Is Loyalty+Habit Better? Exploring the Interference Between Loyalty and Habit

An ILSM-CERMA seminar, co-organized with CCMS and UNamur, by Prof. Yuping Liu, Old Dominion University

December 16,2016 from 9:30 to 12:00 in Doyen 21, Louvain-la-Neuve and Room number 2 (bât. A, 3rd floor) in Mons.

Speaker : Prof. Yuping Liu , Old Dominion University

Title: Is Loyalty+Habit Better? Exploring the Interference Between Loyalty and Habit

Date: 16 December at 9:30

Room : Doyens 21, Louvain-la-Neuve and Room nber 2 (bât. A, 3rd floor) in Mons

Abstract:

When shoppers repeatedly buy from a business, it is often driven by two very distinct forces: loyalty and habit. While loyalty refers to a deeply held, enduring commitment to rebuy from a business, habit reflects a behavioral disposition in which past responses are triggered directly by associated contextual cues. Few existing studies have examined loyalty and habit simultaneously, although both of these two forces can exert an influence on a shopper’s repeat buying decisions. One particularly important question missing from the literature is how loyalty and habit may interact with each other. In other words, when both loyalty and habit are present, what is the combined outcome of these forces? Do the two effects add up and reinforce each other, or is the mechanism more complicated? We conducted four empirical studies to answer these questions and to explore the possible interaction patterns between loyalty and habit. Our results showed consistent interference between loyalty and habit over a variety of consumer responses, including reaction to brand-related marketing offers, resistance to alternatives in a stock-out situation, and tendency to engage in word-of-mouth.

Perspective historique sur l'évolution de l'objet et de l'enseignement de la GRH au sein du champ des relations indutrielles au Québec : du complémentaire au supplémentaire

Séminaire de recherche par le Pr. Yves Hallée de l'Université Laval au Québec, ce 7 décembre à 12h50, salle Vaes 052.

Orateur : Pr Yves Hallée, Université Laval, Québec

Titre : Perspective historique sur l’évolution de l’objet et l’enseignement de la GRH au sein du champ des relations industrielles au Québec : du complémentaire au supplémentaire

Langue : français

Date : 7 décembre 2016 à 12h50

Salle : Vaes 052, bâtiment Doyens (entrée par la Place Rabelais)

Résumé :

Dans ce séminaire, nous discuterons de la gestion des ressources humaines au Québec en traçant un portrait de de l’évolution du champ académique, indissociable de l’évolution de l’objet en Amérique du Nord et au Québec depuis la révolution industrielle. Conséquemment, nous revenons sur l’évolution des conceptions de la GRH en Amérique du Nord ainsi que leurs cheminements au sein des écoles en relations industrielles. Nous montrons qu’un décrochage a eu lieu au détour des années 60 et que, malgré la volonté affichée par plusieurs chercheurs durant les années 80 de vouloir enraciner à nouveau la GRH dans le paradigme pluraliste des origines, cette transition semble difficile compte tenu de l’opposition de certains auteurs en relations industrielles et du processus d’auto-exclusion qui s’opère par la poursuite de ses seules visées prescriptives.
Ensuite, au départ du cas particulier du Québec, nous mettons en exergue plusieurs phénomènes structurants qui ont participé au déracinement évoqué supra. Nous terminons notre proposition en suggérant un réinvestissement des fondements de la GRH dans l’enseignement en vue de nous éloigner de l’hégémonie des conceptions normatives et prescriptives qui, selon nous et en accord avec les perspectives critiques des études sur le travail et l’emploi, participent à la réémergence du conflit socio-économique et à la disparition du sens du travail.

Résumé

La présentation vise à décrire une démarche de valorisation des résultats d'une recherche sur le management de l’innovation, obtenus dans le cadre d’une approche constructiviste : construction de résultats de recherche en réponse à une demande de terrain, modélisation, retour vers la théorie pour définir une question de recherche puis effectuer une revue de la littérature ciblée et, enfin, réponse à la question de recherche en discutant le modèle obtenu sur le terrain.
Est pris, pour illustrer cette démarche, le cas d’une recherche conduite pendant plus de dix ans avec des cadres de direction d’une entreprise de taille intermédiaire opérant dans l’industrie aéronautique. A ainsi été co-construit un modèle novateur d’organisation de la R&D et de l’innovation, ancré sur les théories des organisations et la stratégie. Deux articles différents ont été présentés à des conférences internationales en 2015-2016 et sont en cours d’amélioration pour soumission à des revues académiques.

From "Push Out" to "Pull In" Together: An Analysis of Social Entrepreneurship

An ILSM-CRECIS seminar by Rocío Aliaga-Isla from HEC Liège

November 15, 2016 at 1:30PM in Doyens 22

Speaker : Rocío Aliaga-Isla, HEC Liège

Title : From “Push Out” to “Pull In” Together: An Analysis of Social Entrepreneurship
Readers : Amélie Jacquemin and Ann Verbeke

Date : November 15, 2016 at 01:30 PM
Room : Doyens 22, Place des Doyens 1, 1348 Louvain-la-Neuve

Abstract :
Definitions are important! They are composed of words that express what people think. Despite
numerous efforts to bring about a clear and unbiased definition of social entrepreneurship, there
is still confusion as how social entrepreneurship should be defined. The objective of this paper
is not to state a novel definition, this means not to "push out", but rather to "pull in" together
in order to better understand what the scholars are talking about through their own social
entrepreneurship (SE) definitions. In doing so, we contribute to the literature on social
entrepreneurship by synthesizing and analyzing the social entrepreneurship definitions to better
understand the field. To do so, a combination of methods was used: systematic review to reach
the articles proposing definitions and memetic analysis to understand the content of the
definitions by analyzing their memes. From the analysis, three main categories that cluster
memes by their similar semantic space were considered: entity types, entrepreneurial
opportunities and intentions/promises. Results confirm the lack of consistent meaning of the
categories under study as well as the fragmentation and the controversial character of the SE
field. From the analysis of memes, some stylized facts and propositions are made for
contributing to the advancement and understanding of the SE literature.
Keywords: social entrepreneurship, definitions, memes, systematic review

« ‘That’s embarrassing!’ Effects of brand anthropomorphism on intimate disclosure » by Anaïs Gretry
co-authored with Horváth Csilla and Belei Nina (Institute for Management Research, Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands)

Abstract:
We investigate how brand anthropomorphism impacts consumers’ propensity to disclose intimate information to brands. The results of three experiments provide converging evidence that anthropomorphizing a brand has a detrimental effect on consumer disclosure of intimate information. This negative effect stems from the perception that an anthropomorphized brand is mindful and capable of evaluating others, which increases the level of embarrassment that consumers experience when revealing intimate information. However, we show that indirect questioning mitigates the detrimental effect of brand anthropomorphization on intimate self-disclosure by reducing the embarrassment felt by consumers. Our results have important implications for marketers pursuing anthropomorphization as a tool to foster consumer-brand relationships.

« How do nutrition claims influence consumers' perception and attraction for food products » by Maartje Mulders
co-authored with Horváth Csilla and Belei Nina (Institute for Management Research, Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands)

Abstract:
Nutrition claims have been used in order to highlight the particular benefits of a food product. However, such claims are most common on processed products. Two studies investigated how consumers respond towards nutrition claims on fresh and processed vegetables, and if different claims have different effects. Study 1 (n= 305) investigated whether consumers would be more likely to choose a bag of fresh vegetables that was marked by the claim of ‘fiber’ vs. that of ‘colic nutriments’. Study 2 (n=200) investigated the claims ‘fiber’ vs. ‘inulin’ on choice for fresh (i.e., tomato) and processed (i.e., tomato-based pasta sauce) food products. Three research questions were addressed: 1. Are consumers more likely to choose a product with a claim vs. one with no claim? 2. Are they more likely to choose a product with a familiar claim vs. a novel claim? and 3. Do the first two types of choices differ for fresh vs. processed products? Results of these 2 studies will be discussed, as well as the implication for consumer research.

Bio:
Maartje did her Bachelor and Master degree in the Netherlands, at the University of Maastricht. She completed her bachelor degree at University College Maastricht, where she first got interested in psychology, and after 3 years graduated with a focus on Microbiology and Psychology. After her bachelor, she did a Research Master in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience, in the psychopathology track. During this master, she did her internship in Oregon (USA), where she researched how the brain's reward system responds to food cues (fMRI research), as well as possible hormonal influences for women on food consumption. Her interest for food, and food research, led her to Belgium, where she now does a Ph.D. at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, with the Food4Gut team. The Food4Gut project is an innovative and interdisciplinary research group, aiming to find means to help combat the obesity crisis. They investigate how the old and forgotten vegetables that contain a specific type of fibers, affect humans' digestion and well-being. In this group, Maartje researches the food marketing side of things, and how people understand nutrition claims and how this impacts their food choice, from a psychological perspective.

oscarUsing Conceptual Model Technologies for Understanding the Human Genome: From an “Homo Sapiens” to an “Homo Genius”

by Prof. Oscar Pastor,

Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain
                      Peter Chen 2016 Award

Wednesday, 12th October 2016 at 4:30
Room Doyens 32 (Place des Doyens, 1 – 1348 Louvain-la-Neuve)

 

The conference will be introduced by Prof. Jean Vanderdonckt (ILSM & ICTeam)
Free Access

Everybody accepts that understanding the Human Genome is a big challenge for the humanity. It will take at the very least decades to achieve such a goal reasonably well. But new advances that are showing promising results come continuously. Day after day new data are is provided and new information is derived from them. As DNA sequencing technologies improve and evolve, it is an evidence that the rate of data generation at a local level is increasing dramatically. In this scenario, assuring the interoperability and consistence of data at the global level becomes both a challenge and a need. To face these problems adequately, the most advanced Information Systems design technologies are strongly required, to cover the needs of better data capture, organization and storage, improved data analysis and interoperability, and more efficient data standardization with the support of foundational ontologies. This principle is in the “Genome” of this keynote. Using Advanced Conceptual Model and Data Technologies, there is an opportunity to understand the secrets of life that the Genome Code hides. More and more data that relate genotype and phenotype are available, with especially attractive clinical applications. These ideas will be approached in the keynote, showing that the challenge of understanding the human genome can suppose a conceptual revolution: understanding the genome could allow to improve human being features, something never before in the hand of we, humans. This the idea of the title: Homo Sapiens becoming Homo Genius being able to understand and manage the principles of life, and subsequently improve then. ,

L’UCL a le plaisir de s’associer à l’EM Normandie, HEC Paris et l’ESG UQAM dans l’organisation des 6èmes Journées Georges Doriot. Cette édition aura lieu sur le site montois de la Louvain School of Management les 19 et 20 mai 2016. Ce sont les professeurs de l’UCL Amélie Jacquemin et Frank Janssen qui co-président le Comité scientifique de l’édition 2016 de cette conférence internationale.

A l’occasion de cette conférence, cinquante chercheurs internationaux (Belgique, France, Canada, Afrique du Nord et du Centre, Suisse) présenteront et discuteront pas moins de 37 communications scientifiques sur les approches critiques en entrepreneuriat. Il s’agit de déconstruire un ensemble de discours autour de l’entrepreneuriat considérés comme allant de soi, appréhendant différemment les processus entrepreneuriaux et approfondissant l’étude de différentes formes « d’entreprendre autrement ».

La sélection des meilleures communications sera acheminée vers une revue scientifique pour publication : la Revue de l’Entrepreneuriat.

Par ailleurs, le prix HEC-Bruno Roux de Bezieux sera décerné à l’une ou plusieurs contributions remarquables de ces Journées Georges Doriot.

Pour clore cet évènement, les Prof. Chris Steyaert de l’Université de St Gallen et Christophe Schmitt de l’Université de Lorraine partageront leurs réflexions d’experts sur les approches critiques en entrepreneuriat.

Nul doute que cet évènement sera une belle occasion de faire connaître la Louvain School of Management, et plus largement l’UCL, à ces chercheurs étrangers actifs dans le domaine de l’entrepreneuriat et de l’innovation.

The 4-day intensive course will be taught by Jens Christensen (Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco) at the National Bank of Belgium, in Brussels. The course will cover the most recent literature on how to model the term structure of bond yields including the challenges posed by the asymmetric behavior of yields near their lower bound.

CEMS PhD course 

Term Structure Models and the Zero Lower Bound 

Jens Christensen (Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco) 

April 04-07, 2016 at the National Bank of Belgium, Brussels

 

Course title: Term Structure Models and the Zero Lower Bound

The course will cover the most recent literature on how to model the term structure of bond yields including the challenges posed by the asymmetric behavior of yields near their lower bound. Jens Christensen is a leading expert in interest rate term structure modeling and his research has been widely published in leading academic journals such as the Economic Journal, the Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, the Journal of Econometrics, the Journal of Financial Econometrics, Journal of Monetary Economics, and the Journal of Money, Credit, and Banking amongst others. Jens Christensen is a research advisor in the Economic Research Department of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, which he joined in 2006 after receiving his PhD in finance from Copenhagen Business School. He also holds an MSc in economics from the University of Copenhagen.

Part I: Term Structure Modeling in Normal Times

In the first part of the course, we first introduce the canonical affine term structure models as outlined by Dai and Singleton (2000) with particular focus on the canonical Gaussian models whose estimation is discussed in Joslin, Singleton, and Zhu (2011) and Hamilton and Wu (2012). Second, we analyze the class of arbitrage-free Nelson-Siegel models introduced in Christensen, Diebold, and Rudebusch (2011) and its extension to allow for stochastic volatility provided in Christensen, Lopez, and Rudebusch (2014a). Third, we will discuss the estimation of these models based on the Kalman filter and issues related to finite-sample bias, see Bauer, Rudebusch, and Wu (2012) and Christensen, Lopez, and Rudebusch (2015b).

Part II: Term Structure Modeling and the Lower Bound Problem

In the second part of the course, we focus on the problems arising from the fact that the key policy rates of the world’s most prominent central banks have remained at or near their effective lower bounds for many years by now. We will study shadow-rate models and their estimation based on the extended Kalman filter in great detail since this is the leading solution to the lower bound problem. However, we will also analyze the novel stay-at-zero affine models developed by Monfort et al. (2015) and the linear-rational models introduced in Filipovic, Larsson, and Trolle (2014).

Part III: Term Structure Modeling and Applications to Policy Questions

In the third part of the course, it is demonstrated how term structure models can be used to analyze problems relevant to monetary policy. First, the analysis in Christensen and Rudebusch (2012) and Christensen and Krogstrup (2015) are described. Both studies look into how quantitative easing (QE) affects long-term interest rates. Understanding how QE works is likely to be useful for how to handle the exit from the unconventional policies. Second, we will stress test the Fed’s assets and income following Christensen, Lopez, and Rudebusch (2015a). In this case, the relevant policy questions are: What is the likelihood of large losses to the Fed’s securities portfolio? What is the chance of a halt to the remittances to the U.S. Treasury? This research emphasizes the potential costs of QE and can also be used to stress test commercial banks’ portfolios. Finally, we follow Christensen, Lopez, and Rudebusch (2010) and discuss a joint modeling of nominal and real yields in order to extract the inflation expectations embedded in Treasury yields.
