Marketing scholar Dr Wu Wei-ping receives Best Full Paper Award at British Academy of Management annual conference

市場學系吳衛平博士榮獲英國管理學會「最佳論文獎」

Dr Wu Wei-ping, Associate Professor of the Department of Marketing, School of Business, was recently awarded the Best Full Paper Award for his distinguished co-authored paper entitled “Information sharing and firm performance: the mediating roles of marketing and managerial capabilities” at the annual conference of the British Academy of Management (BAM) held at Newcastle University in the UK.

The award-winning paper was co-authored by Dr Wu with Professor Marie McHugh, Dean of Ulster University Business School, UK; Professor Paul Humphreys, Director of Business and Management Research Institute of Ulster University Business School, UK; and Dr Frank Weingarten, Associate Professor, Department of Operations, Innovation and Data Sciences, ESADE Business School in Spain.

Based on a sample of 156 Chinese manufacturing firms, the study contributes to existing knowledge by confirming that there is a positive information-sharing-performance correlation to managerial and marketing capabilities. The paper has implications for management, suggesting that manufacturers should engage in reliable information sharing with their key suppliers in order to achieve operational efficiency in reaching target customers. Internally, it is advisable for senior managers to facilitate the development of their subordinates so as to encourage teamwork to solve conflicts.

Dr Wu Wei-ping was delighted to receive the award and said: “I am delighted that our research efforts have been recognised by fellow researchers at the British Academy of Management. This award is a recognition of our research strength, but more importantly, it highlights the value of international collaborations in academic circles. The award has also enhanced the image of HKBU internationally, in particular, within the management research community. This would not have been possible without the support of HKBU and the School of Business.” 

BAM is a leading authority in the academic field of management. The BAM annual conference, now in its 30th year, is one of the most prestigious international events for business and management scholars.

工商管理學院市場學系副教授吳衛平博士近日在英國紐卡素大學舉行的英國管理學會年會上,憑著他出色的合著論文「資訊分享與公司表現的關係:市務及管理能力之間的中介角色」,獲頒發「最佳論文獎」。

該得獎論文是吳博士以第一作者身份,與英國阿爾斯特大學商學院院長Marie McHugh教授、工商管理研究學院主任Paul Humphreys教授,以及西班牙ESADE商學院營運創新及資訊科技學系副教授Frank Weingarten博士共同撰寫。
   
研究以內地156間製造業公司作為調查對象,引證了市務和管理功能,與資訊分享和公司表現的正面關係,並互相產生影響。在管理層面上,論文揭示了製造商應與主要供應商多作交流,互相傳遞可靠消息,從而提升營運效率,共同開拓市場。在公司內部溝通方面,管理層應鼓勵下屬發揮團隊合作,藉此化解紛爭。

吳衛平博士對獲獎表示欣慰,他說:「我非常高興我們的研究努力,得到英國管理學會學者的肯定。這個獎項不但確認了我們的研究實力,更值得鼓舞的是反映了國際合作在學術界的重要性。此外,獎項亦有助提升香港浸會大學的國際形象,特別是管理學研究方面。如非得到浸大和工商管理學院的支持,我們絕不能得到這項殊榮。」

英國管理學會是英國管理學研究領域的權威,年會舉辦至今已是第30屆,是學術界的國際盛事。
