The International Business literature has recently sought to determine the drivers of R and D role changes in foreign subsidiaries over time. Yet, very few studies have examined network effects to explain this evolution. To fill this gap in the literature, the present work focuses on changes in subsidiary capabilities and on the dynamic mechanisms by which their R and D role might evolve, especially, as a consequence of their interaction with a variety of networks. Thus, the core aim of this paper is to summarize the findings from the previous literature as a first step for developing a general theoretical framework that integrates internal and external network embeddedness and to discuss its implications for the evolution in the R and D role of subsidiaries. The literature review highlights the need to investigate how subsidiary R and D roles evolve as a consequence of their being simultaneously engaged in both intra-organizational and local networks. © 2012 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Abstract In this note we propose an application of the method of maximum entropy in the mean to solve a class of inverse problems comprising classification problems and feasibility problems appearing in optimization. Such problems may be thought of as linear inverse problems with convex constraints imposed on the solution as well as on the data. The method of maximum entropy in the mean proves to be a very useful tool to deal with this type of problems. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

The purpose of this work is to determine the importance of the interaction of Information Technology (IT) resources and capabilities, in complement of organizational resources and capabilities to explain the differences in generation of sustainable competitive advantages and superior performance among Colombian banking institutions. It uses a framework based on the resource-based-view (RBV) to set three sets of factors (Human, Managerials and Technological) that are analysed according to their potential complementary to IT, through the correlation analysis that is applied to representative sample of Colombian banks. Result shows that the capabilities to adapt to change, business knowledge, improvement, teamwork and alignment have relevant roles on the effective development of the competitiveness in this sector. © 2012 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

In this paper we consider an inverse problem appearing in rheology, consisting of determining a spectral measure over the set of relaxation times, that yields an observed collection of loss and storage moduli. Mathematically speaking, the problem consists of solving a system of Fredholm equations. To solve it, we propose an extended version of the maximum entropy method in the mean which is flexible enough to incorporate potential measurement errors. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

Online shopping has increasingly replaced traditional retail shopping, as a large number of consumers have adopted it on a global scale. However, while it is well established in developed countries, e-commerce is still at an early stage in emerging markets, hence there is a need to unveil which factors contributes to its adoption. The main objective of this study is to integrate the theory of planned behavior, the theory of reasoned action, and the technology acceptance model using a Bayesian approach to determine the key predictors of online purchase intention among internet users in Colombia. The results demonstrate the pertinence of the theory of reasoned action and technology acceptance model, models to explain online purchase intention, confirming that the intention to purchase online is mostly determined by the attitudes to e-commerce which, in turn, are explained by perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, and the subjective norm related to online shopping. © 2017 Universidad de Talca-Chile.

The purpose of this paper is to study if there is a Granger causality relationship between the price of oil and the prices of the stocks that compose the Integrated Latin American Market (MILA) index. Our analysis found that from the perspective of the efficient market hypothesis, there is no empirical evidence that there is a Granger causality relationship between the price of oil and other commodities and the stocks that compose the MILA index. Therefore, it is possible to conclude that based on the evidence, it is not possible to create an arbitrage strategy based on the price of oil and copper to achieve abnormal returns in the MILA stock market. In order to test for the Granger causality between the underlying variables, we used a leveraged bootstrap test developed by Hatemi (2012). © 2015, Econjournals. All Rights Reserved.

Service quality is interesting field to evaluate the customer satisfaction of services offering by any service concern. This study has objective of to examine the rural consumer preference about the banking services in Dindigul District. This study focuses on the bank service quality levels through SERVPERF measuring scale (Croin, 1992) in rural market. The tool was applied with122 respondents from rural area in Dindigal District, Tamil Nadu. This research describe that The 22 indices variable Cronbach's Alpha co efficient (0.943), The Eigen value of 16 to .05 it not satisfy the expected level one. This study concludes that most of the private bank likes ICICI, Federal bank etc., project to entre rural market. Rural people have less knowledge about the banking services but they have enough knowledge in micro finance. © EuroJournals Publishing, Inc. 2012.
