How do you prepare to overcome the implementation barriers in an open innovation environment? What types of issues need to be considered? How can you prevent fear of violated IPR issues becoming show-stoppers in your open innovation process? And how can common pitfalls be avoided? These are some of the challenges that will be discussed in the November 10th IM Channel One live webcast.


In order to deliver better quality and more competitive products and services in a more cost effective manner, many companies embark on an “innovation journey” with the hope of  increasing levels of innovation, collaboration and information sharing. In the November 10th live session some of the basic prerequisites that you need to get started will be addressed.

Date & time: November 10, 2011 at 15:00 – 15.45 CET

Main Speaker: David Burns – CEO, Induct – the Open Innovation Company.

 

Topic: Next Generation Open Innovation – What Are the Basic Prerequisites and what do I Need to Get Started?

“This webcast is primarily for innovation practitioners who believe in the benefits of Next Generation Innovation, but still need help for the organizational and technical planning to get started,” says presenter David Burns, CEO from Induct who will also discuss questions raised by the participants.

Challenges addressed in the November 10th session

In this 45 minutes session Induct will share some important findings from their last three years of studies and research projects from innovation practice. You will understand how innovation life cycle processes and structures can be put in place to motivate, manage and move thousands of people into next generation innovation communities.

Some of the challenges that will be addressed are:

  • How do you prepare to overcome the implementation barriers in an open innovation environment?
  • What types of issues need to be considered?
  • How to prevent fear of violated IPR issues becoming show-stoppers in your open innovation process?

Expected take always from the session

This webcast will suggest a preparation framework that will help companies become more successful with their innovation journey.  An extensible and flexible model is suggested that will allow companies to start slowly and then gradually build their innovation capacity.  A structured approach to the journey provides guidance at each step of the way.
