Collaborative project business model innovation for horizontal leadership in projects: Qualitative empirical research in the offshore wind energy ecosystem

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


The research sheds light on how collaborative project Business Model Innovation (BMI) can enable innovation for more energy production with less costs within offshore wind park energy ecosystems. The empirical qualitative research took place from September 2017 to June 2018 in a Baltic Sea port.

The findings highlight the essentials of successful collaborative project BMI in the research context. The findings are summarized and illustrated in the model called "Project FrontEco BMI". The approach shown in the model created value through higher reliability and faster flow through the port with less investments required. The contribution shed light on the hitherto black box of ecosystem innovation to contain BMI on overall project level enabled by heterogeneous individual and organisational preferred behaviours and horizontal knowledge creation in project execution.
