      Nowadays, various knowledge-based companies (KBCs) have been formed in science and technology incubators to commercialize ideas in Iran. If these companies fail to achieve the desired growth, their losses for incubators and the country will be doubled. The purpose of the study was to develop a model for the growth of KBCs to determine the indicators of entry into incubators, growth stages of under studied KBCs and also to determine the features of each growth stage. The incubators of IROST and the Science and Technology Park (STP) of Guilan Province were selected as the case of study and a mixed research method was adopted. Data were collected through two instruments including interview and questionnaire. In the qualitative phase, 43 interviews and in the quantitative phase, 75 questionnaires were applied. Data analysis in qualitative and quantitative phases was performed using MAXQDA10 and SPSS25 software, respectively. The results showed that the indicators of entry into incubators were divided into three levels: individual, company and Incubator, so that the indicators of company level and incubator were the most and the least important, respectively. Based on the findings of the growth stages of KBCs, there are 4 stages including "center of prosperity and creativity", "pre-growth or initial growth or research core or technology core", "medium growth or growth or technology unit" and "post-growth or high growth or tenant unit" were identified. The findings of this study can help managers in making their policy in supporting KBCs at different stages of their growth Manuscript profile

      Nowadays, the importance of nobility has cumulatively grown among increasing competition between corporations and myriad of researchers and managers gravitate towards business model innovation as the guarantor of profitability and persistence. In spite of various models and frameworks related to business model innovation, no comprehensive model has been proposed so far to recognize and priority characteristics of business model innovation. In order to proposed a framework by systematic literature review of articles indexed in WOS and SCOPUS have been collected and 42 selected articles have been examined, interpreted and eventually combined by means of meta-synthesis method. It was found that the characteristics of business model innovation can be categorized as the overall four frames of innovation in content (including 2 macro-definitions of 1.value chain activities, 2.intra-organizational activities), innovation in structure, innovation in governance and innovation in value capture. Then the importance and priority of characteristics was determined using Shanon method. Eventually, requisite suggestions according to the findings of research have been presented.

      Today, the competitive environment of banks, especially in the field of electronic banking services, is changing drastically, and service innovation has become very important and vital for service companies to increase their resources and dynamic organizational capabilities in order to increase innovation in banking services. Despite this importance, insufficient studies have been conducted on innovation in some of the country's service industries (such as the electronic banking industry). The purpose of this study is to identify indicators and sub-indicators of e-banking service innovation based on dynamic capabilities in the bank and to determine the communication and their effectiveness. In this regard, based on documentary studies and in-depth study of the literature and with the help of fuzzy Delphi method and the opinion of 10 experts, the areas of e-banking services, from 46 identified sub-criteria, to 13 sub- criteria for service innovation and 17 sub- criteria for dynamic capabilities Was reduced. criteria of service innovation and dynamic capabilities based on theoretical foundations, were classified into 11 main criteria and in the form of a general concept entered into the analysis of interpretive structural modeling / fuzzy MICMAC and by developing an integrated model to measure the effectiveness of criteria. The results showed that the effectiveness of the criterion "Perception of user needs and technological options" is better than other criteria and vice versa, the effectiveness of the criterion "New service delivery system - technological component" is weaker than other criteria Manuscript profile

      The readiness of organizations to establish management systems is an important issue. The purpose of this study is to provide a model for organizational readiness to accept the model of excellence in the Azad University. In this study, a combined (qualitative and quantitative) sequential exploratory method was used. The method used in the qualitative part of the research is foundation data theory. In the present study, in order to collect data in the qualitative part, the interview tool was used and in the quantitative part, a questionnaire was used. The statistical population of the study includes professors of management in the free universities of Guilan province. In the qualitative section, in order to conduct interviews, the opinions of 10 professors related to the research topic and in the quantitative section, in order to complete the questionnaires, the opinions of 150 people were used. In order to analyze the data obtained from the interviews, the coding method was used in MAXQDA software and in order to discover the relationship between the identified factors, the interpretive structural modeling method was used in MICMAC software. Data analysis from semi-structured interviews consisted of 180 open source code in the form of nine classification concepts and in four main categories including managerial and attitudinal-behavioral factors (as link variables), external factors (as independent variables), and the establishment of the excellence model. (As dependent variables) were divided. Data analysis of the quantitative part of the research was also performed using the partial least squares method in smartPLS software. The results of the quantitative part of the research also showed that all three factors include managerial factors (creating an atmosphere conducive to change, planning and organizing, learning, commitment), attitude-behavioral factors (perceived usefulness and perceived ease) and external factors (policies and rules). Upstream, credits, and culture) have a significant role on the readiness of the free university in implementing the model of excellence, and among these, managerial factors have played the most effective role. Also, the attitude-behavioral factors of the performers have an effective role on the readiness of the university to establish a model of excellence. On the other hand, external factors, both directly and indirectly and through managerial factors and attitudinal-behavioral factors have an effective role in the readiness of the Azad University to establish a model of excellence, so that this factor is the main motivator of Azad University affiliates to establish a model of excellence. . Findings show that the readiness of universities to establish models of excellence depends to a large extent on the performance of its managers. Highly committed managers can create a positive atmosphere in the university for the acceptance and implementation of those models with proper planning, control and supervision, and thus address many internal problems such as attitudes and behavioral factors of members of the organization, which mainly manifest themselves in the face of change.

      In a research which this paper reflects its results , a model for open innovation in banking industry is offered. In fact , the relationship of open innovation as latent variable and the influential factors are stated in a model. In this regard, with reviewing literature and previous researches, a conceptual model for open innovation in banking industry was designed. This model includes three main constructs like internal factors (technological resources, capability of idea attraction ), external factors(external knowledge resources, technological changes) and the relationship factors as trust. By conducting interviews with experts regarding the model constructs and doing statistical analysis, it has been approved. Then in a field study in Parsian Bank, by distribution of questionnaires, the relevant data for approval of the model ingredients were gathered. At last, by using structural equation modeling and regression equations in path analysis form and using SPSS and LISREL Softwares , the data were analyzed and the interrelation among latent variable and independent variables were stated clearly. The findings show that, in internal side ,technological sources doesn’t show any direct relation with open innovation, while the capability of idea attraction, had direct relation with open innovation. In external side, knowledge and technological change had positive and direct relation with open innovation. In interaction side, trust had positive and direct relation with open innovation. The model of this research can be useful for cultivating open innovation in banking industries and as a powerful tool for policy makers and planner in this sector. Manuscript profile

      The ongoing development process is the most important mindset of human societies and determines the degree of difference between countries. So the important question that is going on in the current world is how and why some countries have reached a higher level of development indicators, while others are at the bottom of the table?
