Abstract

Purpose

This study aims to present a state-of-the-art review pertaining to the topic of multi-actor innovation in the music industry. Because of the changing nature of the marketing paradigm from product dominant to service dominant, as well as the emerging paradigm of open, collaborative and co-innovation, this study attempts to integrate and map the previous papers that have examined the concept of multi-actor innovation in the context of the music industry.

Design/methodology/approach

A systematic review is carried out to produce the analysis. Various scholarly articles from well-known databases are taken into considerations in this study. These papers are then classified based on the types of innovation, category and sub-category of innovation, value capture and value creation, as well as its general characteristics. This classification is primarily aimed at mapping the development of previous studies in the current field and examining the current research gaps to propose future research agendas.

Findings

Previous researchers have shown that innovation concepts have been developed into various streams, namely, closed, open, collaborative and co-innovation. In addition to this point, the debates regarding the consumers’ roles in the market have pinpointed that innovation also calls for more participative forms rather than isolated. Nevertheless, discussions that pertain to open, collaborative and co-innovation in the context of the music business, have still been lacking and, therefore, demand more explanations.

Originality/value

This study is the first to present the topic of multi-actor innovation in the music business to the scholarly literature. Based on the review carried out in this study, scholars that are particularly interested in the field of open, collaborative and co-innovation within the context of the music industry can comprehend the development of previous discussions and, therefore, justify future research agendas.

Abstract

Purpose

Previous work has asserted that the co-innovation process in the music business is composed of four stages, i.e. co-discovery, co-creation, co-delivery and co-capture. This study aims to re-examine and validate this proposed conceptualisation by gathering and interviewing additional respondents, specifically academics and professional event organisers, who were not formerly involved. By gaining more insight from different stakeholders, this study expects to gain more reliable results regarding the proposed concept derived from the previous study.

Design/methodology/approach

This study uses the case study method by carrying out qualitative interview data collection from 11 respondents. Narrative analysis is used in examining the findings. Pattern matching is used as the basis of the analysis using the proposed conceptualisation from co-discovery to co-capture of co-innovation as the rival analysis to the empirical findings discovered in this study. This paper also discusses how the validity and reliability of the qualitative analysis carried out are ensured.

Findings

This study supports the notion that the co-innovation process in the music industry follows the four stages of co-discovery, co-creation, co-delivery and co-capture. The respondents, from different professional backgrounds, interviewed in this study indicated and validated that the proposed framework aligns with their actual practices, expectations and realities, along with their specific roles in the music industry’s ecosystems.

Practical implications

The results of this study can be used as a reference in developing guidelines or policies for co-innovation practices in the music business, which previous studies have not explored, e.g. focusing only on preconditions for positive collaboration, open license and music for co-creation or discussions that are merely conceptual.

Originality/value

This study validates the co-innovation process in the music business proposed by the previous works, which integrates the value chain thinking concept within the analysis.

Abstract

Supply chain collaboration amongst independent firms often provides larger benefits from effectively satisfying end customer needs than working in isolation. However, a lack of awareness about the existence of constraints along the supply chain prevents the benefits of collaboration from being fully realised. This paper attempts to apply the theory of constraints approach to overcome difficulties in realising the potential benefits of supply chain collaboration. Specifically, it shows how the theory of constraints approach can be used to expose an inherent dilemma of collaboration and establish collaborative replenishment policy and collaborative performance metrics so that the chain members can work together to advance supply chain profitability. Several opportunities for future research are recommended.

Abstract

Purpose

A blockchain (BC) is a breakthrough technological invention that comprises entirely different mental models than conventional technology. This fundamental difference can potentially change the systems of many organizations since the current systems are built upon a centralized paradigm. The adoption of BC brings various benefits to an organization which can initiate changes to a business model (BM). However, the contribution of BC for business model innovation (BMI) is challenging to identify. Therefore, this study aims to understand and describe the adoption of BC for developing BMI.

Design/methodology/approach

This study presents a model that describes the adoption of BC for developing BMI. To justify the model, this study used an empirical approach based on multiple case study through a rigorous process. The case study selection process referred to the products or services that adopt BC to deliver to their customers and monetize their businesses, which resulted in six cases in different areas. Meanwhile, the data collection applied semi-structured interviews and adequate secondary data. The data/information was analyzed using a value proposition, creation, and capture framework.

Findings

The findings identify the adoption of BC in BMIs generated through value creation as a new technological sub-element. This technological adoption evidently affects value proposition and value capture in a different mode. Furthermore, through the model, this study classifies the adoption of BC in BMI based on two dimensions: (1) the level of complexity of BC adoption and (2) the intensity of BMI. The findings show that the cases in this study are dispersed among all quadrants of the conceptual model.

Originality/value

This study can serve as an antecedent for stakeholders in the innovation of BC-based BMs and their implementation patterns. Simultaneously, this study sheds light on the body of knowledge about BC adoption for developing BMI through a validated model from selected cases and technical experts. This study also describes the BC-based activity systems that provide the contributions and benefits from the technology.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper proposes an integrative framework for supply chain collaboration which is based on the reciprocal approach.

Design/methodology/approach

A reciprocal approach is adopted to capture the interaction phenomenon of different features of collaboration in attaining overall supply chain performance.

Findings

A collaborative supply chain framework is composed of five connecting features of collaboration, namely collaborative performance system, information sharing, decision synchronization, incentive alignment, and integrated supply chain processes.

Research limitations/implications

Further research could be carried out to capitalize the framework for diagnosing and improving supply chain collaboration.

Practical implications

The proposed framework enables the chain members to scrutinize key features of supply chain collaboration before and during collaborative initiatives.

Originality/value

Previous research on supply chain collaboration mainly assume the unilateral phenomenon of collaboration that focuses on a single feature such as information sharing or co‐managed inventory. The proposed framework for the first time explicitly addresses the interaction of different connecting features of collaboration.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper proposes an instrument to measure the extent of collaboration in a supply chain consisting of two members, suppliers and retailers.

Design/methodology/approach

The proposed model for collaboration incorporates collaborative practices in information sharing, decision synchronisation and incentive alignment. A collaboration index is introduced to measure the level of collaborative practices. A survey of companies in New Zealand was conducted to obtain data to test and evaluate the collaboration index.

Findings

The survey results confirmed the reliability and validity of the proposed collaboration index measure for measuring collaboration. The findings also showed that the collaboration index was positively associated with operational performance.

Research limitations/implications

Future research could consider larger sample sizes and cover other industry types.

Practical implications

Supply chain participants will be able to measure the extent of their collaboration and seek improvement in their performance.

Originality/value

This paper contributes to the literature by introducing a new index for measuring the extent of supply chain collaboration. This measure can be used by any participant (member) in a supply chain to identify the level of collaboration and seek improvement.

Abstract

Intensive competition in the market place has forced companies to respond more quickly to customer needs through faster product development and shorter delivery time. Increasing customer awareness and preferences have led to an unprecedented explosion in product variety. End customers give credit only to companies that are able to deliver products with excellent quality, and on time. However, the demand of customers for product variety, especially in the case of short life‐cycle products such as food, apparel, toys, and computers, makes it difficult for manufacturers and retailers to predict which particular variety of the products the markets will accept. To be effective in matching demand with supply, manufacturers and retailers need to collaborate in the supply chain.

Abstract

Intense competition forces companies to become involved in supply chain collaboration with their upstream and downstream partners. The key to ensuring that the participating members are progressing on the right track of creating the best‐in‐class practice is to conduct benchmarking. Benchmarking stimulates collective learning for performance improvement that brings benefits to all participating members. However, previous research has focused mainly on supply chain benchmarking at the intra‐company ‐‐ rather than the inter‐company ‐‐ level. Inter‐company benchmarking requires a new perspective for understanding collaborative learning amongst the participating members that encourages them to improve supply chain performance as a whole. This research aims to develop a benchmarking scheme for supply chain collaboration that links collaborative performance metrics and collaborative enablers. The proposed benchmarking scheme can be used to examine the current status of supply chain collaboration among the participating members, identify performance gaps and systematize improvement initiatives.

Abstract

Supply chain collaboration enables firms to achieve better performance. It requires close arrangements of collaborative practices among the participating members. Searching for better practices and ideas that lead to superior performance means that the chain members also need to benchmark their current collaborative practices to other collaborative supply chains. Benchmarking enables them to identify the highest standards of excellence in customer services and processes and implement necessary improvements to match or exceed these standards. This paper, reports a benchmarking study on supply chain collaboration between retailers and suppliers, which incorporates collaborative practices in information sharing, decision synchronisation, and incentive alignment. An empirical study was carried out to benchmark the profile of collaborative practices and operational performance. The study also compared differences in the use of collaborative practices from retailer and supplier perspectives.
