  11. 11. Conclusion and implications<br />Contribution: the submission adds to current understanding the link between Open Innovation and internal collaborative innovation, both contributing to changing an innovation mindset within an enterprise.

It also clearly communicates a will to develop new skills and expertise to be able to implement successfully this 12 stream innovation mix. <br />
