  2. Innovation and Entrepreneurship

    Innovation and Entrepreneurship

    Edited by Ruta Aidis, Friederike Welter
    Little is known about innovative and successful enterprises in the countries that, until 1990, were part of the Soviet Union. Most previous research has extensively covered barriers to entrepreneurship and innovation that exist in these countries, some of which undoubtedly represent a hostile and harsh environment for any entrepreneurial activity. In this book, a different perspective is introduced. The focus is shifted to the innovative potential that these environments provide, demonstrating how entrepreneurs have been able to convert possibilities in hostile business environments into successful businesses. Through this collection of six in-depth case studies, the authors illustrate how successful and innovative businesses were able to develop in countries such as Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyztan, Moldova and Ukraine. Each case study presents an overview of the country’s key economic indicators and the role of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the economy, followed by the presentation of a case study of a successful SME.

  6. Firm Mobility and Organizational Networks

    Firm Mobility and Organizational Networks

    Joris Knoben
    Joris Knoben illustrates that the number of firm relocations has grown steadily and considerably over recent decades, and at the same time, relationships between organizations have become more important to firm performance. It is often argued that such relationships require geographical stability, and the author therefore explores how these two seemingly contradictory observations can be reconciled. Insights from economic geography and organization science are utilized to develop a multidisciplinary firm-level perspective on the causes and consequences of firm relocation. Learn More

    Edited by Rolf Wüstenhagen, Jost Hamschmidt, Sanjay Sharma, Mark Starik
    In recent years our understanding of corporate sustainability has moved from exploitation to exploration, from corporate environmental management to sustainable entrepreneurship, and from efficiency to innovation.

Presenting both conceptual and empirical research, this fascinating book addresses how we can combine environmental and social sustainability with economic sustainability in order to produce innovative new business models.

  8. Industrial Innovation and Firm Performance

    Industrial Innovation and Firm Performance

    Mario I. Kafouros
    It has long been recognized that R&D plays a key role in the global battle for technological leadership. However, due to intense competition and rivals’ imitations, firms are not always able to reap rewards from their innovations. Mario Kafouros theoretically and empirically examines the impacts of innovation and scientific knowledge on the productivity performance of multinational corporations, and the conditions under which companies benefit from their technological discoveries. The book also investigates the extent to which the research efforts of other companies can contribute to a firm’s productivity, and how multinationals build on external inventions, ideas and knowledge.

    Terence Tsai, Bor-Shiuan Cheng

    Information Technology and Small Businesses

    Andrea Ordanini
    This book investigates the antecedents and consequences of information technology adoption among small and medium sized enterprises. Following the well publicized ‘Internet bubble’, the rate of adoption of such technologies – especially of Internet-based solutions – has slowly changed among small firms, leading to a very mixed picture. Whilst a significant number of these small firms are still excluded from such technologies, others show very complex patterns of adoption and implementation. Learn More

    Entrepreneurial Strategy

    Lucio Cassia, Michael Fattore, Stefano Paleari
    Entrepreneurial Strategy aims to revive the debate on the role of entrepreneurship in the context of mature business. The authors contend that mature and declining industries are increasingly dominated by the negative pressure of external factors, but they are also embedded with a potential renewed role for entrepreneurship because the industry forces as a whole tend to break up, leaving space for strategic business innovation.
