  • Creating supply chain resilience during and post-COVID-19 outbreak: the
           organizational ambidexterity perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study aims to investigate the significance of organizational ambidexterity (OA) in creating supply chain resilience (SCRES) during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The methodological triangulation is applied in this study. A literature review, semi-structured online interviews and insights from open webinars serve as the sources of data. A framework, based on three pillars: validation, positioning and evaluation of business practices, is used for data analysis. The dependencies between OA activities and SCRES strategies are presented. The authors discuss their evolution during and in the post-pandemic period and outline the SCM trends in a strategic perspective. This paper investigates a pathway for closing the gap between OA theory and industry practice to create SCRES during and post-COVID-19 outbreak. This article starts the discussion on creating SCRES through OA. Future quantitative and qualitative research should explore the applicability of OA to enhance SCRES in a dynamic environment. Understanding the critical connection between exploitation and exploration practices and how OA influences SCRES provides valuable insight into the subject to supply chain managers supporting them in pursuing their roles successfully in the times of crisis. This study is focused on two concepts, OA and SCRES, of critical importance for how practitioners manage supply chains in the times of crisis. The resilience of supply chains to crises is crucial for the well-being of societies.

  • Understanding influence of supply chain relationships in retail channels
           on risk management

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of the study lies in explaining and measuring Supply Chain relationships and their effect on supply chain resilience and supply chain performance in retail/service organizations. The study is also empirically explaining relationships while employing commitment–trust theory. The empirical research uses 144 responses, which were collected through the use of survey methods from retail firms. The questionnaire was adapted from various published sources. Purposive sampling was used as the technique for data collection. Hypotheses were analyzed by using structural equation modeling. The findings indicate that supply chain relationships significantly influence supply chain performance. SC agility was found as the significant enabler for Resilience. Cooperation plays a vital role in enhancing agility, resilience, and SC performance. Resilience shows the insignificant impact on the performance of supply chain and integration share insignificant effect on cooperation. Retail supply chain managers need to create a transparent atmosphere where all the supply chain partners can exchange formal and informal messages and provide opportunities through such platforms that enable them to share risk management-related expertise and strengthen their productive relationships. Organizations should promote relationships for the long-lasting continuity of their operations. The research is unique for its findings and its contribution toward the supply chain resilience as well as risk management domain and also for contributing in the retail sector as it is one of the first empirical studies to evaluate the relational exchanges and risk management from the perspective of retailers in a developing nation. The study also tries to meet meaningful gaps in existent literature.

  • Comparing attribute-based and memory-based preferential choice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Common theories of multiattribute preferential choice predict that people choose options that have on average better attribute values than alternative options. However, following an alternative memory-based view on preferences people might sometimes prefer options that are more similar to memorized options that were experienced positively in the past. In two incentivized preferential choice experiments (N = 32, N = 28), we empirically compare these theoretical accounts, finding support for the memory-based value theory. Computational modeling using predictive model comparison showed that only a few participants could be described by a model that uses sums of subjectively weighted attribute values when experience was available. Most participants’ choices resembled the predictions of the memory-based model, according to which preferences are based on the similarity between novel and old memorized options. Further, people whose experience consisted of direct sensory exposure, like tasting a portion of food, were also those with higher likelihoods of a memory-based process, compared to people whose exposure was indirect. These results highlight the central role of memory and experience in preferential choices and add to the growing evidence for memory and similarity-based processes in the domain of human preferences.

  • TTS-based appointments and university research productivity: a case of
           Pakistan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The tenure track system (TTS) program was launched by the Higher Education Commission to improve research quality and international visibility of research conducted by Pakistani higher educational institutes. The prime aim of this study is to examine the impacts of TTS policy on university-level research productivity by utilizing the unbalanced panel data of Pakistani universities covering the period of 2002–2017. The treatment variable is the ratio of TTS faculty to the total faculty, while outcome variables include the H-index, number of research papers published, and citations. Panel data analysis indicates that the TTS faculty have a statistically significant and positive impact on all kinds of research productivity (i.e. h-index, number of papers published, and number of citations) and it does not matter which type of econometrical panel data model is used. Additionally, university age and enrolled Ph.D. scholars also play key roles in boosting university-level research productivity. Overall results propose some suitable policy implications in the area of academic research productivity in developing economies.

  • Role of market structure in firm-level innovation: an extended CDM model
           for a developing economy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Despite the substantial number of empirical and theoretical studies, the relationship between competition and innovation remains unclear. This paper shed lights on this multifaceted relationship from a new angle based on a detailed firm-level dataset of private manufacturing Pakistani firms, a survey first time conducted by the World Bank for the Pakistan economy. We used a refined version of the CDM model to examine the impacts of industry-level competition on firm-level innovation and productivity relationship. Our econometric estimates show that a firm belonging to the oligopolistic industry is more likely to take the decision of engaging in innovational activities, however, allocates fewer funds to R&D as compared to a competitive firm. The elasticity of product and process innovation output in terms of R&D intensity is higher in the oligopolistic industry. Correspondingly, product innovation outcome has a stronger influence on firm productivity in the case of a competitive sector. The findings have practical implications for policymakers in the area of market structure and firm-level innovation.

           holiday couples

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The decisions of where and how people want to spend their leisure time have a direct effect on the tourism industry, their well-being, and their happiness. Stemming from the social comparison theory, the present study investigates the impact of couple holiday decision tactics on their emotional well-being and the satisfaction and the mediating effect of emotional well-being on the relationship between holiday decision tactics and couple satisfaction. The fundamental framework was examined using 513 questionnaires distributed online, to married couples in Turkey. The results of path analysis were obtained using SPSS and AMOS software. Results showed those decision tactics significantly and positively affect emotional well-being and couple satisfaction. Furthermore, the study confirmed that emotional well-being mediates the relationship between holiday decision tactics and couple satisfaction. This study contributes to the discussion on the effect of both partners' holiday decision tactics on their emotional well-being and their satisfaction.

  • Revisiting the antecedent of electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM) during
           COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The main feature of the Internet and e-commerce is electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM) through online reviews. As Internet users and their consumption of eWOM for product information overgrow in India, it is vital to examine the elements that influence the effectiveness of eWOM communication during COVID-19 pandemics. A systematic literature review has been conducted to assess the factors influencing eWOM in the online retailing context. The literature has been segregated into WOM, eWOM, the eWOM source credibility, eWOM message characteristics, eWOM platform, and outcome of eWOM adoption. The organised review provided a eWOM communication model and proposed an appropriate hypothesis to be tested. The finding concludes the significant relationship of eWOM determinants in building purchase intention, brand image, and attitude during COVID-19 pandemics. Previously conducted research examined the effect of source and message credibility; however, source homophily and website credibility in eWOM communication are rarely taken into account along with these constructs. This study will address more vigorous eWOM phenomena and empirical findings in the COVID-19 period. The study’s findings will help practitioners manage the power of eWOM communication for all stakeholders.

  • Drivers’ estimation of the luxury companies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract One of the important financial issues for the public companies is how to achieve the most optimal way to maximize firm value and shareholder wealth in a competitive environment. Another problem is connected with the search for an efficient method of the evaluation of social media mood impact on companies’ values as it creates their image and reputation. The paper aims to investigate the impact of financial indicators and news related to enterprise on luxury companies’ performance. Luxury industry is chosen as an object of the study as it has a range of specifics, which can cause the changes in the variables’ effects. To accomplish the purpose of the research, the authors design fixed-effects regression models on a sample of 45 European, Asian and American luxury companies for the period 2010–2019 and conduct sentiment, correlation and Granger-causality analyses using the extracted Twitter data. The results show that net margin, return on investments, total revenue, earnings per share, current ratio and asset turnover have a significant positive effect on the luxury companies’ market capitalization, while total debt percentage of total equity influences negatively and significantly. The study also finds that participation in M&A and luxury companies’ location have a significant impact on their market capitalization. Various impacts within the specifics of luxury sectors are also established for the sample examined in this research. Furthermore, strong relationships between news background and companies’ performance are discovered.

  • The effect of COVID fatigue on mental health in the public sector
           organizations: exploring compassion as a mediator

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the impact of COVID fatigue on mental health amidst the pandemic. In particular, it tries to understand the mediating role of compassion in the equation between COVID fatigue, corona anxiety, social support, and mental health. Systematic review was conducted to understand the interrelationship among chosen variables. Hierarchical regression was used as a tool of empirical evidence for the derived interrelationships. The results from a survey of 307 white-collar employees from public sector organizations in India confirmed the mediating role of compassion on mental health. The results state that a unit change in the dependent variables of COVID fatigue, corona anxiety, and social support can have an impact of 9.7% on the mental health quotient. It was also found out that introducing a unit of compassion in the equation will mediate the impact to 3.7%. In this study, 61.1% of participants were categorized as psychologically fatigued and 38.9% as psychologically non-fatigued. Implications for the theory and practice of compassion are discussed, and future research directions offered.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Showrooming is a phenomenon when a customer views a product at a physical store, but buys it online from the same store’s website or from a competitor’s website. In this paper, we develop economic models of price competition between a traditional retailer and an online retailer under customer showrooming behaviour. Our results indicate that showrooming hurts the traditional retailer and benefits the online retailer in terms of sales volumes and profits. The combined offline and online market expands under showrooming. We consider two strategies—effort/investment made and online entry by the traditional retailer—to counter showrooming. Either strategy makes the traditional retailer better off, and the online retailer worse off, in terms of sales volumes and profits; also, the overall market, including offline and online sales, contracts. Moreover, when the traditional retailer makes an online entry, although its offline sales decrease, its total offline and online sales increase; also, although the overall market contracts, total online sales and the online price increase. We consider two scenarios of simultaneous and sequential moves made by the retailers to set their prices. We observe that both the retailers benefit under sequential moves than in the simultaneous move; however, the overall market demand is lower in sequential moves than in the simultaneous move. We have also conducted sensitivity analyses to check for robustness of the results. We conclude the paper by highlighting the managerial implications of this research and providing possible directions for future research.

      Abstract: Abstract In Indian culture, household saving decisions have been predominantly male-oriented, which has been changing expeditiously, and in that backdrop, the study has attempted to assess the spousal roles in life insurance demands. A cross-sectional study design has been adopted, and with a self-designed interview schedule by executing a survey, it has gathered data from 120 participants applying the random sampling technique. Significant statistical results have affirmed the demographic and spousal roles in life insurance demands. However, it has also acknowledged limitations, reported policy implications, and set a future research agenda.

  • Identifying and ranking techno-stressors among IT employees due to work
           from home arrangement during Covid-19 pandemic

      Abstract: Abstract Due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 across the globe, the extensive use of information technology has become the “new normal” in the present scenario of work from home arrangement. While many claim this policy to be a “win–win” strategy for both the employers and the employees, the Covid-19 pandemic has given the industries a valuable opportunity to assess the advantages and challenges of this strategy from a relatively long-term perspective. The remote work–psychological stress relationship is complex, and the current pandemic characterized by uncertainties and crisis atmosphere is making the situation worse. Amid constant changing scenario and prevailing decision fatigue, the objective of this research is twofolded. First, it aims to identify the techno-stressors impacting IT Professionals in the work from home mode. For this purpose, primary data were collected from 334 IT sector full-time employees and analysed using exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory factor analysis. Second, derive weight/rank of each techno-stressor using analytical hierarchy process to quantify the relative priority of the techno-stressors. This method includes both the qualitative and quantitative aspects of the complex problem. Findings revealed “fear of job loss due to new ICT” due to highest weightage appears to be the most pressing issue while “work beyond office hour” has least weightage. By identifying and prioritizing the type of techno-stressors using the mixed method approach, the present research intends to provide the useful input to decision makers in making wise decisions during Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.

  • The role of data-driven artificial intelligence on COVID-19 disease
           management in public sphere: a review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease with acute intense respiratory syndrome which spread around the world for the very first time impacting the way of life with drastic uncertainty. It rapidly reached almost every nook and corner of the world and the World Health Organization (WHO) has announced COVID-19 as a pandemic. The health care institutions around the globe are looking for viable and real-time technological solutions to handle the virus for evading its spread and circumvent probable demises. Importantly, the artificial intelligence tools and techniques are playing a major role in fighting the effect of virus on the economic jolt by mimicking human intelligence by screening, analyzing, predicting and tracking the existing and likely future patients. Since the first reported case, all the government organizations in the world jumped into action to prevent it and many studies reported the role of AI in taking decisions analyzing big data available in public sphere. Thereby, this review focuses on identifying the significant implication of AI techniques used for the COVID-19 disease management in the public sphere by agglomerating the latest available information. It also discusses the pitfalls and future directions in handling sensitive big data required for advanced neural networks.
