511Web 2.0 Learning - A Case Study on Organizational Competences in Open Content InnovationIn this paper, a process-based view on shifting from proprietary towards Open Content Innovation in the LMS1 market is described based on in-depth research within KOPIWA2 – a pre-competitive joint research project on “Competences Monitoring for Open Innovation in the Digital Economy” in Germany. A longitudinal case study approach in shifting to a new Web 2.0 compatible business model is presented. The model focuses on providing process-facilitation, as opposed to the marketing of traditional Learning Management and Content Creation-Software. It serves as a basis for empirical insights into the management challenges and organizational competences that must be addressed to cope with Open Innovation. The results clearly point out that to master the challenges of Open innovation there can be no simple ‘switch of a button’, such as adopting the newest fashionable management tool. Instead, a far-reaching management paradigm shift is necessary to successfully accomplish Open Innovation. Among those behavioral patterns that need to be changed are (1) breaking rules and conventional management routines, (2) becoming accustomed to upside-down thinking to amplify organizational boundaries, (3) process facilitation instead of micro-management, (4) developing sophisticated networking evolution skills, (5) establishing an effective stakeholder management system, (6) managing by clear outside-in and inside-out principles.single case study/var/www/oi-net/www/media/breezingforms/uploads/Web_2.0_Learning_Hafkesbrink_Scholl.pdfdescriptive coupledwhy_organisation, what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicessuccessfulbachelor, master, phd, executiveOpen Innovation; Open Source Innovation; Open Content Innovation; Outside-in Management; Inside-Out Management; Organizational Competences; Individual Competences; New Business Development86Joachim

489Scouting Networks for Competitive AdvantageThe case presented is based on the study of Rohrbeck (2010) on how Deutsche Telecom, British Telecom, and Telefónica employ technology scouting approaches. The presentation briefly illustrates how Deutsche Telekom uses a specific approach aimed at identification, anticipation, and assessment of technological changes using a network of experts. Furthermore, it also briefly shows how Deutsche Telecom uses the same network to support the planning and execution of appropriate action for the identified technological changes by using a technology radar. Rohrbeck, R. 2010. Harnessing a network of experts for competitive advantage - Technology Scouting in the ICT Industry. R&D Management, 40(20): 169-180.Building on case-study data from three telecommunication operators, this case describes and discusses the technology scouting approach of Deutsche Telekom (Germany). Informants were chosen to reflect three distinct perspectives: the internal stakeholder, the internal activity responsible, and the foresighters who were asked about the process and methods. Furthermore, internal documents such as foresight reports and process descriptions were collected and analysed./var/www/oi-net/www/media/breezingforms/uploads/Rohrbeck_Scouting-Networks-for-Competitive-Advantage_v2.pdfteaching inboundwhat_practicesservicessuccessfulbachelor, executiveTechnology Scouting, Technology Management, Innovation Management, Corporate Foresight, Open Innovation, Networks150Tymen

488Open Innovation Instruments at Deutsche TelekomThe case presented is based on the study of Rohrbeck, Hölze, and Gemünen (2009) on how Deutsche Telecom has opened up its innovation instruments. The presentation briefly illustrates how Deutsche Telekom as a large multinational operating in a highly volatile industry embraces open innovation instruments to form an 'open innovation ecosystem'. It identifies 11 open innovation instruments that are used to create company-specific innovations. The instruments used by Deutsche Telekom are mapped along the stages of the innovation process and the intensity (budget, time, resources) with which they are pursued. Some concluding remarks are made, as well as relevant discussion points highlighted. Rohrbeck, R., Hölzle K. and H.G. Gemünden (2009): Opening up for competitive advantage - How Deutsche Telekom creates an open innovation ecosystem, R&D Management, Vol.39, S. 420-430. The case is based on a single case study. Using exploratory interviews with 10 respondents from Deutsche Telekom, as well as 5 respondents from companies in the partner network for further triangulation of the data. Respondents were encouraged to describe the different open innovation activities thoroughly. The unguided descriptions given by respondents were then often followed up by closed questions for further validation of the given information. The transcripts were coded to support the analysis of the different open innovation instruments, which were subsequently categorized among two dimensions. teaching inboundwhat_practicesservicesneutralbachelor, executiveOpen innovation, collaborative innovation, Deutsche Telekom150Tymen
509Old Wine in New Bottles? A Case Study on Organizational Antecedents for Open Innovation ManagementIn this paper, experiences with organizational antecedents for Open Innovation are presented, based on an in-depth case study conducted within the framework of KOPIWA1 – a pre-competitive joint research project on “Competences Monitoring for Open Innovation in the Digital Economy” in Germany. The empirical findings on organizational competences within this case study are based on hypotheses and research questions that have been tackled in more detail in [4]. The results indicate that the focal open innovator’s organizational and management routines evolved organically from closed to open innovation over the last years, as a result of the overall market, network and technology dynamics in the Digital Economy innovation system. The findings also reveal that, especially in the Digital Economy, ‘Innovation 2.0’ (also known as ‘Open Innovation’) is not entirely new, but rather a more natural and logical continuation of “new internet based innovation processes and business models” that have been developed in the past decade, noteably with ‘Open Source’.case study/var/www/oi-net/www/media/breezingforms/uploads/Old_Wine_in_New_Bottles_Hafkesbrink_Krause_Westermaier.pdfdescriptive coupledwhy_organisation, what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicessuccessfulbachelor, master, phd, executiveOpen Innovation; Open Source Innovation; Open Content Innovation; Outside-in Management; Inside-Out Management; Organizational Competences; Individual Competences; New Business Development86Joachim

512Networks of Inter-organizational Knowledge Development within the Open Innovation The case focuses on the inter-organisational knowledge development networks for open innovation. The key questions are focused on the revealing the role of inter-organisational network in the open innovation development, the rationales for inclusion of various actors into the knowledge development networks, and contribution of knowledge for innovation by various organisations. Two different knowledge development networks, representing a closed and open inter-organisational network for open innovation approach are analysed. The research method applied is a case study approach, which is best suited to the objectives of our study: constructing theoretical approaches and revealing still relatively unknown aspects of the relationships being studied. The inter-organisational knowledge development networks chosen for analysis come from the high technology industry (optics and medical devices, NACE 33). Both networks are facilitated by globally born SME‘s (Vittamed, and Ekspla) originating from Lithuania, a small catching up country./var/www/oi-net/www/media/breezingforms/uploads/Petraite_ICICKM_2010_paper.docdescriptive; inboundwhy_organisation, what_practicesmanufacturingsuccessfulmaster, phd, executivenetworks, open innovation, knowledge development, R&D intensive firm115Monika

507Innovation 3.0: Embedding into community knowledge - The relevance of trust as enabling factor for collaborative organizational learning -The paper describes a conceptual approach for a next-generation innovation paradigm in the Digital Economy called “Embedded Innovation” (Innovation 3.0). The notion of “embeddedness” is introduced to mark the increasing challenge of integrating firms into their surrounding communities to assure the absorption of their exploitable knowledge. Trust is supposed to be the enabling parameter in balancing multiple relationships with communities. In the paper the evolutionary steps from Closed via Open to Embedded Innovation in SME are described. On the basis of the firm’s different relationships and knowledge flows with respect to its surrounding communities different modes of how to cultivate trust are defined and how this may unfold leverage effects for organizational embedding into communities. Finally, as a basic for further research, hypotheses on different organizational antecedents are developed that may be appropriate to embed the firm into communities with the aim of ensuring knowledge absorption and collaborative learning.multiple case study/var/www/oi-net/www/media/breezingforms/uploads/Innovation_3_0_Relevance_of_Trust.pdfdescriptive coupledwhy_organisation, what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicessuccessfulbachelor, master, phd, executiveInnovation 3.0; Communities; Collaborative Learning; Trust; Open Innovation; Embeddedness; Organizational Change; Digital Economy.86Joachim
508INNOVATION 3.0: EMBEDDING INTO COMMUNITY KNOWLEDGE - COLLABORATIVE ORGANIZATIONAL LEARNING BEYOND OPEN INNOVATIONThis paper describes a conceptual approach for a next-generation innovation paradigm in the Digital Economy called “Embedded Innovation” (Innovation 3.0). The approach is based on the observation that, in order to survive, SMEs – especially those operating in an increasing dynamic and digitalized environment, with knowledge being the most indispensable and important resource for innovation – need to establish trusted relations to aligned communities, networks and stakeholders (Hafkesbrink, Evers, 2010). The notion of “embeddedness” is introduced to mark the increasing challenge of substantially integrating firms into their surrounding communities so as to assure the absorption of their exploitable knowledge. The approach of a network based social embeddedness has already been marked by Granovetter (1985) and supported the discussion in the new economic sociology substantially. In this context, Innovation 3.0 goes beyond Open Innovation (defined as “Innovation 2.0”) and clearly beyond Closed Innovation (defined as “Innovation 1.0”). It does so as it conceptually embraces specific ambidextrous organizational capabilities (O’Reilly and Tushman, 2008) of using dedicated institutional arrangements to accomplish the embedding process. These arrangements may be implicit (e.g. trust culture; see Hafkesbrink and Evers, 2010) or explicit (e.g. formal contracts), explorative or exploitative, organic or mechanic (Tushman et al., 2002), depending on the nature and phase of the innovation process and the characteristics of relationships.multiple case studies/var/www/oi-net/www/media/breezingforms/uploads/Innovation_3.0_Embedding_into_Community_Knowledge.pdfdescriptive inboundwhy_organisation, what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicessuccessfulbachelor, master, phd, executiveOpen Innovation; Innovation 3.0, collaborative learning86Joachim

506Controlled Opening in pro-active SME Innovation - A Case Study on an ‘Open Innovation Audit’ in the Digital EconomyIn this paper, we will present results from an Open Innovation Audit case study in the mobile business solution area conducted within the framework of KOPIWA – a pre-competitive joint research project on “Competences Monitoring for Open Innovation in the Digital Economy” in Germany. The Open Innovation ‘Quick Check’ Audit Tool was developed to measure organizational antecedents and competences towards more innovation openness in SMEs of the Digital Economy. The results indicate that even a quick-check audit may give reasonable insights into organizational requirements of Open Innovation. By substantiating organizational competences via more tangible indicators the audit provides discussion points for the innovation actors to find set-screws in the sense of parameters to improve the innovation process.single case study/var/www/oi-net/www/media/breezingforms/uploads/Controlled_Opening_Hafkesbrink_Stark_Schmucker.pdfdescriptive inboundwhy_organisation, what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicessuccessfulbachelor, master, phd, executiveOpen Innovation; Open Source Innovation; Open Content Innovation; Outside-in Management; Inside-Out Management; Organizational Competences; Individual Competences; New Business Development86Joachim
505Contextual Ambidexterity and Individual Competencies for Exploration and Exploitation in Small and Medium sized EnterprisesThis paper describes a new ambidexterity model to balance exploration and exploitation activities in SMEs, and the empirical results of applying this model in the German Publishing and New Media Industry. Due to an enduring discontinuous change in the firm’s environment, this sector is under enormous pressure to pursue innovation processes with the aim to develop new online products and services. This paper is organized as follows: first we will describe the new ambidexterity model that embraces the role of organizational antecedents and individual competencies for the firms' overall exploration and exploitation performance. Then, we will describe the state-of-the-art research on the moderating role of organizational antecedents for exploration and exploitation performance. Next, we will reflect on individual compe-tencies for exploration and exploitation, which prove to be an almost entirely new field of research. After describing the research setting, we will focus on the dedicated hypotheses for organizational antecedents and individual competencies driving ex-ploration and exploitation. Finally, after presenting the related empirical results, we will outline our initial conclusions and the limitations of the research presented in this paper.multiple case study/var/www/oi-net/www/media/breezingforms/uploads/Contextual_Ambidexterity_Hafkesbrink_Bachem_Kulenovic.pdfdescriptive coupledwhy_organisation, what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicessuccessfulbachelor, master, phdContextual Ambidexterity; Open Innovation, Individual Competences; Organizational Competences, Small and medium Sized Enterprises86Joachim
504Business Model Innovation in the Digital and New Media EconomyThis paper outlines the increasing challenges of Business Model Innovation in the Digital and New Media Economy. It describes drivers of change, impacts on the innovation and business landscape, consequences for business modeling and the innovation process, as well as the implications for organizational adaptation. It presents in-depth observations from empirical research on 12 business cases in the Digital and Media Economy in Germany. Our findings show that business modeling in the Digital Economy needs to be continuously cross-linked to the innovation process to adapt to the ever changing business environment. It becomes clear that Business Models in the Digital Economy need to be “open” so as to be able to continuously embed them into the firm’s surrounding communities, and to ensure knowledge transfer and learning. We will align our arguments with earlier research on Open Innovation and Innovation 3.0 - which we have earlier called “Embedded Innovation” - taking a more practical view on the implementation of new Business Models.Multiple Case Study/var/www/oi-net/www/media/breezingforms/uploads/Business_Model_Innovation_Hafkesbrink_Schroll_2010.pdfdescriptive coupledwhy_organisation, what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicessuccessfulbachelor, master, phdBusiness Model Innovation, Innovation 3.0, Open Innovation, Ambidextrous Organization, Organizational Adaptation, Communities of Knowledge, Digital Economy, New Media Economy86Joachim

503Ambidextrous Competences for Open InnovationThis paper describes a conceptual approach to individual and organizational competencies needed for Open Innovation (OI) using a new ambidexterity model. It starts from the assumption that the entire innovation process is rarely open by all means, as the OI concept may suggest. It rather takes into consideration that in practice especially for early phases of the innovation process the organization and their innovation actors are opening up for new ways of joint ideation, collaboration etc. to gain a maximum of explorative performance and effectiveness. Though, when it comes to committing considerable resources to development and implementation activities, the innovation process usually closes step by step as efficiency criteria gain ground for a maximum of knowledge exploitation. The ambidexterity model of competences for OI refers to these tensions and provides a new framework to understand the needs of industry and Higher Education Institutes (HEI) to develop appropriate exploration and exploitation competencies for OI.Conceptual framework for organizational and individual competences needed for Open Innovation./var/www/oi-net/www/media/breezingforms/uploads/Ambidextrous_Competences_for_OI_Hafkesbrink_Schroll.pdfdescriptive coupledwhy_organisation, what_practices, how_implemented, what_effectsservicesneutralmaster, phdOpen Innovation; Exploration; Exploitation; Ambidexterity; Organizational Antecedents; Individual Competencies; Organizational Competencies86Joachim
