Open Innovation Defined

Ideation, Strategic Thinking, Complex Problem Solving

The heart of Innovation is THINKING. Deep Thinking and ReTHINKING. The Innovation process forges powerful new strategies through the process of idea generation. When does an idea become Innovation? When it creates new markets or transforms the way business is done. Business innovation begins with focused creativity and ideation for the purpose of increasing value.

Office BoxWhat is open innovation and how does it work? Open innovation occurs when individuals look for outside of their own organization, knowledge, experience and industry. Some years ago, an aircraft engineer attended an Indy car race and was intrigued by the vertical wings on the cars. He questioned the crew engineers and learned that they were added to increase fuel economy and stability. Hence, the upturned wings you see on commercial aircraft today.



Not InnovationWhat innovation is NOT….. it is not just a great idea. Businesses must make profits to survive. If an idea offers no market value or bottom-line improvement for operations, then it is simply an idea. It is not innovation. Professional facilitation keeps innovation on track
