Learning objectives

This module covers in-depth theory on innovation and the benefits of collaboration. If you are familiar with these concepts or want to move on quickly to the practical ’tools’ for chain cooperation, you can skip this module. You can always return to this section later if you still want to know more about the underlying theory.

After completing this module:

  • You will know the most important concepts of innovation, open innovation and chain collaboration
  • You will know how to describe the difference between closed and open innovation
  • You will know how to describe types of open innovation in different contexts
