What Open Compute Project has in store for us all in 2020! webinar

Hello everybody and welcome to our new SlideShare post!
The slides you are seeing are taken from our 12th webinar: What Open Compute Project has in store for us all in 2020! (you can find the video here:

Together with Lesya Dymyd and Adrien Badina of 2CRSi, and Steve Helvie of OCP we talked about innovation, standardisation, open source and we went through the roadmap of OCP for 2020.
Among the topics we covered:
- OCP in the world: how the integration and the adoption of OCP standards vary from one continent to another.
- The current challenges with OCP adoption and OCP organization.
- The path from innovation to standardization.
- The contemporary scenario: who’s innovating and who’s not?
- What are the hottest upcoming tech areas?
- Planning and executing: how a big organization should embrace innovation?

  14. 14. Open Innovation: Basics Open innovation is defined as the purposive use of inflows and outflows of knowledge to accelerate innovation in one’s market and expand the use of internal knowledge in external markets. (Chesbrough et al. 2006) 78% of firms said they were practicing open innovation Targeted partners: customer, universities, suppliers. Source: Survey Report «Managing open innovation in large firms» , Executive survey on open innovation, Chesbrough and Brunswicker, 2013
  15. 15. Innovation… why? Strategic objectives • Partnerships • Exploration of trends • New opportunities / BMI • Optimization of R&D processes (lower costs, faster development, time to market…)
  16. 16. Organizational best practices Formal and informal practices to manage your open innovation: 1) Documented open innovation strategy 2) Open innovation culture (norms, values, beliefs) 3) Formalization of responsibilities and roles 4) Formalization of operational activities and procedures 5) Formal metrics, KPI
  17. 17. How to measure efficiency? KPIs and metrics • External innovation contribution for R&D projects • Number of innovation partners • Cost/benefit evaluation of innovation partners (Revenues & Budget) • Number of new tech trends identified per year • Number of patents granted, acquired, utilized and funded
