Crowd predictions from the frontline:
A proactive decision tool for dynamic, strategic management.
Project coordinators: Assistant Professor Carina Antonia Hallin and Professor Torben Juul Andersen.

As a manager in a global corporation, imagine that you within one week can collect data and receive a comprehensive report which summarizes what hundreds of your employees in global subsidiaries predict is going to benefit your company over time. And imagine, as an employee working in a local subsidiary, that top management of the global corporation makes decisions on the basis of your weekly predictions.
This scenario is made possible due to a new method developed by Assistant Professor at CBS Carina Antonia Hallin which makes use of prediction software.
In one day, the software can analyze great amounts of data from employees (the crowd) which instantly are made available to management.
The predictions of today are usually based on historical data e.g. monthly, quarterly or annual reports.  The project will establish a deeper understanding of the potential strategic value of collective intelligence, where predictions from employees on the companies’ frontline create better and more exact information for important decisions at headquarters.
The project is going to test and validate the method together with Danish manufacturing companies operating in global markets.

The role of diaspora investors in developing countries:
A study of firm internationalization and inter-firm collaborations.  

Project Coordinator: Larissa Rabbiosi

Although the relevance of diaspora members as foreign investors in their countries of origin is recognized, their role in the development and success of the firms in which they invest is mostly ignored.
The proposed project aims to understand how firm internationalization and inter-firm collaborations are affected by diaspora investor ownership.
First, building on organizational learning theory, we propose that minority diaspora owners can facilitate domestic firms’ decisions about FDI through the provision of specialized knowledge and experience of foreign markets.
Second, building on social capital theory, we suggest that diaspora owners compared to other types of foreign owners, positively affect the number and success of foreign-owned firms’ collaborations in the host developing country. However, in this regard, regional differences in the host country matter, and the benefits associated with diaspora ownership are reduced in presence of strong local institutions.
