The advent of Internet marked a significant change in how users and customers can be involved in the innovative process. History is rife with examples of how users innovate, but Internet and its associated communication technologies brought radically new means for individuals to interact rapidly and at little cost in communities that spur new innovations. These communities are initiated and governed by people that differ in their motivations for taking part and participate to varying degrees. Such communities are outside the immediate control of companies seeking to develop open innovation strategies aimed at harnessing their work. This book brings together distinguished scholars from different disciplines: economics, organization theory, innovation studies and marketing in order to provide an improved understanding of how technological as well as symbolic value is created and appropriated at the intersection between online communities and firms. Empirical examples are presented from different industries, including software, services and manufacturing. The book offers food for thought for academics and managers to an important phenomenon that challenges many conventional wisdoms for how business can be done. This book was published as a special issue of Industry and Innovation.

Companies have to innovate to stay competitive, and they have to collaborate with other organizations to innovate effectively. Although the benefits of "open innovation" have been described in detail before, underlying mechanisms how companies can be successful open innovators have not beunderstood well. A growing community of innovation management researchers started to develop different frameworks to understand open innovation in a more systematic way. This book provides a thorough examination of research conducted to date on open innovation, as well as a comprehensive overview of what will be the most important, most promising and most relevant research topics in this area during the next decade. "Open Innovation: Researching a new paradigm" (OUP2006) was the first initiative to bring open innovation closer to the academic community. Open innovation research has since then been growing in an exponential way and research has evolved in different and unexpected directions. As the research field is growing, it becomes increasingly difficultfor young (and even experienced scholars) to keep an overview of the most important trends in open innovation research, of the research topics that are most promising for the coming years, and of the most interesting management challenges that are emerging in organizations practicing openinnovation. In the spirit of an open approach to innovation, the editors have engaged other scholars and practitioners to contribute some of their interesting insights in this book.

The concept of open innovation has become increasingly popular in the management and policy literature on technology and innovation. However, despite the large volume of empirical work, many of the prescriptions being proposed are fairly general and not specific to particular contexts and contingencies. The proponents of open innovation are universally positive but research suggests that the specific mechanisms and outcomes of open innovation models are very sensitive to context and contingency. This is not surprising because the open or closed nature of innovation is historically contingent and does not entail a simple shift from closed to open as often suggested in the literature. Research has shown that patterns of innovation differ fundamentally by sector, firm and strategy. Therefore, there is a need to examine the mechanisms that help to generate successful open innovation. In this book, the authors contribute to a shift in the debate from potentially misleading general prescriptions, and provide conceptual and empirical insights into the precise mechanisms and potential limitations of open innovation research and management practice. Contents:Introduction: Why We Need a Tighter Theory and More Critical Research on Open Innovation (Joe Tidd)Taxonomies and Modes:Different Modes of Open Innovation: A Theoretical Framework and an Empirical Study (Valentina Lazzarotti and Raffaella Manzini)Advancing a Typology of Open Innovation (S C Ellis, Peter T Gianiodis and E Secchi)How to Balance Open and Closed Innovation: Strategy and Culture as Influencing Factors (Ellen Enkel and Karoline Bader)Context and Contingencies:The Role of Open Innovation in Dynamic Environments (Fiona Schweitzer, Kurt Gaubinger and Oliver Gassmann)A Conceptual Model of Open Innovation for New Product Development Projects: Towards a Contingency Theory (Hanna Bahemia and Brian Squire)Open Service Innovation: The Influence of Project Novelty (Joe Tidd and Kuo-Nan Hsieh)Exploring the Use of Open Innovation in Processes, Products and Services (Amy Huang and John Rice)Managing Open Innovation in Multinational Enterprises: Combining Open Innovation and R&D Globalization Literature (Wim Vanhaverbeke, Jingshu Du and Maximilian von Zedtwitz)Sector and Industry Studies:Measuring the Impact of Inbound Open Innovation Practices on Performance in Services (Anne-Laure Mention and Anna-Leena Asikainen)Generativity and Innovation in Smartphone Ecosystems (Björn Remneland-Wikhamn, Jan Ljungberg, Magnus Bergquist and Jonas Kuschel)Toward a Dynamic Perspective on Open Innovation: A Longitudinal Assessment of the Adoption of Internal and External Innovation Strategies in the Netherlands (Tom Poot, Dries Faems and Wim Vanhaverbeke)Investigating Inter-Industry Differences in the Implementation of Open Innovation (Tommaso Buganza, Davide Chiaroni, Gabriele Colombo and Federico Frattini)Limitations and Constraints of Open Innovation:Open Innovation: Old Ideas in a Fancy Tuxedo Remedy a False Dichotomy (Paul Trott and Dap Hartmann)Not for Everybody: Why Some Organisations Benefit More from Open Innovation than Others (Torsten Oliver Salge, Thomas Marc Bohné, Tomas Farchi and Erk Peter Piening)Positive and Negative Dynamics of Open Innovation (Michael M Hopkins, Joe Tidd and Paul Nightingale) Readership: Graduate students, researchers and practitioners in the field of open innovation and management. Key Features:This book challenges the claims that open innovation represents a universal good practiceThis book provides vital insights into the mechanics of open innovation and its potential limitationsKeywords:Innovation;Open Innovation;Technology Management;Product DevelopmentReviews: "In sum, this interesting book illustrates that the simple dichotomy between open and closed approaches for innovation is not realistic, and that there are pitfalls to open innovation. This book can certainly be useful to managers trying to keep up with the fast changing environment and with the current challenges of innovation, but is more useful to academic scholars."

The corporate start-up incubator is currently developing in large companies as an essential approach to open innovation. It faces a global system involving varied contexts, issues and actors. Its implementation is an art and to succeed the corporate incubator must become a real "interaction architect". Using testimonials and real case studies, the author takes a dive into the structural and social mysteries of corporate incubators. By analyzing the complex mechanisms of interactions, this book decrypts and reveals the keys to the success of these devices and to opening innovation in a broad sense. The concept of an “interaction architect” is related to the art of building fruitful interactions within human systems. Being aware that social systems exist is good, but knowing how to manage them is better.
