Ageing, urbanization, and decreasing dependence of non-industrial private forest (NIPF) owners on forestry income have challenged the industrial timber supply of several developed countries in Europe and the US. NIPF ownership objectives have gradually also become more diverse in Finland, emphasizing the non-timber amenities of forests. The objecti...

Purpose ‐ The purpose of this study is to determine how closely an in-class role-play can mirror and capture the features and characteristics of work-based learning with real-life working experiences. The aim is also to discuss the potential and drawbacks of using role-play as a form of work-related learning. Design/methodology/approach ‐ This case...

While the behavior and objectives of non-industrial private forest (NIPF) owners have been studied extensively, studies that systematically test the underlying measurement model are lacking in forest economic literature. Our paper reports the results obtained from a recent large-scale survey conducted in Finland in 2011 (n = 557). Results indicate...

The rising interest in wooden multistory buildings (WMSB) has led to multiple studies investigating how construction professionals perceive different structural frame materials. These investigations, however, exclude viewpoints from public employees (i.e., civil servants), who are central to driving the implementation of WMSB. This study is part of...

Consumer acceptance of new bio-based products plays a key role in the envisioned transition towards a forest-based bioeconomy. Multi-storey wooden buildings (MSWB) exemplify a modern, bio-based business opportunity for enacting low-carbon urban housing. However, there is limited knowledge about the differing perceptions consumers hold regarding woo...

New innovations are called for to renew the European forest sector into bioeconomy. However, little research exists on how the industry innovativeness is publicly perceived. Using data collected with an online questionnaire in four European countries, we investigate perceptions related to forest sector innovations on 13 current and new bioeconomy-r...

Natural and business ecosystems are complex and dynamic service systems that interact through the utilization of ecosystem service offerings for human well-being. Currently, natural and business sciences have not developed a shared and common set of service-based terms or concepts for discussing ecosystem service offerings in the process of value c...
Chapter
In the transition towards a renewable material -based bioeconomy in Europe, growing interest is being directed towards wooden multistorey construction (WMC) as a sustainable housing solution. We analyse the changing WMC business, and the involved value networks towards 2030 based on service business model literature, with a focus also on consumer-d...
Chapter
Two in-depth case studies are presented that explore the development of new business models in settled contexts. These cases provide very different responses to the strategic and operational challenges that are present in the two contexts - one a traditional agricultural sector, the other a mobile telecommunications service provider. The Finnish fo...
Article
The transformation of the forest sector toward a bioeconomy calls for finding new sources of competitive advantage for the whole sector to retain its future viability. Non-industrial private forest owners are an important group of actors in the Finnish forest-based sector, as they supply 80% of industrial roundwood and control numerous other tangib...
Article
In the face of a strong societal emphasis on sustainable development, the research on environmentally conscious consumers is becoming increasingly important. In a country such as Finland, non-industrial private forest (NIPF) owners can be used as a proxy for a high-involvement group engaged in forest ecosystem service provision and consumption. NIP...

The use of network-based business models has been brought up as a means of creating com-petitive edge in the tightening global competition. In practice, adopting network-based models has not yet become common in the wood products industry. The objective of this study is to gain better understanding of types of network-based business models using a...

We propose the Service-dominant (SD) logic in describing how Ecosystem service (ES) value networks are conceptualized through shared value creation and the utilization of services for producing human well-being. Until now, the ES approach has relied heavily on the neo-classical frame to explain value and services with mixed results. Additionally, t...

Forest owners' timber stand improvement (TSI) intentions were studied by applying the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB), which was tested by estimating structural equation models on Finnish landowner survey data (n = 2116).The TPB was supported by empirical data. The subjective norm was the most important explanatory factor, and attitudes had a smal...
Article
During the past 10 years, substantial relationship marketing disciplinary discussion has centred around the concepts of commitment and trust as the key mediating concepts of relationship perceptions.
