Brett Fifield's study focused on a Finnish micro firm establishing a business network to strategically create an emergent business opportunity. Mr. Fifield explores how a Project Network can be a purposeful vehicle for creating new business.
There are two reasons why this study is important in Finland. The first reason is the relatively high importance of the role of the micro entrepreneurial firm with respect to creating innovation in the high technology sector in Finland.
The second reason is that emergent business networks face different challenges than stable business networks and many Finnish firms are attempting to enter or create emerging markets by using business networks. Therefore, a Project Network can be an important vehicle to create a targeted business opportunity for Finnish firms.
This study provides a strategic approach to creating emergent opportunities as a part of a strategic and coherent team of actors. By using a Project Network, as an approach to creating emergent business, the firms remain autonomous yet collaborate to create a competitive advantage for both the Project Network and the individual firms.
The findings of the study will help firms understand investments in emerging business models or emerging market opportunities by analyzing the early processes of a network formation to understand the strategic investments in a project as part of a business network.Information:

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
