The relationship between institutions and value creation in software developmentmodels

Risultato della ricerca: Article

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to analyse the possibility for firms to consider institutional settings tosystematically direct dispersed individual efforts of discovery and invention towards objects (products orprocesses) of their interest in order to enhance their value creation capacity.Design/methodology/approach – The authors conduct a comparative analysis of the differentinstitutional settings within which software products are invented and produced – closed producer-centredmodel, open user-centred model, and hybrid interactive producer-user model.Findings – The authors draw indications regarding the possibility to design institutional settings for valuecreation and the potential pitfalls tied to these strategic tools.Originality/value – A theoretical framework is elaborated in order to understand the different ways inwhich institutional contexts influence and direct value creation processes. The model analysed shows thefirms’ deliberate attempt to stimulate a dynamic process of social interaction and communication which mayfoster higher levels of creativity and innovation. In order to guarantee the necessary accessibility and tosufficiently motivate external programmers towards the perception of a new code, the firm has to surrenderthe traditional source through which it appropriates value: barriers to the accessibility of the code developedthrough IPRs. The adoption of an institutional setting which facilitates dynamic value creation processessuggests, therefore, the need to turn to dynamic mechanisms for value appropriation in parallel.
