Project
The probably easiest way to run custom models for mediation, moderation and conditional process analysis. This tool generates readily executable syntax to run statistical analyses using Andrew Hayes' PROCESS macro.
Project
Through a carefully designed procedure, the Innovation Index captures consumers’ perceptions of firms’ innovativeness and the changes that result from these innovations. The main focus is on assessing perceived firm innovativeness and on examining the effects on firms’ strategic positioning and customer loyalty.
Project
This project aims to find ways to convince consumers to be more accepting of artificial intelligence services in the settings in which they are likely to encounter them.
