Abstract [en]

This paper aims to explore the sourcing strategies of companies when contracting external design resources, i.e. how and why companies select and manage their portfolio of external design resources. It also aims to explore how these sourcing strategies may be related to companies’ firm-level product strategy and their brand identity. The paper builds on interviews with managers from six Swedish furniture manufacturers. A tentative model for the relationship between the firms’ brand identities and their sourcing practices is presented and discussed.
