ABSTRACT

Literature on innovation emphasises the potential for organisations to collaborate and network instead of carrying out innovation individually.  Integrating suppliers, customers and other organisations into the innovation process is perceived as a key to success in innovation management  (Chesbrough, 2003). Furthermore, the management of the initial phase of the innovation process has proven vital to the overall  innovation success (Kim and Wilemon, 2002a,b). Although the merits of network-based innovations are widely acknowledged, the managerial  challenges of the initial integration of external organisations in an innovation network are somewhat neglected in the literature. The aim of this  paper is hence to address the challenges that an organisation faces when integrating a plurality of suppliers, customers and other organisations  into the Fuzzy Front End of the innovation process.

INTRODUCTION

The innovation process is typically divided into a series of succeeding stages where the Fuzzy Front-End is the first stage to encounter. A wide  stream of research applies an intra-firm paradigm and focuses on the manufacturer and how this organisation can control and influence the  environment (Cooper, 2005; Cooper and Kleinschmidt, 1987). In contrast to this approach, the paradigm of open innovation and inter-firm  collaboration has become increasingly influential in the recent decade (Chesbrough, 2003). In this paradigm, the locus of innovation is considered to be located in the interstices between firms (Powell et al., 1996). Companies can engage in such inter-firm collaborations in regard  to many different activities, e.g., innovation, logistics, marketing and sales (Moller and Halinen, 1999; Hagedoorn, 2002; Nooteboom, 2004). The  focus of this paper is on interfirm collaboration where innovation is the main part of the collaborative effort. Innovation in this respect refers  to the research and development (R&D) activity devoted to increasing scientific or technical knowledge and the application of that knowledge to  the creation of new and improved products and processes (Hagedoorn, 2002).
