This research is grounded in the theory on productive resources and dynamic capabilities. Following Sanchez (2004), for example, firm-addressable resources outside a firm can and should be used to complement internal resources and capabilities. Chesbrough et al. (2006) were one of the first who systematically emphasized that firms can and should use external ideals and internal ideas, and internal and external paths to market, as they look to advance their technology. A concept, which they named open innovation and which today is widely accepted in theory and practice.
