The paper aims to discuss this issue.,The authors took reference to the work on readiness to change and studied how the future time perspective, which connects with early writings by Lewin (1942), would explain the attitudes and behaviour of 148 managers.,The findings indicate that only a smal...

Abstract The world economy relies on access to industrial metals, oil and gas for maintaining its critical industrial infrastructure. Although demand is likely to remain high, the most accessible deposits have been depleted. Future capacity growth will be facilitated through further technological developments. Therefore, Russia as a leading producer, is paying great attention to strengthening its competitive edge in global markets. This paper reports on a large-scale technology foresight study o...

The everyday context of the youth is becoming increasingly globalized through the media or the internet. Stories that have been passed on from generation to generation are often the connecting threads within a culture – underlining the significance of oral history. The loss of immediate personal identity in an increasingly global world is one of the grand challenges of our time. However, the increasing integration of economic activities including a streamlined entertainment industry have left fe...

Abstract This paper discusses the emergence of blockchain technology in the energy sector in the light of ongoing energy market transformation. The study builds on literature research and expert interviews, and provides insights into the future energy landscape in the context of the blockchain advent. While the interviewees acknowledge the great, though disruptive, potential of blockchain technology for the primary activities in the electricity sector, there is agreement that inflexible regulato...

ABSTRACTThis paper studies open innovation practices in Russian state-owned enterprises (SOEs). In 2011, the Russian Government set ambitious goals in science, technology and innovation, and uses its large SOEs as channels to achieve these targets. These initiatives focus on the collaboration among innovation actors and introduce open innovation (OI) principles. Based on a large-scale innovation survey, we compare private enterprises to state-owned peers and present selected case studies. Our da...

Design/methodology/approach Adapting a user-centred design approach, the observations and interviews revealed a number of weaknesses of the current control room design. Findings While most suggestions would require larger restructuring, the designers intervened with simple solutions resulting in ...

Inclusive innovation builds on overcoming poverty through the creative power and problem-solving capacity of the poor. While the concept is met with increasing interest from policymakers, it is not clear how this collaboration is actually taking place. This paper introduces digital storytelling (DST) as a method to successfully give marginalized communities a voice in collaborative innovation processes. In contrast to previous experiences with DST that mainly look backward, we applied the techni...
