7 per cent of firms in the UK are classified as 'high growth firms' with annual employment growth of 20% for three consecutive years (Anyadike-Danes et al., 2011). Compared to a number of other OECD economies, UK firms lag behind in terms of aspired and realised growth (Bravo Biosca, 2010). To develop its international competitiveness the UK needs to improve its record in growing its business firms using business models. This seminar series focuses on seeking to maximise the contribution of business models to UK jobs and productivity growth, facilitate high-quality collaborative research on business models and performance; and maximise the policy and strategy impact of business model research. It is widely recognised that growth is strongly influenced by a range of issues such as social, institutional and cultural - Phan, 2004; Davidsson and Wiklund, 2006), issues that need a business modelling approach.
The aim of the first seminar is to develop our understanding of business models. The seminar will provide an understanding of business models, by breaking down the business model into its constituent parts and exploring their perhaps dynamic nature. It will examine current business applications and specifically explore the links between the business model and strategic decision-making performance indicators, innovation and creativity.
This seminar is the FIRST in a series of eight seminars. More information relating to the other seminars can be found via the following flyer - Business Models Seminar Series
This event will take place on the 7th February 2014
