Readings for module 5 (UPDATED, READ THIS!)

As I told in the lecture (20.11.2018), there will be more than one way to complete next weeks' (module 5) reading tasks.


You still have the possibility to read the article we had in the original course plan. If you want to read this one, you don't have to read anything else. So only 1 article needed if you read this.

Jacobides, M. G., Cennamo, C., & Gawer, A. (2018). Towards a theory of ecosystems. Strategic Management Journal.


However, instead of reading Jacobides et al (2018) you can select two articles from the following list. Most of these are Harvard Business Review Digital articles. SO THEY ARE NOT AVAILABLE FROM GOOGLE SCHOLAR.

How to get them?

  1. Go to
  2. Click "EBSCOhost"
  3. Click "Select all" and "Continue"
  4. Search for article name, e.g. "What 40 Years of Research Reveals About the Difference Between Disruptive and Radical Innovation"
  5. Click "PDF Full text"

Here are the articles. Select two and include them to your learning diary.
