Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds his/her own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

There has always been a good deal of talk among business school professors and industry leaders alike regarding the right time to collaborate. It is, of course, an interesting topic and one that probably has no right answer given the myriad of variables and inability of humans to actually look into the future. When this discussion takes place, it centers around what factors should be considered – Is the firm contemplating collaboration on an upswing or a downswing? Does it have a diversified offer or is it leveraged against only one product? Is it global or looking to expand into new markets? All factors, all relevant. But somehow, they fail to get the root of the matter.

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
