  • Designing Intellectual Capital and Capital Structure for Financial Performance and Firm Value   Order a copy of this article
    by Muchlis Muchlis, Made Setini, Nur Fadjrih Asyik, Mochamad Mochklas, Ni Ketut Adi Mekarsari 
    Abstract: The purpose of this study was to ascertain the effect of a firm's capital components on its performance, including supply chain design, intellectual capital, and capital structure, which increases firm value between 2020 and 2023. A total of 385 were used as test objects from findings in the field by grouping 65 samples. It can be concluded that the findings are that intellectual and structural capital is an important factor in creating company performance and providing value creation for the company; this is a good issue for investors. Since investors recognised the importance of skilled human resources capable of successfully managing the business and establishing positive relationships with external parties, financial performance has not been shown to mediate the effect of intellectual capital on creating firm value. Simultaneously, capital from the structure impacts the company and company value directly and through the mediation of the company's financial performance. The important issue of structural capital is the level of security of trading capital, which is important for prospective investors.
    Keywords: structural capital; intellectual capital; financial performance; company value; skill human resources; value added intellectual coefficient.

    by Tuba Bajwa, Ahsan Ali Ashraf, Khalid Hafeez, Muhammad Shafiq 
    Abstract: This academic study examines the relationship between innovation, new business initiatives, proactivity, and business performance in Pakistani Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The study used a quantitative methodology and a sample size of 307 businesses to examine the correlations between these variables. The results show that innovation significantly and favourably affects SME business success. The performance of SMEs is greatly improved by innovative tactics including product development, process optimisation, and market differentiation. Additionally, it was discovered that new business ventures significantly and favourably affected firm performance. The findings of this study are important for Pakistani SMEs because they provide knowledge regarding tactics that could increase their efficacy and flexibility in the face of a dynamic and constantly changing business environment.

  • Innovation Choices in Modern Times: The Interplay of Technology and Non-Technology Approaches with a Spotlight on the Moderation Effect of Research Systems   Order a copy of this article
    by Henry Junior Anderson, Samuel Amponsah Odei, Bright Frimpong, Jan Stejskal, Frank Febiri 
    Abstract: Recently, businesses have increasingly adopted open innovation, yet many still opt for internal innovation due to trust, security, and cost concerns. Notwithstanding, there has been little research into these strategic choices immediate and long-term effects. This study addresses this gap by analysing data from the European Innovation Scoreboard between 2011 and 2019. We investigate whether a firms decision to pursue internal or open innovation significantly impacts its technological and non-technological innovation outcomes over varying timeframes. Additionally, we examine the contingent influence of a research system on firms decisions regarding innovation collaboration. Our findings reveal that internal and open innovation strategies have distinct effects on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across different periods, particularly with a two-year time lag. Further, a robust research system can impede cooperative efforts to achieve technological and non-technological innovation objectives. The study concludes with practical policy recommendations, empowering businesses with clear guidance for navigating innovation strategies in current business environments.
    Keywords: Technological innovation; Non-technological innovation; Human capital; Open innovation; In-house innovation.
