Questions related to Business Model Innovation
From your experience, what is the best regional experience with the Energy Efficiency measures in Africa, especially in SSA?
Due to digitalization and globalization there is an increase in online retailing.
But what does that mean for brick and mortar stores? Will there still be offline stores in about ten years? For instance, to purchase our daily groceries?
Researchers agree that offline stores should focus on shopping experience in order to crease an added value in comparison to online settings. Is that key to survive? However, will only big players be able to survive in long term by starting their own online stores? Is an overarching and neutral platform-based solution for future retail maybe a further direction, especcially for small retailers?
Which biases / measuring errors do I have to address when doing a survey, where the independent & dependent variable is collected via the same questionnaire from one person?
I already addressed common method bias by integrating a marker variable.
In particular any other biases / measuring errors I can address when setting up the questionnaire (like the remedy for common method bias with the marker variable)
Many thanks in advance!!
I need feedback on my survey before I publish it. I would be happy if someone could test it beforehand. The survey is available in German and English. Specifically, I am looking at the barriers that prevent established companies from changing their business model and what impact the COVID-19 pandemic has on them.

Thank you very much!
Given the ubiquitous nature and increasing use & potentialities of mobile devices in today's fast paced world.
I would like to focus my master thesis on digitalisation and business models and struggle on how to find a good research gap. My research topic will be digitalisation and its affect on business model innovation. I am thinking to focusing on only one industry ( maybe automotive) at the moment but this can be changed while I doing literature review. Moreover, the whole topic is still rather vague and I am searching for an interesting currently under researched field.
Any suggestions? Would much appreciate it!
We are about to conduct a survey based study for our project on digitaliazation and business model innovation. As most studies in the area of digitalization are very technical and stem from an information systems context, operationalization of relevant constructs is not straightforward. To get an initial idea about what was measured in this context before, we would be very interested in your experiences in measuring digitalization across various domains (e.g. Marketing, Management, Information Systems etc.). Which empirical studies exist? Which constructs were previously measured? Which additional constructs surround this area and should be incorporated in the survey?
What should be the scientific approach to draw test framework to justify validity and reliability of the data used in research works?
Research use to be done based on data inputs from primary and secondary data source.
To validate qualitative and quantitative data, its recommended to come out with effective test framework which can help in justification of the validity and reliability of the data.
In my opinion, philosophy can help in describing the methodology of generating specific new, innovative formulas and research concepts that in the 21st century may concern, among others, the issues of artificial intelligence, data processing in Big Data resources, robotics, biotechnology, new online media and many other developmental fields of knowledge and new technologies.
In view of the above, the current question is: Does philosophy help in the creation of new research formulas?
Please, answer, comments. I invite you to the discussion.
We are considering the construct of innovation performance for a cross-sectional study. In this regard, I have only of Wang and Ahmad (2004)'s instrument for measurement purpose.
Is there any other reliable and renowned instruments of innovation performance that could be used in publications?
The context of our research study is on the intersections of learning, HR dynamics, and innovation. So you may suggest any construct of innovation varying from process and product innovation dimension to the capabilities of innovation dimension.

I would like to focus my master thesis on 3D printing and business models and struggle on how to find a good research gap. I was thinking about focusing on only one industry (maybe automotive) and customisation and compare it with another industry (maybe construction). But the whole topic is still rather vague and I am searching for an interesting currently under researched field.
Any suggestions? Would much appreciate it!
Does anyone know questionnaire items for physical,financial, human intellectual, organizational, reputation and technological ressources? I want to explore the effect of those on the degree of business model innovation!
Any hints / comments are more than welcome!
I am currently conducting research on business model innvovation (BMI), more precisely I want to clarify which ressources mostly influence the degree of BMI.
Therefore, I am searching for a holistic framework that covers all necessary ressources a firm has, preferable with validated measures and scales. I already found one framework by Seppänen & Mäkinen (2007), however without items/scales.
So, do you might heard about a framework or similar research?
I`m very thankful for any hint.
Edit: For measuring the degree of BMI I am using the validated scale of Clauss, 2016.
Seppänen, M. & Mäkinnen, S. (2007). Towards a classification of resources for the business model concept. International Journal of Management Concepts and Philosophy, 2(4): S. 389–404.
Clauss, T. (2016): Measuring Business Model Innovation: Conceptualization, Scale Development, and Proof of Performance, in: R&D Management, S. 1 – 19.
I was just curious if there are any opinions on this topic.
My Point of view would be "No.", since it is basicaly a further development and improvement of existing driving assistance moduls. So the technology itself should not fall under Christensens definition. What new business models are born from it is another cup of tea...
Looking forward to your answers!
I am reviewing the Business Model Innovation (BMI) measurement instruments in general. Would like to know all the available tools and the pros and cons of each. Does a development of a new measurement tool warranted for BMI?
We are currently doing research on business model innovation (BMI), and we are now searching for empirical research that operationalize and measure BMI. The closest thing we have found so far is a paper by Zott and Amit (2007), where they use a 13-item scale that measures novelty in business model design. However, does anyone know about other publications measuring BMI? Basically, we are looking for developed and preferably validated measures or scales that we can use in our own research. We are thankful for any advice on this matter.
I would like to measure which innovation barriers are perceived especially critical on a firm level. After a literature review I realized that most studies rely on the Community Innovation Survey (CIS), which in my opinion does not incorporate a holistic perspective of all potential internal and external innovation barriers. In case you know of any alternative scale I would appreciate your help! Thank you in advance!
Devops TTM Solutions are gaining lot of focus in enterprise and Digital solution organisations .

I am a master student and looking for primary and secondary information that might help answering this question. I also looking for persons who I can interview who are active in the water management industry in India. I already emailed a lot of organizations but I am still waiting for response.
All the help is welcome since I want to finish my master thesis this summer,
i) Is there any connection between the two,
ii) are they two different concepts for two different scenarios?

Within Technology and Innovation Management research, the concept of “newness” is central (e.g. Garcia and Calantone, 2002; Meyer and Utterback, 1995; Johannessen, Olsen and Lumpkin, 2001), and commonly used. To my knowledge this concept has not yet been widely used within research on business model innovation (BMI). This is strange as it makes sense to assume that the level of newness (e.g. incremental vs radical BMI) of a new business model will have an impact on the performance of the business model, and also on the way it should be managed by the firm.
So my question is: How can we differentiate between different levels of newness in business model innovation, and what are the dimensions that might help us to do so?
In which context settings and scenarios they will likely to occur?
Existing literature suggests that business model innovation can have a dark side - somewhat negative consequences and/or unintended outcomes. Can anyone help me to identify in which context-setting the negative consequences and/or outcomes will likely to occur? What are the scenarios?
In my research I am attempting to determine if this is a problem worth futher research and will my likely outcome be another model or framework. Is there a need to have a specific process for business model innovation that can be replicated?
More than ever, in times of crisis (but not only) is required to find solutions to "move things"! In these circumstances innovation is an example given by those who studying business.
I would be glad to find out more examples. Thank you in advance!
I am planning to write a paper which links Business and IT with the help of a feedback systems approach.
Small firms mostly encounter the challenge of promoting innovations due to their limited resources. Accelerating the transfer of knowledge from external sources, knowledge spillovers enable the firms to acquire new knowledge and recognize invaluable opportunities. Thus, the utilization of knowledge spillovers would bring various beneficial consequences in all stages of open innovation process such as low cost knowledge acquisition, recognizing the opportunities of partnership, finding new ideas of commercializing unexploited technologies and adopting new methods of managing incentives and controls. However the spillover of knowledge would be available for all the competitors, only those strategically allocate their capabilities to explore new knowledge and exploit their innovations could gain more advantages.
In this regards, some interesting questions would arise:
1) What kind of institutional mechanisms can promote open innovation through strategic use of knowledge spillovers?
2) How can firms decrease the cost of openness by utilizing knowledge spillovers?
3) How would knowledge spillovers lead firms to integrate different forms of openness in order to experience the growth?
4) How can knowledge spillovers provide new ways for the firms to work with external actors?
5) How can knowledge spillovers widen the search breath and accelerate the process of scanning for the external expertise?
6) How can firms benefit from knowledge spillovers through different forms of open innovation such as Acquiring, Sourcing, Selling and Revealing?
Employee innovativeness, employee innovative work behaviour and employee innovative output are all relatively recent constructs. What is the relationship and association between these three constructs, if any? Further, what is the path that any or all of these three constructs follow in order to deliver firm innovativeness
Is competitive advantage only a rather temporary phenomenon? And does success in terms of competitive advantage breed failure - due to inertia, dominant logics etc.?
The concept of competitive advantage survived every crisis in the past. However, more recently, new challenges appear: ICT speeds and questions everything (instant obsolescence of novelties?), companies still compete but very often the competition between platforms is more decisive than the competition between firms - and value added structures change quickly due to business model innovation and/or transformation. Can you help putting the concept of competitive advantage in new light? Or is there no need to do so?
I'm looking for literature that reflects on differences and similarities of prominent business model schemata such as narratives, archetypes, graphical frameworks, or meta-models of leading researchers in the business model domain.
Thank you in advance!
I am working on the notion of business model innovation in the context of business ecosystem and particularly the role of linked activities of various partners to re-design their business models to create value and capture part of it. Can anyone suggest the related research papers and mention any ongoing empirical research on this issue?

The business model literature is relatively scarce and especially the literature dedicated to sustainable business model. There are some attempts especially from German scholars. I will appreciate any suggestion that will help me in getting the newest research in the field of business model for sustainability that will create an up to date and comprehensive literature review.
