Cellular-networked industrial enterprises in innovation paradigm

Abstract

The main argument of this study is that a paradigmatic change is ongoing in business and innovation systems. One of the reasons for this change is that companies are increasingly operating in a complex and changing environment. Another reason is that a new innovation paradigm is emerging that will question the early theoretical and practical premises of management and organisational concepts as well as the concepts of the enterprise and the network. This study explicates a new concept of cellular-networked enterprises on the basis of an analysis of business systems and innovative networked approaches. In addition to the theoretical emphasis of this study, the practical aspects of the business and change models are reviewed and assessed. In this study, the different theoretical approaches to business and innovation systems as well as to the enterprise and network will be reviewed and new approaches and models will be explicated. A new approach to business and innovation systems - called the hyper-innovation approach - will also be argued and supported, based on the premises of complexity theories and the new theories on strategising and organising. Strategic change patterns will also be considered and modelled. Three strategic change models are distinguished: the planned change model, evolutionary change model and transformative change model. The Finnish business system and twelve business cases are described, analysed and modelled. This study focuses on the development of medium-sized firms and their role and activities as part of the Finnish industrial business system. Practical topic of this study is the management of service business and its business systems. Change processes and their models are also under consideration. Case descriptions are presented and analyses made. Finally, research and development methods are explicated and modelled.
