Managing Innovation Processes for a Business-Driven Collaborative Network to Export Total Technical Solutions
2008 (English)In: ISPIM Innovation Symposium, 2008, Singapore: ISPIM , 2008Conference paper (Other academic)
There is a large need of environmental solutions at developing countries, where a network of small firms, e.g. in Sweden, have much opportunity for their business. This paper discusses, from both theoretical and from practical aspects, the high degree of complexity that needs to be managed when small firms export environmental-technology innovation to emerging markets. Especially, it deals with how a network of firms should manage its innovation processes. Based on the review of some 50 literature, the paper explains the methodologies adopted in an on-going project to study these issues. Discussions include differences with development of an integration of products/services within a single firm.
