The paper is based on a study that is part of Ivanovic’s PhD dissertation. Ivanovic is a PhD candidate at FEB’s department of Human Resource Management and Organizational Behavior

Virtual hackathons have become a popular accelerated innovation tool to help teams develop innovative solutions for complex challenges through intensive collaboration under high time pressure. In their paper, Ivanovic, De Vries and Van der Vegt integrate insights from the attention-based view of the firm with the literature on tie strength and temporal dimensions of communication, and propose strategies that might help teams effectively manage their external communication during virtual hackathons. Their findings contribute to the innovation and team literature by pointing to the importance of the appropriate timing and configuration of team external activities, and point to two strategies that teams and managers might use to leverage the innovative performance potential of virtual hackathons.
