Knowledge Across Borders

  1. 1. Knowledge Across Borders Accelerate Building Trust to Unleash Innovation Martha G Russell Innovation Ecosystems Network Stanford Media X led Research Initiative October 7, 2010
  2. 2. Martha G Russell • Public-private partnerships – for science, technology & development – Tecnopolis, MAMTech, IC2 Institute, Incubators linking SMEs to Value Chain, CSATA, Agricultural Experiment Station, UNIDO • Research consortia: University – Industry IDR Research initiatives for education, research and outreach – Microelectronic and Information Sciences Center – Center for the Development of Technology Leadership – Burnt Orange Productions – IC2 Institute (Innovation, Creativity, Capital) Think and Do Tank • Technology Transfer, Marketing and Organizational Change – Internet2 Sociotechnical Summit, 1999 – Brand relationships, Retail messaging, Youth markets
  3. 3. Although people can communicate anywhere, anytime, it’s difficult for anyone to have all the insights necessary at any one time for major decisions on the complex global issues Innovation takes at least two. Team skills are required. There are winners and loosers.
  4. 4. The Innovation Ecosystems Network (IEN) brings together an international interdisciplinary team that seeks to develop and diffuse novel data and tools for understanding the catalytic impact of regional ICT experiments.
  5. 5. Innovation Ecosystems & Value Co-Creation Innovation Ecosystems Transformation Framework A dynamic innovation ecosystem is characterized by a continual realignment of synergistic relationships of people, knowledge, and resources that promote harmonious growth of the system in agile responsiveness to changing internal and external forces. Innovation Ecosystems refer to the inter-organizational, political, economic, environmental, and technological systems through which a milieu conducive to business growth is catalyzed, sustained, and supported. Value is co-created for the innovation ecosystem through events, impacts and coalitions/networks that emerge from a shared vision of the desired transformations. Data-driven metrics measure, track and visualise the transformation, empowering interaction with feedback for the shared vision. www.innovation-ecosystems.org
  6. 6. Research Problem/Questions Theme: How can data-driven visual social network analysis provide insights on innovation ecosystems? We look for insights that can be used to: • Identify and empower influential individuals for critical actions • Connect components to catalyze the evolution of the ecosystem • Develop and implement programs (meetings, funding, initiatives) to foster co-creator networks • Communicate complexity to co-create vision • Measure and transform an innovation ecosystem How do co-creation networks enable local/regional ROI on innovation investments made for globalization? Work in progress! www.innovation-ecosystems.org
  7. 7. Structure of the presentation • Innovation models are changing • The places of innovation are changing • Preliminary results from – Executive Women in Tech-Based Companies – Investments into and from China – Norway • Value Co-Creation
  8. 8. Models of innovation eClusters ! Collaborative Innovation Open innovation- Networks- Gloor Chesbrough 2003 2005 Strategic Innovation- Hamel and Prahalad 1994 End-user Innovation- von Hippel 1986 Economic Innovation (producer innovation)- Schumpeter 1934
  9. 9. Innovation Ecosystems Silicon Valley Norway The highest concentration of National and regional level entrepreneurial high-tech innovation systems and companies in the world; policies & support Government-Academia- STANFORD: Entrepreneurial management Industry relations Federal funding for fundamental research The network of Norwegian universities and Problem-oriented laboratories polytechnics, technology centers, Faculty leaves and industry affiliates programs, and other operations… Students as inventors, disseminators, and workforce Encouraging student entrepreneurship on campus … Silicon Valley dense but ad hoc social networks and Knowledge nearby planting ground for ideas, startups, & funding Innovation Ecosystem NetworksResources People Transformation Shared vision
  10. 10. Infrastructure for Resource Flows - - - Relationships The Way We USED to Think About Organizations New Organizational Chart Based on Relationships Relationship-Focused Co-Creation Infrastructure (Companies are interlocked through key people – information flow, norms, mental models.(Davis,1996) (Visual) Social Network Analysis “. . . allows investigators to gain new insights into the patterning of social connections, and it helps investigators to communicate their results to others.“ (Freeman, 2009)
  11. 11. Relationship Interlocks • Executives and key employees – Transfer of technologies and knowledge, professional networks, business culture, value-chain resources • Directors – US Fortune 500 firms interlocked (shared directors) with average 7 other firms • Corporate governance embedded and filtered through social structures – Executive compensation, strategies for takeovers, defending against takeovers • Gerald F. Davis, “The Significance of Board Interlocks for Corporate Governance,” Corporate Governance 4:3, 1996 • Investors and service providers – Awareness of external forces, competitive insights, resource leverage • Relationship interlocks provide – Social relationship “filter” for governance, information flow & norms – Transfer of implicit and explicit know-how – Mental models http://fusionenterprises.ca/Business_Training.php
  12. 12. Archetypes of Social Business Design • Ecosystem – a community of connections • HiveMind – a socially calibrated mindset of individuals • Dynamic Signal - the constant multi-faceted means of collaboration • Metafilter- a method of finding signals in vast amounts of noise
  13. 13. Social Roles in Social Media • Answer person – Outward ties to local isolates – Relative absence of triangles – Few intense ties • Reply Magnet – Ties from local isolates often inward only – Sparse, few triangles – Few intense ties  Discussion person  Ties from local isolates often inward only  Dense, many triangles  Numerous intense ties Journal of Social Structure “Visualizing the Signatures of Social Roles in Online Discussion Groups” http://www.cmu.edu/joss/content/articles/volume8/Welser/

  22. 22. Towards Actionable Co-Creation Insights Relationship interlocks structure We apply these methods and tools to resource flows for co-creation. better understand how local/regional investments made for globalization can Openly accessible data provides return benefits to the local region. directional results. Data can be federated to co-create datasets. Visual network analysis • Reveals co-creation relationships Make complex relationships known for • People, companies, funding sharing and co-creation • Reveals patterns of co-creation • Existing edges and potential links • Provides analytical opportunities • Augment dataset with data from multiple sources, if needed • Communicates complex relationships to diverse groups Johari Window, Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham, 1955

  63. 63. Discussion & Takeaways Knowledge crystallization provides co-creation feedback loop: also support for interventions, action research, policy analysis. Visualizations reveal multidimensional complexities. SNA metrics highlight patterns of ecosystem relationships. Technically, our framework for tracking, processing and visualizing data enables the parallel uses of various state of the art analysis tools. Data sources abound and can be federated for co-creation of analytical & actionable insights. Collaborations are welcome. Discovering the story behind numbers and their visualizations requires context, perspective, interaction and iteration! www.innovation-ecosystems.org
