    • Given the complex and interdependent nature of innovation, it is a diverse phenomenon which takes place both in high‐ and low‐tech industries. The purpose of this paper is to increase our understanding about low‐tech industries’ innovation‐related activities and the specific capabilities of the companies that influence those. To achieve this purpose this study has performed an empirical analysis of the Swedish context of the Swedish Electroplating and Surface Treatment Industry (ESTI) and the characteristics of the companies operating in it. It investigated how the companies perceived their expertise and innovative activities in comparison with their main competitors. The main types of innovation the ESTI companieshad undertaken in a three‐year period (2004–2006) were studied. The research and development (R&D) and personnel qualification improvement expenditures were explored. The study looked into collaboration and the factors which companies perceived as important in order to collaborate. Our empirical evidence shows that innovation in the ESTI is shaped notby R&D but by other determinants, such as specific and rare capabilities in, for example, processing technologies, logistics, ability to spot, evaluate and exploit external knowledge as well as their ability to establish and sustain intercompany relationships. Strong relationships and integration with customers and suppliers emerge as pivotal for the innovation‐related activities in the ESTI. Additionally, close collaboration, facilitated by a strong intermediate institution, such as the Swedish Association of Surface Treatment Companies (Svensk YtbehandlingsFörening – SYF, also shape the innovation‐related activities in the ESTI.

  • Centaurs and Entrepreneurs in the Bulgarian Equine Industry : The Case of Novex Horse Riding Club
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Case studies book on entrepreneurship and innovation and business creation and management. - Ruse, Bulgaria : Ruse University. - 978-954-712-517-9 ; s. 178-185
  • Bokkapitel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This case study is based on results from research and collaboration between Vaggeryd municipality, Sweden and Jönköping International Business School, Sweden. The last stage of this long-term research project was to increase understanding of entrepreneurship and equine-related business organizations in two different contexts (Bulgaria and UK). The equine industry is growing organically and is an unusual context in which to study entrepreneurship. This case is based on both primary and secondary data, resulting from extensive empirical research and displays the tradition of horse breeding in Bulgaria, together with some contemporary aspects of the sector. The focus is on one particular Bulgarian equine business from the Ruse region of Bulgaria – the Novex horse riding club and its owner Mr. Emil Rusev. However, it also incorporates the points of view of the other studied Bulgarian equine entrepreneurs (Centaurs). The attitudes towards horse riding, strategies for attracting customers and some steps for overcoming obstacles in Emil’s entrepreneurial activity are presented. Possible options for future development of the Novex club and for the whole equine industry are discussed.
