Which organizational capabilities and inter-organizational knowledge dynamics enable innovation within an ecosystem ?

Abstract : This dissertation is dealing with different topics such as ecosystem, absorptive capacity and radical innovation. From our systematic literature review of ecosystems based on a selection of 104 articles and books, we identify the invariants across the four diverging streams from the ecosystem approach and the seven diverging streams from the territorial approach toward the proposition of a new research framework. Our contribution aims at enriching the field of ecosystem with the strong theoretical background of the territorial approach. From our study of a joint venture in the Iranian context, our findings indicate that radical innovation is characterized by safety, quality, and planning challenges which engender delays, non-conformity to specifications, and additional costs. Our contribution aims at further developing the concept of “learning dyad” by characterizing a two-way learning between two organizations playing both roles of teachers and students. From our study of technological spin-offs in Grenoble context, our findings show the importance of spin-offs developing both potential and realized absorptive capacities to internalize customer knowledge and technology emergence awareness and to simultaneously offset customers’ lack of technical knowledge in formulating their needs. Our contribution aims at providing new insights to the area of customer involvement in the radical innovation process by examining how the level of customer involvement at different stages has improved or hindered the process of developing radical innovations.
