In many respects Industrial design (ID) is outsourced knowledge in the Finnish B-to-B engineering industry. More than occasionally attempts to integrate the external ID work result try-outs in which the company fails to achieve a successful experience of using ID. It is often assumed that the sources of these miscarriages are caused only by incompetence of ID consultants or poor briefing. The latter can be also consequences rather than causes created by unsuitable mix of collaboration practises that are incompatible with internal capability and objectives. The key research question is to model the components of collaboration practises.
