Too often, entrepreneurs only focus on value when raising funds, planning an initial public offering or considering a trade sale. However, in the course of 'business as usual', there can be a tendency to ignore the rigours of value analysis.
An understanding of what drives value in a business is a powerful tool for an entrepreneur. It can act as a framework for developing the business and testing strategic options. It also provides a platform to explore underlying factors that drive and sustain competitive advantage, and to develop effective protection, investment and acquisition, and licensing strategies for the business, including intellectual property (IP) protection.

In this conceptual paper, we use a paradoxical lens to explore the strategic contradictions of leaders who are required to make balanced paradoxical choices, for example, when decision-making requires the identification of novel and creative solutions to difficult problems. We develop our perspective based on two recent large scale studies that delve into how curiosity is viewed and applied in contemporary firms. The results from these studies suggest a limited level of leader support for curious and enquiring minds; instead, they posit a position of top down decision-making as a means of managing risk. We also review the impact of cognitive bias when leaders consider their choice of decision-making approaches, either to provide exploratory support for curious enquiring minds or to maintain an exploitation position conducive to risk mitigation. We then move on to discuss the importance and relevance of contextual questioning in support of 'playfulness,' as a means of enhancing curiosity and encouraging exploration. With curiosity and exploration being essential to the identification of novel solutions, we suggest that contextual questions are integral to paradoxical frames associated with curiosity and risk. Our aim is to contribute to paradox theory by expanding theoretical insights supportive of an integrative approach to contextual questioning enhanced by serious play. In this way, enriching outcomes that are associated with curiosity; most notably when there are paradoxical tensions between curiosity and risk. Finally, we provide three questions as stimuli for further empirical research.

Sb doped SnO2 has been formulated and inkjet printed onto borosilicate glass substrates. The resultant films have been post processed using traditional thermal annealing up to 440°C and laser processing with a KrF excimer laser (λ = 248nm). Sheet resistance values of 700Ω/□ have been achieved with thermal annealing, whilst transparency remains >85% in the visible region. As a result of laser processing significant decreases in sheet resistance of the inkjet printed layers have been demonstrated indicating the viability of inkjet printing onto flexible substrates. The optical transmittance of the laser processed films has been shown to remain >85%. Initial measurements indicate that thermal and laser post processes reduce surface roughness. © 2005 SID.
