Leading Open Innovation

The MIT Press

This chapter examines how internal exchange of information supports open innovation (OI). It discusses the result of a study showing a high correlation between cooperation within a group and knowledge transfer across group boundaries and that the smartest contributors to OI projects have strong external contacts. It also suggests that project leaders should establish organizational boundaries to protect valuable data and create projects that ignite the latent energy for cooperation found in every organization.

Keywords:   exchange of information, open innovation, knowledge transfer, external contacts, organizational boundaries, cooperation
