Managing corporate innovation communities: a role theory perspective

  • Motivated by the relevance of innovation communities and the significance of informal roles in this context, this book presents three interrelated studies that contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of innovation communities from a role theory perspective. The studies address the following research questions: (1) What are the phases and related key activities of community-based innovation processes?, (2) What are the central informal roles in corporate innovation communities and how do they interact throughout the innovation process?, and (3) What are the antecedents of role stress (i.e., role conflict and role ambiguity) of members in corporate innovation communities?
