The South East Asian Journal of Management Aim and Scope The South East Asian Journal of Management (SEAM) aims to present the latest thinking and research that test, extends, or builds management theory and contributes to management practice. Contents of the Journal will be of interest to management teachers, student and researchers as well as to practicing managers and material will be analytical rather than descriptive. Whilst a major focus of the journal is on the Asian countries and management issues connected with it, increasingly, global concerns and conceptual topics will be covered. The Journal does not take a narrow view of business and management and will publish in other disciplines if they contribute significantly to problems considered by managers and researchers. To be published in SEAM, a manuscript must make strong empirical and theoretical contributions and highlight the significance of those contributions to the management field. Thus, preference is given to submissions that test, extend, or build strong theoretical frameworks while empirically examining issues with high importance for management theory and practice.

Abstract

Research Aims: The study was conducted to employ the capital flows mobilization (CFM) indicators as the leading economic indicators to determine the leadership role among the five original ASEAN countries. It sought to simplify and answer three research questions on the differences of CFM indicators among the ASEAN countries, their ranks, and how they were positioned in terms of CFM performance and Granger causality risk level. Design/methodology/approach: Nonparametric statistics and the economic game theory using a four-quadrant matrix were used to answer the three research questions. Research Findings: The first hypothesis was accepted, which indicates that the CFM performance among the five original ASEAN countries differed significantly during the period after the Asian financial crisis in 1998 to 2017. The second research question indicated that Malaysia and Singapore were ranked the first in the ISP of CFM, while Thailand, Indonesia, and Philippines came next to these two leading ASEAN countries. The third research question indicated that Malaysia and Singapore were strategically positioned in the first quadrant, which must deploy the maintenance of high-growth CFM. Thailand seemed to occupy the innovative CFM refocus strategy, while Indonesia, the expected leading figure in the region, was only positioned fourth. It was expected to fully liberalize and begin with risk diversification in its CFM. The Philippines remained concentrating in its CFM liberalization. Theoretical Contribution/Originality Few studies are considered in the CFM framework, which is integrated with the ISP and using a four-quadrant matrix as an effective measurement. This study is also measuring the ISP effectiveness of CFM in Southeast Asian countries. Managerial Implication in the South East Asian Context The result of the study will be valuable for determining the strategic position of the capital flow mobilization or CFM leading in South East Asian countries. It will enhance the fundamental role of a country in protecting countries from financial turbulences and also on the effectiveness of monetary policy. Research Limitation & Implications The study focused only on the exploration of how the longitudinal unbalanced panel data of the original ASEAN countries' economic indicators from the year 2000 to 2016 by utilizing a four-quadrant positioning matrix tool. It is also concentrated only on the former mentioned or money, which flowed in and out of a country's economic system in accordance with the realm of innovative strategic positioning.

Abstract

The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) has been implemented throughout the ten ASEAN member countries. On one hand, there appears to be an issue of readiness; while on the other hand, many of the practitioners are expecting changes in the business environment. This study focuses on related institutions that will be affected by the AEC project. By employing institutional logics offered by Thornton, Ocasio [1], this study scrutinises academics and business practitioners as institutions and the cultural context embedded within. A mixed method of newspaper data analysis and semi-structured interviews were utilised to get comprehensive data from both sources. The finding suggests there is a definite gap of orientation between business practitioners and academics and that the two institutions have less information and contributions, compared with the government and association influences. This study concludes that more participation is needed from both institutions, which are currently feeling ‘victimized’ by the project and left out in the cold.

Abstract

Abstract     This paper discusses knowledge inertia and its influence in the product innovation, with particular analysis given to the coffee production during pre-harvest and post-harvest periods. The study uses quantitative methodology, and operates multiple and partial regression analysis between variables of the study to measure the impact of knowledge inertia to the innovation of coffee production. To put the findings in detail, the study separates the innovation of coffee product in two sequences, named [a] pre-harvest period and, [b] post-harvest period. Data and information were collected based on cross-sectional cohort data. Samples were 125 members of one big coffee cooperative in West Sumatra, Indonesia. It is found in the study that during the pre-harvest period, learning inertia and procedural inertia brought no significant influence to the innovation of coffee production whilst experience inertia significantly influences the innovation of coffee production during this period. In the post-harvest period, learning inertia significantly influences the innovation of coffee production. Meanwhile, procedural inertia and experience inertia have no significant influence to the innovation of coffee product during the postharvest period of coffee production. The originality and value of this study lie to its design and findings which focuses on the dimension of knowledge inertia in detail, in which a specific product with the sequence of its production was used as the consideration.    Keywords: Knowledge inertia, innovation, pre- and post-harvest periods, cooperative.

Abstract

According to the present research concerning organizational training, managers’ communication are often seen as a critical training management issue that may help to maintain and enhance organizational competitiveness and performance in a borderless world and era of globalization. In this study, the relationship between managers’ communication, motivation to learn and training application was evaluated at military hospitals in Peninsular Malaysia. The SmartPLS path model analysis was utilized to test the research hypotheses and evaluate the validity and reliability of instrument used. The outcomes of SmartPLS path model analysis demonstrate that the ability of managers to communicate the training programs information will strongly invoke employees’ motivation to learn. As a result, this motivation may lead to an enhanced training application in the organizational sample. Further, this study offers discussion, implications and conclusion.   Keywords: Managers’ communication; motivation to learn; training application; SmartPLS

Abstract

In this turbulence competitive environment, invent and deliver value to customers at a favourable position has become more important and more difficult. This study seeks to explore the value proposition creation from the perspectives of travel service provider and investigate the factors of customer perceived value especially on functional value (operation, installations, professionalisms, and price) that simultaneously influence purchase intention from the perspectives of customers as the target market of Jakarta - Bandung transportation service provider. Thus, hopefully those two perspectives could run in the same way. This study took place in Bandung City in Indonesia, on two Jakarta - Bandung transportation service provider and their customers. The method used for this study was mix method study with a use of personal interviews, participant observation, and survey as the approach of collecting and analysing the data. The results indicated that the Jakarta - Bandung transportation service provider could give extra efforts to build great value proposition in order to meet the needs of the customers. Interview and participant observation results from the Jakarta - Bandung transportation service perspectives showed that those two Jakarta - Bandung transportation service provider have different strategy in order to create strong value proposition. Survey results from the perspectives of customers showed that functional value (operation, installations, professionalisms, and price) simultaneously give significant influence toward purchase intention. Thus, both of those perspectives are not perfectly running in the same way. The findings provided some strategic recommendations for both theoretically and practically point of view.

Abstract

This research aims to investigate why there is low insurance purchasing in Indonesia. The research framework adopts the theory of planned behaviour in exploring the insurance purchase intention behaviour of Indonesians. Furthermore, this research introduces health value as the moderating variable on the relationship between attitude towards insurance purchasing and the intention to purchase insurance. We take 311 insurance holders from five Indonesian big cities as the sample. The results show that perceived risk and perceived usefulness play important roles in the attitude towards the intention to purchase health insurance. Our findings also show that health value contributes significantly in explaining health insurance purchasing. This research contributes to the body of knowledge by introducing the theory of planned behaviour in health insurance research. Moreover, this research suggests to policymakers or insurance companies how to gauge psychological factors in terms of influencing people to purchase health insurance.

Abstract

Organisational politics affect almost every employee to some degree, becoming an inevitable and significant part of the entire organisation. Employees who feel victimised by office politics generally develop negative behaviours towards work and the entire organisation, affecting their performances. Differences in personality dimensions cause employees to demonstrate various responses to similar situations. This study assesses whether the perception of organisational politics affects the work and job engagement level of employees, and whether different personality dimensions moderate this relationship. Quantitative research was conducted on employees at the middle or upper level of management, working in different organisations that manufacture products in India. To collect the data, 450 structured questionnaires were distributed; 388 completed questionnaires were received and utilised for the analysis. The study concludes that a perception of organisational politics does exist among employees working in different organisations, and it has a negative relationship with both work and Organisational Engagement. Particular personality traits affect levels of engagement and act as moderators. If management wants to engage their employees more within the job and organisation, it must control the politics that create a negative perception of the organisation among employees.
