      Authors: Ashok Kumar Patel , Anurag Singh , Satyanarayana Parayitam
      Abstract: The study's objective is to examine the consumers' intention to buy counterfeit brand shoes. A conceptual model is developed to test the risk-taking and word-of-mouth (WOM) as a moderator in the relationship between status consumption, brand image, and consumer intention to buy counterfeit shoes. Based on the theory of reasoned action (TRA) and signaling theory (ST), this research was conducted in the Indian National Capital Region. Using a structured instrument, the data was collected from 240 respondents. After checking the psychometric properties of the survey instrument using the Lisrel package of structural equation modeling, Hayes's PROCESS macros were used for testing the hypotheses. The findings from the study indicate that (1) status consumption and brand image are positively associated with purchase intention of counterfeit brand shoes, and (2) risk-taking moderates the relationship between (1) status consumption and purchase intention, and (2) brand image and purchase intension, (3) significant three-way interaction between WOM, risk-taking and status consumption on purchase intention, and (4) significant three-way interaction between brand image, WOM, and risk-taking on purchase intention of counterfeit brand shoes. As with any survey research, this study has common method variance as a potential problem. However, through the latent variable method and Harman's single-factor analysis, the common method variance was checked. The study has several implications for managers, e-marketers, and consumers. The study has several implications for marketers selling counterfeit products and managers intending to protect their branded products. A conceptual model showing two-way and three-way interactions between status consumption, risk-taking, and WOM influencing the consumer purchase intention of counterfeit products was discussed. This is the first of its kind in India to explore such relationships.

      Authors: Chaitanya Arun Sathe , Chetan Panse
      Abstract: The objective of the study is to analyze the impact of the adoption of the Agile Mindset on the productivity of Agile software development teams in IT enterprises during COVID-19. A web-based survey is performed with voluntary participants working with the Agile software development professionals with a specific focus on IT enterprises around Pune, India. For this the initial exploratory literature review was performed, to explore the team's behaviors and their response to the crises like the Covid-19 pandemic. Data is collected from the targeted population using the random sampling method. A questionnaire is designed with the help of a five-point Likert scale. All the respondents were analyzed based on their behaviors shown and how adopting to Agile mindset has impacted their productivity during the pandemic. Collected data would be then analyzed using the Smart PLS-SEM methodology. Findings of the study show that Agile software development teams adopting to Agile mindset are better at responding to crisis and quick to adapt to change as teams adopting the Agile mindset is likely to sustain or even improve their productivity during the crises like Covid-19 pandemic. Adapting to an Agile mindset is important for Agile software development teams during a crisis as a response to changes in the working as well as environmental conditions. This study also shows that by adopting an Agile mindset, development teams are better at responding to the crisis eventually improving productivity. Research limitations for this study-scope of the study could be extended to the larger population across geographies to have improved insights Productivity Factors like- Efforts Efficiency, Backlog-management Index (BMI), and Weighted Average Productivity (VWP) for team members can be included. More behavioral factors for Agile Mindset can be considered. Agile software development teams are characterized by collaboration and responsibility. Recent enforcement of pandemic precautionary measures has enforced Agile software development teams to work remotely and maintain social distancing while in the office. It was challenging for most of the working people to adjust to the new working conditions (Yang et al., 2021) However, in IT organizations, adopting the Agile mindset has ensured continuous software deliveries, took ownership, and quickly adapted to the volatile situations, ultimately resulting into the growth in the productivity unlike to that of other sectors of the economy. In this study, we have analyzed the hypotheses with statistical significance in association with constructs that are in sync with the available literature. Adopting the Agile mindset values has positively impacted the team's behavior resulting in productivity improvement even in the distributed working locations in pandemic situations. The study highlights that adopting to Agile mindset has positively impacted an Agile software development team's productivity during the Covid-19 pandemic. As environmental conditions during Covid-19 were uncertain and ambiguous and teams were working in distributed and disconnected ways, many researchers have believed that it would have affected the overall productivity. This was turned true for most of the sectors of the economy, however, Agile software development teams have shown positive trends in their productivity, as they have adopted the Agile mindset values and principles, during crises.

  • Digitalization of manufacturing for implanting value, configuring
           circularity and achieving sustainability

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Gyan Prakash , Kumar Ambedkar
      Abstract: This paper explores the relationships between Industry 4.0-driven technologies and the circular economy-driven business model (CEDBM) components of value creation, delivery and capture along manufacturing processes. Based on the literature, a research model is developed in which the three CEBDM components are represented by five components: product service system (PSS), product design, industrial symbiosis (IS), consumer interaction and pay-per-use/rental. For each of these five components, enabling Industry 4.0 technologies are identified and vague interdependence relationships were assessed using a fuzzy decision-making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL) method. This paper contributes to the literature by exploring the relationships of the CEDBM components of value creation, value delivery and value capture with Industry 4.0-driven technological enablers. In addition, causal relationships between Industry 4.0 technologies and their relevance for facilitating CE-enabled manufacturing processes are identified, and finally, Industry 4.0-driven technological enablers of CE are categorized as base and front-end technologies. The findings suggest that value delivery-based differentiation provides new avenues for value creation and innovative forms of value capture in CEDBMs. Practitioners can use the findings to develop a roadmap for Industry 4.0-driven technological solutions for CE. CE-driven processes of manufacturing provide not only opportunities for value capture, creation and delivery but also avenues for customer-centric product and service development and effective resource utilization. This paper is the first to identify value creation, delivery and capture processes along with Industry 4.0-enabled manufacturing processes.

  • How does perceived organizational justice mediate talent management of
           non-high potential employees and their outcomes'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Maman Alimansyah , Yoshi Takahashi
      Abstract: This study examines how perceived organizational justice mediates the relationship between talent management (TM) and non-high potential employees (NHPE) outcomes (i.e. affective commitment, job satisfaction, and the intention to leave) in the public sector, thereby clarifying the underlying mechanisms. The authors conducted a causal mediation analysis of the findings of a scenario-based survey with 748 public-sector NHPEs by adopting a post-test experimental design. Perceived distributive justice and perceived procedural justice mediated the relationships among equal resource distribution/TM procedures and NHPE outcomes, respectively. This study extends and clarifies the argument for fairness judgments based on the gap in resource allocation and the presence or absence of the six rules of procedural justice that affect the attitudes and behaviors of NHPEs, who are generally more affected by TM but underexplored, in the public sector in which NHPEs are considered to be more sensitive to TM due to the egalitarian culture of public sector.

  • Predicting complaint voicing or exit amidst Indian consumers: a CHAID
           analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Amit Kumar , Anupriya Kaur
      Abstract: The current study aims to predict consumer complaint status (complainers or non-complainers) based on socio-demographic and psychographic factors and further to discern the differences in behavior disposition of consumer groups concerning determinants of consumer's tendency to exit (TE). The research used survey-based data of 600 Indian consumers of three service sectors (hotel and hospitality, automobile service centers and organized retail stores). Chi-square automatic interaction detector (CHAID) decision tree analysis was used to profile consumers. The results indicated that occupation; income; education; industry and attitude toward complaining were significant factors in profiling consumers as complainers or non-complainers. Further, determinants of TE (discouraging subjective norms, perceived likelihood of successful complaint, lower perceived switching cost, poor employee response, negative past experience and ease of complaint process) vary significantly across the groups of complainers and non-complainers. The research questions in this study were tested with three service sectors consumers in India, so due care should be exercised in generalizing these findings to other sectors and countries. Study replication across other service sectors and countries is recommended to improve the generalizability of these findings with wider socio-demographic samples. Firms striving for consumer retention and aim to extend their consumer life cycle can greatly benefit from the results of this study to understand the customer complaint behavior (CCB) specific to non-complaining (exit) behavior. The future researcher may benefit from replicating and extending the model in different industries for further contribution to the CCB literature. To the best of the author's knowledge, there is no evidence of consumer segmentation based on their complaining behavior or socio-demographic and psychographic factors by employing CHAID decision tree analysis. In addition to illustrating the use of data mining techniques such as CHAID in the field of CCB, it also contributes to the extant literature by researching in a non-Western setting like India.

  • A contextual study of employee turnover intention in Vietnam F&B service
           sector: an integrative perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jung Woo Han
      Abstract: Previous studies on employee turnover did not explore the contextual differences of emerging markets such as Vietnam. As Vietnam is a fast-growing new tiger economy with a high inflow of foreign direct investment, contextual analysis needs to be conducted to handle rising HR issues in the region. The current study aims to analyze paths to employee turnover intention through an integrated model covering factors on individual, team, and organizational levels to understand the contextual difference in the Vietnam F&B service industry. A mixed method was used based on quantitative and qualitative data from three organizations. For the quantitative analysis, a path model was developed and analyzed by SEM-PLS (Smart PLS) based on a sample size of 354. For the qualitative analysis, 32 semi-structured interviews were conducted to explore the contextual understanding in the regional context. Although the current study confirms that the paths among the three levels show the turnover factors developed in the previous study still applicable to the Vietnam context, the strengths and relationships among the team and individual levels imply that the Vietnamese context created a unique HRM environment forming different paths to reach employee turnover decisions. The findings contributed to the literature on employee turnover by developing an integrated model of employee turnover encompassing the three levels, suggesting the different local contexts formed unique paths to employee turnover decisions.

  • NDPD: an improved initial centroid method of partitional clustering for
           big data mining

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Kamlesh Kumar Pandey , Diwakar Shukla
      Abstract: The K-means (KM) clustering algorithm is extremely responsive to the selection of initial centroids since the initial centroid of clusters determines computational effectiveness, efficiency and local optima issues. Numerous initialization strategies are to overcome these problems through the random and deterministic selection of initial centroids. The random initialization strategy suffers from local optimization issues with the worst clustering performance, while the deterministic initialization strategy achieves high computational cost. Big data clustering aims to reduce computation costs and improve cluster efficiency. The objective of this study is to achieve a better initial centroid for big data clustering on business management data without using random and deterministic initialization that avoids local optima and improves clustering efficiency with effectiveness in terms of cluster quality, computation cost, data comparisons and iterations on a single machine. This study presents the Normal Distribution Probability Density (NDPD) algorithm for big data clustering on a single machine to solve business management-related clustering issues. The NDPDKM algorithm resolves the KM clustering problem by probability density of each data point. The NDPDKM algorithm first identifies the most probable density data points by using the mean and standard deviation of the datasets through normal probability density. Thereafter, the NDPDKM determines K initial centroid by using sorting and linear systematic sampling heuristics. The performance of the proposed algorithm is compared with KM, KM++, Var-Part, Murat-KM, Mean-KM and Sort-KM algorithms through Davies Bouldin score, Silhouette coefficient, SD Validity, S_Dbw Validity, Number of Iterations and CPU time validation indices on eight real business datasets. The experimental evaluation demonstrates that the NDPDKM algorithm reduces iterations, local optima, computing costs, and improves cluster performance, effectiveness, efficiency with stable convergence as compared to other algorithms. The NDPDKM algorithm minimizes the average computing time up to 34.83%, 90.28%, 71.83%, 92.67%, 69.53% and 76.03%, and reduces the average iterations up to 40.32%, 44.06%, 32.02%, 62.78%, 19.07% and 36.74% with reference to KM, KM++, Var-Part, Murat-KM, Mean-KM and Sort-KM algorithms. The KM algorithm is the most widely used partitional clustering approach in data mining techniques that extract hidden knowledge, patterns and trends for decision-making strategies in business data. Business analytics is one of the applications of big data clustering where KM clustering is useful for the various subcategories of business analytics such as customer segmentation analysis, employee salary and performance analysis, document searching, delivery optimization, discount and offer analysis, chaplain management, manufacturing analysis, productivity analysis, specialized employee and investor searching and other decision-making strategies in business.

      Authors: Ferry Koster
      Abstract: This paper aims to investigate whether the shift towards the knowledge economy (e.g. an increasing reliance in knowledge in the production of goods and services) is related to the work practices of organizations (aimed at the provision of autonomy, investments in training and the use of technology). The analyses are based on data about over 20,000 companies in 28 European countries. National level indicators of knowledge intensity are related to the work practices of these organizations. Multilevel analysis is applied to test hypotheses. The results show that there is a strong and positive relationship between the knowledge intensity of the economy and the use of knowledge intense work practices. To the best of our knowledge, this is one of the first papers to test whether knowledge intensity at the national level is related to the work practices of organizations.

  • Examining firm self-regulation in the automobile industry: the role of
           situational factors, firm characteristics and association influence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: David E. Cavazos , Nathan Heller
      Abstract: The current study seeks to contribute to current self-regulation research by first exploring the association between the cost of self-regulation and firm self-regulation. The mediating role of association membership and firm slack is additionally explored. Longitudinal analysis of firm-initiated product recalls for 15 manufacturers in the USA automobile industry from 1966 to 2012 has several important findings regarding the motivations for firm self-regulation. The influence of industry associations and firm absorbed slack both contribute to firm self-regulation. The current study begins to address the importance of firm characteristics in predicting self-regulation activities. The bulk of existing research has examined self-regulation at the industry level as an activity performed as a result of the adoption of formalized industry sanctioned standards of practice. This research contributes to such work by examining firm proactivity in the absence of such formal standards.

  • What insisted baby boomers adopt unified payment interface as a payment
           mechanism': an exploration of drivers of behavioral intention

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Poulami Saha , Kunjangada B. Kiran
      Abstract: The unified payment interface (UPI) is in its early stages of adoption for baby boomers. This study explores the factors affecting the behavioral intention of baby boomers to adopt UPI. UTAUT was adopted as theoretical lens of the study and extended with ubiquity, privacy risk and perceived security. The impact of an external factor – effect of COVID-19 was also examined in this study. A consumer intercept survey was used to collect data from baby boomers via a self-administered structured questionnaire. Structural equation modeling was used to establish the relationships among latent variables. Further, using bootstrap re-sampling technique, the role of perceived security as a mediator between risk, ubiquity and behavioral intention was examined. The study confirmed that COVID-19 was the most influential external factor for baby boomers to adopt UPI, followed by performance expectancy, social influence, ubiquity, effort expectancy and perceived security. Apropos of UPI adoption by baby boomers, privacy risk negatively influenced perceived security, whereas perceived security fully mediated the relationship between risk, ubiquity and behavioral intention. The study focused only on baby boomers and their intention to adopt UPI. Hence the results cannot be generalized to all age groups and are specific to the cohort. The present study aims to establish research findings on predicting antecedents of adopting a newly introduced payment mechanism and an exemplary Indian digital innovation, UPI, by baby boomers. This study is first to empirically explore intention of baby boomers toward adoption of UPI.

  • Absorptive capacities, FDI and economic growth in a developing economy: a
           study in the Indian context

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Surbhi Gupta , Surendra S. Yadav , P.K. Jain
      Abstract: The purpose of the study is to examine the moderating impact of absorptive capacity on the foreign direct investment (FDI)–growth link using the data for the period 1995–2019. The authors apply the autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) model and threshold analysis for empirical analysis. The findings indicate that the link between FDI and economic growth is influenced indirectly by absorptive capacities, such as financial development, institutional quality, technological capability, and trade openness. However, while examining the linear FDI–growth nexus, the authors noticed that human capital and infrastructure did not affect the relationship; when the non-linearity in the link is considered, the authors noted that all absorptive capacities (including human capital and infrastructure), when interacted with FDI, have a positive effect on growth. Furthermore, FDI stimulates growth if the absorptive capacities have exceeded a certain threshold level. From a practical standpoint, it is reasonable to conclude that improving absorptive capacities is critical in order to perceive FDI as a growth driver. India has been able to position itself as a preferred destination for FDI (when the major economies are facing a sharp decline in FDI inflows) despite the Covid-19 pandemic. However, it still suffers from low growth. Although much of the literature admits that absorptive capacity is crucial for FDI to promote growth, no study in the case of India examines FDI–growth nexus conditioned upon absorptive capacity. Moreover, the authors have used threshold analysis for assessing the non-linearities in FDI–growth nexus contingent on absorptive capacity.

      Authors: Ana María García-Pérez , Vanessa Yanes-Estévez
      Abstract: This work develops a longitudinal analysis of perceived environmental uncertainty applying the Rasch methodology (1960). The environmental uncertainty is defined as an individual's perceived inability to predict the environment accurately (Milliken, 1987). The study focuses on analysing the state uncertainty from the perspective of the information and under the cognitive approach to the business reality. Rasch measurement theory (1960) is applied, specifically the differential item functioning analysis based on the responses to a survey of SMEs. The main sources of uncertainty for all the SMEs in the sample are two sectors in their general environment: economic and political-legal ones. These segments are the only ones in the environment that generate uncertainty that in 2016 is significantly different from that in 2019, being lower in the latter year. This is a pioneering analysis of uncertainty both for its longitudinal nature and the methodology applied.

      Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is to identify and rank various barriers to pharmacovigilance (PV) in context of emerging economies and examine their interrelationships using the interpretive structural modeling (ISM) approach. The result is a model that offers insights about how to achieve rational and safe use of medicines and ensure patient safety as realized through robust national PV systems. The paper develops a model to analyze the interactions among PV barriers using the ISM approach. Based on input from clinical and medical product development experts, PV barriers in emerging economies were identified and reviewed. The hierarchical interrelationships among these PV barriers were analyzed in context of their driving/dependence powers. Findings of the study identify key PV barriers—lack of resources/infrastructure, weak legislation, unfair burden of disease, lack of PV capacity, training, and enforcement authority—that drive, or strongly influence, other barriers and thwart implementation of robust national PV systems in emerging economies. Pharmaceutical industry factors were PV barriers that were identified as autonomous, implying their relative disconnection from other barriers, and patient PV practices barrier was strongly dependent on other barriers. The paper offers policy- and decision-makers alike with a framework to support further research into interdependencies among key PV barriers in emerging economies. It can serve as an impetus for further research with potential to broadening the understanding of how and why PV systems may be rendered ineffective. Future studies can be planned to apply the ISM approach to study PV barriers in the context of developed economies and draw lessons and implications for policy- and decision-makers by contrasting results from these studies. This paper contributes to the understanding of the multifaceted nature of PV and its barriers. The proposed approach gives public health decision-makers a better comprehension of driver PV barriers that have most influence on others versus dependent PV barriers, which are most influenced by others. Also, knowledge, attitude and practices of patients and caregivers can also be critical PV barriers in emerging economies. This information can be instrumental for public health policymakers, government entities, and health/PV practitioners to identify the PV barriers that they should prioritize for improvement and how to manage trade-offs between these barriers. PV barriers in emerging economies, as compared to developed economies, are inherently different and need to be examined in their specific context. The hierarchical ISM model suggests that resources and regulation initiatives by governments in emerging economies lead to through informed/enabled pharmaceutical supply chain players and eventually drive PV-specific knowledge, attitude, and practice outcomes improvements across their populace. This paper highlights the deployment of ISM approach as a health policy decision support tool in the identifying and ranking barriers to effective PV systems in emerging economies, in terms of their contextual relationships, to achieve a better understanding as to how these interrelationships can affect national PV system outcomes.

  • Fighting corruption in international development: a grounded theory of
           managing projects within a complex socio-cultural context

      Abstract: Taking a transdisciplinary viewpoint, the authors synthesize the literature on the theoretical, methodological, and epistemological issues in the study of corruption as a construct in project management (PM) as applied to IDPs. While the study of corruption has focused on “who and why” to help understand corruption's occurrence, there is a lack of analysis on “where and how” to ensure corruption's prevention and improve PM to better support delivery actors. The authors rely on four theoretical frameworks to help interpret evidence and formulate a coherent model for managing project socio-cultural context: organizational interests theory (OIT), principal-agent theory (PAT), culturalist theory (CT) and institutional theory (IT). International development projects (IDPs) have become very complex with greater diversity of donor agencies and aid delivery actors. The relative lack of success of development aid has been linked in part to corruption at various levels. PM methods are essential to help prevent this behavior. To assess the complexity of this problem, the authors completed a grounded theory research based on thirty interviews with international development experts, balancing representation from donor and receiving countries, as well as project managers in public and private sectors. Data are analyzed using a qualitative sorting process using the software NVivo. Results show that PM, beyond PM's practical nature and technical focus, can offer numerous opportunities to prevent corruption impact on project actors, even in a context where anti-corruption initiatives may be perceived as less effective. The authors present an original theoretical model that illustrates which actors, events and context are related and linked in the dynamic efforts to understand and combat corruption in international development endeavors. Context is linked to dynamics: foreign aid cycle, capture opportunities, context pressures, personal damages done, and control mechanisms exercised. The outcomes and quality of IDPs remain highly controversial, especially with perception of corruption by various stakeholders. Some experts recognize the inefficacy of applying classical PM tools and processes. By contrasting findings to the literature, the authors conclude that an alternative approach to overcome the taboos and prejudices in studying corruption is to ask a different research question. A research agenda is proposed for solving this phenomenon. To guide PM research on development projects, focusing on the “where and how” of corruption requires addressing how actors build their knowledge management capabilities, and address the social and cultural challenges inherent to IDPs.
