About this book

This book places knowledge, learning and innovation at the heart of cross-sector collaborations. Collaboration for innovation is a topic that has attracted widespread interest from academics, business strategists and government officials. To date the collaborations have focused on the performance management process and more specifically on how to encourage collaboration. However, businesses across the world are realizing that for cross-sector collaboration to be successful, it is necessary for firms to share knowledge and innovation through a process of learning. The book contributes to this by providing fresh insights into ways to stimulate cross-sector collaboration. It presents diverse methods and approaches to unify the dimensions of knowledge, learning and innovation and discusses how collaboration can be created, sustained, and expanded.

Reviews

 

“Knowledge, Learning and Innovation” edited by Vanessa Ratten, Vitor Braga and Carla Susana Marques offers interesting and novel perspectives on a crucial topic for the management and growth of small family-owned firms: cross-sector collaborations. Prior literature acknowledges the relevance of collaborations between organizations from different sectors in order to promote the production of knowledge and innovation. The present book integrates such body of knowledge by providing several interesting real-world cases that illustrate in detail how small and medium firms worldwide can learn and innovate effectively via such inter-organizational relationships. “Knowledge, Learning and Innovation” is composed by 12 chapters written from authors from all around the world (e.g., Portugal, Italy, Australia, Malaysia, Turkey and many more). These chapters deal with a variety of topics such as business quality, value co-creation, customer experience management, gender & social entrepreneurship, social ties by reporting detailed business cases, rich of practical insights for book readers.” (Dr Francesco Schiavone, University of Naples Parthenope, Italy)    

“The book titled “Knowledge, learning and Innovation: Research Insights on Cross-Sector Collaboration” is composed of 12 chapters with 40 contributors and edited by three editors. The first chapter is regarded as the main reflection of the rest of other chapters, in which the issue of ‘knowledge, learning and innovation’ is comprehensively elaborated and justified in term of its conceptual perspectives and applications. In other words, the selection of works to be included in this book was obviously concurrent and appropriate.” (Muhamadul Bakir, Kulliyyah of Islamic Revealed Knowledge and Human Sciences, International Islamic University Malaysia)  

“Knowledge, innovation and learning provides an innovative overview of cross-sector collaborations.  The authors of the chapters are international with research from Malaysia, Turkey, France, Portugal, Indonesia and Australia. The book provides interesting research about different ways businesses are involved in collaboration from a number of different perspectives. I highly recommend the book.” (Dr Jane Menzies, Deakin University, Australia)
