  18. 18. Open Innovation is an important tool in the fragmented seafood industry • Risk reduction • Reduced cost of innovation • Increased innovation speed • Improved success rate • Broader access to ideas • Learning • Capability building • Competence sharing • Solving grand challenges together (i.e. salt, sugar, fat) • etc.. Cooperation in areas where competition is of lesser importance25.01. ©Nofima/ØF-J/2012/NICE 18
  19. 19. To create successful innovations you need an innovative mindset Courage to be Behaviour and Ability to synthesize and innovative Attitude put into action Ask questions Observe and learn Challenge the from others Think outside the Innovative business ”status quo” box opportunities Build and use Taking risks networks Try and failAdapted from Christensen et al, The Innovators DNA 25.01. ©Nofima/ØF-J/2012/NICE 19

  21. 21. Open Innovation alters the borders of the firmClosed Innovation Principles Open Innovation Principles• The smart people in the field work for us • We need to work with smart people inside and outside the company• To profit from R&D, we must discover it, • External R&D can create significant value, develop it and ship it ourselves internal R&D is needed to claim some portion of that value• If we discover it ourselves, we will get it to the market first • We don’t have to originate the research to profit from it• The company that gets an innovation to the market first will win • Building a better business model is better than getting to the market first• If we create the most and the best ideas in the industry, we will win • If we make the best use of internal and external ideas, we will win• We should control our IP, so that our competitors don’t profit from our ideas • We should profit from other’s use of our IP, and we should buy others’ IP whenever it advances our business model Source: (Chesbrough, 2003) 25.01. ©Nofima/ØF-J/2012/NICE 21

  23. 23. Important points to remember in the process1. Know the decision boundaries2. Ask the right questions3. Select the right people4. Divide to smaller groups5. Keep everybody informed and aware of expectations6. Narrow down the ideas ©ØF-J7. Keep speed in the following process8. Know when to close for own value creation25.01. ©Nofima/ØF-J/2012/NICE 23

  25. 25. The seafood sector has to move from the traditional development model…. The selected projects are developed in own company Some projects are repositioned from ”no-go” to Creative phase Realization ”go”25.01. ©Nofima/ØF-J/2012/NICE 25
  26. 26. … to a model were different strategies lead to increased value creation Existing, external companies are developing the Innovation project Innovation projects are developed within the company ”Spin off” – projects are developed with new players Creative phase Realization25.01. ©Nofima/ØF-J/2012/NICE 26
  27. 27. In the seafood sector open innovation is a good tool.. Large differences in RD&I capacity:• Very few large corporations with own R&D• The industry is characterized by: – Fragmented value chain – SMEs with low R&D capability – Low R&D spending – Cooperative R&D financing• High focus on product innovation, but – Nine out of ten introductions fail in the market• High focus on process innovation as this historically renders more value25.01. ©Nofima/ØF-J/2012/NICE 27
