I hope you can attend the 13th Annual Co-Development and Open Innovation Congress, CoDev2014: Connected for Growth, on January 27 – 29, 2014 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Find out how companies are dealing with the latest trends in Open Innovation!
- Open Innovation is no longer a separate process as it is being integrated into standard business processes
- Open Innovation is going beyond traditional Research & Development and is becoming more cross-functional in nature. Marketing, Supply Chain, Sales, etc. are all playing a role and often leading the company’s Open Innovation activities.
- The level of Open Innovation continues to mature in many organizations progressing beyond typical supplier engagements to multi-partner cooperatives.
- Deal structures are becoming more complex as Open Innovation capabilities become more sophisticated and more Universities realize the value of the intellectual property. Basic three to five page agreements are now becoming much larger documents as risk adverse companies and changing regulations factor into the open innovation marketplace.
