2014-02 Being innovative remains a prerequisite in a globalized world where procurement occurs globally, companies outsource internationally and consumers purchase online. Traditional innovation models rely on a firm’s internal scientists, engineers and technicians to convert ideas into commercial products.
In a world where the majority of knowledge exists outside the walls of any given firm, collaboration or ‘open innovation’ provides opportunities to reduce cost of conducting R&D and improve on development productivity. By collaborating with suppliers and customers firms engaging in open innovation can begin to unlock their supply chain.
