The hypothesis presented in this chapter is that the value adding performance of the BC industry can be much increased by:

If, like in the Netherlands, the government wants to have a more open, value adding and innovative BC sector, participation in initiatives like the one experimented here is necessary. Without instruments to improve communication and to raise the value adding capacity of BC, all the other efforts don't work out in practice. Without the means to implement new ways of working, those new ways won't come about.
