ORGANIZING FOR THE PURCHASING OF INNOVATION: Insights from two auto manufacturers
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 2020

Our observations show two different approaches to organizing purchasing of innovation as a response to the conflicting needs of purchasing innovation compared to matured technologies in these industries: 1) higher levels of cross-functional sourcing with a larger role for the engineering function, and 2) a sourcing group for innovation in parallel to the existing ones. Both organizations were developed in response to similar challenges that the existing established processes were not apt to respond to.
