Topic: VALUE CREATION, CAPTURE, AND SUSTAINABILITY IN CHANGING MARKETPLACES

The goal of firms is to create and capture value as profits.  Sustaining the ability to capture profits over a long period of time is difficult, often because new firms emerge with superior capabilities and business models.  These problems are often exacerbated in online spaces where technology is changing rapidly, new firms are entering, and business models must adapt at an increasing rate.  We will consider these questions with a particular focus on firms whose initial competitive advantage is based on strong network externalities serving as barriers to new competitors.
