Abstract

Competition is today forcing companies to increase their effectiveness exploiting synergy and learning in product innovation.

Basing on preliminary results from the Euro‐Australian co‐operation project CIMA (Euro‐Australian co‐operation centre for Continuous Improvement and innovation MAnagement), this paper proposes a model to explain how companies can gain a substantial competitive advantage by facilitating knowledge generation and transfer during the overall product life‐cycle
