The Resources Endowment of Mobile SME in the Emerging Application Store Networked Innovation Paradigm

The shift from a stand-alone innovation approach to networked innovation can pose several challenges to a Small Business with reference to the Resources, Competencies and Capabilities (R&C&C) leveraged on to achieve competitive advantage. The present study analyzes this issue, proposing a resource-based fuzzy framework to investigate the effect of such change on a Mobile Small Business' resource endowment. The focus at the empirical level is on the rise of the mobile application store model as a substitute to the original mobile portal model, carrying out multiple case studies and applying fuzzy set theory on an extensive set of significant companies.
