Open Innovation: A 2014 Research Agenda

Open Innovation

One of the main goals of the Chesbrough/Vanhaverbeke/West 2006 book was to shape the research agenda of the open innovation. Our final chapter was immodestly entitled “Open innovation: a research agenda” (West, Vanhaverbeke and Chesbrough, 2006). Since I'm trying to write a short encyclopedia article on open innovation — and want to make it different from my 2011 article — it seemed a good time to review what’s been written recently.

Open Innovation EU

It has been a while since Henry Chesbrough coined the term Open Innovation and formulated it’s definition: “combining internal and external ideas as well as internal and external paths to market to advance the development of new technologies.” In the course of time, the terminology surrounding Open Innovation has evolved alongside developments in management literature and practises.

WOIC: Final Thoughts

Open Innovation

Now that I've had a chance to get home (and pack up and leave again), let me offer a few thoughts on the 2nd World Open Innovation Conference -- not as program chair, but as the owner of OIBlog.net who blogs about open innovation related conferences. Industry Sessions The opening industry session was the best of all that I heard at WOIC. Yes, they focused on healthcare, which has been my main teaching and service focus since changing employers in 2011.

Typology for Innovative Organizations

Open Innovation EU

Ford embraced the idea that not tasks should be optimized, but processes should be optimized and automatized: organization design is the effective and efficient design of processes. They require openness, transparency, adaptability, co-creation, self-management and responsiveness. A Typology for Innovative Organizations.

Learning User Innovation by teaching it

Open Innovation

This month I spend part of my innovation strategy class at UCI on user innovation. Thoughts in 2014 With more than 15 published papers (articles or chapters) about open innovation, I’m guessing many know me mostly for my OI work. Of these articles, two articles in 2009 and 2012 compare open and user innovation, the latter with Marcel Bogers (who did his diss at EPFL on UI). I wrote it with Frank Piller, one of Europe’s best known open innovation scholars.

By using the ORL uncertainty framework, organizations can better manage innovation uncertainty. In 2011, after more than 20 years of research, Harry Klee, a professor in the Horticulture Sciences Department at the University of Florida, developed the “perfect” tomato.

HunchBuzz

The basic thinking behind the process of gamification is to encourage participation of people in certain events.

Qmarkets

We frequently talk about how innovation is a crucial necessity for your enterprise company, and how the right innovation can be the difference between setting the market standards and being shunted aside as a new market leader makes the rules.
