Collaborating for Innovation: Supporting Networks in Canadian Industry

ConferenceBoardOfCanadaAs we’ve seen in the past century, the pace of social, economic, and technological change is astounding. Keeping up with just some of these changes is difficult in itself, and many companies are having trouble taking advantage of all of this new knowledge on their own. As such, many companies choose to collaborate either through one-on-one interactions with other organizations, or by participating in innovation-supporting networks (ISNs). The success of these collaborations depends on each party having clear objectives and agreeing to adopt manageable and credible goals.

So could a collaboration or participating in an ISN build innovation capacity in your organization? What are the advantages and potential risks? And how can you measure whether these collaborations have actually worked?
