To draw on multiple knowledge pools is more promising than what a single firm would be able to do on its own. This is an underlying assumption of collaborative forms for innovation like e.g. cluster initiatives. Related to all complex organizational contexts a call for leaders, and in this case relation-based leadership arise. While successful clusters encompass many participating leaders related to the included individual organizations, intentionally developed platforms for innovation appoint process leaders to launch productive activities, and coordinate resources. This leadership challenge encompasses creating a sense of direction, and resolving the continuous struggles that resides within collaborations. It is a relation-based leadership rather than traditional bureaucracy-based leadership. It is executed in the many clashes between cultures and agendas, which makes the conditions for leading fraught with uncertainty and ambiguities. How such leadership can be conceptualized is the main topic of this seminar.
