    Evolution of systems of technology transfer in rural developing economies2018Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Longitudinal studies show that technology transfer changes over time but do not systematically address how this occurs. This paper addresses the evolution of technology transfer by analyzing changes in the focal actors, their perceived problems, problem-solving activities and implemented technological and organizational solutions. Empirically, we analyze the evolution of fish and silk production in Cauca, Colombia, a rural region characterized by a low level of education. While production was initiated by national and international governments, these policy programs failed by themselves to establish technology transfer activities successfully because of governmental short sightedness, lack of producer commitment and transferor-producer arm’s length relations. Over time, interaction among producers and producer cooperatives (recipients), universities (transferors) and intermediaries created a “technology transfer system”. The creation and professionalization of the cooperatives and intermediaries were key events allowing for creating a functioning technology transfer system. The evolution of the system was largely determined by the types of problems the main actors formulated and acted upon. Major problem diversified from being technology-related, to customer, market and distribution oriented. A main organizing principle of both solving and formulating these problems consisted of projects, which means the evolution can be characterized by sequences of projects addressing specific and changing problems over time. The cases are in in line with evolutionary theorizing and the paper concludes with general lessons for technology transfer from an evolutionary perspective.

    Factors affecting organisational acceptance of formal NPD processes2017Ingår i: International Journal of Innovation Management, ISSN 1363-9196, E-ISSN 1757-5877, Vol. 21, nr 2, artikel-id 1750011Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Formal new product development (NPD) processes have become an important tool in NPD management. However, our understanding of what makes formal NPD process implementation successful in terms of acceptance and performance is still limited. This paper contributes to an improved understanding of factors affecting the acceptance and use of formal NPD processes. Our results show that acceptance of formal NPD processes is determined by several factors, such as ease of use, transparency of discourse, continuous improvement, involvement of NPD actors, and the ability to bridge differences in thinking. Furthermore, that acceptance of formal NPD processes affects NPD performance positively. These results draw on data from a survey posted to employees working for nine large manufacturers of commercial vehicles worldwide. The results should encourage managers to consider and enhance the factors affecting acceptance. This could be done through using new media for publication to increase transparency and perceived ease of use of the NPD process. Further acceptance of the formal NPD process is increased if it mirrors an operative reality and if organisational structures for improvement of the process are implemented and inclusive to employees involved in NPD. © 2017 World Scientific Publishing Europe Ltd.

    SNSs Advertising Value2013Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (magisterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: Scholars considered advertising within the SNSs’ as one of the crucial integrated communication tools within the recent few years, due to the cost reduction, its efficiency in reaching the targeted market, in addition SNSs give wider access to new markets as they have high penetration value worldwide. Therefore, many companies consider the SNSs as an essential marketing tool in both local and international markets.

    Problem & Purpose: Due to the identified shortage in the earlier studies about measuring the Social Network Sites (SNSs) advertising value, the present authors found the reasons for why it is important to identify the factors affecting the SNSs users’ perception of SNSs’ ad value. The main purpose for the authors was to identify and explore the related factors to the SNSs’ ad value and to measure the SNSs’ users' perception to those factors.

    Theoretical Framework: The gap in the SNSs ad value theories as identified from the literature review, made the authors built their own model based on Duccoff’s (1996) model, which was later developed according to other literature related to the online ad value. Then ten hypotheses were created to test the correlation between the new model variables.

    Methodology & Analysis: In this exploratory research, the authors used the quantitative approach to collect the empirical data through distributing a survey to the university students in Halmstad University. To analyze the collected data both descriptive and correlation analyses were used, which helped to achieve the research purpose and to test the new model.

    Conclusion: By analyzing the empirical data the authors concluded that the SNSs’ users from the Swedish university students were more information oriented, males were more interactive with SNSs ad than females but in general both genders were more irritated and less trusting to the SNSs’ ads. The ten tested hypotheses proved the efficiency of the created model; even so, further research with different market segments may support the conceptual framework model as recommended by this research.

    Innovation-related Activities in a Low-tech Industry: A Study of the Electroplating and Surface Treatment Industry in Sweden2011Ingår i: Research on Technology, Innovation and Marketing Management 2009‐2011: Introducing the Research Area of Innovation Science / [ed] Sven-Åke Hörte, Halmstad: Högskolan i Halmstad , 2011, s. 55-81Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Given the complex and interdependent nature of innovation, it is a diverse phenomenon which takes place both in high‐ and low‐tech industries. The purpose of this paper is to increase our understanding about low‐tech industries’ innovation‐related activities and the specific capabilities of the companies that influence those. To achieve this purpose this study has performed an empirical analysis of the Swedish context of the Swedish Electroplating and Surface Treatment Industry (ESTI) and the characteristics of the companies operating in it. It investigated how the companies perceived their expertise and innovative activities in comparison with their main competitors. The main types of innovation the ESTI companieshad undertaken in a three‐year period (2004–2006) were studied. The research and development (R&D) and personnel qualification improvement expenditures were explored. The study looked into collaboration and the factors which companies perceived as important in order to collaborate. Our empirical evidence shows that innovation in the ESTI is shaped notby R&D but by other determinants, such as specific and rare capabilities in, for example, processing technologies, logistics, ability to spot, evaluate and exploit external knowledge as well as their ability to establish and sustain intercompany relationships. Strong relationships and integration with customers and suppliers emerge as pivotal for the innovation‐related activities in the ESTI. Additionally, close collaboration, facilitated by a strong intermediate institution, such as the Swedish Association of Surface Treatment Companies (Svensk YtbehandlingsFörening – SYF, also shape the innovation‐related activities in the ESTI.

    Collaboration and Innovation in Sweden and Bulgaria: A Study of a Mature Industry2011Ingår i: International Journal of Economic Sciences and Applied Research, ISSN 1791-5120, Vol. 4, nr 1, s. 121-151Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Nowadays, creation, exchange and transfer of knowledge (CETK) are turning into the most significant activity for companies. This article sheds light on Swedish and Bulgarian companies within a mature industry in terms of their knowledge flows for collaboration and innovation. Companies from the two countries as well as Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and large firms are compared. Quantitative and qualitative research methods are combined. A set of variables which have a positive relationship with the companies’ research and development (R&D) activities and innovation is developed. It was found out that the set of variables employed can predict the innovation and R&D of companies, laying of electrochemical and conversion surface treatments with functional and decorative purposes (ECSTFDP) for the sample. In both countries innovation and R&D are positively affected by places for knowledge exchange followed by collaboration factors and market situation. However, the factors for collaboration and interaction are the most important for increasing the innovation activities in companies with ECSTFDP, irrespective of size, age and country of operation. Moreover, the article reveals the vital role of the social element in the CETK, which is also emphasized in the knowledge management literature. Furthermore, it illustrates that companies are influenced by the number of factors in this collaboration and actively evaluate the trade-offs from it. Additionally, the dynamics of the market is setting the pace and degree of newness of innovation and R&D activities.

    Business Model Innovation – The Case of a Learning Network Approach to O&M Solutions in the Swedish Wind Energy Industry2016Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Gamesa, a Spanish company, is an original equipment manufacturer of wind energy turbines. Established in 1976, the company now faces greater global competition and an increased need to put greater focus on operations and maintenance solutions. Thus, Gamesa has to engage in business model innovation process. The case depicts how Gamesa joins a research project that uses a learning network approach in the initiation phase of business model innovation that leads to insights applicable to Gamesa's important Swedish customer – the utility company, Varberg Energi. The focus of the case is the early phase of business model innovation rather than the outcome (i.e. the new business model). Specifically, the case describes a workshop within the learning network where participants have the opportunity to better understand ...

    Business Model Innovation in the Chinese Wind Power Industry: The Case of Goldwind in the Emerging Economy of Africa2013Ingår i: Strategic Management Forum 2013: The Internationalization Strategy of Chinese Firms – Dialogue Between Entrepreneurs and Scholars, Euromed Management/KEDGE Business School – Shanghai Jiaotong University, Shanghai: Shanghai Jiaotong University , 2013, s. [29]-[29]Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    With the rise of emerging economy (EEs) as main engine of global growth, the intensified competition in the wind energy industry and internationalization to EEs, enterprises need to rethink and innovate their business models in order to succeed. The overall purpose of this article is to explore the drivers of business model innovation (BMI) in emerging-country multinational enterprises (EMNEs) in the context of an EE market, particularly in the wind energy industry and with special focus on inclusive business activities. For this purpose a single case study of Goldwind (China), one of the most important actors in the wind power industry, was applied. The results of this research show that to gain a competitive advantage in EEs requires capabilities to deal with the specific EEs related drivers of change: 1) fast growth and high demand combined with high uncertainty; 2) lower level of market-oriented socioeconomic development; 3) stronger governmental influence on the market; and 4) the need for simple, cheap and easy to maintain technologies. Therefore, it is important that managers position their enterprises in the EEs first as local players and only then as multinationals. Our study indicates that future research should focus on the main elements and the drivers of change that would shape BMI by adding new variables, specifically related to EE.

    Early Phases of Business Model Innovation: An Ideation Experience Workshop in the Classroom2015Ingår i: Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education, ISSN 1540-4595, E-ISSN 1540-4609, Vol. 13, nr 2, s. 177-195Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    As the mantra "innovate your business model or die" increases in popularity among practitioners and academics, so does the need for novel and feasible business models. In this article, we describe an ideation experience workshop, conducted in an undergraduate business course, in which students, guided by their lecturers and two industry representatives, developed business models in the early phases of a company's new blood alcohol level testing device. The students based their business models on the nine building blocks of a Business Model Canvas tool. The workshop confirmed that the three learning objectives were achieved as students acquired knowledge, created problem solutions, and presented results. The success of the workshop is attributable to the opportunity it gives students to work with an actual company, to experiment with business model innovation, and to learn from evaluators' feedback. © 2015 Decision Sciences Institute.

    Learning Networks for Knowledge Coproduction on Business Model Innovation in Wind Energy Industry2014Ingår i: Proceedings from British Academy of Management Conference, BAM 2014, Belfast: British Academy of Management , 2014Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Established firms find it difficult to innovate their business models. However, research suggests different approaches to overcome this. One of those is learning network. Research has also shown that learning networks can be used as an arena to coproduce knowledge between academia and industry. In this article, the authors provide an understanding of how learning networks can be used to improve the quality of knowledge coproduction on business model innovation and suggest a framework that can be used to facilitate knowledge coproduction related to business model innovation in the context of maintenance services for wind energy industry. The article suggests that learning networks are an appropriate approach not only to address practical problems but also to develop theoretical understanding of how organizational inertia related to business model innovation could be overcome and what are the benefits for the involved participants.

    Education for Sustainable Development: Business modelling for flourishing2018Ingår i: Journal of Cleaner Production, ISSN 0959-6526, E-ISSN 1879-1786, Vol. 172, s. 4383-4396Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    As companies and other organizations increasingly recognize society’s demand for greater social and environmental sustainability, university and college business schools have responded with new pedagogic approaches. Business schools have begun to offer courses in business models and business model innovation that focus not only on profit-normative goals but also on social and environmental goals. This paper describes an Experiential Workshop for university undergraduates in which the Service-Learning pedagogic approach is taken and Flourishing Business Canvas is applied as a tool for collaborative visual business modelling. In the Workshop, the students work with business model innovation for a biogas production cooperative of farmer-members in southern Sweden. The students take the role of problem-owners and problem-solvers as they co-create new business models ideas for the cooperative. The paper presents the students’ achievement of three Learning Objectives as they engage in meaningful, “real-world” simulations with a high degree of autonomy that allows them to combine their theoretical knowledge with practice. Implications for educators who wish to test the Experiential Workshop in their classrooms are proposed. The paper concludes with the suggestion that Education for Flourishing is a useful expansion of Education for Sustainable Development. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Centaurs and Entrepreneurs in the Bulgarian Equine Industry: The Case of Novex Horse Riding Club2011Ingår i: Case studies book on entrepreneurship and innovation and business creation and management / [ed] Svilen Kunev, Kostas Galanakis, Paraskevi Gkiourka, Ruse, Bulgaria: Ruse University , 2011, s. 178-185Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This case study is based on results from research and collaboration between Vaggeryd municipality, Sweden and Jönköping International Business School, Sweden. The last stage of this long-term research project was to increase understanding of entrepreneurship and equine-related business organizations in two different contexts (Bulgaria and UK). The equine industry is growing organically and is an unusual context in which to study entrepreneurship. This case is based on both primary and secondary data, resulting from extensive empirical research and displays the tradition of horse breeding in Bulgaria, together with some contemporary aspects of the sector. The focus is on one particular Bulgarian equine business from the Ruse region of Bulgaria – the Novex horse riding club and its owner Mr. Emil Rusev. However, it also incorporates the points of view of the other studied Bulgarian equine entrepreneurs (Centaurs). The attitudes towards horse riding, strategies for attracting customers and some steps for overcoming obstacles in Emil’s entrepreneurial activity are presented. Possible options for future development of the Novex club and for the whole equine industry are discussed.

    The effects of entrepreneurial posture on international activities in light of emerging globalization2004Ingår i: Crossroads of entrepreneurship / [ed] Guido Corbetta, Morten Huse & Davide Ravasi, Springer, 2004, s. 127-145Kapitel i bok, del av antologi (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Conclusion:

    This paper has contributed to research on entrepreneurship and internationalization by conducting a study of the impact of a firm’s entrepreneurial posture on its international activities. The findings suggest that a firm’s entrepreneurial posture may have positive effects on its international activities, but also indicate that international activities are not as entrepreneurial as it used to be as markets have become increasingly integrated and global.

    Research and literature on internationalization predict an acceleration of international business activities in the 21st century as firms increasingly seem to pursue more active strategies that involve international activities (McDougall and Oviatt, 2000; OECD, 1997; Reynolds, 1997). The near future consequently provides rich opportunities for continued studies in the intersection between entrepreneurship and a firm’s international activities.

    Towards a Model of Conscientious Corporate Brands: a Canadian Study2013Ingår i: The journal of business & industrial marketing, ISSN 0885-8624, E-ISSN 2052-1189, Vol. 28, nr 8, s. 687-695Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This paper attempts to validate a conceptual model for conscientious corporate brands (CCB) by exploring environmental and climate change issues together with perceptions of the internal and external effectiveness of corporate codes of ethics as dimensions of CCBs. Design/methodology/approach: By surveying organizations, the paper attempts to extend and validate previous research in ethical branding by proposing an additional empirically grounded conceptual model of "the conscientious dimension" of corporate brands. Research limitations/implications: The CCB model was tested on a sample of small-, medium- and large-sized companies in Canada, which may indicate less generalizability to larger companies or in other countries and contextual settings. Practical implications: The CCB-framework provides insights into the relationship between the natural environment, climate change and corporate codes of ethics, which organizational managers might relate to their organization. Originality/value: This empirical study extends previous research by studying the willingness among business managers to support aspects of conscientious corporate brands (CCBs) in business-to-business relationships: when considering the impact of their brands on the natural environment and climate change, and when considering their corporate codes of ethics. Such findings imply that ethical conscientiousness is not just a rider to brand value; rather, it is an integral dimension in the manufacturer-supplier relationship. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

    Antecedents and Postcedents of Satisfaction in Business Relationships in Canada2011Ingår i: International Journal of Logistics Economics and Globalisation, ISSN 1741-5373, E-ISSN 1741-5381, Vol. 3, nr 4, s. 189-209Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports the findings of an investigation of whether trust and commitment influence satisfaction, and whether satisfaction then influences specific investments, opportunism, and formalisation. Using data collected in a survey of Canadian managers and executives, a model derived from marketing theory and previous empirical research was tested. The model includes both relationship marketing concepts and transaction cost theory concepts, an approach rarely encountered in existing studies. Satisfaction in an exchange relationship is formed by keeping promises in an iterative process, and serves as a safeguard against possible future risks (e.g., opportunism). Finally, we discuss the limitations of the study.

    Product Development in SMEs: A literature review2008Ingår i: International Journal of Technology Intelligence and Planning (IJTIP), ISSN 1740-2832, E-ISSN 1740-2840, E-ISSN 1740-2840, Vol. 4, nr 3, s. 299-325Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Product Development (PD) in Small and medium-sized Firms (SMEs) is a long-neglected research area, and little cumulative work has been conducted previously. The purpose of this paper is to provide a first overview of the area of PD in SMEs. In doing so, we draw upon a sample of 149 peer-reviewed research papers selected from an initial sample of 5694 papers. The review provides tentative answers to issues such as the analytical and methodological approaches of the papers, which topics or areas of research have been focused on by previous scholars, and what kinds of topics that are well covered.

    Success factors for eco-innovations and other innovations2008Ingår i: International Journal of Innovation and Sustainable Development, ISSN 1740-8822, E-ISSN 1740-8830, E-ISSN 1740-8830, Vol. 3, nr 3/4, s. 301-327Artikel, forskningsöversikt (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to identify the factors which can contribute to the explanation of why eco-innovations have a poorer market development than other innovations. We based our study on 285 innovations that moved on to the finals in three Swedish innovation contests: the Environmental Technology Competition (ETC), the Venture Cup (VC) and the Innovation Cup (IC). We analysed four groups of factors related respectively to (1) the innovator, (2) the innovation, (3) the development process and (4) certain aspects of the surroundings with importance to development. One conclusion is that there are many factors in which eco-innovations differ from other innovations. The eco-group is older, mainly male, with lower technical or other education; they are more innovative and their network has a stronger connection to family. Eco-innovations are less geared towards industrial customers and currently have no major competition, according to the innovators. The development process for these innovations is different from that of other innovations; the time that has been invested in the process is much shorter and the access to risk capital and contacts with business angels are rare. The eco-innovators view the general surroundings more positively than others.

    Är miljöinnovationer mindre framgångsrika än andra innovationer?2007Bok (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten är skriven som en slutrapportering av projektet ”Är eko-innovationer mindre framgångsrika än andra innovationer?”. I rapporten diskuteras olika sätt att se på hur man kan bedöma innovationers utveckling och marknadsframgång. Den generella frågan som ställs i undersökningen är om de innovationer som är miljöinriktade har en sämre marknadsutveckling än andra innovationer. Där en sådan skillnad finns försöker man identifiera de faktorer som kan bidra till att förklara varför. Området är av extra intresse idag då kapitalet nu på allvar börjar hitta till miljöinnovationerna. I USA har området CleanTech under 2006 snabbt klättrat upp till tredje största investeringsområde för riskkapital. I Sverige är det än så länge trögare för riskkapitalet och miljöinnovatörerna att mötas och denna rapport ger en ögonblicksbild av förklaringen varför. De innovationer som studerats har valts ut bland de som gått till final i tävlingarna MiljöInnovation, Venture Cup och Innovation Cup under de år som tävlingarna genomförts.

    A business sustainability model: a European case study2012Ingår i: The journal of business & industrial marketing, ISSN 0885-8624, E-ISSN 2052-1189, Vol. 27, nr 2, s. 142-151Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: "Business sustainability" refers to the total effort of a company - including its demand and supply chain networks - to reduce the impact on the Earth's life- and eco-systems. The objective of this paper is to describe a business sustainability model based upon a case study of a European manufacturer.

    Design/methodology/approach: A case study approach was applied describing the efforts of business sustainability in the demand and supply chain networks of a Norwegian office chair producer. It is based upon a series of semi-structured in-depth interviews with top executives of the company as well as observations and content analyses of internal and external documents about the company's efforts of business sustainability.

    Findings: The case study shows that business sustainability is not about doing just one thing, but that a multitude of simultaneous efforts (e.g. actors, resources and activities) should be in place. Furthermore, business sustainability is not only about a company's own business operations, but its whole demand and supply chain networks which need to be included and taken into consideration.

    Research limitations/implications: The case study in focus is limited to just one company's effort of business sustainability and its demand and supply chain networks. It provides a business sustainability model that offers opportunities for further research.

    Practical implications: Focusing on the corporate impact of the natural environment can be highly profitable. Business sustainability and by extension the carbon footprint of demand and supply chain networks is becoming a criterion in the decision-making process of customers across industries. Business sustainability is a concern to everybody in society as the indicatives of climate change and global warming become more evident and troublesome. No one can have missed the fact that the weather is becoming more extreme, causing damage around the globe.

    Originality/value: The authors argue that research into business sustainability needs at this stage of development to be inductive rather than deductive - it may be an irreversible mistake to try to re-package existing theory into business sustainability, as climate change prediction and the poor condition of the Earth have not been fully understood or comprised in previous theory. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

    A triple bottom line construct and reasons for implementing sustainable business practices in companies and their business networks2015Ingår i: Corporate Governance : The International Journal of Effective Board Performance, ISSN 1472-0701, E-ISSN 1758-6054, Vol. 15, nr 4, s. 427-443Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this study is to test a Triple Bottom Line (TBL)-construct as well as to describe the TBL-reasons for implementing sustainable business practices in companies and their business networks. This study explores how linking these seemingly disparate pillars of sustainability may be facilitated through a TBL construct. The notion of sustainable business practices has been evolving and is increasingly understood to encompass considerations of economic viability, as well as environmental sustainability and social responsibility.

    Design/methodology/approach – The research is quantitative in nature, exploring and analysing how companies in different Norwegian industries implement and manage sustainable business practices based on TBL. The survey results are reported here.

    Findings – The relevance of TBL to different aspects of sustainable business practices is outlined. The study generally supports the view that a heightened propensity for sustainable business practices ensures that organisations are better equipped for meeting the challenge of integrating TBL in companies and their business networks.

    Research limitations/implications – The study tested a construct of TBL in the context of sustainable business practices. It may be incorporated in further research in relation to other constructs. Suggestions for further research are proposed.

    Practical implications – Useful for practitioners to get insights into TBL-reasons for implementing business-sustainable practices in companies and their business networks. It may also be valuable to assess the general status of business-sustainable practices in a company and their business networks.

    Originality/value – Linking two traditionally separate and encapsulated areas of research, namely, the area of business sustainable practices and the area of TBL. The current study has contributed to a TBL-construct in relation to other constructs in measurement and structural models. It has also contributed to provide insights of priority into the main reasons to implement the elements of TBL within companies and their business networks. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

    Barriers to Adoption of Mobile banking: Evidence from Ghana2013Ingår i: International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences, ISSN 2308-3816, E-ISSN 2222-6990, Vol. 3, nr 7, s. 356-370Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this research is to investigate the perceived barriers to adoption of mobile banking among consumers, and to assess whether the usage of M-Banking is constraint on the basis of different demographic characteristics such as age, income level, mobile phone usage “experience” and marital status. Data were collected using convenient sampling via self-administered questionnaire in a large university in the Ashanti region of Ghana. A total of usable 189 responses were collected from non-users of mobile banking and retained for analysis using SPSS version 16. The main reasons for rejecting M-Banking were explored using simple descriptive analysis, while chi-square tests were used to assess differences between socio-demographic variables and the rejection factors. The result indicates that majority of respondents do not use any kind of mobile banking service. The four main reasons for rejecting M-Banking were: M-banking requires knowledge and learning; M-banking attract additional banking charges; poor telecommunication network; consumer preference for traditional means of banking instead of mobile enabled banking services. The practical implications of this research is the revealing of the main barriers to Mobile banking adoption and suggesting of appropriate marketing strategies to overcome the obstacles to mobile banking adoption.

    Digital Supply Chain: Survey of the Literature2018Ingår i: International Journal of Business Research and Management, ISSN 2180-2165, E-ISSN 2180-2165, Vol. 9, nr 1, s. 47-61Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose- The aim of this research is to provide accumulated body of prior knowledge on digital supply chain (DSC) and provides opportunities for further research.

    Design/Methodology/approach-This study presents a literature review of 60 peer-reviewed articles from 2000-2017.

    Findings-Based on the analysis of the 60 articles, the paper finds that the main drivers of digital supply chain consist of technologies, digitization, integration, collaboration and coordination. The analysis reveals that the most dominant research method used was survey-type research (40.0 percent). The conclusion is that there is the need for researchers to employ qualitative case to empirically examine the development of DSC, this may lead to high level conceptualisation and theoretical development in the field of DSC. In addition, the analysis revealed that 73.3 percent of the articles failed to discuss any theoretical foundation. Thus, this review provides foundation for conceptualization and theory development in the field of digital supply chain.

    Originality/value-There has been some reviews of supply chain management in general; but there are little attempts scholars to synthesize extant literature on digital supply chain. Thus, the aim of this research is to provide accumulated body of prior knowledge of digital supply chain and provides opportunities for further research.

    Examining Innovation Capability In A Supply Chain Context2018Ingår i: International Journal of Business Research and Management, ISSN 2180-2165, E-ISSN 2180-2165, Vol. 9, nr 1, s. 62-71Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The current competitive business environment demands that firms are able to integrate operational capabilities of their supply chain members in order to develop, produce and deliver offerings at low cost and high quality. In order to understand innovation capability in a supply chain context, this paper provides an in-depth analysis of ‘Comfort Audio’, a leading company in medical technology in Sweden, which show incredible ability to develop innovative solutions and medical products over the years. A single case study was adopted in this study, which enabled indepth analysis of the case company. Findings, highlight, innovation capability factors is made up of: idea management, interactive learning, collaboration and idea implementation. In addition, consultants were found to be one of the key supply chain members contributing to the firm’s innovation capability. The main theoretical contribution of the study is that innovation capability of a firm has been found to go beyond the internal capabilities that a focal firm owns or possesses, but rather through the access and utilisation of external actors’ resources and capabilities, as a result of exchange relationships with the supply chain members.

    Examining the Research output of Lecturers in Selected Public Universities in Ghana2017Ingår i: 1st International Conference on Competency-Based Training and Research / [ed] Reynolds Okai, 2017, s. 208-215Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study has been to examine the research output of lecturers in public universities in Ghana. A systematic literature review (SLR) was thus conducted to examine (a) productive researchers (b) subject area that attracts more research and (c) the type of research outlets for the teaching staff.  Scopus electronic database was searched using the keywords; “University of Education winneba”, “Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology”, “University of Cape Coast” and “University of Ghana, Legon”. Peer-reviewed articles written in English language were considered for the study. The analysis revealed that medicine, agricultural, biological sciences and environmental science contributed to 49% out of 27 subject areas analysed. The conclusion is that researchers in other fields of study need to increase their research output. In addition, As expected the analysis revealed that article constituted the largest type of publication (6477 papers, 85%)  and conference paper constitutes the fourth largest publication (243 papers, 3 %). The conclusion is that there is need for more conference paper presentation. Attending conference enables networking, collaborative research, and access to new knowledge, research topics and trends in a particular field of study. The general trend in number of publications indicates that publications from the four universities have been on the increase since 2003.

    Innovation Capability: A Systematic Review and Research Agenda2016Ingår i: Interdisciplinary Journal of Information, Knowledge, and Management, ISSN 1555-1229, E-ISSN 1555-1237, Vol. 11, s. 235-260Artikel, forskningsöversikt (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Innovation capability is a growing and significant area of academic research. However, there is little attempt to provide a cumulative overview of this phenomenon. The purpose of this systematic review is to synthesize peer reviewed articles published in the area to develop a conceptual framework and to aid future research.

    Design/Methodology/Approach: The paper adopted a systematic review of literature on innovation capability. The final screening generated 51 articles from 30 journals from 2000-2015.

    Findings: The examination and synthesis of the theoretical and the empirical articles show that (1) the authors applied narrow range of conceptual and theoretical foundations; (2) innovation capability is being investigated mostly at the firm level for about 90% of the articles, and marginally about 5% at network (supply) chain level; (3) the authors define innovation capability in different ways and use diverse set of dimensions to measure innovation capability; (4) there is potential for future research across firms in innovation management disciplines.

    Practical implications: The review contributes to theory development in organizational capability literature in general. Managers wishing to innovate need to examine critically and integrate some of the innovation capability dimensions proposed in this paper.

    Originality: The review is unique in the sense that it provides conceptualisation of innovation capability framework.

    Innovation Capability and Product Innovation Performance: The case of low-tech manufacturing firms2016Ingår i: European Business Review, ISSN 0955-534X, E-ISSN 1758-7107Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - Despite the growing interest in innovation of low-tech herbal manufacturing industry from strategic and policy standpoints, little empirical research exists on their innovation capability. The purpose of this study is to explore innovation capability and its effect on product innovation performance of small low-tech herbal manufacturing firms. Design/methodology/approach - Innovation capability has been important to large firms in general and to some small firms in particular in order to address the issue of survival and profitability. A case study method is adopted to explore the process of innovation capability of low-tech manufacturing firms. Findings - Analysis of the two case studies reveals that collaborating with institutional actors, customers, suppliers and other competitors in interactive learning, coupled with idea management and idea implementation, has been factors that has influenced innovation capability and the case firms’ product innovation performance (i.e. profitability, market share, sales, return on assets, and return on investment). Research limitations/implications - First, in this study, we analysed two homogenous companies from the same geographical context. It could be fruitful to extend the scope to include firms in other geographical contexts and different industries, where the theoretical arguments advanced in this study can be tested further. Originality/Value - Although the research field of innovation capability is growing lately; few attempts have been made to explore innovation capability and its effect on product innovation performance of small low-tech herbal manufacturing firms.

    Innovation capability and product innovation performance: the case of low-tech manufacturing firms2019Ingår i: European Business Review, ISSN 0955-534X, E-ISSN 1758-7107, Vol. 31, nr 5, s. 646-668Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: Despite the growing interest in innovation within low-tech herbal manufacturing from strategic and policy standpoints, little empirical research exists on their innovation capability. The purpose of this study is to explore innovation capability and its effect on product innovation performance of small low-tech herbal manufacturing companies.

    Design/methodology/approach: Innovation capability has been important to large companies in general, and to some small companies in particular, to address the issues of survival and profitability. A case study method is adopted to explore the process of innovation capability of low-tech manufacturing companies.

    Findings: Analysis of the two case studies reveals that collaborating with institutional agents, customers, suppliers and competitors in interactive learning, coupled with idea management and idea implementation, are factors that have influenced innovation capability. Also, cognitive ability and social interaction were identified to be crucial for innovation capability.

    Research limitations/implications: This study analysed two homogenous companies from the same geographical area. It could be fruitful to extend the scope to include companies in other geographical areas and different industries, where the theoretical arguments advanced in this study can be tested further.

    Originality/value: Although the volume of research into innovation capability is growing, few attempts have been made to explore innovation capability and its effect on product innovation performance within small low-tech herbal manufacturing companies.

    Innovation Capability within a Supply Chain Context2018Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    A firm’s supply chain faces challenges relating to reducing operational cost while at the same time producing innovative products and services to meet consumers’ current and potential demand. One important phenomenon in the field of innovation research is the concept of innovation capability. The purpose of this thesis is to empirically explore innovation capability as a firm interacts with its supply chain members. In order to achieve the above stated purpose, the thesis attempted to answer the overarching research question: How does a focal firm’s interaction with its supply chain members affect its innovation capability?

    To answer the research question, a multiple method approach was adopted. This consists of two qualitative case studies, conceptual analysis, a quantitative study of a sample of 117 managers and systematic literature review (SLR). First; we used the systematic literature review (SLR) method to identify important innovation capability factors and theories applied in innovation capability studies. Second, multiple case studies were used to further investigate innovation capability in a supply chain context. Third, quantitative survey-method was used to explore innovation capability measures in the context of the supply chain.

    Five individual papers are presented in this thesis. The findings are summarised and presented in the cover (“kappa”) of the thesis. The findings revealed that focal firms’ innovation capability was influenced as a result of a focal firm’s interaction with its supply chain members. In addition, technological embeddedness influences innovation capability of the focal firms.

    Measurement of innovation capability in supply chain: an exploratory study2016Ingår i: International Journal of Innovation Science, ISSN 1757-2223, E-ISSN 1757-2231, Vol. 8, nr 4, s. 331-349Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore the development of innovation capability construct measures in the context of supply chain and to objectively identify the key dimensions for stimulating focal firms' innovativeness.

    Design/methodology/approach -The scale items for this research were obtained from extant literature. The data were collected from homogenous sample of 117 Ghanaian middle level managers (respondents). Exploratory factor analysis was used to identify the main dimensions of innovation capability. Based on the statistical analysis, four dimensions were obtained - idea management, idea implementation, collaboration and learning -And the convergent validity, discriminant validity, nomological validity and reliability tests indicate that the scales are valid and reliable.

    Findings:Four dimensions (factors) of innovation capability were identified from the exploratory factor analysis. These dimensions were labelled as idea management, idea implementation, collaboration and learning. The results indicate that the integration of the dimensions of innovation capability may stimulate a focal firm's innovativeness.

    Research limitations/implications: First, the measurement scale might not capture all the important dimensions of innovation capability. Second, the judgmental sampling used in this study means that the result cannot be generalised to the entire supply chain population, third, the sample was drawn from one geographical location using non-probability sampling technique.

    Practical implications: The measures provide supply chain managers with a better approach of understanding the innovation capability in their supply chain. For instance, the measurement of supply chain's innovation capability should help supply chain managers to determine the important innovation areas that need attention most and to permit them to respond to challenges posed by any kind of innovation capability dimension that needs to be enhanced.

    Originality/value -The unique contribution of this paper is the development innovation capability measurement scale in the context of supply chain.

    The Role of Innovation Capability on Internationalisation of Low-Tech Manufacturing Firms2018Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this study is to explore innovation capability and its effect on internationalisation of small low-tech herbal manufacturing firms, thereby also contributing to theory development in the subject area. 

    Design/methodology/approach: A single case study method is adopted to explore the process of innovation capability of low-tech manufacturing for internationalisation process. 

    Findings: Our result indicates that in low-tech herbal manufacturing innovation capability has been crucial for the company’s internationalization. The uniqueness of the products is derived from mutual learning, collaboration, most importantly team work pertaining in the organisation. The findings in this study support the notion that the development of innovation capability in a natural resource-based sector could be pursued as a strategy for internationalisation in countries like Ghana. 

    Research limitations/implications: 

    In this study we attempted to examine low-tech manufacturing firms’ innovation capability and how it affects internationalisation. Our study, like any study, suffers from some limitations. First, the data is based on a single firm. Ideally we would like to include data from few more firms. However, getting data from innovative companies is a difficult task. Future research may consider multiple case studies within the same sector or across different sectors. 

    Originality/Value: Although the research field of innovation capability is growing lately, few attempts have been made to explore innovation capability and its effect on internationalisation process of low-tech manufacturing firms.
