New Service Screening Committee Performance: The Roles of Transformational Leadership and Absorptive Capacity

El Profesor Eduardo Torres, Director del Departamento de Administración y Negocios de la Facultad de Economía y Negocios de la Universidad de Chile, los invita a participar de nuestro ciclo mensual de Seminarios. En esta oportunidad el tema a conversar estará enfocado en "New Service Screening Committee Performance: The Roles of Transformational Leadership and Absorptive Capacity" y lo dictará Serdar S. Durmusoglu.

Este Seminario se llevará a cabo el día miércoles 1 de julio 2016.

Les comparto un resumen de las principales ideas del Seminario de Serdar:

"Screening committees address technological, market, and competitive dynamics by identifying, selecting, and allocating resources to the most promising innovation projects they are presented with. Performance of such committees is negatively affected by clashing views and conflicts of interest between members, the complexity of the task, and the high level of uncertainty regarding the dynamics of the competitive environment, technology, and customer requirements, as well as the uncertain outcomes of the proposed innovation projects. Applying a micro-foundations perspective, we hypothesize positive effects of transformational leadership and committee-level absorptive capacity (ACAP) on screening performance. Using data pertaining to 123 screening decisions, we empirically investigate the relationships. ACAP is conceptualized in two dimensions: the screening committee's capability to value, recognize and assimilate new information (i.e., potential absorptive capacity: PACAP) and the committee’s ability to adapt their decision-making tools and procedures to the situation (i.e., realized absorptive capacity: RACAP). The results show that the effects of transformational leadership on screening performance are fully mediated by ACAP, while the effects of PACAP are fully mediated by RACAP. Based on these findings we make actionable suggestions as to how to further improve the innovation screening processes in firms".
