Open Innovation

Henry Chesbrough wrote about open innovation

The Open Innovation Institute has benefited from Chesbrough's writings.

There are big differences between open innovation and closed innovation. Closed innovation seeks strong control over the innovation process.

Closed innovation organizations became something related to self-sufficient ivory towers removed from the other world. Minimal communication and interactions such as with open innovation are practiced.

Both open innovation and closed innovation rely on cultural mindsets on the creative process.  Closed innovation has many of the traits of a sub-culture, with its own idiosyncrasies - see "Closing Of The American Mind".

The big debate is if open innovation or closed innovation will dominate future innovations.
