Dr. Nilam Kaushik’s manuscript accepted for publication at Manufacturing & Service Operations Management 

Dr. Nilam Kaushik’s manuscript, titled ‘Sequential Innovation in Mobile App Development,’ has been approved for publication in Manufacturing & Service Operations Management (A1, FT 50). Dr. Kaushik, a Strategy area faculty member, co-authored the article with Bilal Gokpinar.

The article explores the market performance consequences of three different types of mobile app development activities. The study adds to the operations management literature by giving an empirically based knowledge of sequential innovation and its market performance implications in mobile app development, a large, diverse, and promising industry. The paper employs text-mining and information retrieval techniques to investigate the rich information in-app release notes using a fresh dataset of mobile apps in the Productivity category.

The inclusion of features and traits from other product subcategories in product updates did not appear to have a positive impact on market performance, according to the research. By examining the sequential innovation traits linked to increased market success in seeking and implementing new features and attributes, this study provides managerial insights into mobile app development.
