  5. Business Innovation and Disruption in the Music Industry

    Business Innovation and Disruption in the Music Industry

    Edited by Patrik Wikström, Robert DeFillippi
    Over the past fifteen years the music industry has experienced a disruptive process of digital transformation that has reshaped most aspects of the industry; in 2015 the contours of a “new music economy” have begun to emerge. The structure and mechanics of these evolutionary processes vary considerably between continents, and this book examines these processes within Europe, America and Asia. The contributors offer a range of theoretical perspectives, as well as empirical findings from the social sciences and business, as well as the media industries. They offer a holistic understanding of the forces shaping the new music economy, and shed some light on the impact of these forces on the ways in which music is created, aggregated and distributed, and on the economic and social consequences for industry producers and consumers.

  7. Global Entrepreneurship, Institutions and Incentives

    Global Entrepreneurship, Institutions and Incentives

    Zoltán J. Ács
    This book presents some of Zoltán J. Ács’ most important contributions since the turn of the the new millennium, with a particular intellectual focus on the knowledge spillover theory of entrepreneurship. This approach was shaped by three major events: the rapid globalization that occurred in the first decade of the 21st century; research on the role institutions have played in economic development during the past few decades; and the spread of entrepreneurial activity around the world following the collapse of communism at the end of the 20th century. This entrepreneurial activity has given rise to many questions of theory, measurement and policy. Learn More

    The Dynamics of Interfirm Relationships

    Yongdo Kim
    The goal of this pathbreaking volume is to relativize the experience of Japanese industries in terms of both location and time, exploring its similarities and differences with other countries and its unique relationship with the “global standard” of company performance set by US firms. By examining the intertwining of the organizational and market principles in interfirm relationships, this book tries to overcome the weaknesses of existing studies by looking beyond organizational principles, overturning stereotypes, and covering a wide range of industries.

  10. Mapping National Innovation Ecosystems

    Mapping National Innovation Ecosystems

    Amnon Frenkel, Shlomo Maital
    Increasingly, researchers and policymakers alike recognize that innovations are generated by complex and dynamic national ecosystems that include government, industry, universities and schools. Because these systems differ by country and are strongly influenced by culture, effective policy and research strategies require a systems approach, in which policy consensus is built on a clear understanding of how each nation’s innovation ecosystem functions. Scholars and students of innovation and management will find this book an invaluable resource, as will innovation policymakers across the world. Learn More

  18. Managing Open Innovation

    Managing Open Innovation

    André Spithoven, Peter Teirlinck, Dirk Frantzen
    Open innovation is about firms’ external relations with other firms and organisations. It is a topic which has attracted an immense amount of attention, but which has also been heavily criticised due to the diversity of the ideas and fuzziness of its key concepts. To date, the bulk of the literature on open innovation draws on case study material to illustrate the operation of firms in an anecdotal way. By contrast, this book examines open innovation practices by using large-scale datasets and stresses their impact on firm performance. The authors examine four key issues: differences between firms in open innovation practices, public funding to enhance external relations, R&D outsourcing of firms, and the role of human resources in R&D and innovation.
