- The global game 2.0 (digitalization, structural change and the Swedish computer game marvel). The project was initiated 2013 and is financed by Svenska Handelsbanken; Wallander's and Hedelius research foundation. Our study contributes to the growing literature and research field about the internationalization of digitized companies. In a quantitative study, where we interviewed hundreds of Swedish game companies, we have gained insight into this phenomenon. The survey concerns several business theory areas, international business and marketing, but also user-driven and open innovation research. It has an overall focus on processes and cooperation with external players and counterparts in product development. In short, the survey investigates how gaming companies benefit from external knowledge and collaborate outside the company's borders, nationally and internationally, in game development.
- The frustration of subsidiary managers: communicating business opportunities from the periphery to headquarters of multinational corporations. Part two. Given that innovation and development are key to the competitive advantage of multinational companies, a good and effective communication about business opportunities is a condition for success. We study how opportunities for new business development discovered in foreign units of multinational companies are communicated and adopted within the multinational organization. Following up our previous case study we conduct cross-sectional studies on the communication between subsidiary managers and headquarters in order to develop and test concepts and variables that play a role.
