviewing the drivers, processes, and outcomes of the STI and DUI innovation emerging from networks.

      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      This study empirically analyzes effective conditions for cross-border “learning by hiring” in the electronics industry. Many previous studies have indicated that the mobility of engineers serves as a conduit for knowledge diffusion and that knowledge is more likely transferred when the geographical distance is short, that is, when the conduit is short. However, the relationship between conduit thickness and density and the knowledge spillover effect has only rarely discussed. The findings of this study suggest that it is more effective to hire multiple people simultaneously for learning by hiring from companies in other countries.

      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      This paper aims to identify global digital trends across industries and to map emerging business areas by co-word analysis. As the industrial landscape has become complex and dynamic due to the rapid pace of technological changes and digital transformation, identifying industrial trends can be critical for strategic planning and investment policy at the firm and regional level. For this purpose, the paper examines industry and technology profiles of top startups across four industries (i.e. education, finance, healthcare, manufacturing) using CrunchBase metadata for the period 2016–2018 and studies in which subsector early-stage firms bring digital technologies on a global level. In particular, we apply word co-occurrence analysis to reveal which subindustry and digital technology keywords/keyphrases appear together in startup company classification. We also use network analysis to visualize industry structure and to identify digitalization trends across sectors. The results obtained from the analysis show that gamification and personalization are emerging trends in the education sector. In the finance industry, digital technologies penetrate in a wide set of services such as financial transactions, payments, insurance, venture capital, stock exchange, asset and risk management. Moreover, the data analyses indicate that health diagnostics and elderly care areas are at the forefront of the healthcare industry digitalization. In the manufacturing sector, startup companies focus on automating industrial processes and creating smart interconnected manufacturing. Finally, we discuss the implications of the study for strategic planning and management.

      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      Digital printing technology (DPT) represents a core innovation that is currently revolutionizing the global decorated apparel market by automating the printing process, facilitating customization, and reducing energy costs and production lead time. However, the fundamental understanding of the emerging DPT market remains unexplored due to its novelty. This study aims to identify DPT diffusion patterns over the past decade in the U.S. market and establish a predictive user profile employing social media-based analytics along with data mining and traditional statistical modeling. A proxy variable is used to measure likely adoption which reflects an S-shaped diffusion curve consistent with Diffusion of Innovations Theory. Additionally, the outcome profile suggests that likely DPT adopters reside in locations that reflect higher levels of education (bachelor’s degrees or higher), relatively young populations (i.e. between 19–34 years of age), proportionately higher incomes generated from art and design occupations, but with lower household annual incomes.

      Authors: Hilda Bø Lyng, Eric Christian Brun
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      The objective of this research is to explore the nature and role of analogies as objects for knowledge transfer in cross-industry collaborations. A case study of an organization seeking cross-industry innovation (CII) across two industry sectors was conducted, and the empirical data were analyzed qualitatively. We found that analogies used as knowledge mediation objects could be classified as explanatory or inventive, each expressed as linguistic or visual representations. Explanatory analogical objects help build prior knowledge of a foreign industry domain, thus easing later use of inventive analogical objects to identify how knowledge from one industry can be applied in another industry for innovation purposes. In these roles, the analogies serve as boundary objects. Both explanatory and inventive analogies can also serve as epistemic objects, motivating for further collaborative engagement. Visual representations of analogies help bridge the abstract with the concrete, thereby easing the process of creating analogies. They also enable nonverbal communication, thus helping bypass language barriers between knowledge domains. The reported research expands current research literature on knowledge mediation objects to the context of CII and provides added detailed understanding of the use of analogies in CII.

           Model

      Authors: Ferry Koster
      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      This study aims at explaining innovation performance of organizations as a combination of resources and capabilities. This study starts with asking the question how the relationship between firm-specific knowledge and innovation performance can be explained. To answer this question, insights from the resource-based view (RBV) and the dynamic capabilities approach (DCA) are combined. This leads to a set of hypotheses. The first hypothesis states that knowledge-specificity and innovation performance are positively related. The second hypothesis states that organizational learning practices mediate the relationship between knowledge-specificity and innovation performance. Then, two contrasting hypotheses are formulated stating that the relationship between knowledge-specificity and organizational learning practices of organizations is strengthened or weakened by the level of autonomy. Together these hypotheses lead to a mediated-moderation model of knowledge-specificity and innovation performance. The model is tested using a mediated-moderation analysis on a sample of 673 private organizations in the Netherlands. The analyses show that there is a positive relationship between knowledge-specificity and innovation performance and that this relationship is mediated by the extent to which organizations apply learning practices. Hypotheses 1 and 2 are thus supported. Furthermore, the level of autonomy weakens the relationship between knowledge-specificity and organizational learning practices. This study’s main contribution lies in combining theoretical insights from the RBV and the DCA, applying them to the field of knowledge management, and testing them empirically. The analyses lead to two insights for organizations interested in increasing their innovation performance. First, investing in learning capabilities enhances innovation performance. Second, organizations based on general knowledge can grant work autonomy to employees to enhance their ability to learn.

      This research provides empirical insights to reveal how value convergence occurs within Uber’s sharing economy. Uber’s business model is built on a digital platform that links private vehicle owners and their under-utilized assets to be economic revenue generating units for on-demand transport requests from potential clients. By analyzing adoption values for drivers and users of Uber, we identify antecedent operational and behavioral values for Uber adoption. We add to extant Industry 4.0 research and show value convergence emanating from economic and convenience motives. On the basis of our findings, we develop propositions for value convergence leveraging on cyber-physical systems embedded in Industry 4.0, and its application for theory and practice within the broader domains of the sharing economy.

      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      In this paper, we explore preparedness strategies for the initial response to crisis-driven innovation, in the context of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Using insights from semi-structured interviews with public health strategists, we apply analytic induction to investigate preparedness to innovate, and the main forms of crisis-driven innovation applied in the initial COVID-19 response. We thematically analyze measures of preparedness for the initial COVID-19 response and propose a framing aimed at boosting readiness for crisis-driven innovation. Our study finds themes on COVID-19 preparedness strategies involving combat-inspired public policies from assessed security, cyclic-oriented public projections of actionable safeguards, and continuity-driven public provisions for anticipated situations. The study also captures themes on crisis response as crisis-driven innovation in relation to digitalized, integrated, and tailored public services, initiatives, and systems. Our paper concludes with discussions on the implications of innovation intelligence for crisis preparedness, “ripple-inspired inside-out” view of crisis-driven innovation, “response as innovation” framings, and suggestions for further studies.

      Abstract: International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this paper is to study the effect of performance-based rewards on radical innovation. In doing so, it explores the role of knowledge acquisition and innovative work behavior (IWB) as possible mechanisms that underlie the relationship between performance-based rewards and radical innovation. The subsequent effect of IWB on promoting radical innovation is explored. The study employs data from 235 unit managers in manufacturing and technology firms in Jordan. Structural equation modeling was used to test for reliability, validity, and the hypothesized relationships. The results indicate that performance-based rewards positively affect knowledge acquisition. In addition, knowledge acquisition mediates the link between performance-based rewards and IWB. IWB is also significant and positive in promoting radical innovation. This paper is one of the first to examine how radical innovation can be promoted through IWB. It offers insights into and contributions to the literature on the role of performance-based rewards in driving radical innovation through the mediating effect of knowledge acquisition and the subsequent impact of IWB on radical innovation.
