This research study will build on our previous collaboration with Volvo Cars on the broad theme Developing Capabilities for Innovation. The focus for this study will still be to understand the prerequisites underpinning Volvo Cars’ efforts and thereby investigating how to build capabilities for innovation (in large firms). In this phase of the project we will work closely with the strategic unit “Long term Strategy and Innovation” at Volvo Cars.
We are currently in the process of defining exact scope for the collaboration, but it will include participating in developing and launching an innovation forum and in various activities such as an innovation jam. The objective is to explore and understand the process of building new innovation capabilities and thereby gain an increased understanding of the process of developing such capabilities.
