The Benefits of Open Innovation

HunchBuzz

Open innovation is the life blood of many corporations. One of the greatest benefits of open innovation is the ability to find and groom innovators who already have products and technologies. Experts find that it is twice as valuable to bring on a ready-made product than to develop one from scratch. This is because even those in a corporation hired to work on technological and product innovations rarely have as much time to do the work they were hired to do.

Key Issues in Innovation Management – Revisited – Part 1

Tim Kastelle

At the beginning of 2013, Tim Kastelle and I identified four key issues in innovation management for the time to come. From our point of view, all of the issues pinned down at that time have gained significant importance, are being intensively debated and can still be considered cutting-edge for companies to stay ahead in managing innovation. Let’s have a brief look at each of them: Differentiating and integrative innovation concepts.

Moving towards a new innovation service model

Paul Hobcraft

The realization that innovation goes way beyond product innovation is a massive hurdle for many of our existing organizations to overcome, certainly in what they are offering today as solutions. This is part two of an extended series on my thoughts on “ moving towards a new way of managing innovation ” that explores the potential for changing the management of innovation. I would suggest on the very way we manage innovation.

Business Model Innovation: Creating Pathways to Relevance

The Future Shapers

The innovation conversation is happening every day , no matter your industry, function or location. Unfortunately, the discussion can quickly turn into a haze of white noise and fuzziness as emphasis on theoretical definitions, frameworks, types of innovations and other aspects of enablement leave people puzzled and dazed, as opposed to motivated and ready to make a difference. But, should one start with incremental innovation or is radical innovation the way to go?

Building upon the four essential pillars for innovation

Paul Hobcraft

It is always welcome to read a thoughtful article that reminds me, no, it actually inspires me, by reinforcing my own belief that innovation is progressing, even if this is sometimes frustratingly slow. The innovation architecture is progressively being recognized and put into place, it’s forming the building blocks of the innovation platform we need to build upon, ones for more radical innovation outcomes. Establishing a Comprehensive Innovation Strategy.

Europe Needs to Innovate Itself out of Economic Slump

Business Innovation Design

of annual growth rate of GDP in 2013, the economic and financial crisis has eradicated years of economic and social progress. One of them is through innovation. Traditionally, Europe has been establishing itself as leaders in product innovation through technology-led development that has largely contributed to the economic growth and competitiveness. This is ironic as organizations are cash-rich but are failing to invest in innovations that nurture growth.

Open Innovation at the User Innovation Conference

On Tuesday, Frank Piller of RWTH Aachen presented an overview of open innovation. He presented to attendees at the 2014 Open and User Innovation Conference — the 12th annual meeting of the user innovation workshop — which met at Harvard Business School. A track chair here at OUI, Frank is one of two members of the user innovation “tribe” (the other being Karim Lakhani) who's worked most actively in open innovation.

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

Open Innovation

For the past month or so, I have been getting reminders of a new publication on open innovation in R&D Management. In 2013, the Google Scholar suggestion was for an exceptionally good OI article.

How Chief Innovation Officer (CINO) may replace the traditional Chief Information Officer (CIO)

The 2018 Gartner CIO Agenda Survey demonstrates that technological innovation and digitalization are changing the way CIOs work. Of the CIOs surveyed in India, 51 percent reported that they were heading innovation, whereas 49 percent reported that they were leading digital transformation. So, the CIO’s role is expected to expand to take on additional areas of business like innovation management and talent development. The CIO is the Chief Innovation Officer.

Standardization as an open innovation activity

Open Innovation

An important but understudied form of open innovation is the network form (network as defined by Powell 1990). The theme for EURAS 2016 is ‘Co-opetition and Open Innovation’, and so I was invited to deliver the keynote address. The slides for my talk (entitled “How standards research can inform open innovation”) are online at SlideShare. For the 2014 book, I sought to bring together the prior research on the various network forms and tie them to open innovation.

Key Innovation Issues for 2016 and Beyond

Integrative Innovation

Hence, I gave it some thought, starting by revisting an earlier reflection: Beginning of 2013, Tim Kastelle and I identified four key issues in innovation management for the time to come. From my point of view, all of the issues pinned down at that time have gained significant importance, are being intensively debated and can still be considered cutting-edge for companies to stay ahead in managing innovation.

What is innovation management and why your organization needs it

hackerearth

Understanding Innovation Management. Is it a lack of innovation or an inability to cope with change? Either way, businesses need to identify where they are going wrong because innovation as a business strategy is here to stay. For survival, innovation is almost obligatory (Drucker, 1999). An innovation process “connects upstream idea valuation to downstream production and release to market.” Like any business function, innovation can be managed.

Principles of open innovation

hackerearth

There are all examples of open innovation (OI) at its best. Popularized by Henry Chesbrough,“Open Innovation” term refers to the broad concepts of leveraging external sources of technology and innovation to drive internal growth. As opposed to traditional closed models where companies use primarily internal resources to drive innovation, in the newer open models, knowledge crosses an organization’s boundary for commercialization in new or existing markets.
