Today’s networked and boundaryless organizations are progressively embracing ‘open innovation’ through collaboration and knowledge exchange with stakeholders across their value network to leverage external capabilities in the innovation process. Understanding the complex and relational dynamics at play in this process is fundamental to developing well-aligned networks of open innovation. This paper directs focus to the question of how organizations can strategically align an adaptive culture that fosters open innovation. A conceptual framework is presented to demonstrate how cultural dynamics can be aligned with co-evolutionary learning dynamics so as to enable open innovation outcomes in networked organizations. This framework can form the basis for future empirical research examining the process at stake in the alignment between organizational culture and open innovation.
