Open innovation: Managing knowledge integration across multiple boundaries
2017 (English)In: Managing knowledge integration across boundaries / [ed] Tell, F., Berggren, C., Brusoni, S. & Van de Ven, A., Oxford University Press, 2017Chapter in book (Other academic)
When firms involve external partners more actively in their innovation processes, managing knowledge flows across multiple boundaries becomes an important challenge. In this chapter we investigate specifically how organizational, knowledge, and geographical boundaries are bridged by two knowledge integration (knowledge integration) practices (project management and knowledge matching). We use data from a survey of 415 firms on open innovation practices to illustrate how innovation performance relates to the boundaries that are crossed, and how the bridging of these boundaries is contingent upon the combination of knowledge integration practices.
