The nature of human relationships (HR) within supply chains has received a superficial attention in the drive for continuous improvement (CI). Persistent pressures affecting global engineering companies have limited the potential to address the HR element. Simply transferring mature western concepts and analytical tools does not capture the dynamics of the global production workforce. This paper proposes a new theoretical perspective encompassing an evaluative tool, thus moving beyond formulaic ...

We aim to address inconsistencies in the research literature on whether exploration and exploitation compete with or complement each other in their effect on radically innovative team outcomes. This study takes into consideration the moderating effect of team learning behavior, which includes seeking or providing feedback, sharing information and elaborating task-relevant information, and team promotion focus, which refers to the motivation for innovation. Using results obtained from 108 researc...

The system of systems (SoS) theory is an important topic in modern systems engineering management. Previous studies focus mainly on using it to explore large-scale physical systems. Relatively little is known about its applications in business operations. In this paper, through the SoS theory, we explore sustainable fashion supply chain management via a multimethodological approach. To be specific, we first investigate and indicate that the fashion supply chain is a well-qualified SoS. We then p...

Thanks to technological developments produced by scientists and engineers, franchising has grown to become a business model of choice for firm expansion in knowledge-intensive industries. We propose a formal model to explore to what degree franchisors should adapt their business practices or routines to successfully expand their franchises in newly targeted markets. By simultaneously considering the franchise's need to adapt locally in a new market and the level of business routine tacitness at ...

How do firms leverage existing innovations for the next round of innovations? We develop a novel concept of generative capability in product innovation to address this question. Generative capability applies the mechanisms of iteration and rapid knowledge integration to guide innovation activities. Based on panel data from 2001 to 2009 of 56 344 manufacturing firm-year observations in China, we find that institutional complexity and internationalization are positively related to generative capab...

We consider a supply chain consisting of a supplier and a buyer. The buyer faces demand as a function of the selling price. There is risk of supply disruption, but the supplier can rebuild his capacity if he has invested for the capacity restoration before a disruption. To motivate the supplier to invest, the buyer can use one of two incentive contracts, namely direct and indirect . With a direct contract, the buyer provides a financial subsidy to share the supplier's capacity restoration cost w...

This paper focuses on who should control the inventory and who should lead the supply chain under consignment contract. The supply chain consists of one supplier and one retailer, and inventory inaccuracy occurs on the retailer's side. Vendor-managed inventory (VMI) and retailer-managed inventory (RMI) models are analyzed in two different supply chain power structures: where the supplier is the Stackelberg leader (referred as SVMI and SRMI) and where the retailer is the Stackelberg leader (refer...
This paper explores the patterns of knowledge production of science and engineering from catching-up via overtaking to the achievement of leadership in global industries. In particular, it examines the depth and direction of knowledge production with proxy variables of patents and bibliometric data of a latecomer firm. Moreover, it explores the changing patterns of knowledge sourcing in the firm during the transition from catch-up to forging ahead and with specific references to the experience o...

Free trial strategy, which allows a user to use service/product freely for a limited time, is widely applied in online service. With time-based pricing, we first consider that the service provider launches its initial version and offers a fixed length of free trial. We observe that the optimal length of free trial cannot be more than 1/3 of the initial version's lifespan. Then, we analyze the two-stage setting where a strategic or myopic service provider (SP) upgrades its initial version in the ...

In large organizations, local use of innovations is not enough; extracting the full use of the innovation requires deployment across the organization. The purpose of this paper is to explore strategies for the deployment of service innovations and factors influencing success. We adopt an inductive theory-building approach with a longitudinal embedded case study of ten successful service innovations. We find two deployment strategies: required adoption, in which subsidiaries are required to adopt...
