Back teaching in Switzerland again


Recently I was back in Switzerland. This time I was teaching Co-operation Management and Innovation Clusters at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland outside of Zürich.

Unfortunately I cannot share the slides I used this time due to 3rd party IP rights.

What I can share are the six factors that repeat in successful innovation clusters, like say Boulder, Colorado:



Low costs

Supportive public offices

Quality of living

Qualified workforce

How would you rate each factor where you are situated? What could be improved? What needs to be improved? What will you start to improve? Conversely, where will you move your business if these factors aren’t satisfactory where you are today?
