Structure of presentation
  • Aims of the study
  • Main drivers of innovations & interactions research
  • Conceptual model considerations
  • Some empirical evidence
  • Propositions for future research
  • Conclusion
research motivation
Research motivation
  • Main aim – development of a conceptual model for an empirical qualitative study on innovativeness in buyer-supplier interaction and value creation networks
  • Theoretic motivation – searching for integration of overall marketing and interaction frameworks to study innovation processes
  • Empirical motivation – contradictions in Russian business practice
overall marketing perspective

research context some empirical findings from scm study 2006
Research context: some empirical findings from SCM study 2006
  • Results of a round table on Purchasing Strategy & SCM in Russia (June 2007)
    • Innovations – main sources of competitive advantage
    • Innovative collaboration with suppliers – key aims in supplier relationships development
    • High emphasis on innovativeness of strategy
  • Results of an empirical study 2006
    • Very low emphasis on innovations
    • Innovations as part of supplier interaction process
    • Assessment of R&D department involvement in SCM
preconditions
Preconditions
  • Type of interaction (research context):
    • Dyadic
      • Key supplier relationship
  • Type of product (5-point Likert scale)
      • Unique product – 2,82 (out of 5)
      • Innovative product – 2,69
  • New products success
      • Number of new products (3,60)
      • Time-to-market (3,38)
      • New products success (3,58)
  • Readiness for R&D outsourcing
      • Current (1,85), future (1,97)

  • Technology-based market opportunities (3,61) Speed of technology changes (3,28)
  • Probability of new product development in industry (3,26)
  • Technology trend forecast-ability (3,14)
potential sources of advantage
Potential sources of advantage
  • Potential sources of advantage
    • Integration potential – similar motivation, interest in joint efforts
    • Knowledge creation & knowledge sharing
  • Main aims of the companies in the field of supply and strategic purchasing:
    • Joint R&D:
      • 11th position in priorities, relevant for 11,8% if firms in a sample
      • #1 – cost reduction
      • #2 – creation of long-term supplier relationships
      • #3 – delivery time reduction

  • Top priorities in supplier relationships development:

#1 Quality of products & services (4,78 out of 5)

#2 Profit as relationship outcome (4,54)

#3 Cost reduction (4,51)

#4 Trust (4,35)

type of innovation potential outcomes
Type of innovation & potential outcomes
  • Type of innovation:
    • Process innovation – in research context of supplier relationships
      • Emphasis on improvement of operational effectiveness
        • Time management
        • Reduction of delivery time
  • Potential advantages addressed in the study
    • Strategic
    • Customer-oriented
joint functions execution outcome relationship
Joint functions execution-outcome relationship
  • New product success – n.s.
  • Differentiation – n.s.
  • Performance:
    • Joint problem solution – performance
    • Joint R&D – performance

Maybe problem because of the single item measurement of function’s involvement.

conclusions
Conclusions
  • Two perspectives can be integrated to study innovation processes
    • Overall creation of SCA: link between marketing and purchasing to enhance innovations
    • Innovations as result of previous relationships experience and matching potential
  • Integration of both approaches can provide a basis for a longitudinal study
  • Presented empirical results are taken from a study not developed to measure innovativeness, nevertheless the results show:
    • Contradiction between qualitative and quantitative study results (round table and survey);
    • Some attempts to build an innovative collaboration;
    • Potential for further research using SEM methodology.
