  • Impact of dynamic capability on success of entrepreneurs: A study of small and medium manufacturers   Order a copy of this article
    by Ashok Sar 
    Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of dynamic capability (sensing, seizing and transforming) on performance (market, customer, financial and innovation) of small and medium manufacturers. I developed a conceptual framework linking dynamic capability and firm performance based on extensive review of literature. Data on the observed variable from 403 respondents were analysed using structural equation modelling in AMOS. The study established a strong relationship between transforming capability and innovation, customer and financial performance. The study highlights the perspective of firm performance and dynamic capability for small and medium manufacturers. It also brought out the structural aspects of the associated aspects.

  • Technological innovation capability of business incubators and digital entrepreneurship performance in an innovation ecosystem   Order a copy of this article
    by Selma Oliveira, Sandro Trento 
    Abstract: While the potential benefits of technological innovation capabilities have been widely reported, there is a lack of proposals to examine how the capabilities of technological innovation support the performance of digital enterprises in innovation ecosystems. The authors conducted a survey with a sample of 135 incubator managers in Italy. Spearmans correlation was used to examine the relationship between technological innovation capabilities and the performance of digital entrepreneurship. The main finding of the results is that most technological innovation capabilities have a positive effect on the creation and capture of value, but are of little significance for proposition. The findings of this research suggest that incubator managers should focus their efforts mainly on the capabilities that most increase the proposal, the creation and the capture of value. Finally, we offer implications for management theory and practice.

  • Management guidelines to address cultural challenges and facilitate values-based innovation through gamification   Order a copy of this article
    by Henning Breuer, Kiril Ivanov, Carmen Abril 
    Abstract: Gamification has developed into a methodology of its own to drive innovation and to foster values-based innovation cultures within organisations. However, there are no clear management guidelines, nor any overview of the different gamification approaches that will help organizations to facilitate values-based innovation and to successfully address cultural challenges through gamification. This paper explores this new field through a review of the literature and gathering managerial insights from 26 in-depth interviews with innovation managers from European companies. Based on the findings, we synthesise knowledge and formulate management guidelines for designing and implementing gamification processes to foster values-based innovation cultures within organisations. Our findings reveal the potential for the gamification of innovation and outline pathways for future research on the gamification of values-based innovation and organisational culture development.
    Keywords: innovation culture; values-based innovation; innovation management; gamification; facilitation; literature review; design guidelines.
