Collaboration as a Driving Force for Innovation

The need for organisations to innovate and embrace disruptive technologies, products and services has never been more important than at present as one emerges from the current down turn. The recent financial crisis has been "Game changing" and organisations that simply expect to pick up from where they where a year ago may find new agile competition invading their market space. This is because new organisations are not encumbered by old paradigms and structures and can more readily exist in smaller emerging markets, while more established organisations are tied to less appropriate structures. But why innovate if the customers are once again placing orders for product and services in ever increasing volumes.
