Abstract Platform competition and management shapes and is shaped by a constantly changing socioeconomic context. This implies that managers face transient strategic trade-offs in platform development and competition processes. The frameworks and empirical studies in extant literature do not account for this. A way to address the temporal aspect of strategic action in platform competition research is the systematic use of modelling and simulation alongside empirical cases. The paper explores the...

Abstract How do technologies develop? This study proposes the theory of technological parasitism that is based on the idea that parasite-host relationships between technologies and technologies with a high number of technological parasites have an accelerated evolution driven by long-run mutualistic symbioses, providing the basis for extensive macroevolution and adaptive behavior of systems of interactive technologies in markets. This theory may be useful for bringing a new perspective to explai...

Abstract This study investigates the perception of Information Technology (IT) professionals and IT managers towards deployment of environmental-friendly practices in Collaborative Enterprise (CE). Through literature review this study develops a model based on Perceived Organizational e-Readiness Theory (POER) and Process-Virtualization-Theory (PVT) to investigate the factors that influence IT professionals’ and IT managers intention to deploy Green IT/IS practices which are based on the current ...

Abstract This paper conceptualizes psychological safety as an organizational level phenomenon, and proposes that an organizational climate for psychological safety is positively related to SMEs' innovation performance and innovation capabilities. These hypotheses are tested on data from Norwegian SMEs. The results demonstrate that psychological safety is positively associated with SMEs' innovation performance, and positively related to product-, process-, service-, and business model innovation ...
Abstract Economic and management theory predicts that mature R&D organizations will underinvest into radical technological innovation. Recent research, however, highlights how many established R&D companies often do aggressively invest into radical innovation, but never truly reap the full benefits of their early investments. In order to investigate this paradox, we ground our paper in Agency-theory and focus on the role corporate governance plays in enabling R&D project managers and their teams...

Abstract Viewing the relationship between vertical integration and product architecture as the “mirroring hypothesis”, we examine the case of Tesla Motors. Our analysis demonstrates that, by and large, Tesla pursues a high degree of integrality in product architecture and employs significant vertical integration. Such congruence offers support for the mirroring hypothesis in the introductory stage of the electric vehicle industry. Besides dedicating an idiosyncratic architecture to battery issue...

Abstract University-Business Cooperation (UBC) is an essential mechanism for advancing interests of business, universities and societies. To improve our understanding of the future of UBC research and practice, this study reports on a priority setting process comprising a two-stage research design. Qualitative research identifies a portfolio of six priority areas and 58 related topics. A quantitative step then evaluates the perceived future importance and current advancement of these topics. Thi...

Abstract Standards on product information can facilitate the diffusion of innovations. This paper explores the standards related to the ventilation products with improved acoustic performance and the stakeholders involved. We introduce a new approach to classification and identification of the functions of standards in supporting such innovations. Moreover, our analysis of stakeholders indicates that the companies providing building modeling software have a pivotal role to play regarding the exc...

Abstract The need to reduce time-to-market and reduce cost-of-non-quality drives organizations operating within the advanced manufacturing industry to explore, and source technology externally. This paper reports on a case study of enabling technology and strategies for technology acquisition. The data is collected through in-depth structured interviews with five global technology experts. The interview guide is developed based on data collected in the Norwegian maritime industry, which deliver ...

Abstract This paper explores the evolutionary mechanism of an innovation ecosystem by investigating how the case startup develops to initiate and lead one. The results reveal that the dynamic capabilities of the case company play a key role. They help the company acquire, renew and reconfigure resources to conquer its own development puzzles. This process naturally solves the stage challenges of the innovation ecosystem and advances its evolution. During the evolution, the social capital is an i...
