THE INNOVATIVE LEADERS
NETWORK – OUR SOURCE OF
OPEN INNOVATION

No company, organization or individual is capable to cope with the broad variety of fast changing conditions and technological progress on his own.

A creative and holistic approach is required to master todays’ challenges, to foster growth and to build new solutions in our dynamic and complex environment.

BACKGROUND

  • The term Open Innovation was coined by Henry Chesbrough, adjunct professor and faculty director of the Garwood Center for Corporate Innovation at the UC Berkley’s Haas Business School, in his first publication Open Innovation: The New Imperative for Creating and Profiting from Technology in 2003.
  • Chesbrough defines Open Innovation as “the use of purposive inflows and outflows of knowledge to accelerate internal innovation, and expand the market for external use of innovation, respectively”.
  • Since its first mention, the term was adopted and refined by a broad audience in the fields of business and academics.
  • The Open Innovation approach, according to Chesbrough, consists of two complementary facets.

OUTSIDE IN & INSIDE OUT

  • Most commonly associated to Open Innovation, the Outside In process describes the integration of, and the benefit from external knowledge in the internal innovation process.
  • In contrast, within Inside Out processes, internal, underutilized knowledge is shared to develop new ideas and approaches.
