Abstract

More than ever, companies are challenged to improve their performance and respond quickly and accurately to changes within the market. Due to external dynamics competition is moving towards the level of networks of organisations, and, therefore, the individual firm is an inadequate entity for identifying improvements. Therefore the concept of continuous improvement must be applied and used in interorganisational settings, leading to the concept of collaborative improvement. In order to gain insight and develop knowledge on the process of collaborative improvement from a system integrator perspective, we will use the network model of actors. This paper will discuss some empirical findings on the scope, scale, skill and value, and social networking of collaborative improvement as part of the network model.
