Abstract

This paper examines critical success factors required to manage successful strategic university-industry collaborations in Malaysia, using a dyadic approach. The scientific literature tentatively suggests that success factors include mutual trust, reward and benefits to individuals, organizations and institutions, open and transparent communication, and commitment and support of management. An additional factor (government support) is added to this study. Adopting a qualitative research strategy, utilizing a dyadic approach, participants from both universities and industry were interviewed. Similarities and differences from the perspective of universities and industries add to the body of knowledge in investigating the critical success factors in successful relationships between profit-oriented organizations and non-profit knowledge-based institutions. University respondents stated that mutual trust is the most critical success factor, followed by commitment and the support of the university’s senior management, open and transparent communication, rewards and benefits to individuals, organizations and institutions, and government support. In contrast, interviews with industry revealed that funding from government is of the utmost importance, followed by open and transparent communication, mutual trust, and commitment and support of the management. Understanding the similarities/differences from both perspectives help individuals and universities to understand and manage future collaborative relationships.
