Reviewer’s comment:

‘…because of its novel insights and contribution to our field. It not only addresses a relevant R&D management question, but one that is of high importance in our times of shared value innovation thinking. From a methodological point, the research really is nicely done and the analyses result in the articulation of four distinct strategies that can underpin stakeholder interaction and collaboration during innovation processes. Especially the introduction of the temporal dimension as a pivotal building block of the strategy typology is interesting and distinctively contributes to our understanding of the management of stakeholder collaboration.'
