The working title for my research while at Stanford is “Sustainable innovation competencies: Understanding the implications of sustainability strategies for a company’s innovation resources and competency sourcing”. The purpose of this research is to develop a conceptual framework for understanding the role of competencies in product developing organisations, when transitioning to adopt sustainability as a driver for innovation. My aim is to strengthen and systematise the strategic planning and execution of sustainability-oriented innovation and product development processes, with a particular focus on competency development and sourcing.
