Innovation & entrepreneurship in business ecosystems: A study on the need for a paradigm shift in Turkey
In the thesis, as human dominated ecosystems, vital strategies of healthy and sustainable business ecosystems are analyzed from the point of the new business trend. The structural complexity of these new manmade ecosystems is clearly defined via business ecosystem actors, agents, their roles and strategies. The business ecosystems of the global top four countries together with BRIC countries in regard to the Global Competitiveness Report (2013-2014) are deeply analyzed to explain what the guidelines of health and sustainability in their own human ecosystems are and how these guidelines function to capture success. The confirmation of this analysis is obtained through a set of interview questions designed in terms of ecosystem strategies and operations. After the analysis of the two groups of countries and their companies’ review through symbiotic relationships, the business trend in Turkey is focused using a customized chart to provide a healthy measurement.
The result of this analysis depicts a framework within global measures in which the new global competition strategies including innovation and R&D with advanced technology and entreprenurship lie. In the spotlight of all the analysis provided in the thesis, the similarities and differences in Turkey’s business ecosystems are identified, the impact of pros and cons of these similarities and differences on global business ecosystems and on Turkey’s economy are compared. Reminding of the extinction of the traditional way of business and the disappearance of mass production with the concept of “one fits for all”, an urgent call for a shift to the new business trend, at least, through the improvement of the weaker parts in Turkey is made in order not to be too late for a healthy economy.
