  • Recent years, a smartphone has been playing a role of searching, booking, and decision-makings in the tourism industry through tourists' user experiences and engagements. This study investigated the tourists' behavior toward smartphone usage regarding Chinese visitors who were ranked in Korea inbound tourism. This research model formulated two types of usage which identified explorlative use and exploitive use and the antecedent relationships of user empowerment including user competence, user impact, usage meaning, user trust. We analyzed SmartPLS2.0 for the hypotheses and found that first, user competence has a positive influence both of exploitative use and explorative use, second, user impact has a positive influence on exploitative use, but has not influenced on explorative use, third, usage meaning has not influence on exploitive use, but has a postitive influence on explorative use, and finally user trust has influence on both of exploitive and explorative use. Based on the results we found, we suggested Chinese tourists' smartphone usages' behaviors and theoretical and practical implications.

  • Smart phones play a significant part in the evolution IT industry. In domestic market, smart phones have grown rapidly. However, until today, precedent studies on smart phones, particularly about the reason why consumers use smart phones are uncommon. Thus, in this study we adopted IS continuance and habit theory to study smart phones' use behavior. The results reveal that perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use, satisfaction of smart phone usage, continuous use, and habit showed the causes and effects relationships. The results indicated that perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use had a positive effect on smart phone user satisfaction. Moreover, smart phone user satisfaction had a positive effect on the smart phone habits and explorative use. However, smart phone user satisfaction showed insignificant effect toward exploitive use. That is, satisfied users regularly use the smart phone but need to formulate habit of use, and then influence exploitive use. Habit showed a positive effect on both exploitive use and explorative use, Finally, we found that users are likely to pay more attention on new features of smart phones while they are using the devices.

  • Intermediaries are presenting not only transactional information that orchestrates electronic transaction, but also market related information and knowledge useful for sellers' understanding of the market status. However, we do not have strong evidence that the market related information and knowledge is properly utilized by sellers and that it has an actual influence on sellers' performance. According to the research result, absorptive capacity and the pattern of information system utilization is statistically significant to sellers' performance mediated by operational efficiency and market knowledge creation. Especially, explorative utilization of information system and realized absorptive capacity has a stronger influence on sellers' performance mediated by market knowledge creation. With this research result, this study maintains that sellers are required to absorb and utilize market related information and knowledge more actively through explorative utilization of information system to achieve better performance in the e-marketplace. On the other hand, intermediaries are recommended to provide abundant and valuable market related information and knowledge for the sellers to build up better e-marketplaces.

  • Recently, creative innovation has become a major topic in management innovation and due to this, various researches on its need and methodologies are being performed. According to previous studies on ambidexterity, explorative innovation is closer to divergent and right-sided brain, while exploitative innovation is closer to convergent and left-sided brain. Five attributes of the questionnaires were developed based on right-sided and left-sided brain theory. Also, 25 problem solving tools were selected according to previous studies. QC 7 Tools and new QC 7 Tools were frequently used in Six Sigma projects. Other 11 problem solving tools were selected with consideration on its usage frequency. Survey questionnaires were distributed to 25 Six Sigma consultants and 22 were retrieved for this study's use. As a result, 14 tools were identified to hold exploitative attribute while 11 tools were identified to hold explorative attributes.

  • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is an important part of interorganizational electronic commerce due to the strategic impact derived from its use. In order to ensure successful implementation of EDI, EDI controls must first be developed. Because they are implemented in an environmental context, the characteristics of organizational environments have a significant impact on EDI controls. The control strategy for the EDI system - formal, informal, and automated controls - should fit certain organizational environments. A research model has been developed to depict the moderating effects of six environmental variables including industry, organizational, and task characteristics on the relationships between controls and implementation. It is shown empirically that the relationships between EDI controls and implementation are indeed affected by these factors. The results can help management design formal, informal, and automated controls in view of their own environmental contexts.

  • This paper is structured into three main parts and a conclusion. The main section provide definitions of efficiency, effectiveness and performance in terms of the distribution channel, followed by a review of related performance measurement, before discussing difficulties of measurement. According to the theoretical approach, it appears that key theroretical issues are centered around customer service, logistics excellence, time compression, the use of IT, and a move towards integrated logistics. The empirical approach shows that in the past, various financial performance indicators were regarded as relevant management information. However, today, management needs additional performance indicators. Therefore, external assessments of effectiveness must be performed to measure customers' satisfaction with the physical flow of product through the distribution channel network. So, what is needed is to take previous normative and explorative research and progress through a framework by developing valid measures of distribution channel's effectiveness and efficiency, and identifying research methodologies suited to the data collection requirements.

  • This study tried to find the source of the success of on-line game sites and the way how the absorption and the satisfaction would have the relationship with the intention-to-use of on-line game sites. The primary purpose of this study is to establish the empirical model on the determinants of on-line game sites. The research model of this study will have insights which are trigger to the higher dimensions on the model and to the importance of the evaluation criterions of game sites. The suggestions of the study are as follows. First, the precedent factors of research model were tested for the commonality with explorative factor analysis and then tried the confirmative factor analysis. Thus, the determinants in this model will be used for further study without an evaluation. Second, the factors which have a most significant effect on the mediating factor like the absorption are a skill of user and an activity of community. Furthermore, the information quality of game sites was most significant in the satisfaction of user. Third, the most factors which included in the research model were significant to intention-to-use, however, the system quality did negatively significant.
