  1. What affects public acceptance of recycled and desalinated water?

    Dolnicar, Sara; Hurlimann, Anna; Grün, Bettina
    This paper identifies factors that are associated with higher levels of public acceptance for recycled and desalinated water. For the first time, a wide range of hypothesized factors, both of socio-demographic and psychographic nature, are included simultaneously. The key results, based on a survey study of about 3000 respondents are that: (1) drivers of the stated likelihood of using desalinated water differ somewhat from drivers of the stated likelihood of using recycled water; (2) positive perceptions of, and knowledge about, the respective water source are key drivers for the stated likelihood of usage; and (3) awareness of water scarcity, as...

  2. Formative Constructs Implemented via Common Factors

    Treiblmaier, Horst; Bentler, Peter M.; Mair, Patrick
    Recently there has been a renewed interest in formative measurement and its role in properly specified models. Formative measurement models are difficult to identify, and hence to estimate and test. Existing solutions to the identification problem are shown to not adequately represent the formative constructs of interest. We propose a new two-step approach to operationalize a formatively measured construct that allows a closely matched common factor equivalent to be included in any structural equation model. We provide an artificial example and an original empirical study of privacy to illustrate our approach. Detailed proofs are given in an appendix. (author's abstract)

  3. Mobile Services Adoption Model

    Abu Ghannam, Bashar
    This research presents an explanatory model for consumers' adoption of mobile services. This model uses the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology presented by Venkatesh in 2003 as a baseline and integrates the Perceived Enjoyment, Mobile Affinity, Perceived Price of Service and the Frequency of Mobile Usage as to investigate the Attitude and the Intention to Use mobile services. The proposed model was empirically tested using data collected from a field survey where 1095 respondents filled out the two pages questionnaire. A structural equation modeling approach was used to test the proposed model and later to develop a...

  5. Hybridization in mergers and acquisitions

    Dauber, Daniel
    According to numerous studies, mergers and acquisitions (M&As) tend to fail more often than being profitable. While strategic fit seems to be a pre-requisit for M&A sucess, organizational culture differeces between merging organizations seem to set boundaries for achieving the synergies identified prior to the deal. This doctoral thesis deals with hybridization, i.e. the blending of organizational cultures, in the context of M&As and provides detailed insights into how this phenomenon shapes the outcome of such strategic activities. Based on a qualitative research design (3 case studies, grounded theory, 55 narrative interviews) five different forms of hybridization were identified: (1) Vintage...
