Extending Value Logic Thinking to Value Logic Portfolios

Thomas Ritter, Poul Houman Andersen

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


    Based on value creation logic theory (Stabell & Fjeldstad, 1998), this paper suggests an extension of the original Stabell & Fjeldstad model by an additional fourth value logic, the value system logic. Furthermore, instead of only allowing one dominant value creation logic for a given firm or transaction, an understanding of firms and transactions as a portfolio of value logics (i.e. an interconnected coexistence of different value creation logics) is proposed. These additions to the original value creation logic theory imply interesting avenues for both, strategic decision making in firms and for research into strategic management.
