Malaysia is undoubtedly a development success story. Over the past decade or so rapid economic growth through export-led industrialisation has been accompanied by rising living standards and improvement in the distribution of income, ameliorating the twin problems of poverty and racial imbalances. The key lesson to come from the Malaysian experience is that(More)
This paper measures and compares the cost, revenue and profit efficiency of 43 Islamic and 37 conventional banks over the period 1990-2005 in 21 countries using Data Envelopment Analysis. It assesses the average and overtime efficiency of those banks based on their size, age, and region using static and dynamic panels. The findings suggest that there are no(More)
This paper is a research in progress. Virtual teams (VTs) are increasingly common in organizations, yet explicit research on VTs' performance is relatively rare. One of the key challenges faced by individuals in VTs is the awareness of 'who knows what' and 'who does what' in the team. One of the solutions offered by past research in overcoming these key(More)

  • 2003
OVERVIEW The development of entrepreneurship, as both concept and activity, has been growing in importance in Malaysia. The perceived importance of entrepreneurship to the growth of Malaysia's economy is evidenced by the sheer amount and variety of supporting mechanisms and policies that exist for entrepreneurs, including funding, physical infrastructure(More)
Transactive Memory Systems (TMS) are important cognitive constructs to share knowledge and control and coordinate interdependent tasks in teams. The construction of Transactive Memory Systems involves a number of key phases that lead up to the actual formation of a team's TMS. In particular, the development of Task-Expertise-People (TEP) units, form an(More)
We examine the central prediction of the pecking order theory of financing among firms in two distinct life cycle stages, namely growth and maturity. We find that within a life cycle stage, where levels of debt capacity and external financing needs are more homogeneous, and after sufficiently controlling for debt capacity constraints, firms with high(More)
Although virtual teams are increasingly common in organizations, research on the formation of Transactive Memory Systems (TMS) in virtual teams and its effect on team performance is relatively rare. Previous studies have reported that TMS quality influences team performance in face-to-face teams. However, the effect of TMS quality on the performance of(More)
The main objective of this study is to understand and explain how large organisations that employ highly integrated business processes could use ECMS to support work operations. Consequently, empirical investigations using a qualitative research design were conducted in a large organisation. Concepts from Orlikowski’s (2000) practice lens theory are used as(More)
Task interdependence within teams is critical towards the team's performance. However, there has not been strong support in examining the effect of task interdependence on the relationship between Transactive Memory Systems (TMS) quality and team performance. Using a survey, this research examines the potential effects of the moderating and mediating(More)
