Disputation i företagsekonomi
Alexandre Sukhov försvarar sin doktorsavhandling i företagsekonomi, "The human side of idea screening".
Nedan följer en kort beskrivning av innehållet (ur baksidestexten):
”What is a good idea for innovation? This is indeed a fascinating question. Practitioners want to know how to find good ideas that will contribute towards successful innovation projects, while researchers may face the challenging task of understanding what is “good” to begin with. In order to find an answer to this question, I have chosen to focus this doctoral thesis on the phenomenon of idea screening, whereby people engage in the process of determining the quality of ideas for innovations.
In my own view, idea screening is an activity that consists of perception (the process of making sense and becoming aware) and judgement (reaching conclusions about what has been perceived). Breaking down these concepts into further detail has allowed me to zoom in on the core of what leads to the perception of a “good” idea, gradually changing my initial understanding away from “what constitutes a good idea for innovation?” towards “what makes people think that the idea is good?”. This change of perspective emphasizes the importance of the human side of idea screening and feeds further into a discussion about whether ideas present opportunities that can be discovered, or whether ideas are constructed by the people who create these opportunities. The answer is undoubtedly – both.”
