Industry Dynamics and Resource Advantage Wednesday, June 17, 2009 11.00 - 12.30 Michael Lenox Michael J. Lenox is the Samuel L. Slover Professor of Business at the University of Virginia's Darden School of Business. He is also Associate Dean and Executive Director of Darden's Batten Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Professor Lenox’s expertise is in the domain of technology strategy and policy. He is broadly interested in the role of innovation and entrepreneurship for economic growth and firm competitive success. In particular, he explores the sourcing of extramural knowledge by firms and its impact on firm innovation strategy. Professor Lenox has also had a long-standing interest in the interface between business strategy and public policy as it relates to the natural environment. Recent work explores firm strategies and non-traditional public policies that have the potential to drive “green” innovation and entrepreneurship. Prior to joining Darden in 2008, Professor Lenox was a professor at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business where he served as the area coordinator for Fuqua’s Strategy Area , the faculty director and founder of Duke’s Corporate Sustainability Initiative, and coordinated and taught the core MBA strategy course.

Daniel Snow Professor Snow joined the Harward Business School faculty in 2004. He teaches the Operations Strategy second-year MBA course, as well as executive education programs. His research focuses on technological innovation, specifically the relationship between new and old technologies. While most technology scholars and experts have focused on the issues surrounding new technologies, Professor Snow likes to point out that "old" technologies thrive and improve all around us. Many producers of incandescent light bulbs, wood building products, blackboards, 1990s-era computer chips, and gasoline engines continue to prosper. These companies face a unique set of challenges as they seek to improve their current offers. These challenges becomes even more complex for firms with both old and new technologies. Professor Snow's work seeks to further our understanding of the complex interplay between old and new technologies. Sidney Winter Deloitte and Touche Professor of Management Co-Director, Reginald H.

Therefore, power could not contribute to the productive efficiency of an economic organization. Power is supposed to result exclusively from contract failures. On the contrary, we think that economists have to revisit the theory of the firm from a power perspective. In this article, the objective is triple. First of all, we propose an original theoretical framework of power relationships, which takes into account organization theory, in order to fill the conceptual vacuum left by the theorists of the firm. Then, it is argued that power represents the methodological key needed by economists to analyze the emergence of intra-firm cooperation and collective social identity. Lastly, the focus is on the analysis of inter-firm cooperation to put forward the cohesive role of power in the genesis of the network-firm. Paper No. 2 Annamaria Conti and Patrick Gaulé: “Are the United States outperforming Europe in university technology licensing?” École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne Annamaria Conti, Patrick Gaulé: Abstract Europe is perceived to lag behind the US in converting its academic results into economic outcomes. Using new survey data and controlling for standard factors affecting the productivity of Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs), we find that European TTOs do not execute less licenses than US TTOs. However, they earn significantly less revenue from licenses. We relate the difference in licensing income to differences in the organization and staffing of TTOs. Specifically, US TTOs employ more staff with experience in industry and appear to have greater flexibility in managing their budget. Paper No. 3 Lori de Paauw: “Institutional entrepreneurship in constructing alternative paths: a comparison of biotech hybrids”Lori de Paauw, University of Manchester, Manchester Business SchoolComparative Business, Innovation and Employment Systems Research Group Abstract This paper looks at how actors adapt their organizational strategies to cope with the constraints in their respective national institutional frameworks. In doing so, it compares the patterns of innovation strategies of Dutch and British dedicated biotechnology firms (DBFs). The study uses a comparative case study methodology and focuses on a particular type of DBF strategy, the hybrid model. The evidence shows that British hybrids follow innovation strategies based on pursuing high-risk, radical innovation, essentially complying with theoretical expectations. In contrast, Dutch hybrids have used the hybrid strategy in ways that recombine elements of national and transnational institutional systems. Patterns of skill accumulation and learning present in the Dutch hybrid models are indications of how they use their institutional advantages to focus on low-risk innovation in services and build deeper competences. As an example of institutional recombination enabling new forms of organizational strategy, the Dutch hybrid explains how entrepreneurial actors comply with the dominant logic of the biotechnology field (the Silicon Valley model) even when their institutional frameworks encourage the pursuit of low-risk innovation strategies. Paper No. 4 Samira Reis: “Organizational Experience in the US TV industry 1950-2002”Samira Reis, Bocconi University, Strategy Institute, Management Department Abstract This study uses data on U.S. television production companies from 1950 to 2002 to analyze how organizational experience affects the likelihood of a future sale and product performance. In contrast to prior studies, which have analyzed selling and production processes separately, I propose that product performance emerges from both processes. Faced with uncertainty about the quality of new products and services, buyers make judgments about the quality of ideas on the basis of the organizational experience of the companies introducing them. Companies with the experience that buyers prefer nevertheless do not necessarily perform better than otherwise comparable organizations without such experience. Results of an empirical examination reveal that past success and diverse experience affect in distinct ways the likelihood of selling an idea for a new show and the performance of those shows. These two types of experience can, however, act as complements. These findings highlight the key role buyers perceptions play in product performance. ?

Drawing on multiple-case and first-hand evidence from 13 forestry, pulp and paper firms in Brazil (1950-2007) it was found that: (1) Firms innovation capability accumulation paths involved a qualitative departure from the established technological trajectory at the early stage of their capability development: (2) As firms moved along the new technological segment, over discontinuous policy regimes, there was a high degree of variability across and within firms in terms of depths and speeds of capability accumulation: (3) Firms that reached advanced and world-leading capability levels exhibited a combination between pro-active innovation strategies, entrepreneurial management and synergetic, and relatively informal, relationships with industrial policy-making, other than protectionism: (4) Such combination proved essential for such innovators to thrive along the new technological segment and cross discontinuous industrial policy regimes with progressively higher innovative performance. By adopting an approach that captures types, stages and dynamics of firms innovation capability building, the paper contributes to expanding our understanding of technological catch-up . It also sheds light on the role of firms innovation strategies and government policy in achieving international leadership in natural resource-processing industries from latecomer natural resource-endowed contexts. Paper No. 3 Vivien Procher, Dirk Engel and Christoph M. Schmidt: “Foreign market dynamics and the symmetric role of firm-specific characteristics - Evidence for French Firms” Vivien Procher: Ruhr Graduate School in Economics (RGS Econ), Rheinisch-Westfälisches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung (RWI Essen) Dirk Engel: University of Applied Science Stralsund And Rheinisch-Westfälisches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung Christoph M. Schmidt: Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Fakultät für Wirtschaftswissenschaft, Empirische Wirtschaftsforschung Abstract: This paper studies the internationalization behaviour of more than 300.000 French firms by examining the symmetric role of firm-specific factors on the decision to enter, exit or stay in foreign markets. It is argued that firm characteristics like productivity, financial liquidity and the ownership structure have a similar effect on export starters and continuous exporters. In contrast, determinants of foreign direct investments (FDI) and divestments are predicted to differ substantially. Multinomial probit (MNP) regressions confirm that firm-specific characteristics have a symmetric effect on entering and staying in foreign export markets. However, foreign investment and divestment decisions are more often characterized by asymmetric effects. The low explanatory power of performance-related measures suggests that divestments are to a larger extent driven by organizational and strategic factors. ?
