Here is the abstract of the topic that will be presented by Marko Javornik:

Value Co-Creation: Strategic Partnerships around Open Innovation

Is rapid and smart innovation limited to start-up companies? No company alone can succeed in today’s challenging world. However, the traditional hierarchical way of externalizing work (outsourcing) has severe limitations. In an example we show an alternative approach that significantly increases creativity and innovation. It maximizes benefit by empowering suppliers into strategic partners and minimizes risk by defining the framework for the relationship.
