Implementing Open Innovation Alliances
Effective chain collaboration is increasingly important for clients and suppliers, both in chains in the industry and in other sectors, such as the service sector. Its importance is increasing due to trends towards specialization, multidisciplinary innovation and ongoing cost control in all aspects of the value chain. Click here for a more detailed description of these trends.
Many organizations already work together in a value chain with clients and suppliers, often with success. However, there is a much-heard ambition to make this collaboration more effective. Organizations that are taking the first steps on the path to chain collaboration are also looking for guidance and help. That is why in recent years a framework has been developed of concepts, of different types of collaboration models and of methods to effectively prepare and implement these collaborations. For this I have worked together with Brainport Industries and Fontys Hogescholen. A recent collaboration with the Dutch Association of Purchasers (NEVI) has resulted in the development of a training course specifically for purchasers who are involved in chain collaboration.
I am convinced that effective chain collaboration is of crucial importance for the success of our organizations and therefore of our economy and society. And also, it can be fun and rewarding at a personal level. That is why I like to offer my services through this website:
