The well-known concepts of value or supply chains do not do justice to describing how value is created in today’s complex networks. Whereas traditional value chains have been characterized by strict upstream and downstream relationships, organizations nowadays interact as networked intermediaries (Porter, 1980; Yassine & Braha, 2003). These networks not only consist of companies; any player such as a research institute can partake in the process of value creation (Fjeldstad & Ketels, 2006).

This article reviews research on open innovation that considers how and why firms commercialize external sources of innovations. It examines both the “outside-in” and “coupled” modes of Enkel et al. (2009). From an analysis of prior research on how firms leverage external sources of innovation, it suggests a four-phase model in which a linear process — (1) obtaining, (2) integrating and (3) commercializing external innovations — is combined with (4) interaction between the firm and its collabora...

In this thesis, we endeavour to explore the characteristics and the role of exceptionally innovative small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) within the UK system of innovation. The focus is placed on 'serial' and 'persistent' innovators, defined as independent companies with an unusually high frequency of innovation over time. The aim of the thesis is to identify such companies and analyse those factors, both internal and external to the enterprise, which influence such a sustained stream of i...

We test for the determinants of Multinational Enterprise (MNE) headquarters decisions to augment the innovative capabilities of the MNE group by granting mandates to their subsidiaries to set-up own R&D labs in UK regions, using a unique primary data set. Our findings suggest that the best predictor for a subsidiary receiving a mandate, is the strength of its ‘productive opportunity’ (the interaction between internal competencies and external environment). We employ a measure that augments the e...

This paper investigates the impact of two dimensions of product knowledge bases on organizational structures. The first dimension, knowledge breadth, measures the complexity of a product. The second dimension, knowledge depth, measures the extent to which the knowledge embedded in the product can be used in different contexts. An agent-based simulation study is carried out to analyse the structural characteristics of organizations that emerge when self-interested agents select partners to combin...

We have taken a study to assess the factors that affect the extent of that firms introduce resources from the external. We have factors of firm size, R&D capability, absorptive capability, need for knowledge, need for complementary assets, the opening culture and the technology protection institutions based on related literature. We have taken a regression analysis in two types of openness as dependent variables based on a sample of 219 firms in the Chinese power equipment manufacturing industry...

The transition from developing country technology firm to true multinational requires both an upgrading of the underlying capability base and an understanding of the purpose of IP management. Through a detailed case study of Sasol, a leading R&D firm from South Africa, this paper tracks the coevolution of IP management with technological advancement amid the constraints of the developing country context. Using interviews, annual reports, patent, and scientific publication data, this study sugges...

In this paper, we model the formation of innovation networks as they emerge from bilateral decisions. In contrast to much of the literature, here firms only consider knowledge production, and not network issues, when deciding on partners. Thus, we focus attention on the effects of the knowledge and information regime on network formation. The effectiveness of a bilateral collaboration is determined by cognitive, relational, and structural embeddedness. Innovation results from the recombination o...

We explore the determinants of MNE subsidiaries decisions to set-up own R&D laboratories drawing on evidence from UK regions. In this context, we also test for the interaction between firm's internal and external environments. We also integrate extant IB and strategic management literatures and incorporate recent debates in New Economic Geography (NEG) in specifying the 'external environment'. We find support for the role of firm's 'productive opportunity' and predictions of the NEG on the basis...
