Open Innovation Collaboration and Leadership
The phys.org website noted that collaborating with others to find ideas and skills is becoming more and more popular among businesses and organizations, but in practice it’s difficult to get collaboration to fully succeed. In her thesis, Anna Yström has started out from a unique perspective by focusing on the collaboration between organizations itself instead of looking at the interests of an individual organization. “Many studies have been conducted from a firm-centric perspective, but as far as I know there is no previous research where open innovation collaboration has been studied for so long. Looking at the collaboration itself opens up paths for new understanding, and it’s becoming clear that it requires another leadership than what we often think of in traditional organizations,” Anna says.
