Getting companies involved in and committed to empirical research projects is a major challenge for many researchers. This paper discusses several cases of lessons learned about how to involve and get the commitment of companies in different types of empirical research projects. This paper will discuss the experiences of two very large consortium projects and one medium-size research project. In addition, the roles of meetings, workshops, and off-site meetings are also discussed.
