There have been a lot of changes in the sphere of functioning of the modern organization in the last years. Globalization, accompanied by rapid technological changes have created a completely new business environment. Pressing challenges include keeping pace with shorter product life cycles, incorporating multiple technologies into the design of new products, co-creating products and services with customers and partners, and leveraging the growth of scientific and technical knowledge in many sectors. These challenges combined with the limited internal resources, the high risk and the complex and intensified social networking force the companies to apply a completely new management approach.
