What Goes Around Comes Around : - Expectation gap, structure, commitment and innovation in strategic innovation networks

Olsén, Magnus January 2013 (has links)
Strategic innovation networks are formed to through collaboration and joint activities fuel the innovation performance and economic growth for the network members and the regions they are based in and their presence has been more and more common in recent times. Many studies have been made to explore the relations between the innovation performance and the network structure and some has suggested commitment as an intermediate variable. The effect of expectations on joining such network and especially the fulfillment of those expectations has however not been studied. This study explores, on the network level, the relationship between expectation gap, structure, commitment and innovation performance. A questionnaire was sent to all members of three Swedish strategic innovation networks in different industries and regions to collect data to check the relations. The result gives support to the results from previous studies with regard to relationship between network structure, commitment and innovation performance. Furthermore it indicates there is a negative relation between expectation gap and both network structure and commitment. The results of this can help network actors realizing the importance of managing expectations rather than experiencing the negative effects if they are not fulfilled.

Managing growth in a socially responsible way: a case study of Russian companies

Andrey, Krysanov, Shakotko, Mariia January 2014 (has links)
The problem of achieving and sustaining growth is vital for companies in any country market, but it is even more crucial for companies in an emerging market, such as Russia. Meanwhile, some companies in the Russian market succeed not only in growing but also in implementing several socially oriented activities and projects in their strategies. Thus, we identify what are the possible obstacles to growth in the industrial and internal firm environment like, and analyze how companies overcome them. Besides that, we aim to study the forms of corporate social responsibility activity, that Russian companies are engaged in, and how consistent this activity is with the companies' strategies and goals. We have conducted a qualitative case study of five Russian companies, which represent different segments of IT industry. The semi-structured interviews with the managers from the company have been the main sources of the empirical data, however some additional secondary data has also been used. Further on, the gathered empirical data served the materiel for the analysis of the dynamic capabilities the companies possess to overcome the growth challenges they encounter, what strategic innovation processes they implement in their strategies and if there are some socially oriented activities, including particular projects, that the companies are engaged in. If a company practices a certain socially oriented activity then the consistency of this activity with the company's strategy and goals has been analyzed. As social activities are seen as a prerequisite for sustainable business we also analyze if the companies bring natural value to the society and the environment. The results show that the companies with rather high growth figures may lack certain dynamic capabilities, which are or will be needed to overcome a particular growth challenge. Four of the five companies prove to act proactively, thus they have the prerequisite for strategic innovations. These companies also implemented different types of strategic innovation, although not the radical one.For those companies, that are engaged in socially oriented activities, these activities are seen as consistent with the companies' strategies.Meanwhile, only one company implements environmental-friendly solutions, thus it comes closest to running sustainable business. The general provided recommendations for the companies are to develop lacking dynamic capabilities to overcome growth challenges, to act proactively in order to be ready to implement strategic innovations and develop and keep their social activities consistent with their strategies.

Developing an instrument to measure the strategically innovative environment of life insurance organisations in Southern Africa

Burger, Dirk 25 September 2010 (has links)
This thesis reports on an exploratory study to see to what extent an instrument could be developed to measure the strategically innovative environment of life assurance organisations in Southern Africa. This instrument was applied to a number of life assurance organisations in Southern Africa and the results plotted on a four quadrant matrix, developed for this study, to illustrate to what extent certain variables could contribute in establishing a strategically innovative environment. The main contribution of this study is to explain the interaction between the knowledge economy, intellectual capital, the corporate curriculum, learning theory and strategic innovation. This study argues that the interaction between these components is key in developing human capital which in turn is an important component of strategic innovation. Furthermore, the instrument developed for this study can be used to evaluate other organisations, thus ultimately assisting them in becoming strategically innovative as well. It was found that life assurance organisations in Southern Africa could be regarded as moderately strategically innovative. The degree of strategic innovation varies according to the presence and integration of certain variables set out for the organisation. / Thesis (PhD)--University of Pretoria, 2010. / Information Science / unrestricted

Pilotage de la performance globale entre logique de conformation et logique d'innovation : une approche par les systèmes ago-antagonistes : cas de deux entreprises pionnières au Maroc / Global performance control between conformation logic and innovation logic : an ago-antagonists systems approach : case of two pioneer companies in Morocco

Hattabou, Anas 13 December 2011 (has links)
Cette thèse s’intéresse à la dynamique actuelle du développement durable dans l’entreprise et la prise en compte de la responsabilité sociale dans les processus stratégiques. En particulier, elle vise à caractériser les logiques de conception des systèmes de pilotage de la performance globale au sein d’entreprises pionnières au Maroc et la manière dont ces dernières cherchent à articuler exigence de conformation et logique d’innovation en matière de développement durable. La première partie de cette thèse est consacrée à l’élaboration du cadre conceptuel de la recherche, abordant les fondements du concept de la performance globale et analysant la portée et les limites des modèles conçus pour son pilotage. La deuxième partie de la thèse aborde empiriquement la problématique de la recherche. Après une première analyse des démarches des entreprises en matière de développement durable dans le contexte des pays en développement, sont présentés les résultats de deux études de cas multi-sites, réalisées au sein de deux entreprises pionnières au Maroc : Lafarge Maroc et Accor Maroc. Les modalités de déploiement de la démarche de développement durable et les caractéristiques des systèmes de pilotage de la performance globale sont analysées au plan de la stratégie, des structures organisationnelles et de l’instrumentation de gestion. La recherche met en évidence les contraintes spécifiques au contexte marocain qui rendent plus complexe le déploiement stratégique du développement durable. Ces contraintes impliquent un étalement et une gradation des engagements dans le temps permettant à l’encadrement intermédiaire et opérationnel de développer la capacité organisationnelle à porter les projets sociaux et environnementaux du sommet stratégique. On observe par ailleurs un renforcement des structures fonctionnelles et la mise en place de nouvelles démarches qui s’accompagnent d’un décloisonnement organisationnel interne et externe. La mobilisation du cadre d’analyse de la systémique ago-antagoniste a permis de concevoir le pilotage de la performance globale comme un processus d’équilibration sous tension de trois ensembles expansifs de couples ago-antagonistes : performance financière/performance sociale, contrôle/autonomie, routinisation/innovation, relevant respectivement de deux sphères de référence : financière et durable. / This thesis focuses on the current dynamics of sustainable development in the company and the inclusion of social responsibility in strategic processes. In particular, it aims to characterize the logical system design for controlling the overall performance of the pioneers in Morocco and how the latter seek to articulate and logical requirement conformation of innovation in sustainable development. The first part of this thesis is devoted to developing the conceptual framework of research, addressing the foundations of the concept of overall performance and analyzing the scope and limitations of models for its management. The second part of the thesis addresses the problem of empirical research. After an initial analysis of business processes for sustainable development in the context of developing countries, are presented the results of two case studies of multi-site, performed in two pioneering companies in Morocco: Morocco Lafarge and Accor Morocco. The arrangements for the deployment of sustainable development and characteristics of systems for controlling the global performance is analyzed in terms of strategy, organizational structures and management instrumentation.The research highlights the constraints to the Moroccan context that complicate the strategic deployment of sustainable development. These constraints imply a spreading and a gradation of the commitments in time for middle management and operational levels to develop the organizational capacity to carry the social and environmental projects of strategic summit. Moreover, there is a strengthening of the functional and the implementation of new approaches that are accompanied by an opening up our internal and external. The mobilization of the analytical framework of ago-antagonist systems has helped design the global performance management as a process of balancing power of three sets of expansive ago-antagonistic couples: financial performance / social performance, control / autonomy , routinization / innovation, falling within two reference spheres: financial sustainability.

Spridning av projekt resultat i bygg branschen: En studie på Smart Built Environment / Dissemination of project results in the construction industry: A study on Smart Built Environment

Omer, Alend January 2022 (has links)
The construction industry is one of the least digitized industries in the world which results in projectdelays, poor quality, uninformed decision-making, and unnecessary spending. Initiatives from the governmentthat promotes digitalization will therefore play an important role. In Sweden, Smart Built Environment is suchan initiative, that through a bottom-up process where public and private actors from the built environment sectorcooperate in projects together to develop products and services in sustainable perspectives. However, there arechallenges when it comes to transferring and reaping benefits from knowledge developed in projects. The aimof the paper is to investigate how project outcomes from Smart Built Environment projects are handled andhow projects are linked to the program’s intended short-term effects. Through a case study and document analysison two projects, nine different semi-structured interviews with representatives of the organizations involvedin the projects were identified. As the Smart Built Environment's short-term effects were embeddedwith the project goals, it was concluded that the project results were linked to the program's intended shorttermeffects in theory, but that it becomes tangible when implemented in practice. Furthermore, the projectresults spread individually where it was implemented on future projects, internally within the organization inthe form of presentations, and finally through interest groups (BIM alliance) where it was presented to actorsin the entire built environment sector.

Addressing the need of transition by socializing and making new friends : A socio-technical perspective on large-scale change in construction

Håkansson, Olof January 2022 (has links)
This research took its point of departure in the aspiration of large-scale change of the construction industry, where existing industry structures has been frequently criticized. To facilitate innovation and change in the Swedish construction industry, a strategic innovation program has been established based on the idea that research, innovation, and development should manifest itself through the mobilization of collaborative and actor-driven networks. Using a strategic innovation program to support inter-organizational collaboration and actor-driven change is a fairly new phenomenon in the context of construction and thus the subject of inquiry for this research. From a theoretical point of view, this can be understood in terms of a transition of a socio-technical system. Therefore, the purpose was to gain a deeper understanding of how a socio-technical transition of the construction industry could be facilitated. The research presented in this licentiate thesis has been conducted between September 2019 – March 2022 and has been a part of a research project called Program Generic Measurement Methods. This research has a qualitative inquiry and has been designed as a longitudinal case study to understand, and follow, this process of change. The data that has been collected consist of document collection, structured interviews, semi-structured interviews and an autoethnographic approach including observations and self-reflection. Actor-network theory, and specifically the concepts related to the translation process and black boxing, has been used as an analytical framework and facilitated the analysis of the collected data. This thesis increases the understanding of how a socio-technical transition in construction could be facilitated by analyzing the events that lead to the development of the strategic innovation program as well as events from the operational part of the program. Key actors in these processes are identified as well as their roles in a transition of the construction industry. The results indicates that this is far from a linear process that contains a lot of negotiation between participating actors. During this process, the role of digitalization changes when the intention of the program moves from its initiators to the actors engaged in different technological niches. A better integration of academia is asked for due to the complexity that digitally driven transition processes brings. Moreover, actors in the construction industry are encouragedto engage in technological niches to interact and collaborate in new, or modified, ways outside traditional construction activities since it stimulates learning and facilitate a deeper understanding of the challenges that actors in the construction process face together.

中國行銷通路策略創新之研究—以T家具公司為例 / The Innovation of Sales Channel Strategy in ChinaA-Case Study T Furnishing Company

任惠蓮, agogo Unknown Date (has links)
中國經濟最近二、三十年一直保持高速增長的趨勢,尤其是2006至今中國股市的井噴式發展,為中國資本投資市場帶來巨大發展機遇的同時,也帶動了相關產業的發展,如家居零售業就存在著顯著的連動效應。一方面,持續的牛市給股民帶來了高收益,提高了潛在消費者的購買力;另一方面,投資市場的發展也為家居業融資提供了便利。但是,中國家居業市場現有的行銷通路策略,存在嚴重的趨同性,眾多廠家依靠幾乎雷同的通路策略進行著殘酷的零和博弈競爭。家俱工廠,都必須依靠幾家大規模的大型家具賣場通路為載體在裡面開店,方能順利行銷自己產品到客戶手上,家具工廠產品通常交由經銷商在各城市代理販售,或開自營店,若有家俱工廠和家具大賣場因為經銷商的資訊不對接,家俱工廠可能就會失去黃金店面,壓縮到自己生產的傢具品牌空間通路。近年中國火熱的零售通路家樂福、大潤發、沃爾馬,馬不停蹄的在中國展店分食上千億人民幣的量販銷售額,家居業能否藉由前述迥異的通路模式,並充分發揮工廠本身有的資源基礎與核心技術,進而探索出一種創新的行銷通路模式,為顧客創造更高的讓渡價值的同時,擺脫殘酷的紅海競爭,成為家居業競爭參與者面臨的一大挑戰。本文以傢俱工廠T公司為例,通過對其行銷通路策略的綜合系統分析,從傳統家居商場到零售通路的量販店中展店,探索出一套適合中國市場的行銷通路創新模式。 本文分六章,第一章是本文的緒論部分,介紹研究背景及意義,並對相關概念進行界定,提出本文的研究思路和方法,以及文章的結構安排和創新之處。在第二章中主要對資源基礎理論、藍海策略及創新理論等文獻進行了綜述,作為整篇文章的理論支柱。第三章介紹了中國零售業市場的發展概況,著重分析了中國市場量販店發展的情況,為後面提出行銷通路創新提供背景與動機。第四章分析了中國家居業市場現行的幾種主要的行銷通路模式,並綜合分析其特點。第五章以T公司為例提出為何開創新通路及其在中國市場行銷通路模式創新實務。第六章結論與建議。 / In last decade, China's economy kept growing at top speed. The booming stock market, while bringing the enormous opportunity for the Chinese capital market development, has driven the development of relevant industries too. The effect on furniture business is absolutely apparent. On one hand, the bullish stock market has brought high returns to stock holders, while raising the purchasing power of potential consumers. On the other hand, the development of capital market has offered the convenience to financing in furniture business too. However, the homogeneity and zero-sum game of marketing strategy in furniture business is serious enough to be a catastrophe to everyone concerned. In order to approach potential customers, the furniture factories must all rely on several sales channels of high market share to run their own shops inside. Furniture factories usually have their own distributors to promote their sales, or run their own shops. If there is information asymmetry between the furniture factories and sales channels, the furniture factories will encounter the possibility of the loss of shop presence and brand damage. In recent years, Carrefour, RT-Mart, and Wal-Mart develop their own sales channels in China at high speed in order to share the millions of dollars market. How to take advantage of the above-mentioned sales channels and leverage their own resources and core competence to create innovative sales channels, while offering higher value for the customers and getting rid of the cruel Red Sea competition is a challenge to the furniture factories and every participant concerned nowadays. This text takes furniture factory T Company as an example, through comprehensive and systematic marketing strategy analysis, and researches on T Company’s traditional sales channels and new sales channels within retailing chains, to explore a set of sales channels innovation model which is suitable for the Chinese market. This research consists of six chapters. Chapter one which is an introduction part mainly focuses on the basis of the selected title and related definition, introduces relevant concepts, ways of thinking and method studied, and last but not least recommends the thesis structure and its possible innovation. Chapter two is literature review and comment. Representative figures, relevant fields of the thesis and their research results are reviewed on a chronological basis, including several following respects: Resource-Base Theory, Blue Ocean Strategy, and Innovation Theory. Chapter three is the development overview of Chinese retailing business and also analyzes the development of hypermarkets in China emphatically in order to illustrate the background and motive for sales channels innovation. In Chapter four, this research analyzes existing models of sales channels and its characteristics of Chinese furniture business comprehensively. Chapter five takes T Company as an example and further elaborates its strategy and operation on the innovation of sales channels construction. Chapter six is the conclusion and follow-up study suggestion.
