Spin-offs as Core Vehicles for Business Model Innovation: An Attention-Based View

Item Type Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Abstract This study explores corporate spin-offs as core vehicles for business model innovation in incumbent firms. Business model innovation includes the discovery of entirely new ways of creating and capturing value and requires firms to look beyond their industry boundaries. Following the attention-based view of the firm, a favorable organizational set-up has to be established in order to seize and act upon the exploration of such novel opportunities. Therefore, we first study the organizational structures of four spin-offs, how these affected the regulation of attention and, in turn, influenced the spin-off initiative in achieving business model innovation. Based on an in-depth study of four cases, we contribute to literature on business model innovation, spin-offs and the attention-based view.
