Background and Purpose
Today, more than ever before, it is unambiguously clear for business managers, policy makers, and academics that we are living in an era of disruption. Disruptive technologies (Christensen, 2013; Christensen, Raynor, & McDonald, 2011; 2015; Patrickson, 2021) such as Cloud Computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning drive innovations which change dramatically and drastically how customers perceive and use goods and services. They enable new forms of digital innovation that go along with a change of the fabric of organisational structure and increase flexibility in value creation processes (Yoo, Henfridsson & Lyytinen, 2010; Nambisan et al., 2017; Skog Wimelius & Sandberg, 2018). Organizational strategies and designs are also impacted through phenomena such as open innovation (Chesbrough, Vanhaverbeke, & West, 2006; Eftekhari & Bogers, 2015; Gassmann, 2006; Miotti & Sachwald, 2003; Pisano & Verganti, 2008), participatory design (Sanders and Stappers, 2008; Fritzsche et al., 2020) or crowdsourcing (Howe, 2006; Djelassi & Decoopman, 2013; Roth et al., 2015). Disruption finally comes in the form of a creative destruction of entire industries by technological innovation, leading to new dominant designs and prompting often far-reaching social change (Schumpeter, 1942; 1947; Bergek et al., 2013; Schiavi & Behr, 2018; Roth et al., 2018).
Whereas the disruptive power of creative destruction is commonly being associated with individual entrepreneurs, the invisible forces of markets, or neoliberal doctrines (Harvey, 2006), recent claims for a transition from market to mission economies steered by an entrepreneurial state (Mazzucato, 2021) raise the question as to what degree state organisations and other governmental bodies are—or should be capable of—acting as creative destroyers …
