Lessons Learned from Research Collaboration with Companies
Over the centuries, advances in management have made a substantial contribution to economic and social progress, and today, with organisations facing an array of unprecedented challenges, the need for novel management approaches is more urgent than ever. It is hence surprising why collaboration between practicing mangers and management academics is not more common.
This short session will share the lessons learned from collaboration with large and technology intensive companies. It will highlight the exciting opportunities of such research collaboration and also identify typical pitfalls that often accompany the collaborative work across the corporate and academia divide.
