The long shadow of fatalism : a philosophical speculation on Forster’s “the Machine Stops” (1909) on the disintegration of technologically sdvanced societies back then and today

Seele, Peter

In: Philosophy of Management, 2021, no. 20, p. 431–439

EM Forster’s short story “The Machine Stops” from 1909 is widely reread and discussed again for some ten years as it portrays a science- fiction world resting on similar technological advancements as today in the digital era. Also management literature reviewed the short story with regard to centralized decision making, rationality and totalitarianism. I argue instead, that the main theme...

Disentangling individual phases in the hunted vs. farmed meat supply chain : exploring hunters’ perceptions in Italy

Marescotti, Maria Elena ; Demartini, Eugenio ; Gibbert, Michael ; Viganò, Roberto ; Gaviglio, Anna

In: Foods, 2021, vol. 10, no. 1, p. 15 p

The growing body of literature concerning the hunted wild game meat (HWGM) supply chain is mainly focused on the final consumer, while little is known about upstream production processes. Even though the hunter plays a central role here, it is not well understood how hunters themselves perceive their role in the various phases of the production process. The present study explores Italian...

A Hierarchical Framework of New Products Development : an Example from Biotechnology

Alexandre, Maria Tereza ; Furrer, Olivier ; Sudharshan, D.

In: European Journal of Innovation Management, 2003, vol. 6, no. 1, p. 48-63

Many new products are based on new technologies, which may in turn be based on new scientific discoveries. The extant literature on new product development has focused on how a firm may successfully commercialize new products. There is a corporate cost associated with new product failure, which extends beyond the final product-manufacturing corporation to all the parties involved in the...

Exploring, understanding, and promoting pluralistic strategies for (qualitative) research

Hoorani, Bareerah Hafeez ; Gibbert, Michael (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2021 ; 2021COM004.

There have been growing calls in the field of management for pluralistic research, primarily because it allows for scientific discovery and advancement. However, despite these calls, the field of management is still homogenous in its research approaches and practices. This motivates the aim of this thesis, which is to explore, understand and promote pluralistic (qualitative) research. The...

Enhancing scientific communication skills: a real-world simulation in a tertiary-level life science class using e-learning technology in biomedical literature perception, reflective review writing on a clinical issue, and self and peer assessments

Eppler, Elisabeth ; Meyer, Jan ; Serowy, Steffen ; Link, Karl ; Pauk, Barbara ; Filgueira, Luis

In: Research in Science Education, 2018, p. -

This educational study aimed to explore the feasibility and acceptance of a literacy exercise adopted from the realworld of scientific publishing in a cell and tissue biology course. For that purpose, a tertiary-level multimodality science course, which integrated a blended learning faculty and student lectures, journal club, and wet laboratory sessions including a research project as well as...
