This chapter examines open innovation from the contributors’ point of view. It describes when modular collective problem-solving activity is motivated by intrinsic rewards and highlights the role of the innovation community in motivating input. It explains that these types of open innovation projects flourish in an open organizational structure and peer leaders actively promote a common view of the work being done. This chapter also suggests that innovative leaders should learn to post problems and provide more information to open communities.

Keywords:   open innovation, contributors, problem-solving activity, intrinsic rewards, open organizational structure, peer leaders, innovative leaders
