Presentation abstract


In this era of exponential change, innovation and speed are key to the success of your organization. Mastering innovation in the networked world will be about joining forces and collaboration to reach “networked innovation”. Finding the right partners and setting up the appropriate partnerships can be essential to achieve the best results whereby all partners win. But how do you do this, how do you make it work?

The book Win-winnovation bundles the authors’ first-hand experience with innovative collaborations: which approaches are best suited to achieve win-win scenario’s. It gives an overview of different approaches and skills to establish successful partnerships for innovation. The presentation will give an overview of the key learnings described in the brand-new book that will be launched during this session.
