  • State estimation with trusted phasor measuring unit placements of
           distribution system involving renewable energy sources

    • Authors: Thamaraiselvi Arivazhagan, Subramanian Srikrishna, Naveenkumar Kaliyan, Ganesan Sivarajan
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      Among Renewable Energy Sources wind and solar energy are the most prominent and favorable substitutes to meet mankind’s future electricity requirements. Typically, these resources are combined in a distribution network to provide local distribution users. The amalgamation of these upgrades into the distribution network may modify the malfunction and network topologies, which may fail due to their pre-set state. Therefore, an advanced and accurate tracking device must continuously monitor topology changes, which is the Phasor Measuring Unit (PMU). This work proposes a new technique based on the Sea Lion Optimization Algorithm to determine the Optimal PMU Placements and its employment positions, i.e. the power structure is completely perceptible. In addition, the cost of system losses can be calculated with or without wind energy to achieve energy reserves. The energy losses before and after the wind turbine connection is compared to realize energy reserves. This comparison of energy reserves is made using Realistic and Stochastic platforms. Comparison and proposed formulas offered in the IEEE 15, 33, 69, and 85 bus distribution networks were explored to prove their effectiveness. Moreover, the proposed methodology produces more trusted results than those of other methods in the literature.

  • Adoption of cloud computing as innovation in the organization

    • Authors: Lewis Golightly, Victor Chang, Qianwen Ariel Xu, Xianghua Gao, Ben SC Liu
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      Over the years, there has been a heavy reliance on cloud computing as IT has innovated through time. In recent times cloud computing has grown monumentally. Many organizations rely on this technology to perform their business as usual and use it as a backbone of their companies' IT infrastructure. This paper investigates the organizational adaptation for cloud computing technology - reviewing case studies from various institutions and companies worldwide to provide a detailed analysis of innovative techniques with cloud computing. We investigate the features and delivery approaches cloud computing offers and the potential challenges and constraints we face when adopting cloud computing into the business setting. We also explore the cybersecurity elements associated with cloud computing, focusing on intrusion detection and prevention and understanding how that can be applied in the cloud. Finally, we investigate the future research directions for cloud computing and expand this paper into further articles with experiments and results.

  • Modeling the industry perspective of university-industry collaborative
           innovation alliances: Player behavior and stability issues

    • Authors: Yang Song, Ron Berger, Matti Rachamim, Andrew Johnston, Andrea Fronzetti Colladon
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      Many firms find it challenging to develop innovations, evidenced by the ever-mounting number of university-industry research alliances. This study examines the strategic choices of actors who participate in collaborative innovation alliances involving partnerships between industry and universities (U-I) based on a stochastic evolutionary game model. White noise was introduced to reflect uncertainty and the stochastic interferences caused by the differences between actors. Using the Itô stochastic differential equation theory, we analyze stability issues of player behaviors in the evolution of a collaborative innovation alliance. The results illustrate that improvements in innovation efficiency can contribute to U-I collaborative innovation alliances. High knowledge complementarity appears to be unbeneficial to the stability of these alliances, and controlling knowledge spillovers may suppress free-rider problems from both sides of the game. Our study contributes to innovation research by providing a decision-making reference for the design of U-I cooperation.

  • Linking customized logistics service in online retailing with
           E-satisfaction and E-loyalty

    • Authors: Mingyao Hu, Peggy E Chaudhry, Sohail S Chaudhry
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      Online retailers are providing customized logistics service to meet heterogeneous customer demand. However, the value of customized logistics service is not clear. We study conceptually and empirically how customized logistics service influences online customer post-purchase behavior, specifically e-satisfaction and e-loyalty. Primary data on customized logistics service were collected from an online field study involving direct observation. Secondary data on e-satisfaction and e-loyalty were collected from Bizrate.com. We used hierarchical multiple regression analyses and constrained nonlinear regression for empirical analysis. The results indicate that customized logistics service contributes significantly to e-satisfaction and, in turn, to e-loyalty. Furthermore, shipping rates significantly moderate the indirect effect of customized logistics service on e-loyalty through e-satisfaction. This research contributes to the understanding of the nature and consequences of customized logistics service in online retailing. Our findings underscore the effect of customized logistics service on e-satisfaction and e-loyalty, and the critical moderation effects of shipping rate on these relationships. Results from this study hold implications for the way online service operations managers employ logistics service strategy.

  • Prioritize special economic zones establishment through a multi-criteria
           decision-making approach: A case study on the federal states of Somalia

    • Authors: Najib Abdi, Stefania Bait, Asif Hasnain, Serena Marino Lauria, Riccardo Savigliano, Ygor Scarcia, Massimiliano M Schiraldi
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      This paper aims to present the analysis results on the feasibility and assessment of Special Economic Zone (SEZ) implementation across the seven Federal States of Somalia. Specifically, the research leads to defining the most important criteria used to evaluate different locations to establish SEZs, understanding the priorities and perceptions of different groups of stakeholders. Moreover, it allows quantitatively assess States’ conditions to reduce the risk of wasted investment or unsuccessful development. Finally, it ranks alternatives based on the stakeholder perspectives and territorial realities. The analysis is based on a multi-criteria decision-making methodology, specifically on the Analytic Hierarchy Process and Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution. On a national basis, the most relevant criteria, in the view of stakeholders, are the availability of a skilled workforce. The “economic prosperity” and “financial investments and external aid” are the most critical gaps commonly perceived in all the States. The most applicable State to locate a Special Economic Zone is Banadir Regional Administration, which is perceived to be relatively better off concerning Environmental Conditions, Workforce Skills, Finance and External Aid, and Government Policies and Security. Moreover, the discrepancy between Banadir Regional Administration, but also Somaliland, and the other States is alarming, showing that the more advanced States are the ones that have a higher level of security, population, and also more reliable infrastructure. This information is vital for government and policymakers to support less developed countries' economic and social growth.

  • The effective coaching factors in operational managers of Persian gulf
           petrochemical company in motivation of human resources

    • Authors: Hajat Hajizadeh, Foad Makvandi, Ghanbar Amirnejad
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      Coaching encourages individuals to focus on their strengths instead of their weaknesses. The studies show that emphasizing the employees’ strengths can reduce turnover, increase productivity, and improve job satisfaction. This study investigated the effective coaching factors in operational managers of the Persian Gulf Petrochemical Company in motivation of human resources. The present study is practical and descriptive-correlational in terms of objective and data gathering, respectively. Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was performed in SMART PLS to model the collected data. The statistical population included all the 340 operational managers of the Persian Gulf Petrochemical Company. 182 individuals were selected and evaluated from this statistical population. Questionnaires were used for data collection. The researcher-made questionnaire was extracted based on the model prepared in the previous stage using a grounded theory approach. The results showed that communication, organizational strategy and goals, legal requirements, motivation, organizational training, empowerment, teamwork, succession, organizational agility, job satisfaction, organizational structure, human resources management, organizational culture, participatory management, talent management, knowledge management, coaching, managers’ competencies, compensation system, job satisfaction, staff characteristics, organizational characteristics, and learning have significant impacts in motivation of human resources.

  • A novel ensemble approach for heterogeneous data with active learning

    • Authors: Mohamed Salama, Hatem Abdelkader, Amira Abdelwahab
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      At present, millions of internet users are contributing a huge amount of data. This data is extremely heterogeneous, and so, it is hard to analyze and derive information from this data that is considered an indispensable source for decision-makers. Due to this massive growth, the classification of data and analysis has become an important research subject. Extracting information from this data has become a necessity. As a result, it was necessary to process these enormous volumes of data to uncover hidden information and therefore improve data analysis and, in turn, classification accuracy. In this paper, firstly, we focus on developing an ensemble machine-learning model based on active learning which identifies the most effective feature extraction strategy for heterogeneous data analysis, and compare it with traditional machine-learning algorithms. Secondly, we evaluate the proposed model during the experiments; five heterogeneous datasets from various domains were used, such as a Health Care Reform dataset, Sander Frandsen dataset, Financial Phrase Bank dataset, SMS Spam Collection dataset, and Textbook sales dataset. According to the results, the novel approach for data analysis performed better than conventional methods. Finally, the study’s findings confirmed the validity of the suggested technique, meeting the study’s goal of using ensemble methods with active learning to raise the model’s overall accuracy for effectively classifying and analyzing heterogeneous data, reducing the time and money spent training the model, and delivering superior analysis performance as well as insights into other elements of extracting information from heterogeneous data.

  • Predicting crowdfunding economic success in the gulf cooperation council

    • Authors: Marwan M Abdeldayem, Saeed H Aldulaimi
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      This study aims to analyze crowdfunding’s economic success in the Gulf region as the Crowdfunding (CF) experience and practice in this part of the world tend to be unexplored in terms of research. In particular, the study examines whether the adoption of entrepreneurial finance (EF) principles in crowdfunding platforms affects the economic success of funding and entrepreneurs’ ability in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to access financial resources. The study uses an online questionnaire survey on Crowdfunding economic success in the GCC to collect information from the participants. Participants are investors, entrepreneurs, and startups from five Gulf countries (i.e., Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and UAE) in addition to several Crowdfunding platforms commonly used by crowdfunders in this region (such as Indiegogo, Kickstarter, Eureeca, Beehive and GoFundMe) with total members (102964). Signaling theory and principle-agent theory combine to make a theoretical foundation that explains the relationship between funders and fundraisers. The pilot sample consisting of 10 units was used to validate and verify the research instrument of the study. The research sample consists of 1145 respondents (sample size n = 1145) selected randomly from the five Gulf countries included in the study. The findings reveal that CF’s presence positively impacts economic fundraising success and that crowdfunding platforms are an effective financial technology (Fintech) tool for financing entrepreneurs in the GCC. We conclude with recommendations for future EF and CF research. The findings of this study will have implications for improvements in practices of economic and finance. They may be used as a guide towards advancing the management and performance of the crowdfunding platforms in the Gulf region. Presently, a very few number of published research on crowdfunding exist in this region. Moreover, to the best of our knowledge, there is no single study investigating crowdfunding as an alternative financing source in the GCC.

  • The hybrid strategy on the basis of Miles and Snow and Porter’s
           strategies: An overview of the current state-of-the-art of research

    • Authors: Alhamzah Alnoor, Khai Wah Khaw, Hadi Al-Abrrow, Raed Khamis Alharbi
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      The fact pure strategy leads to superior performance was widely criticized. Academics have argued there has been a shift in emphasis from pure strategy to hybrid (integrating a set of strategies). This transformation is constantly increasing. Therefore, from now on, the hybrid strategy based on Miles and Snow and Porter’s strategies is a vital concept to successful performance. Researchers investigated different cases of adoption of Miles and Snow or Porter strategies. Regardless of the prevalence and value of Miles and Snow and Porter’s strategies, they often lead to disappointing performances. The disappointing results of Miles and Snow and Porter’s strategies are due to several firms adopting the hybrid strategy. A holistic view of prior research is needed to understand the importance of a hybrid strategy on performance based on Miles and Snow and Porter. Accordingly, this study provides a comprehensive review of hybrid strategies based on Miles and Snow and Porter’s strategies. The reviewed literature regarding hybrid strategy based on Miles and Snow and Porter’s strategies is categorized and discussed in two directions. Firstly, Miles and Snow’s strategies. Secondly, Porter’s strategies. We analyze the essential characteristics of the emerging field for the hybrid strategy along with the issues, challenges, advantages of a hybrid strategy, theoretical, and practical implications.

  • A core region captioning framework for automatic video understanding in
           story video contents

    • Authors: Hyesun Suh, Jiyeon Kim, Jinsoo So, Jongjin Jung
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      Due to the rapid increase in images and image data, research examining the visual analysis of such unstructured data has recently come to be actively conducted. One of the representative image caption models the DenseCap model extracts various regions in an image and generates region-level captions. However, since the existing DenseCap model does not consider priority for region captions, it is difficult to identify relatively significant region captions that best describe the image. There has also been a lack of research into captioning focusing on the core areas for story content, such as images in movies and dramas. In this study, we propose a new image captioning framework based on DenseCap that aims to promote the understanding of movies in particular. In addition, we design and implement a module for identifying characters so that the character information can be used in caption detection and caption improvement in core areas. We also propose a core area caption detection algorithm that considers the variables affecting the area caption importance. Finally, a performance evaluation is conducted to determine the accuracy of the character identification module, and the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm is demonstrated by visually comparing it with the existing DenseCap model.

  • Direct and indirect influence of project managers’ contingent reward
           leadership and empowering leadership on project success

    • Authors: Muhammad K Ahmad, Abu B Abdulhamid, Sazali A Wahab, Ali N Pervaiz, Muhammad Imtiaz
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      Leadership is considered to be a viable solution to avoid persistent project failures in an increasingly volatile and uncertain competitive business environment; however, practitioners and researchers have yet to reach a consensus on the best leadership style to prevent project failure. Although past studies have examined different leadership models in the project environment, they have overlooked the importance of emerging leadership styles in managing new business realities. This article thus attempts to determine whether two leadership styles, that is, contingent reward and empowering, directly and indirectly achieve project success. Data were collected from 289 project team members in the IT sector and analysed using partial least squares structural equation modelling. The results demonstrate the positive impact of empowering leadership on employee self-leadership, which leads to project success. Further, employee self-leadership positively mediates the link between empowering leadership and project success, while goal clarity moderates the influence of self-leadership on project success. However, contingent reward leadership neither directly nor indirectly (through self-leadership) showed any significant relationship with project success.

  • Revolutionizing elementary disaster prevention education and training via
           augmented reality-enhanced collaborative learning

    • Authors: Su-Ju Lu, Yu-Chiao Lin, Kim Hua Tan, Ying-Chieh Liu
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      In light of a recent spike in natural and man-made disasters, there has been an increase in interest in disaster prevention education and training. The effectiveness of both publicly-funded and voluntarily organized disaster education (DE) has attracted wide attention. More studies are needed to understand the innovative pedagogical practice and the impact of technological advances on disaster learning content development, effectiveness and motivation. This study investigates the application of augmented reality (AR) in DE and training. An AR-enhanced tool named ‘disaster-proof warrior’ was developed and tested to evaluate its enhancement effect on learning under two collaborative learning modes. A series of quasi-experiments involving 85 elementary school subjects was carried out to assess the learning effectiveness and the subjective reaction in learning motivation. The results showed the AR embedded learning tool is effective in engaging and motivating collaborative team knowledge building. This study adds to the existing literature of AR applications in education and training as well as providing a useful reference for future development and improvement of national DE and training.

  • The interplay of open innovation and strategic innovation: Unpacking the
           role of organizational learning ability and absorptive capacity

    • Authors: Saima Mirza, Asif Mahmood, Hassan Waqar
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      We explore the open innovation research model in order to remove barriers in service organizations, where lack of knowledge is the main barrier to innovation. The purpose of this paper is to propose a research model exploring the relationship between open innovation, organizational learning ability, absorptive capacity, and strategic innovation. In this study, we collected data from 330 pharmaceutical companies in Lahore and Karachi (Pakistan). The Structural equation model analysis was used through analysis of moment structures and statistical package for the social sciences to check the relationship between the variables. The results reveal that hypotheses related to innovation have been accepted. The findings of this study are evidence that various types of open innovation have different effects on strategic innovation. The inbound and outbound open innovation directly affects strategic innovation; the mutual effect of exploitative learning ability and explorative learning ability between open innovation and strategic innovation have indirect effects. Similarly, the empirical findings of absorptive capacity also significantly impact open innovation and organizational learning ability. This study contributes to the theory by introducing exploitative and explorative learning abilities as mediators between open innovation and strategic innovation. Moreover, it analyzes how absorptive capacity may enhance learning abilities through the open innovation phenomenon. Practically, this study would help the managers understand and improve organizational productivity and gain competitive advantage by creating, sharing, and utilizing knowledge through internal and external avenues.

  • The challenges confronting the training needs assessment in Saudi Arabian
           higher education

    • Authors: Majed Bin Othayman, John Mulyata, Abdulrahim Meshari, Yaw Debrah
      Abstract: International Journal of Engineering Business Management, Volume 14, Issue , January-December 2022.
      This research examines the problems encountered by the Training Needs Assessment (TNA) system from the perspective of faculty members and Human Resources (HR) managers in emerging public universities in the Saudi Arabian Higher Education sector. It aims to understand how problems with this will affect the success rate of Training and Development (T&D) curriculums. The research comprises an analytical study using a case study method of analysis. Qualitative data collection was carried out using semi-structured interviews with 75 senior managers and faculty members of four selected universities, selected using purposive non-random sampling. The data was analysed using Thematic Analysis (TA). The results highlight the insufficiency of the TNA techniques applied to ascertain training requirements. The primary obstacles to successful TNA were inadequate HR processes, insufficiently experienced HR directors, poor engagement, and favouritism concerning the selection of candidates for T&D. These issues affect the enthusiasm of those in the department. Additionally, resources required for T&D, particularly time and money, are misused, which could influence the growth potential of the universities against the country’s Vision 2030 plan. The findings indicate procedural differences in selecting and approving staff requests for Human Resource Development (HRD) support, managerial discretion in selecting participants for HRD programmes, and selective or restricted access to HRD programmes for foreign-born employees, which raises significant questions about equality policies. This study is unique as a contribution to the literature in exploring the challenges faced by the TNA process in Saudi Arabian Higher Education, therefore broadening understanding in the field as a whole, especially concerning the developing countries and Gulf Cooperation Council of Nations. The study concludes that there is currently unsatisfactory commitment in determining the staff training needs by the HR departments of Saudi Arabian public universities, which damages morale and leads to a lack of faith between HR directors and departmental staff. Finally, this study contributes to the area of policy decision-making by reporting the present situation surrounding the issues related to the application of TNA in T&D.
