Abstract

Purpose of the paper and literature addressed: Development of a new method for academicpractitioner collaboration, addressing the literature on collaborative research Research method: Model elaboration and test with an in-depth case study Research findings: In consortial benchmarking, practitioners and academic researchers form a consortium and together benchmark best-practices firms. Consortial benchmarking includes practitioners as co-researchers, thus facilitating research relevant for both academics and practitioners. Rigorous research informs the entire process since consortial benchmarking collects evidence from multiple sources and uses different comparison techniques. We develop the method and illustrate it in a business-to-business environment with a case that identifies the nature of innovative suppliers Main contribution: Consortial benchmarking combines rigor and relevance and can thus boost the stagnating field of academic-practitioner collaborative research.
