Abstract [en]

Prosumerism has not yet been discussed and linked to effects on the business network. Facing different forms of prosumerism and with little attention to the embedded contexts, managers and researchers have limited guiding from the current literature on prosumerism. In this paper, we compare three case studies which represent different shades of prosumption and prosumer-to-business interaction in network-embedded contexts, and discuss implications for managers and research. The paper contributes to the business-to-business interaction approach; exploring and discussing effects and characteristics of prosumption within business networks, it provides means for understanding the connectedness of prosumer-to-business interaction in business networks.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The recording industry has gone through a far-reaching disruption, but the major record companies from the past continue to surge. The following question is addressed: Why has disruption in the recording industry not followed the patterns of generic examples from other sectors? The purpose of this paper is to describe and explain why the digital disruption does not lead to the disruption of all types of companies.

Design/methodology/approach: This longitudinal study is based on a large set of secondary sources combined with in-depth interviews in Sweden's recording industry.

Findings: Findings indicate that when customers turn to streaming, the major record companies' direct control of which music the consumer is exposed to increases. This main finding contrasts statements that streaming services would facilitate peer-to-peer sharing activities between music customers and make record companies redundant. The major record companies have remained at a prosperous position due to the control of valuable content and marketing assets, as well as asymmetric interdependency among parties in the supply chain.

Research limitations/ implications: The recording industry is different to many other sectors based on the latent value of catalogues, and the conclusions drawn from this paper should thereby not be taken for granted for other industries.

Practical/ implications: Findings suggest that by " reading" the development of the industry and understanding what key resources create dependencies and revenue flows, managers would be better at tackling disruption.

Originality/ value: The paper contributes to previous literature by describing how incumbentcompanies survive and even prosper post- disruption. It adds to the understanding of the digitalization of the recording industry and points at how dependencies help to understand disruption.

Abstract [en]

IMP research is often treated as an empirical perspective describing complexities of repeated business-to-business exchanges and their embeddedness. While building on some common understandings and concepts, this paper asks: How homogeneous is the IMP research? This paper uses cluster analysis to capture the roots and various sub-groups of IMP research as means to depict the question of homogeneity (i.e. a core focus in the research) or heterogeneity (i.e. using references from other fields or specific to sub-fields) of the IMP thought. In this scientific work in progress paper we introduce how we design to use bibliographical methods in order to harvest data from an extensive amount of IMP-related articles written from the 1970’s onwards. In this first attempt to reveal IMP we used overall 294 articles yielded to 10,615 co-citation relationships. A threshold of minimum number of citations of a cited reference was set to five (5) to capture such references that have been cited in multiple publications. We introduce visual mapping of defined subject area clusters and as an example we describe shortly clusters. Perhaps not surprisingly our findings suggest that IMP research is not so homogenous, with at least four clear clusters of IMP-research each utilizing different key references.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: Retail has evolved over the past century alongside megatrends such as urbanization, consumerism and digitalization. To contribute to existing knowledge on patterns of retail form evolution, the purpose of this paper is to investigate when and how novel retail forms have evolved in the Swedish sporting goods market.

Design/methodology/approach: An evolutionary approach that encompasses population thinking is used to interpret the history of sporting goods retailing in Sweden from the interwar era onwards. Drawing on archival data and interviews, the focus in the historical analysis is on the evolution of retail form variation in terms of size, strategy, product range and retail channel (online/offline).

Findings: The paper suggests that evolutionary mechanisms cumulatively have changed the sports retail population from a rather homogenous set of smaller generalist stores toward a larger variety and specialization in mainly two directions: one trajectory toward small and service-focused niche specialists and the other toward high-volume sales outlets.

Originality/value: The paper provides a detailed empirical account of sports retail history in Sweden and an application of theoretical concepts contributing to an integrated investigation of empirical issues and theoretical positions. It concludes that being able to attain closures - finding ways to close off a section of the market and avoid direct competition - has historically been a crucial capability for individual retailers to thrive.
