Critical issues of the organizational think tank approach



In the beginning of chapter 3.3 it was already mentioned that although the organizational think tank approach provides several strengths, which make it likely that this framework can be superior to the existing concepts, there are, nevertheless, critical issues that also have to be discussed and analyzed. Hence, this chapter draws the attention to pitfalls that might be inherent to the organizational think tank approach. In 4.1 the concept is discussed and the most critical remaining issues are outlined. As it was already mentioned in the introductory part, also this concept is no perfect solution to the exploration vs. exploitation trade-off, although it avoids by design several pitfalls that other concepts can not exclude.
