... Dazu gehören (1) die Auffassung, dass das Geschäftsmodell eine neue Analyseeinheit bildet, (2) eine systemische Perspektive darauf, wie Geschäfte getätigt werden (3) die Berücksichtigung von Aktivitäten, die Unternehmensgrenzen überspannen, (4) sowie der Fokus auf Wertschöpfung. Stähler (2002) entwirft eine deutschsprachige Definition für eine Analyse in der digitalen Ökonomie. Er definiert ein Geschäftsmodell als "ein Geschäftskonzept, das in der Praxis schon angewandt wird". ...
... A shift of long-term assumptions about the mode operandi of an industry is called business model innovation. A business model is the modelbased description of a business that consists of three components: Value contribution, value-added architecture and profit model [54]. ...

There are different organizational units to promote corporate innovations these days. Especially corporate incubators are one way to encourage radical innovations outside the core business. One of the major challenge thereby is the reintegration of innovations into the corporate process. The author therefore develops a model for a situation specific transfer process for innovation from corporate incubators that fit to the corporate strategy. Up to now it is not examined in literature which types of innovations are originally developed within corporate incubators. In this paper we therefore examine different types of innovations and identify which of them occur in different innovation environments, especially corporate incubators. By identifying 5 characteristic types of corporate incubators a more detailed allocation of the innovation types is made due to their distinctive competencies.

Companies are facing the challenge of digital transformation. Especially in the manufacturing industry, organizations are struggling with it and lose their competitive advantage. Existing roadmaps are often linear and are not addressing the business model and key challenges, while a one-fits-all Industry 4.0 (I4.0) transformation path is suggested: creating smart operations first, followed by smart products and completed by smart services. This will be challenged, wherefore the objective of this research is to support organizations in I4.0 transformation end-to-end from defining a vision to creating competitive advantage. The research conducted provides several results. First, prototyping is a suitable methodology for agile transformation in a constantly changing environment, leading to the term I4.0 prototyping. Second, companies need to implement processes to monitor changes in their environment to enable proactive actions. Third, the ideal I4.0 transformation path depends on the envision data-enabled business model which is also characterizing the resulting prototype and can differ greatly. Finally, the role of technology varies from being an enabler in B2C markets to being the innovation driver in B2B markets.

Performance Based Contracting (PBC) ist ein Ansatz, der langfristige Verträge nutzt und diese mit ergebnisorientierten Kennzahlen und Anreizpreisen ausgestaltet. PBC zielt darauf ab, die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Abnehmer und Lieferant über die Laufzeit zu verbessern, also Innovation zu erreichen. Hierfür gibt es in der Praxis bereits zahlreiche Beispiele (Flugzeugtriebwerke, Ersatzteilversorgung, Betrieb von Investitionsgütern). PBC hat seine Ursprünge Ende der 1990er/Anfang der 2000er Jahre. Im Kern hat PBC moderne Controllinginstrumente (Kennzahlen, Service-Levels, Anreizpreise) für die Zusammenarbeit mit Lieferanten strukturell nutzbar gemacht. Die Digitalisierung eröffnet das Potenzial, die Möglichkeiten dieser Instrumente auf eine ganz neue Stufe zu heben. Dieser Beitrag untersucht anhand der Transaktionskostentheorie und zweier Fallbeispiele, auf welche Weise PBC durch die Digitalisierung beeinflusst wird. Die Schlussfolgerung ist, dass die Innovationsdynamik, welche PBC ermöglicht, durch Digitalisierung nochmals transparenter und damit auch steuerbarer wird (Verstärkungseffekt). Andererseits verändert die Digitalisierung insgesamt das Contracting, was dazu führen kann, dass PBC in weniger Anwendungsfällen den Implementierungsaufwand rechtfertigt (Fokussierungseffekt).

Mittelständische Unternehmen weisen in der Regel einen hohen Anteil industrieller Unternehmen und somit meist sehr traditionelle Geschäftsmodelle auf. Der vorliegende Beitrag diskutiert auf Basis einer Fallstudienuntersuchung von 41 Unternehmen die Frage, ob und inwieweit die zunehmende Digitalisierung zu einer verstärkten Transformation mittelständischer Geschäftsmodelle führt. Die Ergebnisse zeigen, dass im Bereich der Ertragsmechanik die größten Veränderungen erwartet werden. Eine Kontrastierung nach Geschäftsmodelltyp zeigt, dass Manufacturer den Fokus der Transformation auf Effizienzsteigerungen von Produktionsprozessen legen, während Landlords Schnittstellen zu Kunden und Lieferanten optimieren möchten. Summarisch ist hier aber eher von einer Evolution als einer Revolution mittelständischer Geschäftsmodelle auszugehen.

Digital platforms have been reshaping the structure of whole industries. Whereas previous developments mainly have taken place within the business-to-consumer (B2C) or consumer-to-consumer (C2C) market, the business-to-business (B2B) market is at the edge of the so-called platform economy. Leading companies step out of their core business and develop their own platforms. The paper at hand presents a methodology to master the challenges of developing digital platforms by using patterns, which represent proven principles of already established platforms. The methodology is based on a holistic pattern catalogue that can be used independently from the task at hand. We show in detail how we derived a catalogue with 37 platform patterns and how the catalogue can be applied to the development of digital platforms. The corresponding methodology contains three phases. Within the first phase, a specific platform idea is being developed. The second phase addresses the collaboration of an abstract platform concept. Finally, a specific digital platform concept is worked out.

Die neuen technischen Möglichkeiten der Big-Data-Methodik erlauben es, unerwartete Strukturen und Beziehungen in Datensätzen zu finden, die aus unterschiedlichsten Zusammenhängen und Bereichen stammen können. Dies wird nicht nur aus forschungstaktischen Gründen getan, sondern um gegebenenfalls monetarisierbare Zusammenhänge zu finden, um neue Geschäftsmodelle finden zu können. Das Ergebnis einer Daten-Analyse durch die Methoden der Big-Data-Technologien kann nicht angemessen interpretiert werden, wenn die Forschungsfrage, d. h. die Frage, wonach man eigentlich sucht, nicht vorher gestellt worden ist. Deshalb braucht man ein Modell, das den untersuchten Prozess oder Gegenstandsbereich vorläufig hypothetisch erklärt, d. h. eine Kausal-Vermutung. Ein Modell, das kausale Erklärungen erlaubt, ist allemal besser als ein Modell, das nur Extrapolationen liefert. Es besteht die Tendenz, die wissenschaftliche Methodik durch bloße numerische Prozeduren zu ersetzen. Treiber dieser Entwicklung sind Geschäftsmodelle, die darauf abzielen, eine multifunktionale Verwendung von einmal erhobenen Daten in unterschiedlichsten Kontexten, sprich Ontologien, vermarkten zu können.

In neoclassical theory, knowledge generates increasing returns – and therefore growth – because it is a public good that can be costlessly reused once created. In fact, however, much knowledge in the economy is actually tacit and not easily transmitted –and thus not an obvious source of increasing returns. Several writers have responded to this alarming circumstances by affirming hopefully that knowledge today is increasingly codified, general, and abstract – and increasingly less tacit. This paper disputes such a trend. But all is not lost: for knowledge does not have to be codified to be reused and therefore to generate economic growth.

Word-of-mouth promotion has become an increasingly potent force, capable of catapulting products from obscurity into runaway commercial successes. Harry Potter, collapsible scooters, the Chrysler PT Cruiser, and The Blair Witch Project are all recent examples of the considerable power of buzz. Yet many top executives and marketing managers are misinformed about the phenomenon and remain enslaved to some common myths. In her article, author Renée Dye explores the truth behind these myths. Myth 1: Only outrageous or edgy products are buzz-worthy. That's simply not true. The most unlikely products, like prescription drugs, can generate tremendous buzz. Myth 2: Buzz just happens. Not so, says Dye. Buzz is increasingly the result of shrewd marketing tactics in which companies seed a vanguard group, ration supplies, use celebrity endorsements, leverage the power of lists, and initiate grassroots marketing. Myth 3: The best buzz-starters are your best customers. Often, a counterculture has a greater ability to start buzz. Myth 4: To profit from buzz, you must act first and fast. In fact, copycat companies can reap substantial profits if they know when and when not to jump in. Myth 5: The media and advertising are needed to create buzz. When used either too early or too much, the media and advertising can squelch buzz before it ignites. As globalization and brand proliferation continue, writes Dye, buzz may come to dominate the shaping of markets. Indeed, companies that are unable to control buzz may soon find the phenomenon controlling them.
