    A professional services firm's competence development2007In: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 36, no 8, p. 1068-1081Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The conceptualization of a firm's competence development has undergone some developments, as seen from the extant literature. However, studies or explanations of a firm's competence development over time seem to concentrate on firms that manufacture physical goods. The literature is devoid of studies on the competence development of professional services firms (PSFs). With two in-depth case studies, this paper seeks to shed light on factors that impinge on PSFs' competence development over time. An important finding of this study is that all the two PSFs' competence development over time has been influenced, in large measure, by their close and regular interaction with their respective immediate customers as well as with some significant third parties in their network of exchange relationships, where the actors mutually adapt to each other and also learn from each other. Evidences in all the two cases show that each of the firms has won and kept important customers that give them the most and frequent assignments per year, thanks to the factors that have affected their competence to meet customers' demand over time.

    Product development the IKEA way – The role of target costing as a framing device to configure and combine resources in networks2024In: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 119, p. 206-217Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Relying on two embedded case studies of product development within IKEA's industrial network, this paper examines the role of Target Costing as an accounting tool that has the capacity to frame development efforts into either exploitative or explorative projects. Such a framing affects, in turn, the configuration of the relevant network of resources and mediates the behavior of the actors involved via specific types of controls. We contribute to the IMP-inspired literature on innovation and product development as we add nuances to how the concepts of exploitative and explorative innovation paths play out on a network level, especially in relation to the resource dimension. In addition, the notion of the mediating role of accounting adds to how we can understand control and its consequences in an interorganizational network context. Our data consists of several sources, about 70 interviews with individuals working at IKEA and its partners. We also had access to internal company material such as costing calculations. Our study has practical implications as it can help managers identify which types of control to use and how these can be matched with different innovations strategies on a network level. © 2024 The Authors

    Explaining business model innovation processes: A problem formulation and problem solving perspective2022In: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 105, p. 223-239Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study explains the business model innovation processes in industrial firms. Drawing on three case studies of leading business-to-business firms shifting from product-based to service-based business models, it introduces problems as a theoretical concept to explain business model innovation processes. We show how formulating and solving problems guide the search for a viable business model and why some problem formulation and solving activities lead firms to shift between backward-looking and forward-looking searches. The decision to shift to a forward-looking search is triggered by the perception of failure to continue with an established way of working, while the shift to a backward-looking search is based on the perception of high alternative costs. We contribute to the business model innovation and servitization literature by theorizing the process of business model innovation and providing implications for managers. © 2022 The Authors

    Service Design Visualization Tools for Supporting Servitization in a Machine Tool Manufacturer2018In: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 71, p. 189-202Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As competition for their products increases, manufacturers have taken a greater interest in servitization. However, they face a difficult challenge when they try to develop service-oriented business models and design service value propositions that require a change in mind-set and new approaches. Thus, the purpose of this exploratory paper is to develop, apply, and evaluate an approach for service value proposition design that manufacturers can use in their transition from a primarily product-oriented business model to a more service-oriented business model. A qualitative research approach - the research through design approach - is taken in a case study of a Spanish machine tool manufacturer engaged in servitization. The findings of this research derive from a service design project at two of the manufacturer’s divisions. The empirical data consist of 45 artifacts (prototypes, visualizations, and models) from six workshops and six semi-structured interviews with key company managers. The paper analyzes various service design visualization tools in manufacturing, examines the design of service value propositions, and suggests avenues for additional research on the use of a systematic methodology for service value proposition design.

    Service design for digital servitization: Facilitating manufacturers' advanced services value proposition design in the context of Industry 4.02023In: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 110, p. 96-116Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Industry 4.0 provides increasing opportunities for manufacturing companies in servitization, which has led to the emergence of digital servitization. Several single case studies have suggested service design as a means to advanced services value proposition design in digital servitization. However, these case studies are context-constrained, while multicase studies investigating the impact of service design on digital servitization remain sparse. In the present study, we examined, over two and a half years, the application of service design for advanced services value proposition design in a multicase study of 10 manufacturers engaged in digital servitization. By applying a research through design method, we studied the impact of service design on the digital servitization process and identified the types of events that shape the advanced services value proposition design. As a result, this research provides further insights into the impact of service design on digital servitization in the manufacturing context and offers new avenues for further research in the field. © 2023 The Authors.
