3 My Research Focus Strategic and organisational changes facilitated by digital technologies in different sectors and domains How firms manage the transition to new digital technologies, new business models and new organisational forms Research projects on ‘Sustainable and Scalable Business Models in the Digital Economy’ Addressing ‘Societal Challenges’ by following robust business principles (ageing, social inclusion, sustainable development) SiDE, SALT, LimbsAlive, NEMOG … © Feng Li, 20153

4 What are the creative industries? ‘What began as an opportunistic yoking together of art and industry in cultural policy for purposes of advocacy and investment has now been enthusiastically adopted by politicians, analysts and educators around the world as an umbrella term covering all or some of the arts, media and entertainment industries and associated branches of the knowledge economy.’ (Bilton, 2007: xvi). © Feng Li, 20154

5 The creative industries An umbrella term for those industries ‘based on individual creativity, skill and talent and have the potential to create wealth and jobs through developing intellectual property’ 13 sub-sectors explicitly identified A significant and rapidly growing segment of the economy © Feng Li, 20155

7 Why creative industries? An ideal domain for systematic examination of the digital transformation of business models Full range of organisations - from large multinationals to micro-businesses Full range of activities – – digital native sectors (such as digital games) where many new business models are developed and adopted – traditional sectors that have been significantly affected by digital technologies (e.g. Publishing, design and music) – areas where the full impacts of digital technologies are still to emerge (e.g. fine art, cultural heritage) © Feng Li, 20157

8 This research Systematic literature review Two strands of empirical research Primarily qualitative to identify emerging trends Initial ideas in a pilot project Primarily funded by the Research Councils UK (RCUK) under SiDE (£12.6m) Follow up project – NEMOG (£1.2m) © Feng Li, 20158

12 Emerging trends Exclusivity through personalisation Association and brand extension Pay as much as you like and dynamic pricing ‘Wisdom of the crowd’ Significant changes in - – Revenue models in value propositions – Value sensing and value capture in value architecture – Customer relationships management in activity architecture © Feng Li, 201512

13 Three levels of changes Digital information and interaction Digital extension of traditional business models Digital transformation of traditional business models Limited evidence on the emergence of unprecedented, genuinely novel business models © Feng Li, 201513

14 Digital transformation of business models Original objective: To identify new or radically reconfigured business models enabled by digital technologies Key finding: Digital technologies primarily used to reconfigure key components of traditional business models, or deploy other types of business models to supplement or replace traditional business models Reconfigured or ‘other’ business models are often not new or novel - clear antecedents can be found elsewhere. The digital transformation of business models is not necessarily about creating radically novel or new business models that did not exist before, but in allowing organisations to deploy a wider range of business models than previously available to them © Feng Li, 201514

15 What is a NEW business model? Unprecedented new idea – very rare Unprecedented context – borrow ideas from one area and apply in new areas Unprecedented impact – modify and scale up a business model to produce significant impact Unprecedented combinations – the portfolio models? © Feng Li, 201515

16 The portfolio models: Four variants The market portfolio model - deploy two or more business models to tackle different markets or market niches (e.g. design) The product portfolio model - new niche products from different stages of work-in-progress (e.g. digital arts) The product-service portfolio model – sell experience as well as final product (e.g. the 360 room) Multi-sided business model - interactions with multiple stakeholders upstream, downstream and horizontally in a complex value network or eco-system (ebay, alibaba, 360 degree contract etc.) © Feng Li, 201516

17 Different levels of integration A loose collection of discrete business models The hybrid models where some key components are shared Full integration of multiple business models as new business model © Feng Li, 201517

18 Financial sustainability & stakeholder credibility Maximising revenues from different markets or market niches, different stages of work in progress, or multiple sides of the market - reduces risks and increases resilience Previously insignificant markets or market niches grow in business volume and the traditional main market declines, the nature of the business is transformed Increase stakeholder credibility © Feng Li, 201518

19 Conclusions Pervasive change of business models in the creative industries All layers and all components of value proposition, value architecture and activity architecture All sectors of creative industries in different types of organisations Significantly affect financial sustainability and stakeholder credibility © Feng Li, 201519

20 Conclusions …. cont Not about creating radically new or novel business models that did not exist before Enable the deployment of a wider range of business models than previously available Traditional business models adapted and applied to different ranges of products online Increasing adoption of the portfolio model across different sectors © Feng Li, 201520

21 Future research Define conditions when particular business models can be deployed - long term financial sustainability and stakeholder credibility Methodological challenge - very early stage of development with limited empirical presence Policy interventions and incentives © Feng Li, 201521
