Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

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.
