A Computational Framework for Analyzing Dynamic Procurement Auctions: The Market Impact of Information Sharing

A Computational Framework for Analyzing Dynamic Procurement Auctions: The Market Impact of Information Sharing. Ariel Pakes, June 20, 2018, Paper, “This paper develops a computational framework to analyze dynamic auctions. We modify the Experience Based Equilibrium concept to account for dynamic auctions and add, and then operationalize a boundary consistent condition which mitigates the extent of multiple equilibria that can arise in Experience Based Equilibria. Our example shows that allowing for the dynamics implicit in many auction environments is important in that it enables the emergence of equilibrium states that can only be reached when firms are responding to dynamic incentives. It also shows that the impact of information sharing can depend crucially on the extent of dynamics and suggests that information sharing, even of strategically important data, need not be anti-competitive.Link

Inequality in Knowledge Repository Use in Scaling Service Operations

Inequality in Knowledge Repository Use in Scaling Service Operations. Amy Edmondson, August 15, 2017, Paper, “To scale service operations requires sharing knowledge across the organization. However, prior work highlights that individuals on the periphery of organizational knowledge sharing networks may struggle to access useful knowledge at work. A knowledge repository (KR) has the potential to help peripheral individuals gain access to valuable knowledge because it is universally available and can be used without social interaction. However, for it to serve this equalizing function, those on the periphery of the organizational knowledge sharing networks must actually use it, possibly overcoming barriers to doing so. In this paper, we develop a multi-level model of knowledge use in teams to explore how individuals on the periphery of knowledge networks – due to inexperience, location, lack of social capital, gender, and role – access knowledge from a KR.Link
