I am doing a national research project on the factors affecting the National Agricultural Innovation and Extension System in Iran. I would like to know your valuable opinions and views regarding this Issue. Please share your knowledge and Ideas about that.
According to statistical data, on average 1 startup per 10 achieves spectacular success and develops dynamically for a minimum period of several years. 2-3 somehow manage, but without major successes, and the remaining 7 after a year or two years end their activities for various reasons. This statistic may differ slightly between regions and countries depending on external financing assistance programs, organizational support from business incubators, etc. However, a small part of opened startups has been functioning for more than 2 years and has achieved great success in the scope of offer development, business run, participation in the acquired markets, the sale of a specific offer of innovative products or services and achieves financial success, which provides development opportunities.
In view of the above, what are the key success factors for the development of innovative startups? Is the idea for an innovative product or service the most important? Is the innovative technology on the basis of which new products or services are manufactured? Are convenient sources of external financing? Is a well-connected team of founders of a startup? Is a convenient tax system supporting the development of small entrepreneurship and innovation? Are also other factors?
I invite you to the discussion
Thank you very much
We are working on the design of a study on challenges that companies face within the innovation process related to the collaboration between different functions and disciplines - including related methodologies that help to overcome these challenges.
I would like to start this discussion to collect previous activities on this topic area as well as your experiences collected in collaboration with companies (setting the academic world apart - even if there are similar challenges existing...)
Three questions to start the discussion:
- What are the challenges that you have seen or worked upon with or within firms?
- Did you find any insights on system interdependencies or patterns?
- What methodologies would you recommend to overcome these challenges and why?
Looking forward to your input and the discussion!
Is any of you using systems thinking theory and methodology in his/her research?
My background is in political science and I am doing a study on innovation in bioenergy diffusion. As far as I know, systems thinking fits quite well my "systemic" approach to innovation in this sector, and especially because I want to look at how to best manage the interaction between the creation of new knowledge-new technology-new policy and social issues emerging within this system (in two case-studies). If you have any idea, feedback, suggestion, input, advice...this would all be very welcome.
Many approaches have been devetod to explain and/or understand the innovation (knowledge) creation process within the National Innovation System. according to Carayannis and Campbell, the Quintuple Helix model is the most sophisticated one to explain innovation in the 21rst century, where environmental issues constitute the core partner.
These authors classify environment at the same level as university; indusrty; government or the public.However, I think that envrironment cannot be considered as a separate helice ( as University for instance) but as a key variable to be included in any innovation program. this is because the four helices (U-I-G and P) are either producer or user of innovation, while envrironment does not aquire this quality.
So I would like discuss this issue and ask you to confirm or deny my point of view.
I am planning to write a paper which links Business and IT with the help of a feedback systems approach.
As a head teacher in math department in a public school , I'm trying to find a system that will have a systematic way of the to submit report on time.
Few customers develop innovations from some products which were not originally thought of. If there is a system to track down those inventions/innovations.
Hi everyone !
I am a student in the final year of my industrial economy engineering with focus on sustainable supply chain management at Jönköping University Sweden. I have recently taken a course on Innovative production system development where Industry 4.0, automation and Innovation Management was on focus. This subject interested me a lot and I am wondering if anyone can suggest a bachelor thesis on the implication of Industry 4.0 on the Supply Chain Management ? At the same time if you have heard of Logistics 4.0 and Supply Chain Management 4.0 that combines the indsutry or production to the Supply Chains of the future. I am trying read about the topic but all help and information from you will be highly appreciated.
