Abstract

In “A Structural Analysis of the UK Grocery Retail Market”, Robert Duke used Michael E. Porter′s framework for the structural analysis of industries to analyse the UK grocery retail market. Since this article was published in 1989, many potentially significant changes and developments have happened in this market, making an update of Duke′s 1989 analysis of interest. Sources of even greater power over suppliers enjoyed by retailers can be traced to implementations of new technologies in grocery retailing, and to the growth of pan‐European concentrations of buying power, while the threat posed by price‐cutting new entrants will force incumbents to use more of this power. Competition in the market itself will be influenced by superstore saturation, the emergence of a “Big Three” of retailers, and by potentially significant new entrants, able to defeat the market′s barriers to entry. This will create a more complex competitive structure.

Abstract

A number of competitive forces seem set to re‐shape the UK grocery retail market during the 1990s, such as superstore saturation, information technology, and the emergence of a dominant “Big Three” group of retailers. A factor likely to be of major significance is the entry of European retailers, such as Aldi and Netto. The UK market is particularly attractive to European limited line discounters because of its wide net margins, and because its price competitive low end is vulnerable, having been largely abondoned during the 1980s as many UK incumbents moved “up market”. These European discounters possess the specific skills and assets necessary to penetrate the UK market′s three main barriers to entry. European new entry is partly responsible for a renewal of interest in discount grocery retailing among UK incumbents, which, in combination with other competitive forces, will produce a more complex and subtle structure to the UK grocery retail market.

Abstract

Markets are characterised by distinctive patterns of competition, sources of threat or opportunity and, indeed, various levels of profitability. The author considers how significant new entry to grocery retailing is unlikely to be due to sharp competition and increasing rarity of good supermarket/superstore sites. Furthermore, the buyers from the industry, the grocery shoppers, are not so much participants in the power struggles, as weapons in it.

Abstract

The area of innovation and new product development is both one of the most important and one of the most uncertain in management decision making. What looked like good ideas on the drawing board often fail in the marketplace for seemingly arbitrary reasons, or simply due to bad luck. Many innovations fail because the relationship between the innovation and the consumer is ignored in the quest for state‐of‐the‐art technology. While innovation will always remain a risky undertaking, the application of consumer behaviour models, such as that proposed by E.M. Rogers, can increase the proportion of successful product launches.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper analyzes citations from the first 20 volumes of Advances in Management Accounting using Google Scholar in April and May, 2013.

Methodology/approach

This study assesses the success of the first 20 volumes of Advances in Management Accounting using citation analysis. Four citation metrics are used. The four citation metrics are: (1) total citations since year of publication until April and May, 2013, (2) citations per author since year of publication until April and May, 2013, (3) citations per year since year of publication until April and May, 2013, and (4) citations per author per year since year of publication until April and May, 2013.

Findings

The top 20 authors for each citation metric, the top 20 faculties for each citation metric, and the top 20 doctoral programs for each citation metric are determined. Furthermore, the top 20 articles are determined using two citation metrics and the H-index for Advances in Management Accounting is computed.

Originality/value of paper

Potential doctoral students, current doctoral students, “new” Ph.D.s with an interest in management accounting, current management accounting faculty, department chairs, deans, other administrators, journal editors, and journal publishers will find these results informative.
