    Studying a Firm's Innovations as a Multi-Faceted (Interactive) Socio-Technical Process2015In: Review of Business Research, ISSN 1546-2609, E-ISSN 2378-9670, Vol. 15, no 3, p. 37-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to stimulate debate with regards to why firms will commit resources to innovate and the effects of the interactive nature of a firm’s innovation, as the firm engages in collaboration with several others to co-produce value. Methodologically, the study is a review of the existing literature on innovation, looking for an answer to the following. Why and how do a firm and some significant actors in its network engage in innovative activities to co-produce value? The study shows that, from a firm’s perspective, (1) a firm innovates in order to enhance its competitiveness and (2) a firm innovates because it enables it to achieve growth in an increasingly competitive environment.  A firm’s innovation should translate into value creation for some stakeholders. (3) Through innovations, a firm co-produces value, mostly, with others in its network. A firm’s internal capacity is complemented by external capacities of some actors in the firm’s network. © 2015 IABE. All Rights Reserved.

    Customers Satisfaction in Internet Banking: A Review (2008–2017)2019In: Proceedings of the 17th International Conference e-Society 2019: Utrecht, The Netherlands 11 - 13 April, 2019 / [ed] Piet Kommers, Pascal Ravesteijn, Guido Ongena & Pedro Isaías, Utrecht: IADIS Press, 2019, p. 3-13Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a systematic review of the literature of 44 research articles published customers’ satisfaction in Internet banking between (2008 and 2017). This review aims to address this gap in the literature by identifying the antecedents predicting customer satisfaction in Internet banking literature. Achieving our aims will bring together fragmented literature to serve as a foundation for research into customer satisfaction in Internet banking involving the use of Internet banking and other related digital platforms such as the mobile-banking. The results show that Asian countries recorded the highest number of publications. Also, we identified limited research from specific regions. For example, we could not identify any peer-reviewed articles from some of the European countries such as Sweden, The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Denmark, and Norway. Also, there are limited studies identified from the Middle East. And even countries that have  well-developed e-commerce systems from the Middle East and Africa such as Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Israel, and South Africa have no published papers. Secondly, the study identified SERVEQUAL & e-SERVEQUAL as the main theoretical framework. Third, the result shows that the main predictors of satisfaction in Internet banking are service quality, information quality, and product quality. Finally, this study confirmed the mediating role of customer satisfaction on customer loyalty toward those banks offering the Internet banking service. A comprehensive list of references is presented, along with an agenda for future research to cover the identified gaps.

    Barriers to Adoption of Mobile banking: Evidence from Ghana2013In: International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences, ISSN 2308-3816, E-ISSN 2222-6990, Vol. 3, no 7, p. 356-370Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this research is to investigate the perceived barriers to adoption of mobile banking among consumers, and to assess whether the usage of M-Banking is constraint on the basis of different demographic characteristics such as age, income level, mobile phone usage “experience” and marital status. Data were collected using convenient sampling via self-administered questionnaire in a large university in the Ashanti region of Ghana. A total of usable 189 responses were collected from non-users of mobile banking and retained for analysis using SPSS version 16. The main reasons for rejecting M-Banking were explored using simple descriptive analysis, while chi-square tests were used to assess differences between socio-demographic variables and the rejection factors. The result indicates that majority of respondents do not use any kind of mobile banking service. The four main reasons for rejecting M-Banking were: M-banking requires knowledge and learning; M-banking attract additional banking charges; poor telecommunication network; consumer preference for traditional means of banking instead of mobile enabled banking services. The practical implications of this research is the revealing of the main barriers to Mobile banking adoption and suggesting of appropriate marketing strategies to overcome the obstacles to mobile banking adoption.

    Digital Supply Chain: Survey of the Literature2018In: International Journal of Business Research and Management, ISSN 2180-2165, E-ISSN 2180-2165, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 47-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose- The aim of this research is to provide accumulated body of prior knowledge on digital supply chain (DSC) and provides opportunities for further research.

    Design/Methodology/approach-This study presents a literature review of 60 peer-reviewed articles from 2000-2017.

    Findings-Based on the analysis of the 60 articles, the paper finds that the main drivers of digital supply chain consist of technologies, digitization, integration, collaboration and coordination. The analysis reveals that the most dominant research method used was survey-type research (40.0 percent). The conclusion is that there is the need for researchers to employ qualitative case to empirically examine the development of DSC, this may lead to high level conceptualisation and theoretical development in the field of DSC. In addition, the analysis revealed that 73.3 percent of the articles failed to discuss any theoretical foundation. Thus, this review provides foundation for conceptualization and theory development in the field of digital supply chain.

    Originality/value-There has been some reviews of supply chain management in general; but there are little attempts scholars to synthesize extant literature on digital supply chain. Thus, the aim of this research is to provide accumulated body of prior knowledge of digital supply chain and provides opportunities for further research.

    Examining Innovation Capability In A Supply Chain Context2018In: International Journal of Business Research and Management, ISSN 2180-2165, E-ISSN 2180-2165, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 62-71Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The current competitive business environment demands that firms are able to integrate operational capabilities of their supply chain members in order to develop, produce and deliver offerings at low cost and high quality. In order to understand innovation capability in a supply chain context, this paper provides an in-depth analysis of ‘Comfort Audio’, a leading company in medical technology in Sweden, which show incredible ability to develop innovative solutions and medical products over the years. A single case study was adopted in this study, which enabled indepth analysis of the case company. Findings, highlight, innovation capability factors is made up of: idea management, interactive learning, collaboration and idea implementation. In addition, consultants were found to be one of the key supply chain members contributing to the firm’s innovation capability. The main theoretical contribution of the study is that innovation capability of a firm has been found to go beyond the internal capabilities that a focal firm owns or possesses, but rather through the access and utilisation of external actors’ resources and capabilities, as a result of exchange relationships with the supply chain members.

    Innovation Capability: A Systematic Review and Research Agenda2016In: Interdisciplinary Journal of Information, Knowledge, and Management, ISSN 1555-1229, E-ISSN 1555-1237, Vol. 11, p. 235-260Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Innovation capability is a growing and significant area of academic research. However, there is little attempt to provide a cumulative overview of this phenomenon. The purpose of this systematic review is to synthesize peer reviewed articles published in the area to develop a conceptual framework and to aid future research.

    Design/Methodology/Approach: The paper adopted a systematic review of literature on innovation capability. The final screening generated 51 articles from 30 journals from 2000-2015.

    Findings: The examination and synthesis of the theoretical and the empirical articles show that (1) the authors applied narrow range of conceptual and theoretical foundations; (2) innovation capability is being investigated mostly at the firm level for about 90% of the articles, and marginally about 5% at network (supply) chain level; (3) the authors define innovation capability in different ways and use diverse set of dimensions to measure innovation capability; (4) there is potential for future research across firms in innovation management disciplines.

    Practical implications: The review contributes to theory development in organizational capability literature in general. Managers wishing to innovate need to examine critically and integrate some of the innovation capability dimensions proposed in this paper.

    Originality: The review is unique in the sense that it provides conceptualisation of innovation capability framework.

    Innovation Capability and Product Innovation Performance: The case of low-tech manufacturing firms2016In: European Business Review, ISSN 0955-534X, E-ISSN 1758-7107Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - Despite the growing interest in innovation of low-tech herbal manufacturing industry from strategic and policy standpoints, little empirical research exists on their innovation capability. The purpose of this study is to explore innovation capability and its effect on product innovation performance of small low-tech herbal manufacturing firms. Design/methodology/approach - Innovation capability has been important to large firms in general and to some small firms in particular in order to address the issue of survival and profitability. A case study method is adopted to explore the process of innovation capability of low-tech manufacturing firms. Findings - Analysis of the two case studies reveals that collaborating with institutional actors, customers, suppliers and other competitors in interactive learning, coupled with idea management and idea implementation, has been factors that has influenced innovation capability and the case firms’ product innovation performance (i.e. profitability, market share, sales, return on assets, and return on investment). Research limitations/implications - First, in this study, we analysed two homogenous companies from the same geographical context. It could be fruitful to extend the scope to include firms in other geographical contexts and different industries, where the theoretical arguments advanced in this study can be tested further. Originality/Value - Although the research field of innovation capability is growing lately; few attempts have been made to explore innovation capability and its effect on product innovation performance of small low-tech herbal manufacturing firms.

    Innovation Capability within a Supply Chain Context2018Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A firm’s supply chain faces challenges relating to reducing operational cost while at the same time producing innovative products and services to meet consumers’ current and potential demand. One important phenomenon in the field of innovation research is the concept of innovation capability. The purpose of this thesis is to empirically explore innovation capability as a firm interacts with its supply chain members. In order to achieve the above stated purpose, the thesis attempted to answer the overarching research question: How does a focal firm’s interaction with its supply chain members affect its innovation capability?

    To answer the research question, a multiple method approach was adopted. This consists of two qualitative case studies, conceptual analysis, a quantitative study of a sample of 117 managers and systematic literature review (SLR). First; we used the systematic literature review (SLR) method to identify important innovation capability factors and theories applied in innovation capability studies. Second, multiple case studies were used to further investigate innovation capability in a supply chain context. Third, quantitative survey-method was used to explore innovation capability measures in the context of the supply chain.

    Five individual papers are presented in this thesis. The findings are summarised and presented in the cover (“kappa”) of the thesis. The findings revealed that focal firms’ innovation capability was influenced as a result of a focal firm’s interaction with its supply chain members. In addition, technological embeddedness influences innovation capability of the focal firms.

    Measurement of innovation capability in supply chain: an exploratory study2016In: International Journal of Innovation Science, ISSN 1757-2223, E-ISSN 1757-2231, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 331-349Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore the development of innovation capability construct measures in the context of supply chain and to objectively identify the key dimensions for stimulating focal firms' innovativeness.

    Design/methodology/approach -The scale items for this research were obtained from extant literature. The data were collected from homogenous sample of 117 Ghanaian middle level managers (respondents). Exploratory factor analysis was used to identify the main dimensions of innovation capability. Based on the statistical analysis, four dimensions were obtained - idea management, idea implementation, collaboration and learning -And the convergent validity, discriminant validity, nomological validity and reliability tests indicate that the scales are valid and reliable.

    Findings:Four dimensions (factors) of innovation capability were identified from the exploratory factor analysis. These dimensions were labelled as idea management, idea implementation, collaboration and learning. The results indicate that the integration of the dimensions of innovation capability may stimulate a focal firm's innovativeness.

    Research limitations/implications: First, the measurement scale might not capture all the important dimensions of innovation capability. Second, the judgmental sampling used in this study means that the result cannot be generalised to the entire supply chain population, third, the sample was drawn from one geographical location using non-probability sampling technique.

    Practical implications: The measures provide supply chain managers with a better approach of understanding the innovation capability in their supply chain. For instance, the measurement of supply chain's innovation capability should help supply chain managers to determine the important innovation areas that need attention most and to permit them to respond to challenges posed by any kind of innovation capability dimension that needs to be enhanced.

    Originality/value -The unique contribution of this paper is the development innovation capability measurement scale in the context of supply chain.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper was to examine the use of key activities of National Innovation System (NIS) and innovation capability of firms in promoting sustainable development. It addresses what institutional actors- government, universities/research institutions and private sector can do to generate key activities within NIS, which comprises of incubation activities, competence building, financing of innovation and consultancy services that may stimulates firm’s innovation capability. Exploratory research was used with the objective of examining insights from extant literature on innovation management, NIS and innovation capability and sustainable development.

    This study depicts that innovation capabilities may be influenced by key activities within NIS. It also shows that innovation capability dimensions such as strategy for innovation, idea management, idea implementation and creative self-efficacy may contribute to sustainable development. Furthermore, the best performing firms are classified as innovative and continually innovate in order to ensure sustainable development.

    The Role of Innovation Capability on Internationalisation of Low-Tech Manufacturing Firms2018Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this study is to explore innovation capability and its effect on internationalisation of small low-tech herbal manufacturing firms, thereby also contributing to theory development in the subject area. 

    Design/methodology/approach: A single case study method is adopted to explore the process of innovation capability of low-tech manufacturing for internationalisation process. 

    Findings: Our result indicates that in low-tech herbal manufacturing innovation capability has been crucial for the company’s internationalization. The uniqueness of the products is derived from mutual learning, collaboration, most importantly team work pertaining in the organisation. The findings in this study support the notion that the development of innovation capability in a natural resource-based sector could be pursued as a strategy for internationalisation in countries like Ghana. 

    Research limitations/implications: 

    In this study we attempted to examine low-tech manufacturing firms’ innovation capability and how it affects internationalisation. Our study, like any study, suffers from some limitations. First, the data is based on a single firm. Ideally we would like to include data from few more firms. However, getting data from innovative companies is a difficult task. Future research may consider multiple case studies within the same sector or across different sectors. 

    Originality/Value: Although the research field of innovation capability is growing lately, few attempts have been made to explore innovation capability and its effect on internationalisation process of low-tech manufacturing firms.

    Achieving supply chain agility through innovation capability building2016In: International Journal of Supply Chain and Operations Resilience, ISSN 2052-8698, Vol. 2, no 2, p. 114-143Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Few studies have examined the innovation capability perspective in the context of supply chain, and in particular toward achieving supply chain agility. The purpose of this study was to deepened our understanding of how a focal firm, in conjunction with customers, suppliers, and other supply chain members build innovation capability, leading to supply chain agility. Using qualitative case study approach, this paper explores how focal firms together with supply chain members build innovation capability, leading to supply chain agility. The study reveals that supply chain members play a critical role in influencing how a focal firms build their innovation capability to swiftly respond to increasing change in customers existing and potential need through agile supply chains. Drawing inspiration from theories of Resource-Based View of the firm and Dynamic Capability, this study contributes to growing streams of literature on innovation capability by explaining how supply chains build innovation capability, leading to supply chain agility. Building innovation capability in conjunction with supply chain members is crucial for achieving supply chain agility (e.g improved customer service, new product introduction, product customisation and international delivery capacity).

    Examining the relationships between e-Marketing adoption and Marketing Performance of Small and Medium Enterprises in Ghana2015In: Journal of Marketing and Consumer Research, ISSN 2422-8451, Vol. 10, p. 160-169Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Given the importance of the Internet in general and for the marketing function in particular there has been a growing focus on understanding the determinants of e-Marketing adoption within firms. The purpose of this study was to explore factors that influence adoption of e-Marketing by SMEs in Ghana, and to examine the relationship between e-Marketing adoption factors and marketing performance. Primary data was collected using a quantitative research approach from 107 SMEs. Exploratory factor analysis was employed to identify the main e-Marketing adoption factors: which consists of Perceived Usefulness (PU), Perceived Ease of Use (PEOU), External pressure and Strategic intent. The study revealed that all the four constructs significantly influence e-Marketing adoption among the SMEs, however factors identified in this study were found not to have significant impact on the SMEs marketing performance. An important implication of the study is that even though SMEs are using e-Marketing, the findings did show positive impact on SMEs marketing performance. A further study is needed to establish the relationship between e-Marketing adoption factors and marketing performance.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to investigate the perception of students on approaches to teaching, and how this is influenced by different dimensions of teaching and learning environments. A quantitative research approach was employed in this study. The questionnaire instruments were modelled on the revised version of the Enhanced Teaching and Learning Questionnaire (ETLQ) developed in United Kingdom. The data was gathered for the first time from 245 Organisational Behaviour students of the Kumasi Campus of University of Education, Winneba in May, 2015. Analysis of the data was done by using Maximum likelihood varimax rotation in factor analysis. The results indicate that approaches to learning may be represented by deep approach, surface. approach, feedback, assessment and support from students and staff. The findings of this study corroborate the applicability of the Enhanced Teaching and Learning (ETL) instruments in Ghana and has set the stage for further research in the area.

    Abstract [en]

    Public universities in Ghana are increasingly being urged annually by the National Council for Tertiary Education – a regulatory agency in Ghana – to publish their research outputs for national development. This paper examines research outputs from four public universities in Ghana that offer business programmes –Business, Management, and Accounting. The study sought to find out the number of publications made by lecturers in four universities from 1961 to 2017 and the types of method mostly used by business lecturers to conduct research.  Scopus Electronic Database was used to extract business articles published in four universities from 1961 to 2017. A total of 7,195 publications from four selected universities (University of Ghana (UG), University of Cape Coast (UCC), University of Education, Winneba (UEW) and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST)) were generated. Systematic literature review was used for the study.  Business education lecturers from of Cape Coast had the highest number of articles (100) in the Scopus database. Conversely, University of Education, Winneba had the lowest number of articles (16). It was realized that most business lecturers (71%) in the four universities preferred Quantitative research methodology. The paper urges policy makers in Ghanaian public universities to put equal premium on quantitative, qualitative and case study driven research, as a way of generating novelty in research findings.
