Panel discussion - Cooperate or Collaborate: That is the question… Isn’t it?

It is now conventional wisdom that virtually no company should innovate on its own. The good news is that potential partners and ways to collaborate with them have both expanded enormously in number. The bad news is that greater choice has made the perennial management challenge of selecting the best options much more difficult.

  • Should you open up and share your intellectual property with the community?
  • Nurturing collaborative relationships with a few carefully selected partners or harnessing the “wisdom of crowds”?
  • How can start-ups work together to co-create solutions?
  • After the honeymoon: how to make the marriage last?
