    • Facets and dimensions of organizational identification

      Boros, Smaranda (2007)
      In the area of business processes, modeling is usually a collaborative activity. In it, stakeholders analyze or design business processes, however, one of the challenges is that the group members typically have diverse backgrounds and conflicting interests, which make it difficult to arrive at a model that represents a consensus. Therefore, it is important to study the way in which modeling teams are organized to overcome these problems. To approach this issue, this paper investigates the modeling behavior of such groups with the help of a tool that supports collaborative modeling while allowing for the effective collection of data on modeling activities. This author identifies the roles that the participants play in that process and derive patterns of team organization. Structured observation yields a detailed process model concerning basic modeling activities.
    • Facilitating consumer choice through goal-based labels

      Geskens, Kristof; Goedertier, Frank; Geuens, Maggie; Weijters, Bert (2011)
      There has been little research on how market disruptions affect customer–brand relationships and how firms can sustain brand loyalty when disruptions occur. Drawing from social identity theory and the brand loyalty literature, the authors propose a conceptual framework to examine these issues in a specific market disruption, namely, the introduction of a radically new brand. The framework focuses on the time-varying effects of customers' identification with and perceived value of the incumbent relative to the new brand on switching behavior. The authors divert from the conventional economic perspective of treating brand switching as functional utility maximization to propose that brand switching can also result from customers' social mobility between brand identities. The results from longitudinal data of 679 customers during the launch of the iPhone in Spain show that both relative customer–brand identification and relative perceived value of the incumbent inhibit switching behavior, but their effects vary over time. Relative customer–brand identification with the incumbent apparently exerts a stronger longitudinal restraint on switching behavior than relative perceived value of the incumbent. The study has important strategic implications for devising customer relationship strategies and brand investment

    • Failure processes and causes of company bankruptcy: a typology

      Ooghe, Hubert; De Prijcker, Sofie (2006)
      This paper describes a typology of failure processes within companies. Based on case studies and considering companies' ages and management characteristics, we discovered four types of failure processes. The first failure process describes the deterioration of unsuccessful start-up companies leaded by a management with a serious deficiency in managerial and industry- related experience. The second process reveals the failure process of ambitious growth companies. Those companies have, after a failed investment, insufficient financial means to adjust their way of doing business to the changes in the environment in order to prevent bankruptcy. Third, we describe the failure process of dazzled growth companies, leaded by an overconfident management without a realistic view on the company's financial situation. Lastly, the failure process of apathetic established companies, describes the gradual deterioration of established companies where management had lost touch with the changing environment. We also found that there is a great difference in the presence and importance of specific causes of bankruptcy between the distinctive failure processes . Errors made by management, errors in corporate policy and changes in the general and immediate environments differ considerably between each of the four failure processes.

    • Fair process perspectives on strategy creation

      Tackx, Koen (2015)
      In this dissertation, more efficient and effective methodologies of formulating and implementing strategy are elaborated, relying on the foundations of procedural justice theory, which states that when a decision-making process is considered “fair”, people to whom the process is applied demonstrate higher levels of trust and commitment.

    • Faith institutions and investment: an empirical study

      Louche, Céline; Arenas, Daniel; van Cranenburgh, Katinka C. (2010)
      This study contributes to the emerging empirical studies on roles and responsibilities of boards in nonprofit organizations by identifying competencies of volunteer board members. We identified how two types of constituents—volunteer board members and sports members—perceived competencies of volunteer board members in community sports clubs. We used the repertory grid technique to draw cognitive maps and to reveal the perceived reality of these constituents. Our results suggest that constituents within a group share similar perceptions of competencies of outstanding performing board members, whereas they agree less on perceptions of poor performing board members. This study reveals that cognitive (e.g., having a long-term vision, having professionalism), emotional intelligence (e.g., being reliable, being honest), and social intelligence (e.g., listening to others, being jovial/nice to be with) competencies are necessary to be perceived as an outstanding performing board member.

    • Family or founder? The role of social identity in explaining the use of microloans

      Vermeire, Jacob; Lepoutre, Jan; Meuleman, Miguel (Academy of Management Proceedings, 2017)
      Poverty is one of the greatest challenges of our times and microfinance organizations try to help reduce poverty by providing microloans for enterprise development. However, recent studies have demonstrated that the positive impact of microloans on the lives of the poor is generally very limited. In this light, understanding why and how individuals use microloans is an important component of making microlending more effective. In this empirical study, we employ an inductive multiple-case study design to develop an understanding of microloan use among 7 female firm founders in rural South Africa. We found patterned differences in the salience of the firm founders' social identity, the construction of an option set of possible uses for the microloan, and finally the dominant loan utilisation. Our inductive model provides an important extension to the microfinance literature and the emerging stream of theorizing around founder social identities.
