This book features latest research insights into the study of the entrepreneurial ecosystem. The focus is on understanding its influence on the development of socially and physically defined ‘places’, and how these factors are related with each other. The book argues that regardless of how the concept of a ‘place’ is defined, be it cities, regions, nations or otherwise, the impact of new technologies will influence much of our business, social, and economic landscapes. Evidently, there is an increasing pressure on ‘places’ to embrace new opportunities for strategic development and confront complacency. The solution may very well be in creating and sustaining entrepreneurial ecosystems where entrepreneurial action thrives and innovation drives the new economy.

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."

Based on interviews with R&D managers and a survey amongst R&D employees, Verena Nedon shows that perceived social pressure has an immense impact on R&D employees working in OI-projects. Employees’ attitude (regardless of whether positive or negative) and perceived behavioral control play an important, but not dominant role. The study also implies that intrinsic motivators have a stronger effect on employees’ willingness to engage in knowledge exchange with external partners than extrinsic components. By targeting a set of relevant questions related to the human side of open innovation, the study significantly contributes to the micro-foundation of OI-research and sheds light on the hitherto neglected perspective of employees engaged in OI-projects. The findings are relevant for scholars, companies already following the OI-approach and OI-newcomers.
