By: Dwibedy, PunyashlokMaterial type: Computer fileComputer filePublication details: Ahmedabad Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad 2022Description: 136p. Includes bibliographical referencesSubject(s): Innovation strategies | RBV traditionsDDC classification: TH 2022-9 Online resources: eThesis Summary: Innovation is considered a multi-level construct and it takes the form of (i) inputs and (ii) outputs. Based on this, the thesis considers three inter-related questions in the form of three essays: (1) What factors (firm, industry, institutional) affect innovation input choices and their combinations at the firm level? (2) How do complementarities in innovation inputs impact firm performance? and (3) How do complementarities in innovation outputs affect firm performance? The first essay explores the relationship between innovation input choices and their determinants based on firm, industry, and institutional factors. The strategic choice of innovation inputs by firms reflects the conditions under which make (R&D) and buy (purchase of technology) alternatives are complements or substitutes. If firms choose to combine R&D and purchased technology, the two are complements, but if the opposite happens, they are perceived as substitutes. We take a step back and understand which elements affect these innovation input choices by using factors rooted in RBV traditions and the TCE framework both individually and in combination to analyze their impact on such innovation inputs.

Innovation is considered a multi-level construct and it takes the form of (i) inputs and (ii) outputs. Based on this, the thesis considers three inter-related questions in the form of three essays: (1) What factors (firm, industry, institutional) affect innovation input choices and their combinations at the firm level? (2) How do complementarities in innovation inputs impact firm performance? and (3) How do complementarities in innovation outputs affect firm performance?
