The concept of open innovation has become increasingly popular in the management and policy literature on technology and innovation. However, despite the large volume of empirical work, many of the prescriptions being proposed are fairly general and not specific to particular contexts and contingencies. The proponents of open innovation are universally positive but research suggests that the specific mechanisms and outcomes of open innovation models are very sensitive to context and contingency. This is not surprising because the open or closed nature of innovation is historically contingent and does not entail a simple shift from closed to open as often suggested in the literature. Research has shown that patterns of innovation differ fundamentally by sector, firm and strategy. Therefore, there is a need to examine the mechanisms that help to generate successful open innovation. In this book, the authors contribute to a shift in the debate from potentially misleading general prescriptions, and provide conceptual and empirical insights into the precise mechanisms and potential limitations of open innovation research and management practice.

Key Features:This book challenges the claims that open innovation represents a universal good practiceThis book provides vital insights into the mechanics of open innovation and its potential limitationsKeywords:Innovation;Open Innovation;Technology Management;Product DevelopmentReviews: qIn sum, this interesting book illustrates that the simple dichotomy between open and closed approaches for innovation is not realistic, and that there are pitfalls to open innovation. This book can certainly be useful to managers trying to keep up with the fast changing environment and with the current challenges of innovation, but is more useful to academic scholars.q Paulo Figueiredo... they worked closely with Motorola and Verizon in developing the phone Droid before the source code was revealed ...
