    With a little help of my friend: Joint innovation in service firm-manufacturing firm alliances

    Last week, my colleague Robin Pesch also gave a presentation on the topic of innovation management in alliances between manufacturing companies and service providers at the 75th annual meeting of the Academy of Management in Vancouver. It’s a joined work of Robin, me, my professor, Mrs. Bouncen, and Mr. Laudien.

    Our study focuses at analyzing the development of hybrid solutions in alliances between service firms and manufacturers. We especially aim at understanding how joint innovation can be improved in such a type of alliance. First, we are interested in how a service firm’s entrepreneurial orientation influences the joint innovation in service firm/manufacturing firm alliances. Second, we look for the moderating effect of different business logics and routines on the relation between entrepreneurial orientation and joint innovation within the alliance. Results indicate that joint innovation in the alliance is significantly affected by the entrepreneurial orientation of the service firm. A shared business logic moderates the effect entrepreneurial orientation has on joint innovation. We show that alliances among service firms and manufacturers provide a potential to enhance a firms’ portfolio of offerings without facing a need to fundamentally reorganize their value chain activities.

    Last week, my colleague Robin Pesch gave a presentation on the topic of interorganisational learning at the 75th annual meeting of the Academy of Management in Vancouver. It’s a joined work of Robin, me and Christian Lehmann.

    Our study clarifies how two configurations of inter-organizational learning of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in alliances with buyer firm influences product innovation performance. Our survey on 459 SMEs in three industries shows that the two configurations, which we frame as inlearning and knowledge combination, have different impacts on innovation performance in the alliance, measured by speed to market and product innovativeness. Inspired by previous research and preliminary interviews with managers, we further analyze how the coordination desire of the buyer firm during the alliance’s progress, visible in directives affects innovation in the alliance. Directives set by the buyer firm during the course of the project shape how inter-organizational learning configurations influence innovation performance. Inlearning has a greater influence on product innovation when SMEs experiences forceful buyer directives. On the contrary, knowledge combination is less effective when SMEs experience forceful directives of their buyers.

    Entrepreneurial Orientation in Supply Chain Partnerships – A Driving Force for Innovation

    Last week, my colleague Robin Pesch gave a presentation on the topic of entrepreneurial orientation and interorganisational learning at the 74th annual meeting of the Academy of Management in Philadelphia. It’s a joined work of Robin, me and our professor, Mrs. Bouncken.

    This paper investigates how a firm that is situated within a supply chain partnership can influence its performance in terms of new product superiority by being entrepreneurially orientated. Empirical results of 171 firms show that entrepreneurial orientation contributes positively to new product superiority. If firms can learn from their downstream supply chain partners, they can directly achieve increases in performance and further strengthen the positive influence of an entrepreneurial orientation on new product superiority. Surprisingly, the merits of entrepreneurial orientation on new product superiority decline under three conditions: greater technological uncertainty, increasing age of the firm, and low learning from supply chain partners.

    Accounting for Innovation zwischen Hyperkonnektiviät und Neuheit: Wie sich die Erfolgschancen von radikalen Serviceinnovationen erhöhen lassen

    Accounting for Innovation hat am Freitag mit der Frühjahrstagung der Erich-Gutenberg-Arbeitsgemeinschaft Köln e.V. seine zweite Konferenz bestritten. Gezielt haben Markus Grottke und ich uns im Rahmen des Vortrags mit der Anwendung des Konzeptes auf Dienstleistungsinnovationen auseinandergesetzt. Ziel war mit unserem neuen Controllingsystem, bestehend aus den Messdimensionen Hyperkonnektivität und Neuheitsgrad, zu untersuchen, wie sich die Erfolgschancen von radikalen Serviceinnovationen erhöhen lassen. Unterstützt wurden wir bei diesem Teilprojekt durch meinen Vater als dritten Autor und Vortragenden.
