From resource allocation to strategy by Joseph L Bower ( )
15 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Joseph L. Bower and Clark G. Gilbert have collected together some of the leading experts on strategy to examine how strategy is actually made by company managers across the several levels of an organization. Is strategy a coherent plan conceived at the top by a visionary leader, or is it formed by a series of smaller decisions, not always reflecting what top management has in mind? Often it is by examining how options for using resources are developed and selected, that we can see. how a company's competitive position gets shaped. On the basis of this understanding, we can see better how these

A revised model of the resource allocation process by Joseph L Bower ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the 35 years since the first field research was conducted at National Products, we have learned a great deal about how companies allocate scarce resources to craft corporate strategy. We have presented and discussed many important contemporary contributions to our understanding of the resource allocation process (RAP) by authors who have built upon the RAP model. The working theory that continues to bind his collective research remains consistent: the way resources are allocated in the firm shapes the realized strategy of the firm. The fundamental implication of this theory is that understanding RAP is at the heart of understanding how strategy is made and how to craft better strategy

Mercury rising Knight Ridder's digital venture ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Case details the efforts of newspaper publisher Knight Ridder to create a digital venture. Knight Ridder launched the first online newspaper site, building a network of Internet sites. However, the company lost over $100 million in its core Internet operations, is missing important categories of advertising revenue, and is operating in an ad recession at the time of the case. Tracks the evolution of the venture that spans nearly a decade and can be summarized in three distinct periods: 1) initial launch and experimentation, 2) rapid expansion within the newspaper organization vs. operation as a separate venture, and 3) managing the venture after the Internet bubble has burst
Can competing frames co-exist : the paradox of threatened response by Clark G Gilbert ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Response to environmental change is at the heart of firm sustainability. In the case of disruptive technology, previous research describes this challenge as a problem of commitment. Because disruptive proposals do not fit the criteria considered in the existing resource allocation process, they are denied organizational commitment. The following research seeks to address the phenomenon where incumbents do commit substantial resources, but then force those commitments around their existing business rather than find new markets. The analysis draws on extensive multi-level, longitudinal field data collected from a single revelatory case of a newspaper company as its management responded to the Internet. The conceptual framework for the study links the resource allocation and threat rigidity literatures. The data show that threat framing helps build impetus and commitment for disruptive projects that would otherwise stall. However, this same threat-induced action invokes a set of rigidities that prove maladaptive in the face of disruptive change. The research suggests that the role of structure goes beyond resource allocation. Structural independence creates strategic de-coupling of threat and opportunity framing, allowing the simultaneous management of otherwise inconsistent frames
Beyond resource allocation : towards a process model of response to disruptive change by Clark G Gilbert ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The challenge of innovation in response to external change lies at the heart of firm sustainability. While external shifts can take many forms, the particular problem of disruptive change has proved particularly problematic for incumbent firms. Previous research has described the challenge as one of resource commitment. But what happens when firms do commit sufficient resources? Does overcoming the problem of commitment imply effective incumbent response? Grounding the research in a series of case study experiments, I inductively build toward a model of firm response. There is evidence that the challenges of resource commitment described in the literature do exist and, uninterrupted, will act to starve the new business of the necessary resources for development. However, a strong sense of threat to the core organization can act as a catalyst to motivate resources that would otherwise be denied. Unfortunately, the same threat motivated mechanism that is required to trigger resources also leads to aggressive rigidity around the established market and product. This finding is supported by research in the threat rigidity literature. Finally, there are copying mechanisms that allow firms to de-couple the resource motivating benefits of threatened response from its rigidity producing behaviors. Separating the new business from the core organization allows managers the independence necessary to frame their efforts as an independent opportunity from the established business, relaxing the response rigidity and allowing the venture to innovate in a market that values the unique attributes of the new technology
