Innovation Acceptance
  • Author : Patrick Planing
  • Release : 07 February 2014
  • Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media
  • Pages : 326 Pages
  • ISBN : 3658050055
  • Category : Business & Economics

Synopsis:
Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) provide the opportunity to increase road safety and driving comfort. Reviewing existing empirical work on comparable innovations, Patrick Planing derives potential acceptance constructs, which together with the results of thirty-two semi-structured interviews, have constituted the basis for a survey instrument that was consequently administered to a sample of over 400 participants from the target population. The resulting regression model shows that perceived safety and comfort benefits are most decisive for the acceptance of ADAS, while desire to exert control was found to most strongly support resistance to this technology.

Airline Economics
  • Author : Giovanni Alberto Tabacco
  • Release : 15 November 2016
  • Publisher : Springer
  • Pages : 78 Pages
  • ISBN : 3319467298
  • Category : Business & Economics

Synopsis:
This book presents an original empirical investigation of the market structure of airline city pair markets, shedding new light on the workings of competitive processes between firms. Examining a cross-section of US airline city pairs, Tabacco proposes for the first time that the industry can be understood as a natural oligopoly, each airline market being dominated by one to three airline carriers regardless of market size. The author questions the extent to which airlines deliberately prevent head-to-head competition within city pair markets, and draws intriguing conclusions about competitive forces from the observed market structure. Uncovering some of the main corporate strategies of the airline industry, the book is of immediate relevance to industry managers and practitioners, as well as academic economists.

Innovation in High Reliability Ambidextrous Organizations
  • Author : Jan Kraner
  • Release : 05 April 2018
  • Publisher : Springer
  • Pages : 222 Pages
  • ISBN : 3319749269
  • Category : Business & Economics

Synopsis:
Companies need to invest in innovation in order to ensure their long-term survival. This book focuses on how and why key players support or obstruct the implementation of a technological innovation in ambidextrous organizations, and how the interaction between players involved in daily business and innovation affects implementation of innovation in 'high reliability organizations'. This book argues that an organization has to create new innovations or adopt innovations to constantly deliver attractive products on the one hand, while also adjusting and improving current products and processes on the other. In turn, it addresses a specific problem: What if a company operates in an innovation-averse and procedural environment and culture? Drawing on case studies, focus group studies and a unique analytical framework, it then provides ways for companies to overcome this situation.
