Development of instruments and techniques to assist decision makers of the entertainment industry.
Project
From a common reference framework on uncertainties, the project articulates four subprojects: 1) uncertainty management in major/radical innovation activities in established companies, focusing on issues of innovation organization and the emergence of an innovation function in the company, valuation and portfolio management of innovation projects, innovation processes, and (in)compatibility between short-term incentives to managers versus long-term horizons typical of major/radical innovation; 2) entrepreneurial action in startups focused on uncertainty management in the innovation ecosystem of value co-creation, and in the decision-making heuristics that shape entrepreneurial action; 3) legal and institutional uncertainties in technology contracts [research and development (R&D)], particularly between public and private actors; and 4) some systemic key uncertainties: public policies to support innovation in the company, and the new opportunities and threats regarding data analytics. Therefore, the project uses both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. Qualitatively, subprojects 1 and 2 adopt the methodology of longitudinal case studies, following the evolution of companies and their decisions over time; projects 3 and 4 analyze documents and interview actors. Quantitatively, surveys and analysis based on official databases. The project aims at contributing to the literature on innovation management, entrepreneurial action, organizational theory, and public policies. It articulates actions with leading researchers worldwide.
