Master class: collaboration and partnerships with outside teams


What does it look like to build a strong team comprised of internal and external players? How can internal alignment and acceptance make external collaboration a reality?

Listen to the replay of the Innovation Leader Master Innovation + Technical Research Class, Collaboration and Partnerships with Outside Teams with Bob Klein that aired Thursday, November 15th.

Bob Klein, CEO & founder of Digital Scientists, explains how best to partner with outside teams and why they can become a vital part of your product development team. This Master Class explores partnerships with internal teams beyond the innovation department, working with other companies that specialize in specific services (e.g. hardware development or electrical engineering firms), or partnering with other companies on R&D efforts. Bob also explains how to facilitate a successful transfer and ensure longer relationships, as well as leveraging outside partners to accelerate speed to market while building your own team.

Why collaborate & partner with outside teams?

For organizations, surviving in the face of change requires their leaders to do two critical but contradictory things:

  • Exploit existing assets and capabilities through continual incremental innovation and change 
  • Explore new markets and technologies where their existing assets and capabilities can give them competitive advantage over new entrants
