Strategic Objectives of Corporate Venture Capital as a Tool for Open Innovation

Pinkow, Felix ; Iversen, Jasper (2020-11-18)

Corporations are confronted with challenges adjusting to changing technologies and markets. Seeking innovations externally through open innovation is a possible approach to go beyond the internal development of innovations. One practice of open innovation to assimilate external knowledge is corporate venture capital (CVC), meaning minority investments in entrepreneurial ventures by incumbent fi...

How Can Blockchain Technology Accelerate Energy Efficiency Interventions? A Use Case Comparison

Schletz, Marco ; Cardoso, Ana ; Prata Dias, Gabriela ; Salomo, Søren (2020-11-10)

This paper qualitatively evaluates the application of blockchain technology for three energy efficiency use cases. To achieve the Sustainable Development Agenda, energy efficiency improvements have to double by 2030. However, the adoption of energy efficiency interventions is slow due to several market barriers. Blockchain technology is a nascent technology with the potential to address these b...

How entrepreneurial orientation can leverage innovation project portfolio management

Kock, Alexander ; Gemünden, Hans Georg (2020-07-07)

Innovation project portfolio management (IPPM) is a key task in R&D management because this decision‐making process determines which R&D projects should be undertaken and how R&D resources are allocated. Previous research has developed a good understanding of the role of IPPM in R&D strategy implementation and of successful IPPM practices. But the fundamental orientations that drive the strateg...

Leadership for Organisational Adaptability: How Enabling Leaders Create Adaptive Space

Schulze, Jonas Hermann ; Pinkow, Felix (2020-06-28)

Organisational adaptability is the ability of an organisation to recognise the need to change and seize opportunities in dynamic environments. In an increasingly complex world, leadership must pay attention to dynamic, distributed, and contextual aspects in order to position their organisations for adaptability. The theory of dynamic capabilities constitutes a central concept for the requiremen...

Blockchain Application for the Paris Agreement Carbon Market Mechanism—A Decision Framework and Architecture

Schletz, Marco ; Franke, Laura A. ; Salomo, Søren (2020-06-22)

This paper evaluates the suitability of blockchain technology for the Article 6.2 carbon market mechanism of the Paris Agreement. The bottom-up approach of the Paris Agreement causes challenges to the robust accounting of mitigation outcomes and information asymmetry, both of which result from a high number of heterogeneous emission accounting systems. Blockchain is an innovative technology tha...

Crowdfunding: the moderating role of the funding goal on factors influencing project success

Pinkow, Felix ; Emmerich, Philip (2020)

Purpose: The factors determining the success of crowdfunding projects is one of the central aspects for crowdfunding researchers. Most quantitative approaches recognize the amount of funds targeted as an important control. However, little is known about the impact of the funding goal on other factors that impact crowdfunding success. We hypothesize that the effect of crowdfunding success factor...

Designing a Blockchain Model for the Paris Agreement’s Carbon Market Mechanism

Franke, Laura ; Schletz, Marco ; Salomo, Søren (2020-02-03)

This paper examines the benefits and constraints of applying blockchain technology for the Paris Agreement carbon market mechanism and develops a list of technical requirements and soft factors as selection criteria to test the feasibility of two different blockchain platforms. The carbon market mechanism, as outlined in Article 6.2 of the Paris Agreement, can accelerate climate action by enabl...

Mueller, Thilo A. ; Georg Gemünden, Hans (2009-04-24)

Purpose – Developments in the software industry have shown the need for sustainable and effective management strategies, especially for new ventures. Entrepreneurship literature suggests marketing to be one of the pivotal predictors of business performance. Previous empirical studies have shown the importance of social interaction and team work quality for new venture performance. The purpose o...

Predicting the future of additive manufacturing: A Delphi study on economic and societal implications of 3D printing for 2030

Jiang, Ruth ; Kleer, Robin ; Piller, Frank T. (2017)

Additive manufacturing (colloquially: 3D printing) is a highly discussed topic. Previous research has argued that this technology not only has profound effects on manufacturing businesses but also on society, which demands new corporate strategies and policies alike. Thus, the development of reliable future scenarios is key for strategic planning and decision making as well as for future resear...
