Abstract: In the competitive market, virtual teams represent a growing response to the need
for fasting time-to-market, low-cost and rapid solutions to complex organizational problems.
Virtual teams enable organizations to pool the talents and expertise of employees and non-
employees by eliminating time and space barriers. Nowadays, companies are heavily
investing in virtual team to enhance their performance and competitiveness. Despite virtual
teams growing prevalence, relatively little is known about this new form of team. Hence ...

Abstract

In
today’s dynamic marketplace, manufacturing companies are under strong
pressure to introduce new products for long-term survival with their
competitors. Nevertheless, every company cannot cope up progressively or
immediately with the market requirements due to knowledge dynamics
being experienced in the competitive milieu. Increased competition and
reduced product life cycles put force upon companies to develop new
products faster. In response to these pressing needs, there should be
some new approach compatible in flexible circumstances. This paper
presents a solution based on the popular Stage-Gate system, which is
closely linked with virtual team approach. Virtual teams can provide a
platform to advance the knowledge-base in a company and thus to reduce
time-to-market. This article introduces conceptual product development
architecture under a virtual team umbrella. The paper describes all the
major aspects of new product development (NPD), NPD process and its
relationship with virtual teams, Stage-Gate system finally presents a
modified Stage-Gate system to cope up with the changing needs. It also
provides the guidelines for the successful implementation of virtual
teams in new product development.

Visibility And Citation Impact 33984 120606 1 PB - Nader Ale Ebrahim
The
number of publications is the first criteria for assessing a researcher
output. However, the main measurement for author productivity is the
number of citations, and citations are typically related to the paper's
visibility. In this paper, the relationship between article visibility
and the number of citations is investigated. A case study of two
researchers who are using publication marketing tools confirmed that the
article visibility will greatly improve the citation impact...

Abstract

Publishing
a high quality paper in scientific journals is a halfway of receiving
citation in the future. The rest of the way is advertising and
disseminating the publications by using the proper “Research Tools”.
Familiarity with the tools allows the researcher to increase his/her
h-index in the short time. H-index shows the academicians influences in
the specified field of research. Therefore, a person with higher level
of h-index has more high quality publications with high amount of
citations. This presentation, covers the following topics: Why publish
and increase h-index?, Definition of h-index and g-index, Importance of
h-index, How to use “Research Tools” Mind Map, Paper title preparation,
Selecting keywords, Select the proper journal, Advertise published
article, and finally Trace published article citation.

Abstract

The
aim of this paper is to extend the knowledge about virtual teams and
above all to stress the differences between face-to-face and virtual
teams as well as to define its chosen success factors. This paper is
based on an extended literature review of virtual teams. The author
describes virtual teams, reasons for their implementation and four
factors that are prerequisites for team success.

The first finding
is that the successful introduction of a virtual team and its
management requires knowledge about the special characteristics of this
team and the effective handling of challenges. Second, the literature
review of virtual teams reveals a lack of research on the differences in
motivation between face-to-face and virtual teams. The originality of
the article is ensured by selection of the most important factors which,
according to the literature review, lead to the success of virtual
teams and by a description of areas that need to be explored in the
future.
