Purpose – The purpose of this study is to examine the current open innovation practices in the public sector of leading countries.Design/methodology/approach – Using a framework based on the role of the government in open innovation, this study analyses a profile of early open innovation adopters based on collected data from secondary sources.Findings – First, the USA, Australia and Singapore developed open innovation policies at the national level, facilitating a positive innovation climate. Many projects, especially those in online platforms, were established under these policies. Second, although outside‐in open innovation principles seem to be popular, there have been emerging attempts to exploit the value of government data through inside‐out approaches.Research limitations/implications – Most governments are in the early stages of adoption of open innovation and are in the process of understanding relevant issues. Future research should investigate how governments adopt open innovation, in particula...

The link between difficulties in obtaining funding and young innovative companies (YICs) has been investigated in numerous studies. YICs also face other barriers such as limited internal resources, access to technology services, etc. Thus, any public policy on innovation for providing financial support to YICs must be accompanied by offering technical assistance and consulting services. The purpose of this study is to determine the characteristics of YICs that enhance their innovation and, speci...

This paper investigates the provision of financial services by banks as a two-stage production process involving three different basic activities. The first stage includes service activities, while the second stage comprises both investment-related and risk management activities. Financial services performance is assessed in terms of service efficiency and investment and risk management efficiency for years 2002–2010. The major empirical findings are that the Internet-primary bank is more effici...

This paper analyzes the relationships between firms' external search of knowledge and its role in cooperation strategies for innovation. In particular, this study accounts for differences between public and private external sources of knowledge and between private–private and public–private cooperation arrangements. The empirical model is based on the Fourth Community Innovation Survey statistics for 15 countries and 40 economic branches. Although firms' internal R&D effort and size are importan...

This study applies Beatty and Elizabeth Ferrell's impulse buying model to investigate consumers' buying impulses after receiving digital media promotions for limited-time-only sale for services. The influences of consumers' positive affect and impulse buying tendency on their felt urge to buy impulsively were explored. Questionnaires were utilized to survey consumers and structural equation modeling was adopted to explore the causal relationship among the constructs. The results indicated that c...

Regarding the increasingly important role of financial services sectors like futures exchanges previous research has been unable to determine what types of futures contracts contribute to higher trading volumes and the likely magnitudes of their contributions. Thus, to investigate the sources of higher trading volumes in futures exchanges, this study, following the perspectives of diversification relatedness and core competence, adopts a multi-component concept and proposes that different future...

Abstract null null While creating value in open innovation (OI) requires knowledge sharing, appropriating value in OI entails some closedness and protectiveness. Hence, tensions between generating and appropriating value, known as the paradox of openness, may emerge in OI collaborations. Such tensions have been scarcely explored at the micro-level, even though it is a crucial piece to fully grasping the paradox of openness. Our study bridges this gap by examining individuals’ affective responses...
The idea for collaborative innovation within emerging tech firms especially in country of Kenya has not been fully explored. The subject of consideration is how do these emerging tech firms collaborate innovatively towards a unified computing environment where aspects of shared resources such as computing, storage, networking exists. Information technology is in a state of constant change. For example, computing has evolved from distributed computing to grid computing, to utility computing to cl...

Abstract Knowledge intensive service (KIS) is a key resource for new product development (NPD) of a firm. As a KIS provider, public research organization plays a critical role in supporting the success of firms’ NPD process, thereby promoting national/regional/local economic growth. In this study we examine the contribution of KISs at stages in an NPD process to firms’ performance considering the correlations between input variables. For the explicit quantification of the contributions at the NP...
