Research Title and a short description of project:
The Telecommunications Incumbent: an endangered species. Can the incumbents provide an insight into the realities of innovation within large mature organisations?
Set in the context of the telecommunications industry my research uses the Resource Based View (Penrose,1959; Wernerfelt, 1984; Barney, 1991) as a lens to examine the organisational attributes of long established telecommunications incumbents and explores whether these attributes can influence innovation within large mature business enterprises.
