Open Innovation: A Tried and True Approach

Rocketspace

In the summer of 2014 , much of the tech press was amused, and even a little aghast —McDonald's had opened a digital incubator in San Francisco. McDonald's making this kind of modern move was hardly surprising, though, as they'd seen huge success in 2011 with a German campaign called "Mein Burger," a six month competition allowing customers to invent and crowdsource new burgers online. How have we reached the point where even hamburger restaurants are embracing Open Innovation?

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).

33 Routes to Open Innovation

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.

Standardization as an open innovation activity

R&D Management: Let's Reward Fraud, Not Punish It

For the past month or so, I have been getting reminders of a new publication on open innovation in R&D Management. This month, it was perhaps the last hurrah of the discredited , fired ex-academic whose who will be remembered in innovation studies as the greatest fraud of the early 21st century.

The Inovo Group

In 2017, Innovation Leader published the results of a survey on Innovation Teams and Business Units: Allies or Adversaries [ 2 ].

I wrote it with Frank Piller, one of Europe’s best known open innovation scholars.

Warm and Fuzzy at the Front End of Innovation

Paul Hobcraft

Perhaps I have fallen into the very trap I have campaigned about in the past, in recognizing and resolving the disappointing results we achieve from all the work we put into the front end of innovation.

The subject was the changes occurring at the front end of innovation.
