• IT-Outsourcing ist kein Selbstläufer

      Buchwald, Arne; Urbach, Nils; Würz, Tobias (Wirtschaftsinformatik & Management, 2014)
      Obwohl Unternehmen und IT-Dienstleister mit der Auslagerung von IT-Aufgaben mittlerweile jahrzehntelang Erfahrung gesammelt haben, ist die erfolgreiche Umsetzung von IT-Outsourcing-Vorhaben nach wie vor kein Selbstläufer. So ist in der Praxis auch 25 Jahre nach dem ersten größeren IT-Outsourcing weiterhin eine hohe Erfolgsvarianz zu beobachten.
    • It’s the end of the competition: When social comparison Is not always motivating for goal achievement

      Chan, Elaine; Briers, Barbara (Journal of Consumer Research, 2019)
      Nowadays consumers can easily connect with others who are pursuing similar goals via smart devices and mobile apps. This technology also enables them to compare how well they are doing relative to others in a variety of contexts, ranging from online gaming to losing weight to loyalty programs. This research investigates consumers’ motivation to achieve a goal when they compare themselves with a superior other who has already attained the goal. Building on the literature on social comparison, and on competition in particular, we find that consumers are less motivated when the superior other has attained the goal compared to when the superior other is just ahead, keeping the relative distance equal. This negative effect on motivation is evident even in situations in which consumers can still attain the same goal as the superior other. We argue and demonstrate that this effect occurs because the other’s goal attainment limits consumers’ prospect to compete and overtake the superior other. Six experimental studies show evidence for this effect in hypothetical loyalty programs and behavioral task completion. These findings provide a deeper understanding of the motivational effect of social comparison, which have implications for marketing managers and public policy makers.

    • Judging Factor Abundance

      Bowen, Harry; Sveikauskas, Leo (The Quarterly Journal of Economics, 1992)
      Recent theory casts doubt on the frequently used interindustry regression method of inferring a country's abundant factors. The empirical importance of these theoretical qualifications is examined by comparing regression-derived estimates of factor abundance with both revealed and actual factor abundances for 35 countries and 12 resources. The theoretical importance of trade imbalances for the reliability of the regression estimates is demonstrated, and a theoretically consistent trade imbalance correction is proposed and implemented. The results indicate that, despite valid theoretical concerns, the regression estimates are generally reliable indicators of revealed factor abundance. Therefore, the innumerable regression studies conducted over the past 30 years can be considered to provide reliable evidence concerning the validity of the factor abundance theory.
    • Judgmental forecast adjustments over different time horizons

      Van den Broeke, Maud; De Baets, Shari; Vereecke, Ann; Baecke, Philippe; Vanderheyden, Karlien (Omega: the international Journal of Management Science, 2019)
      Accurate demand forecasting is the cornerstone of a firm’s operations. The statistical system forecasts are often judgmentally adjusted by forecasters who believe their knowledge can improve the final forecasts. While empirical research on judgmental forecast adjustments has been increasing, an important aspect is under-studied: the impact of these adjustments over different time horizons. Collecting data from 8 business cases, retrieving over 307,200 forecast adjustments, this work assesses how the characteristics (e.g., size and direction) and accuracy of consecutive adjustments change over different time horizons. We find that closer to the sales point, the number of adjustments increases and adjustments become larger and more positive; and that adjustments, both close and distant from the sales point, can deteriorate the final forecast accuracy. We discuss how these insights impact operational activities, such as production planning.

      Cumps, Bjorn; Viaene, Stijn (Journal of Information Technology Teaching Cases, 2015)
      When KBC Bank introduced their mobile banking application in 2011 they delivered much more than a piece of software. Mobile banking was a way to focus on their customers and rebuild trust. Yet, this case is not so much about what they delivered but how they delivered it. Agile development brought along both challenges and opportunities for KBC. The case explores how agile compares to traditional ways of ICT development. Can banks, given the new digital challenges, really build their future ICT portfolios on agile development?
