  1. 1. Profiting from External Innovation Joel West Marcel Bogers San Jose State U. U. of Southern Denmark, Sønderborg Keck Graduate Institute Industry Studies Conference June 2, 2011Overview• Our study of inbound open innovation  Based on review of 280 OI publications  Three-phrase process model  Recommendations re gaps/opportunities• Link back to crowdsourcing
  2. 2. Inbound Open Innovation What is “Open Innovation”? “Open innovation is the use of purposive inflows and outflows of knowledge to accelerate internal innovation, and expand the markets for external use of innovation, respectively.”Source: Chesbrough (2006)See also OpenInnovation.net/definition
  3. 3. Other definitional issues • Conflating innovation  with invention (OK for now)  with knowledge or antecedents (not OK)  with content (not OK) • Success metrics  Tend to be IP or product output  Rarely: financial performance Model for inbound OI Innova&on Focal  Firm Source 1 2 3 Sales  / Customers R&D Marke.ng Innova&on SourceProfiting from external innovations1.

  4. 4. 1. Obtaining• Searching: sourcing, brokerage, limits• Enabling: contests, toolkits, platforms• Filtering: gatekeepers, scouts• Acquiring: incentives, contracts2. Integrating• External vs. internal innovations  Substitutes vs. complements?  Absorptive capacity  Culture: NIH• Incentives to integration• Implications for competencies  For producing internal innovations  For incorporating external innovations
  5. 5. 3. Commercializing• Commercialization process  Similar or different vs. internal innovations?• Value creation  Most common topic  Standard NPD metrics• Value capture  Reduced cost or increased margin?Nonrecursive paths• Feedback loops  R&D feedback  Customer/market feedback  E.g. “voice of the customer”• Reciprocal engagement  Co-creation  Communities  Value networks  E.g. joint ventures, R&D alliances
