Engelsberger, Aurelia; Bartram, Timothy; Cavanagh, Jillian; Halvorsen, Beni; Bogers, Marcel: “The role of collaborative human resource management in supporting open innovation”. (2022) Human Resource Management Review.
This conceptual paper provides a more complete and systematic understanding of the human aspects of open innovation (OI). A multi-level model of collaborative human resource management (HRM) has developed to support knowledge sharing and sourcing (KSS) and OI performance of employees through the development of relational leadership and OI mindset. This multi-level model provides seven collaborative HRM practices to establish a road map for management practitioners. To successfully implement OI in organizations and overcome barriers in KSS, practitioners are recommended to apply these seven practices and hence, promote the effective management of people for OI.
