All my career I've been focusing on building an integrated theoretical framework representing collaborative & contextualized innovative behavior. Focusing on startups, corporates and governmental organizations. Thus, not concentrating on the innovative outcome, but on what actors do in the trenches of innovation. Not an easy, but very rewarding journey.
