• Groeifinanciering: Case Pharmasoft

      Manigart, Sophie; Vermeiren, Nico (2004)
      This paper investigates the impact of open innovation on national systems of innovation. The open innovation concept has become widely established among scholars and practitioners. However, an overview of its impact on national innovation systems is still lacking. Given that the innovating firm is at the core of national innovation systems, a better understanding of shifting innovation strategies at the firm level is of fundamental importance to the actions of policy-makers within the national innovation systems framework. Based on the main analytical approaches of national innovation systems and the current state of open innovation research, we argue that open innovation practices have at least three critical effects on national systems of innovation: (a) they reinforce its importance, (b) they improve its effectiveness, and (c) they diversify its networks.

      Existing consumer innovativeness scales ignore the multitude of motivation sources of buying innovations. The objective of this paper is to incorporate recent motivation research into a multi-dimensional innovativeness scale to better account for the consumer-product relation. An exploratory and confirmatory study (with 780 respondents in total) indicates that four types of motivations underlie consumer innovativeness: functional, hedonic, social and cognitive. The proposed 28-item Motivated Consumer Innovativeness scale proves to be reliable, valid and goes beyond existing innovativeness scales.

    • Groeimanagement. Lessen van dynamische ondernemers

      Crijns, Hans; Ooghe, Hubert (1997)
      Met medewerking van o.m. Marc Buelens, Aimé Heene, Johan Mussche, Herman Van den Broeck,...Groeimanagement is meer dan een boek over management, het is een concept voor dynamisch ondernemerschap in zijn geheel. Het is gebaseerd op de bevindingen bij middelgrote, ondernemersgeleide bedrijven die groeien. Deze ondernemingen laten goed zien hoe ondernemerschap en groei in de praktijk werken en welke problemen zij het hoofd bieden. De auteurs, bijna allen medewerkers van de Vlerick School voor Management en van het Impulscentrum Groeimanagement brengen belangrijke ideeën naar voren over ondernemingsgroei betreffende strategie, marketing, financiering, organisatie, leerprocessen, continuïteitsstructuren, professionale dienstverlening, relaties met banken,... Het boek richt zich uiteraard tot ondernemers en managers die in het bedrijfsleven actief zijn. Zij zullen er ten behoeve van hun praktijk verschillende nuttige concepten en ideeën in terugvinden. Maar ook beleidsverantwoordelijken en studenten kunnen door dit boek inzicht verwerven in de dynamiek van ondernemersgroei en ondernemerschap.

      During the early years of the World Wide Web, also commonly referred to as the internet, there was relatively little engagement between content providers and end-users, or between end-users. Although some specialized communities, such as newsgroups, approached the internet as an open, decentralized, participative platform, not many content providers really did. Communication occurred mainly in a top-down, one-to-many, centralized mode of content broadcasting. In many ways the internet remained similar to already existing media such as television or radio. This first era of development is now being referred to as web 1.0. The advent of Web 2.0 has been about embracing the inherently open and social characteristics of the internet. It supports a profound change in communication toward a many-to-many, decentralized format. The latter favors the emergence of bottom-up trends rather than the design of top-down, paternalistically imposed strategies and structures. Web 2.0 applications aspire to make maximal use of the level playing field for engagement offered by the internet, both technologically and socially (O’Reilly, 2005, 2006). The World Wide Web has thereby entered “the realm of sociality” (Bouman et al., 2007), where software becomes fused with everyday social life. Social software applications such as Wikipedia, Facebook and MySpace have all but become household names.
