Final thoughts• Open innovation is about jointly creating value• In a network economy, there is already value inthe network• Selective openness can be valuable in manyaspects of your organisation, but• There is no such thing as 100% open(or 100% closed for that matter)
Final thoughts II• Chain up, run in packs, cocreate,With your users, partners and suppliers• Start the open innovation discussion with:What you are closed about and what you do notwant to share• Resistance is actually a good thing
