Open Collaboration for Non-Bureaucratic Innovation

Date April 19-20, 2007

It has typically been true that the larger the company, the more bureaucracy required to manage it. We also know that the presence of bureaucracy may not only impede internal innovation efforts, but also translate into too rigidly managed external partnerships. In this Discovery Event, Professor Georges Haour and Dr. Sygvald Harryson, Associate Professor, Lund University, will explore how leading companies of different size manage to break against bureaucracy to perform new forms of open collaboration that, in turn, lead to higher levels of innovation within shorter timeframes.

By joining our event, you will extract new approaches to address bureaucracy and bring back four new possible models of collaboration to your business reality.


The event takes place at IMD in Lausanne (Switzerland)
