Session 263

Developing a Value Creation Theory

Track E

Date: Tuesday, October 6, 2015


Time: 17:30 – 18:45


Room: Plaza Court 6

Session Chair:

  • Thomas Ritter, Copenhagen Business School


Abstract: A central ambition of strategic management research is an understanding of how firms accumulate wealth, generate economic rents or, in other words, how firms create value. Despite notable contributions towards a coherent definition, the development of a “Value Creation Theory” (VCT) is in its infantry due to a lack of a consistent definition of “value creation” and its related terms, such as “value capture” and “value appropriation”. Likewise, the interplay between different actors simultaneous value creation in markets, relationships and networks has only recently been advanced. In order to advance VCT further, this panel session combines resource-based view, demand-side perspective, stakeholder analysis, social value, among others. The panel session aims at building a foundation for the further advancement of value creation theory.
