Conceptual, Theoretical and Empirical Issues"
Call for Papers and
and exploitation are two concepts addressing creating
value by entailing the development of new knowledge and
experimenting for more radical innovation, and by extending current
knowledge or using past knowledge to innovate incrementally
order to survive and prosper, and thus, gain competitive advantage,
firms must be perfect in both exploitative and exploratory
activities. To be able to accomplish these activities, companies
invest their attention and resources on these activities. Making
investment choices among exploration and
exploitation influences the now and the future of the firms.
these two concepts are so important, the fact that there is still no
consensus on their conceptual definitions and measurements is
causing these concepts to be incompletely understood.
these two concepts are competing to each other or complementary,
whether firms have to achieve balance between the two or they do
better by cycling through periods of exploration and
exploitation, whether firms perform better by
specializing solely on exploration, and last, but not
least, how to balance exploration and
exploitation across multiple domains are the issues that are
needed to be understood.
invite academic researchers, company executives and public policy
makers to come together to discuss and understand these issues at
London Imperial College, UK
