Overview

Both governments and firms are actively promoting collaborative research and development in technology using a variety of management techniques and strategies. Different companies experience different problems as they develop links and partnerships according to their organization and technological understanding. In order to analyse what promotes or hinders successful collaboration, Mark Dodgson has conducted extensive research in the field and drawn together a selection of detailed case studies from around the world illustrating a variety of issues from Japanese joint ventures to small business development. He discusses the prevalence of such collaborative projects by exploring the changing processes of innovation, new policy initiatives and strategies for internationalization. He considers the scope and scale of collaboration in order to assess the way successful companies have achieved their growth. This study is important for exploring the area not just from a single perspective of management or technology but presenting a synthesis of business functions and economic analysis. It asks what the implications for skills development are; what effect does public policy have; how far can such ventures go; what decision making processes are involved. All these aspects of collaboration must be considered in order to develop the right management skills and plan strategy for the future. Success in such ventures depends on this.
