I recently stumbled across the openinnovators blog and was impressed with the information and resources on there. They were looking for guest bloggers to submit articles so I took the opportunity to summarise what we have been learning about open innovation through our experience in the past couple of years. The article, called 'the art and science of open innovation', is available to read here.
I believe that, whilst awareness in open innovation is increasing, the focus is still primarly around hard factors such as intellectual property
and investment models. Whilst we have learned a lot about these hard factors, and have a definite point of view about them, this article focusses mainly on the cultural factors/barriers to open innovation which I believe often get overlooked.
Anyway, as always, I'd be interested in any comments or feedback.
