Digital ventures, start-ups growing by drawing on and adding to digital infrastructures, can scale their business at an unprecedented pace. We view such rapid scaling as a generative process by which a venture’s user base increases significantly between two points in time through digital innovation. We studied WeCash, a Chinese digital venture, nearly doubling its user base monthly, to learn more about this generative process. We trace three contingent mechanisms underpinning rapid scaling: data...

Community of Practice (CoP) has provided a vital context where learning and situated practice can be created and shared. While prior studies have pointed out its unique social processes, the role of structured and formalized competition in relation to the progression of a community is rarely examined. Instead of seeing competition as breakdown or inhibitor of a community, our study explores and theorizes the general roles played by competition. We studied Taiwan’s tennis community, which has acc...

This research uses the concept of ambidexterity to develop further the field of urban transformation and sustainability. Empirically, we document and conceptualize the experience of a Chinese industrialized city, Hangzhou, in overcoming the economic-ecological trade-off common in declining urban environments. We analyze Hangzhou's large-scale green initiative by examining the political, entrepreneurial and environmental rationale behind the initiative, the distinctive organizational capability t...

This research examines how fellow-townsmenship, a distinctive homophilous social network, functioned among Ningbo entrepreneurs pertaining to their simultaneous exploration and exploitation of business opportunities, or achieving ambidexterity, in the nineteenth century. By investigating data in relevant historical records from museums, archives and libraries, case studies based on two representative Ningbo entrepreneurs from a distinctive business family showcase how those entrepreneurs took ad...

Central to our inquiry is how organizations manage and accommodate conflicting demands in managing internal communication when they adopt social media that allows for more open and distributed communication. Drawing on ambidexterity theory we investigate and analyze the tensions and capabilities necessary to effectively manage two distinct types of internal communication (1) organizationally produced content and (2) user-generated content. We propose and unpack the concept of communicational amb...

This paper examines and conceptualizes the process underlying the diffusion of a back office messaging system connecting the financial transaction activities of fund houses in Europe to banks in Taiwan. Drawing on the theoretical notions of rhetorical practice and technological frame, it develops a socio-cognitive process framework to conceptualize how the articulation of rhetorical situations and the deployment of rhetorical strategies influence stakeholders' sense-making toward a new technolog...

We use the notion of site to create an alternative lens to theorise the strategy practice of ambidexterity.We illustrate and conceptualise how practices are bundled to yield the emerging, dynamic and fluid nature of ambidexterity.We explain how the phenomenon of site-shifting can serve as the new conceptual ground to develop and enact the practice of ambidexterity.We detail empirical insights collected from the leading ticketing company in China. Ambidexterity, defined as the capability to simul...

This study examines the impacts of legitimacy on the planning and decision making in the context of sport sponsorship. Three types of legitimacy, including regulatory, moral and cognitive (Suchman, 1995; Zimmerman and Zeitz, 2002), are used as a lens to form the basis of our theoretical foundation. Based on this lens, a qualitative case study has been conducted to collect and analyse empirical insights from existing sponsors, potential sponsors, event organisers, sports men and women and other r...

The role of IS project team identity work in the enactment of day-to-day relationships with their internal clients is under-researched. We address this gap by examining the identity work undertaken by an electronic human resource management (e-HRM) 'hybrid' project team engaged in an enterprise-wide IS implementation for their multi-national organisation. Utilising social identity theory, we identify three distinctive, interrelated dimensions of project team identity work (project team managemen...
