  5. 5. Objective  But which is the right method for open innovation?  Which are the criteria to plan an open innovation project?  Which intermediary or service provider has specific knowledge and expertise in, e.g., crowdsourcing, the lead user method, Netnography, idea contests, technology scouting, or broadcast search? www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  6. 6. •“There’s a better way for management teams to grow their companies. But they will need the courage to challenge some of the paradigms of financial analysis and the willingness to develop alternative methodologies” Clayton M. Christensen www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja

  8. 8. The Open Innovation Paradigm www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  9. 9. Open Innovation Management  What are the options to implement an Open Innovation program? Go at it alone: ○ Website and social media Engage an Open Innovation platform ○ Open innovation software ○ Open innovation services www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  10. 10. Open Innovation Services vs. Software  Open Innovation Services offer a communities of experts in a variety of fields. Problems are posted for a fee to get feedback from the community  Open Innovation Software/Platforms relies in the company’s customer base and a broader reach www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja

  12. 12. www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja Case Study: Piloting open innovation (co-creation with technical experts) in the German industry  Group of German engineering companies in the automotive industry: Suppliers and users of driving systems (gear boxes, power train , etc.), organized in industry association (called "FVA")  Many of them are world market leaders in their sector  Very engineering driven, successful, very "German" engineers. Typical example of "local search" !  Problem: For some technical problems, they did not find sufficient solution  Project with our group: Pilot co-creation for technical problem solving ==> “We took some problems they could not solve before and "crowd-sourced" these problems to external problem solvers via an intermediary (broker)” Frank T. Piller RWTH Technology & Innovation Management Group, RWTH Aachen, Germany
  13. 13. www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja Source: David Feitler 2010 In the project, we selected five problems from companies and the FVA research consortium to be "broadcasted" by NineSigma. Frank T. Piller RWTH Technology & Innovation Management Group, RWTH Aachen, Germany

  16. 16. www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja Return on open innovation Data from VDMA project in textile machinery industry Direct cost of OI project € 18 000 ,- + approx. 2 person months Estimated value of realized solution € 375 000,- ROI : approx. 2000% Quality of solution: Fit to requirement: 89% in average of suited solutions Frank T. Piller RWTH Technology & Innovation Management Group, RWTH Aachen, Germany
  17. 17. Open Innovation Software  Spigit SpigitEngage for Facebook, organizations can engage their customers in social co-creation by tapping customer insights through idea generation, free thought, campaigns, contests, and game dynamics.  Ryma Ideascope integrates customer feedback with other systems like Help Desk, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Demand Management www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  18. 18. Open Innovation Software  Imaginatik Innovation Central collaboration platform allows organizations to include or exclude whichever groups or individuals are most appropriate for the topic  Nosco Idea management software Publish, rate and collaborate on ideas www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  19. 19. www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja Smarty Ears’ Open Innovation Program  Smarty Ears is the largest app publishing company in the segment of speech and language development.  Over 40 total Apps  Most for iPhone and iPad but some for Android.  Promotion is via Social Media and Website www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  20. 20. www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja How The Program Works  Just like in traditional publishing, there are authors to books/therapy materials and there are publishers. Smarty Ears is the App publisher and the submitter is the author  Submitters continue to own the idea and materials they provide, and therefore they get paid royalties for it. The final application, coding, and any art work developed belongs to Smarty Ears.  Typical contract is 5 to 10 yearswww.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  21. 21. Royalties  Authors receive a royalty of 5% to 15% on all sales for their app.  The amount of royalty is decided based on  Level of expertise  Amount of material provided by you to us on the creation of the app  Complexity of the application.  Apps have name, bio, photo of author www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  22. 22. Program Growth  In the past Smarty Ears’ open innovation program was limited Apps that Smarty Ears could not do on its own because of lack of expertise.  Today the program has expanded to include apps that Smarty Ears could do Looking for submitters that can devote the time to Co- development and not just submit ideas. Higher probability of success www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  23. 23. Benefits of Co-Development  Submitters are passionate about their idea They want it to be perfect Test with their heart Become the most effective salespersons www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  24. 24. App Creation Flow  Create mockup  Create content Questions  Select images  Create flow of product  Coding  Bug testing  iTunes description www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  25. 25. www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja Open Innovation Program Results  ~10 ideas for new apps/month  1 out of 10 becomes an app.  10 new apps are a result of this process More apps to market - faster  Recent app release from Open Innovation program “Fun and Functional” is currently on top 50 educational app list on iTuneswww.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  26. 26. Program Lessons  Win-Win Scenario Not a one-time payment Both the company and the submitter benefit from the success of the product  % Revenue sharing goes down if author does not participate in updates with content. Does not include bug fixing www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  27. 27. www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja P&G  Connect and Develop – Model for Open Innovation Launched in 2000  P&G needs are posted on website in classified categories, and then anyone can propose their ideas and get assessed by a specialized team.  By 2006, 35% of all P&G products had an external component vs. 15% in 2000  R&D productivity increased 60% www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  28. 28. P&G Update –  P&G CEO Lafley decentralized R&D, making business-unit heads responsible for developing new items.  R&D chief Brown says that inadvertently slowed innovation by more closely tying research spending to immediate profit concerns.  Between 2003 and 2008, the sales of new product rollouts shrank by half. www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja
  29. 29. Keys to Success  OI is a way to speed up time to market and increase probability of success  OI includes sourcing for products, technology, intellectual property and ideas.  OI is NOT outsourcing. OI requires constant interactions between companies and inventors. It requires huge partnering capabilities on both sides.  OI will not decrease a company’s costs – it will only move it among line items. R&D budget may be less over time, but Legal and Business Development budgets will increase immediately.  Source: Open Innovation – Paradigm Shift or Program?

  30. 30. Lessons Learned  Using the right approach to open innovation is critical for success Depends on the type of problem/industry  Open Innovation is NOT a substitute for R&D and a long-term innovation program Must use a non-linear management approach designed for radical or disruptive innovation, e.g. Spiral Approach www.Brioneja.com Twitter: @Brioneja Resources Resources TimeTime Level 1 2 3 VOC Idea Generation Technology Assessment Prototype Development Customer Testing Business CaseValue in Use Analysis Regulatory IP Strategy Supply Chain Analysis Roadmap/Timeline Risk Analysis The SpyroTek™ Method for Innovation Management Launch Quadrant I Quadrant IIQuadrant III Quadrant IV Twitter: @Brioneja www.Brioneja.com
