    A partir dels estudis previs sobre l¿equilibri entre la vida familiar i laboral, es desenvolupa el present estudi sobre les relacions de l¿equilibri treball-família en la satisfacció i l¿estrès en una organització pública catalana. S¿utilitza una mostra diversa de 123 treballadors, la qual inclou treballadors de diversos departaments amb diferenciació de treballs i tasques. L¿estudi utilitza la tècnica multivariable dels models d¿equacions estructurals que realitza estimacions de relacions causals a partir de dades estadístiques, les quals expressen el grau en què les dades s¿ajusten a un model proposat, confirmant la seva validesa. Els resultats dels models d¿equacions estructurals van demostrar que existeix una relació positiva entre l¿equilibri treball-família amb la satisfacció laboral i la satisfacció familiar, en canvi aquesta relació és negativa quan es tracta de l¿estrès. A més a més, els models d¿equacions confirmen que existeix una correlació negativa entre la satisfacció laboral i l¿estrès. Aquest estudi també confirma que l¿equilibri treball-vida és un bon predictor sobre la satisfacció laboral.

    This study investigates work-life balance and its outcomes across collectivistic (Malaysia, China, and New Zealand Maori) and individualistic (Spain, France, Italy and New Zealand European) cultures. Using a sample of 1416 employees, SEM analysis showed that work-life balance was positively related to job and life satisfaction and negatively related to anxiety and depression across collectivistic and individualistic cultures. Respondents from collectivistic cultures reported lower levels of satisfaction compared to respondents from individualistic cultures. Overall, we find strong support for work-life balance being beneficial for employees from various cultures.

    Dynamic capabilities are increasingly being used to explain how firms leverage their resource base over varying levels of market dynamism. Yet little attention is given to how the internal dynamism of the firm might affect capability development. Firms are often faced with the challenge of establishing ways to engage in goal directed action that calls upon routinized, path dependent activity as well as the exploration of new opportunities, at times when there is inner turbulence. Using an in-depth case study (2007 to 2012) on the airline Spanair, we ask the following question: How can a firm leverage its dynamic capabilities to bring about deep purposeful change? In our findings we identify a circular rather than hierarchical capability pattern with four dynamic capabilities, adding, transferring, integrating and shedding, and two higher order capabilities, goal development and orchestration. We contribute to the literature by demonstrating, how a link between the goal development capability of senior directors and the change orchestration capability, create a goal directed path. We also explain how the link between the high order and dynamic capabilities develops an important bridge between path dependence and path creation. We then demonstrate how goal adjustment occurs in a circular manner to create a link between the four dynamic capabilities and the goal development capability. Furthermore, we demonstrate how the goal development and change orchestration capabilities jointly enable a firm¿s transformation, particularly in times of heightened internal and external environmental turbulence.

    In this paper we investigate organizational forgetting, the notion that a firm’s knowledge does not persist over time, exploring knowledge depreciation caused by changes in human capital. We first conduct an in-depth exploratory case study to identify organizational forgetting. The empirical evidence suggests that organizational forgetting occurs when abrupt personnel turnover takes place. The data reveal a forgetting pattern that is entirely episodic in nature. Thereupon we conduct a confirmatory piece, using multiple regression models, to measure the impact of organizational forgetting on overall productivity. We find that, as a result of repeated forgetting processes, productivity falls in spite of continued output accumulation because of changes in the characteristics of the resource where experience resides

    Dynamic capabilities are increasingly being used to explain how firms leverage their resource base over varying levels of market dynamism yet numerous questions remain. One dilemma surrounds how firms might engage in routinized, path dependent activities while simultaneously exploring new opportunities. Another question surrounds the strategic role required of key firm decision makers in bringing about differential performance. Using an in-depth case study (2007 to 2012) on the airline Spanair, we ask the following question: How can a firm leverage its resource base to bring about deep purposeful change? In our findings we identify a hierarchical framework with two first order dynamic capabilities, goal directing and renewing, and one second order capability, transforming. We contribute to the literature by demonstrating, how a link between the goal directing capability of senior directors and the transforming capability, create a strategic goal directed path used to guide and monitor performance. We also explain how the link between the goal directing and renewing capabilities develops an important bridge between path dependency and path creation in dynamic capabilities. With our renewing dynamic capability (adding, integrating, transferring, and shedding of resources) we show how the systematic use of internal as well as external resources can bring about deep change. Furthermore, we demonstrate how the goal directing and renewing capabilities jointly enable transformative growth, particularly in times of heightened internal and external environmental turbulence.

    There are many papers that present the problems of educational videos: need of a high number of resources to create them, excess of information in the majority of videos, gaps of information between videos and the rest of materials of the courses, etc. This paper introduces the concept ‘low-cost educational video’, which attempts to solve to a large extent the problems that have been identified in the educational videos. To this end, an empirical research is conducted with 487 students and various lecturers and professors in three undergraduate degrees: Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Management (in face-to-face as well as semi-distance modalities), and Aeronautical Engineering at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain). In order to achieve this goal, we introduce the process and the required resources for the creation and the diffusion of these low-cost educational videos. The results are analysed taking a literature-based questionnaire as a starting point and within the principles of good practice in higher education framework. The main research findings revealed an improved student motivation and an increase of the perceived efficiency in the learning and teaching processes, without substantially raising costs.

    En esta investigación exploramos el olvido organizativo, la idea de que el conocimiento de una organización puede depreciarse por la pérdida de capital humano. Para ello se ha desarrollado un múltiple estudio de casos en profundidad por medio del uso de series temporales interrumpidas. La evidencia empírica parece sugerir que el olvido organizativo tiene lugar cuando se da rotación de personal. Los resultados confirman la posibilidad de descensos de productividad a pesar del crecimiento continuo de producción acumulada, si ocurren cambios en las características de los recursos donde reside la experiencia.

    The main objective of this research is to contribute to innovation capability understanding. Furthermore, it is mainly focused in the way innovation capability is built and developed. Based on a multiple case study and interviews with managers, who are responsible for the new product development projects, in two innovative technology- based companies (ITBC) in the broadcasting sector, a collection of practices are identified and classified in four dimensions: 1) Innovation strategy, 2) Human capital development, 3) Organizational structure, and 4) Organizational culture. The case analysis revealed that a collection of practices that promote successful results in the new product development projects are critical both to improve and to build innovation capability

    Purpose – To determine the impact of organizational forgetting on knowledge-intensive firms and the circumstances in which the loss of distinctive knowledge takes place. Design/methodology/approach – The empirical research consisted of a qualitative proposal based on two case studies in Higher ducation involving situations of organizational forgetting. Findings – A framework for conceptualising organizational forgetting. Moreover, the results of the case study analysis include a categorization of organizational forgetting and a set of propositions about their causes. Originality/value – Scientific research on knowledge management has focused on the processes of knowledge creation, use and transfer, but has devoted little attention to the processes of knowledge degradation and destruction.

    This paper compiles and unifies the literature about turnover, organizational unlearning and especially, organizational forgetting. From this departure, the researchers propose a pilot study: An inductive research in order to identify the factors that affect organizational forgetting. To achieve this goal, the researchers have carried out a literature review of the topic in depth and an empirical study based on the analysis of a set of interviews in the field of university education, more specifically, in a whole university department. This paper presents the methodology, the results and the conclusions of this pilot study. The final objective of this research is to present a framework about the factors that influence organizational forgetting when turnover takes place.

    En aquest treball s’exposen els resultats de la utilització de vídeos docents de baix cost, orientats a complementar la docència presencial i semi-presencial a Enginyeria Industrial, Enginyeria d'Organització Industrial i Enginyeria Aeronàutica a l’ETSEIAT. L’alta velocitat d’accés i la possibilitat de creació de xarxes de coneixement on tots els actors poden participar activament, són avantatges del video stream (Fiil & Ottewill, 2006; Michelinch, 2002) i de la Web 2.0, que s’han aprofitat per desenvolupar metodologies d’ús de vídeos docents que es poguessin inserir a la pròpia plataforma docent ATENEA (Moodle), combinats amb d’altres recursos, com text, imatges i qüestionaris.

    Tomando la teoría de las capacidades dinámicas y el desarrollo de un estudio de casos exploratorio en tres empresas de base tecnológica del sector audiovisual, esta investigación concluye que la capacidad de innovación es el resultado de la combinación de tres procesos organizacionales: la absorción de conocimiento, la integración de conocimiento y la reconfiguración de conocimiento. Los resultados del estudio de casos muestran que estos tres procesos están compuestos por un conjunto de actividades fundamentadas en la combinación de cuatro recursos organizacionales: personas, recursos físicos, estructuras y sistemas, y cultura organizacional
