Abstract

The purpose of this Working Paper is to provide a single point of reference for a set of case studies which were researched and written during 2021-23 to inform conference and journal papers on the new concept of Entrepreneurial Collective Intelligence (ECI). The cases themselves were too long in total to be included in full in these publications. Also, the cases may be of value separately for research, demonstration and educational purposes.

Based on insights from the case studies, a conceptualisation identifies four categories of collaborative structures and collective work processes which characterise ECI in the organisations studied, as well as more generally. These include: Collaborative processes; distributed working; intelligence availability, and organisation of infrastructures.
