    ABSTRACT: Intellectual capital has for the past decades been evidenced as an important source of competitive advantages and differentiation at the firm level. At the same time, innovation has become a critical factor for companies to ensure their sustainability and even their survival in a globalized business landscape. Having in mind these two crucial concepts for business success, this study intends to build on the relationships between intellectual capital and product innovation at the firm level. Specifically, we will design and test a model based on the Analytic Hierarchy Process, whose aim is to allow the prioritization of intellectual capital elements according to their relative importance for product innovation performance at the firm level. The main goal of this research is to build a diagnosis and action tool that helps business managers incorporate an intellectual capital perspective into their product innovation initiatives. This framework will help managers to better understand which intellectual capital elements are more critical to their product innovation efforts, and thereby systematize actions and clarify resource allocation priorities to improve their product innovation capabilities. In order to validate the practicability of this proposal, the methodology was empirically applied to a Portuguese innovative company. © 2015, Internationala Journal of Business Science and Applied Management.

    ABSTRACT: Prior studies examining the association between social capital and self-reported health status of disadvantaged households is rare. This study examines whether traditional health beliefs influence the impact of social capital on self-reported health of disadvantaged households in rural India. Results reveal that structural social capital (i.e., group membership, group support, bonding, bridging, linking) is strongly associated with self-reported health. Conversely, cognitive social capital has a weak relationship with health status. Traditional health beliefs moderate the relationship between social capital and self-reported health status. Social capital has a positive correlation with self-reported health status among disadvantaged households who possess lower levels of traditional health beliefs as compared to those who possess higher levels of traditional health beliefs.

    ABSTRACT: This paper focuses on the use of Delphi technique in building consensus in practice. More specifically, it reviews some fuzzy issues regarding the expert’s panel selection and the questionnaire design, while it provides two case examples for the consensus measurement. Hence, examining some controversies, it makes obvious that the purpose of the study and the homogeneity of the sample are crucial fact ors when designing the Delphi procedure. However, what still remains unclear is the approach in measuring consensus, which varies from study to study. In this case, the present paper recommends a complementary use of three measures to assess consensus, since each one separately could not be thought of as a good proxy of it. These measures are: (i) the interquartile range, (ii) the standard deviation and (iii) the 51% percentage of respondents lying in the ‘highly important’ or ‘strongly agreeing’ category. © 2014, Internationala Journal of Business Science and Applied Management.

    ABSTRACT: Emotional intelligence is gaining prevalence in all the walks of personal and professional lives of individual as well as the organizations. With the increasing demands of the world of work, these tiny clusters of abilities and aptitudes help an individual adapt better and manage a meaningful work life with enhanced values and ethical standards. It is desirous on the part of the organizations to tap this potential and lead the company towards an ethical work environment leading to effective performance and heightened satisfaction. With this forethought in mind, the current paper sets out to examine the relationship between the dimensions of emotional intelligence and ethics at workplace in Indian business organizations. The results suggest that emotional intelligence and its dimensions are significantly related to ethics at workplace and variables of emotional intelligence namely, self awareness, interpersonal connectivity and emotional regulation have a predictive relationship with ethics at workplace.

    ABSTRACT: Computer-based group idea generation is used in a variety of organizational settings to generate ideas that are helpful in attaining a goal. In such situations, the characteristics of the interaction may impact on the group processes, and accordingly on group performance. This paper reports on a study investigating the impacts of synchronicity, parallelism and identification on ideation performance. The results show that both parallelism and synchronicity are important for ideation performance, but that the levels of these affordances have no impacts when it comes to generation of low quality ideas. However, as the quality criteria are sharpened, the importance of the affordances increases. The results thus show that high degrees of parallelism and synchronicity are important for generation of high-quality ideas in computer-mediated group work. The results also point to the importance of adopting rigorous measures when investigating group ideation performance. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
