PhD proposal presentation
The School of Management invites you to a PhD proposal presentation by Agung Fahrudi:
Exploring the relationship between explorative and exploitative learning as a strategy for innovation.
The question of how innovation occurs is at the heart of innovation research. While a large part of the innovation process remains unclear for scholars due to the uncertainties inherent in innovation activities, the development of innovation lends itself to the evolutionary thinking of "evolutionary economics".
This study will explore how the interrelationship between explorative and exploitative learning, from a strategic perspective, impact on dynamic capabilities and ultimately innovation. In addition, this study will investigate the impact of internal and external factors on explorative and exploitative learning of an organization.
A multiple-case study method using an interpretive approach will be used to examine three individual medium-sized business enterprises in a similar industry that have been engaged in innovation activities in Indonesia. The medium-sized enterprises are chosen because they provide a degree of organizing complexities compared to their smaller counterparts.
The findings of the study will provide further insights to understand the process of innovation stemming from learning; specifically how the interrelationship between explorative and exploitative learning will impact on the development of dynamic capabilities and ultimately affect the level of innovation. Further understanding of the process of innovation offers more guidance for managers (to direct their organizational learning) in undertaking their innovation journey.
