Dr. Clemente Minonne is a researcher and lecturer at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts / Lucerne School of Engineering and Architecture. At the Institute for Innovation and Technology Management (IIT), he heads the Research Group "Digital Business Engineering (DBE)" and conducts research and teaching on this topic. With his dissertation "Towards an integrative approach for managing implicit and explicit knowledge" (2004-2008), Dr. Clemente Minonne, in the sense of Grounded Theory and through Action Research, investigated the implications of the change from product-focused companies to knowldge-oriented business models and the transition to a Digtal Economy and a Digital Society. In his current research activities, Dr. Clemente Minonne is dedicated to the topic of "Digital Business Ecosystems".
He defines his basic understanding of the difference between product and service as follows:
"A service is the experience, or the value, that the actors involved perceive when they bring their implicit knowledge into the respective (business) process, which can happen asynchronously. The real good is only a means to an end, yes, so to speak, the necessary tool or a kind of channel to enable this experience, or precisely this value." (Minonne, 2008)
In a scientific context, he focuses on empirical social research and works methodically in the sense of Grounded Theory with Action Research in order to enable the basis for the servitisation and smartification of business processes or products in companies by means of analyses of complex business processes.
Dr. Clemente Minonne is founder and chairman of iProcess AG and founder of iBridge GmbH. As a management consultant he was able to assist companies over many years in assessing "service-dominant business models" with regard to the consequences of the "make", "buy" or "build" options and thus build up extensive experience. In his publications, he attaches great importance to imparting stringent methodological approaches in order to determine the potential of digitalisation measures. He is the author of the current book „Business-Analyse: Konzepte, Methoden und Instrumente zur Optimierung der Business-Architektur“. He is recognised by the practice community internationally for his proven and strong methodological skills in the context of "Digital Business Ecosystems", which takes into account not only hard but also soft factors. Renowned national and international private-sector companies and public administrations work together with him regularly, not only to coach and advise.
Dr. Clemente Minonne studied from 1990 to 1995 Electrical Engineering (Bachelor) at the School of Engineering in Zurich, which today belongs to the ZHAW School of Engineering. After working for international companies (Ascom, Zurich Insurance, a.o.) he studied Business Administration from 2000 to 2002, majoring in General Strategic Management (Master) at the state Strathclyde University in Glasgow. After further professional experience in Management and Consulting (Storage Technology, Hewlett Packard, a.o.) and four years of intensive research, Dr. Minonne in 2008 received his doctoral degree in Business Economics from the state University of South Australia in Adelaide.
