Current competition requires firms to carefully manage their relationships with upstream suppliers and downstream customers. Winner firms are jointly involving suppliers and customers to innovate (the so-called open innovation activities). This investigation proposes a theory on the role of information technology (IT) for innovation in the execution and creation of business value from open innovation activities. The theory is tested on a large sample of firms in Spain. Implications for Information Systems research and practice are described and discussed.
