A Project Network: An Approach to Creating Emergent Business

30.01.2008
MA Brett Fifield
Time: Feb 1. 2008 12:15 PM
Place: Helsinki School of Economics (HSE), Chydenia Building, STORA ENSO Hall (Runeberginkatu 22-24, Helsinki, Finland)

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:
On February 1, 2008, Mr. Brett Fifield will defend his doctoral Dissertation “A Project Network: An Approach to Creating Emergent Business” at the Helsinki School of Economics' Chydenia building at 12:00 pm.

The opponent is Professor Kjell Gronhaug (Norwegian School of Economics) and the custos is Professor Kristian Möller (Helsinki School of Economics).

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
