Abstract There exists little research into how value is effectively generated by temporary projects from the wider perspective of a permanent organisation. This paper investigates empirically how ‘Governance of Projects’ – the way in which a single, permanent organisation identifies, creates, and subsequently harvests value through multiple projects – occurs in four private-sector case companies. Data were collected from in-depth interviews with a wide range of employees and from internal operat...

Purpose Projects are an inherent part of implementing strategies. Still, the challenge is to connect a long-term strategy for larger ecosystem development to the individual projects being undertaken. The purpose of this paper is to test the ability of seven project management office (PMO) roles to achieve strategic planning in large society development public organisations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Design/methodology/approach The questionnaire survey that was employed for data collected...

The objective of this paper is to discuss the challenges and opportunities involved in the pricing of industrial IT solutions and to propose practical advice on how to implement value-driven strategy in pricing. A case study of an organisation moving towards value-based pricing is presented. The results provide clarification of new pricing strategies for managers by defining work packages for implementing the transition towards a value-based approach. The findings show that value-based pricing i...

Innovation in mature firms is commonly explained in terms of the impersonal domain of knowledge. The contradiction is, however, that the origin of innovation is known to be the job of a few critical individuals. Our point of departure is the innovation management research field. This empirical study builds on the role characters known as promoters of innovation. We analyze the specific accumulated and shared knowledge of these actors. Our study proposes a common schema for their joint effort as ...

Abstract To succeed business around renewables and sustainability often need new types of business models. Business models are typically considered from the viewpoint of a focal firm, whereas renewables and sustainability often require a broader, system perspective. We explore how firms together in the energy business ecosystems develop their business models to facilitate change in the logic of the industry. Earlier studies on ecosystems have looked at the role of technical interdependencies in ...

This article introduces a framework for governance of large industrial investments that dynamically connects organizational management to the investment's physical state of operation (current or predicted). An important component of the framework captures the relation of individual industrial investments to the larger systems in which they operate. Our case studies are bridge infrastructure investments, which are part of roadway networks, and container ships, which are part of the container ship...

This white paper argues that governance of industrial investments should be connected to their actual and predicted states of operation in relation to the larger system where they operate. Our example system is a container ship that functions as part of an international logistics system. We investigate the measurement, analysis, and management of the ship’s performance. We focus on the actual dynamism of the physical system and how it can be predicted in a way that enables system governance to a...

Biogas production and its use as traffic fuel are discussed in this chapter as an example of a system eco-innovation that is struggling to become implemented in a focal municipality. The biogas producer and distributor as the owner of the “core technology” have the potential to become the integrator of a functioning ecosystem required for the innovation to succeed. The company’s business model, however, should be transformed to incorporate the radical and system nature of the eco-innovation as w...
