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. Let’s have a brief look at each of them: Differentiating and integrative innovation concepts. Reinvention through business model innovation.

What is innovation management and why your organization needs it

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. Initiates the innovation process.

Principles of open innovation

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. That’s exactly what open innovation is.

What Is Business Intelligence?

Collective Innovation

When used correctly this data can allow companies to reasonably predict the outcome and validate their decisions while still moving quickly and innovating. Business Intelligence turns your data into actionable information allowing you to make decisions that increase the likelihood of successful new products, sales programs and marketing efforts. If you’re creating a new product historical data can provide a good measure as to what costs and revenue can be expected.

Research Opportunities for Network Forms of OI

Open Innovation

At #RnDParis2019 Thursday, I gave a “master class” on the network forms of open innovation: alliances, communities, crowds, consortia, ecosystems and platforms. It was a standing room only session: it appears that there are a lot of innovation researchers (particularly those new in their careers) who want to learn more about this area and the research opportunities. I extended the idea with a chapter in our 2014 book, New Frontiers in Open Innovation.

Reviewing research on 3D Printing

The talk was part of two 3DP sessions within the 2019 R&D Management Conferece hosted by Thierry Rayna, Frank Piller & I. The full list of references is found as a Google Doc here.

Typology for Innovative Organizations

Open Innovation EU

To my opinion, Mintzberg’s work was a refreshing change to the world of organization design that until then has been largely influenced by Taylor’s Scientific Management Approach and Henry Ford’s efficiency-based adaptation of that. It enhances productivity.

When Disruptive Innovation Gets Disrupted

When Disruptive Innovation Gets Disrupted. Your organization has conceived the perfect idea for a new product innovation. In fact, it will be the most disruptive innovation in this product category in decades. It must be a very poorly managed company you think.

Open Innovation at the User Innovation Conference

Open Innovation

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.

11 Paradoxes of Entrepreneurial Thinking: why entrepreneurship can hardly be taught

Open Innovation EU

The entrepreneur is an innovator and disturbs the economy (De Jong & Marsili, 2010; Schumpeter, 1934). Qualitative analysis shows that entrepreneurs actually use both logic at the same time, in contrast to the way larger organizations deal with innovation (in a more structured way).

Now we start the work co-creating volume 3 of the Complete Guide to business Innovation and you are invited! INTRODUCTION TO VOLUME 3: INNOVATION SYSTEM FROM IDEATION TO GOVERNANCE. Innovators are always saying that they want to make the world a better place, so why isn’t it any better? Every one of us has full access to an infinitely varied and vastly underused resource: Innovation. Innovative thinking alone will not be able to get there, though.

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). References Chesbrough, Henry (2006).

Six Internal Innovation Sources You should know

Spotting efficient sources for different types of innovation is a challenge for innovation leaders. We took a closer look at the most important sources of innovation in large companies: The Leadership. R&D body that is centrally managed and financed by the company.

Themes for the practice of open innovation

Open Innovation

Like my OI collaborators Henry Chesbrough & Wim Vanhaverbeke, I get a lot of emails (and receive many Google News updates) on businesses and consultants touting some claimed breakthrough on open innovation. I first met Cheryl in 2007 — when I was hired to train Kimberly-Clark execs on open innovation — and in 2012 Cheryl invited me to present my research at CoDev2012 when it was in San Diego.

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. Nonetheless, the importance of outbound open innovation has been increasing along with a growing trend toward open innovation in general (Grönlund et al.,

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.
