The Innovation Management Group at the Department of Business Administration has invited a dedicated researcher with a great interest in innovation management. This time it is Martin W. Wallin, professor at the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. He will give a talk about information technology and open innovation and focus on the hidden value of IT investments for process innovation performance.

“Information technology (IT) increasingly plays a critical role in firms’ product and process innovation,” says Martin W. Wallin and adds:

“As also process innovation becomes increasingly open and collaborative and firms draw on inputs from multiple external sources, the role of IT may become even more pronounced. Most studies on open innovation focus on product innovation and thus, we know little about to what extend openness in innovation influences process innovation.”

Innovation Management Group

The Innovation Management Group arranges a range of seminars every year. The aim is to provide inspiration and insight from the research frontier of innovation management, strategy, entrepreneurship and organizational change.

“We are pleased to welcome Martin W. Wallin to the Department of Business Administration. Martin’s work serves as a great inspiration and input to our own research projects in the field of innovation management and entrepreneurship,” explains Professor Lars Frederiksen.
