The January 2013 paper on 'Thriving in Open Innovation Ecosystems: Towards a Collaborative Market Orientation' by Chander Velu, Michael Barrett, Rajiv Kohli, Torsten Oliver Salge

By drawing upon literature to identify its constitutive routines the authors provide actionable steps for organizations to build CMO capabilities
