The Challenges of Supplier Financing Adoption within P2P
Spend Matters online
P2P solutions have no doubt pushed the adoption of SCF to suppliers, but the final challenge lies in the SCF capabilities of the P2P solution and its ability to promote financing options to suppliers.
Coffee With… Eve Rosenzweig
In her latest research, Eve Rosenzweig, associate professor of information systems and operations management, examines the role of national culture in delivering excellent service quality worldwide. Stephanie Sears 00OX 02C 14EvMBA, who has organized meetings around the world for an engineering society and now as director of global operations business planning and analysis with Equifax, knows a thing or two about the importance of culturally sensitive business practices. Rosenzweig and Sears met for the first time over coffee, trading insights and stories while forging a new friendship.
Goizueta women work together to foster community
It’s been a busy start to the 2013-2014 academic year for Goizueta Women in Business (GWIB). The student led organization provides professional and personal development opportunities for women at Goizueta by fostering relationships inside and outside the Emory community.“Having a community of likeminded individuals is very important. There aren’t very many women at the MBA level in business school and GWIB does a great job of bringing outside expertise in as well as fostering the talent on campus,” says Eve Rosenzweig, associate professor of information systems & operations management and GWIB faculty advisor.
A contingent view of e-collaboration and performance in manufacturingJournal of Operations Management
2009 Manufacturers are increasingly utilizing Internet-based tools to more readily conduct collaborative activities with key business customers. While the emerging conventional wisdom suggests that the greater the extent to which manufacturers engage in Internet-enabled commerce with downstream business customers the better the performance, we espouse an alternative view. Consistent with the relational view of competitive advantage and contingency theory, we develop a model and a series of hypotheses that specify how ...
Operations strategy research in the POMS journalProduction and Operations Management
2005 In this paper, we examine the operations strategy literature in the POMS journal to determine what has been learned and to suggest new directions for further study in this important area of research. Our review of this literature resulted in the selection of thirty-one relevant articles, many of which draw upon multiple theoretical perspectives. We identify eight such theoretical perspectives, and go on to classify these perspectives in terms of the scope of inquiry employed in the research (focused versus aggregated) and the researcher's ...
Towards a theory of competitive progression: evidence from high‐tech manufacturingJournal of Operations Management
2004 This study replicates and extends Ferdows and De Meyers' observed 'sand cone' model of cumulative competitive capabilities by means of Roth's related competitive progression theory (CPT). Using path analysis, we model and test the relationships among the generic competitive capability constructs of conformance quality, delivery reliability, volume flexibility, and low cost as predicted by CPT. Our results, drawn from a sample of high-tech manufacturers, provide further evidence that on average, these four capabilities are ...
A tale of two countries’ conservatism, service quality, and feedback on customer satisfactionJournal of Service Research
2004 This article compares the influence of service quality on customer satisfaction in the United Kingdom and the United States and considers the moderating effect of systematic customer feedback and complaint processes. Propositions are developed concerning country differences based on British conservatism. Hypotheses were tested using data from the International Service Study. The results support the conservatism hypothesis, empirically demonstrating that customer reaction to good service is similar, but UK and US customers ...
The influence of an integration strategy on competitive capabilities and business performance: an exploratory study of consumer products manufacturersJournal of Operations Management
2003 In this paper, we expand upon recent research by Frohlich and Westbrook that characterizes the influence of supply chain integration on performance. Introducing supply chain integration intensity as a proxy variable for Frohlich and Westbrook's 'outward-facing supply chain strategy', we investigate the ways that manufacturing-based competitive capabilities mediate the relationship between supply chain integration and business performance. While ...
