616Winning the Future through Open Innovation a progress report on our Open Government InitiativeUnited States National Science and Technology Council's open innovation efforts in cases such as NASA and DARPA. "In Strategy for American Innovation, President Obama frames the government's role as (1) investing in the building blocks for innovation (infrastructure, research and development [R&D], and an educated workforce); (2) promoting market-based innovation; and (3) catalyzing breakthroughs for national priorities (e.g., health care, energy, manufacturing, and education).United States National Science and Technology Council's open innovation efforts have surfaced ten leading practices that have the potential to scale within and across Federal agencies through interagency policy and implementation groups under the leadership of, or with support from, the NSTC Committee on Technology. This paper examines the practices regarding open innovation in large governmental agencies.", what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsmanufacturingbachelor, master, phdsuccessfulOpen innovation in USA, DARPA, DARPA’s Crowd-Derived Combat Support Vehicle Challenge, NASA, NASA’s Tournament Lab, USPTO, NLM, NIST, HHSA, DOE, HHS, PPO,
634When, why and how is OI applicable to postal companies: A case study on Swiss Post’s innovation managementAbout innovation management at Swiss Post Since the past decades, the postal sector has been undergoing profound reform. Against that background, postal companies search for new innovation models so as to increase their performance and to ensure their profitability and growth. A possibility to adapt the innovation management of postal operators to the changed environmental conditions is the so-called 'open innovation model’. Open Innovation makes companies rethink their innovation management: ideas are no longer exploited just from inside the company but also from outside of the firm. In open innovation research, the input side- including the decision to implement open innovation as well as the adoption of the model - has generally been neglected. Based on the case study on Swiss Post’s innovation management, we aim to answer the questions pertaining to when, why, and how are open innovation models applicable to postal operators and to define the determining factors of its application. The goal of this paper is (1) to investigate the relevance of open innovation for the postal sector as a low-technology industry and (2) to analyze how companies can implement open innovation according to their specific influencing factors., what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicesbachelor, master, phdsuccessfulOpen Innovation, postal industry, adoption, influencing factors
614Transaction cost economics and Open Innovation: Reinventing the wheel of boundaryThe study questions the belief that hierarchical control defeats transaction costs in Volvo case. Transaction Cost Economics (TCE) has with no doubt had a strong impact on theories of economic exchange, with a suggestion that the boundaries of firms are consequences of transaction costs. But although such costs are evident also in contemporary post-bureaucratic contexts, in terms of for instance collaboration costs and the risk for opportunistic behaviour, firms tend to open their boundaries for knowledge exchange. In this paper, we highlight the problematic use of TCE in the context of open innovation, arguing for its limited descriptive power and potentially harmful normative practice. A case study of the Volvo Group a Swedish builder for commercial vehicles moving in the direction of opening up their innovation processes will help illustrating these claims. The case questions the belief that hierarchical control defeats transaction costs. Also, it suggests that an overemphasis on calculative reduction of transaction costs together with a focus on governance and rationality leave little space for an innovative and creative climate, thus diverting the attention away from potential transaction benefits. The self-fulfilling prophecy character of subscribing to the assumptions of TCE may therefore not merely hamper but actually undermine innovation., what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsmanufacturingbachelor, master, phdsuccessfulTransaction cost economics, Open Innovation, transaction cost, self-fulfilling prophecy character, Volvo Group, harmful normative practice, undermine innovation, creative climate, calculative reduction, opportunistic behaviour, commercial vehicle
599The role of technology in the shift towards Open Innovation: The case of Procter & GambleThis paper analyzes Procter and Gamble’s ‘Connect and Develop’ strategy as a case study. "As with all new ideas, the concept of Open Innovation requires extensive empirical investigation, testing and development. This paper analyzes Procter and Gamble’s ‘Connect and Develop’ strategy as a case study of the major organizational and technological changes associated with open innovation. It argues that although some of the organizational changes accompanying open innovation are beginning to be described in the literature, more analysis is warranted into the ways technological changes have facilitated open innovation strategies,particularly related to new product development. Information and communications technologies enable the exchange of distributed sources of information in the open innovation process. The case study shows that furthermore a suite of new technologies for data mining, simulation, prototyping and visual representation, what we call ‘innovation technology’, help to support open innovation in Procter and Gamble. The paper concludes with a suggested research agenda for furthering understanding of the role played by and consequences of this technology", what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsmanufacturingbachelor, master, phd, executivesuccessfulP&G, organizational changes, technological changes, Open Innovation, licensing, internal seeding, acquisitions

635Supplier-customer collaboration from an open innovation perspective - A comparative case study of four small and medium-sized supplier firms in high-tech defense industryAbout implementation of open innovation strategies in Norwegian defense industry This thesis presents a comparative case study of collaboration through an open innovation approach in the Norwegian defense industry. By studying four small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that deliver products to a larger customer, I explore whether there could be positive knowledge outcomes from being part of a company’s open innovation strategy. This approach turns the focus towards the SMEs as suppliers, asking whether it is possible to add a new dimension to the open innovation model, one with the focus on the suppliers. The context here is the development of Joint Strike Missile (JSM), a missile produced by Norway’s Kongsberg Defense Systems (KDS), a major defense supplier and one of the divisions of KONGSBERG (Kongsberg Gruppen). The SMEs in question are four of many suppliers that develop products for the JSM project, as a part of the KDS’ innovation strategy., what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsmanufacturingbachelor, master, phdsuccessfulOpen innovation, SME, Norway, outsourcing, collaboration

624Open Source and business model innovation: The Funambol caseAbout Funambol case which provides an optimized business model to leverage the open source advantage in an emerging market. A comprehensive theoretical framework about open source business models is still missing, notwithstanding a growing number of contributions. This lack of literature is mainly due to the relative newness of the phenomena. This paper aims at giving a contribution to the ongoing discussion about open source business implications. The research hypothesis is that open source represents a disruptive innovation for the software industry. The purpose is to understand, through case study research, how open source companies can develop successful business models. Funambol provides an interesting example of an optimized business model, able to leverage the open source advantage in an emerging market. The paper is structured in three main parts: the first one aims at outlining the research hypothesis and methodology. The second part identifies the unique competitive factors distinguishing open source business and the main business implications.

Open innovation also helps organizations take advantage of processes and cost structures that they may not have known before reaching out to the partner. This collaboration also gives the organizations the ability to leverage different business models such as different go to market or manufacturing opportunuties from partners., USdescriptivecoupledwhy_organisation, what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsmanufacturingbachelor, mastersuccessfulInternal and external collaboration, network, idea generation, knowledge management, intellectual property, Open Innovation
600Open Innovation, generativity and the supplier as peer: The case of iPhone and AndroidThis study compares iphone and Android in terms of generativity and external value creation. The diffusion of various forms of digital technologies has acted as a disrupting force in several industries, promoting open and distributed innovation processes. In this paper we argue that the supplier in open innovation networks tends to get a more active role as a creative peer producer, rather than merely a contractual deliverer. A comparative case study of the mobile phone platforms iPhone and Android is used to analyze this shift in innovative value creation. The notion of generative capacity is introduced to the research on open innovation, suggesting that it is generativity rather than openness that drives the platforms’ aggregated wealth. The two cases from the mobile phone industry illustrate that innovation initiatives can successfully approach generativity in different ways and that both openness and control are important to facilitate supplier contributions, what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicesbachelor, master, phdsuccessfulOpen Innovation, iphone, Android, Apple, Google, generativity, external value creation

632OI in a cosmetic firm: Developing capabilities in managing communitiesAbout understanding how a firm arranges itself organisationally to develop special capabilities in managing communities. Case company is Natura. Open Innovation is a new concept regarding interorganizational collaboration. This new approach preconizes the achievement of competitive advantages by searching external sources of innovation as well as external applications for internal technologies. However, we argue that implementing a strategy based on open innovation requires the development of specific capabilities in managing communities. Thus, this article aims at understanding how a firm arranges itself organisationally in order to develop these capabilities. As we are exploring new insights about open innovation, we opted for a case study as methodological approach. By describing and analysing the practical experience of Natura – a Brazilian cosmetic company - in implementing open innovation, we could identify why and when these managerial capabilities are required and how they are developed and inserted in the company’s routines, by mobilization of the firm’s dynamic capabilities. We could observe that the institutional variety between communities interferes in access to knowledge, on contracts and projects architectures, on priorities, targets and guidelines, among other aspects; and that the development of capabilities in managing this diversity relies on seeing these communities as new innovation resources which require new managerial arrangements., what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsmanufacturingbachelor, master, phdsuccessfulCosmetic company, cosmetic firm, cosmetics, Crowdsource, Crowdsourcing, Innovation, Knowledge, Open Innovation

606Managing Open Innovation in SMEs: A good practice example of a German software firmAbout organizational capabilities for managing open innovation in SMEs based on a case study analysis of the company CAS Software AG Current research indicates that firms are opening up their innovation processes and adapt their business models to benefit not only from internal but also from external ideas and knowledge. So far, most of the research on open innovation has been focused on open innovation practices in large firms and has not considered open innovation in SMEs adequately. For this reason, our paper investigates organizational capabilities for managing open innovation in SMEs. Based on a case study analysis of the company CAS Software AG the researchers argue that SMEs have to build up new managerial capabilities within six dimensions of an integrated managerial system for open innovation. In addition the paper reveals the prosperous transformation process of the CAS Software AG towards an open innovator highlighting its characteristic of a guided evolution by means of a maturity model., what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicesbachelor, master, phdsuccessfulManagement systems for innovation, Open Innovation, SME, organizational capabilities, organizational change

602Implementing Open Innovation: The case of Natura, IBM and SiemensAbout open innovation activities in Natura, IBM and Siemens. Main topics are alignment of OI with corporate strategy, organizational requirements, implementation, barriers and results. This paper analyses three case firms whose innovation management processes have been consolidated. The companies Natura, IBM (Brazilian Subsidiary) and Siemens (ChemTech/Brazil) were studied with the purpose of analysing the implementation of OI, particularly in terms of: (a) its alignment with existing corporate strategy; (b) its requirements such as culture, skill and motivation; (c) the strategy and the implementation process; (d) the results achieved (e) the present barriers and enablers. The research is qualitative in nature and employs a descriptive approach. The main results of this study, obtained using a method called ‘Collective Subject Speech’ , show that the implementation of OI, both structured and non-structured, is mainly challenged by cultural issues. It has been observed that the implementation of OI process is at its embryonic stage in all case firms and that this occurs along with investments in closed innovation, meaning that OI results cannot be explored at this stage of the implementation, as there is a long way to consolidate these practices in the case firms studied., what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsmanufacturingbachelor, master, phdsuccessfulInnovation processes, Open Innovation, implementation of Open Innovation, innovation management

609Crowdsourcing and Open Innovation: A study of Amazon Mechanical Turk and Apple iOSCrowdsourcing and the ways in which firms have opened up their boundaries to external labour via a digital platform in Amazon and Apple cases Open Innovation has attracted widespread attention. A number of critical voices have recently surfaced who have called for a more rounded assessment that moves beyond the firm and the focus on benefits. In response, this paper provides a counterpoint to the positivity with a focus on labour issues and external actors. Attention is directed towards crowdsourcing and the ways in which firms have opened up their boundaries to external labour via a digital platform. Two distinct case studies - Amazon Mechanical Turk and Apple iOS - will be used to illuminate the nature of the relationship between the firm/platform owner and the external labour that participates in crowdsourcing.

For generations, Procter & Gamble generated most of its phenomenal growth by innovating from within--building global research facilities and hiring the best talent in the world. Back when companies were smaller and the world was less competitive, that model worked just fine. However, in 2000, newly appointed CEO A.G. Lafley saw that P&G couldn't meet its growth objectives by spending greater and greater amounts on R&D for smaller and smaller payoffs. Therefore, he dispensed with the company's age-old "invent it ourselves" approach to innovation and instead embraced a "connect and develop" model., what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicesbachelor, mastersuccessfulInnovation matrix, Open Innovation, Procter & Gamble, Tim Kastelle

Secondly, the project aimed to use existing conceptual frameworks relating to the effect of ACAP on innovative performance to develop and test the following hypothesis: The innovative performance of the open platform is positively moderated by four key drivers of ACAP: (1) Organisational structure and processes; (2) Firm members’ mental models; (3) Incentives and compensation practices; and (4) Power relationships. The research explored these aspects of an open industry platform through a case study of Symbian Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation governing and supporting the Symbian mobile platform and Nokia, a major contributing member company to the Symbian platform., what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicesbachelor, master, phdsuccessfulAbsorptive capacity,open platforms, innovative performance, organizational structure
627A Case study of Natura Campus OI platform - A collaborative systems overviewA presentation of the relation between open innovation and collaborative systems in Natura case Innovation is receiving considerable attention since companies are facing difficulties to create new products and interact with customers under markets that constantly changes. In the face of such scenario the open innovation seems to be an effective strategy to keep enterprises aware of customer needs and also interact with universities which are able to understand the tendencies and holds deep knowledge of innovative subjects. Although open innovation has a rich literature regarding the benefits and cases of success this literature does not focus on how collaboration systems are used to support open innovation. In this article we present the important relation that exists between open innovation and collaborative systems with a case study of Natura Campus program. We evaluated tools which compose the collaboration platform and how it supports Natura Campus Open Innovation. We found that CSCW tools are capable of support open innovation and help to bring effective results in order to enhance competitiveness., what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsmanufacturingbachelor, master, phdsuccessfulOpen innovation, collaboration systems, new products
597 Commercialising a disruptive technology based upon university IP through Open Innovation: A case study of Cambridge Display TechnologyThe use of a university (Cambridge) spin-out firm to bring a potentially disruptive technology to market. The focus for discussion is how a spin-out can build a technology ecosystem of providers of complementary resources to enable partner organizations to build competence in a novel and potentially disruptive technology. The paper uses the illustrative case of Cambridge Display Technology Ltd (CDT) to consider these issues from the perspective of the literature on open innovation (with particular emphasis on the role of partnerships between start-ups and established firms), the commercialization of university IP, and the commercialization of disruptive technologies., what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsmanufacturingbachelor, master, phdsuccessfulLED, Cambridge, University spin-outs, open innovation, disruptive technologies, technology ecosystem
