Open dialogues for business model innovation

  • Robert William Anderson

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


A growing body of research is highlighting how open innovative business models support the growth and economic success of new ideas and technologies. In this Ph.D., building on an action research study in SMEs, I develop the Open Business Model Innovation Framework that accounts for the interactions between value creation and active participation in the development of unmet needs to new business formations. I begin to unpack the process of open business model innovation development supporting the ability of SMEs to build and re-build their businesses.
