Description

Open Innovation describes an emergent model of innovation in which firms draw on research and development that may lie outside their own boundaries. In some cases, such as open source software, this research and development can take place in a non-proprietary manner. Henry Chesbrough and his collaborators investigate this phenomenon, linking the practice of innovation to the established body of innovation research, showing what's new and what's familiar in the process. Offering theoretical explanations for the use (and limits) of open innovation, the book examines the applicability of the concept, implications for the boundaries of firms, the potential of open innovation to prove successful, and implications for intellectual property policies and practices. The book will be key reading for academics, researchers, and graduate students of innovation and technology management.show more

Review quote

'... this is a useful source of reference for many of those in multiple organisations seeking to take advantage of open innovation opportunities.' * Innovation Update * This book not only provides an excellent state of the art on open innovation, it also makes a commendable effort in expanding its application domain... I therefore would like to recommend this book to all academics, practitioners and policy makers that are engaged in innovation management in general and open innovation in particular. * Creativity and Innovation Management * Review from previous edition From large organisations seeking to develop open innovation as a capability through to universities and IP organisations seeking to act as catalysts for open innovation and then onto networks to enable the connections, this is a thorough review of most of the drivers on the topic. Linking current practice to innovation research, this shows what is new, what is not and provides theoretical frameworks for the use and limitations of open innovation. Although clearly written for the academic community, this is a useful source of reference for many of those in multiple organisations seeking to take advantage of open innovation opportunities. * Innovation Update *show more
