Abstract:This master thesis has focussed on the development of a maturity model of co-development. The proposed maturity model of co-development aids in the assessment of current co-development projects as well as the set up of a new project. It is comprised of three parts. The first part describes the four stages that define the desired direction for an organization towards maturity of co-development. The second part characterizes each of those stages allowing organizations to determine their position in the model. This part also provides important selection criteria to find a suitable collaboration partner and information on essential arrangements that need to be made when setting up the co-development. The last part describes influential success factors and pitfalls during each stage of the maturity model which help to explain how advancements in the model are stimulated. The most influential ones are: - Mutual trust - Commitment (at top management level) - Alignment/Misalignment of expectations - Complementarity of resources - Clear governing structures This research is interesting for practitioners who have realized that co-development is the next step for their organization to create new distinctive value for their customers via competences that lay beyond their borders.
