This year Jorge Louzada -PhD student at the School of Business and Management, QueenMary, University of London– won the best developmental paper award on the Strategy Track for the paper “Business Model Renewal in Mature Industries: An Empirical Investigation”, that can be found on the BAM 2014 conference proceedings:
“Business Model Renewal in Mature Industries: An Empirical Investigation” By Louzada, J.
This work is an empirically-driven investigation of business models in mature industries. The analysis begins by examining the triggers for business model renewal, and the main research contributions are (i) the level of analysis applied by managers in relation to business models and their components; (ii) the context used for business model formation in mature industries; and (iii) the supplier-centred multiple case-study approach that differs from previous work in the business models literature.
The paper was selected around 70 papers submitted to the strategy track, of which 30 were selected to be presented during the conference, most of them by senior academics of the area. The category of Strategy centres around any conceptual, methodological or empirical papers that research on “Strategy” or “Strategic Management” theory and practice. The Strategy track particularly welcomes papers that relate to contemporary issues or challenges conventional wisdom from novel perspectives.
