Open and Closed Innovation: what are the differences?

mjvinnovation

When we think of Open Innovation, it is tempting to associate it with the opposite of Closed Innovation, the traditional one, generated by our own efforts in organizations, without the aid of external entities and agents. In fact, the best thing to do is to think of these two concepts as complementary. Know-how, technology, processes and intellectual property remain under one’s control; without collaboration with other market players or universities, for example.
