Abstract Innovations in business models involve a dynamic process that makes business values resilient against market and technology changes. We propose a schema that supports predicting the effect of innovation on business model values. The schema redefines the value proposition logic in business model innovations with five primary variables: business dependence structure, business value dominance, innovation dynamics, innovation domains, and innovation-resources-agility. Based on the schema, we have tested a set of hypotheses for 474 cases of business model innovations in four textile processing technology markets. We have estimated and modeled the data using two techniques: Cox modeling and temporal qualitative comparative analysis. The former predicts the business model that is destructed by innovation over time and the latter assesses the configurative conditions for innovation during the destruction period. The findings offer insights for predicting business model innovation as a value creation platform and for predicting innovative business models in industrial technology markets.

Abstract Business model innovation purports to create new business values in uncharted market ecologies. In addressing questions of how business contexts can shape and impose urgency on business model innovation, this research reviews and puts forth five classes of contextual antecedents, namely, business eco-networks, the business actors' behavioral orientation, mastery of technology, rules and governance, and business complexity. The research also posits that the configurations of these contex...

Abstract Focusing on the role of efficiency and novelty design themes, this paper examines how (a) the initial business model of a start-up, (b) the subsequent changes in the design themes and (c) the combinative effect of efficiency and novelty (contextual ambidexterity) impact a start-up's growth performance. The study is based on a survey involving 267 new ventures from high-tech industries. The results highlight the importance of pursuing higher efficiency over the life cycle of a start-up, ...

Innovation capabilities are important for firms to compete in the market. However, the literature has rarely examined how exploitative and exploratory innovation influences the export performance of small and medium-sized firms (SMEs). As exploitative and exploratory innovation plays different roles in sustaining SMEs' competitive advantages, this article presents an analysis of how four specific firms' innovation capabilities (i.e. marketing, strategy, research and development and manufacturing...

In dynamic business environments entrepreneurs increasingly strive to customise new products/services to displayed and latent user needs. User-driven innovation (U.D.I.) aims to incorporate user needs by giving users an active role in the innovation process. Despite the growing interest of researchers in U.D.I., empirical evidence remains scarce, because of a lack of a psychometrically sound instrument to enhance insight into U.D.I. This paper derives an integrative definition of U.D.I. from dif...

Innovative activities have become increasingly important to firms in emerging markets, particularly in China in recent years. Facing weak institutional and competitive environments in China, firms building local connections to react and to innovate can hold a better competitive position. Our study investigates how building local connections and local competition may influence a firm's innovation and compares the moderating effect of ownership (local vs. foreign firms) on firm innovation in the e...

Abstract Central to the value co-creation business model is mutualistic interaction, through which business value producers propose offers and affirm the final meaning of offering values with customer experience. The model treats each upstream offering of value production merely as a part of value proposition (Gronroos, 2011; Vargo, 2008). Thus, the interaction becomes a locus, key source of value co-creation. Contemporary literature on interactive marketing and service research contain a myriad...

Applying the construct of entrepreneurial orientation (EO) we test the relationship between the dimensions of entrepreneurial risk taking and innovativeness. Risk taking is measured as an entrepreneurial propensity as well as a behaviour. Innovativeness is manifested in decisions for strategic growth, specifically strategies of vertical integration and horizontal diversification. The study context is the turbulent and hostile environment of Russia, focusing on 158 successful entrepreneurs and th...

The article analyzes how Industry 4.0 triggers changes in the business models of manufacturing SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises), by conducting a qualitative research with a sample of 68 German SMEs from three industries (automotive suppliers, mechanical and plant engineering, as well as electrical engineering and ICT). As SMEs play an essential role in industrial value creation, the article examines significant, yet at present understudied implications of Industry 4.0 along industrial v...

One of the fundamental dilemmas of modern society is the unpredictable and problematic effect of rapid technological development. Sometimes the consequences are momentous not only on the level of a firm, but also on the level of an entire industry or society. This paper provides a framework to understand and assess such disruptions with a focus on the firm and industry levels. First, we give a generally applicable definition for a disruption as an event in which an agent must redesign its strate...

Abstract Business model architectures in the car industry are gaining increased attention from scientists and policymakers. Although scientific studies have been conducted to address the pressures faced by future business models to change, no research has examined the bibliometric variables in this area. This study aims to fill the gap by conducting a bibliometric analysis of 104 articles on business models for electric cars. The analysis showed that the literature on business models for electri...

Abstract The sharing economy is a hotbed of hybridity and sustainability owing to the reduction in transactions costs that create information, trust, and trade. However, the hybridization also challenges the sustainability of sharing business models, a tension often criticized but rarely addressed. This paper identifies and solves three challenges of hybridization. First, we show that there is no deterministic link between organizational missions and sustainability outcomes. This means that not-...
