  2. Value Creation by Toolkits for User Innovation and Design: The Case of the Watch Market

    Franke, Nikolaus; Piller, Frank
    This study analyzes the value created by so-called "toolkits for user innovation and design", a new method of integrating customers into new product development and design. Toolkits allow customers to create their own product, which in turn is produced by the manufacturer. In our study, we asked (1) if customers actually make use of the solution space offered by toolkits, and if so, (2) how much value the self-design actually creates. In our study, we used a relatively simple, design-focused toolkit for a set of four experiments with a total of 717 participants, 267 of whom actually created their own watches. The heterogeneity of the resulting design solutions...

  3. Entrepreneurial Intentions of Business Students: A Benchmarking Study

    Lüthje, Christian; Franke, Nikolaus
    It is widely accepted that the educational system of universities has to provide an academic environment that may serve as a catalysts for high-technology start-ups. The academic tradition of entrepreneurship in German-speaking countries is very short. Until recently, fostering innovations and new product development through entrepreneurship has not been regarded as a primary task of universities. However, perspectives have changed in this respect, and there have been numerous attempts to enhance the role of university graduates as founders of innovative businesses. In this paper, we compare the entrepreneurial intentions of students at two German-speaking universities (the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration and the University of Munich)...

  5. European co-ordination of long-term care benefits: the individual costs of migration between Bismarck and Belveridge systems. Illustrative case studies.

    Fischer, Timo
    The paper to be presented discusses the default in policy coordination or harmonisation in European Social Policy and the emerging private cost borne by migrating individuals. The different designs of national social security schemes imply administrative hurdles and incompatibilities. The latter may also discourage labour movements between EU - countries since migration could bring about a reduction or a loss of social security rights acquired on the basis of past employment and past contributions. The access to new benefits may be hampered as long as some national social security insurance programs demand a minimum coverage period as a prerequisite for...

  7. Balanced scorecards with SAP strategic enterprise management

    Prosser, Alexander; Auer, Josef; Kellermann, Sarah
    Balanced Scorecards have developed into a main management tool for analysing the inter-dependencies between the functional areas of a business organisation. Using SAP^TM Strategic Enterprise Management this book serves as a companion to a practical lecture on how to implement a Balanced Scorecard in an IT system. Students create the underlying Data Warehouse structures, define the key figures and their inter-dependencies, build the Scorecard system and analyse it in a realistic case study. A host of free, Web-based materials may be used in conjunction with this book, available at http://erp.wu-wien.ac.at. The material includes transparencies for classroom use and a case...

  10. An integrative model of multinational team performance

    Fink, Gerhard; Neyer, Anne-Katrin; Kölling, Marcus; Meierewert, Sylvia
    We provide a framework for understanding managerial implications of multinational teams. In addition to context, four major categories of variables have a determining influence on multinational team performance: universal values, norms of behavior, perceptions of others and self, and personality traits. Size of teams, kind of task, learning opportunities, power and interests change the effects of these variables. Of particular importance is the team implementation process, which can neutralize adverse effects of wrong perceptions, helps to establish team norms and, thus, contributes to success of multinational teams.

  11. La crisis Argentinia. Causas y fundamentos.

    Vilker, Ana Silvia
    Argentina era reconocida en Europa por ser el país del trigo y de las vacas y también por el tango y el fútbol. Sin embargo en la actualidad es mencionada con regularidad en los medios de comunicación por estar en cesación de pagos -default- y en menor medida por la situación de pobreza e indigencia de una buena parte de su población. Para poner en perspectiva a la Argentina de hoy se realizará en el presente trabajo un breve recorrido sobre algunos aspectos de su desarrollo político-económico reciente, que se consideran esenciales para comprender y explicar el proceso que desembocó...

  12. Entwicklungsforschung als Beitrag zu einer anderen Welt

    Novy, Andreas
    This article analyses research on development (Entwicklungsforschung) as a new discipline for understanding world development as an integral process. It starts by describing the crisis of social science as the crisis of the enlightenment project and of rationality. The dialectics of enlightenment consists in a modernisation project that optimises the means of intervention in society, neglecting rational deliberation on its ends. Today, social sciences who do not subordinate itself to the cash nexus are being marginalized by liberal reforms aiming at the privatisation of knowledge. An alternative and integrated social science has to overcome disciplinary boundaries as proposed by interdisciplinary...

  14. Das Partizipative Budget in Porto Alegre. Die Dialektik von staatlichen und nicht-staatlichen Formen sozialer Innovation.

    Novy, Andreas; Leubolt, Bernhard
    Dieser Artikel beschäftigt sich mit dem Modell der Budgetmitbestimmung in Porto Alegre. Aus dieser konkreten staatlichen Initiative, die die Zivilgesellschaft in einen sich öffnenden Staat einbindet, können Lehren für soziale Innovationen in Europa gezogen werden. Im Zuge des Widerstands gegen die Militärdiktatur bildeten sich Volksbewegungen, die gleichermaßen Staat und Kapital kritisierten. Diese herrschaftskritische Interpretation von Stadtteilbewegungen machte im Laufe der 1980er Jahre einer liberalen Interpretation Platz. In Verdrehung der Gramscianischen Intention wird Zivilgesellschaft zunehmend als die autonome Organisation nichtstaatlicher Organisationen begriffen. Damit wurden nicht nur zentrale Einsichten der marxistischen Staatstheorie über Bord geworfen, sondern gleichzeitig auch den liberalen Reformen des...

  15. Life after crisis for capital and labor in the era of neoliberal globalization

    Onaran, Özlem
    The aim of this paper is to discuss the outcomes of neoliberal globalization from the perspective of labor in the developing countries, with a particular emphasis on the crises that followed the substantial liberalization in capital accounts in the 1990s. Although a lot has been said about the effects of capital account liberalization on the macroeconomic performance of the economies, less attention is paid to the different effects on labor vs. capital. This paper analyses the outcomes of neoliberal globalization for labor in nine developing countries, and focuses on the episodes of crisis as part of the general class struggle...

  16. Bayesian parsimonious covariance estimation for hierarchical linear mixed models

    Frühwirth-Schnatter, Sylvia; Tüchler, Regina
    We considered a non-centered parameterization of the standard random-effects model, which is based on the Cholesky decomposition of the variance-covariance matrix. The regression type structure of the non-centered parameterization allows to choose a simple, conditionally conjugate normal prior on the Cholesky factor. Based on the non-centered parameterization, we search for a parsimonious variance-covariance matrix by identifying the non-zero elements of the Cholesky factors using Bayesian variable selection methods. With this method we are able to learn from the data for each effect, whether it is random or not, and whether covariances among random effects are zero or not. An application...

  17. A model-based frequency constraint for mining associations from transaction data

    Hahsler, Michael
    In this paper we develop an alternative to minimum support which utilizes knowledge of the process which generates transaction data and allows for highly skewed frequency distributions. We apply a simple stochastic model (the NB model), which is known for its usefulness to describe item occurrences in transaction data, to develop a frequency constraint. This model-based frequency constraint is used together with a precision threshold to find individual support thresholds for groups of associations. We develop the notion of NB-frequent itemsets and present two mining algorithms which find all NB-frequent itemsets in a database. In experiments with publicly available transaction...

  18. Econometric computing with HC and HAC covariance matrix estimators

    Zeileis, Achim
    Data described by econometric models typically contains autocorrelation and/or heteroskedasticity of unknown form and for inference in such models it is essential to use covariance matrix estimators that can consistently estimate the covariance of the model parameters. Hence, suitable heteroskedasticity-consistent (HC) and heteroskedasticity and autocorrelation consistent (HAC) estimators have been receiving attention in the econometric literature over the last 20 years. To apply these estimators in practice, an implementation is needed that preferably translates the conceptual properties of the underlying theoretical frameworks into computational tools. In this paper, such an implementation in the package sandwich in the R system for...

  20. A note on franchising and wage bargaining

    Grandner, Thomas
    A franchise contract relocates distributable rent between franchisor and franchisee. With decentralized wage bargaining this modifies the position of the union in wage bargaining. If the rent is relocated to the franchisor completely, then even a strong union is not able to raise the wage above reservation level in the franchisee's firm. If franchisor and franchisee negotiate on rent division, there is an incentive to increase franchise fee with the consequence that franchisee's wage is pushed down. Therefore the overall rent assigned to labor depends on the differences of labor intensity in the franchisor's and franchisee's firm. Firm owners may...
