Collaboration Mechanisms to Articulate Sustainable Innovation within Value Networks

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Social and environmental disequilibria demand sustainable innovation, defined as innovation that improves sustainability performance on the ecological, economic, and social domains. To be effective, sustainable innovation needs to go beyond products and services, to encompass organizational business models and even entire value networks. For this to happen, collaboration mechanisms that articulate system-wide value creation are critical. Those mechanisms and the interplay between them have received relatively little attention among scholars. Our paper explores what type of collaboration mechanisms allowed sustainable enterprises to create value for workers, suppliers and society, and the interplay among those mechanisms. Drawing on a small sample of information-rich cases of best-in-class organizations, we confirmed findings of the extant literature that established the importance of economic and social collaboration mechanisms in bringing about sustainable innovation at the VN level, and added an environmental dimension. We brought in transaction cost economics and social network theories to understand the collaboration mechanisms that coordinate and safeguard exchanges all along VNs. We identified the conditions that enable focal firms to collaborate and create value at the VN level. Finally, we tentatively established propositions between enabling conditions, collaboration mechanisms, and outcomes. Two uncovered issues deserve special attention: scaling deep as an alternative to scaling up, and trade-ons in the emerging novel VN that can disappear over time via price-based competition.
