This paper aims to propose a review of the current open innovation paradigm to include the effects of culture in the internationalized working environment.
Focusing on interpersonal skills, the authors aim to show the current open innovation framework should be extended to include a cross-cultural lens.
In addition, cultural intelligence is a necessary core competency that can “shine a light” on the various ambiguities and uncertainties encountered in the Chinese business terrain.
Cultural intelligence will enhance open innovation alliance effectiveness.
